    The Pacers better do something or they'll make the same mistake OKC did with Durant. Have a feeling Magic is betting PG doesn't get dealt and he can smooth talk him in free agency.

    Thankfully you're not the Lakers GM. Ingram will be a superstar once he puts some weight on. The kids only 19 you can't trade him now

    Thunder got some help. McDermott gives them a much needed shooter.

    Kind of boring trade deadline.

    PJ Tucker to Toronto. I think Toronto did a good job with trades. Ibaka will help, and Tucker is one of those wings who can defend elite wings like LeBron.

    They definitely got better but it won't really matter. They probably won't even get as far as last year.

    nice find on the pj tucker trade...... i don't see espn - which i consider the gospel - reporting it yet... who does Woj write for? looks like he broke it. i'll feel silly if it's espn but i don't see it there.

    ennis pg from houston to LAL for some sort of $$$$ reasons..... i wonder about players like him on rookie deals. has he ever really had a good shot?

    apparently rubio for d rose off the table........ i think rubio could help alot of teams. i am starting to buy into good pure PG and good defensive center and fill up the rest with scorer types - of which there are many.

    i think they need to trade JV for a 3 and D wing type player.......... but i'm thinking JV falls into okafor and greg munroe category - basically the league has passed by their style of scoring.

    love embiid too but i agree his injury history is brutal already..........

    what happened to roy hibbert? seemingly went from top 100 player to nowhere pretty fast.

    what's the deal with noel traded by philly? was he ever given a long, trusted run there? or is it all strange player personnel activity that lousy franchises seem to specialize in?

    I think when you have a superstar you hold on to them as long as possible and then rebuild when they leave.

    OKC had a team that could havr won a title last year. You don't trade your superstar then. You go for it and live with the results.

    I love the trade the Thunder made today. It doesn't make hem a contender by any means but it solidifies them as a playoff team and they may be a 5 or 6 seeed now

    The difference is that OKC was a legit contender last season, the Pacers aren't.

    Definitely a good trade for OKC. Gibson should give OKC similar production to what Ibaka gave them in the past, and McDermott can help them score.

    here is what happen to him. He was a flat out wasted draft pick. If u are afraid to pay a guy with his upcoming contract coming up, than u wasted the pick plain and simple.

    Good question. I think of this every year. The guy basically hit a spot and never went up. The guy looked like he had the makings of a superstar than all kinds of shit happen in Indy and now he has turned into a worst version of Tyson Chandler.

    You really think he's worth 5yr/100mil? That's what he's asking for and comparing him to Mozgov who got 4/64, Noel will probably get it. I can't see paying a guy near max money for a defensive specialist when you have a franchise center already. That being said they should have gotten at least a 1st rd pick, Colangelo better hope that Anderson works out or this is a disaster.

    No of course he isn't but they are the ones who drafted him. For what it is worth none of these signings are the real worth of these guys but the owners are making boat loads of money so i don't really care what they are paid. What i do think is fuked up is the Sixers owner made 18 million last year after paying all the bills. His club also went up 100 million if he sold it. All in one year. What does this prick do? Raises ticket prices 7 bucks next year. What a piece of shit move this is. After watching that garbage he shited out the last three years and making boat loads of money, this prick feels a need to gough the fans?

    Thor, i agree but my point was even one step before that. have they really given him significant, consistent minutes? i know he was injured alot earlier.

    for all the "okafor is a complete bust" opinions, out there. he did 30 and 12 or something like that last night................ whatever is wrong with okafor or whatever way he doesn't fit today's nba, has alot changed in 18 months since he was drafted #3?

    philly and sac-town have just been disasters with the top 10 picks. top 5 in philly's case...... both franchises seemed to give up on players far too easily

First 12
