    Why is Jae out? I don't see him on the injury report.

    Grizz Acquire Iguodala, 1st Round Pick from GS

    How are his handles weak? He drives into the paint more than nearly anyone else on the team and doesn't turn it over much. Of the starting five he turns it over less than the others except Crowder, who does very little dribbling. His handles are fine.

    I think good defenses sometimes take longer to develop than offenses because, let's face the facts, players like to play offense more than defense. So where are they most naturally going to develop first? We have some good defenders on the team. Maybe the pot needs to simmer more before it's done. Maybe we need a little more patience. There will be changes to this team. It's hardly a finished product, but the changes aren't all going to happen this season. Listening to some posters it almost sounds as if some are panicking about this season. We're just starting.

    Okay, I reread your post. Only 95% of it was complaining about the roster. Everyone was so happy with the job the FO had done a couple of months ago, but now it seems there are complaints. That's why I asked.

    Your whole post was complaining about roster spots. Isn't that the FO's responsibility?

    So you're saying the FO didn't get any better after CW moved on?

    TRADE DEADLINE

    Did he mean that in a positive or negative way?

    Andre Iguodala/Dwight Powell

    I laughed when I read this, but it's true. I think we should all just be satisfied if he falls off the books and we have a better financial situation. No one is trading any real assets for him.

    We look like a rookie team.

    1st franchise superstar?

    Magic was unique, at least for his time, but his stint at center in the playoffs was a one off thing early in his career. I submit that no single player can take their team to the championship, and there are some great players, superstars, who never win one.

    1st franchise superstar?

    I asked you to give me a definition of superstar and you gave me a list of names. If that's your definition then it would be impossible to have a superstar ever again until the end of time, because no one would be Kobe, Tim, Kareem, Wilt, Micheal, Lebron, Hakeem, Magic and Bird, Shaq, Ai. Now let's talk about PGs. What is the most important statistical category by which PGs are measured? I think most basketball fans and knowledgeable people would say assists, since it's the point guard's job to run the offense and get his teammates involved, wouldn't they? Only two of your select few are in the top 25, and LeBron isn't a point guard and by your assertion Magic Johnson was a point forward (which is absolutely wrong*). If that's the case, then you don't have a single PG on the list since Michael, Kobe, and Allen Iverson were all SGs. So no PGs measure up to superstar level? That's crazy! Don't tell me Jerry West wasn't a superstar. He's the logo for heaven's sake. By my thinking, of past PGs Oscar Robertson, West, Magic, Stockton, Isiah, Kidd, Payton and Nash all were superstars. Today there is no doubt that Steph, Harden, Russ, Kyrie and CP3 are all superstars. I think you need to rethink your definition of the word superstar, IF you even have one. Sorry it's taken a while to respond, but I had to go to work. * If Magic Johnson was not a point guard, then who was running the point for the Lakers? James Worthy? A.C. Green? Byron Scott? Kareem Abdul-Jabbar? No, they weren't, because Magic was running the point. You might compare him to LeBron and ask "what's the difference?" The difference would be that LeBron usually plays along with a point guard, who also guards the opposing PG, whereas Magic did not usually play alongside another PG and he guarded the opponent's PG himself. LBJ could accurately be classified as a point forward as could Scottie Pippen.

    What's your ridiculous definition?

    1st franchise superstar?

    You must be a lot younger than I thought, or else your definition of superstar is pretty screwy. Magic Johnson, John Stockton, Gary Payton, Isiah Thomas, Jason Kidd, Steve Nash? As much as I dislike Chris Paul, I, and the Hall of Fame will disagree with you.
