Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

He's crying while watching a video of his own recovery? If he can't handle that emotionally, how can he handle carrying an entire team and fan base to a title?

C. Paul/E. Bledsoe
C. Billups/J. Crawford/W. Green/T. Leslie
C. Butler/G. Hill/M. Barnes
B. Griffin/L. Odom/T. Thompkins
D. Jordan/R. Turiaf/R. Hollins

I really don't see any improvement from last season and by that I mean I can't see this roster doing more than being a 4th-5th seed and being a 2nd round exit.
They improved ALOT.

1. Billups will be back and healthy. They were 18-8 with him.
2. Crawford/Odom can be huge for them if they play well and stay healthy.
3. They added better defensive pieces to throw out at Kobe and Durant.
4. They downgraded by getting rid of Evans and Martin but they have size now instead of a bench of two 6'9 guys. Turiaf is a 6'10 shot blocker, Hollins is a 7'0 shot blocker.
5. They added veteran leaders with Billups, Hill.

Last season they had:

Paul/Bledsoe
Billups/Foye/Williams
Butler/Gomes/Simmons
Griffin/Evans
Jordan/Jones

They upgraded significantly this season. I see them as a 3rd seed that could sneak into the WCF if the Lakers or Thunder get hit by an injury.

Oh shit, Jamal? I assumed it was suck ass Jordan, Jamal off the bench/Billups insurance is a different story. Always been a Crawford fan if he's in the right role.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

The Supersonics are on the verge of returning to the NBA.

Quote:
Chris Hansen and the city of Seattle have an agreement to build a new arena, an important step in bringing an NBA team back to the area to play under the Sonics' name.

“It means a lot to the NBA,” Hansen said. “They’ve been watching very close to what we’re doing. I think going in they were very skeptical we would get to this point given our history in Seattle.

“It’s a great win for the city with the league.”

Hansen is cautioning the optimism that a team could be in Seattle by next season.

“I think it’s conceivable, that would be optimistic and that is not an expectation I would not want to set,” he said. “I worry that people are expecting us to get this deal done and it be like magic and a team would be here this year. It’s like, ‘Poof and we’ve got a deal done and where is our team?’ This is a far more difficult process. I think anybody who is intimately familiar with the NBA knows this is a tough next face we have to go through.”

The leading candidate to move to Seattle and turn into the Sonics would be the Sacramento Kings, the second candidate and long shot would be Memphis Grizzlies.

We still got Babbitt, LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUKE.


Also, the Blazers should just move to Seattle, Portland wants to be Seattle's little sister clone and everything, might as well steal what they have.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

This Sam Cassel situation is interesting because apparently the NCAA is cracking down on High Schools or Prep Schools when it comes to faking grades and all of that. They denied his son eligibility because he attends a school on the NCAA's watch list, so he's raging.

Vancouver getting a team would be SICK.
