| Pelicans Talk|| re: Predict how the Pels finish december - PKTiger on 12/19/14 at 6:51 pm|
All of them are winnable. OKC might be without Durant. SA will probably be without Kawhi for both games. The team will slip up one night or get off to a slow start, but all of the games are for the taking.
We'll definitely win in Chicago. No way AD loses his first NBA game in the United ...

He'll easily get the max. 4 years/$60M will look like a bargain for him when the cap rises. ...

[quote]But if this gets them a healthy Rondo for 4 years, it's a great deal. [/quote]
Where do you think Rondo is in the hierarchy of the league's point guards? Of all point guards, I think his value is most tied to his teammates' talent, so it's tough to judge him because he's been on bad teams. ...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: mavs in serious talks for Rondo - PKTiger on 12/18/14 at 5:23 pm|
Tyson is playing really good basketball this year. With him, though, there's always the concern for injury. The Mavs have to be a bit scared of what they do if he gets hurt. ...

I will say, Rondo/Nowitzki pick and pops are gonna suck to guard. ...

[quote]That's a STEAL for Mark Cuban.[/quote]
Is it though? No matter what Rondo and his team say, he could still walk on July 1.
Also, they may regret giving up Wright. Not much quality depth behind Chandler and Nowitzki now. ...

[quote]there were other options but Jrue was the best at the time. I'm not talking about the Tyreke signing.[/quote]
I like Jrue, especially his defensive abilities. The price was still a bit steep for a guy with one All-Star appearance, don't you think?...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Remember how Brandon Jennings and 2 lottery picks is better than Jrue? - PKTiger on 12/18/14 at 12:36 pm|
That doesn't absolve him of blame though. It seemed like he got the players he targeted last summer. He didn't swing and miss then move on to plan B.
So that means he put together a roster of ill-fitting parts with little to no shooting. If he had to "win now," there were still other avenues av...

2006 was the last time it was like this. Nash, Dirk, Lebron and Kobe. Kobe and his 35 ppg probably should've won, but his team was only the 7 seed. Nash won because of how they team stayed together even with Stoudemire out.
Edit: 2011 should've been like this, but the media hijacked the award a...

Exactly. Pick a spot on the floor and throw him an alley-oop. That would be more fun. ...

I disagree. AFA wasn't a basketball player. He was a guy who could use his athleticism to make a couple plays. MKG is a basketball player who just happens to have a glaring hole in his game - he can't shoot. ...

It's your typical three-step travel. The stutter-step at the 3pt line doesn't count; he doesn't have the ball in his hands. He gathers and gains control just inside the arc and takes three steps. ...

I feel safe saying Monty blew this one. It was still a game until the Rivers/Salmons/Babbitt/Anderson/Withey lineup was out there for 6 minutes together.
That lineup shouldn't play maybe 6 minutes a month together, let alone in one stretch. ...
| More Sports Board|| re: Is there any more ignored rule in all of sports than the travel in the NBA? - PKTiger on 11/20/14 at 8:18 pm|
Refs let travel go the same way they let some "by the book" fouls go. If the offended team isn't hurt by the violation, it's not necessary to call it. So if someone subtly moves their pivot foot, but they're in the same spot, you don't need to call it.
And people like to bitch about traveling an...
