    Al's only got one year left. And I'm not gonna get into how stupid it would be to surrender a lottery pick for late-first rounders once again.

    Now now, if they're not Vonleh or Biz and they struggle as rookies, we have to give up on them.

    Realistically most people will call him a bust unless he's MVP-caliber. That's just how the "fanbase" operates. If we picked Justise and he averaged 10 and 5, he'd be the man. Every player gets a separate set of expectations.
    /Kemba scores 26, hands out 6 dimes
    "We need to dump Kemba for a 2nd-round pick," "Kemba sucks"
    /MKG gives up 62 points to Melo
    "It was Hendo's fault! He didn't do his job! MKG's our superstar!"
    /Frank has a bad practice (realistically he will have bad games too. I know. Fill the chamber)
    "Bust!" "MJ is the worst GM in basketball"
    /Justise has a decent rookie year
    "We traded Kobe 2.0 for Divac 2.0 but he's not even Divac"
     
    That's insanely unrealistic. Here's a little history lesson on recent No. 9 picks who were bigs:
    2002, Amare: 19.8 ppg, 8 rpg 
    2006, Patrick O'Bryant: 2 ppg, 1 rpg
    2007, Joakim Noah: 10 ppg, 9.5 rpg
    2012, Andre Drummond: 12 ppg, 11 rpg
    2014, Noah Vonleh: 3 ppg, 3 rpg
    No big picked at 9 has averaged 20 and 10 regularly, though Amare did for a little while.

    Oh Jesus here it comes already. He didn't make the All-Star team after one practice. Literally fug everyone who is upset about this with all the bags of dicks

    I could see Belinelli taking a multi-million dollar pay cut to not sign with the Hornets, especially since he'd have to compete with Lamb and Batum.

    Our team is sadly the Cleveland Browns of the NBA. It's got an owner with good intentions but who hires the wrong people who draft and sign the wrong people, then cover their mistakes with more mistakes as the court of public opinion continues to subject them to national articles denouncing their every move.

    Idk how people can literally ignore this fact. His defense was solid but he made it to where the other team could double any of our other four guys on offense because Biz turned games into 5-on-4 when we had the ball.

    Yep. People get emotionally attached to these guys, overrate them wildly and cry their eyes out when they realize they value them much more than league GMs do. But by all means, grab your new Clippers "Biyombo" jersey, plan for him to average 10-14-3 next year and then blame Doc Rivers and Ballmer when he averages 8 minutes a game and doesn't crack 40 points for the season.

    Honestly so many are overrating the guy like he's Bill Russell. I'd rather have him on the roster for defense, but hell. He's not. Time to get the hell over it and see which bigs can be ours for the future.

    Can't wait til Biz is an All-Star next year, averages 23/10 and is in the running for MVP

    Realistically if history is any indication?
    - Shoot a bit better than last year, but below career average
    - Facilitate the offense some, but defer to Big Al
    - Out-perform Lamb but get traded in January

    Now you're mistaking him with Bill Brasky.
