The age is a factor. Also Luka's game may age better than Giannis so I changed my mind ha


The NBA is about ready to make Luka the official "King" of the NBA. Mavs are about to get serious. Funny thing about Luka's game...he's like that old codger down at the YMCA...the guy is slow as Christmas...but NOBODY can stop him from doing whatever he wants to do on the court.

Impossible for Luka to "lose a step" with age...because he doesn't really have one to lose. Just a tad behind Joker mentally. Almost as good as Joker at making EVERYBODY on his team...BETTER. He's about to be anointed the new "King", of the NBA.

FYI, it's Jalen Williams that he has that high, not Jaylin.

I'm not just being a grammar nazi, they actually also have a player named Jaylin Williams on their team and he isn't very good

Yea, I guess I'll begrudgingly fix it now that you're the 2nd one to mention it.

I didn't bother to check as I figured everyone would know which dude I was talking about lol.

I will also add that there is no way that I would rank Jalen Williams ahead of Chet, even though I think he's really good. Chet is essentially a unicorn, could be one of if not the best rim protector in the league in the future, as well as a guy who can shoot 40% from 3, and create his own shot off of the dribble.

This is a good example of the 2 part plan I mentioned in the Trade Deadline thread

Trade Val/Dyson for Murray, and punt on backup center rest of this season.

In the offseason, offer up BI for Mobley, potential lineup of:

Murray
CJ
Trey/Herb
Zion
Mobley



Though not sure how you salary match on BI for Mobley

Simmons must have fat fingered an extra 3, he meant 3rd.
