Love how people think for some reason this year will be different for portis...we've been down this road three years in a row...

 

You realize he's in his second year, right?

wait im about to drop mcdougie for portis. josh of bbm said he's not good, 

Yeah Josh does not like Portis at all.  Think he can be Gibson-lite but he's definitely not a game changer.  I wish the Bulls got Okafor just to hear Josh's reaction.

Aren't you guys ignoring Mirotic is still on the Bulls? If it's any indication Mirotic has way higher upside than portis if given minutes. Something tells me this has ugly timeshare written all over

And i don't see why Deron would stay considering he can go to a contender easily. That is unless he is a loser down in his core

Raps would be nice!

Apparently there were comments from the Bulls coach about Portis jumping Mirotic on the depth chart with his recent play.

Or maybe it's because he's not a good NBA player.

This. Was on the Free Portis hype train last year. Never again. He's in the mould of those Terrence Jones, Mirotic types - fantasy folks love them cause of the potential to put up stats, but they never live up to the hype cause of glaring weaknesses in their actual basketball skills.

I am not a specialist...but i think that Larry Bird makes the wrong decision.....

he could probably receive Jae + first round pick from Bkl + even an other player like Smart for PG13...

Not to bad a reconstruction...

instead of it, he can lost PG13 for nothing next year...PG will be in his last season...

 

strange or not??

Ya'll need to get into leagues with FAAB waivers.  I mean its awful watching everyone scramble to decide which hot takes to follow and whether to make adds before the deadline that could preclude other better adds.  Tonight is a bid night so its not like FAAB removes the need to make a decision promptly, but I just witnessed a ton of chaos on message boards completely driven by First Come First Served FA pools. Yikes.

 

Full disclosure, I used to be a FCFS FA truther and thought my league mates just imposed FAAB to slow me down cause I'm a news hound, but its really a fantastic way to handle add/drops and I wouldn't go back fwiw.

I agree first come first serve is absolute nonsense.  We just use waivers and cut out Free Agency all together, which works really nice as well.  Have waivers run on Mondays, Wednesday's and Friday's.

Lol idk how you got THAT from what I said.  Actually I said "FWIW" which loosely translates to "do with this what you will" which is just about the most gentle, inviting way someone can give a suggestion.
