like i'm not saying thibs has been a good coach for the wolves but there are a lot of good players who would run through a wall for him. if kat isn't one of them it's fair to wonder why that is.

thibs signing the actually dead derrick rose in 2017 was the most lol thing

Clay, Saturday, 19 May 2018 02:49 (one year ago) link

idk he seems kina awful imo, like he doesnt even respect his players health and they joke openly about it online

sprout god (lag∞n), Saturday, 19 May 2018 03:46 (one year ago) link

like cut it out man this ain't good for anybody and you are going to die

Clay, Saturday, 19 May 2018 03:58 (one year ago) link

yeah yeah i get it but the good bulls teams under thibs were so insanely hard to play against, i'm fine w/giving up on him as a tactician but he could get people motivated to play.

call all destroyer, Saturday, 19 May 2018 04:02 (one year ago) link

he mightve just had the right mix of guys whod give 110 on D until they injured themselves

sprout god (lag∞n), Saturday, 19 May 2018 04:07 (one year ago) link

yeah and basically all those guys are out of the league now except jimmy

Well partially true I mean joakim will be getting paid by the league for like 4 more years

hey fwiw i opened up trade machine to see how a kawhi-KAT deal would look

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 19 May 2018 16:42 (one year ago) link

i traded tatum for him

sprout god (lag∞n), Saturday, 19 May 2018 16:57 (one year ago) link

if you die in the trade machine you die in real life

ciderpress, Saturday, 19 May 2018 16:59 (one year ago) link

KAT to suns
Kawhi to t wolves
Doncic, tj warren and some minny youngster /salary to spurs

I'm Finn thanks, don't mention it (fionnland), Saturday, 19 May 2018 17:29 (one year ago) link

Interesting but kawhi + Butler seems kinda redundant

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Saturday, 19 May 2018 17:37 (one year ago) link

Kawhi could use the soft touch Thibs provides.

omar little, Saturday, 19 May 2018 17:38 (one year ago) link

many big switachable wings isnt too bad, celtics have three of those guys, i like that trade

sprout god (lag∞n), Saturday, 19 May 2018 17:40 (one year ago) link

i had to check a second source to make sure teagues salary wasnt a typo lol

Ugh do not want Teague

I'm Finn thanks, don't mention it (fionnland), Saturday, 19 May 2018 17:54 (one year ago) link

hahahaha nah

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 19 May 2018 17:55 (one year ago) link

conversely

+ this memphis pick --> minny

The Celtics will get the Memphis first round pick in 2019 if it is No. 9 overall or later; or No. 7 and later in 2020. Otherwise, the Celtics will receive the Memphis first round pick in 2021 with no restrictions.

sprout god (lag∞n), Saturday, 19 May 2018 17:56 (one year ago) link

i wouldnt trade tatum for KAT at this point.

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 19 May 2018 17:57 (one year ago) link

if the celtics think they can tap his defensive potential then its a no brainer imo, if he kinda is what he is on D then yeah prob not

sprout god (lag∞n), Saturday, 19 May 2018 17:58 (one year ago) link

he def doesnt seem like he has the ainge mindtype

sprout god (lag∞n), Saturday, 19 May 2018 17:59 (one year ago) link

Booker and kat yeah the suns def need more Kentucky bros

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Saturday, 19 May 2018 18:02 (one year ago) link

i think the spurs shd risk it all for doncic current team is going nowhere, aldridge contract an albatross

sprout god (lag∞n), Saturday, 19 May 2018 18:03 (one year ago) link

I greatly doubt ainge will go angling after KAT. if he could get gobert, I believe he'd be willing to part with some talent.

A is for (Aimless), Saturday, 19 May 2018 18:05 (one year ago) link

suspect a traditional paint bound center isnt really in the celtics vision for the future

sprout god (lag∞n), Saturday, 19 May 2018 18:06 (one year ago) link

lol the celtics wouldn’t go near gobert

call all destroyer, Saturday, 19 May 2018 18:32 (one year ago) link

jokic is the closest to the dream celtics center of the current up and comers

ciderpress, Saturday, 19 May 2018 18:33 (one year ago) link

did you mean to type “anthony davis” there?

Deal going down at Denny’s

EZ Snappin, Saturday, 19 May 2018 20:08 (one year ago) link

im coming around to the idea that kawhi could be traded and i hate it

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 19 May 2018 20:15 (one year ago) link

i blame kevin durant honestly, this whole league is fucked up bc he went to GS

like...i can see this argument bc as long as the hampton 5 is alive the chances of winning a title is small. but kawhi is still p young and theoretically in his prime for the duration of his next contract, and i think he can still be a cornerstone of a team that challenges for a title in that window. but if you have uncertainty about kawhi's health and commitment, you dont want that supermax deal eating up half the cap by year 5.

lma's contract isnt that bad bc he's actually a highly productive player who arguably just had his best season. he has 3 years left on his deal and the spurs dont have a lot of salary committed to anyone else in that third year. they could theorteicaly rebuild on the fly with LMA shouldering #1 duties while they pursue a youth movement around whomever they could bring in for kawhi plus dejounte, their #18 pick, and some other younger role players on the roster. but i can't really see pop doing that at age 69.

the pau gasol contract is truly atrocious bc his value only diminishes by the year and he's getting $32.8m over the next two. if they can find some team that needs to meet the salary floor while they tank, then they can clear space for lebron james this summer.

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 19 May 2018 21:18 (one year ago) link

this is probably the most important offseason in spurs history though in terms of the range of possible outcomes. they could get kawhi back plus lebron and be a challenger to GS and HOU in the west. or they could trade kawhi and strike out on big free agents and struggle to make the playoffs next year. tony parker has said he would consider signing with another team. manu could retire. three rotation players have player options. or...they could bring back a really similar looking team next year. no idea.

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 19 May 2018 21:33 (one year ago) link

another thing that pisses me off about Thibs is when someone is as good at creating for others (and underrated defense) as Ricky, wouldn't you at least want to see him with 3 players with the scoring ability Butler, KAT and Wiggins for one year and least? close minded oaf

if we are going to hopeless at least Ricky was cute and has beautiful eyelashes

I am excited about him but his average athleticism is a little concerning for a guy who is going to dominate the ball. the shooting numbers I'm sure will get better with NBA training
