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

    For whatever it is worth, there have been multiple reports that LAL could get high lottery pick for Ball. Leaving aside medical concerns, which I don't know anything about other than rumors he will be fine, Ingram is 6'10" with PG skills and some ability to guard smaller players (again, look at...

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

    It's funny how much we value potential. No way of knowing but if Ingram were miraculously available for this draft, he'd get picked before #4. 20 year olds are supposed to struggle in the NBA. That doesn't mean they can't end up being top players.

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

    I know you've been beating this drum but if Al resigns, there is no way, barring injuries, that the Cs are an 8 seed. Frankly, I'd take the Cs roster over IND even before the draft. I agree that the EC 2018 playoff teams weren't great but the Cs still bet two teams and almost beat another...

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

    If the Lakers don't win a championship, it's going to take them like a decade to rebuild.

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

    Well, we're going to see how good Tatum and Brown can be - or cannot be.

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    What DD said. Sometimes there is no one to blame.

    Old guys playing in different eras

    Brad Sellers would have developed a 3P shot and would have been highly coveted. Brad Lohaus would be starting for someone.

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    Love what JT said: "Everyone wanted to make it work but it seems like no one knew how to do it." That's the Cs season in one sentence, notwithstanding the thousands of virtual pages that has been written on the subject.

    The 2nd Season - 2019 Playoff Thread

    Curry wouldn't have been able to play PnR because once those slow guys got a hand on him, he would stop moving. Also, as discussed in the old guys thread, I can only imagine how many times the current players would be called for traveling or palming. Spin-moves, Euro-steps, step-backs, all...

    Old guys playing in different eras

    Off the top of my head, Anthony Mason would not sniff a pro contract today. Kiki Vanderweghe would be a max player. I think Steph Curry would have had a great but short career. Greg Monroe would have been sought after if he played in the 1990s.

    Spin moves would be travels back then too.

    The 2nd Season - 2019 Playoff Thread

    The issue is not that Beverly , Tucker, etc. aren't tough and physical. The issue is that they are not allowed to play defense the way they used to. (I can only imagine how good Beverly's defense would be if he was allowed to hand check.) I mean it's the actual name of the rule: "freedom of...

    Anthony Davis: No Loyalty

    Here's an interesting article: https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2840879-the-anthony-davis-trade-that-would-terrify-the-nba/ The article talks about a theoretical DEN trade. That's not why I'm posting it. It has some interesting numbers re: AD's ability to score without assistance. Davis...

    The 2nd Season - 2019 Playoff Thread

    It was slower because every time someone tried to cut, they were either being held, err I mean hand-checked, or they were running into a shoulder or a hip or something else. Games were a beating and players had to be really strong to survive, so everyone was bulked up. I mean look at that...

    Anthony Davis: No Loyalty

    With regards to Ingram, I think the better question is if he would get a rookie contract extension if he were eligble this year and how much would he get. Here's the list of who got one last year and who is eligible for one next year...

    Anthony Davis: No Loyalty

    This, particularly with regards to the bolded. It's amazing to me that some people here can assess where Tatum is going to end up. Tatum had a historically good first season and a more difficult second season but he just turned 21. As a rough measure, the number of players who had earned 12...

    understand but no, the people who held the accounts had no idea what was going on. I followed up with phone calls. But tahnks for your thoughts.

    Interesting, thanks to both of you. Just trying to get educated.

    Question about hacking

    Thanks. Just to be clear, it is not my system. I'm just receiving emails from people whose systems are compromised. I guess my question can be boiled down to this: if the hackers are responding to me in real time, does that mean that the system is more compromised than just a phished...
