Doesn't really have a choice, no one around LBJ can really shoot.

Rondo/Ball give you no floor spacing. Kuzma can hit it from deep but he can't defend the rim which complicates things.

Walton isn't doing anything. I think he's a really good coach in any other situation. LBJ neutralizes his coach. He plays the way he wants, he LeGMs the way he wants. Which is why he's lost so many Finals.

So, if Lebron wasn't the so called GM as you say,and let the real gm do his job, are you saying they wouldn't have lost to the warriors the other 2 times? Explain! Also, since you claim Lebron is the coach and GM of all of his teams, does he get credit for beating 72 win team in the finals? If so, he should have won Mvp, gm and coach h of the year that year. That was one hell of a run.

On a side note Pho and Ayton look kinda special!

Didn't melo admit to being mentally challenged?

speaking of mental midgets, Shump came off the bench for the Kings last night. Somehow in 19 minutes managed to be -29 in the boxscore in a game where the Kings only lost by 6. How the phuck does that even happen??!?!?

he kept shooting at his own basket

that was very funny

I'd forgotten how much I hated this signature Iso-Melo move (4th video down)

https://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/nba-highlights-carmelo-anthony-brings-his-mid-range-madness-to-rockets-debut-and-it-doesnt-go-well/

dribble, dribble, pretend your reading the defence, all team mates stand around because they know he ain't passing,, dribble, dribble, throw up a contested mid range shot that misses badly

Can't look at raw scores. Teams play at a much faster pace. Plus, it's the beginning of the season. Things tighten up as the year goes on

Have not liked the gameplay in the games I've looked at so far...reminds me of what the NFL has done to increase scoring, and the lack of skill now being exhibited in the swing for the fences or strikeout trying MLB.

That Lakers Rockets fight was crazy. What was Brandon Ingram thinking. Also Rondo is beyond repair and cp3 needs meds

Your quite the "Meds" dispenser! LOL
I think Ingram was frustrated that Harden creates the contact as he does and gets the calls. It was stupid to come back in and throw the punch. He only 4 games?
Never been a Rondo fan. Dude is a mess. I thought Paul's response ok and in my mind both get ejected at that point. Rondo threw a hell of a punch and he gets just one more then Paul?
Paul is an *******, Harden destroys opponents and Rondo is somewhere on the spectrum. That's a bad combo. I respect Pauls and Harden's game. They get it done.
Melo is smiling. Lebron is above all of this. I don't find fault on him calming Paul down. If not perhaps it gets worse.
And Stephenson is behaving properly!!!
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)

biggest surprise of the season that he didn't get involved in that melee. he actually pulled ingram away.
for once, are we not happy that this stupidity is not happening with the knicks

Speaking of re-treads, Nik Stauskas is looking good in the few games he's played. Portland resurrected Shabazz Napier's career last year. I wonder if they'll help get another guard overpaid this season.

That's the only thing really worth noticing. Don't care about Rondo or Paul's suspensions. Have Ingram on a couple of fantasy teams, so that'll hurt.

Genuinely happy for Detroit fans. Reminds me of the time Melo scored 62 at MSG.

Yeah, it was speculated that the hoped a star like Blake could help attendance. I'm rooting for the city until the Pistons become good.
