Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Wojnarowski said that Minnesota is willing to offer Derrick Williams and Martell Webster in a S&T deal with Portland for Batum, and that Portland would reject it. I don't really get it with Batum. He's a good player, but I don't see anything to indicate that he could be great. Williams has as much potential as anyone in the league; I'd do that deal if I were Portland.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

What really happened for this great falling out b/w Portland and Batuuuuum?

Batum will always be a better fantasy player than actual player. And that's good enough for me.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

I wouldn't give Batum that contract. And I don't think Williams will amount to much in the NBA, think he'll be at best a 6th man, of course he can always prove me wrong but I have low expectations for him. And Martell Webster is a scrub, so no I don't blame Portland I'd reject that ish too.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

How can anyone hate the Raptors? Wouldn't that be like hating the Detroit Lions in football? They've never done anything to hurt y'all.

I'd LOVE to see the Raptors become a threat... it would be great for the NBA in my opinion.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Williams is incredibly gifted and can become great if given the chance/minutes. Minny is a terrible fit for him because, well, Minny is a terrible fit for all wing players.

And if Raptors get Iggy then I'll be watching all of their games for sure this season. Them getting Lowry might already make the the case.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Except Williams isn't a wing player.

He has no position, he sucks at PF and he doesn't have the skills to be a successful SF.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Your point?

I'd take Batum over Green too if that's what you're asking.

And yeah Jeff Green was just absolutely awful at PF right? Is that why he was a 15 PPG on a playoff team playing PF? Ok fine if you don't think Jeff will ever be a star player, I don't think he will either but this BS myth that he's some scrub is idiotic.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Pretty sure Williams could average 15 PPG too if given enough shots.
