    Lol at getting Anthony Davis. This is why homerism is problematic, it prevents you from looking at almost anything rationally.

    Pels have no reason to trade him, and even if they did we do not have the assets to acquire him. Even if we could trade OG, Powell, JV, Wright, etc they would reject that.

    Bruno has almost zero trade value. Idk why people think he's some prized asset. He's a 4 year d-leaguer who has shown nothing in the NBA so far.
    Pretty sure the point of the post was that it's ridiculous to suggest a trade that doesn't make sense for the other team. The implication being that the suggested Matthews trade is similarly ridiculous (in the implied lack of consideration for the needs of the Mavs), although obviously to a different degree. You know, hyperbole, and all that.

    I don't agree that the Dallas deal is all that far-fetched, but I do agree that they wouldn't do it. JV as a target doesn't make sense for them IMO.

    They're one of the few teams that don't really have any sort of long-term solution at center right now. That's why I think they'd be interested.

    I get it, I just don't see it. Like, they are burying Noel and starting Dirk at C every night. I don't think they are interested in having a long term solution at C right now. Wouldn't you think they'd rather have the cap space anyway, to potentially chase a star (the thing they really lack now) rather than eating it up on a traditional C locked up for several years?

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    lmao this is the funniest thing today

    For the record, I am in favour of a Bruno for Anthony Davis swap, even though I love Bruno and he's tearing up the G right now. We could throw in Hakeem's contract to make the salaries work.

    There are some talented bigs near the top of draft boards, where Mavs will pick.
    If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

    Your grasp of sarcasm needs work. A lot of work.

    Bent, not broken.

    For amusement, I checked out the culture reset thread, to see how many believed it would be done.

    Devin Booker out the next 2-3 weeks, which should pretty well assure a #fakewin in phoenix next week.

    Cuban is such a joke. Had himself a championship team which he broke up and has trotted out the ghost of Nowitzki with whatever G Leaguers he could scrape together for what seems like a decade now. Dirk and Carlisle deserve better.

    I'm pleasantly surprised with the results so far, but I'll reserve judgement until April
