Roland17:Starting to have my doubts about them. Their schedule has been reasonably soft and still they tend to struggle with teams they should be wiping the floor with

You know you can make d same argument for owners right? Times 100.
Where are all the IT fans now? Why is it unprofessional for players to Max their leverage, but a team can hold a city ransom

ipledge10:I stopped counting at 48. Damn! After all his injury woes who would have thought he would ever get back to this point?

Gotta feel good for Rose. Opportunity is a funny thing..in basketball and in life.

Who has more to lose when a franchise crumbles or fails? Players port like sim cards in Nigeria while owners are stuck with incredible debts and bad credit profile that affect other business interests. If the business cannot be salvaged, it is either sold or the franchise moves to another city. Do you know how many jobs will be lost if that happens? Do you know the impact stuff like that has on the host community and state in general? You see it on one level, owners see it on so many other levels. Those lost jobs are not porting with Butler if the Timberwolves franchise fails.
Abi you think say na free? Being a billionaire is not the issue, the issue is sustaining the wealth. These men have worked their socks off, sacrificed and made difficult decisions to be wealthy enough to own a franchise. I am sorry, they have more to lose than Butler and I am not allowing one person ruin my franchise and no be say I dey owe am money sef
The only person that wants Butler in Minnesota is Tibs (I no know whether na Bulls reunion him dey do for Minnesota there with Taj, Rose, and Butler). The owner has made it clear he does not want Butler, neither do the fans. Every locker room will be wary of Butler and that includes the Rockets.
|Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 4:06am On Nov 01, 2018|
Give me one example where players have walked away good and owners crumbled. Gimme one
Soooo if no one wants Butler in Minny minus coach, why are you against him trying to get out of a bad situation
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 4:09am On Nov 01, 2018|
birdman:I'm not pro owner. I think Butler should have gotten a better offer for sure especially based on what they then gave KAT. Don't get me wrong but I just don't believe he is going about it the right way, missing games and causing strife in the team
IT was just unlucky. But if he didn't get hurt he was most likely going to get a huge payday. However for every IT I would show you certain players who have also wound up fleecing their teams, Chandler Parsons and Evan Turner quickly come to mind not forgetting Luol Deng
Wherever Butler joins he still has to run down this deal so why not just see it out?
|Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 4:11am On Nov 01, 2018|
Parsons is the original 419. Cuban is street smart, but he got played
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 4:13am On Nov 01, 2018|
birdman:It was actually Memphis that fell for the scam
However Harrison Barnes is the one Cuban fell for

This Mavericks team is just depressing. Carlisle is aging quicker than normal and it's a pity his best years are being wasted on this kind of mediocrity
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 4:20am On Nov 01, 2018|
Because he signed a contract and needs to adhere to the terms of the contract. There are no waivers on the contract and he is breaching the terms of the contract. Worse still he is feeling entitled to choose where he wants to be traded. Honestly, if I were the TImberwolves, I will trade him to the Kings or Hawks.
That is why I said you are looking at it from one perspective and that is Butler and the player's eye. Owners look at it from numerous perspectives and that is why it is first and foremost a business.
Steve Balmer of the Clippers, did you see how the league forced him to sell his franchise? Do you understand how much that affected his business profile or his reputation, granted he was the architect of his own failure with his racist comments?
The Seattle Sonics left Seattle because they could not come up with the money to fund the building of a new Arena. Do you know how many jobs were lost from that move? Most of the players are settled today because they moved to other teams and their future depended on their performance on the court.

|Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 4:55am On Nov 01, 2018|
Naaaah supersonics and clippers are the two worst examples.
Supersonics left rabid fans when they saw opportunity. People cried man. Begged them. But profit was stronger than fan loyalty.
The racist comment Balmer made, you realize he sold out for a fair price. What do you think happens if a player makes that kind of comment. . You think he gets to choose the terms? Balmer could have rode that ish out. Thankfully he is a decent guy in spite of his loud talk. But he could hung on, a la Trump, and other owners woulda looked d other way
|Re: The NBA Begins by donlittle25: 5:18am On Nov 01, 2018|
Guys, i don't think balmer made the racists comment. Think he was the guy that bought the team from the racists owner
|Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 5:45am On Nov 01, 2018|

Doncic is the actual Truth

very close win for Lebum and the Lakers... But this Lakers team won't make the Playoffs, e sure for me...
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 6:04am On Nov 01, 2018|
That was close. Can't believe the Lakers nearly blew that game
|Re: The NBA Begins by KNIGHTBlaed(m): 6:04am On Nov 01, 2018|
His game is too smooth for a rookie, ROY already... He should have shot the last 3

Curry trying to get another MVP? 37 points of 20 fg with 9 assists

A40:Timberwolves gamble paid off... I watched his interview, I almost cried. I’m he is getting back to who he used to be.

ipledge10:Teague has been a massive disappointment. I knew trading Rubio just to get Teague was probably not a good look but the way Rose has played he probably should be the starter injury permitting
|Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 7:19am On Nov 01, 2018|
You must have known the dude personally. But thanks for bringing him up.
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 7:21am On Nov 01, 2018|
KNIGHTBlaed:Actually I was going to say the same thing. He also took too long to get going. Credit to Ingram for playing stellar D on him
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 7:24am On Nov 01, 2018|
birdman:Lool we were like Tom and Jerry on this thread and the old NFL thread. His older brother was my secondary school mate and friend and for the longest time I been no even know say dem relate till I actually clocked that the handle was his surname and then I asked and he confirmed it.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 1:11pm On Nov 01, 2018|
You are right, Donald Sterling was the previous owner. Thanks man.
|Re: The NBA Begins by BykeLaByke: 3:00pm On Nov 01, 2018|
Lmaooooooo....Lonzo always torches Dennis poo Junior whenever they face each other.
Mouth breathers were telling me the Lakers should have drafted poo Junior last year instead of Lonzo.
Individuals with dog breath were telling me "Lonzo has no chance starting over Rondo" at the start of the season.
