If Giannis were to ask out.

Bucks get Brown, Smart, Theis, Williams, Williams and 6 firsts

The Celtics get Giannis, Hill and Lopez (assuming he resigns and it's a deadline deal)

Celtics new lineup



1.) 04 Jul 2020 17:16:37
The picks are not enough and players are not enough.

2.) 04 Jul 2020 18:16:31
If the Bucks turned down that deal, then they would say no to ANY deal. Five rotation players, including three starters, plus 6 No. 1s? How much more could a team give? Doubt the Celtics would even consider that, even as good as Giannis is.

3.) 04 Jul 2020 22:07:01
Are you purposefully ignoring the fact that you get a major upgrade at center too Supercollider?

And how do they “lose 3 starters” when there’s 3 of their current starters left on the roster?

Also, can we stop talking about starters like that means something. Look around the league at the starters out there. Smart, Theis, and both Williams aren’t in the top 20 of their positions. They’re all nice role players at best.

If Boston was certain that Giannis and Lopez stay, this makes them the best team in the league by a pretty wide margin to me. The point of draft picks is the make your team the best. 6 firsts to be the best is a smart move.

4.) 05 Jul 2020 01:20:37
Collider, that’s a championship caliber team for 3+ years. You get the best player in the league and keep your two best (3 of your top 4) players. You get a top 15 center and a more than qualified replacement for smart. What more could you want out of a trade. Brown and Smart are starting caliber players. Theis is a rotation guy. The Williams are interesting young guys. Brown is really the only high end asset that they’re losing.

The Pistons get Wiggins, Paschal, and the Warriors 2020 1st (Warriors trade exception)

The Warriors get Griffin, Kennard, and Rose


1.) 17 May 2020 15:43:55
I like it. Those 3 would fit great in GS.

2.) 17 May 2020 15:53:02
So its two seperate trades to use the exception?

Wiggins+Pascal for Griffin

Rose+Kennard for 2020 1st (using trade exception)

3.) 18 May 2020 15:04:21
I feel this is bad for GS.



12 May 2020 16:38:01
The Warriors get Horford and Thybulle.

The 6ers get Wiggins and the Warriors 2023 1st top 5 protected.


1.) 12 May 2020 21:24:08
good one!

2.) 12 May 2020 22:06:32
For once I agree with ddrainr.
Speaking of which, ddrainr, any interest in a S&T'd Ibaka?



05 May 2020 03:17:28
The Cavs get Thybulle and Anunoby

The 76ers get Lowry

The Raptors get Horford and the Cavs 2020 1st.


1.) 05 May 2020 13:02:03
Cavs first probably not worth Thybulle and Anunoby.

2.) 05 May 2020 14:47:30
I wouldn’t give up a top 3 pick for two good role players. Cleveland isn’t close to competing, those guys aren’t putting them over the top. They need a star, and the top of the draft is generally where you get them.

3.) 05 May 2020 15:38:47
First, Anunoby is a budding star.
Second, We don't need Horford.
Third, we aren't trading lowry.

4.) 05 May 2020 16:48:17
OG has been in the league for 3 years and is averaging 10 and 5. He’s a great defender and shooter. But he’s not a star. He’s a high end role player. If he’s a top 3 option on a team, you’re probably not a great team.

He’s Ariza. He’s wing version of Ibaka. He’s not Paul George.

5.) 05 May 2020 18:51:29
He will be.

6.) 05 May 2020 19:43:31
If you make trades based on what players "will be", you are going to lose most of those deals.

7.) 05 May 2020 19:56:51
but even so, my other two reasons still stand.

8.) 05 May 2020 21:57:49
Maybe a first or second year guy you trade based on potential. I just don’t see much star potential in OG. Maybe I’m wrong, who knows.

This trade would be the idea that Toronto wants to have a small rebuild around Siakam and a top 3 pick. It’s not a terrible idea. They might not want to do it, but the value isn’t bad. They’d have to be in love with someone in the top 3 for this to make sense.



23 Apr 2020 14:28:55
The Jazz get Wiggins, Paschall, the 2020 warriors 1st, and the 21 Wolves 1st

The Warriors get Gobert and Ingles


1.) 23 Apr 2020 17:15:27
Ingles would be a great fit in GS. I love it for GS. I like it for Utah too, those picks with Mitchell should make a great base for the next 5-10 years.

2.) 23 Apr 2020 18:00:48
utah could compete with their current team for championship now they are built very well all around this sets them back. mitchel and gobert have to resolve their issue and get on track.

3.) 24 Apr 2020 12:08:54
It's good value for Gobert and Wiggins isn't the star, he was predicted to be, but he's undevalued on this site.

I like this trade for both sides.

4.) 24 Apr 2020 15:32:43
Gasupo, it’s funny, but I kind of think the opposite a little of both guys. I don’t like Wiggins. I like Rudy, but I think there’s a lot of things that limit his value. That said, I guess we think the gap is similar.

Your favorite team is in the finals. You have to give the opposing team 1 20 point scorer . It can be anyone in nba history as long as they had a semi healthy season averaging 20 points. Who do you give them and why?


1.) 30 Jun 2020 21:18:16
1988-89 Adrian Dantley.

20.3 PPG, 46% FG%, 0 3pts, 77% FT%, 5 rebounds, 2.4 AST 2.5 TOs 0.6 BLKs.

All the other team is getting is the 20 points. No real rebounding, no defense and more turnovers than assists. Numbers actually worse than Julius Randle last year.

2.) 01 Jul 2020 01:43:53
2002-03 Ricky Davis

He might ruin team's chemistry.

3.) 01 Jul 2020 15:00:45
I only looked the last 20 years, but guys that jump out at me:

Wiggins: historically inefficient, bad defender. If he were 6’2, he’s probably the clear choice.

Monte Ellis: Similarly inefficient, incredibly ball dominant, no outside shot, horrible defense.

Al Jefferson: Only good at posting up, which people don’t do anymore. He’d either be useless on offense, or require a team to totally overhaul their offense. His defense is historically bad, while playing by far the most important position on defense. Also, the teams he played on just simply seemed incapable of winning.

Rudy Gay: Every team that traded him got considerably better after. He’s been a nice role player as he’s aged, but in his prime, he weighed down franchises. Hard to put your finger on what was wrong, but it always felt like it was him.

Honorable mention: Jahlil Okafor. Came within 2 points of being the runaway winner of this. He has the worst individual season defensive rating of the last 50 years I believe, while playing the most important position. He scored, but totally broke the offense doing it. He’s like Al Jefferson, but every negative turned to 11 and none of the (limited) positives.

4.) 04 Jul 2020 10:03:03
I’d give any team I was playing against allen Iverson. He shot42% and 35% from 3. He took so many shots and iso ball he ruined team chemistry. Same with Carmelo.

5.) 04 Jul 2020 17:25:31
Iverson dragged a bad supporting cast to the Finals. He may not be efficient or be able to work with others, but he was simply great.

Now if you said Booker because of that, I might agree. He’s like Iverson, but doesn’t win.

And if you dropped Melo into a Finals team, I’d be scared that unselfish Olympics Melo would make an appearance and make you regret it.

6.) 05 Jul 2020 11:42:43
Yeah if it’s also the 2009 Melo who almost get to the finals (lost to Lakers 4-2) you could be in trouble. The offensive ability of Melo added to a finals team could be scary.



20 Jun 2020 12:02:48
Let's assume you're the gm of a good, but not great team with a combo of good win now guys and some decent prospects (think like the Blazers, but position doesn't matter). You can add one of these guys, which one would you add. Kevin Durant, Donovan Mitchell, Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, or Lebron James. (Let's assume you get them for the rest of their career.


1.) 20 Jun 2020 12:34:18
I would take Lebron or Durant for sure. For the example like the Blazers

Lebron or Durant

Would definitely be one of the favorites to win.

2.) 20 Jun 2020 13:30:38
The first thing I asked myself is this: Would Boston or Utah trade Brown or Mitchell for Lebron or Durant straight up? Definately. I am not going to entertain a discuss about Kyrie.

To me its a toss up between Lebron or Durant because of age/ injury.

3.) 20 Jun 2020 13:34:59
I can’t say Durant because I can’t guarantee he’ll be the same post injury, so (as a Blazer fan) it’s Lebron. Give me 1-3 years of a top 5 all time player over 5+ years of nice all star talent.

Irving is last by a lot. Injuries and he doesn’t seem to make teams better.

4.) 21 Jun 2020 10:02:47
If it's a win now team: LBJ
If the players are under 28y: D Mitchell or J Brown.



16 Apr 2020 23:56:01
Shizzee and Drainer for Gar Forman.

Who says no?


1.) 17 Apr 2020 12:39:47
I would just shoot myself if I had to keep either.

2.) 17 Apr 2020 15:38:56
I'm not sure who made the worst trades, Shizzee or Dolan :-p.



05 Apr 2020 16:05:37
You're able to have 8 players for the rest of their career to build a team with. Which 8 are you picking?


1.) 05 Apr 2020 16:56:53
Zion, Doncic, Giannis, Siakam, Tatum, Jokic, Bam, Leonard

Put together quickly, but I think that’s the perfect balance of the young greats of the league. The oldest is 28. Most are under 25.

2.) 05 Apr 2020 17:00:14
I’d go

Doncic/ Simmons
Ingram/ Brown
Jockic/ Jaren Jackson.

3.) 05 Apr 2020 21:34:43

Morant/ Young
Doncic/ Booker
Kahwi/ Ingram
Giannis/ Siakim/ Zion
Jokic/ Bam.

4.) 06 Apr 2020 02:02:04
Young/ Morant
Kawhi/ Tatum
Davis/ Embiid.

5.) 06 Apr 2020 19:25:39
Young/ VanVleet
Giannis/ Zion
Siakam/ Tatum



02 Jan 2020 15:52:36
Who has more value right now, Kevin Love or Al Horford and would a Horford Love swap make sense for Philly? (The Cavs either planning to trade Horford down the line or find a 3rd team).


1.) 02 Jan 2020 16:54:47
Send Horford to a 3rd team.

2.) 03 Jan 2020 04:48:31
Horford and fillers for d russel. Gsw needs a big just like AL. Sizers need a real pg so Ben can go to pf.

3.) 03 Jan 2020 16:16:25
I think Horford holds more value just because you can rely on him to stay on the court.

I’m not sure it takes Robinson or Barrett, but Portis doesn’t have any value.

It’s not awful, but rather than Rubio, they really need a wing.

Collider, that’s a championship caliber team for 3+ years. You get the best player in the league and keep your two best (3 of your top 4) players. You get a top 15 center and a more than qualified replacement for smart. What more could you want out of a trade. Brown and Smart are starting caliber players. Theis is a rotation guy. The Williams are interesting young guys. Brown is really the only high end asset that they’re losing.

Shiller, he won’t. He isn’t good. Everything analytic says that he’s a net negative player. Heat and Blazers fans both couldn’t wait to get rid of him. He’s a back up center.
