thunder wise to turn that one down

not sure it would help boston that much anyway. weird proposal.

moonbop, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 05:15 (ten years ago) link

well westbrook > rondo and perkins and green are pretty much a wash i'd say

k3vin k., Wednesday, 30 November 2011 05:24 (ten years ago) link

lot of talk today about cp3 dealings - clippers, celtics are supposedly the most likely destinations - otoh another writer just got a scoop saying NOLA won't trade him so long as the NBA owns the team

k3vin k., Wednesday, 30 November 2011 05:25 (ten years ago) link

chris paul + blake would be pretty insane

moonbop, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 05:32 (ten years ago) link

his "heart is new orleans" but we all now how that goes

this is like if you had a lamborghini and someone was like "i'm going to make you a big offer for this lamborghini" and it was a BMW and two oranges

I guess taking back turkoglu becomes "we'll also spend a Saturday afternoon helping you clean your garage."

is CP3 an upgrade over rondo? both are great.

CP3 to clippers is lol, (a) because lol clippers; (b) haha to NYK; and (c) the possibility of clippers > LAL is the lol-est of lol's.

Kyle Singler will stay in Spain rather than join the Detroit Pistons. He was taken by the Pistons with the 33rd pick in the #NBA draft (AP)

I too would take a guaranteed contract over the crapshoot of being a 2nd rounder, especially on a crap team.

EZ Snappin, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 16:29 (ten years ago) link

I too would spend my early 20s traveling Spain as a professional athlete over living in Detroit.

clay, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 19:44 (ten years ago) link

yes, singler SO OTM

v-shasty, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 19:46 (ten years ago) link

also i think he's secretely trying to goad detroit into just outright not signing him

v-shasty, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 19:46 (ten years ago) link

seems like that'd make sense for a lot of this year's 2nd round picks. why wait to sign in a foreign league if you don't have a guaranteed contract waiting for you at the end of the lockout?

OOOO, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 19:53 (ten years ago) link

have we not signed nene yet WTF, pat riley?

Daniel, Esq., Wednesday, 30 November 2011 20:52 (ten years ago) link

is CP3 an upgrade over rondo? both are great.

cp3 is a pretty significant upgrade over rondo, as much as i love rondo - he's probably the second-best defensive 1 in the game (to rondo) and on offense can do anything rondo can do but better

k3vin k., Wednesday, 30 November 2011 23:44 (ten years ago) link

wow so many rondos in that post

word is cp3 would not sign an extension with the Cs anyway, so that deal is probably done

k3vin k., Wednesday, 30 November 2011 23:45 (ten years ago) link

i think everyone is speculating sign + trade so he can get more cash

i have no idea why he wouldn't want to go there -- i guess they're old but they're one of the best run orgs in the business. unless he really wants to play for the clippers.

v-shasty, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 23:50 (ten years ago) link

hi, i made a meme

v-shasty, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 23:56 (ten years ago) link

idk i don't really blame him, their future doesn't look great beyond the next couple years and who knows how long doc'll want to coach

he'd make more sense in the celtics current system than westbrook, mostly due to his defense - although they do need another player who can create (and make) his own shot

k3vin k., Wednesday, 30 November 2011 23:57 (ten years ago) link

paul would assassinate people on this year's celtics -- they already get such an insane amount of open shots. if they got him i think they'd be the favorites in the east.

v-shasty, Wednesday, 30 November 2011 23:58 (ten years ago) link

yeah i probably agree

k3vin k., Thursday, 1 December 2011 00:00 (ten years ago) link

but i'm not sure if they'll get him this season

if i'm the hornets/the nba idk if i'd want rondo back -- you have to have a very specific team around him (i.e. one that can convert all is passes into assists, bcuz he's not really scoring)

v-shasty, Thursday, 1 December 2011 00:01 (ten years ago) link

btw did you guys hear the turkish team d-will played for RETIRED HIS JERSEY last night?

xp right

k3vin k., Thursday, 1 December 2011 00:02 (ten years ago) link

thought that was so dope

clay, Thursday, 1 December 2011 00:06 (ten years ago) link

touched by the hand of god

dayo, Thursday, 1 December 2011 00:07 (ten years ago) link

is there a definitive list of all the players who can't come back this season. I mean the entirety of the denver nuggets, but who else?

dayo, Thursday, 1 December 2011 00:08 (ten years ago) link

The Nugs, and Aaron Brooks

That's about it.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 1 December 2011 00:23 (ten years ago) link

doc signed a 5-year extension so there should be no reason he wouldn't be there as long as paul.

cad, Thursday, 1 December 2011 01:16 (ten years ago) link

oh ok i forgot he signed an extension, i thought this was his last year on contract for some reason

k3vin k., Thursday, 1 December 2011 03:50 (ten years ago) link

still celtics will be a middling team in 3-4 years probs

k3vin k., Thursday, 1 December 2011 03:51 (ten years ago) link

WTF we haven't signed nene yet?

biggest news basically

v-shasty, Thursday, 1 December 2011 06:08 (ten years ago) link

so, there's news.

  • mike miller had hernia surgery. so it's basically certain he'll be amnestied by the heat. it also means he isn't going to be useful in a trade package (which is what's been suggested (him and haslem for nene).
  • nene apparently is going to get a max-contract from someone? if that's so, and if he wants that over championships, he'll be playing for a mid-level team (despite the fact that he's said he wants to play for either miami or dallas, and win titles).

Daniel, Esq., Thursday, 1 December 2011 18:54 (ten years ago) link

More than a year and a half after his last surgery and the latest estimate is that Greg Oden will be ready to play (maybe) in January. Can't wait to see how his free-agency goes.

Aimless, Thursday, 1 December 2011 19:06 (ten years ago) link

at this point he's a near minimum-contract guy, i think.

Daniel, Esq., Thursday, 1 December 2011 19:29 (ten years ago) link

and here it is: CP3 determined to play for NYK

Daniel, Esq., Thursday, 1 December 2011 19:32 (ten years ago) link

gahhh

moullet, Thursday, 1 December 2011 19:34 (ten years ago) link

nooo cp3 don't make me hate u

cad, Thursday, 1 December 2011 19:34 (ten years ago) link

wowwwwwwwwwww

v-shasty, Thursday, 1 December 2011 19:34 (ten years ago) link

honestly i'm not sure i can hate a knicks team with cp3, melo & amare -- amare is prob my favorite athlete right now behind THE REAL BLACK MAMBA (de'anthony thomas)

v-shasty, Thursday, 1 December 2011 19:35 (ten years ago) link

i'm going to have to summon up all of my intense hatred of new york sports fans to pull that one off

v-shasty, Thursday, 1 December 2011 19:35 (ten years ago) link

now if nene could just similarly force his way to the heat . . .

Daniel, Esq., Thursday, 1 December 2011 19:36 (ten years ago) link

oh i'll be able to hate them just fine ('cept for a'mare, obv.).

interesting eastern-conference. NYK -- Heat rivalry is back.

Daniel, Esq., Thursday, 1 December 2011 19:36 (ten years ago) link

is it even possible for the knicks to pull this off?

v-shasty, Thursday, 1 December 2011 19:39 (ten years ago) link

i liked the heat-knicks rivalry renewal a lot more when it was amare + homegrown knicks vs the monolothic heat transformer -- there's no narrative to a knicks-heat superstar rivalry

v-shasty, Thursday, 1 December 2011 19:42 (ten years ago) link

SMH

DeMarcus Cousins has demanded to be traded. In the best interest of our team as we go forward, he has been directed by me, with the support of management, to stay home from the New Orleans game tonight.”

wow

really starting to wonder if Odom has some personal/substance abuse problems going on

Matt Armstrong, Monday, 2 January 2012 00:29 (ten years ago) link

@sam_amick
Cousins' agent, John Greig, tells SI.com: "DeMarcus never demanded a trade. I'm surprised the Kings, if they believe the player wanted..."

@sam_amick
Greig: "...a trade, wouldn't have made a phone call to his representative. Maybe Westphal is just feeling the heat early this season."

Matt Armstrong, Monday, 2 January 2012 00:31 (ten years ago) link

sacto fans regret lobbying to keep team around

cad, Monday, 2 January 2012 00:56 (ten years ago) link

Woj: In loud exchange with Paul Westphal on Saturday after NY loss, some Kings heard DeMarcus Cousins yelling, "Trade me now," sources tell Y!

clay, Monday, 2 January 2012 01:07 (ten years ago) link

i don't think he gets that you're supposed to be a good player to be able to demand a trade

k3vin k., Monday, 2 January 2012 01:13 (ten years ago) link

Hurting, Monday, 2 January 2012 03:19 (ten years ago) link
