That doesn't really mean anything. You can't save your minutes to use them when you're older. Trust me on that.


Sadly I know really well that father times is a b**** any I'm only 28 lol.

You can't save minutes, but every minute less on the court is a minute of stress the body didn't have to go trough. 4 seasons of basketball worth of minutes have to count for something right ;)

I know coming from a Dragic fan sounds very bias to some. But I'd be saying the same about any player. I just think for some being 31 in the new 36.

p.s.: As a Dragic fan I'll watch him play anywhere he goes, so trade him if that's good for Miami. I just like seeing him in a Heat jersey.

I agree that Dragic still has years of effective play in front of him, I just don't think it has to do with limited NBA minutes. A perimeter player with an effective outside shot has a chance to play until he's 40. Unless he suffers a serious injury, Dragic's decline will not be soon or sudden as some fans believe.


You don't think if the NBA season was 60 games instead of 82 most players would be playing at a higher level at 35-40 of age then they are right now?

Even if we don't agree, at least you see my point, here I was thinking my English is getting worse than my knees :lol:

doesn't make sense, unless we can land Fultz/Ball/Fox/DSJ



I agree. In the "Riley" thread I proposed the idea of packaging Dragic with players and our pick for Melo and NY's pick. The idea being to snatch a young PG with a high ceiling on a small contract and to couple him with a reliable end of the game ISO scorer. It also manages to maintain cap flexibility to resign Johnson and Waiters.

Less mins would mean less chance of injury, and less stress on the joints of the big guys.

I don't think from a cardio stand point it matters with players at this fitness level. They are not NFL players packing on extra size to there frame, taking NFL collisions and they they are not Tour de France guys burning heart muscle to keep a certain pace... they are somewhere inbeteeen.

I think he's great, but not an all star. He's probably middle of the pack as far as PGs go.

If the team sign Gordon this season will show us how good Goran really is. As he will have players around him who can score and don't need the. All in there hands all the time. If his numbers stay close to what they are and the team is winning a lot many may be undervaluing him. Ill gladly wait and see what this season shows us.
