    yeah I think you may be jumping the gun a bit there.
    Still a lot more loaded teams in the West.

    Raptors did a great thing but dont see a dynasty . Although that Bucks team is going to be good for a while

    my sister lives in pacifica and has lived in the bay area for 30 years since she went to berkeley and they have been warrior fans for a long time. her son is 11 and tight with my son and so my son is as much a warriors fan as a blazer fan. he went to bed at half last night and just stuck his head out of his bedroom to ask me who won. when i told him he rolled his eyes and went back to bed.

    I don't think Klay is out for all of next season. ACL is not usually a 12 month injury unless there's tons of damage.

    And for whoever said the Bucks would be good for a long time, they actually have some difficult contract situations.

    NBA 2018/2019 thread

    Dubs for next year:

    No KD or Klay.
    Steph and Dray
    Gonna have to re-sign Draymond.
    Re-sign Looney (have Bird Rights; can sign for whatever).
    Livingston retires.
    Can see Iguodala staying for a last year for $16M.
    Boogie leaves for more than Dubs can pay.

    If a player is seriously injured, his team can apply for the disabled player exception to replace him. In order for the exception to be granted, an NBA-designated physician must determine that the player is “substantially more likely than not” to be sidelined through at least June 15 of that league year. If granted, the disabled player exception allows a club to sign a replacement player for 50% of the injured player’s salary, or for the amount of the non-taxpayer’s mid-level exception, whichever is lesser.

    Dubs may have $9M to spend next year for Klay’s replacement (Recruit Danny Green or Trevor Ariza)

    Also, if KD opts in, they may have and additional $9M to spend on his replacement, too. Not likely but “you’re saying we have a chance...”
    (Rudy Gay, Marcus Morris or Terence Ross?)

    Other salary slots would be about $5.7M for Livingston, who will retire ($7.7M -$2M guarantee) (Rodney Hood or Pat Beverley?)

    $5.7M taxpayer MLE may also be available assuming Boogie leaves.

    thought they were set for a few, my bad.

    This Masai Ujiri not being allowed on the court at first is going to be interesting when it all comes out.

    interesting.

    the rockets brass are in such dire straits that rumors are looking at scraping and trading anyone, even harden. if the rockets could get looney, iggy or boogie; that might be enough to get past the warriors next year; that's what the raptors did and if kwahi leaves; rockets wining it all is not far fetched; but none of that matters as long as 9 of 10 plays are harden looks for his shot and passes out when he cant get it.
    Eat em up Houston Cougars !

    "Just a two minute rest, I'll be ready". That's what Klay told Kerr. With a torn ACL. After shooting two free throws with a torn ACL. That 's a Warrior.

    What a bummer having Klay get hurt in the middle of a legendary finals performance (30 points on 12 attempts in 32 minutes!). I'm kind of glad the Warriors didn't hold on and go to game 7 after that - being so depleted Toronto likely would have just killed them anyway. I said early on that if someone was going to beat us, let it be Toronto or Milwaukee (or really any team but Houston). It was a nice run while it lasted. Congrats to Toronto fans.

    The West is officially wide open next season. I bet the Warriors still max both Klay and KD and call it a regrouping year after playing so many extra games the last 5-6 years. My prediction is Curry competes for MVP next year averaging 35 per game (I mean, who else is going to score points?), they end up as the 6th or 7th seed and lose in the first round in a competitive series. Or maybe Klay returns late in the season and they pull off a first round upset and then get dispatched in the second round. Of course, something crazy could happen in the next several weeks so who knows.

    Looney will get paid by Dubs (Bird Rights; key piece; will get minutes)

    Iguodala has one year left and he’s prolly not leaving except to retire. If someone offered a trade for young talent, Dubs might trade him.

    Boogie is possible but what can Rox offer? Aren’t they capped out because of CP3? He’s gonna want more than they can pay.

    RealGM usually has good info on each team’s roster. Dunno about this time of year though. So much in flux.

    Odds makers think it's likely AD is going the Lakers. The Pelicans say they want the trade to happen before the draft and if that's the case then we'll know soon. I don't think LeBron is washed so even though it's an obnoxious hot take this far out either the Lakers, or the Clippers if they get Kawhi, could be the big winners in free agency.

    I didn't read the situation as the Rockets were actually going to tear down and rebuild but instead it was intended as a time to get your shit together fear of god kind of message. I.e. scrap the D'Antoni analytic inflexibility, trade Capela/Kanter, etc.

    I thought Harden did what he needed to do against the Warriors which is put up matching numbers against the Warriors first option. It's the rest of the team who failed to consistently play well. Gordon & Tucker had good games but they had bad games too. Harden even told Curry that he wished the Rockets would adopt a Warriors passing system instead of the D'Antoni iso attempt to draw a foul system.

    This is how I feel too. As a W's fan for 40 years, just really proud of them. It's been a great run. And with Lacob, Meyers and Kerr in charge, I don't think we've seen the last of this group just yet.

    Boogie is weird and Grant Napear is a fucking hack. Guy is like the Lowell Cohn of Sac. Mr Negativity with an unfounded superior attitude.

    Here’s how one King’s fan described Napear some years ago:

    Once upon a time I would hunt for recordings and podcasts from Grant on all things Kings but I have not done that in months now. I am sick of listening to this sleazebag that is only interested in being a mouth piece for the most dodgy owners in professional sports. His interests is not the Kings, its not being a realist in the debates, it is about sucking up to the Maloofs to the points where he is contradicting himself on a lot of things.

    He is a guy that you would never "go to war with" because he would sell you out at the first opportunity just to make sure his *** it taken care of. He has an ego the size of the pacific ocean and does not allow anyone to bring forward the argument that discredit him. He will just yell them down and move on. He is a dictator in the purest sense of the word when it comes to the media. I just hope there comes a day when we get new owners and these guys realize just how much of a slimeball this douche bag really is and show him the exit door so he can leave Sacramento with a tail between his legs together with the Maloofs because that is exactly what he deserves. I am sure the Maloofs will have a job for him at the Palms as a janitor, provided of course they are still wanted there.

    There are not many people in this world that make my stomach turn...this douchebag is certainly one of those people. I can't stand people with a lack of integrity and Grant wouldn't know the meaning of the word, let alone having any.

    In this day and age, can hardly blame courtside security from stopping someone without credentials, even if they are in a suit. Sounds like dude did his job.

    That makes it VERY hard for the Celtics to be involved, because they cannot trade for AD until after Kyrie opts out. So they would have to come to terms with the Pelicans, and assuming picks are involved (which seems likely), make the Pelicans picks for them. Then consummate the trade in July.

    Prolly still going to be priced out of my league at Chase Center, but maybe. Keep hope alive!

    For context, in 2015-2016, I went to Golden State of Mind Night on a group ticket for about $50 and it included a GSOM t-shirt. Dubs beat Memphis by 50 that night.

    Same upper bowl tix this year woulda cost about $110-$140 each.

    Get that down to $75 all in and I can take my kid to a game for $200 with parking. Add $25 for a couple hot dogs and a coke.

    Thats part of why it will be interesting.
    IF he didnt why the fuck not? The trophy is in the building, you dont give the President of the possible NBA champs a cred to get on the floor?

    Doubt he would toss it if he got it being a sports executive and all
