    lol. Yeah. Ben Simmons behavior and attitude and refusing to show up all year is undeserving of ridicule and yes everyone should be dying to have him on the team. Fuck that.

    How desperately does Boston want a PG?

    Good Lord, they just fell apart in the fourth with no one to direct them.

    Don't trade Simons.

    Trade CJ. Trade Nurk. Trade RoCo. Trade anyone else.

    Watching this and you can just see Dame's influence. Lot of similarities in their games now.

    I think the order of urgency to trade is:

    1. CJ
    2. Covington
    3. Powell
    4. Nurkic
    5. McLemore

    I would hate to see this incarnation of Roco get traded but I know he has value and could walk at the end of the season. Recently he has been a defensive terror and much much better offfensively.

    If you can get Jaylen brown you do whatever it takes besides Dame. Damian Lillard is the only untouchable player on this team! That is until he request a trade and makes it be known.

    I’m just gonna go ahead and say it.
    I don’t think trading Nurk is going to happen

    It does feel that way. Though, at least this time, Nurk absolutely LOVES Dame, instead of feels threatened by him.

    he’s also not gonna take less to go somewhere else, he’s spent his last contract being underpaid. That was the whole point of hiring Klutch. It’s also funny hearing people say he might prefer the east coast because it’s closer to home. As someone who flies frequently to and from Europe, there really isn’t much of a difference between a six hour flight and a ten hour one. I like our chances of keeping him.

    Nurk is upping his value.

    Nurk+ for Sabonis

    You compared Simmons to a serial rapist killer cannibal (literally) and someone who intentionally tried to injure players. No fuck THAT bullshit. Its a trash hyperbolic statement and absolutely batshit insane. Period.

    He’s been my target in any Powell trade

    Boston has too many PFs....they've agreed to find a place where old man Paul Milsap can play ...he's behind Griffin and Aldridge on their bench...we could probably trade a pack of gum for him....or dump some salary and rent him for the rest of the season...our bigs are having trouble staying on the court so far.

    He has a right to choose his employer just like the rest of us. You see a problem. I see an opportunity to add a star.

    He did choose his employer when he signed an extension with Philly. I don’t have a problem with him wanting out, but he does deserve some shit for holding out.

    Chauncey loves Nurk. He has since got hired. He's not gonna wanna let Nurk go. And we shouldn't either. If he's been used properly, he can be one of the best at his position. Chances are we won't be adding a center nearly as good as him. And don't bring up mediocre Myles Turner.
