Sheed was awesome. Also, Durant didn't seem very cupcake-ish when he hit that ice cold 3 over Lebron to win game 3 of the finals last year. COME AT ME BROS.

Imagine if Jordan lost to the Monstars after being up 3-1 AND THEN HE JOINED THEM NEXT SEASON.

Durant is a ****ing cupcake with 100 twitter/instagram accounts.

Woah man, that's a lot of hot fire coming from you. I mean I don't blame you for being salty over how absurdly clutch and dominant KD (or as he is affectionately referred to around here, Katie) was in the finals last year, but damn.

Like you, I wish Lebron had never left Cleveland to form a Monstars squad in Miami, since KD would probably still be with OKC then. But that didn't happen, so now we just have to hope Lebron goes to the Lakers and they can dethrone those pesky Warriors.

NBA Season Thread 2017-18

Durant's cupcake ***** self likely still jumps to GSW.

You can't automatically hand wave and dismiss this.

"You want it to be one way.."

And LeBron is going to sign with Houston.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2017-18

I don't see why Lebron would sign with Houston to be with Harden and CP3 when he can join the Lakers and play alongside Lonzo and his .436 TS%.

Lonzo has shot .500 or better in just 6 of 35 games this year. That's amazing.

I have a better stat for his free throws. In 24 of 35 games, Lonzo has not made a single free throw. In his last six games, Lonzo has not attempted a single free throw.

So you're saying its okay for a superstar to ringchase and join a team thats already championship level and has two hall of fame locks on it - as long as he didn't just lose to that team the year before.

Better hope Lebron doesn't lose to Houston in the finals this year - otherwise you'll have to make up a new set of arbitrary rules to excuse Lebron - already the most excused athlete in the history of sports.

Yup.

On a somewhat related note, after the Warriors ship again this year I think the hate for them (mostly Durant) is going to ratchet up considerably, and we all know how much Katie cares about what others think of him. I hope it's enough to get him to go somewhere else in an attempt to win a ring without a 73 win supporting cast but I fear the worst. Basketball could be truly ****ed for the next 5-8 years if Curry and the gang decide to take less to keep the core together.

If Laborn goes to LA then the world probably explodes.

Nah, Bulls will sweep these chumps next year.

Lavine with 14 in 19 minutes. Lauri 19 in 27 minutes. And Dunn with 18-8-8-3-3-2 TO's line. Tank is over for us but that's cool since our young talent is so good.

Imagine if LeBron joins the Lakers and Lonzo's shot gets #unbroken at the same time.

Then the world def. explodes.

Nah, would be too unfair then. More interesting seeing Lonzo need to rely on dat historically elite BBIQ.

Does the same argument apply to LopezGOAT? He missed almost the exact same stretch of games as Lonzo.

well let's get serious for a second.

if Larbon was a free agent the year before Durant and GS had space for him and decided to recruit him, over/under how long it would take him to say yes?

30 seconds imo

he'll join the very best team available for him same as Durant
