Revisiting: The Decision vs. My Next Chapter...

It's all allegedly swept under the rug now. LeBron came home and brought the title-starved city of Cleveland a championship against the winningest regular-season team of all-time, the Warriors.

Later, we all heard the "blew a 3-1 lead" narrative repeatedly, at the Warriors fans expense, ad nauseam. But, without a doubt, LeBron had redeemed himself from the "The Decision" departure to the Heat in the eyes of many. The Chosen One from Akron, had secured an ailing legacy.

Now, it's KD who is the one who gets called a snake, even though essentially, both LeBron and KD turned their back on their home-team, to pursue winning titles via free agency. Both were successful in their goals. Of course, KD remains with the Warriors, and got his title against LeBron's Cavs. The Warriors remain the team to beat heading into this new season. LeBron now has D-Wade, D-Rose, and IT, as the Cavs will be the favorites in the East.

They both made wise decisions in retrospect. At least, you can't argue with the results; the methods of course are despised by many. The main point of contention is that KD joined an established winning team, a history making team, a team that beat his Thunder, essentially joining the enemy.

Is the only way for KD to redeem himself to help OKC win a title later in his career? It seems unlikely that he would ever go back, or be wanted back. Besides, KD isn't young by NBA standards any longer. I honestly believe both should have stayed to build a legacy in one place, yet I can't fault them.

Bottom line; they both left their team's high and dry, and they both were as wise as serpents as it turns out. And yes...LeBron came back home and won, KD is still the unrepentant prodigal son.

"I'm a clown. Have only ever proven Kevin McHale right my entire time as a Rocket, now watch some of my Shaqtin a fool highlights and Game 6 with me as I eat a breakfast crunchwrap."

CP3 leads on both ends, is vocal, actually does the shit he preaches, and doesn't give up on his team.

You can't say someone is a bad leader because their team is worse than the other teams they're playing against, and they've failed trying to play outside themselves and carry a team on their back. CP3 is a true PG, he's not a scoring PG. He can't just go off and save his team from choking in the 4th quarter, and he tries to do that sometimes, like against OKC in the semis in 2014.

McHale is indeed a clown. A supposedly old school guy who throws former players under the bus, especially after being stupidly wrong about his skill set, is still collecting checks from the rockets. Mainly due to Harden.

>>78776234
Fultz looks legit spooked on the court, kinda like how Ingram looked his first year

I'd say out of all the prospects, Kuzma and Tatum look the most ready to me to help offensively. Tatum won't get the minutes he deserves, Kuzma is stuck behind Nance and Randle on the depth chart right now but I expect one of those to be moved by Feburary

Considering Lonzo/Ingram/Simmons, I think they'll all struggle but has very strong highs this season.

Lonzo is interesting because he has no interest in changing his form but like you said, he doesn't hesitate to shoot from deep. Simmons looks very raw shooting the ball, but his speed has surprised me.

Ingram might be the most interesting one. From everything I've seen, he's a hard worker and is still constantly tinkering with his form. Unlike with Fultz, where it's different every shot, I've seen Ingram's shot develop from kind of a catapult in the beginning with no arc or backspin, to where it is now which is a little more smoother with good arc but the backspin is still not there.

I think for Ingram, we're not going to know what kind of player he's in the last year of his rookie deal, usually by then, a player either breaks out or shows some improvement. I can't see him averaging less than 14 points a game this season (BBR projects around 12 points), which is where I expected him to be last season. But he was way more raw than anyone thought. I think in particular, he was a gym rat who shot the wrong way so much that he got good at it. But with quicker closeouts and the faster speed of the NBA game, his shot got exposed.

>>78776508
People were comparing him to Kidd but he's more athletic imo, I think he'll be fine.

>Roberson is a much more valuable player than Danny Green.

I'd always been a fan of the idea to allow kids from high school to enter the draft, get drafted but they can't play in the regular season or playoffs. They can do summer league, pre-season and all the training, practice, etc that comes with being on a NBA and of course the salary, but it would allow this kids to mature for one year better than the NCAA one and done system. Once you serve a burner year, you can start playing.

Is he the next Dallas/Atlanta reclamation project?
>>
>>78780661
I like him in Atlanta or Memphis but the hometown connection in Dallas makes a lot of sense. It's not that Julius is a bad player, he's not, it's just that in order to maximize Lonzo's skill the ball has to be in his hands and not Julius's. And that in return, ruins what makes Randle so special in the open court.

Tatum is not ready until he develops a reliable 3 point shot. He's not going to be an all-star with his old school game.

Kuzma is the most ready because he has good post moves, can reliably hit 3s which helps a lot as a rookie, and he is athletic for his size. He's more athletic than Tatum.

If Kuzma gets 26-28 minutes again, he'll get rookie of the year. He'll definitely get rookie of the year if the Lakers trade for Randle right now which they might.

I never noted the rotation on Ingram's shot. I'll look more into that.

>>78781788
Neither are top 5 yet so hard to tell. Kristaps may never get there.

But the best under 25 duo is obviously Davis and Giannis. They would win rings together. It would be like Duncan and LeBron joining up just before their primes.

Roberson is a much better defender. Can you imagine Roberson, with his athleticism and frame if he was developed by the Spurs? He had a lot of potential
>>
If everything went perfectly for the Lakers, they would have KAT, Booker, Kuzma, and Josh Jackson with the defense at #3 pick. They would have still gotten high draft picks because they would have struck out in free agency and would have missed Simmons for the year.

C: KAT
PF: Jackson
SF: Kuzma
SG: PG13
PG: Simmons

>all dat height and length
>perfect mix of scoring and defense

They would have raped the league for a decade ;__;
>>
>>78782088
Lakers: Magic
Knicks: Frazier
Grizzlies: Pau Gasol

The rest is correct.
>>
>>78782302
Jim Buss had his hands in all that. Worse, he let Mitch be the fall guy, telling him to get whoever he could in free agency to save their jobs. So Mitch goes at 12:00am and signs Mozgov and Deng, ultimately costing us Dlo and potentially Randle/Clarkson in order to get rid of Deng.

Rob Hennigan is one of the worst GMs to grace the sport. And that's saying something. Nigga spent years in both Spurs and Thunder in the front office and was hired at age 30. His stupid fucking plan was to, instead of providing complimentary vets, was to also sign mediocre players to the exact same position as the youngsters he drafted.

I keep repeating this over and over because it's just so dumb. He learned literally nothing from those organizations he worked at and was surprised his team was stuck deep in the shithole where the kids didn't play and the vets never sniffed the playoffs. With John Hammond in town, he may extend Aaron Gordon and start drafting even more long armed players like he did with the Bucks. Already started with Jonathan Isaac and the Magic might be awful enough to draft someone like Mohammad Bamba next year. Then flip Vucevic for whatever you can get.

Reasonable deals just don't exist in the NBA anymore, Harris numbers aren't sustainable over a larger sample size and his contract will always look awful but at least the Nuggets can afford it since Jokic makes fuck all and they have reasonable deals for other solid starters/a fuck ton of rookie scale deals.

>The Thunder also aren’t as blatant about giving Westbook rebounds as they’re made out to be. Yes, it’s conspicuous that Westbrook is pulling in 8.5 uncontested rebounds per game, up from 5.9 a season ago. But we can track how often teammates give up a rebound so that a nearby teammate can pick up the ball: It’s a stat called deferred rebound chances. This season, the number of the Thunder’s deferred chances has decreased to 16.8 per game from a league-high 17.7 a season ago. What’s changed? Well, the 6.6 uncontested rebounds per game Kevin Durant collected in 2015-16 needed to be redistributed somewhere.

Imagine being Lonzo in this picture and having to be all like "damn, Brandon Ingram, you fuckin' fine, all sexy with your lanky body and horrific androgynous monster duck face. I would totally play pick-up basketball with you, both as a Laker and the real me." when all he really wants to do is have Kevin Durant's superior aesthetics in his locker room. Like seriously imagine having to be Lonzo and not only sit in that chair while Brandon Ingram flaunts his disgusting body in front of you, the favorable colors of the Lakers jersey barely concealing his stretchmarks and ashy skin, and just sit there, picture after picture, hour after hour, while he perfected that smile. Not only having to tolerate his monstrous fucking visage but his haughty attitude as everyone on the court tells him he's GOT IT and DAMN, BRANDON INGRAM BALLS LIKE *THAT*?? because they're not the ones who have to sit there and pass him the ball while he shoots 2-12 from the field and didn't even know someone worse at basketball than LaVar Ball existed before that day. You've been passing nothing but a healthy diet of no-look passes and alley oops for your ENTIRE AMATEUR CAREER coming straight out of the suburbs in Los Angeles. You've never even seen anything this fucking awful before, and now you swear you can taste the sweat that's breaking out on his pimpled forehead as he runs up and down the court next to you, smugly assured that you are enjoying the opportunity to get paid to sit there and revel in his "much improved (for that is what he calls himself)" talent, the talent he worked so hard for with personal trainers in the off-season the previous months. And then the picture taker calls for another shot, and you know you could kill every single person on the court before the arena security could put you down, but you sit there and endure, because you're fucking Lonzo Ball. You're not going to lose your future hall of fame career over this. Just bear it. Hide your face and bear it.

I don't understand how people can say that the Rockets only have 2 stars. Really? Trevor Ariza? Eric Gordon? Ryan Anderson? Especially Eric Gordon and Ariza. Ariza is gonna put up at least 18ppg this season and with Eric Gordon having Chris Paul and James Harden he's gonna get so many open looks and knock down so many of them that he'll probably average 18 ppg too.

OKC Methheads and Bronsexuals are the only hypocrites still whining about KD. Methheads would have a point if KD was playing for the Wizards and not literally a team their flyover shithole stole from another city. Bronsexuals are salty because KD playing for GS, while healthy, practically guarantees LePopcorn will never win another ring for the next 2 to 4 years, so Bron's Finals record, going forward, is more fucked than his sprayed-on hairline.

Lastly, there's the retards that legit RP as Russell Westbrook fans and cry endlessly about how KD screwed Brodie, exactly what how braindead Esp!n journalist tell them to, and swear up and down OKC is better without KD, Harden, Ibaka, Kanter and all this talent their inept FO pisses away, while genuinely wishing ill and injury on former players and care about 'storylines' instead of actual basketball and need to fuck off back to /asp/ to their mandrama threads.
>>
>>78794779
Westbrook fans are legit retarded, Lebron fans whine too much like their God. They got mad at KD for going to a stacked team then got mad at Kyrie for leaving a stacked one, the only thing they're mad about is both equally hinder Lebron's chances of winning.

The Kyrie outrage is the most laughable shit I've ever seen.

Literally nothing matters but giving new guys minutes. LeBron could miss the entire preseason and it wouldn't matter because the East is so dog shit they could drop 10/15 of their first games and still finish as the #1 seed.

What about the warriors who took a while to develop. What about OKC? Players need time to develop. Front offices improperly evaluating talent is another issue.

The twolves were a playoff caliber team last year but choked away game after game. Where were his coaching adjustments? Why do his offensive sets look like some shit out of the 90s? Why was he unable to reach his team defensively? Sounds like Thibs is pointing fingers when he had an extremely talented team
