    I personally like how Silver warned the fuck outta Chicago regarding Valentine and Lopez, so they basically played them both the entire 1st quarter of the previous game, and then benched their asses for the remainder.

    Now that is operating under pressure

    At least Marc Cuban actually has the balls to get a hammer and break Wes Matthew's leg to keep him out.

    Chicago and Atlanta are just faking at this tank shit.

    So the new target of my childish schadenfruede is watching San Antonio get fucking destroyed.

    I might just throw a party if they miss the playoffs this year and we can finally stop the jerkoff parade that has been going on for 20 years.

    But I don't know what to do in the case that Rukia's prediction of the Spurs' downfall is correct this year. Its like a yearly tradition:catcry

    I predicted the Lakers would win 40 and I was laughed out of the building. They're 30-36 right now, 21-23 with Lonzo (39 win pace). Let this be a lesson to all the little boys and little girls out there. You too can achieve your dreams. Don't let bullies silence you. Let freedom ring from the mountain tops. Let the truth shine down on the desolate swamp of injustice. Amen.

    Seriously, when @Rukia gets into a creative rhythm with his colour trolling commentary, he is fucking untouchable. I still laugh at how seriously people in the Cafe believe him to be, and how enraged they get.

    The cafe has about as much interesting discourse in it as a Jerry Springer marathon.

    Yeah he has been unreal, but his coach runs some of the best sets for any team in the NBA, and he has a squad. Jrue and Moore are pretty good, but our team still has no consistent blue print to win a game other than hope AD pops off on both ends. This season more than ever has been a shitting on net ratings and RPM being good stats.

    This isn't even Portland's final form btw. I look for them to peak as a legit elite team either next season or the one after (barring a collapse). They've been fluctuating offensively and defensively season to season.

    Since removing Aldridge:

    2016: 6th ORTG 20th DRTG
    2017: 11th ORTG 24th DRTG
    2018: 13th ORTG 6th DRTG

    As the Cavs are finding out, simply being an elite scoring team isn't enough to win games. You have to stop your opponent from scoring. Portland has surprisingly clamped down defensively. Offensively they have the core to get back in the top 10 or even top 5 range. If they do that while staying strong defensively they'll be looking at 55-60 win seasons.

    They need one more consistent wing. Their defense and scheme has really helped this year. Their offense started off extremely slow but has kept picking up.

    Lillard also reached that pace control level where it feels like he knows exactly where to be and what shots to get late in games. Just completely calm and dominant.

    AD is a singular talent with just the physicality to reach another level of dominance but the way Lillard does it with purely skill, understanding angles and subtle steps is brilliant to watch.

    Also makes me wish that Curry and Durant were on different teams so that we could see them need to elevate themselves to that extra level (like both did in 2015-16, Curry in the RS and Durant in the playoffs)

    That's the thing about basketball which I love, transcendent talent going all out and pulling their team to victory. And that talent having to go above and beyond what we thought was possible.

    Damian Lillard is one of the quickest dudes in the league with a crazy first step, some of it is athleticism. AD is also a skill player.
