KP looks healthy and got thicker, and the Mavs are 2-0. Whenever I feel bad about the young kids we threw away such as Thomas Bryant, Zubac, etc. all in the name of Lance, Beasely... I just think of the Knicks and I feel a little better. I mean jeez, they traded a cornerstone guy in KP for a CHANCE at KD and Kyrie. KP to Mavs kinda reminds me of Pau to Lakers in 2008. So weird the Knicks didn't put him up for bidding, and did a trade so secretly and so fast.

What ever happened to the rape charges against KP?

Its a very Knicks move that they got rid of somebody who still had potential for a money move. At least the Lakers got a superstar in return for their young players.

I think the biggest obstacle for KP will be health. He doesn't stay healthy for long enough to maintain a flow and rhythm to become a superstar. He either gets tired after 20-30 great games into a season, or when he's an all-star he gets injured. If he somehow he manages to play 70 games a year for a few years, he will be a great player. Dallas should keep him at 30 minutes a game. Stats aren't important - health is.

Or maybe Trae Young will.

Luke is horrible. Stunted the development of our (former) youngsters. Enjoy him Sactown.

The young Suns' aggressiveness all night have completely frustrated the Clips, who probably saw this as a easy W. PatBev fouls out, LouWill gets T'd. Well done Coach Monty Williams.

I didn't think Suns where a good team. They almost beat Denver and are about to beat the Flippers.

And that's without Ayton too.
I just looked at their 3 point shooting 17/43. Dang.

I can't believe the Suns were able to flip Grandpa Ariza for Oubre. I questioned it when it happened, and it's looking even nicer now for the Suns. You know these GM's, including our own, they have no loyalty or regards to the future of the franchise. Everyone is making moves based on NOW. PJ wanted to trade Kobe for Kidd and Marion, if Jerry Buss wasn't around, that would have been a done deal.

Clippers can't Handle athletic players. Booker and Jr got what they wanted.

Are the Suns better than the Warriors? I think they embarrassed both the Clippers and Warriors with the win tonight. I can’t wait to see where these teams are after 25-30 games.

The Dubs are really bad right now, totally being outplayed by OKC.

Down 33 at halftime. I wonder if the Warriors will move DLO this season if they find a better defensive fit. Or just hold on to him until Klay comes back next season.

They definitely could use some height. With their hard cap because of the DLO sign and trade that makes it very hard to improve the team. Willie Cauley-Stein should be a big help. Not sure when he is back.

They should trade DLo to the Wolves for Covington and Teague's expiring, rest Curry and Dray down the stretch, tank for those top lottery odds like Pop did for Duncan, and regroup next summer.

It's strange. On paper, they're simply missing 1 of their big 3 in Klay, right? To which the added D'Lo to try an offset. This tells you the role players and chemistry for their team was super important.

If I were the dubs, Curry is already 31, I'd cash in on him now. For a cornerstone franchise prospect, someone like Zach Norvell.

Lakers couldn't match salaries, sadly, unless they included AD.

But go into next season with Curry, Klay, Covington, Draymond, and someone like Aaron Baynes, they could do some damage again.

Curry - 31
Thompson - 29
Green - 29


Even if Golden State gets a high lottery pick, they will need him to produce fairly quickly if they plan on competing before Curry, Thompson and Green get too old.

Also Livingston and Iguodala.

Even when they still had Durant, their edge over the league was slipping.

We'll see how Thompson looks coming back from injury, but his and Curry's games should age well.
