[quote] next BI’s agent canvases league on who’s willing to pay max/near max dollars, BI canvases the list and rules out poverty franchises and selects list of teams who indicate willingness to pay, are well run and have a need at wing with a legit point.[/quote] You are assuming the teams willin...
[quote]If nothing else, watch the miniseries then [/quote] This is an important point for people watching on Prime. Basically an extra long pilot episode is listed separately from the main series the way Amazon organizes things. [link=(https://www.amazon.com/Battlestar-Galactica-The-Mini-Seri...
[quote]We’ll see but you kind of have to hit on a lot of things to be a contender. And wasting the number 4 pick is pretty damning.[/quote] There is no question that he is more lucky than good, but he’s lucky enough in his career that it’s hard to dismiss as random luck not likely to happen again...
There is no denying Griff wasted the assets he was given. There is also no denying he came close to balancing the scales by pulling Herb and Trey with lesser assets. We can’t just say Griff screwed #4 without also acknowledging he outkicked the coverage with #35 and #17. What he does with BI, or...
If Cleveland is trading him it's because he wouldn't sign an extension with them. Why would he sign an extension with the Pels if he wouldn't with the Cavs? No extension = Low offer from Griff. Most of the competitors appear to be markets he would stay in long term, so they can go further tha...
None of that matters. Griff loves Big Game Hunting, he just never brings the right ammo....

[quote]Trae leads the league in potential assists at 18.2[/quote] That's a good number but [quote]33% of his shots were assisted. [/quote] That seems pretty low as evidence of "killing the ball hog narrative" I don't even think that matters in the way we think it does though. BI failed...

[quote]If that's what we do with a supposedly transcendental star, we're doomed to mediocrity. You're talking about a transcendental overall #1 pick becoming little more than a cutter off the ball. [/quote] He's a supposedly transcendental star that has proven fragile enough that you may not want...

[quote] In what way is "holding onto the ball and not initiating any sort of set offense and only passing when he can get an easy assist" playing "traditional" pg? Maybe in the crazy 1960s? [/quote] Can he successfully do this in crunch time? Despite BI's offense breaking tendencies, we woul...
Just looking at highlights and stats I'm wondering if there's a signifitcant difference between Garland and CJ? I know Garland averages more assists, but their Ast:TO ratio is pretty similar. Sure he's younger, but what does he add that the Pels don't already have or would be losing with BI going ...
[quote] The point of Point Zion is for ZION to run the POINT[/quote] I fully admit I don’t watch enough Trae to know how good of a fit he would be, but I disagree completely with this assertion that Zion needs to run the offense. Zion just needs the ball in space heading down hill, he doesn’t hav...
That trade just doesn’t balance for me but I can’t put my finger on what needs to change. On the surface it feels like the Pels get too much value, but that’s from quantity, not quality. I can see a deal going down between these 3 teams though. They are all in similar positions of having somethi...
[quote]The main deal is likely Trae buying in that Zion is Batman and he is Robin. [/quote] People are saying they are friends off the court that want to play together. I have no idea how true or strong that is, but if it's even half true I'm not worried about their personal chemistry. We also ...
[quote]Would have to hope DD really improved a level or two to fill Herbs shoes. [/quote] Nobody is filling Herb's shoes. If your goal is to stop a player 1-5, even now Dyson might be the better choice. But if your goal is to stop a play, Herb is and always will be better than Dyson because Her...
[quote]It just means Ingram is much more reasonable to trade for than Trae. Young will require more assets to land.[/quote] I don't even think it means that. Trae has a toxic locker room reputation, and many would argue he's overrated as player. There are just a lot of red flags around Trae tha...

[quote]Saw people kicking around the Jazz/Pels trade of: Pels get: Kessler Sexton Collins #10 Jazz get: BI Nance[/quote] Isn't Collins good for both regular rotation and redundancy though? Sexton is not the lead guard at the top of my list, but he is on the list and this trade seem...

[quote]I don't view White as a realistic option. The Bulls have Derozan. White is an up and coming dude... Why would they want BI? That's just not a team where a potential BI deal is viable for White, I just don't see the path.[/quote] I wonder if the Bulls would consider tanking? S...
Griff is doing his thing. I've seen even more interest in BI than I expected. ...
