If Wendell keeps up his 2 blocks per game, he’ll be the only teenager to average at least 2 a game for a season. Pretty impressive stuff.

Spencer Dinwiddie got paid after going off for 39 off the bench. Glad he got his money. Just another example of how inept this team is. We kept piece of shit Isiah Cannon when anyone with half a brain knew Dinwiddie was clearly superior.

So a agreed upon trade fell apart over confusion of which Brooks they were trading/getting. Suns thought they were getting Dillon Brooks but Memphis thought they were trading MarShon Brooks. I swear this world is too much.

The Warriors are in some trouble. Klay has been struggling, and defenses just don't worry about Draymond anymore.

The Lakers exposed many of the Warriors' current weaknesses: Klay's tendency to disappear in "big moments", lack of interior defense (who the heck is Zubac and why is he dropping 20/10 on the Warriors?), Draymond's inability to shoot, and list goes on.

That said, the Warriors can easily solve most of those things and it was a night where their shooting was abnormally off. Their defense was also either abnormally poor or the Lakers were shooting abnormally well. Cousins also is a big variable. Warriors have already shown themselves to be far from infallible so if a team can exploit them just enough times, they could very well fall in the playoffs. I wouldn't count on it, but it is possible.

Cousins is going to stop the Zubac's of the world.

So if Davis gets traded to the Lake show, is he another player that never seriously considered the Bulls?

Early all-star returns has Derrick Rose at #2 among guards in the West.

3rd most votes in the west overall. Crazy.

I just can’t understand why certain people and ESPN keep trying to push Harden as arguably the greatest offensive player ever. He’s clearly not even the best offensive player of this era.

I stopped paying attention to ESPN a long time ago.

If this is true, and they think Harden is the best offensive player in the league, then LOL.

A few days old news at this point, but Cousins is coming back on the 18th supposedly. We'll finally get to see the splash cousin in action and see if that blows up in their face or not.

It'll help them defensively more than offensively, imo.

Only way it hurts them is if he tries to do his dribble around game, but I highly doubt they will let that happen. When he was with the Pels, he had this great ability to go one on one at the end of games and try to have handles like Kyrie. He would then bounce the ball off his foot or knee 80% of the time.
