    Probably need at least 1 more future pick, but could be wrong. would be hilarious to see Pop coaching Lonzo and having to deal with his dad.

    He was the best player on a 61 win team just two seasons ago. The best player on a champion contender. No single player guarantees a championship- heck, even the GSW roster of all-nba players doesn’t guarantee them a championship. A healthy Leonard is a player in the realm of Lebron, Durant, Curry, Anthony Davis, and Harden. Those are his peers. And you sure as heck would pay those guys anything they wanted to be on your team.

    Lol, biased much?

    And twice as turnover prone. I'm talking general ability and effect upon a team, not replication of skills.

    I think the realistic ceiling for Trae Young is Isaiah Thomas on the Celtics. Basically, at best I think he will be a very good offensive player whose defensive deficiencies make his actual impact difficult to ascertain.

    When healthy, he is a top 5-10 player in the league. Obviously, the current injury situation is worrisome , but you definitely pay that much to keep him. Last season the spurs won 47 wins with almost the same exact team as that won 61 games the year before. While some of that decrease is likely due to their aging players(Parker, Ginobili, Gasol in particular), much of it was due to missing Leonard. You wouldn't pay 219 million for a player that is worth half of the total wins of our team last year by himself?

    Leonard is exactly the type of player that is worth that.

    How would that team even work? PF Lebron, SF Kawhi, SG George? They are all basically SFs, even if they can move around a bit, right? It would be interesting if something like that happened. It would be a weird team, but probably better than any of them (minus Kawhi maybe) could currently be on. I also just don't get why Kawhi wants to leave so much. Reading over the rumors that have been going on, it seems like a bunch of much ado about nothing, a bunch of having issues for the sake of having issues. Of course we don't know what is really going on, but the situation just seems strange.

    Do they want to get rid of Ben McLemore? Or did you just throw him in for salary matching reasons?

    I don't have a problem with taking the bad contract. I have a problem taking a bad contract AND giving up a potentially valuable pick.
  12. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Wait, so I just read this thread starting with the potential Memphis trade, and am just wondering if you guys are crazy. Why would we trade any picks if we are taking back Parsons, almost no matter what the combination of players sent over is? Parsons has a bloated contract, a bad injury history, and is years removed from his last decent season. Taking him is the price for the pick. If you trade them Vuch and and Ross, they get out from under Parson's contract one year quicker, and likely still get the better players in the deal (of already NBA players.) If you trade Fournier and Mack, they get basically 11 million in immediate savings and a better player on a longer, cheaper, and more manageable contract in Fournier. Both trades would shore up their wing position with either Fournier or Ross, which, if they think a healthy Conley puts them back in the running for a playoff spot, would put them in a good position. They both also could save money for Memphis. Does Memphis do it? probably not. Should we do it? If we can get that deal, fine, but not if we are having to throw additional picks into the pool. At most, throw a second rounder in there.

    Yeah, don't mind someone else grabbing him, but please not us.
  14. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    I didn't want him to begin with, this just adds to the lack of desire to see him on the Magic.
  15. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Please no. Thanks.
  16. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    I would love that move.
  17. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    If it only costs us our two 2nd round picks this year, we should go for it. Then, spend a couple million, a la GSW getting Bell last year, to still get Simons in the second. (I like the idea of getting a high upside, but risky young player in the second round).
  18. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    It is interesting how Okobo has climbed the draft boards so much in the past month or so. From a good hidden gem in the second round to the ringer now having him go #19.
  19. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    I think I am ok with that. If we can get Bamba at 6, I think we hopefully got value for the pick. JJJ going only one pick higher though would make me a little sad. So close.
  20. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    I think our two best options, if available in this draft, would be either to move up or move down. Either get a Doncic, JJJ, or Ayton, or get more picks either now or in the future to have more chances to find players. At 6, it feels like we are just praying for one of those players to fall. The likely pool of players at 6 does not excite me or make me feel like we are likely getting value from that pick.
  21. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Ooof. I like Gordon, but I think that amount is pretty high. We are taking a big bet at 24 a year. That would be a top 40-50 contract in the league. At least it would be better than Wiggin's contract I guess?
  22. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    If either Doncic or JJJ are there, I would. Those are the guys I have been hoping for the most.
  23. Your boy Mauro is retiring

    Awesome to know work is going well for you. Any great pieces of design (outside of the sports stuff you have shown before) that you can share with the forum? I know the graphic design world can be tough so I will be rooting for you.
  24. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Unless a player from this group of 4 falls- Ayton, Doncic, JJJ, Bamba.
  25. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Lol. If they drafted him #1, that would be hilarious.
