  1. Lost by 2 threes and 4 steals. am giving him and Harrison Barnes the stink eye.
  2. Kristaps Porzingis 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Guys...put the Vaseline away and stop the circle jerks over your photos of KP. hes not coming back this season. next years rookie class is deep and there is zero gain in getting kp back ps- Durant is not going to nyc. This team sucks, management is doo doo and there is no band wagon for him to jump on
  3. NBA Trade Season 2018-2019

    I don’t get this trade for the suns. they have a backlog of small forwards in Warren, jackson and miles. Does Austin rivers solve their pg issue?
  4. NBA Trade Season 2018-2019

    Getting the wrong Brooks in a trade is what I’d expect to happen from a fantasy bball manager prematurely accepting a trade while sitting on the toilet during a work break.
  5. Lol, whatever you say. You’re a “fact checker”. Got it. Where does his efficiency ranking list him if you remove his 2nd round of the playoffs? He did get shut down pretty badly. He was the main factor in helping the team advance past the first round, as a rookie. Also, for a rookie he had an exceptional 1st season. History shows us that exceptional talents can sometimes make the leap during their sophomore campaign. you can poo poo all you want but you’re having a laugh using hindsight. Those of us that took him in the 2nd round took a gamble and it’s ok. This is the fantasy sports life.
  6. I agree with you on passing being a dominant metric, it’s the reason why golden state caught the league off guard, they put 4/5 guys on the floor that can pass the ball with ease and find the open 3. Rubio is a classic point guard. He handles the offensive flow. It is his job to handle the ball. Mitchell is the classic shooting guard and takes shots. I agree, the offense should not be running through Mitchell. AK47 came up during a time when guys like him didn’t really exist. There was Rashard Lewis, Kevin Garnett, Dirk is another guy that comes to mind. New breed of long skinny guys that had a great shot and created defensive problems. +\- is great and I get the difference between gobert and mitchell but they have different jobs.
  7. No one is confusing real life basketball vs fantasy here, so let’s get off that high horse you’re on. what Mitchell did in the playoffs for a rookie spoke volumes. I play in a very competitive money league and took a gamble in drafting Mitchell. If he did make the leap and brought his game to that next level...well then he would have first round value. Hardly inconceivable to think since he is the centerpiece of the jazz offense. Lets remember the hyped pick two seasons ago of jokic, who was a 2nd rounder based off of his post asb numbers. he started off atrociously slow and people gave up on him and he finished off strong.
  8. With all due respect to Rudy, Andrei at his peak was a total unicorn. Mitchell showed last year that he could carry a teams scoring in the playoffs.
  9. I play in a yahoo league and took him with my 2nd pick. I figured he was special and would make “the leap” this year but my god...the inconsistency from a 2nd round pick will kill a team. If he could somehow iron out the duds and not have them be so duddy, his ranking wouldn’t be so bad. His threes are not dropping right now and it’s making his overall numbers even uglier. i have no doubt he will figure this out. He is the centerpiece of the jazz and probably their best player since AK47.

    As mediocre as his stats have been so far this year. A player with uncontested minutes does get people excited, as we are on page 18 for this dudes thread haha
  11. Nemanja Bjelica 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Had a great game. he could be a part of a 3 man rotation between pf/c minutes hes been stable recently. What are some thoughts?
  12. Trey Burke 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Before hyping this dude up any further...just have to remember that this the Knicks we are talking about. if this guy is the real deal, the Knicks will find a way to f--- it up
  13. Mikal Bridges 2018-19 Season Outlook

    Ariza is too good to be on that team, they will have to move him and start the young guys edit: too good meaning, he could help a team seeking a championship
  14. Trey Burke 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    People trend. He could be a flash in the pan or having a breakout into becoming the next big thing. It’s why we are on this thing discussing it. The Fisdale rotations are a mess but Burke has been the knicks best pg for the year. Worth noting.
  15. Cedi Osman 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Had a great first half
