@Russ is better than KD I live in a 2500 sq ft, modern house on 10 acres with great wifi...I have no neighbors within .5 miles of me and he is only on one side. North, E, S, I have no neighbors within a mile. The guy that owns the land around me let's us use his land as long as we don't bother the cows. If 10 cars pass my house in a day, it's busy. My 6 kids can play in the yard by themselves without fear of getting hit or kidnapped. They play in a creek that neighbors my house, run through the woods, catch fireflies, go fishing, ride 4 wheelers...and I paid less than 100k for all of that...I don't owe for a car and will be debt free within 5 years. I have a good job, live close enough to OKC to do 'city' things...It's pretty cool.
But, I travel a lot and certainly like Oceans, big cities, theater, museums etc. I see all sides. But I love my home and am proud to be an Oklahoman.

@Russ is better than KD I'd greatly disagree with MLB...the Yankees treat other teams as their AAA franchise....

Not my point...was referring to the Wiggins KLove stuff below.

For Kevin Love...he's a top 10 player.
I will say I think it is very close. The original post was "I'd go insane. Opt out city." It's way closer than that. Wiggins on a rookie deal vs KLove who will want a max extension in a year...
He is. As is harden. And, like Harden, he plays zero defense.
yes it is. No doubet KLove is a great player but I think he is overhyped.
Plus, I never said Widdings is as good or better than KLove. Wiggins on a rookie contract is my choce over maxed out KLove.
From Zach Lowe:
We can debate Love’s shortcomings, and loudly revoke his superstar card for failing to lead his team to the playoffs in any of his first six seasons. And he has shortcomings. He offers no rim protection, he lollygags in transition defense, he’s not going to make spirited second and third rotations on the same defensive possession, and he often fails to challenge shots in order to secure boxout position — and precious rebounds. Love wants his numbers.
I'm not a believer in Kevin Love. I see him as the power forward version of James Harden. Great individual offensive player, very selfish, loves numbers, plays zero defense. KLove values rebounding more than help defense and sacrifices the little things needed to win over getting those extra ORBDs and DRBDs.
Great talent. Great individual player. Not a team player. I'd keep Wiggins as a defensive player on a rookie contract over the hype of a max player like Love.
Was there news today for Pleiss? I thought I saw something posted here but can't find it now.

Also if the #Bulls go after Wade, have to wonder if that financially takes away their money they could have given Gasol.Read more: http://hoopshype.com/twitter/media.html#ixzz37C7jJoZZ

Though on Gasol's decision, I don't think he'll decide until after Melo chooses his destination first.Read more: http://hoopshype.com/twitter/media.html#ixzz37C7aHKCM

What if Cleveland had been smart and drafted Noel...
"I’m ready to accept the challenge. I’m coming home."
It's a narrative from LBJ
Is there a Flynn rumor?
Would the team be better by simply amnestying Perkins and signing Pleiss?
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Thursday Bolts – 7.10.14
Which would you rather have...Reggie Jackson/Lamb/2015 1st round pick
trade those 3 assets for Kyle Korver/sign DJ Augustin?
Not that Atlanta would do a trade with us, just a hypothetical situation. I'd go with Korver...
The Grant Long story is crazy. Very embarrassing for him. I wonder if it will have any impact on his job status with the Thunder...I always liked Long as a player but he's pretty bad as a homer announcer.

@SteveThunderfan You can't sign and trade someone until Dec 15th or 90 days, whichever is later...can't sign a FA from another team and then trade them.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Tuesday Bolts – 7.8.14
@[weed wolf faction] @SteveThunderfan A simultaneous trade would mean a 3 way trade and we could sign Gasol to 150% of outgoing salaries. A non-simultaneous trade that generates a TPE with Philly would mean we could sign Gasol to outgoing salaries + 100k

Undervalued yesterday in all the McGary love was Kendall Gill's wonderful comparison of Ben Gordon's Charlotte years to Pau Gasol's Memphis years...
DVR'd tonight's game...just watching. We all now know why Kendall Gill isn't a real commentator Kamla was solid, Gill was abhorrent, at one point comparing Ben Gordon's Charlotte days to Pau Gasol's Memphis days. Not. Even. Close.

The word of Christ...
I have a personal relationship with Reality
The checklist to help OKC land Gasol would be Melo staying in New York, Bosh staying in Miami, and LeBron picking Cleveland/Miami.Read more: http://hoopshype.com/twitter/media.html#ixzz36ofcguKX

Ohhhhh...thought maybe something more recent and from a decent source...

Is there a link for the Gasol visit?
Seems like a statistical outlier. .338 career percentage from 3
I really like Chandler. His 3Pt% is a little low, like 36%, but he has size and defensive ability. He can score in other ways as well. Would be a great pickup.
Avery Bradley 4/32M? Sets the bar kinda high for Reggie...
4 weeks ago on Tuesday Bolts – 7.1.14
Perk won't end up in LA...he'll go to a 3rd team facilitating the trade.
1 month ago on Thunder free agency primer
I think the easy answer to the Pau rumors is a trade involving Perkins (not going to the Lakers). A rebuilding team with cap space, like Philly or Utah, could take Perk and compensation (1st rnder, Lamb, PJ3) or if a team like Miami would take Perk without sending back salary, that would create a 9M trade exception to acquire Pau via sign and trade. Or just a plain 3 team trade that would allow us to pay Pau 13.5 M...but I think Pau could slide right into Perk's 9M salary.
I am excited to see Darnell report that Pleiss is not coming over...since that obviously means he is coming over.

I'm all for defense...but why can't we draft an offensive player at all
The dude didn't even think he would get drafted.
@Prodigy-X I like GR3 but not if Early is there.
