Hood is the best pickup for them. They needed younger 3 point shooters and and he’s going to feast.


I say Clarkson because he creates shots for others and is probably the fastest guard on Cleveland


their best offensive lineup is JC, Hill, Hood, Lebron, and KLove.....their best traditional defensive lineup is Hill, Hood, Lebron, Nance and Thompson.


I am not sure if anyone was watching, but Hood was giving PG-13 fits for most of the time he was defending him. I think he held PG-13 scoreless until near the end of the 2nd Quarter, PG-13 used a screen to get by him and hit a mid range jumper. Honestly, not sure I have seen too many guys in recent years lock PG-13 up like Hood did for a stretch. Hood will be on the market this summer.....not sure what Cleveland will want to pay him.

Omg I remember this...the bobcats turned into the 96 Bulls whenever they played us. In fact I'm certain if they made it out of the east they would have swept us in 3 games.

Of course, the Mavs are stinking it up today. These scrub teams only get up the play the mighty Lakers.


My thoughts exactly

I can see even the Wolves beating this Thunder team in the playoffs. This Thunder team outside of Westbrook & PG is not scaring anybody in the playoffs. They have no reliable bench player, and if Ray Felton is the closest thing you have to reliable on your bench, your roster is very flawed. Thunder FO accomplished their biggest goal, which was Westbrook signing that super max contract. If PG leaves, the stories of selfish/cancer Westbrook will more than likely take shape. 2 All-NBA players in KD & PG leaving withing 2 seasons, Oladipo becoming an All-Star once he was traded from Westbrook, no big name free agent signing with OKC, etc. The Thunder losing PG might be the start of a very long rebuild for them to consider, including trading a soon to be 30 year old Westbrook who has no help on a super max contract, team might be in shambles.

Damn I remember in the heated Kobe vs. Bron debates back in the day I would say.."just wait until Bron hits his mid 30s and loses his athleticism, he will be a shell of his former self". Looks like I should said mid 40s instead

I mean the guy is just a physical specimen, I remember hearing somewhere he spends like 1.5 mil a year taking care of his body. Gotta give him credit for that and avoiding major injuries most of his career.

I will not personally go that far....but I think GSW is going to have to work both to get out of the West and in the Finals this season.....path will be tougher this season.

Brandon Ingram's TS% is currently 53% while Russ's is 52% and Melo's is 51%

Does anyone really believe that BI's won't continue to rise while the others won't continue to drop?
