Re: Basketball

3-1 now. Can't see GSW having three bad shooting games if they're given good looks from outside. Cavs need to get right into their faces and give them some kind of pressure so GSW at least have something to think about. Cavs need to change the odds, not wait for GSW to let them work themselves out....

Re: Basketball

Not old enough to have seen him play at the time but seen plenty of video of him play. I feel he is always badly overlooked when people talk about greatest ever, he deserves to be in that conversation more than he is. I think Hakeem has said he sees some of himself in Embiid and has offered to trai...

Re: Basketball

You're absolutely right as there's less of them around to start with because many are stretch 4's at best nowadays. The game has changed a lot due to the current outside dominance but if another Shaq came along i can guarantee he'd force another change. I think any of the top old school centres wou...

Re: Basketball

Don't know how many dominating centres are really available at the moment though. Nerlens Noel is a free agent this summer and is a very good defender but is not great offensively. He will be asking for the max as well so not sure the Cavs could pay him. PG13 is out of contract next summer. Not a c...

Re: Basketball

Would Westbrook be the final piece in their puzzle? Great player that he is i don't think he's the solution for Cleveland. Cavs already have players who like to touch or bring the ball up and there's only one ball. In my opinion Cleveland need a player who can dominate a position away from the ball...

Re: Basketball

Well I guess basketball is going to be boring for the next few years <erm>. The Cavs need to sign Westbrook or something. Would Westbrook be the final piece in their puzzle?

Re: Basketball

Some great basketball being played. These fellas are on another level. The percentages they execute at under pressure is truly phenomenal. You wouldn't try some of those shots messing around by yourself at the side of a house. They're out there in the NBA Finals, 10ft from the "long" three...

Re: Basketball

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSXRyMs5xwM Almost time <divax> GSW 1 Cavs 0. Dunking practice for Durant!!! Can't remember the lanes being so wide open in a park game, never mind the NBA Finals. Cavs were fanning out to protect the 3's before defending the ball. Like it or not, IT's ALWAYS BALL FI...

Re: Basketball

Golden State Warriors v The Cleveland Cavaliers.
Some interesting match ups. GSW have the firepower but there's only one ball.

Re: Basketball

Don't know what happened to Harden. Choke?, it looked like he'd never seen a basketball before. Some of the misjudged passes he threw made Sunderland's midfield look like a well oiled machine. Anyway, Newcastle Eagles are in the final today against Leicester Riders. Is it me or don't the Eagles get ...

Re: Banner over Stadium of Light

If it said "MOYES OUT" i'd have chipped in myself!!!
The last half of the 15 points season was quite upbeat compared to this dross!!!

Re: If Newcastle signed Defoe...

Big Sam had the majority of this squad gathering top half points for half a season. That was down to an organised structure and players understanding they had to work hard to match every side for effort. Only then would their "slightly" higher skill levels show against the worst teams. Th...

Re: If Newcastle signed Defoe...

Sorry Piston, I like you as a poster and one of the rare decent mackems but I can't agree with this. IMO you comfortably have the worst squad in the PL and whilst I agree with a lot of the Moyes defeatist stuff, i'm not sure if underachieved is the right word for it. Perhaps George Caulkin put it b...

Re: If Newcastle signed Defoe...

I'm not one to defend our players/squad and definitely not management when it isn't deserved but in my honest opinion we've got a squad that should at least have managed 4th bottom. All piss taking aside we should've managed that meagre "achievement". Pretty much the same squad managed &q...

Re: Colback

Was a decent player at sunderland. Usually managed a consistent 5/10 or 6/10 for less than peanuts wages. Like a any good professional made himself available for selection and turned out nearly every week, which many others couldn't say. Not very adventurous but his role was mainly defensive and you...

Re: If Newcastle signed Defoe...

There's some fools who think we'll do quite well with this squad, as though its this squad we'll have!!! Anyone of value will be sold. We'll be left with some highly paid clowns who no-one else will touch. Some of these won't look quite as bad in the championship but even with relegation clauses th...

Re: If Newcastle signed Defoe...

Slow reply and i'm not sure if it's been mentioned elsewhere but i'm led to believe that there's a clause in his contract which allows him to leave on a free if/when we've been relegated. I'd imagine interest from a few clubs so there may need to be a signing on sweetener but he may waive that for ...
