The Knick killer is out though (Cole), and the Bucks did get Middleton back. We still suck which is true.

We should have just signed Grayson Allen over Fournier, at least he'll cause a fight by playing defense dirty enough to sprain an opponents ankle.

Am hoping the guy we choose with the 11th pick looks good sitting on the bench.

We’re going to flip the 11th pick for the 21st/22nd pick then flip the 21st/22nd pick for the 30th pick

Am trying to think of a roster I like less than ours and honestly could not think of any.

At least last year had that underdog feel that we loved rooting for.

Just googled, and the trade is even worse

Sam Merrill and two future second-round draft picks to Memphis.

If Kevin Knox was on the Hornets roster, we'd have posters here wanting to trade for him. They actually let their young guys play and have fun.

True. Then again, nothing else has worked either. :lol:

Tristan Thompson balling for the Kings. Haliburger and Holmes have some ESP.

Actually, Charlotte and also Washington are underwhelming in their own right. While they’ve been looking at some success recently, the overall talent level is nothing to write home about imo. Beal, Rozier, Harrell and Bridges seem like real warriors, but only one of them is a superstar while the rest of these rosters is a lot of hype and should probably fade come spring time.

Right now the grass is still often greener on the other side, granted, but in my view these two teams aren’t good examples.

Orlando really sucks, but they seem to have a nose for talent. I’d rather have Cole Anthony than Lamelo or Kemba and also rather have Wendell Carter than Mitch. The saddest part is, well, we could.

With that said, it’s a legitimate question: What would Obi look like after two years as a full time starting PF?

They killed any chance of improving with that deal. I hope Jokic leaves

This board wanted MPJ so badly in hindsight, yet the risk has always been there. Gotta look at yourself in the mirror and admit: Passing on him was the prudent thing to do.

We do have the best - or one of the best - benches in the league. We're deep; we have some nice young talent; and he have a lot of our draft picks.

The first change I'd like to see made is at PG. Just start Rose and manage his minutes just like we would normally. Bring Kemba off the bench or waive him if he's not down with that.
