That's saying something, because Kyrie is not well-suited to sidekick duty.

Kyrie has possibly the best handles of all time, is a superior finisher around the rim and shooter. Kyrie is overrated by the masses but he is underrated itt.
They are pretty similar. If anything, Iverson might have been a better athlete. Kyrie definitely is a better shooter and probably a better teammate.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

I just realized that Lebron is the bastard that prevented the world from the mighty cavs Big 3

Irving - Wiggins - TT

This team would certainly make the Wolves look like a great team

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

LA Times said thirdhand that CP3 has plans to meet with Houston and Denver. .

I hadn't heard of those two with all the talk about the Spurs. My gut (or maybe my heart) tells me that if Denver were to land him it would be with another player, in which case things could get really interesting over there.

Houston would be crazy to go after CP3. Denver would make sense.

D'antoni would go Error 404 if he had to manage 2 ball handlers in the same team

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

- Lebron is good friends with Josh Kroenke (Nugs owner), they even vacationed on Josh's yacht last year.

- Mike Malone coached LBJ and by all accounts they are tight.

- Jokic and Harris will have astronimically low cap-holds in 2018.

Banana boat reunion in the Mile High City.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

But for real though.

CP3 = CP3
Harris >> JJ
Gallo >>>>>>>> Their pupu platter of small forwards
Lebron >>> Blake
Jokic >> DAJ

Murray/Juancho/Plumlee >>> FULL BLOWN AIDS

The depth would allow their old stars to actually rest, and they'd have 2 guys in Gallo and Jokic that absolutely punish GSW when they go small. CP3 would pop his conference finals cherry and we'd at least have a competitive series with the Warriors. Lebron would be the 3rd best post-up guy ffs.

WHERE ELSE YOU GONNA GO BRON?

This is even better than that time they were this close to landing prime Dwight.

Seadude,

I'll be in Denver next weekend if you want to grab a beer. What part of town do you live in again?

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

LOLakers Caldo.

Cleveland should just trade LBJ and get it over with. It's obvious by now that next year he'll just be biding his time and trying to stay healthy before he comes to Denver.

Bulls have the ~7th best player ITL and yet somehow their situation seems hopeless.

remember when Thibs wanted Draymond and got Marquis Teague instead

Draymond / JIMMY coached by Thibs would be an awesome fun core for the good of the league

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

So basically if Gar Forman wasn't a terrible GM

-Warriors aren't autowin in any year
-Durant stays in OKC
-Spurs stays spurs
-Lebron has a real threat in the east facing a team holding 2 of the 10 best anti lebron weapon in the world

Bulls killed the NBA

There is no guarantee Green is what he is with the Bulls. Who knows how good he'd be a #2 option?
