    I have quite a few friends that are kings fans. Every win they post something about lighting the beam. Being hyped is a understatement for them hahah

    I'll be rooting for the kings in the playoffs no doubt.

    The Clippers v Warrior game is a great example of the fallacy of positionless basketball. Athletic size with skill will always dominate this game. Most of the Warriors titles had Bogut to make up in plays where size was imperative and KD to go with that.

    Paraphrasing, to use it for Blazers situation. Blazers are great example of the fallacy of cultural basketball. Bullies with balls will always dominate this game. Last Blazers team nobody wanted to play was with Sheed on the floor.

    Which is why I want to see Sharpe going to the hoop 45 times a game, off the dribble and cutting to the hoop. He'll lose the ball sometimes, miss shots badly sometimes, but he's already shown a graceful ability to glide to the hoop, take contact, and finish, with some of his finishes looking impossible.
    I have no idea what's going on in Billups's head, but he's missing the forest for the trees. How Sharpe plays defense right now as a 19-year-old rookie isn't important as long as he's learning. What is important is having Sharpe get as many opportunities as possible to attack defenses and figure out what works. Because for Sharpe, there's a lot that's going to work.

    First part of this video: "Sharpe, bullied right through Luka Garza." I can't understand how Chauncey can't see the Blazers desperately need Sharpe to be a bully for the Blazers to improve as a team. Yes, Sharpe will make mistakes. But like Obi Wan Kenobi, he's "our only hope" right now to be that bully. Screw everything else.

    Someday you'll make a post where you're right. This is just a bad take, par for the course.

    If the Nuggets keep losing like this, the Kings might have a chance at the #1 seed. Nuggets are on a 4 game losing streak and losing at half to the Pistons. And they’ve been fully healthy.

    MJ has to sell the Hornets so he and Phil can buy the blazers.

    "The man got hit in the snot box." Alvin Williams providing colour commentary for the Raptors game tonight.
    Describing Christian Koloko being elbowed in the face by Jalen William. Koloko left the game with a bloody nose.

    I think the Pacers are better when Nembhard starts as primary ball handler. And Nembhard sucks when he starts with Haliburton. And McConnell is the best back up in the league. So what do they do with their All Star?

    Meyers scored 10 points tonight. Former Blazers Pat C, Wes M, and Joe I all scored for the Bucks as well.
