    Meh. I kind of hope that as a fan base, people don't care enough to boo him. It's a waste of energy on a guy who really meant nothing for this franchise in the grand scheme of things. In my mind,...

    Probably best to just wait for the summer and go after him in free agency. His contract is small right now, so Atlanta won't really be tempted to shed his salary, nor will they give him away...so why...

    I would also say that in the most likely way to get a favourable matchup in the first round is to get as high a seed as possible. So even in the first round, seeding matters a great deal. It's not...

    I don't think it's very likely at all. I think it's more likely we rest guys when they have a playable injury (I'm looking at you, Amir), but in general not really for other scenarios. The Spurs...

    I would also throw in the potential impact of Millsap's decision on what the team does. Millsap is going to be looking for the biggest pay-day in his career, and it's not hard to think that could...

    Because I think you're vastly overrating Taj's scoring ability.

    First off, it's not that he's not as good a passer as Noah...it's that he's not a good passer, period. Or rather, he's a player who...

    But Taj is the same thing, and then it all gets into fit, and for Toronto, I can't envision Taj in any way being a better fit than Amir. Maybe health-wise, but that's a different angle entirely.
  8. But again I come back to fit, and what kind of...

    But again I come back to fit, and what kind of scoring option do you want? Taj would clearly start ahead of 2Pat for the same reason Amir does: defence. However, Taj doesn't fit at all into a scheme...

    Fair points, especially the bold, but that's still not the consistent way in which their subs were managed. While maybe not the most frequent case, there were also games where a young guy would be...

    Well, D is hard to measure, and there's certainly no stat I like very much, but using nba's stats page and sorting for DRTG in the clutch, the evidence isn't very good in that respect.

    And just to offer a different perspective using a within-team clutch ranking...I still don't like +/- very much, but here you go.

    I honestly think a lot of that is management doing an excellent job (even going back to BC) in gauging character. Raps have not had a lot of inflated egos or boneheads in their locker room. And I did...

    That is flawed though. You're ranking by +/-, which in no way helps describe what happens situationally, nor does it represent results. In the end, the best stat for performance is the most basic, Ws...

    They were also one of the worst close-game teams in crunch time. So there's that too.

    *I would argue a lot of our success in 4th quarters was because Amir-2Pat-DeMar-Lowry (I'd guess our most...

    The issue isn't just development, it's accountability. It does not send a good message to give some guys a longer leash than others just because of random factors like age or talent. Why should a...
  16. First bold: I know you didn't say he's dominant,...

    First bold: I know you didn't say he's dominant, I was just pointing out he isn't a stand-out post player. He has some moves, but he's a backup level scorer. The thing that makes him arguably starter...

    I'm not sure this is true at all. Taj is a better creator in the post (as a scorer)...but it's not like he's dominant, or even very efficient. I always thought Taj's value was mostly on the defensive...

    That's not happening. That just seems really lopsided (or is it just me?). I mean, why the heck would they give up Payne? They're already giving up two starters, including the best player (by faaaar)...

    Yeah. I'd love to have him. He's also a free agent next summer. I'm still not 100% convinced Millsap is the best move (don't think it could be a bad one though), but it would be kind of funny if next...

    Well, assuming that is a choice we face...I'd have a hard time not picking Carroll, especially if his strong 3pt shooting keeps up this season. His defensive ability would just fit in so well at SF.
  21. Well, Jeff Green is a worse player. He might fit...

    Well, Jeff Green is a worse player. He might fit at SF, and I've thought of him as an option, but would definitely prefer Horford.

    As for the expensive part....but how expensive? Especially...

    I've wondered the same about Ross. Just not sure he has the right mentality to maximize his talent. As opposed to DeMar, who I always believed would maximize his talent, just wasn't/am still not sure...

    I didn't take offense to the comment, nor did I originally point out it was offensive in general, just false. Just pointed out the flaw in it. But I didn't like his attitude and the fact that he...
