    To a guy who's been stuck in Atlanta for his entire career, coming to a team with a devoted, raucous fan base like Toronto, may very well be a factor he considers. Atlanta is known for having a...

    If your mentality is to look beyond just the 1st round, then seeding is far more important, to ensure you have home-court advantage as long as possible. Whether it's seeding or using roster spots to...

    You started out by implying that there are two types of owners: those who only care about profitability and those who only care about winning.

    If MU/DC think they need a backup C to play against bigger/taller matchups, then it's Stiemsma for sure.

    If MU/DC think they need a 3pt shooter, then it's Hamilton for sure (I don't think the...

    Ilich knows that winning in a sports-crazed town is what makes him his money. He also knows that Detroit fans are fickle; if the teams are losing, the fans stay home. Savvy owners understand that...

    I think a lot of what the argument comes down to is personal opinion over the best way to develop young talent - and this isn't just limited to basketball.

    haha musing about rumors is one thing. Actually believing that there's any legitimate probability of it happening is another. Even if there's a 0.001% chance of it happening, then this whole Drake...

    Which pretty much summarizes what many around here have been saying for years... Toronto is deep with 2nd and 3rd option type players (not to mention role player depth), but is lacking a true #1. Of...

    Very much so. He is willing to spend big bucks to win, but when all the spending goes for naught, he holds people accountable and cleans house. He knows very well that the best way for him to make...

    It's also going to be interesting to see what happens with Amir and Lou, as both of their contracts are up after this season as well.

    Considering the wear & tear on Amir's body and his wonky...

    It's beyond me how there can be like 8+ major sporting channels in this country, yet the nation's lone NBA team gets practically no pre-season coverage. On Saturday night there was something like 7...

    I hope that DC goes with a tight 8-man rotation for the most part (starters + Vasquez, Patterson and Williams), with JJ & Hansbrough being the distant 9th/10th men. All other players should be...

    The benefit of that is having an extra roster spot to help facilitate trades, as well as the savings against the cap.

    On the flip side, which I think is more in line with MU's approach, is that...
