86 players play 30+ minutes per game. Another 11 players play 29.5+ minutes per game.

It's pretty obvious 14Red is the most facetious poster on here and pretty obvious he's never played any sports. For a guy like him just let him post and don't respond. I've tried to follow your logic and even defended you against a poster I like but it's really impossible.

The more we respond,the more credibility we give him.

Thanks fro the props Zezzo, don't recognize you so not sure how long you've been on here. I think if you look deeper in the numbers and watch the games, you'll understand my posts more. It's more from a logical, common sense approach. You see, you have to look beyond the sports pushing of players or situations. For this issue, the triple double in the NBA is simply a byproduct of a 48 minute game and a 24 second shot clock. There are simply ALOT of statistics that can be attained in an NBA game. Probably the major skill that Russell Westbrook has is his stamina. He's able to play at a high level, a high pace more than just about anyone else. Because of this, he's a stat stuffer. Does that make him one of the best players?? Not necessarily. Has he got worse since last year he's not averaging a triple double? No, not at all, he's got Paul George on the team now and the ball isn't always in his hands at the end of the shot clock like last season. Chris Paul is now back for Houston, so look for James Harden's assists to decrease significantly as Harden will play without the ball more now.

76ers are now only asking for one 2nd round pick for Okafor. It went from 2 1st rounders to 1 1st rounder and a solid player to this per Woj.

Jahlil Okafor has been traded to the Nets with Nik Stauskas and a 2019 2nd rd draft pick for Trevor Booker

Decent read about the trade. Cavs should like this because it probably hurts the Nets chances of winning. Philly just unloaded dead weight for a role player. Decent trade for Philadelphia considering neither were really receiving playing time.

Philly fan here. Unfortunate it didn't work out for Okafor, he just simply does not have NBA talent these days. He can score in the post, but he can't defend and he doesn't do anything else well enough to make a rotation. Ironically, he needs to try to transform into the guy he was traded for, Booker. A hustle guy who scraps for every ball. He's been an instant contributor for the Sixers and is a nice piece to add to the Sixer front court.

Are the Celtics really trying to deal for Anthony Davis?

Yeah not sure if any of it is serious but let's pretend it is. What would the Celtics have to give up to get Davis?

Something like Tatum, Smart, and the Lakers pick.

Yeah I think Tatum and the Lakers pick has to be offered for there to be a chance

Seems like a no-brainer for both teams. No way New Orleans gets a better offer than that.

I'm sure the argument against the trade for Boston would be mortgaging your future to win now, but Davis is only 24 years old. Kyrie is 25. Hayward is 27. Brown is 21.

Even if you think there's still no chance to beat the Warriors the next couple years(which I'd disagree with, a Davis/Kyrie pick and roll might as well be from a textbook of how to exploit GS) you have a 5 year title window with that core.

It only makes sense if you really think Tatum could be a top 15 player in the league. I don't see him having that kind of ceiling. I think he kind of is who is he going to be already, which is a highly efficient scorer with below average defense. The sort of guy you love to have on your team, but not a generational talent like Davis.

Nothing to add here, Neo is pretty spot on. Boston has a bunch of young assets. Outside the guys who are already stars, I don't foresee any of them turning into a star. Ainge has been collecting for awhile, it's time to cash in. If NO takes it, it's a no brainer for Boston.

Would the Celtics be the favorite in the East if this happens?

I think Kyrie and AD will mesh well. AD adds to their defense and can guard a lot of different players

The odds of Tatum and the draft pick < the future production of Davis. Definitely a no-brainer. And it actually gives the Celtics a leg up on dominating the East for the next 5 years with a core of Irving, Davis, Hayward and Brown.

Absolutely, especially with the talent drain going to the West. AD can become more of a rim protector and less a #1 scoring option with the weapons around him in Boston.

Oak isn't of much value in the NBA anymore. Power forwards who can't guard on the perimeter are not viable in the NBA.

That was a poor selection by the Sixers. Simmons and Embiid look like they are going to stick, Fultz it's too early to determine. But Okafor is a bust. Now his new team, the Nets, want him to lose weight.

I think the Warriors are going to have a heck of a time getting by the Rockets this year. If the Rockets are healthy come playoff time, they can beat the Warriors.

If you're willing to render a verdict on Lonzo, you can reach one on Fultz. He's broken mentally and physically.

Fultz played what one or two games? Was hurt when the season began.


Look, my disdain for Lonzo has as much to do with his Dad, his "brand" and the whole way players are labeled today. We were told that Lonzo would be better than Steph Curry, would lead the Lakers to multiple titles. I don't recall any banter about Fultz. Most didn't even knew who he was.

Fultz is still part of the "process".
