So Argentina just beat Serbia. Is this an upset or Argentines are just being underrated? The way they play is kinda amazing. Their ball movement is on point and Scola is just ageless when it comes to fiba. Are they getting smashed by USA in the semis though?

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2019 00:01:33
Since Argentina has 0 active NBA players, I would put it in a slight upset category. Serbia's main problem was a lack of mobility and defense so any team that could score with them had a shot at beating Serbia.

11 Sep 2019 10:50:45
It’s just a single elimination tournament and Serbia was good, but it’s not like they’re the dream team. How often does the best college basketball teams actually win the NCAA tournament? It’s not like you get to see how you’re being attacked and then spend the next few days scheming for it. Their best player had a bad game and it cost them.

11 Sep 2019 12:55:24
Team USA getting drilled by the Frogs Frank Nik looks like a all star.

13 Sep 2019 05:21:37
I think GSW and other Western Teams can beat USA.

13 Sep 2019 12:01:00
Since half the Kings roster is on Serbia who just beat USA, I agree with 99.

13 Sep 2019 15:28:25
If the Lakers, Clipper, or Warriors played team USA, the two best players (at least) on the court wouldn't be on the national team.

That said, it's a tourney that no one in America really cares about unless they lose. The loss gets a solid "meh" from me. They should really just bring in NBA players for the Olympics. Let the other tournaments be played by others for exposure.

13 Sep 2019 19:34:12
You do understand that they just BARELY qualified for the Olympics. they may not be going to the Olympics if Turkey had ended up beating them. How would it have played if the USA couldn't even compete for the gold medal in basketball at the olympics?

15 Sep 2019 11:10:50
I’m pretty sure they qualified for the Olympics before they even played a World Cup game by being a top 2 Northa American team or something.

06 Sep 2019 20:32:04
So if Sacramento Kings' Bjelica and Bogdanovich are key in helping Jokic lead Serbia to the Gold Medal at the World Cup, does their trade value increase? And if so, how much is the increase? Can their $14 mil salary and a lottery protected first round pick get a borderline All-Star?

Agree0 Disagree3

07 Sep 2019 11:17:41
Patty mills is killing the World Cup go the Aussies.

07 Sep 2019 11:43:13
It’s hard to imagine a team trading a star and wanting back some older players as the meat of the trade. Maybe, if you brought in a third team, they’ve both upped their value a little and you could get some young assets back to flip.

07 Sep 2019 13:02:32
Remember I was saying a borderline All-Star. I was thinking someone like Lamarcus Alridge or Aaron Gordon. Maybe even a Covington (switch the 1st for a couple of 2nds)?

Kings roster is soo deep, they need to start packaging players.

Fox/ Joseph/ Farrell
Hield/ Bogdanovich/ James
Barnes/ Ariza
Bagley/ Bjelica/ Giles
Dedmond/ Holmes/ Swanigan

Could they get into the KAT sweepstakes without giving up Fox/ Hield/ Bagley?

07 Sep 2019 15:52:53
Maybe Aldridge. I can’t see them getting KAT without Bagley being involved unless Giles takes a huge leap or something else.

06 Sep 2019 07:41:55
Redo the 2017 draft, what are your picks for top 15? I don't know how to consider Fultz

1. PHI - Tatum
2. LAL - Mitchell
3. BOS - Fox
4. PHX - Markannen
5. SAC - J.Collins
6. ORL - Isaac
7. CHI - Kuzma
8. NYK - Allen
9. DAL - Ball
10. SAC - Smith Jr
11. CHA - Adebayo
12. DET - Z.Collins
13. DEN - Ferguson
14. MIA - Anuonoby
15. POR - White

Agree2 Disagree1

06 Sep 2019 15:52:32
Would probably move D. White and J. Hart ahead of Ferguson.

06 Sep 2019 16:46:22
White has outplayed all but top 3. Orlando need a pg.

04 Sep 2019 05:25:35
All star prediction

East
Giannis
Siakam
Kemba
Simmons
Embiid
Lavine
Beal
Butler
Griffin
Middleton
Irving
Tobias or Tatum

West
Davis
Lebron
Curry
Harden
Westbrook
Jokic
Doncic
Lillard
Kawhi
George
Towns
Gobert

Agree3 Disagree1

04 Sep 2019 11:03:47
I think someone out of Lebron, Kawhi and George doesn't make it because of not playing enough games due to load management or prefers to rest. Add Donovan Mitchell.

Also, going to take Porzingis over Gobert.

Can Fox or Holliday slip in over Westbrook if he struggles adjusting to Houston style of play? Can Williamson fight his way onto the team?

As for the East, Lowry over Lavine.

04 Sep 2019 19:05:58
Probably depends on what team is better between Porzingis and Gobert. Hard to imagine Dallas has two all stars and isn’t in the playoffs. And hard to imagine Utah has none and is a top 4 seed.

04 Sep 2019 20:38:31
I agree about Utah which is why I had Donovan Mitchell back filling the "old timers" slot.

04 Sep 2019 21:08:19
Didn't see you added Mitchell. Yeah, I think there's a really good chance he makes it.

I think there's a really good chance Westbrook doesn't, because I think Houston struggles and he's the primary reason.

I think McCollum could make a case this year too. His second half and playoffs were really good. The "who has two all stars" probably comes down to who's where in the standings too. If Portland, Utah, Houson, Dallas, Denver are top 2 in the west, they deserve two most likely.

03 Sep 2019 22:54:21
Who do yall think will be the next all star to ask for a trade? And where do you think they will end up?

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Sep 2019 03:46:03
Towns, not sure who will offer the best.

04 Sep 2019 15:33:21
For Towns i could maybe see Boston trying to get him by giving up anything except Walker and Tatum make a big 3 and build around them. I wonder how many picks OKC would be willing to give for him to pair him with SGA they have enough they could get him. i'm sure there arw other teams that would be in the rumors to get him bit I'd be willing to bet u would see OKC and BOS in Towns rumors if he requested a trade.

04 Sep 2019 16:13:52
For some reason I see Knicks for Towns.

04 Sep 2019 16:47:27
Towns certainly makes the most sense.

Maybe Lowry will be asked if he would like to leave/ be gently nudged this season.

I could also see Butler getting unhappy (again), but I don't see many more landing places for him.

Beal also will likely be asking.

06 Sep 2019 12:51:11
If you’re minnesota, I just don’t see trading Towns, even if he asks out. He has 5 years left on his deal. Unless someone offers them something like the AD or George deals, I’m going to try and make it work for the next 3 years and at that point it becomes something I have to think about.

06 Sep 2019 15:51:00
I don't see any path to anything but stagnating in the late lottery for the next 3 years with Towns. What is waiting 3 years going to do but give them 3 more mid firsts and no playoff appearances?

If they do want to keep him, they need to unload any useful players to try to tank with him.

If they do try to move him, I think they can get that kind of haul. I wouldn't trade him just to trade him, but I'd absolutely listen to offers starting right now. He shouldn't be untouchable, because the team simply isn't good with him.

02 Sep 2019 18:03:37
what if the Warriors sign JR Smith, will he fit in??

Agree0 Disagree1

02 Sep 2019 18:20:49
Not sure JR is better thsn anyone they currently have on the roster.

02 Sep 2019 18:00:28
I think the Rockets need to sign additional big man either Faried or Nene..

Agree3 Disagree2

30 Aug 2019 09:35:00
Iggy going for buyout seems inevitable.. and according to news/rumors he is going to Clippers..

I think Iggy should reconsider other teams except for another LA team the Lakers..
like Rockets, Nuggets, Raptors or Heat..

Rockets will fill up Ariza's role a 3D player who can play also PF position..

Nuggets backing up @ swingman like what he did in GSW..

Raptors, a championship team without their MVP, he could play defensive SF like Kawhi did..

Heat, its obvious this team needs some quality players, he will start at SF.. A duo of Jimmy B and him would be perfect..

Agree7 Disagree2

30 Aug 2019 15:07:28
He'd be a good fit in Portland as well. They could use a smart wing that defends.

30 Aug 2019 18:07:38
I could see Iggy for Bazemore + 2020 1st rounder happening. Gives Little a mentor to follow as well.

30 Aug 2019 22:06:50
Eew, I don’t think I’d give up Bazemore straight up for iggy, let alone include a first. Iggy is old. He can’t be a 15-20 minute guy for a whole season. I’d take him after a buyout, but not at that asking price.

31 Aug 2019 18:36:14
Was thinking more at the trade deadline. Get a fresh (assuming Memphis doesn't play him) and experenced Iggy to guard Lebron and Kawhi/ George for the playoffs?

03 Sep 2019 12:37:19
Grizz will hold on to him all year or trade him.
