  1. Which rookie is worth drafting this year if he is in the teams? Which team is the right team? (all Pending on if Boston makes a trade)
  2. Sometimes i don't get all the talk about signing stars. Say you are a GM of a team, you would want to win it all. How do you win it all? Get the best players in the league. Who are the best players? They are all the star players. So of course teams are loading up on stars! GM's don't get rewarded extra money by trying to win with less star players. Players flock to teams that have a chance to win, a city they want to live in, and of course money. I do admire the Spurs for squeezing ridiculous value from players. No ither team can do this.
  3. I know everyone has comments about Harden and i think he should have adjusted more too. I was silently thinking Ryno needed to shoot better for them to have a chance. Just a comment.
  4. I can't trust him in the regular season. The trend with 30+ guys these days seem to turn it on only in the playoffs and the Celts are young with probably even more talent next year. I think he will go top 40 because of the optics he gets in the playoffs but I will let others draft him.
  5. I think the biggest thing to watch in soon to be Warriors vs Cavs is how defends the switch that Lebron gets to face off against their opponent's worst defensive players. Irving has been ok efficient in his Iso's but Lebron's been killing it with the 3 when he gets a switch vs a big who wants to defend his drives. If Lebron keeps get his ISO's vs Pachulia, then it should be an easy game. All the 3's start from the ISO's I expect GSW to change their lineup so almost everyone on can defend Lebron. Draymond, Durant, Igudala, and even Klay match up defensively pretty well against him. I'm not sure if Curry has the size to but if they play that lineup, Warriors has a very good chance this year. We shall see in game 1 Finals.
  6. See what POR does in the off season since Allen Crabbe is there already. Maybe they will move him for a good PF. Doesn't seem likely Pat will have much value though. I think Dekker is going to be a very under the radar sleeper next year. He can do a lot of things on the court and his injury is making fantasy players forget about him. Ariza is 32 next year though he should be playing hard in his contract year, which may limit Dekker's upside.
  7. I think CP3 wants it and the Spurs wants it but what would LA get in return? Anyone else willing to offer more for CP3? I guess he will be opting out of his contract next year though so it won't matter.
  8. Reading your post made me think about that time a Mo Williams became an All Star.
  9. Kidd's and Buck's past trades are catching up to him though. Powell could have been a buck and Ibaka may not have been here if Toronto never traded with the Bucks. They made some good moves this year through the draft and NOT trading Monroe even though they tried so hard to get rid of him. Brandon Knight would have still been better than MCW, who I think is slightly better than Snell (if they only could get MCW to not shoot). Given the history of how they've managed their team, I am uncertain they will take a step forward next year.
  10. Agreed, I rather select whoever the Suns drafts or the pg that ends up in NYK. Chance that the #1 pick is traded to another team though.
  11. I feel like Oladipo should be better than this too because you sometimes see RWB gassed and out of energy. Not that I am blaming RWB but the fact that he needs to exert that energy and minutes for the team to win means 1) nobody is good enough on the team including Dipo to shoulder the load or 2) the team isn't using Dipo (or some other player) enough to help RWB. He has to shoulder some of the load so that RWB can at least go harder in the post season. Nobody is superman or maybe think they are superman.
  12. I would say Dipo is very good but the coaches has to figure out how to use him, especially in OKC next to RWB. When the coaches don't know how to use Dipo, he is pedestrian. We all remember what happen to Dipo in the Scott Skiles era. He went to the bench and people were dropping him like they dropped Jokic/Nurkic this year. He also finished strong that season too. OKC is basically another Skiles situation where they just focus on making RWB better and Dipo is just a defender. OKC should try to be more like POR where they can get more out of both their backcourt players and make the SF the 3/D guy, which they already have in Andre Roberson.
  13. If you take into account in H2H where embiid was hurt for the crucial 1/3 of the final season, I think his 120th adp is justified. So basically this year was horrible for rookies in H2h at least.
  14. What is Isaiah Thomas' draft position next year? Love this guy, from being the last pick on the real life NBA draft (same draft as Irving) to being a star of similar value.
  15. So I guess he will be a starter with starter mins next year? Brodgon, Middleton, Giannis, Thon, Monroe. Snell might leave and Thon seems to have a clear path to minutes for at least first half of the season. Jabari Parker might be out of a job soon sadly.
