what did I tell you folks....   

I'm not here to show off because I have been wrong about other prospects (we all have)

But I had a feeling these two were going to be good NBA calibre players (after getting their feet wet).  Big players usually take 2-3 years to transition properly into the NBA

listen I would love to trade for these two because they would fit with this lineup/under CBS like a glove.   But I also really like the team we currently have.

Shot in the dark proposal
To Magic: 
To Pacers:

you know... there is nothing that would work...again I like our team.  Maybe after 4-5 years (their 1st contracts)  they could join as FAs or via trade.  Who knows

We have the best record in NBA and just won 6th straight and all you want to do is propose a trade?

Get some sleep TB!

What do you propose we give up?? Because it would likely take a lot

No doubt... It just wouldnt work.  Gordon at this rate is in line for a big payday also

I think Gordon, like Smart, will get overpaid based on potential. I'm passing on both at north of $20m per year.

I'm not that interested in Sabonis. Maybe if they can get his dad to unretire.

Gordon has played 5 good games. Sabonis 7. Let's pump the breaks that they will continue to play at this level. Its probably isn't sustainable for either player, especially Gordon. He just isn't the shooter he has shown himself to be this year,

I would rather have the players we have than those two guys.

First three years of his career he was pretty consistently around .290 on 3s. Now hes shooting 60% absolutely unsustainable.

I bet by the end of the year hes under 33%.

You think Marcus gets 20 mil a year?
