    Thats some good cool - aid they're selling down in Atlanta...
  2. Kris Dunn 2018-2019 Season Thread

    Man Lavine is just an old school ball hog, he is a bad defender literally stands at the top of the arc demanding the ball the whole time on offense. He needs to smarten up quick, if he learns to play the team game he could be a nice player, but he is all about Zac Lavine and that hurts his team. The rest of them play nice two-way action...Watching them I think Dunn will have a nice year, nothing special, but solid and he has a higher ceiling if the coach can get Lavine into line
  3. Aaron Gordon 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Is this guy a buy low or is he just a bust and the magic are finding out the hard[a]way [shout out to penny]...? He blows. I'd like to lie back but he is Barely top 75-100 now or ever in his career. Perennial disappointment. Stupod magic shoulda built around vuce and not Gordon.

    There is only one station on that voyage. First and last stop:
  6. Hassan Whiteside 20178-2019 Season Outlook

    Maybe hassan is actually a decent family guy and Wall surprise, surprise is sick of his family team after a few days

    I kept reading. I literally have no IQ left anymore.
  8. Bam Adebayo Season Outlook 18-19

    I generally rate guys based on their contract, which is essentially how the market rates them. The Heat made a huge mistake and MASSIVELY overrated Whiteside and he is on one of the worst contracts in the league. His attitude is terrible and that is part of the package. Do you really think Rick Carlisle would tolerate Whiteside? Man he'd be done with him in no time. That's why I don't rate him and as @jhsong916 mentions I also talk more about IRL basketball than most on this blog because (1) it's fun to chat about and (2) it is IMO the most underrated part of fantasy basketbsll. Appreciate the apology, humility on here and in general is pretty few and far between these days.
  9. Bam Adebayo Season Outlook 18-19

    Dude, I don't even own Bam, but I'm watching him close because I like his hustle and upside. https://stats.nba.com/player/1628389/ Bam 2.2 +/- https://stats.nba.com/player/202355/ Whiteside -2.3 +/- (worst since his rookie year). Sure it's not all his fault as his fellows starters are partly to blame. But the only thing that sucks worse than Whiteside is his contract, he is not improving his team: "Whiteside is leading the league in blocks and is 3rd in rebounding." This is all Whiteside cares about putting up stats. I've never said Bam is an all-star, but at least he gives effort into trying to improve his team and winning. The heat are terrible 11-14 (and on a two game win streak without Whiteside) and he has by far their biggest contract so a lot of what they do comes down to him and he doesn't care. Convince me otherwise that Whiteside is a good player. He is useful in fantasy while ever he plays because he is a stat chaser, but he is injury prone and once again (justifiably) he is in Spolstra's dog-house because his attitude sucks. That will effect his fantasy value as it already has. "posting this nonsense every week" I've made a grand total of 2 post on this Bam Adebayo board and both happened in the last day. Might want to turn down the hyperbole a little bro...
  10. Bam Adebayo Season Outlook 18-19

    Except that irving is good and Whiteside is $hit. They are a better team with Bam on the floor. No two ways about it. They need to just forget about Whiteside and his terrible contract and play bam. Why showcase whiteside, every team knows what he is and no one is touching that toxic contract. Just play the future big of your franchise... Surely

    Ladies and gents, welcome to:
  12. Bam Adebayo Season Outlook 18-19

    Hate to burst your buddles, but even with all the stupid franchises in the NBA right now no-one is trading for Whiteside this year (and probably not next year either). He has $52M left over the next 2 years. YUK! He has a poor attitude, is more interested in stat padding than helping his team, and they are worse with him on the floor; Heat are stuck with him. The Heat are in a really BAD place right now. They are full of bad contracts that they can't trade and have no chance in competing. They should just eat Whiteside's contract and bench him and roll with Bam... Bam looms:
  13. Khris Middleton 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Bud has turned this team into a force. If Middelton wants to throw tantrums like a toddler then I'd send him to the doghouse too. Middleton has A LOT to prove. He is 1/3 in the playoffs (finally made an appearance last season after two complete no shows before that even though they still got bounced in 1st round). He is a solid player, but this is not the time to be acting like you are some sort of HOF. Middleton is at the point where his career goes in a Klay Thompson direction (great asset to excellent teams) or a Michael Redd type direction (overrated scorer on terrible teams). This sort of $hit suggests he is more likely heading for the latter. I think the Bucks could easily replace him if he decides to jump ship and they won't lose much. He is a nice fantasy asset, but IMO he is a little overrated IRL, average defender and decent scorer. But don't kid yourself - this team is about Giannis, and they are good because of him. Middleton alone isn't going to win you anything. If he leaves the I'm sure then magic, kings or Knicks will throw a mega contract at him and he'll get his pay and then be part of those joke franchises (battling for the 8th seed year after year). Another example of why real life affects fantasy...
