Spurs actually have some young players, they just have what you might call "veteran leadership" if you weren't willing to admit they have some geezers to go with the kids. They could get a good FA, there's some cap room IIRC, but they tend to favor home-grown talent.

>>90168117
maybe porzingis?
>>
>>90168117
The only money they'll have is the MLE and being able to re-sign Rudy Gay. None of the FAs in their price range would move the needle.
>>
>>90168000
can you imagine resigning when you're 4 wins away from being the winningest coach in nba history
>>
>>90168148
They would need to move Pau and mills to be able to make an offer for a decent FA, if they could pick someone up and bring dejounte in as a starter again and white from the bench they could be really good next season.
>>
>>90168191
they need to move Pau anyway, he'll be pushing 40 by the end of the year. Mills is an underrated shooter though so the FA they sign would have to be solid
>>
>>90168174
what about that retard jerry sloan who retired win away from 3rd
>>
>>90168215
The list of FAs in the summer is just too good to not move Mills if you can to make space

I feel like the last weeks or so has been a good indicator of who is making the playoffs, and who isnt, both for West and East. I will list them now, in no particular order

West:
Lakers
Warriors
Rockets
Thunder
Clippers
Spurs
Trail Blazers
Kings

East:
Raptors
76ers
Bucks
Pacers
Celtics
Heat
Nets
Hornets

This is almost certainly the lineup, however there are chances that the magic or pistons snag the 8th seed from one of the nets or hornets, however besides that, this is factually correct based on how well teams are playing

thoughts?
>>
>>90168215

The last year of Pau's contract is only guaranteed at $6.7 million so that should be good for a buyout

Lakers? Nope. Lottery-bound.

Do you really think they will drop enough games to be out of the playoffs?

Top Tier: Nuggets, Warriors
(Should be) Solid Enough: Thunder, Spurs, Rockets
Fringe Contenders: Lakers, Trailblazers, Clippers

Depending on what happens up to the All-Star Game, Twolves, Jazz, Kings, Pelicans, and the Mavs could try to make a run and the bottom three spots would be a bloodbath.

still some ~40 games to go. some underperformers might catch a break and some overachievers might miss theirs. there will still be drama jockeying for hca between the 4 & 5th seeds in both conferences, and the 6-9 spots in the west will remain fluid well into march and april. we just got a taste of that seeding ambition drama with this spurs/okc game.

All three are midround picks. Plus, that Grizzlies pick might not convey if they go inside the top 8. Kings are legit. They will not be in the bottom ten. And the Clippers are pretty legit too.

This draft is not even deep either. Waste of assets. Plus, Jaylen is trending toward rotational level player.

Celtics will have to offer Jaylen, Jayson, Kings pick, Grizz pick and clippers pick if they want AD.

was the last three games of this series the most clutch play ever by the cavs or was it refball?

did the cavs just hit a groove or did the warriors beat themselves?

im only asking because I'm a bored cavs fan and it really felt like lebron beat curry mentally to win In the end. dude was swatting everything around the rim.

Curry is a pussy mentally. I hate Bronsexuals and all the dickriding LeBron gets from casual fans, pussy fans, and ESPN/sports media, but he's an alpha mentally. He totally destroyed Curry that Finals.

NBA TOP TEN

1. LeBron
2. Giannis
3. Harden
4. Durant
5. Curry
6. Kawhi
7. Davis
8. PG13
9. Embiid
10. Jokic

There is a major drop off in talent after these ten.

Imagine if the Lakers sign PG13 and traded for Kawhi liked they planned?

C: McGee
PF:LeBron
SF:Kawhi
SG: PG13
PG: Rondo
Bench: Lance, Beasley, Chandler

Holy shit, these team is the greatest ever assembled. Fucking PG13 blew it for chuckbrook.

>>
>>90168117

They don't need any.

Derrick White is their next big superstar, along with Dejounte Murray (1st team all NBA) coming back next year from injury. Bryn Forbes has also been developed into a starter, along with Davis Bertans being the best 3pt shooter in the NBA.

The Spurs are rapidly approaching Warriors level.

The only positions left are the PG and C. Being a SG, SF, or PF is meaningless nowadays as most coaches just rotate their wings interchangeably in those positions. Even the point can be run by something like a SF if he’s quick enough and can pass well.

The only position that will take time to “die” is the Center, because teams will basically always station their biggest players under the hoop for rebounds and shit. Until teams figure out more crafty ways of dealing with the paint, the C ain’t going anywhere anytime soon.

My thoughts exactly, I could see any team of the West besides the Suns being in the playoffs and playing good basketball.

This is probably one of the most exciting seasons to watch, it's gonna be a rollercoaster till the end. Everybody was like it's game over with Warriors signing Cousins and Celtics are gonna cruise through the East with 60+ wins. I love how Warriors are getting blown out inside their stadium and Celtics struggling. Couldn't stand another final GSW-CLE final.

I think Luka Doncic actually does make the all-star game. This isn’t the same situation as Zaza where a total scrub who had no business being anywhere near the all star game was getting ballot stuffed by his home country.

Luka is at the very least close to an all-star level player and won’t get completely shut out in the player/media poll. Plus his votes aren’t just coming from a devoted ballot bombing campaign in his home country, he’s genuinely popular in a multitude a places like Spain, former Yugoslav countries, and Dallas which by itself is a massive media market in the US. Silver isn’t gonna skim the votes on Luka, his popularity grows the NBA. If he wasn’t fine with this, Luka wouldn’t already be getting superstar whistle treatment from refs.

I think you’re definitely right. The League really wants this guy to become big, like a white LeBron James or something

Honestly I think he will be very good. Probably doesn’t deserve to make the game this year, but next year he will be on that level

here's a box score from a game between the Lakers and Bucks in 1970, when Wilt was THIRTY-FOUR and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was twenty-three:
>Wilt: 48 minutes played, 28 points, 23 rebounds, 3 assists: 7-20 FG, 14-16 FT
>Kareem: 30 minutes played, 21 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists: 13-32 FG, 3-4 FT
here's another box score from later in the season (1 month later):
>Wilt: 48 minutes played, 25 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists: 11-23 FG, 3-7 FT
>Kareem: 42 minutes played, 37 points, 16 rebounds, 0 assists: 17-33 FG, 3-8 FT
here's some footage of an old-as-fuck Wilt, playing through injuries and shitty knees, playing neck-and-neck with a young Kareem; reminder that Kareem was averaging 34 and 16 at this time in his career

I concur. He doesn't need to be as dominate as he was pre-injury. Just put him in a dwest role and they're good to go. He'll have open looks at the top of the key and if the defense decides to pressure him, that just opens up klay, kd, or steph.

Nah, Wilt was the one pre-80s player I’d say would still hold his own in the modern NBA. Now he wouldn’t quite be a statistical monster that can drop 100 points in a game, but he would still be a superstar.

The guy was very skilled for his size on top of being super athletic. His presence was so great that he completely changed people’s understanding of what effect one player can influence the outcome of games both at the college level and the professional level, and established the very foundation from which Magic, Kareem, and Bird would take the sport to an entirely new level of popularity in the 80s.

Guys like Bill Russell are the ones who wouldn’t do shit in the modern era. His legacy was build completely on the fact of being marginally successful at keeping Wilt from just utterly destroying his team while his superior supporting cast could abuse the scrubs playing with Wilt. For the over a decade that Wilt played, the game never once passed him by or did he ever get “exposed”. The only thing that finally stopped him was age.

The Warriors don’t really have anything left to prove, they’ve won three championships in four years. The Spurs are considered to be a model organization in the NBA and won 5 titles over 15 years with five HoF players without repeating.

Their stats dropped a bit, but nothing like what happened to KG after joining the Celtics. He went from apparent superstar to simply an all-star, and hardly even distinguished himself as the best player on the team. He won his lone championship averaging 20.4 ppg and 10.7 rpg in the playoffs which is dirt trash compared to what Dirk and Duncan averaged in their respective championship years (other than Duncan’s final one which people don’t attribute to him anyway). And that was by far KG’s best year in the playoffs for the Celtics, he completely fell off a cliff after that and Paul Pierce became the clear #1 on the team.

Is this true? The only young short PG I can think of who is any good is Ben Simmons

KP going down enabled you to draft Knox (sub 40%FG) to add to a young core of Frank (KEK), Dotson, and Mudiay(?)

Knicks - best player is injured

it's not fair only teams like the Warriors and Celtics have competent GM's and the rest are morons. Adam Silver should step in and do something about it, like only have fans who actually are knowledgeable of the game of basketball allowed to be GM's. Stop all this nepotism bullshit and have a nationwide 2K tournament to see who's the best at running a team and have the top 30 be GM's

Yes, other teams didn’t go out and get Durant because they lacked salary space lmao

Nobody complained about the millinials being unfairly stacked until after they tilted the league and put 2 of the league’s 3 best players on the same damn team via free agency. Durant, LeBron, and Curry-caliber players should be facing off against each other, not fucking joining forces.

Let’s put this Celtics streak in perspective: The 3 best players they faced during this little run are: KAT, Victor Oladipo, and a rookie Luka Doncic, and all at home. I am sure tales will written about the time the Celtics savaged these legendary players all in the same week.

I don’t see how people can unironically believe this. Like LeBron completely cucks the East for 7 straight years, finally decides to move west, the 2 best rookies in this year’s class also end up in the west, and some moron thinks this is finally the year the East is better than the West.

You can’t reasonably compare college stats from the time Jordan played to what they are now. Back then draft-worthy players stayed in college much longer and didn’t just declare after their freshman year. Zion would not be dominating that hard if all the one-and-dones in the NBA this year were still in college.

That has nothing to do with analyzing Giannis's current trajectory, which is nowhere close to what GOAT contenders were on. GOAT contenders have more than one 1st round exit by the time they are in their 6th year in the league.
