NBA 2018-19: Dynasty Season 5; Can The Carrington Warriors Defend???

Marvin Bagley III went 32/7 in Sacto’s win over visiting cellar dwellers Phoenix. He becomes the sixth rookie this year to crack 30 (Doncic, Young, Jackson Jr,, Ayton, Knox)
 
Jeremy Lin's about to join Raptors once he settles the buyout clause with Hawks. Dinos will be too much to handle in the playoffs for Bucks it seems.
Lin is another high IQ player like Marc Gasol. I haven't followed Lin and not sure how much is left in his tank but he can pass and is probably at least as good as double-V who is out with torn hand ligament for at least 3 weeks. Gasol today showed he will be very valuable in the fourth quarter when Ibaka is usually not around. I love his game.
 
LOL
Kawhi PER 26.93
Jokic PER 27.80
You talk about crunch time, Leonard missed all game winners this year which I mentioned already.
Clutch FG %
Kawhi 49.3
Jokic 50.9
So far Jokic > Leonard

Harden PER 30.61
Clutch 41.4
I have nothing against Harden. Don't try to make me look like. He has done all these playing in that team with a bunch of lesser players.
Clutchness isn't just defined by last second shots, if that's the case then Robert Horry would be the GOAT. Jokic has literally accomplished nothing in this league so far and hasn't even seen the playoffs once. Idek why you have it out for Kawhi so much what did he ever do to you lol

Why is it so hard to understand for you that

1. Leonard is a great player.
No need to provide proof.

2. Having Kawhi in the team did not make Toronto better as planned even though a number of players are doing better and there is Green on both ends.

2018-19
O: 9th
D: 7th

2017-18
O: 3th
D: 5th

3. Jokic has better overall stats and better clutch stats than Leonard this year. I am talking about this year! I provided you the numbers. FYI, clutch is not measured by last minute shots. Score diff should be less than 5 points.

Jokic PER 27.14
Leonard PER 26.20

Your crazy if you think they're better with Demar than they are with Leonard. In the playoffs, you'll surely see a big difference since Derozan was a massive headcase in the big games. Simply put, no team with Derozan as their leading scorer was going to contend for a title, nobody in the league feared him one bit and they knew he was a perennial choker.

With Jokic, it's hard to compare a big man with a perimeter player since they both have their value, but it'll be hard to find many NBA execs who will prefer to build a franchise around Jokic over Kawhi

You're talking about individuals and I'm talking about team performance. No question Leonard is a better player than DeRozan.

Well in terms of team performance, they have a better chance of winning the title or at least making the finals with a Leonard-led raps team then they ever did eight Derozan. The raps gave Derozan multiple chances and he failed to do anything time and time again when it really mattered.

Bottom line, if you’re a true raptors fan, you should be enjoying Kawhi as much as you can this year because it’s gonna be a longggggggg time till raps fans ever get to see another player this good play for their team. This year is also the first and likely last time the raps will ever get such a good look at making the nba finals and potentially winning it

Who is to decide who is a true fan? What is wrong with liking a guy who loved to be here and served best he can and carried his team to conference finals first time ever more than a guy who doesn't want to be here and also betrayed his teammates and his coach who made him what he was.
 
AD scored 3 points tonight and NOP lost by 30 at home to Orlando. Vucevic wore the superstar out going for 25/17 in a shade under 27 minutes. The more impressive stat is Jonathan Isaac lighting it up for 16 points in the first quarter! Finally, last year’s lottery pick is looking like what everybody expected coming out of FSU. He finished with 20/7 and three swats. He has had no less than two erasers in his last seven games. The Magic are 6-1 in those games and winners of the last four. The team is now just 1.5 games out of the final playoff spot.
 
GSW looked ragged for three quarters and then proceeded to blow up on the visiting Jazz to win 115-108. Gotta <3 KT when he dislocated his left ring finger in the first quarter, went to the dressing room to get it reset, then plays a solid second half on both sides of the court and finally silenced Donovan Mitchell in the fourth.

NOP takes down red hot OKC with Davis leaving the game at halftime with a “shoulder injury” and only a 3-point lead that was expanded in his absence to as much as 17 points before OKC’s rally fell short and NO fans left Smoothie King Arena happy by 9.

Total fabrication by Klutch that NOP have not made moves to build a winner. In fact, last night they played very nicely in AD’s absence. Jrue Holiday is a stud and Julius Randle has improved under Gentry this year. Moore has also upped his performance in The Big Easy. Before they became sellers, they also had Mirotic. This has become such a soap opera that I believe Rich Paul is using this as a dress rehearsal for his move into his eventual career role as the entertainment industry’s GOAT mogul.

Appeared NO fans last night, only three showed,

Those three outnumber Knick fans happy about beating ATL.

Those three saw PG13 and RW0 combine for 7/29 from the arc to help make OKC 4-20 this season in games RW0 shoots 20 plus times. They are 17-0 when he feeds the pumpkin, making that gaudy 44 part of the 44/14/11 tripdub (record 11th straight) seem kinda empty. Feed Noel more (22/13 in just 21 minutes) when not driving or mid-range jumping himself (14/18 inside the arc).
 
Woj reports it is now officially a Dempster Fire in The Big Easy. GM Dell Demps is fired after 9 years of solid service to the franchise.

I am beginning to feel real enmity towards Rich Paul (and Unibrow) for their actions that are causing havoc and pain to good people with more life skills than a lucky arsehole selling throwback jerseys out of a car trunk when he had a chance encounter with an emerging superstar at an airport in 2002. The guy is wrecking the NBA.
