    Hahahaha hahahaha joke of the year. I have watched all 82 regular season games and playoffs i can recall on both my hands about10 x where aminu and mo were really good and about 70+ games i was tearing my hair out with those 2 clowns. Both Aminu and harkless are solid rotation players very good off the bench but they can not be starters in the Wild Wild West. We were always compromised

    It seems to me the biggest limitation right now for Collins is his propensity to foul. He has trouble staying on the floor.

    In terms of his potential, he's just oozing with it. I think we forget just how young he is.

    Afflalo doesn't count. That was LaMarshmallow's team. This team is Dame's.

    Trying to think of a way to exploit this for a TPE, don't know that there is one for us. 3-way with MIA getting Butler and Meyers, PHI getting Josh Rich and Mo, we get Whiteside and a Mo-sized TPE from PHI?

    Gotta brush up on the 2017 rules for 3-ways. No, that isn't an HCP joke.

    Are you kidding me? Huge win for Olshey and the Blazers. This could be a difference maker.

    Actually, check that. Portland could win the championship and swish3 would credit Meyers for the sacrifice.

    Can someone tell me cap situation for NEXT year? Lets say there are no more trades, Baze+Hassan = 40M in savings, guessing we'll still not have much cap room

    Going to have to disagree with you on that one, my good man.

    But that's why they play the games. Can't wait till they lace 'em up and we'll find out!

    I just wanna give Olshey some credit here. He could’ve just run the core of the squad back next year. Instead he’s taking some risks. Whiteside is a risk, I don’t care that it didn’t cost much in terms of return. Moe and specifically Meyers (and Evan) were core locker room guys. But it shows he trusts Dame and the culture to get the best out of him, because when Whiteside is on his game, he’s a terror.

    I'm actually okay with Meyers breaking out elsewhere. I've always liked him. However, we need to admit it was NEVER going to happen here. If he busts out in MIA, I would be happy for him. It would be different if we traded him to the L*kers and he did it.

    That's pretty spot on. Dame will get on him for that though. We'll see how it goes.

    They've definitely lost a lot of the guys they grew close to as a team.
