Posted Friday August 10, 2012, About: Why Miles spurned L.A., Houston for Cleveland
From a Cavs perspective they didn't even actively go after any of the upper tier free agents, I'd say it's pretty obvious they aren't even attempting to be an 8th seed type team this year. They're looking to let the young guys play and bank another lottery pick
Posted Thursday August 02, 2012, About: GM dials up heat on Warriors
I think they'll be a fun team to watch, but I think it's you who's overrating your own guys a tad. Bogut at his best couldn't carry a team to be an upper tier easter conference team so I don't see how he's going to do so in the west. He's a good center given the state of the position, but also not a "transformative" talent.

They're one of the biggest mystery teams in the league because really no one knows. If Bogut/Curry stay healthy, if Thompson/Barnes prove to be good or better starting caliber players then they should be good. But those are 4 big ifs that have to come true

maybe not, but as a regular season team they're tough and that's what determines who gets into the playoffs so I see them as a safe in
Posted Thursday August 02, 2012, About: Doc: Blame me for Allen's departure
It's not a Boston thing, every team in the league would trade absolutely anyone if the price/situation was right. This is a business,not personal relationships. You make it seem like it's Junior High ball or something
Posted Thursday August 02, 2012, About: Doc: Blame me for Allen's departure
I get that Allen helped bring a ring to Boston, but does it really matter to them that he left? At this point Terry is a better player so they replaced him before he even left (not to mention having Bradley there as well). The only reason it's a story is because he left for Miami. He'll look better there because he'll have to do nothing but catch and shoot, and Terry is capable of doing more of what Boston needs given their roster so it's a win for both.
Posted Thursday August 02, 2012, About: Look west for Magic's new blueprint
It's easy to point to those teams as a model of success, but if you miss on a couple of lottery picks, or draft high in the wrong year you easily get stuck in an endless rebuild. Luck is the key, if you end up drafting high in a Bogut or Wall year the model doesn't work near as well as walking into a Duncan/Durant.

Not to mention this organization has lucked into drafting #1 for those transformational stars twice now and couldn't do anything with it.

I disagree with your view of Denver, that team may lack a star but they're deeper than any other in the league with good rotation quality players. I actually like Dallas off-season and think they'll be better than last year.

Barnes/Thompson will have to be big time players and Curry/Bogut have to be healthy this year for GS to even have a chance to jump Denver/Dal...History isn't on their side

Portland? You must have an awful lot of faith in their rookies ability to lift the team
Posted Wednesday August 01, 2012, About: Rush's role on the rise
I've always liked Rush as an off the bench guy rather than a starter, he offers good size at sg and floor spacing (career 41% from 3). If (big if) GS manages to stay healthy they could actually be a pretty exciting team to watch this year
Posted Wednesday August 01, 2012, About: Lakers the frontrunner for Miles
Miles is really nothing special, he offers good size and solid athleticism but he's never been able to develop a reliable jump shot and is an awful rebounder...All in all decent rotation guy who won't see much of the floor come playoff time
Posted Wednesday July 25, 2012, About: T-Wolves target Kirilenko in three-team trade
I think it's obvious they are not high on D. Williams, maybe they can move him for a good Sg.

The thing I don't understand is why move a 1st round pick for Budinger when you don't even deem him a starting quality sf (as shown by their pursuit of first Batum and now AK)? Wes Johnson has been bad, but is getting rid of him really worth giving up a 1st round pick to get nothing but cap space in return? This team isn't good enough to just waste assets like they do

This pretty much sums it up
Posted Wednesday July 25, 2012, About: T-Wolves target Kirilenko in three-team trade
That was in response to the guy talking about the Hornets roster not the TWolves.

Although to be fair the Wolves Sf/Sg's SUCKED last year so since they have good players at Pg/Pf/C may as well try to find something worthwhile on the wing so I don't blame them for stockpiling guys there.
Posted Wednesday July 25, 2012, About: Linsanity rattled Jeremy Lin
Would you prefer Flip Murray as an example when he started a season putting up like 23 per game? I'm just saying it's happened before, it's to be determined if he can maintain play for an entire season. Personally I think he'd be best as a 6th man scorer off the bench
Posted Wednesday July 25, 2012, About: Linsanity rattled Jeremy Lin
Fact is everyone in the NBA can play. It's to be determined yet if he can maintain a certain level of play. 35 points may be impressive but guys like Rodrigue Beaubois have went for 40 before, consistancy is the name of the game here.
Posted Wednesday July 25, 2012, About: Linsanity rattled Jeremy Lin
Yea he sure didn't seem to care about money at all while he watched a depleted Knicks team play inthe playoffs but refused to help out because he was only "85 percent"...Realistically the kid was protecting his free agency value, while it may have been the smart play i'll never like him from a competitive stand point
Posted Wednesday July 25, 2012, About: T-Wolves target Kirilenko in three-team trade
You can't help but like the roster they're building, but fact is they're relying on two 19 year olds to play starting roles which just doesn't end well in terms of W's.
Posted Tuesday July 24, 2012, About: Only way Cuban can lure Howard and Paul
well that's nice, but isn't really an answer just a generalization. They brought in a 24 yr old sg/pg to replace Kidd/Terry for a small infusion of youth.

Dirk obviously would make sense for any team in the league because he's still a top flight pf. I just sruggle to see teams who could offer a deal that makes mutual sense. Maybe Denver, Houston, and Sacramento?
Posted Tuesday July 24, 2012, About: Only way Cuban can lure Howard and Paul
My question is for you and whomever else that proposes trading him is the right thing...for who or what? Why just trade the face of your franchise, when you still have playoff talent around him, just for giggles?
Posted Tuesday July 24, 2012, About: Only way Cuban can lure Howard and Paul
After missing out on DWill they still had a solid enough recovery off season that if Dirk stays healthy they'll still be a 6-8 seed. I like the pieces they added to get younger in the back court (having to play Jason Kidd 36mpg now is never a good thing) and should be improved on offense, the key will be if they can maintain a good enough defense.

It'd be a massive surprise if teams that cherish good chemistry/their system (like SA/OKC) would bring in a player like Blatche
