    That is, they can't offer wade and bosh the max and still have any cap space. They can still resign them at the max using their bird rights.
  2. Lebron wants max: Lowry ain't going to Miami

    http://espn.go.com/nba/truehoop/miamiheat/story/_/id/11156634/lebron-james-miami-heat-wants-maximum-salary

    According to espn, Lebron is insisting on being paid max money, regardless of where he...

    The team has played much better with Bargnani than without. Conversely, the team has played worse with Derozan on the floor than without him. The problem with this team is its wings. It has solid...

    Well, yeah, the wins produced guys believe it. It's kind of amazing: in my view a classic case of 'scientism' in action. But they genuinely believe that Ed Davis (and Reggie evans) are amongst the...

    Based on his shooting last season, he's below average. That said, I think is shooting was flukily bad, and hurt by the lack of training camp

    A fun game!

    The game is: guess how good some raptors are at drawing fouls compared to various superstars from other teams. The measure FTA/FGA, so it's not just how many free throws you shot, but how often you...

    Also, Jarrett Jack is one of the worst defenders in the NBA at the point guard position, whereas Kyle Lowry is perhaps the best. that's the real difference.

    One of the funny things about the...

    I think this highlights one of the biggest flaws in DeRozan's game: once he gets the ball, he doesn't create for others. This is one of the reasons his shooting percentage is so bad: he doesn't know...

    What is your starting 5?

    Lowry
    Fields
    Kleiza
    Bargs
    Johnson

    This is the lineup I would want on the floor the most if I was coaching. Bargs and Johnson play amazing together, Kleiza was a...

    You know, I'm not a huge Derozan fan (although i dont dislike him either) but I think the idea that he is soft and doesn't finish hard around the rim is bullshit, to be blunt. He draws a TON of...

    Amir should be kept. If Ed develops really well, he might become as good as Amir.

    Ed is a huge liability on offense. The team scores 9 less points per 100 possessions with him on the floor! This...
  12. Poll: No, the new guys don't have enough offense. They...

    No, the new guys don't have enough offense. They have Lowry and that's it. There's no way they could defend Calderon, DeRozan and Bargnani well enough to make up for Lowry having to go 1 on 5.

    Interesting article on DeRozan

    I'm more upbeat than this guy, but he gives an informed outsiders take and the concerns he raises are legitimate. The whole series is worth a read if you have some time and need an offseason NBA fix....

    Why would the Knicks be 3rd? They finished SEVENTH last year. Before Linsanity broke out, their record was 8-15. 8-15! Not only that, Landry Fields played the second most minutes for them, and they...

    I'm fine with just making the playoffs, as long as the team is on the way up and not the way down. I admit my own view of the Raptors is optimistic, but I do have reasons backing up my optimism: I...

    I don't think the Nets will take a season to work things out. Think about the Celtics: they won the first year they were together. Not that the Nets are winning anything, but you know what I mean....

    I agree with RaptorReuben's comments, except for two things:

    I think Kidd is done. I don't think he brings anything positive to the table at this point. I guess one plus is that the Knicks dont...

    Where the Raptors will finish in the east

    Since the rosters seem mostly settled, it's plausible (if maybe a little premature, still) to start forecasting how the east playoff race might look, and have an idea of where the Raptors are going...

    It is false unless that is the smallest contract Fields would have agreed to sign. So, fine 'not necessarily' false. How about 'almost certainly' false?

    Simmons is a fun read. I like his stuff. But not a journalist.

    About Landry Fields, though:

    In hindsight, sure, he could have traded bosh at some point for more than 2 draft picks. But he chose to instead use Bosh: have him play on the team. And that decision didn't turn out great. But I...
