Minnesota isnt trading KAT. People really need to move on from this pipe dream.


May I ask why some one would dream of pipes? Are they straight or bent pipes? Do they deliver water? Not trying to be funny, just curious where this phrase originated.

Think it means pipe-induced dream. In other words, you were smoking some funny stuff and ended up having some odd dreams.

Boston?


No, we don't have any cash at all to sign both of em, unless they both agree to the vet min. I think we renounced his rights, if I'm not mistaking(Marcus')?


The twins are in LA right now.


Possibly waiting to either sign with Kawhi, or take the leftover money of the team that doesn't sign Kawhi.

Thanks appreciate the explanation. Perhaps the phrase should then be pipe induced dream.

Correct.
pipe dream
Origin
late 19th century: referring to a dream experienced when smoking an opium pipe.

Following a paper trail of money involving millions of dollars is easy, IMO. If the NBA can't track millions of dollars, then they are a trash organization.


That was a weird situation in that he was trying to force his way out and pick a destination to land. That's actually another example of a player using the system to help push him where he wants to go.

As for tracking the money, that's not the hard part. It's proving that it was unfairly gifted.


I think it's fairly easy to prove, IMO. Let's say that Lebron did, in fact, get Warner Bros to give AD a role in Space Jam 2. Well, all the NBA really needs to do is look at AD's movie contract. Is he getting paid $4 million for 3-4 days work? Is that money he's getting for his role commensurate with what other actors are getting for similar gigs? What are the other NBA players in Space Jam 2 getting paid? Is Dame Lillard getting $4 million for the same amount of work? If not, then the NBA has something to work with in building a case that the Lakers are circumventing the salary cap

Man, I'm all nerves thinking about the Kawhi signing. If he goes to the Lakers, the league is screwed; and I truly mean that. That team can sustain high-profile injuries, lack depth and still be dominant. A move to the Clippers would be an incredible mediator and the Raptors would be fine as well.

There is like no actual way unless you trade Hayward for him, and why in the world would OKC do that?

It was on reddit. All of the threads are a barren wasteland now, but a bunch of users (presumably angry Raptors fans) decided to doxx that RDAmbition account. Started off with the discovery that he was a Trump supporter. Ended off with them putting 2 and 2 together - RDAmbition stands for Riley Drexel.

The lesson to be learned here - if you ever start up a burner account, don't include your real initials in the screen name.



If that’s the case then it’s over. He’s going to go ride lebroni’s cocktails.

No lie I did it with Kemba. I also did it with Kanter but I didn’t really want Kanter. But nevertheless I did it.

So Towns is coming to us, I feel it. Ainge about to make another big deal with Minny.



I don’t think the celtics have enough for KAT. Rosas isn’t about to do Ainge any favors.

LOL! This is legitimately the type of thing that could make Kawhi realize the BS theyve been spinning about their FA is a complete lie.

I think we aren't using your superpowers to their full potential. Why stop at KAT? Let's go for Giannis instead.
