  1. NBA 2017: The Kings of Comedy

    That's a bold take Aeu. I mean just from a PER standpoint Wiggins has been better every year so far (and it's an easy measurement because they joined the league at the same time). And that's just PER; certainly the argument for LaVine isn't defense. But yes, Wiggins' apathy is frustrating and will likely keep him from reaching the superstar level he at least has the talent to become. The East is pretty interesting right now. Really hope we get Celtics, Cavs, Wizards, Raptors in the second round in some configuration. Any of the other barely .500 teams crashing the party would feel wrong. The Wizards sleepwalk against bad teams. Like last night where they were down 16 against the Lakers in the 3rd quarter before both team realized neither wanted the Lakers to win. But they love playing the best in the East. The Celtics because they loathe them, the Cavs because they're the champs (and because John Wall gets to attack all night) and the Raptors because the whole backcourt rivalry. Obviously playoff Lebron makes the Cavs the overwhelming favorite in spite of the tight records but like Maith said still should be more fun than recent years in the East. ETA: Oh and Westbrook went for 57 points and a triple double tonight. NBD.

    Yeah, I remain intrigued by the Bucks experiment of starting an entire lineup of guys between 6'8"-6'11", with Giannis functioning anywhere between the 1 and the 5. Love the idea of a defense that can perfectly switch on all pick and rolls. But, yes, no Jabari kills a lot of their upside. Still hope they get in the playoffs. Could always use more Greek Freak in my life.

    He's a better shooter than I thought but I still don't think he's the kind of player you want playing alongside Kat and Wiggins. OKC brought Harden off the bench and I think it's clear Minnesota should do the same with LaVine. Also is Kris Dunn still alive, WTF?
  4. NBA 2017: The Kings of Comedy

    Well that went like I expected. Wizards had nothing left in the tank against a team of freakish 22 year olds. Looks like Rubio especially killed it. Still think you're probably kicking yourself @Tywin et al. for not making that move for D. Rose. Instead of 19 assists could've had 19 attempts at heroball as KAT glares daggers at him. ETA: I do think it's telling how much better the T'Wolves are without Zach LaVine in the lineup. Brandon Rush is a way better fit as someone who both plays defense and GTFO of the way when KAT and Wiggins do work.

    That makes sense, but man Raptors are a fun team now! Masai's clearly smarter than most GMs and managed to rebuild on the fly and now they have a lot of nice pieces. I don't think they're winning a title with the current core but that's 90% of the NBA. There are times where a sincere rebuild are necessary but they're usually grueling and miserable. Some like Orlando get stuck in a perpetual rebuild. Or like Philly has undertaken the most sincere rebuild ever and there's still no guarantee they'll ever be good. These days, I'm of the opinion being upper middle class in the NBA ain't so bad.

    ? Remind me JA, you're a Raptors fan right?
  7. NBA 2017: The Kings of Comedy

    This is all well and good but now you face the mighty Wizards who have won 5 in a row. Who cares if they've also been behind by 10-20 points in each of those 5 games, and only won the Portland game due to a blown call by the refs, all that matters is the Wizards are on a West Coast road swing to rip the hearts out of all the bad to mediocre Western Conference teams and the T'Wolves are next. ETA: TBH, I'd be surprised if the Wizards win tonight. It's the end of a long road trip and they've just played back to back OT games on Friday/Saturday. With the way the T'Wolves are playing, imagine it'll be tough to match that energy.
  8. Agreed. This is Trump administration level loathsome. This is the culture Dan Snyder fosters. And this is why competence never lasts long in DC. It's always driven out by the poisonous elements in the organization. So many brilliant minds have tried to fix this thing and they all fail because it's irrevocably broken at the top. Was the biggest diehard of this team for the longest time...but I might be done. We'll see. Sick of rooting for a team run by people I actively loathe. ETA: At least I'm not alone
  9. This. It was totally an NBA trade - Browns as a rebuilding team used their excess cap space to take on a player a playoff team was desperate to get rid of and pried a valuable draft pick out of it. Never recall seeing this in the NFL before, but we've never had a situation as dire as Brock Osweiler before either.

    Boban Marjanovic!

    Hey as long as they're not saying Bogdan Bogdanovich which apparently is a totally different player.
  12. Actually can't recall exactly why. I knew he and the Shanahans parted way on bad terms but outside of disagreements over drafting RG3, forget why it got so toxic. As a Redskins fan, all the dysfunction, conspiracy theories and backstabbing kinda run together after awhile.
  13. I'm so psyched for Tony Romo to win a Superbowl in Denver.

    And Bojan Bogdanovich! Had never watched him play before he came over to the Wizards but dude has been exactly the soulless gunner the bench needed. He singlehandedly won 'em two games they would've lost without him, including one where he somehow scored 29 points on 9 shots. I'm not sure he has an assist yet as a Wizard, but that's not what this is all about.
