  1. That's dumb. A bench player and the 29th PG pick who's 29 yrs old and then you give up the 6th pick? Any GM that does even HALF that deal if not long for his job.
  2. Yes to Millsap, he will teach the locker room how to be professional but We should pick up a young backup PG. We need another playmaker like Deni.
  3. I'd rather have Joe Harris or Bogdanavic if its anything close to 15+ mil a yr. or give Bertran a one yr deal. Harris can play multiple positions.
  4. Advija or Wiseman, no way we are getting Edwards and between the two, Advija no doubt. Bleacher has him going 2 overall. I'm the FIRST here who called it. Lamelo, just no. Another point guard? no. Its better to get a vet PG like CP3 who can make Trey better (obviously not CP3). No to Toppin, he's 22 yrs old playing against 18-19 yr olds. Hayes is a PG AND his 3 pt shot looks alot like Lonzo Ball's 3 pt'er.
  5. Both Klay and Draymond are coming off of really bad injuries. Even at the start of the season, Draymond looked cooked. I don't think they have any more championships in their future. I'm hoping we either trade down or trade the pick entirely. I'm not saying that there won't be anyone who will do well but there are no standout prospects. If you do take a chance, it would be better to get picks for next yr and get some vets in here. I'm a fan of Joe Harris, if we can get him at a decent price.
  6. With the team so young and unbalanced, this SHOULD happen. In this yrs draft, we need to get someone solid, the rebuilding phase needs to be done after this yr!! Even the games that we win are suspect. We have to outscore everyone because of the lack of defense. One more good pick and one more from FA and we should be set. I believe in the Centers we have now, Bruno, Capela and Dedmon, our PG's are set Teague and Young, the wings at the 2 and 3 are good with Cam, Deandre, Huerter and Brembry. We have Collins but we still need a hybrid PF and another playmaker.
  7. I'm for him if Huerter is a starter next yr over Reddish. Can't have Trae and Huerter playing next to each other. Collins has been looking better, for now. I like holding everyone accountable, including the coaches.
  8. There's a lot of players injured too. I feel that Vince Carter should have been put in earlier to provide a spark but its hard to judge because we always fall behind and then catch up. Because we are streaky and frequently fall behind, its hard to determine when to make that critical wholesale change. Its a young team and hopefully the team will mature next yr.
  9. I just learned that I can move up to row A from row C for next yr, so I'm in a REALLY good mood(will stay positive)! I'm not against Collins, despite how some feel. I hope he can become a top 3 PF. I'll GLADLY eat my words if he does so. Jeff Teague is a good PG but he depends on having teammates who know's what to do. He's not an aggressive playmaker like Trae. He's ALOT more of a passive-agressive playmaker that when he makes a pass and a player is open, they either make a play or make a 2nd pass for a better shot. However, with so many rooks on the team, they are often in the wrong alignment and he's not effective with rookies. I've been vocal about it, in this draft, there's a player who's an aggressive playmaker that I would love to have. Especially since its not a given that Teague will stay.
  10. I read it. He's not even in the top 10 and nowhere near the top 5. Anthony Davis, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Pascal Siakim, Draymond Green, Kristaps Porzingis, Montrezl Harrell, Tobias Harris, Aaron Gordon, Blake Griffin etc. I'm not even including others that I think are better but too new like Jaren Jackson Jr, Zion Williamson and others who STILL arguably better like Sabonis, Julius Randle, Bertans, etc. I DO think he's got upswing and he's in the top half of the league. The MAX contract stuff, lack of defense and PED's kinda pushes back how high he really is. I could be wrong but I doubt it. Right now, this team isn't even in the middle of the pack in the league but next year we will find out with Capella, Hunter, Reddish all being in the regular rotation.
  11. Nothing, its nothing personal but people saying he's the 4th best PF is the league, at this point, is crazy. Look below Top 5 as of today IMHO 1. Jason Tatum (Made Kwahi look old and SLOW) 2. Trae Young (Hopefully will take the top spot if his defense improves) 3. Ja Morant, he put the team on his shoulders and to this point, they are in the playoffs IN THE WEST! 4. Luka Doncic, Pretty good but he hasn't proven anything to me. I'll still take Trae and Reddish for that trade. 5. OPEN, Heck no to Zion, he's ONLY played 12 games, so heck no. Just NO!
  12. Tomorrow he plays against Aaron Gordon. The last time Gordon BULLIED him. Let's see if another PF has a career night against Collins.
  13. He had a good game last night. Huerter was terrible.
  14. I hope we thrash them next yr .. and tonight! 100% agree. Thank you TS!! I'm not harping on him. Its just that TRAE is sooo bad on defense, you can't have so many liabilities on defense. Collins is GREAT on offense. He knows what to do, especially on Pick and Rolls. His 3 pt percentages are great and I've seen him make tough shot after shot. The problem is that I think that Cam Reddish will be the 2nd best player on the team. I think that Hunter will be our 3 and D guy. I think that Capella will shore up our rebounds and a slight low post threat. That leaves the PF position. If Trae has a PF who has defense, that would be more important than a offensive PF. When you have Lebron, you can have a Kuzma, when you have Trae, you need more of a Draymond Green. Lastly, I don't think people are dumping on Collins (and not me either) but you can't just watch and see that much potential wasted because of a lack of defense and PED's. Just saying... I used to get this mad about Josh Smith too, its not like I didn't like him but even the FANs started booing when he kept shooting threes. HE had ALL-STAR potential but he never got aggressive driving the ball to the basket (even Horford said so). So yea, after yrs of disappointment, I'm a "show me the money" FAN. Ben Simmons and many others can't shore up their shortcomings but again, on a team when you have Trae at the point, you have to adapt. I don't have a personal grudge against Collins.
