    Uhm...LaMarcus Aldridge may have looked semi washed on the Spurs, but he is a legit problem on the Nets. 9 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists at halftime? Yikes. He brings a completely different skill set than what they have already.

    11 points 6 boards 4 assists and pretty impressive rim protection. This guy is still a walking 18-8 player. You add Harden, Durant and Griffin to this team wow. Literally every player on this team can score from anywhere on the floor

    Back to back buckets. First the corner 3 and then he took a man down to the post to show he can still do that too.

    Harden, Dinwiddie, Durant, Griffin, Jordan were all out for the Nets today.

    That's a whole 60+ win starting 5 right there (mainly held back by Jordan).

    Video of LMA making them pay for the double. This is a legit problem for the league with Durant, Harden, and Kyrie on the floor.

    That dude has Greg Popa-V coaching ingrained in his play. Look for the open man if you don't have the perfect shot (after trying to get yourself a basket). It's pretty to watch when it works. (Unfortunately for pop fans it doesn't always work)

    LMA +22
    Claxton -4

    Thought LMA was washed already and Claxton was "point blank" better?

    I was wrong about LMA, I hadn't seen much of him lately and he's clearly got more left than I thought.

    DAJ is every bit as trash as I said he was tho lol.

    Yeah its def a problem regarding buyouts. Before only washed vets got buyouts but startibg last year with the Morris twins buyouts became better and better and now you have stars getting buyouts.

    But then again Im not sure how much the league can control it cuz these stars can always play like they suck until they dont.

    It depends on the talent around you. When you have what Brooklyn has in terms of shooting and playmaking, pretty much everything works. You have to make a decision and there aren't great ones.

    Just wait when Harden and LMA start doing PNR's together with Durant, Kyrie and Harris on the floor. It's going to be a layup or wide open shot for someone.

    This team is more loaded than GSW.I think LMA and BG are not as washed as some would say.

    Harris KD LMA Kyrie Harden is a pretty unstoppable lineup. All 5 guys can shoot. Harris is having one of the greatest 3 point shooting seasons ever. Harden, KD, nor kyrie have to play great for this team to win. Even without KD this team likely will get to the finals.

    small sample size, but agreed. That was Claxton’s worse game this season under my eye test. One thing is clear: he depends on Harden offensively in a way LMA does not (if LMA can do last night consistently).

    To be fair...Charlotte being the 4th seed at around 500 is the real joke.

    Absolutely. If Pop or Pop's system has talent and a few shooters (they have that in spades), it will work. Defense is Brooklyn's only concern.
