motown67 said:2nd year in a row Lakers strike out in signing a major free agent. Aldridge allegedly told them no. They were then looking at Greg Monroe but he just signed with the Bucks.
I’m also giving coach Terry Stotts a ton of credit for maneuvering his defensive scheme so deftly to cover up Lillard’s glaring weaknesses.
motown67 said:The landscape of the NBA just changed. DeAndre Jordan leaves the Clippers for Dallas. Lopez and Matthews left the Blazers and Aldridge is probably going as well meaning Portland is in complete re-build phase.
motown67 said:So how many people think Deandre Jordan leaving the Clips was a sign of that team being totally dysfunctional.
motown67 said:Forgot to say. Doesn't the signing of Aldridge prove that the Spurs are one of the greatest franchises in the NBA?
Deandre Jordan left the Clippers probably making them a first round and out playoff team, maybe second round depending upon their opponent but their title hopes just walked out the door. One article claimed that Jordan felt disrespected by Paul and the ownership. Jordan felt like Paul did not include him in the team while the ownership didn't promote him as much as Griffin and Paul. Dysfunction at its best shown by the fact that Jordan was willing to go to a worse team and for less money.
motown67 said:Big Stacks you can throw the Knicks into that mess of teams as well.
motown67 said:Given the fact that Jordan only has two moves fast break lob and pick and roll lob I'm not sure how much he's going to add offensively. Plus like Rock said who is going to be throwing him these passes?

i guess it doesn't matter to them w/ kobe's deal finally done after next season, they'll be able to make some big money offers to FA's, I suppose.
motown67 said:Is Hibbert really going to make a difference for the Lakers?
motown67 said:Is Hibbert really going to make a difference for the Lakers? That team is so lacking in talent and they can't even depend upon Kobe playing a full season.
