I'll never understand Lakers fans obsession with Brandon Ingram. They only think he has all of this "potential" because he is 6'10" and skinny. If he had the same skill set, with the same progression, but was 6'3", 195 lbs nobody would say shit about him. They look at his frame and think he is going to be like Giannis, ignoring the fact that Giannis is a freak athlete and Ingram is just average at best. Even worse, they have dared to mention the name Kevin Durant, ignoring the fact that Ingram isn't half the shooter Durant is.

But since he's 6'10" and skinny as shit, Laker fans swear he's gonna be Kevin Antetokoumpo. I've even seen Laker fans say he's going to be better than Kawhi Leonard. Same people tried to tell me that D'Angelo Russell could be better than James Harden. BAKA

He's going to be Tayshaun Prince with half the defense and 6 more shot attempts per game. I've always said his ceiling is Kyle Lowry. Gonna dominate the ball long enough to hover around 20 ppg, but you'd have to be an absolute fool to think he's a max player or a guy you can rely on to help get you to the Finals.

Anyway....fuck Golden State.

MJ, KAJ and Magic are the undisputed top 3. I think if Bron wins a title with LA, there's an argument for him over Magic. Not a strong one, but it's there.

I don't know how you can possibly argue that Lebron hasn't had a better career than Bird. At least magic has the "best PG of all time" and rangz arguments
>>
>>86156939
I won't argue that at all but last summer league it was an unknown, many said Fox>>Ball. The Lakers sat Ball both times they played the Kings because Fox shit on Lonzo in college. Lakers were concerned for balls mental status. Hawks are doing the same thing with Trae. Baldwin is a legit nba defender and they don't want to be embarrassed again. The kid is wayyy to undersized and is getting pushed all over the place by the men.
>>
Lebron isn’t a good basketball player
>>
>>86157031
He ran away from Cleveland to win with a proven winner in Wade with Bosh and then Ray Allen. Because he was scared of the Celtics.
And then he ran back to play with number one draft picks in Cleveland when Bosh had health problems.
And then he ran away to LA to where he thinks Kawhi will end up.
He runs to where other people will win for him.
Bird won because Bird was on the team. Not because he ran away to have other people do it for him.

Jordan, Kobe, Kareem, Hakeem, Bird, Duncan and maybe even Lebron are better than him.

A lot of you young kids never seen Bird play, but he had the killer instinct of Kobe, the clutchness of Reggie Miller, the barrage of points like Tracy McGrady and the craftyness of John Stockton. He was also an incredibly underrated passer, that was Magic's influence on him, and he had 3 rings.

It's not all stats, Bird was the ultimate winner and had everything you wanted in a franchise corner stone. Even when he back went out he still was putting up historic numbers.

This coming from a Lakersfag, he was the real fucking deal.

I feel like that's a pretty disingenuous argument. Bird went to the greatest franchise in history and had 2 other HoFers for most of his career. Lebron spent 11 years with the cavs who were nothing before he came, were nothing when he left, and will now be nothing again.

>>86157153

That sounds like a lot of vague conjecture. You can make arguments like that for a lot of guys. Hell Shaq was probably the most unstoppable, game warping force I've ever seen in the game but I doubt that anybody will rank him top 5

not him, but this tells me you never saw Bird play on a regular basis. Theres a reason why every HOFer from that era says Bird was the last one they wanted to play, including Magic. Watch some of the old games. All 9 of the other player on the floor knew exactly where he was at all times, for a decade, a third of that with a destroyed back. He was an absolute slayer.
>>
>>86157437

and everybody from the 00s say that they never wanted to play Kobe. 10 years from now people will be saying the same shit about Lebron especially if they played in the east. That doesn't somehow make their body of work more impressive than it actually is. I'm not saying that Bird is some bum, but when you stack up their careers side by side Lebron has a clear advantage

>>86155479
top kek
>>
>>86157535
>stack up their careers side by side Lebron has a clear advantage
No he doesn't, he held on to the ball more and got slightly better stats
Bird played a style that he would touch the ball for like a fraction of a second and send it on it's way like it was a hot potato. He wasn't interested in stats. He got them as a result of being great.
Every team in the league can get 100 points 40 to 50 rebounds and 15-25 assists
There are stats available to be had. Lebron gets those stats. But relies on others to win.
Bird never did that.

Lebron also gets stats by being great. If it was that easy to statpad on great efficiency then literally everybody would do it. The relying on others to win also doesn't make any fucking sense since Lebron has always been the undisputed the best player on his team outside of maybe 2011. Sounds to me like you just don't like Lebron and are trying to handwave away what he's done. The fact of the matter is he has the same number of rings as Bird, better longevity than Bird, more accolades than Bird, better stats than Bird, and he's not even done yet. Let's not even forget that he's done most of this while being in a shithole while Bird played for the most storied franchise in the history of the sport
>>
wait a minute

is trae young ducking wade baldwin again?
>>
>>86157634
I would also like to add
That is why Tim Duncin was a winner and Bill Russell was a winner
Stats tend to indicate a players greatness. Because if they score 30 it appears to mean they can score whenever they want. So when the game is on the line they will win it.
But that is not always the case.
One of the things I've noticed after years of watching basketball is that you will often see teams that, "can't get over the hump" they are always 2-4 points down the whole game. At the end of the game the score might be 102-100 someone on the losing team might have 25, but they couldn't win.
Some players have the ability to put their team on top, over and over and over again. Night after night. Duncin, Kobe, Jordan, Magic, Bird. These guys always put their team up in a winning position. People obsessed with stats overlook Duncin, because he wasn't interested in them. His team, like every other team in the league was capable of getting 100. He made a difference during the games to keep the team in a position to win.
Lebron has big numbers. He takes the stats availabe during the game. But he has always needed someone else to win for him.

Dirk doesn't have haters because he's the coolest, most down to Earth superstar to ever set foot on an NBA court. Trae Young doesn't have haters because honestly who gives a shit about him. Shitposting about his SL games isn't "hating on him", it's just pointing out the perfectly obvious fact that he's not built for the NBA and Atlanta was out of their minds to pass on Luka and JJJ for him.

Per isn't the only efficiency number. Westbrook shoots 30% from 3 despite taking like 6 a game. Hell he shoots way too much in general. Harden has slightly better shooting numbers. All 3 including Lebron turn the ball over a lot, but that's the nature of high usage and playmaking.

Usage is literally determined by FGA, FTA, and TOs, that's it.
That's what USG% is.
>>86158262
That's because you're an idiot that doesn't even know the definition of statpadding. People that make layups in garbage time when the game is seconds from ending instead of dribbling out the clock are stat padders. Guys that don't shoot 3s to preserve their 3PT% in order to get a contract benefit are stat padders.

I never thought about that, but what if Simmons talked a lot of shit about the Spurs, after they give up on him, to Kawhi? They're really close friends and they probably have been talking since he left. So, if we consider this as true, Kawhi would have JSimms and his uncle talking shit about the Spurs + Parker and Ginobili talking shit about him.

Dunno, it's a possibility.

Good deal by the Nets 2bh. Both contracts are expiring and they could extract some draft picks.

But nigger if the OKC trade Melo for JJ and Waiters they would still pay 100 million in luxury tax (because they would have to pay their guaranteed, multi-year contracts). It'd hardly be logical for OKC, unless I'm missing something. That's why the only realistic outcome is to release Melo and stretch his salary to save millions.

You do realize the reason OKC lost Harden was because they were cheap? And they are trading Melo now because he's not worth going into the luxury tax for? No one has cap space. The Thunder are going to have to stretch this faggot

They would still be paying Melo for this year regardless. They would also still be in the luxury tax. It's a matter of whether you can even extract any positive value (from his play or a potential trade) between now and the trade deadline.

The hate has gotten to him, he's going to get sick of not getting credit for his championships and being called a bitch etc eventually. 2 days ago he was arguing with a kid on instagram for saying that he can't lead a team like Curry.

That or he'll put the foot down and stop taking pay cuts and they'll have to get rid of klay or Draymond. He already said publicly that he can't keep taking pay cuts. Also Draymond and Iguodala will probably decline soon. 1 more year fellas, we're gonna make it.

Why do so many people think that the Thunder are going to stretch Melo? It would be the worst thing they could do. They save $90m this year, but they're still in the repeater tax for 3 years straight, and it gets progressively worse each year. They would lose hundreds of millions in the long run and they won't compete hard enough to justify it.

If they want to save money they can trade him plus picks or Ferguson for expiring deals which will could save them tens of millions this year and get their cap situation under control. Otherwise they just have to sack up, swallow Melo's contract and the huge tax this year, and let him go. I honestly think this is the best option.

>"I was having a discussion with a friend who's a Timberwolves fan and he was talking about how they suck because no one wants to play in Minnesota. I had to hold back from laughing in his face. How can you be a fan of the T-Wolves and blame the location, they are the most incompetantly run team in the league. They had Kevin Love, the best rebounder in the league who also gets a double double every night and is your only good player and he for some reason wanted to stay on your team and become the face of the franchise with a big 5 year deal. What does their front office do? They spit in his face and angrily throw a 4 year contract in his face after a sweaty practice in the locker room and he has to tell them that this isn't how contract's are done and he needs his lawyer. The Timberwolves are bad because their ownership and front office and coaches and more are incompetant. You wasted KG and Love's early careers and no one will ever be stupid enough to waste their career their ever again."

does it seem likely that LA will have 3-4 all-stars in their lineup in the next few seasons?

The only super team are the Warriors. With Cousin added they've gathered all of the pieces and are unstoppable now.
Davis would've been a better addition but this works too.

NBA just isn't fun to watch anymore cause it's all one big show. They purposely try to play 7 games even tho one team is far above the other.

and somehow people always forget 80's and 90's players didn't have to deal with zone defense. Loading the ball side of the floor like the Bulls and Celtics popularized in the mid 2000's was illegal in the 90's but it is obviously effective.

If Kobe came up in the 80s he wouldn't have a career since he wouldn't have anyone to model his entire playing style after.

Mavs did a poison pill deal with Parsons, but with the intention of forcing Houston not to match. Generally teams don't sign players to offer sheets just to fuck with other teams because:

A. It puts a hold on your cap space while the other team decides to match, and...

B. The teams have a pretty strong GOB network going on. They might fuck each other over to get players, but not specifically to force each other to spend money. Remember, they all want to do deals with each other at some point, so no point in burning bridges.
