I couldn’t think of a clever title.

Anyhow, when are we getting rid of Carsen? Dame >>> Beal.

Hmm Jalen Smith anyone? Phoenix could be making him avbl


I liked him in the draft and he did look promising in the summer league. My 2 questions are why would Phoenix make him available?? Are they looking for more experience? and is he strictly a shooting 5 man or can he play some 4?

But regardless, before any one answers, I have no problem trading Romeo and Grant for him

My vote for a thread title is the " DO SOMTHING! Trade thread!

or "we want more trade thread!"

I am sure someone will do better but...

Brown is better than Simmons. We don’t have anything else they would want either.

I feel bad for Simmons. He hasn't really done anything bad, he just won't shoot, that shouldn't take away all of what he is great at! If he was in the NBA during the 80s and 90s it wouldn't matter as much.

Not won't shoot, can't shoot. I haven't seen him refuse to shoot a free throw, although maybe he should have. As Bobby Knight said, "It's not the will toi win, everybody has that. It's the will to prepare to win that is important."

Might be off topic but why doesn’t Simmons play center? I don’t get why he has to be a pg

For the record. I can’t stand Ben Simmons. I was making fake trade ideas to mess around. If LBF read my posts he knows I can’t stand Simmons. LBF felt the need to bring up Covid posts because that has anything to do with Ben Simmons. Ridiculous.

Enjoy that booster buddy.

Fair enough, your post still sucked, I thought you were being serious and it was a continuation of your recent nonsense. I really respect you as a basketball poster, always will, but that **** from before just leaves a bad stain in your drawers forever on this forum.

I would trade Smart plus some other assets for Simmons but not Brown or Tatum. I would love to have a guy like simmons on the team, just not as a top 2 guy. He is fine as a third fiddle.

Hell yes. Plus, he’s an overpaid clown. No way we want a guy like that at “Kemba money.”

$$ & Power. I stand by it. And your vaccines are killing people too. Pfizer whistleblower saying close to 200k deaths within a week of taking vaccine. If people continue to comply it will only get worse the level of restrictions we will face.
And I'll leave you with this, then I don't want to talk about it again on this board. At NO time in history have the people forcing others into compliance been the good guys.
