    I suspect this was a year one of retool with hopes that one or more of ant, nas or Sharpe pops up for a chance to contend next year, while fixing the obvious holes n the roster now.

    But you can't kick the can down the road and not take some like gp2 and still tell dame we are rebuilding around him.

    I think this is correct. Assuming Dame bought into that vision, then fine. His bullshit “expiration date” IG post makes me think he either didn’t like something, or was actually talking about something completely different

    Given the Brooklyn Bridge was pictured in that post and KD demanded a trade with 4 years on his contract I think it's simple to figure out he was talking about that. Probably Kyrie as well...he's a fan of Kyrie from way back.

    Its kind of like gossipy old people. When younger I went to my folks church and the ladies stitch and bitch group (guilting group) caused more than one pastor to leave. And me.

    Yeah, social media is like an insanely macro version of what churches, middle and high schools have always been. Someone makes a comment that might just be about a song lyric they heard or something someone else said about nothing that has to do with them and everyone spins it to catastrophic levels.

    Add Roby to the list of non-moves to this epic disaster of an offseason

    Roby is a tweener...a role player...he's no great target. Keep fishing for that "epic disaster" you seem to buy into....I think you'll eat crow over it when all is said and done. Celtics chose Wenyen Gabriel over Roby.....tells you something about his value...Eubanks is better than Roby...Watford is probably better than Roby

    This thread needs to DIE a horrible death so we can move on the point is taken and some may agree some might not but let's stop this BS at least for now and maybe re-visit this idea around all star break when MAYBE more appropriate.

    Maybe the OP here in this thread is just regurgitating the first words he/she ever heard when coming out the womb?

    There are about 8 threads that fit that category right now but it's offseason...folks are bored. Same every summer except this year we just have had a longer summer break missing the playoffs

    I hear they no longer use disaster, but instead they use, area emergency.

    He is statistically better than Nassir Little but people think Nas is the next big thing.

    Please explain.

    And GP2 isn’t a tweener? Role player?
    Not to mention - short?

    Goal was to get bigger, longer. More balanced. Roby would’ve made perfect sense - at a fraction of the cost - while not hardcapping ourselves and losing some assets that we could’ve played with.

    Dude, stop.

    Ya'll say this shit all the time. The team deserves criticism sometimes. If folks listened to ya'll on "being patient" then the team would literally never be criticized for anything.

    Ya'll is an inclusive term meant not to misgender anyone. Same with folks.

    I said dude, though. I should change that.
