I think its the most up in the air season for 3 years. We don't know where LeBron, Kawhi and PG will be. Boston will have a full strength team too.

Only things for certain. Raptors will s*** the bed in the playoffs, the Knicks will be s**** and Flip will say Aaron Gordon will be an all star this year.

Usually i'd expect similar ridiculous behaviour from our FO, but i get the feeling everything is just being geared around resigning Cousins and trying to get some serviceable wings if we can.

Assuming Cousins resigns i don't expect our summer to be that eventful tbh.

Canada also still believes in Andrew Wiggins though.

I've been disappointed in Wiggins tbh, thought he'd be way better than he's shown so far. He get's his 20 points on average efficiency but literally doesn't impact the game outside of that.

I do not understand Bagley being taken #2 at all. Ayton and Bamba could feasibly be preferable to Doncic just because of unmatched pure physical gifts, but Bagley over Doncic makes no sense to me.

I'm familiar with Luka's game and watched him several times. He is already a serious NBA rotation player right now. If he went to a good team, he'd be playing serious minutes in the playoffs the same way that Tatum and Mitchell were this season. I think he will also grow/improve as he adjusts to the NBA style.

It's been reported that everyone else told Sacramento they absolutely don't want to go. Bagley is the only one who was willing to come and work out, said all the right things.

It's a stupid decision, but you have to kinda empathize from a human standpoint.

He's really good. Just a lot of question marks fit-wise because he has short arms, can't shoot (yet), and doesn't know how to defend.

Difference is that Ayton can theoretically defend because he has good lateral footspeed and super long arms. He just has to learns how to.

Bagley doesn't have the physical tools to be a big-man defender at all. If he's going to become a good defender, he needs to defend more like a SF than a C.

Orlando might be f***ed. Desperately need playmaking and the Hawks reach for Trae. Nobody on the board that they need.

These kids are really becoming extra irritating. Just get drafted first and prove you can play before you start making demands like a whiny little princess.

Was just reading how SGA refused to workout for the Cavs and told them he wouldn't play for them, so he didn't want them to pick him.

I mean for goodness sake ... just shut up and go and do a great job, and make something of the team.

This is the entitled generation for sure. Disgraceful stuff in my opinion.

Better playmaker and defender though. 

He's the ideal 6th man who can play the point and shooting guard or be that solid 3rd contributor behind two studs.  No one is claiming he'll be Klay Thompson, but he has the game to carve himself a solid decade niche.

Shitty free agent PG - Fournier - Gordon - Isaac - Bamba

Gonna struggle to break 80 points a game.

Gonna struggle to break 60 points a game, and we'll give up like 75 and have the same record as this year, win the final game and f*** ourselves out of another Luka and Trae Young.

Also f*** the Hawks and the Mavs for that.

I actually like Bamba as a pick after sleeping on it, provided we deal Vuc and his contract; hopefully we'll also deal Fournier at some point (Evan over Dipo, can't ever get over that s*** stain...) and eventually Biz.

ho hum, we are going to f***ing suck next year so already looking forward to being dissapointed in the nba draft next year.

Oh and as far as the Lakers go, they need to sit tight and let that group they have come along nicely.

Could potentially have a Golden State type situation there if Lonzo, Hart, Kuzma, Ingram and Randle come along.

Try and add some quality vets on one or two year deals like Philly did with Reddick, Belinelli and Ilyasova last season. Maybe grab Mario Hezonja who would really fit their style of play, as he was really coming along towards the end of last year.

Was going to say, feels like NFL changes overnight more often than the NBA does. I mean we've had the same finals 4 years running :lol:

The positives of the NBA is the ridiculous amount of talent coming in every year where even bad teams have at least one ridiculously good player.

As well as the rapid development of young players, I've never seen a young player in any other sport go from meh one year to all star level the following year as often the NBA seems to.

But the process of teams becoming stacked seems to take awhile unless you add LeBron James who obviously is an all time great outlier.

They had key pieces (Gurley, Goff, Donald) already in place when McVay took over. He’s done a great job with them, no doubt.

NFL success is still generally built up over 2-3 seasons, whereas you can take the Miami Heat, add LeBron and Bosh to D-Wade and immediately win a conference championship (followed by two rings). It’s just the nature of the sport, NFL rosters are 70-deep whereas you can have 2/5 basketball players be all-stars and have a winning team.

The closest equivalent I can think of is actually the Browns going into next year. They’ve massively revamped their roster, it’ll be interesting to see how they fare.

Used to happen quite a bit in Baseball - like when the Yankees added peak steroids Roger Clemens in the middle of their dynasty and traded for peak A-Rod after making something like 6 World Series in 8 years, however the money seems to be shared around a lot more these days (or more likely the other big teams learnt how to properly monetise their brands like the Yankees).

Yeah that's fair - you're probably right, especially given the roster size issue. I thought of the Rams because only Donald was performing like a stud.

I don't believe this s*** from some of the talking heads letting Cousins off the hook because no offers were made for him. Maybe not ones he wanted. Maybe not formal, firm offers. But there's no way no one made contact, and, if they did, there's no way he said yeah just give me the mid-level exception.

They are taking Cousins word and running with it, pretty much every reliable New Orleans reporter said we made an offer more than 3x what Golden State offered and i imagine others did too.

I refuse to believe any of that considering how public the Owner, GM and Davis were about wanting him to stay. He obviously wanted to join a team where he could win while he rehabs in case it goes badly.

That's fine and all i just don't understand why he's felt the need to leave in such a bad way.

Lavine has the higher potential, though. His shooting stroke is smooth, could easily put up 25ppg in two years when his offensive game matures. Smart just doesn’t have that upside, IMO.

Don't know what makes you believe that tbh. There were only 9 players who averaged 25 ppg last year and Zach Lavine isn't even 10% of the player that any of them are.

Bucks :spit:

They would have finished 10th in the West last year, they only made the playoffs in the East because teams like Detroit and Charlotte are absolutely awful. They are massively overrated because they have Giannis.

Philly wouldn't either, we all saw what happens when Simmons is forced to shoot. The only team in the East who would compete with Houston (despite their losses)  is Boston.

I like Bud but people have been overrating Bucks every year for like 4 years and every year they disappoint.

Tbh I don't think that much of what Houston has done, in fact my hot take for this season is they will drop off more than we will but I still rate them higher than all of the East not called Boston.

The East's reputation is well earned and have nothing to suggest they deserve anything more.

I didn't want Bud at Toronto as I didn't think he could take us further than Casey. There is a big difference in working with Giannis than DeRozan. I think he will do well there.

My hot take for this year is the Thunder will be the second best team in the West.

Nobody was shitting on Portland before we swept them funny that.


I did. Didn't like the match-up. Thought N.O's backcourt (with play-off Rondo showing up on D too) had the tools to shut down Portland's pick & roll.

I thought they overachieved, on the back of a hot run of form around the turn of the new year. Take that hot stretch of the equation (where the supporting cast of 3&D forwards and roleplayers were knocking down 3's, even Turner was shooting about .400 from deep) and they were slightly better than a .500 team. The only match-up I wanted (for Portland) in the first round was the monstrosity that was OKC.

They'll then be looking to rebuild then.

If it wasn't for the emotional attachment to DeRozan i'd consider that a steal, DeRozan aside they are giving up f*** all. Even if he doesn't want to stay they still have their young core/bench which was arguably the best thing about Toronto last year anyway.

Thought Spurs would get more than that.

I think you have to pull the trigger on this deal, although its a huge gamble. With DeMar I could see the Raptors losing to Philly in the second round or we may even make the finals if it breaks right for us but we get swept by the Warriors in the worst finals of all time. With this deal we would have a shot at beating them IMO, not a great shot but better than the Cavs last year but less than the rockets.

I'm excited by this and devastated at the same time, I imagine its how Boston fans felt about the IT and Kryie trade.

There's a lot of factors at play really. Kawhi's mental state, the fact DeRozan was a beloved player for the fans which does matter.

With that said I do like the deal for Toronto, I was expecting them to give up way more younger assets than they did so even if Kawhi leaves they can pivot into a different direction pretty easily.

I mean that's clearly not true, if it were they would have put absolutely zero effort against Cleveland as they knew they can win anyway.

The fact of the matter is the West were way more competitive than people expected, Houston took them to 7 games and might have won if Chris Paul didn't get injured.

If they weren't trying I suspect they would have stopped that long before it gets to 7 games.

They put in very, very little effort against Cleveland.

They underestimated Houston and were cruising for a few games before they realized they were in actual trouble. Turned it on eventually, but it wouldn't have been a series if they were engaged from the start.

Once again, Iguadola's injury made it more competitive than it was looking like after Game 3. They lost by a grand total of what, 7 points, in the next two games without Andre? Just citing the CPIII injury without taking Andre's injury is once again not putting an accurate picture on it. Obviously Paul is more vital than Iguadola, but his calming presence can't be overstated. but 2015 is a much better one to cite important injuries. green and Bogut cost them 2016, but that would have pretty much meant that they didn't get Durant. Very skeptical that the Spurs could have taken 4 games off of them in 2017, even though they were sitting pretty at halftime in Game 1.

Green got suspended because he's a dumb f***, and a 33 year old 6th man missing a few games is not the same as a HOF point guard pulling a hammy. If anything LRMAMs should injury cancelled out Iggy's.

Green is a dumb f***, but your assessment of Iggy is inaccurate, man. Once again, they lost by a total of 7 points in those two games. It is really irritating when people just use the argument that we are claiming that CPIII and Iggy are the same. No one is claiming that it is like for like when anyone points out Iggy's loss had a massive effect. 7 points.

It is highly likely that Iggy's presence would have affected one of those games, and then it's 3-2 to Golden State in Oakland. Iggy is still a significantly more important player to Golden State than LRMaM was for Houston though.

I think Iggy is one of these players who is massively underrated or overrated. I don't think he has that big of an influence as GSW fans would expect. Every team has one of these guys.

Post by: QuakesMag on Monday 23 July 2018, 09:58:01 am
Think that's a bit unfair to the impact Iggy has had. Even in the Cleveland series, they were a different team with him playing. We are talking about such fine margin victories with him out and CPIII still in. I just think it's a fairly lazy argument that things would have been different if Paul was healthy without considering his obvious impact, and the likely result of Game 4 if he played.

And every team has one of these guys? Not sure about that. a sixth man on a generational team. That's like saying Tony Kukoc was just a dime a dozen player.

If LeBron does any of that whining in LA he is finished. Their fans will turn on him completely.

Even when LA were trash when it was just Kobe. Kobe still came out every game like a madman and never bitched.

He only got away with that nonsense in Cleveland because that was his home town team, and they have been awful historically.

It oculd be really bad for LeBron, because at this point I don't think he can actually control himself. Always looking to pass the blame elsewhere.

Lebron is awesome. Off the court he is everything you want a superstar athlete to be. Him and Federer are the two models for off the pitch behaviour. Ronaldo is great as well but his on the pitch behaviour sucks. Messi has no off the pitch personality.

Both Don Lemon and LeBron are a pair of wussie, diva, cry baby men to be fair.

I see part of the whole LeBron to LA thing is now to start trawling him out as another stooge to push political agendas along with all of those Hollywood schmucks. All making a whole lot more sense now. Just when I though the guy couldn't be any more irritating.

These are all some of the dumbest people on Earth and I have no idea why they think people would ever care for their opinions, rather than allow people to do their own research into things and actually think for themselves.

Trying to use "celebrities" to influence people's thinking. So obvious and pathetic man. My goodness.

Ah. Then I might not make it in time. If it was GMT I'd be able to make it. So either keep it at 8 players, push the draft an hour or I'll autodraft first.

He has a lot of facets to his game. Rebounder, mid range, outside, post game, decent passer. Just a bit slow really. Defence was only awful when he was on the floor with DeRozan.

It's a huge argument in the Raptors community. JV Stans vs DeRozan Stans. About 25% of our fan base thinks JV is our best player but was shelved by Casey. Nick Nurse loves him though.

Here ye! Here ye!

Hot take on the eve of the NBA season.

My Bucks are looking very interesting under coach Bud. Celtics and Sixers beware. We might be coming out of the East!

Here is my sleeper team overall this season though ... Atlanta Hawks! Barring injuries they will make the playoffs.

Not really due to Trae Young either. Alex Len is set to breakout and with John Collins and their two 3 and D wing men they will be a good team.

Trae Young will be good too IMO, but will have his ups and downs. However The Hawks won't suffer too much when he dips as Jeremy Lin will be a solid backup for him.

Lou Williams, Evan Fournier, Jordan Clarkson
Tobias Harris, Kawhi Leonard
Draymond Green, Thaddeus Young, Jaren Jackson Jr, Taj Gibson
LaMarcus Aldridge
+ Nerlens Noel (but will change this player accordingly to matchups etc)

Also Magic will suck bad this year but excited to see Mo Bamba and Jonathan Isaac. These guys could become beasts.

Should have stuck with their young core. Dummies.

Philly will be better for not getting LeBron while the Lakes will be much worse.

The league is about spacing, moving the ball and shooting now. Guys that dominate the ball don't win anymore.

Now he is out of the East he will be exposed. Very rigid player.

AD was arguably the best individual at both ends last year but the reality is Harden led a team to 65 wins and New Orleans were a 6 seed.

Winning matters with this stuff and it's why he hasn't won it since his Miami days.

Happy for AD man. Looking really good for him. If this keeps up he won't leave.

I will remind you that I thought you'd be better for losing Cousins.

I think just for saving on throwing another max at him it was a good move, as I don't think it would have made you significantly better to justify it.

As I felt when the trade went down last season, Mirotic was an outstanding get as he fits in Gentry's system beautifully. Randle is looking good too and you got him for great value.

Elfrid again, nice pickup. He can just play his game at the Pelicans without worrying about his scoring or threes as much, because there is so much firepower around him. Plays good defence and distributes well.

Looking very good man :thup:

Big win for you guys, Very early but I know what you mean. It's a nice early statement after getting Kawhi. Green looks good at shooting guard too.

Tbf when i said that i thought we'd just get a back up big who just rebounds and does nothing else, not Julius Randle who fits us so insanely well.

Also i still believe the ceiling with Cousins was higher, but the consistency with this group is probably much better and therefore the floor is probably a lot higher than what Cousins would have been. I'm just going to enjoy it while it lasts, we are going to be so fun to watch this year and whatever happens after that i'll deal with when it happens.

But i'm so shocked by Payton though, he's been way above the level i expected from him. I think his play is sustainable as well, he's not doing anything which seems beyond what he's capable of.

Yeah man. If you look back there was a ton of hype around Elfrid his first season at Orlando.

The problem was that the team there in general was so poor that it was easy to then start picking at his shooting and scoring, as the team needed so much more of that from him.

He'll be really good for you. He's a talented player. And YET AGAIN the Magic have thrown away another promising player.

Phoenix were West Orlando though :lol:

We play at the fastest pace of the league and have 3 very skilled bigs and arguably the best defensive guard in the league next to him.

So his job is pretty simple, on the face of it I shouldn't really have been surprised he's excelling but I heard so many bad things about his defence specifically that it's hard not to be pessimistic.

A big part of it was down to the Suns really falling in love with putting the ball in Booker's hands more, as he was fantastic in pick and rolls.

They therefore needed someone that could be a spot up shooter in those instances, which Elfrid will never be really.

At New Orleans the ball can stay in his hands more so.

Bucks and Raptors are looking good man.

I thought Boston for sure out of the East this year, but it's not going to be easy.

I really think it might end up being Kawhi and the Raptors.

Kawhi and Green are such great additions and have really provided that team an x factor. They're so dangerous now.

Boston are still integrating Haywood into things and so a bit early to judge but it's going to be interesting.

Think Raptors are going to win this and think Kawhi will end up staying in Toronto. Great city, very deep team and he'll be the star of that town for many years. Not sure why he'd go to LA to play second fiddle in that town even if he did end up with the Clips.

I feel sorry for whoever has the number 1 pick man :lol:

Passing on Zion will be tough if he carries on like this. The hype will be through the roof.

Barrett is the more cultured player, and is a worthy number 1 pick, due to his fantastic skill set.

Having said that ... Zion will sell out arenas from day one man. There is nothing like him in basketball.

Apparently he would be the second heaviest player in the league right now at 285 pounds. And he has a 45 inch vertical and can dunk from the free throw line.

He's also got a good well rounded game. He can push the ball and can pass it. Very good taking people off the dribble, and his jumper appears to be passable. He also plays with a ton of energy. In this league of positionless basketball you could see him playing a type of Draymond role with a ton more athleticism and excitement.

The annoying thing about that quote is first two games aside he's not been very good this season.

He doesn't even need to perfect tbh, just playing at the level of Jrue or Mirotic would be great who have been way better most of the time.

If he wants to leave that's fine, but straight up lieing for an outlandish quote isn't necessary.

I'm just saying lol, we don't need him to play at a MVP level right now. It would be nice of course but even if he just Mirotic level we would be winning way more games than we have.

That quote paints this picture he's been amazing and his team mates have sucked when that hasn't actually happened.

Obviously we need Davis to be at his best, I'm just saying he's been so far below his usual standard that just being as good as his team mates would be a significant improvement.

I don't want to go there yet, outside of the quote he's been very complimentary of his team mates and has been since.

It's going to take more before I believe that considering how much evidence there is to the contrary. I hope it doesn't happen anyway, leaving is one thing but leaving with bad blood is another and I don't feel like it's necessary.

We'll see next summer anyway, which has always been the deadline since he signed the extension in 2015 anyway.

They had it last year and look what happened in the playoffs, they couldn't beat Boston because Simmons was the only who could provide penetration.

Teams who rely on shooting flame out in the playoffs, literally all of them did. Elite defense, multiple playmakers are way more important than shooting.

Besides signing shooters for the league minimum happens every year after Christmas, it wouldn't be hard to do.

But for this season it would have been a brilliant starting 5, doesn't matter now though.

Despite the fact we're winning there's a few things I'm not happy with.

Siakim has scored twice in transition because AD didn't get back and there's been multiple times where we allowed 2nd chances due to poor effort on the defensive boards.

Will need to clear that up if we have any chance of winning, but that aside it's been pretty good I suppose.

Not as good as it looks IMO, CP looks a shell of himself and is shooting sub 40%.

Did it knowing that CP3 might be dead by the time the playoffs comes and it's a money league. But got Jrue, Dray, Dragic, Kawhi, Aldridge, Tobias Harris, Jaren Jackson, Taj Gibson, Clarkson, Joe Harris + Quinn Cook who's a streamer.

I know, but as I posted above, CP3 is great and with Harden back he's bound to get back to the same numbers as last year meaning he gets me plenty of points everywhere. My team is quite all around, except at FG% and 3PM where it's been bottom. I'm leading the league with 6-3, 8-1, 8-1 and 5-4 wins in the first four weeks (didn't dominate last week because Dray, Dragic and Kawhi missed a few games). It's categories counting. So starting out 27-9 for the first four weeks is pretty decent.

I expect to top the league in AST, Steals now as well as improve on TO's and rebounds which are categories I'm above the league average. FG% is quite easy to improve with streamers like Cody Zeller that doesn't hurt one.

Yeah, some teams are quite decent. Two guys absolutely f***ed up their drafts, including the one I'm trading with. Hence he needed two more average players than a very good one. I'm unsure on Eric Gordon, but he's droppable if he keeps shooting below .400 in FG%.

Dunno about that, fine line between Superstar and middling player who doesn't really help and I agree.

It's incredibly hard to find that one guy who changes everything for everybody. Not to mention stacking up on young players really doesn't seem to work, I do think just tanking by itself unless you get really lucky isn't enough by itself.

Draymond actually said to KD to go ahead and leave because they don't need him and they won without him! He said this right there on the bench!

Draymond is a special kind of asshole man. Bear in mind he was the one that called KD first and recruited him first to join them.

Imagine he says this to KD because that man demanded the ball in an end of game situation, as he should do! Something as simple as that, and he went there?! Phenomenal.

Incredible stuff. No way in the world KD stays. If I were him I would actually request a trade and really shake things up.

Draymond is incredible man. Cost them one chip and now has cost them KD staying. Amazing.

I would like Beal but I'm not sure we have the assets to make it work.

Wall even ignoring his contract and play would make Jrue passive which is something I don't want. Porter would technically be a great fit and fill a massive hole, but his contract is a concern which I'm not sure you want to pay if you aren't a contender by trading for him.

They've brought in some young lottery picks that have been written off too soon, and Fitz has really got them going it seems. Nice to see tbh.

If the likes of Mudiay and Vonleh turn into the kind of prospects they were originally projected as that would be unreal for you guys.

Probably because I watched the 2 of them at the same time but I think he’s got a bit of Harden to him. Not in the going to the rim sense but the way he makes space to get his shot off. I’m really excited to see how he looks after a full year of NBA strength and conditioning.

If they had have taken Doncic, they would not be the worst team in the league, with less chance of a top 4 pick.

In a few years Doncic could be a stranded superstar, and Atlanta could have Trae + Reddish, Zion or Barret + another top 10 pick from this draft.

No doubt Doncic is has a top 5 ceiling but Trae Young could still be a star in this league.

At the same time it could back fire and Atlanta miss on Dallas' pick this year and miss out on the top 4 this year.

Why would Doncic be stranded?  I get they struggled to get talent around Dirk after 2011 but in theory there's no reason why Dallas shouldn't be able to recruit talent to join Doncic once Dirk retires.

True, but I don't think Dallas will be many players first choice to go and play with a 20 year old kid for a 7/8 year vet.

Toronto are a beautiful team man. Just look at the balance of their box score. Gorgeous.

I genuinely think Kawhi would be crazy to leave this situation. It's very much his team already, and it is such a great situation.

However ... the Raptors should be very concerned about how well the Clippers are playing right now, because Kawhi could slot in there seamlessly, as that team is setup for him to join and be the face off also, and he wanted to be back in LA. He would make them even better, and they are already a great team of good team players.

When I was 19, my greatest achievement was not killing myself and having double digits in the bank account by Sunday morning.

Doncic on the other hand is 19 and went on a lone wolf 11-0 run with 4 minutes left in the 4th to beat the Rockets.

Because they quite clearly want leadership, yes they should just blow it up but if they aren't doing that they should try to help with the locker room chemistry.

Also they gave up nobody lol, both players are trash.One thing i learned today and yesterday is NBA Twitter thinks way too highly of Kelly Oubre, he's barely been an NBA level player during his career.

In fact his Plus Minus has been a net negative every year in his career, he's not good.
Title: Re: NBA 2018-19
Post by: TRC on Saturday 15 December 2018, 05:32:46 pm
I think Oubre is just in a bad situation, he has his faults but put him in a real organisation like Boston, Raptors, GSW or Spurs and he would flourish imo.

I think Ariza has been massively overrated because of the team he was on last year. He would slot in well on a well coached defense but on the Wizards I can't see it.

Title: Re: NBA 2018-19
Post by: Mole_Toonfan on Saturday 15 December 2018, 06:24:28 pm
The fact Houston has fallen apart without him says otherwise tbh, also wherever Ariza goes he has a positive impact. Hell one of the better seasons Washington had in the Beal/Wall era was with him before he left for Houston.

Someone should check on Mole today.

I'm actually happy about it, it's been obvious for weeks that it was going to happen. AD going public now stops the franchise from deluding themselves and instead becoming sellers.

With that said i severely doubt it's going to happen before the deadline, main reason being is Boston can't get involved till the summer and not involving ourselves with teams who could have the no 1 pick is completely moronic.

There's no real reason from our point of view to trade before the summer and everything which come out today about AD ending the season with us says as much.

I've wanted us to sell at the deadline for a while now, we should be shopping Randle, Mirotic and Moore and getting all the assets we can and AD doing what he did forces that so i'm pleased.

I'll be even happier if we get a new coach and GM but that's probably not happening.

So LeBron basically created a sports agency and put his boy in charge just to facilitate him getting more help? Guy is so cringe man. My goodness.

Looks like the Pelicans have been getting advice from the Spurs and will not trade him to the Lakers under any circumstances.

This is going to be quite funny. LeBron is going to end up stuck on the Lakers with no super friends for a good while.

Looks like the Pelicans have struck some gold with their reclamation project Jhalil Okafor too, which is super nice for them.

Looks like he's over his immaturity issues and is in great shape. Only just turned 23 last month. And a former number 3 pick.

Should help make the transition from Davis a lot less painful.

Philly won it 2 years in a row despite the league hating that they tanked, and they sent poor DeAndre Ayton to Phoenix who were one of the main reasons the league changed the lottery rules. Anthony Davis got sent to the Pelicans. Its not fixed.

Nothing can improve your play. You have no players, really.

The key thing is how players have developed under him.

Vonleh and Mudiay have become viable assets under him. Knox is coming along okay, and i'm sure eventually Robinson will too.

He hasn't been watching, just like how he said Atlanta will be surprising good etc etc. He watches highlights and follows and stats and that's it.

He probably likes Fizdale because of his outbursts in the past, he's not fooling me.

Check Atlanta's performances when they've had everyone healthy. No one has had more injuries.

Knicks are full of reclamation projects and Fizdale has added value to a lot of those players. Sixers are pushing for a trade for Vonleh who has been fantastic. No one wanted him in the summer. Mudiay is far more valuable now too. Knox is coming along nicely. What you thought that team was going to challenge in the east without Porzingis? You guys are weird.

Fizdale gets guys playing hard. Anyone with any sense can see how hard the Knicks have been playing this season and have been competitive in most games. Would be a great coach for a young guy coming into the league.

Hey man just go and lay down somewhere and drink your Anthony Davis tears man. You know nought!

I mean Brooklyn hit it big with that young center they have, D'Angelo has been just below all star level and Dinwiddie has been very good too. They have a lot of versatile players that can play both ways. It's a really good collection of guys, similar to the way the Clippers are.

You guys need to get more talent in. Very harsh to judge Fizdale with the group you have. I mean they have even stopped playing Kanter so they improve their draft status.

The only thing I can think is that Kristaps told the team that he was signing the QO, and leaving in 2020 and there was not anything that would change his decision. That is the only reason to do this trade now. Even still, the offer they accepted is a strange one to move forward with given that there is time before the deadline. Dennis Smith is OK, but I'm not sure what value the pick even has. Dallas traded this year's pick for Doncic, so the one the Knicks are getting is either far in the future or from a different team.

Did we do the Phil trade and get LESS?

..yeah, pretty sure we would have given you Jaylen Brown and a first that's actually worth something back then.

:lol: I mean that's even less considering the Knicks got two firsts.

I mean, real firsts. Mavs are going to be good. Could probably have gotten the remaining Brooklyn pick we sold off for Kyrie.

Apparently this also means that Dallas has voluntarily removed the 1-5 protection on their pick this year (owed to the Hawks in the Doncic trade.)  They would not have been able to trade an unprotected 2021 first without doing so.

So you'd give them the Memphis pick you have? just curious considering you'd have to give up picks like that for AD. Just wonder if you would give up a pick like that for Porzingis.

Based on what he went for I think I'd lower my willingness to give up stuff significantly.  Then again, could just be Knicks being the Knicks.

Oh my word ...

So the Mavs just landed Porzingis AND Tim Hardaway Jr. for a point guard they didn't want, a center that is a bit of a dinosaur now, and a crock of a shooting guard. Yikes!

Mavs building around Porzingis and Doncic man. Oh my goodness. Hardaway and Barnes are very decent wing players too. Very nice move for them.

Well ... the Knicks must have something brewing for the summer. In the meantime they can enjoy Dennis Smith Jr's dunk highlights.

Feels like while everyone was making a fuss about Anthony Davis, the Mavs sneaked in and nabbed Porzingis. Sharp manoeuvre.

Mavs got Courtney Lee too I just saw. Solid depth.

So nice of the Knicks to help the Mavs out this way.

Nah man, Kuzma, Ingram and Ball have more star power and so could even be potentially flipped to other teams at some point for different pieces.

Hellllll no, it's just a bunch of role players. Look last year they were a 35 win team with that core, and this year without Lebron they've been similarly trash.

I don't care how many players they offer if they aren't giving us potential stars or picks that matter ( their picks are irrelevant) When you trade a MVP level player you want one of 3 things; draft picks, stars or potential stars and sometimes a combination of all 3.

Boston can at least offer some of those things, Ainge has made it pretty clear that everyone but Kyrie is on the table so that's where we'll go i imagine unless Knicks get the no 1 pick.

Nobody, especially not Danny Ainge is dumb. Also Tatum lit up the playoffs last year but that hasn't changed anything, reality is he's not Anthony Davis and he never will be and Ainge knows it.

It's going to be interesting that's for sure.

It will also be fascinating to see how that bunch of Lakers youngsters end up as players if they do get moved on to other teams. So hard to tell how good they can really be. I do still like Ball a lot, and feel he would work nicely in Phoenix alongside Booker, which may be a possibility apparently.

Good luck dealing with Ainge though. I'm with TRC on that. Tricky business.

He's not said that publicly because he can't but every single report hints at it and the quote he has said publicly basically confirms it IMO.

https://boston.cbslocal.com/2019/01/31/anthony-davis-trade-rumors-celtics-danny-ainge-jayson-tatum-jaylen-brown-nba/

The way he words that tells me he's not keeping them away from a trade, if he didn't plan on trading them he would be way more definitive.

As i been saying if he promises it and then goes back on his word then he's basically done as an NBA exec and no one is that dumb.

It's a moot point anyway, i don't rate the Lakers players at all but they are basically giving up a team for him :lol: If he wants him and he's more obsessed about Davis than any other player he will put Tatum in the deal.

Even if he changes his mind on a promise he may or may not have had, I think it's fair enough things change down the line. Look at DeRozan, something changed in the space of a week and Masai went back on his promise if you can even call it that.

That's not the same thing though, promising you won't trade a player is different to promising with another executive what a deal and going back on it.

The DeRozan stuff happens all the time, what i'm describing does not.

I think a lot of people would. They'd most probably have talked about it. Everything points towards AD playing for the Lakers man.

If I'm the Pels I'm asking for Ball, Kuzma and Ingram + a few picks. I'd probably add Lance and Rondo as well as give up Solomon Hills contract. That would be a great rebuild. No idea if the contracts match and what it would take to make the trade but that be heck of a deal for both sides imo.

It's not because we have no interest in their offer. Doesn't really matter what his camp wants, as seen with Paul George and Kawhi Leonard.

People will saying those teams won't give up anything for a rental because it suited the Lakers motivations, they are trying to low ball every team because they are arrogant t***s who think it doesn't matter because we're the Lakers.

The problem for LA is of course Lebron's age and impatience at this point in his career, the Lakers cannot really wait to improve, even though are really a very young team. Outside of that, this ordeal reminds me of the Carmelo trade for the Knicks. If a player has 100% decided that they are coming to your team in free-agency, why are you trading nearly every important player on your team for them? I suppose the extra year on his deal complicates things.

Post by: KaKa on Tuesday 5 February 2019, 03:18:44 pm
Not even sure any of us can really appreciate the young talent the Lakers have yet.

D'Angelo Russell has really come on for Brooklyn, Randle has improved significantly at New Orleans, and even Larry Nance has had some really nice moments at Cleveland.

Throwing away a lot of very nice young pieces a lot of whom might look a lot better away from Luke Walton who I am not convinced by at all.

Title: Re: NBA 2018-19 - There is no God
Post by: Mole_Toonfan on Tuesday 5 February 2019, 04:55:25 pm
Randle has improved significantly at New Orleans

Take it from someone who actually watches the games, no he hasn't he's hot trash. Everyone looks at the box score and think he's doing great but the reality is very different. He has no idea what he's doing off the ball, he doesn't set screens at all, he can't protect the rim, he doesn't contest shots or prevent any type of penetration.

Then there's issue that on offense if the ball isn't in his hands ( which with Anthony Davis is obviously a problem) he just stands around and does nothing.

The positives are he's quite good for instant offence and a decent passer in transition or semi transition, but none of that outweighs the bad. Jah Okafor has been miles better than him this season, it's just a shame he didn't get many minutes until Davis got injured.

Never been a LeBron guy man. Always quick to blame others when things aren't going well, but is so happy to bathe in all the glory and adulation when things are great.

Has this reputation of being a great leader, but he clearly isn't one. We've seen it time and time again. He poops on his team mates and coaches all the time when they need him the most.

I expect the media to start trashing his teammates today too, and the age old rhetoric of how LeBron needs help will be rolled out again.

However ... over the last couple of months I've seen James Harden turn things around for the Rockets single-handedly, playing alongside G-League players with Paul, Capela and Gordon out at various times, and even all out at the same time for a brief period.

I don't think we'll deal with anyone before the deadline because it means locking out potential offers from the Knicks and Celtics, it's in our best interests to be able to field as much offers as possible.

But when the summer comes Clippers definitely have the draft capital to compete with everyone else now.

I like the move for you. Think Gasol gets back to his best in your team

As you said his passing and 3 point shot are going to be a massive upgrade from what JV provided. Better defender too.

Great move IMO. Makes you more fluid. Links up with his Spain teammate Ibaka too, so some familiarity there, which I like.

The most likely outcome, if the Lakers don’t land Davis before Thursday’s deadline, is Los Angeles will try again to swing a deal with New Orleans this offseason. The Lakers also can turn to free agency in their attempt to build a legitimate title contender around James.

Vecsey is skeptical, though. And he believes the Lakers might be better off in the long run if they swallow their pride and move on from James, although it’d obviously be difficult given how frequently Los Angeles’ young players have been mentioned in trade rumors in recent weeks.

“He’s doing everything wrong,” Vecsey said of James during Wednesday night’s radio interview, per WEEI.com. “He was supposed to take these guys under his wing; instead he threw them under buses, planes and trains. Clear the roster. He’s got no respect for anybody.

“Davis is a good player. There’s no question he’s an All-Star, but what has he done? He hasn’t been good enough to take anybody anywhere worthwhile. He’s only gotten them to the second round once and the playoffs twice.”

So, what’s the new master plan?

“If I’m the Lakers, I try to trade LeBron for a couple of key pieces, keep all those young guys, and move forward,” Vecsey said.

Well, that sure would be the boldest move the Lakers could make.

Oh it's about to hit the fan for sure!  ;D ;D ;D

Unless he just didn't care anymore ( which i doubt considering his personality) i disagree, every time i've seen him this year he looks utterly washed.

Gasol of a couple of years ago would be an significant upgrade but from what i've seen this season i don't see it.

Look at Gasol's numbers in December. The Grizzlies started the season really well don't forget. They then had some injuries and thinks started going awry and I think everyone just got fed up.

He will be fantastic in Toronto in my opinion. Think it's a great fit. We'll see soon enough.

Yeah, that's a great point too. They were essentially still running things through him as the main guy in Memphis, which was too much of a demand at this stage of his career. A lot less demand in Toronto, where he will be part of a great rotation of players.

Anyone other than LA Lakers trading for Davis is completely mad, imo, if this guy is going to continue to be represented by Rich Paul/Klutch. It is just not a believable coincidence that Davis decided to partner with Lebron's best friend at the beginning of this season, and requested out in less than five months. I think all of this is pre-ordained and the receptiveness towards a few other teams is him trying to be reasonable to New Orleans by ensuring they get a good return.

People said the same with Kawhi and Paul George, they are saying this because they are desperate. Also the idea that Lebron is just going to punt another year of his career so AD can come when he's 36 isn't realistic IMO.

Teams should and they will call Klutch's bluff, besides Knicks are one of the team AD has said he would sign with permanently as is the Clippers. The only ones who who supposedly he won't resign with who currently have a hoard of picks is Boston.

I've said this before but even if they draft Zion they won't keep him :lol: when you make a trade like the Porzingis one you do it to get a team of stars together. They know that if they trade for AD they likely get KD or/and Kyrie too, if you keep him you get Zion and bums lol because as good as he is no star is joining him first year.

It's pretty obvious that's what they want, because Knicks offered us Porzingis for AD but we turned them down and they got multiple picks for a reason.At this point Knicks fans should see Zion as a gateway to AD, their actions since the Porzingis trade have been pretty transparent and it's obvious what they
want to do.

I'd be pretty f***ing shocked if they don't trade the pick tbh (assuming they get it obviously), you don't basically dump Porzingis for salary and picks unless you're looking to acquire big stars.

I think Lebron and Zion are the same species, tbh. We should be investigating Lebron's whereabouts in January 2000.

Ah, man. Linsanity New York was so much fun.

That man dropped 38 on Kobe in a Knicks win in the Garden, and had the whole town buzzing during that run ... and the Knicks still found a way to screw it up.

Just another reason the Knicks are the worst. Urgh. Although to be fair it was fat Melo and his giant caboose hating on the guy.

Nice pickup for Toronto :thup:

Paul George is outrageous.

Really happy for that dude. Fully over his injury and stuck it out in OKC rather than become LeBron's lackey.

Will be in MVP considerations as OKC are on a heck of a run right now. Wow.

Post by: Mole_Toonfan on Tuesday 12 February 2019, 12:33:32 pm
He deserves to be, honestly i'd pick him right now. As great as Giannis has been i don't feel like he's had a standout performance that matters for a win, it feels a lot like Steph's first MVP where Golden State where blowing people out and he'd sit 4th quarters.

Paul George's performances are more impressive to me, Harden has been amazing honestly and picking him is purely down to how much you really value winning as every other MVP candidate will have more wins.

I'm not really taking wins into account this year. Harden has played with scrubs all year with all the injuries they have had and is a one man offence. Giannis has a lot of wins but they have been fully healthy and he is in the perfect system. Harden is the system.

Shouts to PG though I'd have him second

Currently yes, but i feel like the only ones who want it to happen is the league i wouldn't be surprised if they eventually come to some sort of agreement after the all star break.

Demps was a lame duck GM, he was never really in charge from that standpoint. I think he's gotten a short straw from the stand point everyone sees him as a laughing stock but it isn't really his fault.

There's lots of overreactions from people right now who really don't have a clue but the reality is this has been set in motion for a while now, as it should be btw if he's not going to handle the future of the franchise he shouldn't be here.

In terms of general critique i basically agree with this....

Um ... the young Bulls definitely have something brewing for the future. Fenham mag has to be excited about it.

Absolutely love the Otto Porter Jr. pickup for them. He's fit into the team so nicely.

Lavine, Porter Jr. and Markkanen are like a very budget/bootleg version Jordan, Pippen and Kukoc. And they have a ton of time on their side to improve together. Wendel Carter was good early on too and he'll fit in nicely alongside those guys when he returns.

Need to just find a young point guard, as I'm not sure Dunn is the answer there.

Lebron nearly won a championship with Matthew Dellavedova as his #2. Nobody should ever be allowed to forget that.

All i’ll say is this. This is his 16th year in the NBA IIRC. By that time, MJ had properly retired. This is essentially Lebron’s “Wizards” time, and he’s clearly not all that fussed any more. I’m ok with that.

He dominated the East. I cannot accept that he dominated the NBA.

Dominated the NBA? Even in Miami with all that help they won just two championships.

The man is yet to show that he can play in a system where he doesn't dominate the ball, and be more versatile off the ball. His teams can therefore play only one way. He has no go to offensive move, which is also why in key moments he seems so passive.

Not that big a fan when the conversation starts going to greatest ever or even second best. Nah.

I've never really liked Lebron because of what surrounds him but i really can't deny what he's achieved. :lol: Also there's some semblance of truth to what you say in terms of playing off ball etc, but despite that he'll still go down as the best of his generation and one of the best ever.

To be clear i'm your side when it comes to Jordan being better i just think you're going too far to explain it. :lol:

Even in and around the era he played in ... do I really rate him ahead of prime Duncan, Shaq, Kobe? In actuality I would even take prime Tracy McGrady ahead of him. And people put this guy ahead of Hakeem Olajuwon?! Larry Bird?! No ... I can't accept it.

Man I love T-Mac. My favourite player of all time, but he was never better than Lebron, never in a million years. Only a better scorer. But the rest Lebron is so freaking ahead. Lebron is the best allaround player I've seen. The way he can turn it up on both sides of the floor at any point is ridiculous.

I see a behemoth that cannot shoot, has no post moves, has no go to move on offense and cannot play within a system, who always whimpers that he needs more help.

Great physical specimen and athlete that has great vision and can pass the ball. And that's it.

Of course he does because he's a great athlete, and can drive to the hoop all game and finish, and even then so often he goes passive for no reason and refuses to keep on driving when his team needs him to score.

He starts sitting at the top of the key throwing passes around. Last year in the finals in game 1 he has Steph on him at the end of the game and tosses it to George Hill for goodness sake. Why? Even though he had been scoring inside easily all game.

He's a strange guy. Not a fan at all.

Very similar actually ... yes. And I do not think lowly of either, I just know LeBron isn't the best player everyone claims he is.

Giannis is actually a worse shooter, but Giannis is relentless and will take it inside all game and doesn't go into these weird passive stages. He takes responsibility for his team at all times.

Giannis also doesn't bitch and moan about not having enough help, and he doesn't point fingers at his team mates.

Giannis also doesn't claim to be the best player in the league or the best player ever.

I won't even bother mentioning the defence, because that is a moot point nowadays. LeBron doesn't even bother, so he can concentrate on padding his offensive numbers, so he can claim they are better than Jordan's when he's all done. Fraud.

None of you can retort the points I made about his game so whatever.

In other news the Lakers are shamelessly wheeling out Andre Ingram again to try and create some positive buzz as their pathetic season comes to an end. Can't even offer the poor bloke more than a 10 day contract in what is a washed season. Despicable.

Rumours now leaked that Walton and the coaching staff implored Magic and Pelinka to re-sign both Lopez and Randle.

Letting Lopez walk and join the Bucks was phenomenally stupid. An incredible decision.

Let me stir the pot. I have a few months until the Raptors are a middle of the road East team so I'm going to empty the clip in here.

Ja Morant with only the 8th triple double in March Madness history.

Amazingly Draymond has two of them.

Watched him play one game and I'm sold. His playmaking is quality

Sounds like he got drunk, was a bit aggressive but she still wanted to be in a relationship with him but she wanted him to give her 68k to say sorry.

As more information comes out, it just sounds like extortion and/or blackmail, tbh. Porzinigis's team would have been smart to get ahead of this story in a media sense, tbh, as they reported the extorion attempt months ago. Now millions of people who won't care to follow the rest of the story have seen his name and and a horrible crime linked together in a national news headline, which may have been the point in the first place.

8th seed going down to the wire in the East. Cmon Orlando.

Pretty unlucky last night as they had to play the Raptors in the only game they will try in until the playoffs. Raptors play the Nets next where they will likely rest Kawhi and or Lowry.

Man I'm loving this last month. Has been feeling like playoff basketball again. Every game is so damn important. We're playing some great stuff, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Could've won last night had we not died for couple of minutes when the Raps went on a 25-2 run or something.

Strange seeing it from different viewpoints, we had our full playoff rotation together for one of a handful of times this season we were always going to just step up eventually after feeling you out in the first quarter. I expected us to find a second gear and blow you apart.

Hope you guys make it though, I can't be bothered watching the Heat in the first round. At least Vuc will give the Bucks some problems and Isaacs speed and length could be useful against Giannis.

Think you've got this!

Managed to leave Trae & Boogie on the bench last week at some point like a complete mug

Pinning my hopes on a Kentavious Caldwell-Pope revival

6th seed right now. Another win and a heat loss and we are a go. I’m nervous AF.

I’m just here worrying about the floor spacing with Zion and KD :lol:

:lol: Well Zion will be in Cleveland and KD will be in a sanitarium if he leaves GS for us. So spacing will be just fine.

This playoff race is insane. If the Heat and Hornets win tonight while the Magic and Pistons lose we're going to be going into the last two days of the regular season with 3 PO spots open for 5 teams. Hope the Raptors and Pistons do their thing tonight. Don't see us beting the Celts in Boston.

Man I don't care if we get swept, getting into the playoffs again would be amazing.

I wouldn't be so sure about how we perform today, our entire team was out for Ibaka's charity gala last night and the game is at 12pm ET today. We are locked into the second seed and I'd expect to see a lot of Jeremy Lin and Norman Powell today. Also a potential playoff first round so we won't be wanting to give much away.
