>mfw I play Curry highlights to set the mood when i'm fucking my girl
>tfw deandre jordan is average over 4 blocks a game
if he finishes with over 4 a game and his usual 13-15 rpg and kawahi meme leonard or fatmon green wins dpoty again this year I will stop watching this game all together
in nba 2k13 I got around 4 blocks and 9 boards a game for the season and I easily won dpoty
Celtics to be honest
They have nachos with hot sauce and beef but ive never heard of chili at the bell. I doubt it'd be good anyway.
>DeAndre Jordan is a glorified Birdman
>signed to a max contract
>the city of cloppers
we're gonna get destroyed by the warriors
Nigga its easy to play defense when you dont do shit on offense. Meanwhile Kawhi & Green actually have an offensive game while still playing elite defense. Fuck Jordan. Kawhi is winning back2back DPOY
honestly its pretty fucking embarassing that a teenager like jahlil can come into the league with infinitely better skill and touch than "top tier" veteran centers like deandre and dwight. If they werent so fucking inept/lazy they could be so much better
2nd time Curry was in public near my house.
A zebra mask?
Where does one even get one of those?
So will the Celtics draft Ben Simmons next year? Or will it be the 76ers? I mean what if the Sixers get Ben Simmons, Jamal Murray, and Caris Levert in next years draft. Plus with the addition of Saric with all that money. I mean a team with Embiid, Okafor, Noel, Saric, Simmons, Covington, Thompson, Stauskas, Levert, Caanan, and Murray is one talented team.
where do you live I think I herd he lives somewhere out in orinda? i could've swore I saw him in sf last week by 7th and market talking to homeless people
JUST ONE FUCKING POST MOVE AND 65% FT SHOOTING AND IT'S OVER
316 STRAIGHT GAMES
At this point it's almost laughably boring. When your team is so dominant, and your team has a player that is significantly better than even the second best player in the world, you know it's time to revise some NBA history. Right now there is an anti-Curry narrative floating around basketball pundits and social media users because their "GOAT" Michael Jordan is being threatened by the dominance of Steph. Jordan needed Pippen in every sense of the word. No Scottie, no excellence. Jordan was a manufacturered super star (though to be fair, no where near the amount that LeShit is). Curry needs no help. The play he delivers every night is nothing short of magical. 5 on 1 and the guy can dribble out of trouble, fade away for a heavily contested 3, or dish it out in mesmerizing fashion. We already shut that unfunny fat ass Charles Barkley up when our "jump shooting" team became the most dominant team in NBA history and won it all in a fitting conclusion to the 2015 season. As well as this team treats myself and other fans, they did something I didn't think they could do. They got better. This year is undeniable proof that they are the best NBA franchise, and the best NBA dynasty (back to back titles), which by the way, is something the Spuredditors could never do. Unfortunately I'm becoming a bit desensitized to their dominance, but of course I love watching them play. Especially Steph. Now I know how Bulls fans felt in the 90's except 10 fold. Added bonus when Riley is part of the post game press conference, she's so funny. Anyways, I know you non-Warrior fans have high hopes for your teams, which is admirable, but c'mon. Be realistic here, no team can beat Curry and co.
I'll see you guys at Oracle!
>Who is the face of the Chicago Bulls
maybe you can fix the foot but you can't fix his attitude and mental issues
bruh I got something to tell you it's definitely not if
>Embiid was determined to go to Vegas to party for the balance of the 10 days of summer league
>He was mandated to wear the walking boot in advance of the second surgery, but Embiid not only refused to wear the boot, but he carried himself as if nothing was wrong with the foot, shooting jumpers and even occasionally dunking. These actions have given rise to the theory that Embiid actually re-broke his foot
>The Sixers’ training staff was so concerned about what he was eating, they stocked the refrigerator in his downtown hotel residence each week with healthy food. When a staffer went to restock the fridge each week, most everything was uneaten and unopened, and they were throwing out the fruits and vegetables every week. When the team subsequently asked to see Embiid’s room service bill, they found that most days he was ordering junk food along with his signature beverage, a pitcher of Shirley Temples. Embiid also was frequently seen feasting on chicken fingers and hot dogs at and after games.
I'd be surprised if he ever plays a game in the league
what the fuck is your problem? how the fuck are you posting this in every nba thread? are you okay? are you alright? do you need help? are you kidnapped and this is the only way you can communicate and want us to inform the authorities? please go fuck yourself.
>top 30, Jordan is "elite"
>Jordan in once
>Mutombo, Bol, The Admiral, thrice
>Hakeem 5 times
>Eaton six times, twice in top 4
Get there a couple more times or it's just a flash in the pan.
dj's 4.5 blocks are only from this season aka 4 games
but as I said earlier if he keeps this up and puts up over 4 a game he deserves dpoty
>spamming a 3 hour inactive thread
>the city of Curry spammer
fucking kek he comes here, opens up his word document with his comments all lined up, searches the first basketball related thread and spams it nonstop like an autist.
I have no idea why this guy has been doing this for an entire year.
Honestly I think /nba/ will never recover from bandwagoning Lebron up 2-1 and getting BTFO. It's eternal!
I can't say i feel sorry for you, you actually thought delly could shut down the best shooter to ever play the game. You gotta live with that the rest of your lives.
>iggy shutting down MJ
just admit it /nba/ you've been defeated and will never recover. You bandwagoned Lebron up 2-1 during the finals and proceeded to get B-T-F-O. You spammed lelbron this, Delly that and now look at you! Sad and pathetic beaten like a black step child. what was you thinkin? what was you trying to prove? You grew up in the worst era of basketball ever and think flopping is okay. Well it's not and you're a faggot. I don't blame you for being mad, i blame you for being pathetic! 2-4 is a testament to your stupidity and you can't come back from that.
What if we all reported the curryfag's shitposts? Surely the mods will ban him if they see more than 1 complaint

For the other few people unfortunate enough to be Hornets fans, what do you think of the NBAs first lady color commentator for a team's broadcast?
My opinion is she doesn't add anything special, but she doesn't take away anything either. She sort of makes the same points Dell Curry does so they just alternate plays mostly.
She fine tho
>not posting in the old thread to troll /nba/
So Lebron was in the East, but still he got the Cavs to the Finals in his 3rd season with fucking Larry Hughes as his sidekick.
Anthony Davis hasn't won a playoff game in his first 3 seasons.
>it took him 17 (seventeen) minutes to think of an excuse for getting exposed
I'm saying I don't care and my opinion doesn't matter much anyhow. I'm also saying just being able to dunk on an alley oop pass isn't special in the NBA, even if you're good at it. Keep up the blocks and defense and that's useful.
Anyone see Cody Zeller get his nose broken?
I've never seen someone so leaky
Thats not a thousand yard stare. Pic related is a thousand yard stare
I thought you were leaving faggot?
Every nba thread you leave your meaningless two cents. Just like your team's meaningless existence. 0 wcf appearances ever. Lol
Keep playing devils advocate for nothing kek.
>Jamal Crawford/Tony Parker
Can I lose a head to head league? Points per week FG, FT, 3PTM, Points, Rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, turnovers
Shaq said it was unnerving playing against Timmy because he'd look at you like that whether he just dunked on you or you just smashed him with an elbow in the ribs. And he taught it to Kawhi.
>DeAndre Jordan will never average 20/10/4blk
oh yeah, he was my last pick. My three last picks/bench are parker, crawford and I forgot A Johnson, they aren't really playing while everyone else is healthy though
I took vucevic over kanter, this was good right

>mfw been watching DeAndre highlights and he could literally bully anyone in the paint and use his baby hook or take 1 dribble and lay it in or dunk it but he acts like a faggot and only catches lobs
>His entire rookie year, he drove a Chevy Malibu. This year he finally bought a Porsche. But he still drives the Malibu more. "It gets good gas mileage," he tells incredulous friends.
How can you not like this guy?
take him away
>special kind of bad
Made it sound like they aren't a special kind of bad every game. It's not like Portland has defensive juggernauts to stop him and the Pelicans were still down like 30 at half time. They just suck complete dick right now.
Yeah, because that's totally the problem
I still remember watching him at Texas A&M, he was strong and athletic but unskilled as fuck and anybody that stood up to his bullying could neutralize him and send him into a tailspin. There was a game against Oklahoma and Taylor Griffin got in his head and Texas A&M went like 15 minutes without scoring a single point.
He has improved massively but he is still a fucking headcase and will probably never realize his potential.
I didn't watch the Portland game but today they were giving layup after layup. Davis' defensive awareness was non existent but desu no one on the team was concentrating and they're just full of bad defenders straight up
>mike dan tony
jimmy buss must have hated his dad, he's killing his team
Kobr is the only reason anyone shows up to the games. You think people would pay to see Russell?
It's facts you can't have 3 "superstars" on a team (DJ is like 2/3 of one) that will all put up crazy numbers 18ppg+
DJ would blossom with only CP3

>mfw there are people trying to compare 4 time dpoty and nba champion, big ben to deandre jordan
talk of firing him is starting. Who to replace him. Someone who is good with young players and developing talent would be best imo. Mark Jackson or Scott Brooks for 3 years then replace him with a nice young fresh coach. A Steve Nash or Luke Walton. Championship secured in 5 years.
Feels like a bag of sand
You do realise 80% of the time block goes out of bounds and the only effect you have is reduced shot clock? Then theres like 10% where it gets rebounded not by your team. BLOCKS ARE FUCKING OVERRATED. If you actually look into all the stats and do an analysis instead of memeing with muh blocks. You see that hes barely in the top 10 if that, absolutely not dpoy
And his fucking rebounds are overated too. If you look into who is best at rebounding there are MANY others, its not just the number. Uncontested rebounds are meaningless for example even chris paul could get like 10 a game if they really wanted to stat pad him.
You now remember that the Los Angeles Lakers selected D'Angelo Russell 2nd overall in the 2015 NBA draft ahead of the likes of Jahlil Okafor, Emmanuel Mudiay and Willie Cauley-Stein.
I guess I can understand Russell over Okafor. Okafor looks great as a rookie, but in 5 years he's still going to be Al Jefferson. And who the fuck wants Al Jefferson?
What the Lakers can't defend, is taking Russell over Mudiay. That's just straight up horrible drafting.
>Kawhi & Green actually have an offensive game
You're fucking retarded.
Danny Green is one the most 1 dimensional offensive players. He's purely catch and shoot.
Kawhi has a decent game, but it's nothing to write home about. He's not capable of being a 1st option, and he doesn't have any elite offensive skills. He's just pretty good at most things offensively.
Don't beat yourself up, the dumbass fairweather fans (90% of local Mavs fans) thought we had no shot even after the season started and it was apparent we had the best team in the league
Shame Caron got injured, might have swept the playoffs otherwise
milana vayntrub, found this one in the last thread
woke up, couldn't fall back asleep so I'm drinking coffee listening to shitty indie and playing 2k
was the last 30 rebound game the one bynum had against SA in 2013? I can't remember any other
>feeling kinda sad

Lol that sounds awful m8
You got some low hanging balls man...
>tfw being atheist on this website means you're a fedora tipper
I remember when it was generally accepted here desu. Altho I do like the fedora meme
I honestly had AD as the 1st in all my fantasy drafts. What the sam hell is going on in NO?
Wow the Lakers could have had Randle Clarkson and Okafor but they took a young guard when they had one
You think they're retarded? Clarkson has been fucking good this year. He might actually be legit
And even if Russell pans out, they could have had a young big 3. Now they'll have to flip one of those PGs at some point.
>Game of the year
>Album of the year
don't really have one
You always draft the best player available with a high pick, not the best fit. Two PG lineups are going to be the next big thing, so it isn't even a fit issue really.
This really isn't a conversation to have now though. Everyone knew that Okafor was going to look like the best player of the draft, or close to it, early on, and obviously that's going to make other players' growing pains look worse by comparison.
Clarkson's contract also expires after this season, he'll either walk or cost them a fortune to retain.
so what's the deal with tristan thompson? I don't watch cavs games that often, but in my fantasy games I like to play I've noticed he hasn't been doing much of anything.
but now he's so cheap that idk if he's worth taking a flyer on. is he hurt, just shit, or something else? didn't they just give him a gorillion dollars?
>tfw it's been months and you miss the idealized version of her and not the fussy cunt she was but no matter how much you remind yourself of her shortcomings the idealized version gnaws at me still
Do you guys think NBA will ever get flex scheduling? If they really cared about money and viewers they would put only the elite teams on national TV. Like tonight Clippers vs Warriors is good but before that it's Knicks vs Cavs. Like nigga come on, the Knicks?
27 years old
Not 24 years old
Then again, his size, training, and style should mean a prolonged career.
Hard to find anything really
>No Uncle Drew
>Busted back Lelbron
>Limited minutes PorzinGOD
>Calderon and Vujacic starting backcourt
This game will go into OT with Galloway hitting the game winner.
>someone out there actually thinks the Memeiors can beat the Clippers
His entire game is based around speed. He's a retarded release point on his shot and relies on speed to get seperation. He'll be gone in less than five years, hopefully without the title of "greatest shooter ever".

Fashionable attire: pretty dresses, suits, lingerie...
Thompson is shit for fantasy, his value is mostly just offensive rebounding (going into this season he was ranked 9th all-time in career ORB%) and being able to hold his own on a lot of defensive switches
Where my real niggas at? Who actually checks their fantasy roster and is willing to start another one. I feel like only me and some other dude actually make moves and do shit in ours. Fucking half you guys have no idea how to draft, drafting Kobe in the 2nd round and shit. cmon /sp/,I know you could better than that.
Brook was playing in San Antonio against Tim, and I was actually watching on TV. The game [which took place Jan. 10, 2010] was at the end of a roadtrip, so they were coming back home and I was going to be picking him up from the airport early that morning. During one of the timeouts, I think it was in the middle of the fourth quarter, Brook was having a good game. [He finished with 28 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks].
So the Nets are coming out of a timeout, and I see [Tim and Brook] kind of bent over, kind of at the elbow at the free-throw line, and they’re kind of next to each other, and I see Timmy kind of like mouthing something into Brook’s ear, and I was like, ‘What did he say to him?’
We’ve always respected Timmy’s game from afar so much that I was interested.
When Brook came back and I was picking him up from the plane, he got in the car and we were just talking about the game and I was like 'Hey, in the middle of that fourth quarter I saw Timmy lean over and say something to you, what did he say?' And Brook got this big smile on his face and he said the speakers in the arena were playing [Guns N' Roses'] "Welcome to the Jungle! We’ve got fun and games!" And he said Timmy was mouthing that in his ear.

You sicken me /nba/. You deserve this.
They are seeing how far they can break the NBA before the meme point shot is removed.
It just shows that anybody could coach an NBA team and win as long as the team chucks up meme point shots.

I did too many drugs when I was a teenager and it fucked up my sex drive so I'm sexually attracted to anything
meant to say I'm not sexually attracted to anything. No sex drive. Constant crippling depression because of it.
d'antoni was a decent coach handed a team that imploded early due to injuries and dwight being a fucknut. if nash was healthy and dwight played to the system, they could have done nice things. except nash's back disintegrated and dwight refused to PnR and got all bitch made about his touches and kobe decided to stop giving a fuck.
He could probably do some nice things with their current roster, aside from kobe, they seem like they'd be a great SSOL team with randle, dlo, and clarkson.
I do love him but idk if its that kinda love
Your idol is nothing more than a jumpshooter.
Maybe the best jumpshooter ever, but still a jumpshooter.
He isn't the most valuable player on the league. He isn't the best player in the league. He's nt even top 5. He might not even be top 10.
If he didn't have a team so specifically tailored to his playstyle, he would be just a good scorer.
I'm starting to think his curses aren't just memes anymore, he blessed the shitty ass Longhorns and they shomehow beat #10 Oklahoma and then blessed the blue jays and they came back from 1-2 series to win
i only play 2K & Endless Ocean (s-shut up)

Try dabbing after being off of weed for years. Nearly puked my guts out.
This desu senpai
I mean I've puked when I've smoked but nothing else
And none of my friends have freaked out on weed but I had a couple friends go crazy on 25i and lsd and dmt
The lsd one was weird. The dmt one was also weird
Raptors, Hawks, and Pacers are all maybes. Bucks and Knicks have just as high chances of getting in as them.
Spurs are top 4 seed, dallas won't get in, memphis will be around 6-7th seed, jazz and timberwolves have a chance.
Literally who would get in without them
Hawks have a great chance to be a top 3 seed. Raptors have a great chance to be a top 5 or 6 seed. I'm not convinced any other teams like the pistons, Celtics, Knicks or bucks will get in before them.
I'm convinced this is the best rookie class in years. There's a more than half-dozen players who already look like legit NBA players (Towns, Porzingis, Okafar, Hezonja, Winslow, Harrell, Mudiay), and that doesn't usually happen with a rookie class.
And there's always a few players that have rough starts but develop into decent players.
Warriors are great because of their starting lineup
They're the best team in the league because of their bench
Jazz don't have that
Also they play in a great system. Curry is great but the Warriors are so good because of Kerr's system
Yeah, looking at his stats, you're right. I heard more about Hezonja through reputation than seeing him play.
This class looks deeper than 2009 was, but we'll have to wait a few years to see if anyone ends up as good Blake/Harden/Curry.
Okay I mean they're great dude. I meant that, and they have the best starting lineup in the league. Still, the warriors won 67 games. Don't act like 5 players did that by themselves. You NEED a great bench to win championships and they have that. The warriors dominated their way to the finals last year and their bench was a big part of that
Would he? Curry is great, best offensive player in the league right now. How is the Jazz offense right now? I don't know if one player will make that team that much better, especially if he plays in a system that might not take advantage of who he is right now. I'm not saying they wouldn't be a great team, but I think it's easy to presume that they'll be title contenders based on "top 5 in defense and offense" but it usually isn't that simple.
Karl Towns could be better than all of them. Already he's shown he can shoot threes, protect the rim, rebound, score in the paint, pass and he's ridiculously fast for his size. Seriously we could be looking at Hakeem/Duncan 2.0 but with 3 point range.
Jazz are 13th in Off rtg now and their starting PG is Raul Neto. Imagine Curry in their. And yes, usually if you're a top 5 in defense and offense that would make you a title contender.
>usually if you're a top 5 in defense and offense that would make you a title contender
I didn't say that, I meant it's easy to say "steph + Jazz = top 5 offense" and that's not always true. add in the possibility that their defensive rating could DECREASE with Curry being there.
But you might be right, who knows, if only we had the ability to traverse into alternate universes.
>not a MEME
shut the fuck up old life support ass faggot don't talk shit about LeDaddy
he's my pimp
Russell Westbrook is the first NBA player in 43 years with at least 120 points and 35 assists through first four games of the season. Nate Archibald last did it in 1972.
>he unironically doesn't know about based 7kt
everyone is hating on rusell because he gets the fuck the hottest women on the planet it's not his fault he's the right age for her imo imagine kobe dating her he would look like a rapist.
