Two days late and no schedule. Chances are, Week 11 will be similar.

The Bulls' package they received for Jimmy ended up being a nice haul, yet was ridiculed by the media.

KD is surging as a 2 way PG. LaVine is a perfect compliment to Dunn. Lauri is a ROY contender. That's 3 starting lineup core pieces for one. Solid deal to be honest.

An interesting story line this year is how the teams that LOST the perceived star, WON the trade, despite the media saying otherwise.

Dipo+Sabonis for one year of PG
Jimmy for KD/LaVine/Lauri
Melo for Kanter/Bulls Pick/McD

Very odd how this happened. Just goes to show that you can't listen to the circle jerks that NBA twitter bloggers tend to start and perpetuate...

Very true. Seems they were called too early. I wouldn't yet say won as Minny is much improved and OKC is starting to rack up wins but they're fairer than initially advertised.

Wolves got the Bulls pick back too.

I love the fact, the "City" jerseys for Houston and Golden State have an Asian motif but ZERO Asians on the team. It's kind of like wearing a Washington Deadskins jersey. Meanwhile, Brooklyn has a large Asian population AND an Asian player (who is injured) and they come up with a uniform that looks like spokes from Soul Cycle.
