    He's not shooting mid range jumpers either. :biglaugh:

    He's all about the post. We might see him utilized in the same way as Marcus Camby.

    Neil, "Look CC, clearly you guys don't see what we see off the court...these things don't exist in a vacuum..look, clearly we are ahead of the curve after retooling all those years ago....I remember when I was with the Clippers...….."

    or, did he get rid of Paul Allen's mistakes. I think Allen had a lot to do with the amount of money that was doled out that year.

    It will be very interesting to see what Neil does when Nurk returns. Who do you keep?

    I always thought it was really cute how fans view Paul Allan's money and how he can't afford things.....a part for his submarine probably costs more than the luxury tax on KLove's contract.....these guys are high stakes rollers....RIP Paul....I think his sis is having some fun with this. It's sort of like....."he only got 90 million....he's going to want more than 5.7 million this contract....etc...…" Sports money is insane.

    I am waiting for a really good SF. I don't get Kevin "LO
    It’s possible Whiteside could make that a difficult decision. He’s definitely a higher percentage scorer than Nurkic.

    Whiteside is expiring. Nurk has 3 years left on the bargain of the century. What do you think?

    We can trade Bazemore or Whiteside immediately. We just can't trade them with other players for a bigger salary until August 24th for Bazemore and September 6th for Whiteside.

    This actually could be a really sneaky move on Olshey's part because Harkless and Leonard no longer add up to get Love or Griffin without adding more salary to it (not that I'm advocating trading for Love) but Whiteside makes more than Leonard and Harkless combined. For example, at the trade deadline Whiteside and a 1st for Love works whereas Harkless, Leonard, and a 1st for Love doesn't work. Once again I'm not advocating a trade for Love just presenting what could be happening.

    Before the Blazers traded for Nurkic reports where Whiteside was #1 on the Blazers list.

    You would be better off running that add on the Miami Craigslist. Before he ever plays a game there......

    And HA! So you DO have 15 of them! Lol

    I think we keep Whiteside, have Nurk come off the bench until he is fully back to his normal self. I think Nurk would be okay with that.

    I have faith in our fan base that we will find an entire new group of players to find annoying. #neversatisfied
