  1. Sounds like the Nuggets gave MPJ the full boat on his extension. Not sure how I feel about that, but I guess it isn't my money. We're about to see if Kroenke actually is willing to pay the luxury tax.
  2. So is Mythic Quest. I was loathe to get Apple tv but so far it's been well worth the $5/month.
  3. Buyouts go through the waiver process for the original salary, so if they were to do this in the off-season, anybody with $35m in cap space could sign him. Alternatively, if the agreed to a buyout right now, there is hardly any salary cap money out there, so he would likely sign for an exception somewhere which would be a massive hit to his salary. So, hypothetically they could agree to a buyout but it'll never happen because he either looses tons of money or he'd likely end up with a horrible team that he would have no control of.
  4. One of my favorite sports memories of my childhood was when I met him. My family (my mom's parents, first row of the second level on the aisle right at the edge of the big scoreboard) had season tickets back in the late 70s through early 90s and for years season tickets holders would get a pass per seat to the player meet and greet. In probably '92 when I was 6 or 7, I got to go and that meant lots of autographs. The session was ending as I was in line to meet (at the time) Chris Jackson - I was close to him in line, but still a few people/groups deep when the time ended. I started crying so he came around the table and picked me up and held me while he talked to my dad and me for a couple minutes while signing a couple things for us. My memories are fuzzy but my dad told me he was a fantastically warm and genuine person and that tracks with how my 6 YO self felt. Between that and other things I've read about him, he seems like a great person. From a purely basketball standpoint, he was a man before his time. He could have been Lillard or Curry-esque with his handle and shooting ability. Also kind of a man before his time politically/socially. I think the current BLM movement owes him a bit of a tip of the cap to his stance with the anthem 30 years ago.
  5. This is one of the worst transactions in the history of the NBA. This would have stuck out in the drunken spending spree that was 2016 free agency BUT they also dropped a first round pick and two seconds. Amazing. Eta: And a player of fairly similar quality that fit the roster better.
  6. More proof that the Lakers are one of the worst run organizations in sports, they just happen to fall ### backwards into success because they are the Lakers.
  7. Grant had a fantastic playoffs after a very mediocre season. Gordon was very good in the regular season for the Nuggets (other than his shooting) and was really bad in the playoffs. I still think Gordon is the better player.
  8. Hell of a last 16 minutes for the Nuggets. I thought they were cooked half way through the 3rd.
  9. 6-7 from three so far tonight in 9 minutes of game action. Career 44% 3 point shooter and a lot of those are with a guy all over him.
  10. The Nuggets aren't trading Murray, even for an improvement in talent - he is too central to their culture. I also don't think Lillard is necessarily an improvement over MPJ AND Murray (if healthy). Porter might be the best shooter in the league behind Curry, Thompson, and Lillard and he's only in his 2nd season and Murray is a pretty good facsimile of Lillard.
  11. McCollum for Harris works straight up and would be a decent trade for both sides. Philly might have to throw a little something in there, but it's a decent start.
  12. Nurkic seems like a guy to hold onto as well. He's gotten into a lot of foul trouble but he's been fantastic. It seems he's improved his athleticism since his broken leg and dropped a bit of weight.
  13. Jokic has been awesome, but everybody expected that. The Nuggets gotta be playing the worst backcourt in the NBA right now. Certainly the worst in the playoffs. And they are playing really well - Morris was probabaly the third best player on the court yesterday and Rivers has outplayed McCollum all series.
  14. Even if they do, where does it get them? The Blazers are being beat by Rivers and Facu, the Suns have Paul and Booker.
  15. For most improved? He was worse statistically across the board other than a huge jump in usage and a moderate jump in assist rate. He was below league average on shooting efficiency.
  16. I don't think they need to blow it up (probably), just replace McCollum with a good forward and get a new coach. McCollum is a great tough shot maker, but otherwise he's just a guy.
  17. I think Sabonis is the better player, but his skill set is much easier to replace than Turners and his trade value is going to be much higher, I would think. I would trade Sabonis before Turner.
  18. If they don't, it's a giant #### up. The last thing they want is to play the Lakers in round 1. The Blazers are going to be desperate to win as well. Time to roll out Bol Bol.
  19. I looked up his stats last night... I knew he didn't play much and didn't really deserve a roster spot BUT he's only played like 500 minutes in the last 6 seasons TOTAL. I can't imagine there has ever been a player that was full time on a roster with fewer minutes over 6 seasons.
  20. I think fouls and free throws are at about all time lows. The unnatural shooting motions getting fouls needs to be addressed, but otherwise, I think the refs are better than ever (low bar to be sure) and making a more free flowing game. There are definitely some things the NBA could do on the margins, but generally, I think they legislated a better NBA over the last 25 years.
