  • Looks like Utah is tanking this game against San Antonio. Their starting line up is pretty interesting.

    • James Harden’s 39 points help Rockets past shorthanded Lakers

      This was the headline.
      Of course it didn't mention that Houston didn't have Westbrook and still outbombed LA 21 of 67 to 2 of 19 from 3

      That's right; 67 three pt attempts ....

      Not a giant fan of Harden or especially Westbrook but I'd still love them to knock out both LA's

            The Raptors are in the finals and its game seven in the West in the "Battle of LA". Who do you want, Clippers or Lakers? It sounds like the Clippers. That's also the best basketball story imaginable for this season in my opinion anyway.
            Tough call, actually. I'll go with the Clippers. This roster would get a lot of satisfaction out of beating Kawhi in the Finals, giving last year's chip some perspective. Beating Lebronto would also be fun, but I think there'd be some excuses there re: his age and lack of help.

                • Just watched an espn segment with matt barnes, RJ and a talking head. Talking about how much of a big win the Bucks had against the heat. A butler less heat the other day. Which makes them have a better chance to make the finals over the raps.
                  Ummm where were you the other day? We beat that team that actually had there best player available

                      Dragic also didn't play in that game and the Heat almost pulled it off.

                            It's not looking good for a guy who fully healthy looked unstoppable

                            Dr. Brian Sutterer has become a well-known analyst of sports injuries on YouTube and Twitter and was recently interviewed by Ethan Sherwood Strauss of The Athletic about Zion Williamson.

                            Williamson's minutes have been closely managed by the New Orleans Pelicans and hasn't looked as explosive during the NBA's restart.

                            “He’s in a race against his own body,” Dr. Sutterer said over the phone. “If you go watch his Duke highlights compared to now, the difference is profound. In my opinion, his athleticism and conditioning have regressed substantially. He’s less explosive, less conditioned, slower on defense, has already had a portion of his meniscus removed from his knee after an injury, and he’s still under close monitoring from the medical staff.”

                            Williamson sees a troubling long-term trend with Williamson.

                            “I feel like nobody really wants to call it like we all see it,” Dr. Sutterer said. “He’s trying to reverse a career trajectory that by the Pelicans’ own admission is worrisome as evidenced by his ‘reprogramming’ and scrutinized minutes. He had four months to start making positive strides and to me he’s regressed more. When will he finally start to reverse course? Will it be in time before more substantial fitness concerns and injuries limit him and threaten his career? Instead of outpacing these risks, I’m worried that Zion is losing the race.”

                            • If i have to pick right now what rookie i want to build my team around. Im picking Ja. Sure Zion may have more potential but the chances he reaches that dont look too promising.
                              I would give a 75% chance right now that Ja has a better career.

                                Lots of us have been skeptical that Zion can play an 82-game season since the fall (I remember a few of us discussing it on here right before he got injured). I don't know if he's too fat or out of shape or injured or hurt or whatever but just watching him play its's obvious he can't physically handle the demands of the NBA game. This was true in October and it is true now.

                                Hopefully, they get it sorted out but this bubble experience was not encouraging.
