Magic Johnson is the NBA's version of John Elway. Both signed an All-Time player at the tail end of his career and then proceeded to make exactly zero good moves. Of course, Elway actually won the Super Bowl whereas Magic can only smile while the shame of self-doubt slowly engulfs him.

A Rockets/Warriors series would be fantastic honestly. I would like it if GSW had to play OKC and Houston on their way to the finals. Doubt it happens that way though.

For sure. Though, the Warriors did a tremendous job on him in last years series as well.

You can't. But that's our reigning MVP. Thank you very much.

You think this is beautiful basketball? Its on the same level as this, and it s disgrace.

It's not at that level at all. And no I don't think that particular play is beautiful.

But the way Harden uses his brain as well as his skills to dissect the game and the rule book to gain a competitive advantage while destroying every single defender 1on1 is sexy.

He breaks the rules on every play, they just let him get away with it.

The biggest mistake by Ainge and Stevens this season is keeping Morris on the roster...

Fuck him

wait, why?

he's been solid as hell this season
To the detriment of the overall team his stats look Ight, but he stunts the growth of Brown tremendously. You can tell how much of Browns confidence has been affected by Morris. It’s night and day how Brown is now and than. Heyward hasn’t had a fair hand at getting back to a decent level because of the clog Morris creates.

If they got rid of Morris you allow 2 players to blossom as opposed to one player giving you empty production.

Also I strongly believe Stevens is literally petrified at confronting Morris.

sounds like this is actually a good thing for brown. if getting 5 minutes less per game and seeing a role player play well is all it takes to stunt his growth and affect his confidence it sounds like something he needs to work on. that's some small baller shit

also how has hayward not had a fair hand at getting back? wasn't he starting pretty much every game to start the season?

Your right about Brown having a small baller mentality.

*Looks at how BI handles pressure*

But Morris isn’t good enough to abandon the growth of Heyward and Brown.

Both Brown and Heyward legit need reps. Brown needs it because his ceiling is way too high to give up for a guy like Morris. Maybe if it was anyone else, but not for someone who strikes fear in the coaches heart.

As for Heyward he’s far more selfless than Morris and selflessness was the key component as to why Boston was good last year. Morris is a huge “ME” guy with a team already stuck with Kyrie.

One of those type of guys are good but having 2 of those guys when one is delusional about it is toxic.

Overall the point I’m trying to make is that the team is staggering it’s overall potential to please one player. If this team does not go to the ECF it’ll be the biggest disappointment this season based on general pre-season expectations.

hayward was getting reps tho. he was in the starting unit for probably longer than he should have been. his injury is gonna take a while to get back from and most figured next season would be the one where he'd get back to form. just how it goes. look at pg13. also you said hayward is more selfless than morris and that was a key component to why boston was so good last season.....but hayward was out for the entirety of the season not morris who you claim is a huge "ME" guy. you're not making a lot of sense here tbh

Start of the season he playing way over his head and has sucked for over a month. Rozier has sucked most of the year.
sure but I was really just saying that putting brown's regression on morris is pretty dumb. even if that were the case, which in all likelihood it's not, that'd be on brown for getting shook by a role player playing solid basketball.

Regardless Brown and Hayward's minutes should be going up and Morris should be like 20 a game unless he's hot. He's absolutely pathetic on D and becomes just another if he's not scoring he's useless NBA player. He was like top ten in offensive rating as starter for like over a month stretch. Law of averages. He's now back to Black hole Morris.

Wasn't Morris originally just picked up because they needed to clear Bradley's money to max Hayward? I doubt they have a ton invested in him organizationally.

As a 2K enthusiast, just purchased Live 19. It's pretty solid.
Live 18 was very fun, but they had bugs on launch they never fixed, so I said I wouldn't get 19 until it was $5-10. I also hate how your draft spot will screw up the real rosters, and they didn't update The One roster very well. Think I read they do it the same way in 19.
Again, was fun. My wing shooter was like in the zone Klay every game. No damn VC to screw with.

When I say Heyward is more selfless I mean in terms of play style. Does that make sense or no?

When Boston was successful last season wasn’t selflessness a big part of it?

Morris is shit when he can’t score. I rather watch more Heyward than watching black void Morris absorb minutes from larger investments.

He’s literal ass now. So I’m confused why you believe he makes the team better by absorbing all the SF mins?

You can ask any Celtics fan right now that they rather see Jaylen in that starting role right now than no defense Morris. There’s a reason why Boston fans aren’t disagreeing with me right now...

LeBron having a 40.6% 3PT season is pretty wild. I feel like 2012-2013 LeBron was like, peak traditional basketball.

Curry in 2015-2016 was basically a revolution in the game. LeBron probably gets it for his defence though because he still actually tried back then.
