Gsw vs the east/ west all-stars in february.

07 Jul 2018 19:51:32
I just don't see it as a good fit. He's a high volume scorer and needs to dominate the ball to give much to a team. Adding Cousins might create some issues for them, but he's worth any risk if he is even 80 percent of what he was. PLus, he gives them something they don't have. I don't see IT as a player that gives them something Durant or Curry doesn't. The same can probably be said about Melo. They both hurt talented teams last year.

08 Jul 2018 13:54:20
I disagree okc was or is a talented team. An inefficient shooting PG who steals rebounds from teammates to pad stats which means he isn't back on D and Roberson a starting SF, no bench. Glad when Melo leaves and maybe the blame will be placed where it belongs finally. Westbrook and lbj fanboys will likely never see anything without a shade of rose.

08 Jul 2018 15:55:35
Btec, some of the stuff Lebron and even more so Westbrook end up doing can be detrimental to their teams at a times, but but both players are undeniably really good. You throw them on a team with even marginal talent and they'll get you to the playoffs and in Lebron's case, he'll give you a chance to make some noise in the playoffs. Metrics don't lie and most point to Westbrook being a top 10 player and Lebron being one of the best players to ever play.

OKC wasn't a deep team this year, but when Roberson was healthy they had 2 allstars, a top 5 wing defender, a top 10 or 15 center and Melo in their starting line up. Plus, a few serviceable backups. That's a fairly solid team, if Melo would have been able to give them anything and Roberson stays healthy.

Melo at this point gives a good team almost nothing. Should OKC have given touches from Westbrook and George to let Melo isolate? It's not like that worked for the Knicks the past few years. Melo was something like the 4th worst player in the league for winshares this year. He has nothing to offer a team if they aren't in desperate need of offense.

Dwightmare to the Wizards on a 1 yr deal!!!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Good thinking for the wiz get rid of gortat because of personality issues with wall and get Howard? Hilarious.

08 Jul 2018 16:06:28
With the money they have committed to Wall and the fact that Gortat is on a steady decline they really didn't have much of a choice but to get rid of a Gortat.

We'll see if Howard was worth it, but it doesn't seem like to ridiculous a hailmary for a team that clearly needed a starting center and that's underperformed expectations 3 of the last 4 years. They could have possibly made a run at Cousins or Noel, but both come with their own set of similiar problems as Howard and no guarantee that they'll even be rotation caliber players this year.

04 Jul 2018 17:38:45
Lakers aren't stupid to trade all their young players plus multiple picks for Leonard only.. if they want that trade they can only take Ingram or Kuzma, not both of them.. with 2 1st picks and their still asking for swap picks.. Lakers will say No..

Lillard or Butler may come cheaper and better option than Leonard..

Agree1 Disagree3

04 Jul 2018 20:02:59
Spurs will smarten up. There is no chance of them keeping Leonard something will have to give. They will want something instead of nothing.

04 Jul 2018 21:07:18
Why do Lakers fans think every star will be traded to them for nothing?

04 Jul 2018 21:41:40
Because most reports say Leonard to Lakers so all the reporters and analyst are laker fans to.

05 Jul 2018 00:53:28
Most reports had PG signing with Lakers. Aldridge when he was a free agent. Lebron after miami.

05 Jul 2018 04:20:20
That's y laker fans the way they are because the media.

05 Jul 2018 14:05:42
I actually think Lillard would be more expensive in a trade than Leonard. Portland has no reason to trade him. He’s still locked in a couple more years and hasn’t expressed any interest in leaving.

05 Jul 2018 14:45:57
@bmiller66 there has been multiple reports over 6 months or more about lillard wanting to leave or willing to leave the blazers. Most recently his happy camper twitter/ instagram comment.

05 Jul 2018 19:45:57
Wouldn’t his happy camper post prove he is happy where he’s at?

Also, it really doesn’t matter. He’s locked in for 3 more years. He can want out (which I don’t think he does), but that doesn’t change who he has to play for. His value is incredibly high right now. Once he’s on his last year of his deal and doesn’t accept a supermax deal, then his value plummets like Leonard/ George/ Cousins. Before then, Portland would want an insane deal (AD level deal) to move him. They have no reason to take less than an overpay.

05 Jul 2018 20:01:15
Jason quick wrote an article yesterday that summed up the situation accurately in my opinion.

05 Jul 2018 22:06:42
Does his article or anything Lillard might want make the team value him less than Leonard is valued in SA? I don't think Olshey would give his franchise player away, to the Lakers of all teams, without getting 3 of their young players (Ingram, Kuzma, Hart) and a first.

06 Jul 2018 02:45:56
Lillard does not have the same value as Leonard, and their deals are different so I would expect an Irving-like deal offering from the Lakers. Blazers are getting bounced out of the first 1st round and possibly not making the playoffs if they don't change their roster. Lillard is a good place to start while he's fresh off the all nba team. The teams with cap don't want him. The Lakers can give the blazers good youth and a pick. Hart, Ingram,1st, 2nd and swap option for 3 seasons unless deng is thrown in then another 1st. Lakers are firm on no kuzma for anyone so far.

04 Jul 2018 03:22:15
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

Agree1 Disagree1

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.

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

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.

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.

04 Jul 2018 02:51:38
Will bossh and wade join James

Agree2 Disagree0

04 Jul 2018 07:06:48
Not a chance.

03 Jul 2018 17:33:00
I love Boogie, some team should have given him a four year 130M contract.
So he screws them all :-) :-) :-)

Agree3 Disagree1

04 Jul 2018 20:06:22
To a guy who suffered an injury that no one has come back from and been the same? 130 mil huh? Interesting.

04 Jul 2018 21:08:12
I watch in in playoffs. I've never seenBoogie play.

03 Jul 2018 12:52:04
Only Team that has a chance to compete with GSW in 2019 is Celtics

They need to sign Dwight Howard too

Pg. Irving/ Rozier
Sg. Brown/ Smart
Sf. Tatum/ Hayward
Pf. Horford/ Morris
C. Howard/ Baynes

Agree2 Disagree1

03 Jul 2018 15:46:38
They can sign Howard but I doubt they need him. If Theiss was healthy they would have hardly played Monroe. As it was they didn't I'm the playoffs. Howard can go somewhere, I don't know where that is.

04 Jul 2018 01:32:11
Howard with Washington.

04 Jul 2018 07:17:06
If Wall or Beal is moved Howard wouldn't want to go there.

Don't see Raptors as a place either.

If he wants the best chance to get to the finals it would be Boston. With Baynes signed for 2 years Dwightmare could still play a significant roll throughout the year and even into the playoffs for the first 3quarters. As a starter and off the bench .

03 Jul 2018 12:51:14

In all honesty, this matchup would be good, but who would you take?


East all-stars:

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2018 22:17:16
East has not three point shooting.
