Al Jefferson Signs for 3 years, $40.5 million

127 posts in this topic

Probably the best thing ever came out of you. Kudo

But it's more like this:

(1) Hibbert

(2) Noah

(3) Horford

(4) Jefferson

(5) Lopez

No need to Kudo me sir, I know my basketball and I called the Al Jefferson signing before FA. I know I wasn't here long but I called it.

 

 

Also Al Horford is a pf, he just plays center because the Hawks have no other bigman.

It's an overpay, but I think it's a good move in terms of length and the player. It's the biggest free agency move we've ever done and he's a great player at a position that we've fielded trash. Not to mention that, unless his skill set drastically erodes, there are teams every year looking to move assets for a big.

Nah, I've been hating on it since it was announced the Bobcats were interested. Just think it's the wrong year to add Salary to a below average team. I understand why the Bobcats made the move, but I think it was possible to wait till next year to make the major FA moves. 

 

What centers are going to be FA next year?   Cousins won't come here and Monroe won't be let go, so who?  We've needed a 5 like this for a decade, can't wait and hope someone actually wants to play here.  We got him pretty cheap honestly.

Most teams don't have offensive centers, heck the two best teams in the league don't have offensive centers. There's only a couple centers in the league that can even average 15 and 10. There's plenty of other things the Bobcats could have done with the money they spent. They could have waited and went after the more rounded player in Pekovic...ext... 

 

On top of that having a center that can't defend the pick and roll is a disaster just waiting to happen over and over again.

exactly how many championship NBA teams have you assembled?  I say trust the people hired to do the job.

No but I think the Thunder are doing pretty well though.  I'd be OK with their success the last few years.

Cho wasn't the GM of the Thunder though, he was more like an assistant to the GM.

The Thunder utilized Cho's background in both law and mathematics when negotiating trades, free agent signings, and interpreting the NBA's complex collective bargaining agreement.  This guy had a direct hand in choosing draft picks and building that team though.

    • It is the off-season and winning online competitions is kinda our thing.   Let's see if we can't swing this thing.  The Pats need to go home.  We must fight the Evil League of Evil coalition. 
    •   So are you upset that Hillary lost and we stopped investigating her?  Or that in an alternate reality, Hillary won and no one is talking about Russia?  I'm trying to see your point, but alas, you might be too clever for me. Or are we back to it's not fair to expect Trump NOT to have Russian ties because of business interests?  Again, all Trump had to do was completely break from his companies, and he did not.  And we're seeing some serious Russian interests in Trump winning, and a lot of contact between Trump's campaign officials and advisers, which is good or bad? I'm not sure the point you're trying to make.  Is it "yay, Trump won so we can investigate Russian interference with the election and administration!"  Or is it "Boo, if Hillary won she wouldn't be investigated!" Hillary lost.  People came out for Trump in the rust belt. Now that people are looking at Trump, what he's said, what laws he's trying to pass, etc; a lot of information is coming out.  Is that bad?  Or is it just that the media is being unfair to Trump? Maybe I'm just not smart enough to get it.
    • I highly doubt this will upset anyone, unless they are trolling that is.
