HUGE TRADE

Mavs get Prozingis, Hardaway Jnr, Lee & NYK get Jordan, Matthews, Smith Jnr and a 1st round pick

Even with Porzingis out the Mavs won this.
Hardaway is a decent player and when Porzingis is fit, him and Luka are gonna be amazing to watch.

Shams reporting that Porzingis is going to accept a qualifying offer so he can become an unrestricted free agent. This is madness!

Knicks obviously get torched in the deal, all it is is a punt that they can attract 2 superstars next year such as Kyrie and KD.

If they get those 2 guys then its obviously a huge win as it like trading Porzingis for those 2 guys.

I would have thought they could have got expiring contracts + better assets but i guess the ACL is a concerning factor. Dennis Smith Jnr might be an ok player i just didnt like him with luka.

Huge wins for the Mavs, getting rid of Dennis Smith Jnr is almost a positive thing and Porinzigis learning under Dirk will be great to see. If he can get healthy you have 2 lethal 3 point shooters, playing great euro ball.

Mavericks certainly one of m favorite teams now.

Boban, Harris and Mike Scott for Shamet, Chandler, Muscala, the Heat first in 2021, Sixers first in 2020 and whatever seconds Detroit owe Philly. I'm conflicted. I'm sad we lost Shamet but so happy we have Boban

Philly wise to keep Bobi & Tobi together, could be the difference between Harris staying or leaving at EOS.

I love the move, Shamet was good but the time is now.

If we lose Butler then Simmons Harris Embiid is more then enough to compete for years to come. With Simmons inability to shoot paring him with one of the best 3 point shooters in the NBA is a great combo.

I also think he is a much better fit then butler perosonality and game wise as he is the perfect 3rd option (or in this case 4th).

If they can keep the 4 then as they grow i see them as the team to challenge the warriors.

Thats a great trade for 76ers, reduces their depth, but puts them as instant contenders and favourites for Eastern Conference title.  That starting 5 is beyond delicious, Simmons, Redick, Butler, Tobias and Embiid.  Holy hell, I hope they can gel and realise the damage they can do if they play unselfish basketball.

Barnes trade was brutal, traded while he's on court.  :o

Apparently Barnes was warned he was involved in trade talks, though you'd think they could wait on pulling the trigger at least until he walked off the court... brutal.

Definitely not good timing to announce the trade while he is on the bench but he does make the Kings stronger along with Alec Burks

Fox / Yogi / Mason
Hield / Bogdanovic
Barnes / Burks
Bjelica / Giles
WCS / Bagley / Koufos

The top 4 in the east are going to give the Warriors a run for their money if they don't beat each other up first.

Raps added Gasol, Bucks added Mirotic, 76ers added Tobias and Ennis and Boston are just good.

What's this we? Last I checked the Cavs were 11-44 with the third worst record in the league...

We just beat the Nuggets comfortably without looking spectacular. They didn't have Harris, Thomas, Porter Jr. and Millsap, but it was convincing for a bunch of guys that mostly hadn't played together before and Embiid not being able to keep anything down for 48 hours with a stomach bug.

Watching them tonight, the starting 5 is legit scary, Harris just gives them something they didn't have. I'd love to see them play the Raptors again in Toronto, but they don't play again until playoffs unfortunately.

OKC Rockets has been a good game so far. Rockets by 22 at 1/2 time and 26 early in the third, but now there's 2 mins left in the 3rd and the margin is only 6

EDIT: And it's tied at 3/4 time

I follow players not teams.

Lebron Simmons Embiid Davis are my guys.

I always dosliked the cavs organisation especially dan gilbert. Im very happy they are falling apart. I really hope they dont get zion, i have been watching zion for years.

TBH i reckon LBJ is a cancer to any team that he goes to.
Yes Gilbert is a douchebag but LBJ is the worst... he strips Teams of any decent future players for old washed up scrubs to get short term success, the 2nd time LBJ came to the cavs the team wasn't great but it was OK, then he came and pretty much stripped it bare of any decent future players and brang in overpaid bums just to win the east... now the Lakers have a lot of very talented young players and they (LBJ & magic) were willing to let go of most of them for AD, dont get me wrong AD is a monster, and i honestly believe that the NOP became too greedy and made a huge mistake in not taking the deal (Ingram/Kuzma/Ball/Hart/Zubac and 2 x 1st Rnd Picks) but c'mon that would've destroyed the Lakers in the long run... LBJ has 4 years max left to play and in those times he'll still be going up against the GSW, and after that will AD stay?? he'll probably leave, leaving Lakers in a sh*t position, i dont give a sh*t about the Lakers i just feel that everybody will forget about the scumbag side of LBJ when talking about his legacy.

phew... rant over.


PS: The Clippers and Kings are slowly looking to be an awesome future teams, teams with no stars and all decently young and all playing pretty well and the team has decnet Cap space. If Clippers can get Kahwi (maybe not now with the trades raptors done) can you imagine the potential.

IMO the more shower Lebron pulls, the further away he gets from GOAT talks, so I'm happy for him to keep doing what he's doing.  #legacyselfdestruction

Did everyone cash out their Harden MVP bets? Because I think Giannis will win it from here...
