  1. yeah...but RonArtest had some good points. I still think the guy is a bum and I don't think he'll change, but this draft is horrible and it is worth the risk if you can build the trade around that pick. ---------- Post added March-29th-2013 at 03:18 PM ---------- I'd take either Carter-Williams (we need a back up PG) or Plumlee (every team need an energy bigman).....this draft is so terrible though...I really wish we could get some sort of value from trading the pick (but it is doubtful). ---------- Post added March-29th-2013 at 03:19 PM ---------- Cleveland isn't making the playoffs
  2. I can agree with that....fair assessment...I don't think you keep both Nene and Okafor if Cousins comes to town though. That is way too much money invested into three starting caliber front court players. Not really sure who you get rid of there....I think Nene is a better overall player than Okafor, but Okafor's contract is ending soon and he will not get as much as Nene gets. Also think Okafor is strictly a Center and Nene is interchangeable in the two positions. Okafor seems to be a bigger locker room influence from what I read. I guess it would depend on what Sacramento would want bac
  3. It isn't just about this season..it is about mentality. The guy has never seen a shot he didn't like...it has to do with discipline (something Cousins doesn't have and might never have). I will agree with you that if he worked out anywhere, this would likely be the spot (because of the Wall ties)...he'd probably also work out in LAC, MIA, or Boston because of the veteran leadership/coaching there. I definitely agree that he could not only be the best offensive 5 in the game, but he has the tools to be the best center in the game period. I agree with most of what you said, I'm just not will
  4. It isn't about basketball IQ....if anything his baskeball IQ is higher than the average player....he has pretty good positioning when he is playing defense on the wing...problem is he gets into foul trouble when marking down low because of his lack of strength. ---------- Post added March-29th-2013 at 12:40 PM ---------- The problem with Cousins is he doesn't go 100% all the time and he has a serious attitude problem. He is a cancer, I want him no where near my team. He also insists on shooting long jumpers (like Blatche) and has a terrible FG% for a Center. He has no business playing t
  5. I meant to repeat what he said (month) not game.....Jan rarely even gets into a game. Here's the thing....a basketball team can have up to 15 players on its roster. Only 12 of those players can be activated during the game. Out of those 12...usually only 8-9 of those players get rotation minutes. The rest of the spots on the team can be used for younger development players who may not play now, but will in the future. It makes absolutely no sense to get rid of a 22 year old 7 footer on a rookie contract. Jan can't shoot, we all know that. Jan is weak for his position, we all know that
  6. Anyone can get stronger by hitting the weight room (and Jan has a large frame, so he could definitely put on some weight)....the problem is the team brought him in expecting to play him at the 3.....he isn't a 3..he is a 4/5. As far as him only playing 10-20 minutes per game...that is on Wittman (along with Grunfeld...Wittman is hindering the development of this team...both need to go right away). A 7 footer always has a position...it is up to the coaching staff and the player to be sure he gains the strength to play down low.
  7. in basketball, big men don't typically fully develop until they are 27. I think it would be a bad decision to cut ties with someone who could possibly develop. Jan can't shoot and makes some bad plays, but he is also a freakishly athletic 7 footer...those don't grow on trees. In the grand scheme of things, 4 million is not that much money in the NBA....we are already going to be 10 million under the projected cap (with him on the team). The only way you don't keep him is if you have the opportunity to sign some one much better and need that 4 million in cap space to get the deal done.
  8. I don't think I'd let him walk. We invested a 6th round pick in Vesely...I'd keep him through his rookie contract. Obviously you don't re-sign him after that if he doesn't improve, but I wouldn't decline the team option.
  9. I want no part of zeller....oladipo would be a perfect fit on this team though. We could use depth at guard.
  10. I was trying to figure out what kind of deal Okafor would get...I was thinking something like 3 years, 27 million. As far as Ariza...I don't see him back unless he really wants to stay and takes less. I don't think Ariza is worth the MLE at this point...he is way too inconsistent. Not to mention we will likely use the MLE this year to keep Webster; so we wont be able to use it in two years when Ariza is a free agent. Wall shouldn't get max money based on the body of his work and what other point guards have recently gotten. I expect him to get something in the ballpark of 4 years, 48 mil
  11. Even though I'm a huge Nene fan, I wonder if Indiana would trade Granger for Nene. We could replace Nene in this year's draft with whatever big man falls to us and add much needed scoring. The question is how bad would our defense suffer losing Nene. If Granger didn't work out, he'd be an expiring deal that year along with Okafor and Ariza....we'd be major players for a jackpot 2014 free agency class.
  12. This game sucks...no fun to watch, so I've been looking up random ****. Fun fact....the Indiana Pacers are the best defensive team in the last 10 years of NBA play. Only San Antonio has been better in the past 14 years. Indian is currently holding opponents to a ridiculous .414% shooting from the field. San Antonio gave up .409 in 2003. To give you guys some numbers to compare to.... this year: OKC .428 GS/Wash .428 (tied for 3rd in the league) Cle .478 (worse in the league) worse in the past 14 years...get this...it is hilarious...2005 Toronto .491. To put that into perspective
  13. You think Ted is going to pay for offseason training and facilities? ---------- Post added March-27th-2013 at 04:07 PM ---------- I can't take credit for this....one of my buddies pointed this out...but Vesely is not a 3/4....he is a 4/5. he needs to put on muscle weight and learn some post moves...focus on defense and rebounding....that's the only shot he has of being anything in the NBA. ---------- Post added March-27th-2013 at 04:11 PM ---------- I'd be more excited if it was a home game...I'm still going to watch and still slightly excited to see how Wall follow's his Monday perf
  14. NO WAY....Nene is one of the most valuable players on this team. I don't think the casual fan understands all he does. Nene is the best defender on the team, he has a high basketball IQ, he is one of the better post passers in the game, and he is a very capable post scorer. I get it on the injuries and the contract.....I do think he is slightly overpayed...not by much though...big men are a premium in the NBA. We actually have a big man who is also skilled ( a lot of teams can't say this). I doubt Nene will miss nearly as many games next year when we are in the hunt the whole year. It do
