To some extent, which he should be cause he's playing a lot of minutes right now with some straight up D-leaguers out there. But we also don't win last night without Klay going off for 19 in the 4th q.

Today (Dec 6, 2018), the gulf between the West and the East in terms of difficulty of schedule has never been more apparent.

In the West, there are 10 teams within 4.5 games of the 1st place Nuggets. And all but one team (Suns) are within 6.5 games. That means the 14th place team (Spurs) are only 6.5 games back of 1st place.

In the East, there are TWO teams within 4.5 games of the 1st place Raptors (Bucks and 76'ers) and only 3 teams beyond that (Pistons, Pacers, Celtics) within 6.5 games of 1st place.

Time to disband the East and just distribute the few good players throughout the Western teams.

Seems like this would make more sense if it wasn't ignoring the fact that the top team in the West would be 3 games behind the top team in the East.

This whole argument is based on 1 outlier team

Some truth to that, but in the East 9th place is 6 games behind 2nd place even, when 14th place in the West is also 6 games out of 2nd or 6.5 out of 1st. 13th place in the West would be in the playoffs in the East right now. West really only has the Suns shitting it up and the East has Hawks, Cavs, and Bulls all shitting it up.

East is bad like always.

Comparing where teams would be ranked if they were in other in the other conference is a far superior way than comparing them against 2 different standards.

It's incredibly early to be making these conference arguments. The season is barely over the 25% mark. It will probably still ring true but talking about positioning in December seems worthless.

A lot of people still think the rockets will turn it around but I honestly think they're toast enough they will struggle to hit 50 wins.

Rockets suck. I am very disappointed in them this year.

Chris Paul's gonna be an anchor to this roster for another 3 years... fuck me.

Can the Bulls be moved down to the G league. As a fan of Chicago sports they are the worst. That team is long gone.

So where would he go? The 4th? The 5th, Or would he fall, And be a Knick? The baffling Kings to Bagley over Luka

And if you're wondering the lyrics when he makes himself laugh:

Maybe he should have been your pick. Even though he's white and thick. He's colder than a tall glass of kombucha.
