Fultz has the yips, right? and it seems Philly is tired of covering for it with an injury story. They landed butler and moved on. Harsh!

Yeah, I’m finally on board with agreeing that he’s probably done after today’s news.

It's really sad when you look at the excuses he's been giving the public for the last year. For a young guy, this isn't good. I am starting to believe the motorcycle story after I saw a vid of him riding a wheelie on a four-wheeler standing up. I've torn my shoulder snowboarding, had to have MLB pitcher surgery to fix it.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2018 15:41:31
I don’t think anyone really knows how much is mental and how much is physical. Best case scenario, it’s something physical and it can be fixed. Honestly, it’s probably both and that’s worse case scenario. Can you fix either?

I can see his college and high school silky smooth, high release jump shot. What the hand juggling, hitch, double pump, herky-jerky stuff is?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2018 16:08:23
Yeah, it was definitely at least a physical thing to start. If it's both now, that's tough.

In all fairness, he's a 20 year old that's struggling through his first injury (that won't go away), the stress of being a #1 pick, and probably a million other things. He's likely not getting great advise from team/ agent/ others. I'm surprised this doesn't happen more. I feel bad for him.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Nov 2018 17:09:18
100% Bmiller66. He has a lot of years to figure it out. Hope he does. Shame if it was another Jay-Will type story. Never played one NBA game pre-injury. Makes the Sixers scouts and GM look 3 times as bad never seeing him full strength.

Agree0 Disagree1

KD isn’t mvp over curry.

Agree3 Disagree2

20 Nov 2018 21:42:30
Defensive player of the year has got to be Kawhi the guy has more steals than fouls and he is marking the best players.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Nov 2018 23:14:48
MIP should be Javale McGee. His season has been shocking.

Stotts for COY without a doubt to me. Most thought that team would fire him and implode.

MVP: Giannis, Lillard, Kawhi

ROY: Doncic, Ayton

DPOY: Kawhi, Nurkic (How does AD or Gobert get it when they have a bottom 10 defense? )

Agree4 Disagree0

21 Nov 2018 00:18:23
I agree with NBA16. Curry has proven to be the most important player on that team this year with the games he has played and missed. Maybe the most underrated star in my life time. The fact that he’s passed over when people talk about the best player in the league is crazy.

Agree3 Disagree1

21 Nov 2018 05:37:56
James mvp
Mcgee mip
Doncic roy
Klaw dpoy
Budd coy.

Agree0 Disagree4

21 Nov 2018 13:21:31
Curry has missed games. I can't include him next to Giannis. It isn't fair i'm my opinion. I'd take Durant any day of the week over curry.

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Nov 2018 14:03:41
2 things II. first, McGee hasn't improved. He is averaging the same efficiency he always has for his career. he's just actually getting the minutes now. Check out his per 36, its strikingly similar, minus a low in rebounding.

Second, haven't really heard you touting Ball's beautiful and amazing new shot lately. Curious as to why. Is he not still shooting like 50%, and 45% from 3?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2018 14:34:15
I actually agree with hamburger that McGee hasn't improved, he's just playing more minutes.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2018 15:37:29
Actually playing more minutes and producing more when giving the chance is improving. He could been playing more minutes and doing worse. But he averaging what compared to last year. That's an amazing improvement. If mcgee was on the raptors I'd say the same thing.
Ball been impressive and at the same time he doing horrible. With rondo out time will tell about ball.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Nov 2018 15:40:09
McGee was almost out of the league a couple years ago. Getting the minutes he's gotten and playing the way he has is a huge improvement. He played 60 games in a 4 year span at one point. Maintaining efficiency while leaving GS (and their 4 all stars he played next to) and playing more minutes is a huge accomplishment.

I wouldn't include Curry in MVP voting either because of the missed games. But Durant definitely doesn't deserve to be in the running at this point. They're 5-5 in their last 10 without Curry. Not exactly elite.

On that note, Lebron also isn't close to MVP because his team is floating around .500.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2018 16:11:09
I don't feel about MVP and wins like most fans do. I think Durant was snubbed last season and the season before. Harden isn't a 2-way player and neither is James. Although Harden is up there in steals this season. Giannis is winning and he is dominant, 2 ways. Curry is good, one of the best PG's in the league. Not being able to nail down the finals MVP when everyone one was trying to give it to him, raised durants value to that team in my eyes.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2018 17:50:37
Eh, the Finals are a few games, they don't sway me nearly as much. I think Curry's lack of caring about the Finals MVP highlights his greatness. I also think he was 100% screwed out of the one that went to Iggy. Curry is the foundation of that team, he's the reason they work like they do. He singularly increases the area that a defense has to defend.

Wins aren't everything, but wins compared to wins without is an enormous thing for me. Lebron has increased the Lakers from .440 to .560. Not an huge jump in win percent. If they end up top 4 in the west, he's absolutely deserving. If they had been the worst team in the NBA last year, being here would be impressive.

Even more for Durant. GS was 10-1 when Curry went down. They're 2-5 since then. That means that Curry contributes to winning infinitely more than Durant does in my eyes. That said, neither likely has a chance at a regular season MVP because they play with each other.

Seattle gets the Magic

Orlando gets the Space Needle

Who says no?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Nov 2018 07:52:52
Living in both those cities back in the 80's and 90s I'd have to say Seattle hangs up abruptly.

Bucks send Eric Bledsoe Tony Snell 2020 first round pick (Top 10 protected)

Wizards send John Wall Kelly Oubre Jr

Salary Match

Agree1 Disagree2

19 Nov 2018 23:43:47
Bucks decline.

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Nov 2018 00:40:55
Maybe without the first.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Nov 2018 02:15:40
John Wall better then Eric Bledsoe why Buck going to Declined that deal?

Agree1 Disagree2

20 Nov 2018 02:51:29
37.5 mil + a trade kicker of 15% is my guess.

Agree2 Disagree1

20 Nov 2018 09:00:40
Wall would be great for the Bucks, but i agree it's to expensive.

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Nov 2018 12:14:16
Wall isn't that much better then Bledsoe and costs way too much.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Nov 2018 16:29:17
I'd prefer Bledsoe. He's a better shooter and defender.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Nov 2018 01:45:08
Wall has zero value let alone 2 positive assets.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 21:30:38
How exactly do trade exceptions work?

I know how you get them but i don't know exactly when and how you can use them. Can you pair it with a player or multiple players? Say u have a 10 mil exception and you are trading 2 players each with 5 mil salaries. Can you throw in the exception so u can get a player with a 20 mil contract in return? Or can u only use it with 1 player or no players just picks? How exactly does it work?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Nov 2018 00:30:41
1 for 1. You can treat it like a player. I don't think you can receive multiple players in return, but you could trade multiple out to receive one in return. The exception being treated like a player. Can also trade exception alone to provide salary relief for another team.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Nov 2018 07:08:16
Can trade for 1 player without sending out matching salary as long as the players salary fit's within that trade exception + 1000k.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Nov 2018 10:12:57
If used and incoming salary is less, that exception has been used, there is no remaining balance.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Nov 2018 18:13:46
typo. 100k.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 13:04:20
Melo doesn't fit with D'Antoni,Im wondering why they don't release him?? And which teams are interested with Melo?? Should he go to his other 2 buddies teams Heat or Lakers?? or sign with playoff contender?? or go back to NY or Denver??

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 13:57:53
Nba changed rules. Melo should retire. It's hard to see a team willing to give up points that easy, knowingly.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Nov 2018 15:20:19
GMaster -- You make it sound like Anthony will have a choice.
He will play for any team stupid enough to sign him.

Agree3 Disagree0

21 Nov 2018 05:40:56
He should sign with the cavs and try to recontruct his game.

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Nov 2018 03:45:58
This is mostly for Thunder fans but if you follow the Thunder at all or want to comment you can.

Do yall think Ferguson or Diallo should be starting right now?

I think Diallo. He just started againt the Suns and even though he only scored 1 point he was 0-1 and 1-2 from the free throw line he still had a +7 for his +-. He has had more hustle than Ferguson, so far he really helped on the offensive glass and with 50/ 50 balls. I really lime watching Diallo and think he could be something special what do yall think?

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 04:49:39
I say try it again with Diallo starting, but with Ferguson off the bench. We didn’t get to see Ferguson offf the bench because he was out that game.

But in general, I’d like to see OKC trade Roberson. Their defense is doing good without him. They should target a 2 way player in a trade.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 16:46:12
Ferguson have played good defense this year and I believe he deserves to have the spot until Roberson comes back.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 19:38:50
Not an OKC fan but I would allow diallo, ferguson, Roberson (who will need time) to be a fluid situation based on matchup? Ferguson appears to have that 1 year polish on defense that diallo is missing. Diallo could catch on soon though, in that case I would start Diallo and move on from Ferguson at the end of the season unless a trade pops up. Diallo is a much better offensive threat.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Nov 2018 22:38:29
Wow Memphis have surprised me this year just wonder if they can keep going I had them and suns for bottom 2 sides

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 00:52:29
Rad- why? They are healthy and have a top pick added. I expect 5-8th seed like most years and second round exit.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 01:08:56
I had them fringe playoff if they were going to play grind 'em out defensive style. Jackson is a great Randolph alternative.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 02:00:37
Conley is good, Gasol is back to good, and Jackson and Anderson were good additions. I figured they would be atleast decent.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 03:58:40
Yeah but can Connelly stay healthy I couldn’t believe they paid him and parsons that money they get injured way too much for my liking but good luck to them.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 13:08:09
I wish they could get Randolph back. And retire after the season.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 23:09:25
Read comely had 2 injured seasons. He is face of the team. I would have been more surprised if they didn't pay him. Look who got big money. Wall, beal, aaron Gordon, hell parker got 20,lavine, cp3 guys that honestly don't play 2 was or lead half as good as mike.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Nov 2018 00:19:31
Looks like Noah is taking that randolph slot.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Nov 2018 06:19:26
Yes all about the timing I guess.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Nov 2018 22:07:05
2019 Free Agency Off-Season

Should Cavs get rid of Larry Drew & Hire Mark Jackson or Keep Larry Drew for One More Year?

Should Cavs Draft Zion Williamson or RJ Barrett?

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Nov 2018 00:52:50
I think Jackson is done.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 01:09:46
Jackson put the warriors together, he'd be good for the Cavs.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2018 02:01:49
Neither and I think Barret seems like more of a sure thing. They’d find a way to destroy Zion.

Agree0 Disagree3

19 Nov 2018 23:10:40
Btev- FM put warriors together. He taught team defense but Kerr made them great. It's like fizdale was a great assistant coach, failed in memphis and will fail in NY.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Nov 2018 03:03:23
FM? Bob Myers? Kerr minds the stable, started with Durant. Jackson put a lot of the talent together by his design before Kerr and Durant showed up. Key additions but 90% was already there.
