This is trash.

The NBA players only playing for 2 states is trash.

We need a lockout, and we need to instal franchise tags like the NFL has.

There are endless markets that are killed because only 2 states are allowed to have teams that do 0 effort and just sit there and wait for players to refuse to play anywhere but there.

The entire system is garbage.

He just traded a ton for a rental in Irving.


Jae Crowder injured IT and a pick? Also for two years and not one.


The trace was fine.

Losing him for nothing is embarrassing. No. Way. Around. It.

Same, man. Glad it's over. Never thought for once to post on any of these.

At least now we can move on. What's the next pinned thread? Bradley Beal? Mike Conley?

The same Rozier that sabotaged this year's team. But he's Danny's boy, so he'll be back.

Griffin did the right thing. He took the best deal for his franchise. If that had come from Boston, or Denver, or wherever, Griff would have sent him there. Ainge didn't include Tatum, and without Tatum, LALs deal was better. Simple as that.

Time to move on. Don't tear down. Let Tito walk unless he signs a team friendly deal, let Mook go, extend Horford and then try to trade up and consolidate some picks. Put the onus on the young guys to grow.

I hope Rozier is gone as well.

That wasn't a "ton" in retrospect. The pick that turned into Collin Sexton was the only asset that had much value.

Look it wouldn’t have worked out. The guy doesn’t want boston period. This is the right decision.

Worked okay for the Raptors. But their GM has brass balls, unlike ours.

The go root somewhere else , or you are not a fan of a team is tired and played out. I am not going to even address that with an attack.

People do realize you don't have to watch sports, be online etc, you can stop and leave at any time. They are not a necessity. It is not the end all be all.That goes for anything.

I would love Beal, but Wizards FO situation atm makes that extremely unlikely.

It’s not the system. It’s corruption basically. A year when the whiny pos doesn’t make the playoffs and they fall into a top 4 nba draft pick. It gives them leverage for a trade. It’s utterly disgusting.

Yeah, we'd all love AD but the risk doesn't make sense.

So on we go.

Giannis will own the East for a loooong time now. Tatum's best case scenario is a Paul Pierce level star (which I doubt he gets to).

At this point, have to hope the Memphis pick hits big time as thats our only path to a super star.

Me? I’m glad it’s finally over. Hurrah! Now I can finally enjoy the draft thread and look forward to this week’s draft night with great expectation and interest.

And I’m happy for New Orleans’ exaction of those first round picks. LA did truly pay for this trade, and that’s very good news, since we alone seemed to be challenging them. Danny should receive a lots of credit for raising the bar for AD’s value.

They don't have a choice but to resign him.

Plus even if Irving did come back (he won't) they could not have kept the same team together.

It was either AD and Irving or nothing.

Irving made sure it was nothing. I hope Al opts out and goes elsewhere and this team tanks at this point.

You just said that sports and this team wasn't the end all be all in your life. That you could do without them just fine.

Yet here you are like Charlie Brown at Lucy's pyscho-therapy stand...lol

And then there's Barney Fife,I mean JR Hawks the fan cop, trying to get his bullet out of his pocket.
