>>104037148Not gonna happen, shlomo.

Everyone wants to be a coast to coast champion
now that I think about it, was Ibaka actually good or were there just so many shitty free agent signings this time around that he only seems good by comparison? he was always the worst of the big 4 on the thunder...

>>104037148tomorrow is nov. 22 and harden will sign with the nets.harden is winning his ring this year.
>>104037325There was never a "big 4" he didn't take off until the year after. Was a major player especially in 2014.
If harden goes to Brooklyn, will the nets offically be the meme team of the season?
Can't wait for Kawhi and PG to leave.Hope Kawhi comes back to the Raptors instead of being a brainlet and signing with some other big team because Uncle Dennis.
>>104037270Legends say lebron's hairline receded another 3 inches that day

>>104037525They will break shot clock violation records
Does LeBron deserve the hairline bullying?
If the Clippers get the 1 seed they're going to blow a first round series to a 10 seed.
>>104037538Honestly can't imagine where he could go other than the Lakers due to his whole "being home" narrative. But I also don't see that happening as long as Lebron is there. He'll probably stick with the Clippers until Lebron retires.
>>104037657Yes, especially after his botched follicle transplant surgery. Just should have left it alone.

>>104037148The Rockets gain absolutely nothing by taking the Nets package at this point. The Nets trade package was severely diminished when they shipped away the 19th pick and it appears that all of the moves they've made this offseason have been for win now pieces instead of assets the Rockets might want. Furthermore, Harden seems to be willing to at least try the new Rockets roster with Wood.
MAGA. League of Legends. Basketball.In that order.
>>104037864>Harden seems to be willing to at least try the new Rockets roster with Wood.LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWE GOT CHRISTAN WOOD Y'ALLHE STAY!>loses Covington
>>104037191Both guys have 1 ring so they're of equal value :)

If the Rockets lose Harden then the whole franchise loses identity
>>104037884He's not a free agent so he has no choice. He either chills out and runs it back once more with Houston (assuming they don't find a better deal for him before the deadline) or he stages some big autistic protest and sits the season out. Nothing he's said so far indicates he's leaning towards the latter.
>>104037931If your identity is one player, you have no identity. Losing Morey is worse.
>>104037148I don't see Harden and Kyrie playing well together if it happens and I could see the whole thing imploding sooner rather than later.
Neither Morey or Harden will ever win a ring.
>>104037191wtf they signed Tristan fucking Thompson? lmfao
>>104037908It's more of a "fuck the Nets" thing than a "go Houston" thing tbqh.
>Disgruntled ex-Lakeshitter Danny Green leaked AD reupping Lakeshit contractDanny is such a salty bitch

>>104037853TT is a good pickupTeague is just motivation for one of Edwards/Pritchard to step up in training campWe good, Celticsbros
I don't think Mavs are gonna get into playoff next year
Why do people still think Harden could go to the Nets? If they're going to suck anyway with or without him, they're going to dare him to sit out until they find an offer they actual would want (Simmons).
Harden isn't moving, and Westbrook isn't either. After Gasol and Bogdanovic, it's over. Camp is in a week.
ooffff Raptors got fucked
>>104037954Harden is 100% winning like 10 TBTs in a row after he retires.
>So it says here you want Gordon Hayward>Well I-I mean We, want Cody Zeller, Miles Bridges and Devonte Graham >Don't want the deal Michael? I'll hang up then.
>>104038004Tick tock cockshit.
>>104037675epic twitter post
>>104037939>Nothing he's said so far indicates he's leaning towards the latter.It was reported that Harden has formally requested a trade, that the Nets are at the top of that list, and that he thinks his Championship window in Houston has 'closed'.
>12 million for 4 years? Sign him up!
>>104037996If Harden sat out that would be a dream scenario for Houston. Their draft pick is going to OKC next year but it's 1-4 protected. If they can tank their way to a top 4 pick, trade Harden for just one elite young player and trade Westbrook for some picks they'll be in a great spot.
>>104037996they won't trade simmons
>>104038066Yeah but sitting out the season is a much more dramatic step. Pretty much only turbo autists like Kawhi would resort to that. He'll bite the bullet and play until Houston finds the right trade package.
Rockets should go for Gasol, imagine Gasol setting screens for HardenEZ CASH MONEY
>>104038068Good luck tanking, getting a top 4 pick with the new rules, just to still own OKC a first again, half to tank top 4 again, and again if it doesn't convey.We're probably looking at less than 20% chance of not giving OKC a 1st, and if you fail to be land a top 4 pick trying to tank, you're handing OKC a high lottery pick. You can keep denying it, but Harden will no longer be a Rocket this off season or the next. Tim MacMahon also thinks Harden will eventually be traded this off season and hinted that Houston no long believes they can keep Harden either.It's not for you to decide, Harden will win this exchange 9 times out of 10.
Again I don't know if this dude is legit but for some reason some rocket fans are convinced its kendrick perkins burner account. anyway he thinks harden is resigning
>>104038107>You can keep denying it, but Harden will no longer be a Rocket this off season or the next. Yeah but he's not going to the Nets. They have no assets.
imagine thinking masai is still an asset lmao
The overwhelming history of trade demands ends up with the player being traded regardless of contract years.It's happening, just accept it.
>>104038117maybe, but probably not to the Nets
>>104038117Harden to the Warriors is what will happen
>serge follows kawhi in lalmaoi bet boucher is next
>>104038112Harden is gonna ruin his legacy for moneyBased?
>>104038086I wouldn't be so sure he'll play. It was the same thing with the Davis package. Do you think NOLA really thinks they got what they should have from that? It was considered the haul of the century, and they got:A PG who can't shotAn easily replaceable wing player5 1st round picks that will all convey in the LATE first roundIngram was the best piece of that trade, no doubt. But the Lakers won a ring off it already, and Harden is nowhere close to Davis.The Rockets damage their look as an org if they don't bend to Hardens request, similar to how NOLA would have damage their status in players eyes if they held on to Davis for a year and forced him to either play or sit out. They run the risk of no one wanting to play there if they're seen as a team that isn't player friendly. It isn't friendly to force a superstar who gave your city everything he had for nearly a decade to play on a team he doesn't want to be on anymore.

>>104038201>Who is stopping my Blazies?The Lakers, Clippers, Nuggets, and Mavericks. They should be able to beat anyone else, though.
>>104038203Trez is shit at defense and Ibaka probably didn't wanna play here
>>104038249You don't think you have a shot at Giannis?
the absolute state of:cloppersnuggersracketswarioscraptorsincelticsbusckhow much are these GM's paid to be literal retards?
>>104038249Blow it up, Flip everyone except for OG and SiakamMasai doesn't have the balls to do that tho
>>104038263No. I'm not delusional. Why would he come to Toronto when the best player is an aging Lowry?Siakim is a #2 at best when he's paired with people who can space and Giannis wouldn't provide that space so he'll just be worse.Fred has tunnel vision.OG is the only one with promise.
>>104038292Well at least you're realistic. I think, if he does enter FA next off season, it's going to be between the Heat, Warriors, and Lakers.
>>104038309Would a ring count for a team of AD, LeBron, and Giannis?
>>104038309lakers? no wayMavs, most likely, or heatbut he'll sign the extension
>>104038309>and Lakers.I like this part of your post desu.
>>104038132The AD package was fantastic tbqh when you look at the context. The Pelicans already knew they were getting Zion, a guy everyone pegged as being a franchise cornerstone. They had to build an entire team around him quickly that matched his timeline, For one year of AD they got>Their new long term starting PG in Ball>Ingram, an all star 2nd option >Hart, their 6th man>A #4 pick they were able to flip into a #8, #17 and #35 (plus two second rounders)>Two extra first roundersThat's a whole team right there. To me that was the definition of a mutually beneficial trade. The Nets package for Harden isn't even remotely close to being as good and he has two years on his deal.
>>104038324Nah it'd be the gayest ring after the KD Warriors
>>104038337Already posting Trez packs after a year of bashing him every week. Lakefags are ther worst.
>>104038340Sure, when you spin it that way. Ingram is an empty stats scorer which are becoming more common in the NBA with how loose 1 on 1 defense has become, Hart is easily replaceable off the bench for what he does, 8 points a game ? lol. And Ball is basically elfrid Peyton.Of course, the Lakers knew all of this. They probably spun the trade to NOLA on the phone the same way you're doing now. They have a ring, will probably win a couple more, and the Pelicans will be fighting for a playoff spot during all the years those picks convey.
>>104038309What about the Mavs or the Nuggies?
Harden is not being moved he's playing Silas ball now with Wood. Houston should take the Charlotte or NY deals and try to steal young talent like Randle, Washington, Rozier, or Barrett.
>>104038363nope. he's coming to brooklyn.
Trez is going to be the James Worthy to LeBron and AD's Magic and Kareem.
>>104038363>young talent like Randle
>>104038388lmao no, lebron will trade him like everyone else
>>104038355idk what you're talking about desu, but we welcome in the new guys fast, gotta get them settled in.
>>104038406I hope AD tears his Achilles this year
Trez turned down more money from the Hornets because he didn't want to move and he didn't want to lose the LA thots.
>>104038426makes sense to me

>>104038337>>104038406this nigga sus
Oh, hey Danny, I just signed a center that won 6MOY of the year for 2 years $19 million. Did the Celtics sign anybody?

Nigga fuck you
When does Curry demand a trade? Or is he fine being on a tanking team for the rest of his career?
>>104038486no one can guard lebron, keeping him to 28ppg isn't guarding himclippers are going to be even more mentally broken now, and ty lue was already with them and their depression so he's not changing shitnuggets losing grant is bigmavs traded like retards but portland licks more dick than every team in the league so all of them>>104038510he's a real one
>>104038510why would he? curry, oubre, dray, wiggins, wiseman>Or is he fine being on a tanking team for the rest of his career?klay is supposed to be back next season
Losing Ibaka is really unfortunate, he was the second most consistent player on the team right behind Lowry. Feels pretty bad.
>>104038529Man Warriors are faneto as a contender.

Murray is a poor mans Lillard, and Nurkic is a poor mans Jokic, so it's even between those two, and both their benches are solid. There's a reason they went to 7 games two years ago, very evenly matched teams.>MavsI think they win ~60 games this year and are the West two seed and Doncic wins MVP, but obviously if they are more like alst year and don't take the leap I think they will, yeah Portalnd is pretty even with them.

>>104038680morris and pat bev for john wall, make it happen
I blame the reason on why Ibaka left us is because he doesn't want to play in a shit hole like Florida. Tampa Bay is uncultured and Ibaka is a very cultured person. You stupid hillbilly fucks couldn't deal with this virus seriously and we Ibaka because of it. Fuck Americans.
>>104038737not without another big they're not. dwight was the perfect backup big for AD because he's lanky and injury prone and needs someone to carry the load in the regular season and give a solid 15-20 mpg in the playoffs to give AD a rest.
>>104038529>klay is supposed to be back next season>ACL followed by an achilles tearI like Klay but with him, Durant, Wall and Boogie I think people are being a bit too optimistic about these older players with torn achilles tendons.
>>104038726im surprised tristan thompson ducked them for the celtics
>>104038766well we haven't seen any of them play yet. but you could be totally right.

>>104038755same 2bhwhy are americans so shit at doing the right thing
>>104038786was the source your top and was that BIG something his cock and are you subtly implying that he'll be ramming you for the next few hours with a cock as big as Kawhi's? impressive that you're still managing to post

>>104038815I wonder what would have happened if he never got injured. League would look very different maybe, perhaps AD never would have left the Pels if he signed an extension with them in the offseason.

>>104039226pretty fucking based tbqhwyf
laugh at PJ tucker now
>>104039184I think there will be a lot of minutes to go around at center in GSW.Kerr will start Looney as long as he's healthy, but he gets injured all the fucking time. Chriss is nominally a PF, but he's the same height as Looney. Gasol is 35 years old.They are out of contention because of the injury to Klay.All of this points to giving Wiseman minutes to develop. Damian Jones got his chance and that was when they were in position to win it all, it didn't work out for him, but he got the opportunity. Wiseman will get the same.
>>104039226Might be a way to score some assets midseason. Contender loses a center and you give em a call like alright we both know you ain't about to sign Hasheem Thabeet or Larry Sanders let's work something out how's Jah for a first sound?
>>104039259yea but it's still going to hurt nuggies, unless bol balls out this season, but I don't think he is going to do so this year, atleast not that early into it.

Ranking the contenders off-season moves so far:Sixers: A - they needed to trade a forward and get shooting. They traded a forward (Horford) and got shooting (Seth Curry). A clear winBucks: B - They got clearly better by trading for Jrue and signing Portis. They gave up a ridiculous amount for Holiday - if that leads to Giannis re-signing or getting them to the finals then it was worth it, otherwise that trade is a fucking disaster.Lakers: C - they got some higher-upside younger players and lost some lower-upside-but-reliable vets. I'd call it a wash, but it's risky. They couldn't have done much more with what they had trade-wise but I'm not sold on Harrell or Schroder as players.Heat: C- - Losing Crowder, gaining Bradley, re-signing Dragic. It's pretty much a wash?Clippers: C- - Depends how you rank losing Harrell, gaining Ibaka and re-signing Morris. Meh.Celtics: E - losing Hayward just meant they got worse, and signing Thompson is not the answer.Rockets: F - franchise is imploding even if all the roster changes to seal the deal haven't happened yetSuns/Pacers/Nuggets: Who the actual fuck cares?
>>104039878> No Nets
>>104039878>nuggets>who caresyea exactly who cares about your ranking
>>104039889Have the Nets done anything worth talking about?

>>104037101>ibaka agrees to short-term deal with clippers>clippers steal another player from usthey can't keep getting away with it bros, it's not fair
>>104040213Clippers still need a playmaker and ibaka is gonna miss having Lowry
>>104040213Won't miss Ibaka at all. Watching him brick wide open 20 foot jumpers, losing the ball in the key, losing his man on D and constant injuries was bad. This team had too much Africa brain and it was costly in high IQ situations.Imagine not signing Janice because you blew your cap space on a multi year deal for Ibaka.
If the Celtics get the 20 million dollar trade exception-how long does it last for?
>>104040506>This team had too much Africa brain and it was costly in high IQ>Imagine not signing Janicekek
>>104038229Why did he sign TT when IT was out there needing a deal ;_;
>>104040213Jesus christ that gif.
>MH7 @_Michaelinho>By 2024, Gordon Hayward will have made 330 million American dollars in the NBA. He has averaged over 20 points one (1) time. He has been an All Star one (1) time.>In 670 total NBA games, Gordon has scored 40 points one (1) time. He has been Player of the Week one (1) time. He has grabbed 15 rebounds one (1) time. He has has 12 or more assists one (1) time.
>>104040883Good for him, I'm legit jelly.
>>104040935i'm not. fuck that maga chud, this ain't right.

>>104040883we seriously need an alternate BOSS pasta where his bank account is overflowing :)
>>104041085I dont think is happening
>>104038229Tree is shit in the playoffs and Ibaka is a meme defender.
>>104041085If it happens, and its a very big miraculous IF, then my celties are back :)
>Zion Williamson is currently the longest tenured New Orleans Pelican.
>>104041153the celtics will never win a championship and most of your rings are * since they were before I was born and I don't believe anything they tell me that happened before I was born
ImagineTaking a pay cut. Signing with a team (cl*ppers) to ring chase when they only have 1 (one) year left of being "contenders". Joining a team that has Pat Bev AND ACTUALLY PLAYS HIM (lol)What was Ibaka thinking?
>>104041429Probably friends with Kawhi.
>>104041429>>104041492Not sure if you're aware, but they were on the same team together for like a year.
>>104041429Better than your shit franchise lmao. Lowry going to the clips next year too
>>104041429He was thinking how shit the craptors are, dumb leaf
>sixers become competetive but added a flopping trannyfucker as our backup Cyou know what? I'll allow it.
>>104041583dwight will revert to being cancer now that he has a ring
>>104037288>Ya, stop talking about the nba, in the nba general. Stoopid monkey.
>>104041616I'll take care of it
>>104041511I hope he goes to the Clippers and takes a huge check.
>>104041629godspeed hinkie. im sure your multi-decade master plan is going smoothly
>>104041660Morey is merely the conclusion of The Process™
>>104037325Ibaka was hyped as a big 4 but didn’t take off till later, and yeah he played good for t he raptors. Good pickup on any team, plays defense, can spread the floor, still fairly athletic etc.
>>104038723Kennard is an underrated pickup
>>104038628is skip mentally ill
>>104040883He had a skill set that pays the bills, being able to pass, shoot, defend in his prime? You get paid more
>>104037148Lmao 3 guys who all need the ball and want to take the final shotIt would be funny if they trade kyrie for him thoughImagine the flat earther getting traded after all this plotting and scheming
Remember when Ibaka was absolute garbage and the Raptors saved his career?
>>104042332i do actually. magic ibaka was a mistake.
>IbakaHe got exposed in the Celtics series this year. Their defense went to shit whenever he was on the floor. Fine regular season player tho
Ibaka is going to be fucking garbage for the clippers lmao
>>104042332Why do you overrate him? He was a backup center no more important than McGee. And he will be a backup center to an average center Zubacs. He just happened to be on a championship team. Marc Gasol was really good though. Even though he was slow.
>>104037101who cares about orc ball?
>>104043138This thread has 82 posters from multiple countries

>>104038201nurk gets injured again guaranteed
>ibaka 2 year/19 mil to the clippersibaka for less than 10 mil a year is a STEAL. good for the clippers. Although i am not sure that will be the move that wins them the chip, their defense is mad nice on paper. however the lakers must be relieved they didnt get rondo (as well)>kcp 3 year / 40 mil that is huge money for kcp. i am still not convinced about him but i guess he would be cheaper than what's available and they already know what he brings to the table . plus i think because they had him they can go above the tax to sign him or something. if lakies get Gasol it's good night everyone tho>melo to the blazers for the vet minaaight i guess he was surprisingly adequate. blazies desperately need a good backup/defensive PG and they will get an A+ for the postseason >>104043753any LoL accolades ?
>>104038451that's why they signed him, ad was crushin on him
>>104040883There are a lot of players like this actually.
>>104043814>any LoL accolades?I think hes hardstuck gold
>>104037191Celtics got a goon which is what they needed
>>104043892Iguadala, Al Horford, Tobias Harris are a few other players off the top of my head with similarly weak statlines who got paid hundreds of millions.

>>104044504hahahahaha it's actually truegood fucking riddance, this off season is net neutral after all
YEAH I"M THINKING THE CLIPS ARE THE FAVORITES AGAIN
FUCk byrn forms im so glad he's off the team
Where did this BOSS meme come from?Gareth Bayol?
>>104045028alexis sancehz i think
>>104037876What's his rank?
i think ibaka could fit nicely on the clippers & from what ive seen they could use a multi position player with versatile enough defense who can shoot (at least in the regular season) but if we lose gasol too i am ready to seethe
Where is Kyle "Black Lives Matter" Korver going to?
>>104045089Gasol was so good pre-bubble, if he can regain his early season form, I am happy with him resigning
>A source tells @TheAthleticNBA that the Hawks' offer to Bogdan Bogdanovic is 4 years/$72 million.
Has the NBA eclipsed the MLB in contract absurdity?
The clippers replace an undersized big who sucks on d with an undersized big who sucks on d lmao, at least ibaka can spread the floor
>>104045252Not even close
>>104045252no, far from it desu
>>104045174>lion penis pizza
>>104045173Danny will sign him for sure

>>104045405This is why you dont work for the nba.
>>104045405There is still time to delete this
Ibaka is gonna look like trash offensively without an elite point guard to set him up. He'll be an upgrade over Harrell and Zubac for sure but AD is still gonna eat him for breakfast.
>>104045405looking at how most arenas will not be able to allow any fans, or not even close to enough fans to generate enough revenue to even run the arenas, they'd be better off offering the arenas to serve as vaccination centers and set up a couple of mini bubbles with 5-10 teams (one or two divisions).
Gasol to warriors would be pretty based. Marc passing out of the post to Steph running off screens would be basketball kino.
Why do so many people think lakies will still finish 1st seed again, they've lost so many pieces already
>>104045405Players will probably be vaccinated before the season.
>>104045716i guess so but we already have 3 centers, 4 with paschall
>>104043988Naming two white guys in similar situations only helps his point
Don't mind me, just posting the next nba great
>12 days from now, Gordon Hayward will have 1 million more dollars in his account
>>104045719They've only really lost Dwight. Schroeder > RondoKCP is backMatthews > GreenThe only reason they won't be better than last year is because LeGod is gonna coast harder than ever in the regular season
>>104045352To be fair they are soulless now
>>104045845And don't forget about Harrel. On paper they are better than last year. They still have McGee, right?
>>104045808And suffer a season ending injury
>>104045751I sure hope nuggies don't get memed into that vaccine, wouldn't want them braindead by the time they are playing in the finals
>>104045754Wiseman + Gasol is a solid big man rotation imo. From what I heard leading up to the draft Wiseman has all the physical tools but he lacks the savvy and awareness to be an elite defender. Having gasol and draymond around to mentor him is ideal. If anything you just trade Paschall and whoever else for picks or another 3D wing.
>>104045889Imagine Charlotte bouncing Boston from the playoffs in the first round, just imagine it.
What's MPJ going to do when the NBA forces players to get the vaccine?
>>104045943Boston isn't taking 1st seed and the Hornets will be lucky to reach 8th seed.
>>104045879Yeah people really over estimating Dwight's impact right now. He was a luxury in certain matchups but against most small ball teams he wasn't even in the rotation.
Obi Toppin is Amar'e Stoudemire with a 3pt shot.
>>104046003I would rather have the entire squad of nuggies quit than to get that shit. sports are nice but freedom and your own health is more important
>>104046054exactly, he barely played in the finals
FA bombs rest on Sunday?
>>104046013>and the Hornets will be lucky to reach 8th seed....Should we tell him?
>>104046191Hawks submitted offer sheet for Bogdan
>>104046054>>104045879People same to forget that the only reason Dwight was even playing in the league last season because Boogie got injured during a workout and the Lakers were desperate to get another big. I don't think we'll ever see Dwight at the level he played at last year again. Dwight was motivated to rehabilitate his image and save his career. He had a strong veteran leader in LeBron that he respected. Dwight actually bought in and accepted his role. Dwight doesn't have that same motivation now and he has a ring. Doc and Embiid aren't the type of leaders that Dwight will fall in line for.
>Graham/Ball/PJ/H*yward/Bridges with Terry as 6th manIs it an improvement or downgrade?
>>104046191I think we'll see a domino effect of signings today if Gasol makes a decision.
>>104046166dwight was one of the main reasons nuggets lost to lakers in WCF
>>104046249This, Howard was unplayable in 3 of 4 playoff series and was only playable against the nuggets as a body to throw against jokic, not like he slowed him down much anyways besides that one game.
>>104045578>having this much faith in IbakaYou a loyal hoe for this. Bottom bitch status
>>104046362>main reasonsMaybe a reason, but don’t forget AD and Lebron combined for nearly 60 a game, Lebron also almost averaged a triple double.
>>104046367Jokic played 2nd most mins in the bubble so at the end he had no legs and was just running on fumes. Dwight took advantage of this as anyone should and made it look like he played a role. Other than that yeah, howard has seen his last days as a good player with min restrictions that helped his longevity during last season.
>>104045929Warriors are not giving away paschall. I believe for that to happen the warriors would likely explore trading LooneyProblem is that hes lost value last season with injuries. So hes a big ? for this season
>>104046316Improvement on paper but if they dont get some sort of inside presence they are going to have another not good enough for playoffs but not bad enough to tank season
>>104046316Doesnt matter, it will be fun to watch also you wont have to look at Batum shitting the court anymore
>>104046319gasol would be an idiot if he doesnt sign for a team with serious championship probability. im thinking only lakers / clippers / nets (if they get harden)he aint gonna get a lot of money and his legacy will be 10 times better with a ring even if he gets it like howard. he aint gonna get richer off 2 million more that he may get in golden state or toronto
>>104046806Gasol has a ring
>>104046806I think right now he's choosing between the Lakers, the Raptors, or going back to Spain. That's why I think it'll be a domino effect today once he signs. It looks like the Lakers are waiting for him to make his decision before they make any more moves. I imagine a lot of teams are then waiting to make a reaction to the Lakers signing if they get him.
>>104046806Teams like the nuggets, utah, suns, warriors, pacers would be cool for him too
>>104046806nuggies have a spot at center
>>104045312>>104045332fake. This is the one.
two huge turnovers in the eagles-brown game!
>>104046830fuck i forgot the fucking toronto shipok then get the money marc go to the knicks to get paid
>>104038214we did that to ourselves. we deserved to get a shit trade for Harden when we couldn't take the lux
>>104046316They'll have a fun team that scores a lot, which will generate excitement in Charlotte, that alone is an improvement. Probably gain a lot of casual NBA fans as well because of Ball, maybe gamers will tune in too because of le ankle man
Bogdan to the hawks, its over celtic bros...
>>104047277bringing back purple uni is the only thing that can save the craptors and instead they have another gay drake black and gold jersey
Who lost free agency?
>>104047385the hawks will be the mavs of the east
>Lakers stuck with Kuz for another yearOh nonononono
Ainge is working on a big move, r-right guys?
wtf why are bad teams signing players for 10% over market value instead of letting contenders sign them for 75% of market value ahhhh
>>104047456We pretty much did what I'd want, so long as we pick up an okay SF. All I care about is getting the vets out of the way and letting the young guys develop while we tank one more year.
>>104047437HornetsOne year away from escaping the Nic Batum worse contract in the league.Wat do here? Replace it with an even worse contract of course.
>>104046676>Warriors are not giving away paschallWhat do they need someone to help them tank again?
>Donovan Mitchell gets the max dealIt's another "star gets the max then forces a trade a year later" episode isn't it? This shit is all so tiring.
>>104047823In what world is Hayward at $30mil a year a worse contract than fucking Nicolas Batum at roughly the same number? Retard
>>104044504Cut his hair and slap a Curry on the back of his jersey he'll never know the difference with social distancing.
>lonzo gets to smash thisbros... I need a latina gf...
>>104048476that reminds me i need a white girl
>tfw LeGoat is about to 3peat When's the last time the defending champs got this much stronger in the off-season in terms of signings?
>>104048200Because Hayward got it as a 30 year old
>>104047385>>104047442>You now realize Trae and Luka had identical points and assist stats but the media and white bois desperate for Dirk2.0 didn't brand him GOAT tier in his 2nd season. All because of a garbage team and no statpadding rebounds for triple doubles. I used to think this guy was a bum but he's just as good as Luka desu

>>104049163he's going to get shipped to boston along with rozier
>>104049524Don't worry, the Lakers will win a proper post-2010 ring eventually. Just not with this roster.

uhhh bros? who's the raptors starting center?
>>104048476>plastic basic bitch god they're so fuckin' basic.

Bruh Ball fags are something else
>>104037203Fuck you we tried the rebuild approach more than once and it does not work.We bought to ball out
>>104039605He was not a good fit in Boston. He will be great in Charlotte. Him and ball are gonna show out
>>104050270Everyone gonna forget LaMelo once the season starts like they did once Lonzo went to NOLA anyway.
>>104050270disgusting, i hate this mutt family and especially their mutt father for creating this.
>>104048158He should be careful about leaving the Jazz. And honestly if the Jazz just nut up and trade Conley +picks for a star they are a contender.
>>104043753Him in Boston was Ibaka in Orlando or Jeremy Lin after the knocksNew home new reaults
>>104050318LaMelo/Hayward is just Luka/KP 2.0.
>>104050270Why are they so fucking obnoxious holy shit
>>104048476Body bangin face clangin
>>104045252This was much better than several years ago when the huge cap increase happened and people like Mozgov were getting eight figure deals.Or like that time the Knicks gave several million to Jerome James
>>104050270cannot stand these poor latino kids in america. bunch of ugly and dumb people
>>104045252it will soon.
>>104050419Considering best season in bobcats era hornets were Stephen Jackson and Larry Hughes and Larry brown, I’m going to fucking smile like a pussy eating gopher at the sight of Ball and Hayward on the same squad
>>104050419This, but unironically.
>>104050441It's the most optimal NBA body now.
>>104050419Hayward will play like 5 games next season..... why are this general and MJ forgetting how injury prone GH has become?
>>104050697I wasn't ironic either.
>>104050437they already took over & raided all Hornets medias, asking for meloposting in every posts/videos. Theres unironically more Ballfags than actual Hornetsfags on any Hornets posts right now kek>>104050419Big, if true.
>Lamelo Bust and his army of braindead zoomer fans already being obnoxious about a jersey numberThis is the circus you chose, Charlotte.

>>104050868>They're just memeing, bro
>>104050868At least we finally have a circus. God willing we trade rozier and monk for Lonzo then we can sign that scrub brother of theirs too
>>104050818I have nothing against the hornets but I truly hope Lamelo is as big of a bust as his brothers.
are there no signings today? or are they just not getting posted because the lakers got pooped on?
>>104050889Don't talk shit about my African raptorWe gon get jianusWe gon get embleedWe gon get biyombo
>>104050818The absolute state of Hornets fanbase.
>>104050992It’s gods day you ducking heathen also football is on
Lamelo is going to kill what is left of the Hornets. They're going to see all of their engagement online is coming from Lamelo's retarded zoomers and buy into it. They already barely have any real fans and now what actual fans they do have are going to be turned off by the Lamelo bullshit. When Lamelo inevitably busts, the team will have no identity, the Lamelo zoomers will be gone and so will all of the real fans.They'll be the Vegas Hornets in 10 years.
Bertans re-signing with Washington is really funny to me
>>104051222Lamelo is a future HOFer
DRAGON IS BACK
>willie cauley stein
Lamelo will be a bust and nothing more.
OKC have both Trevor Ariza and George Hill via their recent transactions, where are they headed?
>>104051222How the fuck did the Ball became THAT popular anyway? Zo has 8.8M, melo 5.8M and gelo 2.4M on IG
bitchass black bois never learn do they?
>marc gasolwhich team will carry this burden of a player. christ being part of the only legit championship in decades really raises player stocks
>>104051222You can't bust if the team wants you to succeed. If they go full Melo he'll get his numbers even if they're losing every game by 30.
>>104051222The team has increased in value every year since Jordan bought it despite the losing.
>>104051621It's unironically the fault of zoomers. The Ball family are essentially nothing more than social media "influencers" that happen to play basketball. Zoomers are obsessed with e-celebs and unfunny bullshit like Lavar.Lamelo is the peak zoomer and they all identify with him.

>>104045801What ever happened to that Bobroczi or whatever his name was? The super skelly high school kid that was supposed to be good
Gordon Hayward: $30,000,000Nicolas Batum: $27,130,434Terry Rozier: $18,900,000Cody Zeller: $15,415,730Biyombo: ~$15,000,000 - 18,000,000are my hornies elite
>>104051732I don't think that's much of an accomplishment? When was the last time an NBA team lost value after a new owner bought them? It must be decades ago. I think the Hornets could be more valuable in a different location. They're always in the bottom half of the league for attendance.Jordan does love his gambling ...
>>104052082Better than raptors at this point.
>>104045889what, carpal tunnel syndrome?
>>104051904yeah thats true some racists believe in the one drop rule
>>104052082I don't know what's funnier now between how much they're paying Batum and how much they're paying Hayward. How is MJ such a shit owner...
>>104045252The only US sportsman that earn more in salary annually than top NBA players (veterans on max/superman contracts) are elite quarterbacks.Baseball has longer contracts but also longer careers.
>>104052382Yeah I heard some German people think like that.
>>104052382>>104052457I heard you guys touch dicks maybe
>>104051922Averaging 30 as a midget with zero spacing while facing double teams and then averaging 10 assists passing to your bum teammates is way harder than you think. Luka had the advantage of playing in a team full of shooters and roll threats, it was pretty much 5 out every possession. You couldn't double him or crowd the lane without consequence. Trae's buckets and assists were harder to get. Also, he was pretty efficient, more than Luka.
>>104052573Of course, that's a finnish tradition. Dunno about germans tho.
>>104052664well we'll see how they will develope in the futurei hope they both become great players and have great success in the playoffs
