    He was still our best shooter, technically speaking!

    Pretty mediocre drafting by Stone so far

    Yeah that's what I was saying about Denver last year and the Warriors (Steph/Klay) the year before.

    Amazing how deep teams help the stars take
    a lesser role and help preserve them for the playoffs.

    Jamal Murray, MPj, Aaron Gordon, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond, others know what I'm talking about.

    Very strange transaction all around.

    I guess it's expected now that drafted players have to be ready to play in year 2? Kinda goes against the bias against drafting college juniors and seniors and having a G-league available. But OK.

    Riley may jump on that, since he already has that 3peat slogan on lockdown and got a decent bag$ twice from 90's Bulls and from that Shaq led Lakers trifecta

    If Ty was smart he would do it himself since he basically is his own company based on his profession and B.C.

    To me TyTy would not be as far down on the bench on the Rockets as most are claiming because KPJ is going to struggle with some of the tough love and benching he's already going to have now that FVV took the starting job , Green is the obvious start at SG and he's not sliding to 3 with Brooks and that $80 million contract. He's a bench player now. When he finally snaps, they are going to drop the remainder of that contract like a sack of potatoes and TyTy will be there to pick up those minutes.

    First Woman released from the NBA. Tmz has not caught on this news but be sure the world will be on the TyTy train soon.

    ROCKETS working up a 4 year $60 Million contract for TyTy and a 3 year $45 Million for Garuba as we speak. Got to out bid the rest of the league and fast.

    It boggles the mind that a mid-tier team like the Thunder with an acknowledged top GM don't see the value of future superstars TyTy and Usman.

    FIRE EVERYBODY!

    Stop pining to bring the garbage back in and pay attention to the Thunder roster.

    They still have 18 contracted guys (plus 3 two ways) which they need to trim to 15 by the end of pre-season. It could be interesting to see who shakes loose there

    Maybe they decided to cut him after watching him play for Spain.
