    Excellent move by Clippers resigning Jamychal Green. Versatile big but undersized. They still need another true big in my opinion in order to bang eat up some minutes and fouls with the Laker bigs.

    Clippers, Rockets,Jazz,Lakers,Warriors,Blazers,Nuggets, Spurs

    unless injury to star happens that's basically a locks for western conference playoofs.

    From top 11 teams by betting is this 8 west teams + 3 east teams Bucks, Sixers and Celtics

    I see Bucks in NBA finals 2020 for sure in West it will be dog fights

    East superstars Gianni's,Durant, Irving,Embid,Kemba basically that only 5 players from top 20 players of entire league.

    Next few years east will be fight between Bucks and Nets for place in NBA finals.

    I expect Westbrook to be traded East, so thats something watch out for. Also Kemba top 20 player? dont think so. But I would Butler.

    Do not underestimate Kings also for western conference. They might be interesting to watch.

    Yeah kings, Mavs,pelicans upcoming teams for sure, but this year they won't have enough star power to overcome those 8 really strong and deep teams. Blazers and Spurs are projected 7-8 seeds that's really strong playoffs lineup

    If Heat trade for Westbrook that would be wild team to watch Westbrook+Butler but no way a seriuos contender with such "leaders"

    I don't believe Sixers with Embid and Simmons can go anywhere, they don't like each other,they don't fit together at some point Philly will need to choose one and trade other.

    Kyle Korver is bought out now he’s looking at 3 contenders, the Lakers, Bucks and 76ers.
    He’s a great fit for all three but I think Milwaukee would be best. He would reunite with Budenholzer and probably would get more playing time than in LA.

    Why people are getting exited about super tall dudes? I have to honest and to say to me it kinda looks almost creepy and somehow untasty. Like a cheap shot or something, we'll get super long dude and will throw it there. I have to be honest and to say I don't like how Marjanovic looks on the floor, he's super lanky, awkward and makes the court aglier instantly. He's super cool person and so on, but to me it is like it is. Now this guy Tacko Fall is playing in the summer league and the crowd loves him, I don't get it. To me it's wise versa. I think 2.20cm is that bordline, all after that is kinda almost sick to me. I know Sabonis was 2.21cm or so, but he wasn't lanky, he was a fit, good looking man, and young Sabonis was even highly mobile.

    I really thought those super long guys (lanky and awkward) kinda spoiling the game. What's your opinion?

    I feel exactly the opposite. I miss those giants in the modern basketball and that's why i like even more them nowadays. By the way, what those extremely tall people should do? That's right - play basketball. When a big fellow is skinny and weak or too slow and unwieldy then it's complicated. But if his body and legs are strong then it's a complitely another story. Mentioned Marjanovic is a good example. I wish he returned to Europe. Then another one example is Tavares who IMO is one of the most interesting players to watch in Europe. His signing was one of the reasons why Real won a title a year ago. He deservedly got a big contract as he is probably the best rim protector playing in Europe. I also remembered Duenjas - he was scary But that's a sport - not some beauty show. Even if such a big is awkward - it's not worse than a guard who is a bad shooter or a soft big. By the way, our best bigs Sabonis and Ilgauskas were 2.21 (as well as other mentioned players). They weren't awkward but they were so legend including because of their height.

    So my answer is no way, those super big players (like Marjanovic) don't spoil the game at all. Oppositely, they make it more interesting.

    Yes, I dont want him in LA. He is great great shooter, from the best in the game. but when it matters he doesnt knock them down.Remember when Lebron found him open vs warriors in game 3 2017, and he missed a shot that he always makes.

    Yeah I absolutely remember that shot. It was a big miss. LeBron made the pass and then of course got knocked when Jordan made the exact same pass in similar situations to Steve Kerr and John Paxson. The difference was they made the shots.

    Just to pour some cold water on Kawhi is taking over the NBA narrative, obviously his dynasty killer monicker is moronic since injuries killed the Warrior dynasty and a historically balanced Spurs did in the Heat. He also caught a huge break with the Warrior injuries by not having to guard Durant that takes enormous effort and could have effected his offense as well. But consider that in Game 6 on the Road in the deciding NBA Finals game he scored a grand total of 0 points in a tied game for the entire 4th quarter until some free throws with 1 second left when after the technical foul for having no time outs the Warriors were cooked. He could have missed those free throws and they would have needed a miracle. I cant think of any other of the greats who led their teams titles being as irrelevant and non factors as that in such a crucial moment. His team didnt even need him to close the deal on the road. And sooner or later hes gonna have to stamp his greatness with a league MVP award. Hes gotta win it at least once, I mean just about every great player has that on his resume.

    Marcus Morris pulls a DeAndre Jordan and pulls out of an agreement to sign with the Spurs. Instead he inks a one year deal for more money with the Knicks. Can’t really blame him, he took the extra cash and a chance to play and put up numbers and get another crack at free agency next year. The Spurs aren’t going anywhere this year anyway. They rebounded by signing Canadian big Trey Lyles.

    Boom Shacka-Lacka

    Morey inspired by usagre advanced analytics decides to trade CP3 plus 2024 and 2026 1st round picks, along with 2021 and 2025 pick swaps for Russell Westbrook

    I know one thing for sure, I will be watching a shitload of Rockets games this year. This will be must-see TV

    Wow that’s crazy! Harden and Westbrook reunited. That team wasn’t winning anything with Paul or Westbrook. He got rid of the Paul contract but substituted it for Westbrook.

    More importantly can you say Chris Paul buyout and signs minimum with the Lakers. Maybe Clippers but I don’t think it ended well with Doc Rivers.

    I’ll be back I have to shoot over to my sportsbook and put down a couple on the Lakers. They are second choice at +480 but I have a feeling that’s gonna change in a hurry.

    What a call that Chris Paul will have to make. I can’t realistically see any team taking on his 3 year 120 million+ contract.
    Will he seriously eat all that money to go ring chase ?

    It was clear that CP3 will not get along with Harden anymore. This guy is not normal. Really hard to handle... weird character. Just Wall is weirder. On OKC side it was clear that you cant win anything with Westbrook as your leader but they wont start a total rebuild if i am not mistaken.

    It’s so funny with the Anthony Davis trade, Paul George, Westbrook and others teams are giving out future draft picks like it’s nothing. And what did that genius in San Antonio get for Kawhi Leonard ?
    DeMar DeRozan. That’s incredible.

    Oh they will start a rebuild alright. They have 7 future first round draft picks between those two trades, not including their own which they will enhance by tanking. There will be a fire sale. Adams, Gallinari and Chris Paul won’t finish the year in Oklahoma City. Gilgeous-Alexander is the only piece worth holding on to.
