    Nice job on this, Max! Shouldn't have put me on the nominees, LOL. Been too busy lately.

    Damn, is that colorway available these days?

    We overpaid when we traded for and resigned him? Dude, who knows what we could have accomplished if Bosh stayed healthy that season. Goran was on the plane to Miami when the news about Bosh broke out. Who knew we were gonna be this terrible at that time? If Bosh had not gotten hurt, who could we possibly have gotten from the two first round picks we traded? And don't tell me you regret losing Norris Cole, Shawne Williams, Danny Granger, and Justin Hamilton for Dragic? Those were/are bums. That was basically nothing when we acquired Dragic as he was coming off an MIP, All-NBA season.

    If Riley's putting Dragic in a trade package, it has got to be a multiple-team trade, right? It's not some straight up Kyrie for Goran and a couple more, because Goran doesn't fit Lebron James style of offense. Lebron slows things down, and we know Dragic's all about uptempo.

    I didn't know who this kid was, so I looked his scouting report up. Derrick Walton Jr. Height: 6-0 Weight: 188College: Michigan Classification: SeniorBirthdate: 4/3/1995 2017 Top 100 Rank: 59 Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted 2017 NBA Mock Draft: Round 2, Pick 49 Actual 2017 NBA Draft: Undrafted Pros: Very good shooter, especially from deep Excels at scoring on the move Adequate scorer off the dribble Very good free throw shooter Very good playmaker Good rebounder Adequate defensive player Better than advertised athlete Cons: May struggle to finish plays in traffic Can be too passive on offense Struggles to defend more athletic players Undersized to play the point Not overly explosive Summary: Derrick Walton is a skilled point guard that can really shoot the basketball. He is a very good shooter that can make many threes from beyond the arc, and he is a caretaker that can run the team effectively at the point. On the other hand, he may be undersized to play the point, and his lack of size or elite athletic tools may hurt his ability to defend or finish plays in the paint in games. But he is a smart, skilled player that operates as a solid game manager, as he tends to make quality decisions with the ball in his hands. Right now, he may project to be a borderline second round pick. While his limitations could make it difficult for him to secure a spot to be drafted in the upcoming draft, his smarts and offensive skills could allow him to succeed as a Chucky Atkins type of player in the NBA.

    You know what, I've been skeptical of D-Rose all because of his health. But I hope he stays healthy and somehow plays 80-90% of how he used to play.

    Some people here are way too high on Kyrie, but it turns out that the reason why Kyrie was pissed and eventually wanted to be traded is because the Cavs included him in the trade package for Butler and PG. That's a team that has Lebron and an easy path to the Finals each and they are still willing to trade him.

    If he indeed leaked the information with regard to Kyrie asking for a trade, then it tells me that he wants to speed up the process of that happening. By putting it out there in the public, the media, teams, and NBA fans talk about it. So instead of the Cavs calling the teams one by one, now they have the teams coming to them and giving them offers for Kyrie. The team with the best offer gets Kyrie.

    So you picked a bad play with Dragic and a good play with D-Wade just to make it seem that Dragic isn't capable of making that pass. You didn't even consider the plays being run at those moments? Dragic clip: 2nd OT, 13 seconds in the shot clock, awful movement by all of the Heat players on the court, Whiteside disengaged. What? At that point in time, you could just drop the ball to Whiteside and let him create his own shot? He wasn't in position to score. And if you watch the D-Wade clip, then see how many times Whiteside was stripped of the ball when getting the ball at the post. See what happens when Whiteside moves and puts himself in position to score and not just standing there, surrounded by multiple defenders, waiting to get the ball like he's Kevin Durant: This doesn't prove that Dragic is better than Kyrie. Just don't pick one bad play and compare it to a bunch of good plays when the scenarios are different.

    I know the Knicks are a terrible org, but this doesn't make sense for the Knicks at all. They're losing a superstar and get nobodies?

    In terms of scoring, Kyrie is miles ahead of Goran. You say he's averaged 25 points being the second option. Then make him the first option, and you're obviously gonna get more points because he would jack up shots and the rest of the team would just rot while watching him do his thing and wait for an unpredictable pass from him. Goran has already improved as one of the leaders of the Heat, so he's got that over Kyrie. Kyrie's a phenomenal talent, no question about that. But this dude's known for tending to do a one-man show. That said, I'm not really against having him on the team, but just in case we land him, he'd better be okay with the team having his game in check. He's capable of passing the ball, and he just has to be willing to do it.

    That's right. Either trade him or trade Lebron to where he would prefer to be traded or they are mentally shot as a team. A huge chunk of the blame should be on Lebron. And that's why I don't want that dude back here. He always brings drama with him and just doesn't do what he's supposed to do. He's allowed his camp to threaten the Cavs that he would leave them, and now it's starting to backfire on him. Is that the kind of leader he is? That's what happens when you're too power hungry and always power trippin'.

    This situation serves as an opportunity for Kyrie and Lebron. If I were Lebron, I'd use this situation to ask for a trade to somewhere where he'd have a better chance of winning. He just says to the Cavs, trade me now or make this Kyrie's team, or lose him now and lose me at the end of the season, and you'll be left with nothing.

    On second thought, Kyrie said he wanted to play with the Spurs, and that tells me he's willing to be coached by a great NBA coach and in the process, he'd be willing to give up the ball. If he's willing to give up the ball and says, you know what, I know what you do and I'm willing to be part of that, then I guess I'm gonna be okay with him. Spo would have to make it work, and it's A LOT OF WORK because I don't think we're constructed to be a team that surrounds a guy with Kyrie's skills. I think we should have a lot of shooters around him.

    That's why I wrote WAS in all caps, Maj. He wants to be the guy now. He no longer wants to defer. Windhorst said when Kyrie was offered his contract in 2014, Lebron wasn't back there yet, and he was promised that he was gonna be the face of the franchise and the Cavs would build a team around him and make him like Steve Nash. (I think they were delusional to have thought of that. He doesn't pass, how could he be Steve Nash?)
