Huge fight between LeBron and Isaiah Stewart almost broke out at Little Caesar's Arena in Detroit

A lot of blood on the floor from a blatant elbow dished out by LeBron

Nice thread!!!!

I think last year was a breath of fresh air to have two new teams in teh finals and a new winner.

Although I am a Warriors fan I am super surprised at the depth they have shown this year. They are looking dangerous.

Also the Suns! Were great last year but they have won 12 in a row, holy shit!


Lakers are looking pretty mediocre, even with Lebron, lets see if they can turn it around.

I think the LAL will turn it around, but by how much? I have no idea. Each win I’ve seen hasn’t been convincing in the slightest, but a win’s a win regardless. Also, I have no fucking idea why Fizdale became our assistant coach other than being LeBron’s boy. His work with the Knicks was pitiful and should be blackballed from the NBA just like Luke Walton should be tbh. Two horrendous coaches. Luke got fired yesterday as well

Voted the Nets in the poll. I feel like if Harden can get his game to a higher level as the year goes on, that team is going to be really hard to beat in a 7 game series. Aldridge has been playing surprisingly well for them this year too.

Only teams to take seriously for a serious title run are bucks, heat, nets, and lakers. Heat develop players, Bucks starting point is focusing on the MVP, Nets are the other eastern choice, lakers are still there in the title talk, LeBron responds to fights, injuries etc. beautifully, the lakers are structured for a deep playoff run.

Was his mom accompanying by any chance ? :messenger_grinning_sweat:
There was a woman with him, but I have no idea if it was his mother. She looked relatively young.
I didn't recognize him at first, as he was wearing a hat and mask, but my friend pointed him out and compared his tattoos to an online photo, to confirm it was indeed him.

Mavs paid more for Bullock than Caruso. MBT are fucking idiots.
Yea, it makes no sense. Why would you pass on an athletic defensive stalwart who can run your offense and hit shots when open in crucial games? I don't know the Mavs situation and how they went about their signings but it's clear that the Lakers fucked up by not locking down Caruso. Proven champion, works well with the team, extremely pesky defender who can put on the clamps, larger build type guard who can present problems when teams relax...It's the same thing this year with Caruso as it was with Dwight last year when they didn't re-sign him. Why would you let go of players who can defend at an elite level? It just makes zero sense

Dwight Howard and McGee piss me off when they made peanuts on the Lakers. Mavs went with WCS and then resigned him at almost double what Howard made/makes. Fuck the MBT.

Always cool to see someone great in person !
I jokingly asked about his mom because she's quite the milf :
