If warriors land the top two or three picks, gm said they will think accepting to trade down for good players or more picks. Which teams do you think should trade up? In doncic and fultz trades teams gave one more pick for going up 2 spots. Some teams can think to take Wiggins for just trading up. What is your thoughts?

I picked Detroit. They have cap space to take Wiggins. kennard is a good player they can even add snell if he opts in. They can start their rebuild with anyone they want if the pick is no:1.

Agree1 Disagree0

31 May 2020 12:58:12
I don’t see many teams looking to trade up.

Agree1 Disagree0

31 May 2020 16:32:50
Kings would trade up. Just not sure how to get there.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 May 2020 21:28:55
If Shaq stayed in Orlando, does Jordan win 3 in a row? If he retires with just 3 titles, is he in the GOAT conversation? Also with talks of the NBA wanting Zion in the playoffs, is it safe to say there is a possibility the NBA influenced Shaqs move to the West to secure a greater chance for Jordan to win more titles? Just a thought....

Agree1 Disagree1

29 May 2020 23:00:27
Yes
No
No.

Agree8 Disagree3

31 May 2020 09:32:29
1) Maybe in 97-98, but in that case Malone-Stocton would have an NBA title.
2) Yes, but K Bryant would be in the conversation to be the GOAT (without being a Lakerfan)
3)NO, he would have stayed in Orlando, if they matched the offer, A Hardaway-H Grant- D Scott- N Anderson was a better surrouding cast than E Jones-N Van Exel-E Campbell-Ceballos and a 17 year old kid at that time. A Bigger contract and Hollywoold made him go to LA.

A bigger question is, what would happened if they had traded Pippen for Kemp?

Agree2 Disagree0

31 May 2020 14:13:38
How would Kobe be in the conversation for GOAT when he doesn’t win his first 3 championships, and ends his career with 2 at the most? There’s a good chance that Kobe’s career ends up like Melo’s without Shaq (and most likely without Phil Jackson) .

Agree1 Disagree0

31 May 2020 16:17:30
LA Would have made a push for C Webber in 1998
And eventualy O'Neal would ask for a trade, there's a big chance he would go to LA after all.

Agree0 Disagree1

31 May 2020 20:05:46
Kobe is in the GOAT conversation always.

Agree1 Disagree4

29 May 2020 05:24:23
Who wins

Pg Irving
Sg lillard
Sf kemba
Pf Morant
C Lowry

Vs

Pg Paul
Sg Curry
Sf Young
Pf Conley
C Westbrook

Agree0 Disagree0

29 May 2020 12:58:36
Ummm. . . Team Westbrook because he's better in the paint?

Agree1 Disagree0

28 May 2020 11:34:01
If you could have 15 players on your roster (fully healthy) who would they be?

Giannis/AD/Jokic
KD/George/Tatum
LeBron/Beal/Butler
Kawhi/Harden/Thompson
Curry/Doncic/Lillard

Agree2 Disagree0

28 May 2020 15:54:23
Agree for the most pat. One major change thou since we are saying 100% healthy.

Embiid/ Jokic
Lebron/ Giannis/ AD/ Siakim
KD/ Butler/ Tatum
Kawhi/ Thompson/ Beal
Curry/ Harden/ Lillard.

Agree1 Disagree2

28 May 2020 16:24:55
Fredman, George>Embiid and Doncic>Siakam.

Agree1 Disagree3

28 May 2020 21:49:51
Again Darry you are comparing opinions. It's his choice. Let it be.

Agree2 Disagree1

29 May 2020 00:53:23
You are right Doza, Siakim is garbage. What was I thinking? How could Siakim be better than a player who hasn't made it to the Conference Finals in 6 years. Which was my similar thinking on Beal over Doncic.

Agree3 Disagree3

27 May 2020 16:13:19
With all the GOAT talk, I just realized something while viewing all these trades and talent talk.....LeBron has set the league back a true decade...I view all the trade ideas and the talent of some of those lopsided trades and at the end of the day, you question if they would win against a LeBron James team....not to mention he's in his 17th year. CRAZY RIGHT? Another thing, who's taking the crown once he leaves? Jordan set the league back as well but it was apparent that Kobe was up next...Greek, Harden, KD, AD all sound good but they can't and don't bring to the table what Bron do. Its in no player in the league pedigree to take a team to the finals 8 years in a row...Tough shoes to fill....My question is, who got next?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2020 16:39:36
I question if those teams after lopsided trades can beat GS as much or more than Lebron’s team. GS has screwed up the league just as much because they won the arms race for a few years. You shouldn’t have 4 all stars on a team, but they did.

That said, Doncic, Zion, and Giannis are the best bet to be the “best player in the world”. I’d say Giannis already is. If Giannis wins a ring this year (and I think he will), his career arc will be on pace to be a top 10 all time player.

But no one is going to the Finals 8 years in a row again. That’s was an outlier. It’s not fair to expect that from anyone else.

Agree1 Disagree5

27 May 2020 16:54:27
I would have to say Zion or Luka. Or if lebron dominates till he like 42 he can pave the way for bronny.

Agree2 Disagree3

28 May 2020 01:23:17
Durant if comes back 100%.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2020 03:54:58
Durant is almost 32. He’s too old to count.

Agree0 Disagree1

28 May 2020 15:57:15
If Durant runs off the next 3 championships giving him 5 out of 7. That passes Lebron (3 out of 9).

Agree0 Disagree1

29 May 2020 23:01:48
But I still think that’s in this generation, not “taking the crown from Lebron after he moved on”.

Also, the chances of that happening are basically zero right?

Agree0 Disagree3

31 May 2020 14:53:10
LBJ Never can be the goaf for the simple reason, that he's the second Wilt Chaimberlain. He lost to many finals. The Goat must be a winner.

Giannis should go to the Knicks he would be the next GOAT if he wins a title with NY.

Doncic has a good chance beïng the next big thing, because he has a great wingman in Porzingis.

Zion can become the next one, if L Ball develops in an all star.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 May 2020 11:51:35
Who do you see as the next Malone/Stockton?

I got Siakam/VanVleet.

Agree0 Disagree9

26 May 2020 12:56:18
There’s not much of a great PG/ PF combo nowadays. Morant/ JJJ, Fox/ Bagley, Ball/ Zion? I can’t see many young combos that will have that potential.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 May 2020 19:23:33
If you mean “a hall of fame PG/ PF connection that stays on the same team for a long time”, I don’t see one.

Agree1 Disagree7

26 May 2020 21:07:24
I see fox and bagley but most pgs today score first. There won’t be another Stockton.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 May 2020 02:45:11
Brogdon/ Sabonis?

Dunn/ Bam?

Bledsoe/ Giannis FTW!

Agree0 Disagree1

27 May 2020 09:10:57
KAT Russel, could become good.

Porzingis- doncic.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2020 16:45:24
But like, are Dunn, Brogdon, FVV, Russell, Bagley, Ball, or Bledsoe more than nice players?

If those duos count, how about Lillard/ Nurkic?

Maybe Giannis forces his way to Dallas. Doncic/ Giannis could be it.

Or maybe NO drafts a star guard. That’s probably the most likely option.

Or Atlanta picks up a star big. Trae and Wiseman?

Agree0 Disagree4

27 May 2020 20:41:33
I don't see a pass first point guard in today’s NBA. If Stockton is the comparison, Ball could be the closest (only because of the pass first mentality) if he ever find his groove playing with Zion.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2020 21:12:32
Ok, I have the answer, but it’s weird. It’s Steph and Draymond.

The difference is that Draymond is the pass first guy and Curry is the primary scorer of the duo. But it’s two guys likely headed to the hall of fame, one an MVP, and they both have been with the team that drafted them together for a long time.

Agree4 Disagree2

28 May 2020 01:21:09
Good one BMiller. I agree.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 May 2020 03:21:31
Walker-Tatum?

Agree0 Disagree1

29 May 2020 00:54:38
Actually, we probably already had that duo. Kyrie-Lebron.

Agree0 Disagree3

24 May 2020 16:16:46
i read an article that suggested that Cuban tried to convince Jordan to sign with Dallas in 2001.

those dallas teams won 57 and 60 games without Jordan and were eliminated by sacramento in 2001 and the spurs in 2002.

Do you guys think they could have won a title?

C:Lafrenz/Bradley
PF:D Nowitzky/Manning
SF:M Finley/Najera
SG:M Jordan/ Buckner
PG: S Nash/Van Exel

I believe tha team could have gone for a three-peat.
Beating Sacramento-LA and the Nets in 2002, The Spurs and the Nets in 2003 and LA and Detroit in 2004

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2020 22:50:09
What offense are they running? The Triangle with Jordan or "pick n pop" with Nash and Nowitzki? Just not sure this is a truly symbiotic pairing.

Agree0 Disagree3

25 May 2020 00:57:09
I think Nash and Dirk are smart and unselfish enough to play whatever style Jordan wants. And I think those two would be great in just about any style.

Agree2 Disagree3

25 May 2020 08:52:53
No matter what offense they use, that team will win at least a championship. Could have been a great match up with the Lakers and Spurs.

Agree3 Disagree0
