    Hey thread…. What’s happening?

    So, I just wanted to come in here and commend the man formally known as Caito. He has handed in numerous TPS reports that simple say “Fuck Kyrie”……. and that’s just tremendous work.

    Thanks everyone

    I'm honestly surprised any owner, gm, coach wants to deal with this dude.

    It's recognizing the team wasn't likely going anywhere and it's another year that Luka is having to expend that much more energy. This is a massive, massive risk no doubt, but the upside is still present because Kyrie is talented. There's a pretty good chance this blows up in their face but the other option is waiting and see if anything happens or just keep moving and move towards a likely dead end (based on how the season has played out). For now, they just lean into it more and find more weapons, keep the pace methodical and hope this duo can overpower teams at the end of games.

    They're also continuing to hustle backwards in terms of trying to help build pieces for the franchise alongside Luka.

    Listening to a lot of NY sports radio since this went down, as Kyrie presented a lot to discuss.

    1. He is a transcendent talent, but
    2. he's also missed nearly half of the Nets games.
    3. If it was purely about basketball, this would be a big win for the Mavs. But because it's Kyrie, many fans in Brooklyn are glad he's gone.

    Considering the Mavs already said they won't offer him an in season extension I would say you're right.
    And I think he's gonna be very disappointed when he reaches free agency.

    If (big if) it works in Dallas, they’ll offer him the deal he wants.

    Just my opinion, but I honestly don't see him getting a 4 year max with all the headaches he brings with him.

    if nothing else he'll get an offer from the lakers cause lebron will push for it if he goes long enough unsigned, probably saying he can keep him out of trouble.

    I can't even fathom being on the cover of SI as a HS sophomore and somehow actually exceeding the hype. LeBron's career is remarkable. Not to get too dark but especially when you consider where he came from and how much he and his family had to struggle the first 15 years.

    IDK if I would say LOL Nets. This is the second time they have gone for it and it didn't work. (Garnett etc) However they spend 1 year with contract issues next season and then they free up a lot of room and they have these picks ahead:

    2023 first-round pick (from Suns)
    2023 first-round pick (Rockets can swap)
    2023 first-round pick (from Rockets or
    76ers)

    2025 first-round pick (Rockets can swap)
    2025 first-round pick (from Suns)
    2025 second-round pick (from Heat, protected top 37)

    2026 second-round pick (own)
    2027 first-round pick (from 76ers, protected top 8)
    2027 first-round pick (from Suns)
    2027 first-round pick (Rockets can swap)
    2027 second-round pick (from Mavericks)

    2028 first-round pick (own, can swap with Suns)
    2028 second-round pick (own)

    2029 first-round pick (from Mavericks)
    2029 first-round pick (own)
    2029 first-round pick (from Suns)
    2029 second-round pick (own)
    2029 second-round pick (from Mavericks)

    I'd agree with LOL nets based off the sheer fact that they had who they had and it went to what you outlined in less than three years. That's a pretty notable/colossal failure. Mileage may vary but there's one year where they made a lengthy playoff run.

    The NBA draft at the end of the decade is going to be hilarious. Like 4 teams have half the draft picks. Roster wise it is impossible to pick them all. I wonder what will happen.

    I would bet money a lot of those picks are traded elsewhere.

    Of course they are. NBA draft picks aren't supremely valuable for the selections themselves, like the NFL, outside of the very top of the lottery.

    They're currency.

    Exactly. Unless you get that generational talent, or a supremely deep draft.

    Going to be extremely interesting over the next couple of years, as Bronny James a) commits to a university; b) decides whether or not he’ll be one-and-done; c) goes through the leadup to his NBA draft.

    Do teams go stupid and take him higher than he might have been chosen, because of his lineage? Do they reach for the kid in the hopes the old man signs with them, plays alongside his boy into his early-forties?

    :gets his popcorn:

    Bronny will for sure get overvalued due to the true fact that Lebron will play with him.

    Bronny will definitely get overvalued due to Bron stating he's gonna stick around to play against him or on the same team.

    LeBron's contract is up after 24-25, which would also be after Bronny's soph season in college.

    Sorta looks like where the stars align so to speak.

    Not based on his current trajectory as a prospect, no. And not based on his dad's ultimate goal of playing with him as he's under contract with LA until at least Bronny's soph year of college.

    If, and I know it's a huge if, Bronny turns pro after 1 season, I'd bet money Bron makes the Lakers draft him.

    It's a massive if considering he's ranked roughly in the 40's-50's in his class. Of course he can improve, but that's a pretty gargantuan leap to a one-and-done.

    But assuming he did come out after 1 year it would depend entirely on how much LA values winning at that point versus just being the James Gang show.

    Jayson Tatum hit his 1,000th career 3-pointer Friday night, becoming the youngest player in NBA history to reach 1,000 threes at 24 years and 344 days old.

    This is not a particularly meaningful accomplishment, but I'm just posting it to say that Tatum is the man

    The Celtics blew game 5 last night. But they've got 2 more chances to close out the Hawks and I think they'll do it in game 6.

    With the Bucks down 3-1, the next round matchup of Celtics vs 76ers is looking like the Eastern Championship.

    despite being a sweep, that nets series was frustrating as fuck and now we head into this round with embiid almost certainly missing the start.

    I LOVE IT HERE.

    Way to no-show, Philly. James Harden had probably his best (last?) look at a ring and goes 3/11 in a game seven…good job, good effort.

    Anybody but the Lakers…

    Best? Yes. Last? No.

    I can fully see Harden disappointing some fan base when they think he is the missing piece to thier championship once he's on the buyout market in a few years.

    Jayson Tatum has played in 6 game 7's, and has scored at least 20 points in all of them. Among active players, only Lebron has done that more.

    But based on how the whole series played out, while Cetlics fans are looking forward to another Conference Final, they showed their flaws.

    Miami's back is broken. I don't see them coming back from that in Game 7.

    To think I thought Philly pulled a no-show, Boston was like hold my beer.

    Both the Bruins and the Celtics absolutely shitting the bed, it couldn’t happen to a more deserving fanbase…

    Fucking Florida though, potential Stanley Cup and Larry O’Brien victories in the same month.

    That'd be pretty cool if Miami & Florida win their respective championships. What, the 8 seed in both their conferences? When's the last time that happened?

    If you told me after we lost the #1 pick, that the Rockets would end up with Amen and Cam, I wouldn't hate it. If you told me we would end up with Amen and Cam and not have to move up from 20 to get Cam, I'd do fucking cartwheels.

    Is Jordan Poole about to become a discount version of James Harden, except with a ring? A black hole who rubs teammates/coaches the wrong way and through his own volition/franchise necessity changes teams every couple of years?

    I mean, within the period of about twelve months in Golden State he 1) won a starter spot on a stacked team; 2) won a championship; 3) got punched in the face by one of the leaders on said team and 4) got paid. That totally screams “low maintenance”, am I right?

    He needs to do some maturing for sure, but after Dray punched him and nothing happened to Dray I can see why he would be a little upset by that.

    economics. salary cap rules. supermax. these are the answers to your question.

    the supermax extension exists primarily to stop "super teams" by allowing teams to offer their own players more money than they could get from other teams. I for one am a fan of this system. brown is the 13th players to receive the super max in the last 7 years, so there are roughly 2 signed per season.

    as a celtics fan I'm thrilled with this deal. I'm thrilled to have a great team and keep it that way. I believe the Jay's will bring home a title.

    how's your team doing?

    Basketball is stupid, Jaylon Brown is nowhere near a $60M guy. Pro football is getting there also, what with these unproven QBs getting $50M+. “BuT wHy CaN’t ThE gM bUiLd A gOoD tEaM aRoUnD mE????”

    And I say that as someone who is way pro-worker/anti-management, who wants to see employees get paid what they’re worth. But seriously, once you’re past like $10M (per year, for fuck’s sakes), doesn’t it all just blur together? Is your quality of life really that much better when you get to $15M/$20M? Once you’re in multi-generational wealth territory, is that 20th car or 5th yacht really necessary? I say this as a stupid plug who’s busted my ass daily since I was 16 and will probably never see $100K a year let alone a million…wealthy people fatigue is real, bro.

    Fuck everything Boston sports related, you’ve seen enough championships for four lifetimes…spoiled fucking brats.

    In what will surely be the biggest move of the offseason, the Bucks get Damian Lillard.

    Bucks get: Damian Lillard
    Suns: Jusuf Nurkic
    Blazers: Deandre Ayton

    James Harden traded to Clippers.

    Good luck LA. I give it 14 months before he wants out.
