    2019 NBA Draft Thread

    That's something we haven't talked much about. Who are the guys we could realistically move up for and what would it take to do so? Anyone with any fun ideas?

    Not sure what that has to do with making shots and playing decent defense but ok.

    This was 10 years ago. How relevant is that team now compared to today's NBA? Once you reach the 20 ppg range you fall into guys who are really good but not what I consider #1s. But looking at the scoring leaders I can see the arguement but still lean towards 20+ guys are the guys who are true #1s and not just #1s cuz #1s are hard to find. http://m.espn.com/nba/leagueleaders?src=desktop

    Well you said 20 so that's what I was responding to. 25+ seems more in line with a #1. I'm not sure if either gets to that point but I'd gladly take it.

    Don't think a 20 PPG guy can be considered a #1 option. They both could develop to be #2s.

    Great game! Lopez is exactly what we needed from Vuch. Smh....

    Yep lines up perfect for them. They are in the drivers seat now.

    That dynamic is going to be so fun to watch play out.

    Yea I don't know why but those two teams are easily interchangeable for me. Plus the stress of my wife being gone for two days while I tend to our two boys one of which is sick...not really in the right frame of mind. Interested to see what happens Sunday.

    The Rockets are such a disappointment. Utah has the best chance to beat GS no? Jokic has to me a nightmare for anyone to guard on GS.

    Best player in the league in my opinion. If I'm starting a team from scratch Kawhi is my first pick.

    That's actually quite surprising. I don't know how to feel about him. On one end he is the exact player that we need; Offense, defense, apparent clutch gene. On the other I still don't know how different any of the teams he's played on are without him. In the end I'm all for winning and adding Jimmy is an obvious talent improvement. If his attitude is the one negative then sign me up today. What does the starting lineup look like Jimmy Gordon Issac seems a bit clustered. Jimmy at the "2"?

    What difference has Jimmy made on a team? I have nothing but the eye test to back this up but he just doesn't resonate as a difference maker to me. Are the 6ers significantly any better with him? Minny lost 11 more games this year but was that a Jimmy thing? I don't even mind that he's a jerk he just doesn't seem like a number one guy to me.

    Fair enough. I'm fine with were we are and definently don't want any parts of Butler. Klay is just the type of guy that is a perfect fit and would certainly keep us as competitors in the East for years to come. Sucks the timing isn't right.

    I understand it's unlikely sometimes FA is just weird. What were the circumstances for landing Lewis? Off of memory how often does a better than average talent pick a team/city like ours?

    2019 Offseason Thread

    Besides staying with GS what are these other teams you mention? I guess the larger question is why not us? Especially for a guy with multiple ships already.

    Am I wrong in thinking that Martin is an adequate 3rd center? We all love Birch but using Martin in that role changes very little for us.

    I think the only way a player like Briscoe or MCW even matter to us next year is if Fultz is just completely done. They're so meaningless in the grand scheme of things. I rather focus on bringing in some bench scoring and/or a big man depending on what we do with Vuch.

    So basically if we present him with a solid offer he would at the very least be intrigued. I'm fine with that.

    Don't get me wrong all of the guys listed would be fine it just doesn't make sense to sign JJ when Ross is 6 years younger and provides relatively equal production.
  25. TheNameIsOrlando

    2019 Offseason Thread

    I don't see much of a difference between any of them besides Brogdon but he's restricted, JJ is old, and Bogdanovic is worst in almost every advanced metric. I don't see an obtainable clear upgrade to Ross out there.
