Melo and amare should thrive in this offense. If Jeremy Tyler and cole Aldridge looked that good in summer league then us knick fans have a lot to be excited about. Make room for all the bandwagoners when we take off

Man, looking at the standings...if the Clippers hover around the 6 to 8 seed they could really cause early round problems for one of the top west teams come playoff time, assuming they have a healthy PG and Kawhi comes back in some capacity.

I don't think they have the top to bottom talent to beat us, but I could see them giving Phoenix or especially Utah a run for their money.

I think they'd be a threat to the Warriors unless Klay is at peak form in the playoffs.

That means the best stretch in his career, which was in the 2019 Finals, where he shot an ungodly percentage before his injury, when he was putting it in Kawhi and Siakam's faces repeatedly.

Clippers with a healthy Kawhi are the biggest matchup issue for the Warriors IMO, also have a coach that really knows what he's doing during the PS as well.

I'd like to know why the Pistons voided the trade for Bol Bol, sighting "Medical grounds". That's gotta hurt for a player. Talk about awkward going back to the team that was trying to ship your ass outta town.

Apparently they were told by the league not to do it again.

Yeah, if I were the Kings I wouldn't be posting bulletin-board fodder. They can't really afford to piss off opponents.

the Mavs waived WCS to sign Chriss for the remainder of the season. I wonder if any NBA team will take another look at WCS? I could see a team possibly picking him up for a hardship exemption but not much else.

The big man merry go round. Something to ponder the next time someone says “just go sign a vet big”.

Don't know why they would, WCS sucks and doesn't even like the game.

I know he's not really popular around here but DLo has impressed me in Minnesota. He makes some big shots and along with Beverley seems to be a vocal leader for that team. I'm glad he's not on the Warriors anymore but if I'm a Minnesota plan it doesn't bum me out that he's on the roster.

From what I can gather around this website, Minnesota fans don't like DLo at all. He's a constant net negative on the court, and his slow ball iso chucking ways take away shots from KAT and Antman. Then there is the defence, it's league worst bad.

A couple weeks ago somoene on Reddit said D Lo has been 'balling out' in Minny and that it wasn't a bad trade for them. I replied and pointed to...well...all of his shooting stats. I got downvoted to oblivion and the guy replied saying I shouldn't be allowed to talk if I haven't seen him play :lol:

So there definitely are supporters, but man is that guy a passenger. And what a bust of a trade for them.

Wolves are at .500 just over half way into the season. Probably their best season in several.

Currently their 2022 FRP is #16, just outside the lottery.

Glad the 2021 pick conveyed, since that got the Warriors Kuminga.

Of course the 2022 pick could potentially have been #1 but those were low odds as it turns out.

I'm beyond thrilled that the pick conveyed and they ended up getting Kuminga. Pretty much a best case scenario!
