    This is a blatant lie.

    I respond on topic most of the time. At least initially until tangents take the conversation elsewhere.

    He blocked me because I trashed him in debate, called him on his BS and he couldn’t handle it. He had a melt down and put me on ignore.

    Kyrie's return tonight, revealed the tactics the Nets will follow in taking the (hard for them) decision on who they put on the trade block from this season out of Dinwiddie, LeVert, Harris, or Prince...

    I believe that Prince is needed for at least as long as KD can be back on the floor and Harris with LeVert showed they better handle playing the wings than Dinwiddie does...

    There will of course be further checking of the effectiveness the roster has during the following weeks, but at the end, I believe it will be Dinwiddie the one that will end on the trade block... One of the other three remaining will be traded the following summer...

    Wait...the Pelicans are in the "rest of the league"...according to you, the Pelicans were going to be better off without AD and a potential playoff team.

    lolzzzz

    Especially the fact you thought they were actually favorites for Beal lolzz.

    I love how this guy is so arrogant that he thinks he is even smarter than the press and sports experts by calling them media trolls. He is truly delusional.

    Wonder where Collison returns to, I think he chooses the Clippers.

    The Clippers have to empty a roster spot to get Collison, if they do, they can only sign him to the vet. min. (which would bring them over the lux tax threshold).

    The Lakers have the advantage because due to Cousin's injury, they can add a 16th player on their roster and they have an extra 1.75M (half of Cousin's salary) on a "disable player exception", which they have the right to add on the vet.min. and sign him on a near 4.5M contract.

    oh, the guy's a laugh a second BECAUSE of his arrogance. it's clear he knows nothing about the game, but he's going to continue to puff himself up like he does...

    there's comedy in that, at least...

    As the season moves past the middle, some more conclusions can be safely made:
    1. The Grizzlies don't only have a bright future ahead of them, but are just a step before becoming contenders in the West.

    2. The Jazz are legitimate contenders in the West and are targeting to be in this year's finals.

    3. The Bucks have 22y.o. Dragan Bender in their future plans, not only they guaranteed his contract, but started using him in the regular rotation (they only gave him garbage time mins up to now).

    Assets on D.J. Wilson and Sterling Brown have been moved back in the rotation and therefore are the favorites to be moved by the trade deadline this season.

    4. The Rockets are a "bubble"... Nothing more than a mediocre team with no real future. Their presence on the front count is temporary...

    That is hella impressive for a team playing in the East.

    Do you think they play against the Washington Mystics in the Finals?


    (oh and even if you did mean the East, it would mean they'd have to beat the Bucks in the ECF)

    why is this?

    Are you sure that the Celtics will beat you in the 2nd round of the playoffs? I'm not... I think a Bucks vs. Heat ECF is as possible as the Bucks vs. Celtics...
