    Faried doesn't move the needle for us. He's a poor defender and hustle bigs are easily replaced.

    The answer to the OP is become the 2004 Pistons, as has been pointed out. It's sort of eerie: ...

    Pretty sure the promoters were paying the stars players $150k each. The NBA fines would have been less, but I think the players were more concerned with the optics and not pissing off the league.

    I find it incredibly weird that the NBA would wait until the 11th hour to issue their warnings. It's possible that East West Private was just trying to sneak the whole thing through without proper...

    Yes, I know that, but the problem there is that there's no flow to the posts because they're all of differing subjects.



    Yes, also this. And a new subject in an "Everything" thread can...

    Sig bet? I'll take the under on 51.5 wins. Winner chooses loser's sig for next offseason (through to game 1 of 2015-16 regular season).
  7. General policy suggestion: "Everything ________" threads

    Hi RR,

    I have a small suggestion for the forums.

    One important factor that makes a user want to check the forums is to see if there's been new discussion or new posts or topics.

    I know...

    May not be conventional thinking, because "Defense wins championships!", but it reminds me a little of the 7SOL Suns... you can be an awesome defensive team but you need SOMEBODY to score the ball. ...

    This seems to benefit from a lot of hindsight is 20/20 thinking.

    "You do not let him opt out"? If the goal is to lock him up without him hitting RFA then you may not have a choice. For all we know...

    Lesser of two evils though. Lowry wanted that five-year guaranteed money and we ended up giving the player option on year 4. I imagine something similar happened with Demar. He probably wanted either...

    Holy shit. We broke TWO summer league records. Fewest points in a quarter and most points allowed in a quarter.

    They outscored us by 42 points in the second half, 63-21.

    #3rdQuarterMeltdown

    Raps set record for fewest points in a summer league quarter. Play Buycks the whole quarter. Classic.

    I would like Dwight Buycks to, you know, play point guard.

    When they write the book on Demar Derozan, I'm pretty sure that no one will ever be able to say he didn't live up to his potential or make the most of his opportunities.

    The Phoenix Suns in 2004-05 added Steve Nash and went from a 29 win team to a 62 win team with Mike D'Antoni in his first full year as Suns coach.

    Not Stauskas, but Ennis for sure. I have to believe Phoenix wants in on the Love sweepstakes or is preparing some other gambit. Dragic/Lowry/Thomas makes no sense otherwise.

    We have a shot now.

    Miami is much weaker and Indy is definitely weaker. Cleveland has a lot of young pieces and will take time to gel. Bulls are the likely favourites but I don't trust DRose and...

    Adding Stephenson and Vonhleh is really solid for Charlotte talentwise, but Stephenson and Hairston could really test team chemistry--those two are knuckleheads.

    Trey Lyles is likely our best NBA prospect for the 2015 draft. Should go top 10.

    We're a little weak at C but by 2020 somebody will emerge, and we're deep at every other position. I'd actually...
