Got an Xbox one for my birthday. Planning to get FIFA 15, 2k15, and forza horizon 2 but all of those are late sept/ Oct releases. Any suggestion for something to get for now to hold me over? Contemplated madden tomorrow but I know I'll be mad I spent 60 bucks like 10 days after I buy it and the newness wears off

@okcjim Good question. I'm actually leaning towards Jackson for our particular needs

@OBoy (LaFamilia) @okcjim doubt it on Rondo. With as much as he's been on the trade block and no bites, can't quite see a ton of max offers falling from the sky for him
@Butterfingers yup in every fictional trade ever
@Butterfingers Yeah we'll trade them one of our surplus of players with high trade value
@Butterfingers imo Jackson and Harden would be about as redundant a backcourt combo as you could put together. Morey might try it, but I doubt it

@Perk has a lot of value bottom row second through 4th from the left, and top row far right through 3rd from right, plus the tall chick. I'd climb that tree
@Devine Mortal don't lie though, ratings might go through the roof if you got somebody who just brought nothing but unbiased, ultra-real commentary. I know I'd watch it, especially if they were extremely sarcastic.
"And OKC begins the game with a punt by Kendrick Perkins. Chalmers is there to receive it, 50, 40, 30, halfcourt, three point line, free throw line, and touchdown. The Thunder defensive line were really caught off guard and had no chance there of making a stop. They've got to keep possession on offense a little longer to at least give those big guys, especially their star punter, Perkins, more rest."
Really though, how you gonna write an article on the Thunder girls without at least one picture?! I wish I had 4 hands, so I could give that 4 thumbs DOWN

@KD4theWin @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard not his rookie season, 2014-15. I posted the link a few days ago
@Half International Man of Mystery Half Amazing Mine is sign the two or three highest rated free agents immediately, wait the 30 day no-trade period, package them with Perk, Lamb, Huestis, Robes, or picks, and trade for the team with the worst record's 1st rounder that I can find with a three star trade value or less plus maybe another decent player. Then flip that plus two more highish rated free agents once the trade deadline hits and the trade value of the first rounder goes up, in exchange for James Harden.
Russ 40-Harden 40-KD 40-Ibaka 40-Adams 30
Reggie 30-Morrow 20-Perry 15-Nick-McGary whatever's left I don't like math
@KD4theWin while I agree that we should, in a perfect world, have dumped Perk years ago, this is the same site that posted an article claiming Steven Adams and Jeremy Lamb had chances to be All-Stars this coming season, so I can't take any of their opinions seriously
No its just that "who is this" is much more appropriate than your real name buddy
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: PG
16-17 maybe but this article implies him AND lamb will both make all star cases THIS year.
Still, the upcoming draft is center heavy, and a lot of other factors make even 16-17 unlikely for Adams.

Don't know if anybody has seen this but it popped up on my google now feed... Lmmmmmmaaaaaaaoooooo
*yawn* this topic is crazy old. We're trading KD for Harden, a second rounder, and Cole Aldrich after he has a break out year where he averages 3.4 ppg and 4.9 rpg and has developed intangibles and a mean scowl to start in front of Adams. It's over, just accept it.

Goodness its been painfully boring every time I've stopped by the last few days.
@nasama well.. the fact that we're not really allowed to do that is the main problem at hand here
@_patrickshannon so much sads
@F_Boogie na. but lawd have mercy that avatar is wonderful. minus the part where argentina lost of course
@Russ is better than KD SAS still the safest, but we're one of the stronger ones out there
@FallenOSIRIS @nasama @L0rv @Russ is better than KD With Morrow on the roster, I think we've moved ahead of the Spurs in my head. We certainly weren't though without him, Ibaka or not.
Edit: Sorry not ahead of, but even. We were firmly behind last year in terms of roster build.
@fun police @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @L0rv depending how good you are at investing, that could be quite awesome. A millionaire at 19, and in retirement at 25.
@fun police @L0rv true, but at the end of the day, he's probably out of the league by the end of his rookie contract anyway imo
@Russ is better than KD how do you think you'll be when Durant stays, Russ leaves, and Durant + scrubs mops up on Russ and a stacked Lakers team?
@Turf is always Greener @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @Marko (Lacoste baby) puppy videos are an instant boost to any social media skillset
@fun police @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard agreed on all counts
@Turf is always Greener @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard however minor league hockey is much more high paid at an average of $65k yearly
@FallenOSIRIS @OBoy (LaFamilia) @okcjim i feel like this is a continual trend with them, but even moreso this year than usual
@Turf is always Greener @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard baseball doesn't make much at all. Between $3k and $7.5k for a 5 month season is what they quoted in their complaint. However, that's not the most accurate representation, since they get signing bonuses based on where they are drafted, so higher draft picks may get 6 or 7 figure signing bonuses, while lower ones are quoted at around a $2,500 signing bonus.
@LONG ARM of the LAW worse .net website, jimtraber or jeremylin.net?
@Marko (Lacoste baby) yup. Like Mitch McGary the basketball player, certainly won't be following McGary the tweeter unless he makes a serious jump in quality of production.
While Ziller is a little off base, I do think the general premise has some merit. However, I maintain that Huestis was NOT going to be drafted by anybody else. He wasn't even invited to the combine for goodness sakes. That, to me, changes the narrative quite a bit. If we took a player's rights from another NBA team, then wanted to demote them to the D-League to make 25k a year, this would be a problem. But this is a guy that, unless everybody in the league did an AMAZING job of staying tightlipped, was not going to be given any NBA opportunity at all, which I think changes the story entirely.
But yeah, if the NBA wants the D-League to be a viable option, wages need to rise. Not necessarily skyrocket, but they need to be competitive with at least some of the many many markets there are for basketball players to play professionally or semi-professionally in all over the world.
@duhsweetness @Marko (Lacoste baby) that's the real issue at hand here imo. If they paid even competitive to mid level international leagues, the D-League would be a much more realistic option for development, but if guys are making teacher's pay and could make significantly more in 10+ other leagues overseas, why would they stay?
@King of Carrot Flowers the third I think I have a bit of a unique perspective because ironically, my old boss started his career under strong and then he worked for Saban. We heard many many good stories about both coaches. You're right on all of your points about Strong. I disagree with your last statement, because I believe that Saban is a transcendent personality who can single handedly turn any school (not just their football team, but other programs as well, he's had a huge impact on Bama's women's programs) into perennial contenders, because he personifies "winning culture" and is a one man injection of such.
I don't think Strong was necessarily a better choice or a worse choice. i actually think either was a great choice and Texas will have nothing but bad memories of Mack Brown after a few years of Strong.
