How are the Rockets 30-9, it defies logic.

Houston has a better record than 28-8 Cleveland and only 2 less wins than Golden State.

What in the world?

Joel Embiid with the Triple H entrance, hilarious. https://mobile.twitter.com/Sixers/statu ... 2861305856

Ya know, the all star game is just for kicks and all, but theres a guy averaging 30.6 PPG 10.6 RPG 10.4 APG not in the starting lineup. :hmm:

Also getting sick of the NBA national tv schedule. Wednesday the Rockets and the Warriors were on in separate games. Tonight, guess what???? Warriors vs the Rockets! :taunt: I've had enough

Over saturation of the same 5-6 teams makes me not care and ultimately not watch cause hey I already seen it and Im sure Im not alone. The spectacle of watching a great team doesnt mean anything when I see their games and the same matchups every week. I know this is coming from a hardcore fans perspective but I think this would apply to anyone who watches. The NBA is filled with great players and they should be out there creating stars by putting them on TV, not burying them in favor of the same games all the time.

In spite of that a player like Giannis made the all star starters despite having like 2 TV games so far this year with probably only one more on the horizon. :thumbsup:

Russ not being a starter is insane, and the fans did actually vote for him in large abundances.

That being said with the player & media vote having a percentage influence in the All-Star starter voting results, it could be that Russ has "rubbed the wrong way" a good number of people in the media as well as a good number of his fellow NBA players to actually knock him out of the running as an All-Star starter.

That's the give-or-take of the new All-Star voting rules, it prevents the NBA to have undeserving scrubs like Zaza Pachulia voted in as starters by the fans............but in return, NBA players & media people can use their influence to knock out players that may or may not have rubbed them the wrong way.

Edit: Scratch that, I was wrong. It was the fucking fans that prevent Westbrook from being the All-Star starter in the West, and it is because of the "dick-riding fest" of Curry & Harden (not that those 2 didn't deserve their votes either). Both the players and media voted Westbrook as the #1 guard in the Western Conference, while the fans voted him 3rd.

Yeah, fuck the fans LOL

Good to see Jimmy Butler and Giannis and Isaiah Thomas and Embiid make the All-Star team. I love to see the injection of new blood into the game, especially in the Eastern Conference. Soon, Porzingis will be on that list. https://www.google.com/amp/syndication. ... s.amp.html

Honestly, Curry and Harden deserve to be starters before Westbrook. I like Westbrook, but as a fan, if I had to choose between those 3 players as starters: I'd choose Curry and Harden, although you can't go wrong with either. I consider Harden to be the league MVP, thus far. (And Curry won it last season and has gone to consecutive Finals.)

Lastly, mad props to DeRozan and Lowry, I've seen the forum downgrade their talents during the playoffs but those guys have placed the Raptors on the map.

Check out this video https://mobile.twitter.com/NBA_Skits/st ... 53/video/1

Westbrook almost posterized Gobert, but got caught on the rim.

At the same time, Gobert had the audacity to wag his finger like he actually blocked the shot. His hand NEVER touched the ball, though. Hilarious.

So the Sixers just beat the Clippers.....................yep, you read that right. The Sixers rise to redemption has continued, and the Clippers are the latest victim in their redemption trail.

Hilarious and agreed. That's the first thing that came to my mind, the Amare fire extinguisher incident. I never forgave him for that act, especially during the playoffs.

Good read.

When Cousins' contract is up in Sacramento, he'd do a disservice to his talent if he resigned with the organization. Believe it or not, I could see DeMarcus in a Celtic uniform.

But, back to the article and your comments, I believe Sixers and Celtics will eat good in a few years. Hopefully, New York joins them.
