Boston is a better fit if they ditch Kyrie. Houston too, but they have a difficult situation as I understand. I'm starting to think he stays because just about everyone loses too much in order to get him and he just tries to neg Gilbert into selling the team. A Miami reunion is dumb enough to be possible though.

Also, honestly, I think the Sixers fail to get any of the big three names (let's be real that PG probably goes to LA) and I just about under no circumstances want Kawhi. I don't trust a thing about that situation.

What kind of deal do you think Jabari Parker will get?
(no second contract, forced to play in China)

Will Elfrid Payton sign for more than 8m/yr?
(league minimum)
Who will pay for Mario Hezonja?
(ANY TEAM WHO CAN)

Will Wade "Supercop" Baldwin get a second contract?
(NO!!!)

1. Probably not the rookie max, but it'll be a lot. People aren't used to the new cap and young players yet.
2. That's like MLE money, he'll get it. I'd wager on a KCP-like deal, 15+ mil but only 2 years + Team Option.
3. Good bet for a Spur that ends up WAY over producing on an MLE
4. Does G-League count?

Locking the thread about the finals less than 24 hours later? Do we always do this? Iím still trying to talk about the finals.

Lebron hasnít blamed the hand injury. If you donít understand why you hide injuries from your opponents, itís so they canít exploit them. This Is standard in every sport.

He did blame it, in fact, and unnecessarily so--he didn't need any excuses, and his excuse was embarrassing and immature.

Finals sweeps get us to off-season insanity sooner. And judging by how nuts this regular season was, this off-season is fixing to be the apocalypse.

1.There's no more leeway in any career other than rich guy's son than being a top 3 NBA draft pick

2. Do you think so? I think the lack of cap space is really going to slam his head in a window, possibly cutting his hair off. His only saving grace is that he was shooting 37.3% from three before he was traded to the phoenix graveyard

3. It's a tough spot for the Magic, because he overlaps heavily with Gordon, who's an RFA, and fournier, who has several years left. He really blew up when they gave him the ball and let him do whatever he wanted

4. Maybe

It might be more manly to never reveal it, but after the adrenaline and painkiller/anti inflammatory injections wear off, you'd probably want the cast too. We don't have to live in a world of twitter hot takes. He played really well in spite of having a broken hand. Steph Curry played well despite having some sprained ligaments. Igoudala did the same. It's the playoffs, a lot of guys play hurt.

He said his hand was "basically broken" and it isn't clear if it was an actual break. By games 3-4 it looked pretty normal. The embarrassing part was that it was self-inflicted, which means if it's a real break that he hosed over his own team.

Like, obviously getting hurt in a game is not shameful, but that's not what happened.
