  1. What do you think Tyreke's value is?

    Oh I don't think they are. I think it's foolish, but I think they are committed to trying to be a 7-8 seed again next year with no hope of winning it all.
  2. What do you think Tyreke's value is?

    I won't even get into who is better, Marc or Deandre. But if Cleveland is stupid enough to trade the Brooklyn pick, I think Marc is the better trade acquisition for them. 1). He spaces the floor better than Deandre does, which is important because it give LeBron room to drive and another shooter to pass to on those drives. 2) Marc is actually signed after this season. So if LeBron walks, you can trade Marc for other assets- although none will be as valuable as the Brooklyn pick they give up. If they get Deandre and LeBron walks, the odds are against Deandre resigning. Then they will have given up a lottery pick for cap space.
  3. What do you think Tyreke's value is?

    We may have only had to keep Thabeet for one season, but we lost out on Steph Curry. Thabeet is still worse. The only thing worse than Thabeet is the Otis Thorpe trade. That cost us DWade (Jerry West's target), Bosh, or Melo. Although I hate Melo as a player, any of those three would have given us a real superstar at least for a little bit.
  4. What do you think Tyreke's value is?

    I'm with you on not taking back long term salary if it is a bad contract. I'm not opposed to Clarkson (although that takes more than Tyreke). I don't think we are getting a first or if we do, that it will be a super late first. I'd rather target young guys who are still on rookie contracts but have shown some potential. Oubre, Poeltl, Anunoby, Hernangomez (either), Richaun Holmes, Kennard, those type of players. They may not be available. But those would be my targets first and foremost (unless you can get a mid round first). Then I'd settle for picks.

    First and foremost I understand this would never ever happen from any team that has LeBron. I just want to tackle the craziness of this argument. The free agency stuff I get and would absolutely be a reason NOT to do this kind of trade. But LeBron on the downside of his career is a reason not to trade Marc Gasol for him? Assuming LeBron is on the downside of his career, he is still infinitely better than Gasol. LeBron is the best player in the game. Even a crazy person puts him in the top 3 players in the game-that's worst case scenario. Gasol would be lucky to make a top 20 list. LeBron is a whopping one month older than Gasol. Now, is LeBron on the downside of his career? Well he's not on the upside. My guess is he is still at his peak. His ppg, rpg, apg, and 3 pts made per game are all above his career averages. He is tied with his career average for steals per game. His FG%, 3PT%, and FT% would all rank within the top 3 of his career. Yeah, he's on the downside.

    Maybe, maybe not. That would depend on who else was on the team. But that is not what I said. I said the two time MVP who is the "GREATEST OF ALL TIME AT HIS SKILL SET." That is Curry.
  7. KBM's draft thoughts and opinions

    I see nothing wrong with being another Marc Gasol. Multiple time All Star. Former all NBA player. Very good player. If he turns into Gasol, he will have a great career and be a worthy pick. That being said, your team is not winning anything of consequence if he is Gasol 2.0 and has to be your number 1 player. Gasol is a below average first option, a solid second option, and a championship level third option.
  8. What do you think Tyreke's value is?

    You wait for the best offer. However, even if all the offers are crap, you absolutely trade him just to trade him. He is gone after the season regardless. Get something while you can. The only way he comes back here is if no one offers him the MLE or higher. That is all we can offer. If the most anyone offers is the MLE, do you think he is choosing to play for a team that is currently among the worst in the league? Get what you can for him.

    I'll take the guy with the two MVP awards and who is the greatest of all time at his skill set. That's just me.

    and....? What is it?
  11. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    I am telling you he is not better than Mike Conley right now. Now whether you choose to believe it or not is your choice. I did. Only player who made any impact in the NBA was Avery Johnson. And I would take Mike Conley over Avery Johnson any day. NCAA stats don't guarantee NBA success. I think Trae Young is one helluva prospect. But I am not putting him over anyone in the NBA who has established themselves to the level Conley has (and I don't think Conley is as great as some on this board do).
  12. What do you think Tyreke's value is?

    I'm fine with that. Both have shown to be capable rotation level players. Both are young.
  13. Worst possible scenario: the Grizzlies actually trying to make it to the 8th seed. First, it's highly unlikely we can play at the level necessary to even put us in contention. The Pelicans are currently the 8th seed. They are at .500. If they finish the season at .500, they will have 41 wins. To match those 41 wins, we have to go 28-14 the rest of the way. Or we have to be as good as the current 3 seed in the West. Based on the way this season has gone, does anyone really believe this team can play at that level? Secondly, you have to jump 5 teams. They may be bad, but jumping 5 teams is never easy. The most likely scenario if the team goes for it is playing better but coming up short. In order to do that, we would have to hold onto Tyreke, Brandan Wright, and James Ennis. So our one asset (the draft pick) would be worse, and we won't have added any additional assets. Then next year we are still stuck in salary cap hell. We will only have MLE to offer. Tyreke almost certainly leaves for more money. I can't imagine the team resigning Wright unless it's for the minimum due to his unavailability. Ennis could resign, but do we want him? Either way the 3 of them are some of the better rotation pieces we have. So we lose 2 or 3 of our better players (not saying much) and our only avenues to replace them are MLE, a worsened draft pick, 2nd round picks, and league minimum offers. Sounds an awful lot like next year will be worse than this. We are in rebuild whether the team has accepted it or not. To fight that will only make things worse and take longer to come out of.

    I've only watched him twice, but several of his passes were absolutely amazing. I do agree his usage rate is extremely high. That coupled with his scoring ability helps with the high assist total. But from what I've seen, his passing is definitely above average.
