I challenge someone to make a believable Monta Ellis trade. I am convinced that it is impossible

Call me crazy but part of me kinda wishes that my Thunder would've traded James Harden for Klay Thompson instead of Jeremy Lamb

jbbaby


Was that an option?

kn1ck3rb0ck3r


That was one of them and the other one was Bradley Beal and the Wizards 2013 1st round pick.

jbbaby


They had the choice between Kevin Martin, Bradley Beal, & Klay Thompson? and they chose Kevin Martin??

kn1ck3rb0ck3r


Maybe during that period, they Kevin Martin will help them more because he is a veteran then it turned to be a disaster

Wizards should have been
Wall
Harden
Pierce
Nene
Gortat

Warriros should have been
Curry
Harden
Barnes
Lee
Bogut

USA


Why would we call you crazy? They would obviously do that now

Warriorsalltheway


U have to understand that at the time Beal and Lamb were draft picks that hadn't played yet. they figured their choices were Beal and 1 future 1st. or Lamb, Kevin Martin, and 3 future 1sts (Adams, McGary, and Dallas 2016 1st)

I may be in the minority, but as an OKC fan, I feel like it's time to explore Reggie Jackson trades. He holds big value now and could fetch a few complimentary peices. Any potential trades worth looking at?

ChurchPugh


I agree with this

espn33


I agree with this as an OKC fan. Also thought we should've traded Jeremy Lamb in the offseason while he still had value. I don't think he has any now

Who has the highest trade value in the NBA now?

espn33


Anthony Davis by far

PG. MCW > pg. Harrison
SG. Wroten < sg. Harrison
sf. LMAM < sf. Pythress
pf. Noel > pf. cauley-stein
c. sims < c. Towns Jr.

Bench < Bench

Kentucky wins

kn1ck3rb0ck3r


Wroten is way better no doubt

NBA


If all of the 76ers were in the 2015 NBA draft the only players that would go in the 1st round is MCW, Noel, and Wroten towards the end. MCW is the best player out of both teams but Kentucky is better overall

jbbaby


Lmao Sixers would kill Kentucky. They have 15 NBA players. Kentucky has maybe 6

Warriorsalltheway


Sixers do not have 15 NBA players. 3/4s of that team have no business being in the NBA.

jbbaby


Even if they aren't good NBA players at least they are NBA players unlike Kentucky. Read up on experts articles on this, they all agree philly would kill Kentucky

Warriorsalltheway



 

 

23 Nov 2014 15:55:45
Most improved player candidates so far

Jimmy Butler
Reggie Jackson
Tony Wroten
Tobias Harris
Evan Fournier

jbbaby


Greak Freak
Darren Collison
Klay Thompson

Philly 76ers vs Kentucky Wildcats

Who wins?

jbbaby


Sixers easily

Warriorsalltheway


76ers will rout that team and Bledsoe sucks on what he's said

espn33


They should actually scrimmage against eachother

kn1ck3rb0ck3r


Guards-76ers
Forwards-Kentucky
Center-76ers
Bench-Kentucky

Final analysis-76ers win 97-88
MCW, Wroten, and Noel go off

Hmmm. The newest Big 3 cannot win by their own. 5-6. They need DEFENSE!

I don't see this happening due to the number of players and that many are big(er)

Bos/Det/GS/NY

Bos sends: Rondo, Green, Bass
Bos gets: Jennings, Stats, Barnes, THJ

This is nuke the Celtics and go full rebuild with a young nucleous and with Stats contract ending they will have money to extend their core. They also have the assets to trafe up in the draft and get a future elite center

Jennings/THJ/Barnes/Sully/Olynik

Det sends: Jennings/smith/Anthony
det gets: Iggy/Calderon/Shumpert

The log jam for det has not gone well so by dealing smith and Jennings they get a pass first PG as well as an upgrade at the 2/3. Det can focus on featuring Monroe/Andre down low where SVG can have a 5 as good as Howard in a year

Calderon/Shumpert/Iggy/Monroe/Drummond

GS sends: Barnes,Lee,Iggy
GS gets: Smith Green Bass.

GS lacks depth and trade to get a better front court and have money to extend green after this year.

curry/Thompson/(green/ or Jeff green) Smith/ Bogut

NY sends: Stats, THJ, Calderon/Shumpert
NY gets: Rondo, Lee, Anthony

Although the NY gives up youth, they need to act now so Melo will still be effective. They take a risk on Rondo, but he may resign since the zen master calling the shots.

Rondo/Smith/Melo/Lee/ upgrade needed

succeed and proceed


Terrible for GS

Top 25 Untradeable Players

1. ANTHONY DAVIS- Best big in NBA. Still inked In for years
2. STEPHEN CURRY- Best Value in the NBA for a non rookie contract
3. KEVIN DURANT- Talent and age would make him 1st but an upcoming free agency raises questions
4. LEBRON JAMES- Best player in the NBA has an upcoming free agency and is getting older
5. CHRIS PAUL- Best PG in the game. Still inked in for a few years
6. JAMES HARDEN- Franchise player and young. Still plenty of years on his deal
7. BLAKE GRIFFIN- Dominant Big still inked in long term
8. DWIGHT HOWARD- Still the best center in the NBA. Rockets will have him for next 3 years
9. KLAY THOMPSON- Superstar in the making. Just signed long term.
10. DERRICK ROSE- Not in a good way. Injuries and recent character issues will make it impossible to trade out of the 60+ million that he's guarenteed
11. JOHN WALL- A young elite PG that is inked long term
12. LEMARCUS ALDRIDGE- Would be higher but an upcoming free agency could scare Portland
13. DEMARCUS COUSINS- Probably the future best center of NBA that the Kings can have for a very long time but still has character issues
14. PAUL GEORGE- a mixture of teams being afraid to commit to his contract due to his injury and him being the only hope Indiana has for the future make him pretty untradeable
15. DAMIEN LILLIARD- One of the best rookie contract values in the league. A slow start in 2014 however
16. JOAKIM NOAH- The heart and soul of the Bulls is unlikely to be traded any time soon. However he does only have 2 years left on deal.
17. CHRIS BOSH- He has been playing good but at his age I don't think any team would want to touch the largest contract in the NBA
18. RUSSEL WESTBROOK- Skillwise he should be way higher but injuries and great play from back up Reggie Jackson could make him available for a strong enough package
19 BRADLEY BEAL- a great value on a rookie contract. but a recent injury. He can probably be had if someone wants him bad enough.
20. TONY PARKER- 4 long years left on his contract. getting older now. will probably lose starting position by end of his contract
21. DIRK NOWITSKI- Great loyalty between him and Cuban. a pay cut. and 3 years left on an older players contract make him unlikely to be traded but if a contender was willing to trade young assets for him Cuban has to remember this is a business.
22. WIGGINS/PARKER- even though one of them has been traded already it is very unlikely that either one of their rebuilding teams will look to deal them in the next couple years.
23. CARMELO ANTHONY- Still a superstar with a large contract but how long will he be able to handle losing before he demands a trade?
24. DEMAR DEROZAN- a young star with 3 years left all under $10 Million per
25. CHANNING FRYE- what a horrible signing. no one will want those 4 years

jbbaby


I actually agree with this

Warriorsalltheway


Yeah at that time they could've probably traded Shannon Brown for a late 1st round pick and would have Klay Thompson right now lol.

jbbaby



 

 

18 Nov 2014 16:27:55
Klay Thompson told the lakers that he would've left college early in 2010 if they would've traded anywhere into the 1st round, even pick 30, and agreed to draft him. They declined

jbbaby


#fail .

17 Nov 2014 15:15:34
Best Decisions of 2014 off season
1. GSW - by not trading Klay Thompson to get Kevin Love
2. LeBron James - going back to Cleveland
3. Pau Gasol - by turning down the Lakers and signing to Chicago
4. MIN - by trading Kevin Love earlier and acquiring young talents
5. DAL - getting T. Chander back and rebuild the team with solid pieces


Worst Decisions
1. Carmelo Anthony - staying in NYK
2. LAL - getting Jeremy Lin instead of Omer Asik from the Rockets
3. Lance Stephenson - turning down the Pacers



- anymore ideas?

Reggie Jackson averaging 24, 4, and 8 as a starter

And remember all the times u told me that him to the Magic for Aaron Afflalo was ripping off the Magic. Yall are experts tho

jbbaby


But elfrid payton will be better

kn1ck3rb0ck3r


Not by much if at all. Magic could've got Jackson and used that pick on another piece

jbbaby


Well i'm glad afflalo got out of there at least

Cuban suggested that okc thunder should tank this season.
It might be a good idea. But sorry, tanking is just for the losers!

Okc will be in the playoff and will kick mavs butt!

I'm an OKC fan and would love for them to tank ONLY IF Durant and Westbrook are OK with it

11 Nov 2014 20:05:18
had the knicks kept some players instead of trading them and never traded for carmelo, their line up could have been.

pg. jamal crawford/nate robinson
sg. shumpert/thj/lavine (draft pick traded to nuggets)
sf. ariza/gallonari/chandler
pf. randolph/lee/frye
c. chandler/mozgov

much better than.

pg. calderon
sg. smith
sf. carmelo
pf. stat
c. dalembert

Okay. Every single Trade I've posted with Monta Ellis has been like 2 believables and 40 unbelievables. I've traded him for stars or for expiring contracts or picks and young players with potential. what am I doing wrong? Every single Monta Ellis trade I can't for the life of me tell if I have undervalued or overvalued him.what in the heck is Monta Ellis worth?!?!?!?!

jbbaby


Why would the mavs trade him? he's good on their team, has good chemistry with dirk and wants to stay a mav.

Curry is only better at shooting

Thank you!

Lol whatever you guys say. But how are the thunder doing this season Jbabby? 3-0 like the warriors?

Warriorsalltheway


We are all injured. I would give you a little more credit than to bring that up. Lose Curry, Thompson, Igoudala, and Barnes and tell me if u would still be 3-0. you wouldn't even be 1-2 like we are

Thunder don't have KD and Westbrook you can't compare their records
