Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

How did Dion Waiters get included?

Dion has the same issues for the Heat especially after he got paid.

Wade was fine with Lebron, obviously not ideal but very good and wasn't an issue until Wade got old/injured.

Love/Bosh became 3rd options. Love's stats increased until he got hurt this year as 2nd option. Will need to see if Love resumes his Wolves self. Love's last year his average shot distance was 14.3 feet, for the Cavs it was 15 feet so not nearly as crazy as you may expect.

Kyrie was fine as a 2nd option with Lebron.

Mo had his best seasons with Lebron.

Most players as they go from defacto #1 options to 2nd or 3rd options aren't going to be nearly as efficient or effective at least by the stats. Do you think Curry/KD are holding Thompson back (his efficiency has decreased a ton especially in the playoffs)?

Would you give up OG?
It would be OG+Poeltl+Picks + JV/Ibaka for salary matching. If they want Siakam they get more picks (1 extra 29th overall pick) relative to OG. The other option is Powell, but he doesn't seem like a Spurs guy and they would need to match more salary I think still.

JV=less picks, Ibaka=more. I'd be willing to give up if that if there's a decent chance of him re-signing (>45%) and he's healthy

Kawhi to the Raptors is fun, is that package enough though?

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

If Lebron really wants another title in L.A and kawhi not in the cards this year. Next year they should try to steal Durant away from warriors before offering Kawhi. As that would weaken Warriors while getting close to an equal or possibly more talent than Kawhi.

If Durant says no than go sign Kawhi.

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

Tings I guess you were trying to trick everybody with your wizards being better than the Celtics but it was pretty disingenuous. Kyrie and Hayward are indeed on the roster and should be ready on opening night. Wizards suck yo. Celts without those 2 are still the better team

I think it's actually a lock* 2018 NBA Offseason a superstar joins the Knicks in 2019.

*Lock contingent upon Staps being healthy and Dolan selling the team.

I think it's Harden. He's made a star out of Capela and generates a ton of open 3s for teammates.

It's time they get a legit star though. Not fat ball-hog Melo's as the future. Like Jimmy Butler isn't really moving the needle for me (obv it's way better than what the Knicks have had but not likely to ship). Durant would be awesome plus STAPS and if Knox can develop and even moreso if Frank can become a legit starter. At least the team will be fun to watch this year until it's obvious they are tanking. I love Hezonja too. Irrational Hezonja love, but again someone fun to watch.

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

I'm big on Super Mario (Hezonja's new york nickname should be that).

He's going to thrive under Fizdale.

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

Lol how does Redick get 2x of what Ellington got?

The NBAs only saving grace are the players, 1 coach, tnt show and a few commentators.

Everyone is els3 is just so bad.

Officially done with the 76ers as long as JH owns the team

And then bounce for a pay day

But yea I like him. He can get ridiculous with his shot selection but he's better than anything the Knicks had last year after STAPS got hurt. I'm excited to watch him

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

JJ some how plays a few more mpg and scores 7 more ppg and 5% more usage than Wayne. Right now Philly can afford to pay JJ a little more. Like I would love for them to still go after Kawhi and I wish they got Lebron but they're still positioned well going forward and have $$$ to get a big time FA next if they'll come.
