  • I can’t wait to check out this new bar. I just envision it like Cheers but its you guys are just sitting at the bar slapping backs and yelling about whatever poll was up at that moment.

  • Great pod fellas…my additions to the hall of lame are:

    1. Coach’s challenges….I think I’ve become the old man that yells at cloud about replay. It’s kind of wild that they actually think a system that has an insane amount of conflict of interest for the officials would actually work.

    Speaking of incompetent officiating….

    2. The James Harden/Trae Young 3 point shot flop. This is my personal WORST part of NBA basketball. A rip through is one thing. A leap into the defender that is trying to get through a screen when you definitely would have no intention to shoot from that spot in any situation is so much worse. I can’t believe officials fall for this. Like I actually don’t know how these refs watch those attempts and think they are a genuine attempt to shoot the basketball.

    Any updated thoughts on the coaches challenges and if you like them? If you’ve talked about this recently and I missed it disregard!

  • For starters I think it should be legal, nay encouraged, to throw feces at officials. Second:

    Jamal Murray is quietly emerging from his slump and putting up comparable numbers with other top young point guards:

    Jamal Murray’s eFG is .517
    DeAaron Fox: .508
    Trae Young: .518
    SGA: .514
    D’Angelo Russell: .516

    While eFG isn’t the end all be all of statistics, he’s improving as a playmaker and defender and he’s putting up comparable rate statistics to other young point guards all while being the second most important player on a team that’s competing for a top playoff seed. He needs to do this while fitting into a system whereas other young point guards can be a bit more selfish in offensive approach. Not necessarily ball hogs, but looking to score for themselves rather than fitting within a system and creating for others. Could it be possible that we underrate Jamal Murray or at the very least underappreciate Jamal Murray?
