    This is a trade I cooked up in the trade machine...

    I don’t think it will do anything in the West... but at least you clear out the wood...

    Can those guys score more than 9 points in a quarter??
    Cavs vomit again in the second half. Terrible stuff.

    Just watched the replay of GSW vs OKC...

    I’ll say it again....

    OKC is made to compete with the Warriors.

    Russ and PG were dominant.

    And once again... they just couldn’t handle Adams.

    He even got in foul trouble early... and then just dominated in the post.

    A lot of reports saying they need another shooter to space the floor. What do you think?

    Anything to wipe that shit eating grin of Curry’s face

    They got a bit more defence and a bit better 3 point shooters.

    Nance and Clarkson I don’t know much about but happy with hill and hood

    I think the buy out market is going to be intriguing....

    Teams like OKC and the Warriors just didn’t have the assets to make an impactful trade....

    But you’d think that the Thunder will be going hard at a guy like Tony Allen when he’s eventually bought out.

    Joakim Noah is another interesting guy... the Warriors could definitely do with him.

    Do you reckon Noah adds more than javale?

    Looks to me that the cavs wanted to clear the negative shit from the dressing room. Maybe IT, isn’t much of a team player.
    He is going to hate it at the lakers with Lonzo as the primary handler.
    Sure he can shoot, but apart from the substandard defence there has to be a reason he is moved on more often than not

    I think If Noah can stay healthy hes the rim protector they need.

    As Charles Barkley would say... Javale is Tuuuuuurble!

    Anyone watching this Cavs v Thunder game??

    9mins left in the 4th.... Cavs up 96-89.

    The Thunder should be losing badly here....

    Adams has been unbelievable.... still 9mins left in the 4th... he has 20pts and 15 boards.... including 10 offensive boards...

    I watched the first half on the train to work.
    Had to make do with play by play after that.

    Adams has been immense lately. 17 rebounds. OKC are so much better when they go to him, inst as of playing iso.

    The cavs are playing a much better brand of Basketball and look more likely than before the trades. It’s only been two games and we’ll see how they are on a fortnight

    Donovan Mitchell is a beast. But Nance Jr should’ve won the dunk contest

    It does not have any substance but they do put on a good show.

    It was actually better today than it’s been for quite a long time...

    I don’t know how sustainable it is though....
