Re: NBA Season Thread 2020-2021

NBA without super teams is so good

Re: NBA Season Thread 2020-2021

Trae is what 23 and has never been in the playoffs, neither has Booker who is 24. A lot of the guys who load manage also have been doing international ****.

correct. super teams are Aids, and the league has to shed the image that it is in anyway obsequious to certain markets.

I can't believe the Hawks have made it this far but I'm loving every minute of it. ICE TRAE. Going to a game if they make the finals!

Re: NBA Season Thread 2020-2021

lol Dean jeez, esp that last 1

Hawks aren't going anywhere now doesn't seem like...The Lopez/Portis issues won't go away, Bucks can go small but they don't really have the personnel to do so. Middleton will obviously play way better but this is probably gonna be a battle like the Philly series with the Bucks putting them away in the end.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2020-2021

HAWKS

This team is too young and dumb to be afraid of the moment

Win a Game 7 on the road, we will come into your building and shimmy our way to a DUB

Solo with some HUGE minutes (a couple mistakes but to be expected) and even though it didn't work out bc Giannis made both, a great VETERAN FOUL late. Nate needs to solve for Jrue/Giannis PnR.

I think they will only use Reddish for a non-end of 4Q defensive possession at some point. But good to have him. He can be handsy in a good way on D.

Imagine this is what we are with a compromised Bogi, no Hunter, no Reddish, rookie Okongwu. Wow future is BRIGHT in Atlanta.

Also, Huerter is gonna keep messing around in this playoffs and turn down an offseason extension because he is going to get a Bogi or better offer in RFA in 2022 offseason.

Gotta say, I find Trae Young deeply unlikeable, like a prime Stephen Curry but cockier. He's been incredible and yet I'm always rooting for someone to punch him in the face.

He's Reggie Miller. Since he's anti-super teaming I still find him likeable though

Except if, instead of Steph who was lauded for his scoring prowess in college, he had been completely and utterly unfairly had his ability diminished because his main teammates were DeAndre Bembry, Dewayne Dedmon, and 40 year old Vince Carter.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2020-2021

I wish Trae would cut out the antics, but I still love his game.

Like, he didn't need to get whiplash when Giannis barely grazed his face, but hey, it got him 3 free throws.
