quote:Sorry, I know i'm in the minority, but Rivers definitely does not have this ball handling ability that people love to talk about.
He has the best handle on the team.
Austin is already improving as a Basketball player. He maybe our best preimeter denfener. He has the best handle on the team. once he continues to improve his jumper, left had & free throw shooting. he could be a 20/8 guy in this league.
Greivis will be a backup PG in 2 years
quote:From Golden State's perspective, I understand why they'd want Gordon's finishing ability. Almost every playoff game comes down to the last few minutes, with the ball in a perimeter players' hands. Its why i didnt like the Rudy Gay trade for Memphis. He's overpaid, but he's one of the best late game scorers in the league and he's already hit 2 or 3 game winners for Toronto. Now they're leaning on Conley? Bayless?
That's interesting. They must be panicking a bit with injuries/losing streak.
$25million per year for a starting backcourt that has played in 101 games combined since last season? Seems like a reach to me. But if they want to get rid of a rookie controlled 6'7" shooter for an injury prone and mopey max player, I'm in.
Vasquez/Mason/Thompson/Anderson/Davis all offense lineup would be a treat to watch.

Then the Pelicans would be in the same position that GSW is in now; that there wouldn't be a player on the roster that can break down the defense in crunch time to create offense at the end of games, shot clocks, etc...

For the Hornets, it would be great in just about every way. You can put Thompson at the 2 or 3, opens up the draft for us, even more cap room... I'd be shocked if Golden State did it

We have an offseason and draft to find that guy. And thats IF we actually think we can be a playoff team next year.

I can understand that, but to me it's not that big of an issue. I just think Hero Ball is overrated. Much rather see teams run any sort of set than dribble out the clock, pull up J
Their numbers are almost identical, but one guy is younger, healthier, and makes $10 mllion less
