    I'm usually always the guy wanting big moves to happen out of the excitement of change.

    I'd legitimately be content with just keeping Clint. What I mostly don't understand is that our big thing with moving Clint should be to get a big who can hit 3's. RoCo is a good target, but the talks of Looney, Thompson are really confusing, we should be looking for a real shooter at 5.

    Shoots better than Draymond Green. And Magic played 2 bigs with him so paint was congested. Played mostly iso, perimeter or post. AG is elite screener & driver but Magic rarely used him that way.

    In Houston, he would be playing in space and pace (he is demon in transition). Systems maximize or minimize players, AG would be a stud with Rockets.

    Amazing that everyone loves John Collins but AG is similar player except more skilled (5 tooled) and much better defender.

    Keep seeing Theim's name thrown around. Admittedly I know a little but not much about him. Is he a player that helps? Is he a starting calibre C?

    In response to Morey is a chess master....no he isn’t as we have never won or been in a Finals. He has failed in obtaining the necessary components to go with our superstar.

    Lol, poor Morey, probably drowning his sorrows in a bucket of nachos while the texts from Tilman just keep rolling in . . .

    The 2017-2018 team won 65 games and was poised to go to the finals (and probably win it all) if not for several things that didn't go our way (calls, missed shots, injuries, etc).

    Refs sucked, I acknowledge that but 0-27 three pointers, due to Morey’s stupid system I also acknowledge. Also, it was not a stretch to suggest trading a ton of talent and a pick for CP3 who was notorious for not playing full playoff series was a potential mistake come playoff time. Trading picks constantly to get rid of mistakes and also acquire Shumpert were mistakes. Never providing the team with adaquate height another mistake. The guy sucks as a GM, based on the only record that counts and that is Finals appearances (0) and we are not even close with 2 MVPs due to the crap he has surrounded them with. And now....he wants to trade our young athletic center who had a streak of 20 rebound games this year away for 37 year old Iguodala or 12 pt 1 assist Covington???

    As far as I know, he is doing a fine job as the Celtic's starting center. He can rebound, catch lobs, mobile defensively, and tough. He is not as elite as Capela in these areas but he can fill the role. His major problem is he is undersized (6'8'') and the Celtics are likely concerned about his ability to duke it out against Embiid, Giannis, Sabonis, etc. come playoff time.

    you do realize he wouldn’t do any of those things if it wasn’t for our cheap owner right??
    The guy who’s notorious for collecting assets all of a sudden one day just decided he was gonna stop doing that once a new owner took over? Cmon how are you blaming Morey for anything that has happened in the Tillman era. Pretty sure he tweeted about Hong Kong hoping to get fired.

    We are going to defend Anthony Davis with a 1st rounder, a TPE and "yet to be named" center. May Tristan Thompson.

    We have not talked enough about how millionaires can disregard previous experience without any consequence. Our ownership group is quickly going Isaiah Thomas Starbury/Eddy Curry kind of irrationale.
