  1. What about the white dude from Duke

    I think Mike Krzyzewski will probably stay at Duke.
  2. Jeff Bzdelik would be nice to bring back. I thought he did a nice job on the defensive end when he was here with Dave, and I think he had a positive impact on Houston's defensive improvement.
  3. The 2018 Free Agents

    I don't believe either KCP or Will Barton can be had for the MLE. Even if KCP does sign with the MLE, I don't believe it would be in Memphis. I still think Tyreke Evans is the best talent available for the MLE, and that is iffy for several reasons.
  4. How Stupid Can A Franchise Be

    If I knew the person being drafted would give us the career of Manu Ginobilli, I would take it, easily. It's not just his own abilities, but it was also his willingness to be a great team player. If he's in a bigger market, especially in the Eastern Conference, he's a bigger star. After Kobe and DWade, I'm not sure there was a better SG over the last 15 years, and some might take him over DWade. In the last 10 drafts (08-17), of the last Top 4 draft picks (40 guys), only these guys have had a better career than Manu: 08 draft: Russell Westbrook (yes); Rose, Beasley, Mayo (No) 09 draft: Harden (yes); Griffin (maybe); Thabeet & Evans (No) 10 draft: Wall (probably not); Turner, Favors, Wes Johnson (No) 11 draft: Kyrie (probably); Derrick Williams, Kanter, T. Thompson (no) 12 draft: Ant Davis (yes); Kidd-Gilchrist, Beal, Dion Waiters (No) 13 draft: Oladipo (probably not); Anthony Bennett, Otto Porter, Cody Zeller (No) 14 draft: Embiid (maybe); Wiggins, Parker, Aaron Gordon (No) 15 draft: KAT & Porzingis (maybe); D. Russell & J Okafor (No) 16 draft; Ben Simmons (maybe), Brandon Ingram, Jaylen Brown, Dragen Bender (probably not) 17 draft: Fultz, Lonzo Ball, Jayson Tatum, Josh Jackson (probably none of these)
  5. How Stupid Can A Franchise Be

    If Grizzlies lose both those games, the Suns probably don't win the Sacramento and Dallas games down the stretch. They won them because they had a lead in the race for ping pong balls, and they could afford those wins, but they were always going to stay below the Grizzlies down the stretch. They won 1 game in February and March (Grizzlies).
  6. With The 32nd Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    The other option i could see wallace is what you are describing here. A mid to late projected 1st rounder who falls.
  7. With The 32nd Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    The Wallace way would look to see what elite HS player has fallen in the draft based on 1 years ago projections I wouldn't be surprised if they buy another 2nd round pick
  8. It's the Final Countdown!!!

    Anyone attending any of the watch parties?
  9. I know this only has less than 1 day left, but it seems like an interesting opportunity. Put down deposit at $1/game price, and commit to paying whatever the ping pong balls say. I don't know if it is still going on, but it gets you in the FEF for pretty cheap. Must put down deposit before the lottery.
  10. Ping pong time.

    What if the trade is from the 2nd position to the 3rd (i.e. 2nd pick + Chancun) for the 3rd pick and top 55 protected 2nd round pick in 2021?
  11. Ping pong time.

    What if it is moving down from #2 to #6, but getting rid of Chancun? (I probably wouldn't do it, but I'd think a lot about what moving on from that contract would be worth in terms of draft spots)
  12. Referendum on bringing back TA & Z-Bo fails

    Tony is done physically for playing a full season. If he had developed a 3 pt shot, he'd still be in the league, but he didn't, and it cost him millions. I'm not opposed to Zach, and would happily consider Chandler Parsons trade for Zach (and probably need Kosta Koufos to make salaries work). I'm not sure why Sac would do that trade, but whatever, I'm not going to lose sleep on that trade.
  13. Ping pong time.

    One week until the draft lottery.
