80% of the rw barney collection is ugly or boring and 100% is ridic expensive. 80 plus of what rw wears looks ridic or ugly to me but I don't really care

Warriors could use this trade's assets in minny trade for love, get back up for bogut, time for Barnes or Jones as alternative, free cap space to sign Thompson or provide a plan b, etc.

By my check there are almost no good sgs realistic to get by trade so I looked for a big who can score at least some and could be on court in 4th quarter.

You can more easily argue that harden / Howard have championship capable talent than champ level leadership. They can argue with parsons about not needing him but Morey just took huge risks / losses trying to get a third star, presumably thinking he had far less or no chance to get there with just 2 stars, just those two stars. Uh James and Dwight, you might notice and think about that. You too Daryl. And Les.

1 to is about equivalent in value to lowering fg% by 5% on 10 shots. In 15-20 minutes perk doesn't personally face 10 shots on avg. Maybe he lowers fg% by 10% on 5 shots. If so he just offsets a turnover.

Re this shirt with perk dribbling:his to% last season was the 2nd worst in last 13 yrs for guys playing 15 plus minutes per game. Only Tinsley in Utah in 2012-3 was worse and he is a pg who has to try to pass. Also b-r says perk's middle name is le'dale, not Lamar.

A mid-yr tournament will be not much without coach and player buy-in.

Far more radical and exciting to me would be separate fall and spring seasons with their own playoffs and free agency.

Stars are prob going to push for bigger share. Paul as pres is in position to prioritize it. Middle class still has numbers but do they have adeq. Voice compared to stats and star's agents?

My calcs on costs were real conservative, so costs could be higher. But yeah rev will be too. Exact interface/ balance to be determined. Most teams won't have 3 mega deals renewing early in new tv deal. Cap raises might build a bit more gradually rather than jump tremendously immediately in new deal if owners win the cba deal again.

A first rough answer to the question I raised earlier:

if current cast is maintained and paid min. Market rate, the thunder are probably looking at near a $90 mil payroll in 2016-7. This assumes Durant gets $30 mil as an older max under new tv deal. The following yr I'd estimate going close to $115-120 mil to retain rw and serge at $25 and $20 mil respectively. If they unwilling or unable to go that high then some to lots of players will to have to go in favor of cheaper and perhaps inferior players.

Yeah but it is more likely to 25-50% increase for rev and spending.

For a handful of years but not so easy beyond unless you churn to younger guys still on rookie contracts or move to less depth, depend on 8 instead of 10 plus.

2017-8 and beyond will be harder fits than 2016-7 but it is not going to be easy to sustain or upgrade as current guys move to 2nd and 3rd contracts.

He is one of the very best mid-range shooters. Team need at least one guy good at them. Two might be nice if they use great discretion, I.e. Only take truly open ones or finals seconds on clock necessary ones.
