Jimmy Butler whined his way off a team that was the #3 seed in the West when he got hurt so he could be a #5 seed in the East.

For anyone who hasnt been keeping up with KAT btw, referring to the earlier post, his last 7 games have been monstrous.

35.1 Pts, 14.3 Reb, 3.4 Ast, 1.1 Blk, .701 TS

That's MVP level stuff right there. Unfortunately Minny is 3-4 though. Need Covington back as hes their 2nd best player.

Not KAT or Covington and only 8 minutes of Rose and the Knicks still didn't even consider beating the Wolves. They are not fucking around with this tank.

The rise of Mitchell Robinson makes that KP trade look better every day. Sure he can’t shoot like KP, but his defense is unreal and we still have no idea what KP’s long term health is like

He is the perfect C for a super team, extremely cheap, plays D, and rebounds.

We should start viewing Centers in the draft like we view RB's in the NFL.

skillset required for most modern centers is just so... niche as far as ability goes

like clint capela came into the league a bumbling goof who dropped every pass and couldnt finish anything around the rim... now hes one of the best in the league at what he does. everything required of a modern center can be taught as long as the guy works on it.

so if you can find a kid with a knack for the game or someone who can be an impact player on defense like robinson with his shotblocking or capela with his ability to switch and move his feet, everything else will come if hes taught well and he works at it, it doesnt matter if hes terrible at everything else coming out of college

those types of centers are just SO much more useful than the skilled ones who can carry college teams. unless you're joel embiid level talented, at least.

The counter-argument here is how essential Bropez has been to the bucks with his outside scoring ability and what Jokic and KAT have been doing to carry their teams (not so much KAT with RoCo out like previously mentioned) Those teams aren't as successful with Clint there and honestly, Clint isn't as successful if he were in those situations

I guess they need to find the niche within the niche

Dolan banning a fan for yelling at him to sell the team is amazing. The Knicks are a shit show and it's going to be hilarious when they don't get Zion and neither KD nor Kyrie sign with them. They'll strike out on the major stars (again) and give a max contract to like Khris Middleton.

And trade for Wiggins, we can't forget about the part where they trade for Wiggins.

3-1 with wins over the first place Bucks and Warriors

30.8 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 6.8 apg, 1.8 spg, 0.3 bpg, .462/.458/1.000

Apparently the Lakers' staff was begging Magic to resign Randle and Bropez before he let them walk for Lance Stephenson and Javale McGee.

Regardless of decisions on Randle and Bropez, it was insanely apparent that filling their roster with Javale, Lance, Cool Beaz, and Rondo was stupid as fuck

Neither of the two even signed a big deal at all, they're making a combined 13 million this year. Probably would have been a better move than signing the Meme Team.
