Yeah I seem to remember our 2004 championship parade being a lot more hype.

Does anyone else still not see the big deal with Milwaukee? People talk them up on here like they are a team of the future. They have some young potential, last time i checked, none of it works together. Jabari isn't a bust, but he's not what I thought he would be. Middleton and Giannis are nice. Everyone else, not that impressed. i predict 35 wins for them next year.

I don't expect them to stand pat during this off-season... AKA too early to predict IMO.

Hit the nail on the head. They have some good young pieces, but they have for a couple years now. They just don't seem to develop into anything resembling a winning team or having a star player. Yet they talk like they are. :crazy:

I would make that deal and take Hawes if I was a team that had no first round pick this year. Knicks come to mind.

Actually Lamb wouldn't be bad either if he really is making $6-7M per year for next three years as some sources say.

Phoenix apparently doesn't want draft picks though. They've been trying to trade the ones they have now for veterans, but nobody is biting (for them or Boston). I think Knight would be a nice third guard backing up both spots in the backcourt, but I don't think the two teams are a fit. The only thing that might make some sense is Harris for Knight but I don't think Van GUndy does that nor would I want him to.

I agree. Don't see it happening, but man BK would be perfect as a 6th man combo guard to back up Reggie and play alongside him.

If Teague is healthy they're going to be very dangerous.

Its after the fact, but Brooklyn should've absorbed Lamb and got this pick. Stars aren't lining up to join Brooklyn.

They've decided those aren't viable fits together, but we're supposed to think Knight and Jackson play effectively together?

BTW, looks like the Wizards are planning to offer Joakim Noah the MAX. He averaged 4/9 in 29 games last year, and 7/10 the year before. He hasn't been All-NBA level in over 2 years. Yikes.

I'm just dumbfounded by that Orlando/OKC trade. Since February, Orlando has essentially turned Tobias Harris, Oladipo, and the 11th pick into Ibaka, who only has one year remaining on his contract. What are they thinking?

Ibaka is a good player no doubt, but not worth what Orlando gave up. On the flip side, I love the trade for OKC. I think Oladipo would be an awesome fit at shooting guard, and I'm intrigued to see how Sabonis develops under their system. If Durant ends up staying, they'll be fun to watch.
