2023 NBA Season - Around the League

Do Not Sell My Personal Information
1978-79 Celtics: 29 Wins
1979-80 Celtics: 61 Wins

Rookie Larry Bird did that (along with new Celtics head coach Bill Fitch).

That’s what a GOAT ROY looks like.

LeBron's rookie year was a GOAT ROY. Cavs went from being the worst team in the league tp finishing one game out of the eight seed while basically adding LeBron. There were a lot of dysfunctional players on that team as well, including a bunch of guys that didn't want him there.

Had the play-in been around at that point, no one would've wanted to face that team in the playoffs.

Heh. Here's a GOAT ROY. He also got the MVP. At least Wilt Chamberlain is my GOAT.

If some rookie came along and produced these numbers, the NBA would go crazy. At the time, Wilt kept the NBA solvent.

Who didn’t want him there? Miles?
 
Only an absolute idiot wouldn’t trade Mobley for Wemby. Adding Allen is also an easy decision.
