Also you can be a selfish type of player but not be a cancer to the team. It is a personality thing that is spilling onto the court. Like I said when multiple teammates are coming at you then who does it point back to? I would love to hear the talks as they are watching game tape. These things are obvious to me.

Russell Westbrook = aggressive almost to the point where he gets into it with players and coaches at times. You have to live with it though dude is a top 10 player no fights or scuffle though

Lance = Role player, obvious aggressive stat chaser average talent for his position gets into scuffles with teammates, over dribbler etc. etc. I can go on on. He thinks he is better than what he really is. I will give him credit though he is a good rebounder though.

Shots taken doesn't indicate cancer nor do shots made lol. Team interaction does indicate cancer behavior to the team. Like I said this is not the first time hearing of anything along these lines with him. The guy is a stat chaser, me type of player, he routinely checks the scorers tables for how many assists or rebounds I have. He is the equivalent of a diva WR in the NFL.

T.O. was a cancer in the locker room and put up numbers as well. You didn't hear a peep from him while things were going good but once they don't then you hear all this type of things. It is very similar to Lance. I am saying this guy is not the T.O. in terms of talent but the actions are similar. It leads to nothing but dividing the locker room. Again the common denominator is Lance.

Gets into something with Hill,
Gets into something with Turner,
Hibbert calls someone selfish on the team who is he talking about lol.
Bird says something along the lines that he is chasing stats.

Haha again you are looking at the numbers and saying he is doing this and that. The dude is a selfish player and a stat chaser for the purpose of getting paid it is obvious watching the games. I guess you just look at his stats and so oh he is not a cancer lol. I will give him his credit for being a good rebounder though but he is a bad type of aggressive talent.

It sounds like you don't know what cancer means man. The cancer stuff is what happens in the locker room behind closed doors and spills out on the floor. Watch his behavior with his teammates man it is so obvious. Then listen to what his teammates say and listen and watch the scuffles he gets into. He spends some timeouts/bench time sitting away from his teammates almost close to where Bird sits in the playoffs.

I am not giving Vogel a pass I am saying they over achieved first half of the year but they really didn't play a hard schedule. Anyone that is not a team first and me first =cancer.

The selfish dudes in this locker room = Lance this is obvious from watching their games.

No JGB,

Indy also played the easiest or one of the easiest schedules in the first half of the season. Lance is the type of teammate out for himself and then gets into altercations with said teammates. The teammate thing is the type of thing that divides locker room hence cancer. He is also a player that over dribbles repeatedly on attack mode and is a stat chaser for $. Things are not as good as they seem even when you are winning. The truth comes out when things start getting bad. Vogel is stuck in no man's land Turner is not good enough to supplant Lance but Lance will not be there long term. So at this point he is rolling with whatever he has.

Bird will make his decision and let Lance walk IMO because you can't have players on your team getting into it multiple times with teammates. He is not that good.

Like I said multiple players on the team have aired Lance out he doesn't get along with multiple players had an altercation with multiple players. If that isn't a cancer then what is.

Vogel can cure mentally weak players he can try but this is something they will have to get fixed with more experience.

Yeah but depends what you can get for Rondo. What team is a PG away from being real contenders that has something Celtics would want. In my head I think Houston but they don't have anything to give. No ones giving up a top 5 pick in this year but it will probably take at least that to get Rondo. Better off letting him come to you.
Posted Thursday April 24, 2014, About: And it's no shock to Stephenson he sparked a fight
Haha the Jazz are desperate at SG/SF if they don't . They reportedly didn't offer Heyward an extension, he wanted like 10+million a year. There is a chance he walks unless he comes to the realization that he aint getting that type of money. Lance probably gets a 7-8 mill per year deal and I think the Jazz could be one of those teams.
Posted Thursday April 24, 2014, About: UConn's Napier dreams of wearing green
Celtics have the 17th pick and I agree. I am not sure he goes that high but we will see. They need a backup pg regardless and he can score. Bradley is a backup SG in the size of a PG but can defend either one pretty good. So with that go head and draft him and groom him to be the Rondo replacement
Posted Thursday April 24, 2014, About: UConn's Napier dreams of wearing green
That is is a long shot Napier drops due to the depth at PG but he is not going in the second round. I think he will be one of those players that everyone says "Why did we pass on Napier?". He will be a sixth man on a team that will be a Pg to come in and get points. He is essentially Kemba Walker but a better jumper.

He is definitely is coaching for his job. Hollins is up next if Vogel can't get it done.
Posted Thursday April 24, 2014, About: And it's no shock to Stephenson he sparked a fight
I agree with everything except the blame game. Vogel will get the blame because the coaches always get the blame, but the players are mentally weak and shouldn't be airing everything out to the media. Lance is a cancer and thinks he is way better than he is. He has problems with multiple teammates which means he is the problem. Lance is out of there and will be playing on a team like the Jazz

KI is not Iverson though. That strategy might work if we had a true defensive team but we have nothing. Iverson as a SG was just as good as a passer as KI while scoring more points per game. Kyrie is a horrible defender. I think KI is a good talent but I would not trade a top 3 pick for him to pair with MCW who actually excels with the ball in his hands. PG is the easiest position to fill in the NBA. Pair MCW with some shooters and watch the assists pile up.
I need to look up my stats I told people on here he would avg. 16pts 6ass 5 rebounds and 2 steals.

He ends the season with 16.7ppg 6.3ass and 6.2reb 1.9stl. Wait until he gets just an average jumper. I am expecting similar numbers next year but more efficiency as he can't shoot well but nevertheless a triple double threat.

Yes the bottom of the barrel teams and non NY and LA teams and most smaller market teams have to build through the draft.

Philly wants no parts of Asik at this point. We have our picks we good. We are building through the draft
Posted Wednesday April 23, 2014, About: 'Melo wants to be wooed (like, Howard wooed)
I think it will be hard. It is like this I believe the cap hit is supposed to be 8.3 Million but the team must pay them 15 million. Who wants to pay Lin 15 million, shoot who wants to pay him 8 million? They actually need to move them for players that will not count towards the cap if they want Melo. Their most valuable trade asset is probably Parsons but he counts only peanuts. Someone may bite on Asik though.
Posted Wednesday April 23, 2014, About: 'Melo wants to be wooed (like, Howard wooed)
It was a good move short term to steal talent but you have to trade prior to the 3rd year when the 15million kicks in. Now they have Harden and Howard they can't make a real move without moving both of those guys. Their GM was thinking outside the box to get him.
Posted Wednesday April 23, 2014, About: 'Melo wants to be wooed (like, Howard wooed)
Melo wants to be wooed like he was in Syracuse lol. Dude just weigh your options and then choose Chicago Houston or one more year in NYC. Houston would have to move Asik and Lin. I want to see how they find a way to move Lin at 15million next year
Posted Wednesday April 23, 2014, About: Cavs maxing Irving and clearing millions?
JGB,

Don't be wishing that bad trade onto my team not happening. We need a SF scorer and a SG that can shoot. MCW can rebound pass defend and is 6-7" wait until he gets just an average shot and improves his strength. He will be ahead of most Pg's in the league. Also we stand to have a tall lineup that will cause matchup problems in the back court if we just get a 6-5 or so SG.
Posted Wednesday April 23, 2014, About: Pacers teammates engaged in a fistfight
Personally I don't keep my ear to the Indiana lockerroom I never heard such a thing. The Pacers are not that popular of a team but I never heard that before.

http://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nba/pacers/2014/02/21/vogel-im-probably- not-the-coach-if-not-for-danny-granger/5708657/

Granger was a mentor to George and he also suggested to Bird to draft George as he did pre-work out drills with him.
Posted Wednesday April 23, 2014, About: Pacers teammates engaged in a fistfight
I will say this if Turner is fighting you then you are the problem man. Turner was never an issue in Philly. He played behind Iggy got put in the dog house by Collins and still just played. Lance is the problem point blank. This confirms my thought that things are much worse than they appear. I also notices that Lance sometimes doesn't sit with teammates he goes way over to the side where Bird sits and was standing there. He seems like a cancer, Bird knows it and they will part way with him in the off-season I would think.

Shaq sees this guy who is more athletic than him but not stronger than him and expects him to dominate average centers compared to what he played against in the 90's. I agree Shaq was a freaking 330lb wrecking ball that could literally overpower almost and everyone. Dwight is not Shaq not even close he is good for this era but not in Shaq's class.
Posted Tuesday April 22, 2014, About: Woodson's next job
He can improve some in the post though. Sometimes he would wait too long trying to figure out what move to go to. The Dream was working on that with him. Some of it is mental thinking instead of instinctively playing.
