i think lowry should catch more heat for his miss at the 2 min mark. they were up 3 and klay/another gsw player got mixed up on a switch and lowry had a WIDE OPEN three that woulda been a possible dagger. and he wasnt even remotely close
I’m pretty sure that the Knicks would have no issues throwing a bunch of money at KD and letting him sit for a year while they tank.
this is more of a coli argument
Lots of teams will be fine with that
Yes, but I want it to happen for the Knicks so I don’t care what other teams are willing to do.
NYK could sign Durant and no one else. Let him miss next season while Barrett, Robinson, Knox, etc., play a bunch of minutes and figure out who can/can't play. Win the lottery, and then sign AD next summer.
Seems much too big picture for the Knicks
He also threw the ball into the back-court. He was terrible down the stretch.
Good thing Durant has a jumper, because he’s going to be a shell of himself driving
If it works great, if not, it becomes “the most knicks thing ever”.
This sucks for everyone.
Stopped reading after NYK and seeing some resemblance of a plan
Throwing a bunch of money at KD has always been the plan though
You stopped reading because it wasn't about the Hawks and you don't care about anything else.
Just to give you an idea...this is what we use to return HS players to sport.
6 different jump tests (singe leg, single leg cross jump, single leg to double leg, etc), a Y balance test, an agility ladder test, and measure their strength in the affected muscle group using a hand held device. They have to score within 90% of their unaffected leg.
Then they work out hard for 30-45 mins and repeat the same tests, this time obviously feeling much more fatigued. Still have to pass the same tests at the same level.
Now KD may not have been his old self, but if this is what is expected for JV girls soccer players, I can only imagine what the NBA uses. There was plenty of objective data that went into this decision that showed he was doing well.
damn, Kyle Lowry is 2 for 30 in go ahead situations in the last 20 seconds of a game since entering the league, his 6.7% is the worst % of anyone over that time frame.
the sample sizes are always so small for these that I mostly disregard them all together
except when needling Kobe stans, then I pretend they're valid
I agree, I just wanted to take the chance to shit on Kyle Lowry because fuck Kyle Lowry.
Be careful or you will be challenged to a fisticuffs in Temecula.
I must not pay attention to Lowry enough because he seems like too nice of a guy to get dogpiled like he does.
he's probably a nice dude, but he's always disappeared in big games/the playoffs.
idk he makes $31 million though? Seems like you should hit a shot or two at that price?
Lowry is probably a nice guy. He also plays a style that's dependent on drawing charges, flopping on offense/defense and running into contact in an effort to draw stupid fouls that I do not enjoy watching.
Just ignore my comments. I have a penchant for siding with people when getting piled on, even if some of them deserve it.
I love you for it
I'm usually on this side, as well. And, even though I don't like watching Lowry play, I've always felt bad for him that he's best known for being the all-star who turns into a mediocre player in the playoffs.
Classic Cleveland complex we get it.
I did blurt out laughing when someone called him Fat Chris Paul the other night at Game 3.
Golden States Bob Myers confirms KD has torn achilles, clears him to play for game 6
*From the onion
if the world were just and fair almost all of lowry's all star spots would have been given to Mike Conley.
I heard the Myers press conference and thought, “damn, this dude is torn up over this”. Then I saw the video of the press conference and thought, “oh fuck, that’s right, this dude used to be an agent”.
His acting was only slightly less awkward than Drake’s overemoting last night.
hood b. goode
you dont get to race bait me and start a conversation in the same day, dump
am i wrong tho
And that's what he did. Literally.
Seems like only yesterday that Toronto was a bastion of enlightenment, comportment, and acceptance that we poor American sports fans could never fathom.
Legit bummed out that we may never see old KD again. What a great player, KD and basketball fans are getting robbed from watching one of the greats. I know it’s cool to hate on KD but I hope he regains his pre injury form and we get to watch his run at greatness.
Hating on KD for being a frontrunning insecure weirdo is miles away from being happy he tore his Achilles tendon. I doubt there's anyone here glad about that.
Yeah I think you’re right, we’re all major sports fans here that I hope appreciate sports greatness. It’s too bad there’s shitty sports fans out there who are celebrating a career altering injury to an all time great.
Not sure if that is even possible but yes please
Probably b.s. but there it is. (insert the Ian Malcolm gif)
Lakers or Pelicans take on the Wall deal
This is like suggesting the Red Sox and Dodgers are involved in talks about a Mookie Betts trade, and the Tigers are involved because one of them is taking on the Miggy Cabrera contract.
I mean it could happen you never know
brb. Need to work the phone with my sources in those organizations to get the ball rolling.
