    Crowder would hardly be a marginal upgrade when we are hurting for another physical defender that can shoot the three ball.

    Him using the word “weak” there is very telling, he’s a bully and an asshole in the line of Trump. You best believe Morey is unhappy. However, Leslie also forced Morey to make deals I am sure. This was just the first one maybe where he felt the risk was too high.

    As far as Tilman is concerned, he really needs to learn to follow his own advice. No good can come from revealing this, the only reason I can think of is then to serve his ego. “Look at me, I am a risk taker.”

    For us fans, it’s best to shut up and ignore.

    yup. he might not be a "star" but he's a good enough key word rotational player to where he can impact the game in a few different ways. that can and does make a difference

    He's done it zero years though. It's defensible if it is year two or three and you are trying to dodge the repeater tax but that's not the case. They keep dodging paying it at all and a non tax paying team hasn't won a title in a long time. And in the process of doing it they've essentially killed all financial flexibility to make upgrades. I'd bet my life Morey didn't want to dump all that salary knowing the team was so close to a title. He could have gotten them out of the tax later down the line.

    I agree. He'd be huge for us because we only have one rotation player taller than 6'6 which is beyond absurd. But him being a huge upgrade speaks volumes to how badly built this roster is.

    Old news, but no less depressing. Tilman is a disaster.

    I applaud Tilman for doing this, haters and doubters deal with it!
    He would have had 2 titles now were it not for adam silver intervention, you bunch of Debie -downers- negative-nancies-crybabies deserve this 100%

    and yet there's people that still don't know about Tilman but I'm glad the light is being shed brighter and brighter by the day for those that refuse to see it

    Nothing wrong with penny pinchers. Problem is that hes a straight up swindler. Has been his whole life.

    This is an absolutely disastrous quote. Morey is probably interviewing as we speak.

    Old news. But you'd think, given the chance, he'd use the opportunity to spin it in a better way. But... nope. He just sounds stupid. I don't think he has any self awareness at all because he has people like my boy @tinman (no offense) sitting on his pee-pee all hours of the day. Lulz.

    Someone needs to let this guy know nobody likes him and nobody wants to read his book, eat his food, hear him talk or watch his shows. They just want to smoke and jizz in the corners of his casinos. That's it.

    He looks like a stink bug. Look at his face. Tell me I'm wrong. Lulz.

    Again, if he's done it zero years by virtue of telling Daryl here's your constraints, you pick when to do it... then that's on Daryl. IF. I don't know for sure. He might have just said never going over the LT unless I say so. But that wasn't the color we've seem to have gotten here and there in press releases, interviews, etc.

    In either case, LT aside, this is a bigger problem, imo. He's taking GM responsibilities away from Daryl... and not really doing a good job of it anyway...

    Tilman is already putting it out the word that nothing is his fault, and to blame MDA for everything through his fake accounts. I even think he has dispatched a few folks on this web site to help solidify his narrative. Very politician like.

    After he fires MDA and Morey the early signs tell me that this franchise is done. When narratives supercede winning, that's just a terrible sign. I could rattle on about Tilman all day but it's no use. He just another rich con artist. I've already braced my self for much darker days in the future.

    This is old news....the move of Paul for Westbrook was all Tilman. Morey didn't want Westbrook, Harden wanted to add Westbrook to the Harden-Paul duo (essentially subbing out Westbrook for Butler) and only when told by Morey this is possible did he say trade Paul.
