He sounds like most people who live in Dallas....
Give me Bogut! For free
A team with Noel's and Barnes does not scare me. Even if they were in the East. They would barely get to 8th.
Barnes isn't an all star caliber player. He doesn't go to the line, he doesn't drive the lane well, he doesn't shoot 3's well, he doesn't pass the ball well. He scores 20 points a game on a bad Mavericks team because he takes 17 shots a game.
What is cubes thinking? All of this for a guy who won't stay?
if barnes isn't an all star caliber type player then I guess guys like paul george aren't actual all stars. So what if he takes 17 shots a game. he's efficient. it would be an issue if he took that many shots and was in the 30% area but he's far from that.
The dirty truth no one is talking about is that it is very possible (if not likely) that Joel Embid breaks down and isn't ever dependable. He already is playing restricted minutes and missing multiple games.
Everyone knew Colangelo would tear apart everything Hinkie did and he is well on his way to doing just that.
Everybody's underselling, you cannot tell me they didn't have a better offer on the table, no way!! Horrible deal for both sides, but way worse for the 76ers.
He isn't efficient at all. 20 points on 17 shots is nothing to write home over. He also isn't near the defender that George is.
The Mavericks could click and finish 8th. They are very well coached and while I think there are talent limitations, they are a group of professionals.
Pelicans get Cousins, and Dallas (likely) gets to keep their pick to add to Noel and Barnes.
Some of us aren't petty to the point of not wanting a player because he said something that hurt our feelings.
oh that's interesting because there's plenty of guys who are regarded as the better players in this league well within that range of 20pts on 17shots. but nah barnes is the exception
Great trade for the Mavs. Noel should flourish under Carlilse.
What about the other part, that he's old, injury prone & a crybaby?
Anderson for Noel? Great heist by Dallas.
How in the world is Dallas' pick going to be lower than 18 this year? For that to happen, they have to be a top 11 team.
They are not going to catch up with the top 7 teams in the West. They are 9.5 games behind the 7th team Thunder who just got better today. So they will have to beat the 4th team in the East which is the Raptors, 10.5 games ahead of them and just got better today too.
it's 2 second rounders.
