We get superstar and people give an F? Unbelievable. That nets pick could be a Bennett type flop. IT wasn't going to get a max from usThe Nets pick could also be #6 or thereabout. And Thomas might miss half of the season with his hip issue. But people don't really see the question marks.
Agreed. People giving F's are over reacting to a draft pick. For the last few years people have been wanting DA to trade the picks for a legit star, now that he has they only wanted him to trade those for KD or AD type player. Those tier type players are going to cost a lot more than that.
From a Wojo interview rumor has it IT hasn't even started to run yet. A few weeks from training camp and he's not even running, let alone playing with some contact. He could miss a couple months at this point. Now I love IT and what he did last season, but I think a lot of the backlash is from his playoff performance. He was in God mode playing threw what he did unlit his hip did him in. And thats what we love.
BUT he had two good season with Boston in a system that was built for him, he's going to be 29 in Feb putting him at 33/34 at the end of his next contract making 25-30 mill a year. And he's taken a beating over the last couple years. And we don't see many guys under 6 feet play at high levels past 30.
Also a few months ago, before the play offs, there was the IT to LA rumors. Still could happen people. Especially when you factor PG13/IT All-Star stuff and after we didn't get PG13, this is a big possibility. And now that He's playing with LeBron, and his LA rumors, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw all three end up there. Lebron would have to take a pay cut, but he makes something like 50 mill in endorsements, I think he'll be okay. I expect IT to end up in Cali some wheres getting his payday next season.
With Crowder, he was so up and down last season it was painful. I mean at times some of us were wishing Brown was starting over him. And he was awful in the playoffs, and not good against LEbron. Brown was better, and now with Morris, Lebron will have it a little tougher against us. And was done with the Twitter B$##$#ing fest every time some one rubbed him the wrong way. Grow up!
Zizic...Well if this was 15 to 20 years ago maybe we could be really mad about that. But he was slow in summer league, and I get he may have been tired from his euro season, and he showed flashed of being good, he just lacked something that seemed not to fit in a fast pace system.
And the Nets pick. Who knows. We got lucky this year, but the East got bad, and most of the bad teams will be looking to tank, and the Nets will look to make the playoffs this year. Why? Why not, they have no reason to tank and they got a little better. LA's pick may be the one to keep, tougher schedule, tougher conference, might get lucky with that one. Anything top 5 should be decent, but who know could also be bust.
Irving is a great player. He's been playing behind Lebron doing what Lebron wants. Now he has a chance to play with unselfish players, and play for a REAL coach who has up just about everyones game that has walked threw the doors. People forget that if it wasn't for Irving the Cavs lose that championship. He kept the boat a float and could have been MVP. And Lebron gave little to no respect to that. No wonder he wanted out. It was all about LEbron and winning in Cleveland. I wouldn't want to talk to him or the people who were on their knees around him either.
Oh yeah, he just turned 25. Give him an extension, he's 30/31 at the end of it, Hayward is 32ish, and Brown and Tatum will be 25 and 24 and hopefully ready to take over. Potentially this gives the C's a better window to being dominate over the next 8 to 10 years.
