Can you guys rate top 15 players in league?
Also ALL-NBA first team?
My guess is :
AD/Giannis/Kawhi/James/Curry

Agree0 Disagree2

07 Dec 2019 08:18:34
Curry?

Lebron Harden Luka Giannis Davis.

08 Dec 2019 00:19:33
Kawhi > Luka, and you need a true point guard. If not Curry, then Lillard or even Luka.

08 Dec 2019 16:44:13
You don’t need a true point guard just a guard.

08 Dec 2019 20:56:57
Kawhi is a top 5 player no doubt but Luka has been playing better this season and if he continues what he’s been doing, he is going to be an all NBA 1st team. And Kawhi has been missing games too. Also, Curry is out for half the season, how is he getting that award?

06 Dec 2019 12:25:56
At this point in their careers who would u rather have Gasol (34) or Adams (26)?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Dec 2019 13:16:21
A few days back i would have said adams.
But heck, Gasol has improved! He doenst score, but he does everything else.

06 Dec 2019 15:59:08
Without a doubt Adams. Gasol might have a few good games here and there, but he's not regaining his old form, that ship has sailed. I don't love Adams at his price tag, but he's a great role player.

06 Dec 2019 19:54:04
Thanks i had a trade idea but i needed to see who yall thought was better 1st. I thought Adams but as a thunder fan i wanted to get an unbiased opinion.

11 Dec 2019 15:56:01
I'm also prefering Adams. How they play is difficult to compare. Gasol can shoot the 3 and has some really good games. But overall I think he regressed a lot. If I'm a contender I would prefer Adams even if it just was for this year. I also think he might sign an extension of about 20 million a year, so you could have your starting Center who's currently a little overpaid for a half decade for an overall reasonable contract.

05 Dec 2019 14:48:15
Okc has oodles of picks. But since they are most likely to get worse before they get better, they need their own picks.

Currently their 2020 pick could convey to Philly. Their 2022 pick could convey to Atl.

Can someone tell me some possible deals to allow Okc to get their picks back?

Thanks. And please. Serious suggestions only.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Dec 2019 15:20:46
I don't see any way that the 2020 pick is conveyed. It's top 20 protected, then turns into two second rounders. So no reason to try to get that one back.

The 2022 pick is top 14 protected, so if they expect to be a lottery team then, again, no reason to worry.

05 Dec 2019 15:49:27
If you really want the 2022 pick back, maybe something built around a Adams for Parsons and the pick? Would be good if OKC wanted to shed Adams' future salary and couldn't find a better offer (not sure they can) .

I wouldn't overpay for it though, since you're trading for a pick that is guaranteed to NOT be a lottery pick.

05 Dec 2019 21:38:40
With the protections on both of those picks they just need to focus on getting other teams picks and adding to their collection. If their picks they don't have are valuable they keep them.

07 Dec 2019 13:35:41
Agree with rlc, if they’ve turned it around that quickly, who cares about one pick.

Agree2 Disagree0

04 Dec 2019 11:40:46
Siakam or FVV COULD be MIP.
Kawhi is higher in MVP.

04 Dec 2019 15:57:17
I really dislike Doncic and Young for MIP. They're both too young and following the expected trajectory of their careers. MIP should be saved for guys that dramatically exceed expectations (Wiggins and Ingram) .

04 Dec 2019 22:08:35
Bmiller i agree on young he is playing like expected, but Doncic is a 2nd year player in the mvp conversation that's not an expexted trajectory for a 2nd year player. I do think someone else should win MIP over Doncic but i don't dislike it for Doncic. But i also dislike it for Young.

05 Dec 2019 09:56:26
Isn’t it basically an unspoken rule that 2nd (and evening 3rd year players to a point) aren’t eligible for it.

05 Dec 2019 13:46:03
For most improved. Graham has made the biggest jump. If hornets sneak into playoffs he deserves it.

05 Dec 2019 15:55:59
Doncic averaged 20/ 7/ 6 in the first half of his rookie year. He averaged 23/ 10/ 7 in the second half. This year, 30/ 10/ 9. He's improved, but he took a huge step in the second half of last year. I think a lot of people after last season saw Doncic as a top 15-20 player in the league. Yeah, he's taken the step into the top tier, but I don't think that's a total shock.

I like to save MIP for total shocking improvement. Ingram and Wiggins are that. Graham is close too, since he was a sparingly used rooking last year (5 ppg, 2.5 assists) and is now putting up 19 and 8.

03 Dec 2019 11:40:17
Miami is a good team winning through teamwork but i can see that they are a 1st round exit playoff team with the current line up. They have some good assets and expiring contracts to trade. What do you think is the best move for them to have a better chance of competing with BOS, MIL, TOR and PHI?

Here are some players they could target but what are they going to give up and what are the other teams would want?

Kevin Love (has the experience and is a fit with Butler)
Blake Griffin (if he performs at a high level he will be huge for the team)
Chris Paul (personally i don't like his fit with Butler though)
JJ Redick (they have Herro but is still young, He can provide experience when it comes to big games)
Draymond Green (i don't think GS is giving him up easily but who knows?)
Danilo Gallinari (perfect 3/4 guy for their team)
Demar Derozan (odd fit with Butler but maybe they can work it out?)
Lamarcus Aldridge (dont know how to gauge him honestly)
Jamaal Crawford (a free agent they could go for)
Andre Iguodala/Jae Crowder

Who else? What do you think?

Agree0 Disagree1

04 Dec 2019 18:44:03
Lowry?

05 Dec 2019 13:47:22
Miami has expiring contracts but other than bam and hero their talent to trade isn’t great. They owe draft picks out until what 2025?

06 Dec 2019 13:17:12
Lowry for Winslow Waiters and Leonard?

01 Dec 2019 16:16:51
So what's going on with Andre Roberson?

Agree1 Disagree1

01 Dec 2019 20:24:11
I have no idea. At the beginning of the season they were saying he should b good to start playing some and then obviously that isn't the case. At this rate i'm wondering if they r just leaving him out until his contract expires or they trade him so the younger guys get more minutes. I have no idea.

04 Dec 2019 11:37:51
The Thunder recently announced that his return still won't be anytime soon. So he is still out a while.

05 Dec 2019 09:58:11
What a weird injury. Hopefully, he can get back at some point and at least be something. It’s been like 2 years at this point hasn’t it?

05 Dec 2019 12:02:31
Close yea. it happened in january 2018 so in a month it would have been 2 years. He just kept haveing more and more set backs in rehab. They never said exactly what the set backs where, but he just keeps getting unlucky i guess.

01 Dec 2019 10:06:47
Shooting Guard vs Small Forward

Which side would you choose??

SG: M. Jordan, K. Bryant, A. Iverson and J. Harden

vs

SF: L. James, L. Bird, K. Durant and J. Irving

Agree0 Disagree1

02 Dec 2019 02:57:45
Only one side has players with 0 rings.

02 Dec 2019 07:25:41
Shooting Guards.

03 Dec 2019 04:19:13
Shooting Guards.

30 Nov 2019 03:59:40
Which last year lottery team are you most impressed with and surprised by this year?

I would say the Hornets. They lost Kemba signed Rozier and they are still playing like a potential 7 or 8 seed in the East.

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Nov 2019 08:11:36
Mavs. Doncic is playing at an MVP and top 5/ 10 player level. They’re winning w Porzingis being rusty still and not his all star level form. When he gets going this team can be much better.

30 Nov 2019 19:57:09
Minnesota. I expected them to face a full rebuild this year. Towns has taken another step. Wiggins might be the MIP. They look good.

30 Nov 2019 23:51:03
Kings. With no Bagley or Fox, they moved into a tie for 8th by beating Denver today.

01 Dec 2019 04:18:20
Lakers there winning the games there supposed too and getting better together. They turned there lottery team into One the Best team in league in first 19 games. Even though they have best record don't clearly mean theRe best team in league is y I said one the best teams.
