    The funny thing about that observation is that the actual impact over a season surely would be small. I'll use Demar for example, since he's near the top of the leage in FGA. Right now he's on pace...

    It's probably fairly irrational that the heat would max Lebron and then make no effort to have any other talent around him.

    You could probably name 30 teams that would like to sign Lebron to a 5-year max deal. Luckily for the heat, they are the only one's with the right to do so. What can anyone offer Lebron that the heat...

    I think it just shows that many teams are capable of a great stretch. The numbers don't lie to you - if the season was 10 games long, they would be nearly elite level the way things are going. In...

    It seems like the big downfall to any extension talks with Lowry/Amir, even with a bonus is that they can get more guaranteed years as UFA's. Collison signed a 4 yr extension, but the max length for...

    To add to that, what's the point of winning the division, with a losing record, 2nd round best case scenario etc, with a $70m payroll.

    I think that is a big part of MU's mediocrity avoidance....

    The trick is convincing the owners to value results over bottom line profits. Look at the new owners in Sac Town or James Dolan, Prokhorov etc. - pushing their GM's into making lots of terrible...

    A hard cap would be a good way to make sure the small market teams struggle to remain financially viable. If the league has approx. $2b in payroll, and you set the hard line say around the luxury...

    Has there been much discussion on the contracts here? That has to be considered. Crawford is at the end of a rookie deal, so it would help to include an estimation of what he would be resigned for,...

    I might be over reading it, but are you saying Drummond should be developed MORE before playing in the league? That's some massive standards for entry, if so.

    I agree, watching Jordan Crawford...

    Wouldn't raising the min draft age to 22 mean that you need to find 60 guys that are 22 or older every year to fill the draft? I think the rookie scale contract would then need an overhaul, bc if you...

    You would avoid double taxation if the two countries have a sufficient tax treaty. So for example, if you are a Canadian that lives in the USA and has income there, then you would file a Federal and...

    I'm not projecting anything with the 18 game sample, so there is no sample size issue. 19 shots at 38% is a huge hole to put your team in, and severely limits any chance at success. I only replied bc...

    He actually is pretty much that bad. If he makes 38% of his 19 shots, the rest of the team would have to make around 48% to get the team average around 46% overall, which would be top 10 league wide....

    I don't think it's that players aren't able to hit a basic shot, as you describe it. It's that you have unrealistic standards for fg% on long 2's. If Dirk and Nash make them at between 41.63-43.66%,...

    The article basically says that you run out/crowd a shooter behind the 3pt line, and that the big man rotation doesn't come aggressively above the restricted area. There's an example of George Hill...

    That's a really big if. He hasn't thrived in any role yet in his career, so I'm not sure how you sell a team on a guy with a 19m option to be your 4/5, 6th man etc. What will he be, something like...

    I mentioned this before, but I'll point it out again; Drummond has taken two shots outside the paint this year, so I guess you're saying his layups/dunks look awkward? He makes 65% of them, so they...

    If it doesn't involve talent to score at the rim like Drummond, then shouldn't all "big bodies" be really good at it? You might be giving cousins some degree of difficulty bonus points bc he posts...

    Isn't Casey on a one-year contract? I think there is a possibility that Casey is coaching based on some level of input from his superiors. It's not like an NCAA coach that can mostly dictate minute...
