Am I wrong in thinking that people may be over-reacting to the Thomas Robinson/Patrick Patterson trade?
853. Meatwad for Pope Posted: February 21, 2013 at 10:33 PM (#4373707)
Does Rose's brother actually know what happens in the NBA? If the bulls were able to magically add someone who could be a legit 2 scorer and get them over the hump I would have to think they would have done so already. It's not easy to find guys like that.
Hakim Warrick has made $17.2 million in his career. It's pretty amazing how much money you can make in the NBA or MLB simply by sticking around.
864 - yeah Parker's argument over Chris Paul this season would be based entirely on the minutes advantage. Parker has played around 20% more minutes than Paul. Might be enough to erase the rate differences between them. I think in this season it does.
By the way, on the recent Rosé comments... could it be that fear of upsetting Derrick was the reason they kept Rip (and will now pay tax)?

38 secs Kobe Bryant ?@kobebryant
LeBron and Durant are, unsurprisingly, 1-2 in the league in WS. Guess who's #3?
I would like to know where all the "Grizzlies can go all the way with this team" people were in between early December and the Gay trade. They were sure awfully quiet.
Fisher : the NBA version's Omar Vizquel
If the Bulls wanted, they could have sent money with Rip that pretty much would have covered his salary the rest of this year and the buyout for next. Not that I think Jerry would do that, but it wasn't rumored; it was rumored that Denver wanted him and wanted a first round pick to take him off the Bulls hands. The Bulls passed.
the people who have pushed the narrative that the Gay trade threw away some chance of playoff run have mostly seemed to me to be national mainstream-type commentators who just needed something to say about them after this trade went down
More of a backup catcher - Pat Borders?
I guess this way they can say 'we paid tax'?
Aldridge says that the Wiz and Clips agreed on an Ariza for Caron Butler swap, nixed by Sterling. (There's other interesting stuff there as well, no surprise considering the source.)
I was wondering why the hell the commissioner would get involved in a Butler-Ariza trade.
Yeah, I was trying to come up with a baseball Fisher -- a guy who was a role player on a bunch of championship teams, and then sticks around as a "leader" long after his playing ability has evaporated -- and couldn't really. I can think of guys like Vizquel, Kendall, and Julio Franco who pulled off the second part, but it's surprising how little that correlates with having won championships (in fact, if I'm not mistaken, those three combine for zero rings.)
I was wondering about this the other day. LeBron is shooting over 56% despite taking over 18% of his attempts as 3's. Does anyone have an easy way to find out what the highest FG% ever is for someone who takes, say, at least one 3 every 6 shots?
What do the non-Chicago people think of Rose coming back this year?
What do the non-Chicago people think of Rose coming back this year? I think that he should be back as soon as the doctors say he is fully ready to return. It is possible that there is a much higher risk of reinjury in the period immediately after a player returns, but I tend to think that the risk is built into the recovery timetable (ie- that doctors make a guy rehab until the risk is not that much more than normal). Rose and the Bulls are good enough that I do not think it is worth wasting a year of potential contention to minimally reduce the risk of reinjury.
