An arguement for royce's balanced reporting is he actually knows/has to regularly deal with Scott brooks and the thunder organisation. That would become extremely uncomfortable if you were a regular person (aka not squirt gun skip) who was constantly criticising/belittling/calling them stupid in the media

Why? Gay is a 20 million expiring this year that no one will trade for and sacremento will suck badly. Dude is getting a buyout. And no team needs a SF more then the clippers. Their depth hart is matt Barnes (injured)!and joe ingles

I feel good about neither of those. Especially since the clippers are odds on favourites to get Rudy gay for the playoffs

On the over unders. I'd take the cavs over. They are going to destroy teams with small ball and they play in the east. They will probably play 140-120 games most nights

I hate the idea of a Russ, reggie, morrow KD serge lineup it's basicLly the fisher 3 guard lineup except morrow is a much better shooter. Can't presti sign a 6'8 guy who can shoot ( it might be huestis but that's the future)

But if you check reggie vs the spurs he kills them. He's also better then tony Parker, he's just less consistent

The player comparison. That I like the most for reggie is Gilbert arenas except other better defense. He's the type of guy who's so driven to be great that he's working his ass off to get there.

In college he eventually shot 40% from 3 and I'd expect him to be able to do something similar in the nba, so once he fixes his shot he's a 6'3 pg with a wingspan big enough to guard any pg and SG in the nba. He finishes extremely well at the rim and now he's basically a 50/40/90 guy with a lightning first step. He's not harden (best SG in the nba) but he's easily a top 10 pg and possibly top5 in the. Ext 2 years

Except the offense only improved because perry was a capable shooter. He didn't do much else. Surely someone like morrow or lamb could get the same offensive benefits without the defensive trade off. Especially since during his limited minutes at SF perry was good both offensively and defensively

Ugh stats don't show how horrible perry was at trying to defend opposition SG's and anyone who can hit a corner 3 is going to be very effective with KD Russ/reggie and serge

If you think that's good. You should check out one of Perry's other lineups where he was at SF. It had a 73 drt and a 120ish ort

I'm not so sold on the pelicans, if only because I can't see 4 teams from the southwest making the playoffs and I have the spurs, grizz and Mavs all as legit top 4 teams in the west although one will finish 5th because the clipper have an easier schedule.

That leaves the Mavs spurs griz thunder blazers and clippers as my top 6. Realistically the final 3 spots will be between GSW, Phoenix who had a sneaky good offseason and have great roster balance assuming health. And Denver who are finally playing healthy and mile high is worth 5 extra wins as a home court which should help them rise above some of the other contenders

That's unfair to the blazers and Mavs. Blazers because the northwest is soft compared to every where else and Mavs because they got much better during the offseason

No. They are also out of my playoffs picture. I just don't see any division getting 4 playoff teams and the west is stacked

Edit. I have them at 9 or 10 and just missing out but they could easily be much worse then that if harden or Dwight (mainly harden) gets hurt they have no one else on their roster who can create their own shot

It would all depend what you could get in a trade if reggie could fetch you a Brandon Jennings, oj mayo type guy and Russ could fetch you wiggins/Exum plus multiple first round picks hypothetically the savvy move would be to trade Russ.

I personally think Russ is the best pg in the nba and off the table in any trade discussions. But if New Orleans offered say Davis and holiday for Russ and serge would you turn that down?

In reply to glenda's massive multiple part post

Okc saying they really love reggie to the media is less of a statement of how much they love reggie and more of a statement to the other gm's in the league that they won't trade him for the current lowball offers they are getting, since behind closed doors almost everyone is on the trading block

Also with all this playoff 8 seed talk don't sleep on Denver. They have a deep team a good PG, and the best home court advantage in the league.

I think the rockets will be on the outside looking in, but honestly any of the top 12 teams in the west could make the playoffs if everything goes right/they make a good and reasonable trade.

I think that ibaka (OKC's closing center since 2009) is more likely to get those minutes. How many minutes McGary plays will be determined by his 1 on 1 post defense

I could see both sides, but I tend to grade players by position so top 25 means being a top 5 center or PF. Serge definitely makes a massive defensive impact so it might be fair to rate him that high but then you have guys like Davis, Aldridge , Jefferson, boogie, Noah who play that role. As for Kyrie he's not above Russ, cp3, curry, wall Parker, Bledsoe Lawson and other guys who have made their teams better
