    My guy tells me this is a night to punt the C position. What do you guys think?

    Puddles and Portis seem to be what I’m leaning too. Is McGee viable abasing the Rockets?

    Crazy how fast his rise and fall has been. Keep thinking we will see Boston I.T. but just isnt gonna happen is it

    That’s why I bag on people who only score, even if it’s a lot/well— IT has always been able to do that and not a lot else. When you give someone the keys to the offense and let them shoot 20 times a game, most talented scorers will go nuts. Those guys aren’t valuable unless they do a couple other things, which he doesn’t. IT was super fun to root for in sacramento and boston, but objectively not that good. His one season was magical, and he seems like an OK dude (although his hoops mentality is garbage), but he’s not great.

    Pistons are working on a buyout for Reggie?

    Andre Drummond
    @AndreDrummond
    If there’s one thing I learned about the NBA, there’s no friends or loyalty. I’ve given my heart and soul to the Pistons , and to be have this happen with no heads up makes me realize even more that this is just a business! I love you Detroit…

    What a tool. Drummond had no heads up? Even though there’s been rumors for over a month?

    They probably just didnt tell him deal was done. Probably found out the same time as everyone else. I dont see how everyone else knew he was on trade block but him

    Damn, Clippers waiving IT.

    Man, every time I see IT being moved (or in this case dropped), I can’t help but think how close he was to a potential big contract if it wasn’t for an injury. I never thought he was worth a huge contract, even during his best run with the Celtics, but somebody would have paid him back then. Now he can’t stay on a roster for a full season.

    Well does RWB play? Sounds iffy. I love AD, but AD can’t grab all the rebounds, or maybe he can. LOL.

    I just don’t think Howard plays much at all. McGee might eat, but will the Lakers counter the small ball with small ball of their own? Need to figure out the game theory.

    I think AD could easily go 20/10 in the 1st half tonight, maybe in the 1st quarter…

    I doubt they need to counter but if they do it will still be a min. of 30 mins of Howard/McGee out there. If I was the Lakers I would just stay big and beat the hell out of Tucker and punish the paint all night long. But I may still be bitter over Hartenstein chalk night lol

    Yeah, well I assumed he’d have been kept for depth, since they moved Walton and I thought Robinson. I guess not.

  • RWilder

    Whats your take on NO/CHI? Kornet at the center pulls Favors away from the hoop, so it’s going to limit Favors rebounding ability, right? Favors theoretically should eat against CHI and get like 20 rebounds, but people on here touted him last game saying he was going to eat and he killed everyones LU. I know you want bigs against CHI for rebounding opportunities and with Zion in, it limits Ingrams rebounds. Is this the day that Zion is in the pain with Thad or do NO switch on D and put Zion out on Kornet past the 3 point line and keep Favors on Thad in the paint.

    Trying to figure out the last piece to the PF slot is going to be the key tonight. If you lock AD in you need to nail the last one, do you pay up for Zion, LMA, mid tier Favors, Young, Tucker or down to Kornet, Kuzma?

    I would think twice about Laker centers. They don’t need to have a big man on the floor besides AD. I’m thinking this is more of a Kuzma game than MCgee or Howard.

  • RipCityRings

    How many times has AD been in a smash spot this year and actually paid off? I agree that on paper he should be unstoppable vs Houston, but I can’t remember the last time he was in a winning lineup. If Westbrook plays maybe they both go off, but this game should be over in 3 quarters if not.

    I can get behind this. I think Kuzma is a great play.
