    I almost care where Melo ends up. He could turn a couple of teams into instant powerhouses. The Warriors better hope he decides to retire.

    Looks like the Nets will be trading for Melo and then waiving him.

    This magic-lebron story 100% fabricated bullshit. Everybody tampers. How are 20 guys signed within an hr of free agency opening up? I wish somebody in the media actually had the balls to call this out. Does anybody actually believe lebron and magic didn’t talk prior to midnight?

    Pretty interesting.


    James has never played for a great head coach.....but those playerd he's often compared to have played for a great coach.

    Lebron came in at a time where Riley was winding his career down and propping up Spo. The only other "great" coaches considered were Phil and Popovich.

    Spo later on down the road may be considered a good coach when his career's wrapped up given his overall resume.

    Also, the coaches like Pop and Phil amongst others didn't have super star players that kept jumping from team-to-team. Lebron also had the opportunity to go play for the Spurs which would be a HOF coach he always coveted, but went to LA instead.

    @Bolts

    Coming out of high school, people used to say Harry Giles had a lil bit of Kevin Durant in him.

    Didn't think they meant the part that keeps getting techs and ejected......lol

    What do they get for eating that deal?

    Between he and Howard, they just ate 50 million dollars this Summer.

    Looks like Lin as the center piece and the Nets covet draft picks.

    Not done but it's serious.

    He's now gotten 3 or 4 in summer league lol, I hope this isn't him trying to be the new Demarcus. If he has some KD in him offensively then the emotion and fire he shows is fine with me.

    Danny Ainge speaks from Summer League

    "There are guys that we’re looking at. We’re all here watching all the teams play in the Summer League, watching different guys work out. But our priority remains the same. Our priority is still Marcus (Smart) in free agency, and that’s where we are."

    I hope the Cavs win the summer league. Then Dan Gilbert can put another banner in the rafters.

    I'm very curious as to what picks the Nets are taking on. How much of Carmelo's contract will they need to eat? This gets so confusing.

    Plenty of media members have called this out. Michelle Beadle was very passionate about this on The Jump.

    James Ennis to Houston is a quality signing after losing 2 important defenders at SF.

    Solid 3 and D guy

    Bill Simmons had Daryl Morey on his podcast and asked him about whether teams violate the tampering rules all the time. Morey responded "Teams follow the letter of the law" which got a big laugh.

    It's a complete joke. European soccer has the exact same problem.

    I guess the caption doesn’t show up. That artist painted over his own mural because he was tired of it getting vandalized.

    According to some if the Warriors win again as expected it's a shitty and boring season.
