    How do you know if he's working hard or not? Cause of a tweet that takes like two seconds to make? Cmon man, I get that these guys get paid alot of money and being critcized by journalists and people online come with it. All I'm saying is that people are human and occasionally things like this will happen. No one is above getting irritated for constantly being criticized.

    I didn't say he wasn't working hard.

    I said "He should spend less time worrying about what local sports reporters think and more time earning that paycheck."

    Okay, fine I'll rephrase, how do you know based off one tweet that he constantly worries about what the media says, sure he gets irritated( like most of us would) but why would you think thats affecting his play? And how do you know he isnt trying to earn that paycheck still? Point is, we really dont know Dieng like that. What we do know is that he constantly gets crapped on for that contract. But like I said before, it comes with the job and he shouldnt have made that tweet. But he is human and I dont really wanna criticize him for lashing out when he has to face constant criticism.

    Durant wasnt the one that was killing us last year. KD probably have 1 good game against us. Klay was the one that was killing us. It's super easy to stop durant, stay close to him and make him shoot and if he miss, he miss. Only thing he does anyways. To me durant is super overated. This is why he cant win anything without GSWs.

    I don't think that's his real list.

    If he wants to win - Houston it is.

    Jimmy's quick reaction about the Rox at 2:10 is worth noting...

    I don't think he cares about winning, he just wants to be the highest paid player and to be seen as "the guy".

    You're right but he also wants to be on a team that can give him a max contract. It boils down to big money or win a chip.

    I still say, give Butler a big balloon payment year, and maybe avoid the repeater tax.

    Let's get Tomball Jimmy.

    Jimmy finds out that they're about to pull the trigger on a deal to Miami, then Thibs demands more picks:

    I've asked this question earlier. Why don't they trade Wiggins and/or KAT and build around Butler? Wiggins is beyond redemption, IMO. KAT is a good kid that needs to grow up. He still has the potential of being a franchise player. Some teams will bite if he is offered.
