Re: Who to pick at 6

I would love to know how James Jones intends to build a winning team. This team needs another star alongside Book. JJ played his career on winning teams with tons of talent, surely he knows he’ll have to make some bigger moves. This squad hasnt signed a star or made any big moves for years and year...

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

I liked this TrueHoop article about leg injuries (like Durant and Klay's) and recent advancements in training to avoid them. https://www.truehoop.com/p/shooting-from-the-hip A few other notables - Dick Barnett, NYK - Feb, 1967 Larry Costello, PHI - Dec, 1967 (career ending) Luke Jackson, PHI - Dec,...

Re: Around the League: The Off-season

What an AWFUL deal for the Pelicans. Just awful. They got 2 washed PGs, a player who's career will end in the next 2 years (Ingram) when he develops another clot, and 3 unknowns for the best big man in the league. Awful. The player they should have targeted was Kuzma at least. Kuzma's not really an...

Can get much better odds in FA acquiring known talent.
But it's usually much more expensive.

Re: 2019 NBA Playoffs

Does this now give Golden State the label of being a team that will clear a player to play when he's not healthy, and put him at risk for further injury if it's an important game?

Should the Warriors have not cleared Durant to play?

Re: 2019 NBA Playoffs

Well, obviously he won't opt out next year.

Hopefully he'll be able to play sometime next season, and will play well. You hate to see anybody suffer a career-threatening injury.

Re: 2019 NBA Playoffs

Unfortunately the Suns have never run up against the teams having injury issues in the big playoff series they played over the years (1976 Finals, 1979 WC Finals, 1993 Finals, etc.) like the Raptors are now. And the one time they had a good team and ran up against a team with injury problems (1981)...

Toronto is about to ring, and they've existed since 1996 (knocking off the 72 win Bulls in the regular season at the Skydome).

We've existed since...1968. Oof.

Right place, right time.

You have to make smart picks and then also be able to develop them.

The Suns have been 0 for 2.

Re: 2019 NBA Playoffs

I wouldn't say Green is a 1st ballot Hall of Famer, but these teams come to mind as having three HoF players in their prime - Chamberlain/Baylor/West - Lakers James/Bosh/Wade - Heat Chamberlain/Cunningham/Greer - 76ers Bird/McHale/Parish - Celtics Mikan/Pollard/Mikkelsen - Lakers Cousy/Russell/Heins...

Re: 2019 NBA Draft Lottery

Obviously this is the worst possible outcome for the teams looking to trade for Davis - If he isn't tempted to stay in New Orleans with Williamson and Holiday, you know it's not about winning, it's about money. Really disappointed with the Suns picking 6th. Drawing for the top four picks is just too...

I ran the simulator one time and got this -

1- Suns, 2- Knicks, 3 - Bulls, 4 - Hawks, 5 - Cavaliers, 6 - Wizards, 7 - Pelicans
