    JA MVP Season!!!

    I never understood the appeal of getting a player's shoe.

    Why do all the Hawks players have such long necks?

    Anyone Have a Problem With Ja Doing This?

    If I understand the rules correctly, points scored in the 1st quarter count just as much as points scored in other quarters.

    I don't know about that. Fully healthy I think the Celtics and Bucks (especially the Celtics) are a notch ahead of us as things stand right now. We'll see what the year brings and if we make any moves and how our young guys improve but I just think the Celtics are so loaded right now if they are healthy it is going to be extremely hard for anyone to beat them. Robert Williams is great and yet they have been destroying teams without him. When he comes back they are going to be very, very good. Luckily we wouldn't have to face them until the Finals.

    Haha. It was all a ploy to goad Tyus into a career night.

    The better question is would paying Kyle 29.7 million preventing us from making any moves we are planning to make next season? I don't think the Grizz plan to do anything but re-sign Brooks and pick up options next season so I'd say the answer to that question is no. In which case the money is irrelevant.

    We could do the deal straight up with Tyus and Danny Green. That would still put us at a salary level for next season at around 140 million assuming we pick up all our options. (Only one we might not pick up is Tillman.) Luxury tax level is projected to be around $162 million. I think that gives us enough room to re-sign Dillon Brooks without going over the luxury tax cap and his salary falls off before we have to give Bane a max extension.

    Miami has had a disappointing season. If it continues Lowry might be a trade deadline mover. I wonder if the Grizz might be interested in a Tyus for Lowry swap if he does become available.

    Although we have one of the most athletic guards in NBA history and that seems to be working out for us pretty well.

    I don't see any way that the Bane doesn't get the max.

    It is probably easier to lose weight than it is to build muscle. I wonder if the staff doesn't try to have Roddy lose 20-25 pounds over the next year. Could make a huge difference.

    There is no apples to apples comparison. We can only compare what this team is this year with what we imagine they would have been had the trade not happened. Ja, Bane, ZW, Santi, Jitty and even JJJ are all young and should all improve this year from last. Our inexperienced coach will improve year over year. Not having Melton is the reason the coaching staff has had to run Ja and Tyus lineups out there which have gotten absolutely roasted. Hopefully Bane and ZW come back healthy and stay healthy all season and then this becomes a non-issue.

    The relevant comparison isn't with last year, the relevant comparison is with what this team would have been this year had we not traded Melton for Roddy. Ziaire and Santi would still be going into their second year had we not done that deal. The only thing that deal did was exchange Melton for Roddy. Now, the final evaluation of this deal won't be for a few years, and I am excited about what Roddy could be; but early signs point to it being a rare miss for the FO.
