The average NBA franchise is worth over $2 billion now. Sarver, please sell the team and enjoy making over $1.5 billion while running our beloved franchise into the ground.

I hope the Suns are keeping tabs on Jontay Porter. I would love to see him on our Summer League team.

Hey Cleveland, maybe your problem is above the coach, you know, like telling your veterans that you're a winning team and then pissing them off more when you essentially jail them in Cleveland.

I haven't paid much attention to this year's Cavs, but I don't think most any coach would be getting wins out of that awful roster.

The Cavs firing their head coach 6 months into a 5 year contract is pretty hilarious. Glad there's at least one group running a team worse at it than the Suns.

What’s his recent history? I lost track of him a while back

This is pretty telling, and I was thinking about this over the weekend when the Beilein stuff was coming out.



It's worse when you consider their drafts, which rival ours in terms in futility....guys like Wiggins (traded for Love) Anthony Bennett, Sexton, Garland...Sexton and Garland especially...nothing against those two in particular but yeesh. Taking those two kinds of guards back to back isn't exactly savvy. Might as well be Chriss and Bender.

Went undrafted because of the knee injury. He is living with Michael and their sister and his rehab is supposed to be completed in March.

Man, I should become a Warriors fan or something. LOL @ Chriss and Bender being reunited. It's their destiny.
