He's a troll.
I refuse to believe anyone on earth is actually that stupid when it comes to NBA roster moves. Literally every move he thinks we should make is dumping our best players for undisputed scrubs.[/quote]
That's like the 4th time I've been called a troll. Now it's spreadin...

Apollo Creed was the greatest boxer. He was probably the greatest boxer of all time. Before Rocky no one had never even gone the distance with him. 48 straight knockouts and no loses (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_Creed). That is unheard of. He absolutely destroyed Rocky, but just couldn't fin...

[quote]Why would we give up Ryno and a 1st round pick to pick up a raw SF in Grant. That is trade rape, this is a team that is lacking talent outside of maybe 3 guys, 1 of which isn't even playing yet, and Grant can't even do much. That is idiotic as hell. [quote]

| Pelicans Talk|| re: How would you change the team? - brmark70816 on 12/11/14 at 1:36 pm|
Moves I would make, off the top of my head..
1. Trade E. Gordon, R. Anderson and 2018 1st round pick (top 6 protection) to the 76ers for J. Richardson and J. Grant.
Buy out/release Richardson. Grant is a talented but very raw SF. But he is depth and a project. The Sixers get a good asset to ...

I hate to look it up to be sure. But that is Doc Evans, who is Tyreke's manager (and big brother). So you have a player's manager taking shots at the ...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Omer Asik ain't pretty but - brmark70816 on 12/7/14 at 8:58 pm|
Honest question for you: Do you think that Asik being the 22nd highest paid center in the NBA is good value based on his production?
I don't know. I guess it is. I know he is a good defender. Obviously he is going to put up great rebound numbers. I can't say that the team ...

Okafor also was making max money, you keep throwing around Asik's balloon payment like it's his cap figure and it isn't. Asik was not getting a deal for 3/$45 3 years ago, he'd get 3/$24 just like he got, but the nature of the poison pill contract changed the distribution of the dollars. As...

Yeah, I know. I have acknowledged it many times. Doesn't matter. I still get it thrown back at me. I was just trying to find a way to make our best two players fit and play together. I think it is something that the coach is still trying to figure out.. ...

So am I wrong on that or misremembering how it went down? Wasn't everybody pissed at him for like 3 seasons? Is it something we want to repeat?

Let's be honest, you don't care about my opinion or anything I have said. I covered every point you made over and over in this thread. You have it locked in your mind that I am wrong, so you just wanted to pile on, join your boys and called m...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Our bench has promise with the 2 new additions - brmark70816 on 12/7/14 at 11:19 am|
It was pretty shocking to watch the bench play so well. They turned everything around. We just had no answers for their starters. Paul ran a clinic on Holiday and Evans. Just like Griffin could not be stopped by Davis or Asik. For such a blow out loss, I actually thought we had some good things come...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Omer Asik ain't pretty but - brmark70816 on 12/7/14 at 11:13 am|
The bench was pretty good last night. Maybe it was just one of those nights, where everything was falling. But it didn't look that bad. It was mainly Anderson/Ajincia/Cunningham frontcourt when they made their run. Babbit held his own with the starters. We just had no answer for Paul/Griffin and our...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: IYO what has been the worst roster move the past few seasons? - brmark70816 on 12/7/14 at 3:27 am|
Yeah i forgot about that but the cap will go up a lot by then so we'll still have plenty of space.
If say asik(or another C) gets signed for 9.5-10 mil and +10 mil to ADs contract we'll be at 45-50 mil with a likely 75+ mil cap. [/quote]
I think Davis will get a bit more than that....

No. I'm not. Most people that watch basketball have no idea who Asik is. They think he is white stiff and probably from Russia. He doesn't have a huge name or reputation, no matter his grand ...
