NBA 2016-2017 Season Thread - Page 1609

post #24121 of 27236
i would rather be the sixers. honestly the only way they fail is if they stop this early. and even then it wont really be a failure cuz they already have so many potentially good players

i dunno what's up with noels but okafor looks hungry out there. dude wants to eat

i mean i'd choose the kings given they have a franchise player. but i'm just pointing out that having a franchise player doesn't preclude your team from sucking ass for 7 straight seasons almost as much as philly has for just 2.

would you rather be in these teams' spots than philly:
knicks (not if they didn't have kp, but as it is, PORZINGISSSS)
brooklyn (don't think so, philly's future is significantly better)
milwaukee (yes, but outside of giannis their team is a big mess)
portland (lillard's the only keeper right? is he gonna max out as demonstrably better than okafor?)
denver (maybe? what do they really have going for them?)
sac (if they trade boogie this team has no future)
lakers (yes because of location, but i dont think their young guys rate much better than philly's, if at all)

I would still choose philly but cuz of the reason you mentioned. You need a super max star and at least two borderline all stars plus a deep bench. Kings just have a franchise player. They're good enough to not get a high draft pick because of cousins but they're not even going to make .500

I mean they're fun to watch. I realize the goal is supposed to be this trophy at the end of the year claiming you're the best team but honestly I just like watching good basketball. Sixers are going to good basketball in a few years

I actually have watched one or two kings games recently and I really liked watching. It was entertaining.

I'd choose the Lakers. No franchise has the same pulling power to attract free agents. Kobe finally out, cap space, and a decent draft pick for the upcoming means you can do some work.

All things equal, ignoring market dynamics, I'd take Milwaukee. There is a solid team in there somewhere if you can turn MCW into a defensive stopper and never let him take a shot, or make a play for that matter. Or get rid of him.

In terms of Hinke being smart, not sure, but regardless I've learned to value ethical over smart, and tanking is unethical.

Bottom of that list are BKN and PHI in that order.

I'm a die hard Blazers fan, but I have to fess up to watching a grip of Bucks games over the last two seasons.
post #24126 of 27236
Bucks offense is hard to watch tho. Almost as hard as watching the rockets

They dont have a scorer. After they traded away brandon knight they havent been the same. By the time giannis or jabari mature enough theyll command too much money :sigh: And greg monroe is not a scorer.
post #24128 of 27236
So Jabari is struggling, then? He was as complete a scorer as they come in college (except perhaps for nba-three range)

He has been pretty terrible outside of the paint. Granted he is young and coming off injury but he averages 10 ppg in 25 min. His career high is 23 last year before injury and he really hasnt shown that he is fully back yet.

It's more perception, but doesn't he look kinda small out there? Like Elton Brand never looked small even though he was always 4 or 5 inches shorter than other low-block guys, Parker just looks outsized. Another guy that looks out of place is D'angelo Russell, am I the only one that thinks he looks really slow?
post #24133 of 27236
He looks about his size. I mean he's sort of a copy of Giannis in that they have the same offensive skills. Both can drive the hoop like no one else but the mid to long range game is completely lost. Sometimes Jabari just explodes to the hoop and I am wowed. Then he'll shoot and shoot from 10' and make none.
Defensively he is small and has not impressed Kidd because his defensive consists of trying to take charges. Ugh, and dont get me started with the lack of rebounding for the whole team...
post #24134 of 27236
That brandon knight deal right now looks like a bad trade. Hope MCW gets better. They really miss Zaza and Jared Dudley on defense too. Just kind of bad all around right now
post #24135 of 27236
Can't believe I am pulling for the Celtics right now.
