Ok I have to inform you all yet again that Lebron is going to walk straight through the Eastern Conference yet again. One game means nothing. They all crumble in the end.

Please take a moment to admire the great LeBron for the special talent he is. It never gets old looking at the King's history. So many accomplishments Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan will never achieve:

1.Only player in NBA history to quit because of Air Conditioner.
2.Quit on his team the year after he promises a championship.
3.Dunked on by a high school kid then confiscates the tape.
4.Bail on the dunk contest 9 times.
5.Only able to win a ring with 2 superstars.
6.Play on same team as his moms boyfriend.
7.Average 1.8 pts in the 4th quarter of NBA finals.
8.Lose not 1, not 2, but 5 times in the Finals.
9.Host a national televised TV show to leave his team.
10.Go 2 for 18 in an NBA playoff game.
11.Get stuffed by a player under 6 feet. (Nate Robinson)
12.Flop every single game in the playoff 5 out of 6 finals games by dropping FG% by 18.
13. shilled, voted for hillarry and got BTFO
14. 0 Rings if not for refs calling early fouls on Durant and Westbrook it threw them out of rhythm, made them play soft, and sit for big parts of the game which changed the flow and momentum of the finals.
15. First person to show his dick and lose in a Finals game.
16. got shut down by a bench player who ended up getting finals MVP
17. could not post up jj barea
18.got outscored by Jason Terry in an entire finals series

>Philly's autistic sports fanbase now has multiple elite teams to never shut up about

How did we let this happen? How could we have prevented this? This is a disaster.
>>
>>82948532

it honestly baffles me how so many "experts" completely didnt understand the process. it's not like it's some advanced equation that requires a super intelligence to understand.

it's just:

1) you almost always need a superstar to win the nba finals
2) best way to acquire a superstar is through the draft
3) we should acquire the best draft picks while keeping our cap flexible to strike when that superstar(s) does appear

how do these dipshits that spend decades covering the NBA not grasp this
>>
Kawhi to Pelicans + some picks fron Boston and Spurs
AD to Boston
J Brown (he is very intellectual so he fits) to Spurs + some picks

Who says no?

be around some kind of team and move your way up. be a towel boy for a college team, know the XO of the game. learn how to read defensive schemes, offensive schemes, rotations, and apply those skills onto a team.

probably. but you have to be aware that college coaches have the biggest fucking ego so they might not give you the time of day. but its worth a shot.

if not you can probably volunteer at a high school and whats not. but the most important thing is that you understand basketball. you need to study sets like the Princeton offense, triangle offense, motion offense, and then read up on defensive schemes like Thibbodeau defensive schemes which completely changed the way offenses scored points in the NBA.

Both Simmons and Embiid could be substantially better players than Hayward, the bench is just as deep and the future is a wee bit brighter. Celtics have a big edge in terms of coaching and Im a Kyrie Truther all day, but they could definitely just big shot the Celts when the time comes.

It wasn't just 1 year. It was every year they had a #2 overall. They were bound to lose that pick to Phoenix (part of the Nash trade) before Phoenix panicked and dumped that pick on the Sixers when Dragic was unhappy and settled for Brandon Knight.

Catching up on the Rockets game. The Rockets don't look locked-in at all defensively and CP3 was spaghetti. I know it's a cliche, but they need to put in more effort.

Thankfully playing a team like the Timberwolves 1st rd lets everyone settle down, find their shot and learn from their mistakes. The T'wolves aren't hot shit on defence either and it was still a win even though Harden had to carry the Rockets offensively. It's unlikely the team will have another offensive game quite this bad.

Boston could easily do it while keeping Kyrie and Hayward, they would just need to deal Horford to make the salaries work. They could even take on Pau's contact if they wanted to - something like Horford, Tatum, Rozier, and a first-rounder would easily be enough to get it done. It's mostly just a question of whether Kawhi would want to re-sign in Boston or not.

>Would Kawhi on the Clippers make them better than the Lakers?

lol, easily. I mean, that's not really saying much, since they're already better than the Lakers, but adding Kawhi would make it official

>And why would the Spurs do this trade?

Well, no one's saying that they definitely will - the reporting so far is mostly just that they're planning on offering a package, and half the league is going to be offering a package of some kind

That said, the Clippers can offer a lot, especially if they think Kawhi is going to re-sign there. Something like Tobias Harris, Sindarius Thornwell, Jawun Evans, plus the 12th and 13th picks in the draft - that's a really strong package IMO

Is there any reason to think that this is true, besides being an insane Lakers fan? the Clippers are in LA, and if they traded for Kawhi, they would be a much more competitive team than the Lakers over the next 2-3 years, and they would be able to pay Kawhi more than the Lakers would in FA, so I don't know why Kawhi would leave the Clippers for the Lakers in FA. This seems like Lakers Fan Mania to me.

You know Kawhi's MURDERED DAD was a Laker fan, right? His dad, who got shot in cold blood, was a diehard Laker fan.You don't think he'd want to honor him?

And the Lakers have a GOAT young core of Ingram, Lonzo, and Kuzma along with Paul George by then.

>>82954974
Tobias Harris is good and Sindarius Thornwell has shown signs. Jawun Evans probably isn't anything but you might as well toss him in there. Tobias Harris was better last year than most of the Lakers team.

>>82954993
DeAndre Jordan and Lou Will are good. And then a bunch of other guys who are useful secondary guys on a playoff team (Montrezl Harrell, Milos Teodosic, Danilo Gallinari, Boban).

Again, the Clippers were a significantly better team than the Lakers last year.

He has already been there. Maybe he wanted to try something new, wanted a challenge, there's not anything there for him or maybe he just hates Jeanie Buss.

>>82955276
Not really. They had a 9pt lead with 4 minutes left and managed to hold their lead through the rest of the game. The Rockets held Minnesota to scoring 11pts in the last 4 minutes (including their miraculous and ridiculous 2pter after the FT) - which made the T'Wolves winning pretty much impossible.

The Rockets are very good at protecting relatively small leads in the last few minutes and killing the clock - remember that it doesn't matter whether they win by 2 or 10 as long as they get the win.

>>82955365
DeAndre Jordan is an FA and probably won't come back. Harrell is gone too. On a good night, Lou Will is basically an older Kyle Kuzma without the defense.

All the Clippers can offer Kawhi (assuming Kawhi is traded) is more money, but being a Laker is probably worth more than his brand. He's not satisfied with the Spurs because of the shitty branding opportunities. There is a WORLD of difference between the Lakers and Clippers on this as well.
>>
>>82955522
branding opportunities are the least of kawhi leonard's worries. his uncle seems to care a lot about that, though. fuck his uncle.
>>
Alright, the Reptars have a bunch of assets in their farm team, and they really need to ditch nuclear Powell after his garbage season.

Who can they add to consistently win? My gut says LeBron is going out west and OGwan Kenobi looks like what we hopes Terrance Ross would be. Their is little hope that they'll sign a big ticket free agent, but I bet a first from Philly for Norman and maybe Bebe would be pretty realistic.

DJ would come back if they traded for Kawhi

So, in other words, the exact same reasons that Lakers fans have said that every single top-tier free agent for the last decade was going to sign with the Lakers

The Spurs still have LMA playing pretty well and a good core of veterans. Why would they trade Kawhi for future prospects? If they got another high-level player it's possible they could still make a run. If Aldridge were poised to leave I could see it, but he just signed an extension last summer.

With the Lakers, there’s a CLEAR vision on what they want to do and where they’re going. Not only are they going to get max FA’s now, but also have a core that knows how to win in Kuzma, Lonzo and Ingram that can win into their future

Once the torch is passed from the Kawhi/LeBron/PG13 core, those FAs can win in the future once Lonzo/Kuzma/Ingram’s games have more developed

The clippers have NO SUCH vision
>>
>>82955576
>>82955638
I'm betting on MJ trading Kemba for him. Sounds pretty even in my opinion
>>
How do you all rank Kawhi, PG, Butler, and Giannis?
>>
>>82955576
The Spurs need someone to drive to the basket the way young Ginobili and Parker use to do. They don't have that anymore.

Murry and Anderson are the only players that try, but Murry misses a lot of layups and Anderson is extremely slow. Green has tried it every once in a while too, but not a lot.
>>
>>82955668
>Not only are they going to get max FA’s now

Are they? We don't know that.

Giannis is too passive and scared to take over in games. He doesn't even look for the ball late in close games and for someone that's a decent passer he doesn't really know how to make or see plays happening.

My predicted Kawhi trade set. (This actually need to be done in 2 trades not 1 3 way trade)

LA gets Jabari and Kawhi
Spurs get Ingram a Milwaukee 1st rounder and a Lakers 1st and 2nd rounder
Bucks get Kuzma and Hart.

>>82955971
Both say no.

>The Greek fraud

Lakers won't trade for kawhi when they're about to just buy two max contract players and keep their youth. Spurs wouldn't let kawhi go for a small price either.

Giannis is #1 in the league in barreling to the basket with his head down then hurling an off-balance pass to nobody if someone actually defends him.

>>82955986

Jabari and a number 1 for Kuzma and Heart.

Lonzo
PG
Jabari
Ingram
Center

The only way the Spurs sign Kawhi to a 200 miles deal and then trade him is if he continues to be hurt. Even then they won't get much of anything for a hurt Kawhi.

But the Spurs are a loyal team and would most likely keep him even if he was hurt.

just to make it clear since everything is such a fucking mess.

i'd like for kawhi leonard to sign and extension an retire as a spur with more rings than fingers on one hand. he's a transcendental player. elite on defense and dominant on offense. perfect physical tools, hitting his prime years, supreme bb education, razor sharp competitor. tricky personality bordering on the pathological but the spurs and their small media market can make things work. you don't give up on someone like him, ever.

i don't believe he's faking his injury either. he's injured. he wouldn't sit out just because either. the spurs send coaches out to san diego and LA over the summer to keep him from working too much.

the front office doesn't even have a problem with leonard seeking outside counsel. but it's obvious the communication breakdowns between him, the front office, and his teammates have done some damage to their relationships that may not be reparable anymore. you don't know what's up. you don't know if you can invest 219 million dollars over the next five years into someone you can neither talk with nor do a proper medical assessment of, especially since it's clearer than ever he might have developed a chronic and/or degenerative issue.

but it all started with leonard's fucking uncle taking over more and more formal business management duties. did some digging around and it seems leonard isn't represented by brian elfus anymore at all, after he reportedly yielded some responsibilities to robertson after leonard signed his last contract. there's no mention of leonard on elfus' new agency site. for all we know, his entirely unqualified uncle has taken over all things kawhi leonard.

look at this jordan brand sneaker deal bullshit. does anyone actually and really think kawhi leonard gives a shit about sneakers? he still drives a 1997 chevy tahoe.

tl,dr; fuck dennis robertson. he's killing a spurs dynasty in the making and he's potentially killing his nephew's career. asshole.
>>
>>82956252

It puts them right back in mediocre land when they finally have the opportunity to escape. No way in hell Kawhi resigns and giving up a top 3 pick in a draft with at least 4 gamechangers for a rental is retarded

>>82956238

>>82956328
Kawhi may resign if they do good, who knows. Him conley and gasol could be a force in the west. The grizzlies aren't doing anything with conley gasol and parsons under contract for the next while anyway. It's either win now or waste whatever talent they get in the draft
>>
Capela was a fucking monster last night
>>
>>82956318
I also am giving Kawhi the benefit of the doubt about his injury. Whether he's really hurt or it's all in his mind.

I also think its ESPN and media making up most of the trade rumors about Kawhi. I have never once heard Kawhi talk about wanting to be traded or even hinting it. What NBA player has wanted a trade about a team and never said a word about it?

Towns wasnt aggressively looking for the ball. A few times there was a guard switched on him and he would just hide in the corner. Butler also wasn't aggressive on either end.
