I like how Berry Trammel says he hasn't seen any "evidence" that Thabo's lost his defensive prowess and then immediately goes on to talk about evidence; evidence he has seen but doesn't believe matters. I wish logic didn't matter in my line of work. Life would be so much easier.

@Dicharden The marijuana that's legal is only for medical use. I'm pretty sure you can't just stroll down the street and buy some weed. That said, *maybe* Beasley could get a prescription.

@LAMBGOD I thought he was Matt Murdock. Then again, I thought Ryan Reynolds was Hannibal King... and then Wade Wilson.... or is he Hal Jordan? I give Chris Evans a pass since he actually performed well in his second role and is continuing it for quite a while.

I don't really watch enough baseball to know for sure, but I think it's pretty amateurish to "[seek] singles every time rather than home runs every so often." I think baseball requires a much more nuanced approach than just "try to hit the ball" whether hard or safely consistent.

@DXL @yehoshuagardner @[corporate shill] I'm done arguing with a guy who keeps changing definitions. But last one: Battier is not a shooting guard. And to restate: No championship team has won in the last 18 years with a 3-and-D guy or defensive role player or any kind of role player as their primary, most-minutes-played shooting guard

@DXL @yehoshuagardner @[corporate shill] "Plenty of teams plug in a 3-and-D guy and they're fine."
"3-and-D works at the shooting guard position."
Even if we let you back-track on what you really said, Terry was not a role player. He was their second best player behind Dirk.
@DXL @yehoshuagardner @[corporate shill] Your point is that you can win a championship with a 3-and-D shooting guard. Jason Terry is not a 3-and-D shooting guard.
@DXL @yehoshuagardner @[corporate shill] Ummm... none of the last 18 champions have had a (high minutes) 3-and-D shooting guard. None of them have had a (high minutes) defensive role player. If they've been good defenders, they've been superstars.
@DXL @[corporate shill] It's pretty ridiculous to laud the 3-and-D guy at all looking at recent championship winners.
Dwyane Wade: terrible 3-point shooter.
Jason Terry: terrible defender
Kobe Bryant: much more than 3-and-D player
Ray Allen: bad defender
Ginobili: pretty poor defender aside from flopping
Rip Hamilton: poor-ish defender, much better scorer
Michael Jordan: your argument sucks!
Now all those teams had good two-way big men, but saying that all you need is to plug in a 3-and-D guy at shooting guard to win is utterly stupid.
@OBoy @The Big Ticket No, OKC will beat Brooklyn by using guys to play the sport. Duh.

@AlexR44 There's one last thing that could save the Harden trade and make it a resounding success. The Mavs stick around as halfway decent until their pick we got in the trade becomes unprotected and ends up being a top 2 or 3 superstar pick. C'mon Cuban!
4 months ago on Video: Talking about, um, James Harden
@AlexR44 You could be right. I would have taken the chance that that wouldn't be the case. That risk, with the reward of having a borderline superstar/all-star (if not an actual all-star) for only $5mil, seems to be a lot less than the risk of Martin leaving after one year, the Toronto pick sliding further and further back, and Lamb not being very good (much of which has already happened).
@AlexR44 What do you mean, "pollute the well"?
Here's where I think the Harden trade fell short: the Toronto pick. Early after the trade, up until maybe half way through the season, that Toronto pick was looking good. Then they traded for Rudy Gay and they actually cared about being good. And why should they not? It wasn't their draft interests that were suffering.
Just think about if they had stayed as bad as they were and we ended up with the 6th or better pick. We could have had Nerlens Noel, Alex Len, Cody Zeller, or several other really good players. The trade looks a whole lot better as Martin, Lamb, and Noel for Harden (et al). That's why I think they should have waited to trade Harden. Either trade him right before the draft or match the offer sheet and trade him as soon as you can (which I think is sometime in the middle of the season).
@seth_22 All you have to do is match and then trade him 6 months or so later. Bring back expiring contracts or 1st round picks.
