    Donovan Mitchell has a good chance of winning the ROY too.

    Rookie of the year has been Ben Simmons' award to lose since the start of the season. He's leading his team into the playoffs for the first time in a few seasons w/ monster stats to back it up, as a rookie. Tonight already had a triple double at the start of the 2nd quarter. Kuz, Donovan are more than worthy candidates for ROY if Ben wasn't already running away with it.

    WHAT THE FUCK! Lebrons team compared to Stephs is overpowered as fuck.

    Pretty sure LeBron got to pick the first five players before Steph even got to pick.

    That or Steph is the dumbest team captain. :lolol

    I’m not suprised how the rosters came out the more i look at it. Lebron as usual, wants to have all the best players which dosent always translate to a good team. Steph picked his warrior buddies and i think he has a better “team” not by talent, but overall.

    Also there is a whole lot of selfish players on lebrons team.


    We’ll see...

    Wait, are you saying that Horace Grant, Anfernee Hardaway, Shaq, Dennis Scott and Nick Anderson were "some good players, but no star players"? How old are you exactly?

    That year they definitely had a better team then the bulls. Shaq was a SUPER STAR, so was Hardaway. Horace Grant may have not been on the box of Wheaties, but he was one of the best defensive players in the NBA. That is not even touching Scott and Anderson.

    If Shaq didn't leave Anfernee, they would have have dominated for years, and people would say Kobe who?

    Damn, Boogie may be out for the rest of the season with a torn left Achilles.

    Completely irrelevant on a game level, but I absolutely LOVE the City Edition jerseys. The Miami Vice jerseys are some of the best NBA jerseys in recent memory.

    With Boogie out for at least the rest of the season maybe Pels would be more open to moving AD now...

    That's about as bad of luck Boogie got with this injury. He was bout to get his first taste at the playoffs and this is his contract year.

    Really hope he can get back to being the same player for next season.

    A Celtics/Warriors finals seems like it’d be a lot of fun.

    If Gordon Hayward does come back before the post season begins, I'd be very concerned if I'm the Warriors. The Celtics (and the Rockets) are perfectly capable of upsetting the Warriors.

    Warriors didn’t have Jordan bell or McCaw who are very good role players, but celtics didn’t have smart or Hayward. They gave us a good run for our money last night.

    Anyone who thinks celtics arent better then cavs are Lebron Lovers.

    Celtics fully healthy vs warriors fully healthy would go 7 games.

    Regular season don't mean shit dude. Remember the Cs last year? They were the top seed with home court, did that matter? Playoffs are a different animal.

    ^agree with TM there, until these Celts beat the Cavs in a 7 game playoff series I'm reserving judgement. Lebron & Co's midseason woes are nothing new, and history has shown that time and time again as they plow their way thru the EC to the Finals each year.

    Blake Griffin traded to the Pistons.

    DeAndre's probably wondering why the hell did he let this bastards convince him to stay in LA. :lol

    Cavs were never this bad, Celtics are way better, and if Hayward comes back for the playoffs, lawd. Makes Isaiah Thomas useless.
