In fact, i predict the Nets will have a poorer record this year than they had last season.  TAKE THAT for data!

Of course the will have a poorer record. They have Kyrie and let D'Angelo go. They'll be a mess.

Basketball / Quote Function

Stars and other good players become available often for all sorts of reasons.  So I wouldn't take on Wall to get Beal.  Beal isn't a franchise changer.  Just a very nice player.

I'd like to get KAT too, but don't see why Minn would give him away just to move some clumsy contracts.

Knix best bet is to develop RJB, Knox and Mitch, and maybe Jr. Smith into a nice young core.  Add in some players who contribute and set a tone -- hopefully Randle is one.  And then pursue a star when we have an appealing team, and have upped the trade value of our current assets.  Might take a few years.  BKY pulled off such a feat.

Huh? Change of heart? All of a sudden you’re making a lotta sense. No more crazy trades? Good!!!

Making so much sense I had to use your favorite function. 👏

Just getting started:

How about Randle + Knox + Ellington + Franc
for
Brad Beal and Mahinmi?



How about Randle + Knox + Ellington + Franc + RJ Barrett + 5 #1 picks
for
A bag of beans?


Just make sure they’re EXPENSIVE beans.

Instead, you've built an atmosphere that will almost certainly diminish the value of each asset on the team.


If we have one specialty, that is certainly it.

And your specialty, pray tell.

Basketball / How to self-destroy
« on: July 12, 2019, 12:10:39 AM »
Indeed, that's not a bad little Thunder team....

Yeah, it starts by being cheap and let go of the Beard to save some money. Can you imagine what woulda been if they kept all three? Almost as self-destructive as you-know-who.

Is Houston now the favorite with Russ instead of Paul?

Basketball / Chico's Mysteries

Chico can be mysterious some times. Maybe he refers to this: https://www.nba.com/kings/news/kings-sign-justin-james

But most likely it's this: https://www.sacbee.com/sports/nba/sacramento-kings/article232461697.html

And someone must lose. You know who.

Awaiting Pharoah’s analysis.

Mercifully, it's not possible until mid-season.

He makes $47 million in a couple of seasons. He's had knee issues. He's a terrible fit stylistically next to RJ Barrett. He can neither take a team far as the #1 option nor adjust his game to be a #2 option. Needless to say, I am firmly of the belief his acquisition would be mostly a terrible idea.

To clarify, that's where his salary tops out at in a couple of years. He's in the $38m range now. He's such a bad idea (sorry Carlos).

No problem Biz, we ain’t gonna get him anyway.

Him and Mitch would combine for 60 ppg.

So, uh, who do we give OKC for the Westbrook contract, again?

Anything they want.

Well... except RJ and Robinson maybe.

I don't think we are adding a point guard, 'los.

That’s cool. Certainly much better than getting KI.

That's great for Celtics. Much better for them than prima-donna KI. Congrats Bank!

If Celts sign Enes Kanter and feed him, you may have something.

They should avoid feeding him too much or he’ll become a 400 pound player waddling around the court like donald trump at a summit meeting. No one wants to see that and it doesn’t win anything.

Well, Donaldo, like Chico, claims to be winning all the time, 400 pounds and all. Feeding is never too much.
