Is Dolan the worst owner in the NBA?

Agree3 Disagree1

13 Mar 2019 13:35:34
He's even worse than Trump.

13 Mar 2019 16:04:42
No doubt in my eyes. No one has done less with more than Dolan. He owns the most valuable team in one of the biggest markets and can't make the playoffs more than once a decade.

13 Mar 2019 17:31:39
I have a lot more respect for Trump as a human being, and competent businessman than I do for James Dolan. Trump built an even bigger empire post Bankruptcy. Trump is way beyond Dolan in terms of ability. Where's the stopping the limousine randomly to gift a stranded motorist $50,000, and helping them stories with Dolan? I have heard several of these surrounding Trump, not one with Dolan. Tax free MSG for 50 years? Scumbag.

Lakers got plans for the off-season. Y dump zubac just to save a lil in cap space when they already have alot. its like they want to be able to offer a player a there full max. They dumped Russell, nance jr, Clarkson, randle to sign lbj. So they got to have something else lined up. Free agency will here in About 100 days!

Agree2 Disagree5

12 Mar 2019 19:16:11
Or they were just over confident, which they’ve been ever free agency since Kobe’s decline.

12 Mar 2019 22:42:33
Signed lbj and rondo its a start.

13 Mar 2019 14:26:19
After all the moves they've made, I don't trust them to have a smart plan in place. It seems like they're just shooting from the hip and hoping for the best. Maybe that lands them AD or someone else, but I don't think they truly have some master plan.

13 Mar 2019 19:50:02
Was Rondo a good move? I would argue it was a bad fit. Someone like Seth Curry would have made considerably more sense.

14 Mar 2019 15:31:37
Rondo has played well this season. I haven't seen any games he was the cause for them losing. Breaking his hand was inconvenient. Ball, Rondo was the best starting unit guard combo all year for LA.

11 Mar 2019 20:26:56
After Doncic left the game with a knee injury, should the Mavs consider shutting him down and get the best chances to retaking their first this year? They currently sit at #6 which is one pick away from getting their pick back.

Agree3 Disagree0

12 Mar 2019 00:11:46
Absolutely.

12 Mar 2019 01:57:18
They should be at 7 by end off season because the lakers will lose rest their games.

11 Mar 2019 14:05:06
Sixers will go as far embiid takes them. Against any team he can be the most dominant player on the floor cause his ability to shoot over you in the post. Stay healthy i wanna see a good lbj less playoffs

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2019 20:12:46
Embild is a head case. His team will never win with him as best player.

12 Mar 2019 00:12:45
You realize he’s still 24 right? He can get better and a team can for sure win with him as their best player with the right surrounding pieces.

12 Mar 2019 01:58:22
He just makes sixers a diferent team on both ends. For the better.

12 Mar 2019 11:18:28
How is he a head case? Seems like you mixed up him and Butler.

12 Mar 2019 19:04:06
I question Embid's longevity. I'd invest in a good back-up in philly.

12 Mar 2019 20:29:45
I think that’s why Philly was so aggressive in the trade market this year. They’re not sure how long Embiid can stay healthy.

13 Mar 2019 22:55:05
24 with what 3 4 foot and back surgeries? I not wishing bad but sketchy future. He worries about shots, stare downs not winning. He and Simmons are turnover machines and haven't improved.

11 Mar 2019 11:53:37
All the bad teams seems to be winning. Bulls, grizz and hawks. Suns beat gsw. Knicks seem to want Zion the most. Lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2019 15:40:52
I’m offended that you left out the Cavs!

11 Mar 2019 20:13:09
Cavs are in cba right? Lol.

12 Mar 2019 19:17:57
At least they still own Toronto.

13 Mar 2019 14:23:01
No Shiller, that would be the Knicks whose fans overpay for tickets to see a CBA team.

10 Mar 2019 23:39:32
Off season Warriors sign and trade Durant to Clippers for Gallinari and 2020 1st either Clippers or Phi. Warriors choice. Win-win, Gallinari will fit well with Warriors. Clippers sign Leonard and Cousins.

Cousins/Zubac
Durant/Harrell
Leonard/Green
Shamet/Willams
Gilgeous-Alexander/Robinson

Agree0 Disagree6

10 Mar 2019 03:19:38
What could the nuggets get for
Gary Harris,Tyler Lydon,Mason Plumlee,2021 1st

Agree0 Disagree1

10 Mar 2019 03:55:25
Well, nothing for Lydon who is an upcoming free agent.

Harris and Plumlee is $31 mil in salary next year which makes it tough. Perhaps a DeRozen, but definately not an All-Star level player. Plumlee seems like a Coach Pop kind of guy.

10 Mar 2019 19:33:00
Jrue Holiday
Drummond
Griffin
Gallinari, Lou, Robinson, '20 phi 1st
Crabbe, Dinwiddie, Kurucs
O. Porter
Wiggins
Bazemore, Prince, Dal pick
Dragic, Olynyk
Hayward
Aldridge, Murray, '19 tor 1st
T. Johnson, Jackson, '20 lottery protected 1st
Barnes, Giles, 2 '19 2nd's
E. Turner, Collins, A. Simons, '19 1st
Favors, Allen, Exum, '19 1st
Capella, Tucker, '20 1st
Kevin love, '21 1st.

10 Mar 2019 21:28:35
LOL. Kings would turn that offer down without a second thought. There are some others that are just as unlikely to happen.

11 Mar 2019 06:52:44
especially the Rockets offer. No way they trade their best two defenders for someone who plays the same position as James Harden.

10 Mar 2019 00:40:40
Philly trades-
Ben Simmons
'19 1st
'20 1st, '20 okc 1st

For #1

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Mar 2019 04:01:05
I would pass. But I am not a Simmons fan either.

Also, pretty sure Philly's 2020 1st will convey to the Clips. Which creates a Stepien Rule issue for trading the 2019 and 2020 picks.

10 Mar 2019 04:27:18
No stepien rule issue because the '19 pick can only be traded draft day, or after, as usual I hoped it would be assumed since the trade deadline is over.

10 Mar 2019 04:56:10
Simmons is to young and good to give up for a risk.

10 Mar 2019 08:07:28
Yea, Jorga, I don't make that assumption because there is a window of time between the end of the Finals and the start of the draft that trades do happen.

And techically this trade can go down after Philly season ends. From the CBA: "Teams are free to make trades again once their season has ended, but cannot trade players whose contracts are ending or could end due to an option or ETO. "

10 Mar 2019 13:19:02
I stand partially corrected. I failed to consider that only abput half of the lottery teams have either the cap space or a large enough trade execption to take on Simmons $6+ mil salary. but New York is one of the teams that can.

10 Mar 2019 14:58:20
Fredman, Name the trades in the last 30 years for this trade window you speak of? I have never seen anything of significance go down in may. You are a piece of work. Remind me of my wife.

10 Mar 2019 19:31:57
They can happen. They just don’t very often until draft night and after free agency starts. Most of the time it’s better to wait until all teams can trade, the lottery is over, the Stepien rule doesn’t matter, you have all the info on draft prospects, you have more intel on who will be drafted where, and/ or when free agency is less of a mystery.

10 Mar 2019 19:55:21
There were 2 trades in first half of June 2015 (2 weeks before the draft) . There are more the farther I go back. Trades during this window are usually salary dumps for teams to get below the luxury tax/ salary caps before the end of the NBA fiscal year.

09 Mar 2019 23:51:02
If you were starting a franchise today and you could have one of these and they're guaranteed to resign until the end of their career, which would you pick?

KAT

Tatum

Simmons

Harden

Durant

Kawhi

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Mar 2019 02:55:24
Leonard.

10 Mar 2019 04:02:34
Toss up between Durant and Leonard.

10 Mar 2019 04:25:04
Durant
Leonard
Harden
Tatum
Simmons
Kat.

10 Mar 2019 06:48:01
Kawhi.

11 Mar 2019 03:25:00
KAT or Kawhi.

11 Mar 2019 20:15:16
Kat or KD. I think ka needs a pg that isn't missing 20 games a year.

08 Mar 2019 11:02:23
I know it's very hard to defeat the Warriors in a series and the odds that they win the 3-peat is very high but if you guys would be asked, what 3 finals match up do you want to see this season? Let's say no Warriors.

Mine would be:
Okc vs Phi
Hou vs Bos
Okc vs Mil

Agree0 Disagree1

08 Mar 2019 12:25:52
Wizards vs Clips
Heat vs Rockets
Spurs vs Raptors.

08 Mar 2019 14:36:57
Indy VS clippers
Boston VS Lakers
Sixers VS Houston.

08 Mar 2019 19:18:32
Kings Nets

Two scrappy underdogs that were basically left for dead up until this year. A bunch of young guys taking huge leaps to be the faces of the NBA. It’s the most impossible, but funnest timeline.

Rockets Raptors

The best offensive player in the game versus the best defensive player. Plus with all the defenders that Toronto can throw at Harden and Paul, they’re both going to have to be spectacular. Also, which team melts down first.

Nuggets Bucks

The two teams that look poised to be future of their conferences. Two polar opposite forgein stars. Fast paced with a ton of shooting. This would just be a pretty series to watch in every way.

08 Mar 2019 23:33:37
Jazz celtics.

09 Mar 2019 18:02:07
Spurs vs Raptors
Bucks vs Thunder
76ers vs Rockets
Celtics vs Jazz.

11 Mar 2019 04:04:52
Portland vs Toronto

Two teams that have had playoff issues the last 3-5 years. I’m obviously also biased for Portland.
