    The reason you take Kanter now on his $18M contract is you believe in his upside, given that he's young, that he can provide enough production, and that at the end of that contract, you will have his...

    5m is ridiculous for a player of Dre's caliber.

    Not saying I want him to get the full $12M he probably brings in the open market, but I think he can be a worthwhile player at $7.5M to $8M. That's...

    On the Harden thing: Seems like a guy who digs into his vices when he gets into the most intense moments. Unfortunately, his vices do not really jive with success at the highest level of sports.

    When the trade first happened, it was less a "Houston just ****d OKC" and much more of a "What the hell happened, we will have to see"

    Harden then dropped like 43 and 45 in his first 2 games and...

    If the Rockets win, it's not because Harden is some otherworldly talent. The fact of the matter is, they're a super well constructed hitting on all the right cylinders at the right time. If the...

    For those who think I'm the ultimate Presti caper, I do want to say this:

    Given that KD was never a 100% guarantee to come back, trading away DJ Augustin was a terrible move. Neither moved the...

    naw...a 7.5% increase in cap space beats out a lot of raises. Maybe for the more forward looking teams or teams that are several years out, but otherwise, I think we have one more round of players...

    I can't buy the hate on him due simply to the fact that when this team was a contender, he put on a clinic of how to compete at the highest levels. The *only* reason we didn't...

    The jury is still out on that one. There's a lot of promise...but you see that in a lot of NBA players. If Abrines does not develop some consistency next season, he's not going to work out in the...

    Of Course Presti deserves some of the blame for the KD incident. What you're failing to see, SG1, is that literally any other alternative road was just as bad or worse.

    The repeater tax doesn't have roster building limitations, having >90% of your cap-space in 4 players has real roster building limitations. Even having 2 players take up 60% makes it pretty difficult.
  32. It wasn't about paying the tax...it was about not...

    It wasn't about paying the tax...it was about not being able to sustain 3-max players 4 years before primes. If Presti had signed him to that 4-year deal, he would have been up after this season,...

    Maybe yes, maybe no. It would be interesting to see foul stats.

    I will say with Russ's usage rate being so high, I imagine his foul calls are closer to how they will get called in the playoffs. I...

    That's not true.

    But it also depends on how you grade a player at 4/8. The vast majority of NBA fans would have called Russ a 4 in his rookie season. Same with Harden. Of course, they were always...

    They're both UFAs, yes. That doesn't really affect the cap situation though.

  38. I don't think you can sign and trade Livingston...

    I don't think you can sign and trade Livingston on draft night. And anything you bring back better be bare minimum contracts or you're taking money out of Iggy's pockets.

    My Caphold numbers on Curry and Iggy appear to be off. It favors the Warriors but doesn't drastically change the situation. Iggy can make more money, than $2M (closer to $7M) but he'd still have to...

    It has nothing to do with paying the luxury tax and it's the same damn reason why I get tired of talking to people about why the Harden trade was necessary.

    This CBA crushes you for hoarding even...

    That $101M is not going to be so kind to the Warriors or Durant:

    Klay + Green + Looney + Jones + McCaw + J. Thompson = $38.53M
    Curry Cap Hold = $23.01M

    All of that together is just a shade...

    It would only be on next year's salary, so it's not that big of a deal. The following year he has a player option so it's not considered in the kicker.
  43. I'm not sure anybody comparing Russ with Jordan...

    I'm not sure anybody comparing Russ with Jordan is saying he's as good of a player.

    The reality is that Russ possesses certain qualities that few players outside of Jordan have ever possessed and...

    That play that he got the triple double on last night is exactly why you want Russell Westbrook rebounding the ball. When other players grab that rebound, that split second between the pass off to...

    I would really like to see a statistic that measures the variability of a player's performance in wins versus losses to see just how much of an impact certain players like Adams and Dipo have on a...

    We are a Top 10 defensive team. If you can explain to me how Top 10 is bad, then I'm all ears.

    Every team routinely gets blown up by the likes of Harden, Leonard, James etc. It has nothing to do with Roberson.

    You will find nobody on this forum arguing that he's a viable player on offense...
