    3pt %
    Embiid .300
    Horford .360
    Harris .326 as a Sixer
    Richardson .357
    The jazz had one starting player that was shot worse that Horford from three. That being Rudy. Food for thought.

    Clearly from a mathematical perspective, its only idiotic to not include two eastern teams, so the Bucks should have been there.

    Clippers are stacked they have Kawhi, Beverley, Paul George, Harkless, Mcgruder, Harrell, 7.1 Zubac, Lou Williams, Shamet, Green and 7'3" wingspan Mfiondu Kabengele. Scary Defense and the Clippers had the 3rd best bench in the league, average 53 pts per game, most in the league. Plus a Hall of fame coach name Doc. I dont think people understand how good this team is going to be. Clippers >>>>Denver>>> Bucks>>>76ers>>>>Lakers.

    WHY WHY 25 days ago

    Both of these teams have literally ZERO chance of winning. My god the nuggets didn't even get better this off-season. Gonna get swept by a shit tier team.

  • Batbrony

    As a Bucks fan, here's what I hate about Rose's analysis. The Bucks are absolutely going to miss Brogdon, but everyone is stopping their analysis at Wesley Matthews. Now yes, he most likely will replace Brogdon in the starting rotation and he won't be able to replace everything Brogdon gave them, but the Bucks clearly opted for a dearth of veteran experience over a big contract for a player like Brogdon who, while undeniably talented, has more injury concerns than anyone else in their starting rotation last year. You add in Matthews, Robin Lopez, Kyle Korver, whoever gets their 15th roster spot (and that could even be someone they get in the middle of the season), AND the draft picks they got from trading Brogdon to the Pacers, and the big picture for that team looks way different. While I can't say whether or not the team is better than they were at the end of last season, I don't think that's what people should be asking. They should be asking whether the Bucks for the start of the 2019-20 season are better than they were at the start of the 2018-19 season. From that perspective, I'd say they absolutely are; they have a much deeper bench to start this season than they did to start last season, which makes any mid-season moves they have to make much easier and, hopefully, less costly. More long term, Jon Horst is trying to prove to future FAs and younger talent entering the league that Milwaukee IS becoming a desirable destination from a year to year basis, and all of their offseason signings help reinforce that narrative for him. The final piece of securing that rep is his hope to re-sign Giannis after next season before he's a FA, and once that's done, it would presumably be far easier attracting even more desirable FA talent than they already have.

    ...everybody forgets the spurs were 4 or 5 games from been the 2nd seed and they were missing the starting pg and best defender...and players were in and out of the line up due to injury...and we had 8 new players and 4 new starters if healthy i see the spurs as a top team in the west...but go ahead and sleep on the spurs...

  • spursfan17 spursfan17

    ...jalen acting stupid...kawhi didn't end miami super team spurs did...check kawhi stats against miami and you'll see tim and tony played better than kawhi against miami than kawhi...he didn't do shit to spurs 2 years without kawhi we made the playoff if we were healthy last season we might of been 2nd seed...and against the warriors he didn't do shit warriors were far kawhi hasn't done shit to carry a team for people to be so high on him...he's been lucky...and if healthy spurs will be a top 3 seed clippers wont be the top seed they'll be 4th or 5th...spurs jazz lakers rockets blazers nuggets have a better team than the clippers...this will be kawhi worse season since faking an injury his last season with the spurs...

    Jazz at 4 give me a break. Donovan Mitchell was hot garbage in the playoffs, and only took one game from Houston. Now they are the fourth best team in the league with an aging and potentially overrated Mike Conley.

    LOL Unless you have some all star coming back late, like Golden State, there is no reason to have a different team for best record than you do for the champion. In fact, regular season record has been the BEST predictor of the eventual champion. WAY out preforming "expert opinion."

    I think the Kawhii situation was a massive kick in Toronto's nuts whether the admit it or not. They're in for a giant comedown from the High of this season. I think they place no higher than the 7th or 8th seed. That team has no #1 Siakim has talent but he's a solid #2-#3 guy at best.

    Cmon we talking about Paul "unfinished business" George. The same dude who cheated on doc rivers daughter with a stripper. The same dude who got that stripper pregnant. The same dude who offered to pay the stripper Three Million dollars to have an abortion. The same dude who later on married that stripper. The same dude who made a whole 2 part documentary on how much he loved L.A and would hope to one day still be a Laker only to choose to stay in OKC. This the same dude who got slapped in the playoffs by rookie led Utah team last year. The same dude who got pulverized by a "bad shot" from Damian Lillard in the playoffs this year and get eliminated.

    And some of you clipper band-wagoners swear this dude is > than AD. Yeah... right.

      Rockets got way worse. Westbrook is not an upgrade, one of the worst shooters in the NBA who can't defend either. He will fit in Houston like sandpaper on a banana or dare I say like Melo in OKC
