Jazz second round pick Miye Oni has already shown me more than Grayson Allen ever did.
Curry and DLo? Dame and CJ? Westbrook and Harden are better than their reputations. Harden is pretty good defending the post and Westbrook at least tries (though he gambles too much).
Feels like the Dubs are in a gap year, and the Blazers aren't title contenders in this universe. Going from Chris Paul to Russell Westbrook is a meaningful defensive downgrade.
I don’t think he cares. They let go of all his assistants and lowballed him when they tried to negotiate a contract extension.
Morey is safe. They will never be able to find anyone better than him.
I can't quite understand if the Knicks are either:
C) Hoping that one of these players go superstar status this season lol.I can't quite understand if the Knicks are either:
A) overpaying a ton of middling free agents so they have a lot of salary filler to trade in case a superstar requests a trade within the next 2 seasons or...
B) desperately trying to put together a .500 team in time for the 2021 free agency so they can poach one of the superstars.
That player super power..Re: why did the Rockets do this? The same reason the Clippers traded the farm for Paul George and the Lakers traded the farm for Anthony Davis. Their superstar wanted it and it might have been an untenable situation going forward if they didn't. This is a player's league.
Are those 1-4 protected picks unprotected the next year, or do they become second rounders? Because I can't see the Rockets being all that good in 2024 and 2026, though I guess we haven't really seen what the value of an expiring supermax contract is on the trade block.
