The NBA is bonkers. The CBA and deals given out to ordinary players is just absurd. No wonder the product is getting worse by the year
The product is getting worse year by year due to the amount of money the players are making?? I’m listening, let’s hear how that correlates

Wow that's an awesome deal for the Spurs getting an unprotected pick that far out for taking Bullock's expring. Good chance that Mavs will be post-Donicic at that point, while Spurs are hitting their stride with Wembanyama.

I wish Bulls pulled off moves like that when we rebuilt. We only had one extra pick that we wasted on "promising" 4 year college player Chandler Hutchison. Ironically the same amount of seasons he lasted in the NBA.

Well unlike the Bulls, the Spurs are a competent franchise that has one of the all time great GMs/coaches in Pop.

To be fair, bulls don’t have a “wemby” to build around. Everything becomes easier when you find that super duper star…at least that’s what we are presuming wemby to be

Well yes, obviously the ultimate factor in building a contender is finding a super duper star. Bulls had chances to tank spectacularly to try to get one in year's past but never landed high enough in the lotto to get that "bona fide" stud.

Adding salt to the wound is the appearance of former Bulls players doing well on another team. Another knock on this franchise could be their inability to truly develop talent, whereas a team like the Spurs seems to excel in player development, taking players you'd normally write off and developing them into very serviceable role players or better. However, this perception that Bulls players excel once leaving might just be a combination of recency bias and FOMO.

You know Pop just relishes getting one over on Cuban as a swan song he probably won't be around to listen to, but will sound just as sweet sifting a glass of red wine on a porch overlooking some distant early summer thunderheads clapping in brilliant flashes on a rugged Texas plain.

Holiday would be a get for us but i wouldn't part with any future picks.

This was posted yesterday lol:

Arguably, Holiday is too old to command a 1st, but it really depends on the player you're offering up front. Kinda similar to if you wanted to trade Demar imo

Wow, what a move by Milwaukee. Definitely puts them in contention for the next couple of years.

He commanded 2 of them (One in 2029 that is unprotected). I knew his price would be insane when i seen how much interest there was. They nearly got as much for Jrue as they got for Dame. Masterful moves by Portland.

This is brutal for the Bucks to have Jrue flipped to Boston. Miami gets double screwed as Milwaukee swoops in and snatches Lillard and now that trade turned into Boston getting stronger too. It feels better not to be the only team that gets screwed like this.
