OK, I admit 11 1st round picks are a good start.
Start with the acquisition of the Miami Dolphins 1st for Dame, then we'll talk about future assets.
I think the biggest asset you gain in trading Dame is the one we already have… the 3rd pick. I’m ok trading him to team he wants to play on for slightly lesser package.
Dame obviously have a ton of amassed goodwill, but I don't see any way we send him to one of the 2 preferred destinations over the other, purely *because*, especially when the offer is so much worse...
The deed to FloriDUH as another asset.
I soon as we acquire the Dolphins and deed to the state, we can then have the rights to Disney World. Trade gets better every minute.
its fully understandable that the trail blazers would be willing to send dame lillard to his preferred destination, but if the offer is trash, you just have to say no (im sorry dame, but the team always comes first)
He played with an extremely hurt Lillard on the Olympic team. Draymond Green said he could hardly move on many of the days due to the deterioration of that core.
You do understand we will keep the pick if we want. Dame is not demanding we trade it. There has been no indication that we are shopping it for anyone that is not really good. No reason to take back a lesser package.
My main focus is Jessica Alba with the genuine belief that she will walk through the door and sit on my lap.
The fact is Dame will know that if he asks out he won't be naming the team but giving a list of preferred destinations. We already heard him say Brooklyn as a part of that list when asked directly. The Nets have pics, expiring contracts and Claxton. For me, if Dame demands the trade before rookies can sign their contracts, then we could get the guys that the Nets draft at 21 and 22 if we like them, get Claxton and get a few future firsts along with the expiring contracts of Dinwiddie and Harris. That's a haul and it helps with the youth rebuild.
Ya Barry better set your expectations on DeLo and whatever the Fakers can give you.
That's a Big No Dog. Sounds like a bunch of meh. I know you're just saying if he wanted to be gone. But the Future is now. Get Dame the help to compete. Most of those young dudes will tell PDX Adios as soon as they can, if they actually turn out to be worth something anyways. Way it's always been. That's why Dame is so special, outside of the fact he's a special NBA talent. Dude is "all in". I'm hearing good things about possibilities of acquisitions. Fingers crossed.
Dame has ZERO chance to win a title in Portland, and no trade will change that unless we get Giannis, Embiid, or Zion and he stays healthy. You have to come to terms with reality.
Years ago, Dame had on a generic Brooklyn cap chilling on the bench. Mike Rice said "I don't like that hat".
YES! Dame is 33 years old, and it’s one of the few teams on his list of where he wants to. So unless Nets beat that package, it’s a good deal.
We agree to disagree, because i obviously have a higher opinion of Dame's abilities than you do. I d0 think the way you do about Phoenix. I don't see anyway they can win it all with a bunch of min. contract G Leaguers around that core.
Nope not enough. I don't see the Dolphins, FloriDUH, or Disney World listed in the comp.
