    What's the point of that? Won't make them anywhere close to good. If they can't add a couple of impact players around Dame, then they'll be wasting Dame's best remaining years.

    Iím not sure how Boston got 2 firsts out of the deal but good for them.

    Thatís a nice trade for Boston if KP can stay healthy. Gives them a lot of lineup flexibility and I think Smart is close to cooked so good time to sell. That said they are now banking on KP and Brogdan to be major contributors and they arenít exactly the vision of health and Horford is super old and still has to play a lot too.

    Problem is he is only good for 60-65 games per season though which by load mgmt. standards isn't awful. My concern is he had a tough time fitting as a 2nd option in Dallas as Luka is so ball dominant how is he going to fit in with Brown and Tatum. Also odd to see him opt in to the 36 million 1 yr deal given his injury history, makes me wonder if another deal is going to happen.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    FWIW, the other proposed deal floating around doesnít require the Mavs to give up their 1st round pick: THJ Jr, Bullock and McGee for Ayton.

    Either way, I am not sure that I would deplete their depth to land Ayton, intriguing pick-and-roll partner for Luka that he is. It just sounds like a Cuban type move.

    I found John Hollinger's take on Portland amusing:

    https://theathletic.com/4626572/2023...023-hollinger/

    The Blazers staying stuck in the Win It For Dame Twilight Zone remains one of the league’s most bizarre sub-plots. The obvious move for years now has been to trade Damian Lillard for a pile of assets and move forward, but the Blazers seem determined to learn absolutely nothing from the Bradley Beal Experience in Washington.

    Instead, they’re watching a potentially Paul Georgian trade return steadily shrivel while they pursue another year of competing for the first 60 games and tanking the last 20. Maybe they’ll wait a couple more years, until Lillard is 35 and has two years left at $60 million a pop, then trade him for two seconds and the rights to the fourth-best player in the Greek second division.
    ďThe guys we've had for the most part have been serviceable at this level.Ē

    That is exactly the direction they're heading.

    They blew any chance they had of rebuilding around Dame when they signed the Simons and Nurkic extensions. Now they've got two albatross contracts on guys nobody really wants (at least at their current prices). And they'll probably throw money at some combination of Grant, Reddish, Thybulle and Winslow, and then wonder why they keep getting the same results. Unless Sharpe goes supernova, none of what they're doing makes any sense.

    With the Warriors sending out picks too (2030 protected 1st and 2027 2nd). Good for the Wiz to kick the tires on Poole. Somebody's got to score for that team. Paul could be a sneaky good fit on the Dubs, and maybe playing only 20-25 minutes a night will keep him healthy.

    Word is Portland will draft Scoot and trade Lillard. I think itís the right direction for them.

    I like that CP3-Poole trade for both teams. Warriors moving Pooleís salary gives them a lot more flex in the next few years.

    Being honest, I think JA is just a punk wanna be and honestly shouldnt be in the NBA at all anymore, but I doubt that will be an issue, he will be dead soon do to his actions.
    So this is your opinion. Are we sure you want to stick with that. You the proclaimed gun nut says a quarter of a season isn’t enough for having a legal handgun in his position. I don’t want to make it political as I I will stop there , but you brag about all your AR15s but a legal handgun should get him kicked out of the nba. Wow.
