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.

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.

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

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

Dunn/ Bam?

Bledsoe/ Giannis FTW!

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

Porzingis- doncic.

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?

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

23 May 2020 16:29:48
Who is better Siakam or Tatum?

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2020 16:47:54
I've got Siakam. It's really close; they're both all-star-caliber forwards playing alongside all-star-caliber guards. And they both lead their team in ppg.
But Siakam has more experience. He has a ring.
Plus I just like him.

23 May 2020 16:56:58
I think spicy p.

23 May 2020 18:56:27
Tatum. I think he’s a lot closer to a superstar offensively. He can be a one man offense. He could be the best player on a championship team in a year or two if he keeps improving. I don’t see that from Siakam.

23 May 2020 21:25:15
Tatum. As BMiller said, he can be the best player on a championship team if he keeps playing this way. I see a taller young Kobe Bryant in him.

24 May 2020 11:58:30
It’s close, but when in doubt, I take the guy who can handle the ball more and/ or the wing. That’s more Tatum than Siakam.

24 May 2020 19:04:29
Siakam can ball-handle. He can play SF; he can shoot well.

Siakam also has more experience. That's the main difference.

25 May 2020 01:23:25
If we talk about versatility, Siakam’s best position is PF, Tatum SF i think. Tatum can play above average at PF and Good at SG. Siakam can play SF i just don't think he’ll be good at it. At center too. Anyway, if i have to choose it would be Tatum. His ceiling is higher for me.

26 May 2020 04:26:25
I think it’s a lot simpler than all of that position and ball handling conversation.

I think Tatum is the kind of guy that throws his team on his back and carries them to a playoff series win. I don’t see that from Siakam.

26 May 2020 11:51:07
Bmiller-Celtics have Kemba to do half of the work.

27 May 2020 05:16:03
Darry why are you throwing Kemba in the conversation the comparison is Tatum and Siakam only not the current teams’ structure.

27 May 2020 15:37:18
Yes but Tatum has never carried a team on his back. He has another star to do it for him. Siakam will have to carry the Raptors in the playoffs.

27 May 2020 16:53:03
No star does it alone. Siakam was carried by Leonard and Lowry to a championship.

Tatum took his team to the ECF without another star his rookie year. He was the best player on that team during the playoffs. But a lack of a second star with his was why they ended up losing to Cleveland.

28 May 2020 01:25:01
We'll see how Siakam performs if playoffs resume. If he carries this Raptors team to finals, you win Darry.

22 May 2020 06:56:43
Can't wait to see the nets at full strength. Can Durant be too much and take over the East or will Giannis stay at top. Next season going to be better then this one for sure

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2020 12:14:30
Yeah, if durant is healthy, won't the Raptors have to face Durant Irving Dinwiddie Harris LeVert and others? That's a scary good team.

27 May 2020 16:28:50
Only 1 ball though. Good team on paper but the reality is the egos will trump the system. Put a great coaching staff in place that can manage this and very dangerous. A championship coaching staff couldn't manage KD and his ego. and now you add Kyrie. disaster ready to happen. Spencer better off splitting town. No need to waste time and talent where you've proven you're clutch and in clutch time, you're not an option. Next season, KD gone miss outta Klay Steph and Dray. that's IQ, Defense, and knockdown shooting. I have Boston, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Indiana and Toronto ahead of them. Neck and neck with Miami.

21 May 2020 22:11:43
Did you guys see Espn's all time starters for each team?

For the Lakers they have

Magic
West
Kobe
Kareem
Shaq

They didn't include Lebron James for the reason he's not with the Lakers for that long. That's fine but for the Clippers they have

Paul
Kawhi
Griffin
Brand
McAdoo

then Raptors also have Kawhi in their team.

Then Kawhi is not included in the Spurs line up.

I'm a Kawhi Leonard fan and i think he has the potential to be in the all time starting 5 of every team he's played with. I'm just a little confused about the basis if their listings. Ok, i apologize for this non sense lol.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 May 2020 00:44:44
What should the Wizards do with Bradley Beal? They will sit in mediocrity with only Beal as their best guy and nothing to build on. I think they definitely trade him for the best deal they can but most teams with big assets will not be willing to sacrifice them all for 2 years of Beal unless they can convince him to stay long term. Some of the teams that can hold on to Beal and be competitive are Miami, Milwaukee, Clippers, Nuggets, maybe Lakers but what are these teams offering that may entice the Wizards. I think it will be hard for the Wiz to fetch a king's ransom offer for Beal.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2020 17:08:20
Suns could offer the 9th pick, Oubre, more future picks, and salary fillers.
Knicks could offer the 6th pick, barrett, Randle, and future firsts.
GS could offer Wiggins, the first pick, paschall, and future picks.

21 May 2020 18:30:00
I like the GS idea. I realize they want to make a run at Giannis, but Beal would be a great fit.

The Suns one is interesting too. They seem desperate to win.

21 May 2020 21:18:54
Not sure curry and Beal both can hide on defense and taller sf might bother klay.

22 May 2020 01:16:18
Dinwiddie, Allen, Lavert + 2 firsts?

22 May 2020 04:08:21
Curry is a pretty average defender. Beal definitely isn’t horrible. Do they really need to hide either of them?

Yeah, Klay might struggle guarding Lebron and Durant. But not sure there’s too many guys that would really take advantage of him. He’s 6’7, he’s a huge SG or a average size SF.

23 May 2020 16:58:33
Bmiller- by numbers this year Beal was second worse guard defender behind only trae.

23 May 2020 19:17:56
Washington is also an absolute dumpster fire of a roster around Beal. He’s the entire offense, and has no one around him to bail him out defensively.

I don’t see a horrible defender when I watch him. I see an overtaxed guy knowing that he can’t win.

19 May 2020 22:14:46
possible move for these teams PACERS Bulls jazz 76ers hornets in off-season and free agency and draft day .

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2020 03:14:57
Good chance to be none for all these teams if they don't finish the season and next years salary cap plummets.

20 May 2020 15:32:06
76ers might try to move Horford. Say Horford Thybulle and picks for Lowry.

16 May 2020 12:27:50

Come on darry.

19 May 2020 18:24:41
Wow y'all agreeing with usa.

19 May 2020 18:33:41
Darry, most people on here don’t care about the Raptors.

19 May 2020 23:33:31
It’s not that I don’t care about the Raptors. It’s the fact that an all rookie team and all defense team for one team is just stupid.

20 May 2020 12:30:29
I know. I was just bored and wanted to have some fun.

20 May 2020 12:30:52
But still. 15 agrees with usa.
