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.
Philly fans and experts alike trying to justify that him and Horford would be net positive over Butler was something
Fuck yourself Rockets
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.
so whens the harden to philly trade going down?
Have also read that Milwaukee and Indiana are discussing an Oladipo deal
Did you hear about this?
It won’t happen but if it does knowing you’ll be miserable
What the hell does it cost Boston to make that move?
Probably not as much as you think because Rudy is supermax eligible in a year
Hayward and 14 right?
Yeah, I guess the fear of losing him for nothing makes this work + having to pay him.
They been trying to trade Kevin Knox so that doesn’t even make sense
Kevin Knox sucks. Other Kentucky players don't. Seems reasonable that they'd trade the former while still pursuing the latter.
Shocked I tell you, shocked
It's almost as if no one advised him.
Trying to tank his draft stock so he doesn’t end up in Minnesota.
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.
What's your definition of "OK"?
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.
no clue what to make of this
I want to hear from Kyrie.
So Nash, Amare, D’Antoni. Is Udoka a former 7 seconds or less Sun and I just don’t remember it?
7 seconds or less offense means Kyrie shooting 50 shots a game. MUST WATCH TV
Is KD supposed to be healthy for the start?
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.
But how will Kyrie pound the air out of the ball in 7 seconds
Can I just dream please. We have a couple months till they play so I’m going to continue the dream
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.
As someone who just tore his Achilles 2 months ago, I hope so or there is no hope for me.
Damn. How'd that happen?
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.
Of course they are lmao
Playing (half-court) basketball
