This Moses Brown thing is crazy. OKC's found a few gems.
They do that routinely.

But yes, Brown has been a monster. I'm eager to see how much of this he can sustain. It reminds me a little of Hassan Whiteside ascendency, although it took Whiteside a long time to figure things out.

He’s very tall, very long and plays extremely hard. It’ll sustain for a little while but he’ll need to up his skill level.

Raptors took out their frustrations of being eternally on the road this season.

Warriors scored only 51 points in the final three quarters ...
The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)

OMG. That is a horrific loss. Seems like some sort of record.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Sucks for the Hornets with Hayward and Ball both out now. Hayward just can't stay on the court.

Definitely sucks for the Hornets. They were still winning despite losing Ball. Losing Hayward will be difficult to overcome.

Blowouts galore...Knicks are up 40 on Detroit. Jazz just hit 18 3s in the first half! NBA record.
Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

Whiteside waived by kings.
Rumours of a 10 day contract for the heat?
I know he has motivational issues etc but I’d like us to at least try. Fills our last issue of front court depth.
We don’t seem to be involved in any the major buyout talk for some reason. Booo

I wouldn't take Whiteside to be the 3rd string.

Knicks won by 44 over Pistons
Jazz won by 46 over Magic
Blazers up by 41 on Thunder


The tanking has started...is it easier to tank without fans in the arena?

We could have three games won by 40+ points tonight.

They're going to need to do something to fix this. Far too many non-competitive games being played.

When you have team making 26 3's in a game it's a sign that the shot needs to be rethought. Maybe make it a 25' arc eliminating the corner 3's.

I’d take him...we won’t though. Not a James Jones guy I don’t think.
