    That’s right …. that was Meat’s other annoying thing. Still feeling bad for him though to see the math and algorithms changing on him keeping track for a few more years as to who won the AD trade. Maybe one year down the line one of the Kids will be on a team that wins a chip. Hoping that before that happens one or more of “our” new kids get a ring …. to match what 2 of our “other kids” did in the Bubble. Kuzma and Caruso. :rock: :rock:

    The fact that you are celebrating after 5 games it shows who will probably be right


    His game revolved around those calls. He will need to adjust his game and it may take him more time. Also don't know if he has the heart for it, but skill he has for sure

    I've been enjoying watching other games, the rule change makes it a lot easier to watch.

    young was complaining last night.

    https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id...oung-speaks-new-rules-frustrated-missed-calls

    or...hear me out...some of you guys would never have been big-time scorers without some seriously, systemically bad officiating.

    show me the footage of you driving in a straight line and getting knocked off balance. straight line towards the basket, not the defender, mind you.

    kuz apparently tweeted the same thing. the nba got hung up on stat watchers ("james harden putting up video game stats!") without considering that if someone scores 35ppg on 9 made fgs and 42% shooting, it's not a good viewing experience. i'd rather watch talented guys put up 25 honest points.

    I love this so much. He looks on the brink of giving up, after over a decade of this he doesn’t know how to stop

    I hate myself for saying this but that was a foul. Look at the coming toward you under the basket angle on Twitter too. To get past that self loathing for taking his side …. eff him anyway …. karma’s a b****. :clap: :rofl: And that jungle on his face is uglier than ever. He deserves the grief from the rules re-enforcement (not “change”) and he deserves Kyrie Irving. :D

    Fat Zion. Yikes! I read a week ago or so they were worried that he's over 300 lbs. His body can't carry his weight and that's a reason for some of these injuries. The baby fat will drop off, if his body doesn't quit on him first. He played at 285 last year, that needs to drop to 265 and see how that fits. But where he's at now (based on that footage) , that would be a 50 pound drop an that's not happening in season.

    Does NO not have a nutritionist or chef on staff? His weight was leaning towards an issue last year, you take care of your investment and guide him to leaner regimen.

    He should fire her yesterday.

    Needs to build himself more like Larry Johnson and less like today's Inside The NBA version of Charles Barkley

    Scottie Barnes looks like a great prospect so far. One to watch out for.

    Looks like he's following the school of Shaq in terms of conditioning. Honestly, shaq might be the only dude to get like 400 pounds and still dominate.

    Good grief, you’re a franchise player and the number pick. Your job is to play basketball and you can’t do that properly if you weigh more than Magic Johnson now. I know Zion probably had to be off his feet for awhile because of the ankle surgery but he could have been working on other parts of his game instead of seeing how many donuts he could shove in his mouth at one time.

    And Shaq got fat after having destroyed the league for quite a few years. Remember young Shaq? Would never call him fat or out of shape. He wasn't a monster, he was THE monster. At this point any comparison of Zion to Shaq is a huge insult to the latter. Zion should be ashamed, it's pathetic how fat he has gotten.

    Zion following the footsteps of all time great Oliver Miller. Some guys get stretch mark from gaining muscle. Not Oliver. His were earned the old fashioned way.

    Completely false. It's Ronald McDonald and the Noid.
