They aren't going to "coexist" a decent center onto the team, or a back up one for that matter.

Why are the warriors in the game down 22 with 8 minutes left. Are they really trying to find like hell to lose by 8? I feel like Kerr would have learned something last year. I'll admit I'll eat this
Post if they score 5 3s in a row, but mathematically it makes no sense in a long season

Edit I mean stars and I'll add there has already been
Some pretty hard fouls

You are an extremely quality poster, but instead you spend your time making very outrageous statements, and then acting offended when people call you on them and are proven false


You can't make an outrageous statement at the same time as you are calling him out for making one.

I should have said he can be.

My point is that he is a smart dude, and can contribute quality  material to this board, and has done so.

For whatever reason, he chooses to play extreme Devils advocate, almost all the time, and then not own up to the extremism of many of his posts.

This sounds like the 2010-2011 Heat when they first started off.

Actually, the newly formed Heat Big 3 put up a very respectable fight against the C's in their first game, though they still ultimately lost to us.

I specifically stated on here several months ago that I think they'll have a similar, though perhaps even more exaggerated, warm-up process as the Heat in 2010-2011. They'll win a lot of games still, which I put them around 60, but they're not going to dominate from day one like many on here thought they would. And it's actually looking more and more like they have some pretty significant holes to fill.

It has been a distinct pleasure getting to watch Kawhi Leonard gradually become awesome.


He's got a real shot at MVP + DPOY this year.

It's called trolling.  He has an Andy Kaufman avatar for a reason. 

It's all very on the nose.  Know what you are dealing with.

I never thought he could be this good offensively.  Credit to him.  Really impressive.

I'm not saying they won't win a 10 of games but this interior defense is mind blowingly bad by the Warriors.

Just another Pop project.

They churn one out every year or two.

I agree.

He is probably my favorite non Celtic in the league.

He has the attitude of a Celtics.

Credit to him and how much he has put into this game.

I watched Rodney Hood quite a bit at Duke, and I never would have ever thought he would be as good as he is today. And he's only gonna get better. Crazy.
I could very well see the Hawks... starting Taurean Prince at the 3, who is already better than Crowder, imo.

you vs. the guy she tells you not to worry about
