    Delusions of grandeur.
    I just want us out of the first round.

    I think two ways. One with my brain and one with my heart.
    Sometimes they align, but more often there is a conflict.

    Every team knows the book on pretty much any player in the league. Your take is being foolish.

    Okay. Lol.

    Again someone who lives with someone is going to know them better than those who do not.

    Foolish as it may sound, its valid.

    And books vary from author to author. Im saying i think okc has the most accurate and in depth book.

    based on what? You have no clue what info any team has on any player in the NBA. He played more years at Utah than OKC so why don't they have the most accurate and in depth book on Kanter? Like I said, your take was based on foolishness.

    And your is based on lack of reasoning. Because he was last at okc. So more recent game play is known.

    Utah doesnt also have two allstars that can take advantage of the playbook. Gobert isnt an offensive threat to be a concern for Kanter.

    If you dont think okc knows how to drive to the paint and put pressure on him more than other teams then its your take that seems foolish.

    Even with a playbook you have to have the tools to put it into play. Okc has them. Utah does not.

    He was last at Knicks, not OKC. If you think we’re winning in 6, what are you worrying about?

    I never said he was last at okc.

    I mentioned that when he was with the knocks. Okc actually had to tell their coach to bench him before they get totally trashed. This was just last year.


    Worry and concerns have different meanings king. :)

    Im trying to be realistic is all

    If Kanter can even play Adams to a draw, it will be a pleasant surprise.

    Adams blatantly travels.... not called
    Kanter does not travel (By NBA standards) and it wipes away a basket

    OKC must have forgot to bring that book they have on Kanter.

    Damn @Orion Bailey, OKC sure gameplanned Kanter well! Imagine if they didn't know everything about him?

    This is why you never play the karma game and try to match up with certain teams instead of just getting the best possible seed. Only scared sissies do that shit.

    They worked him in the pnr several times though. Enes' offensive rebounding was phenomenal, no doubt, but okc validated OB's concerns about knowing how to attack Kanter.

    Couldn't disagree more. Every team uses PnR to attack Kanter. That has nothing to do with OKC knowing him.

    In fact I thought OKC let us off the hook by not really attacking Kanter much. Granted the times they did were effective but the fact they used it so infrequently is actually the opposite of proving OB's concerns.

    Not fully serious, just giving you shit for your spelling/grammar. Not a big deal.

    Do you still stand on this stance after game 1...?

    As a defender in PnR, Kanter gave up .81PPP. OKC averages .91PPP.
