Well, we see Detroit is on the draft pick accumulation plan :lol:

far more interesting from brooklyn's perspective. jordan has been good for them. per 36 averages:

13/14 + 2 blocks on 71% ts while playing more than 20 minutes a game

goes to show that every team has a financial choke point

Not really a financial choke point. He was the piece to ensure that KD and Kyrie signed on.
They barely used him and with Claxton, Griffin, Aldridge, Millsap in the fold, there is no need to keep him around.

I was referring to the playoffs. They took him out of the lineup during key times and series.

Thats why lebron only keeps friends in the NBA who are superstars or vet min guys. KD should have known better when forming this super team.

Shaq seems to have gotten way WAY WAY stronger those championship years with the Lakers. Our Championship guys like Longley and Rodman never got turned into paste like that, and we are talking David Robinson not Tim Thomas. I remember old Shaq frustrating prime Noah making him pick up a bunch of fouls.

But I thought Shaq was just big with no skills? He was big, but bug with good footwork and speed. Big and string was part of his skill set for sure but everyone forgets how fast he could move when inspired. He also had an insanely quick jump for a man his size. He was easy to hate too because I mean what do you do against that? This was the admiral who was also super skilled and strong.

Hey guys, I don't know where to ask, but I can't see the Bulls board listed anymore under team forums here. Since I use the realgm app and using that index to get here, it's annoying me big time. Anyone else got this problem?

I feel like if The Last Dance didn’t drop last year, the Bulls franchise would be more known for this ‘angry robot reading a book’ meme than as a basketball team. Losing sucks.

T.J. Warren Update
Posted: Sep 07, 2021

Indiana Pacers forward T.J. Warren’s stress fracture in his left foot is healing during the rehabilitation process; but not at the pace previously anticipated. He remains out indefinitely, and further updates will be provided as warranted."


Not good. I actually quite like his game, hope he can get through this.

I was never a fan of his style of play, but Shaq was one of the most dominating players the NBA has ever seen. In his prime, when you passed him the ball down low, it was very difficult to stop him. The NBA didn't really know what to do to counter him (which is why hack a shaq happened). Imagine if he had the same drive of someone like Jordan? We'd probably be talking about GOAT with Shaq.

But that just isn't who he is (even though he was motivated...you don't get as far as he did without a certain level of motivation).

I'm not sure what they could really offer the Sixers.
