    The 5 Dumbest Moves in Franchise History

    Pretty sure he was referring to Paplebon's actual intelligence, not any transaction related issues.

    Not a night for defense. GSW is down 20 to Indy after surrendering 47 in the second quarter. Detroit and Charlotte are at 73 and 69 respectively.

    Danilo Gallinari to the Celtics

    You have greater flexibility with Gallo as opposed to either of the TPEs. He can bring back 125% of his salary plus 100K, so around 8.2. More importantly, unlike a TPE his salary can be combined with other salary for matching purposes.

    This kind of water carrying for owners bothers me (probably more than it should). Ryan was not waived to create flexibility. His guarantee date, January 10, 2023 is a ways off. Unless Ryan has a team ready to sign him now and the Lakers wanted to do him/his agent a favor - the only...

    The disrespect of Bball Paul is a travesty.

    Big & Tall Shopping for a New Center

    Not advocating for Crowder, but if you wanted him and needed a third team, Houston and Eric Gordon would seem like a good fit for Phoenix. The Suns could send Saric out to Houston to keep their tax bill neutral-ish.

    Big & Tall Shopping for a New Center

    Richaun Holmes has fallen out of Mike Brown's rotation in Sacramento. Can't claim to have watched much in the way of Kings basketball this year. He's signed for two more years after this at around 12M. I assume he would not cost anything. If anything maybe you get back some seconds for...

    The key distinction being that Looney was the 30th pick in the draft, not the 2nd, with an average salary of 1.2M, not 9.9M.

    Kyrie is an antisemite. And we have schadenfreude?

    I would be surprised if the NBPA's professional staff/counsel would support or encourage the kind of statements Jaylen has been making. This is not a battle you want to fight in public. Nor is it one you to take to an arbitrator. You try to settle this on a no-precedent basis...

    Trade targets using the Gallo contract

    Also worth remembering, that the Celtics are unlikely to be the only team inquiring about Poetl and some of those teams may have a greater need and a larger asset base. The Pelicans desperately need rim protection. They entered this season with (perhaps unreasonably) high expectations...

    Trade targets using the Gallo contract

    Well said. While the Celtics have a surfeit of guards now, it is worth remembering that Brogdon was available at a relatively low cost precisely because of injury history/concerns about his future availability.

    That's exactly what is being alluded to. If the real goal was to contrast his youth and inexperience with her experience and credentials you reference the number of years she has been licensed/practicing or her credentials - not her age. Dr. Cauthen is a sports psychologist. If Primo 1)...

    Goodbye Gruden and ongoing Snyder investigation discussion

    ESPN now reporting that there is an active criminal investigation in the U.S Attorney's office for the E.D. Va. That seems less than ideal.

    Steve Nash fired, Jacque Vaughn to Brooklyn

    That was a great moment. Hard to think of many other reporters whom I have a lower opinion of. In addition to Broussard's general gullibility, I recall checking and confirming that the address was a matter of public record (NBA player's pay property taxes too).

    Steve Nash fired, Jacque Vaughn to Brooklyn

    I would not put too much stock in this for a few reasons. Reports are about who "is under consideration" for coaching gigs are notorious as a way of currying favor. Any such "report" should be taken with a giant grain of salt. To which we add: Woj's reporting around Ime has already been...

    Legal exposure, would not have been a significant consideration. If the reported allegations are true, the dollars associated with those claims are not significant enough to drive decision making in the context of a NBA franchise (different story if we are talking about the assistant manager...
