Why some of you think AD can handle Adebayu? Because he’s short? Tucker was a lot shorter and AD wasn’t really abusing him in the Houston series.

Cuz we don't think anyone can handle AD.

Re: Houston, AD was a walking 25/12 the series. And if you take out the last game where he scored only 13 in the blowout, he was 28/13 games 1-4.

We're not saying Bam isn't good. We're saying nobody is going to stop AD.

Probably because he put up ridiculous stats in both regular season games against the Heat and has went on through all these playoffs putting up huge numbers at an insane shooting percentage against any and everyone that he's faced whether it's in the paint or on the perimeter. I believe AD is either 2nd or 3rd all time as far as scoring average in the Playoffs goes. Bam is about as big of an AD stopper as the endless revolving door of supposed Kobe stoppers we saw throughout the years. He's a damn good player and defender but nowhere close to an AD stopper.

Because he's already tuned him up in the regular season?

Tucker is a thicc boi with a very low center of gravity. Bam is a more standard build for his position, and AD has already played him very well.

I’ve always thought this myself. He’s starting to realize that he has additional levels he can get to.

AD realizing he has more in him is scary.

I really hope he hangs out with someone like Hakeem this off season and really starts to work on his post game. Thats all he needs.

I think at best he's a 3rd option on a championship team. AMIRITE!?


“Paul George is just as good and less injury prone” - VLF

Speaking of which where is that lovely sexist? Hiding behind Clippersground again?


VLF never shows up after Lakers wins


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.😂


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.


Exactly. He hates Jeanie and wants to see her fail just to say I told you so. He's a Laker hater and Clipper troll now.


Never forget that he is a geologist paid by oil companies to deny anthropomorphic climate change. His entire existence is being a troll.


Lol getting personal. I can dig it

His only problem is lack of post moves and to handle double teams better. Everything else is in place. I think as you said both of these can be easily fixed with Hakeem. I am sure he would be more than happy to help.

The jab step, the mid-range, the willingness to take big shots. Accepting the challenge defensively against bigs and smalls. AD can be even better (than he is now, not better than Kobe) if he adds a bit more aggression/ferocity: throw some elbows, get a T, and talk some trash (more than just facial expressions) to let your opponents know they are gonna be dominated (and there's nothing they can do to stop you).

He needed someone like LBJ to pull that out of him. His talent is essentially unlimited. He has no discernible flaw in his game, except what he chooses to do on a given night. He's a 6'10 guy with guard skills/shooting and elite defense.

Maybe strength is his only flaw? I dunno... flaw is probably too strong of a word. Strength is the only thing he's average at.

He really should win finals MVP this series. MIA has shown they can wall up wings like LBJ and Freak barreling into the paint. But they have no answer for AD.
And LBJ and Rondo make life even easier for AD. They give AD passes when he has position or a step on his defender. And by then, it's too late. The defense already lost.

I agree with this..if you put a big on AD, he is too quick..if you match his quickness, the other guy is too small.

One curious question I had all season that is a bit off topic because it has nothing to do with the Heat..is LBJ the one person in the NBA that can defend AD? We would never know because their teammates..but I am curious

According to r/Heat, AD is their top focus, their strategy would be letting LeBron get his, let the role players get theirs, but lock up AD at all cost

I hope AD steps up big time.
