    If only we could get those guys and the league to forget... That would be Olshey's best move yet.

    Fun fact: if Denver beats the Clips tonight, we've surged past the clump of 4 teams that were all tied yesterday, and have sole possession of 4th in the West.

    Note: Denver is up by 13 in the 2nd period right now.

    Seeing this and being reminded of this, I'm about to turn this Around the NBA thread into another Neil Olshey Hatred thread... Fuck that guy.

    OMG....The Celts have 1 less loss than us and they were the run away favorites the East, since James left.
    They've had so much more tom work with the last 5 years than any team in the assoc. maybe they should consider that Ainge & Stevens aren't all that great as compared to mediocre guys like Neil & Terry.

    I would trade Neil and Terry for Ainge and Stevens ten out of ten times. But I'd trade Dame for Kyrie zero out of ten times.

    It happened. We're alone in 4th place!

    If SA beats OKC (they're up by 9 in the 4th), then we'll only be 0.5 games back of 3rd. Not bad.

    That looked like an achilles for Adams just now, not an ankle. Aldridge is in MVP mode right now

    Kyrie is overrated. Good player but definitely overrated and it’s because of his popularity and being known for his handles.

    Wow... that was a crazy game between SA and OKC just looking at the box score:

    SA shot 16/19 on three pointers for an incredible 84%.

    LMA had 56 points making all 16 of his free throws and shooting no three pointers.

    Westbrook with 24 points, 24 assists and 13 rebounds for the insane triple double.
