Re: NBA Season Thread 2020-2021

I think the Warriors are in serious trouble. They exploited so much off action to setup wide open 3's and then had great counters to balance them out. They were so perfectly in sync, but at the end of the day they were entirely exploitative. The league has evolved quick, and defending all the Warriors action much much better than they were 4 years ago. That's what made KD so valuable. When defenses were hanging with all the Warriors action, they had one of the best isolation scorers ever.

I've seen people say they think the Warriors with Klay could be a finals team, I just do not see it. I think this team+Dray is much closer to a lotto team than a contender, so I don't know how Klay coming off an ACL injury could move the needle that much.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2020-2021

Kerr might have to concede defeat and let Steph run p&r more. Teams aren't going to let him feast off-ball like they used to.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2020-2021

Hey Steph controls the ball last two possessions of the quarter and the result is an open 3 for a teammate and a step back 3 for him.

Let me coach

Re: NBA Season Thread 2020-2021

It's weird, he's obviously bad, but he's good at looking good until the ball doesn't go in. If that makes sense. He just has zero feel for the game.

I literally came back to post that Wiggins looks the worst I've seen him. Weird.

Voted Bucks but really high on Philly and Dallas too.

Bearish on Lakers, Celtics and (gulp, nice start me :P) Nets.

Can't believe we're already NBAing this is so great

Re: NBA Season Thread 2020-2021

The fan noise being piped in is so annoying. There's zero rhyme or reason to any of it. It's just random noises.
