re: Former Pels/NOLA ballaz still in the NBA that you like and hate - Mr. West on 7/11/15 at 9:44 am
[quote] David West, while clutch as anybody (I'll defend that point to the death), is a fake tough guy/punk.[/quote] He boxes and slaps Germans in the face. I'm not sure how he'd be considered fake but I guess that's more opinion. [quote] He bailed on NOLA when we needed him most and hid behin...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: MLE SF Discussion Thread - Mr. West on 6/7/15 at 10:03 am
Most likely guys are probably Dunleavy Jr. and Gerald Green. Chicago has Snell and McDermott coming up that play similarly to Dunleavy so he will probably not be a high priority while Green had fallen out of favor in Phoenix towards the end of the season. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Need to get rid of Asik and make a run at Deandre Jordan - Mr. West on 6/7/15 at 9:45 am
If Deandre showed interest in us then we'd be foolish not to at least explore getting the space for him. But he more than likely will not and it certainly wouldn't be worth it to lose Asik+Gordon and the MLE for a chance at him. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Eric Gordon Appreciation Thread Via...Jimmy Smith??? - Mr. West on 3/18/15 at 9:47 am
If you can consistently shoot 45% from 3 and get a few assists per game that isn't a one dimensional player. That's a valuable cog in the current style of NBA offense....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Eric Gordon increasing workload, could be closing in on a possible return - Mr. West on 12/29/14 at 5:25 pm
Jason Smith tried to play through the same injury and couldn't do it for long. He was praised. I'm not the biggest Gordon supporter but it shows that if you have a perception of someone you will stick to it I suppose....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Pelicans inquired about Jammer Nelson - Mr. West on 7/3/14 at 8:14 am
He could probably replicate 75% of what Gordon gives us at about a fifth the price. Could be great value if he's looking more for a defined role, play time and a bit more money over a ring....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: When was the last time a team bought a 1st round pick? - Mr. West on 5/28/14 at 9:17 pm
It can still be done, however not many teams are sellers. There is a cap of about 2 or 3 million you can spend on draft picks to keep the NY's of the league from buying ten or so and teams value young talent over that amount generally. A second rounder could be realistically bought, especially consi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Would you prefer Asik or Monroe next to AD? - Mr. West on 5/24/14 at 10:24 am
Monroe would be like getting ice cream after a 3 course meal. Never a bad thing, but a luxury. He'd be our 4th or 3rd option on offense. Asik would be like getting a burger after not eating in 24 hours. He wouldn't be the answer to all our defensive problems but he'd certainly help much more than...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
