[quote]All fair points. And I don't really disagree too much. I just dont think its insane to question the trade.[/quote]
Which is what separates you from Simmons. I also take no issue with questioning the trade. Simmons acts like this was an obvious slam dunk in the other direction from the st...

[quote]Who said anything about Noel shooting? [/quote]
Come on now, you implied Noel did have an offensive game, and used as your example AD saying Cal never let him shoot. As I said, no one wants Noel shooting.
Your example is way off course, AD was shooting a 3, and was only joking while te...

[quote]He played in a system at Kentucky, one that did not ask of him to make offensive moves. College is structured, you do know this, right? There is so much hands on from the coaches in terms of pace of play.
Go back to that international friendly game against Puerto Rico where AD coverts a f...

[quote]No need to resort to belittling me. I believe I said it wasnt outlandish to state that the trade has been a loss so far. Not exactly a ringing endorsement of Simmons. The post above about him making no sense on tanking is spot on. [/quote]

[quote]The thing he completely ignores is the massive injuries. That is self serving and disingenuous.
But he's got a decent point in terms of questioning the trade.
Forget Noel. What if they had taken Burke or MCW? Obviously neither is as good as Holiday, and no guarantee they make it. But ...

But I would rather trade Gordon...I love Reke dude can't shoot but I love him

I'll say this. I think Tabor is better than all mentioned here. Long, tall and physical. It's going to suck to have to play him every year now. Not that I thought Florida wouldn't have great CB's one way or another....

[quote]Our roster has talent, but it is very haphazard and redundant. The success of his build kind of depends on Gordon either returning to his old form or getting traded. Then the trade will be scrutinized.
I think his moves have been generally positive, but Gordon may be the albatross around ...

You don't win games with trades for bench players. Dell missed on the one deal that wouldn't have sett this team back 3 years

[quote]Late first. Top 20-protected to be precise. None of those players stayed after those contracts expired or were amnestied, so it's possible you get the 25th pick this year and you absolutely do not get Anthony Davis. It's really not that attractive.[/quote]

We could certainly go on and on.

[quote]Scola, Martin, and Dragic were all up for a new contract come 2012, I believe. None would have been guaranteed to be here. Odom had said he wouldn't come here, and either way, we see where he was at now.

[quote]The rebranding had absolutely nothing to do with Demps or Williams. As far as a plan, I need to see proof. Having Davis fall in your laps is not a "plan" per se. I have to see where they go with Gordon, Holiday and Evans as my hope is that we are in transition in this grand plan and that was ...

| Pelicans Talk|| re: Greg Monroe - Jon1798 on 12/10/13 at 12:16 pm|
Monroe will be a restricted free agent and will sure to look for a maximum extension. That's why he's mentioned as possibly being traded so much. His contract is about to outweigh his play....
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Greg Monroe - Jon1798 on 12/10/13 at 9:40 am|
Greg Monroe is a "good" player, but he plays zero defense and is about to get a max contract. If we could move Gordon's contract alone for him, maybe simply because it would be small for big. But otherwise I see no way it makes sense....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: How do we finish with the Number 1 class??? - Jon1798 on 12/2/13 at 1:20 pm|
If you go just based on rivals, I think LSU signs 4 5-stars in Fournette, Adoree, Dupre, and Tony Brown. D'Haquille would make 5 if he switched. Obviously Adoree would be the one to worry about the most.
I see Bama signing 4 in C-Rob, Hand, Humphrey and Scarbrough. I expect Bo to hold.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why isn't Jeremy Hill getting the ball more?? - Jon1798 on 11/25/13 at 10:00 am|
Jeremy Hill is our best back. He had a 16 yard run and a 9 yard run in the first series of the second half, and then didn't get another carry for the rest of the game. A pretty big game that was only a two score difference. Something happened.
I thought it was injury, but he came in on a passi...

He also cut back right into an unblocked DT earlier in the game. I'm honestly not sure what's going through his head half the time. The play tells you where to go. He should probably see how that works out for him once in a while....

Oden's been waiting for the Heat to raise their offer. Hence finally putting out there a deadline. He is not passing up $2 million dollars more just to play for the Heat. He hasn't been doing all of this ridiculous rehab to play for charity....
