Nice problem to have IMO.
That seems to be tricky part with Sullinger.
Lets hope his contract situation this year ends up being motivation for this season, and getting in shape may well be the only way to accomplish...
I'm kind of glad that NBA will play regular season to determine who finishes 1st, 2nd, etc...And I will go on a limb that Raps will likely do better than Celtics & just about everybody in the East...
Another way of looking at it is: We get a 15 mil dollar player/contribution/performance for 6.
I hate to tell you, but if you were to take James out, Cavs (with all the Kyrie's greatness) will be hard pressed to make playoffs.
At least IMO.
And on a lousy team in ONLY 25 mins.
In all fairness the whole Rockets team was somewhat dysfunctional. Easy for a young guy to get lost.
1 Year contract plus a team option -what do we have to lose?
I did not say contenders. Not sure what Masai thinks.
However, we were supposed to lose to Indy in 1st, for sure get destroyed by Miami & likely 0-4 vs Cavs.
With injuries to both Val & Demare, we...
You just realized that?
Out of curiosity, can we read anything from a fact that top 5-6 teams (Cavs, SA, GS, Clips, Raps, OKC-outside of trade) made virtually no signings?
Didn't we have 1 of those guys?
Ill go back to my proposal from 2 weeks ago (in a comment about Masai & Wasserman group started by Rudy B):
Horford agrees w To on 4 yr 80 mil (a bit of a discount for a chance to be on a really...
After all, players slightly better than Jones or Nicholson getting 10 plus mill? WTF.
Wait till fools GMs with a lot op cap space blow their loads then step in & get 1 or 2 guys for...
Mozgov was last serviceable center left.
(Noah to NY, Howard -no comments, Whiteside-Miami, ...)
Basically after Mozgov slim pickings. Lakers were desperate.
Also: This past season, he may have...
I'm not sure why last summer was disappointing.
Were those fancy signings (big name FAs)? No.
What was the goal? Improve compared to previous season (either short term or long term).
Lets not expect too much from a pick No 27.
How many guys picked after say 25 make a rotation? Starters? All stars?
A: Very few & its pure luck.
*How many un-drafted guys make it to an NBA...
I agree, but what does Orlando think?
They just traded an arm and a leg to get Ibaka for 1 year. Almost have to give him whatever he wants next year (otherwise look stupid).
With that in mind, what...
Not sure, I'd say "lots".
IMO Boston has best combo of great money & a very competitive team. Maybe Portland?
Then again KD & Horford go to __________(fill in the blanks -LA, 76ers...) they would...
No argument there. I was sure SA would be there in the end.
We are not Spurs & Casey & not Pop, we are Raps, team that went to game 6 of ECF & probably just as likely to be in division final next...
No argument (our bench was huge).
However, If Scola is gone (I'd say good bet regardless of Horford), in essence 2Pat starts (& thus gone from the bench) resulting in:
Horford starts w Norm off the...
If the player (FA) is only interested in max amount of money he can get -you are absolutely correct.
Just remember: there are D Wests in this world -he may be extreme, but lets...
Ask yourself this question:
Would we (Raps) have more success this year (reg season & playoffs) with Horford but without 2Pat, Ross & Wright? Or the other way around.
Keep in mind: With Horford, we...
Reality is, a player should & usually does rely fair amount on his agent for advice. "Feeling good" about your new boss (GM) & the organization he runs has to play a significant...
Because we can & they (Atl) have no choice -otherwise Horford goes to LA & they get nothing.
If that happens in the nutshell they get (& IMO can use) 2Pat, Ros & Wright for a non lottery 1st.
Teams that "push" small ball are invariably ones that do not have even a half decent option at 5 available (GS w Bogut might be an exception).
So, what are you supposed to do? Put 5 best...
I went for a walk after reading the whole post.
So here is my hypothetical scenario I came up with while walking.
Horford agrees w To on 4 yr 80 mil (a bit of a discount for a chance to be on a...
