    How good was Kobe Bryant?

    Just a quick glance at the advanced numbers indicate he may be slightly overrated. 25th alltime in career PER (right behind Kawhi Leonard and Yao Ming), which is far less than the guys he's often compared to (Jordan is #1, Lebron is #2 and Shaq is #4). Looking at a stat that should reward his...

    1/26 Eff the Pelicans

    Of all the calls to complain about, that charge call doesn't remotely rate. It was 50-50. Sadly as depleted as the Celtics are they cannot punish Redick on the defensive end, and if you can't do that he'll kill you.

    1/26 Eff the Pelicans

    In honor of Kobe, the Celtics have decided to also crash and burn today.

    1/26 Eff the Pelicans

    Tatum out and Brown/Kemba a combined 0-9. 12 point deficit sounds about right.

    January 2020 General NBA Game Thread

    This Lakers/Sixers game has me torn. On one hand it'd be good for the Celtics if Philly loses. On the other hand, it is hilarious to see the Lakers struggle with another second tier EC playoff team, especially sans Embiid. If Simmons was a league average shooter from the three and the line...

    Yeah, if there's one thing Kawhi has been guilty of throughout his career it's not being able to pace himself properly during the regular season. Over his last 10 games: 31.5 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 5.1 apg, 2.5 spg, .8 bpg on 48% shooting.

    Markelle Fultz, Year Three: He's back! Big....?

    He looks like a very solid bench combo guard who will occasionally go off but ultimately can't be trusted because of his complete lack of an outside shot. He can look threatening on D with his quickness and length (he altered a few drives last night), but he gets lost easily which, (as noted...

    1/24 Eff the Magic

    Bad game for Theis to be in early foul trouble.

    1/24 Eff the Magic

    So, Vincent Poirier has terrible hands. How the hell did this guy dominate in Europe? He can't grab anything cleanly, it's like watching someone grab at a ball made of ice.

    Memphis Grizzlies 2019-2020

    JJJ has that Giannis ability to take one dribble from the 3 point line and stretch his arms past what you think would be possible, all the way to the rim. He's also the exact same size as Giannis (both are 6'11, 242 pounds with a 7'4 wingspan). He won't become the absolute bulldozer that...

    He's a 19 year old who scored 22 points on 11 shots (along with 7 rebounds and 3 assists) in 18 minutes in his NBA debut. He was clearly rusty and out of sync (hence the turnovers almost every time he drove into the paint, plus he looked lost on defense) but if you can't look at the raw numbers...

    I think he'll be an MVP candidate at his peak IF he stays healthy. He's like a bigger charles barkley, and the only player I've ever seen move like him at close to his size is Lebron. The problem is that he's a 19 year old who is 30+ pounds bigger than Lebron, he's already had knee surgery and...

    It's hard to take much away from today, the game is clearly way too fast for him right now(which is mostly rust). He dribbled the ball directly into a Spurs' hands twice in about 90 seconds, along with bobbling a couple of passes.

    2020 AFC/NFC Championship Games Thread

    Not just the Pats, they also avoided the Manning era Colts/Broncos in the NFC side of the bracket. Really quite disappointing.

    He's a very solid running back, which is a waste of a first round pick. Not really his fault.
