He appears to be getting healthier
With the trade deadline coming up, *if* the Warriors trade Wiseman and Moody (disclaimer: not advocating), they'll still need a center who fits their system to split time with Loon. Haven't watched enough Minny ball, but based on recent games against them, Naz Reid could be a good long-term answer - athletic, defends, rebounds, finishes inside, hits the occasional 3. He could probably crack the rotation and provide insurance as a big. https://twitter.com/NBA/status/1619530004156776448?
He's looking for 10M / year in an extension, less than Wise would make next year.
Of course, it would have to be a 3-team trade or separate trades, as the Wolves already have KAT and Gobert, and don't want to pay 10+M to a third center. I think they are looking for Wings.
So Moody to Minny for Reid, who only makes 2M this year, + a min contract like Bryn Forbes? Too much? Too little? Wiseman would have to go for an expiring or to a team under the cap for maybe a future pick, or be kept until after the season.
Cam Thomas though.. I can root for the nets once they trade away KD
I'm glad the Warriors blew out the Thunder last night so that OKC could rest their starters and save their energy for tonight's win against the Lakers.
The E1P celebration audits have a competitor in this epic anti-celebration audit:
Watching Isaiah Joe, I know Philly fans are sick they waived him at the start of the season. He has made a leap in efficiency, 46% from the field and 45 % from three. Good on OKC picking him right on up.
Warriors won when Curry broke the three point record last season. As for the Lakers, it felt like everyone except Westbrook gave up in the 4th quarter after Lebron broke the scoring record.
OK so I saw a list of the all-time holders of the record of most careers points in the NBA. Joe Fulks is first, 1946-1952. My question is, how did that work? Did they stop the game every time he hit a bucket? Did they have to start from his very first bucket ever? When George Mikan eventually overtook him, did they stop the game and have Fulks come out? When Dolph Schayes broke it next, did Mikan have to come out for that, AND Fulks came out? Is it all living previous record holders who come out, or just the most recent one? And when Kuminga gets it, will LeBron have to be there?
Now Kareem is getting a nice chance to talk :)
Another night, another irrelevant NBA spectacle. The real game happens tomorrow. Me a fanboy?
Good night y’all.
Lakers shot the ball 57.6%, made 14/31 threes, and made 18/26 FTs, but they had 21 turnovers. Thunder shot the ball 52.1%, made 17/34 threes, and made 18/20 FTs. They had 13 turnovers.
Wonder how much LeBron cares they lost vs setting the record.
Thunder beat the Lakers 133-130.
Once curry set the 3 pt record, he went into a slump. understandabe with how much emotion goes into that moment that the following games probably just lack the intensity record setting games do.
I wonder if the Lakers hit the skids now for similar reasons.
Thunder tryin to choke this away
This was always going to be the price to pay for Lebron to break the record.
Absolutely love the wet fart goin on here with LeBron breaking the scoring record.
