Great article

I have a question for older basketball fans:

in the the 90s were there articles that went into this much detail about  salary cap and luxury tax?  Did people care this much? Now every conversation I have with friends about any kind of roster moves (trade, free agency, etc) is centered around player salary. Was it always like this?

@AIaska @persiansooner @RWolverine You're crazy biased if you think westbrook is a top 5 player

@RWolverine actually now without harden I suppose russ would be better, but this stems from the point of KD+Harden+another above average, facilitating, high 3P% PG>KD+Harden+Russ. And KD+Harden+ Good PG>>>>KD+Russ+ Good SG

@RWolverine @persiansooner Yes they do wish they were Russell Westbrook because Russell Westbrook is much better than both of them. My point is about the fit on this team.

I am a "fervent Westbrook critic" and I shall continue to deny how much he means to the team. Westbrook is an elite player who had the 2nd highest usage in the NBA (only melo's USG was higher). When you SUBTRACT this, obviously the team will be in disarray. For a fair assessment you need to actually REPLACE him. If he hobbled off and Jrue Holiday or Ty Lawson or someone stepped in, everything would have been just fine. But what if KD went down and Batum or Gallo had to step in for him? Series over

The Chandler trade that wasnt gets too much heat: Chandler missed almost half the next year with foot/ankle injuries so Dr Yates was right about the toe being an issue. He averaged 6 and 6 that year (perk averaged 10 and 8). And then if he replicated his good contract year here there was no way he could have been resigned anyway

my theory for that style of shooting: I used to shoot the exact same way (except lefty)  and I think it is because my right eye is MUCH stronger than my left, so I feel more aligned when i am shooting from my right side. If anyone gets a chance ask K mart if his left eye is stronger than his right

fantasy question: how do yall feel about the strategy of basically throwing away a category? I have a ton of 3 pt shooters, which should also be good for my FT%, but only 1 PG. Should I just concede the assist category or diversify?

 @GrapeNUTZ ill never forget going to the T wolves game last year and he was guarding wes johnson. He would be looking into the crowd before the ball was in play, but then he was still looking in the crowd when the ball was inbounded haha. Fortunately it was Wes Johnson and he obviously didnt do anything but man...cmon james
