    I was specifically talking to lamlor. I don't like the "it's only one game" excuse either.

    Even though it's technically true, I also don't like the idea that "we have a better record than last year at this point" crap. They should be better, especially after dropping some easier games in the year.

    You are too new here son to be creating waves........ maybe you should step back and just see how things happen here at S2. Might benefit you in the long run.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    He criticized/mocked/insulted your posting style and substance (essentially calling you an apologist for the team). You criticized/mocked/insulted him personally. That's the critical difference. People are allowed to attack what you post here and you're allowed to attack what they post. You aren't allowed to attack each other personally, though.

    It us frustrating to see the same results from basically that same players. It is what it is though and am glad Neil took his medicine this trade deadline. We got under the tax and all of the bloated contracts will be one year shorter in a few months.

    I like Turner but his signing just killed us. Players like him are best when it is a good fit on a cheap contract. Think Evans in Memphis, Turner when he was in Boston, or any of the guys that San Antonio or Golden State seem to get productuon out of. Turner would play better elsewhere and has set Harkless back since there are less minutes.

    It has been nice to see Napier step up, Collins get minutes, and a full year of Nurk. Nice but not spectacular .

    I know it looked that way which is why I said I overreacted but you don't know or understand the history between us. He definitely meant it as a personal insult.

    Saying "whenever you post" is a little bitch response because he can't defend what he said. All I'm asking is that if he's going to attack me at least be able to back up what you are saying.

    If we hadn't signed Turner, Meyers, and Mo, I wonder what they would have ended up with?

    Say that we did not sign Turner and kept Mo and Leonard after they accepted their qualifying offers. Mo might have performed better last season but would not have gotten much with the cap crunch. Guessing 6M tops. Leonard would not have been retained and would be hard pressed to get more than the minimum last offseason.

    Hard to say on Turner. He still might have gotten 14M per for 4. Lots of crazy contracts that offseason.

    I'm using this post as an excuse to do a stat dive; honestly they probably all get MLE money without Paul Allen.

    Are We Better Or Worse with Them? A TED Talk

    Meyers: Neither better nor worse because he doesn't fucking play (Meyers plays in 6% of total team minutes... roflcopter)

    Mo and Turner: these guys have a lot of minutes, and we have overall negative points vs opponents while either one is on the floor.

    http://www.82games.com/1718/1718POR1.HTM

    In the 33% of team total minutes that Mo is on the floor, we're 91 points down, and we only win 38% of the shifts he's played. Yikes.

    Turner is -35 overall, but we've won 51% of the shifts he's played.

    In this particular case, Mo is really bad (which explains why he didn't play for long stretches of the season). Turner is... well, he's higher risk, but high (okay okay less low) reward.

    http://www.82games.com/1718/1718POR2.HTM

    The main lineup of Turner with Dame, CJ, Nurk, and Aminu wins 64% of the time, compared to 53.3% for the Harkless variant without Turner, and is +47 versus -11 for the Harkless variant.

    Turner with the starters is much more effective than Turner off the bench. Mo is ineffective period.

    http://www.82games.com/1718/1718POR5.HTM

    The obvious problem is obvious: Our SF position is weak, but our PF position is weaker. Aminu is playing out of position, and we have no effective backup for him (Collins is doing good work out there, so maybe we're seeing the emergence of Aminu as stopgap PF).

    In fact, I'd go so far as to say I kind of like Turner starting, and if we got a legit PF next to him at SF, we'd probably be really good until the bench comes in and ruins it.
