If he is worth around 150M. Could he put up 100M and finance 400M (500M team purchase)? I'm guessing some owners have financed purchases and they weren't all done with cash. Didn't Benson get backed by the state and finance most of the purchase of the Saints?...

[quote]He's the only one capable of playing the 2 on both ends. They were really good when he and Dragic were both in the lineup. It's hard to get even value in a trade and can you can't let a talent like his walk. [/quote]
Dragic can easily play SG. Now that they have Thomas and Ennis, he would...

I don't get it. It's a dumb contract and they don't need him (loaded with small guards). I would have S&T him in a heartbeat. He is a 8M a year player, at most, and the 5th year is just crazy. I just don't know what NBA GMs are thinking. They can't trade him for a year, so they have to pray he can a...

Yeah, I don't get it either. Scott was horrible in Cleveland. Ma...

And you shouldn't. They are obviously focused on 2015. They might tank anyway (they owe the Suns their 1st unless it is a top 5). But if Bryant is healthy, that team will be competitive.. ...

[quote]Wow. The Kings and Lakers rate better? [/quote]
It mainly comes from the coaching grade. The Lakers were given a 7.0 and the Kings a 6.5. If the Pelicans got a 7.0, they would be over both of those teams. So I guess they are saying that the Pelicans have more talent, but coaching is costin...

I saw it on Friday. It was alright. Pretty much a straight forward detective story. It is set in the 90's, so kind of a period piece. I can't really recommend it for a theater movie, but I enjoyed it. There just wasn't anything else really out right now.

It's all subjective, but the those teams are deeper so there grades are more balanced. Let's say the Nuggets. Their grades were..

[quote]thanks for the write up. i agree with coaching, but having PG at 6 is rough[/quote]
Yeah, I agree. If Holiday is healthy I think that would at least put them as above average. Although having a 2nd round rookie as the back-up is really risky. I guess they could have projected Rivers as the...

I got my Lindy's annual last week and wanted to share what it had to say about the Pelicans. I could not find a link online, so I'll just type out most of it (it's going to be long). I like Lindy's because they rate each position (from 5.0 to 10.0) then rank each team by their numerical value. Here ...
