    Wasn't Akeem The Dream also a practicing Muslim during his dominating days? Stop making excuses for Chief. Given his seniority, he should be doing much better. He is pushed around, can't shoot, play pathetic D#, ...etc.

    Hell KD might not be back if Golden State don't need him. Kerr will rest him as long as he can. Kerr idea if don't him he will rest for the finals.

    If GS makes it to the finals, he will need to deal with Giannis ...

    Did I say he'd stop KD with his lockdown defense?
    No.
    Thanks for putting words in my mouth.

    Your posts are getting really hostile recently. Time to put you back on ignore.

    Who was first to say this? I feel like it was me but am totally on board with understanding it may have come subconsciously from someone else.

    Well, not a great start for CHIEF in this series. Without KD I don’t think we really need him, I’d much rather have someone like Hood and Collins get more minutes. But if KD returns, we’ll still need Aminu. I don’t know what’s wrong with Aminu though. He looks so out of it. He was so good in the playoffs last year. We can bring up Ramadan but his shooting has been MIA since the playoffs started.

    ...so then, assuming the Blazers re-sign Aminu and Kanter somehow, every single deep playoff run will have 20% of the roster depleted on energy and not playing up to the fullest of championship levels :dunno:

    Those damn Muslims...

    No excuses. Hakeem Olajuwon did it. It can be done again.

    Not necessarily. Ramadan shifts about 10-11 earlier each year, because it's based on the lunar calendar. Next year it starts April 24. In 2021 it starts April 13; in 2022, April 3.

    ...Agreed -- and probably wasn't the only one to push thru to a 'ship!

    Has Turner been in a funk due to his reduced role since acquiring Hood?

    I say, give Turner more burn earlier in the game and more responsibility handling the ball and freeing up Dame to play off the ball. I think he'll respond. And if he doesn't, abort the experiment and try something else.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Turner has never been good, IMO. He was extremely overrated as a Celtic, which is why I really disliked the signing.

    After being optimistic about the acquisition, I soon became one of the original Turner hatres on this board. I used to dis him a lot. I think I may have been the first to start calling him Evan Turnover. (Mature AND Clever, right ;) )

    I agree he's not been good; but I don't think he's ever been this bad.
