Love the drama of this off season. And FA has not even start.


Wizards effed everything up just to get 3 scrubs :nonono:

The Wizards, with no cap space, got 3 young prospects and a 2nd round pick for a little cash. They would be fools not to do it.

They’re signing the wrong FA. Kyrie is a ball hogging diva. Russell was working out, they needed a forward, like Tobias Harris.

Russell/Dinwiddie
Lavert/Joe Harris
T Prince/D Carroll
T Harris/Kurucs/RHJ
Allen/E Davis

They roll with this core for 1 year, I guarantee they shake the playoffs and harness success.

Nets are purely signing Kyrie as bait to get KD. Very risky if it doesn't work.

I wonder if everyone is on the General Board is pissed at the Lakers and Clippers and Nets for buying superstars instead of building through the draft and trades.

Somehow, I doubt it. Because hypocrisy is.

Depending on the Clippers health, this team should easily be the favorites to come out the west as much as I hate to admit it. The offense is great but holy hell that defense is just insane. A bunch of top tier defenders at their positions to go along with their arsenal of major scorers starting and off the bench. I literally see zero flaws on the Clippers roster this upcoming season and their easily the only team in the nba to have that quality. They have great shooting, great defense, awesome depth, experience, veteran presence, inside offense and defense, great front office, hall of fame coach, speed, athleticism, size and length, highly motivated and involved owner, and intelligent high iq players. With the exception of maybe adding another playmaker (TJ McConnell, Rubio, Darren Collison (before retirement) or Exum), these guys shouldn’t have any issues winning at least 60+ games.
The scariest question in NBA history.

Westbrook to Rockets, CP3 to OKC. Watching Westbrook and Harden together is going to be both hilarious and awful.

Ugly basketball meets very ugly basketball. I just wonder what the other 3 Rockets on the court are supposed to do; maybe they can sell popcorn?

How many stars didn't change teams this year?

My favorite quote of the off-season was when a writer described Kyrie as a "patchouli-stankin lure" to get KD to the Nets.

Of the 24 players in the 2017 all-star game, only 7 are still on the same team.

Curry/Klay/Green with GS
Giannis/Harden/Lowry/Love for the rest of the league.

Curry, Klay, Green, and Giannis are the only ones in thst group that are with original team that drafted them.
