    Magic Vs. Raptors - Friday, April 19th at 7:00 P.M.

    It is a nice story and I want to get on board with that, but I don’t think the depth you mentioned (current team minus vuc plus fultz and pick) is enough to make the playoffs. we could repeat a 7th or 8th seed, but it would take a big improvement from bamba (I don’t see it happening as fast as it was with Isaac) and decent performances by fultz - pick (I won’t believe it until I see it) the reality is that vuc was the heart and soul this season, and his all star campaign is the main reason we qualified (clifford, Isaac’s leap and ross are the others)

    I wouldn’t mind if we are without vuc, Fournier and ross next season as it is, bamba Isaac and Gordon are the future along with hopefully fultz and the Sg we get in the draft i can deal with 2 more year out of the playoffs if we start building a contender

    Leonard looked like Kobe yesterday his penetration and jumper at the top of the key is unstoppable our whole defense was atrocious, we didn’t even contest any shots, we did not get pressure, we let easy penetrations flow for them vuc has looked awful both games, siakam feasted on isaac, dj was not at his best hoping for a ferocious rant from Clifford so they wake up for the next game we need to have way more intensity and much better defense

    Great win dj has been doing this all season long. Nice defensive play by Fournier at the end. And also important buckets and rage by MCW woke us up

    Then he extended Fournier with a big contract while gifting oladipo AND #11 to okc he set us back for many years the ross trade was his only great deal

    I think it is a better player than Tristan dont forget Paul, Westbrook, Porzingis anyway, the whole point was that drafting him cannot qualify as a great decision because he has not panned out as a great player yet and because we could have probably fared better with a lower pick and another starter

    He traded who at the moment was a perennial all star and 2 time Dpoy for some guys, and one of them became all star after 6 seasons.

    Yes, but not by much. The hypothetical scenario talked about gordon (4th pick) or a lower pick with a starter in a trade (for example lavine) Gordon is good. But he is not an all star nor he has shown that he is capable of being the #1 weapon of the team. As a top 5 pick, you could expect that

    I said there were good players after him Meaning, in a hypothetical scenario of a trade down for an established player, we could have ended up with lavine, Gary Harris, nurkic, bogdanovic, randle, capela and a starter, and it would not have been much different than what it is now gordon was a regular pick, not one praise worthy by far his only good move was the ross trade if gordon realizes his potential down the road, it might be a debate, but currently (as gordon is now) it was not fantastic value for a #4 pick

    Clifford for COY

    Best win improvement in the whole league did this with basically the same team of last season minus Simmons converted vuc into an all star and ross into a possible 6th man candidate signed mcw off the street and was key to the final run beat every big team he deserves it

    dj has been great i am still not sold on iwundu, though. he does not impress me at all, like other rotation players had.

    2018-19 Official Season Discussion Thread

    I dont see gordon as a great pick we had the 4th, and he is not an all star. there were even good players selected afterwards getting vuc...he was trading a perennial all star and DPOY. he got a fair deal now, with ibaka about to leave for free and the team in disarray, getting ross and 2 picks was good, even if the picks are not high at all again, only good thing hennigan ever did in his life

    so, at the beginning it looked like oladipo's trade was one of the worst ever. In the end it was: - we send oladipo and sabonis - we receive ross and a protected 1st and 2nd round pick in 2020 it is still bad, but not as bad as it was before the only good thing craphennigan ever did was that trade to the raptors

    ross has been averaging 27 ppg during the last 4 games, while shooting over 60% fg in 3 of those 4 games

    It will be difficult to keep both of them Hopefully we can keep them both, ross for 4-5 years and vuc with a 2-3 years contract If I have to select only one, would let vuc go and keep ross, but just because of bamba and the money that vuc is going to command. because clearly he is the heart and soul of this team now. It is a shame that it took 6 years and many coaches for vuc to finally turn it on

    Clifford for COY

    It is good to hear that the players like him. I think it should be between him and the guy in brooklyn
