They don't do a lot of the same things....we'll see.

He's not going to start

But he's going to, looking at our roster. If we were a playoff team, I'd be fine with that, but we're not. He doesn't provide us with anything valuable for a rebuild. He's a role player on a team like the Spurs or the Celtics, where his shooting will be valuable. For us, we need players that can start and help with our rebuild.

He wouldnt start on a playoff team right now..Indy-man..I agree

But he shoots 45% from 3-point range.....that's really valuable

.....He' s 19.....healthy.......lets wait and see

Leaf isnt a center at all

He's a small power forward..He's almost a '3'

both seem like stretch 4s to me

 

i guess turner is 4/5 and leaf is 3/4. doesnt seem like a good fit, both are under sized if turner is a 5 and leaf is 4

I think Harden has a case of deserving it. Played out of position all year and led his team to 3rd in the potent Western Conference

Westbrook is the first player since Oscar Robertson to average a TDB which was like 100 years ago LOL, Westbrook is the MVP, for a ball hog he still averaged 10 Assists and when was the last time a PointG averaged 10 Rebounds? No way should Westbrook not get that award. His team also won 47 games. The Playoffs have nothing to do with that award, Harden also led the league in Turnovers. Nobody should win MVP if they lead the league in Turnovers.

He is not a C like Turner

What he means is he plays the same role on the floor. So when Turner sits he would play that role...but he is too little to guard the 4 and too slow to guard the 3. Think George Niang slight slight upgrade.

Leaf is 6-foot-9, 222....that's one of Shaq's legs...this boy has never been a '5'

He'll play some small forward,. too. I'm sure

That just regular season award is crap. There's no way that voters weren't looking at that first round series between the two players

He cant get off his shot??  TJ Leaf?

WE are talking about 2 different players, dg

Against a 3.....he will get ate up defensively. He will stand in the corner and do jack crap you watch. He can't create offense is what I'm saying....at all. He relied on Ball all year to feed him.

We have Jeff Teague dg....

But If he stands in the corner and jack up 12 crappy points a game, you're okay with it.

 

WE need shooters

He didn't show up for an exit interview and his people were upset how they were handling the Carmelo thing. Reports Boston offered #3 plus 1 from next year and they balked so clearly knicks didn't want to move him because that's crazy value.

 

Wow. I had not heard about that. Thanks. Yeah, that shows that Phil was not serious about moving Porzingis.

I doubt it, but this is really inexplicable. PG still being here is just a bizarre breakdown on Kevin Grigson's part

If the offers weren't good enough, I see no reason as to why we should move him. Lakers offer is crap, but we should probably take it now that our options seem to be dwindling.

It's pretty much PG's fault but the Pacers should've traded his * at the deadline. It's ridiculous that he wasn't

Nobody was going to trade their best player at midseason when they were in the playoffs

...Once he said he;s going...we look to move him

 

I'm still looking at San Antonio

Kevin Love was good enough. Trade him at the deadline if need be, it's a quality guy with one more year on his deal.

The Boston deal was good enough.

The 6ers deal was way too good.. If that's true.. whew.. A four game sweep wasn't worth it (keeping PG for this last run).

The TWolves deal was okayish. Levine is a more unique potential than draft prospects. We've seen him work.

 

I'm guessing other deals are probably okay-ish too. I could be wrong, as I have no details, but if these are true, I'm baffled.

What do they have to give? I don't really want Aldridge, and it's not like they're trying to tank. I suppose a three team trade could work out, but the draft is already over, so draft picks are pointless.

    • Yah its been pretty grim. Honestly the golden era ended when Manning was cut. Luck was really great but the GM, HC and team put around him was nowhere near SB contention.   If he had stayed on and we started scratch and built around Luck we could have started a new golden era, but obviously he was sick of getting blasted every play.    How much must Irsay hate the decision to cut Manning. Goes on to have all those insane seasons with the Broncos and win another. Who knows how many more we could have won if Irsay didn't drop him for Luck. Then a short while later Luck dropped us the same way.    Oh well, heres to hopefully a new GM, rebuild and a fresh start. We get the right GM to come in and draft a QB maybe we get lucky. 
    • We will probably lose out or only win 1 or 2 games. So we should get a high draft pick. Question is, will Ballard get the right QB? Matt Ryan could have been good but our line has played like garbage and I am very disappointed in Taylor's play. I thought he would be similar to last year, not even close. Leonard is injured but still, he has been disappointing as well. Rivers and Wentz both played with solid rosters and healthy players. At this point I would roll with Sam again and hope we got a top 5 pick. I hate tanking, rarely give up, but as a fan I know the season is over now. Dallas will probably smoke us.
    • The golden era of colts football is long gone. We were blessed to have back to back generational QBs, countless wins and records. HOF caliber and pro bowl talent, and long playoff runs. It was fun, exciting, and made you proud that you made it through some dark seasons and finally the football gods said it's your turn. Unfortunately, our time is over and honestly it's been over since that unfaithful moment Luck got hurt. The colts need to face the fact this isn't the same team they once were and embrace that they need to rebuild. What a run it's been though.  
    • It was Taylor's fault but as usual some post without facts. Matt Ryan did nothing wrong on that hand off. Buck and Aikman both said it was Taylor's fault. If we score there, there was around an 80% chance we win. Matt Ryan gets blamed for everything by fans so par for the course. I read your other posts too. Of course we didn't play well last night but Dakich criticizing the timeout situation and bashing Jeff was way off base. That is not why we lost. 
    • Good thing is you don't need to make any efforts and stress for that which will eventually happen.    Still Dallas seems to play down to the opponents this year, and the game could be equal more or less before they get to break away.
