Still believe the Lasry's big mouth will continue to haunt us on that deal being nixed (and we lost a 2nd rounder as well).

Yes Bogdan has injury issues, cold streaks and is a high maintenance diva. But I would have loved to have had him tonight against Golden State. He can create for himself and has massive range. We can't have enough of those guys on a team whose alpha has certain limitations due to a lack of outside shooting ability.

I wouldn't do the trade anymore unless we could also get back a guy who can guard the 1 and 2. Having Jrue able to matchup the best guy 1-3 is a key feature I don't want to lose.

I like Donte quite a bit, but I agree. To put it simply and kind of echo you, I think the Bucks would just be a much tougher team to beat if you replace Donte with Bogdan.

I still think Donte's best role would be as a 6th man. I think if we're talking 6th man, he would be one of the best in the league. Donte has that combination of spark off the bench while also being a high quality player. I wouldn't be against the idea of starting Teague at PG and moving Donte to 6th man.

Donte/Portis/Tucker/Pat would be a pretty high quality bench imo. Teague would be intriguing as hell starting with the big 3.

Bogdan is way too slow to create for himself without a ballscreen. Now why would we be setting ballscreens for Bogdan late in games instead Jrue and Khris, or even better yet, simply throw it to Giannis at the elbow.

I wouldn't want to even imagine the Bucks trying to play defense with 2 wings as slow as Bogdan and Khris.

Wood asked out in Milwaukee. The 2 GMs that let him walk? Troy Weaver and David Griffin. Both completely incompetent morons.

If Wood gets moved this offseason, hopefully it's to Milwaukee. He wants to win, and teams are undisputedly better with him on the floor.

Wood for Brook, Forbes, and a 2nd. Get it done.

I love it, but I think Houston is going to want more for a dominant big. Will they get full value? I doubt it because of his nomadic past.

Houston has a chance to get better in a hurry if they nail there pick, and then use there cap space optimally.

I know brook gets alot of hate on this board as does midds and for some reasons i agree with BUT and i know advanced metrics will come my way with this comment but not alot of disappointment and anger for bad performance gets directed at DDV is it a safe comment to say we should expect more than 6 points in 30 mins this time of year.You would like to expect more consistentcy from him as we close out the regular season and get ready for the playoffs yes than 6 points

Depends if he ups his usage, or continues to defer to our stars. Since our stars are all hyper efficient, I hope it's the latter.

Kyrie running rings around everyone, LMA crushing it..Durant steps in off the bench at 100% shooting. Wtf! Game over...

Mark Jackson talking about the suns playing fast paced is really telling everyone on himself. One of the slowest paced teams in the nba this year.

What you need is Greek national team Vs Team USA strategy :D

Slow the game waaaay down
all shots a couple of secs before the clock expires, make it as low scoring game as possible.
Hit them under the basket with Giannis, go for every offensive rebound, make them foul.
Tooth and nail defense, pick them up full court
Overplay KD & Harden, make him sweat to even get the ball
Big rotation, designate 3-4 players just for fouling out. Refs always change it up in the playoffs anyway, they allow a lot more contact.

And then bring out the big weapon to get some easy threes (no, not Spanoulis himself LOL, it's just a play named after him):




Of course we will do none of the above but hey, it's nice to dream.

But seriously in a series against the Nets the only hope is to max out the physicality of the game as much as possible. KD/Harden/Griffin/Aldridge are all great but they're all on the wrong side of thirty and carrying old injuries, you need to make the game about contact and running and take some chances with the refs. Giannis needs to go back to actually defending, and if that means fouling out at the end of a couple of games then that's a risk we have to take.

If the game becomes a shooting and technical skills contest nobody has a chance against this mob.

I don't think we get Suns/Jazz in the playoffs and that would be a shame.

Why did we just send Torrey Craig into the sun, again? I still don’t get it.

Love Jrue, he's a great guy and teammate, but a part of me won't always wonder what would've happened pursuing Paul instead.

I feel like Jae Crowder should actually be 34 and not 30.

Also I forgot this exchange happened until I just now put together that Jae Crowder and Devin Booker are teammates.
