    It's incredibly funny to me. It was the same situation with Faried. At the end of the day, if these players still belonged in the NBA, they would still be in the NBA.

    It was only an example of Morey and how he treated players in a spreadsheet manner, and Stone seems to be more personal....

    It is not about Dmo.

    There was a women on a podcast leading up to the draft who said ", John wall was putting players on danger so they had to sit him" when that was an obvious lie, rockets simply wanted to go with the young guys and wall was not in the future. Media looking for any reason to stir up ****.

    dare I say I grew a little tired of DM the GM. Mostly as he sold his soul to #13.

    Did not intend for it to derail, it was just a great example of Morey vs Stone.

    Also, guarantee Stone won't say **** about Taiwan....lol

    I like what Stone is doing. . ..
    While we can talk player evaluations and stuff
    I think what Stone's greatest power is . . . . . . Dealing with Tilman

    I don't know if it is real but seems like Tilman has sat down and STFU more.
    If he thought CP3 had the WORSE CONTRACT IN BASKETBALL and told everyone
    Explain to me how allowing Wall to sit all last year and then buy him out this year was better?
    Talk about Wall being a professional all you want. . . STONE GOT TILMAN TO BUY IN AND SHUT HIS F***ING HOLE!!!

    IMO - Stone has gotten Tilman to understand how much he really does not know about running a franchise
    I give Tilman credit for finally listening

    Stone is Managing Up better than Morey IMO

    Stone sold Tilman on Building through the draft
    Meanwhile Morey could not Convince Le$ to tank . .like AT ALL
    Stone is working with Top 5 picks. . . Morey was working with another 6'9 combo forward at 14 at best

    Morey's "predecessor" would be Carol Dawson.

    We can talk about that in another thread, but that was some dirty stuff they pulled and it made us weaker...wasn't happy.

    Hope Stone does not overpay for Tate.

    If re-signed, he won't be part of any trade packages anytime soon.

    This kind of premature euphoria is also representative of why everyone here can't take enough Xanax when the team goes on a 3 game losing streak.

    Stone: "Kenyon, can I see you in my office!?!"

    Stone: "How do you feel about Brooklyn?"

    I mean, James Harden just declined a massive payout to work out a smaller contract to improve the Sixer's cap flexibility. I don't recall another GM convincing a player with a super max to decline a player option to benefit the team's cap situation.
