nah, he's a piece of shit. I started genuinely hating lebron after the Hong Kong crap, walking around with a Malcolm X book he never read, and attempting to copyright/trademark "Taco Tuesday". on top of all this, he ruins the sport with his sloppy, clumsy play getting bailed out by foul calls and crying. oh and his constant yelling and complaining about his teammates when he fucks up. like when he turns over the ball and he starts yelling at his teammates lol.

I can't really 'hate' anyone anymore. Especially someone I don't know.

Lebron is a big fucking doofus for sure. And he says and does a lot of dumb shit.

The Malcolm X book incident and the China things used to infuriate me. But he ended up showing everyone his whole ass so I feel like the Universe course corrected with him and now no real human beings respect him whatsoever. Well, maybe Nick Wright but it's amazing how much that guy can talk with James' dick in his mouth.

EDIT: And yes, he's not a very good basketball player. Never has been. Padded stats in the Leastern Conference. Wouldn't even start on any team in the 90s. Not even a sixth man. He'd be Greg Odom all over again. Incapable of playing in a hard nosed era, constantly injured and ultimately not worth the bother. If he'd have played against the Bad Boys in their prime, they'd have to call a hearse to escort his remains from the arena.

Not even top thirty all time. I'll stand by that. I don't care about his stats or his longevity. The guy is a joke as an athlete.

Nugs choked. Trade MPJ, Zeke Nnaji, Reggie Jackson, Hunter Tyson, and Jalen Pickett. Let DeAndre Jordan and Justin Holiday walk in free agency. Re-sign KCP, Collin Gillespie, Jay Huff, and Braxton Key. Find a new starting small forward, a new backup point guard, and for the first time in history a competent backup center.

PG: Jamal Murray, (new player), Collin Gillespie, (new two-way player)
SG: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Christian Braun, Julian Strawther
SF: (new player), Peyton Watson, (new player)
PF: Aaron Gordon, Vlatko Cancar, (new player), Braxton Key (two-way)
C: Nikola Jokic, (new player), (new player), Jay Huff (two-way)

Yeah, and were outplayed by the better team. Why not give credit to the first team in NBA playoff history to come back from a 20 point deficit in a game 7 to come back and win it? Sure, you can complain all day about you're team choking, but respect the team that pulled off a win like that.

Two things can be true. Wolves gritted that out even with Ant putting up a Kobe-level Game 7 and playing stout 2nd half D. But yeah, the Nugs absolutely choked.

Blowing up the Nuggets isn't the answer. Taking a team that's won a title (or with my Suns, got real close once and then had a record breaking season before they hardcore choked), and destroying it isn't the answer.

That's not blowing them up. That's getting rid of 1 starter and 1 bench rotation guy.

MPJ shot 35% while completely unguarded (no defender within 6 feet of him) against the Timberwolves. The guy's primary role is a shooter and the Wolves were doubling Jokic off him, daring him to shoot, and he ended up knocking down fewer jumpers than Aaron fucking Gordon. You gotta shoot better than 35% on wide open shots.

The main rotation was Jokic, Gordon, Murray, Porter, KCP, Braun, Jackson, and Watson. The rest of those guys were deep bench and didn't play. The only rotation guys I want gone are Porter and the 34 year old Jackson.

The year they won the championship they brought in a bunch of new guys too (Bruce Brown, KCP, Reggie Jackson, Collin Gillespie, Jack White, Ish Smith, Thomas Bryant, Christian Braun, Peyton Watson, DeAndre Jordan) but only KCP, Brown, and Braun were actually in the rotation.

Mavs steal two in Minnesota. Won the first one 108-105 and win again tonight 109-108. The T-wolves have been an impressive road team during the playoffs so we'll see if they can pull it off in Dallas. Boston, after an OT scare in the first game, blew out Indiana to take a 2-0 lead in that series heading back to Indy tomorrow night.

Would not say they stole it but rather Dallas was more clutch and experienced down the stretch, when it come to closed games wolves are making mistakes and error while mavs just executed, having Doncic and kyrie are 2 of best closer in the league.
