Kings have such a weird roster. On one hand you got about 12 young players who need minutes to develop and a roster clearly built to tank for their 2018 pick as they lose the one next year anyway, on the other hand they acquire Hill, Randolph and Carter, three experienced players who will want to win games because they don't have 5 years to wait before Fox, Hield and Cauley-Stein. And this season won't be that favourable for tanking teams with a lot of dross around the league. You need true dedication to finish bottom in 2018 and signing Hill and Randolph isn't that.
^ They need the vets around to keep all those youngsters from developing bad habits.
I can't believe I just said that about Randolph.
Good point. Carter in particular looks like someone they will look up to, he is probably a player the likes of Fox and Hield grew up idolising.
No, but so what? Again: the Spurs are consistently greater than the sum of their parts.
Clearly Mark was talking about his SPANISH LEAGUE playoff experience...
LMA is crediting Pop for how well he's is playing now. "It all goes to him." Now that is a TOTALLY BELIEVABLE statement that everything is all right.
They're planning for 2019 - those "vets" are signed for 2 or less years (except Hill). WITH Hill, In 2 years their salary cap will be at $55 mil which should give them about $60 mil for free agency. If they dump Hill, they'll have enough $$$ to sign 2 max free agents to go with Fox, Hield, Jackson, and Cauley-Stein.
Just watched some of the Philly-Brooklyn game. Embiid is a monster. Hope he stays healthy, because if so he's easily the best center playing today, and a top 5 player in the league. He's elite on offense AND defense. Makes everyone better around him.
Philly is going to be fun to watch.
Bro you can;t just STEAL my takes!
Fair game FAMS.
Crabbe 1-8 tonight, but 7-7 from the line.
Yes but it is Saric who I wish we had on our team. 10-14 (5-8 from 3) and 9 boards......off the bench. (although I certainly would not mind having Simmons either)
5 year, 147 million for Wiggins? Holy Shit
You can't steal this from me. I said Minny will be a damn good team this season...... the Sixers would lose a bunch, but be a real fun team to watch and we will finish 41-41.
I used to want Saric, but I don't think he'd work well with Nurkic. Simmons would be AWESOME.
You know who the Sixers could really use? CJ. They could start him at the 1 and play Simmons at F. Until Simmons learns to shoot just a little he's going to be a weak link (albeit an awesome one).
