    Jokic may be better than Pau Gasol at his age. He's already better than Porzingis. Hell, he may be better than KAT.

    He is not better then KAT but he is the second best player from that draft class.

    I read a nice story about Jokic recently, how his brother Nemanja came back from unsuccessful spell in the US (he's Darko Milicic's friend) and saw his brothers back in Serbia. Jokic was fat and could not jump and when he was 17 Barcelona scouts came to watch him but were so unimpressed they decided to not see him again.

    He did take 3 steps, but he wasn't "dribbling" - he threw the ball ahead to himself.

    It's just you. Traveling did not occur on that play. Witness the amazing ability of humans over and over.

    Green font? As a ref, I value your opinion on it. Was it really not a travel?

    Nuggets fan to KD after beating warriors.



    I've never cared about durant either way. Always known he's good, known he's always going to be in Brons shadow, Bron is the better player no doubt. But after last summer and learning more about KD and his attitude, I've gone from not caring to disliking. I sincerely hope Durant does not win a ring.

    Probably the most embarrassing play Wiggins well ever be part of. Amazing pass. Lucky Wiggins was not watching though.

    I want GS to lose in first round. I kind of admit that if Denver has a better chance that I want them to get 8 seed. See? I can be negative about our team!

    Kevin "Tough Shit" Durant can eat feces. Never understood why he had the reputation as some kind of good guy. Where's that 'undeserved reputations' thread?

    It seems like a year ago when posters were talking about getting one of these guys, Jokic was coming off the bench and they were talking about getting him. What a difference a year makes.

    Sounds a lot like Marc Gasol. Duckworth really was a trail blazer, showing the way for 7'ers with weight issues.

    Let's draw a veil over how that story ends.
