    Man how lucky are we that we didnt pull off a dumb trade for Russ or CP3... we would have given up a lot of our young talent just to pair those guys with Jimmy..

    If nothing else we would have good TEs and DEs for the next few decades

    The clippers better manage Kawhis minutes well because if he goes down, they don’t look too hot.

    Looking through Miami’s schedule for the rest of the year trying to project our record, and of course putting personal biases aside, I see no way they don’t go 81-1.

    Riley still knows what he’s doing. I shouldn’t have doubted him. The future is bright.

    Steph out for 2 months. GSW ain't making the playoffs. That's huge.

    And how about that Embiid/KAT/Ben Simmons fight???

    His national perception was bailed out by this injury, he is an amazing player but no where near the type of player they were hyping him up to be.

    Curry has always been overrated, just like most of the other scrubs they rate above Harden (except LeBron).

    Win 50+ games without another all star/HOFer on your team...then you can compare them to LeBron or Harden. Until then, I'm not impressed. Harden won 50+ games when Donatas Motiejuans was the 2nd best player on the roster. He is so trash, he's not even in the league a few years later, lol. Let me see Curry and the rest of those overrated dudes do that.

    Being a professional is winning the games youre suppose to win. Thats what the Heat did today with Trae Young out. If we can take one more game from Atlanta then we have the regular season series W which could be important in April..

    I feel really good about this Heat team.

    Nunn is just playing at a ridiculous level. He's playing like a mini Wade with a sweeter three.

    Miami bench is deep deep deep. I don't know how Spo will manage minutes once everyone is healthy and active.

    You guys may think I'm nuts but this type of Heat team excited and invigorates me more than the Heatles.

    Oh and I heart Herro.

    I do really like this Heat team. They're still sloppy at times. You can tell they're young and learning. But I like the versatility and the talent. I think it's going to be a fun season.

    Hardens dunk tonight looked tough for him. He barely got up there. He looked like a 36 year old wade.

    PWR you obviously watch every game, are Hardens hops really that bad? Or was he just tired of carrying the chicken with his head cut off all night?

    Hes a great shooter but that's about it. A great shooter alone isnt winning you a championship.

    There are guys in this league that on their own can carry a team, Curry really isnt one because his game is pretty one dimensional to me. Take away the incredible cast and hes just a great shooter.

    Lol. His dunks have been like that for the last 3-4 years. He does it on purpose for less wear and tear on the knees. It's smart. It's one of the reasons he's only missed like 8 games total over the past 3 years, average 35 ppg, and always lead the NBA in minutes.

    He even makes fun of lack of jumping on his dunks by faking nosebleeds as though he was so high in the air. It's funny when you see him grabbing his nose. Watch him after his dunks.

    That injury saved his legacy. He is still playing with a current all star (Russell) and a former DPOY. Anything less than 50 wins is pathetic with that amount of talent and coaching.

    He wasn't leading them to 50 wins. How he was the first unanimous MVP is a joke.

    Yuck. Makes me wonder if Jeff Bzdelik (our ex defensive coordinator) was the real coach of this team, not Dantoni. We looked like trash at the start of last year when he retired. We cut Melo...Bzdelik comes back, then we have a top 5 defense the rest of the season. We let Jeff go in the offseason. Now, we are a historically bad defense.

    It's gonna be a long year...smh. Dantoni looks lost.

    Pelicans hired Bzdelik. Our defense sucks thus far.

    Brandon Ingram has been on fire though. I had no idea he was this good.

    He was nuts against the Nets. That game was Ingram vs Kyrie and he was up to the challenge

    What’s crazy is last year every Duke game was must see. They were like rock stars. Now I have less than half the desire to watch them.

    Which brings me to my next point. I want to see Zion. Sucks that he’s hurt.

    I miss Zion so much.

    I’m trying to remind myself to be patient. He dominated in preseason. He went head to head with Rudy Gobert and could not be stopped.

    Not sure what to expect against the Lakers especially on a back to back night.. should be a tough game. I dont think we are gonna catch teams sleeping on us anymore.
