    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    Uh.... Isn’t Dwight on the Memphis Grizzlies roster? Isn’t working out a player on another team kinda...tampering? Just asking.

    How about Shaq? What’s he doing right now?

    That’s playoff veteran all-star Dwight Howard to you sir.

    That Timberwolves game looks like a must see...

    Offseason Thread - Betty when you call me, you can call me Al

    Clearly, there is no other significant news now. I cannot see any team taking a chance on Melo with the possible exception of Charlotte. Jordan brand, attempt to pump up attendance in an otherwise uninspiring season.

    Celtics Sign Tacko Fall

    At the beginning of the regular season, the Celtics must... 1. Guarantee the contract. Then it is a regular minimum contract that counts against the cap and takes up a roster slot. or 2. Convert the contract to a two way contract or 3. Waive Tacko. Then he can be signed to a G-league contract...

    How many regular season games will the Celtics win in 2019-2020?

    You guys realize that we are in the same conference as the hornets, the wizards, the cavs and the knicks, don’t you? There are some seriously bad teams out there before we get to up and coming teams like the magic, hawks and bulls.

    Offseason Thread - Betty when you call me, you can call me Al

    You’re right! I should have checked Amazon. I am especially taken by the “Leg-Up” brand. Which raises the question “Where do they get it?”. Are there coyote farms like dairy farms where the herds of coyotes are driven into the fields every morning and come home at night to be hooked up to...

    If Butler turned Philly down then it is clear that being top dog is more important to him then winning. And that may be the case. But OTOH, that was reported by exactly one person (Haberstroh) and it's really hard to tell the truth from the spin. And you can trade Butler just as easily as...

    Offseason Thread - Betty when you call me, you can call me Al

    This is one of those weirdnesses about the Philly off-season. If you are going all-in, you sign Al Horford, resign Butler and let Harris go. If you are building for the long term, you sign Harris, pass on AL and let Butler go. The fact that they did both simultaneously leaves me scratching...

    Actually, watching you acquire a pint of coyote urine is more interesting then watching you drink it.

    NBA over/under

    If you think that, you must have been asleep when a huge part of the league and the fans were going "WTF, the Warriors just got another All-star? Change the rules! UNdo this signing! To be fair, I never saw much of this on this board, but well into the season I was gritting my teeth while...

    NBA over/under

    The idea that KD could return next season and be a major force on the basketball court is laughable. I endured this all last season with people actually pretending that the Warriors signing Cousins was a big deal, rather then the rehab assignment that it ended up being. Yes, SOME players...
