Yes that...

And the fact that he can reapply for reinstatement of a lifetime ban after 2 years...

Typical "wet noodle in the wind" performance management...

I just read that Mike Conley just signed the richest contract in NBA history.


Mike Conley has NEVER even been an NBA all-star.

Wtf is going on???

Mosgov got 15m/yr.

Those 2 played almost the least of anyone for the Cavs in the finals.

Lebron is worth $50m/yr in this market.

$65m+/yr IMO. Of course he won't get it, but I read that he is gunning to sign the first $200M contract in NBA history next year and make $35M/yr.

Well, what numbers do you want to look at, then? Because just about every number has declined over the last 3 seasons.


Even all of the advanced statistics, which would take into account his "lesser role," indicate his play has diminished, but there's no point in trying to talk with someone who's already definitively made their mind up to defend a trade their favorite team made.


Where are "all" of these advanced statistics you speak of? You literally just made the emptiest claim ever. You can't use stats to back up your argument without actually presenting any stats.

Also, I never said he had a "lesser role." I said his role CHANGED. Of course his rebounding will go down when you improve the center position and he has been playing away from the paint more and more because of that and the changing league that sees many stretch fours. I also don't have to defend anything, because I can see that this team needed interior defense and rim protection more than an abundance of two guards. Especially when we just now paid Fournier, who is the better offensive player than Oladipo.

As for the other moves the Magic have made. Not really digging DJ Augustin, but I like the 1 year gamble on Jeff Green.

Meh..it seems like every team has taken the 1 year gamble on Jeff Green...it's never worked out for the good..

But, those of us in glass houses can't throw stones..I'm pretty damn sure Gruden and/or Bruce Allen has orchestrated my Knicks offseason...

Calling it now..our starting 5 will play less than 50 games together...

Orlando loves taking fliers on guys with serious past medical histories. Channing Frye & his enlarged heart and now Jeff Green and his heart troubles.

But the bigger story here is that his 1 year deal pays him $15mil..So glad my baby boy plays b-ball and not football.

I asked you what numbers you want to use. You still have not said what numbers you want to use. What numbers do you want to use that show he is not declining?

Most likely OKC for one year then bolt to Lakers...


Or Boston/Hawks with Howard if they somehow find a way to sign AL

I don't think either of those scenarios are likely.

Honestly I don't know anymore but GS and OKC are the best choices...Either could be a contender. Celtics would only be a contender for 2nd place in the East with Durant.

Lol wow what a joke. Basketball players have no loyalty. I know Durant played with OKC for a long time but now he's left to play on a super team.
