    I just read a tweeter that Simons has the most made 3’s of anyone in his first 30 starts.
    113 made as a starter. That seems pretty good beings he was pretty much the main scoring threat in most of those starts.

    You said they moved tons of picks but that didn't happen in 2008 (or 2007). It was one pick for Allen and Al Jefferson for KG basically. So no, I didn't know what the fuck you were talking about.

    The Reddit comments are actually kinda funny… and accurate. The Nets are gonna leak every little negative thing about him if he’s truly on the outs.

    “Harden is a selfish teammate because he wants Irving to play” lol

    NBA purgatory is when a team is good enough to make the playoffs but not good enough to legitimately contend... thats where the Blazers have been for years. If they trade away Dame during this next year for draft assets and or young talent, they are likely to be bad in the short term which would result in better draft assets. Of course having draft capital isn't a guaranteed way to land elite talent and past examples of elite talent slipping to the middle of the draft and below can be produced, but it improves a team's odds of doing so. Instead of purgatory, they'd likely suck and then hopefully rise up.

    I don't understand how people fail to comprehend this.

    Problem is you likely rise up to where you were before. Sixers still haven’t made it out of the 2nd round.

    OKC made it to the finals. Spurs made it to multiple titles.

    Embiid is a superstar. Harden is on the downswing but I think he will do better next year.

    Maxey looks great. Harris is overpaid but fine.

    Sixers made some blunders along the way, but they will probably do a lot better than us next year.

    Just think if they would have kept Butler.....

    It makes me chuckle when people point to them as a reason the process fails. They haven't met expectations. But they definitely had opportunities and just mucked it up along the way.

    The process isn't foolproof. The draft is the tried and true way for a small market to get star players.

    I selectively edited your post to my liking :-)

    Seriously, outside of James going home to Cleveland when was the last time a star went to a small market in Free Agency?

    Hiring Doc was also a huge mistake.

    It's not foolproof. You have to draft well. Golden State. OKC. Spurs.

    If Sacramento drafts well this time and takes Keegan or Ivey....
