That is some pretty amazing defense.

GSW should trade DG for Jimmy and win another championship. The Heat should laugh in their face if they tried.

Love Jimmy and love the Dubs, but thats stylistically not a fit at all.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you play effen defense!

The chest to chest but leaning back to not make arm contact on the contest was masterful

Jimmy's defense on the potential game winner from Booker

That is a thing of beauty right there. Perfect body control
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

So 15 games into the season, is appears the Bulls are on their way to a solid .500 record. They hit their ceiling last year and are just getting older and worse. They need to dump this roster and do a complete rebuild. They have some decent assets but they can't wait too long as they diminish in value.

I found this stat after last night's Bucks game was remarkable: 53-8: Bucks record in the Central Division since Budenholzer took over as head coach in 2018-19.

I thought it was a really bad look by Giannis after the game last night…until I heard the story. Damn Montrezl Harrell (and the 6ers assistant coach) is a douche.

Very strange story.  Giannis' shot looks completely messed up to me. 8 for 26 from the line the last two games?  It's obviously all mental, he used to shoot 70%
This incident could motivate Giannis even more? .

Wizards with a 107-106 overtime win over the Heat last night. Couldn't help but notice that Jamal Cain had 4 points, 6 rebs, and 1asst in17 minutes of play, while Johnny Davis remains relegated to the G-League by the Wizards.

Before anyone cautions me not to read too much into that situation, I'm not reading anything into anything. I'm merely noting that a kid who sometimes had difficulty getting off the bench at MU, persisted and worked hard, and is now getting a good look in the NBA, while Mr. Everything lottery pick at UW, can't even stay on the big league roster.

Congrats to Jamal! I hope he gets a long run with the Heat.

Me no care about any ex-Rodent.

Everyone (lol) is jumping on the WhiteTrash bandwagon! Here is the second article this week I've seen about the Bulls needing to "blow it up" and start over:

That was quite a meltdown by the Lakers last night to lose at home up 17 in the 4th Q.

19 games in the Lakers are who we thought they are. 9-10 seed in the West and no assets to use to get better. LBJ is focused on post basketball issues and wins/losses don't matter. LA was a great landing spot for the end.

It's going to be a long 4-5 years for the Lakers.

Its incredible.  Save for the bubble championship, the Lebron Lakers experiment has been an absolute, undeniable dumpster fire that has now set the franchise back years going forward.  Its not all Lebron, of course, Pelinka has been equally terrible.

I'm not going on about asterisk championships or whatever, but its the Lakers, not someone like Atlanta or OKC getting their first title.  Can't be very satisfying when you look at the last few years and go forward with the Laker fan mentality.

Franchises spend decades looking for one title.

The Suns, Jazz, Pacers, Clippers, Nets and others have had long stretches of high-caliber play without ever winning a single championship. The Bulls had their dynasty, but it's been nearly 25 years and they might never win another. In 2020, the Bucks had gone almost 50 years since winning their lone title. Any of them would have killed to have that bubble championship.

The Lakers don't win it without LeBron - period. And despite what's happened since, Forbes still rates the Lakers as the 10th-most valuable sports franchise in the world.

I get what people are saying, but almost every other franchise in the NBA would accept that kind of dumpster fire.

I said at the beginning of the year I would take Tatum #2 behind Giannis if was a GM.  Nothing has really changed my mind through 1/4 of the season.

Not sure that is true, and zero way to prove one way or the other.

I'd also argue if it wasn't for the bubble and the unusual end to that season, there was no way they win a championship...period.

Speaking of "zero way to prove."

Sorry, my friend, but you are so biased against LeBron that you can't possibly be objective on this subject.

Bucks vs. Hornets last night in Charlotte.

Bucks rested Giannis, Holiday and Middleton. Hornets were without injured Ball and Hayward.

Tickets, concessions and parking were full-price.
