Can we all just take a minute to acknowledge and then laugh at the fact that Kyrie got traded before Carmelo...

I mean seriously, we've heard Melo trade rumors for like 2 years now, and then Kyrie says, "I want out" and in less than 2 months gets traded LOL.  :laugh:

We even heard a "Kyrie-for-Carmelo" rumor this past season and lots of people denied it saying that Carmelo is not worth Kyrie (TRUE), but also that Kyrie would stay in Cleveland long term and is not getting traded.  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

How time flies and how things change daily...

It's hard to trade a guy with a NTC.

That'd be yet another team with a legit shot of being worse than the Nets.

That's a sunk cost. Another team being worse than the Lakers would actually matter.

I know. It's just reassuring that the Nets are not the outright favorites for the title of "worst in the league" this season, given that we traded the pick for Kyrie.

They're still likely bottom-3 when it's all said and done, but Atlanta, Indiana, New York, Chicago, LA, Phoenix, and Sacramento will all likely be right there at the bottom.

Mentioned in the talks means that the Knicks asked for him, odds of them getting him unless they are sending out more than Melo is basically zero.

They're in a scrum with the other bottom 5 or 6 teams from what i can see, and the scrum is close enough that variance and random hot shooting nights (or bad ones) could put them out of the top 3 lottery slots. Last year injuries ensured they stayed number one, here is to BKN's health!

"The one guy"?  :o

Why hasn't it happened if the trade is there. They can't find anyone to eat the bad contract that the Knicks refuse to take on for dropping Melo, that hasn't changed. Portland is willing to eat Anderson but they need someone to eat their own bad contract so it doesn't actually help at all.

You rang?   ;D

That's sports reporting, sadly.

Jabari Parker is out probably until Feb. and coming off of his 2nd ACL tear.  He will be an RFA next summer and I would be scared to death to match or sign him to a 4 year contract.  Milwaukee has been saddled with bad contract after bad contract the last few years and I wouldn't doubt at all that they want to dump him.

I agree that parker has become a huge risk. His career is unfortunately a bunch of bad injuries.  Might as well move on

What's funny Is cp3, harden, and Carmelo all need the ball in their hands to be their best. I can't think of many other players that need the ball as much as these 3... All ball pounders. It honestly make no sense and feels like a cheap way to sell tickets with big names and not actually contend.

I definitely think Melo will end up in Houston.

But Parker is not going anywhere in a Melo deal.
CB Draft 2016:
PG:Tony Parker/Mo Williams
SG:Alec Burks/Manu Ginobili
SF:Al Farouq-Aminu/Jared Dudley/Tony Snell
PF:Dirk Nowitzki/JaMychal Green
C: Deandre Jordan/Roy Hibbert/Alex Len

Milwaukee is listed as the third team in the alleged discussions. Are they going to trade Jabari *and* take back the bad salary required to make a deal work? For what incentive?

Maybe they are just really nice guys.  ;D
