    It’s a shame Mike doesn’t do any work with the media...

    But on the flip side it’s kinda dope that he doesn’t. It really adds to the mystique...

    That being said it would be cool to hear him chop it up with other vets along with certain reporters & analysts.

    Even with that said, you’d have to factor in a adjustment period with integrating a washed Hayward, a now healthy Myrie and the young guys fresh off a ECF appearance with bigger egos. Maybe I saw it differently from the jump. @leemelone saw it

    I knew Toronto would be better with Kawhi. I knew Bud would help Milwaukee be very good (maybe not this good but still) and I knew philly would still be there. Add to it the moves they made, i’m not surprised they are in 5th hovering around 3rd/4th.

    Mike is arrogant and gives 0 damns

    I thought Toronto would be the only threat to them going into the season after getting Kiwi. It's more than an adjustment period though, when you hear comments like Morris Sr. and Jayson made that sounds like a squad that don't like playing with each other.

    You didn’t think Philly would improve after making the playoffs? Even without Stringer, they were going to be in the mix.

    There were limitations on Philly prior to getting Stringer. As much as Embiid has improved, Simmons really hasn't at all and never really bought in Fultz. As far as serious contender nah wasn't buying Philly at all pre Stringer.

    Not to mention the Bucks, I thought they'd be better with Bud, but best record in the league better? Not even the Bucks fans would have predicted that.

    We saw Bud win 60 games in ATL, you kinda had to think he would bring the best out of Giannis. Especially after they got Prunty out the paint.

    But yeah they are more legit than anyone could have thought

    We need him but I’m about 75% sure his knees will explode in a Knicks uniform or he’ll kill the locker room.

    Hard to believe that he's 29 years old with zero playoff series wins.

    Y'alls top 5 player.

    I’ve never seen someone @HOU$TON so upset with, of all players Rudy Gobert last matchup :lol:

    I’m hoping he sucks tonight to see an encore. He hates his guts

    That brook lopez signing has lowkey been played out as one of the best FA from last off season. Bucks finally have a big man who can score, stretch the floor to clear space for giannis and defend the rim. He doesn’t crash the boards but when you have middleton and a giannis to clean the glass, that’s fine.

    Bucks gonna be a problem for the warriors if they meet in the finals
