    Last time he played with someone that played like an all-star in the playoffs. Hint, hamstring.

    after one game with Durant you think they are destined for a ring? With how hard it was for them to put away the magic? Really?
    I think with kyrie back they are one of the favorites to come out of the east, but their defense is terrible and they have no big men. How are they going to stop Embiid if they face him?
    They will do fine, but im not sure what to expect out of them yet. Lets give them time to mesh up and show up on the big games before crowning them.

    so you say people shouldn't make conclusions after 1 game by making conclusions after 1 game?

    Harden, KD, Irving pretty much can't afford an injury at anytime in the playoffs and have to be playing their A game. Their supporting cast is pretty mediocre so it's going to be all on them. They have a good chance to get buy out guys though

    He is, and he is terrible at this stage on his career, even got a dnp the other day. Allen was their best big and he is gone, so we will have to wait to see what they can get out of the buyout market, as they dont have a lot left to trade.

    if you think wait and see is a conclusion, you must be a very special cookie.

    To the people who are actually watching him, foul baiting and free throws are really a big part of his game. To be fair, it is within the rules though.

    you are really slow mate.
    What did i said that made you think i use a small sample size for anything? I said, lets wait and see. We know they are a good offensive team, no matter what, because of durant, harden and kyrie, if he ever comes back. We know they are not good at D, as they dont have any plus defender.

    ...he made the finals as a 6th man from the bench and played not that well against the Heat. Sacrificing a lot which finally led him to Houston to be an alpha.

    Now, it is a different ballgame completely.

    Let‘s wait and see.

    Because Wood isn’t even a quarter of the player KD is.

    If Durant and Jordan can stay healthy, the Nets are going to be scary. It will be interesting to see how Kyrie reacts to being the third best player on the team. There is not sure thing . . .

    Asking to be traded would be very in character for Kyrie.

    I cannot speak to all of the NBA, all 32 teams (plus their alternate announcers) but Sean Elliot is the single worst most unlistenable, brings-nothing-to-the-table announcer in all of televised sports. This includes golf and car racing and hockey, which I don't even watch.
