I’ve met Craig Jr a few times through work with mutual colleagues and while not directly working with him I know he’s busted his ass to not use his fathers fame for his career. He’s paid dues. Not sure what the beef was about but nice rebuttal from sister.

Houston has certainly improved and can play more versatile lineups but they're not going to get those same open 3s against a locked in Warriors team. Plus, Harden always has 2-3 terrible games in the playoffs.



Maybe having Paul there will help some of those bad playoff games?

Yeah Paul isn't a career choke artist in the playoffs or anything.

Plenty of redemption stories in the NBA and playoffs, the most recent being Golden State choking away a 3-1 lead on the Cavs, only to follow up the next year with a title.

You also have Paul Pierce. A guy that allows himself to get ejected from a key playoff game early in his career and then finds individual playoff success prior to Garnett joining the team and, of course, afterwards.

Dear Goodness. :shock: Rookie of the Year. Watching Tatum and now Kyrie more closely, I just want to build an NBA team full of former Duke players.

Dont forget Ben Simmons. The rookies this year have been pretty good considering Ball and Fultz have been busts so far.

Simmons rookie of the year award should have an asterisk. Call it the Blake Griffin.

He got to be around the team and practice with them at close or at full strength for the final half of the season last year. I think that counts for something. He would have won it last year anyway though.
