  1. NBA 2017-2018 Season

    I agree for Pippen, not for Gasol though. Gasol was already an All Star and best player on a 50 win team in the tough West. He was just in his prime when he went to LA. As for LeBron, yes. Mo Williams had his only All Star appearance for Cleveland with LeBron (advanced metrically his best season ever by a lot). Chris Bosh went from a defensive 0 to a very good defensive player playing with LeBron. On the loyalty piece, I see that as someone who was burned by a team against someone still in his rookie deal. I'm sure Durant would have felt the same way if OKC didn't get cheap with Harden.

    I wrote an article on the very topic of why players shouldn't be loyal. http://www.rdtworldofsport.com/2017/07/28/its-not-the-players-to-blame/ History has shown the exact opposite. M.J., great as he is (and he is the GOAT imo) did never get past Round 1 without Pippen (and got to greater heights, winning wise, when Phil Jackson installed the triangle and gave others a role, never mind Horace Grant and Dennis Rodman being on these teams as well). Ditto for Kobe Bryant, he couldn't get out of Round 1 without Shaq or in his prime Pau Gasol (and his championships have Shaq, Gasol, Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom on those teams). LeBron made the 2007 Finals with a team that would have won 30 games otherwise and actually had shots at stealing the 2015 NBA title after Kyrie went down. Nobody on the current Cavs know their place because half of them joined the team in February.and the other half a decent to good, but incomplete players.

    The teams often have no loyalty to the player as well. Which is why I rarely blame the players for this.

    People still think Kobe Bryant is a better player than LeBron James these days?

    Sky Chase is just an autoscroller (which goes against like...the whole idea of Sonic) on a plane.

    What the fuck happened to Alexa Bliss in that screenshot?
  10. Mayweather v McGregor

    As someone who doesn't watch boxing often, that fight was a lot of fun and quite entertaining.

    I have made my own of this actually, but it is admittedly incomplete. I would send it out if people were interested. EDIT: For EWR

    Expansion is always bad for talent levels in sports. Teams on average get weaker. Honestly, the NBA is too spread thin. 24-26 teams is ideal.
  13. NBA 2016-2017 Season

    I hope people are putting together that NBA stats are out of whack because teams are analytically finally finding out the best ways to take advantage of the rules changes made in 04-05 (among many other things). Unless we think Devin Booker dropping 70, two guys putting up triple double records left and right and a guy smashing three point records (never mind what Anthony Davis can do) happening all in the past couple of years is all just one big coincidence.

    As a Jets fan I really don't want Jay Cutler. Just seems like extending mediocrity.
