did they boo harden tonight
@K-Dagger Plainview I am down with if you mean Houston's Jeremy Lamb
9 months ago on Does a James Harden trade make sense?
@ThunderCityUsa @Adub @ou_sasIf any other team had made the acquisitions that the Lakers did this summer the media would be all over what it means for their future. I know the Lakers make a mint but I think Kobe is the easiest to replace of their major players and he has the craziest contract in the NBA. His off court value is the only thing that will save him.
9 months, 1 week ago on 3-on-3: Threatened
The first step to the amnesty bus is being untradeable. Kobe's combination of age and contract makes him untradeable. (that and a no trade clause). He would never admit it but I think he has to be nervous.
Even the Mavericks had to part with key pieces to regroup. The lakers have some expiring contracts and Kobe will be 35. I know its crazy but they may be planning on retooling around Howard
Has anyone thought of the possibility of the Lakers amnestying Kobe after the season. His salary would carry a value with penalty of somewhere in the 45-75 million range.
KD takes that shot 100 out of a 100 times
1 year, 1 month ago on Derrick Rose says KD’s the MVP right now
Any argument about the MVP should start with the head to head matchup. There is the most honest evaluation of whose better. It is general managers and coaches want to see when they evaluate the draft. KD went right at Lebron who played passively. Any argument that only uses statistics reminds of Wayne Winston.
He was paid for his statistical analysis and he was able to mathematically deduce that he wouldn't take KD on his team for any price. I am sure he could back up his argument but he was just wrong.
This trade actually makes sense. I just don't know if Utah wants to save money enough to trade Jefferson.

hey if we picked on looks we would never have signed nenad
He would probably wreck the team chemistry, I don't know anything about trades, and we would have to keep him for two years, but it would give Brooks all kinds of small ball options.
I don't think this trade has a chance, but it is fun to think about trades that won't happen. How about Monta Ellis for Nazr, Daequan, BJ's trade exception and our first rounder. The warriors clear some cap space and get a pick, we get an unstoppable second unit.
These are both good comments. I certainly wouldn't have predicted that Eric Gordon would have been offered along with the unprotected first round pick.
With regard to Stern's comments, the only person who mentioned that the goal of rejecting the trade was to re-tool with a younger roster that I remember was Tom Penn. Instead most media jumped to the conclusion that he was listening to Dan Gilbert and trying to impose his will on larger markets.
When the Thunder traded Ray Allen and began the process of rebuilding through the draft they were accused of destroying the team. I think it is a hard thing to tell the 10,000 people who have ordered season tickets that the team might have to endure a 3-29 start like the Thunder did.
It would have been better for David Stern to use your phrase of "a better roster to build on with cap flexibility" to describe the trade.
1 year, 5 months ago on The best pictures from Thunder media day
Aldrich looks like he has one crazy eye.
I think he is referring to the comments from the national media that there was no way the Hornets would get a better offer than the one from the Lakers, which actually added to their payroll and made them older. This trade really resembles the initial trades that Presti made to rebuild the Thunder.
Grolgar This shooting ability will make him an all star for sure!
1 year, 5 months ago on Thunder acquires Lazar Hayward from Minnesota
That's a good point. My comment was primarily directed to the media coverage. There is a general arrogance in the feeling that is shared by a large number of the media that the bigger teams should be better. Case in point ESPN analyst Kurt Rambis just said that teams like for the Lakers to be dominant because they depend on the gate revenue when the Lakers come to town.
He really has no idea how ludicrous that sounds to a fan like me.

It is not David Stern who is out of touch with the current NBA, it is the writers who cover the league. Most writers remember the time that they started to love the NBA as defined by the dynasties of that era. I am not a fan of large markets robbing marquee players to continually reform dynasties. The NFL is so poplular because Detroit, Houston, and Carolina are all competitive. The large markets and the media who cover them think dominant teams in large cities is good for the league. They lampoon the potential ratings of finals of small market finals matchups.
It is not David Stern and Dan Gilbert who are moving toward irrelevancy, it is writers like Bill Simmons who don't realize that the majority of NBA fans don't live in Boston or LA.
