I hope Lonzo Ball does good and is a nice happy story for he and his team. I don't wanna see him flame out or whatever just because his Dad has more charisma than just about every WWE wrestler on the roster right now. =p

Great OT by the way.

Fultz is only the third #1 pick rookie to come off the bench with Andrea Bargnani and Anthony Bennett in the last 15 years.

Great company there.

If you think this Cavs team can beat the Warriors you are delusional.

He is also going to make Steph and LeBron retire early.

I expect by All Star break LeBron will be finishing up the script for Space Jam 2 and Curry will be planning his move to China.

warriors win free




raptors SOLIDLY in 4th place in the east and won't get a single win against teams ranked above of them (cavs, celts, bucks) providing a painfully mediocre regular season and second round playoff exit.

You can choose to believe that this is bad. I choose to believe that it means the Sixers are too good.

Why does the banner have a bunch of old ass team logos? Those Pistons, Bucks, & Hawks logos have long since been replaced for example.

And it has the Charlotte Bobcats instead of Hornets lolololol. Is that banner from 2006 or something?

So pumped. Got my League Pass all ready to go so I can assure that I stay up far too late watching a February Kings-Suns game.

Hyped for tomorrow night - would be off the charts if IT was playing.


Also, I can't believe how fast Philadelphia broke Fultz.


Are we expecting any more extensions today before the 6:00 EST deadline? I don't think so, but will be interesting.

I think he just grabbed a random google image search result for nba team logos. Easily a third of those logos have since been replaced.

The only way the Cavs beat the Warriors is from injury.

The talent gap is too big for them to even choke it away.

Either that or LeBron has to average 70 and play hard on both ends for 48 minutes a game. Corpses (i.e. Rose and Wade) will only get you so far once you get to the playoffs.

OKC are gonna be very interesting to watch with Paul George and Melo.

The Harden/CP3 pairing could go either way.

Maybe itís Rose and old man Wade but I have a bad feeling the Cavs are gonna suffer through injuries.

Spurs gonna Spurs.

Lonzo Ball does good but the Lakers finish 12th.

Golden State Warriors in 5 against the Cavs in another boring post season.
