re: Offseason Trade Possibility - corndeaux
I have a hard time believing the Mavs won't try to keep Chandler. Dirk only has so many years left and he took a massive pay cut last summer. It would be a hell of a gamble. Renouncing 2 of your top 6, both under 30, for just a [b]chance[/b] at a 33 year old 5 is crazy on the surface. If they mi...

re: Pelicans to offer Anthony Davis five-year deal that could approach $140M - corndeaux
[quote] (I've seen talk of going to $89 then $108)[/quote] Both Aldridge and Lowe have mentioned that. They also both say it's very real that the cap will drop to under $100M the year after a second spike. There was a morning tip about this a month ago...

re: Offseason Trade Possibility - corndeaux
Ajinca is the definition of replacement player. I doubt his post up numbers hold up and he will always have trouble fouling. If they bring him back for more than one year, Demps is crazy. I was confused why Mason never had a keep Asik, Cole, renounce Ajinca option in that article. You listed a coupl...

re: Pelicans to offer Anthony Davis five-year deal that could approach $140M - corndeaux
[quote]inflationary cap environment he'll probably want one[/quote] Another big thing is the looming CBA opt out which could kill the 17/18 season and dramatically alter (for good or bad) the landscape. Yet another reason Davis will accept the extension soon after it's offered. Locking in that mu...

re: Offseason Trade Possibility - corndeaux
You're not actually going small if the opponent can keep their center in the game and match him up v Thompson. He's a better finisher than Asik (who isn't :badabing:) but he's nowhere near the defensive rebounder or defender Asik is. I'd rather pay Asik $13M/year than Thompson. If the Warriors se...

re: Offseason Trade Possibility - corndeaux
Thompson? Really? He is a nice player. He can crash the offensive glass and rebound, but has no real game on offense and isn't a rim protector. Plus he's a RFA looking for a payday (turned down ~$13M/year this fall) and is represented by LeBrons agency. He isn't an Asik replacement and he wil...

re: Some gems so far from Jimmy Smith's season ending chat today - corndeaux
I don't think Smith is necessarily wrong. Evans is better w/r/t vision, penetration, and durability. Holiday makes less dumb decisions, but they're still there. Holiday is the better player because he'll play defense. But Evans is better on offense IMO. [quote]his assists usually come to play...

[quote]One problem is we have too many one dimensional players.[/quote] Yup. They get exposed badly in the playoffs. Not certain how far this group can go. They likely need a better player to be Davis's Robin. But, I would love to see a better (or easier for The players to understand/execute)...

re: So Aminu and Rivers had game saving playoff games today - corndeaux
That's just not true. Aminu/Anderson/Evans played well together last year. Add Holiday/Q and Davis to that trio and you have an intriguing 5 man unit. ETA: I agree with SP. Aminu/Monty isn't a good mix. Not that Aminu is some great player, but he just didn't seem to fit the system here. It h...

re: Pelicans to offer Anthony Davis five-year deal that could approach $140M - corndeaux
Yeah. I really don't think it is. Basically, people either don't understand that his max extension will kick in 16/17 (the year the cap explodes) or they are anticipating the cap jumping from $89M to $108 in 2017- which may very well happen. If it's the former, they are just misinformed. If it's ...

re: Would you trade Anthony Davis for Curry? - corndeaux
I agree completely. He's already flashing more moves than last season and is largely unguardable at 22. With more refinement/experience, the sky is the limit. But he's still reliant on guys getting him the ball, which I [b]think[/b] was the point about perimeter v post....

[quote]idiots[/quote] The tweets in the other thread are not from Stein, just randoms replying to him. To answer the question; no they are mistaken. His extension will be signed this summer and kick in 16/17 like Kyrie's max will kick in next season....

re: Would you trade Anthony Davis for Curry? - corndeaux
He is more perimeter than post. Again, he isn't a post up player like the bigs of old. But he's a catch and shoot perimeter player with a limited, for now at least, dribble game. He's similar to Anderson. That's very different from a primary/secondary ball handler. ...

re: Would you trade Anthony Davis for Curry? - corndeaux
While clearly a troll OP, darryljames and nostradamus make interesting points about the "big over small" truism. The game is different now- much more of a perimeter game. Who is making the decisions down the stretch for the Pelicans? The guy with the ball. Whom do many complain about? The guy wi...

They've done better than I expected this series. Tonight, they just don't have the energy. But overall, yes. The scheme needs reworking and they need some some better defenders....

re: Doug Collins "Asik can't be such a negative" - corndeaux
I think he's injured/nursing an injury. Plus he's closing in on 30. He's a good, albeit limited, player, but just doesn't fit in this series. Someone tweeted it the other night- the Pelicans would benefit the most from being able to combine two players into one with Asik and Anderson....
