The Great Dame Dream
Basically between Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard and Klay Thompson, fans are imagining a half-court three point shot contest every game. This might be a case of a trade being bad for both teams, though. I don’t see POR trading Dame unless he forces his way out, using either the James Harden Fat Suit or the Blake Griffin Dunk Boycott techniques. And for GSW, the resulting lineup would be quite unbalanced and need several more moves to make a workable lineup.
And here’s one from the twisted mind of Hollinger and Aldridge:
Did someone say ALL IN ? This is it. Win or bust in the next two years. And even if you win, you probably have a long fall as the group gets traded in their twilight for a reboot (I’m thinking the Celtics trading away their Big 3).
Hide and Siakam
Siakam had a big letdown season, but he was great the year before. I don’t think TOR values Wiggins and Wiseman too highly, so they’ll get more attractive offers than this from other teams.
