#2831656 2014 NBA Draft Thread

Posted by Manos on 26 June 2014 - 04:18 PM

Hearing Clippers could trade Jared Dudley Reggie Bullock and #28th pick for Henderson. Just a huge rumor right now but it is confirmed the Clippers want Hendo.

Trade would make my day.


I would love that trade for us. I really hate hendo's fit with our roster though so if all we got was a second rounder I'd be ecstatic.

If Melo comes in and plays the 4 and we find a way to get a legitimate deep threat at the 2 we could be a really good team.

#2813908 Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs

Posted by Manos on 08 June 2014 - 11:54 PM

Btw, if you guys are going to quote me... do it correctly.

I said Kobe was all-business, not business-like.

All business means that he was all about the game and he never tried to be bigger than the game, it was all about winning.

Then you have LBJ prancing around doing Cam Newton's celebration... I mean come on.


If all Kobe cared about is winning he would have made it work with Shaq. As opposed to running him out of town so he could be "the man". All Kobe cares about is being better than Jordan. He never gave a poo about anything else.

Now as to the topic at hand Lebron does flop and bitch way too much for my taste. However, it doesn't remotely make him a terrible person. Which is how a lot of people want him portrayed.

James is single handedly keeping Miami in this game. Spurs better go break the ac quick.

#2805507 Friday NBA Draft Workouts

Posted by Manos on 31 May 2014 - 04:49 PM

MKG definitely has some positives, but that hitch in his jumper will never be fixed. I've never seen a guy with a form like his turn it around. Same thing for guys who are bad on the free throw line...they're just always bad at the charity stripe.

As far as his positives:

He has great length and athleticism. He's good at finishing on the fast break. He's a solid rebounder. He's a good not great individual defender. He would be a great piece if all he was expected to be was a role player or if he could make a defense pay for playing off.

All in all....he was probably over drafted because he benefited from a great Kentucky team. If we kept him I wouldn't be sad, but I just happen to think our best return on investment would be to trade him because he still has "upside."

Once again he has some positives, he deserves to be in the NBA....he's just replaceable for us, and we could probably use him to slingshot ourselves forward.


I understand where you are coming from I just don't want us to trade him and he puts it all together somewhere else.

#2805066 Friday NBA Draft Workouts

Well that's all affected by having MKG on the floor. When the defense has a 5 on 4 advantage shooting percentages tend to slip for the rest of the team. In basketball I'll take a great offense over a great defense just about any day of the week. It would be awesome if MKG was a power forward. Generally opposing SF's represent a critical defender....they can usually defend guards or help on doubles in the post. When you have a utility defender that can just leave MKG alone on the perimeter and free range help on our scorers it causes a problem. MKG might be responsible for preventing 8 points a game, but he's costing us about 15 a game on offense.


Well I think his negative impact on the offense gets overblown a lot. He really isn't that bad an offensive player. Yeah he can't shoot but he is a great finisher and offensive rebounder. If we had a competent offensive scheme that encouraged him to slash/cut to the basket for easy buckets when teams ignored him it would do wonders for his confidence and in turn his game/stats. As it is now all we seem capable of calling is Al postups and kemba "bail us out". Now I'll admit I'm a big mkg fan so I'm probably being over homerish but those are my thoughts on the subject.

Lebron made the right play in my opinion. Bosh was wide open but the shot just didnt fall. Cant blame a guy for trusting his teammates. If he had made the shot no one would be saying anything.

Yeah Lebron gets a ton of flack for passing to open teammates at the end of games and he shouldn't. He is making the correct basketball play. That being said he should have played waaay better tonight.

Hayward is NOT worth 15 mil a year. Any team who pays him that much will regret it big time.

I hate watching games like this. Chicago is mauling Washington and nothing gets called but even the smallest love tap is getting called the other way.

It is possible if mkg doesn't get in foul trouble and biyombo gets around 30 rebounds and 15 blocks....so totally feasible.

My god we are going to get crushed aren't we?

Posted by Manos on 20 April 2014 - 05:08 PM

As much as I like Zeller I wouldn't mind Biyombo getting some minutes in game 2, if for nothing else than to just have him come in a destroy some people driving to the basket. Yeah he will get ejected but it would be nice to see a heat player get crushed. If they are going to call this ticky tak bullshit we might as well earn the fouls by beating the hell out of them. And yes I'm very pissed at the moment Sent from my XT907 using CarolinaHuddle mobile app
