  1. Early stages? Is this a 20 year rebuild? No terrible contracts? Deng is on the books for two more years. Ludicrous? Magic said he would quit if they don't land a star the next two years. I'll have what you're having man.
  2. Strike 1. You must be referring to seats on the bench - the masses sure aren't turning out in droves to see Trevor Ariza. Ayton & Booker, sure they generate hype. Ariza is a high level role player.
  3. How in your opinion then does signing Ariza help the Suns? This type of deal makes sense if the team is going to be competitive, like JJ Redick's deal last year. But it makes no sense for the Suns - they don't have to give multi-year high price deals, and they don't have to give a one-year high price deal. Just hoard cap space and create a bidding war.
  4. Makes no sense. They aren't going to make the playoffs, they have young wings, and they don't have a point guard. Much better uses for that space, whether its a PG or cap space to get a pick in a salary dump. PG - ? Knight? SG - Booker Wing - Ariza - Bridges Wing - Jackson - Warren C - Ayton This reminds me of the Kangz paying Hill, Carter, and Randolph last summer. CAP SPACE IS VALUABLE.
  5. "Report" is about teaming up in LA - not Oakland.
  6. 2018 NBA Draft Discussion Thread

    This is a combo draft discussion / vent & rant. "Experts" draft "grades" are so terrible - I will use Steve Alexander's grades as an example. Teams need to be graded on a curve - if you only have second round picks or no picks, then you are obviously going to not get as highly regarded players. Alexander gave the Pistons a "C" because they didn't get a "game changer". Well okay, but their first pick was at 38 and they got Khryi Thomas. That's great value. Alexander gave the Nuggets a "C" for taking Michael Porter. Small market teams need to take home run hacks every pick IMO. Swing for the fences. Porter is a great pick at the end of the lottery - just look at how last year's draft played out this year with Fultz, Fox, Isaac, Ntilikina, Collins, Monk, Kennard, etc. There are no guarantees. Nuggets get an A in my book. Alexander gave the 76ers a "D" when they traded the 10th pick (Bridges) for the 16th pick (Zhaire) and a mystery box first rounder in 2021. Yes, you don't know what that pick will be but there's a chance it is a lottery pick in a loaded draft when they end the one and done. It's a great gamble. 76ers get an A in my book.
  7. 2017-2018 Trade Deadline Thread

    Hill/Clarkson JR/Korver Hood/Green LeBron/*Love Nance/TT Obviously flexible on the positions but I think that's what it looks like.
  8. Fact check: Millsap was the 45th ranked player in nine cat last year, 46th in eight cat. Just considering forwards, Millsap was 24th in nine cat and 22nd in eight cat. Your subjective position is objectively false. And you did compare him to Love in this thread, at least indirectly. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.
  9. NFL Ratings 2017 Outlook

    The NFL realizes that it doesn't have to put the marque games in the primetime slots to make the most money. They know they can put a mediocre to bad game in TNF, SNF, or MNF and people will watch because its the only show in town and still go out of their way to watch an awesome game during the day. Yes, the great game would get more viewers in the primetime slot, but overall the numbers likely decrease. In other words, the combined viewers for great game in meh slot and the the mediocre game in primtime slot will exceed the mediocre game in meh slot and great game in primetime slot. That's the theory anyway.
  10. Not even a question -- do it.
  11. Second round of the playoffs doesn't start until what, late April?
  12. Is he even going through progressions? He decides where to throw before every snap.
  13. 2017 NBA Offseason and Free Agency Thread

    I'll play this game. This is a great deal for the Clippers -- they absolutely "won" the trade as they got assets versus getting nothing.
  14. 2017 NBA Offseason and Free Agency Thread

    I'm sick of seeing these takes -- this "trade" is a math problem, not a lot of bargaining. CP3 was about to walk, so the Clippers will take anything they can get for him -- they have no leverage. In turn, the Rockets have to give back enough salary to even be able to do the trade. The Rockets added a first round pick (likely to be a poor pick), which is the only throw-in/non-essential on this deal. The value of the players and picks being traded is irrelevant. Great deal for Clips, great deal for Rockets, and an even better deal for CP3. It's highly improbable that this is a one year rental.
  15. 2017 NBA Offseason and Free Agency Thread

    This is an odd take. Cap space is pretty pointless if you can't really use it, not like they're going to sign a couple max guys and make a run at it. They are (or at least appear to be) in total rebuild mode. Signing declining Millsap or a similar player hurts your draft pick and puts you back in purgatory. I could understand overpaying Porter I suppose as a younger guy.
