what old school is for you it ain't the same for me, old man

I'm intrigued.

What would constitute as "old school NBA" for you? Kobe vs Celtics period, late 2000s?

Nuggets vs TWolves was an excellent game,

Curious to see how game 2 will play out. Ofcourse they've only played one game so far, but I get the feeling TWolves will take the series. They simply have to much depth on their roster and they can throw 'big' bodies at Jokic and wear him down.

Out in the East, it will be a cakewalk for the Celtics - but once they've reached the final they won't be 'battletested' like the team coming out of the West.

covid hit you too hard and felt like two decades? :D
buy a sarcasm detector, you got money

Timberwolves are playing defence and that's beautiful. I love watching Nuggets, but this isn't the first time they are destroying them. Isn't it like the 4th consecutive game Nuggets couldn't reach 100 points? Timberwolves are the antiNuggets team

I have a soft spot for Timberwolves ever since KG was playing there so i am happy to see them doing so well. Hope they can go all the way and win it.

As long as Ant plays like Jordan, yea, it's them

Let's see how good the Mavs actually are (no Kleber, but the dreaded THJ is coming back)

Still hard for me to see the nuggets just get man handled like that....
Then again the Wolves are probably the best suited to shut them down

Same here, I really enjoy(ed) watching the Nuggets play. But TWolves are doing great - full credit to them.
- Ofcourse the American media are now hyping up Ant Edwards - which is normal, Jokic, Luka and Giannis, Victor W. are EU-players, and I can imagine it would sting if some EU guys would become -in the long term- the face of the NBA. It's obvious how they are hyping/pushing the agenda of Ant Edwards.

Edwards is legit, though. I have no complaints if he's elevated to those levels. But of course he has to deliver at the highest level as well.

2 more wins against Nuggets and nobody will say the hype on Edwards isn't warranted

people kept saying Timberwolves would get swept because they never do anything in PO

before game 1 against Nuggets :)

Yeah but honestly them not doing anything in the post season had little to do with Ant... I guess the main skepticism was towards them playing with two true bigs and it not working last season. I d also argue that the Conley trade went largely under the radar and he has been huge for em this year....

Imho their playing style this year is a lot different then last season or lets put it this way this year it seems like everybody knows his role on the team and is playing it almost to perfection which was not the case last season...
Side note if they go on to win it all Imho a lot of teams will go back to two true bigs...

I'm sure the media already hyping the Wolves as the champs and Ant as the next MJ, most surely hasn't jinx them.
