Hasn't it been reported that McGregor is interested in doing it? I cannot see them not doing this if he is.

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

I think they have to go for broke now trade for Leonard and sign Boogie. Mostly because I want to see Boogie react to being told to stand in a corner like Love and Bosh were.

Re: Nationals acquire Kelvin Herrera

A day later, I'm still mystified by this deal. Even if you acknowledge Herrera as being a touch over-rated ... he was still likely one of the better available pen arms out there. I've got to think the target was Morel here - too much is known about Perkins and Gutierrez. Nationals shore up their bu...

I'm curious if that Endderr guy would be devastated with the Brewers winning 93 games, the division, and then making the Final Four? What a disaster, why haven't we fired Theo?

Re: 2017-2018 NBA Season

Win shares can be based so much on usage and rates. Jordan's peak was played within an offense that encouraged him to share the ball and Pippen did a majority of the ball control. LeBron is in an offense that is stand and watch LeBron play. I think it's why so many of his teammates that were stars ...

Re: 2017-2018 NBA Season

I have no problem saying that, adjusting for era, jordan was the greatest player of my lifetime. LeBron is better but plays in an era where the competition is FAR superior. This very well could be true, but a washed up Jordan did go for 20/6/4 against the guys that were LeBron's contemporaries. The...

Re: 2017-2018 NBA Season

Someone explain why this dude is all hung up on PER. That, WS or BPM (and VORP way behind, I guess) all seem like ways to try and cumulatively judge one player's overall value vs. another, and LeBron tops Jordan in all of those except for PER, where Jordan JUST edges him out. Win shares can be base...

Re: 2017-2018 NBA Season

JR really bailed out George Hill from getting blamed for this. Hill looked terrified to take those free throws. I think Lebron will still single-handedly pull out a game, but he needed this to have a chance to make it a series. I'm not sure what else he can do. Maybe Draymond Green will get hit by ...

Love was really, really good pre LeBron. I think LeBron kills post players on his team, ask Bosh. Having watched both, I don't think Pippen is in the same world as Wade.

Re: 2017-2018 NBA Season

I am confused why we are pretending that Scottie Pippen is in the same league as Wade though, seems like one hell of a stretch. Wade was much more talented and PER has Love as a much better player as well.
