Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

interesting offseason topics:

- which team is dumb enough to draft Ball?
- Will Gordo Haybo resign with the Yazz?
- Is IT2's torn hip labrum a BIG DEAL? (yes)
- Will Cavs trade Love?
- Why on earth would Indy take Love for George?
- What will the Clippers do?
- What does it all even matter the Woyas will win next 5 ships.

Predictions:

Ball goes to the Sixers at #3.
Gordon Hayward signs with the Celtics.
Celtics keep the #1 pick and take Fultz. Lol midgets
Cavs will not trade Love
Indy doesn't trade PG13, hoping to re-sign him.
lolClippers
The Warriors will win the next 5 ships NBA Offseason Thread 2017 NBA Offseason Thread 2017 NBA Offseason Thread 2017 NBA Offseason Thread 2017 NBA Offseason Thread 2017

derail alert: so KD said Kyrie was better than AI and some of my friends lost their ****ing mind. Is there a single person here who would take AI over Kyrie?

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

AI is probably a better option on a really ****ty squad. Kyrie is definitely a better option on a good/great team. There are a lot of people who really love Iverson--midget who lead the league in scoring and lead his **** squad to the finals.

I don't think Kyrie does very well leading the team when Lebron is on the bench as the defacto #1 option on a **** team. Kyrie does well as a 2nd option when Lebron is #1.

That's not a surprising casual fan opinion. Actually it's completely standard for lol casual fans.

Once you factor in AI's risk of ruin, it's not close. Plus AI has a worse drug of choice.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

AI lead a pretty scrubby team to the finals. Even though the east was weak still was impressive on that team. Cant see Kyrie ever doing that in his place.Ai is the better alphadog but Kyrie is a better sidekick on a good team.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

jerry west did a ton for dubs, sad to see him go.

lolbleacher report saying lebron may leave CLE in 2018 FA. quoted woj tho

Quote:
Speaking on his podcast Wednesday, The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski (h/t Pro Basketball Talk's Dan Feldman) reported the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers may be destinations for James in free agency:

"Not only is there no guarantee he’s coming back, I’m not sure there’s an expectation he’s re-signing there. I think they feel, I think within Cleveland and around the league, they feel that he’s very much in play to leave again and likely head out West to one of the two L.A. teams. The Lakers could very well be a target."


Wojnarowski speculated James would feel more comfortable leaving Cleveland a second time since he helped the Cavaliers win an NBA championship in 2016. And being in Los Angeles would allow the four-time MVP to pursue ventures he has outside of basketball.

I've long believed Westbrook, George, and Lebron would all end up in LA

I always thought westbrook was a lock to become a laker and think kupchak/buss messed it up somehow. I would settle for dame at this point I guess.

I take AI over Kyrie. Kyrie is overrated as much as AI underrated. Adjusting for era and better coaching, AI would be fine on a good team.

So much this. AI played in an era with no spacing on a team with no shooting. AI in this era would be unstoppable. AI was able to force steals and Kyrie is one of the worst defenders I have ever seen.

Kyrie is absolute trash.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

AI should be creating space, not using it. he had 9 freaking seasons below .520ts, spacing wouldn't magically make him grow a few inches
