Listening Detroit talk radio and they say multiple teams are calling for Blake griffin

Why is this relevant?

Garpax are highly interested lmfao. This team isn’t even worth posting a face palm pic

seems like OKC would be a good spot for Griffin, but they claim the CP3 talks are over and he will start the year with the team, possibly joining the group of December 15th trade candidates from teams that just committed the us mint to the free agent signings.

Didn't CP3 & Griffin end on bad terms?

They brought Harrison back - I like him as a an end of the bench defensive specialist.

We have to get atleast one "Coby to Shaq" this season.

So who is gone now? They waived Lemon Jr and Shaq after signing the free agents because the roster was at 15.

Im guessing Dunn will be traded for something other than a player or they will waive Blakeney.
I just thought these guys were waived before the beginning of the new nba year so you cant have more than 15 at any one time. Thinking the gone would have to happen before the return.

You probably do not have to narrow it down to 15 until opening day and even if that isn't the case, announcing a signing doesn't mean that player has "officially" signed - its more of an agreement to sign.

I guess, maybe they have to be at 15 by the end of the league year, then at 15 by opening day. I figured both of these guys got 2 way contracts to the G league.

I thought they were smarter than this. Nobody can tell how he is going to play after that injury.
Nah...

Porzingis is a player worth taking gamble on financially, because his upside is an unstoppable scorer. He makes you relevant and is a potential #1, and guaranteed #2 or #3 if reasonably healthy.

who has yet to play one game for your organization, coming off of an injury that was probably never suffered by someone his size and height in the NBA. But like I said, its todays NBA. Max mediocre players. Its like watching NFL quarterbacks like Dilfer, Wilson, Flacco win super bowls before they are considered franchise quarterbacks, you know, what every team needs.

I felt all the philadelphia fans cringe when Simmons said he wants to be the best 3 point shooter in the NBA. All that play making will be going to waste.

Its not going to be much different for the greek freak. The fucker got all buff last summer and is still growing. The cartilage and ligaments just cannot keep up to the extra 3 inches his body grew.

If true, I love it. Lakers have been gifted so many players because of the league. Raptors kind of short end but did you really think he would stay when he was always about going home? NBA next year is going to be fire

sore losers. Does anyone really think the Raptors were going to go after a max guy to replace him while the lakers will get ALL the veterans without a ring that get bought out or released.

Theres a rule, a team can only get one bought out player from another team and pay them pennies compared to what the other team is on the hook for.

We can call that on the LeBron rule. Shit happened in Cleveland, it will happen in LA.

The Lakers crying is so far beneath them, I don't even know what to say.

The player they missed out on was probably Deangelo Russell, who their division rival moved on wisely to get through next season.

I'd be trolling Lavine to the Lakers if they had anything left to trade. They are going to gobble up buy-outs...should go get themselves Oden who is playing CBI right now.

AD can carry the franchise and become the 25-28ppg player they need there. Rondo gets another chance to shine,

I just don't see a group that old getting through a season too healthy.

Zinger is one of the more overrated players in the league. Much more so, if you believe he could be a franchise player. Then factoring in the injury concerns, I think best bet, is a #3 on a good team. I think Lauri is the much better prospect and will have the better career.

This is why there will be a lockout. Owners drop their pants, lube up and wait. Players do not respect their contracts, get into hissy fits and demand to be traded, and instead of the league doing something about it, they just keep paying more and more money.

How many great players never make the NBA. How long would the league take to replace these primadonnas where 20 million is a minimum wage job?

Cant wait to go to the united center to watch the scab bulls.
