@d21 @ Luke @OBoy (LaFamilia) In every movie I've seen involving nanobots, they eat everything and James Bond has to stop them.

@OBoy (LaFamilia) Because at any second, his knees could turn into dust.
@The McAdams Bros @White_kiwi_thunder They should play just Adams. 1v5. Imagine how good he'll get if he has to play every position at the same time.
@_justin @d21 to Huestis though!

Is it just me, or does Roberson have Thabo's haircut now?

@DTVirgin This is the best expansion team ever.

@Jooseppi I honestly think he wants the team to play 80s basketball.

@Crow And fan favorite Kendrick Perkins
@Crow I'm surprised they don't do division blogs on the main site like they used to with the NFL. Maybe it's too tough geographically, I dunno.

@GREENE1148 @ Luke This is a pretty damning look. Nothing's really changed since then. Big hope is that he can improve off the bounce.
3 days, 23 hours ago on Friday Bolts – 10.17.14
@GREENE1148 Unless he improves drastically, he's going to be a huge bust.
Didn't get to watch the game. They had Adams on Davis and not Asik?

@_justin @ Luke Yeah, that's helpful. But I mean like OPS+ and stuff like that. Like some people say that Bird was an overrated shooter because he didn't take many threes, even though he was shooting more than entire teams in the 80s. Would be cool to get some context.

@_justin @ Luke @Sustainable Parameters @White_kiwi_thunder I dunno, if Glenda is real, then I'm open to anything.
4 days, 12 hours ago on Preseason Thoughts: Pelicans 120, Thunder 86
I wish BBR had era-weighted stats like Baseball-Reference does. Seems like it'd be possible after 1980, and it would be super cool.
@Sustainable Parameters @ Luke @White_kiwi_thunder Really? Hmm. I'm so bad at figuring out when people are on alternate accounts.
@White_kiwi_thunder I think she's mostly joking around at this point. But it's fun to debate her. Like prime DXL
Did anyone watch the game? Did Jones just shoot poorly, or was he actually trying to create offense?
@King of Carrot Flowers the third @_justin @White_kiwi_thunder It's hard not to criticize Adams when JoBloggs is around.
@Mr Unreliable Good point. Completely missed that.
BBR and 82games both have Adams assisted on only 61 percent of his buckets last season. Seems really low. Did he create more than I remember, or is that probably just noise?
@King of Carrot Flowers the third @ Luke He's okay. Really good on the O-boards, I think. Similarities are pretty uncanny statistically.
The Adams-Lopez comp really is a good one. Like it a lot. Think maybe Adams has the chance to be a better defender. Lopez isn't asked to do much in Portland, anyways.
@Tvaddic @ Luke I dunno, I don't consider it positionally. Are there really 39 players you'd want on your team this year over Kobe? Unless the injury really kills him, I'd say no.
4 days, 22 hours ago on Thursday Bolts – 10.16.14
@Tvaddic No. 40 does seem really low.
@AIaska @ Luke I mean, I don't think he'll win this year. But he's clearly going to be awesome, and the Pelicans don't look like a top-three team in the West anytime soon.
5 days, 14 hours ago on Wednesday Bolts – 10.15.14
@Bryson @ Luke @AIaska He's arguably a top 5-10 player and he's like 11 years old.
@AIaska I think Davis might have a shot at changing that. Maybe.
@_justin @ Luke @FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @Old Man Game @Legendary_Dork I think top 10 is definitely doable. But losing Durant hurts a ton, and even if Roberson gives ~90% of what Thabo did, I think we drop out of the top five unless we completely sacrifice scoring for defensive lineups.
@_justin @FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @Old Man Game @ Luke @Legendary_Dork With Durant gone? I don't see that.
@Old Man Game @ Luke @FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @_justin @Legendary_Dork If Perry starts, Adams should too. If it's Morrow/Reggie, Perk should start.
@Old Man Game @ Luke @FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @_justin @Legendary_Dork No?
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @ Luke @_justin @Old Man Game @Legendary_Dork I mean, that will almost certainly be the lineup that's used to close games. Unless Adams is really tearing it up.
@Thunder_Blue I don't think Melo will ever have a real shot at MVP.
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @ Luke @_justin @Old Man Game @Legendary_Dork Probably. It would be awesome if we morphed into a Miami-like smallball team. Don't see it happening though, like you said.
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @ Luke @_justin @Old Man Game @Legendary_Dork Yeah. And he's probably better this year. But I think he'd be far more valuable helping Reggie off the bench.
@FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @ Luke @_justin @Old Man Game @Legendary_Dork Last season, the offense rose nearly seven points per 100 possessions when Adams was with the starters, but the defense dropped 17 (!!) PPP. Like justin said, diminishing returns.
@_justin @ Luke @Old Man Game @FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @Legendary_Dork Why it's kind of frustrating that starting is so valued among players.
@_justin @Old Man Game @FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @Legendary_Dork I think you could make a case that Durant and Westbrook are able to negate Perkins' offense well enough that he's very playable with them. Last year that wasn't the case because of Thabo, but it was in 2012-13. Realistically, is the starting offense going to be that much better with Adams? I would argue no, not enough to justify his mediocre defense. Offensive impact is much greater off the bench.
@_justin @Tvaddic @ Luke Think he'd be fine coming off the bench if Reggie, Morrow, Lamb, Nick, etc. were too.
@Tvaddic @ Luke It's not a Brooks thing so much as we probably need Perk's defense in most cases.
5 days, 15 hours ago on Wednesday Bolts – 10.15.14
Think the only way Adams starts with KD out is if Brooks runs a Westbrook-Roberson-Jones-Ibaka lineup. May change as the season goes on though.
@King of Carrot Flowers the third That feels like a bit of a generalization.
Lakers are going to be brutal this season
6 days, 1 hour ago on Wednesday Bolts – 10.15.14
@kfmsooner Meeks is hurt.
@BangBangThunder Under, Under, Under
@_justin He's so awful
@DanielLawler I dunno, he's always been good offensively. But he might be the worst defender in the entire legaue.

@The McAdams Bros @ Luke @slowneasy @Kong Lambchop Again, who cares how much Perk fouls?
