If we traded for Kemba and Hayward doesn’t get hurt, we would be talking about defending the crown this year.

Kevin Love was a minus-29 tonite and looked absolutely miserable on the court.

Its gotta suck for him. He is on a team with no hope and has to wait almost a week to see if he has a shot at being moved anytime soon.

These guys are professionals and Love is getting paid an immense sum of money to do his job. All I know is that if I worked someplace where I was well paid but had no shot at organizational success, I wouldn't be happy. I can't speak for anyone else here but I suspect that players in these situations are miserable, even factoring in their paychecks.

I have officially gotten over my love of Zizic. He looks like a Greg Kite but not as good.

Feels incredible to have a fun team again. However this season ends up, I am quite sure I won’t stop saying that.

Oh, I think you'd be plenty happy cashing a paycheck of $1.1 million every two weeks to play a game you love, regardless of who your teammates were and how much they sucked. Shit, I'm pretty mediocre at golf, lose all the time and yet, I still spend a shitload of money doing it. If you told me I'd really suck, and lose all the time, but someone would pay me a quarter billion (not including endorsements) over 15 years or so, I'd be the happiest guy on Earth. He's getting paid a shit ton of money to do something he'd probably spend money on to do in his spare time if he had a "real" job.

Or if he's that miserable, he can take the 150plus million he's already made (again, not including anything but salary) and go play at the Y for the "fun" of the game again.

I can't think of a single job I'd be miserable at for $30 million a year. And if I were making a list, "playing basketball in the NBA" would be somewhere near the top of the list of jobs I'd be least miserable at.
