Wanna make a bet at 29.5 wins?


It's a longshot and my best case scenario. It's not betting material.

That's why I put the line at 29.5. Gave you a 5 game buffer.

Signing Jake Delhomme and then signing Dan Marino is not redundancy.

Time to get that 4th or 5th spot in the playoffs in 2020.
Acquire Chris Paul.

This front court talent needs a hall of fame qb to activate it!

Stop wasting time!
Come on, Jordan!

Chris Paul can't stay healthy. Last 3 seasons, he's played 61, 58, and 58 games. Not even he could help this team make the playoffs.

If the Lin fans (that follow him in DROVES!!) fought long and hard that Lin was better than Kemba and should be starting in place of Kemba, how much would you enjoy their all out assault on Rozier?

I'd like to think at this point the Lin fans realize where he is in his career. I'm sure not all have accepted his fate, but I assume most have. At this point they probably just want a place where he's happy, I appreciated, and still can get some playing time.

Big fan of signing Lin back. He’d fit in any PG role we put him in at this stage. Plus he’s a good guy overall and I can’t imagine he’d cost much.

I'm here for it. 100%

I mean sure some of them went overboard, but overall it was fun from a non-Mod perspective. You guys did a great job in that time period. I loved the passion that the board had then though.

I don't not want Lin (he seems like a great guy), but he wouldn't move the needle for me.

I've gone from wanting Lin to just preferring we pass. Feels like that would be a cheap way to drum up fan interest, rather we just stick with the young guys.

WCS made the most sense as a young player with starter potential who fits team style.

He took a 1-year showcase deal that comes with a giant spotlight. He wasn't touching MLE money in Charlotte. It's about visibility. That's where the real money is. The rich get richer. Sucks to be Kupchak right now.

I think most fans will be surprised if the starting lineup in October turns out to be Rozier, Batum, Bridges, Williams, and Zeller. I would never want to underestimate the incompetency of most NBA coaches.

It's looking like Zeller, Bridges, Batum, Bacon and Rozier. Aside from its obvious weaknesses on the real court, that lineup on NBA 2K20, even on Rookie difficulty, will be impossible to win with unless you jack the sliders WAY up.

Rozier will start because of his contract and the simple fact that no one else on the roster can start at that spot.
Zeller will start if healthy because he's the team's best option and plays an unselfish game.
Nic & Marvin are likely to start this year mostly to be showcased for potential trades, but Miles may beat Marv out.
Bacon is likely to start by default.

Was the lineup already released? If not I disagree. I think they’ll feature Marvin for trade value.

Rozier
Bacon
Bridges
Williams
Zeller

Just move Batum to the bench. His contract sucks, but his trade value isn’t going to go up.

They've all but said Miles will start and they wanna see him featured at the 4. Seems like the plan is to roll out Rozier-Batum-Bacon-Miles-Zeller.

Personally I'd prefer Miles at the 3 for a few reasons, one of them being that we know they're gonna start at least Rozier, Miles, and Zeller; and that trio needs Marvin's spacing.

I disagree. I think Batum will start. His value can only go up. Williams contract already has value plus he is a solid locker room guy with a 3pt shot.
