Lebron + athletic shooters is real and always has been. I never really doubted peak Lebron would show up for the playoffs but the active negatives on the roster (Thomas, Rose and to a much lesser...

It was already easy for them to clear enough cap room for 2 max slots. They had to trade Clarkson's contract and cut and stretch Deng. Clarkson's contract is bad like almost every 2016 summer...

Coach/GM combined powers have all sorts of perverse incentives when the guy isn't desperate to keep his job, but get way worse when he is desperate.

I'm not sure why Detroit had to throw in a 1st and a 2nd to get this deal done. If this was 2 years ago on his prior contract it might make sense, but 5 years 175M for a guy who relies on...

I think Pierce/Garnett waived their no trade clause to get traded to the Nets?

Griffin did get a small trade kicker since his deal was actually a tiny bit less than the max.

I disagree. He has trended more toward playing like a big man and less like a perimeter player as he has aged and that trend will likely continue. He would not be effective as a spot shooter with...

:iatp: On one hand, at least it is not a rematch like 2011, but on the other hand if they played in the regular season we wouldn't have had 2 SEC teams in the playoffs.

If Lebron can get Wade/Rose to play good defense, especially since they will have diminished offensive roles, then the ceiling is much higher.

More important question is whether they will be as good on D as their potential. They likely will be less than sum of parts on offense but still very good. Melo can guard the weakest wing/PF on the...

They should actually be average on offense and awful on defense. They have a good amount of shooting with adding Crabbe and pretty good creation out of Lin/Russell.
