nothing would give me more joy than the lakers signing melo for a max deal this summer. hilarity ensues.
4 days, 18 hours ago on THTV: Steven Adams, a big find
was totally wrong at draft time about adams. i thought len would be this draft's best big.
@Sustainable Parameters @yarkmu @Aren't yeah that was a historically horrible run of picks. i believe sheldon williams (the landlord) out of duke was picked in that stretch too.

@Sustainable Parameters @Aren't i still think the hawks picking marvin williams over cp3 is worse than bennett or kwame. cp3 wanted to go to atl.
@tygablood pdx a tough place to play. no shame for indy in dropping a road game there. but still not convinced about the blazers yet.
trey burke had a pretty good game tonight
@dollarbillrussell @yarkmu yeah the west is a buzzsaw.
@dollarbillrussell @yarkmu i guess what i'm really saying is i'd rather play the pacers in the finals than miami
@dollarbillrussell @yarkmu true. he's a big question mark. but IF he comes back healthy, the pacers seem to have closed the gap with miami
indiana's gonna be fun to watch if granger's servicable
@Jooseppi i think bennett's better than he's showed. not sure if he's worthy of his draft spot, but he hasn't had any real conditioning because of his injury. and he missed training camp. that's hard for any rookie to overcome.

@ThunderBuddy julius randle is an athletic zbo. think about how effective zbo is as a scorer/rebounder without being able to jump. now add above average athleticism to the equation.
he's going to be a monster.
@ThunderBuddy @Turfright @ Luke no he's 6'9. there have been plenty of articles written about how small he is for a center. that's also why dwight's presented himself as an olajiwon type too, because hakeem was 6'9ish and still dominated in his era.
@f5alcon @ThunderBuddy some guys just aren't worth it when they exact such a heavy toll in cap space, style of play, chemistry. i wouldn't want melo on my team for free tbh. same for dwight.
i don't think you can win with melo as your number 1 guy. too many holes in his game.
i do think you could win with him being the number 2. but the number 1 would have to be a strong presence that melo would defer to while also filling in some of his deficiencies, like a lebron.
melo's great when he's on team usa. all he has to do is make open jumpshots and crash the boards while not stopping the ball. anything beyond that though is asking too much imo.
@Lost Ones @yarkmu yeah, but the reason why you know this is because you watch every single game.
thabo has a reputation of being a stopper on defense for wings and point guards, and a 40% three point shooter for the past two years. that alone will net him a big deal this summer.

thabo's going to get paid this summer.
as much as we'd like to think his value's going to drop (since that would suit us) because of his mediocre shooting so far and lapses on defense, he's a valuable commodity with size at the 2 guard position, and he's still young-ish.
someone will overpay him, someone always does.
asik would be a great addition, just not on our team. our young guys need minutes to grow while they're on cheap deals.
@Turfright they're going to be monsters in the playoffs.
not too down about the loss last night. golden state is legit.
regular season games are one offs--it's not always indicative of how a team will fare in a playoff series.
glad to see thabo come alive on the offensive end. and russ. wow.
@IsaiahSmith1 @Dicharden this makes me so happy. it's the reverse of having to trade away guys because you can't afford them.
