I'll be honest....im not a big PG13 fan. But in the East, I think he has a better chance reaching the Finals....So much attention on Dame or Simmons being traded, I think the guy to keep an eye on is PG.

Cleveland
PG
Kuzma
Harrell
KCP

Clippers
Sexton
Nance
Prince
2 1sts from cavs

Lakers
Love
#3 (Green or Kuminga)

How in the world are the Lakers getting the #3 pick? For a pile of garbage?


2.) 07 Jul 2021 22:23:51
Clippers trade away the best player but don't get back the best pick?

Lakers can take one of those future 1st from the Cavs.


3.) 08 Jul 2021 00:01:29
All the picks should be going to the Clippers. KCP, Harrell, and Kuzma gets you Love. That’s even value.


4.) 08 Jul 2021 02:03:52
I love how this Laker fan focuses on Clippers. Lmao. Starting with I'll be honest.

I feel that G.S title window is close. So of their big 3, one has to get traded in order to prepare for the future. I would pick Klay as the star to be traded. Not because of the injury but so that he can lead a team and reach his full potential while at the tail end of his prime.....G.S already has a top 5 pick coming, thanks Minny, Wiseman.....Here's my proposal:

G.S gets Reddish, Huerter, Collins and a 1st
Atlanta gets Klay and salary fillers.

For G.S, that's a good way to build for the future while competing at a high level. Atlanta has too much talent which is stunting the development of some of those young players. Thoughts????

Lj29

1.) 15 Mar 2021 16:01:44
I don't think Atlanta should trade for a 31 year old with an injury history.
Klay is propably comming back and still good, but he doesn't fit their timeline.
I do like this trade for GS

It's not going to happen, but they should trade Curry, when they decide to blow it up. He still has the most value and he shouln't play for a rebuilding team.


2.) 15 Mar 2021 16:08:10
I disagree with your first sentence, and the disagreement trickles down from there.

I also can’t see anyone giving up half that for a guy that hasn’t played in two years.


3.) 15 Mar 2021 18:38:02
"Atlanta gets Klay and salary fillers. "
You're not very good at math. Atlanta's 3 players combined are still $20.7 M shy of Thompson's 35M salary. `Atlanta would need to include about 15M more salary going to GSW, and would leave the Warriors having to waive 3 players but still pay the luxury tax on guys not on the roster.

To be brutally honest: The Kyrie and Harden situations are down right disgusting to the league. Here's my solution....
Minnesota gets Harden, Gordon and multiple 1sts
Rockets get KAT, D-Lo and Edwards

Minnesota selling the team, Harden is not staying so give the stars a fresh start and watch Harden's stock hit rock bottom playing on a team with no talent FOREAL!

Kyrie has no loyalty so why be loyal to him.
Raptors get Ky, Jordan and Lavert
Nets get Siakam and Lowry. He would surely retire!

There are so many players that came before these 2 and for them to make things all about them is heartbreaking! Weed em out! Hand out that reality check and stop catering to this nonsense.

Lj29

1.) 13 Jan 2021 20:41:57
confused as to why you think the raptors would want kyrie, or any part of the deal you propose. lowry is far more valuable to the raptors than kyrie could ever be. kyrie might be the better player, but he could never be a better raptor.

Paul George and Patrick Beverley to the Cavs for Kevin Love and Colin Sexton...Cavs in a unique spot with the 5th pick. Let's start by looking at it like this: They're not predicted to come out the East. Got it. Pressure is off.Quite honestly, PG performs better under those circumstances. Not a diss, just facts. Now, on the board for the 5th pick is Avdija or Toppin. Starting lineup

Beverley
Garland
George
Toppin
Drummond
With Porter, Cedi and Nance coming off the bench.

Porter, Garland and Toppin surrounded by the defensive presence of Beverley, George and Drum is why you make that trade for the Cavs.

Clips needs a star that knows he's the 2nd option as well as a coachable floor general. No swipe at Beverley but he's a dog that doesn't need to adapt to new tricks. Colin is young in his career and will learn regardless of the outcome in LA. Kawhi shocked me being a diva.

Lj29

1.) 01 Nov 2020 18:37:19
No from Clips.


2.) 01 Nov 2020 19:04:10
I'll even throw in 2 future first round picks. Still say no for Clips?


3.) 01 Nov 2020 20:25:40
This trade would guarantee that Kawhi leaves in free agency. No way.


4.) 01 Nov 2020 20:27:40
Easy no from LAC


5.) 01 Nov 2020 21:29:43
Clips go from one of best defensive teams to one of worst with Sexton Shamet and Love starting.


6.) 01 Nov 2020 23:07:39
Cavs just won't be able to get rid of Love that easily.

Hate to say it.....swear I do BUT it's time for Giannis to go. Before yall drag me, answer this: What else do you want around him? Had center to stretch the floor. Nice wings, shooters, 2 All-defenders, above average coach, All-Star.....what else can you surround a superstar with? Hit the reset button. Giannis for Klay, #2 and a future 1st. draft Wiseman and go from there.

BLEDSOE
KLAY
MIDDLETON
FA- Some interior toughness
WISEMAN

Many options for that #2...maybe send to Knicks for Randle and their pick....many options. I just threw something out there but my point, I think it's in both interests to mutually split. No shade

Lj29

1.) 09 Sep 2020 19:28:07
“What else do you want around him? ”

Another real star. That’s how you win championships. He’s exactly like Lebron in his first run in Cleveland, and Howard and Shaq in Orlando, Lillard, Bosh in Toronto. I’m sure there’s more.

If he wants to stay and signs an extension, you sign him. You don’t just throw away the MVP at 25 if he wants to stay. But if he doesn’t extend, I think they have to trade him. They can’t risk him leaving for nothing.


2.) 09 Sep 2020 20:59:34
Shaq had Penny in Orlando.
And they could have won in 1995, if Olajuwon didn't kill them mentaly in game 1.


3.) 09 Sep 2020 21:26:34
Bmiller, I disagree. Giannis is a phenomenal player. But without Giannis, the bucks were still a great team. WHen Giannis played the first 3 games and lost all 3, it really said something abt him. He is still relatively young but losing in the second round is unacceptable. Maybe another superstar would be beneficial but it would be at the cost of depth. I just don’t see Giannis winning with the bucks.


4.) 09 Sep 2020 22:21:24
Without Giannis they’re maybe the 7 seed. They’re not great. There’s a lot of talent there, but no one is elite. Middleton isn’t leading a team past a first round exit.

Maybe he never wins with the Bucks. That wouldn’t be shocking. People act like winning a championship is easy. Lebron and his run of Finals appearances has totally ruined realistic expectations in the NBA.

It’s “unacceptable” to be the 1 seed and lose in the second round? Guess who else did that? 25 year old Lebron. And who got got bounced in the second and third rounds at 24 and 25 years old? Jordan.

The speed at which people are “losers” or can’t finish, or any of that other garbage is insane.

Also, superstars>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>depth.


5.) 10 Sep 2020 00:12:21
Bucks rely too much on Giannis the first 3 games and his teammates didn’t show up. Their offense became too predictable and the Miami’s defense just collapse on him. Bucks will be at best number 7 in the east without Giannis i think.


6.) 10 Sep 2020 01:14:36
@B-Mill. We're talking about Milwaukee. LeBron's first run with Cleveland, the biggest FA he could lure to play with him was Larry Hughes. Why, 2 reasons: He wasn't a proven winner and Cleveland is a small market. sound familiar?


7.) 10 Sep 2020 01:33:04
Totally agree with BMiller on this. He's 100% correct. If he signs, keep building around him. If he won't sign, trade him. Thunder got burned with Durant, Blazers got burned with Aldridge, etc. Can't let him leave for nothing.


8.) 10 Sep 2020 17:21:57
What superstar is going to want to go to Milwaukee and play 2nd fiddle with a non proven superstar? Please. Just name 1. If this was NY, BK, or LA. but this is Milwaukee. MIDDLETON is the best you're going to get. Let's face it. Now with that reality, you have to roll the dice and try to flip Giannis before it starts to look like Cleveland after Kyrie and Bron left. One guy said MIDDLETON won't get you out of the 1st round. Giannis almost got you swept in the second. This is a 2 time MVP. he needs to learn how to win in a winning culture. Dallas, GS would be excellent fits. BUT you hearing it here. If AD signs off to moving to the 5 if Giannis signs, I think Lakers find a way to make it work for LeBron last few years. Its actually not that hard: if he states he will sign with the Lakers when he becomes a FA, they'll be forced to make a trade. I think Giannis can deny trades. Could be wrong. Keep an eye on that. Especially if the Clippers take the West this year. The contracts are set up perfectly for a max contract 2021.

Serious question. a lot of basketball knowledge in this talk room.....Giannis signed the supermax!!!! Great move.

My question: What team significantly increase their shot at a title by trading for Harden? I seen a crazy thought of Middleton, Lopez, Connaughton, Wilson, DiVincenzo and pick(s) for Harden. Are they having a 3 on 3 tournament for the playoffs this year?

Help me understand all the fuss please.

Lj29

1.) 16 Dec 2020 00:35:29
New Orleans? Ingram, bledsoe + 3 of the 4 Lakers/ Bucks first rounders.


2.) 16 Dec 2020 00:37:56
What picks does Milwaukee have to trade for Harden? I believe they should stay put for now. Giannis needs depth on his team (he loves his teammates), not a ball dominant star.


3.) 16 Dec 2020 07:41:08
Bucks have no picks they owe 3 to pelicans and one to Cleveland.


4.) 16 Dec 2020 15:03:00
Is the question really “what team gets better by adding a top 15 player? ”

The answer is “most of the league unless they have to give up a top 15 player to get him”.


5.) 16 Dec 2020 15:05:05
The fuss is about an MVP being available in his prime.


 

 

14 Dec 2020 20:41:24
My take on the Harden situation: it shouldn't be one!!!! Let's look at the AD trade....The Lakers and the Pelicans made out good. BI was given an opportunity to grow...something that was impossible with Lebron, AD was the missing piece for the Lakers. Both teams paid a price and got what they paid for. In no way, shape or form will a team that trade for Harden get a missing piece that they desperately need without giving up a helluva lot more. Miami, BK, Philadelphia and Milwaukee can contend right now without Harden...and to make it so bad, whatever team gets him, actually wouldn't expand their chances much more if even. Just let it go. Build a rep on loyalty and just stay with the Rockets. Hopefully they'll give you that 50 piece offer again. Do yall need some pieces, sure, work with mgmt and try to figure it out as the season develop...I actually like the current roster better than last year's.

Can't wait for the first domino to drop because I feel that this offseason is going to be awesome. So many things to address. I think G.S is in the perfect possession. They should hold their hand so other teams don't adjust to their moves.....but make a move.

LAC are done! No way around it. Kawhi ended up being a drama queen. Didn't see that coming. They have to make a move but they're not going to get equal value. I would say Middleton and Bledsoe for Beverley and PG13. Best bet.

LAL...sign D. Gallinari and trade for CP3 if Rondo leave...but keep AC. Sure we'll sign some vets

Boston: Time to decide....if you want inside scoring, Vucevic, filler for Smart and Brown and a pick

Miami: don't make no moves

Nuggets: hate to see MPJ go but put a package together to get Beal... Harris, MPJ, picks

G.S....shock the world....Make a play Giannis! Wiggins, Green and #2. Sign Millsap

Lj29

1.) 21 Oct 2020 05:37:27
Clippers will try it again. I think they will figure it out. But if not, they can make a deal at the deadline.

Hard to make moves for the Lakers but getting Gallinari for MLE would be awesome.

The Boston one is terrible for them but it would be interesting to deal Hayward and their 1sts to get Vucevic if they want a big.

Miami needs another big body to go with Bam.

Nuggets need that 3rd star, yes, if they can snag Beal for that package it would be great, otherwise, don't let Porter go.

Not enough for Giannis.


2.) 21 Oct 2020 07:13:48
1. Clippers are not done. Few tweaks like getting a point guard they’ll be right there.
2. Don’t think lakers can afford Gallo and Paul lol.
3. Brown has more value than Vucevic... lol
4. Miami certainly needs to make moves. Anticipate overpaying for someone on a 1 yr deal so they have cap space next year: as constructed their team is not good enough to win it all right now.
5. Nuggets have said they’re not trading MPJ.
6. Not enough for Giannis lol

I see these ridiculous posts about G.S trading the #2 pick....30, 30, 32. Those are the ages of their big 3. Not to mention coming from serious injuries. It's time to retool. Here's why: #1: The Lakers are one piece away from owning the West for Lebron's last 3 seasons (preferably a shooter) They'll find a way to get JJ Redick or a 3&D guy.... #2: Losing Durant exposed their system. Durant cleaned up things offensively and defensively. #3. Age...At best, they're contending for 3 years and that's pushing it. Ben Simmons non shooting self ain't keeping them in contention. The Sixers have a squad and all he had to do is develop a shot! that's it. I'd flip Curry into some younger pieces...Chicago, #4, Lauri, Zac, and Coby...Writing this, Bulls sitting on a war chest! Cap room too. Anyway, back to G.S, time to rebuild with youth my friends. Good run but unless you getting Giannis, keep #2

Lj29

1.) 22 Aug 2020 15:27:14
This is ridiculous. If you have a dynasty or anything close to it and you’re still contending, you don’t blow it up. Especially when your 2 best players won’t regress that much bc their games are based around shooting. Since when does contending for 3+ years justify blowing it up. The Raptors traded the centerpiece of their franchise for 1 year of kawhi. The Lakers traded their whole team other than lebron for AD.

Mj won 3 Championships from ages 32-34. If the warriors even have a chance of doing the same with curry, they should take the opportunity. Trading the pick would be necessary to get a star and it would be unwise to keep it given the weaknesses and unknowns of this draft.

Just to make my point clear, in sports if a team has any sort of real chance to contend for a title and the players are happy playing for you, you do everything you can to win a title, not the opposite.


2.) 22 Aug 2020 16:21:56
I think they upgrade from Wiggins with the pick.


3.) 22 Aug 2020 16:36:21
If they trade the pick and get a star, they’ll be by far the best roster in basketball. I expect their core to be good for another 3-4 years. If they can win two rings, lose in the finals once, and not make the finals once over the next 4 years at the expense of a superstar after that, I’d do that without hesitation.

When you’re in a championship window, you go all in. Because you don’t know when another will come around.

1.) 22 Aug 2020 12:57:14
Lebron at any point could fall off the map and the Lakers have pretty limited resources to improve the roster with.

The Warriors have their backbone of a team that won a title. They have all of their firsts, the 2nd pick, a future lottery pick, a big exception, Wiggins, a potentially reformed Chriss, Looney, Paschall and they’ve been able to find talent late in drafts and by developing retreads. Why would they not push to win? They have young talent, picks, roster flexibility, and stars. They can win and build for the future. They can go get a young star potentially. If you have a chance at a title, you have to go for it and if you have a good chance at a title, you need to maximize it.

Also, what if you get Simmons working with Kerr, Curry, Klay and the Warriors development staff on shooting and with Draymond on defense. What if he ends up with a respectable jumper and his d goes up a notch or two? Simmons would be an absolute monster.


2.) 22 Aug 2020 13:45:23
You do realize that Danny Green is a 3&D guy, right?


3.) 22 Aug 2020 14:29:07
Ok. I hear you guys but let's be clear: You're right about LeBron falling off but if he sees that himself, bottom dollar he'll take a pay cut to add more talent. If he falls back to 40% during the season and you give me a "game on the lane" LeBron, I'll take that 10 years from today! Development shooting? Curry and Klay came in shooting. Steph has this father named Dell that kept them boys in the gym. i'm sure Mike had Klay in there too. If that's the case, Looney should be raining 3s? Draymond is not that same dog. He has a nice bark. Maybe a game or two but definitely lost that fight in him. Harrell is what Draymond was. But his value will be in mentoring 2 young picks while he has 3 strong years left.


4.) 22 Aug 2020 14:31:38
And that backbone is coming off of serious injuries in a league that has evolved around their style of play.


5.) 22 Aug 2020 15:21:53
So a team that has a 36 year old star (Lebron) can contend for the next few years but a team that has stars 30-32 can’t?


6.) 22 Aug 2020 20:33:46
Not to mention that those guys in their early 30s don’t have near the same miles that Lebron does, since they went College for multiple years and he came straight from high school. Years in the league matter just as much if not more than age.

Look, if GS thinks Curry isn’t a top 5 player any more and think Klay and Draymond have both taken fairly sizable steps back, maybe you break it up. If you think Curry is top 5 or Curry is still top ten and you still have like 90 percent of Klay and Draymond, you have to go for it. It’s hard to get a top 10 player, it’s almost impossible to get a top 5 player. You have one and two borderline atleast allstars. Plus picks and flexibility.


7.) 22 Aug 2020 21:46:07
Lj29, I try to elaborate and not be too abrupt, but your statements abt the warriors are just flat out wrong.

Curry is among the best in his generation, and when you pair that with a star like thompson, it only elevates his game. I don't like Draymond at all but he’s still a very, very good player. He may not be able to carry a team but his value next to superstars is tremendous. Whether or not the warriors trade 2, they will be contenders as long as they stay healthy. They could easily remain among the best teams for the next 5 or so years especially if they trade 3 for a star and add some depth in FA.

Chess move. overpayment of picks so that contenders will throw their future away. Setting the bar. Two 1sts for Covington, 3 1sts and a starter for Holiday? Crazy! Holiday is nice but let's not forget he played with a younger Rondo, AD Mirotic and Boogie and only managed to get a 6th seed in a top heavy West just 2 years ago. Basketball IQ: that was a keep away move. Don't see how that made them better. The kid from the Kings was a good move but he's a 4th option. He was still developing. 4th option as a seasoned vet, cool but not sure what they thinking. Imagine if Giannis leave, N. O has a top 5 pick for 2 years to go with BI and Zion. Yikes!

I like that for the Hornets. As long as they can keep Washington, Graham and the #3 pick, do it!

Graham
Russ
Washington
Harrell
Wiseman

Get a couple of shooters to come off the bench. Easily a playoff team if injuries don't pile up.
