Big news from the G League. President Malcolm Turner tells ESPN they are implementing a “professional path” for would-be one and done players. They're offering $125k contracts, as well as access to NBA infrastructure and development tools. ESPN News Story: https://t.co/pjsJgt4GSE

I'd take the $80-90k from Kansas, Arizona, or whatever other college that is tax free over the $125k to play in the G-League with no visibility...

Boston over GS in the Finals

Lakers get #6 spot 48ish wins

Obviously LeBron finals appearances is over ( very impressive)

Houston #3 in the conference

Dallas #8 barely getting in 

San Antonio misses the playoffs.

Cavs become a joke again

 

Philly #1 contender in the East but not good enough for Boston.

"I worked my whole life to get out of there, and I was back. Just … trapped. Carrying my gun with me everywhere. Couldn’t sleep. Couldn’t escape my own head. Couldn’t find any peace."

Darius Miles' story on The @PlayersTribune is a must read: https://t.co/6hLY7YkGvi https://t.co/VTMUZkRYFs

 

 

 

 

Wow!!

C's win a close one versus OKC tonight, going off behind the arc 2nd half. 

 

 

Anyone hear about Morey trying to get Jimmy Butler again and what he's willing to give up to get him??

My thoughts on the Mavs after 6 games:  

1.  They def hit a homerun in the draft. 
2.  They made massive improvements in the off-season, yet...
3.   They still may not even be a legit #8 team in the west this year.

Defense seems to be a thing of the past and if they Mavs continue to have games where they jack up 30 3s and only hit 20% of them, we are going to have a long season.

Doncic may be a rookie all-star selection...

It sounds like a Tillman Fertitta move, not a Morey move...Waaay too much to give up...

Story on ESPN: Rick Pitino hires agent, wants chance to become NBA coaching candidate. “I want to develop teams and develop players and build a winner. I want to fit into an organization. At this stage, that’s all I’m interested in.” https://t.co/0Y21NK3WxV

Current options for Butler trade:

4 1st Round Picks + Brandon Knight

2-3 1st Round Picks + Eric Gordon

Not a fan of either, but would rather get rid of Knight over Gordon. Gordon is too important to what this team is trying to do...

Defense is pretty much non-existent in the NBA. Just look at the scores. Heck, the Warriors dropped 90+ in the first half.

The Mavs have really improved by adding Doncic and Jordan. Sadly, the super teams are just too much for them. It's hard for me to fully invest in the Mavs because I know they won't go anywhere in the playoffs, even if they make it.

Sources: Markelle Fultz's right wrist will be examined Monday in addition to his shoulder, and would prefer a move to a new team, sources tell @JaredWeissNBA, @sam_amick, @ShamsCharania. More: https://t.co/ot3DqzmUzz

Mavs are definitely fun to watch and when they are playing at home, every team has to watch out at this point. Luka makes such a difference on the team. They keep saying Dirk will be back in the next week. I'm worried that he will not help things...where the heck is he gonna fit in the mix for 20 or so minutes a game? He won't hustle and fly up the floor with that 2nd team. Who are you taking off the starters - Luka, Barnes? They'd have to be out of their mind. If I took those 2nd string guys on an individual basis, then yes Dirk is head and shoulders better but for what those guys bring to the group then unless he replaces Finney-Smith in both places (when he starts, which infuriates me...or on 2nd string...I just don't like the way Finney-Smith plays --> I don't think he brings much to the table).
