    Whiteside drove me nuts because he’d leave his man to chase the block. Too often for my liking

    Nobody in the league has him on their roster this year, but I'm guessing you're smarter than the 30 GMs in the league because you can look at his counting numbers and assess his impact. Maybe instead of creating highlights you should be in a front office signing players! Or instead of making fun of nerds, you could look beyond the generic stats and try to look at on court impact for players. I'm sure that's too much for you. You're old school like that.

    But if he got the block, then HCP could see that, and that meant more to him than positional defense, rim deterrence, team defense, etc. Counting stats!

    Stats he did get, yes. Haha

    I wasn’t a fan. And there’s a reason he was basically out of the league shortly after

    Whiteside had numbers that significantly outweighed his impact. He wasn't a bad as his detractors made him out to be though

    but he's a dinosaur type C; less mobile on the perimeter than Nurkic, and Nurkic is a stiff out on the perimeter. That's the reason that Whiteside isn't in the league anymore....obsolete. Too bad Cronin didn't use Whiteside as an impact gauge before he gave Nurkic 70M

    I guess Steph Curry tweaked his knee, X-Ray negative, MRI pending.

    Yeah my bad. I seem to have a memory of him being in one blowout for some reason. Oops.

    They don't need a package, they just need to tamper. He's going to LA and they will make anything work for it.

    As the script goes.

    Badji hasn't played. He currently is out due to a knee injury.

    I think Dallas is more likely. They will give a better package.

    Why did we sign a guy with a knee injury???? Is that a better option than Cousins or Howard? Those guys must suck.

    Take a deep breath there FAMS. I’d rather have Whiteside than anything we have on our roster that is pretending to be a center.

    Where did I say Nas and Keon are good?

    Maybe, just maybe, I’m not interested in Nas, Keon or Russ?
