Given we originally drafted him, I liken to a Ross Lyon return if it eventuates. Always wary of picking up someone after knee surgery.

Reggie Miller “Beverley straight levelled Ayton”. Reggie pls.

Beverley suspended 3 games. Thug peternorth Will you be donating?


I get a kick out of watching Shannon sharpe.

Pretty much.

Warriors could use a boost on defense if Simmons could do what he did against the 76ers in a regular basis and leave the shooting to the others then he’ll be fine.

Right now it is not really working out in Brooklyn.

They are only 3 games behind 2nd place and irving was banned, Simmons looks great and does things that don't show up on the box score, kd will get better. The roster is decent

What does Simmons do that doesn't show up on stats sheet? He's had 2-3 good games.

Irving either does things to get himself missing games or gets injured.

Durant is averaging 28/6/5. He doesn't have that much improvement left in him.

Nets have shown very little to have confidence in their team. Very little to show they can win now.

Playmaking. Defence. Etc.

Simmons is coming off injury and missing time. Irving is just back and kd hasn't been shooting it much recently.

Give them a block of 20 odd games before same nets are rubbish imo.

They have decent role players too in oneale. Yuta. Curry. Claxton. Etc. And could be active trade wise.

If paddy mills pulls the finger out that's help too

It’s a tad harsh to swallow at times. Particularly against Miami where we had more attempts in the paint but zero whistles. Reverse Western Bulldogs

Not even Richmond is this victimised peternorth

I present for your catharsis, a list of the NBA's five most victimised teams. If you're on this list, you're not imagining it.



View attachment 1560213

We are last in free throw attempts, last in foul differential (4.8, second being 3.1) and last in free throw differential (8.1 per game, second is 5.7 and third is 4.7). We are first in opponents free throws and first in number of fouls.

Not really where you want to be.

The roster is garbage they ain't beating celtics or bucks in a 7 game series.

I don't think they can beat the Cavs either tbh.

I guess we should be chuffed that the NBA has been sniffing around the AFL in regards to equalisation measures

But not like we need a bad whistle when the defense has been taking care of it just fine

A couple of additional notes - you're 29th in turnover percentage - which is not unusual for you guys, given your high-assist style - and you're 25th in defensive rebounding percentage, which is a big downtick from 2nd last season.

The upshot of it is that you're working with five less possessions per game than your opponents. Very difficult to out-execute teams to the degree that can overcome giving up that many extra possessions.

Of course all this comes with a giant asterisk. Your starting five is still kicking bottom, even with Klay's rustiness. It's fixable.

Yeah, I still have hope. Foul counts tend to work out over a season (or at least improve on the ridiculous levels at the moment). Sending teams to the free throw line kills our defense and limits our ability to get into transition.

Biggest worry is that Steph will likely miss some games and we need to be building a decent record while he's playing to absorb that.

Yeah, you guys starting 18-2 last season was an underrated component towards eventually winning the championship.

Gave Kerr the luxury of essentially treating the back half of the regular season as a warm up for the playoffs.

Yep, the ball club has a great culture. I am confident they'll turn it around.

I don't think this years Warriors will beat the Celtics or Bucks in a 7 game series unless some sort of trade happens.
