    I know it's not true because Melo's text were so clear.

    So Kerr got ejected, KD got a tech and steph got a tech in a preseason game. Has there ever been a group of champions so hard to even respect then the GS Warriors. They are doing everything in their power to make me dislike them more than the Lakers, I dont think its possible, but they’re testing the limits...

    Bucks v Thunder is on NBA TV right now. Breaking news: Pat Connaughton is pure garbage.

    I liked them a few years ago... but they went from "Hey, you did it the right way" to "The hell happened to you guys?" So quickly.

    This is a travel. The NBA needs to get its eyes checked

    Dear NBA, you are not allowed to take 2 steps. You lift your pivot foot, and then put it down again, it is a travel - if you held the ball the whole time.

    Doesnt he pick up the ball then his left foot goes down, then he hops to the right then both feet touch, so isnt that 3 steps?

    It's not traveling. He does not have an established pivot foot when his dribble is terminated. I know it looks fishy, but that's not something I'd put a whistle on.

    LeBron in a Lakers jersey is sooooo scary.
