 If Irving went down with an injury for multiple weeks, I would tell him to sit and play video games with Hayward. Develop Rozier, Smart, Jaylen, Tatum. And raise the trade values of Nader, Semi, Yabu.

 Just need to land one of Bagley, Ayton, Or Bamba, than one of Porter, Doncic, Jarrett Jackson If we can add two of those guys to Jaylen Brown and Tatum that would be awesome.


 Bamba
 Porter JR
 Tatum
 Brown
 Irving

 Horford and Hayward just trade them for Boogie and Davis LoL

First off, there's no way we could make ourselves bad enough to compete with all the terrible teams in the league this year. And secondly we need to try to be as competitive as possible to keep the Anthony Davis possibility. He's not gonna want to play for a lottery team, and he's not gonna get traded anywhere he makes clear he doesn't want to be. Thirdly, that's what we have the Lakers pick for. Lastly, I really don't want to watch a awful team this year. So no.

Honestly,  enough of the Anthony Davis talk. Respect the players on the roster. We do not need Anthony Davis to win. He has not even made the playoffs in all his years in the league.

If 10 games after the all star break we are still below 0.500 then yes

He averaged 31.5 ppg during a first round sweep against the eventual champion Warriors in 2015.

People are going to be mad, but it worked great for San Antonio.

Of course, there is always luck involved with the lottery and also there's no obvious Tim Duncan in this year's draft. And Robinson was probably more important to that San Antonio team than Hayward is to ours.

Another rare thing about Duncan was that he was a 4 year senior who came in incredibly ready to play. If SA had received a 19 year-old Duncan, they don't necessarily win the title in '99. though considering how important big men were in that era maybe they still do with a prime Robinson and a 20 year-old Duncan.
Yo pretty boy. I looked up basketball player in the dictionary and it said 'Not you!'

Really, really different situation. Spurs lost not just one, but two of their best players in Sean Ellion and David Robinson in the same season. That's like losing both Kyrie and Hayward. Celtics already got their Duncan in their hands (Brown and Tatum), although not as good as Tim himself (yet).

Based on last night, it looks like the Lakers will tank for us.

We didn't even try to secure the worse record when we had a bad team, so tanking isn't in our future.
