Title: NBA 2020-21 - Ah God Here We Go
Post by: CFlan on Thursday 29 October 2020, 08:35:00 PM
Best to escape the stench of a Lakers title thread. Very interested to see what Morey does in Philly.

Season staring on Dec 22nd.

Also this had the potential to have the most punchable backcourt since Mark Jackson/Reggie Miller.

Yeah I remember watching his first game as he was being billed as the number #1. The two draft express guys on Zach Lowe’s pod were saying that Lamelo was the best player which is wildly different from a few others I listened too.

Wiseman did look like a made for 2020 Dwight Howard in the little bits we saw of him, but it's always hard to gauge when you've got a stud prospect lined up against a bunch of accounting majors from Whodafuckareyou State in November.

I watched LaMelo a couple of times in person for a laugh during the NBL season - was really not convinced.  The entire gameplan was built around him touching the ball as much as he wanted and he was inefficient as hell putting up his stats.  Illawarra also finished dead last, a position they occupied even before he quit halfway through the season.

Yeah, they have an incredible haul of picks. It was a great trade for both parties.

OKC can now build around SGA, and still have some players they can either keep or flip still as there would be interest in the likes of Rubio, Oubre and Adams. They can sign and trade Gallinari too I believe.

Rookie question - is there a really straightforward guide to how trades and salary caps work in the NBA?
Title: Re: NBA 2020-21 - Draft 18th November
Post by: CFlan on Tuesday 17 November 2020, 11:23:12 AM
Haven’t a clue myself  :lol:

Basically you need the salary going out in the trade to match the salary coming in. The cap stops you signing free agents that would push your salary above it but doesn’t really affect your trades. Loads of teams are over the salary cap and they just pay a luxury tax as a consequence.

This Harden to the Nets talk is so crazy to me.

No chance a Harden, Kyrie and Durant trio works, surely?!

Harden and Kyrie don't defend for starters and there's only one ball to go around for goodness sake.

Don't like the move.

Blazers with a really nice pickup in Covington. Love that move for them. Sent Ariza and 2 first rounders over to Houston.

Jordan wants Westbrook at the Hornets. Think that would be a decent move. They're a young, scrappy team that had a decent season last year. Westbrook can be the main man there and have a decent young supporting cast. Think that's the best he can hope for going forward. He doesn't gel well with other top players IMO. A bit like Iverson back in the day, just surround him with complementary, hard nosed defensive minded players that can hit some shots.

It seems like its the NFL that only actually has a hard salary cap, all the others seem to be able to just pay what the want really.

Aye there’s plenty of ways to get around it. Like you can go over the cap if you’re resigning your own player so you’ll see teams waiting to officially sign players after they’ve agreed terms on the contracts.

Think Clippers panicked after Harrell switched to the Lakers. Terrible deal to give Morris that.

John Wall has asked out of Washington. He's looked good and healthy in workouts coming off the injury, and seems to have re-worked his jumper.

Would you take him at the Knicks? Or Westbrook?

Title: Re: NBA 2020-21 - Draft tonight.
Post by: CFlan on Saturday 21 November 2020, 10:17:52 AM
Wall absolutely no way. Maybe Russ, although if RJ is who we think he can be then Russ may hamper that progress but I’d enjoy watching him for at least half a season before I went crazy. Think we should keep our cap free and try do what OKC are doing and take on some bad contracts in exchange for picks.

So apparently Danny Ainge messed up.

Hayward wanted to go to Indy and has already moved his family back there and everything.

Indy offered Turner and McDermott in a sign and trade, and Ainge was insisting on Turner and TJ Warren or Oladipo.

Jordan swooped in during the stalemate and essentially offered Hayward a deal he couldn't really refuse.

Really bad for Boston, as I think Turner would have been a really interesting piece to add for them. Now they're left with nothing.

It's s*** that we got nothing for him but there's no way to know we weren't close to a deal with Indiana before Charlotte came in for him.

4/120 is ridiculous for Hayward at 30 and after the injuries he's had btw

Think Adams is finished Moley, not sure what the thinking was there.

I wouldn't say he's finished - his stats last year are in line with the rest of his career when you adjust for the less minutes.

But that is and always was problem - he was a high floor, low ceiling guy.  If you need him get you 8 boards, he will give you 10 boards, if you need him to dominate the glass and get you 20, he will get you 10.  Just doesn't have the drive like his sister does.

Yeah, he's not perfect, but he could have been had and Thompson can't be.

Turner is still really young, and working within Brad Stephen's system I could easily see him doing better and improving going forward.

*Never mind! Just realised that Thompson was a free agent and they have indeed signed him. That's a great deal for them, as he's much better defensively, particularly when switching onto guards. Nice move.

Wonder if they could have had both Thompson and then Turner through the sign and trade. That would have been amazing.

His stats are decent enough at around 13 and 10 the seasons he plays at least 30 mins.

But with him it's not really about stats. He brings a ton of toughness and is a really good defender. He also sets the best picks in the league by far. The guy just does all the important things that add a lot of value, and is a very unselfish player and so a great character addition too.

Amazing that he's only just 27 years old too. Really liked the move, personally.

Clippers get Serge Ibaka! Big bounce back after losing Harrell to the Lakers.

Love this signing, and think he's a better fit than Harrell for them, as he's more versatile defensively and is a far superior shooter from the free throw line and three.

Ibaka, Morris, Kawhi and George in the same 5 is very handy defensively. Good stuff.

Man, this coming season is going to be interesting.

Wow. Read somewhere that Beal was the one pushing for the deal behind the scenes, and so if that's indeed the case then keeping him happy this way is a good move. Russ also joins up with his previous coach who will know him well, so that will be good.

Ultimately I think it makes Washington better, as Russ is far more durable. Solid move all things considered IMO. Really like the Rookie from Israel that the Wizards drafted too. Rui and Bryant should continue to improve also. Managed to keep Bertans as well.

Think Washington are in good shape and should be competitive in the East for sure.

Washington Wizards might have hit a home run with Deni Avdija. Really liked the look of him last night. He is huge and very skilled with the ball. Showed a lot yesterday. Ball handling, running the offense, hit shots, posted up and passed it very confidently.

Rui Hachimura also looked really good too and particularly much improved and comfortable shooting the three. He is very powerful physically. Washington are in very very good shape. They will make noise in the East this season.

Also loving Tyrese Haliburton for the Kings. Looks a classic high IQ point guard. My favourite type of player.

People are gonna think I'm overreacting but Clippers on paper should be better than last year.

Ibaka is actually going to defend the rim, Batum should be better than any non PG, Kawhi wing they had and Kennard is better than Shamet.

Still don't have a point guard but their roster makes so much more sense on paper than it did a year ago.

People are gonna think I'm overreacting but Clippers on paper should be better than last year.

Ibaka is actually going to defend the rim, Batum should be better than any non PG, Kawhi wing they had and Kennard is better than Shamet.

Still don't have a point guard but their roster makes so much more sense on paper than it did a year ago.

They looked good and actually seemed to be running some interesting sets.

Ty Lue had been talking about using some of the Triangle offense to put Kawhi in those post setups Jordan and Kobe excelled in, and I thought it looked really good.

Batum was a good addition just for his size and agility. Looked effective against both LeBron and AD defensively. Tend to forget how big he is. Also handles the ball so well and passes it well too, finished with 6 assists.

Eldfrid Payton is a disgraceful excuse of an basketball player.

You guys really should have picked up a veteran guard that can shoot. He's so basic offensively.

RJ has looked really good and has definitely improved which is a great sign. You guys looked good early on, just need to get Quickley in there pronto.

Giannis is cringeworthy a lot of the times. This man has not developed enough of an offensive skillset.

He has at least 4 offensive fouls this game barrelling into the lane like a bull in a china shop, trying to euro step every time. Painful to watch.

You're right of course, but they look absolutely inept right now. Will be interesting to see how much they improve with Green back, but I honestly wrote this season off as soon as Klay went down with the Achilles.

It's been interesting. Looking at your team it's actually got some decent depth to it.

McGee and Nance backing up Love and Drummond is not bad at all. Also have Cedi coming of the bench with Exum, and eventually Delladova too.

Just remembered your other young guy from last year hasn't even featured yet, Porter Jr., and although he seems to be a bit of a nutter, he can play and had a very respectable rookie year I thought.

We need to decide what our goals are.

Do we want to make the playoffs? Then we need to shorten the rotation.

Do we want to develop the kids? Then actually play them and live with the results.

Last night illustrated what the issues are, we have no bench because of the Jrue trade and also because of the Jrue trade we only have one guy who can create off the dribble.

We were up 1 when the starters left and when they came back we were down 13 lol.

Kira Lewis and NAW have the potential to be those guys but if we want to make the playoffs obviously they need to develop faster than probably it's realistic to expect.

Switch out Bledsoe for Hart in the starting lineup and you'd be so much better.

Bledsoe can then take on more responsibility running the offense for the second unit and surround him with shooters in Redick and Melinelli as well as a great lob man in Hayes.

Bledsoe at the moment seems to be getting in the way in the starting lineup. He can't shoot and he doesn't have the ball enough to drive and kick. He is playing badly and is negatively affecting Lonzo as well, as they are both trying to do the same things without having enough of the ball to do so. It's weird.

Genuinely cannot believe how much he is playing. Thought the trade of Jrue was really about getting picks and he was just thrown in to make it work, and he would be moved on.

Yeah but there were misgivings about pretty much all of the rookies this year, including the top 3 picks.

It's almost like because of a pandemic people had limited time to scout/watch prospects leading to a somewhat questionable drafting process.

Not really though. They start talking about the next class right after the previous draft.

From middle of 2019 they were already saying this draft didn't really project to have any stand out talents. Looking like that was wrong.

The 2021 draft on the other hand has been hyped up from even early 2020 with guys like Cade Cunningham and Jalen Green being hyped for ages now.

I find it amazing how quickly people write Steph off, as if he isn't a once in a generation player who changed the whole face of the game.

Still don't expect too much from this season. We've shown a bit of promise in the last two games, but I'd be pretty happy with a playoff berth, given how f***ing crazy the West is. With Klay back next year however...

I’ve followed basketball since 2015 when I had a bout of insomnia and I followed the warriors fairly closely as I absolutely loved Steph and Klay’s game. I will never call myself a fan of the warriors as I’d be jumping on the bandwagon but I love to see Steph doing well as it’s just pure joy seeing him sink 3s. I have a slight soft spot for the Sacramento Kings too as they’re pretty rubbish, big fan of De’Aaron Fox

Really liked the way you started the season. Sill haven't seen Sexton, Garland, Okoro, Love and Drummond out there as a starting 5 and all healthy.

Really think they could have been a sneaky underdog to make the playoffs in the East.

I guess the good thing is you have a lot of talented bigs that you could potentially flip now for someone decent, so should be interesting to see what you guys do.

If Harden is willing to make the same adjustments as Durant did in GSW, they will be lethal together.  KD is just as deadly off the ball and works well when he shares the ball handling load.

Irving will be the issue long term, they'll play nice this year for a run at the finals but surely Kyrie is shipped out by the 2021/22 trade deadline.

Durant is the most enjoyable player to watch IMO, makes scoring look effortless. Kyrie would likely hurt his own trade value by refusing to play for about 28 of the teams. They’re going to run with the team as is and Nash will likely jump off the Brooklyn Bridge before its all over.

Nice. Lots of fun young talent coming through at the minute. Great time to get into the league :thup:

KD is the ultimate cheat code. I hate that his rep took such a hit because he chose to join the Warriors a few years ago, because I don't think he gets the respect he deserves on the whole. He is the most skilful player in the NBA IMO, and at 7 foot tall it really is unfair.

Kyrie has made his reputation so toxic now that despite his talent, no one would trade for him. Guy has gone off the deep end. In hindsight I think Brooklyn just used him to get KD and now they've added Harden they will let him go as soon as they can figure out how, over the next few seasons.

Our offence since we started using Zion as a point forward has been absolutely ridiculous.

Coincidentally Zion himself has been playing like an absolute monster in that timespan.

If we could actually figure out how to defend we would actually be a good team lol, maybe one day.

Happy Zion is finally getting a chance to play this way. He is fantastic with the ball in his hands.

Duke would have won a chip if they had used him more than they used RJ Barrett on the ball at the time.

Also catching the highlights of Nets vs Suns, the shotmaking in the 4th is absolutely ludicrous.

Harden carrying Nets to a win without Kyrie and KD over a very good team seems notable.

People crying over Zion making the all star game is telling me these people aren't actually watching him play.

The guy is putting up 25/7/3 on 62/35/71 splits with a 62.3 eFG% and the 6th highest PER in the league.

If team record ever actually mattered when it came to all star then Trae Young wouldn't have made it as a starter last year.

It's never mattered despite how people cry about it every year for some reason.

You dipshits did everything in your power to lose, despite the Warriors trying to get you across the finish line in the 4th.

The schedule released today is a bit nuts, some teams have more than 10 back to backs.

Nobody, absolutely nobody scores the ball as easily as Zion does. This is bloody ridiculous.

Only person who can guard him is the refs tbh. It's Shaq like in the sense he has to play through a ridiculously amount of contact because he's stronger than everyone else.

You guys are definitely making the playoffs and you might end up embarrassing someone big time.

I’m loving watching the youth play hard and the addition of Rose, Gibson and Noel has been nice. Still think Randle is fools gold but I’m enjoying it while it lasts.

Leon Rose has certainly done more good than bad. It’s unnerving, I need Dolan to go on Francesca or something :lol:
