    Nope. Can't trade a player who is a pending FA.
    They potentialy could do a S&T with him in July, but Napier cannot be traded at this point.

    Aaagghhh. Ever since Olshey made excuses after his failed trade deadline, I've seen that mantra repeated on the board.

    Next time you're almost 6 (or any number of) years into a job and you suck, tell your coworkers that you're operating on a 5-year-plan. That no one remembers. That exists only in your head. See how far that gets you.

    It was TMac who was injured all the time.

    Durant is better.

    Napier will not sign a massive deal anywhere. I don't think he would be a starting point guard at any team in the league bar maybe some of the tanking teams, and they obviously won't be willing to offer huge deals to anybody. PG position is extremely strong right now so even a good player like him won't have it easy.

    Funnily he is much better than any point guard Orlando have and they let him go for nothing.

    Nope, not a chance. He is gone to Timberwolves I think. Or Wizards.

    He's going to be lost on a new generation of fans. They won't know how great Rose was because it was only for a short while. But he WAS friggin' great.

    He is on a vets minimum so only a portion of that actually counts against the cap percentage wise. Not sure if the Blazers actually need him but they do indeed have a spot available on the roster. They also could always use the veteran portion of his ability.

    If Rose didn't play well with Lebron and Kevin Love I don't see what he adds to the Blazers...he even walked away from the Cavs to deal with depression....there's a cloud over this dude's head and he's carrying some kind of weight or emotional baggage around. Can see it in his demeanor..maybe one injury too many or maybe something personal...he was a great rookie

    TJ McConnell got a triple double. Can't believe the little pale umpa lumpa did it. Bravo!

    Favorite team in the league. The Feel Good Team. We are the "bore the shit out of you, 9 dollar beer team."

    Still can't believe Dame hasn't got one yet. He never tries to go for em to his credit.

    I want to see the Spurs become a losing organization while the Blazers take turns pissing on their jerseys. But we can't have it all now can we.

    Spurs are alright. Fuck Warriors, Rockets, Clippers and Lakers. Celtics too.. That's it for me.
