re: Brandon Ingram Is the NBA’s Most Intriguing Rookie Extension Candidate (the ringer) - Baron on 9/19/19 at 8:29 pm
Can’t give him that now. Too many question marks with fit, development, and health. The Pels finally have a roster without an albatross contract limiting their ability to shape the team. No way they risk losing that after all of the careful moves to get here...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Brandon Ingram Is the NBA’s Most Intriguing Rookie Extension Candidate (the ringer) - Baron on 9/18/19 at 1:57 pm
cgrand is right. The Pels are going to have to make a decision on Ingram sooner than everyone else and they are already preparing. Im not sure how likely a mid season trade of Ingram really is. It’s hard to imagine a situation where Ingram is playing well enough to have a high trade value, specifica...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Little trouble understanding Lori Lightfoot’s tweet - Baron on 9/8/19 at 1:26 pm
Well no guns are manufactured in the State of Louisiana, so technically 100% of the guns recovered here come from outside the state. Also, isn’t Chicago basically on the boarder and extremely close to Wisconsin, Indiana, and Michigan? Wouldn’t that have something to do with it? Or does she think...

re: Dunc’d On podcast: Offseason Grades - Baron on 9/7/19 at 1:37 pm
The only thing I’m worried about is someone paying him in the weak FA class he will be joining. The only advantage we have is that there isn’t a ton of space available and that he’s restricted. I’ve seen some places rank him as the 3rd best FA next year behind Davis (who isn’t leaving LA) and Siakam...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Dunc’d On podcast: Offseason Grades - Baron on 9/6/19 at 7:15 pm
I’m not the biggest Ingram fan either. It’s not just fit with the system, but some of his analytic numbers and projections are not the best. But with his measurables and flashes, he is someone that they were absolutely right to take a flier on. He is by far the biggest question mark for this team ne...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Dunc’d On podcast: Offseason Grades - Baron on 9/6/19 at 11:10 am
Last week Nate Duncan and Danny Leroux did their offseason grades for the Western Conference teams on the Dunc’d On NBA Podcast. I know a lot of posters are already listeners, but if you haven’t heard the episode, here is the idea and cliffs. Each offseason Nate and Danny give each NBA team a gra...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote] I'm hesitant to give them the benefit of the doubt when they had the authority to do the right thing while waiting on the Feds.[/quote] Sure, that’s perfectly reasonable. I don’t envy Law Enforcement decision makers who have duties to both civilians and their own officers. It’s a tightro...

[quote]LCPD suspended him for 10 days. That's fricking laughable.[/quote] In their defense, it is my understanding that they knew that the Feds were investigating this before they suspended him and were helpful in the process. I think that short suspension has much more to do with protecting thems...

re: Rachel Nichols Interview with AD: Non-committal to Lakers past this year - Baron on 7/16/19 at 10:29 am
It’s to keep pressure and leverage on the Lakers. It’s not only about the money or making sure they are all-in. It’s getting a spot at the table and being a part of all of the coaching changes, FAs, and overall decision making. It’s getting your friends positions in the organization and letting your...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]We played so disciplined and organized compared to other teams it was barely fair.[/quote] Good observation, and the numbers back it up.

re: The Good and Bad From SL: Shot Selection - Baron on 7/15/19 at 12:45 pm
Now for the Bad: in the last two games, the shot selection wasn’t nearly as thoughtful. The Pelicans averaged 15 less points in the paint (41per) and only 13 points in transition (that’s including two overtime periods too!). In those two games, 16.6% of our shots came from between the paint and the ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
The Good and Bad From SL: Shot Selection - Baron on 7/15/19 at 12:45 pm
With the Summer League season done, and a soon to be offseason lull, now would be the perfect time to discuss some observations from the last few Summer League games. Individual play has been throughly examined, so I’d like to just focus on overall team play. Just a heads up, I am only referencing t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Morris and Noel fire Klutch - Baron on 7/14/19 at 9:19 pm
I understand that and I agree that it is unlikely, which is why I’ve tried to fact check it. I wouldn’t be surprised if he had some agreement that was just less than normal salary % for a higher than normal endorsement %, that seems possible. Not trying to start or spread rumors, just spitballing...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Potentially, but it’s not like this is the first time he’s done this same thing. I can’t help but think of Hanlon’s Razor: Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence. Another thing to consider, I’ve heard that RP takes either 0% of the players salary or very litt...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
