    i didn't say shyt about him playing different outside him making efforts to conserve his energy more on both sides the floor, you're bugging if you don't think its coaching staff and his own intuition telling him to cool it

    matter fact i don't know why you felt the need to reply to me

    its no debate his competition is much more athletic at this level, that's all i spoke on

    Y’all were celebrating that trade HEAVY for New Orleans when it happened. Bledsoe was just the cost of adding 3 firsts and a bunch of swaps for Jrue Holiday

    I have zero doubts the fix was in on the 2019 draft lottery knowing AD was leaving a small market team, which could have potentially folded.

    Imagine thinking the NBA cares about it's smallest market enough to create a scandal like this :mjlol:

    The year after LeBron leaves, Cleveland gets the first pick.

    The year after KD leaves and both Curry and allay go down, Golden State gets the first pick.

    it’s not about the market than it is the narrative. The storyline. New Orleans, lost AD on the eve of Drew Brees eventual retirement.

    these owners be on some behind the scenes fukkery so I wouldn’t put it past them to rig draft lotteries.

    The pels have a bunch of national broadcasted games but the team sucks. Zion is playing well for a his age but only time will how good his peak is.

    Yeah you know what's a better "narrative"? New York, Chicago, and LA getting #1 picks every year or are you forgetting about how the media threw a nonstop bytch fit when NO won the lottery for Zion?

    Narrative may be the wrong word but there's definitely business involved

    Lol the league fixing #1 picks isn't outlandish and no it doesn't start with Zion. And I didn't know single sentences qualified as juelzing.

    Article came out yesterday, he pretty much said they are not worried about now but long term and want this year to be development but I am not sure how much this roster is beneficial in helping their best players develop.

    Come on. The NBA has gone out of it's way about New Orelans. Not sure about rigging the draft, but they have fought to keep the franchise in town.

    Are yall serious? Do you understand the risk vs reward of rigging a draft to benefit their smallest market? Again if the NBA was going to rig a draft, why haven't the Knicks won the draft or even moved up since 1985? And why would owners sign off on that?
