    Kawhi will be a Laker, if not by the trade deadline, for sure during free agency next year. Toronto was dumb to trade for him.

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    a lot of talk about LeBron playing the 4 and at times the 5, but last night the Lakers started a lineup of LeBron, Hart, McGee, Ingram and Kuzma. imo, that is the best lineup the lakers can put out there - maybe swapping Zubac for McGee. granted, with Ball and Rondo, that lineup realistically won't see a lot of minutes, but it's a group that would be tough to contend with.

    He was out there, but the defense was sagging off him. They had to know he could shoot and hit from there.

    It almost looked like the guy defending him (Forbes) was expecting a screen and the shot from out there took him completely off guard. But you're right, unless you've been living in a cave, you had to know that's in his range.

    It was a tie game and he took the shot with 5 seconds on the clock. Of course he was sagging off him. Why would you play him 35 feet from the rim in that situation? He didn't even walk in to the shot. It was actually an incredibly stupid shot to take in that situation.

    all i said was that it was in trae young's range and they had to know that. i didn't say Forbes effed up - just said it took him off guard as it would anybody. even referred to the shot as "nuts". so not sure where we disagree here.

    Ha. I imagine it’s coincidence that your view is that of a Warriors’ fan? I have yet to hear anyone outside the Bay Area even suggest that the ever-increasing hyper-concentration of talent is good for the league. But then again, as a Thunder fan my opinion is far from unbiased.

    I am a devoted Jazz fan, but have followed warriors as my local team whose games I have attended. In fact, just yesterday as I was returning from the Jazz/Kings season opener with two of my kids, we were reminiscing about the days of yore when they were young and the warriors were crappy and for $100 you could get a family pack of four tickets, four hotdogs, four bags of chips and four drinks. It was a nice deal and we used to go as often as we could to see the Jazz or other interesting teams come into town. I now don't often go to the warriors (usually only when Jazz are in town) as ticket prices are sky high. Before the league pass, however, the only team I could watch on TV all the time was the warriors so I have always followed them pretty closely.

    As to Babs' point, what was it exactly? Sort of a Bernie Sanders approach to NBA talent? Spread it equally! Everybody gets a trophy! I am for open labor markets even if it does mean that sometimes teams get a concentration of talent. (I am curious what a 'hyper' concentration of talent is. I am guessing it means when your most important player goes elsewhere, leaving you hyper about someone else's talent). It is sort of amusing that a fan of the Thunder complains about Durant leaving town as a free agent, given that the Thunder only exists in OKC because the team stiffed the city of Seattle. It happens. As a Jazz fan I know full well that the NBA labor markets dont favor small market teams. Life goes on.

    Yup. That’s exactly what I said.

    Let me know when you hear of anyone outside California advocating the new regime as a way to increase interest in the sport.

    I know you are a youngster, but you may not have noticed that this has always been the way of the league. Boston won 8 titles IN A ROW. Lebron's superteam efforts have done nothing but increase interest. Its just how it goes. You can either accept it or do what, exactly? COmplain because KD left town? To what end? The warriors are very, very good. ANd there is a lot of interest in other teams trying to beat them.

    After laying an egg in the first three quarters, Trae helped the Hawks come back from 26 points back to beat the Mavs. He looked positively average as a rookie today but stepped his game up when it mattered.

    yeah, it was a rough go for the first three quarters - Pierce has been letting him play through struggles for the most part early in the year, but the Hawks were better without him and Pierce let him sit for long stretches. but yeah, he was money as a ballhandler and FT maker down the stretch and helped them to the win. he's not as good a shooter as he showed in november and december last year so he will have those stretches where shots don't fall, but he's a wizard as a passer and he's a high bball iq guy, so i think he will be fine until he can improve the shooting over the next few years.
