I am so happy the NBA blocked this trade, its what the whole lockout was about. As a Houston fan, I could not believe they wanted to give away Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, and a draft pick for Pau Gasol. If they did Kevin Martin for Gasol straight up I would hesitate. This trade would make L.A., Miami, OKC, Boston, and Chicago contenders and force everyone else to just play against superteams. As a kind Golden State fan (live in the Bay Area) as was apalled when Paul might have landed here in exchange for Curry. Its just not the way to win and its not smart to punt on your future after preparing for it for five years. I think the league would be better if Miami, LA, and New York would be forced to leave the league. The NBA is broken, and the lockout didn't fix it. Also, if I'm Gasol, Odom, Martin, Scola, or Gragic, I'm betrayed. They will either play with a chip on their shoulder or have absolutely shattered confidence. I just hope this signals the end for LA.

This is nothing more than Stern sending a message to the league. He's still bitter about the lockout and now he is going to cripple the Hornets franchise. If they can't ship Paul out this year, they won't get anything for him. I don't care for the Lakers, but this trade was fair, justified, and worked out financially. Stern has become a dictator that is mismanaging this league worse than ever before.

teefbe: Since Minny decided quickly on re=signs and player options are we going to move up free agency like last year or it stays on 12th?

Miege22: I've created a poll on the topic. Moving up FA is harder to do than the draft because it impacts everyone. If even one owner is not on board with moving it up, we'll leave it to start on the 12t

Cleveland Cavaliers: Are you a contender? Do you need another solid contributor for your squad on literally the cheapest deal possible? Well you're in luck, Allen Crabbe is your man! For the low cost of a 2019 draft pick that won't be high cuz you're a contender

zephyr: does anyone know when espn is going to add position eligibility?

Miege22: They added PG eligibility for Bryn Forbes last week. I think they just kind of do it gradually

zephyr: landry shamet's at 21.1 mpg for the season -- does that mean toronto has to make a decision on activating him from d-league?
Nov 27, 2018 11:30:31 GMT -5
Miege22: I think we need to go a little longer on the d-league signees, all of them, this year. 20 games isnt' a huge sample size, and a few low or no minute games can drastically impact those averages.

Miege22: I don't think a decision needs to be made until the last week of our season.
