re: who once said they'd trade Biyombo for Ryno? - TigerinATL
[quote]Perhaps Bioyombo would have taken a longer contract if one had been offered.[/quote] Hindsight says at the very least you offer him what we gave Ajinca, and I bet he'd have taken $20 million guaranteed. I understand why they wanted the more proven player, but it still pisses me off that A...

re: analyzing the "3 & D-ness" of NBA draft wings - TigerinATL
I haven't actually waded through player histories to document this, but it seems to me that most D only wings take years, like well into their 2nd contract to develop competent offense. That's just too long for most fan bases to wait which makes me think drafting a D only wing is a waste. Am I wro...

Yeah, Biyombo is, for now at least, a cheaper version of Asik, which is why some posters advocated going after him rather than resigning Asik....

re: Netflix-Miramax deal ends June 1st - TigerinATL
NetFlix decided what direction they were going in when they didn't renew the deal with Starz 5 years ago. They decided to become the next HBO instead of something new and disruptive. I'm not saying they definitely won't renew this deal, because HBO does offer a selection of movies too, but I would...

re: Can you install kodi on Roku? - TigerinATL
Plex is about as close as I've found. The app for Roku is free so if you have a free PC that can act as a media server you can get Plex up and running for free. They have what's called unsupported apps that gives you access to apps like Let Me Watch This which appears to be like a lot of the downl...

re: Dunn is out. Real question is Valentine or Buddy Love? - TigerinATL
I think that depends on if Tier 2 ends at 6 or 7. They are doing what Boston is hoping to do, trade in their collection of assets. If Tier 2 ends at 6 there's value in getting that player. Like in hindsight we should have traded up for Drummond. ...

re: Dunn is out. Real question is Valentine or Buddy Love? - TigerinATL
It's a bad strategy to draft for fit because of your coach, but that's where we are. Tyreke averaged 6.4 assists in his first 10 games under Gentry and they still had that public disagreement on pass first mentality. I just don't see how Buddy is more than a role player here, and that seems like a...

Steals per 40 last year: Dunn 3.0 Hield 1.3 Valentine 1.3 Blocks per 40 last year: Dunn 0.7 Hield 0.6 Valentine 0.3 I don't think anyone should take that DRtg to mean Valentine is a good defender. But it does suggest he can be covered....
