What do y'all think a trade package for Butler would look like at trade deadline if he says he is leaving no matter what and won't commit to a team he is traded to so they have no leverage, and he would only be a half year playoff rental. Would they get a 1st and or good young prospect? Who do y'all think might would trade for him?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2018 15:48:35
Probably the Warriors giving up a pick and igoudola, ahha

But, probably 2 late 1sts and an expiring contract with some filler and maybe a low end prospect. If there is some kind of wink wink deal behind the scenes that he’ll resign, maybe a little bit more.

There's a few teams that could try to make a move to get him that would make sense.

Portland: Something like Harkless, Aminu, Swanigan/ Trent, and a first
Cleveland: Clarkson, Korver, and a young guy or two (Osman, Nance, Zizic), and a first
Memphis: Temple, Green, Brooks/ Rabb, and a first (I like the fit of Butler in Memphis if Gasol and Conley are healthy, they could jump to a top 3 seed)
Indiana: A deal centered around Turner wouldn't shock me.

Magic- Vucevic, Ross

Pacers- Young, Joseph, '19 1st

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Aug 2018 03:58:17
The Pacers have 2 good centers. I don’t think it would be easy to find minutes for Vucevic.

If you're favorite team was down 1 and you could choose any current NBA player to take the shot, who would it be?

Personally, I go Kyrie with Lebron as a close 2nd.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Aug 2018 02:31:06
Steph curry. He practices circus shots for his warm-ups. Top 5 impact players in the league.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2018 02:46:05
Kd, in playoffs


Harden in regular season because he will get the whistle.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2018 04:27:19
Best shooter is. curry . By far no one even close.
To bad his team is up by so much he doesn’t get to see those crunch time shots very often.

Sooooo I’m going with jr smith .

Not like he would run to enter court and not even shoot.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2018 06:32:46
KD has the height advantage as well as touch.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Aug 2018 14:37:18
Depends on how much time is on the clock 1 second or 5 seconds and the other teams defense are they better at defending perimeter or paint? Closer to 5 seconds prob Davis. your down by 1 so a 2 works and no one can really stop him from driving without fouling. 1 second on the clock I go with Thompson he is currently the best catch and shoot player and is often over looked. Run a screen get him open for a second and he drains it.

Christmas Games should be:
1. Lakers vs Celtics -a franchise rivalry, LeBron vs Kyrie..
2. Warriors vs Rockets -a rematch from West Finals.. "IF"only CP3 wasnt injured, could they beat the Warriors??
3. Thunder vs Jazz -a rematch from 1st rd.. Westbrook vs Mitchell..
4. Spurs vs Raptors -from Leonard-DeRozan trade.. Both of players will be facing their former and also their 1st team..
5. Sixers vs Bucks -adding some East powerhouse teams on the mix.. Giannis vs Embiid..

additional:
6. Pelicans vs Blazers -1st rd rematch..
7. Twolves vs Heat -Wade(if resign) vs Butler..

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Aug 2018 14:50:52
A couple other fun matchups to watch could be 76ers vs heat, or Warriors vs Celtics.

76ers vs Heat
Embiid vs Whiteside beef, and Embiid also had a lil in game beef with Winslow over his mask in round 1 of playoffs

Warriors vs Celtics
Potential 1 in the west vs 1 in the East and potential Finals matchup preview.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 23:57:49
Assuming all of the other players on the team are average which group would pick for one game?

1. Jordan and Pippen
2.Durant and Lebron
3. Barkley, klay Thompson, and prime Rondo
4.Curry, Giannis and Derozan
5.Lowry, Drummond, Love, and McCollum
6. Magic, Ben Wallace , Ben Simmons, and prime Tony Allen
7. Walker, Booker, Jaylen Brown, Draymond, and Marc Gasol
8 Nash, Kerr, Stockton, West, and Iverson

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 01:42:50
I'd take Kobe and Shaq. Oops, they are not there. :)

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 04:09:58
Has to be 2, 3, or 4.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 04:54:13
I’d go #4 as great as 1 and 2 can be you get 3 players.
Some of the 4 packages are good but not all star studded teams can share the ball and work like the current warriors team.

Freaks athleticism and potential, Demar mid range, footwork and arsenal of attack, and the best shooter probably ever with the most range I’ve ever seen

Sign me up.

Or probably lebron and Durant lol how can you not.

3 couldn't work. Barkley will kill rondo.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2018 14:55:37
I would take Westbrook, Thompson, and Davis. Any of them could go for 50 any night, and they would b a P&R nightmare. But from your list Prob 4.

Durant when finished his career will be on this list.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2018 02:27:37
Durant could easily if he can still ball a few years after 35. Durant scores so easily and is a lengthy defender. He'll be up there if all goes well in the latter years.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2018 17:43:43
I think for me to put Durant in the top 10, he would need to either win a title away from the Warriors or finish top 5 alltime in points scored. I think, I’ll always hold the jump to the Warriors against him unless he can get a title on his own team. I don’t mind the super team stuff, but to go to a team that is that good and that beat you in the 7th game of conference finals is just a bad look.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 22:04:06
Raptors: J.Val, Powell

Rockets- Anderson, Nene

Agree0 Disagree4

20 Aug 2018 04:57:34
Ya raps would love to take that unmovable insane contract . or they can keep jv and compete. Powell’s 10 mill is an easier pill to swallow .
He is no world beater but before last years struggles he looked to be a solid contributor and his d is still solid

But still wouldn’t touch Anderson with a 10 f pole.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 16:28:31
Just bored here my big what if.. Make them reasonable.


The Cavs could been a dynasty.. 2011 draft Irving number one I would got Leonard number 4. Leonard was the second best sf on the big board behind Williams. There need was a sf they has Andy and Jamison to play pf at that time. Make a trade for pick 29 ave draft butler. So next year they could won that coin toss and drafted Davis. Then eventually got king james back.
Irving butler Leonard James Davis. 15 16 17 18 champs

Agree1 Disagree4

19 Aug 2018 18:46:50
You could do a what if for basically every team and have a dynasty.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 16:00:23
Yeah, what if Portland had a prime Brandon Roy, a 100% healthy Greg Oden, had picked Draymond instead of Meyers Leonard, and kept Aldridge. And picked Giannis instead of McCollum.

Starting lineup of Lillard, Roy, Giannis, Draymond, and Oden. With Aldrdige off the bench.

As NBA said, you can do this with every team. Especially with the late pick guys like Green or Butler.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Aug 2018 02:49:09
What if Portland pair MJ with drexler.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2018 15:12:10
The Cavs one way more believable just take out Butler And that could happened they lost the coin toss and got waiters. Irving ad and Leonard with james joining back would been crazy.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2018 07:54:50
Caboclo is terrible but I like the gamble for the rockets who have late picks and no cap flexibility. 2 years away. Seriously this time

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2018 18:41:12
Taking into account fit together, what's the best 10 man rotation in today's league?

I'd go

Curry/Harden
Leonard/ Thompson
Durant/George
Lebron/ Antetokounmpo
Davis/Gobert



This is assuming Leonard is healthy and close to the same player. My back up 4 and 5 came down to Giannis, Gobert, and Green. I chose Giannis over Green for his offensive ability and freak athleticism and Gobert, because it gives you an ability to play big. Multiple players on the team could give you something close to Draymond and that can't really be said about Gobert. I chose George over Butler because he's the better shooter. I considered Chris Paul at point, because of his defense. Then reconsidered because you could throw Lebron at point for stretches if you wanted to go defense heavy. Also, because Harden is an offensive machine and Curry's range just gives the opposing team to much area to cover. Westbrook is probably a top 5 or 10 player, but his lack of ability without the ball seems like a bad fit next to most of these guys imo.

Agree0 Disagree1

17 Aug 2018 19:27:00
Jokic/ Embid
Davis/ Lbj
Giannis/ Durant
Thompson/ Butler
Irving/ Paul.

Agree0 Disagree3

17 Aug 2018 19:59:24
I do same as yours just switch harden for Irving.

Agree3 Disagree0

17 Aug 2018 23:12:05
Starting lineup: Curry, Durant, Giannis, Lebron, Davis. Guard a lineup that Lebron is the second smallest player. That size (without being “bigs”) is unstoppable on both ends of the court.

Reserves: Harden, Klay Thompson, Leonard (assuming he’s 100%), Lillard (homer pick), Gobert. A bunch of great shooters and two of the best defenders in the NBA. All of those guys can play off the ball to the ball dominant starters.

Agree3 Disagree0

18 Aug 2018 01:35:56
Curry/ Kyrie
Harden/ Thompson
Lebron/ Kawhi
Durant/ Davis
Embiid/ Kat.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2018 15:15:09
I'd play AD at 4.

Steph, birdie
Harden Thompson
Kd, Kawhi
Lebron, AD
Gobert and embild.

Agree0 Disagree0
