Damn it, i just saw that celtics are going to try and trade Kemba....Why do i get this bad feeling that CLiff and the FO are going to try and fast forward this build by adding one of Cliffs guys and giving up valuable pieces to do it?

Yah, I'd trade all these young guys that I love for a 36 year old Lebron in a second. Might still be the best player in the league...at 36.

No one can joke around anymore without someone getting offended. His problems were with the bubble. 100 days in a hotel room.

I would find another team to root for if we give up pieces and trade for Kemba.

Yeah, the issue with this being the takeaway is when they followed it up with:

“You think they’ll have trouble in free agency” and he says “absolutely! Nobody is going there.”

So.. he’s not really talking specifically about the bubble. He’s a douche just like Kuzma and that’s the reason I’ll root for every small market team 100% of the time I watch the travesty that is NBA basketball.

That's just reality tho, epsecially for team that has "sucessful half brother" Miami Heat near by.

It sucks. Only way how to build small market team is to land loyal superstar. Basically some conservative family guy who disslikes bright lights of TMZ but is not afraid to shine through pressure of high stake basketball games. Basically you need Jokic or Giannis :lol:
Prediction day after Vuc, Gordon, Evan departure - most fans who are celebrating birth of new rebuild will be crying how rebuild is painful before 2022-23 season ends.

I think Cliff can guide our young team and instill good habits for them. However, if we do that bonheaded mive just to appease Cliff, id be the first to give him the boot.

Only way id tske Kemba is if Tatum was attached.

Orlando needs a long-term 2-guard. Walker has nothing to do with the growth this Magic team need to find.

He’s solidly in the conversation. Depending on what attributes you value a case can be made.

Binge watching right now. :D


I watched it as it was first coming out in Sub years ago. One of my favorite anime's of all time and it is very well done. The English dub is pretty well done too.

Also, everyone mentioning Haikyuu, that one is really good too.

This playoffs has really shown us that Offense beats Defense in the modern NBA.
If you have enough shooting, pull-up shooting, and ball movement; there’s simply no scheme, nor enough length in the world to defend it.

Of course lol, One Piece is one of my favorite anime's. So far nothing has topped Yu Yu Hakusho for me but One Piece is coming close.
