no surprise, but he might be out of our league
Does anyone remember how quickly Marks had the Nets back in contention despite not having any draft picks? Yes the Celtics got their core out of that trade, but after 3 years the Nets were in the playoffs and such a desirable team that Kyrie and Durant went there to burn it down. Not having high draft picks to develop allowed them put hungry vets trying to solidify their spot in the league on the court together around a failed number 2 pick that they got in a a trade and that’s a playoff team. Put that around the Warriors core and that’s a ‘22 champion. We are basically back to the Kwame Brown years of drafting where the bad teams (Rockets) will stay bad forever as they try to develop one teenager after another in the kiddie league while teams like the Heat are putting men out there and making playoff runs most years.
Just wana say @Eric, your efforts not taking the off season off and staying in the gym getting up shots while the other Mods live it up in DNHCanQn is really impressing the FO and coaching staff. Big minutes and a Poole-sized contract extension are in the works. Don't be surprised to get a call up to Dunleavy's office.
So much talking.
Warriors win 2024 title, 'cause reasons. Everything everbody is talking about works out.
Why do I get the feeling DDV will decline his P.O. as expected but he’ll end up going to PHO on the same deal.
Alright my timeline has me almost all in on Trayce Jackson Davis. If Lively still there at 19 you take him. If they trade back then yeah im ok with taking TJD but i hope they dont trade up and give up assets for Lively because theres a couple of players i like in top half of draft before Lively
If I have Devin Booker, why would I be looking for Bradley Beal? Isn't that a low-rent duplicate? You'd think they'd want some depth at wing, and some defense. Guys I think they should be targeting would be maybe a guy like Mikal Bridges, maybe Cameron Johnson for depth, that type of guy.
4 hours since the last big trade . . .
"Good news everyone, the Washington Wizards may be a playoff team in 3001." - the Professor.
[Robbins] Guard Jordan Goodwin has been told he’s likely being included in the Wizards-Suns trade, a league source told @TheAthleticNBA
Maybe a sign that CP3-to-somewhere-else is progressing?
Man if the 3rd pick is in play for Porzingis to Portland, id do that deal over anything the Warriors realistically have to offer 10 out of 10 times
[Gambadoro] Other teams that I have spoken too are just floored that the Suns got Beal for salary dump - one said it was Insane what the Wizards just did. They can't understand why Washington did not do what Brooklyn did with KD and just wait it out for a better deal.
Why do I get the feeling the Suns are never going to actually have any rings to show for this lol
Beal vs Paul? Really any difference? Both miss time, Paul more so in the PS, but at least understands D. Does Beal? I see why they want to move on from Paul but Beal?
How long before KD requests out of there?
This could be VERY annoying for our battle for good minimum players, the way the damned Lakers and Nets sucked up all the top free agents in 2021-22. Obviously we made it work :D
Suns under contract after this trade:
That's it. Those five players
[Hayes] The Washington Wizards are likely to reroute Chris Paul in a trade and the Los Angeles Clippers are expected to pursue a reunion with the future Hall of Famer, league sources tell @NBAonTNT, @BleacherReport.
hmm, Morris, maybe Batum or Gordon?
This is a monkey's paw situation. Like, "we will grant you Lively as you wished...but it will cost you Kuminga"
