    Technically, he's already there.

    So is Brown and all the rest of their teammates.

    I still want to be forum buddies despite that atrocious, terrible joke.

    If that was going to happen it would have. Phoenix have already tried to get him, but all they will offer is second rounders.

    It's funny that Kyrie essentially kicked Rozier out by announcing he was going to re-sign. If he hadn't done that Rozier might've stayed quiet this season assuming that the Celtics wouldn't want to fight the Knicks for Kyrie and he'd be the starter next year.

    Payton played better against the big, strong guards. Quick guys who never stopped moving were the most likely to give him troubles.

    Hmm. I think plenty of players CAN do that. They don't have the green light, though. Steph is no doubt a very good shooter, and possibly the best ever. But there will be as good, I have no doubt.

    So "taller Gervin" isn't unique, but "better shooting Nash" is?

    Conversely: there's nobody in the league RIGHT NOW the size of Shaq. Or Yao Ming. If Kansas-era Wilt Chamberlain was coming out of college this year, he would be a LOCK for the #1 pick (back me up BNM).

    ALSO: I'd like to see Gervin compete with Durant at HORSE. In fact, I'd like to see Curry compete with Durant at HORSE.

    After 94' new would've been getting USED. That's when the handchecking rules changed.

    Also, Payton never had to consistently pick up his man at halfcourt because that's where his range is.

    I'm afraid I must recuse myself due to a conflict of interest. The fact that I have always been a big Wilt fan may prevent me from maintaining impartiality.

    Is shooting efficiency all that matters?

    I disagree. I do not think there are many or maybe even any players that can do that consistently as Steph does.

    Sure. The Nash comparison is absurd imho. Steph can bend the entire defense because of his accuracy, volume and range. Nash's greatness was about pace and setup, Steph is very good at passing and setting up - and can play fast, but his #1 attribute is his unreal shooting performance.

    Please return your Boban fan club card on your way out of the door.

    I would like to see it as well - but it does not matter one bit when it comes to the way NBA basketball is played.

    Neighborhood block party in MIA. Whiteside with 8 BLKs in the first half. If it's in the neighborhood, he's blocking it.

    Schroder starts at PG for the Thunder: 28 pts, 7 rebounds, 0 (that's ZERO) assists. :blink:

    Reggie Jackson and Schroeder are cut from the same shitty mold.

    deliberately not shooting. This reminds me of Kobe being passive aggressive
