    The guy ran a pretty good company, but as an owner he's a fucking clown. Karl's contract isn't going to have a loophole, fire the guy and move on. Terrible, terrible decision hiring him.

    wow free agency is so crazy already

    Tyson Chandler with the Suns. I think it's pretty good cuz Tyson is getting old. I'd imagine towards the end of the contract Len would get much more minutes whereas now Tyson would get more

    DeMarre Carroll with the Raptors ($60 mill/4 years, why'd they let him walk. they dont have chances for anybody else...)

    Amir Johnson with the Celtics ($24 mill/ 2 years!!!!)

    Kyle Singler staying with OKC

    Draymond and Warriors couldnt agree... (offer him max already. this is the summer to offer max)

    Kevin Love said in the Player's Tribunal that he's signing with Cavs ($110 mill / 5 years)

    TT staying with Cavs too ($80 mill/ 4 years)



    Also Pistons traded Brandon Knight ($70 mill/5 years) and Middleton ($70 mill/ 5 years) for Jennings...

    How the hell are the Cavs going to pay everyone?

    LMA is reportedly not impressed with the Lakers pitch. I don't think anyone worth a shit wants to play there as long as Kobe is still on the team with Byron Scott as the coach.

    apparently it was also because Lakers didn't really have a vision that was related to basketball. They kept pitching him on the stuff outside of basketball

    that's kind of true, but for example the Suns apparently had signed Tyson hours before and were trying to sell LMA on that and Rockets had a really good on court presentation with lots of data and analytics to show how LMA would contribute to their team

    but I guess Lakers have neither James Harden or a good core of up and coming players


    Rockets next year tho. If they have everybody healthy

    Yeah probably a bad idea to tell Aldridge will be replacing Pau as Kobes whipping boy.

    Yeah, that all makes sense. I was mostly just being a smart-ass. But Texas pretty much nailed it. It's pretty hard to lead with a purely basketball presentation when you don't have good answers for questions like, "Who's going to be calling the shots?" and "Who's going to get all the shots?"

    Lakers are screwed until Kobe retires. Glad Love, and LMA aren't coming to LA. Lakers should focus on DeAndre Jordan.

    Three years from now a line up of DeAndre, Randle, and Russell could be special.

    LMA didn't get the right answers from kobe? His first question was probably something along the lines of: how soon you retiring bro?

    Clipper should sign biyombo

    Still can't believe Danny Green signed with Spurs for $45 mill/4 years. I guess he owes them a ton and wanted to stay but damn. That's highway robbery

    actually, it might be surprising, but they are very, very close. probably the one player in the last 10 years that kobe has really bonded with.

    That's my understanding as well (as someone much less in the know that foodguy). Didn't stop the team from throwing Gasol under the Buss. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

    A touch above fair value. $8-9 mil was a good deal for the team, so they overpaid a touch :nodding:

    In this strange market where a guy like Tobias Harris is in the max deal conversation, SA did some decent business. Still questioning why Splitter was allowed to go... we're a year away from cap increase, just deal with it.

    Dude has the strangest nose in the NBA. Never saw this vid, 2 thoughts, Zach Lowe is a haircut and year away from being bald, and LMA just sounds like a SA Spur.
