I’m not sure moving the fences back will help. Players are already hitting home runs into the second deck.

Valid point, and my post was mostly reactionary to the insane Zach Levine highlights from last year's Bulls game

You dodo, if that expanded court happens they aren't going to charge third row prices for the new front row.

Not sure if this was directed at me, but eliminating the last two rows of court side seats is still a pretty big blow to the bottom line.

Put the teams in dugouts below the stands. Problem solved.

The Knicks are trying to turn Mitchell Robinson into a thing. Meanwhile Jarrett Allen's averaging a double-double for the Nets before KD takes the court. Allen's going to be the third best player everyone's betting Levert will be, and Levert's fine. That team's going to be so dirty when Durant gets back end of season

They’ve already said Durant is out the whole year, but yeah I like that Nets team next year as long as Kyrie’s weird ass doesn’t mess things up.

I watched a couple Youtube clips and basically what I now know as fact is that KD is better than everyone but Jordan and Kyrie is the best ball handler of all time. Throw in Allen as a secret star, Levert as another really good player+ and you have the coredation of the greatest NBA teams in the history of the 2020+ NBA

He's really good but foul trouble limits his minutes and possibly his ceiling

Giannis is such a cheat code. Still think over the course of a 7 game series they can be beat in the playoffs and even though those team didn’t have Giannis Bud is kinda doing in Milwaukee what he did in Atlanta for 2-3 years. Great regular seasons then falter in the playoffs with not making the right adjustments/too 1 dimensional on offense.

He’s definitely a cheat code, though they’ve taken a step up from last year. They’re currently at a +13.6 differential on the year. NBA record is 12.3. Obviously they’re not going to keep that up all year and glancing at their schedule, it looks as if they’ve had an easy road so far. The only thing that stopped them last year was Kawhi, and even then it took Toronto winning a 2 OT game to keep that series alive. Barring other teams making trades or figuring things out, they’ll be a heavy favorite in the East.

It’s pretty impressive that Giannis won the MVP last year and got better.

If Giannis is hitting 3's confidently (and keeps taking them) the defense will have to respect him. I don't know how you guard him. He looks like a monster right now that can impose his will on the other team.

I'm all-in on the Bucks winning the title this year. Clippers vs Bucks is my prediction with Bucks winning in 7.

So Vince Carter became the first NBA player to play in 4 different decades. Amazing.

Bojan dropped 35 points without an assist, rebound, block, or steal. I feel like that has to be a pretty rare feat.

Edit: just read he became the first player ever with multiple games if 25 pts with 0 in those other 4 categories.

Second most ever. Allan Houston had a game with 37 points. Reggie Miller had a game with 34 points and added 0 turnovers also. Michael Redd had a game with 29 points and also had no turnovers and no fouls. He also didn’t take a FT in the game so all he did in the box score was take 14 shots (13 of which were 3-pointers).

There have been some epically bad takes by media members over the years, and this one deserves to be ranked right near the top.



Even the homeriest of Laker homers thinks this is absurd.

Kuzma isn’t very good, he might even suck. He clearly can’t bring a Booker level guy back. That being said, Lebron has his ways to make the market work in mysterious ways. Especially with Rich Paul behind the curtain. Kuzma is gonna get moved for 250 cents on the dollar by the deadline.
