In Topic: **NBA THREAD** Playoffs start Saturday (not for the Knicks)

Yesterday, 12:18 PM

Not much to look forward to as a Nuggets fan for the near future, as they are above the through next year and have a ####ty team. But, Kenneth Faried really showed something in the second half of the season. From the All Star Game, he averaged 18.8 points and 10.1 rebounds with a .584 TS% (and 70% from the line!). If his improvements hold into next season, the Nuggies might just be able to sneak into the playoffs next year to get swept in four games. Long live Brian Shaw.

Bizarre rockets game. Blew a 15 point lead. Down 11 with five minutes to go. Win by 5.

 

Against a Nuggets team that is a Kenneth Faried injury away from being the 76ers.


In Topic: Which comedians to see?

03 April 2014 - 10:08 AM

Just saw Anthony Jeselnik for the first time, worth every penny if you like his style (I do, maybe my current favorite comedian at the moment). Going to Aziz in May, one of my/wife's favorites on XM, hope he's almost as good as Jeselnik. Wife wanted to see Amy Schumer, just missed her show though because of the night she was in town here.

 

Jeselnik is the only comedian I have ever been disappointed with live. I love his comedy, but I saw him a year or so ago soon after Comedy Central premiered one of his specials, and probably half of his jokes were from that, with another quarter of his jokes from various other things I've seen or heard from him. Most of his jokes are one liners or very short stories, so I see why he reuses jokes, but it was disappointing.

As I was looking up assist totals something really popped out at me.

 

Lebron James has 5754 assists, placing him at 36th all time. By the end of next year he'll have somewhere near 6300-6400, putting him somewhere around 25th next year (Chris Paul and Kobe will both probably move up the list with him). In 5 years he'll have about 8500 (obviously assuming he keeps near his current pace), placing him somewhere in the top 10 (depending on Chris Paul and Andre Miller). In 8 years he could have over 10,000 assists placing him possibly in the top 3 all time, with some chance to pass Kidd at 12,091 by the end of his career.

 

At the same time, he is currently 33rd all time in scoring with 22,952 points. By the end of next year he should have around 25,000 points, putting him near the top 25 all time (depending on Allen and Carter). In two years, he'll should about 27,000 points placing him near the top 12 (depending on if Duncan, Pierce and Garnett are playing). In 5 years he could get to somewhere near 31,000 to 32,000 (top 5 or 6 all time, depending on Dirk). And in 8 years he could be somewhere in the Kobe-Malone-Kareem grouping for top scorers ever.

 

Its possible, if somewhat unlikely, that he could end up as the top scorer of all time and 2nd in assists.

Six players from the 1999 NBA Draft are still in the Assosciation...

Shawn Marion
Elton Brand
Andre Miller
Jason Terry
Andrei Kirilenko
Manu Ginobili

Is it a slam dunk that Ginobili had the best career? If so, which player had the second best? :dunno:

 

Ginobili by a landslide. Marion, Miller and Brand would all be close for 2nd for me.

 

I'd go:

Ginobili

Marion

Brand (best peak, worst 2nd half of career)

Miller (9th all time in assists, has a chance to pass Payton and Robertson for 7th)

Terry

Kirilenko

 

Player comparison.
