Does anyone else think the Wizards need to cut their losses with Scott Brooks sooner rather than later ?

Like Alan Richardson seems like a nice guy and probably a good assistant/development coach, but simply isn't good enough as the main guy.

Ditto Chicago with that Boylen potato farmer, but the Bulls have probably won a game or two more than expected at this point.

Have a couple of dollars on Siakam winning back to back MIP awards and think its a genuine prospect.
Def an interesting case study as far the award goes, wonder if he keeps balling out like he has if a narrative will build for it or voters will kind of dismiss it given he made a jump last season and it's generally not awarded for that type of leap he's making again. Certainly an argument to be made it's more impressive what he's doing now compared to the improvement he had last season.

Think Giannis MIP winning season is sort of the closest example for a possible Siakam win.

He came third in the season he made the initial jump (behind McCollum and Kemba) and then won the following season when he became a fringe MVP contender.

So if Siakam can hold his numbers I think he’ll be a genuine chance. Probably needs to make an All-NBA 2nd team and keep that 25ppg average but can’t see why he couldn’t do it. He was very, very good in the playoffs last year which could also hurt his chances.

The respect and love from the people of charlotte for walker was amazing. Something boston could learn from
Kyrie is going to have a warm welcome on his return game to Beantown with the Nets, thats is if he doesn't pull out due to 'hamstring' problems.

The Booing will be glorious, think I will watch that game with the surround sound on.

Honestly now hate Kyrie more than anyone who played for the Lakers, aside from LeBum Jane.

I could at least have a respect for the likes of Magic, Kareem, Shaq and Kobe, they went about it with a touch of class and respect for the opponents, Kyrie is arrogant and didn't have an ounce of respect for his teammates in Boston (esp Tatum) and Coach Stevens.

Kemba Walker is the complete opposite of Flat Earth weirdo as a leader and person. If tbere is anh justice in this world, he would start the All Star Game ahead of Kyrie Jerkoff, that would be sweet.

Someone here the other day said Siakam was overrated. That is textbook Nuffies on NBA Pages stuff, kid is a jet.
