    i think you guys will miss him. Hit a ton of clutch and momentum changing/halting 3s in the playoffs, mostly 2021 but still.

    game 7 in Philly Simmons did a really good job on Trae and it was Kevin hunting Maxey over and over that pushed us over the top.

    Get rid of five players who were largely unplayable the further they progressed in the playoffs and what will more than likely be a very late first round pick for a legit player? Seems like a great trade to me.

    needs some bench bigs though. Al and Timelord don't need to be playing major regular season minutes. Hopefully we find some good ones cheap

    Smart, Brown, Tatum, Horford, Robert Williams
    Pritchard, White, Brogdon, Gallo, Grant Williams

    Still got a bunch of TPE money from what I am reading. Would be a good time to swing Pritchard and something for a legitimate 4/5 to get a bit more roster balance. Unless they want to go back to the Tatum at the 4 lineup since they can bring Gallo off the bench to play the 4 some.

    Brogdon is good. I think this is a no-brainer move for Boston because the upside is very high. But this seems like a common reaction here and around Twitter, and I'm somewhat confused as to why the Jalen Brunson deal has been so crushed by people while Boston acquiring Brogdon and his 3 years at $22.5 AAV is viewed as a steal. Brunson is almost 4 years younger and isn't hurt every year.

    If Brogdon was a FA this summer and someone gave him that kind of money, would we really be talking about it like it's a great thing?

    I would have also not liked Boston to get Jalen Brunson, even more so. I also think Brunson's value isn't all that far off the contract he signed but for the Knicks to be the one to give it to him to go ahead and still (likely) miss the playoffs is the funny part.

    my comment was just "damn I don't want Boston to get the back court floor general they need" and especially for basically nothing.

    I generally have immense disdain for Windhorst as he carries a sense of disgust for the league he covers and the people he interacts with not named Lebron or Rich Paul, but I’ve been cackling at that segment all day

    I think people view the trade itself and the players involved as the steal, not the contract. If anything, I think a lot of people praising this don't even know what Brogdon's contract is in the first place.

    Brunson's deal is being shit on because it's the Knicks and he's being positioned (unfairly or not) as the potential savior of the franchise whereas Brogdon is seen as the missing piece of a title team. If somehow Boston pulled a sign and trade and acquired Brunson on the contract he just signed, people would still fawn over it because it'd still be seen as the "final piece" and also because half the NBA media are Boston dick suckers

    What I find so confusing on the clip, is the headline on the screen being Durant. I kept figuring out how what is Utah going to do, mattered to Durant.

    Then I used context clues and put Mitchell, Kyrie, and Durant on the Lakers for a Lightly protected 2030 1st and it made sense.

    This all makes sense and I tend to think that's what it is. I guess my post was mainly about the Indiana side of it that some people were criticizing. Paying Brogdon (who turns 30 in December) $22.5M the next three years does nothing for the Pacers. Especially when they've already got Haliburton and now Mathurin on the roster. If this is the best they could do, you take the pick and you move on.
