2018-19 NBA Thread: Magic Johnson leaves Lakers in order to pursue other jobs to be completely terrible at

Recommended Posts

I feel sorry for the restricted free agents.  I thought we'd see at least one sign an offer sheet on the first day today but :crickets:

The moratorium really hurts them.  Most of free agency is done before they can even sign with another team and start the 2-day match clock.  The NBA really needs to fix this.

Really hoping houston gets melo.

I guess they won't have to pay Melo 15 million, but once they lost Ariza, Houston's title chances went with him, unless they can replace his 3&D.

Teams get caught up having an arms race offensively with the Dubs, but as long as you have playmakers that can get by Curry you'll be fine. The key is having no weak links on defense that the Dubs will consistently abuse.

Melo and Harden would be opening up the floodgates for the Dubs.

If you want to know what it feels like to be a Wizards fan I can’t really think of a more perfect example than giving a 34 year old Dwight Howard a totally unecessary player option for a second year while your team is still hamstrung by totally unnecessary player options it gave to guys still on the roster.  

:lmao: i'm guessing you may already know, but Andrew Sharp from the Open Floor Podcast is a Wizards fan. He has a nice 15 minute discussion about the Wizards in the beginning of their most recent one. 

Speaking of which, those guys brought up a funny idea. It seems like a lot on the Sports networks are behind the Lakers and their off-season moves. They brought up the idea that if LeBron resigned with the Cavs, and they made all the moves the Lakers have they would be the butt of every joke for the entire summer.

I am so glad the Pistons used all their cap space on Blake. It would have been horrible to have 2 of these 4 guys instead of Blake. Smart, Randle, Lavine, and Parker. We might even have gotten 3 of them if we traded Tobias for an expiring and a pick. 

I hate Tom Gores.

I think i can confidently say I am not a Boston nut-hugger, so i think i can say with some objectivity that I would be pissed off i were Marcus Smart too. The fact that he hasn't heard from anybody from Boston is just disrespectful, but it happened last year too so he shouldn't be surprised. But seeing all of these other players go in free agency when Smart can likely bring more to the table has to be a bit infuriating. Maybe his agent sucks or something, but the buzzword for all the Lakers signings were that they wanted to bring in "toughness". Well, i think Smart can bring some of that, plus some dependable skill. if has to settle for 1 year at 6 million it will be a shame. Luckily for Boston they hit it right with Stephenson, and i think that guy can help focus Smart and use his anger to play well next season if this happens.

76ers Furkan Korkmaz with 40 in the summer game vs Boston.  

I am hoping it is legit, and not just pulling a Jalyen Brown with 2nd year guys who play in summer league. But the kid has some impressive shooting. 

Lebron who?????

can't skip Korkmaz in that group. Kid has to put on some muscle, but he is a true sharp shooter from 3

I don't understand the non love from some Sixers fans on Korkmaz. I mentioned him to a few people along with my cousins and they were all like yeah he can go in the Leonard deal. And he just put up 40 pts in Summer league and had 8 3s I believe from 13 Shots behind the arc. Dude needs playing time though in the regular season.

I assume now that the Kings will sign Jabari after the Bulls match.

Hope so. Unless Denver is dangling an unprotected first to get out of paying the tax, I’m not sure there’s a better way to use cap room this year.

Never been a fan of young, but curry wasnt "the curry" till his fourth season.  Regardless, i cant see young being on that level ever.

Only reason people were comparing him to Curry was they are the same size and he shoots 3s. I don't watch a ton of Big12 basketball so I do wonder though how good the teams in the conference are defensively as well. Out of conference I saw him play a tough Alabama team who held him to one of his worst shooting nights of the season.

had some good games in Turkey in between the season and summer league too (25 points on 9 shots one night i think). He was dealing with a nagging injury this year, i'll be happy if he gets 10-15 a night

I just didn't get why he wasn't getting mins. It got to the point where "why don't you send him to G League for some minutes if he isn't gonna play?" He was the pick I really liked that year by the team though. Seen a lot of fans sleeping on him.

What league did Curry play in again?  And how do you think teams started guarding Oklahoma after that hot first month?

 

By the way, in 2007-08 Curry faced these Kenpom ranked teams:

#1 Kansas

#3 North Carolina

#4 UCLA

#5 Wisconsin

#6 Duke

#7 Georgetown

The best two defenses Young faced this year were Texas twice and Texas Tech twice.  He shot 9-43 from 3P in those 4 games
