Worst comes worst, this might just become Harden's year. He'll not only win the season MVP but finals MVP as well. He'll be remembered better player than his ex mates Durant and Westy.

For Curry, I honestly don't know what's worse, his knee or ankle. Hopefully it's just sprain but doesn't sound good they're calling it serious even before the MRI result.

That could've happened to anyone. I don't think that injury was caused by JaVale's clumsiness.

I bet Shaq has an unjustified joy after what happened.

Warriors did have success with a clumsy bigman named Zaza. Just ask Kawhi or Westbrook.

I kind of viewed this as a witty remark, but didn't realize he's never had a full season/how many times he's fallen a few games short; by far has to be one of the most consistent, heavy-minute guys to never sustain a major injury but not play all 82.

Indeed. He's been very durable, but either through rest or minor injuries where he's missed a few games, he's never played in every single game as yet. I'd still rank A.C. Green, Karl Malone, and John Stockton ahead of him on the Ironman chart. Even MJ had nine seasons where he played 82 games, and a couple more where he played 80 or 81. LeBron has come close a couple of times though, with 80 games in 2005, and 81 games in 2009.

How about Willis Kevin? He played till age of 44. That's a lot of era: Moses Malone, Bird, Jordan, Shaq, Kobe, LeBron.

None of the players mentioned even played 40 mpg for the first 5 seasons of their career compared to someone who came out of HS straight to the NBA.
AC Green's minutes are a joke, same with Willis. A joke to be even considering them for 'Ironman' diecussions.
Only one comparable or even better than LeGOAT is Karl Malone. Stockton was durable but not on the same level as those two.

Well, A.C. Green remained abstinent throughout his NBA career. Iron willpower, if nothing else.

Alrighty then. Let's see any of those ironman scores a single point at age of 44. Well, I am waiting.

LeQueen hasn't even hit 34 in age and in constant maintenance mode. Good enough for my plasticman chart and I'm a generous man. I feed homeless cats.

Kemba Walker became the Hornets' all-time leading scorer, edging out Dell Curry. At first I was a little surprised, but then I remembered that in the grand scheme of things, players like Alonzo Mourning, Larry Johnson, and Glen Rice didn't have particularly long tenures with the team, while Muggsy Bogues wasn't a prolific scorer.

When Charlotte rebranded as the Hornets again, did they acquire all team and player records from New Orleans?

Hornets are still unable to win. That MKG pick really turned out to be a dud. Batum for whatever reason plays like spoiled milk even though he is still fairly young.

Karl Towns scores 56 points. Insane. He's legitimately a great player at age of 22, better than Kevin Garnett at same age. I start to wonder, if he'll end up being a better big than Anthony Davis.

They got the team history prior to the 2002-2003 season, while also retaining their history as the Bobcats (and of course, their history since becoming the Hornets again). The Pelicans retain the history of the Hornets while they were in New Orleans, so their lineage now runs from 2002 to the present.

It's a shame that the bobcats basically get wiped from the history books like this as they probably won't acknowledge Gerald Wallace as an all time great in hornets history.

Also, because of the overlap, the New Orleans hornets history won't really be celebrated by the pelicans either. They're probably not going to celebrate/retire Chris Paul as he was technically a hornet

But his tenure with the Hornets was entirely in New Orleans, which is still part of the Pelicans' history. That does indeed make things confusing.

Just saw the Bucks-Warriors game from the other day, I could only imagine what kind of a player McGee would have turned out to be in his prime if he played with Chris Paul. How Paul made Tyson Chandler, David West, Emeka Okafor, DeAndre Jordan, and Clint Capela look like all-star bigs.

All around sad situation. So far the news regarding McCaw has been positive. Scary none the less and hope he recovers fully and doesn't have any lingering issues. Back problems can be seriously scary. Felt really bad watching Vince's emotions. Classy move by Kerr trying to comfort him.
