It might sound weird at first but Embiid comes from a country called Cameroon, which is in the western central Africa, a continent adjacent to Asia and Europe. In that country called Cameroon, the official language is french, because during the imperialist age, the french military occupied the country and had political influence over it. Usually, human beings from abroad are able to speak the official language(s) from their countries, because it's like English in USA, you know, that everyone speak it.

I would say that Klay Thompson is a character who tries to make everyone happy and constantly puts himself in harm's way and limits his own potential.

He is not afraid to do the right thing even if it means confronting his friends.

I remember seeing a game where I think it was Curry who was starting shit during a jump ball and starting talking shit and shoved a player. His teammates rushed in to protect Curry and push the other player away, but all Klay did was watch and deep inside I knew he was shaking his head. Only until after one of his teammates shoved another player did Klay try to break them up.

Klay is truly a great guy trying to be the best shooting guard he can be. He doesn't start trouble and always respects others.

Sadly, he will never get MVP mentions because the fans think Curry is more popular than he is. Now with Durant on their team, he will never get the MVP that he always wanted. He's not jealous of his teammates and truly believes in sacrificing for the greater good of the team. But I think it pains him every year. That is why he tries his hardest in the All-Star contests. Just for once, he would like be known at being great at something.
>>
how many points should a player score before we take his percentages seriously?
>>
>>80180487
Is Klay /ourguy/?
>>
>>80180526
I'd say 6 points. But if you score less than 6 PPG and still shoot like shit you're shit. But acting like someone averaging 5 points on 50% shooting is impressive is pretty sad.
>>
>>80180551
I thought more like 10
>>
>>80180572
That means you should only take like 4 players per team's percentages seriously. I think if you contribute more than 6 points you're at least making a decent mark on the team.

>Their team only slightly improved from last year.
Celtics were 15-11 at this point last year, how did they only slightly improve? They have 7 more wins and 7 less losses.
>They don't have enough playoff experience on that team
Kyrie has been to 3 straight Finals, Horford has been to the playoffs almost every season. I see your argument here but before 2015 the Warriors did nothing but miss playoffs and have first round exits then the next season they go all the way to the Finals and win it. I think as long as your main guys have playoff experience that's important.
>I think they come in high like maybe 3rd-5th seed but out the 1st round in 6 or out in the 2nd round in 4
Wtf does that even mean? You think they're going to be a 3-5th seed? Celtics could go .500 from here on out and still crack 50+ wins.

Tatum is one of your starting guys and is a rookie. He's not use to the amount of games or the pressure. Not saying hell fall apart but I doubt he'll be able to keep up with his playoff experienced opponents.
You seem a little too defensive over this.
I think they're a great team but this is a league of super teams, and the celtics aren't a super team.

What other benchmark are you supposed to use? How else are we supposed to judge the Celtics besides their performances thus far? I'd understand if they were pretty much the same team as before but they're pretty much new, what are you supposed to look at? Their 2k ratings?

>>80181069
>Tatum is one of your starting guys and is a rookie.
People also say that Tatum is only playing so well because he was NBA ready the most. So which is it? And the Warriors are really the only Superteam now. Cavs were last year but not this year. Like I said, I'm not claiming the Celtics are going to win the Finals, obviously it's pretty much going to be only GS who has a shot. But to not give them a little consideration is stupid.

Skip wasn't impressed with LeBron's 32/11/9 on 66% shooting because it was against the Kings. He's too predictable now. I feel bad for him. He can't say anything because LeBron has the most clutch time points and highest clutch percentage and he can shoot now. His old memes like "not clutch" and "lebrick" don't work.

Way to completely ignore the main point. Plus Nance is healthy and Randle is playing lights out on the defensive end. Embiid will have another one of his classic 7/22, 8 turnover nights that sixers fans are accustomed to. Simmons gonn have to ball to beat us.

Doesn't matter, 1 assist per game is putrid. Even wiggins is like at 2.5 and he doesn't ever pass. Brown has proven he can't create his own shot and can't create for others. His defense is good, but he's a one-note offensive payer

*1/4th of the season

It's easy to put into context when you imagine a 19-year-old running an offense full of mediocre off-ball players and overrated shooters. But eh, keep hating
>>
>>80184251
He doesn't have to pass because its not his game.

His primary role is being a defender and getting inside the paint. His shooting is streaky and inconsistent but he's still good for at least 10 points a game. He's not even the primary ball handler and cannot iso for shit unlike Tatum.
>>
>>80184304
He was a a high draft pick so it's fair to acknowledge major, major flaws in his game. He'll likely be riding benches in a few years unfortunately, a shame because he seems like a good kid

>>80184295

Yes, unless he dies before the all star break

Based on the early college season, who do you think is the projected number one overall pick?

I'm going Ayton. Nigga is a man among boys. Strong, athletic center who seems to have the potential to make long jumpers. My only downside with him is that he seems lackadaisical on defense; I kinda expect him to be blocking more shots with his size.

>Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram
>>
>>80184338
No one's comparing Brown to Lonzo. I'm just saying Brown's gonna end up as a bust because he's the worst offensive option on a good team (besides Smart, but at least he can create his own shot). Ball on the other hand runs the offense to the best of his ability. He can't shoot but neither can simmons, except you see the kind of team he has around him (Covington, Reddick, TJ, Embiid). It's much more conducive to winning than KCP and Lopez bricking wide open looks and Ingram settling for 18-foot off-balance jumpers
>>

He's literally the 4th best player in the East. of course he makes it

>He was a high draft pick
He was projected to be a top 10 pick, he was picked 3rd because the Celtics already have Smart and Thomas. The popular pick back then was Kris Dunn (who turned into a bust) or Buddy Hield (another guard).

Coming into the NBA he's not known to be a scorer or shooter but rather a meme le dunk defensive man like Andre Iguodala. Draft day """experts""" claim he's more Jimmy Butler/Richard Jefferson.

No if Lonzo didn't chuck shots like he thought he was Steph Curry he'd be seen through rosier glasses. Ben Simmons knows he can't shoot 3s so he doesn't try it, meanwhile Lonzo goes 1 for 8 like every game. It's reasons like that why Lonzo is shit

No one gives a fuck about the Lakers, it's well known they suck. If anything he should be playing well because he doesn't have the pressure of being on a good team. Hayward got injured and Tatum had to step up in his place and he has successfully.

Yes? How the fuck do you tell Kobe we're rebuilding in your final years? You don't.

You could argue the Lakers tried to retool around Kobe much like the Celtics retooled and then I think you have a very valid argument the Celtics did that better.

>Brown has been described as a "scholar" and "introvert". He is primarily a vegetarian and strives to obtain a diversity of interests including learning Spanish, studying history, meditation, and philosophy. He is also a big soccer fan. Many have described him as an unusual athlete, with many ambitions beyond basketball.Brown, who is African-American, assembled a primarily African-American advisory team prior to the NBA draft, though he did not hire an agent. He was criticized by some as "too smart" to play in the NBA

All these filler games mean nothing. Some fun match ups but in the end it's gonna be Lebron once again in the finals getting spanked by GW once again.

Unless Kawhi goes once again demon mode and destroys every team in his path like he did last season before getting injured.

Celtics have a thin bench and HOU is a bootleg version of Goldenstate, with fewer playmakers and more flopping. Besides Curry. Thompson and Durant are all better shooters than anyone in the cockets roster no matter how much they chuck.

Our hopes lie with San Antonio, they're the only ones that can prevent the 4th cavs vs gs.

As a sixers fan I would like to thank Jah so fucking much for being one of the most professional human beings alive. He could see the future of the sixers was Embiid and Simmons and knew he didn't fit but in losing all playing time in no way tried to ruin the chemistry the team had.

He lost weight kept his head high and will be rewarded with a chance to be a star with the guy drafted before him. I really hope it works out for him because he didn't deserve what happened to him

>>80186346
I think he can be a really good defender since he can defend 1-5 also one man fastbreak machine. He already got better as a shooter and if he continues with this growth he could be a really versatile player which is extremly valuable. Jah has nothing going on for him except post offense. He is basically Enes Kanter without the rebounding.

He shoots more than he did before and with more confidence. Also made it one of the points of emphasis for the post season. I can see him becoming a donkey type of 3pt shooter

Your create-a-player is also your GM model. You talk with the owner and the "demands" of the players are really, really petty and don't make a whole lot of sense when you are stomping the league. You can use VC to pay for easy FA signings, trades, and scouting. This year they added in a forced first draft class and fixed narrative that can cripple your team (trading away players without your permission, talk of moving to another city, owner inserting his son to fuck you over, etc.). All so very stupid. Up to you if 2 modes is worth $40.
