    Serious question: are people *actually* still confusing me with @DrexlerFan ? For the umpteenth time, I'm not him. It's starting to get really irritating getting notifications about people bashing me, when I'm not actually who they're talking about.

    I have a feeling NO is going to start off bad again and that team is going to have to trade Cousins.

    Lol. Sacramento had like 3 coaches in 2 seasons and the front office there has had NO idea on how to build a decent team. They had Isiah Thomas, whom I believe Cousins was cool with, then traded his azz for nothing. Cancer? Or is he's a great player who played for a dysfunctional franchise. The ppl of Sacramento LOVED Cousins and did not want him gone. You guys have to be more considerate of the fact these so called "cancers" most the time are in poorly ran organizations who aren't even trying to win. If you were a talented, high skilled NBA player, and in a organization like Sacramento, New Orleans or the Knicks, you'd be disgruntled and probably unmotivated to play too. If Capela was drafted by Sacramento chances are NOBODY would know his name. You'd be CRAZY if you passed up on a trade for Demarcus Cousin for Clint Capela. You'd be ran outta town as GM of the Rockets for that

    It was more of the disgruntled part than the star but everyone keeps saying cousins like he isn’t happy where he is...

    Cousins feels right at home, proud life time member of the bottom half of the standings

    Marc Gasol. Grizzlies have to rebuild. He could probably be had for Capela and Anderson plus a pick.

    Marc Gasol. That's the 3rd star that no one is talking about that'll be available soon. Let the season start, let them struggle, let them realize they need to rebuild and they'll put him and conley on the block.

    I always count the grizz out but they just somehow always sneak in. What could we honestly offer without destroying depth?

    Clint, Ryno, 1st for Gasol and Green.

    Green fits this system too

    Given market rate, Clint and a 1st is excellent.

    Eric Gordon, first man ever to be three-point champion and sixth man of the year in same season, will be the third star. He averaged 16 a game last season. I think he'll get over 20 a night this season.

    Cousins is someone who I don't want on this team. He is a virus. He would probably do more harm than good for this team.

    Any chance Paul George comes over? I do think an elite wing is needed to match up against the likes of Lebron, Durant, Kawhi. And in the future Giannis.
