  1. In Honor of R-Star: a challenge!

    NBA Forum
    You don't think the team that took the previous #2 seed to 7 games and swapped Ian Mahinmi and George Hill for Al Jefferson, Thaddeus Young, and Jeff Teague is on par with the top non-Cleveland teams in the East? I think we're right up there with Toronto and Boston. Might not finish #2 , but...
  2. Festus Ezeli, Blazers agree to two-year/$16 million deal

    NBA Forum
    They'll definitely miss Crabbe if they don't match his contract. It's a lot of money for a bench shooter who averaged 10 ppg last year and by all accounts wants a larger role. I'm not sure I agree with signing Turner, but I can understand where they're coming from. They wanted Chandler Parsons...
  3. Ian Mahinmi agrees to 4-year/$64 million contract with the Wizards

    NBA Forum
    I'll miss Mahinmi. He was one of the best backup Centers in the NBA and then dramatically stepped up his game this past season when we needed him. Out of nowhere, he suddenly got hands and a pretty decent touch around the basket. He was definitely one of the most improved players in the league...
  4. Western Conference First Round: #3 Oklahoma City Thunder vs. #6 Dallas Mavericks (Thunder win 4-1)

    2015-2016 NBA Playoffs
    Re: Western Conference First Round: #3 Oklahoma City Thunder vs. #6 Dallas Mavericks Yep. Carlisle's too good of a coach to not win one game. Plus, JJ Barea's bound to go off at least once or twice. Still should be a fairly quick and easy series, though.
  5. Eastern Conference First Round: #2 Toronto Raptors vs. #7 Indiana Pacers (Raptors win 4-3)

    2015-2016 NBA Playoffs
    Re: Eastern Conference First Round: #2 Toronto Raptors vs. #7 Indiana Pacers I had to pick the Pacers, but Toronto's looking great this season. Indy has a ton of guard depth so we can always make runs, but I think we'll need multiple 30+ point games from Paul George and a mildly consistent...
  6. Wizards fire coach Randy Wittman after team misses playoffs

    Washington Wizards
    As much as I love everyone who ever went to IU, I always thought Wittman was underachieving with this team. They lost Paul Pierce, had some injuries this season, and had to deal with a much better Eastern Conference, but this team should've been competing with Toronto for that #2 spot in the...
  7. Shocking rumor: Celtics inquired Teague/Horford

    NBA Forum
    That Mavs first round pick, one of those Nets picks (probably not this year), then a few fillers and role players Boston's probably not keeping around (Jerebko, Zeller, James Young, maybe even Marcus Smart). The Celtics have a ridiculous amount of assets they'll need to consolidate at some point.
  8. Report: Hawks reportedly discussing Jeff Teague trade, could "push the reset button"

    Atlanta Hawks
    I don't watch a ton of Hawks basketball, but hasn't Schroeder arguably been outplaying Teague this year? Not sure why they'd blow up the 3rd best team in the East, though, unless they really think Horford is leaving this off season. Nothing wrong with being a division champ and competitive...
  9. Bobby Portis

    Chicago Bulls
    The Bulls are really going to have to make moves to accommodate Portis. I can't believe they found him, Mirotic, and Gibson in the mid-to-late first round. They were already too deep with bigs before they drafted Portis. I was kind of hoping the Pacers would grab him at 10 because I love his...
  10. Pacers legend and Hall of Famer Mel Daniels dies at 71

    Indiana Pacers
    Ugh, horrible news. He's always one of the first names you mention on those All-Time Pacers Teams.
  11. Will Rajon Rondo Boom or Bust with the Kings?

    NBA Forum
    Bust. Part of me really wants the Kings to succeed with all these cancerous parts on their team. I see some potential with Rondo in the pick & roll with Cousins/Gay, but I don't think he's going have the ball enough to be effective. I'm expecting Collison to take the starting job sometime in...
  12. Rookies

    NBA Forum
    Mahinmi can't play more than 25 mpg due to fouls/stamina, and I'm hoping we don't play Jordan Hill too much at the 5. Turner should be able to find at least 15 mpg early on, and hopefully more as the season progresses.
  13. Pacers 2015 Offseason Thread

    Indiana Pacers
    Worst-case scenario, this ends up like the Oladipo-PG experiment in Orlando. It's a failure, but a good growing experience. It'll help Paul diversify his game some more and play the 4 in spot minutes during the game. And yes, I'm ignoring the actual worst-case scenario, which is George...
  14. Pacers 2015 Offseason Thread

    Indiana Pacers
    Anyone else excited to bring in Rakeem Christmas and Glenn Robinson III? I doubt either will see any playing time next season, but it's nice having some marginal prospects on this team (Young, Turner, Solo, Whittington). Hopefully some of them turn into rotation players down the line. I'm not...
  15. Pacers 2015 Offseason Thread

    Indiana Pacers
    I agree. Golden State had some stellar defenders to make their defense work (and Curry wasn't half bad, either). Paul George is pretty good when he doesn't take plays off, and George and Solomon Hill are above average defenders. Otherwise, no one's scared of Monta Ellis, Rodney Stuckey, CJ...
  16. Pacers 2015 Offseason Thread

    Indiana Pacers
    I think we're trying to collect a lot of versatile players so we can trap/switch/double more often on defense. Rudez had an awesome jumper, but Budinger's not a bad shooter and he's better at the rest of the game than Damo. I'm a little woried about his knees, but at least he's expiring. From...
  17. 2015 Wizards Offseason

    Washington Wizards
    Not too bad of an off-season for the Wizards so far. Losing Pierce sucks, but it'll be nice for the Wizards to have some good depth on the wing with Neal/Dudley/Anderson in addition to Webster/Temple. And you never know what Oubre could turn into down the line. Do they have any more money to...
  18. Pacers 2015 Offseason Thread

    Indiana Pacers
    I know we want our bigs to take a lot more jump shots, but I think the end goal is for them to actually make those jump shots. Sullinger only fits in with one of those two points.
  19. Pacers 2015 Offseason Thread

    Indiana Pacers
    Lavoy Allen, Ian Mahinmi, and Myles Turner. Believe it or not, Allen's solid. He's a very good rebounder, decent defensively, and has a pretty good mid-range J. I honestly think he's our starter next year and will log around 20-25 mpg. Mahinmi should be good for 25 mpg as well. I know we were...
