The Heat are interested in Bradley Beal. I love how they mortgaged 2 of their picks and capped out yet media advertises their interest in prizes they have no chance of acquiring.

Beal. Lol.

What about Boston and their Memphis pick? Miami Heat spam is so annoying.

Like I could just flood the airwaves with Hornets interested in Damian Lillard + CJ McCollum package, so far unwilling to part with PJ Washington. Cody Zeller would make sense in this deal for the Blazers. He's young and has a low salary. Boner time.

Thunder can't move Chris Paul. No crap. Rockets tried every team before the Westbrook deal surfaced. That contract has negative value and people wanted to give up assets for it.

The Celtics are all pissy pants about “tampering” associated to Philly and Horford?

Are you **** kidding me?

Hey pot, this is kettle. Kettle, I’d like you to meet pot.

The NBA is product is getting pretty bad. If the big market teams are complaining, how do they think small market teams feel?

Boston is upset over tampering with Hortford
Lakers feel like they got played in the Kawhi sweepstakes.

You both just took 3 of the top 20 players in the league from small market teams, cry me a river.

MY SOLUTION:
Contract the league to about 8 teams in major markets, assign 8 players and allow them to draft their team.

Then the small markets get the remaining 22 teams and players, then play a 55 game schedule with some type of tournament.

Interesting
Since the summer after his freshman year at the University of Tennessee, Schofield had been using Noah’s shot-tracking technology, which attached cameras to the baskets to calculate the angle and the ball’s position in the hoop. It would have been easy for Schofield to ignore this kind of information. He’d already made it to the highest level of college basketball without listening to a piece of technology named after a biblical character.

But it turned out that Noah had something compelling to say: It told Schofield that his shooting trajectory was too high. His shot’s entry angle was 55 degrees when it should have been closer to 45 degrees. And he trusted the data more than he trusted his own intuition.

What happened next would change Admiral Schofield’s life. He spent months tinkering with his mechanics until he was no longer shooting moonballs. As his shooting angle came down, his shooting percentage went up. Schofield made 30% of his 3-pointers as a freshman and 41% over the next three years.

That improvement would be worth millions of dollars when he signed with the Washington Wizards last week and became one of the first players to follow the advice of technology all the way to the NBA.

This is a profound shift in the making of the American professional athlete. It used to be the great paradox of sports that employees in one of the world’s most carefully quantified lines of work chose to reject the numbers that governed their profession. But not anymore. Schofield belongs to a generation of athletes that guzzles data.

“The most common quote I hear, whether it’s a middle-school coach, high-school coach, college or NBA, is that today’s players will not argue with a computer,” Carter said.

Carter says these athletes won’t respond to subjective coaching now that more objective information is available to them. They prefer exact numbers to estimates.

“That type of feedback is not accurate enough,” he said, “and honestly players don’t trust it.”

The fantastic amount of granular information created about every shot is not simply changing the way that players like Admiral Schofield develop. It’s fundamentally changing the game.

They have a really nice squad with Bazemore, Simons, Nassir Little, and Rodney Hood. The West is gonna be fascinating.

I don't think many people have seen the real Michael Jordan. What we see is often the Nike marketing from him. If the Hornets were doing well, then Jordan would be more featured. He is one of the greatest brands in the world and there are lot of people ensuring that brand fits the ideal profits imagined. So, could Jordan walk away from being a walking billboard and be more of a hardcore fan? It would be very difficult. And, that's why I don't necessarily agree he doesn't care about the Hornets. It's just a loss for him to show it when the team is being labeled one of the worst ever.

Hornets would’ve been better off signing Trey Burke for the minimum than overpaying for Rozier.
