Philly going to get hit with tampering charges and not allowed to sign PJ?

Knicks going to get hit with tampering charges and not allowed to sign Brunson?  I mean, they had representatives sitting courtside at Mavs Playoff games...

Not sure where else to post it, but there are a bunch of NBA adjacent guys playing so...

I haven't been able to find definitive info, but it seems like the BSN, the Puerto Rican pro league, got an influx of cash this year.  I saw a couple scores when I was flipping through an app and then watched a few games cause they are all broadcast on Youtube.  A TON of bigger former NBA/top foreign league names that aren't normally in the Latin American BB pipeline.  Both Buycks and Jamil are playing there.  Kaleb Wesson, Thomas Robinson, Terrance Jones, Mitch Creek who usually doesn't leave Australia except for NBA looks, Check Diallo, and Skal Labassiere.  Plus a couple of the coaches moved from top Euro leagues.

Its actually really fun, high scoring basketball and the crowds are raucous.  I wonder how much the CBA not being an option has changed the dynamic of some of the American talent destinations abroad.  Also it being a summer league while the Euro leagues are off.

Are the Spurs tanking with the goal of getting Webanyama?

My guess…. The Bucks got screwed cause Bogdan’s agent wanted out of the deal cause he knew he’d get a better deal from the Hawks.

That’s not happening above because all parties want these deals to happen.

Yes. It’s a complete rebuild. They will compete for the No. 1 pick in next years draft.

Lol. I love how much drama the former Thunder guys have created in the last 24 months.

Overrated asset. The only way he has ever won a title was joining a team that was good enough to win without him.

The same will be true in the future.

No kidding.

Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Allen Iverson, Steve Nash, Reggie Miller, Patrick Ewing, John Stockton, etc. were all still great players.  KD having only won his rings with a dynasty doesn't make him overrated.

Overrated for the way he is talked about. He is not gonna win a title without an Alpha on the team. He ain’t it.

He was arguably the alpha on the two GSW championships he was on.

Jockey, I'm a Curry guy, but "overrated" is honestly insane.  He's still easily in the top 20 players ever and probably top 15.

Kevin Durant has the ability to score on iso, shoot off off the ball screens, can shoot from deep off dribble off screen etc, and a great ball handler…at seven feet tall. But yes let’s call him overrated.

Muggsy, I freely admit Durant is one of the top 3 most skilled players in the world.

He is not one of the 3 best. He cannot lead a team to a championship.

He has to have the right guys around him.  He came pretty close (by himself) to beating the Bucks in 2021.  I'm not saying he deserves a free pass or no criticism but he may have not known the level of Kyrie's insanity.
