    Previous reports have suggested the China thing was much bigger, right? Or did I make that up?

    all things considered, a 10% decrease in revenue in this environment is pretty amazing. Go Silver go.

    its ok. It’s a loser move by a cheap bastard owner. Fertitta is killing the basketball value of that team more and more every day.

    Kevin Knox sucks. Other Kentucky players don't. Seems reasonable that they'd trade the former while still pursuing the latter. :idk:

    At the end of all of this, we'll look back at all of the nonsense that went on with this family and think, "wow, that was a lot of fuss about a bunch of 'okay' players"

    The sad thing is, by all accounts, LaMelo has a ton of talent. Only thing holding him back from being the clear cut #1 guy in this draft is he has so far to go to realize that talent because he's developed so many awful habits the last 4-5 years due to his dad.

    It’s borderline if Lonzo is even OK at this point. LiAngelo is trash. LaMelo will probably be at best OK since he is thus far refusing to change up his shot mechanics.

    Pre-bubble Lonzo was a very useful player, and i tend to think pre-bubble play is more true to life than bubble play. Except with Dort.

    Pre-bubble Lonzo is kind of an ideal point guard for a team with a great wing scorer. Patrick Beverley has made a living being that guy on good teams for 7 years now, and Lonzo's got more talent than him.

    Hot take: id take Lonzo next to Trae any day and think Lonzo would be really good in Dallas

    He seems like a below average player to me. Perhaps his abysmal bubble play is clouding my judgement though

    His improved mechanics and some hot streaks belie the fact that his overall efficiency barely improved over the prior year and his production remained the same.

    To be a very useful player he has to improve his handle so he can work the p’n’r, and his finishing so he can attack in the half court. His biggest skill is his passing, but that isn’t worth much if he can only unleash it in transition. A savant-level playmaker who’s relegated to shooting wide open ‘meh’ corner threes isn’t much to be excited about.

    I don't think that's how they're going to play. Can't see KD being up to fast breaking all game long, and the Rockets were pretty slow pace wise.

    Not sure it's that big of a deal in the end, but from D'Antoni's perspective I wouldn't have done that unless I was getting paid HC type money. He's 69 years old and next season looks like it's going to be a disaster (at least to start). I'd sit that one out.

    Not to sound like a dick but the only teams really affected by this are Lakers and Heat right? And to a lesser extent Nuggets and Celtics. Everyone else would have had like 4+ months off. And for half the league it would be 9 months!

    Yeah I think you just have to live with the extra load management that will come with "penalizing" the deep playoff teams even moreso than the NBA finalists normally are.

    It's certainly not ideal from those teams perspectives and it's not great from a league perspective if you want the Lakers on TV a lot in the beginning of the year, but it's probably for the best overall.

    From a rest standpoint, yes.

    You're also dealing with a draft and FA that are going to happen a month or less away from the start of the regular season (and less than 2 weeks before training camp) in the middle of a pandemic, and I can certainly understand why the players would push against that. Especially when you're condensing a 72-game season into a smaller window with all that comes along with that.

    Players are going to end up agreeing to the December thing unless LeBron doesn't let them because they aren't giving up that much money for the reasons we're talking about. But the NBA has generated more goodwill at this point than any sports league in the world over the last 5-7 years, and this has a chance to blow up in their faces if they go this route and the injuries start to pile up. Not sure what the alternatives are if the TV partners are giving them these parameters, but the league is going to get the criticism.
