    It’s fun to watch ballers ball, the way the NBA used to be, before it became a glorified 3-point shooting contest and one team with a line-up of all-stars.

    Does anyone else kind of love Orlando's core? Tue, 10 Jul 2018 21:23:19 +0000 /boards/threads/does-anyone-else-kind-of-love-orlandos-core.455153639/ /boards/threads/does-anyone-else-kind-of-love-orlandos-core.455153639/ (lipiti) lipiti Aaron Gordon

    Is a good three point shooting, super athletic, super long core with massive defensive upside. They're also probably bad enough to land a good draft pick next year.

    Fournier, Vuc, DJ Augustin, and Jonathan Simmons are all decent spot starters and good backups. First two have okay trade value, I'd think.

    The 8th seed last year won 47 games. The Cavs won 50 last year.

    Unless Lonzo learns how to shoot, they might be able to get the 7 or 8 seed but they really need to improve if they want to even compete in the West. Lebron is going to turn 34. Do you really want to take a season off and wait for Kawhi?]]>

    For Lakers, it's looking like they won't get Kawhi. So they take the cap room they spent on dumbasses KCP, McGee, Rondo and Stephenson and send it to OKC to absorb Carmelo. They land LeBron's buddy, and they land a 28m trade exception they can use at the deadline or next summer to trade for an actual star.
