What was incredibly stupid if true was releasing Okafor's private medical info. He may now be done in the NBA.
I like the tweets defending the collars he wears

One beer at a time, but taking on six pork cops at once

Not only are you full of crap, but you bore me.

As I said more tactfully earlier, if you can't see a difference between adding the game's second best player and most complete scorer to the team with history's best regular season record following two West titles and one NBA title AND what Miami, Boston, and Cleveland did, you are an abject moron. Sorry about your draw, kid

So, as far as stuff that matters, I think that given Philly's situation, LeBron or even Paul George could get Colangelo fired with one well-phrased tweet.

Who wants to play under a GM that will sabotage you ?

Can we all agree at least that Durant’s move made the NBA kinda suck when it should be awesome right now?

He’s gotta do what he thinks is best and Golden State obviously did the right thing for themselves, but it’s just a bummer for the league and its fans that it happened

I agree, but as has been said...all parties did what they felt was best for them, and allowed by the rules.

Durant had OKC on the cusp, though. That's what sticks in the craw of many. It's not his fault, however, OKC chose to pay Ibaka instead of Harden when that decision needed to be made. Yes, I know that occurred a few years before the rise of GS, but OKC had a chance to be the "super team" and blew it. Perhaps Durant never forgot that?

Guess it depends on who you're rooting for? LeBron has been the Finals 8 straight times. How's that any better?

Golden State forced the hand of Houston in an attempt to catch and beat them. OKC added Paul George and Carmelo in an attempt to catch and beat them.

This

Most early regular season games have been boring for a while. The season started at Christmas. Now that only the Warriors can beat the Warriors, we're left hoping someone will catch them sleeping.

I'm getting a mental picture of you and a team of Bassett Hounds lining up for the Iditarod. Thanks

Yeah it really seems like OKC was far better at selecting talent than managing it. A few different moves and maybe they have a few titles.

Yeah, I mean if you're not a Warriors fan the NBA kinda blows right now.

Luckily for the league the Celtics and Sixers are loaded with young talent and the Warriors will hopefully have contract issues in a year or two

If I'm Philadelphia, I fire Colangelo and hire David Griffin.

Bring back Hinkie!

I think his twitter issue is more common than many think.

Yappi likes to protect his pets. Moedude, cabe, DB135. He also deletes posts when people call him out.

The NBA's starts started to move in the 90's and it's never stopped. Shaq, Charles Barkley, Tracy McGrady, even Karl Malone and Gary Payton tried a season in LA to win a ring. You either lock the players down to one team or you let them leave, can't have it both ways.
Kevin Durrant can be a little squirreley, but he's mostly been able to "fit" in the GS system. I don't think Durrant ever felt he could win in OKC with Russell Westbrook, a ball dominate guard. So he moved on.

They were up 3-1 on the Warriors before Durant chocked away a Finals trip in games 6 and 7. That simply isn't true.

I'm in the "Yappi's pets" category ? Why would he treat a jackazz like me specially ? That's patentedly ridiculous.

Here's the deal. I'm kind of a grownup. I understand that there are lines that don't get crossed, and I take the time to come up with other ways to communicate my point or to poke at others.

When a poster runs wide open the way you have, Kemp Underwood Lahey MacArthur, you are going to get handles banned. Just because others are judicious doesn't make them pampered.

Question, Is Paul George a difference maker? I say this because I don't view him as a guy you build a team around. He's good, but not a guy that automatically makes you a playoff team.
The talk is George may go to LA. He went to OKC, with some decent players around him and they got pushed out quickly in the first round? Paul George, with no one else added to the current Lakers, maybe, possibly make them an 8 seed?
