Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

I thought it was a good trade for the upside and their need for a distributor with size and athleticism. The fact that the result was a probable outcome doesn't necessarily mean it was a bad trade. It's still arguable that he was the only chance they had of winning the title.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

Which is funny because Rondo is probably starting the All Star game this year

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

I remember reading an article that Rondo was in a film session (as a Celtic) and got so pissed off that he threw the remote at the TV, smashing it.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

Sure the outcome being bad doesn't mean the trade was bad. However I believed the trade was bad then and that the "there's a chance" logic was specious in this scenario

I would assume something like this happens in like 1 out of 5 film sessions around the league

Yeah I mean I thought I was posting in the season thread. I take no responsibility for my low reading level.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

I basically only work with small biotech/life sciences companies now. The last 3 I've worked with were tiny (1-6 employees), brand new and raising money in small amounts (under $1M). For a couple of them I wrote grant proposals to the NSF and NIH, so I guess I do technically get paid to read and write, just not here. LET ME BE DUMB HERE (and I don't work for big pharma).

EDIT: Right now

Trading for Pierce and Garnett was Brooklyn's only chance of winning the title.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

Tank wars really heating up. Gasol was absolutely pushing Gobert's **** in and would have won them the game but Memphis pulled him in the 3rd and sat him for the final 18 minutes to secure the loss.

Chicago/Orlando last night was like preseason NFL in the 4th quarter. Go at it 12th men!

Someone named Ryan Arcidiacono was the difference maker.

This is a pretty well-respected guy who works for Altitude, which is the TV station owned by the Kroenke's.. His timeline the last day or so is... interesting.
