Nobody in their right mind wants to play with a max'd Gordon Heyward and Al Horford. Sorry, your boy Ainge dropped the ball.


Sorry but you really have NO idea what you're talking about.


It's all good, I feel your pain. My baseball team has handed out tons of bad contracts the last 3-4 years and it cost us a serious run at Harper last off season. No need to be in denial that the Heyward and Horford deals were buns. That is peak homerism right there.

The Horford contract isn’t that bad, he’s a grossly underrated player and a winner. They Celtics would have absolutely no problem trading him. Hayward would be very difficult to move however.

So paying somebody the max when he isn't even top 10 at his position (and his position is de valued to begin with) is fine because he's a "winner"? If they could move him the only reason is because he is expiring.

He wasn't worth it when he signed the deal.

Horford doesn’t make the max.

Horford is definitely a top 10 Center and probably top 5-6. Like I said, a lot of people underrate him just like you’re doing right now. His ability to shoot, pass, guard all over the floor and make winning plays make him invaluable in today’s league.

Among centers he is 18th in PER and 14th in WS/48. His position is de valued to begin with. You don't pay that guy 30 mil. He's a good player who I respect don't get me wrong, but highly overpaid.

Never ever should Horford be using up 30% of your cap. He can be underrated among fans but still overpaid.

I wish the bulls would and also that AD would re-sign.

1. The Pelicans would laugh and hang up

2. The salaries are at least 20 million off from matching such a trade


Fine...... I will add Felicio then :(

The first stat you pulled out was PER?

Anyways no point in arguing this further but I’m very certain that the GM’s around the league understand his true value beyond PER. (And don’t think I didn’t notice that you ignored every other advanced stat other than the 2 where he ranked outside the top 10).

The Celtics would have zero problems trading him and getting value back, you obviously think otherwise.

What the hell AD wants?

I mean, i love Lebron, hes still the best (or second) player in the world, but got dammit, what the hell the Lakers have more than the Celtics for AD saying that hes only staying one year there?

I dont even like the Celtics that much, but this looks like an arrogant move. LA Shinning, nothing more.

You're still not close to matching salaries and just made the trade worse for Pelicans

How many advanced stats would you like me to list? Only the ones that favor him? Tell me what else you want me to take into account, because every time I post huge amounts of numbers people usually ignore the post so I didn't want to do analysis paralysis.

My bad, keep getting the spellings confused because of the baseball player Jason Heyward who spells it with an e.

You answered your own question the Lakers have Lebron, and Klutch, in ADs ear. He's had them in his ear for at least a couple of seasons now. This really isn't as much about AD wanting to sign with the Lakers as it is AD wanting to be with LBJ. AD has allowed him to be a bit of a pawn, willingly, in all of this but that's his personality.

How about we start by not acting like it’s 2005 and treating PER like its an important number.

the kick in the nuts is he’s (seemingly) going to Brooklyn, the franchise who’s linked with Boston.

sooo ironic that despite taking all brooklyn’s draft picks, it’s the Nets who could be in a better spot the year after the picks are done
