NBA season 2018/19

    This kid will be a one and done, he should be in the NBA right now. Looks like a potential LBJ level talent



  • I’ve been following Zion for the last few years. He’s got amazing athleticism for a guy his size. That full package has seen him dominate high school and AAU ball. He has improved his outside shot.

    His game is NBA ready but it’s often the other stuff of being in the NBA that impacts on young stars. Going to college for even a year or two will help him with that.



  • @act-crusader
    No way he will spend 2 years in college. He would go straight in if it wasn't for the rules.

    Absolute freak both ends from what I have seen.

    He's a one and done for sure



  • Jeanie Buss, Lakers owner. Quite a candid interview, bits about the industry from an insightful position.



  • Zion is IMO the most nba ready player I have seen since Shaq ans Lebron. I saw him for the first time in early 2017 and thought he was just another flat track bully. Hes the real thing though. The kid can dunk from thr FTL and touch the top of the back board.



  • Leanard - Traded
    Parker - Traded
    Ginobili - Retired

    Very different looking Spurs team this year.



  • So Jimmy Butler has asked to be traded from the T-Wolves and his preferred destinations are the Knicks, Nets or Clippers.

    After agitating for his move away from CHI, amid talk that he wasn't a great team mate, this does nothing to quell suspicions that he is in fact a locker room cancer. Sean Marks would be wise not to buy him, because he seems to throw his toys if the team isn't winning



  • haha, it's like he said "...only LA or New York, no, not the fucking Lakers, the other team, fuck all that sharing and passing and doffing the cap to Lebron horseshit, I want to be the motherfucking man, I want a dipshit supporting cast who are only there to get me the motherfucking ball, I don't give a fuck if we lose every damn game, I'm jackin it, fuck the playoffs, and holy fuck man, fuck Minneapolis, I want some big man about town action, better pay me in $1 bills for the strip clubs, motherfucker."



  • Luka Doncic showed off his skills in a preseason game

    Kawhi Leonard had one of the more awkward pressers ever on media day. WTF is up with that laugh????

  • Did anyone else see the Hallelujah tweet from Andrew Wiggins brother after Butler said he wants out.

    Not that I’m a fan of Butlers, but his response was brilliant. He posted a video of himself working out doing defence drills.



  • @canefan there was a funny thing going around “the evolution of Kawhi’s laugh”



  • well. Shit. As if losing all those players to trade/retirement wasn't enough, the Spurs have now lost their two best guards. Patty Mills to lead the team for the next 4 months. Joy.



  • Patty and DeRozan starting backcourt it seems. Although Pop doesn’t really use Patty as a true point guard and likes him working on the wings.

    In preseason he’s been the 2 guard with Murray at the point.

    Shame that Walker is injured too, because I think he was a draft dark horse.



  • Can't believe how excited i am for the start of the season tomorrow. Seriously, in 12 months I've gone from a mildly-interested fan, to looking forward to tomorrow as much as the start of the NFL.

    And like the NFL, my team is going to suck this year.



  • Celtics with a handy lead over the sixers in the 3rd. Simmons off to a handy start with a double double already to go with 6 assists.

    Celtics have 8 guys with at least 5 points

    God i wish i could work from home.



  • Steph doing Steph things in the 2nd vs My Thunder.



  • Spurs win!

    Pelicans hose the Rockets



  • Defence is now officially optional

    Some of the scores over the first 3 games have been ridiculous.

    Rondo is a love/hate sort of player but I’m liking him. He’s old school chippy and in a league where there is far too much chumminess, it needs a bit of Rondo’s edginess.

    “He spit on me”, yeah right....
