@Perk has a lot of value @Mr_F I did too, offensively at least. I think he's lost a step defensively, though.

I don't miss Thabo's pump-faking, mostly because Serge has picked up 85% of the dropoff.

"One shot is not going to make him crawl into the hole and make him not compete the next night." That's like the complete opposite of Lamb. Sigh.

@Legendary_Dork If they closed on Serge's "open" jumper, he would've just pump faked twice before passing it back out.

Lol that you're fine with Presti offering $56 million but think Harden wasn't worth the max.

He's a role player. One of the league's best role players, but still a role player.

Oh I agree, I just think those GMs were brain dead too. Makes absolutely no sense to me.

He was definitely worth the max, but it's still crazy to think the wizards and GSW turned down trade offers for him.

I didn't say good, I said better than he's been in a week, a week in which hes been horrid. But I also didn't realize he shot so poorly tonight, I only half paid attention in the second half

Really? I thought Reggie was better tonight than he's been in a week. At least he was getting to the rim.

@TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @f5alcon @KindaScottish From the looks of yesterday's game thread, lots of fans don't need help from Royce to be mad at Reggie.  (Not that I agree btw.)

@KindaScottish @Thunder_Blue 100% this. I don't particularly think Reggie has been great this year (he's been fine, and not the reason we've been losing games), but he has absolutely nothing to work with. Impossible to compare that to anything from last year.

@The McAdams Bros @_justin @Jooseppi @Silhou8 Single-game, individual +/- is too noisy to be meaningful. It's really as simple as that. Even 5-man unit +/- is pretty noisy when looking at a single game, you're not getting any good information by relying on that.

@_justin @The McAdams Bros @Jooseppi @Silhou8 Justin do you see any value in season-long individual +/-? Or still prefer one of the adjusted ones?

@El Prez @sammasaaron I think it's hard to take anything from hockey, where a goalie can get in the groove and completely change a series.  But that said, I think this team (healthy) can win any 7-game series w/o home court.

@_justin @ScottsSounds @L0rv @d21 This Thunder team doesn't necessarily have to be better than 2012-13 to win the title. Or put another way, what Lowe (hopefully) disagrees with is that "the current mix of players and head coach is simply not good enough to get over the hump."

@Juwanna @FallenOSIRIS 1. The final roster cuts haven't been made yet, so it's more comparable to breaking the wedding off a few weeks ahead. 2. The FIBA World Cup isn't comparable to a wedding anyway, it's a terrible analogy.

While I agree it could set a bad precedent, a front office would look pretty bad to not honor such a deal, and you can guarantee no agent would agree to such a deal again. You can only burn that bridge once.

@d21 @Dominator Tell me if I'm wrong, but if the Cavs sign Wiggins first then his salary counts for matching, and they could keep Thompson? But they'd have to wait 30 days to trade Wiggins.

@ Luke Wow, Lowe goes in on Dwight and Howard as teammates a bit too talking about Bosh. "But there is an undercurrent around the league that Harden and Howard don’t represent the most appealing duo of teammates for any star who has lived within ultraserious professionalism."

@Air Bud @anonymous12345 @Mr_F Yeah he might've meant style of play included (both Harden and Dwight need lots of touches, so not much left for a 3rd star). It wasn't really clear to me.
