2018-19 NBA Season - New and improved!

Recommended Posts

Harden knows he has no shot at a championship (best chance was last season) so might as well get all the individual accolades he can. He's a one man entertainment machine.

Went to the Pelicans-Pistons game last night.  Pels lost by 4, 98-94.

 

Jahlil Okafor went 1-5 at the free throw line, those 4 points being the margin of victory. 

 

Simple freaking free throws, man. This is not rocket science.

Good for Kemba. I hope D-Lo makes it as a reserve.

 

Sometimes the NBA's pettiness is incredible. Nice work Golden State:

Giannis is the top vote in the EC, will select reserves. Awesome feeling as a Bucks fan.

Looks like the inevitable has finally happened. Anthony Davis wants out of New Orleans. Where does he go? 

 

L.A.?

Does Portland finally add their long missing front court piece?

Nurkic, an expiring deal or 2, and or a pick or 2?

 

Him up front + Lillard and McCollum would be absolutely insane. 

 

You`re right though. It seems like L.A. is the destination. Several good young players and expiring deals.

It's the Trailblazers, they will always find a way to disappoint.

 

However, I'm not sure that Portland can really do any moves since the future is in question following the death of Paul Allen, Jody Allen was told of a "three year business plan" from Vulcan Sports CEO Chris McGowan, but is adding Davis with an extension part of such a plan?

If they want to compete for a title it is. Otherwise, like the past they`ll just continue to boast of one the league`s best back courts, with absolutely nothing up front. Early playoff exit after early exit.

Also important to consider that Davis will have a pretty significant say in where he's going, too; the old commit-to-resigning veto.

Giannis already reached out to him about coming to Milwaukee. How awesome would that front court be? Thon Maker has said he want's out want s a more important role on another team. I don't know if NO would be that team, but at least there is a first piece to add to a trade package.

The NBA has a rule that fines players or representatives for making public trade demands? Really?

 

Anthony Davis was fined $50,000 today.

The latest today is AD will only re-sign with the Lakers if traded, Kyrie wants to play with LeBron again, and Klay is also interested in playing in LA.

 

If I had to put money on it, I would say none of those things happen.

Did Lonzo say he wants a third team involved if he's traded because he doesn't want to go to N.O.?

He should not want to go to New Orleans.  Since drafting Davis, the Hornets/Pelicans are 240-362.  During the same time, the Bobcats/Hornets are 241-361 and that year, they drafted Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Meanwhile, the Kings have been 202-340.

 

The Pelicans' training staff is considered substandard too.  They just bring over staff from the Saints.  

They got somewhat better in the 2017-18 season

I've got a lot of doubts on Kyrie, but one of AD or Klay would not surprise me at all!

 

Part of the reason I think this went public is to give the Lakers leverage over the Pelicans to get something done, because it's hard to see them as putting together the best possible deal. Caveat is that I remain not very high on the young Lakers talent, so that's the lens I've got here. (Anyone seen D'Angelo Russell lately? Oh, huh.) Of course the Pelicans are also pretty inept, so who knows.

Ring-chasing cowards, all.

 

Anthony Davis, now Kristaps Porzingis.  It's nothing new, but it's intensely frustrating as an NBA fan with no real team loyalties.  In these instances, why even have more than 8 teams in the league?  Contract across the board and stop kidding yourselves. 

 

Time to truly review the rules and decide how much the talent deserves to set the conditions.  This is absurd.

Okay, sure on AD, but leave Porzingis out of this; no one competent deserves to be banished to the Knicks.
