    Wow, so that ball that Young stripped went out before LeBron touched it again — missed call. Then Oladipo’s layup hit glass before LeBron blocked it — missed call.

    Cleveland’s offense is absolutely horrific.

    Drafting for need in the top 10 is not good.

    I can deny pretty much everything you said because the point of your argument was that Lance is being wrongfully targeted, persecuted, and misunderstood. When in reality he is actively solidifying his reputation as someone who is more interested in getting under his opponent's skin than contributing to winning.

    Lmao this comment is so hilarious in the context of there being a video with all of Lance's flopping/flailing documented just from Game 4. https://streamable.com/yfipx

    You'd think he shot 70% from 3 based on some of the excitement around here.

    Sure, the 33% three point shooter who also shot 33% from three in HS would be super efficient in a parallel universe. EDIT: 36%. Excuse me. Still not good and not the shooting savant people seem to believe he is.

    No. The opposite is true. If he played at a program where he was held accountable for his decisions and was expected to play within a team concept we might not even be talking about him. The only reason we care is because he put up big numbers due to an astronomical usage rate.

    His offense at OU was "be the offense". Doesn't seem that hard to run if the only stipulation is to do anything you want. I'm talking about the transition to running an NBA-level offense. That will not be something he can just come in and do.

    Assist volume =/= running an offense.
  11. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Teaching him how to play defense, run an offense, and correct a lot of his bad habits from college will be a major project.

    And how do we know that Young is not a project or is a better "basketball player" than others at the top of the draft?
  13. It's just that he doesn't really have a positive body of work. He acquired a terrific team with transcendent talents entering their prime. His lasting body of work that he is remembered for is the locker room fracturing, not getting along with management, starting interpersonal feuds, etc. When you do egregious things like that you don't get the benefit of people looking at the positives; and like I said, in his case there really weren't many to highlight anyway.

    Meh, they have homecourt again now. And I think the Pacers match up better with them than either TOR/WAS do.
  15. Except he fractured the locker room by intentionally using their differences to ostracize them. The exact opposite of what you said. Why is it so difficult for "religious" people to see the flaws in other "religious" people and call them out for their flaws? This is why we have Evangelicals supporting Trump and Roy Moore no matter how horrific their transgressions are. Call a spade a spade.
  16. You understood what he meant when he discriminated against certain players based on religious beliefs?

    Philly is scary. I guess that's what having 2 generational talents does for you. Any chance they consider moving Fultz at some point? I doubt that they're going to take the ball out of Simmons' hands anytime soon given how successful they are with him running point. And if they get LeBron (which is looking less and less farfetched everyday), they definitely have no need for a typical PG.
  18. I have this sense that Stack is gonna wind up here; Weltman connection makes it feel predetermined especially with Stein calling it a while back.
  19. Quick google search showed me that that post originated on Reddit and the guy who posted it basically said the demon thing was hearsay, once from a personal communication with an in-the-know reporter, and the other with a few more degrees of separation. The fact that it is even a rumor makes me lol
  20. Do we have to go through this again? EDIT: Posted at the same time ?4thwin posted the correct answer. Can we just sticky that list to the forum's front page? Or start a website to inform the public?

    You've gotta be trolling me, right? If so you're doing a damn good job. Steve Harvey is a known misogynist that has been accused of sexual assault on multiple occasions. Superb role model!
  22. 2018 Watch the Playoffs thread

    If you want to ignore the fact that LeBron James is one of the best public role models a child could have today, I don't know what to tell you. And comparing him (let alone anyone) to Trump -- yikes.
  23. 2018 Watch the Playoffs thread

    There is more sportsmanship and buddy-buddy behavior now amongst athletes than ever before. Wouldn't someone who is old school prefer the opposite? Also, teams don't generally shake hands after every game in a 7 game series; usually only at the conclusion. I agree with All Eyes On Me that this critique going around is confusing.
  24. Deleting a comment I posted. Oops.
  25. 2018 Watch the Playoffs thread

    Oh yes, you're right. I shouldn't have judged on a message board. What kind of person would ever judge someone on a message board? I was definitely out of line. I guess I'm just a douchebag and should take my ****ty legacy with me. I certainly don't know ~O~ like he personally knows LeBron James. Carry on ~O~. Your profanity-laced tirades against the world's most popular and influential sports figure are undoubtedly very apt. I mean, what has LBJ even done? If surviving and escaping abject poverty after being raised by a single parent, all while achieving national recognition and fame as a teenager and somehow still surpassing all expectation is "hard" -- then, gosh, do people have it easy these days. The tens/hundreds of millions of dollars he has raised/donated to charities, schools, extracurricular programs, and entrepreneurial enterprises are just meaningless too. His recent public political stances are, quite frankly, an attack on my whiteness. A black man using his platform to stand up and empower others in a meaningful way? I wish he would just shut up and dribble. Sorry for the way I responded initially, ~O~. And more importantly, sorry for offending you, TrueMagicFan07. I didn't think it through earlier but now I have. Down with LeBron!
