    That Waiters kid in Cleveland can play. Never looks pressured or in a hurry, shows a burst when necessary, plays alot like Rondo in this respect but much more of a shoot first guy.

    The final offer likely did, I mean look at how quick that trade happened? No one was even aware until the news broke and trade has been done, no chance for the rumor to even hit the social media and someone usually leaks this kind of stuff if there is big trade like this will happen. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the already knew about the Rockets trade offer before offering Harden the $55mil and likely told Harden he has an hour to decide. I really see no reason for Harden to lie.

    there was a somewhat similar situation with olshey leaving the clips (gm who built this this version). apparently paul allen made him an offer contingent upon olshey not going back to sterling for a counter.

    I'm sorry.



    This is so true. Shaq could have accomplished much more if he had been willing to stay in shape.


    Ah, yes. The old Over-the-Hill Gang. I remember those days. . .

    I really am curious how long before that BS offense ends? Or how long before Mike Brown gets fired?


    He has a 4-year contract iirc, if they fire him they'd still have to pay him what he is owed? Because I really hope one more loss and he is gone. Get Jerry Sloan up in LA!

    From my understanding yes they would still owe him the remaining (2?) years left on the contract....

    Clippers found out the hard way in a similar coaching issue when Sterling decided not to pay the previous coach (Dunleavy) after axing him. For what its worth (if it even gets that far), I believe there was a quote from Jeannie Buss earlier this pre-season saying something along the lines of "Phil would love to coach this current Lakers squad." Phil would want $$$$ though.
