    RHJ slides to PF for them quite often, from what I recall (at least, I remember him having PF eligibility in fantasy). I imagine Carroll may do the same.

    In some ways, they are kinda "deep" at every position but center, but deep in the sense they they have a bunch of serviceable players but no one that really blows you away.

    Yeah, Sean Marks (I went to Cal with him) is trying hard to acquire talent in unconventional ways but so far it's seemingly just a lot of mediocre pieces.

    That Celtics/Nets trade has to be one of the very worst in NBA history. I can't remember a franchise being so handicapped by one deal.

    Interesting you're talkin about an all-time worst trade involving the Celtics while naming a guy named Carroll. It was in 1980 that the Smelts had the 1st overall pick and sent it to GS for #4 and Parish. They took McHale at 4 and GS chose Joe Barry Carroll at 1. Joe Barely Cares. That was the fantasy I think Ainge held onto when he moved down to 3. Tatum appears to be a smooth player and is probably the real deal, but from what I've seen on Celtics boards, a lot of them don't even wanna mention the name Lonzo. Time will tell, but they may have bleeped that one up. Tatum does a lot of his scoring on the low block and baselines area. Head to head against Kyle Kuzma in that tournament, it didn't even appear that he outplayed him. Their averages were very close as are their physiques and heights. Difference is Kuzma was constantly running like a gazelle and hitting .45 from the arc. Seeing those skills from the 27th pick in the draft, it makes me wonder why Ainge was so high on a more conventional low post scorer. It'd be easier to understand 15 yrs ago, but not in 2017. I'm also interested in how Philly will shake out. On paper, the names pop out and I was melancholy at missing out on Simmons (especially when Russell turned out to be a tw..it). However, you put him and Fultz out there with one ball. How's that supposed to work? There have been more complimentary pairings that were strained due to the one ball phenomenon (Kobe and Shaq). Both are ball dominant and/or high usage in order to dominate games. I'm going on raw numbers because neither of them are known for lifting their college mates very far off the ground. Fultz is athletic as hell and a refined scorer, but is he gonna become a short SG, wut? Far as Lakers go, all those young'ns who've been hit and miss, they'd best improve next to Lonzo Ball or it'll be a clear indication that they never will. If Randle comes in all beast mode and still sucks 3 gms out of every 4, he's out. If he can't adapt to run and gun and hasn't learned to drive left, he's out. Mr. Clark's son, too. No more shot attempt whoring without trying on D. Nance has noticeably hit the weight bench and says he's practicing his perimeter shot. Watching Kuzma in that tournament hadto've sent a shiver down his spine. His spot is a little more secure than the other two, but not his minutes. Vlade, beware the Randle. Beware the Clarkson. Beware the moon. Stick to the roads. Pretend they're werewolves and stay away from both. That's my friendly Lakerfan warning to you.

    Ok, that may be more annoying than Hawes' suit. :eek:

    "Things More Annoying than Spencer Hawes" sounds like the world's most difficult game show.

    Per twitter, the Nuggets signed Josh Childress to a contract......that is a blast from the past.

    Kevin Durant is now just permanently going to be an object of ridicule now. Deservedly so.

    1-1 / ✭ 1-1‏@harrisonmc15
    KD has secret accounts that he uses to defend himself and forgot to switch to them when he was replying to this guy I'm actually speechless

    I'd imagine the "Harden rule" will also be applied to players making an attempt at a shot when coming off a screen and a defender trails. So I would hope at least o_O

    OKC trading Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott, and Chicago's 2018 2nd round pick to the Knicks for Melo.


    Steven Adams/Collison
    Carmelo/PPat/
    Paul George/Jerami Grant/
    Andre Roberson/
    Russ/Felton

    Not sure if this brings them any closer to being able to match up with the Warriors but it should at least be fun to watch.

    Sam Presti gave up Victor Oladipo, Domantas Sabonis, Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a second-rounder for Carmelo Anthony and Paul George.

    You know, the Melo situation is mostly on PJax's head, but if Scott Perry is down with trading Melo for a pile of hot garbage, then I'm kinda glad he isn't around anymore?

    the East loses another All-star, you wanted parity...well there will be plenty of bottom of the barrel teams scrapping it out in the Leastern Conference.

    Melo, PG & Russ on the same team? There is only one ball to go around...o_O

    Mr. S£im Citrus That's right, I said it! Staff Member Contributor

    The 2018 Eastern All-Stars could be the most "Err... what?" All-Star team of all time.

    There's a better than good chance that Dwight Howard might be an all-star again simply due to a lack of good name-recognition players.

    I mean, seriously, think about it: you expect to see guys like LeBron, Antetokuonmpo, Love, Irving, Hayward, Walker, DeRozan, Lowry, etc. But, we're also a couple of ill-timed injuries away from potentially seeing: JJ Redick, All-Star... Tim Hardaway, Jr., All-Star.

    Imagine James, Antetokuonmpo and Embiid get voted in as starters, and Love, Whiteside and Porzingis are selected as reserves... and then Embiid and Whiteside get injured, because of course they're gonna get injured... We could be looking at John Henson, NBA All-Star. o_O

    How does OKC make it work with those 3? Not enough shots to keep em happy.

    Knicks had very little leverage in this situation.....just weren't going to get much

    This is true, but for the haul that they got, they might as well have just bought out Melo or stretched him or pretty much anything else.
