The Celtics got Brogdon and Gallinari for basically nothing?  WTF?  The Bucks may have to make one more move.

Gallo was a free agent, the Spurs bought him out.

But the Celtics better hope Brogdon works, cause even if it didn't cost rotation guys, it took all their young cheap talent.

Wow.....incredible trade.  It better work or they won't be good for like a decade.

I saw the headline and my first thought was that this has major Nets-style disaster written all over it.

I feel like the Kings are doing whatever it takes to slide into that 8 seed and end the drought, not actually trying to win anything meaningful.

Gobert and Towns paired together to be the softest front court in NBA history

Can you be a three-time DPOY and soft?

Regardless, this trade has a chance to blow up spectacularly for the T-Wolves, and I'm here for it.

I think the Blazers and Jazz should trade off having Dame and Mitchell in alternating years or something. It doesn't seem right to have to have them both on rebuilding teams stocked with picks simultaneously.

Great to see #5 get a new contract from the Warriors. I wonder what 82 thinks about it, he has been awfully quiet the last 24 hours.

I've reached out and extended my congrats to the Looney family. Hope I didn't piss off Hards by doing so. As for 82, its probably better to leave a sleeping dog lie, hey?

I do not care if you do anything with the Looney family.  Just thought it was funny that you're name dropping like our boy Cheeks used to do.

There are people here who think he is top 10 all-time. That is overrated.

No. It is not.

His legacy is tarnished for sure.  But that does not mean he's overrated. 

His legacy isn’t “tarnished.”  That’s silly.

No. It is not.

I understand your point. I think Steph is now a borderline top 10. I rate him a bit ahead of Durant.

And Giannis is a better player than Durant. He is now and if he remains healthy, he will be historically.

He is now. But this year is probably the first year that is true.

Double Dribble,

My guess is 82 is in a long overdue vacation from scoop. He should have been blocked a long time ago.

No. It is not.

Trying to come up with an argument for Durant being top 10 all time.and drawing blanks..
25th career win shares
22nd career playoff win shares
14th career win shares per 48
16th career playoff win shares per 48
15th career VORP
9th career playoff VORP
Top 3 players in similarity score: Garnett, Barkley, Erving.
1 MVP (15 players have 2+)
2 rings on stacked teams.
Great player and obvious first-ballot HOF. Great case for top 20. Not so much top 10.

I'd love to see the Lakers trade Lebron and Westbrook, for Durant and Kyrie.

Durant, Kyrie, and Davis win a title.

Can you name 20 better players or are you just going to look at win share stats?  I would say he has more than "a case" for being top 20.

Agreed.  There is no question Giannis' potential is solidly in the top 10 historically.

1. Why would I need to name 20 players to argue he's not top 10?
2. Pretty sure I offered more than win share stats.

Again, I have him outside the top 10 as do many others.  That doesn't make him overrated.

Pakuni didn’t say he was overrated. I did.

He is a great player. Also a high volume shooter and I think those guys are rated higher than they should be.

He's not a high volume shooter among the top all-timer scorers per game.

then why comment at all...as i said earlier-self discipline ain't in your repertoire. 

  name dropping can be really cool especially how doc got to know keevon as a young kid.  being able to watch someone grow and develop into the people they have become.  hards hates this because he doesn't know anyone and hasn't become anything in his own life except a scoop nerd

It is very cool that Double Dribble has known Kevon most of his life. It is far from name dropping when you have a long personal relationship with a family. It is far more entertaining than reading most of the crap posted on here.
