    Love how vocal Simmons is. He really is in the ear of players if things are dropping off. And Biz hitting a mid range fadeaway J over Jeff Green earlier on has made my whole night already :)

    It was just a random poster saying "his source said that they got into an altercation that led to Biyombo punching hm in the face" Most likely a load of nonesense.

    A lot of players looked rusty. Isaac played fairly well on both ends, good 1st game for him, certainly seems to have a good basketball IQ. Biggest suprise was how confident Hezonja was, more of that please.

    Fournier said he's looking forward to wearing the 92 retro jersey so looks like that is the 4th one?

    Why is Hezonja in this and not Isaac . . .
  7. 2017 Official Offseason Thread

    So I thought Khem Birch was signed as well but have heard nothing since? No way he gave up guaranteed money in Europe. Are they trying to negotiate a buyout or just waiting to announce him after a potential trade. We seem to have a lot of players at the minute so something is definitely cooking in the background but then no trade rumours have leaked regarding us as well. New FO is keeping things very close to their chest, I guess that's a good thing but dammit, just one little tiny leak would be nice. I have no idea what is going on right now lol.
  8. 2017 NBA Draft Thread

    Now it's settled down a bit, was a little disappointed no one in the top 5 slipped. Would loved to have got Tatum or Fox, that last win last season really did bite us. Isaac was the obvious choice for me at 6 so fairly happy they went with it, he can easily end up the best player in this draft. We needed to go high bust high reward to try and get that star player, hopefully Isaac becomes that and not a bust, will enjoy watching his development over the next 4 years. Was not on the band wagon for Smith Jnr thought he would go at best 8th so no idea why people saying he slipped he was picked around where he should be imo. Very relieved we stayed clear of Monk, guy has bust written all over him for me, don't see him being anything other than a scoring bench player/6th man and at best a volume starting scorer that offers little else. Will now sit and be patient and see what trade rumours start surfacing over the next few weeks within the team, fully expect us to be in the running for a top 3 pick next year if not much changes so can understand why some posters are frustated after having to endure the last 5 years!

    Not sure if he has declared or not yet but I think someone takes a punt on him before our 2nd 1st if he does. His wingspan was 6"11.25 as well lol. Very high risk pick but someone is definitely going to take a chance on him.

    Just read that Diallo's vert was measured at 44.5 really would have liked him with our 2nd 1st.

    Handles are an issue, over dribbles and isn't that great in the half court which worries me with Vogels style of play. I think he has similar issues with Payton in terms of his effort levels and consistency as well. Just to be clear - I think he will be a solid draft pick and if we take him at say 8/9, I would be pretty ok with that, I think he still ends up being better than Payton. I just think Fox has him beat in a lot of areas and while we are picking at 5, Fox, Tatum and Monk are much better options IMO.
  12. 2017 NBA Draft Thread

    Pretty much this. I think Tatum is the one I have talked myself into hoping we take if we stay at 5 and he is still there. I think he would be best pick and best fit. I just can't make my mind up with Fox, he's so so similar to Payton. Question is do we get the top end version that Payton was projected to be or do we get a version that is only marginally better or even the same? I think I would pick him over Monk if Tatum was gone already and take the chance. One thing I do know is that I definitely don't want Smith Jnr if we pick at 5. He should only be in discussion if we drop in the lottery next month, just too many question marks with him for me personally. First draft in a long time where I'm unsure who my personal favourite to pick is. Slightly worried on who will be making the final decisons come draft day (Please not Vogel!)
  13. Magic at Nets Game Thread

    Watched the game. Starters all played fairly well again especially Payton and AG. Our bench was even worse than usual which I didn't think was possible considering how bad it already was. Really hope these later draft picks can provide any sort of depth because right now there are only 2 bench players worth keeping around and even they have issues (maybe Meeks if you can resign him dirt cheap and he can actually stay healthy.) I just don't see how we manage to trade away DJ with the contract he has, you can see why he gets bounced from team to team. Hennigan really made some poor free agent signings this season that are going to handicap us this summer :(

    76ers up 13 at the half, really hope I wake up to find out they won.

    Pistons so bad tonight I think even the Lakers and Brooklyn would have thrashed them.
