re: Justin Verrier out at ESPN - corndeaux
I get the cost aspect, but I do think something is lost when you aren't embedded with a team day in, day out. you can't replicate access/trust nor overstate the ability to be in the right place at the right time. like TBW tweeted- only 1 regular traveler, who is employed by the team, is a pro...

re: Jake Madison: Gentry and Demps speaking as if Jrue is gone - corndeaux
i get why the Pels would do this like in the other thread, i dont get why both Denver and the Wolves do this. neither team does something that really makes any sense, unless the goal is to get Rubio and Gallo to the Pels. besides, Gallo is reportedly opting out. ...

[quote]he situations are very different as Minny is asset rich and not looking to burn any, but I see no reason for them to go fast.[/quote] i agree. i guess i just dont see how holding onto Rubio, for the time being at least, is them going fast. brining the key guys back is just letting them mar...

[quote]I get why you say that, but there were multiple games where AD/DC dropped 50+ and they still lost. It just often felt like they needed a 3rd scorer.[/quote] i agree, but i would say not scorer but they need a better creator and some more guys who can create off reversals/post outlets. the...

re: 5 Potential Offseason Paths w/o Jrue - corndeaux
right. they have two top 10 talents in the league in the frontcourt. everything needs to be about maximizing that pairing on both ends. find guys who understand it's the Davis/Boogie show and are willing/able to fit in around their games. the talk of Bledsoe/Dragic has never made much sense to m...

re: Jake Madison: Gentry and Demps speaking as if Jrue is gone - corndeaux
right. i'm more confused by Crewz- my posts on Holiday are literally arguing that it's complicated. that there are any number of reasons he might want to leave, that he might have changed his mind, and there is no evidence that he is being disrespectful to the organization it is interes...

re: Jake Madison: Gentry and Demps speaking as if Jrue is gone - corndeaux
agreed. checking in w/ players is just smart management. no evidence of this, but if he's being duplicitous, that is a stain on him and his agent. one small caveat- things can change. perhaps he doesn't like his role w/ Cousins on board. no possible way to know that move was coming or how it...

[quote]If it turns out that Demps and CO. were this convinced from the onset that retaining Jrue would be difficult, all I can say is Ryan Anderson 2.0 then. [/quote] i'm inclined to give them more of a pass on Holiday than Anderson and Gordon. Holiday was playing pretty well going into the A...

re: Who Stays, Who Goes? - corndeaux
something like Jason Smith's Wizards deal (3/$16) seems like a reasonable comp the question for the Pels is how comfortable are they with him as backup 4? or do they want a more traditional frontcourt player as 3rd big? if they want a bigger body/better rebounder not sure if they should bring Cun...

re: Who Stays, Who Goes? - corndeaux
not too sure about playing Cunningham w/ both Cousins/Davis. don't think hes quick enough on defense but putting him at the 4 next to one of them makes sense. he had some of the best +/- numbers of the team- particularly when they were going small w/ Davis at the 5 exclusively. To me, he'...

[quote]not something that should be done like a hobby in your spare time. [/quote] right. question is does Benson see it that way? based on Loomis's mid season presser, where he said his involvement with the team as the top Basketball Ops guy was overblown, Benson doesn't give a shit...
