Unless Melo takes a giant paycut, that's not feasible.

It's May 20, not April 20.

The Jazz put on an abomination of a fourth quarter effort.

It's a weird comparison because Faried's a pretty brutal defensive player.

2014-15 is basically a development year.

We don't have the cap space to give both Rondo and Love max or even near-max contracts.

Gordon will probably be primarily a four no matter who ends up as the coach.

Tom's comments about his strength issues are really interesting.

Napier is 22 and a senior. You don't get extra props for beating up on kids who are two to three years younger than you.

If the Lakers look for a Mike D'Antoni replacement, John Calipari should not be considered an upgrade

That you think that Frye, Robinson, Jack, Ellis, or Gortat had more impact than Bogut on their respective teams is hilarious.
Commented on Settle, Lakers fans: NBA Draft's top four talents are seldomly drafted in the top four on Apr 8 2014, 12:03p
There's only two players in that entire draft who are better than him or at the very least, had better careers than him.

Lakers continue season of pain and injuries, lose to Clippers, 120-97

We'd be lucky to buy late second round picks, let alone late firsts nowadays.

They all fit in MDA's system, so I'm not really seeing the issue.

I'd try him at the three, use lots of lineups of Love at the five.

He's not in my top eight and as noted above, might not be entering the draft period.

As much as I hate that they didn't draft Thomas since I wrote glowingly on him that year, so did the rest of the league.

DX says he's 6'9''.

I'm not a fan of Ennis. Doesn't have elite tools besides from the intangibles/competitiveness factor that consistently gets drooled over.

Ryan Kelly is not a compelling reason to not take Randle/Gordon.

Was speaking in generalities w/r/t harping about Nash playing his tenth game, not at you specifically.

Scott is right up the alley of the Skiles type of coach that burn out locker rooms by being incorrigible hardasses.

We'd obviously do more with him, but imagine Wiggins in all of the off ball stuff we run for Wes.

I don't follow this logic.

Madsen has barely any coaching experience and Rambis was one of the worst HCs in the league with Minny.
