    Pretty big assumption by whomever this is to state that they only realised at the deadline that they should blow it up. These people seem to not realise sometimes you have to do things you don’t want to do because your employer mandates it (I.e 2 playoff births). if they couldn’t see it wasn’t going to get any better they never should have had the job in the first place.

    Surely if we plan on keeping him - one of Harris or Ross is on the move before the start of the season, right?

    So I know it's really early and I am very excited to see this team have a crack at winning a few games this year, but is it out of line to start watching videos and getting on the hype train for someone like Jaden Hardy or Paolo Banchero

    Comments section culture. Endemic of social media's current formatting in that if you want to be involved you have to say something, but if you want to say something you risk looking silly when you're not really involved. Man, I hate society. Not the place for this I know

    It'll be even better if a few times the other two guys they share the court with aren't known/big offensive players either so we can see them forced into picking between them. We've been waiting so long for a scoring breakout. Probably why we all got so excited with some of Cole's outburst's last year.

    San Antonio got in very quickly with that too. In principle he was probably attainable, god knows what the Spurs are rushing to achieve out there.

    After seeing the Pelicans acquire Devonte Graham for four years and given what else is transpired, maybe we can be candidates for the impending Zion sweepstakes of 2024/25 or whenever he asks out. It'd be the first big time free agent that we could get clear for a run at that would actually make sense with the guys we are developing for the future

    Yeah I posted that then looked at the schedule. Oh well, the season is almost upon us and it couldn't come soon enough!

    No-one is going to argue that our shooting has been atrocious, and neither am I. I don't know what others are thinking either, but anyway. If we kept the band together for lack of a better way to put it, I doubt we would have gone after Robinson either way due to having Evan as it is a little bit of a wash, but at the same time if it was within the realm of possibility it may have been an upgrade. Having said that, neither then nor now we don't need to commit long term money to a complimentary shooter, whether it is a good deal or not. If someone whose role is to run around the perimeter and shoot wanted to be here for the vet minimum, then sure. But clearly that wasn't going to be Robinson (who probably also knows he won't get it as good anywhere else but Miami) and it remains to be seen if JJ doesn't want to contend or seek money. I don't think the FO is actively avoiding those guys but there probably just aren't that many who want to make the minimum and spin their tyres here.

    Why on earth would we want to go and spend all of that money on a complimentary piece when we are still finding out who our centerpiece is. A guy like that is fine if you are setting yourself in stone but not worth that pay day for us when we are looking for maneuverability over the next few years.

    I love all these "we need to go and get x player" as if the actual player doesn't have any agency in this decision also. Of course it is nowhere near as bad on here as FB and reddit.
