  1. DeAndre Ayton 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    One other small flaw could be his defense but who cares about that, right?
  2. Great analysis. At this point, the Kawhi situation is turning into the PG situation from last year, which is the Lakers worst nightmare. Kawhi and the Raps are having great success and Kawhi is playing very well. It wouldn't make any sense for Kawhi to leave given the situation. He's the conference's best player, on a talented team that can compete for years. The East is wide open for him to dominate for 5 years, easy. The only way I see him leaving is if his heart just isn't in Toronto, which could very well be the case. And even if he does want to come to LA, he'll want to he a Clipper where he can have his own team. Teaming up with LeBron at this point is like teaming up with Kobe post 2010, only a few guys are gonna wanna do it because only a few guys can handle the pressure and want to be in that spot. Kawhi is not one of them, at least I think. KD is a total pipe dream. Why would he leave a dynasty where he can win titles for years and coast during the regular season for a team where he'll have to work his tail off just to be a top seed? Again, unless his heart isn't in GS (which it is), or he just gets bored of winning titles , why would he leave? The Warriors will let Klay leave before KD. Believe it or not, I think the Lakers best shot at landing at star is with AD. The price will be very high (and rightfully so), but it could be their best shot. LA could give New Orleans quite a few young pieces that, in a different system (looking at Zo and BI), could thrive and become very good players. Both have the talent, but don't fit on this team. The Pelicans would get a very good package in return for AD and the Lakers get a superstar who, after LeBron, I believe is the best player in the league and is still in his mid-20s. Put him and LeBron together and surround them with 3 and D players on cheap deals. That gives them a better shot than what they have now. I just don't see a top free agent signing with them at this point. LeBron is a different player than he was 5 years ago, he's got that Kobe feel around him now. Trading for a star is their best bet. Would NO trade AD? Not now, but as soon as AD says, I want out, which could happen pretty soon, the Pelicans' hands are tied and they'll have to make a move. This Lakers team, as currently constructed, will only be a 6-8 seed, max. That's if they all figure it out and make a move as well. They remind me of the Nuggets last year. They can score with the best of em, they play no defense, have a few weird parts that don't really fit, but are young and want to get out there, push the ball, and run.
  3. I want to play in your league!
  4. Myles Turner 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Typical Turner game. Not many points, even few rebounds. He's stuck in a rut and when you are stuck, you gotta do the things that build confidence and get you going again. For some reason he looks content just sitting out there and doing nothing. That tells you all you need to know about this guy. Very talented but no motor or heart.
  5. Wendell Carter Jr. 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Starting to rebound very well and turn in double-doubles like it's lunch. So solid in so many areas of the game. A joy to watch if you're into complete, do-it-all players. Not the most exciting, but you know they get it done every night. Carter will be a joy to own for many, many years.
  6. This is so much fun to be apart of! Only going to keep getting better and better. Congrats to those of you who got him in keeper/dynasty leagues too, what a stud you have on your hands. The kid is barely 19 and like 10 games into his rookie year. I can't even imagine what he'll be doing in 3-5 years when he becomes a vet, grows into his body more, the game slow down, and he keeps improving. One of the highest ceilings in the league right now, and no, that's not just tonight's hype talking. Legit talent here from a soon to be NBA star.
  7. Collin Sexton 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Cavs vets say he doesn't know how to play......I think the real question is, are we sure they know how to play?
  8. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    I never said Bell was a jerk. Money is on the line for him, like I said, it's a business. But at the end of the day I think he pretty much just played himself. He better look into finding a new agent because whoever his current one is isn't doing a very good job.
  9. Le'Veon Bell 2018 Outlook

    It was a pathetic move on their part? Guy, this is a business, not a fantasy team. The Steelers could care less about Bell, we know this. Use 'em and abuse 'em. Conner is next in line, whether he sees it or not is the question.
  10. Dez Bryant 2018 Outlook

    He is so gonna torch the Cowboys in a few weeks.
  11. Pascal Siakam 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I moved him into my starting lineup a while ago, too. I just was wondering if anyone had traded him for something else. You're right about his name value though, most people still don't even know who is he really.
  12. Pascal Siakam 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Anyone moved this guy? What is his value?
  13. Myles Turner 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I cannot stand bigs who don't rebound. Seriously, it's so annoying. Turner has the talent but doesn't have the motor, and that's something you can't teach. You either have it or you don't. He's nice in blocks but what else is he really contributing to make him worth where he was picked? Getting in shape didn't do much for him. I just hope no one overpayed too much. I don't say this too often but this guy is a bum.
  14. DeAndre Ayton 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I believe this is the reason we're not seeing many blocks as well. They need him out there on the court getting buckets, not trying to block shots and sitting on the bench with 4 or 5 fouls. Don't get me wrong, they need his defense too, and I want to see him play D, but he needs to be more disciplined on that side of the ball.
