    Except in the NBA a defender is not allowed to sit in the paint longer than 3 seconds.

    "Injuries and injury risks are an inevitable component of this judgment. That proved especially painful this season, as Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins, and John Wall—three fixtures of the Top 100—did not make the cut specifically as a result of their long-term injuries."

    Ok makes more sense. Although even if Boogie could play this season I'm not sure he is top 100.

    When was Iggy supposed to be bought out? Word from when he was first traded was that he wasn't going to be bought out.

    Iggy is just using Shams to try to force Memphis's hand. They absolutely should not buy him out if they think he has trade value, which he does.

    From Iggy's perspective, if Shams is willing to prostitute himself out to this extent then you might as well use it. He has no leverage in this situation so if he can manufacture some pressure then good for him.

    So no

    Iggy is a HOFer for being a bench player on the most dominant team in NBA? One big finals? I just dont see it.

    Okay maybe not but it's possible he does or at least will at the trade deadline.

    also why would you want a player that doesnt want to be there on your team? Would only hurt team chemistry imo

    Well, the longer you keep Iggy on the team, the more he’d be willing to give up in a buyout or the more likely a trade partner will make an offer. Either way, the smart play is waiting

  47. That was a really poorly coached 4th quarter. Found some stuff that was working pretty consistently in the third, then just repeatedly went back to a bunch of one on one and pick and roll stuff to challenge the best shot blocker in the world at the rim.

    The roster selection was shit from the beginning. Pop and Co really tried to act like they were smarter than everyone and left a lot of more talented players at home.
