No question him and Herro have been absolute marvels in this playoffs. And props to their coach for also getting them to play great team defense so no one is completely abused from lebron or Davis

Coach seems to be pretty happy abt the job he's done this summer ! What do you guys think ?


Sekou got fired by his agents this summer. Major red flag.
Casey has been praising Sekou for the last few weeks.

And Casey wasn't afraid to smack him through the media during the season so it's possible it's not a "positive" blow job during mini-camp.

Miami Heat need some firepower. Would they be interested in trading for Blake Griffin?

You can't be serious.

They're eyeing off Giannis in 2021 free agency! Would give them:

Bam
Giannis
Jimmy
Herro

I was not being serious. It'd be nice if someone wanted our nearly untradable"assets", though.

Yeah lets find a GM more desperate than SVG who also has a future in broadcasting.
You need 2-way wings, 2-way shooting bigs, and you can't allow low iq players on the court. Assist/turnover ratio is crucial. Shooting point guards are icing on the cake IF they are plus defenders.
Weaver & Casey, govern yourselves accordingly!

Article states: "Physical in today’s game doesn’t mean what it meant in the Bad Boys era – their games would require four hours now between foul calls and replays for “hostile acts” – but it is no less required to win."

Some of us have said that already here and the article goes on, points to Miami as a "defensive" team

Casey quote: "Playing that style is the most important thing,” he said. “That style of toughness, physicality, taking charges. We worked on taking charges probably for the first time in my coaching career in a long time (at team camp). We did it early in my time in Toronto – getting used to contact, enjoying contact, the flesh-to-flesh contact you’ve got to have to win in today’s game. That’s Miami, that’s Boston.”

Here's hoping it's not all post mini-camp glow & pr cause this team needs to build a identity and rep for working hard.

Winning will come if we get talented, hard working guys. Not just talent.

How?

I say it's just as realistic to just have someone in the Piston's front office develop a cloning ray. Then our lineup would be:

Kawhi Leonard (with size knob on the ray gun turned up to 1.25x)
Kawhi Leonard
Kawhi Leonard
Kawhi Leonard
Kawhi Leonard

And a bench of:
Leonard/Leonard (1.25x of course)
Leonard/Leonard
Leonard/Fennis Dembow (human victory cigar)
Leonard/Leonard (also splitting time at the 3 with Leonard )
Leonard/Leonard

The Leonard mix is possible, he trades svi and has him as a pistons backup.
