9 mill a year for a 27 year old big is probably market value. Bigs get paid.

I'm sorry but I thought Jordan hill is a solid guy but didn't click with dantoni. I can't believe he started sacre or Kaman over him when he jus had a 20/10 the previous game or even when he's hot during the game

As for linsanity. It's Gna be weird but atleast they get a 1st out of it and hopefully even trade him at the deadline for another pick or something if he gets a good eniugh season to interest a contender

I personally would have told the world I wanna go to Cavs but not while Dan Gilbert is an owner... and then sat back and watched what happens


and look here another important point I wanna make is, does anyone realize that LeBron just dug himself into a hole he will now never dig himself out of.. I mean once the dust settles and he wins a few in Cleveland maybe even surpassing MJ, but then people are gonna realize yea he won championships, but not the way MJ and Kobe won chips because they did it by manning up and sticking with one team their whole life, they didnt bounce after a few years of hardship.....
LeBron is now going to be seen with a suspicious eye because of this... and rightfully so I fully agree because I'm one of those guys that refuses to mix up the teams at drop in men's league basketball because one team is on a multiple game win streak and too good for the other teams. I literally will stay on a shitty team for the whole night just to get that one win against the powerhouse team...
And that's my 90's mentality, but I guess this is the new age method of gunning for championships.... super duper teams
Nah brah. They are enroute to ohio as we speak lol. They will use the "rooting for th Canadians" as the cover up to cheer for the team.

And I agree with u on the old school mentality. Whether it comes to playing or
Watching the game.. Stay true to yourself And don't find an easy way to out on winning I cheering for a team. etc etc

Are you kidding me? Next to LeBron is a great place for a guy like Wiggins to develop.....Cavs said before that they view Wiggins as more of a 2-guard as well btw...

Hill is getting paid because he put up 16/10 ish during the last two months

He's underrated, hustles and works his ass off but is worth 7m max. Swaggy P's contract is a hell of a deal

Gasol rejected a 20m/2yr deal from Lakers

Yea I can imagine LeBron would be all too happy tossin up alley oops all game long and lettin the Canadian youngins fetch and throw down, Wiggy, Benny and poor man's Chris Bosh aka Tristan...
but fck just imagine if they finally manage to get Waiters in check, daaaaaaaaaamn....he's can really fuckin ball, and no I'm not basing that on watching him at the All-star game and that duel he had with Hardaway JR, lol

But I don't think they should dump Wiggins for Love though, I think the Cavs roster is already very very good.... I get it though, because Love AND Varejao grabbing boards together, that just sounds like it should be illegal


They're gonna try to make Wiggins primary objective this season defense, they will want to let him loose on the opposing team's best players, because let's be honest here, most of the buckets he'll be getting this season are going to be off raw athleticism.... the offensive skill will come naturally over time, defense however is 90% effort, so that's the easiest path for him, they will try to mold him into a defensive perimeter beast immediately, and I think that's the right plan for him and the team... LeBron is too old to be chasing around Westbrook and Rose all night

Actually G-Spec, Kobe was gonna bounce but Dr. Buss didn't allow it and MJ did bounce to play baseball soooo

And Swaggy P can come in bricking when Kobe is tired of bricking. Wait Kobe is not gonna be tired of bricking

I hope Gasol goes to Spurs. He deserve to be treated properly.

These mofos Cavaliers. 3 No1 picks, couple of other high-picked studs, a solid rebounder and flopper in Varejao and now Bron. They better win something or they might as well disband.

I hope Cleveland don't get shits. They are disgusting. What kind of team who have had 3 of the last 4 No.1 picks and bunches of other high picks yet still stink. Bet you they will tank again and somehow get another No.1 or No.2. You think they have the trophy in mind signing a guy who never coached N/A basketball as coach.
Oilers?

For the contracts being thrown out there. This is a good deal IMO.. Doesn't matter if kobe is playing or not. We got our 6th man for 4 more years and he can flat out score and he wants to be here and he will get his without a doubt. I'm sure he could've gotten more if he tried the market but decided to give the team a discount

Fixed. Interesting he didn't mention anything about Wiggins in the whole statement.
Although Wiggin's body is not ready yet, maybe playing him next to LBJ at the 2 could potentially work GREAT. He was already known to be adept defensively. Having Wiggins guarding quicker guards could benefit the team.

About InvisiBosh, everyone loses in this situation.
- IMO Chris Bosh does not deserve a max contract. Why he decided to leave Houston high and dry is beyond me, nobody cares about him in Miami, he was the 3rd wheel. He would have been in the perfect position. A strong contending team, and he would finally be able to go back to his natural position at PF creating a dynamic tandem with Dwight Howard instead of banging down low with undersized Udonis Haslem beside him. I guess money talks.
He's in no better spot now then he was back in his dreadlock dinosaur days, with possibly an even weaker supporting cast, new big 3 of Chalmers, Haslem and Bosh?
- Miami overpaid for him, now he's locked in for 5 years and no 2nd star to help him because he basically sucked up most of the cap. $23.6m per year?... c'mon!
- Houston, well we all know they desperately cleared cap to make space for Bosh, now they have a huge hole with no impact FA's left. Deng? He plays the same position as Parsons. As much as I dislike both Bosh and Dwight, it would have been great to see them work together.

Also anyone realize that Cleveland also has Miami's 1st round pick? If the Heat bomb this season the Cavs will have another high round pick!
Or they could trade that pick instead of Wiggins to Minny for Love. I'm feeling that the T'Wolves will settle for ANYTHING instead of letting Kev walk for nothing, a high draft pick is still pretty good deal?

Vince Carter to Grizzlies, so now technically he has played for both Canadian teams hehe.

Pau Gasol going to either OKC or Spurs would be fun to watch. Would be a huge upgrade over lead-foot Perkins and give the Thunder a legitimate 3rd scoring option instead of overworking the dynamic duo.
Spurs would be SWEET, he's already got the big man passing game figured out, trade him for Splitter?... Pau and Tim

Now it's time to dream ... Reports churning that Melo has narrowed down to Chi-town or back to NY. Imagine D-Wade also returns to his hometown of Chicago? He wouldn't be the man there but he has relegated that role a long time ago. He would provide offense, possibly off the bench.
Rose
Hinrich/Wade rotating
Melo
Gibson
Noah

Or maybe they bring back Deng if they fail on Melo?

One things for sure this has been one of the most exciting off-seasons in recent memory!

Also extremely curious what's going on in Kobe's head right now... he said the typical media fluff so far "I like plan B, we can still be competitive, blah blah" but he must be choked, Nick Young? Nash? Lin? It's like 2004 all over again lol ... he's got 2 years left on his contract and the Lakers are pretty much in rebuild form. Well I'm sorta happy he won't get his 6th ring to tie Jordan ...

Chalmers is a FA and I doubt they'd sign him again but who knows lol. Haslem shud be back

If wade comes back which is likely. Their current roster wud be cole,wade,granger mcroberts and bosh then a bench of haslem, Napier, oden

That team vs Lin, kobe Johnson, randle, hill (Nash, swaggy p, henry, sacre, marshall)

That'd be the highest rated finals ever lol

Gasol seems like it will be a sign and trade with the lakers and that should mean Boozer's last yr wud be with the team which at this point I'd be ok with.. But it's not done yet.

Houston did everything possible to woo Bosh, he could have been a hometown hero type of guy to play on a contending team since he's from Texus. They also have no state tax, instead he rather float in mediocrity with the Heat? Infact now the Heat are in limbo, not good enough to win, not bad enough to tank. Playing in the East they will probably still limp into the playoffs, possibly 6th seed and then get destroyed by Chicago/Cleveland/Indiana.

Is the Gasol deal done already? Didn't see anything yet.
Would have loved to see him in San Antonio but still makes Bulls stronger.

Parker/Gino/Kawhi/Pau/Duncan

I wonder if James is gonna wear #23 or #6 ... the fans will need to buy jerseys regardless since... well you know ...


I'm leaning towards 6 though.
