Mellow Yellow

Mello might still can shoot the rock but everyone saw how the Knicks went down. Arguably he didn't really fit well with OKC. Not he's just a pass around the league player because of lack of defense.

RE: 2018-19 NBA Thread
Yeah, Melo can still help a team with his scoring, though his defense will really be a liability in the playoffs, which is why the Thunder left him on the bench so much in the playoffs. In the playoffs, when you focus on one opponent for a series instead of a different team every game, it's much easier to work on finding the opponent's weakest link on defense and attacking that player over and over.

Interesting that they are going with the white for the retro jersey.

Personally, I am cool with my retro teal ones I already have.

As if the NBA didn't have the vibe of already being rigged somewhat... now they are partnering with the casinos.

Still 10 more weeks until the regular season starts... the NBA has given us some solid reasons to go into the other room and watch games on Christmas day while relatives are in the other room arguing about which of them has a nicer house or is more popular.

Bucks-Knicks
76ers-Celtics
Thunder-Rockets
Lakers-Warriors
Jazz-Blazers

Interesting.... I know the NBA likes to start Christmas day .... and make it akin to the NFL on Thanksgiving Day..... but I have never really watched the NBA on Christmas--even when I was more into the NBA regular season games back in the day.

I did enjoy the NFL on Thanksgiving and watch it "more" but two things kind of hurt me on that one later on..... work..... retail and the TDAT... can't stay up late to watch the games and two, ALWAYS seeing the Cowboys and the Lions no matter what. I do like that they are now up to 3 games now and they are doing better about the matchups.

NBA on Christmas works for the same reason as the NFL on Thanksgiving. Lots of sports fans stuck inside their house, or someone else's house, for most of the day.

Cavs ownership ordered Lue to tank the season by benching the vets, and Lue wouldn't go along with it.

Quote:Sources told ESPN's Brian Windhorst that Lue recently had a disagreement with Altman over playing veterans. Altman preferred that Kyle Korver and JR Smith be taken out of the rotation to give time to younger players. After one game in which they didn't play, Lue put both back in the rotation without consulting Altman.

He wouldn't have been told that if last years coach and gm, LeBron, was still there 05-stirthepot

RE: 2018-19 NBA Thread
Cleveland had to deal with that as the price for getting LeBron back from Miami. LeBron knew that Gilbert & Co. are a clown show.

And that's a factor the NY media overlooks when they drool over Durant. Knicks management is just as bad as Cleveland's. KD may very well want to go to a team where he will be the undisputed leader, but there are many teams he could choose that are not run by bozos.
