    you are NOT going to get a "great package deal" for CJ, he's too overpaid along with really bad defense

    The best you are going to get for CJ is a very good 15mil/year player and some expiring contracts and draft assets(s). Once his deal runs its course, he will be signed to a deal worth ~1/5 of his final salary.

    20ppg guys don’t grow on trees. There are less than 30 currently in the league and I doubt many, if any, of them are available.

    there probably would be a good deal more IF they took as made as many attempts as CJ does - TWENTY SEVEN per game avg this yr and scoring 20.5 ppg. Norm for examples averages almost 17 ppg on about SIXTEEN shots, so that 20ppg is not really anything to rave about given the volume of shots he takes.

    CJ averages 18.5 shots per game this season... what the fuck are you talking about? And I'm one of the biggest proponents of trading CJ but I won't just watch you spew out bullshit.

    Calm down, I counted the same way for Norm. I used the ESPN stats for FG's and 3's, does ESPN stats include the 3 pt stats "as part of" the FG stats? If they do then I was mistaen but I did calculate Norms the same way and was not attempting to "skew" anything. If you go just by the FG stats CJ takes 18.5 and Norm 11.7 shots per game - the ratio between them does not change much per what I previously listed.

    3 point FGs are FGs. They always have been.

    ESPN stats show the separate numbers for both 2-pointers and 3-pointers, which add up to all field goal attempts.

    27/16 and 18.5/11.7 are almost same numbers, so point was made.

    this year his efficiency is down but for his career he shoots over 45% from the field and nearly 40% from 3. He’s also been a consistent 20 point scorer since 2015. Not really a good argument you’re trying to make. Good chance those percentages will level out. He says he’s still adjusting to the seams of the new ball. And he’s not the only one saying that so it’s probably not just an excuse, but an actual adjustment.

    Only reason to say this: you hate defense!

    Nothing would satisfy me more than a blowout win tonight. Sadly don't see that happening

    Simply getting up that many shots up, let alone making them at an efficient clip is difficult.

    Do you have a pipeline to gawd that assures you that Nurk will re-sign for a reasonable amount and that we won't lose him for nothing? This one note argument of yours isn't realistic.

    Too bad we won't be able to play against the 76ers with Embid this season.
