    Lol Mauro starting to look like EP If Embiid and Simmons stay fit this season they will be good. If Fultz blends into the team quickly I can see them being 9 games better than us.

    Think they gave up too much, especially with that pick thrown in. Imagine if Kyrie walks after the 2 years as well. Cavs probably gotta move Love or TT? If Crowder starts at SF, James PF, Love will have to play center or be moved. Unless they have plans to bring Crowder off the bench.

    Ah, I was unaware. So was it a fake account?

    Did you guys see the tweet that Chris Broussard posted then shortly after deleted? Sources: Kyrie Irving is being traded to the Miami Heat in exchange for Goran Dragic, Justise Winslow and Bam Adebayo. Pick may be included.

    The Sixers are in such a better position than us going forward. The only thing that could balance that out a bit is recurring injuries to Embiid and Simmons (which wouldn't be their franchises fault). I don't rate Saric that much but he wasn't even included in the 3 players above (Embiid, Simmons, Fultz) and he was argued about whether we would trade him for the first player listed in our 3 best potential players.

    LOL Gallinari broke his thumb hitting another player in an Italian exhibition match. Will fit in nicely with Blake Griffin.
  7. Help me make some money on a bet!

    Cheers. That's actually a good point about the west scheduling. I think I should probably include the Suns, although they might be involved in the Kyrie trade. I think the Lakers may be another decent choice. I think the Pels do alright this season, not fantastic but for me it's hard to see us finishing with a better record unless they blow up the team before the deadline and trade Cousins before he can walk.
  8. Help me make some money on a bet!

    Yeah I was worried about that. I could probably wait for the Kyrie trade, I know he'd want the Knicks in the bet regardless.
  9. Hey guys. I'm wanting to propose a bet with a friend of mine and obviously I want it to be in my favor! Last season we had a bet on who would finish higher out of us and the Heat, that didn't turn out well so need to make it back. I already managed to squeeze a cheap head to head end of season standings between us and Brooklyn which I'm pretty happy about but I want to try and get some more bets with him, he won't take any more on that head to head, he might give me 2-1 odds on it though. The bet I'm wanting to propose is basically who will finish higher out of us and some other teams, $50 for each team the Magic finish above. The key here is picking the right teams for the bet, I want to include Brooklyn but I'm going to have to include a team that will get his attention. This basically comes down to who do you think we have a good chance of finishing above? I'm thinking of trying to include Brooklyn and Chicago then possibly Atlanta, Indiana, Phoenix and New York. I think my friend will take any combo of these teams so I don't really need to include anyone to get the bet over the line, I just need to pick whatever is in my favor. Also, he likes all kinds of bets, serious or fun so if anyone can think of some interesting bets to propose to him I'd be keen to hear them. EDIT: I'm also wanting to make this bet right now because I'm sensing a trade of some sorts that will make us a better team and effect the chances of getting this bet on with him.

    I can't believe some people think Mack is better than Payton. If Mack was a good 3 point shooter you could argue he'd be a better fit for the starting unit (Payton would still be the better player though). But he's not a good 3 point shooter (only slightly better than Payton) and won't even be considered to start over EP.

    From a pure basketball perspective Dwight is leaps and bounds better than Biyombo will ever be, and that's current injury riddled old man with a bad back Dwight. But having said that, if you factor in all the other stuff (lockeroom drama, public drama, on court drama, coach and management drama and his overall cancerous effect he can have on a franchise from the towel guys up to the owner) than I would rather have Biyombo, especially where we are as a franchise. If we were pushing for a championship and Dwight could be the difference than I think you have to consider him but we are so far from a contender I think I'd rather that poster above who is overweight and 6 foot backing up the 5.

    Great post, agree with everything you've said there.
  13. Paul George trade?????

    It's because George has made it clear he's not going to re-sign for anyone other than the Lakers. Indiana would have got a lot of weak trade offers and that must have been the best for them.
  14. 2017 Official Offseason Thread

    Yeah the Lakers can keep Randle and sign 2 max free agents if they get rid of Deng and Clarkson.

    I think that Boston-Philly trade can be a win-win for both franchises as long as Boston turns the added assets into one of the stars available (Butler, George, Hayward). If they don't, it's a bit of a risky move holding those picks. I think Philly did well because Fultz is what they need and they can't keep stockpiling picks, they had to make a move at some point or else they will risk the likes of Embiid and Simmons getting sick of losing and wanting to move on. Now they have an exciting core that they can move forward with and hopefully develop a bond. I'm jealous. For Boston, I think Tatum or Jackson will do more for them winning this season then Fultz, considering it looks like they are set on keeping IT. If they get one of those stars mentioned above then they will almost be a lock for top seed in the east and a great shot at a title.
