@Chandler Bing(GIVE US PERK BACK FACTION) They actually take a couple of minutes. It's a classic move for a reason.

@okcjim @b1walker That's more of a later career move for Kobe, earlier in his career, at Russ's age, he was most effective on the drive.

I think people completely discounting Russ's chance at the MVP are wrong. I don't think he'll get it, because I don't think he will sustain this level of play and winning, but the narrative is already growing, and that's all you need. If we win the next 7 games or something with KD out and Russ keeps playing like this? I think he'd have moved into frontrunner status. Curry and Harden could also split the vote among those who think he didn't play enough games.

@okcjim @King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW LeBron is way more efficient than Russ is, which is the big difference imo. Kobe and Russ are both relatively inefficient (relative to all time greats), high volume explosive scorers who can also do everything else on the court at a way above average level. Kobe's perimeter shot has always been a bit overrated.

@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW Durant has some (as I blasheme) Jordan to his game offensively, being a much better shooter and much worse off the dribble. Jordan was much more effective overall, but Durant is in the same stratosphere. Obviously, defensively Jordan was infinitely better.

@Mother Teresa @King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW Gervin is stylistically similar, but not nearly as effective as Durant.

@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW Yea, Bird was a way better passer and KD is a better scorer.

@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW Not too hard you'd think, the contracts aren't that long or onerous, and their mostly the kind of guys a team would take a shot on in a rental to see if they fit.

The Russ to Kobe comparison is pretty uncanny. Wish there was as clear a comparison for Durant, but he's a truly unique player given the volume and efficiency with which he scores. I feel like Bird is the closest, but even that has huge differences in their games.

@d21 (That's wassup) @mattchant Next year, if we keep Kanter, I can't imagine being under the tax. But the following year the cap could jump big time and save us, if I'm understanding this correctly? Then again, if the cap does that, won't that put Durant in line for an astronomical extension which would eat into the new room significantly?

@Cray Allred @mattchant @Jax Raging Bile Duct Agreed, so I'm wondering what other moves we'll likely make to avoid it.

@ou_sas @mattchant @d21 (That's wassup) I don't think 4/40 gets it done necessarily, that's just a bare minimum number in my opinion.

@Jax Raging Bile Duct @mattchant I could see us paying the tax this year and next, but I think the repeater is going to be a hard no go. I'm just curious as to how the numbers all add up.

@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW They don't have the star power, or the playoff experience. When you're staring down LeBron or Durant in a 2 point game with 2 minutes to go in a playoff game, I don't think they're pulling it out with any consistency.

If the organization actually makes the size-able commitment necessary to keep Enes Kanter longterm, and I can't imagine that happening for any less than something like 4-40, I will happily admit that I was wrong about Clay, and he is absolutely willing to spend what it takes to win.


Do people think this is realistic? What other moves could we realistically make over the summer to reduce the resulting tax burden? I just don't see this franchise staying in the repeater tax at a high number long term, but perhaps I'm wrong? Could the moving cap number keep us under the tax line even with a big Kanter extension for years 3 and 4, avoiding the repeater? I'd love to hear from some of the numbers guys here, like @d21 (That's wassup) and justin.

@Told you it Was Russ' Team Now *Tvaddic* This is why the players union always gets rolled. They pick stupid issues to fight about, and then the owners concede those issues in exchange for MONEY. The union plays checkers while the owners play chess.
