Thunder can most likely weather the storm while KD recovers. HOWEVER, they have the ammunition and now the reason to pull a deal. They have a couple substantial expiring deals, plenty of young talent, talented players overseas, and picks. The obvious target is a SF, but what if they looked to upgrade C as well? Any options? Opinions?


Make a deal with Denver to get Hickson and either Brewer or Wilson Chandler

Preseason Playoff Predictions

1. Bulls

8. Rockets


Don't understand why everyone has the Bulls winning the east. They have no wings. Rose will not be an mvp candidate.


Bulls are stacked with multi dimensional big men (noah,gasol,gibson,mirotic) they have shooters (mcdermott & dunleavy) they have athleticism (butler & snell) they have guard depth with experience (hinrich & brooks) but the fate of this team rest on Rose. If he can return to old form, I can't see anyone in the east that can beat them. The spurs are the real challenge.


I have the bulls over the cavs because the Bulls have chemistry and defense, while the cavs have neither of those yet (new team, and lebron is the only defender in the starting lineup. )


I think the Wizards have a better team than the Bulls


^maybe until beal got hurt.

My 4 guys I think may be traded by the trade deadline:

1. Rajon Rondo - The Celtics are rebuilding and may look to add a 1st round pick and another building piece. I wouldn't expect much in return because of his 1 year deal and I only see a team like Dallas, Houston, New York, Los Angeles in that order going for him. It's hard to say the value to get him because some teams like Sacremento, Atlanta, Charlotte, and Detroit would be stuck for just a rental. If Boston is willing to take Nash, Hill, and possibly a second Lakers may get a deal done or Wright, Felton, Crowder, and maybe a 1st (possibly best deal). My prediction is Dallas at the deadline and if not then he signs in Houston over the summer.

Other notable teams: Mavs, Lakers, Knicks, and Heat

2. David Lee - With Warriors looking to sign Klay Thompson long term it's going to be important to shed some salary as he will ask max money. I can see a few expiring contracts and possibly a late 1st going to the Warriors. A team I can see is Toronto sending Amir Johnson and Landry Fields/Chuck Hayes. The Warriors would have Johnson, Green, and Speights at the power forward position. Draymond Green will also be a FA so freeing up money is definatley a must if you want him back as well. Another trade could be for Kevin Garnett and Andrei Kirelenko. Nets may be looking for a younger big to play with Lopez and make a playoff run in a weak eastern division. Give Garnett and Kirenko a final run at a chip? KG does have a no trade clause though so I'm not sure. My Prediction is David Lee to Toronto by the deadline.

Other notable teams: Nets, Suns, and Knicks

3. David West - Pacers won't be a challenger this season, so while PG gets healthy I say bring in new pieces. Go into the lottery drafting a point or power. A trade I like for both teams is Andreai Bargarni, Iman shumpert, and a 2nd for West. Shumpert fits perfect and makes sense going forward. West brings that low post scorer with veteran experience for the Knicks who run the triangle. Another trade I can see is to the Thunder for Kendrick Perkins and Reggie Jackson. Pacers also save money next season to go after a possible Rajon Rondo or go young with just signing Reggie Jackson . My prediction is David West will be a New York Knick by the deadline.

Other notable teams: Raptors, Rockets, and Thunder

4. Irsan Illysova - The Bucks are looking to be the team with the brightest future. I think they're satisfied with a Henson-Sanders front court making Irsan expendable. In the past Irsan has been in many trade talks. A team who in my opinion fits his play is the OKC Thunder. The Thunder can offer Kendrick Perkins, Jeremy Lamb, and a pick for Illysova. Sova brings excellent shooting you can put around Kd and RW. He can come off the bench but play starter minutes alongside Ibaka. He's also a decent rebounder for his style of play. He only makes the Thunder more deadly and fits perfect. My prediction is Irsan Illysova will be an OKC Thunder by the deadline.

Other notable teams: Rockets, Spurs, Kings, and Knicks

Other guys I can see being traded: Eric Gordon, Jeff Green, Josh Smith, and Kevin Martin.


Warriors won't dump Lee for expirings, they aren't going to dump him at all unless if they get a better player in return


Well if they want to free up cap to resign Thompson and Green they might have to trade Lee but they could probably get a better offer than up there

Yep exactly celtics 4 life

Pacers are no dropping that far. Knicks Pacers and Hawks will battle for that 8th spot.


Who is going to score on the pacers?



Celtics 4 life

Interesting bogut for most improved player. Never thought of that but it's a real possibility because he'll be much more used in the offense. He was very agressive in last nights preseason game

7. Griffin
8. Love
9. George
10. Dwight


Nevermind I'd go

Westy (or a healthy DRose)


Westbrook is so much better than curry.


Nah knickerbocker he's just a decent shooter and not that good of a passer while curry is the best shooter and a great passer


^Warriorsalltheway its not just about shooting and passing, Westbrook can do better than Curry. Let's say defense, rebound, etc. Curry is terrific but Westy is a beast


There isn't one gm in the league that would take curry over westbrook. the thunder wouldn't trade westbrook for curry.


And there's no way the warriors would trade curry for Westbrook. It would actually make sense for the thunder to trade westy for curry because curry would pass a lot more than Westbrook, and stretch the floor more. But the Warriors wouldn't do that


Westbrook is a freak, you can't teach that stuff. Westbrook> Curry all day.


Most analysts agree Steph is better than Westbrook but I'm done with this argument we obviously have different opinions knickerbocker


Agreed to each their own


Warriors will never win a championship if their main way of offense is the three pointer. No team can stay hot from three the whole playoffs

Celtics 4 life

If Bogut is healthy yes they can. They are more than just a shooting team they have iggy and lee slashing and Bogut putting back missed shots. And they will actually have ball movement this year with a new coach, plus a much improved bench. @celtics4life And I have never seen a game where both Steph and Klay are cold at the same time


Westbrook-better defender, more athletic

Curry-better shooter and passer

They're even


I've seen multiple games where they both have been cold. One was against the Suns and another was against the kings I'm pretty sure

Celtics 4 life

Wow 2/82 games. They have plenty of other options (especially lee whos a great scorer


Either way they are still not going to beat the thunder, spurs, or clippers in the playoffs

Celtics 4 life

Lol they would've beat the clippers easily with bogut healthy, but he was out the whole series and they still took them to the final seconds of game 7. Every thunder game was close last year too


I agree Warriors > Clippers; but Thunder > Warriors & Spurs > Warriors.


Yeah I can see that knickerbocker the warriors and thunder always play each other closely but they have trouble beating the Spurs. And @celtics4life go to bleacher report and search franchise players at each position. See what the experts have to say about if a team could only pick one player, who would they pick at that position


Bleacherreports isn't experts, anyone can write on bleacherreport. Just look at the stats, Westbrook has Curry beat in Rebounding, Assists, Steals, Blocks. He trails Curry in ppg by only fractions of a point, mostly because he shares the ball with the leading scoring in the NBA (durant). Westbrook is better in the playoffs and is more successful is the playoffs. Obviously Curry is a better shooter, but there is a lot more to this game than shooting. I think Curry is an superstar, but Westbrook is borderline elite.


^ 100% correct

Celtics 4 life

First off, if you play next to Kevin Durant you immediately have an advantage. Because of KD westy never gets doubled, unlike Steph. Also, I don't feel like looking up stats but I'd be surprised if westy had more assists, and if he did that was because he plays next to Durant. But again, this is all opinionated


WESTBROOK Career Averages

ppg: 19.9
assist: 6.9*
rebounds: 4.8*
steals: 1.6*
FG%: 43%

CURRY Career Averages

ppg: 20.3*
assist: 6.7
rebounds: 4.1
steals: 1.6
FG%: 44%*


I'm talking about last year Steph had 24+ points 8. 5 assists


2013-2014 Stats


ppg: 21.8
assist: 6.9
steals: 1.9
rebounds: 5.7
FG%: 44%


ppg: 24.0
assist: 8.5
steals: 1.6
FG%: 47%


See exactly.

Pts- curry
Ast- curry


Yea that was last season with westbrook coming off an injury. let's compare after this season


Ok deal knickerbocker

Cant believe the knicks took Jordan Hill. i'd prefer teague over rubio


30 Sep 2014 20:47:38
I'd go Curry over Harden.
Also don't see why Lawson would be worse than Holiday.
But it's all close and subjective




28 Sep 2014 16:09:20
Lakers have to hope that james harden or dwight howard get hurt so they can have a better pick and trade hill for perkins and a 1st and go from there




27 Sep 2014 23:16:52
I wish the NBA would add 2 teams to the West (Las Vegas and Seattle) then move Memphis and New Orleans to the East.


Seattle would have to be the supersonics, what would the Las Vegas team be?

Hi guys,

I'm the commish of the second year Yahoo Fantasy Basketball keeper league "One Team One Line" but a few managers can't return because of their jobs and stuff, so I am looking for replacement owners and there are some very good teams left.
League settings:
20 teams
roster: PG, SG, SF, PF, C, Util
scoring categories: FG%, FT%, 3PTM, PTS, REB, AST, STL, BLK, TO, DD.
Draft time: Sunday, October 12th, 12 PM(noon) ET

You would overtake an existing team, and you can keep either 0,1 or 2 players.
Keeper rules are:
Keep 0 players, retain all your picks.
Keep 1 player, you lose your 1st rd pick this year.
Keep 2 players, you lose your 1st and 2nd rd pick this year.

The sooner you message me, the more teams you have to choose from.

Send an e-mail to if you're interested or answer to this post.

Btw: of course you have to be at the draft and active during the season.

If you got any questions, just ask, looking forward to you all!

P.S.: Thanks to for making this possible.


Sorry man, too busy to keep up with fantasy basketball, tried and failed before. i'll stick to fantasy football. good luck though.

This was "kn1ck3rb0ck3rs" idea:


GS trades David Lee and Harrison Barnes.
TOR trades Jonas Valancunias and Terrence Ross.

Stephen Curry/Shuan Livingston
Klay Thompson/Brandon Rush/Leandro Barbosa
Andre Iguodala/Terrence Ross
Draymond Green/Mareese Speights
Andrew Bogut/Jonas Valancunias/Festus Ezeli

Love it


Aw thanks!


Great idea, but the salaries don't match.


How can u love an idea that result in a starting front court of Draymond Green and Andrew Bogut. that would be the worst starting PF/C combo in the NBA besides maybe Plumlee/Morris


What are you talking about jbabby? Bogut and green would easily be top 10 in +/- in the NBA. They are both elite defenders and very good passers. And green can stretch the floor. Way better than most NBA teams. When Bogut was a big part of the offense in Milwaukee he made all NBA 3rd team. He'll get more touches this year with the new offense too. And I guess you haven't paid attention to the league last year if you think Green (or Bogut) is bad.

not bad


If Derrick Rose is healthy he is the second best point guard then it's Westbrook. If Kobe is healthy I would have him above wade

Lol jbabby wiggins an elite SF? Wow. And how is Ellis the 2nd best SG?


And Steph is top 3 PG easy. Paul, Steph, and a healthy Rose are top 3. Then Westbrook at #4. And #5 is up for grabs between Lillard, Wall, and Irving. Steph, Paul, and Rose are all completely different players, but Steph is better than westy (scoring and passing), and definitely better than Irving, Lillard and Wall. Wall is the only good defender in that group but can't shoot, and Lillard/Irving just aren't as good offensively as him


Warriorsalltheway your being biased curry is not a top 3 pg maybe top 6

Celtics 4 life

@celtics for life you probably think Rondo is a top 3 PG. Lol He's lucky if he makes the top 10. And the only PGs I'll even let you make a case for competing with curry and Paul are DRose (if healthy he's up there), and Westbrook. No one else has a chance. Curry is the best offensive PG in the NBA and Lillard, and irving can't play defense so they're not better and wall/rondo can't shoot. Parker just simply isn't as good. Therefore Steph is a top 3 PG.


Curry is terrible at defense first of all, second any team would rather have wall, lilliard, Westbrook, rose, Paul, or Irving if they were to start a team

Celtics 4 life

Celtics for life how would you rather have irving/Lillard over Steph? Neither can play defense either and aren't as good at scoring or passing as Steph. And Rose is too injured for anyone to risk taking him over curry. Wall also isn't nearly as good as Steph. Westbrook also gets injured a lot, and is a ball hog and not as good offensively. I can understand Paul though. While he's definitely not the scorer Steph is, his defense and passing are great


And your saying Steph doesn't get hurt? He's been injury prone his whole career. Also Curry can't play defense at all.

Celtics 4 life

Lol celtics4life Lillard/irving don't play defense either and Steph was healthy pretty much the whole year last year and will have less minutes this year too with livingston backing him up


Your acting like curry has never been hurt when this has been his frost year healthy.

Celtics 4 life

I'm just saying as far as skill goes I think he is a top 3 PG, but it's hard to compare him to DRose because he's been out for so long, and you can't count his injury history against him seeing how Paul missed a lot of last season, Westbrook missed a lot of last season and the playoffs the year before, and wall has had his share of injuries since entering the league
