Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Don't really need him to run the point exclusively. Rondo plays like 39 minutes a game, in those 9 minutes he's not playing the role of distributing the ball and playing point will be split between Pierce (Point forward something he was successful at last year), JET, Lee and I guess now Barbosa.

Like I said Barbosa will only play if one of main 4 guards is hurt, just a signing for some depth and injury insurance. Low risk, high reward if he plays well.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

the same way the countless number of high profile players in the past haven't gone to the Lakers?

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

No superstar players who came to the Lakers from another team were in the position LeBron is in.

Dwight was playing with a bunch of scrubs on a small market team.
Shaq was playing on a small market team that wasn't good enough to win a title.
Kareem was playing with a bunch of scrubs on a small market team.
Pau was playing on a small market team with a bunch of scrubs and a very young and inexperienced Rudy Gay.

LeBron? Just the best player in the NBA on a large market perennial contending team with two other All-Stars and one of the best GM's in the NBA.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

lol @ that. you said a day ago that Wade is already regressing and the guy will be two years older at that time. hell, he could retire as soon as his contract ends, which isn't too far down the road.

Not only that, but playing with Bosh and a regressed Wade is not better than playing with DWIGHT in his prime.

And why wouldn't Lebron want to go from a large market to one of the BIGGEST markets in the league/world?

Sure Pat Riley is great, but Lakers have a FAR better track record of big time success and it's not like Mitch isn't an amazing GM himself.


So basically Lebron going to the Lakers would be an improvement in every perspective. of course I'm not saying he will go to the Lakers, he could end up with any contender to be honest, but don't act like there isn't a good chance of him leaving when there certainly is. You act as if the guy is loyal.

I'll bet any money LeBron won't leave Miami. Especially if he wins another ring or two.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Austin Rivers preseason stats so far:
9.0 PPG on 29/14/75 shooting, 3.6 RPG, 1.6 APG, 1.4 SPG in 30.2 MPG.

I don't care if it's preseason, there's no excuse for that.

You expected more? Rivers has always been a very selfish combo guard who scores in bunches when he gets hot. He has never had good court vision, commonly missing open looks down low for Plumlee at Duke. Thing is, when he gets cold, he doesn't notice it and keeps shooting. You could say this is a good thing because maybe he is getting good looks and the ball isn't falling in the net.



Sadly its not. Rivers becomes the biggest black-hole and will try to force any and every shot until something goes down.

But Cult, I thought Rivers was a really good player? He was drafted 10th overall!?

I know, young child, but he really wasn't that good to begin with and was carried by the hype machine after that good game at North Carolina, highlighting the game winning three. The Hornets must have thought Rivers was going to be Stephen Curry with a bit worse shooting and no injury problems, which is a really good player.

But the glaring problem is, Curry was a legit beast in college, averaging a cool 45/41/87 in shooting.

Now lets look over at Rivers one and only year at Duke before he hopped over to the NBA, and you will see a very good statline 43/37/65. Oh wow, that reminds me of Stephen Curr- wait no it doesn't.




From my diagnosis, Austin Rivers suffers from a severe case of Chucker's Syndrome, a very common disease seen in the NBA. Right now, there isn't a known cure to the ailment, and the only way to overcome it is to actually be worth a crap.

My prognosis, Austin Rivers of the New Orleans Hornets will not be able to overcome this, being not good enough to get the job done, or smart enough to notice this isn't really working.
