Woj says strong consideration to Hoiberg coming in for T-Wolves. Maybe Boylen can then take over for Hoiberg in 3 years?

Anyone see Giannis' pass off of Harden's head last night?

That doinked harder than a Parkey FG off the upright.

"Significant" knee injury for Oladipo.  They fear he is done for the year.  Might help the Bucks down the road, but that really sucks.  The Pacers scared me more than anybody in the East just in that they'll ugly up a series for all 7 games if they need to.  And Oladipo can take over a game.

Brooks Lopez is averaging 2.1 blocks and 2.5 threes made per game. If he keeps that up for the entire season, he’ll be the first person in NBA history to average more than 2 blocks and 2 threes per game.

The NBA all-star game starters is kind of a joke.

Anthony Davis, who is having one of the best seasons ever isn't a starter.

Kind of a bummer way for it to go - i think he was either going to have a bigger role by the end of the year or get traded in the offseason anyway. This just accelerates that and runs the risk of slightly reducing the return with other teams knowing he wants out.

I’ve never seen someone use the pass to free himself up into open space like Steph Curry does and the Warriors are so good at looking for him and screening for him out of the pass. Markus should watch tape on that part of Steph’s game. It’s a thing of beauty.

Its such an under appreciated part of his game.  He sees an opening on the floor, gets rid of the ball to get there as it slows the defender down watching the pass and a potential screen, and then gets right back to him, its unreal.  He's the best shooter in league history but he's equally as crafty and clever with getting himself space.

Paul George threw down in Greek Freak's face.

Fun finish to the Bucks-OKC game.

Anthony Davis requesting trade out of NO.

Oh, and his new agent (as of September) is Rich Paul.

I bet Lebron had nothing to do with this.

Pelicans are in the driver's seat, as AD is signed through the end of next season. They don't need to be desperate. Plenty of time between now and the draft to get a primo deal.

You might be right about LeBron orchestrating this, but how many times have we heard that so-and-so was gonna join LeBron in L.A. only to see so-and-so go elsewhere?

And apparently LBJ doesn’t want Luke Walton out, but “his camp” does. Lol. How hilarious. Now LBJ’s “camp” is causing stirs AGAINST why LBJ himself wants. Totally makes sense.

They aren't completely in the driver's seat. AD can indicate which teams he'd be willing to sign an extension with. Of course a team could still take a risk on him like the Thunder did with Paul George and hope he will resign. 

Also his value decreases the later the trade is made.  Boston could be a destination but he can't be traded there until this summer for reasons I don't understand.

The NBA has a thing called the "Rose Rule" (named after Derrick) which allows teams to sign players to their second contracts above certain cap restrictions if that players has attained certain accomplishments, i.e. won an MVP, been all-NBA, etc. Under league rules, a team cannot trade for more than one player who's playing under a "Rose Rule" contract. The Celtics did that when they traded for Kyrie, so they can't add Davis (also playing under a Rose Rule contract) now. Kyrie's current deal expires at the end of the league year, so at that point the Celtics can re-sign him and then add Davis in a trade.
Hope that makes sense.

Thanks for the explanation.  It makes sense but it doesn't in an NBA sort of way.

This is exactly why Lebron is totally involved. By them announcing now that they want a trade it essentially gives the lakers a 5 month head to start to come up with something before the Celtics (who are definitely a leader for his services) and start to negotiate.

I'll say again that Pelicans have zero reason to make a panic-driven deal. Tons of time to trade him.

It'll be interesting if he ends up in L.A. Not saying it can't happen, just that I'll believe it when I see it.

My beliefs, too.  Boston has much better trade assets.  Davis is young, going to Boston allows him to be a champion for a longer duration.  Playing with the Lakers may give him a short term boost at a title, but how long does LBJ play?  If you are the Pelicans, you want the best assets which Boston > Lakers in draft picks. No rush.
