    Mainly because of the Garden. It's the best basketball arena with the smartest fans, I think. I mean, you get brief runs like Linsanity or Amare Stoudemire's first 60 games, and it always feels like your watching a playoff game. I think it's the only arena that can create a playoff vibe in the regular season. The Lakers fans can't do that, because they are too spoiled.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    1. Uijiri turns down the Wizards' offer. 2. Wizards panic and hire Danny Ferry. 3. A viral video of an argument between Ferry and a black waiter in Georgetown goes viral and Ferry resigns before the season starts. 4. Ernie is back!!!

    This I do agree with. That should be calculated into the total salary.

    I find this ludicrous. The super team that is triggering this is the freaking Warriors - one of the three worst franchises in the league for the past 40 years. There is no reason to believe that once Steph's ankles finally shut down that all the Silicon Valley money in the world is going to keep them at the top of the league. The super team that rode along side them for four years was freaking Cleveland. They are never going to be good again. We all know this. The prior super team was the Heat. They are a rotting husk. The prior super team was the Lakers. They probably will be good again. Or they may become the Knicks - West. Also, James Dolan related issues aside, the Knicks getting Davis and Irving would be great. The league is more fun when the Knicks are in one of their rare good periods. Also, that's bound to end in absolute disaster, which will also be fun.

    If you are going to rebuild an NBA system, how about no cap, but for each "max" contract you sign over a certain number (say 2), you lose a #1 pick in one of the next 2 drafts. So New York can sign Durant, Davis, Kemba, and whoever else, but they have no draft picks for the next two seasons. Or maybe every time that you sign a FA from a team, that team gets your next available, #1 pick. That could actually incentivize New Orleans into keeping Davis for a year and trying to sell him on a future with Zion, if they were going to get the Knicks or Lakers #1 pick in 2020. (You would have to do free agency before the draft). This also would have killed the Lebron back to Cleveland move as the Heat would have taken that #1 overall pick instead of it being a trade piece for Minnesota.

    I've rather enjoyed Lebron playing with good players. I really wish I'd been talking to McQueen on this board when the Lakers traded for Mychael Thompson. I may have joined him in storming the league office that day. Soooooo mad. I need someone to explain why all the power in the league should reside with James Dolan and Jerry Reinsdorf and not Lebron, Durant, etc.

    Until 8 years ago, wasn't Golden State considered small market? And while Toronto is a huge city, I think every NBA player and fan considers it as a frozen wasteland. This big market/small market thing makes no sense to me in the NBA, because the Knicks are never good and never sign anyone and never keep anyone. Chicago hasn't really been good in 20 years. They never sign anyone. The Lakers were the best-run team in sports for 40 years. And they were great. They have been the worst run team for a decade and they suck. The Eastern Conference Finals was the former garbage fires of Milwaukee and Toronto.

    So Lebron would just be trapped on Cleveland with Ricky Davis as his best teammate for the rest of his natural life? We have seriously just had two of the most fun mini-dynasties in sports history (Heat and Warriors) with one of the more remarkable long-term sporadic dynasties we've ever seen. And you guys are mad about it. I honestly don't get it. Since 2001, we had Shaq and Kobe implode. Both win titles without the other. The Spurs sustain their excellence as the team that wins when someone else can't. The Pistons make Rasheed a champion. The Celtics re-emerge. Lebron. The Big 3 in Miami. Dirk. The Warriors. And now Kawhi. Meanwhile, in the sport McQueen wants the NBA to copy, it's been the Patriots. Every year. Until we die.

    I still think that we are trying to solve a problem that does not exist. I'm sorry the Wizards have sucked every year since 1979. I truly am. But maybe the problem is within that organization and not in the league as a whole. Seriously, how many teams in NBA history have drafted two All Star level guards within a few years of each other and still ended up as the single most hopeless team in the league while not actually losing those two players? It's remarkable. The Warriors had a five year run. That almost certainly seems over. The Celtics had a 13 year run in the 50s and 60s. The Lakers had a 12 year run in the 80s and 90s. The Bulls would have had a 10 year run had Jordan not left to play baseball and then left because their ownership was insane. There's a legit chance at a Clippers-Bucks Finals next year. What exactly are we trying to stop?

    I was reading the posts around the time of the Kawhi thread. Shocking nuanced discussion for this group. You had 14 separate positions, but they were all very nuanced as well.

    I'll book this match. The big problem with wild turkeys is that they are stupid as ****. A coyote or a bobcat will see a person and generally decide that it's not worth the risk. There's a rabbit somewhere that needs devoured. A turkey sees you and is immediately thinking, "Charge!!!!" It could be coming over to be your friend or eat your eyes or discuss the weather. And it will forget before it gets there.

    In a deciding Finals game on the road, Kyle Lowry put up a 26/7/10, shot 57 percent from the three point line, had three steals, and +/- of +16 in a four point win. I love the NBA so so so much.

    I've been chased by a wild turkey. (And I've chased Wild Turkey but that's a different story). Those birds are the Thomas Hearnses of the animal kingdom. They look physically ridiculously, but they will **** you up.

    Somewhere General Manager Steve McQueen is looking at his three year plan to be good once the Warriors begin to decline and is weeping openly.

    Don't screw with me. This is the greatest moment in sports history if that's the case.
