    I would add one more that builds off of #2: the secondary scorers getting more comfortable creating for themselves and others. That means Ibaka, Carroll, Patterson, Joseph, even Powell, those guys...

    As crazy as all of this is, maybe the most important thing here is that Boogie stayed in the West, more specifically away from the Celtics.

    Don't think I saw this mentioned (only skimmed this thread) so just wanted to add that our offence is extremely screen dependent and for all his faults JV does an excellent job there. Don't know if I...

    Just because it's a priority doesn't mean you rush out and get a stopgap solution. Nobody they can realistically trade for is going to bring a championship this season.

    At this point you just go with Patterson. He's earned it, and your 5 million isn't going to get you a guy that moves the needle when there are teams with more money, playing time and opportunity to...

    My dream scenario at this point is coming to some sort of deal with Luol Deng on a discount. Deng has taken less the last couple of seasons with the Heat and might have Ujiri connections (I really...

    That's why I like the pick. The Raps are far more likely to trade their way from good to great than to draft their way. Mobile skilled bigs are always going to have value, especially on rookie deals...

    Poetl seems to be described as a safe bet, the most likely of the remaining picks to be an NBA stalwart. That sounds boring, but I think this pick makes a lot of sense. It's an asset, and a surefire...

    That's exactly why the wins are meaningless. Like I said, I'm playing devil's advocate here, any trade that involves Cousins assumes you're getting back the mythical 'Good Cousins' that gets his shit...

    I think Cousins would love playing with Lowry, DeRozan, Carroll and Patterson. He's been playing with shit rosters and a coaching carousel for so long that he's probably dying for a competent roster...

    Is he though? Do we really know that? It's easy to extrapolate from where he is now but we haven't seen Valaciunas used as a primary option for longer than stretches. To to say he's unguardable based...

    You see iso as the gameplan, I see it as the only option left (usually with under 8 on the clock sadly) because the opponent is going under every screen and daring the Raps to beat them from the...

    I absolutely think it's asking too much with DeRozan and Lowry slumping the way they are.

    Look, the team had a great year, but just because they won a lot of regular season games doesn't make...

    Any talk about this being a system issue is completely off base. This is on the players, not Casey.

    DeRozan and Lowry are missing makeable shots. Period. Most teams would be salivating for the...

    Because our guards are facing George Hill and Paul George instead of Goran Dragic and Old Man Wade.

    Not the whole reason by any means, but sure makes it easier to get your game off.
