  1. Fultz isn't even playing in Summer League because he . . . can't. His trade value is absolute zero right now. Can he really be included in serious offers for Kawhi?
  2. LeBron James 2018 Offseason Thread

    Changed a little since Saturday
  3. LeBron James 2018 Offseason Thread

    I forgot about Clint Capela, who's now a RFA. If someone like Dallas offers him the max, Houston either loses him or they won't be able to sign LeBron. Or CP either. In the event Houston matches Capela, 97% of their cap space would be eaten up by just Harden, Ryan Anderson, Eric Gordon, P.J. Tucker, and Capela. That would leave 3% of the salary cap available for LeBron James and Chris Paul. So, like $1.5M for each of them. They probably wouldn't be OK with that.
  4. LeBron James 2018 Offseason Thread

    This is Houston's cap situation for next year, as currently constructed: They have negative 44 million dollars to spend on LeBron. How are they signing him?
  5. NBA Playoffs Talk

    All of those teams are capped out. Memphis for example has 80% of its cap space tied up in just Conley, Parsons, and Marc Gasol. Those three guys are on the books with guaranteed money through 2020. Memphis is screwed. The only teams in the league who can outright sign LeBron this summer are DAL, CHI, PHI, and LAL. That's it, every other team is in cap hell.
  6. Between Big Collar, Fultz, and Kawhi, I can't remember an NBA season ever with this many straight up bizarre storylines.
  7. Bryan Colangelo is not long for that job.
  8. NBA Playoffs Talk

    Agreed. Next year is a contract year for Rozier and he's going to get paid. Boston either has to trade him or they're going to have a pretty expensive backup PG. Kind of like the Eric Bledsoe situation from a few years ago when he was backing up Chris Paul and CP3 went down.
  9. Warriors Legacy?

    That explains why you forgot to mention that other dynasty that played when the league had 8 teams, players shot underhanded, and everything was in black and white: the 1949-54 Lakers. That squad won 5 out of 6 titles. George Mikan was a fantasy beast for that 48-49 team: 28.3 PTS with 3.6 AST on 42% FG's and 77% FT's (4-cat). Step it up, RDNC.
  10. 2018 NBA Draft Discussion Thread

    Surprise people for better or for worse? They're both projected to be top-10 picks.
  11. Rookies 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Before this one, only one other rookie class had as many as four players finish inside the top 100 (9-cat). That was in 2003 with LeBron, Melo, Wade, & Hinrich. Bosh was just outside at #101. Some rookie classes had zero as in 2014 with Wiggins the highest ranked rookie at #130 (lol). This class had six in the top 100 (Mitchell, Tatum, Lauri, Lonzo, Collins, Simmons).
  12. Markelle Fultz 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    This looks like a dominant force?
  13. NBA Playoffs Talk

    Yeah but remember it was Bryan Colangelo who made that decision. It was never going to end well. He's the same guy who picked Andrea Bargnani #1 overall and also the one who traded not one, but two high picks (PHI 2018 #3 and SAC 2019) to his conference rival in order to move up to take Markelle Fultz. This was after PHI already had a PG in Ben Simmons. And also after Danny Ainge brought in Fultz for a pre-draft workout/dinner and was so horrified by what he saw that he couldn't run away from Fultz fast enough. That was a huge red flag and Colangelo just ignored it. Even Bargnani and Anthony Bennett "played" though, kind of. Fultz can't even get on the floor in garbage time. Colangelo's trade to get him is looking like one of the biggest blunders in NBA history.
  14. NBA Playoffs Talk

    Not to mention that Miami is capped out with $82M going to just Whiteside, the two Johnsons (Tyler and James), Dion Waiters, and Kelly Olynyk. All of them are on the books through 2020 as well as Dragic and his $19M that year. Looks like there's no room for a splash FA.
