Who plays A. Hernandez and "pulls the trigger tonight"?
We are all obviously seeing TONS of trade rumors floated around right now, so of these major trades which one do you all think actually goes down?
Bledsoe & Nicholson/Afflolo & Butler - Think this trade is a lot more about the Clips not be able to afford Bledsoe in the near future. Of the trades I've seen floating around, I think this is the most likely to happen. The Magic have the ability to take back any number of bad contracts, which makes dumping talent like Bledsoe a little more appealing. The Magic are somewhat jammed up at PF so letting Nicholson go makes sense (T Harris/Vucevic are way better).
KG & Pierce to Nets - I think the Clips thing is over & done with, but I do think Danny Ainge needs to do these guys the favor of putting them in place to take at least one more shot at a title. I've heard MaRshon Brooks name thrown out there as the guy the Celts like...but who else? They C's would HAVE to take back a bad contract i.e. Humphries is WAY overpaid (amnesty his a$$ ASAP) and maybe Gerald Wallace? I don't see this going down because I don't see where the money can work without NJ giving up major roster pieces.
Cavs Trade #1 Pick - I'm not sold on Len, I just don't see how he ended up going from mid 1st to #1 in the last 3 weeks of interviews, the guy can't even play right now. A ton of GM's are low on this class, so I think the Cav's are stuck with the pick...
Thunder trading up or out - The Thunder are the only team in this draft that I believe has the ability to draft and store Noel. In an ideal world, they could get up to the top 5 with a combination of picks/bench talent and let him sit for a year (I think ALL ACL tears should be sat for an entire season, don't come in mid-way) That being said, I think the thunder don't pull the trigger...
Just for the title, +1.
You win everything today, sir.
EL OH EL
I like the Bledsoe for Afflalo trade. It's almost a no brainier for both teams and is the most likely to happen. The Magic need a PG for the future and then they can take either Oladipo or McLemore with the second pick. The Clippers need a starting SG and size at the position since Crawford is much better suited as a sixth man.
That topic title. Too soon?
Pretty soon lol. Although I have to admit I couldn't stop laughing when I heard someone say in a Ron Burgundy voice "I saw that. Aaron Hernandez killed a guy"
Not funny at all, a 27 year old man was murdered violently.
It's not a joke about the poor gentleman that was murdered, but more so comparing the stupidity of A. Hernandez to the often bone-headed moves of NBA GM's on draft night. If I offended anyone, I do apologize, but I feel as though Hernandez will not only become the butt of jokes, but the "poster child" for whatever the NFL decides to do with its gang of hooligans. 27 arrests since the super bowl is unbelievable, & two of them are murder investigations! (Yes Ausar Walcott, a Browns rookie LB is going through his own attempted murder investigation) It's the people who DON'T talk about this stuff that prevent change...sure we can sweep it under the rug (anyone remember Dante Stallworth killed a guy while drunk driving and got a month in prison, Ray Lewis was also wrapped up in a murder investigation that got "cleared up" quickly) So again, I apologize, but whining that it's not funny isn't the answer either...better to just forget about it right? Nope, I prefer the "in your face" approach.
