I do, I comment wherever it interests me. But, if a certain person does tend to exaggerate more often, obviously more replies would be to that individual.

That statement about Tatum is an obvious exaggeration based on the minutes he's played and his actual production. I made a comment to Marco about it not being a cakewalk for the Warriors, because I also thought that was a slight exaggeration. He had no problem with my comment on the matter, and you shouldn't have a problem with my reply to NovU.

We are all big boys, he can handle himself. You don't need to come to the rescue.

There was no exaggeration. It's just his brain farting as usual. Please don't quote him in the future bud so I don't need to respond to immature stalking. Tatum outplayed his expectation. That is a fact. His ws48 is near .150 in a lot of pt which means he contributed to a very winning cause in significant way this year. Nobody saw this coming even though he was known to be NBA ready. Practically he replaced Jae Crowder's role in his very rookie season very successfully.

He's on the floor at the end of every game. Of course he is contributing in that regard, he is the primary benefactor to the Hayward injury.

In his minutes, his production is about right based on being the #3 pick in the NBA draft.

And again, please stop with the stalker thing. You are not special, I comment on all sorts of things from many different users (see above). Numerous times I've commented on Air Gordon, Lamrock, Shadowgrin, Sauru, etc. The stalker thing needs to stop, because again it's completely unfounded.

Please try to stay on topic instead of talking like that.

I actually couldn't stop crying about it. :mrgreen:

About Tatum, I do feel like his impact went beyond traditional scores. I was mostly impressed with his all-around defense. I feel like most rookies with defensive potential try to go for the steal or the spectacular block just to make a top 5 or whatever. But Tatum was all about making the right defensive call. And to top that on offense, he was making almost half of his 3-pointers! I haven't watched the last couple of games closely so that is why I talk in past tense, lol.

About Warriors, It might not be an easy cake and they might not even win the title but I do believe they are keeping the best version of themselves for the playoffs.

Ha!

And that's what has impressed me the most, his discipline on defense, and also his clutch shooting at the end of games. A lot of poise from him.

Really? the krause rebuild was terrible. it was a true bottom out which eventually lead to overpaying leftovers to put on a bulls uniform.

while a 3rd of the league tanks, i'll take the bulls winning a few games and large part due to nwaba, dunn, lavine, markkanen, portis. that's really a great sign for the rebuild. the nba is somehow letting Management getting away with sitting out 2 starters anyway.

If the league were truly concerned about tanking, they'd have done something significant a lot sooner. I guess to be fair, there is a larger than usual number of...let's say "contenders", in the race this year.
