  1. 2017-2018 Official Season Discussion Thread

    Bump, in case this was missed and it's possible to change.
  2. 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.

    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.

    Well, that was weird.

    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.

    I think the argument is for Isaac becoming a good shooter, not Payton.
  11. 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?
  12. Living in Orlando

    Ah, okay. I didn't know that. Thanks for the heads up. I'll pass it along
  13. 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?

    How many possessions did he have those 4 turnovers out of?
  16. 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?
  17. 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.

    Hennigan did a good job collecting unknowns with potential and an okay job signing free agents. His problem was making trades for known quantities. He couldn't get good value for the assets he collected when it came time to cash in. That's my assessment.
  19. 2017 Official Offseason Thread

    Maybe it points to a trade involving Vuc?
  20. Who has the best hair?

    Yeah, I actually really like the dreads look. But there is something to say about practicality of hair in sports. Like, I don't think (offensive) NFL players should have long hair because it gives an extra thing to grab for tackles.
  21. Who has the best hair?

    How about tied back dreads a la Faried?

  23. Meet The Jedi(s) - Jonathan Isaac & Jonathan Simmons

    Can't we just stop putting an s at the end of Jedi? Like, I don't care about the rest of what's going on in this thread. It's just really getting to me.
  24. Meet The Jedi(s) - Jonathan Isaac & Jonathan Simmons

    It kind of makes sense for Isaac if you use "jed" to signify the letter "j" then put the "i" for Isaac. Jed-I. Simmons is a stretch. Either way, any nickname should flow naturally. And it was noted earlier, but the plural of jedi is jedi.
  25. 2017 Official Offseason Thread

    I guess this all depends on whether you think McCollum is someone a team can build around. It also means betting big on the development of Isaac and AG.
