I love Jimmy and love Jimmy on the Heat, but he always seemed like such a good fit for “Philly sports” and I never understood that decision by the sixies. With a couple years in the rear view and this maintained love between Embid and Butler I feel sort of horrible for Philly fans, what a knife twist

in black and white, ben was already extended and hes a decade younger.
They were fools to max harris, fools to extend simmons, fools to sign glen rivers.

I wouldnt be surprised at all to see joel request a trade.

lmao this is why they didnt want it out. You get a bone bruise from colliding with someone. (closing out on Klay) Not from a defender accidentally grabbing your knee.

The bone bruise is a compression injury not side impact. When he pulled the knee he compressed the knee together causing the bruise. It's super weird, but that's actually what happened.

Are the grizzlies the moneyball Oakland A’s of the nba? If so I am rooting for them
They really are. They've managed to pick up 11ty billion draft picks through trades, acquiring injured players and rehabbing them. They've also drastically improved their mid tier and even elite players.

I don't know who it is there, but hey got a neckbeard with a calculator running around somewhere.

Ok 40 point game without Ja. Maybe Ja is the issue here
Most of their players play fractionally better without Ja on the floor, but not 40 points better. This game was Stephen Adams. With him on the floor they get 11ty billion offensive rebounds and at times have 3 giant ass dudes on the floor.

Drastically more second chance shots. Combine this with the fact that Memphis is aggressive as fuck on generating turnovers and Warriors generally run high turnovers normally.

When they start to get going and shoot well, it just snowballs into dudes raining 3s. Bane's back has been destroyed the past week, and I'd argue he is actually their best player. As he gets better it will just ramp up.

This is how you get your pussy smashed into oblivion. Warriors just aren't a good match-up against them with Adams.

Unless warriors shoot really high percentages and curry scores 30+ points by shooting deep 3s (possible), they will lose these next two games.

It's also possible a key player gets pink eye and everything falls apart for either team.

“Obviously, without looking at the MRI, we can't 100 percent know for sure”

I’ll go with the guy that looked at the actual mri, treats ja daily, and is the first one in history to grow new cartilage in a player’s knee.

Bucks have the ugliest offense in the league right now. Not having Middleton makes is so hard to watch.

Kobe wishes he could shoot this well from 3 in an elimination game

Kawhi is this generation's Kobe, when he's not injured
