As disappointed as I was with Siakam’s playoffs performance, I couldn’t say no to $104.99 CAD off regular price. The jersey was only $39.99 before shipping and taxes. Couldn’t score an OG jersey in medium however.


Just bought Pascal's jersey for 50 with shipping. Thank you!

Where do I buy a jersey from at that price ???


Got mine off realsports’ site. Dunno if it’s that cheap anywhere else. Good luck!

Better hurry, only Red Siakam & Black Lowry left in adult sizes (several youth/child options still though)

Now Siakam's sold out, only a XXXL Lowry left for adult sizes. This thread really helped sell off the last of them !

Does anyone know anything about Jordan Bone? 57th pick by the Pistons last season and had a 2-way with the GLeague.

His numbers from last years combine look good and he did pretty well with Grand Rapids.

It doesn't look like hes under contract?

Updates:

- Kyle has been golfing. Recently interviewed on a course in philly during a KPMG women’s golf event

- Stanley has been running pick up in gyms and working out

- Serge is in Paris but it seems like he has his trainer with him

- Brissett and Boucher are in Toronto I believe. Oshae has been working out at the raps practice facility

- Watson is training in Arizona

- Gasol is back in Barcelona

- OG, Pascal, TD, Hernandez, Mccaw are MIA atm. Can’t seem to find much. Hernandez is back in Miami and I imagine TD is in Mississippi

- Fred was on vacation with the family but he back in Rockford now. Seems like he is gearing up to start his offseason.

- Nurse is in Toronto

- Norm is in San Diego


Honestly I imagine these guys are legitimately training by the end of October, start of November. Assuming the season starts in Feb it’ll give them like 2 months of training

anyone watched or followed (like myself) the NBA finals, will know by that we need a top 5/10 player in order to take the next step, its all nice to see Pascal & fvv develop into good players but we need players like Jason Tatum who can take over the game or goto-guy....the questions that the analysts had about the roster this past season, in the playoffs, when we need a bucket - who will it be?

we need to get that player whether its through trade/draft/free agency...but until we do expect us to be a 1st / 2nd rd team at best

Updates:

- Thomas is back in Wisconsin so I assume he'll get workouts going

- Stanley is real active in some pro runs

- Watson and Pascal are working out together with Todd Ramasar (their agent)

- I have a feeling Kyle is gonna be on JJ's pod in this next 2 weeks so look out for that

- Oshae is in Toronto working out at the Raps facility.


No real updates on anyone else

I never subscribe to what we need somebody has or the league has it right now and available. We always needed Kobe or Kobe equivalent. Never got it and fan wants couldn't help either way. Raps are a magic ingredient from moving right past the rest of the east. Remains to be seen what the formula is. It starts with asset retention and ends with converting value. If Turner and Dipo were available... Hmmm. Works on paper.

I hate playing with guys like Stanley Johnson that take off their shirt in pickup. They're all sweaty and nasty, and you can't really guard them properly because they're so slippery.
