    I think I remember something about this account getting shut down due to a circulating dick pick or something??
    Funny!

    100% agree. If Durant is in Portland, Dame should be at his side in his ear. Right Now!

    No way. They just made the Finals and Brown is younger. That would be terrible for Boston.

    Why do you think an extension for Nurk hasn’t been announced yet? :breakdance:

    I have to admit I’m really torn I’ve always wanted Dame to team up with another superstar. Problem is these young guys really intrigue me, Building organically like we did the late 80’s-90’s was so much fun. With Durant and Dame we’d obviously be a contender but both have maybe 3-4 good years left

    Regardless of everything. Durant would never want to come here simply for the fact we picked Oden over him. The man holds grudges.

    Sounds like he wants to go to Miami. Go figure?

    he won’t last long there. He doesn’t fit the famous “heat culture”

    Marks was saying the Nets can't get Bam in return because of the rookie max extension rule (Simmons already is there, and you can't have 2 ), so why would they do a trade with the Heat for some role players and potentially, end of the 1st round ,draft picks. Phoenix isn't a given either because a S & T Ayton deal hard caps the Nets. Not saying the Blazers have an advantage, but they have some nice young players & a potential top draft pick in Sharpe + future picks. You never know.

    So send Simmons to us.

    Bam to Brooklyn
    Simmons to Portland
    KD and Hart to Miami

    Hoopsjock was saying now that we're hard capped its impossible to acquire Durant. I'm not certain.

    If we trade Nurk, EBEC, Hart, Winslow, Little, Sharpe; is it possible for us to have enough room under the apron for Durant?

    With Simmons or Ayton yes its certainly possible, their max is lower. I'm not sure on Durant.

    If not then yes, it would now after acquiring Payton be financially impossible to trade for Durant.
