    I want Houston to win. Warriors and Rockets can kill each other in the 2nd round

    Seriously? You quote stats from one game all the time and ignore the bigger picture. How ironic....

    When someone takes it upon themselves to decide who does or does not have access or rights to a community or identity.

    You love to define who is and who is not a real Blazers fan.

    Also it is so bad even Harden can defend it.

    ....... no....... you don’t.

    Nobody gets to decide who is and who is not a real fan. And if you have that opinion then you can keep it to yourself.

    It will come down to how healthy George is. IMO the Jazz were easier, but not if PG struggles the whole series with a shoulder inury.
    We will know soon

    Did I challenge that you were a fan? Just saying that your posts are those that reflect someone who doesn’t watch all the games. Be a fan. Just don’t act like you know what you’re talking about when criticizing the team.

    And your posts reflect someone who is not, nor have you ever been, subjective about the team.

    Utah with a weird defensive scheme to contain Har_en.
    Giving him straight line drives because the guy checking Har_en decides to play behind or his left hand.
    Seems like a recipe for losing to me.

    I didn't see him say Kingspeed wasn't entitled to his opinion(s)

    all he did was label a specific type of posting style

    nope....you're dammed if you do when you damn people for doing the same damn thing you often do

    it's the damn do do rule

    He'd be fine in this locker room. Hes a PF that gets 25/8/5 work solid 3pt shooting, ball handling, and defense. Hes a legitimate all-star and all his red flags do is make him cheaper and create more upside for the gamble.

    No, his game doesnt depend on being the primary ball handler... hes not a primary ball handler. Reggie Jackson is insanely ball dominant as a PG. AMD you have questions whether a good 3pt shooter, who's a good rolling big, would have issues playing with a PG who excels and driving and kicking as well as running pick n roll?

    Hed be an amazing fit.
