    Very unapologetically true. We are a tad less of the team that we were when we took GSW (without Iguodala) to 7 games. We just took a step or two back, and we'll need to take 4 or 5 more steps forward to even be just barely on par with a full-strength GSW.

    I think Morey is looking for an "established" veteran 3&D wing who's younger, quicker, and cheaper to replace Ariza. Ennis would be fine with me. I think he's also looking to roll the dice with a young point, another wing, and hopefully someone, preferably a 4/5, who can take some minutes from Capela (who I expect to be back). Nene disappointed me last season. I like the guy, but he appears to be running on fumes. We can't depend on him, in my opinion. Great locker room presence who seems to be able to play spot minutes here and there, depending on matchups, but we need more.

    Cool, you should reconsider going back to lurking.

    Why are your feelings so hurt over an opinion on the internet? Because I think the west will be more competitive as a whole or because you tried the whole “I’ve been here longer than you” ish like it was CF vs the Lin fans all over again.

    I'm pretty much the same. On the one hand, Trust in Morey. On the other, we lost a starter and cannot adequately replace him (also, we're an old team and are just a year older now).

    Dude I really don't care.

    You claim the West is better. YOUR two examples of them becoming better are the Suns and Mavs. At that, you claim they will not be playoff teams and only be marginally better as to not being as cupcakes as they were last year and the years previous.

    Whoopty fu**in do. If that's what you consider getting "better" we have no reason to even continue this "debate".

    If my only 2 claims were Phx and Dallas getting better then you have the reading comprehension of a rock. Here’s an idea. Take a Midol, use a Manpon and then come back to the forum.

    If that doesn’t work for you then reread what I said and then google what collectively means in relation to the rest of my context. #DoBetter

    holysh#t. i just looked at his contract. $82 mil over the next 3 yrs. That's insane. He'd be a good Trevor replacement though.

    I guess the rockets think 40 yr old Nene is a better backup C than Noel on at the minimum
