today he clarified and said:
pretty weird explanation...dunno if i buy it, but literally one of the worst things a coach can do is question the contract that a player is on. then in this context, where the player you're talking about has already left a franchise because he felt insulted, and your front office is making panic trades to get him to stay in the offseason......bout as bad as it gets.


re: jeff green...he's been pretty thoroughly unhelpful as a basketball player basically his whole career, but hopefully he can contribute when the pressure's not on him and he's a 4th or 5th option.
haha could you think of a more doc-as-gm move?? crackup[1].gifcrackup[1].gif

i think the comment makes sense in context. he's saying love isn't a max player yet with the cavs (isnt there just this year left on his contract), meaning he probably will be signed to a max contract in cleveland

I still don't buy it, and the original context didn't really fit it, which is why he had to clarify his statement. I mean, nobody talks like how blast said that.

Doesn't matter what I think, tho, only Kevin love, and today love said he doesn't plan to opt out at the end of this year, which gives Cleveland another year w/ him. Assuming he sticks to his word, that takes a heck of a lot of pressure off the cavs to win this season.

Btw Orlando (4th worst O in the NBA) put up 121 on Chicago last night and today there's a lot of discussion about how gasol and Noah haven't worked well together all year. I feel like w/ their talent their record should be better than it is. Something to watch.

yeah i mean they have one of the best backcourts but i feel like it hasn't gelled yet together consistently yet

Rose still isn't 100% and Butlers been struggling lately.

I think Rose actually has had more bad games this season than good.



And for the love of god I hope the Sessions for Farmar trade happens!

Bulls ultimate demise has and always will be nagging injuries especially to the core of Gasol, Noah, Rose, and Gibson. They are a game behind the second seed so I wouldn't read that much into it. If they are still around 4-5 seed after the All-Star break, then I'd be a little worried.
post #19628 of 27204
yeah and noah's struggling hard after his surgery

like last night the defense was kinda bad, but sometimes defense is so on point. and it's not really dependent on how good the other team is. i dont really get it

Denvers trading Nate Robinson for Jameer Nelson from Boston and then Boston plans to buy out Nate and then Nate said he would love to be Clippers back up PG.

He's still streaky but at least he put up big numbers from the bench when needed like Aaron Brooks.

Seems like Doc is determined to get his son though. baldy[1].gif

Nate's last run in Chi basically put him back on the map IRRC. Was sad to see him go. He's def can be inconsistent but he would be a great addition to any bench.
post #19633 of 27204
so uh

mo scored 52 against pacers tonight



post #19634 of 27204
wtf is david blatt doing?? i get if you sit kevin love for defensive purposes but they had freaking james jones out there and the better morris twin destroyed the guy for a career high 35 points. love ended up being benched the entire 4th.

havent watched the bulls that much, jury is out. from what i've read gasol is putting up bomb fantasy stats but drastically can't do anything against big athletic skilled centers, might be something else to watch for

mo williams!!!! holy hell lol. apparently he hasn't scored even THIRTY points since 3/2012.

this may belong in the fantasy thread but i love rudy gobert like he is my biological son.
