    You mean like #FireStotts that we had to read every other post in here for two years?

    Except #FireStotts was based off things that happened in the game (its a game thread), while you just repeat the same preseason prediction. See the difference? No...?

    At least Glass will bend a little bit. Even more so when you heat it up a bit.

    Here is a fun fact.
    Both the Suns and Warriors have played 17 games.
    The Suns are currently riding a 13 game win streak.
    The Warriors are still one full game ahead of them in the standings.

    You also predicted that the Westbrick trade was a great one - wrong so far.
    You also said we'd finish .500 - wrong so far.
    You also said to wait 30 games - this is correct, but now you're not waiting?



    Here's MY prediction: Lakers will have to play in the play-in. Blazer's won't have to because they'll be in the top 6.

    Fair enough. But they can finish ahead of us and suck more than us relative to their expectations.

    Personally when I say the Lakers suck, it’s relative to their expectations. For a team that is supposedly supposed to win the championship, they suck.

    As opposed to say, the Cleveland Cavaliers who are currently .500 but people say they’re doing really well.

    Expectations matter.

    What has been up with Peyton Pritchard this year? His stats are way down. I wonder if he needs a change of scenery.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Will the Lakers finish ahead of the Warriors and Suns?

    Related question: Will the Lakers be in this season's NBA Finals?

    when I say "the Lakers suck" I'm always thinking of their fans as much as the team

    Dyan Cannon did look pretty good in the 70's though

    No sir, I’m waiting 30 games for sure. This team really took care of business on this homestand. Looked good in some stretches. I still do believe with this roster, we are a .500 team. And as far as the Lake Show… they have looked bad. They have taken longer than I thought to gel. Still believe they will finish ahead of us in the standings in spite of the hate on here.

    I’ll bet you something that we finish with a better record than the Lakers. That team is extremely flawed and Anthony Davis hasn’t had his season ending made of glass injury yet.

    They gave up all their glue guys for a weak ass Westbrook.

    They done. Book it, Danno

    Lebron James, Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony playing a game against the Pacers and Vegas has them as 6.5 point underdog

    Don’t know why but I smirk every time I watch the Nets and Harden flails around and doesn’t get the call anymore

    They have an actual date yet?

    He will, UNFORTUNATELY, probably get injured shortly after he returns. Dude is made of wet paper.

    A team that’s young and plays hard no matter who the opponent is the Thunder. Beat the Lakers twice already and besting the Jazz right now despite no SGA

    I’m sure people will keep close tabs on him. Eventually Wanting him back because he’s an ex Blazer.
