People don’t want people who have a habit of making “bold takes” choosing their MVP. Nick Wright should never be approved and I feel bad because he passionate but he wreckless too

Again this is why nick knows little about basketball. Nurkic and Collins play specific roles on the team as extra defenders and good passers in a system they both know well. The one thing the blazers lacked is depth. Past their starting 5 they didn't have much because of injuries with a few throwaway and rookies

Nick naming the nets must be KD and Kyrie, and now the Blazers must be scared for the number 1. Zion

Nurkic, Collins and Hood are 3/5 starters... they’ve missed essentially the whole season... if LeBron was missing 3 starters Nick Wright would be making all the excuses for him but since it’s Dame we’re discussing, he gets all the blame for the blazers subpar record smh

If they were truly interested in safety they’d drop the top 16 into the playoffs on a best of 5 series

Phoenix Suns were 7-4 to start the season. All of that was without Ayton. Then major injuries derailed their season. They are fully healthy. At some point these boys are going to get some rep

When LA don't win the final, or is beaten out in the second round, they're going to be very sorry that they Resume the season, TRYING TO GIVE LEBRON A EASY CHAMPIONSHIP, hoping some silly team beat the Clippers, and the Milwaukee Bucks, so that it will be a WALK THROUGH FOR THE LAKERS.

Nick does realize that Nurkic has been and will continue to be more valuable to the BLAZERS than Whiteside, right?

In fact, maybe drop bottom 4-6 teams after all star break for the rest of the season..? Not even sure how itd work but idk i think that might spice up the regular season
Byron Bowman
Byron Bowman Month ago
They act like Washington is bums (they are actually) but you have to out run them and out score them to beat them. Beal is 2nd in league in scoring. Milwaukee would sweep them but they could go 5 or 6 games against any other team in the East.

Nick Wright coked up this guy using some type of drug he's high look at him . If you are a great coach this is perfect situation for your ball club to move up in the standing . Anthony Davis should definitely be in the MVP talks he has the Lakers top of the west , but Giannis is the top runner AD should won defense player .

It's too much going on, just cancel the season
SP#34 Month ago
Should be top 8 from each conference . Each team plays everyone in thier conf once allowing teams to go up or down and find some ryhthm, then playoffs start . For those 9th-11th seeds with a chance , its just unfortunate for them because of circumstances . You cant please every team in this situation

The fact that a Nick Wright would even be considered as a potential voter in the awards given to players tells you all you need to know about these awards. (MVPs and such are GIVEN, titles are EARNED)

OMFG if Nurk and Collins come back I genuinely think Portland take the Lakers out round 1. Bron will quit when Dame goes off on him. Side note, the NBA awards would lose any credibility they have the second they give Nick "Bron Ball Washer" Wright a vote. He would literally vote Lebron across the entire board.

Can someone explain this 22 team format ?
Adam V
Adam V Month ago
From what I understand it would be the 16 teams currently in the playoffs, then teams that are within 6 games of the 8th seed which would include the Kings, Pels, Spurs, Suns, Blazers, and Wizards. Then I think they play a few games to determine seeding and get in shape, then they have a play-in tournament for the last 2 seeds. I also think under this proposal they get rid of East/West and seed 1-16. Don’t quote me though I might be wrong but I think that’s the proposal
B J Month ago
Of course they're all in. They are struggling to make up content with no sports.

I’m confused is it a 22 playoff format or 16?
POLO Month ago
Alexander 2016 I wonder if Dallas is including they’re 10 games over .500 but a 7th seed
Alexander 2016
Alexander 2016 Month ago
The idea is, that teams under .500 are play-in tournament for the last 3 spots. The teams over .500 are already in.
Eon Ross

22 that will be cut down to 16 I assume

Enforce clear and pragmatic laws that state just punishments for committing several degrees of crimes. Without fundamental laws that enforce justice, the police would have no incentive to deviate from their previous mindset that they are above the law. The prerequisites for becoming a policeman with only needing 6 months to a year of training needs to be extended at least to an amount of time it takes a barber to obtain a license. Every other field involving the care of life requires an exponential amount of more time in comparison. Police funding should be subject to deviation based on a review system and code of conduct cases related to cases like George Floyd. An amendment to this act could be a bonus style system or another way to make our police units feel more for their service because it's a difficult and frustrating job to say the least. A fourth step could be the implementation of interracial cop pairings to further improve the depth and understanding of another culture by gaining another perspective other than their own. I also believe the probability of another cop of different origins or background being present would reduce the probability of one of these tragic events occurring. An increase in salaries for Police officers would increase the supply of talent in the pool of potential candidates. This would allow for more flexibility of relieving officers for unsatisfactory performance and weeding out the bad apples. Salary increase can be achieved through reallocation of state budgets or increase in taxes, which people will be more inclined to understand given the outcry from the masses.

Yeah it’s sorta annoying he’s taking shots at Dame for not making the playoffs when 3/5 starters have been injured for the blazers when I’m sure he’d find a way to praise LeBron if he was in the same position
Tomasoranski Month ago
Have 23-30 seeds compete for better lottery odds.
Simon Sez
Simon Sez Month ago
Tomasoranski They already did that for 60+ games this season... they’ve already shown their worth lol are 5-10 more games really gonna prove anything that the regular season didn’t already? Possibly but I just have my doubts
Simon Sez
Simon Sez Month ago
Nathan Poulos I agree with your point there, plus I don’t think players even care about picks like that. The Suns and Knicks have got all the picks in the world and where has that got them? Even the King’s and Timberwolves. Atlanta has had a ton of picks. I don’t think anyone’s gonna be motivated to play by some picks
Tomasoranski Month ago
Nathan Poulos every player wants a new contract. If they’re expiring, they play for their next contract. Prove their worth in the NBA. It’s just an idea 🤷🏽‍♂️
Nathan Poulos
Nathan Poulos Month ago
what about all the players in those bottom teams who are free agents next year and have no interest in staying at that team. Why would they want to risk injury and play off for their team when they won't be staying next season to improve that team. Would make no sense for them
