if anyone could be the russ whisperer it would be pop

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Tuesday, 1 May 2018 00:24 (two years ago) link

russ is too far gone i think

21st savagery fox (m bison), Tuesday, 1 May 2018 00:46 (two years ago) link

also russ is not a horse

21st savagery fox (m bison), Tuesday, 1 May 2018 00:47 (two years ago) link

now, after winning his mvp, russ will never change his game just to suit a coach. any team willing to pay rwb's contract is in too deep to let their coach alienate him. the coach would be let go first.

someone mentioned it previously but these albatross supermax contracts are gonna be a problem

Clay, Tuesday, 1 May 2018 01:46 (two years ago) link

Someone coined a saying a while back to the effect that, if I can't make the payment on my $10,000 auto loan I have a problem, but if I can't make the payment on my $50 million business loan, the bank has a problem. once you give out a supermax contract, the player's ability to deliver on it becomes your problem, not the player's.

indeed

it seems like whenever the owners try and slant the CBA in their favor there’s always an unintended consequence that ends up screwing them. a lot of these owners are going to get stuck with albatross contracts or end up having to trade the stars the CBA is supposed to funnel to them for fear of the albatross contract (i.e. boogie cousins)

Pot-farming Hawaiian Don Nelson is a very graceful ending.

this fuckin' guy

I built this place next to me. It’s not a wedding chapel, but they have weddings there. My daughter Lee runs that. She’s an interesting story. I had that daughter out of wedlock. I knew nothing about her for 29 years.

this kawhi piece is pretty thorough given the hush nature of it all
http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/23366667/inside-tension-kawhi-leonard-spurs

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Tuesday, 1 May 2018 17:43 (two years ago) link

The Kawhi article went on at great length, but in the end it didn't seem very enlightening. There were lots of facts, but how they connected or what they meant was totally unclear. It raised a lot of questions that seemed entirely based in rumors and innuendoes, then talked around them without resolving anything. Which means it summed up the Kahwi situation perfectly, by being completely opaque and unsatisfactory.

A is for (Aimless), Tuesday, 1 May 2018 20:08 (two years ago) link

you youve gotta draw your own conclusions on this whole thing for now. but there is at least some context around everything.

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Tuesday, 1 May 2018 20:12 (two years ago) link

they should just tell him they won't play him next year at all and and least make him think about not opting in.

poor melo lol

The Phoenix Suns are hiring Utah Jazz assistant Igor Kokoskov as their new head coach, league sources tell ESPN. Kokoskov, a native of Serbia, will be the first European born head coach in the NBA.

huh how bout that congrats igor

lag∞n, Wednesday, 2 May 2018 23:39 (two years ago) link

first non north american head coach apparently

lag∞n, Wednesday, 2 May 2018 23:49 (two years ago) link

steve kerr was born in lebanon but i guess that doesn't count

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Wednesday, 2 May 2018 23:51 (two years ago) link

cool?

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Wednesday, 2 May 2018 23:52 (two years ago) link

He's coached Doncic before, but that dude probably won't be around at pick 4

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Wednesday, 2 May 2018 23:53 (two years ago) link

never know this draft is pretty stacked at the top

lag∞n, Wednesday, 2 May 2018 23:57 (two years ago) link

huh i thought blatt was israeli but i guess he just spent his whole adult life there and was born in massachusettes

Clay, Wednesday, 2 May 2018 23:58 (two years ago) link

yeah weird.

cool hire by the suns in that it's not a boring pick ala jax/kidd/delnegro/etc. Bud to Bucks rumors are heating up.

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Thursday, 3 May 2018 00:01 (two years ago) link

seems like a match to me, bud prob wants personnel control tho

lag∞n, Thursday, 3 May 2018 00:01 (two years ago) link

might not be a bad move? they need roster help. but those things usually end poorly as we've seen.

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Thursday, 3 May 2018 00:02 (two years ago) link

yeah hed be a great hire as a coach but imho never give a coach gming duties, like he shd have input but not final say

lag∞n, Thursday, 3 May 2018 00:04 (two years ago) link

suns should have hired brad stevens 2

nba media dudes rave about kokoskov but they seemed to be pretty brainwashed by the utah org (not saying anything bad about the utah org but it's true)

call all destroyer, Thursday, 3 May 2018 00:17 (two years ago) link

calling some up and coming coach a hotshot is a no risk proposition

Good luck Fizdale!

Knicks’ head coaches since 2005-06:

Larry Brown: 23-59 (.280)
Isiah Thomas: 56-108 (.341)
Mike D’Antoni: 121-167 (.420)
Mike Woodson: 109-79 (.580)
Derek Fisher: 40-96 (.294)
Kurt Rambis: 9-19 (.321)
Jeff Hornacek: 60-104 (.366)

Now, David Fizdale takes over

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Thursday, 3 May 2018 21:58 (two years ago) link

feels like hornacek just started, i wouldnt have guessed he made it 2 full seasons

ciderpress, Thursday, 3 May 2018 22:15 (two years ago) link

hornacek going from the suns to the knicks was some kind of bad karma. poor guy.

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Thursday, 3 May 2018 22:19 (two years ago) link

its not like he had to

ciderpress, Thursday, 3 May 2018 22:35 (two years ago) link

fizdale must have really thought he wasn’t getting another job

J0rdan S., Friday, 4 May 2018 00:57 (two years ago) link

the suns offered him a 4 year, turned it down for the knicks

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Friday, 4 May 2018 01:04 (two years ago) link

suns job might be worse than the knicks actually

J0rdan S., Friday, 4 May 2018 01:18 (two years ago) link

knicks definitely pay more than suns

call all destroyer, Friday, 4 May 2018 01:21 (two years ago) link

suns job is def worse
