    Good deal for Brooklyn. Even if Russell ends up being trash he atleast gives the fans some hope for now.

    I have to laugh at Dwight becoming a journeyman.

    This is going to sound crazy, but I think the Bulls should have traded for him.

    Everywhere he goes Howard destroys team chemistry. A big move like that would obviously be a disaster, so maybe it precipitates an entire house cleaning.

    Cavs don't know what they are up against, imo.

    They are pursuing a team of Irving-George-Anthony-Lebron-Thompson.


    Trading 2's for 3's, still have the problem that the Warriors possess 3 of the top 5 3-point shooters in their starting line-up. They have none.

    That cavs squad would have a definite chance against GS. Not many teams have four 20 ppg scorers and lebron and George's length would cause a lot of problems. Durant would get a lot of different looks on defense.

    There is only so many shots. The problem is none of those 4 guys are as efficient at scoring as the 2 MVP's golden state has. Lebron and George close that cap with defense, but the other two don't play defense.

    There is only room for 2 big scorers in this league. Bosh and Love and Thompson went to the way side. Its about the other functions your role players can do and what their scoring effeciency is. Curry, Durant, and Lebron are all excellent at getting lesser players good looks. Jimmy Buckets not so much, more a guy who stalls the offense, draws iso defense, figures out real late in shot clock he isn't going to get a good look, and dishes it to a guy who has to shoot. not all assists are equal.

    Neither Thibs nor Hoiberg have an offense I have ever figured out how things are supposed to go. Hard to evaluate the players.

    That's surprising because Harden ran the point exceptionally well last year.
