    Could have been a GOAT if he wasn't soft as hell, go back 4 years and his resume was so f***ING insane for his age in the modern era.

    But you know when Hakeem trains you and you still can't develop a post game you're completely f***ed

    IMO, he had/has no passion, no real drive, no determination to be the greatest he can be. Waste of potential.

    Just got into basketball recently because my friend convinced me. I mostly enjoyed OKC games so I was supporting them against GSW but since they lost, I was rooting for Lebron and the Cavs in the finals. Honestly I feel like OKC could have won but a combination of chokes combined with unluckiness costed them. Durant choked game 6 whilst Klay went for a career high 41 points and whatnot. But I definitely want to see Durant, Westbrook, Kanter, Adems etc come back stronger and win it next year.

    Also still trying to get to grips with the rules of the NBA

    Aww thanks man appreciated <3 Its a fairly fun game to watch though so it'd be a good idea to get to grips with it. Even when something basic like a foul happens I'm not properly sure what sort of foul or even why

    Yeah I always loved basketball when I was a teenager, played it all the time at the park but I only knew about fouls.

    Main thing is just shot clock violation, 3 second rule(if an attacker or defender stays in paint for three seconds) and you get stuff like technical's and flagrants that are just usually bad fouls or just breaking the rules(e.g. coach stepping on the court when there's no timeout)

    KD, Bosh, Whiteside and Wade...damn that would be a lethal combo. Hoping Bosh comes back healthy this year.

    Heat could give the Cavs a good series in the ECF if Bosh is healthy regardless of any trades imo

    I agree, I forgot about Bosh lol. Also throw in Joe Johnson you already got 4 prolific scorers.

    If Howard joins them they're 100% making the playoffs. People say Howard is a lockroom cancer but that's only when there are egos in the locker room. Lakers and Houston are full of them. Knicks might be a bit with Melo, don't know much about his personality but Rose is as MELLOW :ahee:, as you could possibly want.
