It's always midnight somewhere...
@f5alcon As a Sambo with an uncle Timbo, I'm fully behind this.

@ThunderChick2010 @sammasaaron @Turfright @C-Wil I was bluffing, it's in the single digits, not going outside unless I have to.

@Undeniable Greatness Best. Troll. Profile. Ever.
@ThunderChick2010 @Turfright @C-Wil Do pictures of snow from Denver count?
@d21 Call me when they meet their team at the airport in the middle of the night after losing the WCF. Then, and only THEN, can we discuss who is "the best in the NBA".
@Perk-Punt @BallSoHard @d21 No matter which font I use, it's always the sarcasm font.
@BallSoHard @Perk-Punt @d21 They confuse me, too, but I'm treating them like a thought bubble.
Loved the Doyle Brunson reference. We need to find the perfect Hold 'Em hand to name after Reggie.
@Legendary_Dork @Turfright 2k requires you to connect to their servers for a lot of stuff (MyPlayer in particular). Servers have been spotty recently.
@WestCrook @OKC035 @TempBoy Brandon No more comments for you, bro.

@kfmsooner D-league gunner. Still, 1 point per shot isn't terrible. Although it's not good either.
@d21 Why the hell has Thabo taken 26 shots in transition?
@Bry Bry Adams still struggles with P&R coverage, which makes sense because it's one of the most difficult things to defend. The catch is that the P&R is a staple of most teams; trick is to play Adams enough so that he can learn and grow but without asking too much of him.
I've been mostly happy with how Brooks is using him. He's not overreacting to individual bad plays and yanking him, just going small more often. I think Adams' minutes will grow as the season progresses and Brooks will feel more comfortable using him in crunch time situations.
@OBoy Yeah, I think Russ' defense is criticized too much, also. His defensive RAPM isn't great league wide, but he's top 10 among PGs. Considering that position has to defend the ball handler the most makes sense to me it would have a lower average d rating. (based on last season's stats, FYI)
@d21 Well, he's basically the SG version of Melo. People liked Melo at first, too.
@Jax Raging Bile Duct @sammasaaron Ah, I only started following this one a year or so ago. 4 years ago was a vastly different situation, indeed.
@d21 @sammasaaron Well, there is some history there.
@d21 Couldn't you say that about Karl too?
@C-Wil Eh, Russ has a tendency to ball-watch and KD can get lazy on his close-outs. 2nd game of a road back-to-back though, tough to be totally committed to D when you're playing through fatigue and a sloppy game.
@Jax Raging Bile Duct @sammasaaron I agree LMA's the better player. I also think Serge is a better fit for the team.
In a vacuum, you trade Serge for LMA because it makes us more competitive in the short term. However, considering LMA will be 30 when his contract is up and Serge is either hitting his prime now or will be soon, I wouldn't want to make that trade.
