    I'm quite gutted that KD has gone to the Warriors, I guess he's just looking at his best shot to win a championship. I just think they needed a few more players at OKC and they would have been able to mount more of a challenge, they got very close to taking the West this year.

    Going to miss watching Durant and Westbrook at OKC.

    Westbrook is going to get traded for a ton of assets, even more than when Denver mugged off the Knicks.

    Are you from NYC? or close by?

    Do people in America tend to support their local teams or is it much like in London where so many support the likes of Liverpool and Man U?

    I used to like the Bulls as a kid - glory hunting from Jordan, Pippen and Rodman of course

    I hate James Dolan more than life itself. Worst owner in sports and it isnt close.

    When you're getting fleeced by the Pelicans front office (and after assuring Cousins he wouldn't be traded) you know it's time pack up and go home. Feel for Kings fans tbh, there is fuck all to be excited about in that team for now. Only glimmer of hope, by free falling on the standings they have a good chance of grabbing a top 3 pick in what looks like a promising class coming up in the next draft

    New Orleans now has the two most exciting, talented, young-yet-experienced big men in the league paired together. They should cause havoc on rival frontcourts, and also playing pick and roll with a healthy Jrue Holiday in the backcourt both facilitating and launching from deep is an enticing prospect. Still remains to be seen exactly how good they could be given they're going against the grain here of modern nba (andin the playoffs it'll be very interesting to see how the Warriors handle them ), but it only makes it more fun to watch. :coffee:

    Kings giving the Knicks a run for their money after that one. Shocking trade. But they havent had a team legend arrested and banned from the arena for life ontop of calling him an alcoholic and saying he needs help because he spoke out against ownership in the past. And their owner hasnt dressed down a disgruntled fan yet for no reason. So Dolan still takes the cake.

    To further shed light on the incompetence of Kings ownership and Sam Hinkie also mugging them off aswell, Philly made a deal a couple of years back with Sacramento that earns them the right to swap first round picks with them in both 2016 or 2017. They didn't do it last year, so whit Philly only starting to look competitive and the Kings likely bottoming out and having great odds at a top 3 pick, Sixers could find themselves nabbing another potential star PG like Fultz or Ball in the draft, which would complete an insanely talented young core. Even worse, apparently they also own the Kings' unprotected first round pick in 2019, thanks to a complicated deal between Sacramento and Chicago, so even for the sake of rebuilding they're starting with the wrong foot.

    The real winners here are the fucking cavs.

    Pels will bully GSW inside, GSW will still probably win though as its AD+Boogie's first half season together. Then the cavs will sweep in with their fully rested 5 in the finals because the east is so fucking dogshit. Seriously, there needs to be another superpower in the east it's beyond a joke now.

    Listening to a couple of podcasts like Zach Lowe you realise that yes the Kings got a poor haul and should have at least waited until Thursday before green lighting, however....

    There were very little teams that had the needs/assets to trade for Cousins
    His reputation did put a lot of teams off from being interested.

    The proof will be in the pudding. On paper, it looks like the Pelicans did amazing, but what if it all blows up in their face because it transpires that Cousins is so toxic that he is a major disruption on any team ? Pairing him with his friend Davis probably gives a better chance for him to be happy than anywhere else, but we'll see.

    Haven't posted in this thread before. I'm a fan of all Detroit teams except NBA where its a bit muddy. Was a big fan of the Charlotte Hornets when I was a kid in the mid 90s the lost interest when they moved to NO. Now they are back as the Hornets so I have a developed a loose trio of teams that I root for - Hornets, Pistons and Timberwolves all of who are going nowhere right now. The T'Wolves have Towns, Wiggins, cap space and maybe another high pick this year though so it will be interesting to see where they are in five years.

    Can't shake the feeling we're still going to get mullered in the Finals. If Lebron pulls it off again this year against this Warriors team then we can have a legitimate GOAT conversation.

    Finals are dead now. Going to take a monumental effort from any team to stop the GS juggernaut in the next 3-5 years.

    Don't think they even have any major cap issues with their key pieces for the next 4-5 years.
