Can this group get it done? The rest of the NBA is in a massive arms race.
New trade thread:
Wow, is this gonna take a few minutes to fathom, and longer after the smoke clears.
Welcome home, GP2!!!
Wow.. I made myself go to first comment and read back all the comments. Dang! Looks like I missed some nail-biting excitement.
Welcome back GP2!! Just yesterday I was thinking about GP2 head scratches. Will get to see that again
And Denver got Thomas Bryant from the Lakers so they don't have to use DeAndre Jordan as Jokic's backup anymore. DeAndre may be on the buyout market.
I'm not getting the Kuminga for OG anyway. Lateral move at best and JK is 5 years younger.
I really, really hope that Kevin Love really does get bought out. He's basically a better Bjelica. We'd basically be last year's team with DDV instead of OPJ and a year's growth for JK/Poole and a year's decline for Steph/Dray/Klay. But I just can't see the motivation from Cle's perspective. At worst, he'll be their 2015 David Lee.
Seems on the surface like a logjam of guards; but I can see plenty of lineups with Payton or DDV as the de facto 3, since both rebound like forwards and can defend 1-3. Klay is also also basically a forward these days, more suited to banging with the Paul Georges and Kawhis of the world than to chasing little guys around the perimeter.
Steph, JP and Ty are the 1-2s; Wiggs and Kuminga move up ladder a lot of the time to the 4; Green, Loon, and JaMychal are the 5s.
Losing James is a little sad, to be sure, but we still got a veritable playpen full of kids (JP, JK, MM, PBJ, RR) to keep us warm.
Remember when we were comparing DDV to GP2?
Help I’m emotionally confused. Help send help. Do I miss Wiseman? Do I feel bad for downplaying his potential? Do I want GPII back this much? Do I care about second round picks? Do I understand the plan? Did my mommy ever truly love me? Helllpppp I’m lost….
Curry, Klay, Looney, and Dray are all probably ecstatic to have GP2 back. This could do wonders for team chemistry. Not to mention, renewed faith in the front office to back them up when it matters.
Now if we STILL can't contain dribble penetration then it might be time to starting relieving the coaches in charge of the defense of their duties.
Well, time to take a flamethrower to that permaculture food forest I planted on Wiseman Island. Fuck this. I’m off this rock.
OMGOMGOMG I JUST REALIZED!!! THE TABLES HAVE TURNED!
JK now has GP2's number.
Holy shit. Imagine playing DDV-GP2-Kuminga/Wiggins-Draymond-Looney together. Welcome to Downtown Clampdown!
The Warriors made a hard push for Raptors forward OG Anunoby at the trade deadline. However, I'm told Masai Ujiri's asking price was too high. Wanted Jonathan Kuminga, others, plus picks.
I'm so glad that trade never happened.
Great great news
