Spurs drop out of the Playoffs, beat the odds to win the lottery, get the next Tim Duncan, begin another two decades of being an elite team. You heard it here first.

Unfortunate for Butler, only good thing to come out of this are the Thibs memes being brought out again.

Definitely promising. Whenever he does come back, hopefully he doesn't have lingering issues, a la Derrick Rose. Obviously it's not as serious as Rose's worst injuries, at least with that prognosis, but I'd hate to see another star's career derailed.

I guess it depends on the surgery he has, but I would not recommend the "quick snip" method like Brandon Roy and had. Artest had it too but he was at the end of his career. So many years left for Butler, no need to mortgage the future for the present

tbf to Roy he already had 3-4 knee surgeries even before he reached the NBA, it was an accumulation of those ‘quick snips’ rather than the method of partial/total removal of the meniscus.

Chris Paul had an entire meniscus removed at a younger age than Butler yet Paul is still playing well today despite only having one and a half knee.

If the report is true that Butler will be back this season he definitely opted to have the quick snip and will have the damaged part of the meniscus removed rather than have it repaired like Westbrook and Blake Griffin did.



EDIT: turns out the source of that report about Butler came from himself loool, telling people that he’ll be back just in time for the playoffs. He hasn't even taken a MRI yet to know the severity of his meniscus tear.

It's getting to the point where it's basically impossible to give him the benefit of the doubt. Much as the league started taking action against Bruce Bowen a decade ago, I think they need to do something here. There's playing physical, which is fine, and then there's playing dirty, which isn't. Sliding a foot under someone who's landing, tripping people and very blatantly collapsing on top of them in a way that's intended to cause further injury is not basketball.

Seems he's trying to paint Westbrook as a crybaby. I've also seen suggestions that Thunder fans are hypocrites, due to past incidents involving Steven Adams and Nick Collison. Thing is, even if that's true, none of that changes Zaza's history of questionable and blatantly dirty moments, and this was the latest in a long line of said questionable and blatantly dirty moments. Whataboutism doesn't change anything; the league needs to do something.

I feel like he does something like this every time he plays OKC. Last time he nearly took out Paul George's legs with a dangerous flop.

Then there was that time he slapped Westbrook in the face whilst fouling him, before standing over him like the fake tough guy he is.

I just saw the video and that makes me a little mad. I mean, it's one thing to accidentally hurt someone but to go out and try to get an edge by injuring an opponent is not right. You are putting someone else through pain and potentially taking money out of their wallet for your own gain. Also, how much of a prick must you be to call yourself a champion if you took out the competition not by skill or talent but by brute force

Wade played good for the night but looks damn slow footed. Explosiveness is entirely missing now. His plays still isolate the teammates and prefers one on one bball, this wasn't problem when he had athleticism but now with efficiency down in drain, just isn't a good basketball he plays. Not surprising LBJ sent him home packing.

Wade already had a meniscus removed during college, so no, the 28 y.o. Butler won’t have an injury record like the 20 y.o. Wade had.

I mean, it's the unwritten rule and C-Webb has to know that, but he's got a point. Also, it does come across as being petulant on Clarkson's part, much like it was when Lillard slapped the ball out of CP3's hands a few weeks back. You can be in the right, and still end up looking like you're in the wrong.

Exactly, if you keep playing the other team has every right to do so. If you stop playing defense hoping the other team runs the clock out, then it would be a dick move

I am not with Clarkson on this, but let's not act out like Saric did the right thing. He had no reason to be hit with a ball but he wasn't really a home boy on this play.
Even Embiid's face was "wtf, not cool dude" after the dunk. Then the ball hit Saric and he had to defend his teammate, but his first reaction tells everything.

agree with this. But then again, it's their possession, if you dont want them to score on you then play defense.

If the Cavs hadn't pressed, Saric and the 76ers probably would've dribbled it out as teams normally do. If you're going to play to the final buzzer, regardless of the score, you can't get upset if the other team does the same. That's not to say it's great judgement on Saric's part, but if the other team isn't raising the white flag, there's no surrender to accept.

Watching the Cavs vs Nuggets and Jesus, Larry is just murdering Plumlee.

He has 2 surefire highlight dunks already.

I don't find Lavar jokes fun anymore tbh. Too much is made out of this Lavar the nobody. There have been much much worse NBA family influence in the past that went shhh.

Jokes aside, Lavar took his kids to euro lithuanian or some ting, have his kids entered sort of minor pro league for youth. Lamelo seemingly is struggling greatly while Liangelo is decent but shitty on defense. Not sure they're NBA materials at this moment. I am thinking no based on vid I saw.
