Look at Brad stevens with the Celtics....this is a players league...if your players don’t perform you won’t win

Boston has been hit with crazy injuries but Danny Ainge is an amazing GM.  He knows talent better than any GM out there.

We almost traded Monk plus picks for Julius Randle last season.  Knicks backed out but that type of discussion tells me Kup knows what he is doing here.

Lets just say it...the NBA superstars decide who wins ships.  I hope not this year but like 4 teams have a shot every year.  Its rigged.

I normally don’t buy in on any conspiracy theories but ever since we got hosed by stern on AD I’m not gonna dismiss it

I mean Embiid, Giannis, and Steph were all drafted by their current teams. They attract free agents from being in good GM/Coach situations. Lakers and Nets are playing that Superstar free agent stuff and it's kinda working but not a lock for a championship

So basically it's like the Panthers going from John Fox to Ron Rivera. At this point who is the NCAAB version of Matt Rhule?

Let’s just start talking about the draft now. Who do y’all want? Maybe the NBA will rigged it once again for us this year. Let us add someone to pair with Lamelo. 

Great idea. Let's start 5 guards!

Golden State did not start attracting free agents until the Steph and the other drafted guys started winning titles. Embiid and Giannis haven't attracted other superstars yet either.

The Lakers won the title last season and are favorites to repeat this year. I'd say it is working well for them. The Nets are the team to beat in the east, so it's working well for them as well. Both are in the biggest markets in the country. That is a big reason those superstars went there. The Lakers also have their storied history to attract guys.

If the Hornets are going to have superstars, they better hope they can pull off a repeat of what Golden State did. Guys aren't going to come here just because Jordan owns the team or that LaMelo is here.

Need to build a better culture. Losing the way they did last night is a great way to deter higher tier free agents from signing here. Unless you throw them a whole bank vault like Gordon Hayward and we see the returns of that move aren't looking so hot.

Cliff and now JB were supposed to build better cultures. Didn't workout so well with Cliff. Results are looking iffy with JB as well.

Who needs rebounding and shot blocking? Let's just have 5 guys shooting threes with no rebounding. The defense bothers me. They are very spotty with the defense.  At times they would have PJ, a Martin twin, Rozier, Graham and Hayward on the floor. He never got Carey or Richards involved even though Carey did well in the G league. At the end of the year when they were skidding, he should have tried something else. Zeller is a power forward at best, not a center. Biyombo- plays hard, just not an NBA starter.
