      Yea he can be the tough two point maker and possibly the closer for playoffs that’s something they need instead off all threes and lays up butler can can hit the mid range

    Kyrie to the Nets, DeAngelo to the Lakers, and Durant stays in GS and takes the max deal along with Klay.

      How about the Hornets just keep Kemba? Do we not rate a star player? Chris says Charlotte will give him more money than anyone else, well then why wouldn't the Hornets have as good a chance as anyone else to get/keep him?

        When Melo stayed in New York the narrative was "oh he only cares about money" and now guys are trying to go where they have a chance to win their way and it's "oh you're crazy to give up that much money." Like damn just let em live

            I think Kevin Durant should pull a Lebron and go back to okc

              How do we know he wouldn't fit on the Rockets we have never seen him play a single game with them. Pretty sure a guy that can play great defense can play off of the ball or with it in his hands would fit well with pretty much every single team. Butler just played with the 76ers with a team full of guys who are used to having the ball in their hands on offense. Yet he seemed to fit in pretty well. If he went to the Rockets you know how many good looks he would get either by CP3 running the PG or Harden getting doubled. I have heard this line be used so many times over the years and yet plenty of times that player fit just well with his new team.

                If KD goes to the Knicks, won't "people"
                say he's following Ewing's legacy, not creating his own.😋

                  Yeah, heard this before: "Harden is just a sixth man"... "Chris Paul is too ball dominate"... "Can't win without Parsons"... "can't win without Howard."... "Can't win without Ariza." Whatever! Just sit back and get ready for your mid season reversal.

                    Clearly Colin never watched the D'Antoni suns teams, hes literally turned guards into MVP's with his system

                      Colin is silly. Do I need to bring out every terrible contract in the NBA? The owners won't give up a penny they don't have to?

                            “Never give up a penny” I mean, you’re not wrong Colin but what if it had to be for family stuff or a certain company, you know? And plus, family and other personal reasons are way more important than regular money that you’ll get paid

                                  Wait, wait, wait. So Kuzma is now well developed now that that’s all your friend has Colin? Cause before you used to say that Kuzma has reached his ceiling already.

                                        Morey way of thinking. How do i calm down the Harden Paul feud.... I know put in Jimmy i fight with anyone, anytime Butler in there. What in the world could go wrong.

                                            The CBA was designed to keep the guys with these larger contracts for the former team... Thought they could control the players with money and are realizing it’s not working...

                                                  Don't forget the goal for most players is to win a chip, and build a legacy. Money comes and goes. Carmelo took the money instead of going to a team that could've won the chip like the Bulls and the Heat.

                                                    People act like the rockets have never done anything as a franchise. They’ve won back to back championships. And that wasn’t in the 80’s or 70’s, it was in the mid 90’s. And despite the media always trashing the rockets, they’re always in the mix at the end.

                                                    I mean, folks act like the rockets weren’t just in the WCF two years ago. They’ve been in the WCF twice in the last 5 years. They’re the only team that has actually threatened the healthy Warriors by taking them to 7 games.

                                                    Despite the Knicks, 76ers and lakers having done nothing of note, the media is way more optimistic about those franchises than they are the rockets.

                                                    Let the media tell it, the rockets don’t ever do anything right.

                                                      I’m for players taking money, but there’s a cap in sports. You can’t compare the to other businesses

                                                        Joel Embiid for Eric Gordon, PJ Tucker and 2 firsts. 76ers sign Jimmy Butler, JJ Reddick and Marjanovic. Sign and trade Tobias Harris to Utah for Joe Ingles and a 2022 1st. Try to sign Pat Beverly or Danny Green.
                                                        Philly would have great D, 3-point shooting and gritty players. Houston would be hard to beat in the West, as would Utah. Everyone gets better and Philly unlocks Simmons as a Draymond Green center. Marjanovic as backup center or to play Simmons at other positions when desired.

                                                          If your team is winning and you leave for less money that’s dumb. Your not happy living there? Rich people can be happy living anywhere. Plus your career is not that long. Go wherever you want when you retire. They act like they retire at 65 years old like normal people.

Who on earth would tell these players who mostly came from poor beginnings to give up 60 and 50 million dollars because I’m not “happy” lol
