Don't care what anyone says, I think Kadri did that on purpose.

Maybe I missed something and I need to rewatch it, but on the replay I didn't see any indication of his moving his stick trying to get/play the free puck; it just looked like intentional barreling to me. But maybe it's just a coincidence that one of the top 3 dirty players in the league did a dirty thing.

Hopefully Binnington's back for Game 4, but even then if he comes back he needs to be in his same 110% effective form he'd been showing of late which isn't a guarantee. What a crappy development.
I am sure I see him moving his stick in such a manner, watching a replay of it. I don't think it was on purpose. This isn't the best quality but you can see him jutting his stick out trying to get to it, then he runs into the other dude and they both slam into binnington.

I am with changmas that taking the others out of the equation is the way to beat dallas. Just put someone on luka who will make him work, that's all you need, even if he gets his.

We saw it in the first few games, if you tire him out by making him work on offense he becomes a sieve on defense. Then you can get all those points back.

whatever criteria you want but I'm pretty certain most people just go on the stats that are presented. It's up to you how to value them.

For example, some people might value 2 INTs and 3 FF for a LB differently than 3 INTs and 2 FF. Some positions like OLine it's pretty cut and dry but for defense, it's all what you value most. If you think a dude making 50 more tackles compared to someone who got 2 more INTs and FFs than them is more valuable, then go for it

The jeudy stuff came out, it's not that bad tbh. Basically he alleges the mother of his child took one of his phones, so he took some of her stuff and hid it in his car, after which she called police. No violence or anything like that. He was even released already because the judge found no reason to believe there would be any physical contact.

He's perhaps earned the right but 99% of the time you're much better off not saying anything or uplifting your teammates rather than throwing them under the bus. He has professional relationships with these teammates and disparaging them in front of the media year after year will surely not improve chemistry or their play.

If you want a comparison look no further than Giannis. He's been let down by teammates in games and playoff series before but I have never once heard him deflect blame onto his teammates. They have his back and he has theirs, and Milwaukee is a stronger team for it.
I am curious about something if I may ask: do you blame embiid for simmons wanting to leave? Like do you consider the whole saga embiid's fault?

Doc definitely seems to have a chip on his shoulder. He had that whole bit a little while back about how he went down the list and explained away every one of his playoff exits

I think russ is washed because I don't think russ can do anything very well anymore. He's a net minus because he's too inefficient imo. I don't think harden is a minus, harden can at least shoot the ball with some accuracy. Like I said, if you believe washed = not as good as once was, that's perfectly fine. I'm not here to debate the definition of washed. But I don't thinkt he gap between harden and westbrook is as small as some others think.

I do however highly disagree with the seeming clap against embiid. What else is he supposed to do? He's playing with a thumb that needs surgery and a broken face. Sometimes it's not deflecting, it's rightfully assigning. If you want to say he shouldn't do it in public then fine, but embiid has been the one constant presence in the court. And I don't even like embiid because of how he carried himself earlier in his career but if anyone has been the good soldier all this time, it's him. He's earned the right to criticize his teammates imo.

This is gonna come down to your definition fo washed. I don't think harden is worth hundreds of millions of dollars. I also do not think he's washed. Simple as that for me. If changmas views washed as not as good as he once was, then changmas can take the W there, because I agree on that front.

which one of you was insisting to me post-Simmons trade that I was wrong about Harden being completely washed?

Id like to collect on that right now
P sure it was me, iirc. And I maintain the stance that at that time, when I was making the argument, that he was not completely washed. If you want to equate now to then then go for it, but that's not the argument I was making to you. He played like he was washed these past couple games.

Even after this playoff series, I don't think he actually is washed though, unless his desire isnt there. If he isn't willing to put in the conditioning effort to get himself right (which is imo the main problem) then sure, I'll give that to you. But I think the same thing is happening to him as was to simmons. He had a really bad couple of games and suddenly he's a useless player. He still shot a respectable 36% from 3 in the playoffs, avg almost 9 APG, scored over 19 a game...that's still a useful player. Harden-level, no, but washed? I'm just still not buying it.

After next year, they will only have 98M in actual salary on the books. If they sign a bunch of 1 yr deals to fill out the roster next season, and renounce harden and the rests cap holds after, that would be more than enough cap space to go after someone substantial. Maybe not a max guy but someone who can contribute a lot, and that's not even factoring what if they manage to parley harris's expiring contract into some disgruntled star.

I guess I am assuming though that he opts in to next year. If he opts out and demands the contract now then I guess they are kinda screwed.

If philly fails again next year, then embiid will want out anyway imo. He already shaded harden in last night's postgame presser, if anything embiid would be more likely to say "no let him go" and free up cap space to try and get another star in there than he would be like "Yeah let's pay 50m/yr to an obviously aging guy"

Especially since in 23-24, tobias will be an expiring deal so you might be able to flip him for someone, while harden expires and you can just renounce him if he wants too much. They have a lot of flexibility after next year salary-wise.

You say intentions be damned but what's he supposed to do, not go for the ball? It's easy to say in slow motion but all this happened in a split second. No one has the mental acuity to reach for a ball, already be pulling your hand back, find your hand on someone's knee, and be able to go "Oh I should not pull my hand back right now it could hurt this person" in such a short amount of time. It was unfortunate but it was a legitimate basketball play imo.

oh man arby's potato cakes. I didn't get those so much but they were kind of similiar to I think they were like, bacon and cheese stuffed potato cake-like objects? Those were great.

Also the thing that sparked this topic for me was I went to walmart the other day, and they have a hot bar/deli area where you can get a lunch plate for p cheap...or used to. Used to be like 5 bucks for any one meat (chicken mostly of varying styles) and any one side (usually went mashed potatoes or big fat mozz sticks), or 2 sides for $6. I didn't go often but it was nice to have there and it was always great when I did.

Went yesterday and they re-did the meal style so that instead of any meat + side, you pay for the chicken based on what item it is and you have to get the sides separate. So my 6 savory-style wings and a side of mashed taters (which also seemed reduced in size from previous visits) came out to $9. And they never have the mozz sticks anymore either. So I probably won't be getting stuff from there anymore.

SUCCESS?!?!
Well, the difference I would think is that in the first example, you still get to do the cheating for a game before you get banned, right? In this new method, players are actively punished that game, and I would imagine that if you create a new acct, you will continue to use cheats, which will then flag you and put you back into this mode again. So it seems like it perpetually punishes cheaters at that moment, rather than after the fact.

So more like
> Player cheats
> can't see anyone
>makes new acct with cheats
> still can't see anyone

I won't hold the max thing against ayton because it's sarver specifically, who is widely reputed as a cheapass owner

I do think, however, that ayton is like right on the line of being a max-worthy player, not a slam dunk. The biggest knock I've always heard on them is that he plays kind of soft inside. I paid extra attention to him most of this year because I had him in fantasy (I traded him), and he just had too many games of like...12 pts and 6 rebs. I know those stats don't tell the whole story but like, it's evidence.

I get that trae had a bad postseason, but I don't believe that a 4-7 game series against a single team should have more weight than what a guy does in the regular season. It seems ridiculous to me that trae is the problem after averaging 28+ PPG and almost 10 APG in the regular season, esp when capela missed most of the series and collins played down a level from where he usually does. Any team would have problems when their #2 barely plays and your #3 struggles.

And I'm not convinced it's any more difficult to build around trae than it is any of the guys changmas mentioned. SGA is kind of TBD I suppose, but let's not act like the suns were going anywhere until Chris Paul showed up; he's the driver of that team, not ayton, ayton isn't even the 2nd best player on his team imo, I don't think that qualifies as "building around him." MPJ same deal, and he's hurt all the time to boot.
