    you are probably right. that was a hot mess on top of everything else last year.

    I would love to see MC get an All Star nod. Also would love to see the Rockets struggle. nothing would make me happier... I don't know why we signed Shelvin Mack if harrison is going to get all those minutes.

    Predict WIns for Next Season

    I don't think Nola is that good. I stand by my comments.

    I actually take no offense. I was just giving you a hard time. but its a bit harsh to say some other persons opinion is illogical because it doesn't align with yours. Opinions by their very definition represents an individuals view or feeling about a topic. I disagree about Houston. Melo is a cancer. Maybe you are right, but again it is an opinion and until the season happens none of us really knows. but yes, you do love to argue. it is literally all over this board. you seem to thrive on it. I don't care. it is what it is. Every message board needs a bully to keep everyone on their toes. ­čśü

    Chip I swear. do you live to argue? lol its been reported that Melo has agreed to a deal. there are several others out there that a quick google search will reveal https://deadspin.com/rockets-add-carmelo-anthony-but-why-1828174439 Utah was widely expected to squeak in at 8 by several major media pundits last year. here is the ESPN take. 8. Utah Jazz Projected wins: 44.7 After losing Gordon Hayward, the Jazz have gone further toward emphasizing defense. In addition to trading for RPM favorite Ricky Rubio and drafting promising perimeter defender Donovan Mitchell, Utah added defensive-minded reserves Thabo Sefolosha and Ekpe Udoh. The result is a defense that RPM projects second in the league behind Golden State, with just enough offense to put the Jazz slightly ahead of other West playoff contenders. And I am allowed to have my own opinion on Nola- but on Minnesota at least we agree. lol interestingly enough after moving to focus on defense, Utah actually did much better than expected in the west.

    I am hopeful that we hit .500 wins and barely squeak into the playoffs. As many have said it all depends on the our health. A couple of factors I think that will help us are as follows. 1. Lebron cut his teeth in the east. he has never experienced a full season in the west where every team (almost) is quality. I think this, and a lack of a good supporting cast could potentially push the Lakers down. Don't get me wrong. he is still Lebron. and that alone will bring wins. Though it does kill me to hear everyone on this board describe us as "aging" and Lebron will be 34 ­čÖä 2. Houston brought on Melo- help me if I am wrong here, but doesn't bringing Melo onto a team cause the team to immediately be terrible? 3. I am not convinced that Nola is a playoff team. Everyone else seems to think so, but I just am not. Maybe they will prove me wrong. But I could see us competing for that 8th spot with them. 4. I have questions about both the Twolves and Utah. I enjoyed watching Utah surprise everyone last year, but can they repeat? Anyhoo, just my two cents. As many have said, it all depends on how healthy we are. I like the idea of using slomo to run point and use conley off the ball as a scorer. We have added some solid vets who will help us win close games. And I do believe Defense wins championships. If they can't score they can't win. 41 wins and an 8 seed. shock the world and upset stupid Golden State

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    I think this is a great move by our FO- though on a personal level it makes me a bit sad. Ben M lived two doors down from me the past year, and he was super nice to my kids every time they saw him. But nice doesn't equal wins. I wish him well. super nice guy
  11. +1 FO did a nice job as it looks for now
  12. Has anyone seen any recent news on either him (Conley) or Parsons? I am curious what prognosis looks like for Fall
