Do we get Draymond Green to go with Randle and Mitch?
Either next summer when he is an unrestricted Free Agent or at the next trade deadline?

And for once in a very blue moon...what Kam said!



*** if only to beat some motor and IQ into Kevin Knox on the off chance K2 is still in the league at that point

Pass.

I'm projecting Lakers at the top. I just think that Davis is that good. Not a typical star; he's extraordinary. And now he's playing with LBJ and a strong supporting cast.

I'm just realizing that for the first time in years, I can watch Golden State and pull for them. That should be pretty fucking cool.

Think totally dependent on LBJ aging status... he's damn near immortal by NBA standards, and if healthy, nobody, not Kawhi, not Giannis, not anybody, can pull a team like he can, but sooner or later father time has to kick in, maybe started to last year ...

I think we could see 85% LBJ this year.....

and they will still do quite well

Take a look at the updated roster

And of course you have the Frank Vogel effect

They could start Avery Bradley and Danny Green with their monster frontcourt.

I’d like to beat them when we play them & I'm glad the Knicks are not in the west.

Philly & Toronto switched places in my mind. Boston will be interesting. I hope they Keep Tacko. Scratch that. I hope they cut him and we pick him up.

Ignas has a little echo of Thunder Dan Majerle in him. He should earn himself some burn.

Crazy shit!

But I like it. My hope is to see 5 power forwards on the floor at the same time. You know, lead the way in innovative basketball.

Quote
We’ve been obsessed with this opponents’ shooting data for a while, in part because it sometimes seemed to track closely with players who had stronger or weaker defensive reputations than you would infer from other advanced statistics such as Real Plus-Minus.

Quote
[DRAYMOND] does get at one essential discovery we made in playing around with the opponents’ shooting data: the idea of minimizing openness. The main goal of shooting defense, especially in today’s spacing-centric, ball-movement-forward offensive era, is really to minimize the chance of an open shot.

#2 on last year's list:

Porzingis' name came up a bunch on that DRAYMOND rating.


And Knox didn't rate as badly as on other measures.  Sure he's still down around other weak defenders such as Collison, ETwuan, Kennard.  But also right behind Dotson, and ahead of Rubio and Portis.


Weird if the Knix are poaching another PF.
Portis might be playing SG by the time things have sorted out . . .

Seems Bullock failed his physical, or at least there were issues.
I'm not too keen on Bullock or Ellington.

But PF's, can't have enough of them in the modern game ...
