      It doesn’t matter if he were to take a discount or not , I knew he wasn’t leaving the Warriors.

      Now there’s a real shocker. ALL superstar free agents are long shots to sign with a non-playoff team, including Paul George, unless it’s a LeBron situation when he returned to his home town with Kyrie there already and knowing Love was coming. Who is on our roster better than Westbrook? No way Klay is going to live a team with potential historical greatness.

      You’re winning titles with dudes you enjoy being around in a great city for an organization that’s built a great culture. Why da hell would you leave?

      Dubs are shooting alot less 3’s than in the past and the shooting percentage is way down. They’re forcing the action with KD at the elbow. Ariza & MaBootay have a better chance than Jrue..but not much.

      Biggest problem I see is that Dantoni only knows how to play one way and doesn’t make many adjustments…just tells the guys to play with “more energy”

      Somebody had to pay for that playoff disaster against Bron. But like MS said, it’s alot easier to just can the coach.

              Shaq was the last “max” free agent to sign here. Especially in today’s day and age, why would that suddenly change?

      No big deal if he doesn’t come.
      I want to offer Cousins $20 mil for one season to see if he still has it.

        Except that the likelihood is that he will be better in 2019-20 than next season.

      Smart move by Suns. I’ve always loved the PG and Capela combination for the Lakers. Fills their holes at the 2 and 5 without limiting their future stars at the 1, 3, and 4. PG and CC could elevate the Lakers defense into the top 5. Lakers need to keep a close eye on the Rockets situation. I’m sure Capela would prefer to come to the Lakers rather than go to Phoenix.

        …a trade like that would have to be made in “the heart of a dying star”. I’m not sold on Capella, as I wasn’t sold on Bismarck Biyambo last year. (& Tom…I’m still alive…LOL)…

      That’d be good if it would prevent the Ls front office from making the mistake of offering him a max deal. That’s IF they were even seriously considering doing so.

        Yeah, he is not worth a max deal.

          Nope, he sure isn’t. He’s a good role player on THAT particular team ,.. not sure he’d be as effective on a different team.

    2. KD punishing these dudes for trying to guard him with Jrue.. AND KD can stick with Jrue on the other end

      The numbers r impressive, but I can’t help but wonder if it may be more that the Raps r just alot weaker than many thought they were. Guess we’ll have to wait til the next round b4 we can make a determination.

      2 East games is all I can figure; they’re probably not losing many PDT viewers anyway.

      • GDUBinDC

        GDUBinDC 4:54 PM on May 7, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        Here’s what I was able to find:

        Several factors go into producing the conference semifinals schedule. The NBA’s television contract with ABC mandates the second round of the playoffs must conclude by Sunday, May 13. Since Cavaliers-Pacers went seven games, it shortened the league’s window to get everything in. That means both Eastern Conference semifinals must be in action on the same day, creating the need for the late-afternoon tips. The alternative would be to start the early Eastern Conference game at 7:00 p.m. and the late one at 9:30 p.m., but the league determined that’s too late, according to the Boston Globe. Plus, that arrangement would probably cause Gerry Callahan to combust.

        So on Saturday, the Celtics and Sixers will get underway at 5:00, leading into Cleveland-Toronto. On Monday, the Celtics will begin at 6:00. The start times for Games 5, 6 and 7, if necessary, are not yet determined.

        The NBA could stagger the start times, but the league has decided to let one game conclude before another begins. MLB and NHL put games against each other in the early rounds of the playoffs, but both leagues play to more parochial audiences.

        LeBron James is the biggest sports star in the country, so it only makes sense for the NBA to put his games in primetime. The Celtics and Sixers may have the history, but James has the star power.

        As a result, the C’s are banished to the twilight hours. At least the kids will be able to watch Monday, even if those with jobs will struggle to see the first half.

      Lakers won’t have to worry about Celtics trading Tatum for Kawhi. No way they trade Tatum. He’s too good already. Could be better thsnKuz considering age and upside

          not already better than Kuzma, but might be in the long run. he has a lot going for him, chief of which is his aggression, but he still relies on athleticism over skill, something that rarely lasts in the league. we’ll have to wait to see what they become.
