I really don't. It's hard to be more eye-rolling that the lakers or the LBJ heatles but they've succeeded.

Sources said Jefferson, who committed to re-sign with the Dallas Mavericks earlier this month, changed his mind in recent days and is finalizing a one-year veteran minimum deal with the Cavaliers instead.

wtf? why? that's going to cost them like $5 mill total. are they bringing back JR and Delly? cuz pretty much nobody else has cap room


i dont really give a fuck about clips player issues. want to root for hawks, but im really going to miss demarre



gallo got signed for $34mill/2 years. wtf... literally competing against nobody
post #23481 of 27247
i like the clips a lot (duh), mainly for the most facile of reasons -- for the most part they seem like a good bunch of guys who enjoy playing together.
post #23482 of 27247
^this. i just like that group of guys. i want them to win a championship together

My Rockets looking good. Morey is a genius. Player option on Lawson's contract too, so Houston can still play for KD in 2016. 

 

Lawson/Bev/Terry

Harden/Brewer/McDaniels

Ariza/Dekker

DMo/TJones

Howard/Capela

 

That is a deep, deep squad. McHale may even consider starting Bev for defense alongside Harden and bringing Lawson with the 2nd string. Either way, way better than Prigioni/Terry at PG like the last playoff run.

Isn't vet minimu like $1.2m or something that low? JR is going to talk to them, not sure if they are itnerested, maybe low ball the hell out of him for opting out of his $6m contract? Delly I think might be gone? I don't remember but I think I read somewhere that he might be going somewhere else but not sure. I think he wanted $5m a year or something?

Chuckwagon is a beast, but you're thinking about Landry! He was my fav player on that squad. Got shot in the leg after a Hornets game.

Is he acting as his own agent now? What an idiot.

^he was betting that cavs would sign him for more than player option only turns out cavs priorities weren't JR Smith rolleyes.gif

yeah but they're already in luxury tax. i read JR wants $6 mill and that it would cost them $23 mill total including luxury tax payments if they sign him for that which is like what lebron is getting paid...



a vets minimum costs cavs like 2.5 times that amount in luxury tax cuz they're I think $14 mill above luxury tax




also rockets totally stacked. lawson hopefully will turn out OK. they have that secondary playmaker which could allow harden to rest for better effort on defense and also rockets wont get killed with harden sits

it's like the top 4 teams in the west just feast on the dead corpses of the bottom 4 teams. continually extracting assets



anyways this season looking like the west will be a bloodbath once again

Warriors kept everybody and Spurs, Rockets, Clippers got significantly better
post #23489 of 27247
yeah, the west is going to be a blood bath. warriors are going to be even better, just because of a year. spurs got way better. clips got somewhat better (possibly more, last year's bench looked deep too, at the beginning of the year). i have to believe houston will b e the odd man out because ... dwight. just dwight.

Nice try Blake - using your outlet to try to put a positive spin on the douche move of the year
