Would Whiteside stick around as a backup at a discount? Or is that insane? Who will pay him?
IMO, the best lineup at the end of the game would be Dame/Gary/Ariza/Melo/Nurk. But that would never happen.
We need a backup pg. I miss shabazz
It could have.
Any chance ariza can join us for the playoffs
Yeah, I understand the format.
For something to be "regular season", it would be a game that was scheduled to begin with. How many teams have played a regular season game that was not on the schedule to start the season (or the bubble in this case).
That's just my opinion. If there is an official definition, I'll stand corrected. These are abnormal times!
From all I've heard, he think's he's a top 5-10 big guy in the league. If no team wants to give him a starting job, then maybe, but it would be a one year deal I'm guessing.
No, he's not allowed because he opted out.
Right. I hear you. It is a weird twighlight zone grey area I guess. Its not quite regular season and it's not postseason because we are playing for a chance at a postseason
but if he went to a strip club he could have joined!!!!!!!
what a joke, Adam Silver is more comedy than Adam Sandler
Props to the refs tonight, by the way. They swallowed their whistles and let the players decide the final outcome. No controversial calls in this game. Temple maybe should've been called for a flagrant for hitting Dame's face but that was it.
Love your opinion, very valid points for sure! I'm glad we have a reason to even talk about it!
Blazers were 4 games behind Memphis with 9 games to play. They ended the regular season 1/2 game ahead. Never quit.
Now lets beat Memphis one more time!
There were refs?
The suns now have a 10 year playoff drought. That's pretty amazing.
that may be.
The thing is, I'd wonder if the Lakers have the perimeter players to blanket Dame. Both Rondo and Bradley are out the last I heard, and Caldwell-Pope has a bum ankle, or at least he did. The do have Danny Green and he used to be a good defender with some length. And of course they could always hedge Lebron toward Dame and dare Melo to beat them. Maybe between KCP, Green, Caruso, and Waiters they can harass Dame enough to make it the same puzzle for the Blazers they've faced every year in the playoffs for the last 5 years
Appreciate it! Me too!
you're ignoring the 378 points various Nets score while being guarded by CJ
Absolutely not the same system and what you say is pure conjecture. I’ve watched many Kings telecasts and don’t see anywhere near the same type of offence being run. Walton does like pace, but he doesn’t run the Cyclone offence the Warriors ran.
I can't believe we keep rooting for them to win so we can watch more games like this. We are like a god damn cult.
