Harden or Westbrook dribbling around the perimeter for 20 seconds before making a move doesn't thrill you?
Nah, I'm more of a "Lets do nothing but chuck 3pt shots" fan. Dear god, I hope this team gets spanked in the playoffs.

agreed.  ugly style of basketball.  if Harden didn't enjoy a loving whistle from the officials every game and he had to actually follow the rules of the game (his palming and the blatant initiating of contact to draw fouls which should really be offensive) they'd have to change their style.

God, I would hate to be a Rockets fan. This is one ugly and not enjoyable style of basketball.

I for one completely disagree with this.

You enjoy this style of basketball of nothing but isolation and chucking from beyond the arc?
Whatever crushes individuality is despotism, by whatever name it may be called and whether it professes to be enforcing the will of God or the injunctions of men.

I was made aware by others that today I posted my 40,000th post.

In celebration, every post in this thread gets a TP from me.

Let's go Celtics ☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️

EDIT: Except my posts, of course.

Just seeing this now. Congrats, nick - you've certainly had a long run around these parts!  ;D

I'd love him to abuse them in the post

It's sad, because I like guys like Covington but I don't know that they're properly used here

I edited my comment to reflect why I like them. Or at least dont hate them.

Well not if calls like that happen. Embiid does that and he usually gets an and-1

Yes! Jim Jackson again. Looking forward to his broadcast again. He was good last time.

My thought when I saw him, too. Just saw Ian Eagle doing the last game (play-by-play) so maybe TNT is getting their act together.
