Very impressive.

LOL: Did perry draft him or trade him??? Neither or both?
Victor is what I hope Frank grow up to be. Super long arm player with deceptive speed.

Knicks1248: 1. Dolan should be more involved! 2. Why would any knick fan want pick 8, when that spot has a history of producing marginal NBA taken. (He prefers pick 9th instead)

Either way the Magic fans must be weeping- the two young players they had with great talent they traded for essentially nothing, while the young players they kept are basically busts.

This is where it gets fuzzy, Ibaka was past his peak but still young and a hell of a player. Is this the moment where ownerships says “lets make a move for the moment”? Detroit just did this with Griffin. They bring in Vogel who never had a chance. They trade Ibaka also.
What’s the constant? Ownership??? Orlando has a bad run of bad decisions. Look at the stupid shyt we do in NY?

Simmons not slowing down for the playoffs! If the Sixer bench can keep hitting threes like this, Dwade isn't making any magical swan song run. I have nothing but hate for the process (work is nothing but rabid Sixer fans) but Simmons is just a beast. Will be interesting to see if Embiid effs this run up...

Melo's shooting has become even more truly horrendous, but he managed to get blocks and steals while getting lit up by almost anyone he guarded, including Rubio.

Liked Olidipo saying he was "aware" of Dan Gilbert's comment on how the Pacers "didn't get enough back for PG"... Hope Indy's defense maintains this level of play...

GS beats the Craptors

You guys spend a lot of time commenting on the internet?

Then whom?

I see Finals Raptors and Houston

Anybody but the Rockets please. Can't stand D'Antoni. What was he chasing with a 6 game lead, the number one seed, home court clinched, going into the playoffs playing all his main guys big minutes? Can't stand Harden. When you can watch a guy hook a player on a drive to the basket and then throw his body into the same guy and get to the line over and over again I don't know how you root for that guy unless you are from Houston.

+1 Close last night. Think Wolves would of won if they did not keep sticking Towns in the corner on switches. Hoping Butler and Towns will carry them for an upset. Think Pelicans will do some damage as well. Rooting for OKC and anyone but the Rockets and Warriors. In the East I like Raptors and Sixers with the edge going to Raptors.

raptors have to get by an untypical 8th seed first. if wall is healthy all year, they probably are in the 50 win range making then a 4th/5th seed. so this is more like a second round matchup than a first round one. raps should still win though but it won't be over in 4 or 5. will be a long series.

let's just hope indy takes out cle - which would be epic.

They traded Oladipo and a lottery pick for Ibaka. That's just crazy. Oladipo is the franchise player they have been desperate for, and getting franchise players is the hardest thing in the NBA. This is why patience is a must with these young guys.

Haven't watched Pacers much at all... franchise player quite the declaration, or is he more like 1b type player?

Seems Westbrook brings the best out of the guys he plays with!!!
After a trade that is!

Olidipo played 3 years college ball and now in his 5th NBA season.
an over nite sensation!

agree, it did look biased.

Nixluva is posting triangle screen grabs, even when nobody asks - Fishmike. LOL So are we going to reference that thread like the bible now? "The thread of Wroten Page 14 post 9" - EnySpree

Oladipo was my pick in that draft. Was surprised that OKC gave up on that backcourt so fast. Oladipo clearly picksd up a few things while he was tbere. Had a feeling he woukd thrive back in Indy.

Perry is preacbing the long game, maybe in part from his experience as an asst GM in Orlando. He's also bringing in good young vets. Didnt have a good balance there IMO.

PG was a better fit for OKC IMO just Oladipo is a better fit for Indy.
Reason: Westbrook and Oladipo are very similar penetrating guards and this case 2 of them in the starting lineup was not a good fit for OKC

You have to shoot 60% or better 2point shots if you want to win without shooting 3s
