    I think this is going to be a frustrating regular season for fans. I do not expect Billy Donovan to find something and stick with it. He will continue to tinker through the entire season.

    Russ - Felton - Christon
    Roberson - Abrines - Huestis
    George - Grant - Singler - Ferguson
    Melo - Patterson - Collison
    Adams - Johnson

    That's not enough to be better than the Warriors...but...

    Or create a real *luxury* tax that no player would sacrifice enough for.

    I've said this a few times, but because the NBA is such a small roster league, you could easily impose an additional tax...

    If Russ doesn't sign the extension then I think the choice is pretty simple:

    A. The season is going really well, George and Westbrook are getting along and playing really high-quality basketball...

    I'm skeptical they'll bring $2.5, especially with the underperformance in revenue this season and forward looking.

    I'm betting closer to $1.75

    Go to hell, Go straight to hell. Do not pass Go, do *not* collect $200.

    Bench probably not going to slow it down. When Russ plays with the bench, that's probably when we go balls to the walls on offense.

    Even still...beyond the pace, the actual execution against West offenses is going to be important.

    I think the 3. I don't see the Paul+Harden thing getting from 0-60 very fast. Wouldn't be surprised to see them 3 games out of 3rd in the first 30 games of the season.

    Honestly it's going to...

    Felton is the minimum of what we *needed*: An NBA backup PG, which we did not have in Christon, and someone who you can trust to do his job if you give him basic responsibilities. He's not gonna...

    I'd love Abrines to play point 10-20 possessions per game. Would be huge for the team.

    If Russ is playing 32 minutes a night, you have to come up with 16 more minutes in the regular season. I'm fine with Christon getting 3 or 4 of those on average, because this team should be able to...

    Saw this on another forum:



    I'm not good at being succinct, but that's pretty much exactly how I feel.

    If we can find a competent backup PG, I really think they need to look at bringing Robes off the bench and letting Abrines fling it around in the starting lineup. I think with Westbrook + George +...

    What do you mean can't trade Roberson now? I mean, I'm sure there's like a 30/60/90 day limit or something like that, but unless there is a no trade clause or a trade kicker, they're fine.

    San Antonio has some serious Guard trouble, and when the 3 other best teams in the West have Curry+KD, Paul+Harden, and Westbrook+George 1-2 punch combos, they're going to be shot out of the gym.

    The question is always what is your 9 man rotation. We've got:

    Patrick Patterson is a great get for what we're paying him. He's also not so good that Donovan will feel bad about playing George at the Four and sitting both of our Power Forwards.

    Would gladly take crawford for a minimum if Billy will agree to play him no more than 16 mpg in the regular season and 10 mpg in the first round or two of the playoffs.

    I don't want a washed-up KD here trying to make it happen with a post-Westbrook roster. Either we make it happen with Westbrook in the next 1 to 5 years or we blow things up and start focusing on the...

    They're not going to blink against the tax bill when it matters. I don't know why people keep talking about the Warriors being willing to spend the money.
