    That roster construction is just weird.

    Paid 15 mil for an out of place Ariza and have no PGs of note.

    I would trade anybody not named Dame for Luka. The kid is going to be special!

    Atlanta will regret that trade forever.

    Ariza move makes no sense. And they brought in Ryan Anderson right? Two vets that are just going to take up valuable minutes that could go to players that need time to develop. Unless they just look at them as assets?
    And that team just a few years ago had an abundance of PGs.

    He reminds me of Kukoc.

    All the folks picking the Spurs to finish top 4 in the West need to revise their projections. It's going to be a battle to get the 8th seed for them.

    DeJounte was clutch against the Blazers in the last game they played against each other in the regular season. The Spurs already lost Kyle Anderson to the Grizz, Parker to the Hornets and Manu to retirement. Patty Mills is going to have to play 40 minutes per night.

    This news comes a day after we find out that Lonnie Walker tore his meniscus.

    Man, Lamarcus can't catch a break with these injury riddled teammates.

    The Spurs deal with the devil for that Tim Duncan ping pong ball has now come due.

    Also sounds like Roberson is out for at LEAST another two months for OKC - we're getting some help here early.

    Phoenix can't get out of their own way. Not to say that McDonough was doing a good job but firing a GM right before the season starts after letting him build the team all summer is just weird. Bad teams either need to get really lucky or they need to stick with a plan and not interfere.

    I'd call that a Freudian slip, not a mistake.
