Robin Lopez.... 2 rebounds in 25 mins. I mean, this is a 7 footer.


Wow, Sacramento is mailing it in:

Score was NYK 97 - SAC 52 to start the 4th quarter last night

I see your Bosh / Lopez, and raise you Bargnani... or if we're going all time Manute Bol. 7'7 and 4 rpg

Barg is a wet noodle on the boards, but he's an outside shooter so he gets 1/2 a pass. But Lopez is an in the paint CENTER. Worst rebounder since Luc Longley at 7' 2". Lopez has had more than 10 rebounds in only 3 games this whole season.


Speaking of Barg, there is an argument here that he is the worst starting player in modern NBA history:

you could argue that Bargnani is a worse #1 pick than Greg Oden. at least Portland isn't paying Oden and he's not soaking up minutes and cap space at this point

I feel bad for the dude, but Oden was a far, far worse pick than Bargnani. Dude only managed to played 82 games in the past 6 years AND they drafted him over Kevin friggin Durant!

I should have clarified that I was ignoring sunk costs, as per the article that idfnl posted. Right now, Oden isn't costing the Blazers anything other than the opportunity cost of a wasted #1 pick. Bargs, on the other hand, is arguably also a waste of a #1 pick in that he is a negative contributor to his team's likelihood of winning games, and takes up team resources and blocks the development of players behind him

For anyone to have the prime of their career cut short through no fault of their own is a sad thing.

Now? Sure. I'm no Bargs apologist, but he did put up some good numbers over a few seasons.

I have no idea. lol8[1].gif

seriously though, josh smith is walking next year the odds of chris paul/dwight howard/andrew bynum going to atlanta is very low, they might as well get some talent back for him. its a stretch, but danny ferry is a fucking idiot whenever he has impending big salary cap decisions. even when he's heading to a good place with the salary cap ferry ends up pulling confused.gif trades that sort of make sense but ultimately disappoint (just remember all of the "big trades" he made during the lebron era cavs).

Pau might ask for trade if D'Antoni & Howard stays next year.

"If this coach stays and Dwight Howard remains with the Lakers," I asked, "what about you?"

"It would be hard for me to deal with another season knowing the facts you just mentioned," said Gasol, 32 and with one year remaining on his contract.

"So do you ask for a fresh start elsewhere?"

"It's a possibility," he said, "yes."


On Paus meeting with D'Antoni:
Quote:
The coach and player met at a Manhattan Beach restaurant a few weeks back, and most folks were left with the impression they had a meeting of minds.

"It was an effort on our part to try and come to an understanding," Gasol said. "But I don't think it's translated to an understanding. Nothing significant has happened; it's probably even gone a little backwards."
