MIN- J.Butler

CLE- R.Hood, J.Clarkson & 1st round pick


1.) 06 Oct 2018 12:58:34
That just doesn’t seem any where close.

2.) 06 Oct 2018 16:49:50
I don’t think it’s far off if you add Nance or Osman. By itself I would have to say the heat rumored trade is better and so are the clippers but if you add Nance or Osman then at least it could be a considered package to look at.

3.) 06 Oct 2018 17:02:41
I see Clarkson as having slightly negative value, Hood has minimal value as seen by the lack of interest in free agency, and the 1st would be 3 years from now.

Throwing Nance or Osman in would possibly make it atleast a conversation, but I feel like Sexton or Love would have to be the center piece to any Cavs trade for Butler and that just doesn’t seem worth it for a probable 30 year old rental.

4.) 06 Oct 2018 17:10:12
If the pic is unprotected, it could be a good trade.

5.) 06 Oct 2018 17:11:11
And that’s why the Cavs shouldn’t give up Sexton or Love for Butler, he won’t stay at season’s end. Cavs won’t compete with Butler this year anyway, so if it’s not Hood, Clarkson, a 1st and potentially Osman, which I don’t know whether the Wolves accept anyway, the Cavs should also shy away.

6.) 06 Oct 2018 17:14:15
It's absolutely not possible without love, sexton or both and pick.

7.) 06 Oct 2018 18:51:54
Nobody wants to go to cleveland.

8.) 06 Oct 2018 23:06:37
Shizzee I don’t get the hatred for Cleveland from you. Are you Joakim Noah?

9.) 07 Oct 2018 14:00:54
Are you Joakim Noah? That’s the best come back? My gosh that’s awful.

10.) 07 Oct 2018 14:43:23
Lmao i'm Noah.



22 Aug 2018 09:58:49

UTA: Jimmy Butler
MIN: Jae Crowder, Alec Burks & 1st round pick 2019 + swap 2021 1st round pick & 2nd rd pick 2020




1.) 22 Aug 2018 11:52:43
Unless butler resigns Utah gets screwed.

2.) 22 Aug 2018 19:34:27
Great deal for Utah, even if only for one season. Minnesota says NO.



20 Aug 2018 12:22:13

PHX: Sexton,Wiggins
CLE: Jones,Knight,Warren,Suns 1st,Wolves 1st
MIN: Love,Korver,Ariza,Cavs 2nd





1.) 20 Aug 2018 12:49:32
Honestly I don't see any team matching 30 mil value in trade for love, and wouldn't be throwing draft picks to get him even spread out amongst a third team.

2.) 20 Aug 2018 13:19:26
Love for wiggens talent wise. But age is huge factor.

3.) 20 Aug 2018 18:36:00
Love is far more valuable than wiggins. Wiggins is a complete negative full of empty points. He brings nothing else to the game.

Love is a great teammate, spreads the floor, beast on the rims and at least tries on defense

Minnesota is stuck with wiggins and that horrendous contract.

4.) 21 Aug 2018 04:48:28
Don’t see wiggins as being a complete negative at all.
More of just that mind set after a player gets paid or overpaid for that matter .
Not many players average over 20 ppg in their first 3 seasons, still very young and can work ok Defense .
Won’t be seeing any dpoy coming his way but he can improve.

He got moved down the food chain and it’s hard for some players to adapt (see Melo) . But as a 3rd option he averaged almost 18ppg-4-2. Can’t be all garbage points if they made the playoffs on the western conference.

Offensively he has the tools to be the #1 option on that team and still has a high ceiling at 23 years old

Butler at his age wasn’t even a starter, averaged 8 points a game.

5.) 21 Aug 2018 13:26:55
Love is 30 and has not played the same since coming out with his mental illness. You love the great white hope. Lmao.

6.) 21 Aug 2018 15:13:29
Shizzee, he had his best season with the Cavs last year. What are you talking about?

7.) 21 Aug 2018 17:28:44
That downfall to just producing 17 and 10 and being an all star last year has been horrible hasn't it shizzee? That mental illness (that he's dealt with his entire career) has really hurt him. . .

I really don't understand your hatred for him. He's a fantastic second or third option. He's selfless, hard worker, does the little things, and defers to the main star. Everything you want out of a second or third star.

8.) 23 Aug 2018 15:25:01
How does anyone not see Wiggins as a complete negative at this point? Dude is making 30 mill a year for the next 5 years. His eFg is about 47%, given his volume shooting, this is horrific. He brings down the offense with these numbers, especially given he is literally one of the worst jumpshooters in the league. Also, his defense is horrific. To say, well, he could get better. Sure he could, if he cared. But typically people care in order to earn the big contract. You don't give a big contract and then expect him to try.

No team will want Wiggins. He isn't an asset, in any way.



04 Aug 2018 04:13:47

DAL: B.Griffin + S.Johnson

reunites Griffin & Jordan


DET: H.Barnes + D.Powell



1.) 04 Aug 2018 04:38:04
If butler is headed to Dallas then hell yes Dallas should do this.

smith jr.

Pretty good team with no injuries!

2.) 04 Aug 2018 05:50:44
I highly doubt detroit does this.



03 Aug 2018 09:28:42

MIN: D'Angelo Russell, Demarre Carroll (exp), Allen Crabbe & 2nd round picks


BKN: Jimmy Butler & Jeff Teague



1.) 03 Aug 2018 15:05:00
Nowhere near enough for Butler/ Teague.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 00:56:05
Wow this sites getting worse! I didn’t know you could out do shizzee! I’m ya have a brain please use it.

What does it take to beat a healthy Warriors next season? Who has the chance? What possible moves to make for them?

For Celtics- i believe they are the top contender against warriors something they can do to have a better chance?
A healthy Irving and Hayward obviously is needed. I believe that Anthony Davis will not be available via trade but Kawhi and Jimmy Butler could be? Send out a package involving Brown, Rozier and some picks to add another superstar

For Rockets- they need their center back, they lose one of their best defenders so what would they need to stay in that Warriors level?

For Lakers- yes as of now, they are far from being a contender but wherever LeBron goes will find ways to be one of the top specially beating GS, what they need to do? It's obvious they are chasing Kawhi but it would not be enough because they might lose a ton of depth and their future could be in trouble. Will Capela help? Will a trade for Butler help? What help does Lebron need?

For Sixers- they are too young but have a chance if they add a superstar or two, again Kawhi or Jimmy


1.) 04 Jul 2018 07:07:07
I say Celtics are the best shot. But they should keep their depth. I think it’d be one of their best assets against the warriors.

2.) 04 Jul 2018 20:04:47
Leonard is unlikely to go to celts for one season. Ainge wouldn't trade brown for one season.

3.) 06 Jul 2018 03:52:06
Say Houston and with healthy paul they would of won. DMC not going to be same and help them get more Tech's.

4.) 06 Jul 2018 07:26:13
Dmc out half the season maybe and he isn't much of a rim protector or perimeter defender. Jordan bell is probably going to play big minutes. I think bell was why mcgee was let go. Dmc can help if gsw plays his style.



03 Jul 2018 04:10:57
There is a team that can go head to head with the Warriors right now and that's Oklahoma City Lakers

G Westbrook/Rondo/Ball
G George/KCP/Roberson
F Ingram/Anthony/Stephenson
F James/Kuzma
C Adams/Noel/McGee




18 Jun 2018 12:08:34
If you could build a realistic team to take down the Warriors without LBJ, what would be yours? mine is

PG: Irving-Beverley
SG: Mitchell-L.Williams
SF: Leonard-J.Brown
PF: Morris-Booker
CE: Davis-D.Dedmon


1.) 18 Jun 2018 13:31:14
PG: Holiday/ Rozier
SG: Oladipo/ L Williams
SF:Ariza/ Bullock
PF: Porzingis/ Booker
C:M Turner/ Sabonis.

2.) 18 Jun 2018 16:13:24
Simmons/ McConnell
George/ Reddick
Covington/ TLC
Leonard/ Illyasova
Embiid/ Holmes

No one can guard Embiid on the Warriors, that team would have an elite offense, and the defensive of that starting lineup would be insane.

3.) 18 Jun 2018 16:46:59
Simmons elite offense? He can't shoot. Maybe someday but that is the main reason sixers lost in the second round. George and Leonard wouldn't be enough firepower either. Defensively a great line up. Draymond Green is good enough to hold embid under 20 pts consistently in a series. Swap out simmons and Covington for lbj, and Irving or Chris paul and it looks competitive.

4.) 18 Jun 2018 17:01:35
Simmons just averaged 16 and 8 as a rookie. He's an elite finisher, passer and gets wherever he wants on the court. He's a great offensive player. Kawhi, George, and Embiid are all great scorers. As for Green, he can't handle Embiid. The only place Green struggles on D is against guys like Embiid. He can't handle their size.

5.) 18 Jun 2018 17:29:27
i was referring to playoffs not the season. Simmons poor shooting was highlighted, he ran the wrong plays on multiple occasions, Reddick barked at him for it and bailed him out with superb shooting a few times, simmons knocked embid down on another wrong play miscommunication. Watch the celts series. He has talent but he isn't gsw defeating for a couple seasons yet. blazers were 3rd in the west, 6th in defense and got swept while allowing 108+ in that series. Season #'s offer little insight. Watch Green play. There will be no need for Green on Saric. He will focus on embid. Durant will play Saric, and is also capable of defending embid decently. Then can throw McGee, bell and looney at him. Need simmons shooting 3 ball against a gsw team. If cavs getting swept didn't highlight the massive separation between gsw and the rest of the league I don't know what will.

6.) 18 Jun 2018 18:44:21
The Cavs were swept because they had little scoring outside of Lebron and Love and their defense was horrible.

Portlands defense was smoke and mirrors. They have 2 guards that they need to hide and Nurkic wasn't athletic enough to deal with Davis. It was never going to be a good playoff defense. The defense Philly could put together would be like a perfected version of what the Rockets were doing and they gave the Warriors fits.

As for Simmons, you were watching him in his first playoffs and he was actually pretty good. They played a close series against a good team. He's going to be better next year and you're giving him 2 players that can carry an offense. He won't have to be a scorer. He can be a distributor.

In this scenario, Saric is gone and it doesn't matter if he focuses on Embiid. He can't do much with him. Plus, Embiid is going to hold his attention letting the perimeter players attack without having to deal with Green being able to help as much. It's going to be hard to even play McGee significant minutes in a playoff series where Philly is going small. I'm not saying that team definetly beats the Warriors, but they would need to play at the top of their ability and get hot to win a series with them.

7.) 18 Jun 2018 19:30:29
5 games to 1 was a close series? Your super team has Leonard playing out of position, and might as well be the sixers as is. How do you know simmons will shoot the 3 next season? I am not sold on Leonard or George carrying anything. Neither has done it yet or had to. Draymond green can't defend embid well or better yet the gsw will have no answer for him? I am not following your ideas's or accumen on basketball strategy. It just looks like your throwing out ridiculous reasons to make a case. Sometimes we are wrong and those with character admit it.

8.) 18 Jun 2018 20:29:17
Leonard has been a finals MVP, top 3 in MVP voting, and was the best player on a championship team. How has he not proven it? George has been the best player on teams that reached the conference finals.

I never said that Simmons would beable to shoot the 3 next year, but he's going to be surrounded by shooters and he'll be the 3rd or 4th best player on that team.

It was a close series. 3 of Boston's wins were by 5 or less points. It wasn't like they were destroying Philly.

Who cares what position you're listing Kawhi at. All 4 of those guys can guard 1 through 4 pretty easily. Teams are going to struggle much more trying to guard Those perimeter players with a traditional big than Philly will trying to handle a big with their line up. Look at the better teams in the playoffs. Boston, Cleveland (or wherever Lebron goes), Houston, and GS all will be playing predominantly small ball 4s.

As for my logic about the Warriors rotation, go look back at the Houston series. How much did McGee play?

AS for Draymond, look at what Aldridge and Davis did against him. They both had great individual series with him being their primary defender. He struggles with bigger post players. He to small to affect them. He's giving up 6 inches and 70 pounds to a guy like Embiid.

9.) 18 Jun 2018 21:03:24
Rozier 6th man

Heyward and boston 1st for Leonard. I understand they just signed him but it's for the better player.

Trade horford and tatum plus sac pick for Davis.

George opts in and they get smart bird rights, Morris and a first for George.

10.) 18 Jun 2018 21:38:20
@ rkenne16 Gsw isn't good now because cavs have this problem or that, yet the cavs beat the team that beat the team that 8 of your 10 super team players are from? Get out of here dude you make zero sense.

11.) 18 Jun 2018 23:00:18
When did I say GS isn't good? They're amazing.



09 May 2018 05:55:17
Will Durant make a comeback in OKC? What would it take for the Thunder to have him back?


1.) 09 May 2018 10:20:39
Trade Westbrook for a great passing pointguard.

2.) 10 May 2018 01:56:06
I agree with Gauspo's comment in that Westbrook is not a "great passing point guard. " His stats are inflated because of his high usage rate. He doesn't actually create great opportunities for his teammates. I just find the comment ironic because Westbrook led the league in assists.

3.) 10 May 2018 16:35:31
Thunder will never stop paying for harden mistake unless they tear it down to the ground.



08 May 2018 02:33:07
LA CLIPPERS dream off season

Jordan opts out

talk to CHI for Gallinari deal


CHI- Gallinari + 13th pick
LAC- 2nd rd pick (protected)

waive Marjanovic


TOR- Harris + Rivers (exp) + 12th pick + future 1st rd pick + 2nd rd pick

(get hometown boy)

sign P.George max 1+1 (hometown kid)
sign Ilyasova

resign Jordan now

PG- Beverley-Teodosic
SG- Derozan-Williams
SF- George-Thornwell-Dekker
PF- Ilyasova-Johnson
CE- Jordan-Harrell


1.) 08 May 2018 04:24:19
I wouldn't give that much up for Derozan.

2.) 08 May 2018 05:51:54
rkenne, i was about to give Bradley (s&t) plus those picks to get Derozan but i think they wouldn't have enough money if Harris stays in the line up? What do you think?

3.) 08 May 2018 13:34:46
Why not go Gallonari, Beverly the 12 and 13.
