>dirk just chilling on top of the pile
why arent other superstars this cool? you cant imagine kobe or durant doing that...maybe lebron, but even then, he makes it look forced
Without spoiling shit, she's an orphan and grew up in a shitty place without any manners. Kinda makes sense desu.
This, also the booing of players who left your team the year before
>looking at you Rondo
how your knee feeling brah?
You are overrating Green a lot. He's a meme player, would be a 7th man on every other team that runs an actual offense and not "hand the ball to curry and get out of the way."
HOW THE FUCK DO YOU EVER STOP THIS TEAM?!?!?!?!?!
>Dray is a meme player
I want this meme to die.
Even if you take out his offensive contribution (hustle and threes, which is alright), he's so versatile on defense that he's elite already. No meme players get all those trip dubs when Curry's out, unless you thought Westbrook was memeing last year too.
>Back to back triple doubles
there's craptors against tragic and bucks knicks I think
I think they just want to get the uk audience before the nfl gets it, but everyone here has a huge hate boner for American sports just because they're American, whilst simultaneously loving shit like the super bowl.
I don't think the nba will ever take off here but at least it means next year i'll probably be able to make it to an nba game.

Yeah I've had a multiple position player before but in 2k16 I've only made a 6'5 pg/sg
In earlier versions I liked making faceup big men. It sucks how in this one you start with like a 55 overall

Just fuck my entire life up family
you're right desu, I'm lean af right now but stiff and not flexible. I'm lazy as shit but you're right you need cardio for actual fun things that people do. any tips? or do you just play basketball (I fucking hate running)?
good breh we all need thicc gfs...
Get a step box, that works you pretty good and gives you nice legs. Jump rope is cheap, burns shit loads of fat and makes your legs look good, also try lateral movement drills in your backyard to help your jukes/footwork. If your city offers a fighting club like boxing or mma that's a really good way to up your cardio and meet chill bros.
You're right about running, it's boring as shit and doesn't seem to help much with the quick reflex movements needed in basketball that gas you instantly.
Did the file size limit get changed on /sp/ or 4ch as a whole? I've got a bunch of older gifs that I got from here that I can't upload anymore. Shitty.

Fuck yeah some or all of these should be good.
I go with a group of friends and we run a circuit 3 times. You could probably find it online, but it's like you run each workout for 1 minute w/ 45 seconds rest between each workout then a 3 minute rest between each set.
Alternate just bouncing up and down off each leg off the box
Football style crossovers
High jumps (if they're height adjustable
Repeat that 3 sets changing the time/reps as needed and you should feel a good increase in cardio after a month if you're consistent.
how often you do the circuit? this definitely seems like something I can squeeze into a leg day. thanks for the tips man
we all start somewhere, planks for a little more than a minute isn't that bad. if you're trying to increase time I increased mine to almost 4 min (not crazy by any means just giving a basis for comparison) with a plate on my upper back until failure for a couple of months. I'm mediocre at planks right now since I haven't done them in a while
Check this video out (hopefully it links right, ESPNs website is shit, but its the video where the "lakers" fan is putting on a warriors jersey)
this was staged, the guys in front of me were ESPN employees, they even were talking about their jobs during halftime (apparently Karen is a big tease).
they did this "scene" about three or four times, and they said "ok ok here comes the NBA TV camera."
pretty sad desu that ESPN has fallen this far to sending interns out to hype up the warriors
shit as always senpai
2K really has the 3 last years put out some shit games but EA is the king of shit
something better be lost in translation because pull ups/chin ups are not better for core than planks. one of the best all-around bodyweight exercises tho. I'm assuming this isn't kneesbrah because an always-injured skeleton has no room to talk about this shit
nah with a 25 or 35. you can progress really quickly to a 45 tho
>people rostering russell "11k" westbrook over kemba against phoenix
His stats + rings (even though the miami ones shouldnt count) make him top 10 if he retired at this pace.
If he loses again, I'd say he's borderline top 10, right around or below Hakeem and David Robinson
Give me your top 10, because I don't see it. Even if you put bird/magic and russell/wilt together to save spots, he's still barely top 10
For ex, this is mines:
>LeBrons peak was better than Kobes tho
No, objectively wrong. Efficient doesn't mean better, at his best Kobe (as well as TMac and maybe even Gilbert) were fucking unstoppable.
LeBron was always hampered by his inconsistent outside shot one year, or by his post game another year. Plus, his years in Miami dillude his achievements because he went out of his way to play with superstars unlike Kobe who was drafted to a shit Lakers team with no chemistry and Nick Van Exel who chucked the ball once he crossed mid court
>just borderline top 10
so youre saying if he makes the finals and loses, its worse than not making the finals at all?
seems silly to me. the only finals loss that was his fault was the second one. the first one they had no shot at winning, the 2nd one they should have won, the third and fourth they did win, the fifth d wade and bosh basically didnt exist, and the 6th love and kyrie literally werent playing and he still won 2 games against a historically good team. how is he a choker aside from some of his earlier years in cuckland and that first year with the heat?
youre right, kobe just got to play with shaq, better than any player lebum has ever played with, without even having to change teams. and oh, he wanted to change teams at one point. but kobe is just #soloyal
>bailed out of 2013 by ray allen
>winning in game 1 2014 finals then choking and cramping
>played like shit 2015 finals chucking because he can't shoot
yeah nah not top 10, sure as FUCK not too 5
I don't feel like listing out my top 10. I would put lebron over kobe, bird, and probably duncan. Probably over magic and Hakeem too. Lebron is a lot better than you give credit to. There were a few years where he was damn near unstoppable. His 2 30 ppg seasons and his 2013 season were downright dominant
>he went out of his way to play with superstars
I mean I guess so. The cavs rosters were fucking awful dude. They weren't going to get better while he was there. They were always going to be terrible. The Lakers were lucky to get shaq/pau while he was there
I kinda agree. I think the first cavs chip team was fucking shit outside of him and mo will was average at best. The 2 heat loses suck tho, the first was shitty. The second loss was more eh because he was playing one of the best teams of all time. This last loss he had 2 injured stars against another GOAT team
>demarre carroll just had knee surgery
>no timetable for his return
at least we'll see more of based neck tat
I wouldn't put Lebron over Bird, Lebron would never beat the showtime Lakers or Hakeem. He would not make it out the Eastern conference at that point in time
Duncan is ridiculous as well
who's 2k ratings are going down this next year? Who's are going up?
I think he would beat them. Not every year, but I'm sure he'd win a few chips in the 80s or the 90s if jordan didnt exist. It's not like Bird didn't also have a stacked team. The 2012-2013 season LeBron was just an absolutely ridiculous year.
Also "bailed out by Ray Allen" comments are so silly. Who put them in the position to tie that game by scoring 16 points in the 4th quarter? who scored 37 points including 5 3s in the game 7? LeBron won that series, Allen was a big part of it but you can't win an entire championship on one shot.
Lakers management was good enough to bring shaq and pau to the Lakers
Cavs management never got a single good player for lebron. That's the difference. They were never going to get any good players for him.
yeah, Shaq came in 1996, same year Kobr was drafted. Kobe never had to leave because he had Shaq with him from the start. LeBron never got a shaq, so he left. This was after 7 years of trying to play with that shit team.
I'm a raptors fan you tard, any canadian who is a clippers fan is a massive cuck
I probably do it 2-3 times a week if I'm going to the regular gym depending on what else I do. If i go to the boxing gym I'll only do it once because boxing workouts fuck you up and you need some serious recovery time/icing.
But I don't want to be a meathead, I just want lean, functional muscles for fast paced sports, so if you're looking to pack on mass stay away from these types of workouts.
nahh your the clippers canadian who likes to delete his posts
nice try though
>LeBron never got a Shaq
>LeBron literally got a Shaq
sure he wasn't prime Shaq but why are you blaming Kobe for the fact that no one wanted to play in Cleveland???
Regular season MVPs are purely a popularity contest. Remember that it took years for Kobe's reputation to repair after the rape case, even though he was innocent, beta voters didn't want to be associated with him.
That's what a traditional white boy like that cuck Nash got MVPs while Kobe plotted his revenge in a underground lair somewhere in a hidden location
>this Kobe dick riding delusion
Go check Kobe's regular season stats and check Lebrons. You win mvps by being the player that contributes the most to your team across all levels, not being a ball hogging chucker that drives away every good teammate he's had.
Btw when you leave a team and they immediately go from finals contender to bottom feeder, then instantly back to finals contender when you come back it speaks a lot louder than sitting around on a team dragging them to the bottom of the league with your inflated contract when you're complete shit/washed up as a player.
Don't worry, when all the Kobe craze (read: Shaq and pau doing the work Kobe getting the shine) wears off people will start to take note of the MVP disparity and accept how much better Lebron is.
by a shaq I obviously mean a prime player who is top 10 all time by almost everyones estimate. Shaq wasn't just not in his prime, he was WAY out of it. I'm not blaming Kobe for it, I'm explaining why LeBron left and you can't compare him leaving and Kobe staying, their circumstances were way different.
I don't think Kobe was the "best in the game" longer than LeBron, I think LeBron's was a bit longer than Kobe, but I do think it's pretty close. LeBron had about 6 years in a row where he was clearly the best in the game, and a few where it was arguable.
I feel you on the meathead bit, my body type is weight class powerlifter (wide back, qt legs, comparatively skinnier arms)
not a fan of the "functional muscles" rhetoric but you're /nba/ and therefore based by default. 2-3 week plyo stuff it is, thanks mang
All I meant by that was I don't want to be someone who all they do is powerlift 5 days a week that can lift a boulder off the ground but can't jump 3 inches or sprint more than 15 seconds.
But yea anyone in /nba/ is 1000x more based than any other general
gotcha man, the word "functional" triggers me is all. you're right, you can be an unhealthy slob but still be good at lifting. being lean is where it's at desu and it isn't even hard. thanks again for the plyo tips hopefully it helps my explosiveness
You should lift.
You must be a manlet.
My PG isnt even 170cm, but hes a fucking TANK.
Hes the only dude in my team that didnt got injured the past 4 seasons.
He plays 30+ minutes per game.
Dont be that faggot at the gym that does bodyweight exercises.
He is having a pretty decent year despite his age.
>players that are going up
Winslow will have at least at 80 rating hugely due to his defense.
Bosh is the best player in the heat.
Eric Bledsoe (before injury)
Hassan whiteside (4.0 bpg plus rebounding and scoring)
look everyone! he called a british guy Muhammad!! ahahahahahaha
holy fuck! the comedian!!
britain has 5% max of its population that is muslim. and it's not offensive calling someone that so fuck off with that garbage
>the entire Dallas Mavericks team is listed as OUT tonight for rest
Small Forward+All Around and just get good. It's impossible to play every position with anything but your 2K skill. My 97 Overall SF averages 10 steals per game only because of my hundreds of hours spent on 2K.
my favorite thing to yell
that and rROOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNDDDDDDDDDDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
ask the Andersons, they got tickets to the game.
>they are not sold out.
>tfw you realize ever since based Delly BTFO of Korver and Demarre last playoffs they've been playing like dogshit
coach nick videos are pretty good for understanding ball at a basic level. just watch games and get a feel for the flow. if you're looking for history Bill Simmons' book of basketball is a great primer
Should the NBA MVP have to be a complete player and play at least serviceable defense?
Derrick Rose was the last MVP winner that played awful defense, though he did be improving since he won MVP and is better than cat used to be.
Watch as much ball as you can (like actually watch and analyze what they're doing not just brainlessly watch) then go play at your nearest rec. Playing/emulating moves from good players is the best way to learn.
David West has been shooting a career best FG% this season, granted he only takes 5 shots a game
He's been a pretty good fit for the Spurs
Ok so it looks like this is going to be one of those le memes that kind of half assed takes off after that guy lost his shit earlier, but will make a resurgence at the right time in a week or so and be fucking hilarious
raptors win skrreeonk
cheer up bud, there's plenty of hi-test gfs for everyone. sorry about the wiz tho ahahahhahahah
>she found my history cache
were you browsing any porn?

see:plugs on wall
i dont like the beach
its 2016 get an ipod
too cold for that, get carpet you pleb
what are you? some sort of primitive tribeswoman?
poorhealth, needs more vitamin c
literally only good thing about this girl is the laptop to watch NBA and shitpost.
I don't know who to believe anymore
>mfw go wiz getting BTFO was brought to you by /RBL-SEE/
broshipped into the shadow eternal
Rbl twitter guy = go wizards = harry
7kt and spc exposed this long ago but no one wanted to believe it
Thank god the jannies and mods have cleaned up this general though, sometimes its a little much but curryposting is almost nothing compared to what it used to be
>tfw come home to knicks game
>tfw missed it
>tfw knicks won
Rather comfy desu
Who here /porzingis/? ROTY family
What have they cleaned up? The Spudora summer was >our proudest moment since the heat/Mavs finals. It's literally just take the reigning champs' best player and make memes about them all summer
because your team is literally shook, or you just hate fun.
IT is cool.
Fucking Celts laid an egg in the 2nd half. At least we got an exciting game.
>wiz4lyfe overexposed himself and made himself a target
it was a matter of time, really.
I'm shook and i can't get up
Was pretty based, even it only lasted that night.
And when they dubbed the Inside crew over those guys going crazy and flipping the table, that was pretty fucking funny if anyone remembers that.
>shaved and got a haircut for the first time in almost half a year today
i looked homeless before and now i just look like a baby.
there truly is no winning this game of life
C.J. McCollum was mistakenly put on the inactive list by coach Terry Stotts, so he will not play.
This is a weird one. McCollum went through warmups and even the team reporter said McCollum was active and starting. It's possible McCollum can't play because of a clerical error in the lineup sheet.
WHAT THE FUCK
>C.J. McCollum is active and is expected to come off the bench on Wednesday.
> This is a mess. McCollum has started all of his active games this year, but there was a lot of talk of him being the sixth man. Maybe this is the start of a new role. Regardless, he's still a high-end fantasy asset.
> Crisis averted. McCollum should be ready to go, but we'll be watching his possible left shoulder ailment. Get him in your lineups tonight.
>not having the timeless classic "shorter fade on sides with top left longer to slick back" cut
Come on y'all. It feels a little weird at first, but bitches love it.
Apparently Stotts messed up the paperwork on who is active before games and CJ accidentally got put on the inactive roster and you can't play someone already registered as inactive.
It sounds fucking retarded and probably a stealth tank move because Portland has been winning too much lately.
Do you guys enjoy the schedule in the OP image? If there's interest, I'll do another one.
I doubt they would have beat the Clippers either way. Dame hasn't looked too good since returning from injury. It's funny though that Portland strings together a few wins when Dame was out and they come like a game out of the 8th seed and then an error like this happens out of no where.
I'm okay with losing though because fuck the 9th seed.
I'm sure its coach but I wonder if Doc calls him "son" in timeout situations.
>"DJ, I want you to set a high pick here"
>"Chris, they'll double up on you so you create the decoy and run this line"
