Whoa!


I guess Beal decided he wasn't gonna let that happen again so he just put up 51 on Portland!

Weak referee initiated contact with Livingston and then turned around and threw him out the game http://nba.nbcsports.com/2017/12/03/sha ... ial-video/

Really sick of all the refs. Guys are always on a power trip. And I wouldnt be surprised if they were still gambling on games.

I feel you, Koop. It's been that way for awhile. I figured once Joey Crawford exited the building that all the dramatics and power trips would cease. I don't think I've ever witnessed a ref "step" to a player though.

Victor Oladipo is finally showing the world this year why he was compared to D-Wade before coming into the league. A new career high 47 points today.

I said OKC traded away a good player in Oladipo. Someone replied he was a bum. I don't feel like looking for the thread. Is he better than George? Of course not. But he had little to no room to shine in OKC which is no different than Paul George's current situation. I doubt Oladipo ever felt comfortable in OKC.

Celtics avenged the loss to Pistons. Drummond and Reggie Jackson combined for 6 points. Drummond had all six of those six points.

That said, I'd love to see these two teams in a playoff series.

Dunno if it was me but I definitely thought he was a bum :laugh:

The whole gimmick last year with OKC was that it was a one man team. Westbrook really only had chemistry with Adams. But all the guys in the Melo and George deals turned out to be good players. Dont wanna throw any shade on Westbrook but that was the story. :hmm:

Hilarious.

If I'm not mistaken, it was you. I just didn't wanna say your name. Come to think about it, I saw something on Twitter yesterday where someone commented about how every single player that was traded away from OKC are better players without Westbrook.

Even said Durant and Harden were better players since they're no longer teammates with Russ.

They showed a graphic today of Oladipo's physique from May and then later from July. He went from flabby to completely ripped. It was like one of those fraudulent late night TV infomercials. Probably has a lot to do with Oladipo this season. He looks faster, stronger and has way more energy.

The Rockets have not lost a game that Chris Paul has played in.

Interestingly,he likes playing off the ball with Harden.

I love watching that team.

They missed a landmine by not getting Melo...

I agree tao. I question whether they were really interested or just playing along seeing if they could get Melo for a song.

They really are a fun team to watch and as much credit as Harden gets, i still think he deserves more. The guy plays every night, big minutes as the focal point of his team and just keeps delivering.

That offense is perfect for Paul!!

Still gets to me when people chop apart MD cause of things that happened in NY. His offense is what the NBA is about right now. Not necessarily my cup of tea but it is fun to watch and successsful!

Remember back around '15 when I said the forum was crazy to not trade Melo for Harden? Harden to Houston is a trade that rebuilt that entire franchise.

One trade did it.

Also, at only 23 years of age, Clint Capela is poised to get PAID when it's his time to be a free agent.

Yeah, we were crazy. But at the same time Harden has really evolved as a player since. He was a black hole before, now he is an incredible playmaker.
