    Highest eFG% and TS% on that list. Those threes will change those numbers once he evens out. It’ll be interesting to see if he can keep the scoring output up once that happens.

    Bballbreakdown just posted this Aaron Gordon video.
  3. ROY Watch Thread

    I voted for Tatum simply because I don’t *want* Simmons to be that good (but I know he is).
  4. 2017-2018 Official Season Discussion Thread

    Think about how much you don’t want Biyombo on this team, money not even a factor. I mean, we are talking about not even wanting him in the rotation. Now think about Jeff Green and how bad his contract felt, and that we couldn’t even trade him at the deadline. Now comsider Jeff Green’s contract +2m and three years instead of one. That’s Biyombo. If you are another team, what does it take for you to bring in that contract?

    See, I think of Portland overachieving after they lost Aldridge and Matthews to free agency. AG, Fournier, Simmons, and Vuc stepped up to be about as good altogether as Lillard and McCollum.

    You’ve said this so many times already, haha. Yeah, Biyombo needs to be offset by young, cheap talent. Mario isn’t enough to offset both him and Augustine. Either needs picks added (that helps offset his 17m cap hit), Isaac included, or taking back an equally bad contract.

    It’s such a ridiculous thing. And I had it in mind while watching highlights from the Clips-Blazers game, and seeing how much time Griffin held onto the ball in comparison. Gordon took over when no one else was getting buckets, but recognized when others were hitting again in the fourth. If anything, I’d say he wasn’t aggressive enough at the end of the game, but I can’t fault him for conserving energy when he’s also our best defensive player.
  8. Official Game Thread : Magic vs Nets Part 2

    It’s the Magic version of GSW lineup of death, but more like lineup of mortal wounding.

    Bump, in case this was missed and it's possible to change.
  10. 2017-2018 Official Season Discussion Thread

    I don't have a problem with it. Rest is important and especially as guys get older, finding that space to heal up is important over a long season. Redick said something similar awhile ago, how early on he didn't rest much in the offseason and it had an effect on him when he didn't have the energy midway through the season because he didn't give his body time to adjust.

    Quick question. Before, the mobile version of the forum would quick jump to the first unread post in a given thread. Now it only goes to whatever page you select. Is there a way to get back to how it was? Makes keeping up on convos a lot easier if I miss some things, especially once the season is under way.
  12. 2017 Official Offseason Thread

    Well, that's good. And it's good that they're expanding the coaching staff. Hopefully, this will help Vogel figure out how to adjust to the new NBA.
  13. 2017 Official Offseason Thread

    Well, that was weird.
  14. 2017 Official Offseason Thread

    On/Off TS% of teammates for Elfrid.

    Made me think of this article from awhile ago, https://bballbreakdown.com/2015/11/02/nik-vucevic-modern-post/

    And apparently, there's confidence that D. Wade will go to Cleveland after a buyout from Chicago.
  18. 2017 Official Offseason Thread

    I think the argument is for Isaac becoming a good shooter, not Payton.
  19. Living in Orlando

    I know a guy moving to Orlando. He's going to be working at the airport and will need a place to live. He's just looking for a one bedroom apartment or something easy that won't be too hard to commute. I'm from Tampa, so I don't really know the area well. Any suggestions?
  20. Living in Orlando

    Ah, okay. I didn't know that. Thanks for the heads up. I'll pass it along
  21. Living in Orlando

    Good to know. Are there any specific neighborhoods/areas to look at, or will it be pretty much the same across the board?

  23. 2017 Official Offseason Thread

    How many possessions did he have those 4 turnovers out of?
  24. 2017 Official Offseason Thread

    So Irving on the Magic could be like Rose on the Bulls? This is just a face value comparison, but it seems like the best comparison... maybe AI's Sixers?
  25. 2017 Official Offseason Thread

    It could be both/and. AG was a project when we went after Milsap. Vogel likes playing big and we had too many to make room for AG at the 4 after the Biz/Ibaka offseason.
