2.) 27 Apr 2021 16:23:15
Doza I agree.

3.) 27 Apr 2021 16:23:51

WAS get Pascal Siakam
- get their 3rd star to go along with Beal and Westbrook

Pg Westbrook
Sg Beal
Sf Avdija
Pf Siakam
Ce Len/Lopez

TOR get Thomas Bryant, Rui Hachimura, Davis Bertans & 1st round pick
- rebuild. Get a quality center and a young talent who can improve under Toronto's development

Pg VanVleet
Sg draft pick
Sf Anunoby
Pf Hachimura
Ce Bryant

1.) 22 Apr 2021 05:17:26
Wizards just need to rebuild from complete scratch. Trade Beal for multiple picks and prospects.

2.) 22 Apr 2021 06:39:18
Westbrook and Beal seem to be doing well together and build on that.

Hachimura Avdiva Bryant K. Jones-10
Turner Warren Martin

Westbrook/ Mudiay/ Winston
Beal/ Mathews/ Martin
Warren/ Carroll/ Hutchinson
Bertans/ Gafford/ Henson
Turner/ Lopez/ Len.

3.) 22 Apr 2021 13:29:00
toronto is not going to rebuild. the Raptors already have their core set to move forward. while any of them may be available for an immediate upgrade none of the core are going to be traded for draft picks or prospects.

4.) 22 Apr 2021 20:04:46
I don’t think I’m that high on Siakim, but I still think that offer feels light.



17 Mar 2021 21:51:22

NYK get Sabonis & Warren

IND get Barrett, Toppin, Rivers (waive), 2021 1st unprotected, 2021 DAL 1st, 2023 NYK 1st lottery protected


NYK get JJ Redick

NOLA get Ntilikina & Knox

NYK new roster

Pg Quickley/Rose/Payton

Sf Ingram/Hart
Pf Williamson/Knox/Melli
Ce Adams/Hayes/Hernangomez

1.) 18 Mar 2021 11:24:08
Nyk is better to just stay with what they got. In 1-2 years, Barrett will likely be close to Sabonis level (Allstar) . They’d be better to trade for Turner as he’s much cheaper. They also don’t need to overpay for reddick.

2.) 18 Mar 2021 17:01:57
USA you just made Knicks into the kings all offense no defense. Not Thibodeau type of team. Only pacers player draw attention is Turner

Pacers get Toppin Knox Payton Dallas 21 1st
Knicks get Turner Aldridge Lecque Stanley
Cavs get Ntilikina Noel Rivers Dal 23 1st Det 21 2nd

Rose/ Quickley/ Lecque
Burks/ Stanley/ Pinson

MIN get Collins
They covet him and looks like they want him badly and willing to pay

Pg Russell
Sg Edwards
Sf Beasley
Pf Collins
Ce Towns

DET get Culver, Reid, Snell (waive) & 1st round pick MIN 2023
Get a young guard to develop and a 1st for Grant

Pg Hayes
Sg Culver
Sf Bey
Pf Doumboya
Ce Reid

ATL get Grant, 1st round pick swap with MIN 2022
If they aren't willing to pay Collins, Grant is a good cheap replacement for him

Pg Young
Sg Bogi
Sf Hunter
Pf Grant
Ce Capela

1.) 14 Mar 2021 14:17:54
So Collins is worth a solid backup center a swap pick and and a first for a rental? Lol.

2.) 14 Mar 2021 14:37:40
How does Minny swap a pick that they may have to give to Golden State?

3.) 14 Mar 2021 16:31:29
Collins wouldn’t be a rental. Being a restricted free agent, trading for him would basically confirm you will match any offer he get and/ or offer a big contract.

4.) 14 Mar 2021 17:32:48
Wolves can afford to match? Going over cap for a losing team isn’t consider smart. I am a wolves fan and without a OG that plays defense and passes every other move is lipstick on a pig.

5.) 14 Mar 2021 17:34:10
Is Grant worth less than Collins?

6.) 14 Mar 2021 18:20:00
Solid idea

7.) 14 Mar 2021 23:02:37
Never said it was a smart idea to get Collins, just that it wouldn’t be a rental. I have no idea what Minny is going to do. I’m not sure that Towns can be part of a good team, due to his terrible defense.

8.) 15 Mar 2021 12:11:29
Change 2022 pick 2023 and 2023 to 2024. And send snell to Minnesota for rubio for salary dump.



14 Mar 2021 11:43:40

GS get Jerami Grant, Delon Wright, 2025 lottery protected 1st round pick

Pg Curry/Wright/Wanamaker
Sg Oubre/Bazemore
Sf Grant/Lee/Toscano
Pf Green/Paschall/Smailagic
Ce Wiseman/Looney

DET get Andrew Wiggins, MIN 1st round pick

Pg Hayes
Sg Wiggins/Diallo
Sf Bey
Pf Doumboya
Ce Plumlee/Stewart

1.) 14 Mar 2021 13:45:42
If Detroit were only giving up Grant, I don't think they do it.

2.) 14 Mar 2021 16:59:57
Detroit do that quick. That minny pick is a building block while grant is an asset.

3.) 14 Mar 2021 20:42:17
Pistons will definitely trade Grant for a top 5 pick this year or next.

4.) 15 Mar 2021 02:41:02
It's a very nice pick, but isn't Wiggins a negative asset? Plus how will other free agents look at Detroit if they trade him so quickly.

5.) 15 Mar 2021 12:17:57
Wiggins isn't negative anymore. He isn't positive neither. That minny pick has more value than %90 of NBA players. It is the best draft pick in the market.

Did it ever happen in the history that the 7th and 8th seed beat both 1st and 2nd seed in the playoffs?

1.) 12 May 2021 16:55:56
Yes. Since the expansion of 6 to 8 teams in 82-83 10 teams have eliminated the 1st and 2nd seed, most recently the 2017 Pacers.

2.) 12 May 2021 17:00:30
No, and it won’t happen this year either. I can see the Lakers upsetting whoever they play, but I wouldn’t bet on it. I can’t see GS doing it, especially if they play Utah.

3.) 12 May 2021 20:02:18
1994 Nuggets (8) beat Seattle (1) overcoming a 2-0 deficit.

4.) 13 May 2021 05:41:15
1999 Knicks (8) beat Heat (1).

Do not think that there has ever been a playoffs where the #1 AND #2 seeds lost in the first round of the playoffs.

5.) 13 May 2021 11:02:11
Biggie he talking about the same year. did a first and second seed lose to 7th and 8th.

6.) 13 May 2021 14:00:37
Not in the same year to my recollection.

7.) 13 May 2021 16:06:34
He saying the lakers/ portland warriors could beat the suns and jazz in first round.

8.) 13 May 2021 17:36:11
Who is "He"?

9.) 13 May 2021 20:46:47
“He” is the original poster. He asked if both the 7 and 8 seeds have won in a year. The answer is no.

10.) 14 May 2021 01:25:55
BMiller, maybe it depends on Donovan Mitchell's status. Warriors have a decent chance of beating the Jazz without him.

11.) 14 May 2021 21:55:42
Even without Mitchell, I wouldn’t give the Warriors much of a chance. Small chance though, sure.

Their depth is amazing though. Bogdanovic can jump to the first or second scorer and they don’t lose a lot.

Utah has probably 5 of the top 7 players between the two rosters without Mitchell. 6 of 8 with him. Same could probably be said about Utah vs Lakers.

12.) 15 May 2021 09:01:12
Will your faith with the Jazz winning a chip finally come this season? We'll see. It's exciting. These western conference battles will be fire. Jokic vs Doncic looks like a lock. Blazers/ Lakers vs Clippers could happen. Lakers vs Warriors play-in. Time for Phoenix and Jazz to test if they are championship contenders.

13.) 15 May 2021 18:55:45
If Denver wins against Portland and Lakers win out. so it’s not a lock with joker and doncic. Right now it’s Leonard verse doncic.



09 May 2021 21:52:42
Damn i'm so happy for the New York Knicks and their fans. They're playing with huge heart.

1.) 11 May 2021 18:09:18
With a terrible owner.



08 May 2021 04:35:18
Kuzma is straight trash. Who would have any interest in him. Lmao.

1.) 08 May 2021 20:42:52
Kuz ain’t trash he just have more bad games thin an average star.

2.) 09 May 2021 04:47:39
Kuzma is Bagley in a Lakers uniform.

3.) 09 May 2021 14:29:45
Exactly Fred. His inconsistency is sickening.

4.) 10 May 2021 05:23:51
He did not play and the Lakers win.

5.) 10 May 2021 07:39:00
Maybe he played hurt.

6.) 11 May 2021 13:18:35
Excuse for everything eh?

7.) 11 May 2021 18:12:32
Kuzma a star?

Maybe at one time by the Kardashians. But only one time!



30 Apr 2021 01:10:17
It's amazing how CP3 turned all that "overpaid" tag to MVP chants.

1.) 30 Apr 2021 07:40:42
i'm happy for him.

2.) 30 Apr 2021 19:23:56
I was the one saying his pay was right but bmil was the main one saying he was overpaid with no value.

3.) 30 Apr 2021 22:09:23
I don’t care what hate I get and I’m not the only one who say this but it’s magic Oscar Paul then. Curry. I don’t care how much. Success curry got making 3’s. he not better then Paul overall.

4.) 30 Apr 2021 23:54:42
He’s still overpaid. He’s has like the top 5 highest salary this year. Great player and great leadership. But shouldn’t get paid 40mil+ and like a top 5 player.

5.) 01 May 2021 14:59:03
He was insanely overpaid for what he did. No one should have expected him to get healthier and better into his late 30’s. He was the worst contract in the NBA, but that changed.

Paul has zero success in the playoffs. How can he be ahead of Curry when Paul has 1 conference finals appearance (as the second best player with an MVP teammate), and Curry has the success he has?

6.) 01 May 2021 15:37:05
Because he a complete player unlike curry. Curry a 3 time champion with no finals mvps. Chris Paul only problem is injuries. Look at curry without a stacked team no play offs. Chris Paul carried thunder and elevated the sun’s from lottery to contenders. How did Paul do that he stayed healthy

4x first team All-NBA
4x second team All- Nba
Third team all nba
7x first all defense
2x second team all defense
6x assist leader
4x assist leader
That’s a complete point guard
Curry may won a couple mvp and won 3 championships but that’s team success. if Paul got traded to Lakers I think he have a few rings too. So without Irving and love getting hurt Cavs win 2015 finals. Without Durant going to Warriors, Warriors wouldn’t won nothing. Durant became a warrior for one reason because curry sucked his first years and only got 60 mil so that enabled the Warriors to sign Durant. in all reality curry winning3 chips was luck.

7.) 01 May 2021 15:39:23
Chris Paul was never on a super team like curry. if curry so good why can’t he win without klay and Durant.

8.) 01 May 2021 15:53:04
I don’t see how someone top 3 in the mvp is overpaid. Embiid joker Paul. just cause Paul don’t score 30 a night he still sets up his team to win and plays superior defense. He not overpaid. If Paul overpaid then what was is k love. K love overpaid, long Paul stay healthy he not overpaid.

9.) 01 May 2021 16:20:33
Paul was on lob city, a team with 3 all stars. Paul was teamed with Harden. How was he not on super teams?

Your logic of Curry’s success is so dumb there’s no arguing. You hate Curry, no one will change your idiotic opinion.

10.) 01 May 2021 18:26:46
CP3 had prime Blake and Jordan. One of the best shooters in Reddick and one of the best 6th mans ever in Crawford.

11.) 01 May 2021 22:44:23
Lou William Blake dj and cp3 couldn’t get out of second round.

12.) 02 May 2021 00:45:07
But did they stay healthy huh no.

13.) 02 May 2021 00:49:25
Naw I love curry. I have a special place for curry. top 4 point guard of all time but also number 3 shooting guard of all time.

14.) 02 May 2021 00:55:12
Paul was killing the warriors till he got hurt. How is it dumb though it's TRUE. if curry got a max after rookie deal there no signing durant and with love and Irving hurt helped the warriors win. how that logic dumb that's reality. it's just all the pieces fell in play for curry to be a winner.

15.) 03 May 2021 14:16:19
Curry>Paul all time. Curry on the alltime PG top 5.

Magic, Curry, Stockton, Thomas, Paul my top 5.

16.) 03 May 2021 22:08:12
I think you guys are trying to compare apples and oranges a little bit. As for PGs, they are nothing alike. CP3 will outsmart (with dirty tricks and flopping) and make his team play better (with assists and defense) . Curry will completely change how the opponent plays the game. Plus, Curry's game has a psychological aspect to it as well. When he is bombing away from 40 feet and hitting shots, it literally crushes the soul of the opponent with a "How are we suppose to stop that? ".

So it is simply a matter of preference. You can go with the old-school, cagey veteran passing PG or you can go with the unstoppable natural talent that crushes opponent's wills.

17.) 03 May 2021 23:37:48
Curry needs a Batman to be affective Paul is Batman.

18.) 05 May 2021 16:40:52
Paul’s best success as Batman was the second round. How is he a good Batman? Curry was a championship as the best player (and I’d argue he won 3 as the best player) .

Curry is willing to set his ego to the side and let others thrive. That’s a huge pro to his side to me.

Also, how is a pass first PG that doesn’t lead his team in scoring the Batman? Paul clearly needs a superstar scorer for his team to thrive.



23 Mar 2021 22:29:09
If Miami gives Tyler Herro for Lowry, i'll be confused and will not believe in Riley anymore lmao.

1.) 24 Mar 2021 11:20:50
Well goes to show how skilled Masai is :)

2.) 24 Mar 2021 11:43:14
After he overpaid dragic Tyler Johnson whiteside then let djj and crowder leave why do you believe in him?

3.) 24 Mar 2021 15:21:00
There was this dude on Bleacher Report tell him Herro is just another Kyle Korver hahahahahah.

4.) 24 Mar 2021 19:35:37
I’d take the under if you asked me who has more career all star appearances when Herro is done.

5.) 25 Mar 2021 03:05:43
Bad take.

Wizards starting to click. I don't think they will trade Westbrook and Beal at least until next year's deadline.

Right now, Warriors offer is the best due to the pick involve and of course Wiseman to replace KAT at center.

I don't know but i feel like Rozier and Russell are close to value for the Hornets so i don't see them going after this unless Rozier demands a lot.

Jimmy Butler all over Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis all over Curry as long as Pelicans could make playoffs (doubt)
