Look at this roster. Orlando is lowkey stacked.


LOL

I was just mentioning this to my brother who’s a Magic fan.

Looks like a very fun team on paper.

But I dont expect them to be good. Fultz and Isaac are coming from major injuries. Wagner looks raw in his first gane. Lots of talent though

We've been a consistent winner for a few years now. We have a respected front office and coaching staff in place. We have a star.

So much of free agency is having capspace or having the ability to create capspace. This particular year, we didn't have either.


L I F E S T Y L E

Players nowadays earn too much that the feeling in winning a championship is nowhere near as good as spending your $40-50M annual earning the right way.

If this is a corporation, you have a lot of overpaid employees who dont see its worth it to move up the corporate ladder.

Winning or losing, you still get the same amount of money. But the value you get from that money depends on how you spend it. With a their guaranteed overpaid salary, even if they dont come and work.

Decision also gets dictated by the preference of their family. Like between LA or Detroit, I think its better to raise a family in LA. Specially for these gold digging wives

Thats how i see it


Best video to explain why



Jimmy should have posted this on his social media account when he was s&t to Miami

The shotcreator Kobble is waiting for.

Also explains why we’re silent after adding almost a handful of centers in the draft and free agency

M2 backcourt. Monta and Maxey

Lol, this is Luka's team now. Kidd won't last past a year if he does this. Imagine forcing Luka to do anything at this point.

Luka should get out ahead of it, demand a trade now. Only to Philly of course :lol:
It is highly unlikely that the Sixers will agree with your Ben Simmons evaluation for the purposes of a trade.

Lmao. These stories are wild.

I will agree Thon Maker not having an iPhone is a major violation. Nobody likes the guy who makes the chat green bubbled. :lol:

Trading Chris Paul and 4 first rounders for 31 year old Russell Westbrook
Thinking about trading for 31 year old Dame Lillard with $196m left on the contract
Attending a workout for Lance Stevenson

Hard to rank these Morey blunders

I definitely wouldn't have attached a 1st rounder with Capela to move him. Weird value for a Covington rental.

Maybe this is an American thing. If you have an iPhone here you're either a woman or a trendy dork.

Haha it ain't that deep. Just sucks for group chats when it becomes wireless data instead of everyone being on iMessage.
