    The evil media trying to knock us down day after day and year after year. Well they can go f*** themselves. Lmao.

    The Suns won with 4 or our guys playing a good role and 2 of our guys starting. Ricky Rubio had 11 pts and 11 assists. Saric had 7 pts, Kaminsky had 9 and Baynes had 5pts.

    The Denver Nuggets won behind 20 pts and 13 rebounds by the main man Jokic! :)

    By far the best perfomance of the night by an emerging superstar on the Chicago Bulls. Here is the video from Legend Lari Markkanens huge game!

    Luka Doncic's 34 points, one shy of his career high, is the highest-scoring season opener by a player under 21 years old in NBA history!

    In addition to Luka Doncic winning rookie of the year last year and posting 8 triple doubles all while having a better rookie season then anyone under the age of 20 ever! Here is another stat from tonight.

    Luka and Porzingis: 57 pts

    Magic and Kareem: 55 pts

    Durant and Curry: 53 pts

    Jordan and Pippen 46 pts

    With Ayton of the Suns getting suspended 25 games, we could be witnessing the “Resurrection of The Tank”. Frank Kaminsky should now start after getting hosed in Charlotte. In addition to this Baynes should also see his minutes increase.

    Thats the good news, the bad news is they most likely still suck. Still nice to see 3 white starters. Got to admit, Ive never been impressed with Saric though.

    Mavs are now 2-0 on the year. Porzingis with 24 points and several blocks. Doncic with 25 points and a triple double. The scary part is they are capable of so much more than this.

    The Mavs are 2-0 after a nice win over the N.O. Pelicans.

    Luka Doncic had his 9th career triple double in only his 2nd year in the nba. Doncic who is only 2o, had 25 pts, 10 rebounds and 10 assists!

    Porzingis was just as good scoring 24 pts while blocking 5 shots. He should have had 6 blocks as he had another that he was called for a foul when
    he never touched the guy. Even Kleber had 8 pts. This team is so fun to watch.

    I was going between World Series Game 3 and the Mavs. Mavs are going to be a fun team to follow this year.

    G/F Luka Dončić became the first-ever player under the age of 21 to record a triple-double within the first two games of a season following his 25pt-10r-10a performance. Dončić now has 9 career triple-doubles, adding to his own record prior to age 21 in
    @NBA
    History.

    Most triple-doubles in NBA History before turning 21:

    Luka Doncic 9

    Magic Johnson 7

    LeBron James 5

    Speaking of triple doubles, the Nuggets beat the Suns tonight behind a huge triple double by Nikola Jokic! The guy is amazing. Too bad the team isn't worth watching outside of him and Plumlee off the bench.
    Jokic finished with 23 pts, 14 rebounds and 12 assists! :)

    The Suns put up a great fight and lost by 1 pt in overtime. Rubio had 9pts & 9 assists, Kaminsky 19 pts & 11 rebounds, Saric 6 pts, and Baynes with 15 pts and 7 rebounds.

    Miami wins again. They have 4 whites in playing a huge role. Two startes in Leonard and Hero, and two off the bench. This team is fun to watch! Goran Dragic had 25pts off the bench! To be perfectly honest, Dragic should be still starting which would give them 3 white starters.

    Actually, Miami has 5 whites playing a big role; Leonard, Herro, Dragic, Olynyk, and Robinson. They scored 70 out of Miami's 131 points in that victory.

    You guys are making me almost want to catch an NBA game - something I have not done since probably 2009.

    For the basketball fans here both the Mavs and the Heat play teams today at 4:00 MST. If anyone wants to watch and needs a link then look above on this thread.

    It’s refreshing to see Steve Kerr and the odious warriors getting absolutely dumptrucked through the first few games of the season (and in the first year of their glitzy SF arena to boot). Down 41 in the third quarter to the thunder. Going to be a long season for these loudmouths

    I'm watching the Mavs game and they just scored 40 pts in the first quarter to take a nice lead over the Trailblazers. So far here are the 3 white starter points with 3 quarters to go.

    Max Kleber 12 pts

    Luka Doncic 10 pts & a nasty dunk & also just missed a half court shot at the buzzer.

    Porzingis 11 pts.

    The Mavs lost a 2 pt game due to a controversial call being reversed. Complete crap.

    Doncic had 29 pts, 12 rebounds and 9 assists & 3 steals. His teammates must have missed the last 5 to 10 easy shots to deny him the triple double by 1 assist.

    Porzingis had 32 pts, 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 blocked shots.

    Kleber had 14 pts, 6 rebounds and 3 assists! This team makes basketball fun to watch again!

    Just to give the average basketball fan an idea of how hard these kids work to make it watch this video. Kid was working and practicing non stop since he was in 3rd grade. So much
    respect for kids like Tyler Hero and many others. Especially when the stereotypes work against them. I can see a future nba all star. Also to be noted the Heat had a good chance to get
    R. Westbrook but OKC wanted Tyler Hero and Miami and Pat Riley refused to give him up. That is one of the reasons that Westbrook ended up in Houston. That is the truth. Pat Riley
    has even seen something in this kid that is very rare. Athletic, coordinated. talent off the charts with a work ethic that is almost unheard of these days. Hero will live up to the hype!

    Speaking of the main man Tyler Hero! He has 19 pts at the half tonight against the Atlanta Hawks. This is a playoff team he is doing it against. Dragic has 11 at the half. It's great to
    see some white kids from the US finally making their marks in this leage. Tyler Herro is only 19 and is originally from Wisconsin. He only played 1 year of college and is already suceeding
    in the game he loves at the highest level. In my opinion the Heat are a must watch after only the Mavs above them.

    Tyler Hero finished with 29 pts and 7 assists in only 29 minutes. So he scored a point a minute. At one point Reddish dunked on him but barely made the dunk. Tyler Hero jumped
    and just barely missed the block. This 19 year old Hero is fearless! Love his swagger. Big win for the Miami Heat and Goran Dragic also scored 21 pts! Fun team to watch.

    The Mavs won again against a playoff team. It was a defensive stuggle. Maxi Kleber was actually one the best players for the Mavs. He had 14 pts 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 3 blocked shots.
    His last blocked shot saved the victory for Dallas. This Big German Kleber is so talented. He gets overshadowed by the 2 all stars Doncic & Porzingis but he is amazing himself!

    FLipped on the Heat v Hawks game on TNT. Heat have four Whites on the floor: Dragic, Olynyk, Herro, and Duncan Robinson. Great to see.

    Yes they do that every time they play. The Miami Heat have 1 white in their starting lineup but play 4 out of 5 guys off the bench and 2 of those bench guys should be starters. Dragic & Hero! :)

    Heck even Olynk is very good and Duncan Robinson has the same potential talent as Hero! This team is loaded top to bottom. Meyers Leonard starts but needs to shoot more. He is a stud but way too unselfish.
