    Geo happy LeBron dont win but he aint 2015 Geo salty anymore. The Heat actually have a path to something. Time heals all wounds especially of you fill that time and Miami certainly has.

    LOL @ people suggesting not to trade Kyrie. They really don't understand how bad this shit is fr. He's probably not even showing up to training camp.

    Kryie sure knows how to pick his mentors. Talks to Kobe about sharing the spot light. Apparently he's now talking to AI for advice on practice.
    Why bring logic to a discussion?

    Ain't nothing wrong with talking to A.I about practice.

    I mean the only silly thing A.I said in his rant was that he can't make anyone better in practice, but....considering he had been there for 7+ years there already...and his teammates were still fucking buns on offense...can you blame him for saying that? You'd think after facing A.I everyday in practice you would pick up some of his moves, some of his counters by osmosis but apparently not. So he said what he said and I can't blame him for feeling that way.

    That'd be like, being Punk's sparring/labbing partner in SF5 and still not learning shit. Or learning from Knee everyday in Tekken....and still being ass. Like HOW? What more can they do to help you if you can't do it yourself at some point?

    Now, talking to Kobe...smart move. Now. If he had talked to Kobe say, 5-6 years ago, hell naw. It worked out for Kobe because eventually he got his own team but it took him 4-5 years of being mediocre and carrying a bunch of bums (he figured out soon enough he'd rather win than keep doing that shit for the rest of his career).

    LaVarr is both the perfect example of helicopter parenting and living vicariously through his kid. Make no mistake this is all about him and his ego.

    This was one of Ray's best games, but it doesn't get talked about because Kobe scored 81 the same night

    I'm sorry. Humor me!!

    what? its all an act to get his kids in the spotlight.

    *coaches aau game*
    *cusses out female ref*
    *gets ejected*
    *throws temper-tantrum*
    *next game a female is reffing and refuses to let his team play unless she gets replaced*
    *gets ref replaced, refs beef with adidas*
    *his team still loses with his son jacking up shots from half court like they are cries for help*

    but he's all about his kids and making sure they get the limelight.

    *watches lamelo's highlights*

    ... nm.

    AI missed his big3 game because he was getting stacks at a casino.

    Supposedly Pelicans plan on starting Rondo and converting Jrue into a SG. Interested to see how that works out.

    He was already playing SG last year after the all star break once they traded away Hield.

    In any case, I think he should come off the bench. Because that bench is still ass, and I'm sure they;d feel much better if they had some sort of offense in the game unless they plan to have either Davis or Cousins on the floor at all times.

    No chance their max PG is coming off the bench.

    I think Lavar should run for president, I think he is the only hope for liberals right now in the next election. We need a trash talker, someone who speaks their mind without filters. Could you imagine Trump and Lavar in a debate? The shit talking would be unreal and highly entertaining. Of course, he will offend some people and say some crazy shit but people like crazy.

    Exactly. They just gave him stupid money.

    And besides, they just signed Ian Clark. Him and Jordan Crawford will supply points. Tim Frazier and Solomon Hill need to step up. Their backcourt depth is okay, it's their frontcourt that lacks. Pretty much expect Asik to miss most of the season every year now.

    That's cool. Would love to play as Moore or Taurasi and drop 30.

    LOL Raptors.

    I guarantee none of these will be accurate, in typical ESPN fashion.

    what's important is hornets above heat. We'll see how that plays out this season

    BTW Ian Clark going to NO?? Really? I thought he would stay and develop in the bay

    I'll believe 50-wins T-Wolves when I see it. They had a spectacular offseason but real talk, the team they had last year should have been knocking on the door to the playoffs but they had a record as bad as the Suns.

    T wolves have had problems with depth for years. Not sure any of that was addressed in the offseason (rightfully so).

    I think that team can win 50 though... a pg that can shoot will do wonders for KAT and Wiggins.

    I also don't see the wolves winning 50 especially in the West, I would be surprised if they made the 8th seed. If it was the Eastern conference then it would be doable.

    I think the wolves will get pretty close to 50. Probably around 45.

    Given the team (and coach) Jimmy was playing with last season, this roster is a big upgrade.

    The bench is still suspect, but that starting line-up is looking real nice. Doesn't have any major holes.

    And since we are talking about the wolves...

    http://www.startribune.com/wolves-owner-glen-taylor-plans-to-sign-andrew-wiggins-keep-team/438444843/


    The Minnesota Timberwolves plan on signing Andrew Wiggins to a five-year, $150 million extension.

    Wiggins will not be made available in any trades, such as with the Cleveland Cavaliers for Kyrie Irving.

    Wiggins became extension eligible this offseason.
