I’ve noticed. I also noticed his lack of posts of anything remorseful or respect to Kobe’s death. If Tim Duncan had a heart attack, we would see a whole thread and a bunch of crying emojis from him in the post. What a piece of garbage.

Anyway, AD gonna be here for all of his career.


He was playing monopoly with his kids, Kawhi and PG13.😂

Well, well, well. If it isn't Mr. "Lakers Won't Get Out of the 2nd Round." You getting my $200 ready? Lol and since you're supposedly so concerned about staying anonymous, how bout you go to a grocery store, buy a $200 Amazon card, and PM me the code on the back. Any more excuses? Time to man up. Unless maybe AD was leaving your house instead.

When Jeanie executed the coup, dude was apoplectic, and when Jerry West went to the Clippers, that was it for VLF. He only comes here to dump on the Lakers. Treat him like an opposing team's fan.

He didn't look undersized against Giannis, so i don't think Bam will look undersized against AD. i am not saying Bam is gonna shut down AD, but he is the one player in the NBA (other than Giannis) that i would choose as best suited to guard AD.

It’s like how Kawhi is best suited to guard Lebron. Sure, but that doesn’t mean much when AD will drop 30+ on him anyway.

i mean, if you want to think being guarded by Jokic or 35 year old PJ Tucker is the same as being guarded by Bam, by all means. Will AD score 30 on the Heat multiple times? Probably, because that is what great offensive players do. That does not mean that the Heat have no one to guard AD or that all defenders are the same if the offensive player still gets numbers.

Bam will be guarded by Dwight and AD also. Don’t think he won’t be worn down carry offense then having to guard a legit big on the other side. He has played against turner/Lopez/theis/Kanter now he’s gonna be down low against physical defensive forces who also play on the paint. He won’t have the luxury of soft 3 point shooting big men

That is why i hope Vogel will continue to start Dwight. He can wear Bam down over the course of the series along with AD.

The issue isn't the one on one matchups, its the Heat's ability to rotate and converge on a player. They are actually pretty damn good at it.

Davis and or James will need to contend with multiple players and their quick hands. The Heat are also great at closing out on shooters. They work hard. Spoelstra has them buying and playing together. They will continue to work all game and grind down opponants with team basketball on both ends. They are explosive in an entirely different way then previous series.

Lakers will need to bring their A game every min of every game. I like the Lakers in 5 or 6 games if they can get contuinued defensive intensity, big games from James and Davis and role players hitting some shots at an average percentage.

Going to be a fun series. Go Lakers!

Bam is a great 2 way all-star but AD is the bigger, just as athletic, better shooter, superstar version.
Same with Butler to LeBron.

Tell me y’all don’t like this matchups

KCP vs Dragic
DG vs Butler
Bron vs Duncan
AD vs Crowder
Dwight vs Bam

Rondo/Kuz vs Herro

This is where ball movement is key. Spread the ball and keep them on the run, tiring them out so that in the 4th, we can go in for the kill.

I think it's the HEAT who will have to exceed their capacity because we have the two best players in the series at the get go. They rely much more on role players to score, etc.

The way the HEAT like to zone coverage, AD will have that mid-range jumper at the free throw line all day, which is his kill zone.
