    Capela even looks really good. I’m still shocked they could not get more for him. I’m actually wavering in Collins being worth a max. I think I’d prefer your guy at $18M as a better means of asset management.

    Yep, he looks mediocre tonight.

    And only 13-15 mins of play, what's up with that?

    Too bad.

    But looking at Hawks talent, it is unconscionable that that have yet to score at least 30 in any quarter this game.

    Hawks should beg MDA to coach this team.

    Why the hell didn't we want this guy again?

    Him and Wood would have been incredible together.

    Tillman probably didn't want to pay him as a free agent.....sigh.

    I said this from the start.

    CF defending that shetty Harden trade makes me sick to my stomach.

    Damn it! I wanted to be an insider so bad. I predicted 30, 20, and 5. He only ended up with 26, 18, and 5. Had my Twitter page all ready to go and everything.

    Nice young talent. Didn't want to pay him. Is everybody agreeing now with Harden about the talent on this team. Cheap cheap owner.

    Because he’s not going to be worth the mega deal he’s gonna get, as far as on the court impact goes. I get the crowd saying we shoulda held on to try and get a bigger return, but someone will overpay him this summer.

    Exactly. Giving a huge contract to a rim running big would be crazy when we already have Wood. The Rockets made the right decision.

    I am more shocked that there are clutchfans that actually defend Tilman than any other bs craziness on this site...

    Wow

    It was a incredibly stupid decision. You’d be able to get better than a sorry bucks late pick for a talented big like Allen the way he’s been playing

    At 22 years old... if Jarret Allen’s name was changed to Ben Simmons... people would want to trade James fkn Harden for him.

    So everyone would have been cool with giving Allen a 90M contract? That’s what he was rumored to be looking for. I can understand keeping him only to try and trade for more at the deadline but don’t see how he fits long term next to Wood.
