As bad as Kobe Bryant has been, he's actually shooting better then James Harden (36% vs 26% FG, 19% vs 13% 3PT).

Awesome. I know D'Angelo Russell is just a kid and only has 1 year of college hoops in his resume, but he's been pretty rough so far. Definitely not #2 overall pick caliber yet.

Allegedly, he's dating Kendall Jenner, so he fell into the Kardashian curse/stink.

According to ESPN, "Tim Duncan now has the most wins with one team by any player in NBA history, with 954." Congrats, Timmy! The Spurs won against the Knicks today.

Crazy thought, but Luke Walton will be the next Laker coach.

Warriors didn't seem to get much respect most of last year (including from a few posters here), and even after winning the championship other people in the league seemed to make excuses against their title. Happy to see them, and Curry, continue to look great.

Yeah the Kobe deal gets brought up all the time, but how bad was it? The cap space wasn't going anywhere, Kobe keeps the fans coming and the casual fan interested, and he's worth far more to the franchise than what they're paying him anyway. The Lakers still get better ratings than the much better Clippers. Perhaps the only opportunity cost lost was in not keeping Dwight, but I'm not sure that would have been worth seeing Kobe in another uniform (and I still think their idiotic hiring of D'antoni was a huge issue in that negotiation). You can't even consider the Dwight deal that much of a bust because Bynum never really resurfaced. (now the Nash deal is another story)

Doc Rivers: Clippers' #didntloseby50 tweet 'classless, tasteless'

Following Los Angeles' 112-108 loss to the Warriors on Wednesday night, the Clippers' official Twitter account sent out the following tweet:

"Final from Oakland ... GSW 112 LAC 108 #didntloseby50"

Hey, I'm always looking for a new reason to hate on all things Clippers, but I'm not seeing it here.

Re: The 2015 - 2016 NBA regular season thread

Carmelo Anthony is regressing big time. That Knicks team has potential, but with him playing the Iverson way, there is no way they'll win anything. Melo still takes 16 seconds of iso to try and create something and most of the time it isn't working at all. The Knicks got back into the game tonight every time he was on the bench. When he was on the floor, the Bucks beat them on both sides of the court, mostly due to Melo playing iso on one side and no D on the other.

That promo is terrible. I realize that's a storyline, but seriously.

I know it's early, but the Timberwolves might actually have a halfway decent team this year. Their last two games have been wins that were typically heart-breaking losses last year. Let the Bulls send them to overtime, but then out score them 9-0 in OT. Blow a 30 point lead and fall behind the Hawks, then score the last 11 points of the game.

Re: The 2015 - 2016 NBA regular season thread

Heat trade Chalmers to the Grizzlies. Almost. Soon. Probably.

http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/14...phis-grizzlies

The Miami Heat have agreed in principle to trade veteran guard Mario Chalmers to the Memphis Grizzlies, according to league sources.

Yet sources told ESPN.com that the final form of the trade was still being worked out Tuesday afternoon, with ‎Miami on the hunt for a third team to take in the contract of Grizzlies guard Beno Udrih and/or Grizzlies forward Jarnell Stokes.

If the Heat are unsuccessful in finding another team willing to help facilitate the trade, sources say that Miami intends to go ahead and deal directly with the Grizzlies by sending Chalmers and young forward James Ennis to Memphis for Udrih, Stokes and a future second-round pick.

He's probably not the most popular guy in Memphis

Kevin Durant did not play the second half against the Wizards because he suffered a left hamstring injury. No report yet on when he will come back.
