just a fun 2016 wish list for Bulls:

-have Markieff Morris though Taj Gibson trade
-KD leaves OKC and signs with us
-do not resign Aaron Brooks or Kirk Hinrich.
-let Noah walk(free cap space for KD)
-Gasol returns for one last year

Rose/(draft/FA)
Butler/McDermott/Snell
KD/Dunleavy/Snell
Morris/Mirotic/Felicio
Gasol/Portis/Bairstow

-I think it'd be fun to see.

Apparently the wolves and blazers are or were working on a major deal driven toward Timberwolves dumping salary.

I think this season could be a great one. I think the west is tough like always. The east will be more competitive. I think the 2013 & 2014 draft was weak due to young players coming out too early and being injured. I feel some of those players will step up this year. I think this past draft can be a great one. Excited for this season.

I agree with you the draft class is healthy and will be good with a tough west and much much improved east

Predictions :

East

ATL - will not be as good as last season but they are still on hold for East top 4 teams, 1st round exit is possible
BOS - they have the pieces to make the playoffs, with a healthy David Lee & an improve Smart, they are definitely at it
BKN - will be just the same like last season
CHA - they are a much improve team with Batum taking leadership role with AL and Kemba but still not locked in on a playoff spot
CHI - with a healthy roster throughout the year, they are still a top contender in the east and could finally beat the Cavs. Still has room to improve defensively
CLE - Still the eastern favorites but not impossible to beat
DET - this would be the breakout year for their young guys and SVG system will be clearly seen. Yeah, they have a shot in the playoffs
IND - PG needs to be healthy, I beliee they are making the playoffs this season but a 1st round exit is likely
MIA - Bosh and Wade need to stay healthy and they are a top 3 team in the east, has the depth to compete deep into the playoffs
MIL - has a talented roster but still young, they are making the playoffs and that's all
NYK - will not be surprised if they are still a lottery bound team but they have the pieces and veterans to make the playoffs
ORL - they will be better this year but still lottery is their ending
PHI - need to find a PG to help their bigs improve
TOR - another 1st round exit is coming
WAS - will compete for a playoff spot, they are not locked in but they will compete very well to lure KD

West

DAL - looks like a depleted roster but they are not tanking
DEN - lottery team but has young players and a good core to improve
GSW - the defending champs, will have a harder time this season but still has it to defend the crown
HOU - they will be a better team than last season with an improved backcourt, but still they will not be a championship team
LAC - they got what it takes to win it all but they are still not going to do it
LAL - this LAL team will be around 8th-11th in the west, yeah they can make the playoffs. Think Hibbert will be better this year
MIN - young talented roster but needs time to develop together. KG will train these boys
MEM - sure playoff spot. might go for more improvement on the roster as season goes by
NOLA - they need to stay healthy to retain the playoff spot. Davis will be much more improved
OKC - expect the huge improvement record wise with healthier KD and Westbrook, will go all in in KD's last season
PHX - still are borderline playoff team
POR - will just develop young guys, no way they can make the playoffs
SAC - will always be like SAC, yes they have a pretty good roster but chemistry issue could be a problem
SAS - one of the favorites this season and think the oldies will push it to the limit to claim the title once more
UTA - big blow losing Exum but it will give Trey Burke a chance to shine. Can compete for a playoff spot

All International Team vs Team USA

USA

Pg. Curry/Paul/Westbrook
Sg. Harden/Thompson
Sf. Durant/George
Pf. James/Griffin
Ce. Davis/Cousins/Drummond

INT

Pg. Parker/Rubio
Sg. Dragic/Ginobili
Sf. Wiggins/Giannis/Batum
Pf. Duncan/Nowitzki
Ce. Marc/Pau/Vucevic

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Aug 2015 19:35:05
All - USA

C: Cousins/Drummond
PF: Davis/Blake Griffin
SF: LeBron/Paul George
SG: Durant/Harden
PG: Curry/Westbrook

This team has crazy length and athleticism. LeBron can run the offense, Durant can serve as the number one scorer, Curry can spread the floor with his shooting, and Cousins/Davis are monsters in the low post.

All - INT

C: Marc Gasol/Vucevic
PF: Pau Gasol/Tim Duncan
SF: Giannis Atentokounmpo/Nicolas Batum
SG: Andrew Wiggins/Ginobli
PG: Goran Dragic/Tony Parker

This team has length and athleticism on their wing and can run their offense through an elite distributor in Dragic. It looks like Marc Gasol would have to take over as the teams number one scorer although perhaps Wiggins could develop into that role. This team looks tough defensively.

USA vs INT

USA: 123 INT: 100

USA has too much freak athleticism and offense for the INT team to put up a serious fight.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2015 13:34:21
I'll make my team with the $100M cap

Starting 5

Pg. John Wall (16M)
Sg. Klay Thompson (16M)
Sf. Giannis Antetokounmpo (2M)
Pf. Anthony Davis (29M)
Ce. Nikola Vucevic (12.5M)

Bench

Pg. Norris Cole, Steve Blake
Sg. Tony Allen, Marco Bellineli
Sf. Robert Covington
Pf. Taj Gibson, Dontas Motiejunas
Ce. Timofey Mozgov

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2015 03:57:20
Why would you take Wall for $16m over the reigning MVP for $11m? Also, Davis only makes $7m next year before his extension kicks in. And for $100m I'm pretty sure you could get a better team than that.

My starting 5 is.
Steph Curry ($11.3m)
James Harden ($15.5m)
Lebron James ($23m)
Anthony Davis ($7.7m)
Tim Duncan ($5.2m)

With a bench of.
Shaun Livingston ($5.3m)
Bradley Beal ($5.7m)
Giannis Antetokoumpo ($2m)
Nikola Mirotic ($5.5m)
Rudy Gobert ($1.1m)
Harrison Barnes ($3.9m)
Andre Drummond ($3.3m)
Jordan Clarkson ($1m)
Marreese Speights ($3.8m)
Ben McLemore ($3.2m)

The Sixers trade of Jason Thompson to the Warriors for Gerald Wallace proves to me that Hinkie is not serious about competing this year. This is very disappointing. Thompson can actually play and help a team. Wallace cannot.

01 Aug 2015 16:54:06
Sixers will never do good and that is disappointing as an NBA fan

I think next year is the year philly starts to get better. Another top 3 pick, healthy embiid and cap.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2015 22:16:52
They don't have to throw away players to land in the top 3. If they win 30 they land in the 5-8 range. With the picks they have, they can package them and trade up.

The fans want to see improvement. It was understandable for a year or two. But this is too much. With a decent vet PG, they'd be respectable.

Hinkie just can't stop collecting assets. At some point you have to put the talent on the court. That should have been this year.

Agree0 Disagree0

Early Prediction for 2016 olympic USA team.
C: Anthony Davis
PF: LeBron James
SF: Kevin Durant
SG: Stephen Curry
PG: Chris Paul

Reserves:
G: Kyrie Irving
G: Russell Westbrook
G: James Harden
F: Klay Thompson
F: Paul George
F: Blake Griffin
C: DeMarcus Cousins

(Kinda hard to decide between Melo and George)

Durant, Curry, Harden, Irving and Thompson will provide 3pt barrage.
Low post scoring from James, Cousins and Griffin.
Defense from Davis, George and Paul.
Westbrook will be their xfactor.

Carlos Boozer might fit with these teams

NY Knicks (with Lopez anchoring the D, they need some PF scoring behind Melo)

Calderon/Grant
Afflalo/Galloway
Anthony/Williams/Thanasis
Boozer/Porzingis
Lopez/Oquinn/Amundson

PHX Suns (need vet PF, may eventually trade Markieff)

Bledsoe/Goodwin
Knight/Booker
Tucker/Warren
Boozer/Markieff
Chandler/Len

DAL Mavs (how about reuniting him with Deron)

Williams/Barea/Felton
Matthews/Harris/Jenkins
Parsons/Anderson
Nowitzki/Boozer/Villanueva
Pachulia/Dalembert

TOR Raptors (in need of a vet PF who can start)

Lowry/Wright
Derozan/Ross
Carroll/Johnson/Caboclo
Boozer/Patterson/Scola
Valanciunas/Biyombo

I think phoenix is the best fit for boozer. He can come and start

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 07:18:44
Knicks, Rockets and Mavericks are frontrunners for Boozer.
Boozer would be ideal fit for Knicks.
Seraphin to Mavs.

McGee, Davis, Mbah a Moute and Arthur are still available.
Suns, Lakers and Clippers are still lacking of big man depth.

Playoff teams predictions:
1. Cavaliers ("almost" won the finals without the BIG 2)
2. Heat (stack up with good starters and strong bench)
3. Hawks (was number one in the east, minus carroll hurt them well)
4. Bulls (i could put them on number one but it will be depends on their coach)
5. Bucks (much better team with healthy parker and plus Monroe)
6. Raptors (was beaten up in 1st rd of playoffs, carroll could help them)
7. Wizards (pierce is a major loss for the team)
8. Pistons (pacers-no starting big men, celtics-too young, hornets-trying to find their identity or magic-has an upside but doubtful with their coach)
"Welcome to Pistons Basketball"

1. Spurs (better team with aldridge and the great popovich)
2. Warriors (the nba champs and overall number one team last season)
3. Thunder (healthy kd and healthy westy)
4. Clippers (better roster with some playoffs veterans)
5. Rockets (having a true PG plus was 2nd in west)
6. Grizzlies (one of 2 teams who almost beat the warriors in playoffs)
7. Pelicans (very promising player-davis plus a new coach from the warriors)
8. Lakers (kings-cousins vs coach karl, mavs-no good centers, jazz-no allstar player and lack of bench, suns- lacking of power from 2nd unit)
"One more run for Kobe to get another ring"

28 Jul 2015 00:17:23
Lakers 2016 offseason
See if the pick gets retained. Going to need lottery luck. Draft a backup point or center with 2nd round pick
From there lakers will have about 70 mill to work with.
Sign demarr derozan. He's from Compton which is close by la and went to USC and grew up idolizing Kobe. Brings much need athleticism and defense. Two time all star
Resign clarkson brown black
Sign a center etc.whiteside. We need a center badly.
PG Russell/Williams
SG clarkson/brown
SF derozan/young/ brown
PF Randle/bass/nance
C FA/pick//black
Still a young team and can compete within 1-2 years. If we keep our pick the feeling is we would draft skal labbisere from Kentucky. He's a center who can stretch the floor.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2015 02:08:21
I like the magics getting Napier. I think a guy vet like c boozer can help them out. With that roster they could improve about 12 - 15 games

There is now a good chance that Jamal Crawford will get traded, anyone have any ideas?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2015 01:51:59
Ok, no offer, just who do you think the C's should try to trade for this year?

I think Harrison Barnes or Derozan. Both seek like realistic people that could be available. Give up 3 for 1 and sign Holmes to fill the last roster spot.

If Barnes develops a handle or learns to distribute then he could be huge in another year or two.

Derozan can score, high quality, young SG that can play some at SF.

Also, maybe not this year but poss next summer, I think Paul George is going to be demanding a trade! To classy to go public but I bet him and bird discuss it. Maybe even by the trade deadline.

All the top tier centers look untouchable right now so I would focus on the wing. Idk what it would tak but this are the guys I think are worth making calls about.

Who do you think they should go after?

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2015 18:51:18
I would say Barnes. Barnes can have more of an offensive role in Boston and he may be intrigued by that. Next year mock draft have a lot of bigs coming out. And players like al hordford (wants to play the 4), h Whiteside (Miami might not be able to afford him), Roy hibbert, Nene boa may be able to get.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2015 22:49:51
But I doubt the Warriors trade Barnes unless they get an upgrade at SF
