Hey, it sounds like Wizards have had their meeting with Pierce and called him first out of any FA and it sounds very positive! Wizrads are confident they are getting him back so i don't know how we are affording him?
I've heard that the Wizards are looking at Derrick Williams, and thats who i really want now, and he'll be cheap too, thoughts on him?
Yeah Ellngton will be nice, i think the Lakers are high on him, he's a bit of a up and down guy though, like he was crap with the Mavs.. Bellineli would be perfect, he could be hard to get, Bobcats have him as their number 1 target and so do a few other teams.. But yeah, im on the same page as you, i want a scoring guy off the bench.. Hey, whats happening with Seraphin?
I like the pick, i wasn't sure about it at first, i was all for Bobby Portis aye.. But Oubre is a guy Washington was in a situation where they were able to take him- taking a risk on a high upside player! I like his game and some people think he has one of the highest upsides in the draft.. If Oubre works out too, it will allow us to play Porter a lot at the 4 and go with the small ball movement that the league is now dominated by, plus Oubre seems to be high on KD's views too!
I really wanted Portis so we had young potential for the future right from the PG-PF.. But yeah, i'm happy with the pick man. I didn't follow him too much before the draft either, i never thought he was a guy we could potentially have,let alone trade up for!
What FA's you want?
Martell Webster + DeJuan Blair + 19th pick
Ryan Anderson and Jeff Whitney
would you do that? "Anthony Davis" NOLA fan, suggested the trade, i'd be happy with that! Ryan Anderson is owed 8.5m next season but then is a FA next offseason, so we'd have his and Nene's contracts coming off the books in time for Beal's FA.
Oubre or Dekker
Yeah, and i think Wall being snubbed again will add fuel to his fire with him wanting to be a recognized elite PG.
I'd be so happy if we fired Grunfield, despite the offseason success, he needs to go, he's been lucky with how Wall and Beal have turned out, but other than that theres not much he's done (all other decisions have been obvious ones, even the Wall and Beal selections)..
I don't know enough about the draft yet, i've been a bit useless this year, because i've been focused a lot on the NFL offseason, and i don't watch NCAA so i don't get to see much of the players outside the top 8.. But i know about Portis, because i would like to see him in Dallas if not WAS, Kaminsky would be nice to drop, and Jerian Grant looks like he could be a lottery pick potentially?
I'll check Lyles out though, i'm intrigued.. Looney does look like a real bust candidate! I'm all for signing a combo guard or a stretch 4 (stretch 4's are pretty much becoming vital in todays NBA), so yeah Jerian Grant would be my favorite choice now, but from what i have been seeing he's out of reach i think..
I have a feeling Pierce is going to go to the Clippers now after all the speculation, best case scenario would be for Jordan to go to DAL which would make LAC look less desirable meaning Pierce stays one more year. My top FA i want is Gerald Green also. I'm interested in whether WAS will resign Seraphin too?
Yeah it's straight bullsh** bro, after the success of the post season especially! Oh well i guess it's just more fuel to add to his fire in terms of trying to put the league on notice. He will be a top 3 PG next season with Russ and Curry.
What's your thoughts for the offseason?
Damn sucks we lost today, and can't believe Pierce missed the easiest three he had all night to tie the game. Uh well, i guess we can't get to depressed about the loss seeing as Wall was still out! Really disappointed in Gortat though, with Beal and Pierce having such monster games, if Gortat had of contributed we could easily be up 3-1..
I had a prediction that who ever won this game would go on to win the series, that's if Wall remained out. But he was listed as 'questionable' today, i was shocked to see that! Maybe they are going to push his recovery and play him in this series? Maybe game 5 we'll see a return? I hope so! If we don't have Wall back i don't expect us to advance sadly.
Good point about the time line of Kawhi's hand recovery, i never thought about how long his recovery took. Uhh 3-4 weeks is a long time though, especially when you think it's only been a week now since it happened.. He still hasn't dribbled or anything on it so it doesn't look like he's pushing for a quick recovery, and i seen the reports that they don't want to push him for future references..
Oh man, that 4th qaurter, how about Schroeder torching us for 15 points in the quarter alone! And yeah that Muscala 3, i couldn't believe that, and Mike Scott coming on and hitting 3's as if they were simple lay ups! Bud kept rotating until he finally found guys that would work, and we are damn lucky he didn't find the right group of guys a minute earlier, i think if that game went into O.T we wouldn't have won..
Honestly i think who ever wins game 4 will win the series, may seem a bit bold especially if ATL win and only draw the series but i really do think this game will draw the momentum for the winner. If Washington win game 4 i see it only being a 5 game series, while if ATL win they'll end up taken it away.. The good thing about game 4 was that nor Sessions or Bynum had big games, so hopefully Nene keeps playing aggresive and Sessions comes out and plays better and then i'll like our chances!
Yep Wall's injury sucks so much, and i honestly think he is done for the season, because like you said it's not worth playing him when we are literally not going to win a championship and have him stuffed long term too.
Wow, what a game! How about being up 18 in the 4th, then Schroeder, Mack and Bazemore torching us to then rely on a buzzer from Pierce! I think i aged about 10 years from stress in that game! Up 2-1, going to be tough still to advance without Wall, but after going up 21, theres no reason why we can't beat these guys, we just can't fall asleep and lose composure like we did in the 4th again! And then i thought we lost Pierce when he went down early in the 1st with his shoulder! So stressful, such a crazy game!
Otto man, i can't stop raving about him! And Beal, having 5 assists in the first quarter, great way to fill Wall's void!
Nene, finally! That's all i can say!
