Coming around on Hassan Whiteside max... But also re-signing Roy Hibbert long term for a similar contract he signed 4 years ago.

Just would like the dynamics.. Like what Roy brings not just for himself, but what he would bring for Whiteside & Russell / Randle / Clarkson.

Also would get you out of worrying about Whiteside's FT shooting because if you wanted to Hack-A-Hassan, you can take him out, put in Roy.. You lose the athleticism, but retain your defense around the rim.



And you could do all that, all while preserving cap space for the big fish in 2016, and if he were to pass (could spend 85% of the cap space in 2016 left after Hibbert & Whiteside), and have a max or near max in 2017.

I'm all for maxing out Whiteside.

My only contingency is as long as Roy Hibbert is back as well, as I posted above.

No Roy, it makes me a little more weary on Whiteside because of the FT shooting... That could really disrupt a team that tries to get the ball and run.

Also want to keep his leadership with the young guys, that is well worth it. You need somebody who will light a fire, and has years in already.

Also, it wouldn't impact the ability to sign anyone at all, so long as they are smart elsewhere.

Take an L, but Randle, Clarkson, DLo and Nance all get good work in.

I can't turn away from this train wreck of a season, just 15 games in

So sad about what Buss has done to this team, from Brown to MDA TO $48 M to Byron, colossal mismanagement

Need to throw in Mitch on that. Can't give Buss blame and Mitch the credit.


Nonetheless, they draft well at least.

When you have an owner who's all in the videos...dancin....he gets the blame. If he empowered Mitch and was merely an owner signing off on moves, then ya I could see blaming Mitch

Jimmy boy is our very own Jerry jones

He is nowhere near the person you are saying he is. He doesn't take spotlight. He actually avoids it. But it doesn't matter anyway, the way the moves are made and how the structure has been described hundreds of times to the media, they do an equal amount of the work. Also if you want to go with what we do know, Jeanie is the one who pushed for Kobe's contract over Mitch & Jim. And also has final say over Mitch & Jim.

But if we do go based on what you're saying Then you must give him credit for drafting. And also give him credit for maintaining flexibility for the team long term and not needlessly spending long term cap or picks for Kobe post-Achilles.

I'm not talking about media spotlight. To me the best owners are in the background and empower smart people to make decisions. I believe the decisions about free agents ,drafting and coaches are basketball decisions that should be made by basketball people. Mitch is a basketball guy, jimmy is not. I don't think jimmy should have a seat at the table, he needs to trust people and be the final sign off on deals

As an owner when he has a seat at the table it's going to be hard for others to disagree with him just out of fear

You do realize Jimmy has been in the room and building this team with Mitch since like 03.

D'lo's last 5

13.4PPG
44%
38% 3pt
5.4 RPG
3.4 APG
1.8 TO

Getting more and more comfortable out there. He got the keys to the offense last game so you gotta watch out for him from now on. Seeing him wave kobe off and organize the offense is big.

Randle's midrange looked nice. He was starting to knock it down last year but yesterday his form looked better than ever. You can tell he really wants to be an all around player. Still learning to do work without the ball.

Clarkson is clarkson. Putting up similar/better numbers to what he did as a starter last year. 3 ball is very encouraging. Sees plays a second before they develop and attacks automatically, his offensive iq is razor sharp. Complete opposite on the other end, worst defender of the three but at least can play passing lanes. Whatever he puts his mind to, he'll be good at. Not worried about him at all. Possibly may have surpassed the likes of Terrence ross at this point.

Russell was the right choice...





Also Emmanuel Mudiay is 311th in TS% (out of 322... Sidenote Kobe is 304, so that's how bad Mudiay has been as a scorer).. He's also 408th in Real Plus Minus (out of 409 players).

Don't think its fair that you continue to say D'lo was the right choice after something happens to Okafor.

Lets be real, if you were picked by Philadelphia you'd probably lose your mind too.

D.Lo playing well as of late, he's actually a decent rebounder for a PG

He's a really good rebounder, rebounding like a SG which makes sense because he's 6'5.

It absolutely is fair... We got guys in here and elsewhere talking about Russell's attitude, his work ethic, he's a diva, and irrelevant **** like his eyebrows being cut. "We should have taken Okafor, look at Russell, diva, doesn't care, is immature."

Yet the guy we were supposed to draft, who isn't actually playing much better than Russell, if we want to look at basketball in you know, both sides of the ball. Is out here getting a gun pulled on him in October.. Doesn't learn his lesson and gets into another fight all over a heckler, after 3 weeks ago recklessly driving 40 mph over the speed limit.


So yes, it absolutely is fair.


As for the second part, about I'd lose my mind on the 76ers.. That's not losing your mind, that's being a ******* idiot. You would think after having a gun pulled on you, you'd be smart enough to learning your lesson. But nah, he doesn't. And if you think I'd be like Okafor as well, you don't know me well. I'm very disciplined in the things I do and don't do. I don't go to clubs, none of that. I don't drink. Didn't do any of it at 18, didn't do it at 21, don't do it at 26.

D'Angelo is playing on a **** team, with a coach that doesn't like him, and there is nothing even remotely similar being said about him.



So absolutely, D'Angelo was the right pick.

Na. He'll learn from all this. He's young and the video being released was the best thing for him. A good wake up call. We all make mistakes so I don't think any of this recent stuff is a big deal. 

 

From a basketball perspective Russell was the right pick. All this other stuff is just a 19 year old getting caught up a little bit. It happens.

Plus some solid overall defense. (And his assist numbers might be deceptively low thanks to Roy Hibbert laugh.gif)
