And people complained about Robersons offence last year, yet when they were talking about OKC in the playoffs, they still included Melo in their supposed 'big 3' even though Adams is their 3rd, arguably 2nd best player. 


Not just his offense, his defense.  When he played this year their starting five had a defensive rating of 95.9 with Roberson playing and a 114.5 rating without him.  Melo will probably opt in so hopefully he'll be coming off the bench where he should be at this point in time.  

IF PG stays, I think a line of Westy, Roberson, PG, Grant, Adams would be a fairly strong 2 way starting 5.  Westy though, he really needs to back up a bit and share the ball.  If not, maybe it should be Westy with the 1st unit and PG can lead the 2nd unit, then play them together in the 4th when it matters.  I think they were doing that earlier in the season.

i almost stopped watching basketball after witnessing his last exchange with Durant (can't find a vid)...it was so childish (from both parties), that i almost thru up in my mouth a little

somebody just needs to slap him upside the head/knock him on his ass one day

It's a tough one and I'm split a bit on what transpired.  I've read accounts of Utah fans being embarrassed by some of the stuff being said by other Utah fans.  Extremely vulgar about RW's family and kid.  Guess he could grow a pair and leave it alone but like on here, some of the things said would never be said face to face.  Same as Westy, these fans would never walk up to him and say what they say.  I get the competitive nature and extreme fans stuff but tbh, there is a line that shouldn't be crossed and just cause you buy a ticket it shouldn't give one a license to be a dick.

Adrian Wojnarowski: Tough blow for Utah: Jazz guard Ricky Rubio could miss 10 days with left hamstring injury, league sources tell ESPN. His return could be sooner, based upon progression in rehabilitation.

Melo just had his exit interview, where he said he's not willing to come off of the bench, and he's also not willing to play the same role next season. So basically he's going to do exactly what DWade did this year in that he'll opt in, then inevitably get bought out. He's so washed.

You know, if he did opt in I'd just send him home and let him stay there.

So sad when great players don't see the writing on the wall ... Not that melo was all that great, but still.

As for the series, another one when. I was way off. I don't know if teammates like Russell or not, but it's definitely hard to play with him. When a PG takes 40+ shots, that's not going to make the offense hum, that's for sure.
