you're really comparing young players using their career numbers?

hardaway sucked and turned himself into the 15th ranked shooting guard in rpm. crabbe spent the last two years being the same player and was 73rd last year.


I get you but still think we overpaid for Timmy. Would have rathered developed Dotson or see if Frank can be honed into a playmaking and sharpshooting wing.

I have a feeling we will regret not having that extra cap space for potential trades.

I can see that happening. I dont think its ever really wise to go after a mid level rfa. You need to pay starters like stars if you dont want to get matched.

The best you can really do is go after a guy thats trending upwards and hope for the best.

I'm guessing Patty "Melt" is the Spurs' starting PG because Tony Parker is ready for his AARP cover. The Spurs chose something very interesting, they stayed pretty much intact but made no strides in getting closer to the Warriors. Fascinating.

I was listening to Bomani Jones and he stated that it was pretty clear that Kyrie was offerred in the PG13 trade. One has to wonder why Indiana pulled out.
Edit never mind read the Woj article

This is the same Bomani Jones who predicted the Lions Matt Stanford wouldn't make the playoffs without Calvin Johnson. Um, he did and had a better season.

Paul George is just a superior player to Kyrie Irving and the Cavs had NOTHING but junk to offer Indiana.

This is a funny story. This kid saw his first basketball game less than 4 years ago. A basketball coach couldn't get to his farm with a Jeep, kid had to come pick him up with a snowmobile.

I love Iceland. Great horse back riding and you can bake bread burying it near a hot spring.

Read about this Icelandic viking kid. Good fundamentals.

Clippers got rid of the racist owner and got a guy intent on building a new arena using eminent domain so he can move people that are in his way. LOL.

Your money and spending can be racist, just can't run your mouth about it to your mistress. Right, Donald Sterling? :lol:

Look at those chumps in Silicon Valley. They brag all the politically correct, liberal politics but the % of minorities hired by apple, facebook, etc was in single digit %. :banghead:

I'm pretty sure all those companies hire a good deal of Asians.

Anyways, skill is the only thing that matters when hiring a person. They are chumps for their lefty trendy politics, though.
