Wilt is the most overrated player in all of basketball history lol
Alright fellas, drop your weirdest and wackiest NBA hot takes down below and I will determine the validity of them. Not gonna be responding to obvious troll bait so don’t even try. Please take this seriously and don’t just spew random bullshit. Also, it would be greatly appreciated if you spread this lineup around to other users seeing as I haven’t amassed a big enough following. Have fun :)
I seem to have overestimated you guys’ abilities to come up with hot takes. Holy shit these are bad
the rockets get better this season and become a contender in the west
1. They were always a contender
2. I don’t see how the Wall-Harden situation will work out since they’re both ball-dominant guards that need the ball to succeed
i mean a real championship contender because right now there not that
Always 100% sure
LMAO FLOPPED HARD
the Atlanta Hawks are a dark horse in the playoffs, this could possibly be a make or break year for them
W besides the dark horse thing this came true
I wouldn’t say a dark horse in the playoffs, but they do have a shot at clinching it
I don't even know why I need to say this, but Chris Bosh was elite in Toronto, I've seen people slander his name saying he "wasn't elite in Toronto"
He was elite but he's not meant to be a first option ona championchip team
Fortunately, I’m not one of those slanderers.
I don't even know why the Rockets traded for Wall, his playstyle is VERY similar to that of Westbrook's and we all know what happened with the Westbrook experiment. (I have a shit ton of hot takes)
Also, it's hard to get someone to trade for Westbrook with that contract he has.
Wall is a better fit then Westbrook is
but how did the Rockets end up?
I think they did it because John Wall is far more efficient than Westbrook and they just wanted someone who could actually pass effectively
They did it because it’s the same money and they’re still tanking but they get a pick out of it
Ik it’s a hot take
Wolves 2023 champions if everything develops right which it won’t :(
Improbable, but not impossible.
Lonzo is better than you think he is
HES THE GOAT
How do you magically know my opinion on Lonzo Ball?
idk some people think he is bad
Emoni will go number 2 and Wemb will go number 1.
This is a big stretch imo
bronny will go number one
They not in the same draft class doofus
My fellow Americans, thank you for electing me, Joe Biden, as senator of the United States. I'd like to congratulate Obama on winning the presidency and I'd also like to thank Kamala Harris and let me just say she's a strong white woman of color and she has a stank ass pussy. Seriously it reeks of rotten fish. We successfully defeated George Bush and the poor boys and now that I'm almost 78 I won't have to wipe when I shit anymore. I need to go change my fucking dentures so thank you and God bless the United States of Trunalimunumaprzure.
fuck joe, TRUMP SHOULDVE woN. #TRUMP2020
Fuck both of ‘em. JoJo should’ve won #NoMoreTaxes
What are your political views?
trump the goat
What do you like about him?
HES SO FUCKING CUTE, AND HES DICK IS SO FUCKING BIG, HES THE PREDSIDENT WE NEED TO SAVE AMERICA, NOT A PERVERT. #MAKEAMERICAGREAGREATAGAIN #TRUMP2020
But for tho, what are your political views?
You seem to be too immature to hold a civilized discussion
My point proven
Ah, I see. No maturity or intelligence.
Bronny isn’t in the same class as emoni
Too early to tell yet, but there seems to be a buttload of potential in that draft class
Ye. 2021 is also hella stacked
Jazz will go no where in the next 5 yrs because they have no young trade able assets to get a 3rd star or ever be a true contender.
comment aging well lool
I mean if you count a 2nd round exit as going far then sure
Big doubt that they beat the Lakers or clippers
LMAO nice comment bud aged great
trade rudy hes useless
I dont think a 2 time DPOY is necessarily "useless"
he is a offensive liability
but still a good player
The warriors are a poor constructed team.
When was the last time the warriors had 4 non shooters on the team. Lol + outside of draymond the defense isn’t good
Well at least they won’t be the 15th seed this season
I think the suns will make it to the conference finals this year. I know they have a tough division, but adding chris paul makes this team a lot better, and they were already looking good in the bubble.
This take is a W, atm the Suns have the best record in the NBA and have an easy path to the ECF unless the Clippers or Lakers are the 4th seed.
eh idk about conference finals, but they'll probably get out of the first round
idk about that. The thunder went to 7 in the first round, but Chris Paul had a way worse team than he has now. If the team has good chemistry, which should be easy to get, They have a really good chance of making it to the conference finals
meant tough conference
Raptors are the most underrated team in history
Then who is
early 2000s Blazers or Kings maybe. No Raptors team has been underrated except maybe 2019
LMAO look how they played this year
Are you referring to a specific Raptors team or just the franchise in general?
just the whole franchise
No, that title would belong to the Spurs
Thunder will exceed expectations like last year and make the playoffs
Did I ask for your opinion
Don’t really know how they’re going to make the playoffs when their 2nd option is Danny Green
he got traded for al horford dumbass
Who is even worse
chocolate milk man is the best
I wouldn’t be putting that much faith into a washed-up and ageing undersized center
big cap, if they do they’ll be around last seed
exactly what im saying they only had a .2% chance to make the playoffs last year and they still made it and this year im guessing it will be even lower
The Hawks wont make the playoffs this year
That’s just common sense
Tbf I said this before they made all those trades
okay then, donovan mitchell is better than booker. I can argue this for hours
Provide your argument then
in the last 3-4 years, mitchell has had a worse team than booker has and has made the playoffs everytime. booker didn't make the playoffs in his career YET. Mitchell has proven he can go off when it matters the most as he prove by almost beating murray. he has been a top five seed with only rudy gobert as his next best. Thats why his assist numbers are low.
Did I just hear that right? The Phoenix freaking Suns are a better team than the Jazz? I don’t even wanna hear the rest of your argument after witnessing that dumbassery.
We know the Suns had the worse team he is stupid, but Donovan has proven in the playoffs he can be clutch. He has beaten teams like the OKC Thunder in his rookie year, He did then lose to the Rockets but he did steal a game (2018). Then he played the Rockets again! (6 games) then last season they did blow a 3-1 but that had NOTHING to do with Donovan. I think Donovan is a better playmaker and has better defense. I wouldn't be upset if you pick Booker but I feel Donovan is a better player.
It’s okay buddy, you can take your time
I think New Orleans is gonna do better than they have in previous years
Eh, not really. They were a borderline 8th seed when they had AD, and they’re probably gonna be just that next season as well.
The Wizards will make the Playoffs over the Magic
both absolutely will not lmao
Woah dude, no need to get political
i dont really have a hot take but i just made a card could you go like it plz https://2kmtcentral.com/cards/458315
>Doesn’t have a hot take
>Proceeds to comment four times, all of which are completely unrelated to the topic
Impeccable logic, bro.
Your comment literally brought me to tears. It was so beautifully constructed and had such eloquence behind the meaning. You truly are a wordsmith. I’m expressing my gratitude to your tremendous contributions to society.
i feel the same way about bam
the Thunder will be in the playoffs at least once within the next 3 years
They have 17 first-round picks for the next six years, so yeah. They did so this season with a mediocre team, so I won’t be surprised if they achieve a playoff berth in the near future.
Bulls will be a 9 seed or close 8 seed
If they make good free agency moves which prolly won’t happen
Free agency is over....
Welp were fucked no playoffs
wizards won't make the playoffs
I see them from in the #6-7 range tbh. Could even make a case for #5 if you wanted to
depends if hachmura plays defense
Westbrook will be a great mentor and leader for the younger players
the clippers will be the 5th seed
Who’s making it above them?
lakers, nuggets, jazz, and mavs
Arguable for the Jazz and Mavs but it’s fine I guess
The houston rockets will not make the playoffs this year
He was correct
Your retardedness is incomprehensible even for Albert Einstein himself
im a rockets fan, but harden is so shit.
Yeah, the guy that was an MVP candidate for the entire second half of the ‘10s is so shit amirite?
but he has no desire to play with us his skills are amazing, but he isnt dedicated to the rockets so we wont win
First of all, how does his motivation determine the level of skills? And you wanna know why he doesn’t wanna play with them anymore? Because your organization is terrible and the small-ball strategy is straight up hopeless without the right pieces.
ya ik how shitty feritta is, and that is why we will not win. Without harden wanting to win a ring in htown we will never get over the hump, and if we trade him we wont make the playoffs
He’s for sure gonna be gone by at least the end of the next season if they don’t do well this season.
tht only happen in 2018
Is that the year when you started watching the NBA?
Fucking boomer, go take your meds you’re delusional
LOLOLOLOLOOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLLLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLO< im only 20 dumbass, im a zoomer ;)
Well it seems staring at the TV for the past two decades has messed up your vision. That would explain why you’re so retarded
he was right...
Woah, my retard-o-meter is going OFF right now!
Patrick Williams is one of the most high risk high reward players, he can work out for the Bulls and become the next Kawhi, or he can completely flop
Most definitely a flop in my eyes
Jason Richardson is the greatest Dunker, and most underrated dunkers of all time!
Greatest dunker? No
One of the most underrated dunkers all time? Yes
Knicks will be out of the lottery in at least 5 years
they have the pieces, they just need to develop
I think one of the best trios in NBA history is Wilt Chamberlain + Jerry West + Elgin Baylor = Really good trio in '72!
They only won one ring though
Yeah but at least they didn't stop trying. They need credit for that.
The ‘19-‘20 Cavs did stop trying this season, are they the best team in the league now?
I mean, I haven't watched the NBA in a while. So Idk, that's their fault for not trying, they could have at least beat a few teams.
They were the second worst team in the league with only 19 wins
Yeah, that's tough.
Grizzlies will be a contender for a ring in the next 3-4 years. if we make the right front office moves then the grizzlies can be really good.
I don’t really see how the front office would pull that off
true but you never know
Wilt's 100 point game was faked
Why do you believe this?
the nba could have been looking for publicity and just faked it
Key words: “could have”
Just because there’s a chance something happened, doesn’t mean it did. And Wilt has the most 50pt+ games in history, so I don’t see why it’s that outlandish that he did it. Remember, he did average 50 for a season.
there also is no evidence that it happened besides the picture of him holding 100 on a paper
I’m pretty sure there was a radio broadcast of the game as well as official box scores
that could've also been staged, it would be more believable if there was some video footage (I still believe it happened, but I also believe it could've also been fake)
I think the Rockets will do better with John Wall. The problem was that Harden and Westbrook were both way too ball dominant. The closest Harden was to making the chip was with Chris Paul. Although Wall and Westbrook have extremely similar play styles, I think Wall will be more willing to take a step back and play the role Chris Paul did of being a mainly a playmaker and not a scorer. The rockets also learned that the small ball system did not work.
Good take, well done.
point and laugh, gentlemen
u already hav top 3 commented lineups lol
Cavs will get no 1 pick then do some dumb shit and take Suggs no.1 :( ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
get no 1 pick
That’s literally not possible unless they fall out of the playoffs completely and win the lottery. The timberwolves pick they own becomes minnesota’s again if they jump to 3 or higher
kobe doesnt deserve top 10 lol
Eh, I somewhat agree. He’s a borderline top 10 player for me
Leonardo Bolmaro becomes a 6’6 suns Rubio
And Jaden Mcdaniels becomes a guard like forward with a good shot and defense. These r both at their peaks imo.
Idk much about them, so I’ll just take your word for it lol
Lol Alr. Bolmaro is like a passing small forward that can do a little bit of everything he just isn’t very efficient. He’s also a draft and stash guy that’s currently playing or Barca. Mcdaniels was a top high schooler last yr ranked no 7 I think. He is 6’10 with a handle and can get to the rim and plays ok defense when he try’s. Mcdaniels stock fell because he had a ass season and apparently he had coaching issues and didn’t try that hard.
Zion is overrated
Ja deserved to get ROY
chris boucher might be a future 6moty or even make the raps starting lineup
lonzo would lock lamelo up but lamelo is still better
ad will be better than karl malone
i know this is wild, but the lakers will not win back to back, i just don't think they will have the the strength to do it back to back, especially if lebron isn't condition like he wants to be. I know their roster gotten better, but are those players gonna be a good fit for the team? only time will tell.
they're gonna work for the Lakers, they don't need to rely so much on LeBron at his age, taking tons of work off of his back
I think Bam is a really good player, really good person, buying his mom a house for her birthday at all, and i also think Bam got paid what he deserves. If he continues to get his jumpshot better, he is about to become one of the best modern day centers ever. He can do everything but shoot from 3, so i hope he can get better at that.
all said and done, top 20 center of all time
Western Confrence Standings
5. Rockets(for now)
8. Blazers or Pelicans(zion looking scary this year)
we don't talk about that bro
Eastern Conference Standings
8.Hawks or Wizards
Hawks or Wizards lmao
WE DON'T TALK ABOUT THAT BRO
It’s possible now
as with Patrick Williams, Issac Okoro is one of the most high risk-high reward prospects, he's either the next great thing, or a total flop
basically this, but for NFL https://2kmtcentral.com/21/lineups/63608/drop-your-nfl-hot-takes
Nikola mirotic is the greatest player ever
I have tons since these are shit.
Hakeem is better than Kareem
Giannis is gonna win a third MVP
Paul George has no flaws to his game
and Luka will never be the best player in the world in the next 7 years.
The George one is kinda true but he lacks clutch ness. Also, I don’t think I’d run him as a ball handler because he isn’t the best dribbler. He’s ok but not great. Also, playmaking is ok not great. I like the Hakeem one. He could be ranked top 3 but people overlook his accomplishments
MJ AND LeBron are the G.OA.T! Kobe is Top 5.
2 people can’t be 1 goat
Kobe isn't top 5 imo.
The Mavs dont have an all nba/all star/2nd option to help Luka and get them into the p offs
Agreed. Until Porzingis takes his game to the next level, I don't see the Mavs going anywhere in the near future.
Yup, logo KP is cool but not good enough
Richaun Holmes is the greatest nba player of all time
That's not a hot take, that's a fact.
Harden was the true mvp until he got injured
The nets have a 97% shot at winning it even through injuries
Spencer dinwiddie could be back by the finals
Durant is better than bron (skip says that too)
Kawhi had the most underrated year of his career. It was also his best.
Gobert isn’t worthy of his extension but the jazz were loyal to him so it works ig
Jimmy butler is a hall of Famer if he retired rn
Giannis has a 0% chance at mvp this year
Lebron is a baby
Embiids szn has been overrated
Simmons would lose to me in a 3pt contest
Last but not least, the wolves will be good in 4 years (max)
They're really unreliable with their non-existent defense
Pure skill-wise, yes, but LeBron is the better all-round player and leader
His most underrated yes, but idk about his best
Idk if he makes it if he retires rn, he's nowhere near finishing his career and imo he doesn't done quite enough to get in
He'd be top 2 or 3 in the race if the award wasn't purely narrative-based
Wrong, he's 36
Underrated if anything in my opinion. If the Sixers played him in garbage time his stats would be even better, but they're always blowing out their opponents
That's fair lol
If they get everything right then there's a small possibility
A lot of these are right, except for a few.
Which are wrong then
The second one, 7th one, 10th one, 11th one
I could most definitely beat Ben Simmons in an NBA 3PT CONTEST LIKE NBA 3s not high school ones
Simmons is a good 3pt shooter if you see footage of him shooting around on an open basket. But then again, I don't know your basketball ability, so I'm not gonna judge.
That’s a good conclusion because I can knock down high school threes not sure about nba threes I’d probably knock down more than 5 (yes I’m talking to you detlef and mj)
I can make around 4 NBA threes in a row (maximum), so I'm not that good, the only thing I got is playmaking, and defense
Playmaking is natural to me I see everyone (usually) and defense I’ve worked on and I can comfortably say I’m pretty good at it maybe elite. The one thing I might struggle with is closing out on a fast shooter cuz they could pull or drive and fakes too. I’m an above average shooter but not by much. I’m pretty close to average I’d say, just slightly over.
I'm okay at shooting, I shoot like 34%
I think Ricky Rubio is severely underrated
He's nothing special, just a solid playmaker
That’s a lost art nowadays. There’s no pure point guards left just ball hogs. He also gives his best on the defensive end, he’s a great veteran leader and Anthony Edwards said he loves playing with him and it helped him as a player
I think a porzingis kat swap wouldn’t be a bad thing, you saw how d lo has been doing good under the radar there and wigs is doing good so Minnesota swap might be a good fresh start for both playes
Wolves will be better than Memphis and pels.
They really gave Steven Adams 18 mil a yr lmao.
worst record in the league
Hurts when u have a bottom 10 coach oat injuries and players underperforming. Obviously those issues don’t make up that gap to be better then the grizzlies tho
no, they won't
mj is currently the goat but brown will be when his career is over
He referring to jaylan brown
Please specify who this “brown” is.
I meant bron but autocorrect
hot take is meant to be a provocative and bizarre opinion that nobody has really considered. LeBron eventually becoming the GOAT is already quite a popular opinion, so therefore not a hot take. Nonetheless, it’s still very probable that he will.
oh ok, then I think the hawks will either barely miss or barely make the playoffs
Still not really a hot take but okay
same with suns, which most people think are gonna be higher
Same with suns
MJ ain't the goat dumbass
Who is then
Provide your argument
carried the 07 Cavs to the finals, and doesn't need help to get to the finals unlike MJ, also legoat doesn't get destroyed in the first round.
What MJ accomplished in ten years:
10 scoring titles
10 All NBA First teams
9 all defensive first teams
3x Steals leader
That’s more than what LeBron has done in his career. Mind you that MJ did all that in the hardest era in league history.
