  1. The one thing I will say for their trade value:...

    The one thing I will say for their trade value: JV's market is probably a little smaller. He's only a no-brainer trade for teams where:
    a) he's an upgrade on the team's current starting center,...

    I'm not sure if he's an absolute genius as much as he's just smart and reasonable in an profession (political commentary) in which very few people are both smart and reasonable.

    Any chance that the Marc Gasol rumours are being floated out there by the organization to try to get Jonas to pick up his intensity?

    I'm all for the Raptors going after Gasol, I just think a...

    Great. Now we're going to lose and it's all your fault for questioning the importance of game-thread starting.

    So you guys are saying we should get OKC to give us PJ3 as a throw-in when we do our sign-and-trade for Durant? Hmm, I suppose that would be alright.
  7. What is it that causes Monroe's bird rights to...

    What is it that causes Monroe's bird rights to vanish? I had thought that it was only when a player moves teams via free agency, but I've read lots of places that say that Monroe's bird rights are...
  8. If I remember correctly, they set up that last...

    If I remember correctly, they set up that last possession in such a way that it looked like an iso, and then at the last second Patterson popped open for a clean look. That's sorta what I was talking...

    Also, Bulls game is a crappy schedule because we're on the second game of a back-to-back, while they've got two days rest. I think we're competitive with Chicago when both teams are on short rest (as...
  10. Keep in mind that if if we sign and trade for...

    Keep in mind that if if we sign and trade for millsap, we do not get bird rights on him. He signed with Atlanta as a free agent, and has been there only two years. A player needs three years without...
  11. You seem to be thinking that as long as signings...

    You seem to be thinking that as long as signings are less than expirings, we're okay. But that's not how it works. The $30 million in expirings is only really significant for trades. Once it comes...

    I think his bird rights will count for a lot in trying to sign him over the summer. If the Raptors think he fits going forward, then it's worth it to get him now so that you give him a taste of our...

    One of my favorite things in the 2nd half: only 2 turnovers in the 2nd half, none in the fourth quarter.

    Agreed. Next summer is a really, really important one for Canada. Joseph's experience, and play at both ends of the court is going to be crucial. Right now, I'd actually put Ennis as the third PG on...

    Situationally, I'm okay with isos. In a tie-game scenario for example, it's really crucial that you make sure you get last shot, so that your worst-case scenario is OT. But timing a complex play at...

    Add Charlotte to the list of teams with parts for sale. Stein says they're aggressively trying to move Stephenson, but also that they're willing to 'talk turkey' on anyone on the roster that is not...

    They've played more games against Western Conference opponents than any team in the league, and only three of their 13 losses have come against sub-500 teams, all of those since Cousins went out....
  19. This is only the second game in the NBA this year...

    This is only the second game in the NBA this year in which both teams had 22 or more turnovers and 22 or more fouls. So, it's not our imagination that this was incredibly ugly. (The other was the...

    So many of our turnovers have been bad and unnecessary passes into the paint.
  22. Depends how desperate the Nets are to save money....

    Depends how desperate the Nets are to save money. Because they're so far over the tax threshold, every little bit they carve off their salary is a bonus for them.
    For example, if you think of KG's...

    Just to prevent this from becoming an all-Heslip-all-the-time thread, Khem Birch is also having an exceptional d-league season, averaging 16.2 pts, 10 rb including 4 orb, 2.6 blocks, 1.1 steals, 2.2...

    I'm not sure they've got the cap space for that. Existing contracts put them in the low $40s... high $40s if Smith picks up his player option. Then if they do get a high draft pick, that salary eats...
