"WOJ MOAB? Nyquill for PBS Logo was on the table? (SWIPE)"


  

          

I don't know (I'd make a shit GM), but I'd probably make that trade.

Warriors said "nah, we good",

http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/20011990/indiana-pacers-offered-paul-george-golden-state-warriors-klay-thompson

Before All-Star forward Paul George was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Indiana Pacers talked to the Golden State Warriors and offered him for Klay Thompson, a source told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

According to the source, Golden State said no to the offer, and the talks with Indiana ended there.

Appearing on Thursday's SportsCenter, George told Wojnarowski he was aware the Pacers had talked to the Warriors.

"I would've looked forward to it, of just being in a good situation and a chance to compete for a championship," George said. "But it didn't happen. It's still fun to team up with a special talent and have a chance to compete against that team."

George joked that he didn't think a trade to Golden State would fly with the league.

"Yeah, I think that would've been the Chris Paul-to-L.A. situation where they denied that trade," George said with a laugh, referring to the infamous Hornets-Lakers deal in 2011 that was vetoed by then-NBA commissioner David Stern.

The Pacers agreed to send George to Oklahoma City for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis on June 30. The trade became official on July 6.

In Oklahoma City, George will be teamed with MVP Russell Westbrook. George talked Thursday about how Golden State's approach has changed the game.

"We love being the alpha of our teams, but it's just not realistic that you're going to be able to do it alone," George said.

"You need help in this league. Back in the day, that's what made the league. Guys were winning championships, making their team better by themselves. They had pieces and they had a lot of help. But the league was spread out.

"Now you've got guys teaming up; the landscape has shifted a bit. In order to compete against that, you have to have guys that can compete at the same level as you. That's really what this league has come down to. shifted the landscape a lot."

Plus klay makes a little less. And I'm not convinced PG is a better player anyway.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

1 - Klay is by all accounts perfectly content with being a spot-up shooter and top defender. That mentality is not easy to find in most high talented players, they want the ball and if not, it affects their effort, commitment, etc.

2 - Klay is a FA in 2019 vs PG in 2018. That gives the Warriors another year without having to decide if they really want to inflate their luxury tax bill.

how is GS managing to sign george? klay has an additional year left on his deal. further if it ain't broke, don't fix it. klay seems to be the better fit if not the better player.

That was a really great defensive team and before Hibbert turnEd to crap (or maybe while) otherwise, I agree with your sentiment for PG.

I don't think he's a 1 on a chip team (especially not in today's league) but he's a great number 2 for a really, really good team. I hope OKC can retain him.

they were well coached and obviously got the best of Hibbert, but that shouldnt have been enough to get them to game 7 vs the Heat with only one real star

When they were pushing Miami.

If you wanna credit that to PG, that's a better argument. But let's not act like he had Lance and Hibbert of today on that team.

And that probably was the best type of team to combat miami. Obviously a little more offense woulda helped, but they all locked in defensively.

Defenders

Vogel staff taught Hibberto how to protect the rim without fouling.

Lance grew up in their system so yeah if PG had ano influence on him on the defensive end sure...but them dudes playing good D coincided with PG becoming a star.

They wasaid playing good D when Granger was their best player.

he is a good player. he hasn't grown as much as i might have expected but a very solid two-way player. i would say right now he is jockeying with jimmy butler, klay and guys like that for the second tier stars. that indy team had OK depth but it had a couple of effective but stiff bigs, a bottom third point guard, etc. PG was clearly their best player and they had some success. This past year they had a shit start and some injuries otherwise I think they would have been a middle seed.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

the only team more than 3 games over .500 Indy beat in the playoffs those 2 seasons was a Knicks team with JR Smith as the #2 option.

I think the Dubs are better off with Klay and the extra year on his contract plus birds rights make it a no-brainer to keep him over PG.
