At least we got balck fish back. Swimming in the murky depths. Lying dormant below the sand for months on end. Striking blindly at passing krill only to come up hungry. After a season of platitude to awaken from hibernation with the strength of 39 grandpas to prove once again: a lion at the end of his life is the most deadly and ferocious.

I had a similar encounter with Nick Collison at the Other Room after the Valentines day lose to the Heat. Told him, "Thank you for playing here. We hope you never leave." Then I made a drunken fool of myself with Wayne Coyne after we went shot for shot on some Jefferson Bourbon. Btw who is Lito?

I'm pretty upset Gobert got taken at 27. I would have loved to have Adams, Gobert, and Thabeet all competing for the starting center job over the next 2 years.

I love the idea but would rather target Mclemore. I don't see Olidepo as a big upgrade over Thabo but see Mclemore as a huge potential upgrade over Martin and lamb. Olidepo is stagnant in offense and otherworldly on defense, but Mclemore has the ability to take over a game, if used correctly, and is solid in his man and off-ball defense. Maybe more important, he is sliding on draft boards and is the more attainable prospect.

If there is anything to this then it is great news. It would certainly help Durant evolv as a point-forward and probably help PJ3 cement a spot in the lineup. Fingers crossed.

@TaoMaas The point of Miami is Perkins is inneffective against them. However, they are vulnerable to a dominant center. Thus, use the aforementioned assets packaged with Perkins to acquire one. Or if a true center is not available, trade Perk for depth at any other position.

@Royce Young You mean in the post?

Perkins cannot shoot. He cannot pass. He cannot rebound. He cannot dribble. We have him for his defensive prowess and ability to match up against elite big men. He just proved that he cannot do that either. We are competing, almost solely against Miami for the foreseeable future. They do not have a true big and he is simply a liability against them. 

Lamb and PJ3 played miniscule minutes this season where we won 60 games so giving up both and all our draft picks wouldn't hurt this team as long as Martin stays. I am not advocating giving up all but would be willing to if the right opportunity presented itself. In Presti we trust.

@Royce Young @Amnesty Perkins It is the exact same logic

@Royce Young @Ibaka's Jumpshot  They won 60 games with Daniel Orton on the Roster. Do not commit a post hoc fallacy. Simply because he was on the team does not mean he was responsible for the wins.

Writing an article entitled 'Should the Thunder Amnesty Kendrick Perkins?' and then spending the duration defending the indefensible and explaining why they cannot amnesty him. Irresponsible. Give proper credence to all possibilities instead of simply explaining why they are wrong. I.e. the trade Perk scenario.

@senseandsenescence we could even give up Jackson here but a big market like Boston must have a point guard.

With Rondo going down how about this? Mayor to Boston. V. Carter to OKC. J. Sullinger & L. Barbosa to Dallas.
