Yeah he’s really mastered the skill of exploiting his way to the free throw line. Can’t really do much about it. But relying on such things is why he can get shut down during a playoff series. Regular season is fine but during the playoffs I don’t remember in recent times where he has received 15-20 free throws in the game.

youre right Stephen A talks so much smack about Giannis but the minute hes in NY he will be frothing

NBA Central Division preview: It’s crunch time for the Milwaukee Bucks

Yeah i get where you’re coming from. I think their success will rely on Trae Young becoming a superstar. The defense could be suspect I agree but I definitely think the supporting cast will be strong and they can make some waves. If their defense can improve to at least be average they could be dangerous. John Collins is going to be the wildcard as his rookie deal will expire and hes definitely going to get money. But I can see this team being a mini version of Houston with Young as their Harden. But maybe won’t put all their eggs into 3-point shooting. But we’ll see, it would be nice to see a team like Atlanta break out this season

NBA Southeast Division preview: Can the Atlanta Hawks shake things up?

Yeah I honestly feel like their best chance was 2 years ago when they were up 2-0 in the ECF against the Raptors. If they didnt choke to lose four straight things could be looking rosier. If only they didnt extend Bledsoe

yeah ive had to go through different websites to see what has happened because it certainly has been eventful.

Haha yeah it was absolutely unbelievable watching how they handled things

I also think Southampton will bounceback. Chelsea and Leeds was a fun game! Unfortunately Chelsea had too much for Leeds in the end. Can’t wait for the big games coming tonight.

Games to watch out for in Week 11 of the EPL

It’s been a crazy decline

Major takeaways from Week 10 of the English Premier League

Yeah Dexter is on the money, I was watching it back to see how things unfolded and ultimately Grosjean tried to be aggressive and he would have seen a slight opening to his right to escape the cluster in front of him. Little did he know, there wasn’t enough space with Kvyat there on the right hand side. It was a heat of the moment decision which just happens during racing and in the craziness of the opening lap. Kvyat wasn’t in the wrong as Grosjean had tried to barge through. It’s just very unfortunate that him colliding with Kvyat led to such a fatal impact which he was lucky to survive.

Major takeaways from the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix

Thanks Ben! Yeah we really did come across similar things haha. Appreciate your knowledge and history of Formula 1! Love reading your stuff as well. All the best with things

Major takeaways from the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix

Yeah they have done great since the second half of last season. It’s great to see them be consistent. Hopefully they can at least draw or beat United this weekend

Major takeaways from Week 9 of the English Premier League

Yeah I admire the way Leeds play and hope to see some more results go their way

Yeah Smith is so young its incredible. He could be one of the next big things in the future

The Western Bulldogs midfield have the bite to finish in the top four in 2021

Whether Treloar comes or not either way I do think Bulldogs should improve in 2021. Treloar would just be another cog in their midfield wheel and could’ve been congested which is a good issue to have honestly

Yeah crazy theyre still talking about the contract payout. If Collingwood end up moving away from the $300k they’ll just look even worst

The Western Bulldogs midfield have the bite to finish in the top four in 2021

Yeah I’ll be keeping a close eye on them!

100% i cant wait to see what unfolds. It’s pretty wide open right now. I am ready for the games! Starting with Newcastle hope they can pull an upset on Chelsea

In my initial draft that i believe was edited out, I mentioned that its frightening that Queensland was able to provide great exposure to their youngsters and they can also bring in some established talent who could fight their way back into the Origin side.

It was great that Bennett selected Harry Grant. It was a bold but positive move. You never know how debutants will perform with high stakes but it was clear he was always going to shake things up more than Ben Hunt.

Meanwhile, NSW played one of their strongest 17’s and couldn’t get the job done. They’ll have to be disappointed that Game 1 wasn’t a quality performance and cost them this series. Now they’re going to have to regroup in 2021 and recover from a major setback.

Maroons topple the Blues in the Suncorp fortress once again

Yeah…. Stroll blew it. He was too keen and stuffed himself.

Well in the end they’re all outside backs. Obviously the Welch and Gutho for front row isn’t a discussion. But whether you’re a fullback, centre or wing, players can be versatile. Like Jarryd Hayne played everywhere from fullback, wing and centre. Hayne wasn’t the best centre and again if were talking about centres then I’d pick Gagai over Hayne as a centre. But regarding a player overall, I’d take Hayne over Gagai. If you talk about Greg Inglis, thats a different story though. He was a great centre and fullback.

State of Origin Game 3 preview: Can Suncorp lift the Maroons to a series victory?

For me I would take Papalii and Cameron Munster when he’s on song. Definitely would rather Cleary over Cherry-Evans. Harry Grant I’d possibly choose as a number 14 over anyone besides Walker for NSW. But thats probably about it. You could also choose Gagai over any NSW center but just head to head and as an overall player not including position then obviously I’d choose Gutho or Wighton over Gagai

Appreciate it!

State of Origin Game 3 preview: Can Suncorp lift the Maroons to a series victory?

To be honest I dont think any result would come as a surprise. I could easily justify NSW winning whether its by 4 points or by 24. Likewise QLD winning at home by 4 points or by 24 is not absurd if the Queensland crowd help ride the Maroons to a demolition of the Blues. I really don’t know what to expect

State of Origin Game 3 preview: Can Suncorp lift the Maroons to a series victory?

It’s really tough hey. It’s a tough pick just because you don’t know which NSW team will turn up and you’re right Origin isn’t played on paper. I fully expect Queensland to come out firing but whether NSW can match them will be the key.

With both players having such bloated contracts, it’s not going to be something that you could say off the top of your head and the economics have to work out. Obviously with research you would have to think their trade partners will require lots of cap space. If there is an offer on the table similar to what Paul George was exchanged for, that’s something they should pull the trigger on.
Ultimately, the point is the Rockets won’t win the chip with their current situation or at least it looks unlikely they will. Therefore with the assets they have, they should try to maximise the assets they receive in return. What that is exactly well you’ll have to explore different team situations to see what’s realistic but they need to get back some draft picks and pick up some young prospects very soon.

It is time for the Houston Rockets to change philosophies and rebuild
