    Not exactly, no. (And I'll give you LeBron, even though he was, technically, traded.)

    I think the point itself is substantially wrong. Superstars aren't traded under normal circumstances,...

    100% agree. I was trying to focus on him and DeMar's offense, so I didn't mention the rebounding, but it absolutely has made a big difference. (Although for my fantasy team's sake I'd like him to...

    Overall, I found both their performances encouraging. Gay's shooting a low percentage right now, but if he keeps up this shot selection--where the majority of his shots are around the rim or from...

    If you were a little more self-aware and a little less arrogant, you might consider the possibility that you're forcing narratives on team performance that have alternate explanations.

    Pretty good night for both our guys against the Bucks. Rudy was 0-4 from mid-range, and three of them were highly questionable, but he also managed 10 shots in the paint and 10 free throw attempts....

    Jesus Christ, that has to be the most condescending, intellectually bankrupt response possible. I watch a ton of basketball, thank you very much.

    The hidden assumption here is that these things would be better with another coach. Most of the outcomes in a basketball game are determined by the players, not the coach. But we as fans like and...

    I just don't think it's a very easy task to judge a coach. I mean, what are the criteria? I think it's kind of contradictory to think, at the same time:

    1. Coaching is a difficult, skilled task...

    And that, incidentally, is why fans love to blame the coach, and why they're generally wrong when they do it.

    "Star calls don't exist" isn't a well-enough defined statement to agree with or argue against. Here's what I will say, though: NBA referees do not have a systematic bias in favour of (or against)...

    Ask a Bucks fan how their last season went, waiting for two very similar, inefficient, jump-shooting players to get on the same page at the same time.

    Atlanta's got no reason to do that--they've already got a starting PG, Schröder's already a very capable backup, and he's on a super-cheap contract for the next 4 years. Why would they want less than...

    Today's mid-range jumper watch: Rudy 1 for 7, DeMar was on fire, and made 8 of 12. I'm not gonna complain about Rudy's shot selection too much even though he shot 6-23 overall; he got into the paint...

    I'd love to see 1 on 1 at the all-star game, but I don't think any events could be added by 2016--the all-star events are listed in the CBA. Any additions would have to be negotiated in the next one...

    Nah, man. That's way overblown. Durant earns most of the calls he gets, and NBA refs are generally pretty fair. Fans of every team in the league think the refs are biased against them--that tells you...

    The vegas line has settled at ATL -3, and 3 points is the standard home court advantage. So, for this game at least, the bookmakers seem to think we're about equal to the Hawks in terms of overall...

    Just did a double-take. Am I missing some sarcasm here? If not, you obviously haven't watched Boogie beyond the highlight reels. He's an awful, awful defender.

    KD earned 24 free throw attempts, and he made 22 of them. DeMar was 0-2 and Rudy was 2-3 from the stripe.

    The Rudy & DeMar mid-range jumper watch

    Damn, what happened to the DeMar we saw in preseason? I want that guy back!

    6-19 last night, including 2-10 on mid-range jump shots, with only 1 trip to the free throw line. Just brutal.
