    END OF AN ERA_ LeBron, Warriors, Durant.. (over)

    .. none of them will ever win again.

    Jokic = new 'singular force' superstar, Celtics the new Warriors.

    .. possibly Lakers could make deep run next season when Kyrie joins them this summer, but still uphill fight with all the fresh and hungry legs against them.

    Been saying this. Denver had a very clear path in the West. Beware of the AGING big-name athlete.

    Since when is saying someone won't win another championship a bold prediction?

    Especially when that someone is well into their 30's and on the downside of their career.

    Winning championships is difficult, KD might not have ever got one even in his prime if not for joining a stacked roster.

    These SBR cornballs acting like they have hot takes, when the reality is they're just looking for low hanging fruit.

    You've been saying Kyrie will join the Lakers next summer and make a deep run?

    Wow, you're as dumb as the OP then.

    Who would of ever thought someone could actually think with the mind, then in a mean disrespectful manner write it down in words?? Fk this world is advanced. Only problem is instead of constructed criticism it's spewed h8, lies, and unintelligence.

    Veri, when you're working on your baseball model:

    1) How much do you evaluate Pitcher: True Value vs Name Recognition?

    2) And: How efficient do you find the MLB lines to be?

    I'd imagine that the MLB sides get hammered out to a pretty accurate line. And I'd think that Young Starting pitchers w/o a lot of Big-League data would generally be under-rated.

    1) How much do you evaluate Pitcher: True Value vs Name Recognition? no more than 1.3-era gap starter-vs-starter, pitching is mabye 40% weight ... no bias in a name so=na

    2) And: How efficient do you find the MLB lines to be? efficient but that doesn't always mean correct

    I'd imagine that the MLB sides get hammered out to a pretty accurate line. And I'd think that Young Starting pitchers w/o a lot of Big-League data would generally be under-rated.[/QUOTE] I agree good analogy

    +basically look for teams with better record as in eye catch differential try not to lay more than -160
    +bias dogs / stats are even across the board including record where you are getting +ev
    formulate to keep more than half picks are home teams cause these are solid league trends, third dogs purposely at least till your playing with houses money(if you have to much going in something doesnt seem correct your overthinking the shit, start over and ks=keep it simple , volume can have music to it)
    +totals/ must be a 1 run advantage(ov-un either way), so you trust the processes. If you cant seem to get ahead of the house pick your favorite play and keep it 2 one pick, just bet overs, or just bet unders whatever is a preference

    There were juicy rumors going around about six months ago that LB wants to play a season with Bronnie.
    LB has a lot clout in the NBA, he has the reach to make that happen, even though there are many who are afraid to put their name to it that say Bronnie is not NBA ready.

    ^
    I say rumor whenever I write what I heard and didn't back it up with fact.
    I'll never pass off opinions, or unchecked scuttlebutt as fact, it's just not ethical.

    I'm sure Daddy James said it, I just don't have the facts to prove it, and quite frankly I'm well aware that search engines are our friends, I really don't have the need to research it, which I probably could have done in the less than two minutes it took me to write this post.

    Speaking of players older than dirt, I am pretty sure this is the end of the Udonis Haslem era too.

    Full respect to Lebron. Respect to him on this front:

    *Guy enters the league with massive expectations.

    Shows signs. Steps up his game. The one that sticks out to me is the early performance vs a veteran Pistons team, amazing.

    Works on his games. Shores up some weaknesses. Similar to Magic Johnson tightening up his perimeter game.

    Reportedly spends $1Mill per year on personal training staff just to get his body ready. Guy has been a great pro. Can't say I'm pulling for him, but have to give him respect.

    Ya notice every new generation of NBA players every 5-10 years are more gansta, thugish and just straight up stupid?

    Ja Morant flashing gang signs and guns is just mind boggling

    Maybe Lebron, KD and Step aren't so bad after all. We may miss them

    I was never a James hater.
    I'm not fond of his flopping, and whining, but than again, many of them do that.
    Like Marcus Smart for example.

    There aren't too many who enter the league as a youth with Great Expectations. And then meet or exceed those lofty expectations.

    I have to put Lebron in that category. He knows his legacy in the league. The baseball comparison that comes to mind = Ken Griffey Jr. Came into the league w/ big expectations, even a Sr name to match. Met or exceeded those expectations...and I know Lebron is better (than Ken Jr).

    I don't even know what you call these Celtics... they play very inconsistent. Udoka got them to play better. They don't even care what Mazzulla says. No response. I don't even think that group of players respect Mazzulla. I think Stevens has to fire him if they don't win a championship this year.

    Shot, you summarize my thoughts on the Celts.

    Who TF is Mazzulla? And why would these top-players care about him?

    First off, there is the $$-gap. And then there's the respect. If people told me that Horford is the clubhouse leader b/c of his tenure and stature...I'd believe it.

    But thinking that Mazzulla is going to light a fire under these guys? Can't see it. Maybe Stevens comes back down after this year to HC.
