Looking forward to next year, I just can't see the team construction that would let the Warriors beat the Lakers. Without Andre, they have nobody to guard LeBron, and AD has scored on Draymond like he doesn't even exist. You can't beat that Laker team trying small ball against them.

The Suns really convinced Josh Jackson to skip that meeting with the Celtics after Ainge had already took the flight to Sacramento.

BREAKING FUTURE NEWS: Anthony Davis is VERY SURE about how he will approach free agency. 8-)

So after taking my time machine to travel to the future for a short time, I found somethings out. 8-)
I couldn't stay long, so don't waste your time asking questions. :lol:

Anthony Davis will be playing for the Los Angles Lakers next season. :o

Oh, and Knicks will have another losing season because they still believe that Kevin Knox, Frank, DSJ, and the rest of the bench squad will somehow develop and take them to the promised land. Moreover, I heard some of the Knicks players are still untradable. :o :lol:
I kept trying to tell the poor Knicks organization and fans that superstars are needed and not to pass up the opportunity if we can get them even for a so-called high price like the Lakers had to pay. I even had to go back and forth arguing with them. Moreover, I also tried to tell the Knicks and fans that they will once again see a superstar winning another championship again next season, but their focus is to develop the bench instead of having them develop as role players under superstars. Yeah, I know the Knicks don't have many chances to get a star player, but my point is when they know do have the opportunity to sign star players or trade for them, they have to take the opportunity and worry about the price later as other successful teams do.

In addition to wanting to continue his career with the Lakers, AD said he no longer wants to play for the Knicks after they fail to trade their bench players and draft picks for his service. :cry: He would like to wish the ######### Knicks organization the best of luck going forward. :nonono:

I got respect for his decision. He didn’t pull a Durant and bandwagon, and we don’t need to have arguments from salty Lakers fans about how the Lakers “needed” Kawhi to win and how his championship obviously matters just as much. He still got time, and his legacy is set anyway.
The mission: to end false narratives about the Knicks

Example of Fake Narratives:
-The Melo era should be celebrated
-Phil Jackson was a good GM
-Randle could be good as a third option

I hope he stays with ESPN as a commentator for selfish reasons. But good for him if he gets back to coaching. I just hope he isn’t used as a scape goat because it’s hard to win with Westbrook.

Yea, he is great as a commentator and loved him as coach of the Knicks. Would be interesting to see him back at coach, but hopefully it all works out for him

I feel like the value/lack of value of rim running bigs hasn't been discussed in a while.

Please continue.

Why are teams constantly recycling coaches? Are there only 10 competent people in the entire world who can coach an NBA team?

Yeah that Westbrook Harden combo is terrible. I would like to see him take another shot at coaching though. I think clippers job is a better fit for him though.
A new era or error?

Yeah I think Kawhi choosing the Clippers is okay. He just shouldn’t have played GM in forcing them to trade all that for PG.

Sucks more for the Clippers though than Kawhi who already got his rings and accolades.

“The Dallas Mavericks are gonna be at the head of the line in pursuing Giannis. They want to have a 3rd star,” said Windhorst. “They want to keep their books clear for 2021, I wouldn’t expect them to add any major free agents this year. They’re going to wait.”

I guess that’s good news for our pick

Talk about being at the right place at the right time.I am sure that Derek Fisher would be a serious NBA coaching candidate had he been lucky enough to win a championship off Lebron’s coattail.
