    Can't forget GSW's part owner literally taking a swipe @ Lowry during the Finals, so that on top of Lacob/GSW pressuring Durant publicly. Then the alleged sex assault by Luke while he was on GSW's watch. They've been under fire in recent months. Signing fan fave Draymond does give their fans a positive headline, at least in their eyes. David West sort of pulled up the curtain on their sketchy culture on his way into retirement. Caving to public pressure from GSW ownership and teammates, obviously, some of that is just on Durant. Nobody actually put a gun to his head and he has a record of being weak, but GSW definitely did their part in keeping the flame to his feet.

    While on the topic of public pressure, David Griffin is also pretty weak. Weak for whining about the media scrutiny he'd have to incur as a result of LeBron returning to Cleveland to compete for championships, and weak for backpedaling after opening his mouth about LeBron. Shouldn't have even been talking about LeBron at all..talk about your own team..same goes for Kerr and his BS take on AD. Fairly easy to shit on a reporter's question and move to the next one. Happens all the time. Now, you gotta hand out explanations because of backlash. Smh Whether he meant to do it or not, Griffin exposed himself..probably shouldn't even be considered for big market jobs from here on out. Let him stay in small markets and continue being the GOAT draft lottery winner.

    Can't forget Melo and his weakness either, calling for an impromptu 1 on 1 interview on BSPN to " set the record straight " and beg for a job. No different than Dwight and his fuckery every offseason, pleading for spots on teams. Melo says he's willing to come off the bench and play a lesser role. FOH. Nobody really cares about a washed up 17th year star that can't defend or catch and shoot. " I was the 4th option for OKC "..guy would be like the 8th scoring option on the Lakers. Rather they run a screen/roll heavy O with McGee than dump the ball in to Melo for old man iso/mid-range BS. There are just options that are better suited for the role he needs this late in his career. And saying, " I want to play " doesn't help when the role you're best suited for is the Jared Dudley/mentor/bench-rider role. He thinks he's being blackballed..excuses. 1 dimensional his whole career..of course nobody believes he can fall in line and have an impact doing other things.

    Wonder if Penberthy will be tasked with fixing LeBron's free throw fuckery. If LeBron isn't going to make free throws, just give the ball to AD in the 4th and gfto the way

    Looks like the entire Celtics' roster is on the USA FIBA squad. Wow. And coached by Popovich and Kerr. Kuz is in enemy territory

    To avoid all this stuff team USA should have two squads.
    A junior squad with only players that are still on their rookie contracts.
    Once a player finishes the years on his rookie deal he no longer qualifies for the JV team.
    That way the main squad can't be supported by young players but instead would depend on veterans.
    So Melo could still play and somebody might care :D

    JV team would be a nice mix of former/current Lakers and former/current Celtics.

    Zuzma? Sounds like Zubac and Kuz as a couple. I'm more worried about him joining the Kardashian clan, but at the same time I'm pretty sure LAL was winning titles when Odom was with the big Kardashian. Kuz may have to take one for the team and stick it out. He'll probably be on crack in a few years, but he'll have a couple rings

    Bayless is some kinda troll. Called Kawhi lucky at every turn in the playoffs and has been hating him for more than a year, but now that Kawhi has joined the Clips he's no longer lucky and going to take LeBron down he says. Smh

    Even worse, Bayless has been calling PG " George Paul " for years because of his underachieving ways in the playoffs, and now that George has landed @ Staples to take on LeBron he's Paul George again. Pure entertainment

    What is the fascination with Chloe and Kim Kardashian? They are not attractive. They are actually overweight prostitutes.

    The only attractive Kardashian is Kendal and she’s actually a Jenner, so she has two moms.

    Figuring some of these offensive numbers is intriguing. I think LeBron and AD should be at least 50pts per game together. Kuz and Boogie, I think they'll combine for around 30pts. There will probably be a solid dropoff after that. Maybe Danny Green averages 10, maybe he doesn't. They'll probably have a bunch of guys around the same number from there..6-8ppg. Guys like Caruso, Cook, Bradley, KCP and Javale..gotta be able to get 25-30pts out of that group. Feels like a lock that LAL will be a Top 10 scoring team and be around 115ppg. Just a baseline expectation.

    Now, what do they do defensively? Vogel's the only coach outside of Popovich that's had multiple Top 5 defenses since 2010, I believe. We've heard about his calling card being defense, and both Kidd and Hollins are big defensive guys, so even if LAL is just slightly above average defensively, do they cruise to 55-ish wins and home court in the 1st round? May depend on how they execute late in close games..LeBron and his free throw shooting, etc.
