Pretty sure this was almost strictly because of Stevens. There’s something special about someone who believed in you when no one else did.
I hope the Knicks are throwing a max contract at a new team doctor. Their starting five will have Noah, Melo, Rose, and Eric Gordon. I honestly think Phil thinks you can just turn off injuries like in NBA 2K.
I’m giving the Cavaliers a shot. People forget that Kevin Love has never lost a playoff game in the United States.”
I don’t equate not being as efficient to being not very good without putting it in context. AI was the person entire defensive game plans were built around, much like Dikembe was the player coaches devised plans to avoid when on offense.
Buddy Hield (31.5 points per game on 45% three-point shooting) is taking full advantage of all the NBA prospects getting knocked out early.
Melo’s attitude with regards to Porzingis has warmed me up to him a lot, especially since his game has positively changed with it.
After updating my rankings based on Pythagorean expectation, Seattle jumped to #1 heading into the playoffs.
Is it too early to say that Brady is the favorite for MVP?
If Kari Lehtonen plays well, they’ll be a playoff threat. Their division is stacked though so it’s not enough to be pretty good. Their offense is going to be great and Oduya is a big boost on defense but Lehtonen was bad last year. It all hinges on him.
I dont think the Broncos should commit so heavily to Thomas when they have so many other young pieces
I’d be very, very surprised if they don’t go at least 8-8. The only problem is they have a very difficult schedule. I’d project them at 9-7, but 10 is certainly within reach.
I would be shocked if [Ruben] Amaro is still the [Phillies] GM in October.
Anthony Davis will attempt at least 1.5 three-pointers per-36 next season
For the Yanks [trading for Tulowitzki] makes sense, but it would make more sense for them to spend those prospects on pitching.
It’s absurd that the Red Sox fired their pitching coach. Maybe give him some talent to coach.
We will all look back and wonder how Grady Jarrett lasted this long
[The Mets] have their work cut out for them to make the playoffs because of the Nationals and the super crowded wild card race.
Eagles desperately need a safety. If they don’t trade up you have to think Collins is at the top of their board
I actually like what the Twins are doing. Smart teams are hoarding hitting prospects. Let the hitters mature and then find the pitching.
The McCoy trade was excellent for Philly, but this [Murray] move just seems to be negating it
