    Lillard is out of his mind the last five games. Love that kid so much. Just a killer.

    Dame with another pedestrian 51 point 12 assist night against one of the leagues better defenses. Kid is on an all time heater. And winning. Not those fake Booker/Trae stats as they lose by 15

    Forbes claims the most valuable NBA franchise is....





    The NY Knicks!

    https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/...ed-team-forbes

    ... at 4.6 billion!!!



    I realize NY is a huge market, but lol at paying $4.6b for a perpetual failteam.

    Lakers are #2 at 4.4b.

    Clippers are worth 2.6b, meaning that despite overpaying, Balmer actually saw his investment appreciate. Nice to run so well even when you make dumb decisions.

    I think the Knicks and lakers would both go for well above that if sold. The Uber rich are getting richer and thatís the ultimate status symbol for the past 5 years.

    if the knicks were run by a competent person instead of a fucking mong like dolan they would be worth every bit of the $4.6B...

    I hate the knicks, but there is nothing in the NBA more electric than MSG when the knicks are good...only problem is, is that they haven't been good in damn near 30 years so everybody forgets that...

    think about the clippers and balmer...same sorta deal...

    It really is amazing how bad the Knicks consistently have been, even with spending a lot of money year after year.

    They just can't get out of their own way. It's just a mind-bogglingly trail of bad decisions for decades.

    They make the Mets look competent. I still like how the Mets releasing Justin Turner in 2014 instead of giving him the Major League minimum salary of $500k, because someone in upper management had an irrational hatred for him. Typical Mets, yet the Knicks are still 10x worse.

    The new All Star format is weird but at least it made the end of it exciting.

    Basically after the first 3 12-minute mini-games, they add all the scores together, then add 24 to the score of the leading team, and make that the "target" score for the game. The first team to that score wins. No clock in the 4th.

    So here the score after 3 was 133-124 Team Giannis ahead, so the target score is 157.

    Now it's 150-150 and there's actually some attempt to play defense to win it here.

    Also no intentional fouling or time clock stalling BS, so this type of thing should actually be considered for the normal game. Would make it way more exciting and not drag as much at the end.

    kinda tells you all you need to know that kyrie (not a fan, he's fucking nuts, but he was a big FA get talent-wise) and KD ended up in the BK and not playing in MSG...

    I get that playing in Brooklyn and playing in Newark are completely different beasts, but the fact that a franchise like the nets with zero history and it's own recent history of mega fail (the pierce/garnett deal and giving boston a complete rebuild) got over on the knicks is just fucking embarrassing...both these guys chose to turn down playing in the fucking mecca of basketball to go to Brooklyn...I mean kyrie a quasi-NYC guy growing up in north jersey...pre-2000 every NYC schoolboy basketball player dreamt of playing in the garden for the knicks...now, im sure they want zero part of it as long as dolan is at the helm...

    Yeah, I'm really not sure who is worse right now, Knicks with Dolan or Redskins with Snyder. They are definitely top-two in worst ownership. I can only imagine what it must be like working for those nutjobs.

    At least teams like Tampa in NFL just have absentee owners who kinda dont care. Sucks to be a fan of that, but still better than a Dolan or Snyder.

    yeah...even though vivek is complete garbage in sacto, sarver is a fucking mong in phoenix, and the wilpons keep royally fucking up the mets those three franchises don't have anywhere close to the prestige of the knicks and redskins...pretty much think it's a dead heat between the two...probably give the edge to synder for being more of a fucking dipshit because the skins were winning titles in the 80s and 90s, while the knicks haven't won anything since the 70s...

    This wouldn't ever happen in LA even if the Lakers had remained bad and the Clippers rise because they won 5 championships in the 2000's, had Kobe, etc.

    The Knicks best player in the last 20 years was...Carmelo Anthony? Kristaps Porzingis?

    Team is hopelessly futile and the draft assets they have will be bad, as Luka Doncic is already a top player.

    Speaking of the Knicks.....reports are they will try to trade for Chris Paul in the offseason.

    He's having a great season for his age in OKC this year. But let's face it he's only getting older/worse and he makes 40 mil a year.

    Maybe he compared the shape of the ball to the earth, which doesn't vibe well with his truther superstars.

    Seems weird, that franchise made a series of smart moves over the year up until signing Kyrie.

    Gotta wonder how desirable of a coaching job it is to inherit a team that has steadily improved since the disastrous trade with the Celtics.

    Durant is a mercurial weirdo, Kyrie is nuts and both are super injury prone.

    They'll be expected to immediately contend in an Eastern conference that has gotten steadily better.

    It may all come together but I would bet against it.

    Supposedly, Durants agent is buddy buddy with Mark Jackson, so that could be what's in play here. Still fucking odd to fire a coach of a team, set to make the playoffs, in the final third of the season.....outside of any personal life issues.

    Could be a full clusterfuck going on also. Maybe Dinwiddie, Levert, others feel like they're not being heard over the injured prima donnas. Really could be anything.
