    I don't get your point. Murray was signed back when the NBA realistically expected their cap to increase for the next few years. Now they're talking about the cap being artificially held UP at the same level and the subsequent years taking the hit, and that's not even considering that this Corona...

    Yeah. White is way more talented and has higher upside than a lot of folks seem to think. Murray's game sucks. He takes bad shots and uses too many possessions. He needs to become a more efficient player with way lower usage in order to make the rest of his game work. Poeltl played fine....

    I don't really think Metu is raw. Raw implies he has skills that need to be developed. I don't see that with him. I think he's a guy who thinks he's better than he is, rather than a guy like Walker who doesn't seem to know how good he is. Like for Walker, you see him blow past guys and then settle...

    Eh DeRozan is playing a position he can physically defend now. That's why he looks competent. Murray was never a great man-defender. Out of the young perimeter players, Murray's probably the worst there. Pop should realize that DJM needs to play off the ball as much as possible.

    Nah. What messed up the roster is Pop not prioritizing SFs in the trade and then letting his best defensive wings go. A bunch of teams offered forwards and picks for Leonard, and Pop declined. I get that he wanted Simmons, and honestly Philly should have done that deal. But considering how much the...

    It's a less generous market right now. I don't think White will get a raise beyond what Murray gets. I don't see a reason why the team shouldn't wait until next year to pay Derrick anyway. If anything this should be a cautionary tale to not extend rookie-contract players. Best-case scenario for the...

    Metu is crazy selfish on the court. It's miserable watching him on the court unless you're only rooting for him to get as many touches as possible. I don't think he has a bad offensive BBIQ. He probably knows the right move and just doesn't give a shit. Defensively, he's more energetic than...

    That's not the way physics works. Being taller doesn't make you bigger, and two guys the same weight but different heights is an advantage to the shorter man. That was why Durant struggled posting up smaller players for years and why many of the best man defenders (especially in the front court)...

    And yet people want Metu and Murray (and White for some) to move up positions. Yeah, no. He plays there because his skills fit best there. Pop had forwards both this year and last and kept them benched. Now if he had really good forwards, he might've played them. But that's obvious. Like if...

    Because I'm not trying to lie to prove my point. I did see other articles with them as being 6-6.5 in shoes and under. But it's all besides the point. If Johnson is under the average height by an inch, why is that a problem (especially given that he has a standing reach comparable to most...

    At this point it's getting boring. No, a guy being an inch or two shorter isn't going to stop him from being able to rotate out. It won't stop him from getting lose balls. It won't stop him from getting rebounds. Height is still preferable, but it's not that important when compared to IQ and...

    This is not evidence of anything. Danny Green played PF for much of his career at UNC. Also, DeRozan plays PF because that's his best position. Yes, he wouldn't start there if everyone were healthy, but he was getting minutes there during the regular regular season too. ...

    I'd just assumed you were talking about a PF. So I was getting annoyed watching the highlights, thinking "This guy looks slow and has no outside game. He'd be a decent center prospect but wouldn't be a forward at all." Then I looked him up and saw he was a center, and all's good again. He's fine....

    There is a big difference in agility though. Regardless, listing role-player shooters and guys who play with role-player shooting PFs doesn't really seem to make a case for there being a size difference. This isn't the old NBA anymore. Guys don't post up nearly as often, and Johnson is not like...

    I basically agree with this. I think you and I personally have discussed this enough to where you probably know I want a Gordon-esque PF to guard those "3.5" players. Ideally, you have five Lebron's. But I also think a Walker/Johnson wing combo is the clearest path forward for the team. That could...

    It's a three, it turns out. It's not a lie. Listing players with above-average height does not disprove the claim that the average SF for a while has been 6-6ish. And no, when you list a guy like Porter, who plays for Chicago, you aren't just listing the SFs on good teams. Even if most...

    Because he's awful. It's amazing to me that people still like him. It's like I'm the only one who's seen him actually play or something.
