We don’t know much about Rob because this is a Klutch organization.

All we know about Rob is that he works his ass off and is a former agent that seems to have players’ respect. He probably does all the grinding work for Klutch, which is still valuable because I’m guessing cap management and knowing all the rules is probably not something Klutch is too interested in...but it’s obvious Lebron and AD heavily influence all personnel decisions.


Crazy right and they're our two stars. Unheard of in the league.


I’m not saying it’s a bad thing lol.

Letting go of Howard and DG was a huge mistake. And then trading for this primadonna Schroeder who is a terrible fit for the team. I don't want to see anymore moves from him. He's like Magic 2.0. Well, now we have no young talents left for him to throw away so I guess he couldn't possibly screw up that badly. Or could he?

I’m not really that upset about losing Danny Green as much as I am with losing Howard, yeah Howard might have lost a step this year.. but he still could have made a bigger difference then guys like Drummond and Gasol.

We were hurt. We dominated when healthy. He wouldn’t have been playable when bron and ad were hurt

Not necessarily directing this at just you, but why don’t folks realize dude isn’t the 2nd iteration of Magic at the head of basketball ops...he is Magic.

Unless you sincerely believe Magic was the CBA head of the group and worked in clearing cap, Rob seems to be that day to day dude putting in the work to get the numbers to work. Imho Magic was the dude to give the final yes or no to trade options that hit his table. Magic was just a figure head, while Rob was supposed to be the cap head (no Jimbo).

Anyways, we are in this position for a reason. We relied on Bron/AD’s brilliance last year after they had 4 months of reCOVIDry. Had we used up our hoarded cap space for 2 max players and then used our young assets to deal for AD, we would have had our triad of playmakers to help manage each of their loads. Instead our cap management was a missed opportunity.

No 🧢, we didn’t know cap.

We got the ring though... year 1 we got the ring.. I wouldn’t acquire AD a different way now looking back on it - because he managed to stay healthy enough to get us the ring - there’s no guarantee if we waited for him in FA, that he would have been healthy this year that he’s on our team.. you get me - the way that we did it worked, and it’s never guaranteed to work with injury prone players..look at these playoffs across the league .

@Mark: And I wouldn’t trade the ring either. It’s the setup for 17+ and utilizing Bron’s window efficiently in getting their ASAP that is concerning me at the moment.

why do you keep saying we dominated when healthy when you know we played easiest schedule and took multiple OT to beat teams like CAVS and DET

Last year's team had a higher win percentage than this year's team. Account for injuries and all, last year's team was still better.

Because AD was better, because this year he was too banged up. First half of last season he was the best defensive player I’ve witnessed with my own eyes.. and then in the bubble he was a scoring machine. This year he came out slow(banged up) , then Bron went down. I think our roster and upside were better this year

As a Team we were better last year. This year we have more talent hat doesn't fit.
