  1. Summer League Thread

    I was saying these things more in a general sense, not based on one half of a summer league game
  2. Summer League Thread

    I feel like Ayton is sort of a finished product at this point, while Bamba is still a work in progress...especially on the offensive end. But if Bamba can continue adding weight and become a legitimate 3-pt threat, his upside is off the charts
  3. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Oh crap. Bamba pooped his pants
  4. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Yes! And the trade gets announced during the summer league game for max impact!
  5. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    And I've already acknowledged that, like three times now. Lol
  6. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    I thought I acknowledged that in my previous post? Its still not a good "real-life" comp IMO
  7. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Like I said, I know little to nothing about CARMELO. It's some sort of algorithm that spits out comps based on numbers apparently. I just don't see anything, having watched both players, that looks similar (besides perhaps the numbers)
  8. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Yes, I'm 43 and have watched college basketball my whole life. I've been educated on the CARMELO comps and I understand that they are purely numerically speaking. And yes, Oden was a stiff and always looked like a 10 year NBA veteran to me. His knees seem to back that up
  9. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    I literally see no similarities. Oden was stiff and had no touch. More of a back to the basket, throw back guy. He was pretty much the complete opposite of Bamba
  10. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Right. And I'm wondering why?
  11. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Huh?
  12. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Jesus, Bamba's comps make no sense. AD, Favors, Oden? WTF??
  13. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    But Rozier would likely be significantly better than what’s available late lottery/mid first round
  14. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Thanks. Mine does too now. It didn't yesterday
  15. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Is our game today at 5:00 on ESPN2 or NBATV? I don’t see it listed on either channel (DirecTV).

    5yr/110 and call it a day
  17. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    So TR is a RFA next summer? I thought it was two years out? We need to find a way to get him. He's the perfect PG for this team with his defense and emerging shooting/offense
  18. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Then go all in for Terry Rozier that summer
  19. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    He’s not. He’s a Mario replacement. AG isn’t going anywhere
  20. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Ayton was almost consensus #1. His floor is higher but Bamba's ceiling is higher IMO. Everyone has been on Doncic for two years and Atlanta is hoping for Curry 2.0. Memphis has Marc Gasol so Bamba is duplicate talent. It was pretty much an equal mix of lack of fit and luck that Atl and Dal made a deal. Otherwise Bamba goes #5 to Dallas and they get the steal of the draft
  21. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    The perfect PG for us plays for the C's and is a FA in two years. His name is not Kyrie either
  22. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Or 1. Honestly, he could easily be the best player in this draft class 3 years from now
  23. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Perfect. We'll happily match anything just north of $20M
  24. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Everyone thinks it whether they say so or not
  25. Draft day thread

    Fantastic
