There aren't any Zions or Lukas lurking out there for 2020, but there could easily be a Kawhi.

I feel like RJ Hampton will be the highest upside guy outside the top 5. Has an “it factor” to me.

Matt Armstrong, Sunday, 12 January 2020 17:34 (eight months ago) link

idk i feel like after rj barretts struggles teams might be weary of selecting another rj

That’s gonna be a factor no doubt

Through 12 games, Ball averaged 17 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per game, while shooting 37.7 percent from the field and 25 percent from beyond the arc. NBA scouts are intrigued by the California-native point guard skillset for his 6’7 frame, yet still have questions about his suspect jump-shot, which he struggled with over the season

I was looking at the grizz and they are insanely under the cap this offseason and there’s lots of small forward free agents, their only position that seems to be an issue. Might be worth overpaying one of them.

Matt Armstrong, Saturday, 25 January 2020 00:13 (eight months ago) link

Add giannis and they'd be pretty tough

Like why not just throw a ton at Davis Bertans

Matt Armstrong, Saturday, 25 January 2020 00:15 (eight months ago) link

Morant-Brooks-Bertans-JJJ-Jonas would be a hard team to defend that’s for sure

Matt Armstrong, Saturday, 25 January 2020 00:16 (eight months ago) link

six months pass...

Sad to say as a Georgia grad that I’ve never seen Anthony Edwards play. I guess he’d be nice next to trae. Confused why everyone has us passing on Wiseman just because capella is there now.

yeah thats silly

I saw him play Great Balls of Fire on piano once, but never basketball. Maybe with Eriq La Salle at some point?

methinks dababy doth bop shit too much (m bison), Thursday, 20 August 2020 15:38 (one month ago) link

i like that they changed the odds and number of spots so that the teams with less shot still have some shot not like .0001%

lag∞n, Thursday, 20 August 2020 15:57 (one month ago) link

i also like that the 1-3 worst record have equal shot and it's not a guarantee at all. like gs could have the #5 pick thatd be great

methinks dababy doth bop shit too much (m bison), Thursday, 20 August 2020 18:00 (one month ago) link

yeah if the warriors get the 5 pick thats a good system

lag∞n, Thursday, 20 August 2020 18:00 (one month ago) link

This is one of those drafts where it feels like the best player is gonna go 9th

Matt Armstrong, Thursday, 20 August 2020 18:12 (one month ago) link

11th* (if thats the spurs pick)

I think Anthony Edwards could be good, if he ends up on the right team and plays like his hair’s on fire he could be a Russ type. But he can’t shoot for shit.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Friday, 21 August 2020 02:27 (one month ago) link

Is Anthony Edwards nickname "Goose"? If not, can we make that happen?

EZ Snappin, Friday, 21 August 2020 03:27 (one month ago) link

It would surprise me if Edwards doesn’t become a good shooter tbh

Tim Duncan is the only player in the lottery era to be selected No. 1 overall and lead his original franchise to multiple titles.

NBA is moving toward pushing back this year's draft, scheduled for Oct. 16, along with Oct. 18 start of free agency, partly because of likelihood that the tentative opening of the 2020-21 season will be delayed from Dec. 1, per sources. Also allows more time to set a salary cap. https://t.co/Sv2i5EqAsp

There’s not that many guys in the pre-lotto era that did it other than Magic, are there?

Worthy and Magic are the only two guys I see

Oh and hakeem. Pretty crazy how badly number one picks bombed before 1975 or so

let the drama drip

https://sports.yahoo.com/disappointment-frustration-lack-of-chemistry-portrait-of-the-clippers-collapse-172338674.html

The rapport simply wasn’t there for the Clippers, and it certainly wasn’t there in Game 2 when Montrezl Harrell and George got into a heated verbal exchange during a timeout, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Early in the second quarter, a struggling George had committed two careless turnovers in less than a minute. The second mishap was a half-court pass to Harrell, who was near the paint but surrounded by Murray and Michael Porter Jr.

Murray picked off the pass. Seconds later, the Clippers called a timeout.

Harrell approached his teammate about the risky pass, with George not taking responsibility and arguing the pass could have been caught had Harrell made the right play, sources said.

This set off the NBA Sixth Man of the Year.

Harrell responded with something along the lines of, “You’re always right. Nobody can tell you nothing,” and expletives were uttered from both players, sources said. George eventually toned down his rhetoric, but a heated Harrell wasn’t having it. Teammates began clapping on the sideline, in part to disguise what was going on and in an attempt to defuse the situation. The incident deescalated shortly after as coach Doc Rivers took his seat to go over the game plan.

The Clippers were not on the same page off the court either. After the Game 7 loss, George said, “I think internally, we always felt this was not a championship or bust year for us.”

George was the only player to convey that thought. Rivers and the players acknowledged the goal was to win a championship this year.

not sure who deserves the most blame here but im leaning towards doc.

most common and financially feasible one i've heard is charlotte

i could see him coming back on a 1-2 year deal... it depends on what his priorities are

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 16 September 2020 21:01 (one week ago) link

Man what


Adam Silver told CNN a few minutes ago that he does not anticipate the 2020-21 season beginning until at least January (so is it really a 2020-21 season?) and said the league wants 82 games, with playoffs.

At what point do they just say NBA players aren't going to the Olympics?

I’d always assumed they’d shorten the next season

Matt Armstrong, Tuesday, 22 September 2020 16:47 (three days ago) link

same but i presume that's a television contract issue.
i would be in favor of reducing to a 60 game season tbh.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 22 September 2020 16:57 (three days ago) link

I think if they do this there’s a very real possibility that it’s the permanent schedule

Quiet Storm Thorgerson (PBKR), Wednesday, 23 September 2020 11:47 (two days ago) link

yes yesssss

Rumblings of Mike D'Antoni going to the Sixers have gotten much louder this past day. Nothing's final, I'm just intrigued since his preferred style isn't a fit for Philly's roster. It'd be weird. Would hiring him be a precursor to changes to modernize the team? MDA does love CP3.

or just fast i guess doesn't have to be small. embiid seems like the least dantoni-capable player

hes pretty bad in the post but theoretically since he is good at basketball he should be able to develop that part of his game, he would be immediately unstoppable as a roll man tho
