What's going on with the Blazers?

Stupid FO. Aminu and harkless were big losses for them


Acquiring Whiteside was also a tough loss.


yeah, swapping a cheap young stretch big in Myers Leonard for expensive old school big... porque?


Damn. I totally forgot about it.

Took a quick look at their roster... and it's basically Lillard, McCollum and Whiteside eating 60% of their cap. Yikes.
No depth at all.


I do think Kevin Love will be on their roster this season. Whitside’s expiring can assist with that.


Now, Dame $-McCollum and Nurkic-Love... that's something, if they got a 3&D

Negotiations

Thunder had ALL the leverage and could have named their price with Clippers no option but to accept.


Not true, OKC wanted to blow things up, they were as motivated to get a deal as the Clippers were.


Hmm. Kawhi says get PG or else I go to the Lakers.

OKC doesn’t have the leverage there?


No, because the Clippers interests were the same as their own. Either that or Frank runs circles around Pelinka as a negotiator. Or more likely, the OKC connection was the reason.

I feel bad for Gordon Hayward. Was finally getting his career back on track and then breaks his hand.

I did find it amusing that the Hayward news came out 15 minutes after this Bill Simmons tweet.

Felt this way for a week. Was obeying JINX rules, no longer care because the following is just true...

The Celts are legit good.

No more ball-stoppers. Ball moves. Everyone attacks. And Hayward is 2017 Hayward again. (Can’t speak for the chemistry but that seems 👍 too.)

The last one he didn't. He played in the first two losses. You can read these narratives from a mile away. When they win, media won't say anything. When they lose or keep losing, his jump shot will be the talking point.

Didn't realize there is another 1 loss team left and it's Boston, 7-1. Would be great if we can meet again in the finals.

Anybody ready to talk about my boy Devonte’ Graham. Balling out this year. He’d be a nice steal at the deadline!

How tf is he boarding like this? It does't seem like he's pulling a Westbrook and having his bigs box out so he can pad his stats.

Something is fishy with these Bucks.

My money is on the Sixers or Celtics coming out of East.

De’Aaron Fox out at least 3-4 weeks after a teammate stepped on his foot.. that’s very unfortunate.

Watching BOS vs DAL And it’s a Boston home game. Who is this person calling the games for Boston? His voice is ridiculous.

I caught some of that.

I did some training in Houston a few weeks again, lots of East Coasters. I told my boss that if I got $100 every time I heard the word “wicked” I could retire.
