    I think so as well. Not all teams are created equal....
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    I wouldn't pay anything to a never-was....
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Looks like the Wolves don't need Kahn to keep making dumb decisions....
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    He was useful in Washington this past season, and I suppose because when teams don't get their guy in free-agency they often overpay for the consolation prize....
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Btw, he's still waiting for someone to challenge him on that bet. His money has been sitting in escrow for quite some time now....
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Would his primary purpose for creating the account be to have friendly discussions and debates centered around basketball?...
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Hopefully with a much higher BBIQ than Dalembert....
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    If he joins them (and I doubt he will) they'll have four #1 draft picks on the team...crazy....
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    I would say they matter equally - without the system in place the potential star can't develop well enough to meet his potential. Without the potential star, the system doesn't move the needle enough to get you to the finals....
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    "Again, you're just repeating the same mantra as the herd:" So because it comes from "the herd" does this invalidate the point? Depending on your definition of success one could argue that plenty of teams tanked (either intentionally or not),...
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Looking at examples such as this makes me realize that tanking in the west would appear to be even a more sound strategy than tanking in the east. I highly doubt the Kings make the playoffs this year, but will...
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    And yet, going the Detroit way (interesting you bring them up as they're the only example that really fits your argument) or the San Antonio way (although I consider them to be a bit of an anomaly and chalk it...
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Why was Kahn perceived as a loon, though? Certainly not for drafting Kevin Love. Perhaps partially because he was unable to field a contender around Kevin Love? Will Hinkie be able to field a winning team once/if these prospects pan...
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Is there proof of the opposite? Say we fielded a team capable of winning 45-48 games. Would we be able to lure guys like Kevin Love? I find this less likely as the past has shown. Would we have the...
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    I couldn't agree more with what you said. When I think of the other option - acquiring vets to field a "competitive team" that will likely end up being mediocre, I cringe. If Philadelphia was a free agent destination like...
  • Commented on Avery Bradley on the Radar?
    Disclaimer: I don't have a Hinkie shrine like some people do, but I do believe their strategy is sound as long as it leads to developing and keeping a championship-caliber team. Speaking of which, the idea that the sixers will...
  • Commented on Avery Bradley on the Radar?
    Wow if that's true I think I would be surprised, but not entirely as they are the Cavs, afterall. This is exactly the type of thing desperate teams will do. I predict a furious battle for the fourth seed between...
  • Commented on Avery Bradley on the Radar?
    If I recall, last summer the Pistons acquired Josh Smith in free agency and Brandon Jennings in a sign and trade. The Cavs acquired Luol Deng and Bynum. This signals teams trying to be good and get to the playoffs....
  • Commented on Avery Bradley on the Radar?
    Isn't it all faith-based? Is there a guaranteed, proven method to winning a championship? 1.) I think you answered your own question here, but further evidence can be seen with potential trades that franchises attempted to make during their losing...
  • Commented on Avery Bradley on the Radar?
    A decent offer, and one that adds more credence to the idea that Stauskas was their man(and went for BPA once he was taken)....
  • Commented on Avery Bradley on the Radar?
    Of course there were - It was nothing more than a hypothetical. The point was if our future core is ready to contend at a younger age than recent, older teams I mentioned than we can contend for much longer....
  • Commented on Avery Bradley on the Radar?
    Still, the point remains that they sucked first for a number of years before they got better. Albeit, unintentionally tanking, which has more to do with the fact that their FO is more like the Bobcats than the Spurs. When...
  • Commented on Avery Bradley on the Radar?
    What would you say is that team's upside? Maybe, possibly an ECF appearance in the next year or two depending on what happens with Miami this off-season? How many years did they flat-out suck before this past season? If I'm...
  • Commented on Avery Bradley on the Radar?
    Here's a more fun bet - who thinks Evan Turner is in the league past his 28th birthday?...
  • Commented on Avery Bradley on the Radar?
    If they're targeting Avery Bradley in free agency, what's to say they're not going to target others? That's the only thing I can think of and hence why I used the conditional in my sentence....
  • Commented on Avery Bradley on the Radar?
    I don't think he alone moves the needle all that much...not with this roster. But he does fit in with their long-term plans. If he does contribute to "too many wins" they can always make other moves to become worse...
  • Commented on Two More Years...Two More Years...
    What are the chances that we ever see that lineup? If Embiid becomes a franchise player, two of the other four develop into key starters on a contender, and we sign another star I'd be satisfied. However, even if only...
  • Commented on Draft Day 2014
    I don't understand how the #10 pick was supposed to make them enjoyable this year. A rookie who supposedly has NBA range from three doesn't improve their win total all that much....
  • Commented on Draft Day 2014
    McBuckets...
  • Commented on Draft Day 2014
    So the #10 pick was supposed to put us over the top? We got our potential franchise guy at #3. I don't think the plan is to keep sucking balls for three more years....
