Hmmmm, even though Durant is the better player, I think they'd still be favs without him but not without Curry.

Re: Durant v Curry on 2013 Heat, I'll have a think a bit more about it. Maybe you're right and Durant would be better. My main point is that that sort of situation IS the kind of situation where it's important who would be better, because small differences can be worth big % in ring equity. I think we actually agree on this just spoke past each other a tad.

*I'm actually narrowly on the MJ side of MJ vs Lebron but I definitely think Lebron's more well rounded game makes him better suited to carrying a bunch of scrubs, so for this train of thought I'll call Lebron the best
As a side note to this conversation-that 09-10 playoffs was the worst playoff year I can remember. I'm a Laker hater I will add, but their team was good that year. However, with the Celtics not beating them, we missed out on Lebron ***** slapping Kobe in the finals which we never got to have with their "peaks" somewhat coinciding. And even worse of it all Nash and the Suns played some excellent ball and couldn't beat them in the WCF. Just an abysmal year for Lakerhater.

If Kyrie stays the Cavs have better equity than the Curryless Warriors, they're probably better head to head too (assuming Lebron is as physically capable as he was last year)

According to TMZ, Randolph was found with about 2 pounds of marijuana—obviously, a substantial amount. TMZ also reports that the marijuana was found in a large backpack on Randolph’s possession.
He could face between three and seven years in prison.

But since he's a millionaire and the govt wants his taxes he'll get community service and probation.

Did the drug classes help or were they just sick networking opportunities?

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

I assume Randolph will have his boy eat the charge if it wasn't already his boy's stuff in the first place. Assume cops just wanted to either nab the highest profile guy or it was in his car. Randolph straight OG hanging out in the projects. Glad the cops cars got vandalized. Can't wait until Zach walks.

Man, I'd really like to say the suns could surprise everyone and make the playoffs, but that Chriss/Chandler frontcourt is just so bad.
