    Without Lebron, Cavs would be a lottery team this year. They are playing in the finals now. I think enough said.

    Only because they were in the East and both Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward were injured.

    Lol please. Kyrie would've probably cost his team the series with his stupid, lazy play.

    Can you show me a single reference for this odd claim? To say that Kyrie Irving would damage Boston instead of helping them to defeat Cleveland is crazy as far as I am concerned.

    For your information ; Kyrie is 5 times all-star and 1 time all-nba team and he is just 26 years old. And many respectable commentators stated that he is a superstar.

    Lol because winning popularity contests and being put into the perfect position to put up stats your whole career means you're a winner.

    There's no such thing as a respectable commentator these days. Former players sure. But most commentators are just talking heads. With the exception of legends like Marv Alberts.

    It's an odd claim to you because you seem to be all about hating on LeBron. But it's not an odd claim. It's how Kyrie has played every single game of his career.

    It's an odd claim because no respectable commentator would say Kyrie Irving would damage Boston, and %99 of the supporters would say Kyrie would win the series for Boston. Only %1, whose are usually Lebron fans or Kyrie haters would say Kyrie would damage Boston. I mean it's just crazy to say that. It has nothing to do with hating Lebron, it's the fact. If Boston can carry the series to 7 games against a fully healty Lebron, then a superstar like Kyrie would end the series before even the seventh game. Not even talking about Hayward who is an all-star.

    You're watching the current finals right? Why do you think Curry is performing better than previous finals? Because he doesn't need to waste his energy on Kyrie Irving on defense. That's how important Kyrie was.

    Aside first 2, it goes in random order.

    Jordan
    James
    Stockton
    Bryant
    Duncan
    Pipen
    Olajuwon
    Leonard
    Karl Malone
    Klay Thompson (most underrated player in current NBA)

    As I matured as a basketball fan, I learned to treat 2 ways players as the best players in the business and overall to value defence. No one dimentional players in my list.

I’ve outlined my reasons

    Charlotte was about to lose Walker for nothing. They had a gaping hole at the starting PG position and there weren’t many viable options out there, especially considering their lack of an attractive market.fedloan irs.gov easybib


    Rozier is only 25 years old and matches up well in age with the rest of the Hornets’ young core.

    While Rozier has had a turbulent time in the league numbers wise, his 2018 postseason numbers (16.2, 5.6, 5.2) were no fluke. He’s shown the potential to lead and put up nice numbers when he’s given full control of a team, and Charlotte will give him just that.

    This contract is only three years, and the Hornets aren’t competing for anything anytime soon. Not to mention much of they have money to spend with much of their albatross contracts coming off the books the next two summers.

    Rozier would be heavily compelled to re-sign with Charlotte should he transform into a starting-caliber guard (a huge conditional, but still a very valid point). Remember that much of his trouble in Boston was due to the fact that they never prioritized him. Loyalty clearly matters to him.

    All in all, this is a very low risk, high reward move to me. If Rozier doesn’t perform, you can cut your losses and move on. If he does, you have a franchise point guard on a rather nice salary considering the max deals that have gone out. This could very well end up being a steal for the Hornets once all is said and done. I just don’t see why many were calling this the worst signing of FA when I personally believe Harris and Middleton signed worse contracts given their respective roles on their teams.
    It was a fine deal for the Hornets... I don't know if the C's have won it and to be truthful, I don't give an F on who ended better... I only know that the Hornets have three future All Stars in their line up on Graham, Bridges and Washington and therefore Rosier was an excellent choice to keep the team going until they fully shine...

    The Hornets have a bright future ahead of them... They may have their ups and downs this season due to their talents youth, but one should expect them to be a real threat for the following seasons...

    Well one of them I see it right now, and it's Luka Doncic. Flat out superstar and bond to GOAT. His numbers are ridiculous, but he is even smarter, more skilled than some 20yo Lebron. I think Doncic has everything to become all time best European player.

    I kinda silently wish to switch Slovenia for Croatia (which is stacked with NBA guys, but much more limited, predictable and chucking prone) in Olympic qualification, this guy has the skillset and IQ to drop 40pts even on the FIBA court and to single-handedly lead Slovenia.

    I agree about the best European ever comment. But let’s relax about comparing him to LeBron. Luka hasn’t played playoff basketball yet. When he does he’s in for a rude awakening. All the “it’s easier to score in the NBA than Euroleague nonsense will be re-examined I guarantee you.

    At 21 LeBron finished second in the NBA mvp voting as did Kevin Durant.
    At 22 LeBron dragged his team to the NBA finals. When Luka accomplishes stuff like that let’s talk.

    There was a 20 year old named Earvin Johnson that wasn’t too shabby either.

    I think it's fair to at least throw a comparison to some degree. Both guard forwards, both at 20 making silly things. I think they are compared exactly in the fashion of being 20yo, not in the perspective of the upside in the first place. Seems like Mavs will make it to PO, so we'll see.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo is the best player in the world right now and is about to become the greatest player the sport has ever known within a couple of years or so...

    Giannis will most likely repeat as NBA MVP. But the true greats solidify those awards with championships. Otherwise he will be Steve Nash and Karl Malone. Multiple time MVP award winners but without the prize.
