    Nope, we've been too busy reading your posts about how horrible our Blazers are and they need to just tank.

    CJ will have rest advantage on Dame tomorrow night. Here's hoping tonight's game is a blowout win for the Thyland Reddish Blazers.

    Vanderbilt Has really been a great addition for the Lakers. Too bad Trader Joe couldn’t land him.

    Reports say KAT may be available this summer, if we make the playoffs and our pick finally conveys to Chi, what would you guys realistically offer for Towns?

    Vanderbilt and Thybulle would be nice rotational forwards defensively.

    He's extremely talented, but I just don't feel like he's a winning basketball player. And for that reason, I'm out.

    I think he’s a Robin playing Batman.

    Every time Davis goes down you have to cringe if you’re a Lakers fan.

    I would like him. Look what Wiggins did in a different environment. KAT is a lot more talented than Wiggins.

    I really don’t like KAT. IDK.

    Availability and mental temperament are really valuable NBA skills.

    until the covid season, he missed a total of 5 games in 4 seasons. dude played all 82 in 3 of his first 4 seasons. and his injuries have been mostly fluky and not on his lower extremities.

    what's wrong with his temperament? he seems like he would really flourish as the #2 next to Dame.

    if he's available, i'd push all our non Dame/Sharpe chips in.

    Nurk + Ant for KAT works. I'd start there.

    I would as well. Worth the gamble.

    Dame, Sharpe, MT, Grant and KAT is a dangerous dangerous group.

    you will probably need a 3rd team, I don't think Minni is ready for an Ant x2 back-court.

    Works for the Blazers maybe. Why the heck would Minnesota consider that? You think they would be excited about paying Nurkic to backup Gobert?

    Ya a third team sending back picks and a wing would be necessary.

    I just think KAT is the kimda gamble we need to make.

    Agreed. I don’t understand. Why would someone want help for Dame but wouldn’t want KAT???

    Well if we make the playoffs we would then be able to trade future 1s right? I think Ant/Nas/Nurk/2 1s might work with a 3rd team involved. I’d make that trade too. Maybe that NY pick and our pick the following year?

    Not nearly enough to get a KAT level player. I think you are Sharpe and a 1st or 2 short in value based on recent star trades.

    I’m going after someone better for Ant/Sharpe/Nas/Nurk/4 1s than KAT.
