  1. 2018 NBA Trade Deadline

    Hey! Look at my pre-season predictions. I am spot on so far
  2. 2018 NBA Trade Deadline

    Trading for young guys and hoping they develop is not "win now". SVG and the front office didn't expect the core of Reggie/Drummond and others to win a championship as soon as they handed them contracts. They expected them to continue developing, and wanted to see how far that core could go down the line.

    For sure. Dealing him for nothing would be a monumentally bad decision. He is costing us next to nothing at this point. Only deal him if an upgrade is there.
  4. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    And why a lot of us are still pissed off at everyone who refused to listen to us when we said the dog whistle was being used. I see a lot of "liberals" on here and in real life who dismissed the concerns of minorities for years and refused to accept that a large percentage of America is bigoted.

    I'm sure you can find a way regardless

    Boban, Galloway & Leuer don't signal win now. They signal signing guys who should be in their prime to play backup minutes on a team of young players. Win now would be trading our 1st round draft pick this off-season for a vet.

    Tobias Harris was 23 years old when SVG acquired him. Drummond was 22 years old when SVG paid him. Reggie was 25 when SVG paid him. That is not "win now" mode. That is "find young guys, try to retain them and hope for internal improvement" mode. Win now mode is when a GM is trading future draft picks for vets, trading young talent for older players.

    Yeah, we are past a dog whistle. He is screaming it.

    Again - if you want to knock him for trades he DIDN'T make, that is a different story. We don't know what the offers were, and we don't know what was rejected by other teams. What we do know is that the trades he actually executed have been amazing. He has consistently won. So if he trades a 1st round pick, I am fairly confident it will be a good return.
  10. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    I had the honor of having a mentor from Nigeria when I was in college. He came to this country as a young man, leaving his family behind so he could earn an education and take advantage of opportunities that didn't exist at home. People like Trump and Tami Lahren look at that and say "See? He left his his country. It is a ****hole." But, if you actually talked to him, you would see how his country gave him the discipline, ethics, character and personality that prepared him to leave his home country and earn 3 degrees, be an excellent father to 3 children, an incredible husband to his wife and a pillar in the community. One time I asked him how he found the time to earn a PhD while working, taking care of his family and mentoring young students. He said he got that from his parents, who worked much harder than he ever has. When I needed advice on how to handle issues in my family, he gave me tools to manage the situation that he learned from his mentor in Nigeria. He spoke endlessly about the way his community in Nigeria supported his education, taught him how to be a man, and how to treat others. No, his country was not and is not a ****hole. It is a place that produced a beautiful human being who has changed the lives of hundreds of young men like me.

    Rumors are rumors. SVG has done nothing to signal "win now mode". If anything the team has been in "rely on internal developments from your young core" mode.
  12. 2018 NBA Trade Deadline

    It is all about who you get in return and who you ship off. I am fine with trading the 1st round pick if we get a guy who is in his mid 20s (at the latest), who propels this team to the 4th seed. I will be very disappointed if we get an average player who doesn't change the season for us in any significant way.
  13. 2018 NBA Trade Deadline

    If you trade the 1st round pick, you better not only make the playoffs but win a playoff series. If you trade the pick and miss the playoffs you are facing a complete disaster.
  14. 2018 NBA Trade Deadline

    Analyze every trade individually, and you will see that SVG is damn near perfect in that regard. Sure, there are trades he may not have made. But the ones he has made have been wins.
  15. 2018 NBA Trade Deadline

    What has he done to signal this to you? The core of the team is in their 20s. We haven't traded any draft picks. We haven't signed aging vets.
