Lmao. I can’t believe we got swept by the fraudulent queens.


Not the same Kings team without Monk and Huerter


Zion was out, so that’s a fair trade. I’m being nice to Sac.


I mean not the same Kings team that swept us...


It wasn’t even close.

We were and have been embarrassing ourselves against them past couple of seasons tbh.

has Charles Barkley ever been right with his predictions

let's hope he predicts a Denver win


He unfortunately picked UConn over Purdue but even I knew that was going to happen.

I just pick the opposite of what Charles picks. Knew the Pels were gonna blow them out as soon as he said Kings. Easy money.

Jacquez is a player


Scored more points in the two play-in games than JHS scored in the whole season. Sigh…


And he'd be scoring no points on the Lakers as Prince and Rui are played in front of him and he'd be sitting on the sidelines in a warmup, a suit, or playing in the G-League for us.

People complain about Lebrons off arm on drives….yet no one mentions Booker. He does it every single drive.

At least Lebron gets hip and shoulder checked and just matches the physicality. Defenders have their arms straight up and backpedaling against Book and he nails everyone in the ribs with his elbow lol

Pretty Much.
Basically KD, Book, and Beal taking turns...

Still happy for Frank Vogel though. His talents was rewarded with a team who didn't include a delusional Westbrook past his prime in their starting lineup

1000%

I guess we gotta give Darvin some credit for our 48-35 record?......
I don't know....... LOL

I know for a fact Vogel doesn't play that small ball crap. Probably would have played Wood and Hayes more next to ADresulting less injuries to them all.

The Wolves are trouble, their length is something else. Just a formidable defensive team.

Durant proving again that he can't lead a team without Steph.
OKC, Brooklyn, and now Phx
I like Durant and his game, but he's not a guy you build a championship team around...he's a semi-passive 2nd banana

PHX really misses CP3

yes he gets away with alot. He creates so much space with his off arm and they dont even let the defender stand his ground.

Wolves defense is just too suffocating. Say what you want about Rudy, but he's one of the best defensive floor raisers the game has ever seen. He makes up for all of Town's weaknesses on that end.

Can't wait for the SGA vs Ant duel, assuming both of them are healthy. One is an ethical bucket getter, while the other flails his way to scoring.

Edward’s athleticism is incredible. He has shades of Kobe(8) and MJ while being able to jump out the gym. Love that kid

Durant was just fine. It is Booker who completely disappeared.

Because he got completely torched in the playoffs the other 3 times?
