    Russ will never join LA bro you guys need to rebuild and he's in his prime. Your best hope rests with Ingram growing into a monster!


    Don't watch fam Ingram will be a poor man's KD, which I'd be happy with.

    Nah mate, I think there's another team that stripped you and OKC of the title of being ultimate chokers *cough* Golden State *cough*

    Always heard good things but this is the first time I've seen anything of him. 11 years old and he'd probably break my ankles :embarrassed:

    I'd put Bulls over Bucks. Have Rockets made any moves since losing Dwight? If Harden alone can get them to playoffs he's back in the MVP race. Dwight is a shadow of his former self (understatement) but he still averages a double double.

    Bulls have horrible spacing with only Mirotic being able to shoot a 3 consistentley, plus Wade was dreadful in the normal season. With Parker having had a full season, i think he'll push on plus point Giannis will also get alot better.

    Rockets signed Gordon and Anderson, plus they were apparently better defensively when dwight was off the floor. I think Capella will be a monster on defence.

    I wouldn't call 19 PPG on 46% shooting over 70+ games dreadful. Obviously Dwyane's declining, but those numbers are still better than most in the league.

    Heat were actually better with him off the floor, their defence rating was better

    I'm personally a Golden State Warriors fan, I've been watching Steph since about 2011, and the guy is literally tearing up the league, I don't think I've ever witnessed a better 3pt shooter than him.
    But I have to say he's got some serious competition, and the main person I had in mind is LeBron James of the Cavs
