    LA may draw interest from FA’s but their batting average with them isn’t any better than the Knicks or Bulls.

    On the Lebron thing. Let's be real here and his retirement tour team will be where ever Bronnie is playing.

    It’s only two games but every single bench piece they got in the deadline deals appear to be big upgrades

    There are 3 teams that you can say are winning the east and it doesn't feel like a hot take imo.

    Boston is the 4th team

    Lets see if Kyrie plays on Tuesday night. Boston has owned Philly this year. Good test if he plays.

    I don't feel like JJ gets enough credit as being one of the greatest shooters ever. Sure, he isn't going to dribble his way into creating and draining his own contested pull up 3s but give that man any space at all and its buckets for days.

    i can't keep up with your spin. is this a bad thing because you still think he's good and thus will mean more wins? or is it a good thing?

    Good job bringing in Lin and signing Dedmon. Good to have those guys you flip for future assets when you're tanking

    It’s a good thing because Trae gets more minutes and we have no legit backup so we get more L’s.

    Lin did his job, mentored Trae for a few months, and now gets the opportunity to join a contender.

    i wonder how/if the league will curtail the buyout market. it's silly that someone as good as lin can be acquired by Toronto for free. i'd argue that he's a bigger pickup than Gasol.

    Allow HS players into the draft and expand the G league so that late 1st and 2nds are more valuable, so that teams dont hold those guys for nothing and then cut them loose

    maybe. i think this has more to do with teams trying to maintain good relationships with players/agents. i have to imagine at least one or two teams offered something for lin at the deadline. perhaps ATL didn't want to take back a contract or something in order to make the trade happen, though.

    Is Lin better than VanVleet? No harm in the added depth for Toronto either way, but seems like he could have picked a spot with a better certainty for PT.
