    Jimmy is a funny guy.

    He's pretty witty/smart as well for a basketball player.

      This was a great watch. Funny and even a little emotional.

      • Brooklyn's an interesting landing spot. If they can get Butler now and sell him on the team, it really increases their chances of getting Kyrie in the summer as well. They can pretty easily clear room for two max deals as well, and have quite a few expirings to use as salary ballasts as well as young players/picks to include.

          If a bad team wants to take that chance with Butler, then good luck to them. But with Butler's... shall we say competitive drive, I'd think a year of playing .500 or less ball would likely drive him off more than help him stay. Teams will be real careful with their assets if they think they can just sign him outright next summer.

          We'll see if any teams are willing to make that bet. I'm sure the Raptors would be. And if anyone else is willing to ante up a real quality asset, we'll obviously be out of the running. But it's no guarantee that a team does that.

          • Ive wanted Butler forever always wanted to try for DD for butler. Mixed feelings about this now though. I really like the vibe right now this is a good crew. I hope theres some time for this team to play together and then Masai and Kawhi can assess and discuss Butler.

              Yeah this is a good point, I think the team would benefit from having up to the Feb trade deadline to see how the pieces fit, who takes off in development and who goes down (hopefully no one). One year can make a huge difference, as we've seen with FVV and Powell as extreme examples of ups and downs from one season to another. I also think that JB will be convinced to give it another shot in Minny at least until the deadline, he only played there for 1 yr, and things may change there as well.

                He couldn't even be convinced to go to Minny for today's meeting where it was scheduled to take place. Thibs is apparently on his way to LA now to have the meeting lol.

                  • That brings the roster to 20, so unless someone gets cut, that's the training camp roster set.

                          Stop the madness. Do we have to say all the same shit about Otto Porter and Khris Middleton again?

                            This is what happens when we get lost in advanced stats. We forget that's theres a small group of personnel able to score 25 a night (and assist on 5) fairl efficiently for a winning team.

                              Yep. Wondering when putting the ball in the dang basket became so underrated

                                It's not even getting lost in advanced stats, it's not looking at them properly.

                                A lot of these guys just throw usage and volume completely out of the window. That's one thing I like about golden, he always starts his player evaluation with that. It's important because you have to look at what a guy's damn role is before you start getting giddy about how efficient he is.
