@OBoyBack when he was here I had an idea for a Booker/Singleton swap for Maynor. Wash. makes sense for him.

 @ou_sas  @f5alcon It's tough at his USG. He would likely top Bird as highest USG ever to do it, if he does it anytime soon.

 @ou_sas @f5alcon He made 9 out of 10 free throws a game three years ago. And he shot nearly 39% from three last season, while taking a lot of bad ones. If he gets over the playmaker idea he could probably achieve it comfortably.

 @OBoymuzik  @ou_sas  @Crow Bynum's already hurt. But they probably don't have much reason to take him on with Spencer Hawes capable of playing C. Chicago would do this though.

Basketball Twitter at its worst right now. Yeah, penalizing flopping creates some double-standards, and basketball refs aren't perfect, and the industry usually rewards deception. But jeez the snark is so, so predictable.

 @Jooseppi @StretchNeuron I like it too, just hope it's a home alternate. I don't think I'd like that contrasting navy/white look with black shoes and socks, and they shouldn't wear white shoes and socks on the road.

That's a good top nine, but Chris Paul is still a 10 to me. Durant/Howard/Paul/healthy Wade is a pretty distinct non-Bron teir. Deficiencies in defense and/or efficiency separate the next group of four guys.

I fully expect 'OKC' lettering. Too many official colors to know what they've chosen. A navy home alternate would be fun, with white shoes/socks/accessories.

My problem with the jersey ads, it'll make the revenue gulf between big markets and small markets even wider.

Kendrick Perkins gives the Lakers an A+ on their offseason for keeping him relevant two more seasons. 

 

Why doesn't LA follow Miami's lead? Trade Bynum for Josh Smith or something, start Gasol at center, play small and back Brooks into a corner.

 @Jooseppi Harden sometimes kills possessions by refusing to take a mid-range shot. Westbrook sometimes kills possessions by taking mid-range shots.

 @Jooseppi  @Lost Ones Even if it wasn't fully due to restraint, Harden's shot selection is perfect for a third option.

They started calling that carry on Reggie last year. It's the Tony Parker move.

Starting Harden (i.e. playing more minutes with RW and KD) would create more developmental minutes than Brooks had at his disposal last year if reg. season wins are a concern.

It might be very disruptive to Reggie's development if he doesn't play much next season. Tough decisions for Brooks and Presti.

My big problem with Aldrich has always been rebounding. He should be a lot better.

If PJIII is this much better than Cole, Collison is the new backup center.

I hope Cole Aldrich spends the summer on fitness and rebounding. Mainly effort/focus stuff and consistency. With Perk playing under expectations and way under value, Cole has the skill set and age to be a key dynasty piece. He doesn't carry himself like that or seem to realize it. Maybe I'm wrong.

Try looking at Jones categorically. What could he bring defensively? Defense on perimeter bigs, something we need. What could he bring offensively? A mobile tweener with ball skills. Just what we need. And that's baseline. Maybe he has so much potential it seems he's bound to come up short.

@justin_mia @SammyThunderer What's the difference between Lamar Odom and Anthony Randolph? If comes down to understanding of the game, I fear PJ3 may be more Magic. But those two aren't athletic freaks.
