    November is definitely for the dogs. They love to play in the leaves that are all over the place. And then drag that shit into your house.

    Sly is a fraud. I'm actually writing from the future. It’s already the 29th where I am right now.

    In my opinion no, contender status belongs to GS and thats about it this year.
    They may come out of the east though. I wouldnt give them or anyone else over there a realistic shot to beat the warriors though.

    Don't sell them short. Over the past few years, they've given the Warriors as much problem as anyone. Their overall team length is precisely the counter necessary for the W's ball movement. Now with a decent coach and scheme, they can definitely be a problem for Golden State.

    Heres the deal though a lot of teams have given GS problems and then got swept by them in the playoffs. Houston is the only team who has come close to beating them in the playoffs in a couple years.
    If Cousins comes back at say 80-90% of the player he was, how do you legitimately beat that team? Giannis is far and away The Bucks best player but do they even have the advantage there considering he basically plays the same position as KD.
    I mean is GS guaranteed anything? no, they have to play the games but Id pick the warriors in 4 or 5. Also Budhenholzer has done this before, he’s been a good regular season coach, the year in Atlanta they set all those records they werent even close to a challenge for Lebron.

    Yeah, that ATL team was all predicated on team ball though; they had no superstar. The Bucks are actually constructed in a manner fitting with the current NBA. And yes, I would give Giannis an advantage over KD.

    Sure, if Cousins is added to the current Warrior core, then it could take them to another level, but I'm not looking at what they might be; I'm only looking at who they are now. And with Middleton playing at a Klay-like level, Bledsoe and Brogdon meshing well in their backcourt, and Lopez providing a legit scoring threat at center, their starting 5 is legit. If they can use their length to defend like I think they can, this is a completely different situation from that 60-win ATL team, or just about any team the West has offered up recently. Specifically because Giannis is such a beast.

    I would be very happy if the Bucks won it all this year
