    How about counting an intentional foul as two fouls against the defender (if a shooting foul, still just two shots, not 4, but defender picks up 2 fouls, 2 team fouls). That way, you can still...

    I wouldn't be disappointed if we drafted Skal over Murray. Although I also wouldn't be disappointed if we drafted Murray over Skal. Murray is definitely more of an NBA-ready move; Skal is a...

    A guy gets beat and so he grabs his guy before he picks up his dribble and can go in for a dunk. Instead it's a harmless side-out. That's a foul call that's only an advantage to a defender.
    Or...

    Yeah, 29 teams aren't winning a ring.

    29 teams also didn't get swept in the first round of the playoffs by a average margin of -14. 29 teams didn't get swept in the first round by a lower seeded...

    A slight downside to NYK seeming to start to fall apart now is that from Denver's perspective, they might be looking at this and thinking, 'hey, they're going to get us a really high pick, so we're...

    I don't think they have a first-rounder to trade, but Patterson and Biyombo for Porzingis makes the Knicks better in the short-term!

    Certainly earned a 10-day contract if a roster spot opens up. Don't need to offer him anything more than that in the short term.

    Really? You didn't pick up the fact that the whole post was an attempt to use as many egg-based puns as possible in response to the 'scrambled' pun? Poached? Fried? Over easy? Coddled?

    I'd rather he poach some defensive schemes from another team. Otherwise we're fried, and our season will be over, easy. That's what you get from a coach who's coddled his stars the whole time he's...

    Changes to intentional fouls coming?

    How do others feel about this?

    So I was watching some Ivan Rabb footage this morning, trying to get myself enthusiastic about the possibility of another PF if Ellenson is off the board when we draft. And all I can think of is how...

    I got Denver #1 and NYK #2 on literally my fifth try this morning. I will thus never use the site again and just let myself imagine that the odds of that scenario happening is around 1-in-5.

    Yeah, 538 has their odds of making the playoffs down to 5%. Trending towards 35 wins. There's still a big group of teams that are projecting toward the mid 30s, so there's still a big range that our...

    If Milwaukee is in firesale mode, I'm all over Henson. He's tough to trade for because he's got a poison-pill provision, But something like this works. (Plus draft-picks where necessary to even out.)...

    The salaries don't come close to matching. You'd need to include Patterson (or similar salary) as well... which would be okay, but moving those guys plus a couple firsts plus Powell seems like an...

    Yes! I was worried I wasn't going to get any sleep tonight. (still, rest him next game if it's not 100%... his health is way more important than any streak.)

    I was just thinking how good our end-of-quarter offence has been lately, and then I had a flashback to what our end of quarter offence was like last year. Such a 180-improvement.

    At 1606, Raptors have risen above an ELO rating of 1600 for the first time since the Atlanta post-all-star win last year. They've definitely got a chance to surpass the franchise high of 1634, set...

    I wouldn't hate Jeanne at 15 or 16. I still expect that Knicks pick to be 8-12 by the end of the season, and Jeanne would definitely be a tier below the guys available there.

    If he actually declares (any mock I've seen has him as a 2017 pick), I'd pick him with the Raptors pick, but probably not with the Knicks pick unless it's very late lottery. He's just so far away...

    Bench consistency would be huge. Benches shorten in the playoffs of course, but we need Ross, Patterson, and Joseph to hit their shots and play solid defensive minutes. If those guys are going, then...

    Honestly, if I was Cleveland and I wanted to win now, I would have reached out to Thibodeau. That would have been a crazy going-all-in mid-season hire, and would be far more likely to result in a...

    Maybe, but if that's the problem, is Tyronne Lue the guy to hold LeBron accountable? He's by all accounts, a likeable, player-friendly coach, but that hardly seems like he's going to give LeBron the...
