Yeah! Now we're just going to be straight up terrible. Which is ok with me.

Good line from Doc Rivers, when told Paul Pierce also considered retirement: "I saw his contract, I don't think he was going to retire."

Lol

Was just reading that

Interesting stuff

[QUOTEWhen Lowry was traded away and Dragic signed with the Suns you guys went from two starting quality point guards to none. From an outside perspective it looked like fairly inept managing, what was going on internally during this time. Were you confident you could get Jeremy Lin? Were you rolling the dice?

First, I would refer to my #2 answer here. Each move makes sense under this lens. The guaranteed lottery pick we received from Toronto for Lowry is more valuable in acquiring an all-star level player. Dragic wanted a player option (that Phoenix gave him) which greatly harms a players value and will almost always lead us away from #2. A player option essentially guarantees that a team ends up with either a free agent (not valuable) or a player who the league thinks is not valuable and blocks your salary cap flexibility.][/quote]

Found that interesting

Jazz Statement on Raja Bell
SALT LAKE CITY (September 28, 2012) – Utah Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey issued the following statement today regarding guard Raja Bell:

“I have spoken with Raja and his representative, Herb Rudoy, and we have mutually agreed that although Raja remains under contract, it is in the best interest of all parties that he not re-join the team next week when the Jazz begins training camp. We will now move forward focusing on Jazz basketball and our preparation for the upcoming season. We will have no further comment on this matter.”

At least ESPN agrees with me. A lot of Cavs fans have been really delusional with their expectations for the season.

Gonna be a mess for the Cavs again but I think they can be solid in 2 years

They should get a top 12 pick again this year. But I do love Kyrie as their future PG. He is way better than I ever imagined he would be when he was drafted

The Thunder will be unveiling a new third jersey sometime during the season.

It would've been an exciting move, but they've got a solid foundation. I'm still not all that enthused about Waiters, but hopefully he'll look better with Scott's conditioning program. It's the Kyrie Show though, so I can't complain. The kid's undoubtedly going to be a top 10 player in a few years.

A mess? They were a top 8 team in the East last year until Andy got hurt. If we can stay healthy we'll be a low-seed playoff team.
