re: I'm behind Max or TJ whoever starts. Stop showing favortism. - irvchilichill1
Bestbank... That statement was funny as hell. Bc thats how half of fans would feel. We can reasonably assume first down will be a run. 2nd down may be as well if we picked up at least 2 yards. So, 3rd down will be a passing situation and God forbid its not a completion. All hell will break l...

re: Who is a lead assistant that would have you extremely excited? - irvchilichill1
None. Its ALWAYS about the HEAD COACH. Has anyone valued the asst coach more than the man that decides your playing time, value to a team, etc. more than anyone else...?? No... Don't get me wrong, asst coaches have some influence over a player's interactions/reactions to a HC decisions and run i...

re: Rorhbach speculates Harden to Pels in one of many scenarios - irvchilichill1
No need to even worry about this scenario. Aint happening. Dont think Griffin would want to have same issues that presented themselves with the arrival of Lebron. Harden wouldnt acclimate himself to a family oriented atmosphere that Griffin harps on. If you want 3/4's of the team at various st...

re: Rorhbach speculates Harden to Pels in one of many scenarios - irvchilichill1
It would work if you like giving up 125+ points a game. Do u think swapping an ALL-NBA defender for a defensive sieve would make us better defensively and not cause chemistry problems?? Playoffs is not the goal, winning championships is.... Harden is not a championship player. Period. He is th...

re: Rorhbach speculates Harden to Pels in one of many scenarios - irvchilichill1
No to Harden. He is too ball dominating for any team he is on to win a chip. Plus, this would relegate Ingram to the same issues he had with Lebron of standing in a corner and waiting for a kickout jumper, which he got better at last year, but his game is so much more than a spot-up shooter. In...

re: CP3 = a high profile coach - irvchilichill1
Yall crazy... He had a bounce back year in OKC and kudos to him salvaging an ugly exit from Houston, but given his enormous contract, his offensive personality, injury history, physical decline and most importantly, his exit demand which gave rise to players now bolting the minute they feel like it....

re: If healthy, would you sign Boogie? Why yes or no? - irvchilichill1
Firm NO!! When he skipped the playoff game against Blazers, allegedly bc of flying and the potential to complicate his recovery, only to to post himself in a jet on his way to Coachella was strike. Deathknell came when he said disparaging remarks and falsities about the contract negotiations and h...

re: Jalen rose sums up our year best - irvchilichill1
Both sides won in the trade, and thats ok. Different goals in mind when the trade was considered and effectuated. Lakers had immediate championship aspirations bc of Lebron and Pels needed to salvage a deteriorating situation with AD by getting in return-- max value, future assests and potential co...

re: Construct a realistic playoff team under the following criteria. - irvchilichill1
I still say my realistic squad is more than a likely scenario, sans a blockbuster trade of getting Simmons (not likely since Doc got hired) or Myles (not likely since Indiana would like to see their squad with a healthy Oladipo b4 moving pieces). I know people question getting Giles but look at t...

re: Construct a realistic playoff team under the following criteria. - irvchilichill1
Harris is not Holiday. Period. He's a 6th man thats starting. Plus, his shot done went to s#!& this year for a while and he is not a perrenial,ALL-NBA defender. Gotta get premium return for trading scoring defenders. When u dont make ALL NBA defensive team and basically the whole LEAGUE says how...

re: Construct a realistic playoff team under the following criteria. - irvchilichill1
If the Pels say no to a Harris/MPJ trade, then it aint happening. And Grant did not play himself into 20 mil/per deal. I like him but lets not overvalue his likely contribution and the dearth of players that are "tweeners" 3/4 players. He's a solid spot starter and will have a number of good ...

re: Construct a realistic playoff team under the following criteria. - irvchilichill1
Only possible restriction or lack of desire to that trade is not being able to utilize the MLE for Giles. Boom. But from all indications, very valid deal. Might need to brush up on your CBA rules and sign and trade restrictions FunBunch. Restricted free agents are where it gets tricky or playe...

[quote]You clearly don’t understand. [/quote] Not a salary cap guru, but I can read and comprehend. But just did successful trade as prior mentioned with Grant making 11 mil and $500,000 increase (8% min) every year. Trade was successful. Tbh, would attach screenshot but dont know how wit...

Absolutely can: Grant is an Unrestricted free agent. Under terms of the current CBA, sign-and-trades come with many significant restrictions. Transactions under this rule require all of the following to be true:[2] The player must re-sign with his former team. Additionally, the player must h...
