    Everything was going to plan. Miami was supposed to be the #9 seed behind Brooklyn and Charlotte while being better than Boston, Indiana, Detroit, Orlando, Philly, and New York. In the West the Heat were supposed to be better than...
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    I agree with the sentiment on Thompson. You'd think that a player who has some shooting ability, athleticism, and size could develop into a solid role player with all the time he's getting....
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    Apparently Minnesota is trying to trade Thad to the Nets for Perkins. Doesn't make sense to me at all....
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    What a good trade for OKC. Funny how they're paying Brook Lopez what they didn't want to pay James Harden....
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    Most likely 2019. Memphis owes a 1st rounder to Denver that they lost likely won't convey till 2017....
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    Draft protections on the MEM-BOS trade: 2017: 1-10 2018: 1-12 2019: 1-8 2020: 1-6 2021: unprotected Not a bad trade for Boston I guess. They most likely won't receive the pick until 2019. The unprotected aspect is intriguing considering that...

    It's called PLAYER DEVELOPMENT...
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    I don't think he's great either but he should have enough sense to not gamble on what the state of his franchise will be 5 years down the line. I hope the pick is protected in 2019 and Boston has...
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    I don't think that's a fair assessment of Hinkie. He looks for players with some ability, gets assessments from his coaching staff, and releases them if he doesn't think they're worth keeping around. It's not like he still has Malcolm...
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    But he did draft Dario Saric. Athleticism isn't one of Dario's stregnths. He also passed on Giannis and LaVine and apparently was the one behind Houston's decision to draft Royce White. Still too small of a sample size to know...
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    Do you have a source on the Memphis pick being unprotected? Hollinger is supposed to be a smart guy. It should be top 5 protected at the least. I can't imagine him gambling on his team 5 years from now...
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    Jeff Green to Memphis. Most likely for a 2019 1st rounder. Hopefully there are some protections. Brandon Wright to Phoenix. Most likely for Minnesota's 2017 and 2018 2nd round picks. To recap, 1st rounders Boston owns from 2015 to 2019:...
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    The possibility of getting an additional 2nd round pick wasn't worth the potential PR hit, IMO. But I don't think the Sixers care. Hinkie knew Kerilenko wouldn't report. So either he flips him at the deadline or he doesn't have...
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    They basically traded Dion Waiters and the Memphis 1st rounder (which probably won't be conveyed in another 4 years even if Gasol leaves) for Shumpert, Mosgov, and JR Smith. I don't think these trades are terrible. But these are the...
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    Their plan is to tank until they get that franchise player they're satisfied with. It's simple. Then maybe they go out and make trades or use their cap space to get veterans to compliment their franchise player....
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    I know. But I don't think you can win a title without an elite big man. I would probably have to disagree about a wing player being more important. Do you think a team with Anthony Davis as their best...
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    Butler and Kwahi won't make it far in free agency and even if they do they'll be 10 other teams trying offering them max deals. Reggie Jackson, Arron Aflalo and Draymond Green seem like more attainable free agents. I would...
  • Commented on Happy New Year!
    Something that you mentioned earlier: "Just a thought, but has the NBA changed to the point where getting a good big man isn't the best route to building a contender? " I was thinking the same thing the other day...

    Yea, it all comes down to Embiid. Other than John Wall or Anthony Davis, I don't think I would trade Embiid for any player taken in the last 5 drafts. But that's only because I'm optimistic on his long term...
  • Commented on Sterling's Methods Live On In Philly
    Lost by 17. But the game was close for most of the 4th quarter. That 17 point lead was built up in the last 3 minutes or so. MCW- 2 for 20, 6 assists to 6 turnovers. Holy Crap. Hopefully...
  • Commented on Sterling's Methods Live On In Philly
    Wow. I guess that means Joel Freeland, Meyers Leeonard, and Thomas Robinson. I wonder is LMA, Lopez, or Kaman would play if they were going up against a better team....
  • Commented on Sterling's Methods Live On In Philly
    They've also lost by 15+ points in 5 of the 11 games they've played so far in the month of December. That might have something to do with it as well. Anyway, I was impressed with their defensive performance against...
  • Commented on Sterling's Methods Live On In Philly
    Dwayne Wade looked terrible out there. I can see why Lebron left. It must be frustrating watching Wade chuck up a long 2 knowing that he's going to miss it and kill the drive. Jerami Grant looks like he's going...

    I bet it was for Carl Landry and Jason Thompson. It doesn't really do much for Detroit since they weren't saving on years or much on cap space....
  • Commented on Sterling's Methods Live On In Philly
    So after this season his contract is going to take up $5.4 million of Detroit's cap space until the summer of 2020....

    Do you really think the medical staff gave the ok on the Bynum deal? 24 year old franchise centers just don't get acquired for lottery protected picks and some guy who couldn't get off the bench. I think Harris OK'd...
  • Commented on Sterling's Methods Live On In Philly
    Dallas' 1st round pick to Boston is 1-3 and 15-30 protected for 2015. It's 1-7 protected from 2016 to 2020. This gives Boston 5 additional 1st round picks in the next 3 drafts. They also have Philly's 2nd rounder this...

    Brandon Wright has been averaging 8.8 points on 68% shooting and 1.6 blocks in only 18 mpg. He's an underrated player and is expected to get a good contract next summer. He's young, Boston needed a center, and I guess...

    "Nik Rocks!" I don't think Malone got the message. I don't know what to make of Randavive. He seems really out of touch. Malone was someone I wanted the Sixers to hire a few years ago. Too bad the Sixers...
  • Commented on Sterling's Methods Live On In Philly
    According to bball-ref, $9.7 million is their combined salary for this year and all of them except for Kerilenko was acquired prior to this season. I know they have a salary floor but it seems like they could've gotten more...
