The Cavs succeeded in spite of Rich Paul. I respect that guy a lot for what he's been able to accomplish but he has a habit of overplaying his hand. If I were a GM I'd be really leery of signing his clients if I could help it.

Some random twitter people are thinking Griffin saying this may also just be a way to try to build up trade value for AD. I don't know what to believe. But things got ugly and I've gone to actively disliking the guy, so I'm down for trading him.

The quickest substitution in the history of the NBA

Spacebump posted:

I feel like an old man saying this but I kind of agree. I think the solution could be making the 3 point line a straight line and eliminating the corner 3s.

Letting defenders sag closer to the basket is not going to lead to more exciting acrobatic plays at the rim, it's just gonna lead to more midrange 2s.

Basketball before players became so good at shooting 3s was not more exciting.

I don't really object to the current state of the game, I think basketball is in an incredibly fun era, but I do kinda wish it weren't so min-maxed. I wish there were more room for the Paul Pierce pull-up, the Rip Hamilton run-around-a-bunch-until-you-get-a-14-footer, and Dirk imitators

I think the 3 point line should be abolished, this is a completely objective take not at all influenced by my team having Rudy Gobert on it

The good news about having a take for more than ten years is I can claim consistency over the Lakers being one of the better three point shooting teams in the league and one of the worst.

Make the 3 point line variable like baseball park dimensions. 27 foot line, 18 foot line, corner 3, no corner 3, no 3 point line at all, go wild

Give 3 points to any shot in the restricted area (basically, dunks and layups). Hasten the midrange game to the grave.

Every personal foul after 4 you have to spin a wheel with progressively worse odds of fouling you out.

As a fan of a team with Trae, I say they should add not just a 4 point line, but also a 5 point line

All shots should have variable points based directly on how far you are from the hoop and multiplied by how cool your shoes are

he drafted kemba and tobias harris (whom he traded on draft night), acquired jeremy lamb in a deal that was pretty okay overall, and uh thatís kinda it

he traded for nic batum who was good until they extended him but other than that itís mostly mediocre draft picks and trading spare parts to make sure they could field a starting 5

Dokmo likes him.

I dunno none of his moves are terrible, he seems to have twice ended up the fall guy for a team owner's whims.

Yeah, I think if ownership isn't willing to truly bottom out or see through a plan that is way more of a risk than Cho is. Cho also seems to know people and be able to be in the middle of things which is probably the right thing for the Grizz right now.
