Also, the Warriors are to reliant on the 3...The score was tied and they are running down screens for Klay to shoot off balanced 3's...SMH

The Celts and the Refs are up 4....Some horrible calls down the stretch

Had the sound off and was half watching. I know Kyrie seemed to go to the line every time down the court in the final two minutes. Tatum looks really good.

Watching the Rockets/Suns feels like watching two guys on a couch playing NBA2K. This is like a D'Antoni wet dream, lol.

That game was garbage. Celtics got so many ridiculous fouls and no calls. Still woulda lost without GSW shooting terribly down the stretch. I feel like the Celtics are the new darlings of the east and they play hard defense so they’re pretty much just going to be allowed to maul us at will when we play them.

I live in Boston and hate the Celtics. I confess to being wrong about Jaylen. Last year I thought he was a big bust risk. No shot. Looked lost etc. this year totally different

I agree re bad calls but feel they get the benefit of the doubt because they play w energy and most importantly play defense by moving their feet.

They play hard for 48

One thing to point out, i think the east is a lot better than people realize. A lot of good, young teams in the east coming together faster than expected.

The Celts remind me of the Riley Heat teams. They will never take a possession off, they will play hard every single game and overachieve in the reg season but once the playoffs start, talent will win out

Lauri Markenenn has impressed the holy hell out of me. He is the closest person in the NBA right now to KP and its scary.


Bulls really got a gem.

Maybe Phil wasn't so crazy after all...lhad Phil traded KP and got an extra pick or two..he was going to take this kid. He looks fluid like KP but he probably is not the rim protector KP is

TBH, I was kinda hoping Phil would draft him anyway.....the frontcourt would been hella soft, but could you imagine Lauri and KP running pick and rolls/pops off each other. Some real life video game stuff.

Shabazz Napier starting to really take off. Sometimes it takes guy time--especially when you are playing behind really good players. But he seems to have settled in as their third g.

KP nor Markkanen are even that soft but yeah they could kill teams easily.

@NYBOCKER I know right? I usually scoff at people who compare KP to anyone but these two are strikingly similar.

Bulls v Lakers tonight which means we get to see some Kuzma v Markkenan action...I'm seriously contemplating watching it despite how late it is.

Watching the Bulls. Its amazing, they had Grant in the game, still has that deer in the headlights look. Still hesitates like you know what. Would have thought Grant would have gotten over that a couple of seasons ago.

Thats why I believe it important to encourage Frank to be aggressive sooner rather than later. The longer he waits, the tougher it will get.

I see what you mean, but we have better support for Frank than we did for Grant. Grant wasn't in the most ideal situation with us in terms of coaching, mentors, stability etc. Chicago isn't a much better. Plus grant was like three to four years older than Frank is in his rookie year.

This, I think he would be much better here than for the Bulls. Bulls are really in shambles. On paper their lineup looks like it has bags of potential on paper but my god are they awful.

Are we not entertained?!
Is this not why we are here?!
Almost 20 games into the Season I gotta say it has been a while that I had so much fun with the league!!!
It might have to do with how my Knicks are playing ball... but generally its a fun to watch season with great play... good narratives and entertaining personalities (Mr.Embiid comes to mind!)

I personally am happy that after a "the rich get richer" off-season teams like the Warriors have proven to be beatable as well!

I really like what I see... looking foward to see continuous growth by fun teams like Philly and the Bucks as well!
