"2023 NBA Offseason News "
Fri May-19-23 04:40 PM by allStah

          

It’s being widely reported that James Harden is returning to Houston.

Well, that’s a wrap for Philly being a contender. Maxey takes over at the point,
but at 6’2 defensively he is really small, so a 1/2 punch of Maxey and Embid isn’t
going to cut it.

Harden was always going to go back to the South. He is no East coast cat and never
really liked it.

Harden/Porter/Green/Smith/Sengun…with mofo Udoka!

That’s a serious squad right there

We shall see if this all comes to fruition.

ALL HAIL THE KING of LOSING: LEBRON
Bulls | Bears | White Sox | Yankees | Notre Dame | Illinois | Chelsea | Real Madrid

I’m really skeptical about the Harden to Houston stuff.
May 25th 2023
8
I guess the variable is what he’s able to “say”.
May 25th 2023

      Well, my biggest fear is that it's a message to Houston.
May 25th 2023

Bucks hiring Raptors assistant Adrian Griffin as new HC...
May 27th 2023

Okay, that's why...Nick Nurse to Philly confirmed
May 29th 2023

      Does this foretell that Harden is out of Philly?
May 29th 2023

      i feel like everyone knew Nurse would be in Philly.

Jun 01st 2023
46
Silver: We bustin Ja ass after the Finals are over
Jun 01st 2023
47
sounds like a season long suspension coming the way he's talkin.
Jun 01st 2023
48
i think ja should get hammered. but i dont like silver doing this.
Jun 01st 2023
49
Anything more than 20 games would be excessive…not
Jun 01st 2023
50
did you miss the part where Silver said we got dirt on you doggie?
Jun 01st 2023
52
      Dirt on doggie?
Jun 01st 2023
53
           smh.
Jun 01st 2023
54
yeah its messy af lol. but at this point i have no sympathy for ja
Jun 01st 2023
51
Right. This is doing the exact opposite.
Jun 01st 2023
55
Anything more than 20 games is excessive iMO
Jun 01st 2023
56
It's going to depend on the other stuff.
Jun 01st 2023
57
Exactly.
Jun 01st 2023
58
No one here knows the details of Silver's original convo with Ja...
Jun 01st 2023
59
      There it is. He’s not the last dude to come along that can run and dun...
Jun 02nd 2023
65
      For a one year suspension?
Jun 02nd 2023
72
           He did this to himself...
Jun 02nd 2023
81
In addition to the punishment
Jun 02nd 2023
62
      wouldnt that be Ja sullying his own name?
Jun 02nd 2023
76
Wow...hadn't thought about this guy in a sec...Frank Vogel to Phoenix
Jun 02nd 2023
60
That's not the best job to have
Jun 02nd 2023
61
Massive L. Dude is so overrated. I think his assistants had more
Jun 02nd 2023
64
      Which assistants?
Jun 02nd 2023
66
      The same assistant who guided them to the WCF after winning
Jun 02nd 2023
70
           Not his fault they missed the *play-in*?
Jun 02nd 2023
73
      What smells fishy? Honest question...
Jun 02nd 2023
67
           It was fishy when he got the Laker job lol
Jun 02nd 2023
68
           No it wasn't. They lowballed Lue. The end.
Jun 02nd 2023
69
                there were other options besides Vogel
Jun 02nd 2023
77
                     Name names.
Jun 02nd 2023
78
                          The current HC in Dallas who was Vogel’s assistant?
Jun 02nd 2023
80
                               The guy who hasn’t accomplished what Vogel had?
Jun 03rd 2023
83
                                    The point is nobody was talking about Vogel, the Lakers wanted Kidd…
Jun 04th 2023
84
                                         Vogel hired Kidd for his staff.
Jun 05th 2023
89
                                              I know you like random arguments but Kidd was a candidate for HC…
Jun 05th 2023
90
                                                   Lol ok.
Jun 05th 2023
93
           Vogel hasn’t been mentioned with anything, and now out of
Jun 02nd 2023

Jun 07th 2023
117
           it doesn't matter if it was a toy or not.
Jun 07th 2023
118
           But is there any LEGAL LANGUAGE that he can’t show off guns
Jun 07th 2023
134
                no. i understand the conflict. it doesn't matter.
Jun 07th 2023
135
                There doesn’t have to be.
Jun 07th 2023
140
           This isn’t a legal issue, and it’s not a court of law.
Jun 07th 2023
119
           Is Adam Silver a judge? Is Ja on trial? I must have missed that.

           100%. I was truly thinking this would be WAY worse.
Jun 16th 2023
225
                why? he's just dumb and has dumb friends he's not a criminal...
Jun 16th 2023
226
                     Only because of what Silver said.

Godfather Riley bout to go so fucking hard for Dame
Jun 18th 2023
247
is it safe to assume
Jun 18th 2023
248
Got to be, right?
Jun 18th 2023
249
The 5th starter only needs to be a 3&D…
Jun 18th 2023
251
If the Suns do indeed trade for Beal
Jun 18th 2023
255
If the Heat get Dame and someone like Azibuikwe from UTAH....
Jun 18th 2023
254
AND GOT RID OF CHRIS PAUL. Leeeeeeeets go!
Jun 18th 2023

Jun 18th 2023
258
This will blow up in the Suns face big time......
Jun 18th 2023
260
yeah I don't get it
Jun 18th 2023
265
      Most teams 3rd best perimeter defender can’t guard Beal one on one…
Jun 19th 2023
270
gonna be hilarious when Denver drops them in 5 games …again
Jun 20th 2023
296
Yoooo...
Jun 18th 2023
250
Damn
Jun 18th 2023
261
They HAD to sign Beal to keep him from leaving 4 nothing then get that?
Jun 19th 2023
269
I guess Silver is not even going to address the nepotism…
Jun 20th 2023
295
      What is there to address?
Jun 20th 2023

Wizards have to blow up their roster and tank, right?

Jun 19th 2023

what would be the difference?
Jun 18th 2023
264
      It would serve the Wizard's best interests
Jun 20th 2023
297
I’ll guess that no trade clause is gonna go away on the next CBA
Jun 19th 2023
267
I agree with every word you said...
Jun 19th 2023
268
How are they going to defend anyone
Jun 19th 2023

276
           definitely not fragile mentally, being a 3rd option not having to carry....

we'll see, but this had me going:
Jun 19th 2023

      LOL...accurate
Jun 19th 2023
288
      lmao. AD's the dude looking on in the background
Jun 19th 2023
292
Makes sense if he's re-signing for a more team-friendly deal
Jun 19th 2023
289
      this would be a bold choice to make the fanbase hate you immediately.
Jun 19th 2023
290
           Only way it would work is if he announced some HUGE move first
Jun 19th 2023
291
Cam Payne is probably the happiest guy in all of this he was out...
Jun 19th 2023
282
Damn, CP3 found out through his son, not the team, thinks Zeke did it
Jun 19th 2023

They better keep that 3rd pick and knock it out of the park

Odd target IMO

Jun 21st 2023
317
Tyus going to the Wizards but still it's a great deal for the Celtics
Jun 21st 2023
319
Zingis and two firsts for Smart and Gallo is transparently a good deal.
Jun 22nd 2023
321
it is a great deal
Jun 22nd 2023
323
      This really works for Memphis, because they needed to fill a void
Jun 22nd 2023
327
           Agreed. I like this deal way better for Memphis.
Jun 22nd 2023
329
                The draft picks Boston got

      Have to wonder
Jun 22nd 2023
328
      yeah we'll see him get an ovation next year when he returns
Jun 22nd 2023
333
      I hate it. He’s the heart and soul of the team.
Jun 22nd 2023

      Sucks. Can’t imagine him playing in another uniform.
Jun 22nd 2023

Khris Middleton opts out.
Jun 21st 2023

should go to Philly
Jun 21st 2023
320
Almost certainly re-signing with Bucks on a more cap-friendly deal.
Jun 22nd 2023
322
They better come correct for him to be turning down $40M to help them
Jun 22nd 2023
331
      There's just no way he bails on this situation.
Jun 22nd 2023
336
           but why not do that for $40M?
Jun 22nd 2023
359
I don't see how the Bucks give him a new deal for $45+ a year

Jun 22nd 2023

I didn't think so...
Jun 22nd 2023
346
Like I said above, makes sense to me
Jun 22nd 2023
339
not for the Wizards, they traded Beal's contract for Poole's?
Jun 22nd 2023
345
      I think if Poole shows maturity and consistency as a top dog
Jun 22nd 2023
349
I'll leave it to other folks to crack jokes about the CP3 aspect of the ...

didn't Kuz opt out?
Jun 22nd 2023

and now my Nino Brown moment. I have to root against CP3
Jun 22nd 2023

i cant believe that shit really happened lol.

Yean, I don't like it.

CP3's easily moveable this offseason, fwiw.

GS getting the Poole contract off their books is an unqualified win.
Jun 22nd 2023
355
Agreed with all this.
Jun 22nd 2023
356
plus its pretty clear the vets wanted poole gone.
Jun 22nd 2023

who cares what their vets want?

Jun 26th 2023
399
                so what would you have them do here?

382
                right. bro is acting like they traded away kevon looney.
Jun 25th 2023
384
                     right. i'm by no means saying Poole is untalented.
Jun 25th 2023
386
                he is the greatest player they will ever have. you appease him
Jun 24th 2023
383
           I hardly watched the Warriors

he's definitely not going to do that there, he didn't do it in Houston.....
Jun 23rd 2023

it's a concern but not quite that big
Jun 23rd 2023

Bro he’s ass. He should head to Peru right now.

Magic gave him 20mpg then waived him. I think we know how this ends.

Jul 05th 2023

Jul 07th 2023
436
      I think the issue is similar to the 'running quarterback'
Jul 08th 2023
438
           the issue is that he isnt good
Jul 08th 2023
442
           You can't blame systems for Bol's shortcomings, though.
Jul 09th 2023

In response to Reply # 0


          

so harden is done trying to seriously contend for a chip? (thats why he left in the first place)

and houston is gonna commit big money to harden for several rebuild years to lead/mentor a team of young dudes who already have a reputation for being undisciplined and immature?

damn are the strip clubs that much better in houston?

Harden tried winning a ring but a global pandemic stopped him

In Philly the emphasis was on getting Joel the MVP , not playoff success

He did his part , in his head he’s trying to finish w the 💰 and zero injuries

8. "I’m really skeptical about the Harden to Houston stuff."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Because it’s reported Harden wants to play for a team that will compete. Well… that’s not Houston. Especially if they have to pay him the max (which he also clearly wants).

I’ve no doubt Houston front office wants to see the wins go up, because they could all be toast after another bad season, so I get their interest to *some* extent (especially since they don’t have a 2024 pick if memory serves). And I’ve no doubt Harden loves Houston, loves being king of the city. If he doesn’t care about winning at all, he could cash huge checks and do the Damian Lillard thing on the way to a barely-.500 season.

… but I think he’ll be back in Philly if he *actually* wants to compete. Especially because he has Philly COMPLETELY over a barrel for the reason you stated. If they don’t pay him, they’re not competitive any more, and they risk pissing off Embiid. So they just have to offer him a 4-year max.

We’ll see if the “he wants to compete” claims are just bullshit end of the day, lol.

Also, fwiw, if we see a Harden/Green/Porter/Smith/Sengun starting 5 next season, we’re officially on watch for what could be the worst defense in the history of the NBA, lol. They’d be electric on offense and absolutely beyond dreadful on defense. It’d be incredibly fun to watch so I kinda hope it happens for that reason alone, lmao.

In response to Reply # 8


  

          

Like, similar to Dame…they can SAY publicly they want to compete, but do they? It’s entirely possible Hardens just like, “I could ring chase at the end I guess. Let’s get paid and live like a king”. I can’t blame someone for doing that, but at the same time - you’d be absolutely FLAMED if you said that out loud so…

10. "Well, my biggest fear is that it's a message to Houston."
In response to Reply # 9


  

          

And that message is "do everything you have to do to build a win-now team." Trade the 4th pick, trade Porter, trade Sengun, trade Jabari if you have to.

I just... don't know if you can shift your entire timeline from "win 4-5 years from now" to "win today" over the course of a summer, especially considering they don't have all their first rounders going forward.

Feels like a world in which they mortgage the future to play, like, Green, Harden, Pat Bev, Anunoby, maybe they pay a laughably fucking huge deal to Brook Lopez... y'know, some very 44-win-ceiling-ass team like this.

Like, I think Portland has some decisions to make about Dame if Scoot falls into their lap at 3. (We talked about this elsewhere, Ryan.) Because if you have enough youth assets on the roster, trying to run concurrently old timeline and young timeline players at the same time is an insane tightrope to walk.

So it's like Houston... *wants* to be in that boat, lmao. And yeah, I just kinda think they're going to put themselves in a position where they're totally fucked if they sign Harden. Just completely fucked for, like, over half a decade. And I like a lot of their talent (even if the fit is super weird right now), so I hope they don't do it.

(I also just can't imagine a world in which Philly doesn't offer Harden legitimately the entire world to stay, lol.)

I honestly thought he'd be there until Steph retired.

I've said before that they've been training Lacob's kid for a while now. Like, even during those first few championship seasons. Same with Dunleavy Jr. and ZaZa. And Livingston is on the rise. I'd guess either of the first probably gets the job.

This probably complicates Draymond staying after this year. He's a big Myers guy. And probably could have convinced him to take a team-friendly extension. So... we'll see.

..I don't think he was looking fwd to a rebuild.

Whether this signals the official start of that rebuild remains to be seen, but GSW has quite a few things to consider at this point.

Myers can pretty much rest, reset, and write his own ticket in the next few years. Not a bad position to be in at all.

In response to Reply # 19


          

there are some breadcrumbs out there about him aligning with deep pocketed silicon valley investors and getting into the media space.

i dont even think his decision is much about basketball and team building.

shit...this year his biggest in-season moves were trading james wiseman and bringing back gp2 (both at the urging of the vets) and signing two way player anthony lamb to a full contract. he never even really made any effort to bolster the dubs interior...their glaring weakness all season. and in the pre-deadline period of a few weeks when rob pelinka completely revamped the lakers roster...myers was releasing 4 episodes of his podcast in partnership with espn lol.

that didnt sound like a guy who gave a much of a shit about his future as gm lol.

In response to Reply # 19


  

          

Again, who knows whether they decide to re-up Dray and Klay, how much it would cost, and how it would effect the team either way? But I think they could probably bring back the same core of the team next season (yes, even Poole) and probably be in the mix. Not front-runners in the conference or anything, but in the mix.

Dubs have had more extended success than most teams. once it ends you usually have 10 (or more) year wait for the next run.

it was a helluva ride though if it's really over.

Even during their first championship season they were talking up how Myers was working with at least one of them.

So they may end up being nepo-baby goofballs, but they've spent time paying dues.

Hopefully set up enough infrastructure and trained his successors enough that the transition won't be a bumpy as it's been with other times.

Regardless, I've seen fire and I've seen rain with this team, so I'm fully prepared to watch what comes next. Going from four championships/six Finals appearances in eight seasons to just play-off/barely outside the play-offs team really isn't that much to complain about. Besides, I figure this will be really over once Steph retires.

under his tenure.

first to crack $7 bil and first not to be the knicks or the lakers.

and just a small way off from surpassing the dallas cowboys as the most valuable sports franchise in the world.

and then you had the success on the court.

Which looked like it might backfire during the height of the pandemic, because they initially had BIG plans of keeping that spot jumping when the nights the Warriors didn't have games.

It hasn't been until last year, or more likely this year, that they've got it really up and running. From the summer to the winter they're hosting Drake, the LL hip-hop tour, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Pink, John Mayer, SZA, etc.

In response to Reply # 39


  

          

Dwane Casey, the former coach for the Pistons, moved up to the front office. I wonder how much sway Casey had in deciding these numbers. With numbers that huge, ownership obviously had the final say. Still wonder if Casey went to bat for Williams though.

With a hefty contact like that, I would have to assume Monty Williams' job security will be stone granite secure, which is beyond rare for NBA head coaches, much less black ones. I hope his six years aren't mired in dread; Detroit sliding in the recent draft with respect to their record was a very bad look.

Secondly, I wonder if this will up the rate for future coaching hires; in particular Budenholzer.

just say the league is continuing to investigate and then release the penalty and relevant information after the finals.

no need to tease it like a gossip item and make everyone speculate during the finals.

because itll definitely be talked about on every sports outlet.

In response to Reply # 52


          

Is it more dirt than on Adam and the NBA for doing business and in bed
with a country that is trying to kill off a race and deny people human rights?…
more dirt than Adam making blood money, and hushing the league up about it?

The real killers.

Morant is no different than Iverson, Jordan( used to gamble and hang with killers, pimps
and gangsters), Rasheed,etc….Young basketball players who made mistakes because
they were young and dumb.

Iverson was ARRESTED on gun and drug possession. He was given 3 years probation…
I think he got a one game suspension for that.

If nothing criminal occurred and no charges or arrest, anything more than
20 games would be excessive. Period.

One year suspension? FOH

You don't go on an apology tour (interview with Jalen Rose) and openly admit you were wrong and will never repeat that behavior, only to do just that not even 2 months later.

He won't win any appeal, regardless of the punishment.

In response to Reply # 59


          

You’re nuts. There will be major pushback, even from the players if Ja
gets suspended for an entire year.

Ja bright zero guns to any nba facility..and a lot of the other stuff
are allegations and he said/she said.

No charges
No arrests
Nothing

That fact you think that any type of punishment would get little to no
resistance is delusional.

Jaylen Brown and the PU went hardcore off that bullshit that Silver was trying to
put Kyrie through…you think they would sit back and allow Jah to be suspended
for one year…or anything excessive?

..No one can save Ja from his own behavior.

Again: This young man admitted he was wrong on national tv, vowing to never put himself in that position again. He literally went back on his word. What argument could you possibly mount for someone who clearly doesn't understand what's at stake?

Being young & ignorant barely gets young Black athletes a pass and he already used his less than 3 months ago.

You might not want to admit it. Hell, Ja might not want to admit it, but he has a problem. The league is clearly planning to give him plenty of time to deal with that issue away from the game. He won't win sympathy from many of his peers, the players union, etc. I don't see him winning any appeal.

I'm not saying that I think he deserves to sit for a year, but I wouldn't be surprised if that happens.

*Nothing personal, but its kinda wild that you expect more out of the youth in Chi, but make excuses for Ja. Make it make sense.

it's possible Silver and the NBA office will sully Ja Morant's name by going into some small amount of detail about the other infractions the league office has discovered.

With all that factored in, makes perfect since to delay suspending him.

I wonder how much of a fight either the Player's unions and the Grizzlies will put up to challenge the length of the suspension.

In response to Reply # 60

given the high title expectations it appears that team has and how top heavy and imbalanced that roster is.

I have a feeling he's gonna be Fall Guy Vogel again just like he was for the Lakers, but perhaps the Phoenix front office has plans to make that roster get some depth somehow.

Given how much of a Brinks truck Monty Williams got with his signing, I wonder what Vogel's contract looks like; especially the number of years he Phoenix agreed to signed him for.

**edit**

So in theory, that leaves Doc and Budenholzer as the available big name head coaches left for that Toronto Raptors spot, correct? To me knowledge, that's the only head coaching gig available right now. That's a fairly interesting spot as it appears that team is in a huge transition spot right now. Will be interesting who gets left out of getting a head coaching spot; I personally think both guys are slightly overrated, but at the same time, it does suck to be out of a job.

Nah, Luka, Kyrie and Kidd get to wear that *forever*. And they were actually trying up until the very last game, where they 180'd and tried to tank it. lol lol lol lol lol.

Wouldn't blame any team for never wanting that dude leading a squad. He's a clown. Seems like all of the other teams with vacancies agree.

but were scared to give him the HC job because of off court concerns even though people like Luke Walton have had multiple HC jobs with off court concerns

In response to Reply # 89


          

and there were reasons why they didn’t go with him right away if Dallas hadn’t stole him he would’ve most likely been Vogel’s successor and everyone knows that.

But back to the original point that there were other options besides Vogel his name was somewhat out of the blue.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Part of me can't help but wonder if anybody taking a seat on Mazz's bench is secretly hoping he gets canned and they can snag the job mid-season.


But Bravo drama aside, I think it's smart to surround him with older guys with way more experience than him, especially with ego management if they want to run this roster back once more time.

in addition to current players to get Kyrie. It's not so much about them acquiescing to Kyrie because he's being a diva; they overcommitted in the short term and ending up screwing themselves in terms of long term freedom, hence them pleading and hoping Kyrie will resign.

It would hurt way too much for Kyrie just up a sign elsewhere, which he's completely free to do.

In this scenario, out of everyone involved, it's Dallas that's in the wrong, not Kyrie.

I honestly feel if he does walk, it will be for the Lakers. And Devin Booker who I feel would be a great Laker.

No proof but a 1 second clip on social media. If silver tries to hit him with
a suspension that’s tremendously long, bring out the lawyers….and take it to court
or arbitration.

He was already punished for previous indiscretions, so this new issue is based on an
online video of him and friends. No one else witnessed it.

He totally should push that.

All it takes is any kind of doubt.

The NBA can’t prove that it wasn’t or that it was real. The only people who
were there were him and his friend.

We have no idea where he was, what state he was in, when it actually happened,
or if the gun was real or not. It’s a 1-5 second live clip.

And then there is the legal aspect of it.. Tenn is a permitless carry state
for anyone 18 years old or older, so what rules did he break if he actually
did have a real gun?

He wasn’t in or on any NBA facility and was in or on his own property and on his own
personal time.

Is there any visible language or stipulation in the CBA or any policy where
a player can’t be seen with a gun on his personal time and on his property(
as long as he is in a state that allows it)?

That wouldn’t make any sense since Tenn is a state where you can openly
carry a gun.

There are tons of legal wiggle room with that.

and the NBA doesn't have to prove it.

it's the perception, and the fact that they already told him "stop going on social media showing off guns."

so, they're gonna do what they want, which is announce the suspension they see fit, and then the union can decide if they wanna help Ja fight it.

in the CBA or Code of conduct?…considering it’s legal to open and carry in his
state, and would that not go against his second amendment rights?

Sure, don’t bring guns into a NBA facility or a place where the NBA does business.
That‘s their property. So they can have rules for that. Just like stores in legal and carry
states put up signs stating that they don’t allow guns in their store.

But can they really tell Ja that he can’t showcase a gun on his own time and property
in a state where it is legal? That’s a legal matter all day long.

I don’t think you understand the conflict here.

This doesn’t matter. It’s not a legal issue.

>He wasn’t in or on any NBA facility and was in or on his own
>property and on his own
>personal time.

Were it not on video, this would be a valid point.

>policy where

This doesn’t matter at all. Moreover, there likely is some level of a morality clause/conduct detrimental to the league/etc language in there.

This would only matter if there were actual language in the CBA that directly addresses it- and if it doesn’t, it’s fair game, particularly when it rubs up against any morality/conduct clause.

This has nothing to do with what can be legally proven, what reasonable doubt exists, or what laws are in place wherever he is. Real gun, toy gun, unloaded gun, legal gun, illegal gun. That doesn’t really matter either.

In Silver’s eyes: he made the league look bad, promised he’d never do the thing that made them look bad, then did it again shortly after. You can argue whether Silver is being too hard or just inconsistent (when the suspension is announced, we’re not even discussing something tangible yet), but acting like this is a trial and the NBA has to meet a certain burden of proof than they’ve never had to before when doling out punishment? Lol, why waste your time? What are you even arguing?

yea he didnt play well vs boston but neither did Embid. I dont even think they wanted to play for Doc.

and I honestly think Philly's supporting cast isn't that good. A healthy Giannis/Bucks team would have beat them

Unless his only priority is "I like Houston, I like the strip clubs there, that's where I wanna be." Which would be a totally fair reason!

But Philly will have to offer him whatever he wants money-wise, and he's just in a miles better position to win in Philly than in Houston, obviously. And I struggle to think a future HOF player picks one team over the other purely for nostalgia over the combo of money and team quality, lol.

theyre claiming a decision hasnt been made and the discussions involved cp3 on a mutual resolution.


btw here was the original chris haynes tweet that claimed cp3 was notified that he was being waived.
https://twitter.com/ChrisBHaynes/status/1666554716380188673

haynes is a klutch guy. i wonder if bron wants cp3 on the lakers now that it looks like kyrie wont be going there.

In response to Reply # 144


  

          

I’m not surprised.

I bet the Suns WANT to dump him, but it makes sense they’d be open to other options because, at least in the regular season, they can’t currently claim no Paul is better than a lot of Paul. And I don’t think PG is a particularly rich trade market right now - if you want anybody, it’s the Grizz kid, and they clearly aren’t in the mood to flip him given, y’know.

imagine watching the warriors this season and deciding what they need is another aging veteran who you cant expect to be on the court come playoff time.

165. "Despite all the talk about money and chemistry re: GSW"
In response to Reply # 164


  

          

In a world where a lot of goofy contract arrangements aren't gonna fly a year from now


I could see them bringing CP3 on and having him run the practice squad 'til March.


To be clear I don't think that will happen but if I were trying to put my stamp on this team post-Myers at the obvious end of an era that'd be nearly impossible to recreate...


CP3 running the practice squad with a bunch of dudes who've been defined by their carelessness as much as their success might be exactly how I want to spend Lacob's money. Especially if I can figure out the Melo backdoor special of getting him in rooms with money managers and VCs.


...But yea, if he wound up in San Francisco I'd be, in full Stephen A. voice, flabbahgasted.

...once it was became apparent that Steph was as good/getting better than him. No way he decides to back-up Steph now.

And no way the Warriors shed younger players to clear salary space to sign him.

172. "Givony reporting GSW is looking to deal Kuminga for a high draft pick."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Makes sense imo. They have one more season after the coming one to exercise the club option, and then Kuminga enters restricted free agency. Since they're unquestionably in win now mode, and Kuminga is still all future potential but a current net negative on the floor for the most part, they probably think getting a top 10 pick at a rookie scale contract is better value than having to pay Kuminga increasingly high amounts going forward.

Considering the strength of this class, I'm inclined to agree. Like, Taylor Hendricks would be a better player next season than Kuminga, I'm fairly confident-- especially for the Warriors. Maybe even someone like Gradey Dick, someone who can play the Christian Braun role from Day 1 in all likelihood.

I'm no salary-cap-ologist... but Poole and Wiggins combining to make 53 mil next season, 57 mil in 24/25, and nearly 62 mil in 25/26 feels like it's going to force GSW to have to make some decisions purely for money reasons in the coming year or two. (Unless they can deal Poole somehow.)

179. "Why not? Plenty of them in this draft."
In response to Reply # 178


  

          

The problem with the Warriors' strategy wasn't drafting young players-- it was drafting OAD players. You know what players were drafted right after Kuminga that were older than Kuminga? Franz Wagner, Davion Mitchell, Chris Duarte. Who was drafted right after one-and-done Moses Moody? Corey Kispert and Trey Murphy. All but Kispert made an immediate impact year 1, and Kispert's a 42+% 3-point threat by year 2. They all would've played very real minutes for GSW this year.

And, frankly, the Warriors *need* to use rookie-scale deals on players that can help fill out their bench immediately, because outside of the mid-level exception, any deal they make will be either rookie deals or veteran minimum contracts unless they make a serious trade to free up money.

It doesn't really benefit them in any way. It stops a Melo to the Knicks or KD to the Suns type deals from happening where the trading team gets gutted.

Dear (ThaTruth),

I hope you enjoyed this NBA season – one of the most competitive and unpredictable seasons in the history of our league. And none of it would have been possible without passionate and dedicated fans like you.



Fortunately for basketball fans everywhere, there is so much to look forward to this summer with the NBA Draft and NBA Summer League around the corner and the WNBA season in full swing. Stay up to date on the latest league news with the NBA and WNBA Apps.



On behalf of the NBA and our teams and players, thank you for all your support.



Sincerely,


Adam Silver

NBA Commissioner

In response to Reply # 191


  

          

Even if he has gaudy stats and Memphis makes the playoffs, he'll still miss too many games to make one of the All-NBA teams, correct?

Main reason I'm asking is to check to see badly this 25 game suspension will mess with his paper; I'm assuming All-Star and/or All-NBA nods are added incentives in his contract.

For the record, I think dude got off quite light, given that Silver seemed to infer he had added evidence outside of that second social media posting.

Personally... I would have been happy with more this time around. Gun violence is a big problem. Gun safety is a big problem. People with enormous platforms generally acting like idiots with guns is a big, big problem.

But you can't just hand-wave away things like precedent (or maybe lack thereof, in this case) and who knows if dropping the hammer on him too hard puts us in martyr territory on this one.

If/when this happens again, that's when he sits a full year.

209. "That apology to his sponsors was a nice touch."
In response to Reply # 205


  

          

And I'm not being sarcastic or snarky; at least he's being up front and honest about his fear of losing his Nike/Powerade/what ever other sponsorship deals he has or had before these suspensions.

This summer and off-season will be an interesting one for him for sure.

237. "feels like a copy and paste of his last apology"
In response to Reply # 205


  

          

it doesn't really mean anything w/o action at this point.

Also reads like it was written by a PR person - which it has to be, i guess. I'd respect a statement more if it was like 'listen, that was dumb as shit, i don't know why i did it, i was just being dumb and need to work some people to get my shit together'. I know that would never happen, but something less honest and less polished.

I'm not really mad at Ja on a personal level or anything, and i'm also not mad at the suspension one way or another. Mostly, I just want him to stop doing dumb shit, so we can go back to focusing on his game, which is really unique and fun to watch.

222. "This seems reasonable."
In response to Reply # 191


  

          

Silver was being quite dramatic about it, honestly. Would it have been an issue during the finals? Probably. But it was already.

Hopefully he takes this seriously. He's way too damn talented to blow it.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

This is reasonable, but it isn't so bad that its announcement would have disrupted the finals.

And, of course, it puts Morant back on TV by Christmas, which is when most people start paying attention to the NBA.

210. "I have a feeling"
In response to Reply # 207


  

          

the league office and the Player's Association brokered a deal behind the scenes to lay down a 'fair' suspension.

Time will tell of course if Morant will actually learn his lesson.

the league is wrapping up its investigation and we'll have an announcement in the coming weeks.

AFter the announcement, if they wanna say they didn't wanna distract from the finals, then fine.

Unless there was some other goal in handling this way, i'm often amazed and how poorly organizations handle things publicly.

At least 15 games worse.

But 25 games? Cmon. Just pretend like there hasn’t yet been a decision made and keep it moving. It ended up taking on a life of its own because of Silver.

Ja technically didn't commit a crime that's what took the league so long in making a decision and comptemplating the NBAPA pushback Silver was just popping shit.

Similar is the Udoka thing with Boston they didn’t fire him outright initially just suspended because legally he did nothing wrong

236. "Probably helps that the NBA's PA is a lot stronger than the NFL's"
In response to Reply # 234


  

          

In the NFL, Goodell was suspending players for breaking NCAA rules, and met with little resistance since the league neutered the union years ago.

I remember the NBAPA did fight with the league over Malice in the Palace and Stern's self-proclaimed unilateral decisions to suspend everyone, and they ultimately had to back down. But that was players running into the stands and knocking out paying customers, whereas in this case, like you've said, technically nothing illegal happened.

Exactly that was a completely different situation, actually assault charges could’ve been filed and I think the guy Artest hit did file a civil case.

Ja just held up a gun on social media not pointing it at or threatening anyone

successfully done anything after a suspension? at best, the player might get their money...but they still miss games...which is still a W for the LEague.

has a suspension ever been reduced?

he didn’t shoot anybody, yes holding a firearm on social is a bad look but he didn’t threaten anyone and Tennessee is a open carry state. If he had done the same think in nyc it would’ve been totally different

In response to Reply # 233


          

That extra fame and money comes with extra responsibility and scrutiny.

“Did he break the law?” is fine for the average NFL player that nobody recognizes but Ja out there inviting someone to test him and the NBA is supposed to just sit back and hope nothing happens to the cornerstone of one of their franchises and potentially the league?

Nah that money and fame comes with strings attached.

238. "'legally' is kind of a hard word to pin down in this case. "
In response to Reply # 229


  

          

like waving the gun in his last video was not illegal. I get that.
However, Ja is turning into a habitual line stepper, so Silver put his foot down. If we were to base his suspension on this latest incident, I don't think there would have been a suspension at all... HOWEVER, Ja had a list of priors the included either video evidence of some illegal shit, or some decent circumstantial evidence of some other illegal shit.

Off the top:
- Drinking and waving a fire arm in a strip club (pretty sure that's illegal even in VIP)
-Scrapping w/a mall employee over some drama w/your mom (we don't really know the specifics, but potential illegalities there)
-Potential assault on someone who you were hooping with at your house, where a gun was involved. (again, not 100% sure there was a crime here)
- Your friends or your people pointing a laser at an opposing teams van. No evidence that it was a gun, but seemed like the message they were sending

I'm no CBA expert, so it's whatevs to me tbh. I want Ja to get back to hooping. 25 games for this incident given his priors seems kinda fair, especially because he made Silver look like a pussy after that last incident.

All I really know is Ja is lucky he doesn't play in the David Stern era. Stern would have murdered his dogs, set one of his cars on fire, and then told Ja he needed to step away to play minor league baseball and 'find his passion' for 6 months. Silver seems to be willing to meet him halfway, at least.

There was only potential legal trouble in the first incident in Denver where the gun laws are different and there were questions about whether or not he took the gun on the team plain.

All that other stuff is speculative and unproven this no charges filed.

Stern couldn’t have done crap either.

Exactly why he's looking at a suspension from his job (which may or may not be viable based on the current CBA) and not looking at jail time.

Complaining about officials isn't illegal, but it can get you fined and/or suspended by the NBA.

Like, I don't think anyone would have been ***surprised*** if the suspension was 40 games. Especially with all the shit that Silver was talking. It might not have been the right thing to do, but envisioning a world where Silver puts the hammer down in hopes of making an example out of Morant wasn't far-fetched.

208. "Mike Dunleavy, Jr. named Warriors GM"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Not a surprise, considering he's been in the org for years and has been assistant GM since like 22017/2018. They weren't going to bring in someone from outside the organization, it was too early for Livingston, and it's a better choice than one of the Lacob kids.

I will say that overall, I was surprised to find out years ago that Dunleavy Jr. was back in the front office, considering how unspectacular and disappointing his career as a Warrior was. Trading him and Troy Murphy for Jax and Harrington basically turned the season around during the "We Believe!" year. But apparently he's good in this role. Let's see how he does this off-season.
