Doesn't the fact that Miami doesn't have him by now mildly contradict your statement?
If my aunt had a beard, she'd be my uncle.
Butler is untouchable, that's why.
Oooh wait, I got that wrong.
Or more likely, we'd have Riley calling Thibs a motherfucker and hanging up on him.
MIA wants Jimmy. Jimmy wants MIA. MIN would prefer to ship Jimmy to the Eastern Conference, yet the God Riley hasn't been able to make it happen.
So much for that theory...
Jerry Reinsdorf knows the bait'n switch.
Is Turner, Harkless, Aminu, and a 1st for Butler and Dieng that bad of a deal?Compared to the Miami offer I'd say that's pretty good for them.
Aminu is the Blazer who Butler would most respect. His example energizes his teammates. Davis was similar, but he's gone.
that's almost too good!
The Heat and Timberwolves almost had a deal them Thibs called back and asked for more picks. Pat called himna motherfucker and hung up the phone.
See 4 posts above yours.
Is this a bad sign if the mods are posting things that have already been posted? Aren't they supposed to be reading the threads?
Denny should dock Craig 5 cigars for that one. Needs to set an example for the other moderators and crack the whip.
Turner is my least favorite Blazer at the moment, but Waiters? Turner is decent, but overpaid. Waiters is garbage. IMO
If frogs had wings they wouldn't have to drag their asses on the ground.
I expect that as long as Olshey is here, Dame and CJ are as well.
Not in this day and age...could be both!
Olshey would promote himself by promoting his own draft choice.
So, the latest is that The owner has agreed to keep trying hard to trade Butler if Butler will keep playing for them. Maybe this would give time to establish some of our players as somewhat valuable. If Turner could show he is valuable as a playmaker, if Layman could show he can shoot consistently, maybe even Leonard could show something with some increased minutes? Time for Harkless to get healthy. As for Trent and Curry, not sure if they will play enough to show something, unless it is in garbage time, but our team never seems to have much of that. The other thing; won't Curry be eligible to be traded by Dec 15; he might be a piece they would like. (I feel kind of foolish keeping this thread going cuz my gut says Olshey is afraid of a risk like this, but there is always a grain of hope.)
If this guys actaully plays in a game with this team again......WOW! I think the crowd will boo the crap out of him.
This is doing irreparable damage to the KAT-team relationship. I can see what Taylor/Thibs are trying to do, but the risk in alienating a 23 yr old franchise star who just signed a 5 yr contract far outweighs the little extra value they eek out of Jimmy.
