    Ben and the Sixers are 2-0 against Don and the Jazz this year too. And I'm pretty sure Ben had double doubles both those games


    Beat it Wob!

    Yeah that's gotta be frustrating.

    I feel like lower tier playoff teams are better this year than in years past. Sixers are 5 over (on pace for 44ish wins) .500 and in the 7th seed. There's been plenty of times in the last 10-15 years where a below .500 team has made the playoffs in the East. Doesn't look to be the case this year...

    Very boring slam dunk contest. Mitchell was solid and Nance Jr was good also, and whilst his last dunk was not spectacular to look at, the innovation from Nance was cool, and I though he deserved more form it. The judging on these is always the worst bit.

    After the Lavine V Gordon battle a few years ago, where Gordon was robbed, every other dunk contest has been bland

    I’m pretty sure Donovan only missed one dunk, with maybe two false starts on others. I remember, under the old rules, guys missing ten in a row. that was not entertaining.

    Yeah, but there was nothing that made me get up off my chair with excitement and last years was pretty much the same. When Aaron Gordon was robbed, I was so pumped up during his and lavine's dunks. They were exciting and innovative.

    Mitchell deserved to win and I have no problems with that, just not very exciting year. His Vince tribute was good, but it just reminded you how good VC was and his Mitchell's wasn't as good

    that said, Donovan was a steal at #15(?). lonzo ball? markell fultz? :lol:

    Yeah, Mitchell is very good. I wouldn't write off the other 2 just yet either, but he is the best player out of this draft so far. I really liked Hood and was surprised the Jazz traded him. He just needs to stay healthy and he will be a starting SG for a long time int he league

    I am NOT a Westbrook fan. He is an athletic freak who is a very good basketball player, but I cannot stand his style of play or completely over the top persona. I also don't think he'll ever win a championship as the number 1 player on a team.
    In saying that, Zaza was out of line when he "fell" on him during the game yesterday. I had no problem at all with their first run in, when Zaza smashed him with a screen earlier in the season, but to intentionally fall onto a players leg is wrong

    For all you stat crazy people out there Lebron amassed 30K in pts, 8K in ast and 8K reb.  How many have done this before?

    No one.

    Who really cares about this stat?

    Lebron

    So I had asked whether or not John Wall was capable of playing with another superstar or is he not able to play nicely with others?

    The team is 10-3 since his injury and EVERYBODY on the team has improved.  THAT is a problem.

    Why would you want him back?!?

    Is anybody watching the Wizards/Warriors game?  

    You are missing out if you aren't!

    Washington is a completely DIFFERENT team without Wall!  They are visibly better and now I know why they've been doing so well.

    I watched this and agree that they play better without him. I'm not sure what they do with him, as if they choose to trade him,  can't seeing them getting fair value and they are a team that doesn't need a rookie, they need already developed talent
