• Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages. 1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0. I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.

2018-2109 RUUUUUUUUUUUUSSSSSSS

Gobert got the better of Jokic last night, their D was very impressive in the first half. Offense honestly looks awful and doesn't flow at all with IT out there, I'm afraid my suspicions of his effectiveness on this team are proving correct. Offense was bad in general in the first half doe.

Nuggets played pretty shitty and still almost came back from an 18 point deficit with 6 minutes left. Refs were pretty fucking weak too. Letting 37 year old Korver torch the shit out of them was really hard to watch...they are really fucking bad at closing out on shooters in the corner.

Talk of any player other than Mr. Antetokoumnpo as MVP must cease. Giannis averages 27, 12, and 6 as the leader of a team that is, statistically, historically good.

Whoa, you mean the guy who has been out for almost a year due to injury has struggled in his first 7 games back? No, way.

If the Nuggets want Thomas ready for the playoffs, now is the time to play him.

THANK YOU Dermott McHeshi
Could the ErRRRRrRZzZ be run any worse? LeBron gets handed to them.... and they surround him with total garbage like JaVale McGee, Lance, Beasley. The AD trade backfires. All the young guys except Ingram have regressed/gotten hurt.

Don't worry -- they have Magic and Rob Pelenka to save the day!
:laughing:

adopted RUSS for the remainder of the season since the erzzz were a massive disappointment. Not sure what team would have survived their injuries tho..
The main reason why the erzzz were not able to survive their injuries is because the roster they put around LeBron (Stephenson, Chandler, Pope, McGee, Rondo - who I think was a mixed bag) was not very good. Part of this was an intentional strategy by the erzzz to preserve cap space. They now head into the offseason with their young players intact and space for two max contracts. Despite the embarrassment of missing the playoffs, and potentially looking like a less desirable free agent destination, they did not sacrifice any long term assets.

no shooters and no defenders were signed. trading zubac was awful as he was their only big, but maglinka didn't see him coming back so they chunked him.

lame duck coaching staff fully of luke's weed az buddies and a strength coach who was the dyan cannon male version of the showtime era.

time to gut everything in the fo but jeanie wont. luke gone thats likely it.

I disagree with this. The FO had a clear plan: get LeBron and clear cap space for additional All-Star caliber players. They have done that and are still in a good position to get at least one high end player this summer. So unless they completely strike out this summer, they are still on track with their original plan.
