NBA 2k20 cover released

Well folks, it's your favorite time of year - that's right, it's time for Caustic's second annual mock draft! Putting it in spoilers here as to not clutter up the thread - Go Nets. 

Well, bye.

I see Cus Cries is losing to the Bucks 40-23. i'd like to hear more about how great positionless basketball is or about Taco Fall's Hall of Fame career.

funny thing is Bucks aren't even using Giannis

🤣

yeah, i'll give them credit. didn't watch the game, but nice comeback.

guess it just means Sixers are only legit team in the East

I actually really appreciate your unwavering support of 76ers and hate of Celtics modogg.  It makes the board better having someone who has that passion.  I'm just an NBA fan in general, other than the Magic.

Wow, they could have three firsts.  Dubs pick unlikely to convey I think, but there’s a chance.

how you get that sixers pick from LAC?

Thought it was interesting that Woj said on his pod today that he didn’t think the Warriors had any chance at the playoffs this year. But then he turned around and said he thought the Kings would still compete for a spot even after their start, so he’s clearly delusional.

That was a draft day trade I think. Dealt pick 27 to LAC for the Philly pick.

Former NBA player Jim Farmer arrested in sex sting involving underage teens

Played at Alabama. Drafted by the Mavericks in '87, bounced around for a few years.

Everyone should have known just looking at that picture.

You don’t know how much more time you can give a guy than 2 years? Lol 

 

He’s been more than a middling bench player so far. It’s super early but he’s been one of the best players on the court when he’s been out there. 

Dude was a colossal train wreck, the likes of which had never in the history of the NBA been seen before.  Yeah, unless the Sixers were complicit in Fultz, quite literally, forgetting how to shoot a basketball then I’m going to give them a pass for “giving up on him.”

And we’ll agree to disagree on him being one of the best players on the court thus far this year.

So I've watched 2 Charlotte games do far(I know, why would I put myself through that. They just happened to be televised here.) Rozier has not looked good AT ALL, definitely seeing less of the 2018 Scary Terry and more of the gross 2019 Terry. Not that a lot of peopled loved it but that contract could end up being even more turrible than expected :oldunsure:

Terry the Tank Commander

Bad contract considering how D Graham has looked. Could have rolled with Graham as the starter, signed a cheap backup, and not committed to 3 years at that price. But, this is MJ we are talking about, so. :shrug:

Kings at 0-5. 

Dedmon (who is in Year 1 of a 3/40 deal) has already been passed by Richaun Holmes (2yr/10m) in the middle.

------------------

Broken left hand for Curry.

Was going to say that any Steph Curry team certainly has a chance at the playoffs but...

the general fragility of that team definitely made me take the under.

they should just shut down draymond and use the whole season as a Rio Grande like experiment.

In my decades of being a Kings fan this is by far the most disappointing start ever. Apart from Holmes, who has been fantastic, every other player has been substantially worse than they were last year and Luke Walton clearly has no idea what he’s doing. They bear zero resemblance to the team that took the court last year. Even Fox is playing like a guy who is either exhausted or spent all offseason reading his own press.

oh right, the kabengele deal (or whatever that FSU dude's name is).

you will know that name well before all is said & done. he'll be a solid pro for years once they work him in. if the Celtics had him, he'd be getting 20+ mins a game already

I guess the time clock is supposed to be some quirky motivational thing.  Who knows?  I won't defend it.  Surprised that got past the leadership committee.

So Matheise Thybulle leads the league in steals and deflections. I listen to 2 NBA podcasts who list 7-8 potential rookie of the year applicants, and not one mention of Thybulle.

I get the ESPN generation is all dunks and high scores, but can we really justify not even considering Thybulle as ROY if he leads the entire league in a few categories?

Let him just play man. ROtY is always about points and offensive presence. Thybulle is contributing mostly on defense right now which is awesome to see. Unless he starts averaging 15-20 a game to go with it though, he ain't winning.

i got Thybulle down fine. Give it another month before i get the 1st name. Must have been a real pain in the ### in elementary school either misspelling his name or teachers mis-pronouncing it

Overall Walton seems like a very solid top assistant, but the jury is definitely still out on him as a head coach.  His rotations can be baffling at times.

You need to find more/better podcasts then.  Thybulle was heavily discussed as a rookie to watch.  ??  He was often listed as one of the best defenders to enter the draft.  I don't believe anybody was or is sleeping on him (besides maybe ESPN, couldn't say either way there).

Is this for real?   Its 153-152 Rockets over Wizards with a minute left in regulation?

This may seem like a hot take, but tonight Jimmy Butler was almost as impressive as James Hardin was last night.  Jimmy G Buckets had 5 points to Hardin's 59.

Jimmy Butler scored 5 points against the Hawks but had a +/- of +21

Herro, Nunn, Butler, etc....Heat got some players boys

Butler did have 9 rebounds, 11 assists and 6 steals.

The real story is rookies Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro who have combined for 194 points this season. The only pair of rookie teammates with more points through the team's first 5 games of a season were Wilt Chamberlain and Joe Ruklick in 1959. Wilt accounted for 182 of the duo's 196 points. @EliasSports

Why are all these fans so excited about a ##### slapping comp by KAT and Joel. KAT suckered him in a mile away you could see it. Embiid needs to control his emotions better. You could see Horford was more upset with Embiid than anything. I think one of the big reasons he was brought in was to help get Embiid to Mature. 

Embiid doing all this talking yet is either injured or MIA during the playoffs. Dude you've missed almost 2 1/2 seasons of your 5 yr career. You haven't done #### yet and if it wasn't for Butler your team would've been one and done vs the Nets 

Also such a ##### move by Simmons with the choke hold. He's lucky he wasn't fined or suspended. Back in the 90s next time he drives to the lane he'd have been getting a nice clothes line. But that's typical of a lot of NBA players today. A bunch of softies. That was barely a brawl Wednesday night. That was like in hockey where the two teams huddle around the goalie and you have guys just hugging each other. At worse the two guys are thrown in the box for instigating or roughing. Someone bring Artest in to show these clowns how to fight. 

This is a fight in the NBA

This was definitely a fight

Bad Boy Pistons and Bulls fighting

Pitcher Kyle Farnsworth shows the basics and good form of a take down and ground a pound

These are fights. That was just two Gus hugging it out

I’d say the jury has returned a verdict on Walton.

I've noticed this too and it's fantastic. Guys need to just start jumping out if the way to give the other guy the TO still.

I don't think a shot-clock violation actually counts as an individual turnover, but its a game the players like to play anyway.

Good god Harden just looks off.  He just looks slower and he's not getting a lot of lift on his shots.  It's certainly not deterring him from shooting though.  I can't tell if he's not in peak shape or if there is something more.
