I really like that Denver team ( assuming a younger Anthony) . And I downgrade the OKC team because we have seen that Westbrook, Harden and Durant can not play together and achieve their ceilings.

Kind of like the NOLA team as well.

I like the Ind team.

SPURS. All 5 HOFers?

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Mar 2019 17:39:10
What about Indy, strong team, with a deep bench

PG: G Hill/ M Jackson/ J Rose
SG: R Miller/ Oldadipo/ D Granger
SF: P George/ R Artest/ C Mullin
PF: J'O Neal/ D West/ D Davis/ A Davis
C: M Turner/ R Smits/ Sabonis.

Agree2 Disagree1

25 Mar 2019 19:09:06
Just kind of realized this is biased to teams that have traded all-Stars for other All-Star (like the George-Oladipo)

Agree0 Disagree2

26 Mar 2019 00:24:24
Irving

James
Nance sr

My best team.

How do you have Magic for the Lakers and not Bird/ McHale for the Celtics?

Simmons > Holiday.

25 Mar 2019 16:09:52
On paper the clippers suck. Doc is a spectacular coach.

Agree5 Disagree1

25 Mar 2019 09:42:06
Should the clippers have tanked this year?

It's great they give it all, but they lose their pick to Boston and this reduces their chances getting A Davis or a young asset.

Agree2 Disagree2

25 Mar 2019 16:38:46
They obviously made a choice to win, and forego AD dreams or didn't think they had a shot at him, or have plans for someone else? Jerry West is a genius with player acquisition, I don't have reason to doubt him yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2019 16:39:24
No, I get the whole tanking for better asset thinking, but I don't believe the Clippers are in the trading/ drafting for talent as much as they are in the signing UFA talent. To sign the top level talent, teams have to show that they are a (current) winning organization, have a solid head coach, a solid front office, and a solid owner. In Doc Rivers, Jerry West and Steve Ballmer, they Clippers show that they check all these blocks.

Plus, winning shows that the Clippers are about now, not 3-5 years from now when the young talent is developed.

25 Mar 2019 00:03:30
With the last pick in the 2nd round, Kings select . Taco Fall.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Mar 2019 02:09:34
Wouldn't spend the pick. Obviously someone has said: Stop bringing the ball below the top of your head!, about a million times.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Mar 2019 03:35:27
Undrafted free agent he will be a decent backup big.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Mar 2019 14:11:43
I just think he can be a defensive disruptor that most teams (besides Utah and Philly) could use. Develop into something like a taller Clint Capella.

Agree1 Disagree1

25 Mar 2019 15:29:38
His speed, and not leaving the key to even fake a perimeter closeout stood out to me. The NBA will find a way to make those open 3's. The NCAA doesn't capitalize quite the same. If he bites, then guys will easily go around him. Guys like Lillard, Walker, Harden will shred the cheese on Tacko's taco.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2019 01:07:50
Duh, Jorga. They do that on lottery big men as well.

But for the last pick in the draft to be a backup center when the opponents bench is not full of shooters. i'd give it a crack.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Mar 2019 05:19:50
Hey fredman that wasn't patronizing, or stating the obvious. If your so smart then stop coming on here patronizing everyone. I wasn't being rude, but you are. Good day to you.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2019 07:51:11
Guys like Lillard, Walker, Harden will shred the cheese on Tacko's taco.

This is not obvious? Really? Who honestly believes that Taco could shut down NBA All-Star point guards? Duh, no one.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2019 11:45:24
Kind of missing the point. You want to spend a draft pick on a 4th year player, who doesn't budge an inch on perimeter closeout's in the NCAA mens league, and I'm being facetious? Good day to you.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2019 12:01:41
Yes, I do want spend a pick on that. The absolute last pick in the draft so I get the rights to him versus it being a free for all in free agency. Better than drafting a Euro who may never come across the ocean.

Also, the whole bringing the ball down below his head is a whole core/ leg strength issue that can be resolved as he gets older/ stronger.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2019 18:09:50
You really believe you know more than everyone, and if they didn't type it in print that somehow implies they didn't know, and it's your job to patronize them? Tacko had 3 seasons with no-takers. Bol-Bol is going to get worked like Ingram if he doesn't put on weight, is injured significantly, and he is projected in the lottery by some still. Your being sensitive for no reason. I wasn't trying to be a Jerk or humiliate you, I'd appreciate the same respect in return. If that was insulting to you, then you're looking for it. I can't change or help with that.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Mar 2019 18:58:11
Best young/ future backcourt?

Ball/ Ingram
Young/ Huerter
Dlo/ Harris
Fox/ Hield
Morant (? ) / Booker.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Mar 2019 20:15:17
Wouldn't it be D-lo, Levert? Harris is a pretty big guy, and not really mobile. Shoots out of the ball though.

Fox, Hield/ Bogdanovich is the best of the group.

Young, huerter, is terrible defensively. They'll sneak up on a few teams with shooting though.

Ball/ Ingram need work, but next season could be something. Ingram runs right into James position, but it's good for his underdeveloped spot up game. Ultimately good for James career extension. Ingram needs Hart to play better, and James to give him more room, and put on some more muscle weight for his further success.

Booker/ Morant is pretty good. I'd probably run the risk on drafting Zion, or trade my pick for 2 picks. A PF and a ball handling guard would be great for them. Like Jaxson Hayes, Trey Jones.

Agree0 Disagree2

24 Mar 2019 22:20:39
So is Fox/ Hield/ Bogdanovich/ Bagley in the same ball park as past OKC youths of Westbrook/ Durant/ Harden/ Ibaka?

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Mar 2019 01:37:08
3 future MVP's might be expecting a little too much. Fox, and Bagley maybe, maybe. It's way too early to call though.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2019 02:11:03
Just saying that could be the ceiling for this team, which would be pretty scary.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Mar 2019 03:36:25
Harris/ Murray's for Denver. They are young and winning already.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2019 04:48:33
Their winning is more Jokic then Murray and Harris combined.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Mar 2019 09:23:00
Fox-hield and Booker-Morant.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Mar 2019 06:41:03
What upgrade can MIL do next year to be a legit championship contender? They already have Bledsoe back. I doubt they gave up Middleton & Lopez those 2 are significant for their success. How about other FA's like Mirotic? They could trade Brogdon for an upgrade but what kind of move does this team could make to improve their team?

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Mar 2019 15:38:48
If Durant leaves the Warriors that is a potential championship team.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Mar 2019 04:01:51
Tatum horrible game and bridges put up 20

Agree1 Disagree1

24 Mar 2019 15:51:13
Are you really going to point out every time Tatum has a bad game to pump up the Lakers players?

Ingram, horrible game cause he’s physically unable to play.

Agree0 Disagree2

24 Mar 2019 16:14:12
Tatum had a up and down season. he didn't get any better. Tatum Just had a Jeremy min spur last year in the playoffs. Playing with lbj Kuz and Ingram plus ball improved but got hurt. Tatum didn't improve playing with Irving.

Agree1 Disagree1

24 Mar 2019 17:43:55
ll- easy fix. Irving leaves Tatum is number one option. Celts have 3 picks to add depth and cap to resign rozier. Celts win more without kyrie. Lakers aren't getting younger healthier and no FA stars goin.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Mar 2019 23:43:36
Look at Durant and curry they play excellent together with Thompson as the 3rd option. It's like tatum never took the step to be a second just like Ingram didn't. But before he got hurt Ingram was showing it playing with lbj. Tatum shooting is way down. Tatum is overrated.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Mar 2019 23:50:40
With tatum being the number one option how good will they be.5th seed just because there deep. But wouldn't know if Knicks bulls atl and nets get better. Horford could leave and Morris plus Irving so how good will celtics be with rozier brown tatum smart Heyward. Leonard could leave the raptors. So things could change

I think horford was the reason for there success and still the reason for there success.

Agree1 Disagree2

25 Mar 2019 04:54:29
I'd be surprised if Leonard stayed in Toronto. Even if they win a title.

Agree0 Disagree2

23 Mar 2019 21:29:39
Nuggets get Davis, Hill

Pels get Harris, Porter Jr, Beasley 2020 Nuggets 1st 2022 Nuggets 1st

Denver would have a true Twin Tower

Pels stay cometitive, get young talent

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Mar 2019 22:34:57
If DEN releases Milsap they would still need cap space to make the salary difference work, by a couple Million.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Mar 2019 23:53:55
How bout denver cut milsap and 2 bench guys sign KD and mpj backs him up?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Mar 2019 01:42:52
DEN needs more cap for KD. Could trade, Milsap isn't guaranteed until July 13th, GSW could waive him, but I wouldn't help another team acquire my best player for nothing.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Mar 2019 13:07:02
Jorga not a trade. Denver has team option and KD is a free agent. If Denver let's Milsap go and IT that 37 million in cap.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Mar 2019 16:08:00
If they let Milsap go they only have 10 mil in cap. Their projected salary is 120 million. They would need to be at 100 million to have 30 million in cap space. Would need to release Harris, and Thomas too to get to 30 million under to absorb Durant into their cap.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Mar 2019 17:44:51
Declining his option opens his salary up yes? That's 30 million.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Mar 2019 19:15:00
Yes, it's saves the nuggets from paying 30 million to Milsap. No, it does not give them available cap space to sign Keven Durant. Not signing Milsap only gives DEN 10 million in cap space. To sign Durant you need at least 30, which is why a trade would need to be worked out for it to be possible. No B. S. It's why the Cavs would keep guys on their roster sometimes to keep the salary slot open, just to keep the ability to continue to spend that money. Once you go back under you have to pay currently rostered players on your team more money to be able to spend over the cap again, you can't sign a free agent to a contract over the salary cap, if you are under. MLE, BAE, have slightly different rules, and then some more rules if you're over the luxury tax line.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2019 02:14:44
Shiller, if Denver doesn't pick up Millsap, they stull have $91 mil in guarenteed salary for next year (waiving all cap holds) . This gives them $18 mil to sign Durant which is not enough.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Mar 2019 04:30:47
That's what a 108 cap estimate? I'd be surprised if its higher than 103.
