Disgusting. No respect for champions. I won't be watching any more games this season. Congrats to whomever wins it all, but I won't be watching

I used to Bartend at a popular restaurant in Beverly Hills and lots of NBA players would come in...most people would dress up, it was a classy joint.
When Barkley came in the dude wore a T shirt.

I think you misinterpreted what I was saying, that's OK.
I appreciate your opinion. 🙏

That comment did not go over well. Chuck trying to be funny / witty, but there was an awkward silence when he said that, a forced chuckle. It's like that old, grouchy, out of touch Uncle you have who cares about nothing anymore and makes some snarky, petulant, strange remark that creates an awkward moment at the dinner table.

I was a Kuz supporter until last season. After last year, I just didnt see the point of him. Was not a fan of the extension either, although I'm told that was a good market deal for him, even for trade purposes.

He was really up and down. He'd play some good D, but not score. Then score, but make silly plays. He would then have good rebounding streaks but not do much of anything else. Then he'd do nothing.

I'm just over the guy. He will probably "flourish" as a starter on a team where he is allowed to shoot 15-20 times a game, where he will have likely an inefficient 18ppg average. Maybe the Spurs still want him.

everything.

Kuz has the ability to be a 20 point scorer on another team.
On this team its all in his head not knowing his role. You can see the confusion when he comes on the floor. He has no idea what option he is. Until he figures that out he will continue to be a mess.

The worthy to Philadelphia,and Charles to the Lakers trade fell through is all I got. Maybe he was already sizing his ring playing with magic and cap.

Yeah same here... I've given him the benefit of the doubt too long, he just doesn't fit here and I don't really think his "ceiling" is that high, low Bball IQ, and his shooting mechanics are all over the place

Some people thought Kuzma was on the same level or better than both D’Angelo and Ingram.

Thanks DB - love the same faces that come in here. We don't always agree, but we root for our team in the end, and that's what matters. And of course, you are the Grandmaster game break down commentator, so off to read your thread!

We will be back!
