  1. Only way I'd max out beal is if the appeal of wall/beal can draw a big time FA. then I sign big FA and then max out Beal like the spurs did w/ leonard. But otherwise I give beal a sub max contract or let him walk or sign and trade. Even if Beal develops into prime Joe Johnson or Mitch Richmond it won't be enough. He's not a Kobe Bryant type player and now a days if your highest paid/ top player is a joe Johnson/ Mitch Richmond caliber player, then you are not a good team and you are stuck in NBA purgatory. top it all off w/ his injury history no way I'm doing this. Finally the no
  2. My biggest concern is whether or not the team has a plan for his development and are they committed to it. RW's statement about the league changing and inferring the GSW were the model of small ball, kind of scares me. Only because it makes me think that we may try to take his 7'2 wingspan and make him play the 4. I recall Blatche and even Chris Singleton flip flopping from season to season at the 3 and 4 and frankly I think it really hurt their game. Now you could argue that those 2 clowns were going to bust anyways, but I do think it hindered them. And you could argue that the clima
  3. I'd trade for cousins in a heartbeat. shooters are way easier to find then legit bigs. and if EG has a strength its finding wingmen. As for the draft i'm i'd love Frank the Tank or Portis but I don't think they'll be there. after that its a crap shoot. I'd probably lean Looney, grant and then Anderson.
  4. I guess is see it different. 09-10 was not a rebuild year. It was a push to get the big 3 over the top. Gil was a top tier scoring PG and a guy like steph curry wasn't going to contribute immediately. Time was running out on the big 3 so EG swung for the fences. Miller and foye were key pieces to championship teams. Just not here. Biggest mistake EG made was believing in Gilbert. I'm guilty of that too. But I guess it was obvious at the time to many of u that Gil was finished. He had most of the city fooled. I'll give u blatche was a terrible signing, but u also had to look at the state of
  5. I don't get all the hate people still have for EG and RW. RW out coached Thibs last year. And arguably out coached both coaches this post season. In crunch time when every possession counts look at the plays the wiz execute out of TO's. We always got a great shot. Meanwhile coach of the year was having a hard time inbounding the ball. Even the back breaking play by Horford was more a great play by him then something that was drawn up. Furthermore this notion that RW didn't realize a stretch 4 would open things up until the playoffs is laughable. Ask yourself then why did we have gooden
  6. We do need another scorer that can create his own shot but it doesn't need to be a superstar. Dj Augustine plays that role with Chicago and Nate Robinson played it for them before that. There are specialists out there that can score in bunches and they don't necessarily need to be high paid or high profile.
  7. My thoughts are as excited as we are about this season, the truly promising thing is that wall and beal are in their early 20's. Realistically our window is in 3-5 years. Our superstars will be polished and in thier prime and hopefully Bron will be on the decline. Any drastic moves before then would be impulsive and stupid. That's not to say if opportunity knocks we can't consider, but I say let's not reach. 1. Have to lock in Gortat. 2. I would love to keep Ariza but not at the price of losing flexibility and not able to max out beal when that time comes. I'd love to give him a big sh
  8. Bradley Beal looked timid and terrible early in his rookie year. not saying Porter is going to be Beal, but lets just wait and see.
  9. Wiz just need to get healthy. Webster and Harrington will come off the bench and hopefully porter can contribute by Feb.
  10. kyrie avg. the same TO's/ game. less assists and plays no D and wall has been hurt all season. Cleveland is a terrible team, yet Kryie is a smart player w/ feel and wall sucks? right. the only differnece is Kyrie can shoot. please.... not saying wall is going to be great. but his argument sucks.
  11. kyrie irving sat out most of the season at duke and still was the #1 pick. it might not hurt his stock.
  12. to me the biggest improvement in walls game is his control and his tempo. last year he was 100 MPH all the time. now he dictates the pace of the game. He picks his spots and uses the change of tempo to his advantage. This is why he is finishing at the hoop. he is staying under control and getting to spots not by his speed but his ability to start and stop. he definitley needs to improve his J and limit his turnovers but the fact that he still can have a huge impact on the game despite his short comings is extremely promising. Look at the list of 10 PG's above that are perceived
  13. agreed. only seen him 3 or 4 games and he hasn't impressed me.
