    Play for seeding?

    I am inclined to think Vassell will be there when we pick. Obviously I could be wrong but he is far from a consensus lottery pick. I'm curious as to why you like him so much? I don't dislike him as a prospect, but is there anything he does that Justin James doesn't? I know James didn't get much...

    Play for seeding?

    No idea why you're assuming Vassell won't be there when we pick, or that he'd necessarily be the best pick if we're to improve our position. Highly debatable.

    Thanks Slim. I'll have to wait another while to celebrate it properly!

    2018 Redraft Podcast

    The revisionist history about Joerger on this forum is actually nauseating, I don't think I've seen it as widespread anywhere else. And it gets more extreme with time. Joerger is the best coach we've had since Malone and better than quite a few we had before that. People forget how much Vivek...

    Bajadens 1st mindless mock draft for 2020:

    Agreed that it's unlikely Haliburton/Avdija/Hayes will be available when we pick, but stranger things have happened. I included them mainly because most mocks don't have them going in the top 3, but I guess that doesn't really mean anything, especially in this draft.

    Bajadens 1st mindless mock draft for 2020:

    At the moment, assuming we don't move up in the lottery, I'd be happy with any of the following guys: Tyrese Haliburton Deni Avdija Killian Hayes Tyrese Maxey RJ Hampton Aaron Nesmith Those are my top guys at our spot, and there's a good chance more than one will be available. I realise it's...

    Following Potential *2020* Draftees

    It will be interesting to see how the draft plays out amidst all this uncertainty. If there will be private workouts, a combine etc. Or if the draft will even take place in its current form. Everything is so up in the air at the moment.

    Coronavirus

    Not accurate. Those are confirmed cases which undoubtedly will rise dramatically over the coming days and weeks. There are many more people with the virus than the confirmed numbers, which is why they're rising so rapidly, as testing becomes more widespread and people unknowingly infect others...

    [Game] Kings v. Sixers- Thursday, March 5 - 7PT/10ET

    It's not. You're thinking of assists-to-turnovers. I don't think I've ever heard of steals-turnovers being used as a metric of value. I guess it makes sense somewhat, in that steals gain you possession while a turnover loses it. But it's not a commonly used stat and I hope it doesn't become one...

    The new Harry Giles on-the-court PERFORMANCE discussion

    I think Brick's departure had more to do with the Kings incompetence than as it did for his fondness of Boogie. Probably a lot more, actually. Although that was the straw that broke the camel's back.

    [NBA] Comments that don't warrant a thread (MAR-TBD)

    Not at all, I clarified my position in the last post. You've also moved the goalposts again, the cut-off point you created was "instant ejection" (a degree of severity of punishment) as though that is the only thing that qualify an act as outside the confines of the rules. This is going to be my...

    [NBA] Comments that don't warrant a thread (MAR-TBD)

    No, you've created a cut-off point which is automatic ejection. You do t get to decide that's where the line is drawn. Both fouls and brawls are penalised to different degrees because they are both against the rules. One is just accepted as a normal part of the game. Your second paragraph is...

    [NBA] Comments that don't warrant a thread (MAR-TBD)

    You've now moved the goalposts from "within the confines of the ruleset" to "part of the game". I'm not saying fouls aren't part of the game. Disqualifications are also part of the game, that doesn't mean they're playing within the ruleset, unless you do all sorts of mental gymnastics to argue...

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    It's not possible for us to match any offer he gets. That's why people are upset. It was another terrible decision by the front office that will likely end up with Giles on another team next year. If we manage to keep him, it will be in spite of our decision making, not because of it.

    [NBA] Comments that don't warrant a thread (MAR-TBD)

    They're not, otherwise you wouldn't be penalised for them. But it was a nice quip that garnered you a few likes. In any case, the point was that players and fans shouldn't be getting all butthurt just because someone does what Trae did. Getting all upset and flagrant fouling someone is pathetic.
