    This scares the hell out of me.
    Mthis is the reason im pissed about us not avoiding okc when we could have. I think?
    We didnt even try though.

    Does stotts not know where Kanter came from?
    Does stotts not k ow that okc has the play book on kanter????

    Does he not understand that quick foul trouble on Kanter and we are dead in the water????????

    Im not scared of okc.
    Im scared of what Kanter cant do and they know all of it.

    Thanks hail. renewed my frustrations.

    What? Are you drunk?

    Gobert is more of a threat than Adams...

    No. Well not much. Lol.
    but you must be for not understanding my post. Lol.

    Goberr isnt a threat to knowing Kanters game.

    Im commenting more on okc in general than just adams.

    My point was okc knows Kanters’ weaknesses like no other teams in the league.

    Did you hear about how Adams and Kanter are friends but when okc played ny. Adams had to tell the ny coach to get Kanter off the floor because he cant guard them?

    Okc is gonna pull Kanters shorts down to his ankles and leave him mid court sucking his thumb man.

    Not sure what you or anyone else wants Portland to do OB.
    Portland played 6 players. Four of which were end of the bench players.
    Kings pulled their starters and their bench which was fire in the first half, went ice cold and missed wide open shot, after wide open shot, after wide open shot.
    Portland even had Nards initiate the offense and dribble it up the court.

    Outside of telling players to throw the ball out of bounds as soon as they touch it. What else should've Portland done to lose that game?

    Well. When Simons proved he is a viable Cj replacement, he should have been benched too. :)

    Didnt hoosiers coach once play four guys???

    Lol. I dunno.

    Im just not a fan of this matchup T all because of Kanters history and okc knowing him inside and out. If we had Nurk, id love the matchup.

    I wish we had Nurk also.
    However I prefer OKC to Utah tbh.

    With Utah Gobert is pretty similar defensively to AD. Might not be exact but he doesn't need to be with players like Rubio/Mitchell/oneal.
    Lillard would at the very least have a real difficult time against Utah. Similar to how the Pelicans made his life hard.

    OKC is a trapping/gambling team, but Lillard has shown the ability recently to get off against them.
    I think that has to do with Adams not being as long as Gobert. That it's easier for Lillard to beat Adams to the rim than Gobert.
    Honestly I think Portland would've been swept by Utah.
    While I think Portland while not the favorites, has a punchers chance against OKC. Simply because Lillard is going to have an easier time against Westbrick & Adams, than he would against Utah's guards and Gobert.

    Invest in spellcheck. And grammarcheck.

    Everyone knows Kanters weaknesses.

    Weakness:
    Struggles in every aspect of defense, especially pick n roll.

    Dont need to be his ex-team to know that...

    So Kanter will know Adams weaknesses too. Literally not going to be a difference maker.

    And hell no to that analogy. I laughed, but I also cringed. Lmao.

    Come on bones. Serious?

    First im on my phone. Blah blah blah.

    Second, playing with a person on the same team for several years will vastly expand the scouting report compared to a few games a year.
    Yes everyone knows he is weak on defence. Go at him. Do they all know how and when exactly???

    Are you arguing to argue?

    What you are saying is my cousin i see a few times a year knows me as well as my ex wife.
    Simply not true.

    We will have to agree to disagree. I think okc knows him like the back of their hand. Other teams do not.

    You do know that Kanter played for Utah too, right? Actually he played there 3.5 years and only 2.5 years in OKC. So using your own logic Utah might know him better.

    Besides, Minnesota was up 11 on Denver with 3 minutes left. If they don't blow that lead we would have been the 4 seed anyway even though we won.

    But he is on our team now and were not playing UTAH.

    My point being is ADams himself went public with how they know him and destroy him.

    My point is im seriously concerned because i feel okc knows better than any other team how to attack him.

    And he was on utah before okc wasnt he?

    I don't get the defeatist attitude. Adams is clearly trying to rile up Kanter because they're buddies.

    OB relax bro. We are going to be fine. Kanter is going to have 20/10 + and out play Adams. Not worried about it. Kanter is feeling winning ways, he is intoxicated by all the winning, and there is no going back.

    maybe it's too simple, but I'm thinking that if Kanter can just about play to a draw with Adams, even if Adams has a little advantage, that will be a big factor in Portland's favor

    If not defeated you wouldn't want the Blazers to lose a game to get a lower seed and a tougher path to a title.
