Forums - Sports Discussion - NBA offseason is wild

Why isn't anyone complaining about the celtics not being loyal? Bradley literally went through a lot with them and he just got traded to a crappy team

'Team loyalty' my ass. Why should players care about teams if they wouldn't flinch about trading them?

Annnd the Warriors got Nick Young and Omri Casspi for their BENCH. Their bench now consists of:

Iguodala
David West
Casspi
Young
McGee


I thought this team would simply keep their core, and they somehow managed to create an even better bench. This team can probably win 70 games with half-assed effort

Highly doubt it the rest of the West got a whole lot better also and its not like they have a team of Stockton's and Malone's half the team is injury prone.

The Timberwolves are just making all kinds of splashes this offseason.



I'm really excited. Hoping I see the Wolves get back to the playoffs...it's been too long since we were in.

Lonzo Ball shot 2/15 in his first Summer League game including an epic fail of 1/11 from 3 point range. Despite missing so many 3-point shots he continued to jack up more and more bricks. On his way to become the biggest flop of the NBA draft.

Summer league is summer league.

 

I think the flop/goat predictions are still too early. We need to wait and see if his shooting improves. Currently, he seemed more comfortable moving the offense around. Perhaps he'll be valued more if he stayed that way?

 

 

 

ot- Philly's 1st pick has been injured. Is it a 76'er tradition to injure yourself? With their doctors, he'll probably be out until 2019 and play 20 games the first year

LeBron shot 37% and just 16 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists during his time in the Summer League and he never recorded one triple-double.
Durant shot 33% on 24 points and just 2 rebounds.
Steph also shot 33% on 17, 5, and 4.
And look how those three guys turned out.

How about we wait until the actual regular season before deciding if Lonzo is star or bust. 



Jesus, man. 
The City of Not So Brotherly Love apparently just can't catch a break.

Not a mayor injury he will just miss the rest of summer league which is almost over anyway.  He should be back to 100 percent or close to it by the time regular season training camp starts in late Septemper.  Summer league is much more important for late first round picks, secound round picks and free agents because they are fighting for roster spots and minutes during the regular season.
