Only Nate McMillan would treat the first preseason game like a playoff rotation

My favorite post of the year so far was Gaknight posting this gem in the MLB thread a few days ago about Met fan homerism without an ounce of self awareness regarding his NBA thread posting.
Imagine thinking I'm actually reading a bunch into a preseason game and not fucking around in the middle of the work day
It's indistinguishable in tone from your regular season and playoffs posting
and draft day and free agent signing period and summer league and general offseason posting.
Hawks fans seem to be leaning into their homerism in an attempt to seem tongue in cheek and give themselves plausible deniability
WE ARE GOING 82-0 MOTHERFUCKER
PLAUSIBLY DENY THAT AS YOU STEP BACK AND FUCK YOUR OWN FACE
Kilmer watched gaknight during the ECF fluke run and decided he wanted that for himself
looks to me like he didn't finish the play and the bucks still scored
I'm convinced if you woke up in a room with no windows or doors and no concept of date or time you could accurately create a calendar down to the week based on tmb hawks fans posting. The cycle never fails.
Gaknight is smug as fuck that they're up to homecourt in the play-in. Must be March.
Gaknight says he's not going to watch any more this season. Must be December.
I really leaned into it with all the Trae hate. Multiple threads and engagement from fans of teams that weren’t Dallas were like PEDs for me. I wanted Luka at the time but I love my guy
if anything I should be listened to for saying Luka and JJJ were the best 2 in that draft at the time.
ITS QUIET AS FUCK IN HERE
Yall are just traeters
Sheesh. Woe upon the fans of every single team that won't employ this man
gimme some frozen ping pong balls and send slick vic to the garden
Good thing he got the stare down in rather than giving up the easy offensive rebound put back
It's cliché at this point but he seems to be a legitimate 2K Create-A-Player come to life, 7'4" and Curry range
when OKC drafts him and he gains 40 lbs off chicken friend steak >>>
It didn't work for Poku
Speaking of Poku, Presti has had some bad drafts since he got Roberson.
Other than Dort who he didn’t draft, he’s whiffed on a bunch
hey SAS, it isn't an obligation. It is a privilege.
Well we were drafting pretty low for a lot of that time. Tough to roast a guy for not picking winners at like pick 26. I do mourn Terrence Ferguson and Mitch McGary not working out though
He gets credit for Sabonis as well
Honestly is Wembanyama approaching best draft prospect in modern nba history?
Lebron happened so I’m going with no.
How soon we forget Cam Reddish.
He’s no Darko
Really digging what I’ve seen from Nikola Jovic
i would guess Iverson, Duncan, Yao, Durant, Rose, and maybe AD are also top 5 contenders, but I was a little too young to remember the guys in the 90s and think the hype around the top 5 i chose was superior to the later guys.
In a league with Lebron, KD, and Giannis; it’s absolutely wild that there can be a new unicorn amongst them
David Robinson should only be excluded from these lists if you're including his expected military service
Scoot would be the first pick in how many of the last 10 drafts? Pretty amazing that teams that tank but don’t get number 1 will get a really good consolation prize
since ‘80 the “generational” guys everyone planned a year beforehand were:
Oden (but KD had made debatable by draft time)
Kareem LeBron wemby
I don't remember (or guys were just before my time) some of the hype in terms of this far before the draft people talking about a prospect in this way. I'm guessing that's an extremely small list that only includes maybe Oden, LeBron and a few others.
But if we're just talking about guys who it was clear were considered "holy shit" guys and true prizes as potential #1 picks that you'd sell your soul to get, Anthony Davis is on that list. To maybe a slightly lesser extent, Wall and KAT were talked about that way, too.
I remember substantial hype around John Wall when he was in like 9th or 10th grade
Yeah AD is probably the only holy shit guy for me since Lebron, other than Victor.
I remember the year that Derrick Rose went #1 that several draft guys on the internet were saying Wall was going to be a clear step above him as a prospect in the following draft. I don't remember if that was still the sentiment by the time his draft rolled around, but Wall was the clear #1 guy before he got to UK.
Not a huge stretch for a guy that went #2 overall, but I felt like Durant was a lock to be an all timer after watching his freshman year at UT. He seemed otherworldly
I feel like they might need to patch Victor for balancing reasons
anyone in here subscribe to slam magazine still?
that's basically how I am judging hype of draft prospects; if i remember specific covers from slam (or SI/ESPN)
27 PTS (10-13 FGM), 3 STL, 2 BLK
sharpe is ready to dominate second-division israeli basketball
KAT was absolutely not talked about like that, he was a elite defensive prospect with raw/limited offense to start and everybody got it wrong
Gonna see a lot of this from teams
