    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    Even if the Lakers fill out the rotation with some solid players, I think crowning them title favorites or top contenders is rash. Golden State will be greatly hampered next season, but there is still a wall of really good teams in the West. Nobody is talking about any of them, but Durant/Klay...

    Mike'd Up: The Mike Francesa Show

    So I was driving to New Jersey last weekend and I told my friends when we got into CT that at 4 p.m. we had to turn on Mike Francesca. My friends are sports fans but had no idea who Francesca was, and I just told him he was this guy with a New York accent whose old and gets into fights with his...

    2019 Gronk Watch: NFL? WWE? PG13?

    I've seen hundreds of videos of athletes and celebrities visiting kids in the hospital and I don't think I've ever seen someone as enthusiastic and passionate as Gronk. He put on a johnnie and did the Cha Cha Slide with a kid, I mean come on. Great video, thanks for sharing it.

    Old guys playing in different eras

    When you go as far back as Russell it becomes very difficult to project. A Center was not supposed to really even take mid-range jumpers and if you did you got yelled at. It's so much harder to project what Russell would look like extending his shooting range, than a guy like Jordan who did take...

    Old guys playing in different eras

    Alex English is another guy who scored a million points just moving without the ball and knocking down mid-range jumpshots, but also never shot threes. Considering he scored 26,000 points without them, you could argue he could have been even better in the modern-era.

    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    What if the GM of New Orleans knows what a LeBron-led franchise is like? This is a deal where New Orleans is banking on Laker missteps. Ball just isn’t a high-potential player to me. He can’t shoot and can’t get to the rim which limits the effectiveness of his court vision. Ingram was playing...

    Yeah like when Dwight Howard joined Kobe.

    Jordan was the greatest mid-range shooter of all-time. If he was born 20 years later I have no doubt he would have been an excellent three point shooter.

    Yeah, even if the team has a lower ceiling than last season, I think the C’s should be a lot more likeable and fun to watch next season.

    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    It sucks that the Lakers manage to be a complete tire fire of an organization and yet have still stumbled their way into acquiring another major star. The optimistic view is that the Lakers’ front office is still a tire fire; and LeBron might not be able to get along with Davis/other teammates...

    David Robinson would be interesting because I don’t think bigs were emancipated enough during his career to fully take advantage of his skills. Hakeem was a better player, but Hakeem’s skills were better for that era of “dump it inside and go to work”. I’d love to see Robinson in the modern era...

    Jordan would probably be better if he grew up to play today's basketball because he would shoot more threes instead of contested twos and wouldn't get hammered as hard when he went to the basket. Kevin Garnett would be better as a modern era five who could switch everything on defense and also...

    The 2nd Season - 2019 Playoff Thread

    The 90s and 2000s definitely had hard, physical defense, even if today the athletes are a bit better and the schemes are probably more refined. You can just look at the average ppg and the shooting percentages and see that it was more difficult to score. Any era before that, from the 80s on...

    The 2nd Season - 2019 Playoff Thread

    I thought it was pretty interesting that after he shot his free throws Klay was running around and looked like he could possibly play; but a few minutes later they showed him on crutches taking two inch steps down the hallway.

    Kind of a monster close out game for Lowry, 27-7-10 and really good defense on Curry.

    Really happy for Gasol/Lowry/Ibaka. Three guys who had been in a million playoff games and never won, finally climbed that mountain.

    An admirable defense by Golden State, it just wasn’t enough. Congrats to Toronto, really likeable team and the fans suffered a lot. Huge for basketball in Canada.
