Ladies and Gentlemen, your Joey Crawford for the 2016-17 season, the rest of the referees!
Joey Crawford is a faggot but he never really screwed the Raps. This motherfucker on the hand always seems to be the one who makes calls against us. As soon as I see he's reffing I know we lost
Not even talking about the gs match. The entire Boston series couple years ago, the 10± apologies the NBA sent to the team for wrong calls past couple seasons, that man had reffed almost all of em
fucking nerd. o jack off to tentacles faggot, this is /nba/, a board of men, not of manchildren.
the lakers are winning too much. This larry nance in the starting line-up must go, scott needs to let him rot on the bench while operation :tank for simmons is in effect. this is ridiculous. 3 straight games, he is jeopardizing the future of the Lakers....but that clarkson dunk though, get rekt phoenix, GET REKT OCD.
Anyone read freedarkos books? One of the goat illustrations right here
yes, but just by a hair. Nance has a legit mid-range jumper. Randle's is a little streaky so i think he settles for attacking the basket (bully tactics). Nance can also jump higher.
>Suns owner Robert Sarvertold the Arizona Republicthat the "blame is to be shared from the top down," he thinks millennial culture is part of what's causing the Suns' disastrous season.
>"I'm not sure it's just the NBA,"Sarver said. "My whole view of the millennial culture is that they have a tough time dealing with setbacks, andMarkieff Moriss is the perfect example. He had a setback with his brother in the offseason and he can't seem to recover from it.
>"I'm not sure if it's the technology or the instant gratification of being online. But the other thing is, I'm not a fan of social media. I tell my kids it's like Fantasyland. The only thing people put online are good things that happen to them, or things they make up. And it creates unrealistic expectations. We've had a number of setbacks this year that have taken their toll on us, and we haven't been resilient. Therefore, it's up to our entire organization to step up their game."
>these kids and their dabbing and dibbing and cellular mobiles.
>what happened to the good old gambling and alcohol addictions we used to have
>3 wins in a row
>lou, clarkson, randle all being sent to the bench
top 3 players on the lakers right now, byron is not making the tank stealthy...not at all.. i have clarkson and randle on my fantasy team. FML.
just saw dwyane wade on dc. he started dancing and being a meme but the webm is too big.
>lebron leaving has forced wade to appear on disney channel and make a fool of himself for extra money
You mean the guy who took a discount for the Suns so he could stay close to his brother decides to mentally check out after you renegade on that deal and trade his brother? That's all on you senpai, playing badly to force a trade is pretty much the only leverage he has in the situation.
Fucking boomer culture.
>DeAndre Jordan will break Wilt Chamberlain's FG% in a season record
>He's currently shooting .727%
>He's made 25 out of his last 28
im waiting KD, if you ever read this, come home to L.A. You saw what we did to the suns, thats what we could be doing to warriors, but we are missing you. You are the final piece to the dynasty.
coach scott brooks
asst coach byron scott
player development coach Kobe bryant.....
all we do now lakers nation, all we have to do now is wait......we out here...
>tfw your doggos will never be as qt as my gfs
YO 7TK WHERE YOU AT
Can you please shop manus face into costanza
>tfw breaking up with my gf tonight or tomorrow and will never see her qt doggos again
Wish my luck guys
Your cousin is hot
She's going back to school 4 hours away on Saturday. There are a bunch of other reasons but I think that's the main one
She got me the rap year book by shea serrano for Christmas but I haven't read it yet
Basketball is my favorite sport. I like the way they dribble up and down the court
I don't really want to be invested in a relationship with a girl who fucks other guys
I also don't think she'd go for it
I hear that's a cool book, at the very least it'll look nice on your coffee table
>not just fucking your ex occasionally without an "open" label
I really don't know how people do open relationships
Yeah no way I'm doing an open relationship desu
I'm really worried my gf will go crazy and try and kill herself desu
GET REKT BY THE LAKEYS OCD!
And last night she was asking me if I'd break up with her before she went back to school and I choked hard and said I wouldn't and shit
I'm such a pussy
OMG! MONKEY'S HAVE GAINED THE ABILITY TO SEND TWEETS!
you'd need to hit me with something much stronger than weed to make me sit through that shit
as for curry's leg he just needs some time out, he'll be fine for the playoffs
Toronto about to show the Cavs why the Raps will win the ECF title
rollin the dice on a mega punt lineup.
Every week or so he has a 30 fantasy point game with a bunch of 2 fantasy point games in between.
Heaven help me.
i don't tho, i just saw an article for it
I'm >>64689565 and I got a second lineup w/ westy,hood, draymond, withey and bosh. great minds think alike? I hate mills and CJ Miles tho. Never rostered stauskas either
>listening to country music but not death metal
yea im big on draymond w/o or w/a gimpy curry, bosh w/o whiteside, and obviously westbrook w/o durant. had to fill in the rest with some scrubs.
just throwing a hail mary here desu. if CJ Miles gets hot he can put up a 45 point fantasy night. If Patty Mills and Stauskas can bring me a combined 50 fantasy points I'll be happy.
But both have ceilings in the 30s with floors in the single digits.
if I hit it I can win some nice cash, but it's more than likely a dud.
After the Raptors trounced the Crappaliers on the 25th of November Bismack Biyombo claimed the Raptors were "tougher" then the Suckaliers. LeFlop usually responds to comments like this by deactivating chill mode, however Kyle Lowry will be in beat down bulldog mode and the Raptors will spank the Stinkaliers on their home court. Go Raptors!
country music is always about being in a bar or how great the USA is or their fucking broke down truck
death metal is just as shit and is always just talking about demonic and disturbing violent or sadistic shit
>not listening to throwback 90s conscious hip-hop
>expecting to enjoy NBA basketball at it's full potential
desu that's why RBL was never really out here in the first place, any hear that trash single that Kanye put out?
Whenever I make them I just say team x (their record here) @ team y (their record here)
And then maybe some other shit depending on who's playing, like an l.a. owl if it's the Lakers vs clippers or something
Alternative country can be alright sometimes. Jesus country can go to hell.
>tfw nobody from either fanbase cares enough to make a gamethread
not sure anymore whether it's the decline of spee or just bad seasons so people are doing other shit
>Pacers vs Heat on NBATV instead of based Giannis vs the redditors
iS jr smith seriously expected to be a starter on a contender? I dont think so. He is a role player, streaky bench player who can score in bunches. A starter on a contender, NO.
>yfw the Raptors would be beating the Cavs if Carroll wasn't injured
>mfw would of, should of, could of, faggot
>memeball vs twin towers
Face it, this is the best possible outcome.
joke's on (You). You live in Cleveland faggot. I bet you don't even have comfy atmospheres in that shithole. I can just look outside my window and feel satisfied.
>shorter than his wife
>cucked by a white insurance salesman
sounds about right
Brandon Jennings is back
As a sixers fan, i'm completely renounced to the fact that Simmons will be a Laker. The storyline is too perfect.
>so here's the new face of the franchise
>NO PRESSURE LOL
>oh and how about those silly sixers, they thought they had a chance to land the lakers draft pick, sam hinkie is such an awful man, he's the cancer of the NBA, worst record and they don't even end up with the best player LOL
The sixers will end up with Brandon Ingram or fucking whoever the concensus 3rd best player in this draft will be (Kris Dunn?) and sixers fans will just have to deal with it.
Simmons is going to the Lakers.
The NBA has had this set in stone for years.
> After Los Angeles Lakers forward Julius Randle was visibly upset at being taken out late in his team's blowout win over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday, coach Byron Scott had a message for the team's promising power forward.
>"He's got to grow up," Scott said Monday after the Lakers' practice at their facility. "Simple as that."
Someone fire this man before Russell and Randle demand trades
we are getting those to random guys in the back to in the second round...
At the Blazers/Grizzlies game, wishing for a wet ass 3 from Lillard
Yeah, that's why i'm not too upset.
Plus, the Sixers don't really need another frontcourt guy. They've got a huge logjam there already moving forward
>Embiid and the possibility that he could someday get healthy
>Holmes, who looks like a keeper and the best 2nd round pick this team has made under Hinkie
>Saric, who has already said he's coming over next season
And that's not even counting all of "muh veteran presence" that they're bringing on now.
Part of me has a feeling that at least one of Embiid or Okafor will not be in this team's future.
you like our roster? thats not even all the dank free agents we will get that will be attracted by durant.
This is actually something worthwhile by Scott. If your guy can't handle being played within a team's concept, which involves such things as minutes distribution, then he's gonna be a cancer for years to come. Getting on Randle's case is a worthwhile decision there.
he will hit the rookie wall, he will need to be mentored
>why doesnt a team try to sign cousins AND durant? it only makes sense imo
it does actually
>there's a timeout, shot clock issue, moisture on the court, etc
>every fucking autistic disaster in the arena starts unleashing bloodcurdling screams
it's not even appropriate for sports, why do people do this shit
The Lakers are going too.
Tank for a top 3 pick and then trade it for some more assets.
Ladies and gentlemen, your 2016-17 Lakers
who do you guys think the cavs will end up signing with their trade exception?
I think it'll be another wing roleplayer like morris from the suns. him and jr will kick it off, and he'll only be like a 30 min flight from his bro in Detroit
nigga i cant be assed to fix the reflection but here you go
/nba/ is so scared right now, all the potential goat line-ups is rustling jimmies softly...
> Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott said he wants the team's young players to progress at a faster rate -- or they'll be sitting on the bench.
>"I think when you make a mistake over and over again, sometimes that wood has a good way of talking to your butt a little bit, too," Scott said

Projected Finals Match-up: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. San Antonio Spurs
>Top 3 Draft Order
All going according to plan
No, I don't mean of all time (it's clear that Bobcats record isn't being broken), but whether the Lakers or Suns will end up with a worse overall record. The Sixers have won 3 of their last 7.
>tfw kawhi leonard wins MVP, DPOY, finals MVP this year
excuse me, 57% from the field and 52% from 3p
lmao kawhi leonard is a fucking joke when guarding him
I don't think they'll do that. Lakers and Suns actually have players with talent on them. Guys like Bledsoe, Knight and Clarkson aren't gonna let those teams finish below the Sixers.
>Plus Russ is coming down here to Miami.
this post just tore my achilles.
turn your trip back on tanne-kuck
why did dumbass lebron go to cleveland? sure, theyll go to the finals, but he couldve had a fucking LEGENDARY team with the heat if he stayed
Still all star quality Bosh, emerging all stars in Whiteside and Winslow, and the pure veteran in Wade. I don't see why he wouldn't want to come here. Ship Goran out and it can get done. If that doesn't play out Durant is also an option. Never doubt Pat Riley son, don't forget the shit he can organize. Don't even get me started on Tannepleb pls.
Because he is an insecure little faggot. He cares more about what people say about him on the Internet than what he could of won and did to solidify his legacy. But if he stayed we prob wouldn't have landed Winslow and that would suck cause this kid is a stud and has the possibility to be the face of thre league in 4+ years. Also just roasted those faggot Pacers after major comeback. I love this team man.
when will this man just give up and retire?
Yeah, Suns do seem quite short without him. Sixers could get a better record but I don't think they will, just think Suns are having a real rough patch just now, and the Lakers are doing better of late anyway.
You're forgetting that 90% of those points were against Diaw or in transition.
Also, Spurs gave him the 3-point shot because that's the least efficient part of his game.
Learn basketball before you just randomly select stats without context.
It's a business you fag. Funny hearing that from a fucking laker pleb. "We're signing everyone!" You're organization is shit, it died with Jim. Cherish your memories, you'll be the new bulls fans soon.
It's only business when its convenient for that slicked back heartless bastard you call President
when it's time for players to take a paycut, it becomes "hur dur heat la famila, take one for the team"
He needs to soon so he can get to his real life's work.
No Pat sits down with him and says "Dwyane you have the knees of a 50 year old jew and your game is super flaky these days. You can stay here for less money and we can bring in some guys around you or you can leave for more money and we can build an ultimately better team that will bounce you out of the post season. I leave the choice to you." And Wade chooses wisely. The fire rises.
if your team isn't .500 in its last 6 games you can't reply to this post of an amazing dunk by the next GOAT to play in the nba
rest of /nba/ are you even trying?
They're always scary man. I fucking was pulling for the thunder so hard back in 2014, the Spurs were the one team I did not want to play and they beat our ass. Shit Lebron even ran away after.
SOME ONE SEEMS JELLY
let me guess you are a knisck fan.
I think he's a lakers fan, some anon posted about how Durant is going to LA and bringing like every FA there and I said Lel no such and such will prob Coke to Miami and then he went off.
whats my dick taste like
We drink water straight out the Aquifer nigga.
Spurs have a direct line and often go swimming in the water. Their collective jizzum supplies the rest of the city with glorious strength and it is our worship of them that grants them their power.
>implying he isn't going to SA
Now that LMA and West went and it's showing SA being a fucking powerhouse everyone wants to go..I can already see Durant there as well for no fucking reason at all. Hell he isn't even signed he just had a custom jersey made and just walks on the court.
I got 12th row seats for $60 when we played Cuckadelphia. Ended up being a shitty game for us that turned into a great one right at the end. The Okafor is a big goy.
>implying Bosh will leave Miami for the lakers
>is something funny
he will come when durant comes.
New dfs rule. Shooting guards vs Raptors. Had JR smith in my lineup all day because of this but decided to go for waiters at the last minute because the cavs have so much scoring options. This decision screwed me over hundreds of dollars
>not knowing basic maths
can't believe you made me look this shit up
Bogut Dunk % this season: 96.2%
Klay Thompson 3P% this season: 42.6%
Points per Bogut dunk attempt: 1.924
Points per Klay 3 attempt: 1.278
Bogut dunks get you more points over time. If you can't accept that you're retarded.
>team getting literally blown out
>only using as many possessions per minute as in the regular season
When you go 9-14 in 40 minutes and your team loses by 20, it's your fault your team lost. Not to mention he was the worst defender on the floor and got destroyed by every player they tried to hide him on.
Would you rather see there Jeremy Lin or the current one.
>KD TRACKS HIS NUMBERS IN HIS HEAD OBSESSIVELY THROUGHOUT GAMES, DOWN TO TURNOVERS, ASSISTS, WHAT HE’S SHOOTING FROM THE FLOOR, REBOUNDS AND OF COURSE, POINTS. I REMEMBER A GAME LAST SEASON WHERE DURANT THREW A HALF-OOP, HALF-SHOT OUT OF BOUNDS. HE CAME OVER TO THE SCOREKEEPER AND ASKED HIM IF HE HAD SCORED IT A TURNOVER OR A SHOT ATTEMPT. THE SCOREKEEPER SAID TURNOVER, TO WHICH DURANT SAID, “GOOD, I’D RATHER HAVE A TURNOVER THAN A MISS.”
Then you're not a real fan, poor ass faggot.
Support the team or go support a shit team like the raptors.
Well all those "cheap" sites sell fakes. Go on to Ebay and find some cheap used jerseys. Don't buy anything from any Asian country, fake almost every single time. Also if you know how to spot fakes hat will help when looking through the listings. Also stop being a pleb and buy at least one new one with your fave player.
Harden was such a little bitch about it, though
I hoped they banned the right guy. Been to Jazz games a couple of times and they have a reputation of kicking people out without proof
Last month, they threw out a whole row for "fighting," right in front of me. There was some sort of mixup with the section across from us where a brawl broke out and they refused to admit their mistake.
In that row that was kicked out was apparently some producer for Disney and if he hadn't complained, I imagine it would have gone unnoticed.
Successfully uncucked himself from towel faith by cucking to his wife. Interesting.
Was Steve Clifford named after the big red dog? Pic related.
i'm on the lebron badwagon son
just here to confirm we are not "btfo" by some green and yellow elves shooting 3s
Warriors win it this year and they're automatically better than the Heat ever were senpai.
Cleveland is gonna get BTFO in the finals if they even make it there. The East is actually pretty stronk the year.
You faggots are the worst. When he was down here all I would see on social media is you Fucking plebs posting that heat nation bullshit. I hope we match up with Cleveland in the playoffs and bounce those fags out.
The Heat going to get that sweet revenge served DWade style
no. Licking sweat off of hot chicks that just got done working out
Based Whiteside blocks your faggotry. Bandwagon plebs are the absolute WORST.
alrightfam you too mad for me right now. ill talk to you after miami gets btfo of the playoffs again to see if you're still talkin that shit
Why would the Cavs only go 52-30? They're on pace for 58 wins and they've only looked full strength a couple of games ago. They'll probably go 62-20.
I predict the Warriors go 69-13.
I know some anon was asking for this in the game thread last night, forgot to post it...
Easy to be efficient, yes. Having the second-highest FG% of all time is a different matter. There's no shortage of players who've had the exact same role as DeAndre, and none of them did it better.
context was that he made a fadeaway with like 0.5 seconds left, so yeah, mamba face
So, /nba/, give me your best 5 out of players starting games on the bench this season.
Hard mode: No 6th men that would start if they fit with the starters better e.g. IT4 and Will the Thrill
