re: Bledsoe is getting upset... - corndeaux
[quote]I think part of why Demps wanted special treatment from the league to keep Crawford on his current deal was he plans to make a trade sooner rather than later that either lets him keep Crawford or he needs Crawford’s voidable deal as filler.[/quote] Objection, assumes facts not in evidence...

re: Boogie's shot selection still a problem - corndeaux
[quote]he's perfectly capable of playing that way[/quote] i think he's got another gear too. but, if he ever reaches it, i doubt it will happen with this team. there's so little on the roster and he has to do so much, that it's like Sacramento all over again. maybe Rondo comes back and can be ...

re: Boogie's shot selection still a problem - corndeaux
right. guess a better way to put it would be I wish he thought "pass first" more. same problem there too- who's giving it back to him in a better spot? who (other than Davis) is getting a better shot than Boogie?...

[quote]AD plays within himself. Cousins doesn't.[/quote] that's always been one of the problems with him. are there dumb plays? of course. i have no idea why you expect Cousins to be perfect. he's always been messy and emotional. there are definitely ways for him to be better, but he put up 34/10...

re: A Lesson in Value - corndeaux
[quote]I "expect" 18/5 type of numbers while being good on defense[/quote] but that's the entire problem- he's only been able to put up that tyoe of ppg when he's been given the ball to dominate and the green light v 2nd units in 15/16. thats why the Klay comp is so absurd to me. Klay can p...

[quote]It's better to have Jrue at that price because you can't just let him go and magically sign anyone else to the same $126mil deal. I don't think people realize.[/quote] it's a fair point. and i get why they needed to keep him. but they're paying Holiday all that money to be something he'...

re: A Lesson in Value - corndeaux
[quote]I say Jrue is definitely above 15, 4 are debatable, and there are 10 PGs clearly ahead of him[/quote] this is sort of a weird discussion. who cares about his ranking as a PG? the Pels dont want him as lead ball handler and moved him to SG. many, many fans spent the off-season talking a...

[quote]I don't give a shite what AD wants at this point. That's not how anyone would build a team in todays NBA. If AD was getting us to the playoffs every year, and was a true superstar, then i'd listen to him, but he's not at this point, so he can shut the hell up and do what he's told. [/quote] ...

[quote]It may only go as far as Cousins' control over his emotions will take them[/quote] yeah. that is the issue. ideally, i would let him walk too and go full rebuild. they would definitely need to ask for Lakers/Kings pick from Boston. building a team around Brown+Tatum + pick would be pret...

re: Would you rather Eric Gordon over Jrue Holiday (even $$$) - corndeaux
the problem with not getting Cousins (or more expensive 5) is that Davis doesn't want to play center at all, it seems. Baynes at $4M isn't playing more than token minutes....that leaves Davis spending more time at the 5, which appears to be a no go. and that severely limits how you can build a te...

re: After one game...I see exactly how opposing teams will defend the Pels... - corndeaux
ball needs to keep moving. no sticking. they can't overcome stagnation because they dont have an A list creator. they have to compensate with ball and man movement from all 5 guys. problem is their two best players aren't great at ball movement. they like to hold and pound. Holiday is the same wa...

re: Will AD ever take that next step? - corndeaux
lol the best 3pt shooter on the team is the center. the best playmaker on the team is the center (Rondo doesnt change that for me). with Rondo out, the best handle on the team is the center. he is also a high volume scorer. and, of course, the best scorer on the team is the pf. its 2017. th...

[quote]AD at age 21 was the #3 PF in DRPM LINK KAT at 21 was dead last in DRPM at center LINK The year before AD was middle of the pack at 27.

re: How good will we do this year? - corndeaux
Young, talented players get better. Took Davis a couple seasons to be competent on defense too. Again, OKC won 50 games with younger players in a better West. Here's what I see: a Pels fan thinks all the Pels will play better together, but doesn't think that Wolves can have internal improvem...

[quote]Minnesota is going to take time to put it together. They're too young and have too many new faces. [/quote] i dont think they win 50 games and they have some fit questions. but they are going to be in the playoffs. the youth thing is overblown. OKC won 50 in Durant's 3rd year. Towns is...
