I like it for the Rockets. They get someone to step into Capela's shoes (obviously he's 2 inches shorter than Capela).

- great rebounder (just like Capela)
- he can be the roll man in the pick n roll with Harden (just like Capela)
- he defends multiple positions (better than Capela in that regard)

Harden shoots and misses, Faried rebound passes to Harden, Harden shoots and misses, Faried rebound passes to Harden over and over again until Harden gets fouled. Cant wait

Per Shams, Nets are buying out Faried who will then join the Rockets at the vet minimum.

Was watching the Warriors-Clips game and Harris and SGA were killing it for the Clips.

To all you guys wanting the C's to trade Kyrie:

Harris + SGA + Jerome Robinson (#14 last June) + renounce protections on their pick this year for Kyrie + Bird + Yabu

Would you do it? :P

A true death lineup for the Warriors

Curry/Thompson/Durant/Green/Cousins. Five all-star players lol.
Best lineup in NBA history? (assuming Boogie returns to his old self)
In terms of individual talent, it’s definitley up there. In terms of would I back this lineup over any in NBA history - no

Celtics Talk / Re: Danny Ainge: “Quit being sensitive”
« Last post by RockinRyA on Today at 12:57:49 AM »
Not to harp on this but I keep thinking about it and it's halftime so...

How is "this guy got under my skin so I'm gonna make veiled gripes about him to the press" a more 'sensitive' reaction than "this guy got under my skin so I'm going to literally try to strangle him"? It just feels like the guys who got upset and started swinging were being waaaaaaay more sensitive than the guys who got upset and started taking vague verbal shots in interviews.

wait, who strangled who and when?

Dr J tried to choke Larry Bird because Bird was dominating him and kept telling him to retire. There's a pic of it if you scroll up a bit.

...I suppose Sprewell works too though.

Okay I thought there was an incident in today's team.

No people are contrasting "the good old days" with today's players who "are too sensitive", but the proof is somehow that the old school guys would just whale on each other when they got upset. I'm saying that seems like a much more sensitive reaction than what the modern players do.

This is an interesting take, suggesting that whooping up on someone who you have perceived to have been offended by is more 'sensitive' than simply crying about it to others.

Seems to me both are reactions rooted in some form of 'sensitivity'.  But if I had to choose a more effective option, yeah, I'm beating my enemy over the head with a stick rather than crying to my mom about it.

But those aren't the 2 responses that are being discussed. No player has cried to their mother over anything.

That we know of  ;D

Who knows if someone has said "Mommy, KG was mean to me"
