Ibaka is a free agent and will be out of our price range though? We might have to settle for Luke Babbitt :dontknow:

Bam is one of the best guys to throw at AD in the league, we have to hope he is fully healthy if we ever see this team again in the finals. Or lebron is father timed

AD is just that goos, don't pay for false hope of stopping him with ibaka's pp

Ibaka pp gonna neutralize The Brow?

Agreed, but with the way our current team is built, there is no place to put a big plodding 6'9''+ guy who can't shoot. Maybe I'm undervaluing Drummond as I haven't followed him too closely, but I'd hate for us to have to move away from our free-flowing style of play

I have no interest in Drummond or a big who can’t shoot. That’s why i like Serge. He can step out and hit a jumper but still has good size to take pressure off Bam

AD pretty much showed that a big who can shoot is a difference maker. definitely felt helpless when he was grabbing offensive rebounds over a couple of our guys.

Another big that comes to mind is LaMarcus Aldridge.Very realistic option considering the price, fit, and contract coming off the books when we need it to.

When I've heard it's all about winning for nearly a decade from him, maybe in the most important game of his career he do a little more than 12 FGA?

Understandable but you have to understand he played literally all game last game and helped us win.

Its just very hard beating 2 superstars, and Jimmy was never regarded as one, just a very good all-star. But this series he was.

Sure but you can't be the best player on the team and play passive in a win or go home game. It's almost like he didn't give much effort. He had 48 hours to recoup and this is a player who until the last couple of years averaged 37 minutes a night.

Very true. This is the year it could actually happen. Especially since we have a pick to give the Spurs. KO and Iggy’s contracts are also perfect fillers to match that big salary.

It's disappointing, but it is what it is. He came and he played hard, I don't think I could ask anything more from him tbh

I mentioned LMA a while back. Makes a ton of sense on a number of levels.

Dude is old af but still put up 19/7 on good efficiency. We'll get him shooting more threes too, which he is definitely capable of.

Jimmy emptied the clip. He went toe-to-toe with arguably the best players of all time. No shame in coming off 2nd best in that dogfight.

Of course we would've liked more from him today, no doubt he'll be disappointed with his performance, but he was just about the lone reason we didn't get swept off the court consider the outs we had.

Nothing but respect for Jimmy B. Can't wait til we get him some more help.
