    Why is Steven A saying dumb shit like oh the owner backed the new Chris Paul contract and didn’t renig on paying him….what a dumbass. He was under contract they HAD to pay him he’s talking like the owner paid him like he had a choice to pay him or not but he chose to pay him because he’s a good guy. No he paid him because he has a contract and the law says he had to pay him so why mention that like the owner did something great man please

    D’Antoni is all about offense and running his starters into the ground. He hates defense and never wants to use the bench. It’s why he will never win a championship.

    Mike D Antonio is garbage . He teaches his players to shoot as soon as they get the ball ? wow!! he should try to coach defense at one point in his career and maybe he could actually win

    instead of blowing the team up try and get Ariza and Mbah a Moute, and maybe Beverley back first. Beverley is probably long gone in LA chilling but you might just be able to get Ariza and Mbah back

    How is Morey considered such a smart guy when he over payed CP3 and Cappela instead of resigning Ariza? That was idiotic.

    We’re gonna sit here and act like the Warriors are somehow an underdog without KD.

    Most teams would loooove for their 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th options to be Curry, Klay, Draymond, and Iguodala. I want the Raptors to win but I’m a bit worried that Siakum had to go 14/17 to get that win. Only the Splash Bros really showed up while the Raptors even had Van Fleet pitching in.

    And yet, the Warriors only lost by 9. That’s how crazy Golden State is. Yes, they don’t have as many options without KD, but it’s not like his shots are now being taken by Anthony Bennett, those attempts are going to all stars and an MVP. It’s not a typical situation where a team loses their best player.

    I don’t think even with Doc Rivers the Rockets would have won. Getting rid of DAntoni or Morey is very risky unless you can get Jerry West and Doc Rivers to replace them. With the exception of Toronto, most teams that get rid of very good coaches, usually end up worse off.
