Yep. 17/10 for Duke. Reminds of a white Deandre Jordan.

Bogs seems good, he can play within an offense. His game is similar to Paul Pierce. Hes someone I could see the Spurs making look good. Floor spacing this year compared to last will be amazing

Could ne a good trade piece, on draft night a lot of teams wanted him, but shyed away do to buyout issues

Re: NBA Off-season: I'm 50/50, I mean I'm signing with the Rockets.

Speaking of international players...I wonder when Nikola Mirotic will come over to play for the Bulls. He seems like a quality big but I'd assume he won't come over until Boozer is gone and the Bulls roll with a PF rotation of Gibson & Mirotic.

I've been hearing next offseason. He seems impressive, but it's hard to tell until he does come and play in the NBA.

Isn't it like an "open secret" that the Bulls are going to amnesty Boozer in the 2014 offseason?

Yeah, I'm hyped for when he is finally in a Bulls uniform. Dude is a great stretch four.

The rather low rebounding numbers he has posted his career does worry me, because the Bulls have always been a team to get the hustle baskets and generally dominate the boards.

Defense is also a big ? for me, since I've never heard anything concerning it, so I'm kind of assuming Boozer-levels.

Re: NBA Off-season: Splitter making 9 mil...da fuq?

idk, I'm with notorious in that I just believe someone will dethrone them because history suggests and the fatigue was setting in late this season. It is exceptionally hard to go to four finals in a row and I really don't think you're even taking that into consideration.

Nash and Kobe was the Lakers backcourt, Calderon/Harden are not any better on the defensive side of the ball. It would cause a lot of problems and I know that from experience, Dwight can't handle the whole defense by himself.

I'm not going to sit here and say Houston won't win a championship as that's just being ignorant. It could happen, they may not be the favourite but I don't think there's that many teams that are better. Let's see what else happens here as they have one more trade or signing to make. Maybe more.
I said they won't win with their current cast and without a playmaker. Unless they develop a system similar to the Spurs or the triangle they can not win without a playmaker imo as they would need one to setup and run the offense with Harden/Dwight.

Quote:
As far as Dwight not wanting to win, I think he does. I don't think you can look at a pairing of Dwight and D-Will and say that Dwight wouldn't get giddy at the possibilities for that team. Anyone would have been giddy over this pairing 2 years ago, D-Will hasn't been as good recently but I think he has a bounce back year this year. Maybe not though. Brooklyn has ownership that CLEARLY wants to win as well. Dallas, idk. They won a championship without Dwight, they obviously would have been a lot better this year w/ Dwight but not a championship team. They have a GREAT owner though and a great tradition of winning at least recently so I don't see why I wouldn't be an appealing destination if you're looking to win.
I don't think he doesn't care about winning at all. All players, except maybe Bynum(LEL and a few other stat focused ones) care about winning to some degree. But he said ALL HE CARES ABOUT IS WINNING. That is absolutely and completely untrue in every way. Like I said, if that was the case there would have been better options for him to have forced a trade to than the lakers/dallas/bulls.

They called him the Lion of Lannister to his face...

...and whispered "Kingslayer" behind his back

Re: NBA Off-season: I'm 50/50, I mean I'm signing with the Rockets.

What I'm saying is, Cuban and PROK are both very dedicated to winning. It's not all about winning that season it's putting yourself in an organization that has a dedication to winning and the Lakers and Dallas definitely fit that bill and Brooklyn looks to be headed in that direction. OKC hasn't won anything, can't attract FAs. Chicago, idk. Was Chicago ever even a serious option?

Someone will knock off the Heat. I can't tell you who because I genuinely have no clue but if I were betting, I'm betting against the Heat threepeating.

Threepeating in itself is so difficult but winning 3 of 4 consecutive Finals series is extremely, extremely rare in the NBA for a reason. Hasn't been done in almost 50 years and I don't think the Heat are the team to do it.

Wade's health is definitely going to be the X-factor, and his continually degrading jumper is too.

Speaking of that, how did it become so shit in the last few years? Back in his 09' season, it was completely wet.

Now, he gets Larry Hughes comparisons from his own fans.
