Im not your kid.  You also have 0 idea of how old I am.  The fact you are stuck on a specific number to hold a team to scoring shows how outdated your view of defense and the game is.  Basketball is a collective.  The Warriors have one of the best defenses in the NBA and give up a ton of points.  Mostly b/c they are obliterating the other team as the other team is scoring. 

 

A lot of the Lakers defensive issues stem from their turnovers and transition defense.  Those are things I believe they can work on.  The other stuff is simply roster based.  They don't have a big that's good in PnR defense yet.  Zubac is still too young and Tarik and Randle are simply not good rim protectors. 

 

Kid your view is so limited there's barely room to comment. An exaggeration of 50ppg is far far away from 90 points pg. and of course that's not as unrealistic as it's measurable cause right now that's the issue D, perimeter getting Best and Bigs getting fouls covering or no help the helper. So what's the average 100?

Just hope Bird doesn't pull a McHale and send him to the Celtics. Especially if the Celtics get the 3rd pick and are down to trade it.

I feel your pain on that, we need some good fortune

Interesting issue for the lakers. If PG gets on All NBA team he would be able to get a lot more money from pacers. Would hurt lakers chances. Now that Durant it hurt he has a better chance. I still doubt he will get it but still possible.

Yeah I don't think he will get it unless he goes nuts starting now. Too many good forwards. Hayward could make a case too honestly.
