    Projected rotation

    Maybe us amateur fans should just close this site and let the professionals do their jobs? After all is there any amateurs in here that dare to question or speculate anything this franchise has done for the past ten years? After all it was professionals that were doing the job and obviously...

    Projected rotation

    I hope its something like this Fox 33min/Joseph 15min Buddy 32min/Bogdan 16 min Barnes 20min/Ariza 20min/Bogdan 8min Bagley 18min/Barnes 12min/Bjelica 18min Dedmond 24min/Bagley 14min/Giles or Holmes 10min First of all I would stagger Fox and Bagley a lot so either one of them is pretty much...

    Trevor Ariza 2 years $25 mil

    The question with Arzia is how much he has left in the tank. Last year was quite bad but 17-18 season he was actually a very good and valuable player. 17-18 out of all small forwards he was 9th in rpm and Barnes for example was 57th. Ideally Ariza brings premium skillset (good shooter and good...

    The All-Purpose LOL Lakers thread

    Lakers really lack ball handling offensive creators and Boogie could help them create some offense in the regular season. If he accepts that at this point of his career he wil be just a role player in a good team, that could be a good signing for the Lakers. Also he could be an occasitional...

    The All-Purpose LOL Lakers thread

    Career production doesnt mean just rings and there is much more to consider than just rings when evaluating players career. Throughout his career Lebrons quality of play and statistical output is up there at the very top, definetly much higher than players like Kobe or Duncan. There is also...

    Yogi decision should come today or the 4th

    Yogi is much more valuable than Mason so hopefully we keep Yogi as a replacement in case of injury/rest for Fox/Joseph

    The All-Purpose LOL Lakers thread

    Tbh Lebron is without a zero doubt top 3 all time player. Such a long career producing absolutely top level value every year. Its not really even an argument. His career production puts him a lot closer to MJ than players like Kobe, Duncan and Bird. Yeah he might be a Laker now but that doesnt...

    California Classic Game 1 Kings versus Warriors 7/1/19

    Swanigan could be just cut. He is a short, slow and literally a fat big man so he has very little use in the Nba. I dont see any potential unless he drops +20 pounds and gained significant quickness and mobility. I mean if you are so fat that you cant run or jump, you probably wont be playing in...

    Trevor Ariza 2 years $25 mil

    Zbo and Hill signings were straight garbage the second they happened. The team was in a situation where they clearly wasnt going to be competetive and cap space should've been used to gain assets. I can remember that there was clear excitement in here about those signings and obviously the...

    Trevor Ariza 2 years $25 mil

    I like this signing. Premium position, position of need and adds a lot of depth and versatily. Will probably close a lot of the games with Barnes and Bagley. Very good job

    is it going to be Dedmon?

    Oh yeah I might have been looking at his numbers from year ago. And you are right. Average defense would be a good accomplishment from this group. Bagley was a liability last year, Hield is probably average at best, Barnes is average and Fox is above average so the road to success for this...

    is it going to be Dedmon?

    Dedmond is 1.052 points per possession as a pick n roll man and thats 45th percentile so not spectacular but Bagley should get more of those possessions anyway with Dedmond spotting up more. A lot of the defense depends wether Bagley developes from bad to average. Locking up Barnes ment that we...

    is it going to be Dedmon?

    Willy might provide more value than Dedmond besides Bjelica since Bjelica is a great floor spacer and mostly a catch and shooter. Dedmond will provide more value besides Bagley since Bagley would gave much more room to operate on low/high post and as a pick n roll screener. So in this case IMO...

    Harrison Barnes Likely to Receive $88 mill over 4 Years

    Thats another example where you get the whole stat wrong. That Tobias Harris 0.3 VORP number is calculated on his 27 games with philly. For the whole 82 games that season his VORP was 1,8. Also anyone who is paying Oubre anywhere near 4/88mil is just stupid. Edit: apparrently esp was little...

    Predict who will be the Kings starting Center next year!

    If the options are giving a value asset for Capela, paying 50mil/2 for Adams, 100mil/4 for Vucevic or 112mil/4 for Horford, I'm leaning more and more heavily towards Horford. Horford is easily the best player and easily the best fit and his style of play should let him age better than most...

    Harrison Barnes Likely to Receive $88 mill over 4 Years

    Apparrently you are including me in that little generalisation and I sincierly hope thats not your actuall conclusion on opinions that argue for example that trading picks for cash isnt maximizing your assets and that Harrison Barnes isnt probably quite worth 88mil/4. But what can you do...

    Harrison Barnes Likely to Receive $88 mill over 4 Years

    I dont think any smart/good analyst ever suggested giving significant assets for Barnes would be a smart thing to do. I think that the people who are questioning this contract arent saying this is an overpay of 1-2mil per year, I think they are saying its closer to 5mil/year overpay and...

    Clint Capela may be available

    Thats the thing, its very hard to find that high end specific fit. Thats one reason I would really like to find out wether Bagley can be the center. Ideal high end fits are probably guys like Davis, Embiid, Horford, Turner but those are hard to get so other option is to get cheaper guys that at...

    Tobias Harris

    Good analysis and I agree with you on it other than getting away with a more standard center. I mean we could get by but imo it would limit our ceiling considerably. For me the highest ceiling for this team is that if Bagley becomes adequate as center defensively. The offensive potential would...

    Clint Capela may be available

    Dave said that he would trade 21' 1st for Capela even if he knew that pick was #3 on that draft. Thats horribly overrating his talent, horribly underrating the value of #3 pick and completely disregarding the non ideal fit with Bagley.
