    The wins are few and far between, but that was sweet as sweet.

    NBA 2019/2020 Thread

    Oh no, thereís a media bias against the Rockets?

    https://spacecityscoop.com/2019/12/2...ts-media-bias/

    Itís all made up. Harden really doesnít fuck up game flow by drawing 12 fouls shots a game? Rockets management isnít constantly whining about unfair treatment? Rockets really have won a championship (in a parallel universe)? Rocketsí PGs Westbrook or CP3 really arenít red asses on the court with reputations for being challenging to work with? Rockets donít have the moderately talented Austin Rivers frequently running his mouth? The Rockets really donít run a high variance Morey-ball analytics driven game where they go 0 for 27 from 3 to lose close out games...

    No wonder Rockets fans feel persecuted; they have to watch this shit and root for it...

    What? No.

    Look at those 4 straight finals he took the Cavs to the finals (and the one in 07), he strapped those teams to his back and made everyone around him better. Even JR.

    He was among league leaders (top 5 a few of those years) in assists too. Heís the greatest player weíve seen since Jordan, of course heís going to want the ball. But not a team player? That doesnít align with what actually happened.

Even this year the lakers are now a favorite in the west when most had them finishing in the middle of the pack at the start of the season. Plus he said he refuses to take games off like other stars in the league.

    Just the fact that he went to 8 straight finals disproves your theory.
    This.

    it's not pretty. no one uses the foul as much as harden and the majority of plays seems to be harden walking up the floor and trying to pull off a foul if nothing develops while he dribbles the clock down. I imagine westbrook wonders what he got himself into

    The Jazz addition of Clarkson could be a HUGE move. First time the bench has looked good all year! By the way Danno, I stand by my comment of taking Mitchell over Tatum (yes I am a homer), he is quickly catching Karl Malone for the most 30 point games.
    Samuel L. Jackson as Jules Winnfield: Oh, I'm sorry. Did I break your concentration?

    That was a great trade.... Exum has Air Bud handles and was always hurt, I would have traded him for the gum stuck to the bottom the bleachers in Cleveland. I hope Mike Conley gets healthy and starts competing because he's making me wish we held onto Rubio who is having a career season with the Suns.

    Trade of the year:
    Jordan Clarkson for Dante Exum.

    We thought Mike Conley was the answer but Clarkson has been playing awesome. No doubt his addition is huge reason why the jazz are on a 13-0 run

    Jazz are scoring from many areas/people, just want their D to tighten back up.

    Bwahaha I never realized that, but so true.
    in the long run, watching Hayward leave the jazz was one of those things that really worked out well for the Jazz. talk about dodging a bullet with that one. Enjoy that huge contract for a role player, Celts.

    Iíll take it, but what a shitty call at the end of Jazz Pels regulation. I donít think Iíve ever seen that called there.

    I am of the belief that if you don't play above .500 ball, you should be disqualified from the playoffs.
    Just over half way in season and 13 of top 16 are above .500 Maybe they could do like FB. Top 6 per with top 2 getting a bye.

    get rid of playoff games??? ya that's not going to happen. The NBA has increased the number of playoff games over the past 20 years, i don't think they'll be reducing the playoff games anytime soon. I don't really see it as a problem and I like the teams in the west that are on the bubble. I think the spurs or blazers or grizzles or suns in the playoffs would be a good thing and maybe take a game or two in the first round. Not as big of a fan of the below 500 teams in the east though.

    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    NBA 2019/2020 Thread

    Here is where the difference between ďsports hateĒ and ďreal hateĒ shows up...tragic, especially the reports about his 4 kids.

    Edit: now reports that kids NOT on board. Letís hope for the latter

    One more edit: Eldest daughter, Gianna, was on board

    And he was being a good dad flying her and a friend / teammate to a basketball game. Fuck.......

    I'm not saying this cynically at all, but I can see the Lakers winning it all this year in a big Kobe tribute. There's going to be a lot of emotion.

    I could see it, and would still root for Eastern Conf opponent playing Lakers...
