    So Morey got the all star he wanted after all. Much better than settling for someone like CJ.

    Who do you love more, Collins, Holmgren or Olynyk “who makes Aldridge (in his prime) expendable”? Lmao

    I don’t hate any of them. Collins is the only one I’ve met - Lillard’s private BDAY party - and basketball wise, I like Collins, but think he commits some really dumb and lazy fouls. Holmgren I’ve said I’m waiting for the ncaa tournament, where they won’t have the 150th ranked SOS.

    Harden is shell of his former self. He quites anytime things get tough but guess so did Simmons.

    He’s a much bigger idiot than I thought. Sean Marks should get NBA Executive of the Year for making Morey look so freaking bad…….

    Wow. I would think Ben for Harden straight would do.
    Still, Embid got his help.

    They have the 15th ranked strength of schedule right now.

    Sabonis is my favorite. Was also a big JP Bautista fan

    Yeah but I don't think he would care about picks etc. Harden is better than CJ+RoCo for example.

    One baby traded for the other? And 76’ers get two firsts!

    which team reaches this year’s finals?

    Neither would be excellent!!

    I was talking about his insistence of getting a "superstar" for Simmons. He did

    I don’t know what ranks you’re using but KenPom has them 138. ESPN has them at 90 something.

    Doesn’t matter though. I’ll wait for the tourney for Chet.

    Man, the Eastern Conference Playoffs is gonna be tough! Milwaukee, Brooklyn, Philly, Miami and Chicago. Boston even turning it on recently.

    The power has definitely shifted to back to the East.

    Majority of the bigs get foul trouble hell how games Nurk foul out. Zach did a good when got his 4th to dial down so show me he knows what going on when he gets to that point.

    But which team will reach the finals? In my book, that team wins the trade! But looking at it face value, no question Nets huge winners on paper

    Yet Phoenix, GSW and Memphis are all arguably superior to anything the East has. They may have more "contenders", but the West's top tier is still higher.

    He took more than half of the fucking season to figure this shit out... not a good look. Then you say he got his all star and he did but instead of getting a ton back with a guy like CJ he had to give up Seth who had been playing really well and 2 first round picks. So I don't know... he has to re-sign and definitely overpay Harden this off season most likely ending up with a Wall/Westbrook type of millstone deal just hanging on the team once Harden is washed. So he better just hope that the guys he now has and Doc can win it all to make it worth it. If they lose to Brooklyn in the playoffs he definitely didn't win in this situation and even if they beat them he gave up the young player for an older player and gave up 2 firsts.

    It's all worth it if they can win a chip though.

    Harden opted in so he can do two title runs and then release him if it doesn't work out. This is a very well calculated all in in my opinion.
