Tristan Thompson Iman Shumpert 2018 Brooklyn 1st Collin Sexton 7:40 pm Mon Feb 11 EDTRemoved

This was the most talked about trade package I have ever seen on reddit. 2

Clueless about Zion5:43 pm Fri Feb 22 EDTRemoved

He is an outstanding athlete. Probably one of the two or three greatest athletes I have ever seen. He knows how to use his athleticism as well. He has a feel for the game. He is an amazing finisher and uses the glass extremely well which make me think tha 6

I cant see a way he averages less than like 13/6/2 on 50%+ shooting. 0

Clueless about Zion5:43 pm Fri Feb 22 EDTRemoved

Fair enough, although I dont consider injured rookies as busts. For example, I would never call Oden a bust. Oden was a baller. He was just unlucky. 0

Which team has the best young core in the league 7:07 pm Sat Mar 2 EDTRemoved

The Mavs because they have the best young player in the league. 1

Serious If the Los Angeles Lakers did consider trading LeBron James what package would make the Lakers pull the trigger 5:57 pm Sun Mar 10 EDTRemoved

Whoever suggests that any team wouldnt throw the sink is wrong in my opinion. Even if you somehow think James will regress (I think he will be back to his usual self next season) then you are guaranteed a top 10-15ish player for the next 3 years. You 100% 3

Serious If the Los Angeles Lakers did consider trading LeBron James what package would make the Lakers pull the trigger 5:57 pm Sun Mar 10 EDTRemoved

What the actual fuck? You bet they would. James + Embiid + Redick + Harris is the best core in the league right away. 4

Serious If the Los Angeles Lakers did consider trading LeBron James what package would make the Lakers pull the trigger 5:57 pm Sun Mar 10 EDTRemoved

Both Embiid and Simmons are injury prone because of their injury history. Theres no guarantee one of them wont ask for a trade. Kobe asked, Shaq asked, Kyrie asked. Theres no guarantee this team will ever become better than what they re now. You argued a 1

The Lakers will target Kyrie Irving Klay Thompson Kawhi Leonard Kevin Durant Jimmy Butler Anthony Davis and Demarcus Cousins this offseason12:09 am Fri Mar 15 EDTRemoved

I think they will only get Kyrie. LeBron will play a vital role recruiting him (he may also take him under Klutch representation). 1

If Steph or LeBron were in the exact same situation as Harden is right now would it be even a debate who is mvp 5:05 pm Wed Apr 3 EDTRemoved

How are the warriors able to pay Curry Klay Dray KD Cousins all at the same time 8:34 am Mon Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Curry is already locked up until the summer of 2022. Thompson is a free agent this summer. The Warriors have his bird rights and can offer him a max deal. Durant is a free agent this summer. The Warriors have his bird rights and can offer him a max deal 1

If the Raptors win a ring this year with Kawhi as Finals MVP do they retire his number 9:02 pm Fri Apr 19 EDTRemoved

Absolutely. He did the greatest thing he could do for your team, his number belongs in the rafters even if he leaves. 1

Who do yall have as the ideal Lakers head coach 9:07 pm Mon Apr 22 EDTRemoved

Ettore Messina. His first job in the USA was as a consultant to the Lakers. LeBron respects him a lot. He is a brilliant basketball mind. 1

Add Damian Lillard to the Raptors moving lowry to the bench how far do they go 3:52 pm Wed Apr 24 EDTRemoved

They win it all. At this point they will have a closing lineup of Lowry (2019 allstar), Lillard (2019 1st or 2nd team All-NBA), Leonard (2019 2nd or 3rd team All-NBA), Siakam (2019 allstar snub) and Gasol (allstar as recently as 2017, still allstar calib 1

Has a case for being the best, theres nobody on his right mind that would rank him lower than 5. 1

Where does Leonard on the Raptors rank amongst the leagues best 8:58 pm Tue May 7 EDTRemoved

Cases can be made for James, Durant, Giannis, Harden and Curry. I think he is the 3rd best but I wouldnt consider someone calling him the 6th best crazy. 5

Is Kyle Lowry a top 10 PG in the league 10:13 pm Tue May 7 EDTRemoved

1 Curry, 2 Lillard, 3 Westbrook, 4 Irving, 5 Walker, 6 Paul and 7 Conley are the only ones I am 100% sure are better than him. Hes fighting for 8th alongside Simmons, Bledsoe, Dragic and maybe Young. 1

Anyone peep that the Warriors are 6-4 in the playoffs so far6:43 pm Wed May 8 EDTRemoved

If they are at .500 when the final round starts it means that they lost a series. You cant be at .500 otherwise. 2

Anyone peep that the Warriors are 6-4 in the playoffs so far6:43 pm Wed May 8 EDTRemoved

The Warriors are not the 2017 Warriors anymore. They are beatable. They went 58-24 in the 2018 regular season while going 16-5 in the 2018 playoffs. They went 57-25 in the 2019 regular season and are currently 6-4 in the 2019 playoffs. 1

Trade LeBron Jeanie6:28 pm Wed May 8 EDTRemoved

PAT PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN! 2

Trade LeBron Jeanie6:28 pm Wed May 8 EDTRemoved

Players have to be in the NBA 8 years and 4 years with their current team to get a no trade clause unless they are on certain matched, one year or qualifying deal contracts. LeBron could not have a no-trade clause on his contract. 5

Trade LeBron Jeanie6:28 pm Wed May 8 EDTRemoved

Who wouldnt want him. The Rockets would almost imediately present a deal around CP3 + a bazillion picks. The Spurs would literally make an 180 degree turn to what they were built in in order to get him. 3

Can we just take a moment to acknowledge how much LeBron would dominate the NBA if he had Curry and Klay to space the floor for him 6:58 pm Wed May 8 EDTRemoved

Yeah, none of them were at the tier of Curry & Thompson. And LeBron won nearly unanimous MVP while also winning FMVP and was the DPOY leading vote getter by coaches. 3

If they sign a max player then they can trade their young players and assets for a third one. For example, if Kyrie signs and then they trade for Davis they will have Kyrie/LeBron/AD which will instantly be the best trio in the league. Surround them with 1

Serious Would you rather have Stephen Curry or Kyrie Irving in a finals series 11:59 pm Fri Jun 7 EDTRemoved

Would you rather have James Harden or Kwhai Leonard on your team5:55 pm Mon Jun 10 EDTRemoved

Unpopular right now but Harden mainly due to injury/durability concers with Kawhi. Since joining Houston Harden has played 618 out of 647 possible games. In that same span Leonard has played 513 out of 684 possible games. 0
