OKC even has the rights to Toronto's 2013 pick as long as it isn't in the top 3. Toronto has the second worst record in the NBA.


I'd bet my house on Toronto finishing with the fourth worst record then. :lol:


More like worst record with the fourth pick.

I don't see a stern fix this year. No clear #1, so there isn't a real reason to.

One thing he usually gets criticized for is the lack of rings on his hands. This is kinda true but when you consider which teams he ran into as a HC during the playoffs, particularly when his teams were contenders, it could be just bad luck.

Question: Does Reggie Miller get criticized for lack of rings? Karl Malone? John Stockton?

You and your technicalities. Just because those players, along with Charles Barkley, are discussed and/or critiqued because of their lack of championships throughout the season every season, and even more frequently in the playoffs, you just had to do it.

To clarify: We always hear how Adelman is overrated because he hasn't won anything. Were those players considered overrated? No.

Actually yes. Some people consider them overrated, cause they didn't win any chips.

I've never bought into the ring argument as much as most people. Stockton and Malone, for example, were great players. Their teams won 74% of their games over a five year period and those teams were not that deep. Stockton, Malone, Hornacek, Russell, Ostertag, bunch of scrubs basically. They went to the finals two years in a row and lost to Jordan/Pippen/Kukoc/Rodman. All that tells me is Jordan is greater than them. Well, yeah, he was. Doesn't mean Malone wasn't great himself.

Adelman would have a ring right now if not for the blatant game 6 fix for the Lakers that one year. And I intend no hyperbole here. That game was as fixed by the refs as a crooked boxing match.

I remember it like it was yesterday ... biggest hose-job I've ever saw in the NBA. Someone should have been arrested.

Oh great, Chris Webber calling the game next Thursday at Target Center (with Kevin Harlan and Reggie Miller). Get ready for some "manna" jokes!

I saw that too and was like "Oh crap." Webber vs Kahn part two. Also, he now has a lot of fire with Love's recent comments. Combine that with a blowout game and wolves looking bad... The perfect storm :lol:

we matchup well; OKC has the size and defense to handle our frontcourt, and we have AK and Rubio for Durant and Westbrook...in theory this will be a BARN BURNER
