Even the sisters.

Jontay Porter we thought was going to be a great player but I don't think he's ever going to get over his injuries to play NBA ball.

If I were the Wizards I would be trying to maybe include Bradley 2 Denver right now for Michael Porter it is a risk reward thing

Whenever I hear a serious nerve injury like MPJ's, I think Robert Pack. Initially, his injury wasn't expected to be very serious, but he never really recovered from it. Maybe medical science has improved since then, but I'd be too scared to trade for MPJ - especially with the family situation, and he's already had a major injury himself.

Yup. I'm not trading for MPJ. There's a real chance he is damaged goods. And he just signed a 5-year, $150M deal.

After the Wizards GM really went and did it by having an imaginative, strong, draft day. I totally feel this as well;

Good to see Mathews finding a home.

I don't have a big problem with the organization letting him go though. After trading for KCP and drafting Kispert, there really wasn't any room left for him on the roster. A team can only use so many 6-5 guys who can't dribble.

Perhaps one can reconsider the wisdom of drafting Kispert in the first place. But once he was drafted, Mathews really didn't have a spot here.

I think the Warriors will end up crushing them - despite the Suns playing tremendously so far.

Lakers get great shooting games from Lebron, AD, and Westbrook, but barely beat 4-16 Detroit by 4 to reach .500. The Lakers should be better than they've played, but you are what your record is. I don't think they realized how important Caruso was to winning games. They should have paid him instead of trading for Westbrook.

Yup. Caruso, KCP, Kuzma and Harrell combined make about $4M less than Westbrook plus 3 end-of-bench vet minimum guys.

They probably could have shopped Harrell for a guard with a little juice to bend a defense.

Javale McGee is the lucky piece for the Suns and they're going to win it all
