Would you trade for Bagley? Something like Jones & Smith with pick(s) I'm guessing.
Bagley may have higher ceiling, but I actually like Smith better. And Bagley hasn't been able to stay on the court for the first two years of his career. I don't think the gamble is worth it.

It's that pick, right? ;)

Josh Jackson went down with an injury. Doesn't look good. He was having a really good game too.

I am shocked at how entertaining this Celtics/Pistons game is. Jerami Grant is looking legit today.

I don't think I would want Bagley. At least, I don't think I would want to give up assets to acquire him, and I don't think I would want to have to try to re-sign him at the same time as Ayton, Bridges, and other FAs.

Yeah, I can totally understand that.

Meh, they won a title. No one needs to feel sorry for them for at least another 5 years.
Agreed. I never feel sorry for another team until we win a title. :D

That's a drag. Even though his time here was not good, I'm still rooting for the kid. I hope he gets his life together, on and off the court.

Curry with a career high 62 points. Some unreal shooting.

You can thank Dame Lillard for that:

Damian Lillard On Steph Curry’s Struggles: “He’s Seeing That It’s Tough To Get Those Quality Looks Right Now…It’s Different Than What It’s Looked Like The Last 4-5 Years.”

Steph tells Dame to hold his beer.

Curry had an amazing game. I loved that he shoved Lillard's words right back in his face.

Did he really shove anything back at Dame? Dame has twice as many games 50 or over than Curry, and he has always done that with a mediocre team.

decided to comment on this in this thread instead of the game day
Full disclosure - George is one of my fav players to watch and I saw Split trying to take on some of u guys debating if he's worth the new extension and the whole Playoff P argument but I chose to stay out of it :oops:



I do find this interesting tho. My description of him has always been his game is so smooth but his interviews, sound bytes too often come over as salty, sore loser, deflecting and well viewed as Soft especially by fans which opens him up to all the criticism. I would still more often read the actual players saying Nah that guy is a problem and so on giving him his respect.
so now hearing him say this makes me wonder if players around the league beginning to look at him a lil differently, was just a thought which I probably will never find out :)

Well, I mean, if your opponent talks some smack about how your team is having a bad season and how you personally can't get yourself open looks and make shots because your team sucks, and then you go into that opponent's house a few days later and put 62 points on him, yeah, I'd say he shoved it back at Dame.

Dame didn't call him out. He said it is tougher to get open looks when you are not playing with 2-3 first ballot HOF players on your roster. That is just facts. And Curry had a great game and more importantly got with win. But it isn't like Dame hasn't dropped 50 and Ls on the Warriors just as often as Curry has on the Blazers.
