Sam freaking dekker. My bracket's busted but dang did he do it in entertaining fashion.
1 day ago on Enes Kanter sounds off about the Jazz, gushes about the Thunder
Main thing I remember about playing Utah is that garbage no call that made us the 8 seed instead of the 7

So what you're saying is I need more sugar?

Translation. Turkey. Nba. Ilyasova. 34.
That's all I got
I don't do coffee, and when I do, I have a strict 10 packets of sugar per 8 oz of coffee ratio, so it's basically not even coffee anymore. More like diabetes in a cup
Krispy Kreme is so much better at donuts than Dunkin donuts but so much worse at hot chocolate
Nooooooooo!!!!!!!!!! No! Heck No!
In that case, definitely screwed up dt

@Lost Ones(#blackpride) he'll be fine. He's already shown he can adapt his role as needed, and physically has been ready for the NBA for two years now. I just think it's funny that he really hasn't progressed as a player, and is actually doing a lot of things not as well as he did as a freshman, but scouts actually like him more now than even before.

@harmlesslyfatal "we will beat the warriors" we'd recruit great free agents, then Clay would say "wait we have to pay them money?"
@OBoy (LaFamilia) @who needs draft picks @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard block rate seems to hold up pretty well, unless, like I said in the Mike Muscala scenario, you were matched up against highly inferior players physically. The other problem here again though is that, with bigs, a lot of these guys are so terrible at the rest of basketball, we never get to see it.
@who needs draft picks @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard I think there are way too many factors to just count it off as translating from one level to the next. The one most consistent translation seems to be efficiency. Guys who were hyper-efficient in college or have very poor efficiency in college tend to reflect that in the league. Lillard and Harden would be good examples here.
Perimeter defense seems to be an awful predictor from one level to the next. Case study- Jeremy Lamb, KCP, etc. If you want to go back further, Delonte West, Jameer Nelson, and Eric Maynor also all were "good perimeter defenders" in college with high steal rates.
Rebounding, I think if you were elite at the college level, you will continue to be good, as long as we're not talking Mike Muscala vs a bunch of 6' 7" centers. The reason it doesn't transfer for some of those guys though is that they're just so bad at everything else they can't find the floor time to make their hustle and rebounding matter
NBA scouts can be such a joke sometimes. Cauley-Stein is going to end up being the first player to improve his draft stock, that was already mid-first/ lotto to start with, by getting older each year and actually producing less and less.
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#GiveSinglerWaitersMins] i think it's close. WVU's got some kahunas. They won't go down easily
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#GiveSinglerWaitersMins] @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @harmlesslyfatal "we will beat the warriors" @MarkPetersen3 um. I'll pass on both options, and just hang out on car forums only instead
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#GiveSinglerWaitersMins] @harmlesslyfatal "we will beat the warriors" @MarkPetersen3 lol if Kanter walks, DT will explode, killing TO of radiation poisoning
I used to love how Bill Walton would make a sure-fire, hard stance pick in the pre-game show, and then change said pick at half time as if he picked them from the beginning, and NEVER get called on it.
Just kidding. I never could stand Bill Walton, and this got on my nerves. Screw that guy.
@Tonitrus -__- make it stop
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#GiveSinglerWaitersMins] @DVoegeli if you practice anything enough you can make it work at least sometimes:

@Dont Hate On The Brodie is he onion, pear, apple, or cardboard box shaped?
@Dont Hate On The Brodie it's actually the announcing that the NBA has overridden the trade deadline, and we will be sending KD to Houston, with Harden going to Bill Simmons in Boston, and we get back Perk and Lebron, but mostly Perk.
@yarkmu i think Kanter's the better rebounder, but Okafor's got a very solid nose for the ball and good positioning as well. Defensively he's not great, but I would say his fundamentals off the ball are a good bit better than Kanter's, although not wonderful. I also think his offensive game is a tiny bit more developed at a pretty fresh 19 years old than Kanter's was.
Easy to make the comparison since they're both post-up oriented bigs, but I think at the same age, Okafor's a bit more well rounded prospect than Kanter
@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW it's almost impossible, but im refusing to fall into this like-trap

@Sustainable Parameters @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @Poopy Jones *Formerly Tvaddic* im not saying he's a model coach, or even that the banging up guys is good. Honestly, I could see him being tough to work with as a support staff member, but he's one of the best at doing the most with the least. Don't rank him number one, but you've got to rank him ahead of all the guys he's beating with inferior players for years now.
@Poopy Jones *Formerly Tvaddic* people hold onto this "Thibs sucks because he plays players too much" argument so hard, but won't acknowledge how successful his team's been over the years despite playing more games with backups starting than probably anybody since the Greg Oden/ Brandon Roy Blazers.
@The Dream Is Free @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @DVoegeli well do you score by takedowns, pins, or reversals?
@DVoegeli im not sure the rules of this sport, but... who won?
@Poopy Jones *Formerly Tvaddic* @OBoy (LaFamilia) except it's not. It's more like saying Kobe is better because more playoff wins with no rangs if he mythologically lost his championships

@Mother Teresa Russ like "Sorry brodie, just trying out this new move Dion was showing me. Works 100 percent of the time, 30% of the time every time"
@nowthatsThunderBball current actress, soon to be soft porn star if DT has its way
Which I will not object to
@okcjim I think one thing with all the other teams is that not necessarily every guy on the roster is a good defender, but they have such good defensive units. A perfect example would be the "star-less" Pistons. Defensively, they were monstrous, and at the time, very few would nitpick Rip Hamilton's defense. But at the end of the day, he was a doo-doo defender.
Same goes for Memphis and San Antonio, and is becoming more and more the case with Golden State. There are bad defenders in the rotation, but they sure are hard to pick out because of how systematically sound the team is defensively.
went and read some of El Prez's comments on TO. Sounds like a bunch of bitching and moaning about DT's bitching and moaning.
Welcome back to "Rondo is better than Westbrook" turned to "Rondo's a horrible basketball player and his triple doubles aren't real" 2.0
@sammasaaron @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard i cant argue with this. Dion Waiters is trash
We still really talking about El Prez? A commenter on a community, article-based website left, because he didn't like the writing anymore (which, if you've been here since the old days, you'd have to admit has taken a pretty significant plunge), and didn't feel allegiance to the community. Am I missing some kind of personal attacks or something, because it seems like a pretty moot point getting blown way up.

Come join your Iowan brethren D'Angelo. Let the tank flow through you!
@BiLL'FKN'Murray! i think altering the defensive scheme at this point could be disastrous. The last thing we want is people having to think twice before making decisions. I think, for now, you try to out-offense everybody you can to fight our way into the playoffs, and then pick up where we left off once we have more of our personnel back.
