    Smartfood for Thought: What do you want to do with Marcus Smart after this year?

    Next year will be Marcus's 8th season in the NBA, where he has averaged 30 minutes a season playing a fairly aggressive brand of basketball that is hard on his body. What reasonable expectation can we have that he can "get back his defensive chops?" My concern is that we've seen the best of...

    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    This would be an interesting take if anyone in this thread was advocating what you suggest, but since no one has, it's rather lame. In case you haven't been following, the the conversation that the majority of us are having is between guys who think RL already has a plus NBA skill and projects...

    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    Yes, it's a small sample size, but your suggestion that if he had hit one or two more 3 pointers, it would "elevate his percentages" is uninspiring. One can flip your enthusiasm on its head and say "if he had just missed 1 or 2 more 3 pointers or missed 7 more shots" he's be even more god...

    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    What are Brad and ET gonna say, he sucks? Right now, he's a lousy NBA basketball player who has had a string of bad luck with injuries, so there is still a chance. Almost every part of his game is well below NBA standards. He's defense is average...although people can quibble. He's the...

    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    Completely and totally agree. I'm hopeful he develops into a meaningful, 20 minute + player per game. Just don't think he's remotely there yet.

    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    Friends, Romeo-lovers, Greenteamers, I come to bury Romeo, not to praise him. First, I respect the hell out of the basketball knowledge of a bunch of posters here (benhogan, lovegtm, HRB, etc.). That said, right now, Romeo Langford is not a very good basketball player. He cannot shoot for his...

    2020-2021 NBA Game Thread

    Kawhi's shot to get Toronto into the finals jumps to mind. Game 7, 4.2 seconds left, guarded by Simmons and Embid, lets it fly from deep in the corner falling toward the baseline. View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChT3ewZXTfM

    Cade to Black: 2021 NBA Draft Thread

    Watched him play about half a dozen games when he was at Rivers (my son played against him at Nobles). Crazy to see the athleticism at that level, even when he didn't play well, it was so striking. From all accounts I heard (mostly 3rd hand), he was a good kid with no interest in anything...

    Gonzaga snags the #1 HS recruit in the country. 7-1" center Chet Holmgren from Minnesota (he knows Suggs well). He chose Gonzaga over Georgetown, Memphis, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina and Ohio State...

    Brian Scalabrine is Better at Basketball Than You

    I went to law school with former Patriots Defensive End Garin Veris. Really a very nice guy and it was always a kick to see him drive into the law school parking lot in his stretch Mercedes just before class. Anyway, Veris had lost some weight from his playing days, but he was still a physical...

    RIP Johnny Pierson

    I too grew up on Fred and Johnny and they were always in sync, a sublime pairing. Interesting side note: My father was in the furniture business for the longest of time and attended the same conventions in North Carolina (High Point) every year and actually became friends with Johnny. They...
