re: In all seriousness, this all thanks to AD right? - ThePistol
I’ve been on board with a lot of what Crewz has been saying but I can’t get behind the way Klutch handled the AD trade demand. I won’t go into what the motives were other than getting AD out (partly because I am self aware enough to know my hatred of Lebron clouds my judgement). However, they misman...

re: The Historical Argument for Keeping AD - ThePistol
I’m assuming as I read Crewz’s posts on AD opting in for the additional year, that he is meaning this happens in a timely fashion. If AD refuses to sign before the season, then to me that is him refusing and you trade him. I don’t think there is any way Griffin allows this situation to linger into c...

re: Keeping AD makes us a better team - ThePistol
Except now you have ZION WILLIAMSON! So this team would have AD, Jrue, and Zion. Then you fill around. You call our current roster a 35 win team. While yes, we won that many games this season we also shut AD down in February, shut jrue down two weeks earlier and were a second round playoff team the...

re: And ESPN still thinks the Laker haul would be better than a Knicks trade - ThePistol
Blood clot is a HUGE concern with Ingram. That is something you can't rehab. There is no way to know how his body will react going forward. Ask Chris Bosh and Miami. Lonzo Ball has had real health concerns with his knee and ankle as well. Kuzma is good but his ceiling is not super high. The Kni...

re: Warriors talking shite about Chris Paul in the Locker Room afterwards - ThePistol
There is obviously a difference of opinion on what a better basketball player means to you. The goal of the game is to win and contribute to winning when it matters. The NBA is an 82 game season in which guys simply do not play hard all the time. Because of this, I don’t value regular season results...

re: Warriors talking shite about Chris Paul in the Locker Room afterwards - ThePistol
The fact of the matter is that Paul has never had a definitive moment in the playoffs. He has come up short EVERY SINGLE TIME. In basketball, as the pg and leader, that is simply unacceptable. He couldn’t get past SA in NOLA, couldn’t get past Houston in LA, and couldn’t get past GS minus Durant las...

re: Fully bought in Supermaxed AD -or- The Knicks Package - ThePistol
I would say going forward it is: Giannis KD Harden Steph AD Lebron and Kawhi are right there. AD was still top 5 when he decided to tank the season. Would it make you feel better if I said "top 7" instead of "top 5"...

re: Fully bought in Supermaxed AD -or- The Knicks Package - ThePistol
I take the bought in AD every day all day. Again, AD is entering his prime and he IS a top 5 player. He isn't a POTENTIAL top 5 player. The more I think about it, the more I buy into the culture and direction of an organization are so much more important than most think. When AD was bought in a ...

re: Amin Elhassan on the In The NO podcast - ThePistol
I’m okay with Gentry staying in for this season because of what you have brought up. Him and Griffin seem to be on the same page. But, I do think it is part of Griffin’s job to identify a needle mover for head coach. The three guys viewed as the top GMs in the league have done this. Meyers had J...

re: Amin Elhassan on the In The NO podcast - ThePistol
I think we are all smart enough to realize that some people are better at their jobs than others. Gentry has shown over a long period of time that he is not going to make a significant impact on wins and losses as a head coach. I agree with what people have said in that coaching is much more than x’...

re: AD and Jrue working out together... - ThePistol
I agree. AD would have a lot of work to do to win back over the fan base and the organization. Again, I still feel this is the longest of longshots, but if he did sign the supermax it would be fairly easy for him to do so. The NBA is so fluid. Things change so quickly. Again, a year ago at this ...

re: AD and Jrue working out together... - ThePistol
Everyone seems to forget what they thought of AD one year ago today. At that point, he had been the single best player in the league for the last two months of the season and he had just led a sweep of Portland, a team everyone in here is touting. Heading into the offseason at this time last year, t...

re: AD and Jrue working out together... - ThePistol
I still think it’s a long shot, but why wouldn’t people want him back? If he comes back, he will have signed the extension and will be all in. I’ll take his talent all day and let Griffin figure out the surrounding pieces. ...

re: I am glad that I was wrong about CWW... - ThePistol
Because if you understood you wouldn’t have supported the suspension. I don’t know how far LSU would have made it with Wade. I said LSU robbed it’s coach, players, and fans of a CHANCE of a special conclusion to the season. I do know that LSU is the ONLY school to suspend their coach in this mat...

re: I am glad that I was wrong about CWW... - ThePistol
The problem wasn’t what you believed to be true. The problem was that you simply don’t understand college basketball. This is a systemic issue that involves the top schools in the country all the way down to your lower level mid majors. Players, more importantly, handlers and families, are “taken ca...

re: Naz Reid just declared - ThePistol
Question for all the people who hate the decision: can y’all please give me a list of all the players in the NCAA who are 6’10” 250lbs, shoot the ball well from 3, and have good enough feet to not get killed in the pick n roll game defensively? The fact that he isn’t 20 years old yet is an add...

re: Want Alleva gone stop donations. - ThePistol
I donated enough to keep my tickets but they got the minimal donation from me as far as my TAF contribution. It was much lower than it has been for the last 10 years. I know it won't do much but I feel it is me doing my part for the poor leadership being shown in our athletic dept and our universi...

re: UPDATE 4/2/19: Pels set to interview Harris, Langdon and Gersson this week - ThePistol
I don’t agree with anything you said other than NBA players are progressive. How is Becky Hammon a Sean McVay type hire? Is she regarded as an offensive genius with a revolutionary system? Does she remember every detail of every game she has been a part of? Has she changed anything about the ...

re: How can anyone defend the conversations from the tapes? - ThePistol
Is that picture of the ostrich with its head in the sand representative of our administration? Because if so, you nailed it. They knew Wade was on the tapes in October. The only way they couldn’t see this coming was if they put their head in the sand. LSU and Will Wade should be on the same side in...
