The Hawks had been deep in negotiations Tuesday with the Brooklyn Nets on a deal, league sources said, but that bid to unload Howard was foiled when Brooklyn made a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers to trade Brook Lopez and a first-round pick for D’Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov.

I probably have a bunch of them somewhere on an external hard drive. If I hook it up I'll look for it. I think there was one of Barea as a midget hooping, going hard to the hole. Also remember one of GREEE EEAAAR* as a member of the Lollipop Guild.

Fat-bloated seemed pretty reasonable (if dumb), and Dame went from 0-MAD in record speed.

Sticking with lolDame on this one.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

There's probably some backstory we aren't familiar with. I get the impression that Dame really wants POR to get PG.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

Seems like they both have good points, although Dame seemed to take it to a personal level while the other guy was not. This is coming from someone who knows nothing about either on social media, except for few days ago when Dame said Will Barton was the best player on the Nuggets. Just for that he loses this argument because everyone knows it's Darrell Arthur.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

Seems like players are generally pretty bad at evaluating other players. I wonder how many current NBA players think Kobe is GOAT.

Will Barton does, and Nurk... There's some cool footage of how he reacted the first time him and Kobe played. Basically he started freaking out in front of coach Shaw talking about how he's always Kobe in 2K. This was of course because Jusuf turned into a giant vagina.

Jokic's favorite players are Tim Duncan and Lebron.. Clearly IQ is off the charts.

Well, Dame played with Barton obviously. He probably doesn't know much about what's up with Denver because he was too busy playoffing to pay attention to what the lottery franchises were doing.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

Kind of a random aside but I think it's cool how Lillard is known as "Dame" and there's no weirdness about it being a (maybe derogatory) old-school reference to women. Like you picture 1929 old guys in tuxes with that weird gut and thin legs rambling about those goddamn "broads and dames."

Leave it to the LOL HAWKS to mess up a simple thing like tanking. Impressive, really.

Also, everyone including links to tweets so people can see stuff on tapatalk - you the real mvp.

Ingram: "How do we become a dynasty again, Lord Magic?"
DAR: "I want to become a dynasty!"
Lord Magic: "Well, the first step is to trade all the little buggers who send inappropriate ravens."
DAR: "Harumph!"

RIP Dwight.

I hope we're at least able to pull off a S&T for Millsap.

Pretty shocked that Dwight apparently isn't even worth a better draft pick or two anymore.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

Let's rank the best young cores

Philly: Fultz (19) - xxx - Simmons (20) - Dario (23) - Embiid (23)
Wolves: Dunn (23) - Lavine (22) - Wiggins (22) - KAT (22) - xxx
Bucks: Brogdon (24) - xxx - Parker (22) - Giannis (22) - Maker (20)
Suns: Fox? (19) - Booker (20) - xxx - Chriss (19) - Bender (19)
Lakers: Lonzo (19) - xxx - Ingram (19) - Randle (22) - Zubac (20) + Nance
Nuggets: Mudiay (21) - Harris (22) - xxx - Joker (22) - Juancho (21)
Kings: xxx - Buddy (23) - JJ? (20) - Skal (21) - WCS (23)

Am I missing anyone? I guess you could throw in the Celtics with Jaylen (20), Smart and Rozier (23) and then Tatum at 3?

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

Philly >> wolves, bucks >nuggets >suns>Lakers>kings

Philly are very dependent on health but on paper they have three top talent prospects. Giannis is the best person on this list, KAT second. I don't love the rest of the bucks/wolves cores. I don't believe in the suns even though booker scored seventy plus. Probably under rating the nuggets with jokic. Kings are trash and lakers ranking is really ball dependent.
