Re: 2017 NBA Off-Season Thread

And the league would immediately shut down as they barter for a new CBA.

Warriors continually opening windows for the opposition though. Or just trying to prove they can win with anyone on their team, be it Matt Barnes, Mcgee, or Swaggy P. Cmon Vincanity, I just want you to win a ring.

Would Lebron play center? How would he even fit in that lineup?

Anyway...reports are that the Cs are looking to trade for Gasol. Now THAT is a game-changer for the East if it goes down.

I'd be pretty excited about Gasol (depending of course on what they give up), but he really just helps them smoke the regular season and beat the Cavs, he's not so much help against the Ws.

I spent 10 minutes thinking you guys were talking about Pau and how delusional you all were about him being a game changer at his age. He was a lame duck for the Spurs this year but looking online I see it's Marc and yeah that would be a great fit for them.

I think the Celtics are better then the Cavs now but if they added Gasol also they would be unstoppable in the East.

They are definitely not better than the Cavs now. They are significantly weaker inside and on the boards. The Cavs bench is also much better. Now, if the Cavs trade love for Anthony, I may re-think that position.

So Steph, Durant and Draymond all personally reached out to Nick Young to recruit him. Maybe that's commonplace now but three all NBA stars reaching out to recruit a journeyman mle guy. I mean how many more threes can the Warriors possibly hit next year?

Like I said my opinion is they are better than the Cavs so I guess we'll just have to disagree on that.

To use your word, that opinion is delusional.

Dion Waiters returns to the Heat on a 4 year deal.

The Knicks were supposedly interested in him, glad he signed elsewhere.

I mean... sorry that you hate the state of the league, but I for one am having a lot of fun talking about free agency and draft picks
It sure is going to suck watching the Warriors win for years to come while everyone else plays for second place.

Exactly! Not a terrible look to get some mentoring for Frank but not an offseason to get excited about. The best thing for the Knicks is no longer having to force the triangle into a round hole.

Memphis will retire Z-Bo's number.

Nice move by the Grizz, as he had a huge impact on that team and city.

I actually think LeBron would slide in as point guard/point forward on the Warriors. He wouldn't have to score much and could rack up assists.

Very cool, surprised to seem them talk about that now while he's still playing for another team.

It's the same promise that Jim Ersay made at the Colts' Farewell press conference before Peyton Manning went to the Broncos : No other player will ever wear his number. The number won't be retired officially until after he retires.

I think it's the exact same thing Miami said about Bosh just a couple of days ago.

And now they signed Milos Teodosic. Instead of blowing it up after losing Chris Paul they sneakily have a better team.

PG - Milos
SG - Beverley
SF - Gallo
PF - Griffin
C - DJ

That's a good lineup.
