    Would you prefer the word decorum?

    It could be great or it could be a disaster, I know from experience shoulder injuries never leave you quite the same. Much less a full dislocation. But if everyone gels and is healthy LeBron and co might finally have a challenge. And more importantly we might actually get an interesting ECF! Dare to hope... Noah isn't a guy that needs to ball so it's perfect. Him and Porzingis could be a beastly duo.

    Also fantasy draft? As mod I leave it to you Also I'm lazy
    Decorum, class, whatever synonym. I've only ever seen it made such a massive deal of in American sports. No wonder fans get so offended by crowds chanting 'refs suck' or something similar. Clearly they've never heard football chants over here (Where no one mentions class at all).

    As for fantasy draft, maybe. Gotta look into how to set it up, should be simple enough though.

    Of course she won't, she's Steph's wife. Nothing to do with 'class' (A concept I never understand why Americans or basketball fans seems obsessed about).

    Noah to Knicks is pretty much done I believe, Knicks building a nice little team there.
    ??? Ok...?

    My point is she shouldn't be complaining because obviously she wouldn't if the tables were turned. I'm not 'obsessed' about it, just wanted to point it out because it's amusing.

    Yeah man for real. I'm so happy we drafted Ingram he's the player I wanted more than anyone.

    I'm praying for Kevin Durant even though I doubt we have any shot in hell of getting him. But if he comes to LA... Omg....

    She has every right to complain. Being in the public eye I'm sure she's used to folks like people here constantly getting worked up over her tweets

    And people have every right to say whatever the hell they want to (so long as it's legal). It's the internet ffs.

    Can you tell me, in all objectivity, that you would feel the exact same way if Cleveland lost and it was LeBron's wife making these comments? Perhaps, but a lot of GSW fans and/or LBJ haters sure as hell wouldn't.

    I agree, but to make out as if it's something about 'being classy' is dumb.

    If you want my honest opinion, I literally don't care what players wives or friends are tweeting. Players sure, but stuff like Ayesha tweeting about the NBA being rigged (Which is stupid enough for obvious reasons) doesn't matter to me. So if Lebron's wife wants to do it, she can go ahead.

    And yeah you're right, loads of Dubs fans would do the same had Cavs lost/Lebron's wife posted something dumb. But then as I've said, I don't understand the fascination with it.

    Don't worry. I've heard there'll be plenty of talent available in the lottery for the next few years so you'll be in prime position to pick them up

    I hope so. And I expect D'Angelo to eventually grow into a big-time player.

    Pretty much confirmed now from Durants inside camp he's resigning with OKC. No surprises there. Best scenario for neutrals. Knicks never really stood a chance.
