  1. First off, do they have Irving and Hayward? If not, you assume they won't get far in the playoffs, and you won't prepare for them. Oops.
  2. Who's getting moved

    I think running would be out of the question.
  3. Who's getting moved

    Surely we should consider ALL the players who are coming off an injury that cost them a whole season?
  4. Meat and a Potato Guy

    I thought this was about Dwayne Bacon and Spud Webb.
  5. Ringer Draft Analysis

    So are they ranking Jackson ahead of Bagley because of D? The numbers say it's Bagley, no contest. Although "reliable" is nice.
  6. Jeff Green is more like "Can do it all; doesn't."
  7. Bagley or Doncic, Ayton if we must, otherwise trade down a couple of slots and take Carter.
  8. Trading the pick

  9. Trading the pick

    For the record, someone got that reference.
  10. Trading the pick

    If you rate the players out of 100, and the two guys over 95 are gone, then you have maybe six players you rated 88-95 ... between them "best available player" is meaningless . Trading down from a 95 to a 93 because another team really wants the 95 guy is just good business. Specifically, I can see a deal like the Mayo-Love swap.. Among the players close in apparent value, any smart FO will award points for various criteria - overall O, overall D, BBIQ, attitude, risk of injury, upside, downside, strengths, weaknesses, fit with existing players. Then, carefully weighing all the variables, they will pick the guy the boss's barber likes.
  11. Someone has to say it: Steve Francis scenario?

    I like Bamba but his weight! *** Current NBA players *** === 6'10" or taller AND under 230 lbs: Thon Maker, Zhou Qi, Lucas Nogueira, Giannis Antetokounmpo, John Henson, Dario Saric, Davis Bertans (coupla good ones there) === Players Bamba would who are at least 40 pounds heavier: Nurkic, McGee, Pachulia, Whiteside, Monroe, Favors, Mahinmi, Lauvergne, Aldridge, Baynes, Yabusele Gasol would have to guard them - that's a lot of teams.
  13. The worst thing about getting the 4th pick

    It would cost us Martin just to get another team to take McLemore. McL has negative value right now.
  14. It's the Final Countdown!!!

    If the guys we want are all gone at 4, do a little trade, one of those promise deals where we swap #4 for # 6 or something on the assurance we'll get Sexton, whose learning curve should make him a starter just as Conley gets ready to dial it back.
  15. It's the Final Countdown!!!

    Bamba, Ayton, Bagley, Doncic. Could be worse.
  16. It's the Final Countdown!!!

    Chance for top-three was only 55.8% but it still feels like we got screwed AGAIN.
  17. It's the Final Countdown!!!

    It will be a year before we know which of the top five was the best one to pick. Not sure it even matters which pick we get, unless we are trying to trade. To be clear, I'd trade #1 for #4 and something nice; would not trade down below 5 or 6 unless it's a really sweet deal.
  18. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Greg Oden. Xavier Henry. Jordan Adams. To name only three. Nope. No "If healthy" players please.
  19. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    And anyone who says it does has never seen Charles Barkley's golf swing
  20. Ping pong time.

    If we trade down to unload Parsons, it would HAVE to be because we have a promise from a young, elite free agent who has said, " I want to play in Memphis." Like Capela or McCollum or Klay Thompson. Ain't gonna happen. And no, Tyreke is not that guy.
  21. With ZBo on the floor we could not play the D that any modern coach would want to play. All our strategies would have to include covering for him. He might not ever be on the floor with Gasol, so that avoids having two slow guys on at once, but still ...
