@SeinfeldOKC do or do not. there is no try.
@SeinfeldOKC that's very zen
@King of Carrot Flowers the third not sure where the clippers will end up but i think the warriors are better than the clippers. alot depends on bogut/ezelli though.
barring injuries (big if) i think the warriors are gonna leapfrog the clippers this year
@Perk has a lot of value feel like kanter's gonna be the one that utah trades if gobert plays anything like he did this summer.
@Sustainable Parameters my eyes can't unsee what google returns on "fournier"
@Perk has a lot of value screw the numbers. nick hit a big 3 for us in the playoffs. totally worth it.
@GREENE1148 i'd much rather have ross. lamb looks the part but his on court production has been eerily similar to evan fournier.
@Perk has a lot of value but he's gonna shoot 3's this year!
@GREENE1148 im not worried about randle as long as we have serge. serge makes blake griffin look pretty ordinary.
@GREENE1148 lamar was pretty one handed too. but he definitely had more versatility to his game than randle even though randle seems to be a tad more athletic.
@GREENE1148 randle had problems finishing over length in college. and there are tons of longer athletic defenders in the nba. it's like how blake griffin can have issues with long post defenders, only randle's significantly worse at everything than blake.
@Barry Amanema i'd be more "concerned" about russ's long term viability with his knee than kd's foot. both guys are gonna get the max on their next deals, but kd's game seems like it'll be more sustainable over the long haul (i see him leveling out like dirk) than russ. kd's more skilled than russ, and russ's game depends more on nuclear athleticism that might begin to wane before his second deal is up.
@Stephen Jackson is not about this spelling no more than 35 mpg.
i hope there's a similar plan like last year where russ sits on some back to backs. it's a long season, and even though kd's gonna miss games, i'm worried that russ is going to be burned out before the playoffs.
@McLasch to be fair, if you're a lakers fan and you've been watching nothing but jordan hill and robert sacre, you're going to be excited about julius randle.
@GREENE1148 lamar wasn't really a post up guy. or a jump shooter. made most of his plays off the dribble. i feel like randles the same way. odom was an ok rebounder, and that seems to be randles best trait. lamar was a significantly better passer/playmaker than randle though.
@_justin gm's are always looking at the long term. coaches/players/fans the short term.
@GREENE1148 he reminds me of a worse passing/handling, slightly more athletic lamar odom.
@rednuht agree. they should get another year to be be fully evaluated. but i'm not expecting any drastic changes either though.
@rednuht it's not that reggie isn't special or valuable. it's more that he wants to be paid and have a role befitting a starter at pg. as good as he is, he'll never be that on our team because of russ. that's ok to me--young up and coming guys want to prove themselves and their value, and often have to go to worse teams to do that if they're not elite guys.
@rednuht in an ideal world, i'd agree. but history tells us that almost no young guy takes less money on his first extension than what the market offers. and when you combine that with presti's m.o. for maintaining leverage, i'd be shocked if things just work out.
@Perk-Punt if perry/lamb flatline at the level they're at now, would it even be worth it to offer them extensions besides their familiarity with our system?
@rednuht @Perk-Punt @yarkmu i like reggie, and would like to keep him, but guys like him aren't super rare to find. brandon knight can do alot of what reg does. pre-injury lou williams is another similar type. young mo williams. jerryd bayless. reggie's at worst equivalent or better than all of those guys, but if he's dead set on wanting a bigger role/salary than what presti offers him, im not going to lose sleep over it.
@Perk-Punt yep, adams is more important to me than reg simply because of our need at that position. reggie will always be a better scorer than adams, but we already have westbrook.
@rednuht if kd weren't injured, i think i'd try until oct 31st or whenever that cuttoff for extensions is to resign reg. otherwise i'd deal him. but since kd's out, i think i'd be a bit more hesitant to make any big moves.
@Perk-Punt but no one's gonna want iggy at that salary when his athleticism/health seems to be in decline.
@GREENE1148 @yarkmu yep. that's a great comparison for him. diaw was great in phoenix and now in san antonio, but horrid in charlotte.
@Perk-Punt the warriors would be idiots to let him walk if they could lock him in at 8.5.
@rednuht i'm not sure if he'll be satisfied to remain in the role that benefits our team the best. obviously, if he was ok to be the supersub/occasional fill in starter for something like 8.5 million, you resign him immediately. but i think he wants more money/minutes and won't be happy if he doesn't get those things.
@GREENE1148 if he can shoot 36% from 3 this year, how much do you think he goes for on the open market?
@Perk-Punt they might, if he sucks again this year. all the talk about starting him over iggy and playing him with the starters is so he doesn't have to do anything besides catch and finish.
@Perk-Punt i think right now, i'd rather have draymond. he's short for a 4, but long arms and strong enough to guard most pf's in the league capably. was a big reason the warriors were able to take the clips to seven games last year imo. i guess it'll depend on how much his shooting improves, but i'd rather keep him long term over david lee/harrison barnes if i were the warriors.
@Perk-Punt haha. i love draymond. dude is gonna get PAID next year.
@rednuht if reggie demands something in line with bledsoe, i'd definitely trade him. that's way too much money for a borderline starter (on our team).
@rednuht with reggie being locked into his rookie deal, and kd being out, there's no need to do something this drastic now. but if he asks for too much, or is unhappy about his role, maybe something to revisit later. middleton might have less of a role this year with giannis taking up alot of wing minutes, and jabari swinging between the 4 and 3 positions too.
@rednuht yeah, it's probably too drastic a move to make when durant's gonna miss games. i've just been keeping tabs on kris and wanted to concoct a scenario where we could pick up another shooter.
@rednuht the hope would be middleton could start for us at the 2, bringing more 3 pt shooting than roberson, with passable defense. and yeah, bayless functioning in the role that reggie played last year, with maybe 3/4's of reggie's effectiveness.
@claeys yeah. i just thought they might be open to giving up middleton because they drafted a legit 3 and D guy in damien inglis this year, who seems to have a higher ceiling than middleton. then again, reggie essentially duplicates what they already have in brandon knight--combo guard that's more adept at making plays for himself than others.
@McLasch agree. reggie's significantly better than either of those two guys, but he's gonna demand alot of money and seems to want a bigger role than what he'll likely get.
if milwaukee were amenable and reggie demands too much money/minutes, would you trade him for khris middleton/jerryd bayless? middleton shot over 40% from 3 last year, is young and cheap, and was a starter for them for a bunch of games last year. bayless plays similarly to reggie, albeit worse. but he wouldn't cost as much and would be satisfied to be a primary scorer off the bench.
i kinda wanted him in okc
1 month, 1 week ago on Video: Sign right here, Russ
@Lambaaaaaa @yarkmu @[weed wolf faction] yep, can't be bush-leaguing it
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Steven Adams, New Zealand ambassador to America
@[weed wolf faction] buffet spreads in the locker-room, plane, and bus
if someone wants to leave, then they'll find reasons to leave. and vice versa. presti needs to focus on winning playoff games. after that, it's really out of his hands.
@Julius F Wrek @yarkmu thank youuuuuuuu

does anyone have that amazing edited pic of cp3 and blake flopping in the fore and back ground?
@OBoy (LaFamilia) hard to imagine the org risking their reputation for all future draft picks and free agents on a project. he's gonna get his guaranteed deal, even if he sucks imo.
let's sign pau gasol! (i'm bored, and pau's always good for drama on dt)
