    I've honestly never seen so many guys switch teams like this offseason. Damn near every team in the league is new except for a few.

    I just want us to get the playoffs, and maybe take a game or two while there. That isn't asking too much, is it?

    wait that timeout thing is bs. If anything I only agree on that "mandatory timeouts" aka lets get paid more by sponsors and ads were very unnecessary at some points. We got in between quarter breaks and half time break. No need for bs timeouts outside of those called by coaches

    I don't know how serious Summer League is, but that last highlight showed an intense game. Every Summer game should have that much energy.
    Why bring logic to a discussion?
  • GeoG2GeoG2 I came for the culo Joined: Posts: 11,871 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Summer League is very serious. Undrafted guys trying to get jobs, other guys playing with chip on their shoulders.

    People said a lot of shit about Lonzo from the first bad game, he's been showing his ass ever since.

    Lonzo needs a midrange game and to lock that 3 ball Down on the offensive end. Once he does that and improved his 1-on-1 defense he is going to be a monster. I think he is averaging 15 11 6 this year. Which is really good.

    The only good thing about the ice cube old man league is seeing Abdul Rahim(sp) who unlike Kaep was actually blackballed from his league for not standing for the national anthem and unlike Kaep he was actually good.

    I mean..... wrong Abdul... but there is evidence Kaep was actually blackballed.... Seattle and NY orgs said as much. QB lead a team to the super bowl and deep playoff runs but he's garbage and can't get a backup job.. got it.

    And the Knicks spent all their exception... on a guy they didn't even need too.... I mean...

    OKC signed that trash Roberson for 30 mil for 3 years. In today's NBA, his skill set is obsolete.

    A wing that can defend PGs, SGs, SFs and small ball PFs.

    Yep. Obsolete.

    What game was he playing D in because I must've missed it lol? Point to some games he playing D in. Regardless, you need to score in today's NBA. There's not like he has all Summer to work on his goddamn jump shot. He can even hire a shooting coach, it's beyond stupid why a "shooting guard" can't shoot (not even a damn free throw). At least Shawn Marion' s ugly shit went in.

    Relative to what players have been getting the last 2 off seasons, 3 years/$30 million for Roberson isn't too bad. It's a bit pricey but not terrible.

    Roberson was named All-Defensive second team this season. Literally all he does EVERY game is play defense. You would have to be blind af to not see it.

    Also, guys like Tony Allen have gone whole careers playing d without having a good shot. What difference does it make when Westbrook and PG are taking all the shots anyway.

    The guy is a complete crutch on OKC. Tony Allen can at least shoot free throws. In big games when they actually played someone good, his ass was getting balled on.

    Not quite. Pacers offered PG for Klay, and it was Warriors that said no.

    They should of never traded Cousins. Him and Fox could of amounted to something.

    Knicks trying to kill trade talks and beg Melo for forgiveness, because they're the fucking Knicks.

    They're not "satisfied" with offers for a 33 year old iso scorer. Really?
  • Plaid_UnicornPlaid_Unicorn Camron should have won an Oscar for Paid in Full Joined: Posts: 9,811
    They don't be want to take on salary.

    Melo can still give them 22 and 6... there is no immediate "need" to trade Melo.

    You're assuming that Melo would actually try hard and give them 22 ppg. Vince infamously averaged 15 ppg on 41% before being traded to the Nets and averaging 27 ppg the same year.

    This is what happens when a bridge is burned.

    Fultz is way....way......way to high... I'm good with top 5 though. Only other major gripe would be Turner over Embiid.

    Some other minor changes I would make but overall a good list of the under 25 guys.

    Kuzma is taking somebody's minutes, this guy is something else. He shoots 3's, rebounds, blocks shots, him and Josh Hart were absolutely huge steals in this draft.

    Fuck man, tonight 24/4/2. I dunno if Randle is even a sure thing now with this guy playing like this.
