Who were some players that you were surprised they made it to NBA?

Like, every single player that made it to NBA, G-League, Euroleague, D1 colleges etc dedicated their youth to the game of basketball and every single name which will be mentioned in this thread will whoop an average r/nba nephew’s ass on one leg, so i’m definitely not disrespecting anyone.

Deandre Jordan still getting a contract after a disastrous season got me thinkin, like what players that made it all the way through NBA looked this bad on the court? Like are there any NBA players you played ball with/watched them play and you just said “nah this guy aint it”?

the worst nba player i watched on tv was renaldo balkman. he was stinkin so bad like it was embarrasing. also played pickup game with a pro baller who played in euroleague and he was, like normal? i expected him to drop half court threes n shit and he just didnt stand out. all love tho he was a very nice guy

In your opinion what is the biggest misconception about a nba player/franchise?

For me it’s that Chris Paul is a playoff choker, that’s not true Chris Paul is a very good player in the playoffs, people love to say how many 2-0 leads he’s blown and the one 3-1 lead he blew, but if you look at context and the stats he plays really good in the playoffs and the only series I would blame him for his team losing is the 2014 thunder series, 2019 warriors series and the 2022 mavs series, aside from that he played well in the playoffs and for me that’s one of the biggest misconceptions in the nba is that cp3 doesn’t show up in the playoffs, which is false, cp3 plays well 80% of the time in the postseason.

KD and Kyrie are not going Anywhere. Nets are Stuck in Prisoner’s Dilemma

Prisoner’s Dilemma – 4 options. Nets can either: Keep Kyrie and trade KD. Keep KD and trade Kyrie. Trade both. Keep both. Nets know they can’t trade one and not the other. Therefore, Nets would have to trade both….but no packages are appealing.

Front Office knows a team built around Bridges-Ben-Ayton is NOT winning shit. And then if you had Russ to that mix, it’s even shittier! Pascal and picks anit gonna cut it either, especially when Russ is still the only option for Kyrie. If Jaylen Brown or Brandon Ingram or half the Warriors roster was an offer it’d be a done deal, especially with infinite picks. But teams aren’t mortgaging their future for a 34yr old KD.

The optimal choice for the Nets is to tell KD and Kyrie to QUIT BITCHING AND SHOW UP TO WORK and see this thing thru at least one more season with Kyrie. Then, make a decision on the future. Maybe Nets go to the finals, maybe they don’t. But the roster is far too talented with ammo for another contending acquisition to just quit and blow it up now.

– KD says he loves the game so much…..well show up for work and give it your all for 1 more season with your man’s Kyrie and see how it goes.

– Kyrie sits out most of the year and doesn’t care about the money but he is upset because Nets didn’t give him “his money.” Shut the fuck up Kyrie and show up for work and earn it

KD and Kyrie knew they were good enough to go to the Nets and win a ring at Kyrie’s “home”…..why are they quitting on themselves now?

Which active player do you think has the best chance of achieving a quadruple double?

There have only been quadruple doubles in the history of the NBA, with the most recent one being tallied by on February 17th, 1994.

Who, if anyone, do you think could achieve the next one out of all current NBA players?

A few of my own picks: I think Draymond has been the obvious choice for a while, considering he got a triple double without points against the Grizzlies in 2017 with an insane statline of , but he’s nearing the end of his athletic peak. My dark horse homer pick would be Jusuf Nurkic, given that he posted a statline of against the 76ers in 2017. Lastly, I believe Chet has a nonzero chance of achieving one given his shot blocking and passing abilities.

What do you guys think?
