Portland is the best rebounding team in the NBA, good thing they bought Kanter off the waiver wire

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 22:48:11
Do you guys think Portland could have beaten Goldenstate if they could have kept LM Aldridge?

Agree0 Disagree2

15 Feb 2019 18:21:31
I think they would have made the conference finals had Matthews never torn his Achilles. But I think they would have lost to GS that year. It would have been a good matchup of two fairly inexperienced teams though.

If they had resigned Aldridge and eliminated Turner and Leonard's deals, I think they're in the pack with Houston and GS last year, but again, I think it's a 7 game series again Houston to move on to lose to GS in the WCF.

And this year, with Lillard, McCollum, Layman/ Hood, Aldridge, and Nurkic starting, that's a really good team. Is it better than GS? No. Is it equal to the other elites of the NBA? Yeah, probably.

15 Feb 2019 22:54:29
Bmiller weren't they the 3 seed last year and got swept?

16 Feb 2019 20:42:01
Sure, they were in the second tier of west teams. Add an all NBA player to that team, and you don’t think they’re at least in the second round?

14 Feb 2019 18:32:42
When will knicks and daily news fire stephanie bondy. Wake up Dolan, get this guy fired already. Never have I seen a news reporter troll NY newspaper about a team. Why is ultimateknicks.com linking his articles to their page. Bondy needs to banned from ny sports team especially any team in msg. don't banned Charles Oakley who is MSG legend for his hard play.

Agree2 Disagree2

14 Feb 2019 19:16:33
Isnt it sad that you have to wake up a teams owner in order to fire anyone.

15 Feb 2019 00:39:25
Fredman yeah man smh.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 19:18:23
A lot depends on whom they are able to draft in the 1st round.

14 Feb 2019 09:35:51
Should LA be fined for tampering Ben Simmons? It's not the first time Magic did this.

Or should big market teams be allowed to do this?

Agree3 Disagree2

14 Feb 2019 21:06:36
I’m no fan of big market teams, but who cares? It happens all the time and it’s almost impossible to police. Instead of making a show out of fining teams and gms for stupid stuff just drop the rules. You don’t think agents with star clients aren’t constantly in contact with gms? Or that players don’t talk to each other about teaming up?

14 Feb 2019 22:27:36
Players are allowed to talk. Gms can discuss with gms. The rules keep blatant tampering like magic n lebron have tried.

15 Feb 2019 01:56:30
Do you quit your job then go look for a job, or do you find a job then quit the existing one?

15 Feb 2019 18:23:24
From everything I've seen, the Simmons and Magic stuff was about a young guy talking to a Hall of Famer. It didn't have anything to do with recruiting him. Obviously that could all be lies, but from the reports, it sounded innocent enough.

15 Feb 2019 21:01:37
I think the real issue lies with the agent. Simmons has the same agent as Lebron and Anthony Davis. GMs should be concerned that the agent is manipulating things for his "main" client Lebron James.

15 Feb 2019 23:52:10
You mean cops would lie to you, break the law, violating your constitutionally protected human rights? I don't believe it! The sun rises and sets in Lebron James living room I thought?

14 Feb 2019 01:57:53
I'm a big Lebron fan but there's no way he's a top 5 player this season. I hear people on sportscenter and all these shows saying how he's the best in the world when I no longer think he is. It could be the groin injury but atm Giannis KD Harden Curry is better

Agree6 Disagree4

14 Feb 2019 05:59:50
Partially agree. However, when April comes around, I think you might change your mind about this statement.

14 Feb 2019 08:01:03
Durant
Giannis
Embid
Jokic.

14 Feb 2019 09:52:18
I hate LBJ, but stats are nothing, it's prices that matters.

This year isn't important for LBJ, the team isn't ready to compete, so why should he overload his body. He isn't the best if he's regressing next year too.

KD will never be the best player unless he wins a title with another team. And Curry is propably the best player in the NBA, but he can't be the best player in his team when KD is there.

Giannis, Embiid, Harden, Jokic are playing great baketball, but they can't be considered the best untill they bring their team to the finals.

So I consider LBJ still as the best player, unless another team beats golden state this year.

14 Feb 2019 13:32:46
Nba- stats are great but lebron might miss playoffs and his defense making harden look like dpoy.

Indiana Pacers Buyouts Market

Sign Carmelo Anthony for rest of season

In Free Agency

ReSign Carmelo Anthony 3 yrs 15 millions

Agree1 Disagree4

14 Feb 2019 01:59:29
Pacers are winning. don't sign him. He has not played in months or played defense in years.

13 Feb 2019 22:12:32
Blazers are terrible rebounders, Kanter was a good waiver addition for them.

If Luke Walton gets fired now, or in the off season, James will never shake his Coachkilla surname. He will have earned it.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2019 23:30:16
Portland is #3 in the NBA in rebounding, #7 in offensive rebounding. It's a good addition, but how are they terrible rebounders?

14 Feb 2019 01:01:13
Damn, BMiller, did you have to do him like that?

14 Feb 2019 08:03:09
How did I get did? They lost to OKC because they didn't rebound. Bmiller66 is talking about something I wasn't referencing in anyway. Sorry for the confusion.

14 Feb 2019 17:54:47
I'm confused. You said "they're a terrible rebounding team" which is objectively wrong. One game doesn't change a season. Also, Portland outrebounded OKC in that game, and got more offensive rebounds. Clutch time rebounds weren't good, but Nurkic was on the bench, so it's not about team rebounding, it was about foul trouble.

14 Feb 2019 21:40:13
Anyone for a stsnding 8 count?

15 Feb 2019 02:03:15
They picked up enes Kanter for what purpose? 3-point shooting, and perimeter defense?

15 Feb 2019 03:50:24
An interior big to backup Nurkic which they did not have previously.

15 Feb 2019 05:41:06
I wasn't talking analytics, Bmiller69 is right about what he is talking about. The blazers got kanter for rebounding. M. Leonard does everything else better than kanter except 2ft scoring and Rebounding. Blazers were demoralized on the offensive glass before the 20 point blowout, when OKC emptied the benches with more than 4 minutes remaining. Take exception with terrible rebounders but against OKC it mattered and I thought kanter made sense. I guess that's a reason to try to make fun of somebody?

13 Feb 2019 21:45:08
I think Utah need to use gobert more in offense. He leads league in fg percentage. They need more plays for him. It could work or not but worth a try since they paying him

Agree0 Disagree1

13 Feb 2019 22:02:19
Rubio can't shoot, Gobert isn't as quick and athletic as Capella, Mitchell is undersized, and isn't very good at setting up the offense, Korver is 38. That's a lot to overcome.

13 Feb 2019 22:22:02
They pay him for his defense. He has limited opportunities because he has almost no offensive game. There aren't plays for him. Its rebounds which turn into dunks. Out of 500 shots, 7 have been 10 feet or farther. I don't expect much from ya, seeing as you legit though Josh Hart was Kobe Bryant potential. but perhaps you could look past a single stat or two to understand a bit better how basketball works. Otherwise, DeAndre Jordan would be averaging 120 points a game, because hey, he shoots at a high percentage, so just give him the ball.

14 Feb 2019 02:00:50
Jorga? Mitchell ran point most of Jan. Their record and scoring was fine and Mitchell thrived.

14 Feb 2019 04:48:14
I'm sure they can run a few extra plays for him at the rim to help offense. Not saying run offense through him just put him involved more.

15 Feb 2019 01:35:12
What are you talking about? What plays can they run which result in him being 3 feet from the rim? Defenders would just stand by the rim. Learn basketball.

12 Feb 2019 23:07:53
K love good game back

Agree3 Disagree0

13 Feb 2019 10:47:51
So did Hayward.

13 Feb 2019 17:24:18
Marc Gasol good 1st home game w/ raps.

13 Feb 2019 21:32:56
Yah heyward game was unbelievable. Hope he keep it up.
