  1. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    . I Found this gem on youtube.
  2. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    I'm guessing the lottery isn't deep this year.
  3. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Well that's what I was saying. I'm trying to write less and hope you all extend your imagination with the types of thoughts you just mentioned. No one knows anyone's fate. Nothing is promised.
  4. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Players come in the NBA ready from high school. There's one in particular that is mentioned all the time. :shard: If you're implying that I expect immediate results from him, I'm not. As I said, its half a decade to master the simple techniques. This kid 285 pounds. Mostly bone density from what I've read. Its all in his DNA to be that heavy and that huge at 6"6. How will his weight hinder him from becoming great in the league? Will he even be drafted? If drafted, what will be his identity and role after his acquisition? Events need to unfold for these to be answered without reasonable doubt.

    I mean..the move really looked smooth as well as the dunk. The motion in that move was majestically fluid. Though, I do believe that hop step looked like a travel. What is the definition of traveling with how LeBron -James- Harden has stretched the book. Those 4 were masters of variation in technique. T-Mac's triple threat was scary. Kobe's post up turn around was scary. All of Tim Duncan's posts moves and hooks looks astonishing. KG's 2 overall two point game was elite. Those guys were superstars in the league and known for being respectably at each others level. Now.......well............you can reference my old posts.

    Ok. That was beautiful footwork. Its the same standard I'd hold to our Magic players. Do it in the league and improve. Become elite. Easier said than done as it takes about 4 years to truly master techniques.

    Zion is a player I'm indifferent to. What I've read, he lacks no defined game. He's just an athletic body. Abstract to say the least.
  8. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    At this point, we should all hold onto some varied chimera. Though rationalism points to a grounded reality to lowered expectations, I'd like to keep my spirits high for these youngsters. I'm worn out from complaining and the tank has been a half a decade long with no light. I'll make some imaginative unrealistic light of my own if its not feasible in reality.

    I just hope we can turn Isaac into Kevin Durant. That's all I got today.
  10. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Sigh. Why does everything look like memes to me now. Even posts like this. It's all retorted banter. Banality is at an all time high. I've read too much.

    I see that post got some people heated. You guys have bad humor. I'm going to be serious for a second. If you follow the following Youtube channels, which I get recommended for watching other players highlights, you'd see the bias right before your eyes. You'd also see the in the comments section that viewers have lit them up for it. Their careers are molded around feeding LeBron delusion and they aren't shy about it. 80 to 90 percent of what these channels cover is LeBron when it comes to the NBA. The last 20 Cowherd videos have been about LeBron and the Lakers. Shannon, Skip, and Cowherd have brought up even their own contracts sometimes. They get paid at least 2 to 6 million a year to lie to people while sitting down so why not? Shannon Sharpe is the biggest LeBron Stan ever. Colin Cowherd cannot go 40 seconds without saying LeBron. Nick Wright will use any given statistic to spin LeBron James into the goat. This is why I mocked them in the post....I watch them to laugh at them. Then they invite truth bombers like Rob Parker and Michael Rappaport on occasion to heat up the LeBron Stans. LeBron fans hate Rob Parker the most by the amount of dislike he gets for appearance on undisputed because he tells the truth. I could post like 4 videos with Rob Parker telling the truth and the only defense they have is calling Rob Parker a hater; a learned banal retorted phrase. Why don't you all watch these channels for yourself and see if I'm wrong. I'm sorry if it looked like another cliche attack on LeBron. I'd say it was passive aggressive humor. Youtube Channels: Watch for yourself and experience the torture. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Skip and Shannon: UNDISPUTED The Herd with Colin Cowherd First Things First: Cris Carter and Nick Wright Speak For Yourself with Cowherd and Whitlock -------------------------------------------- Personally, I'd rather hear about Donovan Mitchell, Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Damian Lillard, Gary Harris, Rudy Gobert, Anthony Davis. These players are presumed uninteresting partly because their names aren't pushed into the spotlight. It's difficult to find an article or even news on these players because of everything is flooded with Lakers propaganda.

    I guess offseason filler will probably be 1. X player gets in trouble in x way; because america loves drama, mass killings, racial tension and hates charitable work in the community. 2. This summer?! Has LeBron James surpassed Michael Jordan for GOAT? Next Topic: What is LeBron's Window for a championship?\ Next Topic: With LeBron Gone, who's going to win in the east? Next Topic: Who had more help? LeBron or JOrdan? Next Topic: Passionately better? LeBron or Kobe? Next Topic: What is LeBron's Legacy after being swept? Next Topic: The Magic resign Aaron Gordon Next Topic: Will LeBron play with his sons during the twilight of his career? a. Shannon Sharpe: See...heres Tha Thang Skip, LeBron has had better offseasons than Jordan ever did? I mean..has Kobe had this? LeBron is gonna be the goat of movies and the goat of basketball. Skip:.......mmhmm. Mmm *nods head*. b. Colin Cowherd: LeBron James will lead the Lakers to multiple titles next season and the Warriors will be dethroned. LeBron, being the greatest player that he, will continue to recruit Kawhi. c. Nick Wright: The Warriors blew a 3-1 league and are cowards, of course they sign demarcus cousins so LeBron cannot beat him. This is why he's the goat. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- As you can see, the off season is fairly predictable. I will be laughing........all off season at the media for being predictable and....desperate to hammer their agenda into peoples heads.

    There's no middle ground in signings in the league. You either sign for a huge discount in the single digit mills or you get paid a fortune you cannot possibly blow in the near double hundred mills. There is some low-balling here for all-star level talent. Then there's the 1 year contracts with the cap ceiling blowing through the roof every year. This ensures the landscape of the league stays dynamic if we have upper tier talent signing one year deals.

    Damn........Isaiah Thomas had his career ruined within 1 and half years. ..............What a story this would make. He should profit from this write a book.
  15. Summer League Thread

    Well.this is taking a turn for the worst. Phoenix is in control.
  16. Summer League Thread

    Can we score..on fast breaks...easily?
  17. Summer League Thread

    Maybe its the damage of thinking that other rookies will be better than our rookies. Hindsight has damaged us as fan base..too much. After all......it is just summer league.
  18. Summer League Thread

    We need chain these players to the three point line and have them shoot for over a month. Problem solve.
  19. Summer League Thread

    Dominant was too strong a word to use as it exaggerated the stats. Sorry. When ayton has the ball, it looks like he's going to do something successful with it off the dribble. He had a mid rang shot and I believe two great put backs. He hasn't had to block any shots because our players are terrible at driving often barreling into an offensive foul call or live ball turnover. Bamba has been a force on the defensive end. His length is scarier than I thought. Especially after helped a teammate that got blown by off the dribble. He was able to catch up to the play. He was also successful on a Kevin Garnett like mid range turnaround shot.
  20. Summer League Thread

    Looks like with how the Magic are performing, Phoenix is gonna kill them tonight. Ayton has looked pretty dominant in comparison to Bamba.
  21. Summer League Thread

    Sorry. I needed a new Narrative..something original. I hope you enjoyed that waterfall very much. To be serious, I don't want to see any weak fast breaks anymore. Please, Just drive to the rim with intent to break it.
  22. Summer League Thread

    Uhhh......*scratches head*......; )
  23. Summer League Thread

    Well offseason started early....he had two months for summer league. There's no intent but there is contentment. Contentment with being a mediocre dribbler, slasher, shooter.
  24. Summer League Thread

    It's also disappointing since he's basically had a damn year off plus two months of post season to get his **** together for these games. We don't have time for players to waste this organizations resources. Time is a valuable resource.
