    the way harden was officiated before was inconsistency. it's important to understand that and not let the narrative get away from us. reframing any missed call against him as some sort of conspiracy is the path back to the b*******.

    OK just read the short Athletic article on this and who the other “2” Jokic brothers are. Marcus and Markief would be wise to steer clear of those guys since Nikola would be obligated to handle his own s*** too. 3 Jokic brothers >>>>>>> (big nasty dudes) >>>>>> 2 Morris brothers.

    Thats going pretty easy on Jokic. But Kief needs to be suspended as well. Retaliation wouldnt have happened if there wasnt a dirty play.

    The whole debacle is over for now. If Jokic was our player, I would be proud of him. If someone did that to Lebron, I would want someone to take his head off.

    I hope this shows other guys... that u can stand up to "bullies" (which in reality are p****** ). Time for Beverly, Embiid and some other fools to hit the deck...

    Why? If Bron did the same thing Morris did, i would hope someone retaliated and knocked him on his a**.

    yeah, i don't love shoving a guy in the back, but morris was most certainly trying to be a bully and expected he'd be protected by the officials. jokic didn't do anything that would have seriously injured him, just made sure he knew that he wasn't going to get punked while morris hid behind the ref's skirt.

    i bring it up every time, but fisher tackling scola was huge and important. guy was just tossing guys around with impunity, and that has an effect--which is why he was doing it. you neutralize it by planting that dude on his a**. and it really just takes one time to a) get the officials' attention and b) negate the psychological edge gained through physicality.

    I’m fine with what the Joker did. He didn’t start it but he finished it. If Morris did that on a playground he would have gotten his butt kicked or worse, the Artest table leg incident.

    No, I meant if Morris hit Lebron like that.

    That Fish move has attained mythical status but really was just an accident. Notice the "oops" expression afterward. Ignore his wink. :D

    Oh, ok. If that was the case, i would hope Dwight was moping the floor with Morris, from baseline to baseline. Bron wouldn't retaliate ;)

    Charlotte has a good team. They really need a center, they get murdered with only Plumlee. Worse with PJ Washington hurt. Ibaka would be perfect for them, I think he still got it for this role

    Ball - Rozier - Hayward - Bridges - Ibaka

    A nice closing lineup to be a sleeper in the playoffs if they improve defensively

    Judging from how the punishment was handled between morris and jokic…. Cheap shot is worth it if the person retaliating gets a bigger punishment. Thank you nba for making it an equal punishment… “end sarcasm”. Morris deserved to be suspended and thats a fact. I guess if a player is going to retaliate, might as well make it worth it and literally beat the crap out of them.

    Without Zion and BI, they might as well forfeit those games. They're really bad.

    …. jeezus Caruso like a defender diving over the middle for an interception. On the hardwood, he’s a beast and looks to have gotten even better on defense this year. How many of us predicted he would continue to improve. Skills that were already elite have gotten freaking better. More decent even if you can believe it.

    Speaking of fatty and Slender Man …. what injury for how long is BI out with?

    We could use Josh Hart this year instead of Bazemore

    well, yes, but at 6x the cost? We let Caruso go over 1/3 of the difference.
