Yea, 14 seconds shot clock after an offensive rebound is no biggie and already in the international game for two years I think (edit: looked it up and it is already in place since 2014). The less difference between FIBA and NBA basketball, the better IMO. Just have different rules for stuff that seems to be really important (like game length, time-outs being called during live play etc.).

Breaking news: Mark Cuban is a douche bag but a pretty good actor. Silver is such a pussy 10 million dollars.... what a joke.

5 years, nearly $40 million per season.

To get to 190 over 5, he has to make an All-NBA team in 18-19 (or win MVP or defensive player of the year). Won't be easy, but possible (he made All-NBA 3rd team last season). 158 over 5 is the other scenario. The same Porzingis gets offered next summer by us.

I’d love to see Jimmy Butler traded to Milwaukee. https://www.google.com/amp/s/dairylande ... utler/amp/

Raptors are looking like they will implode. Lowry feels scorned. Kawhi probably doesnt wanna be there.. Good job on sending your best player away for a rental. :thumbsup:

Same here.

I’m happy with Knox, but I too would’ve drafted Miles Bridges over him.

Why? I felt like Miles had that dog in him. Little did I know: Knox appears to have it, too.

Knox [rumored] outplaying Bridges in their one-on-one matchup upped Knox’s draft stature. I still would’ve selected Miles Bridges [over Knox and Mikal Bridges, for that matter] though, cause I place more value on what he accomplished in college.

Well said naz. Being undersized at your position shouldnt be that big of an issue, take for example the pf and pg position.

Not how tall you are but how tall you play. Do you believe this? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=H9mLRtre7AA

Well my thing was, he was a SF in college so its likely hed be a SF in the NBA but everybody put him at either SG or PF saying his size was an issue but his speed was subpar. I watched this guy alot and for 2 seasons he beasted.

I'm not gonna second guess Knox though. He's still more raw than people realize. I always felt that Miles body and strength made him NBA ready and I was right about that but Knox may still have a way higher ceiling. Even with how awesome he looks now which is scary, so I'm good with waiting
