Re: 2013 NBA Offseason/Draft

NBA is not my favorite sport to watch, I'll watch a college basketball game over an NBA game any day of the week. (Except come conference finals and NBA finals time)

I feel like NBA drafts of recent have been similar to this past years NFL draft. Theres a lot of drafts that your lucky if you get a future top 20 NBA player out of it. Its very rare that we get a Durant, LeBron, Wade, Carmelo caliber players.

Supposedly next year this Wiggins and the Randle guy and the two brothers going to Kentucky, are supposed to be the next 03 class of players. We'll see. I've watch some of Wiggins highlight tape and saw another Michael Kidd Gilcrest.

Folks the teams has really nice young talent. Sux Ariza opted in. But I expect playoffs this year.
If they can keep Nene healthy this team has a shot to do some stuff. They need some of their other young guys like Singleton and Seraphin to become decent pieces but a starting 5 with Beal, Wall, Porter, Nene, and Okafor should hold teams near 90 almost every night.

Ah, gotcha... Yeah, it seems Philly is throwing caution to the wind with the center position.

Because Bynum is a free agent and they aren't going to re-sign him. I seriously doubt Bynum ever plays again with that knee damage.

^^told you he's bad.



New Orleans Pelicans make offer to Tyreke Evans, according to report - ESPN

The Pelicans have lost their mind if they are gong to pay Evans 10mil per season. This guy's stats have dropped over the four years he's been in the league. WTH are they thinking?

Yeah I totally forgot he's an FA

Meanwhile, Eric Maynor to the Wizards. Decent move but I think some people have "local kid" goggles on when it comes to him

Jamison possibly returning is interesting

MAynor is a good upgrade at backup PG. Better than AJ Price

Re: 2013 NBA Offseason/Draft

Mos def like the Maynor move, SS are you saying Maynor is fugly?

I wouldnt mind the Jamison move, we need to strengthen the bench. Adding a high character vet is nothing but a plus. Just worried at his age having to play serious minutes if Nene or Okafor went down. Jamison starting wouldnt be a good look.

Wow, I am really out of touch with the NBA. The New Orleans Pelicans?

Washington Wizards re-sign Martell Webster to 4-year, $22 million contract - ESPN

22 million?

Re: 2013 NBA Offseason/Draft

Seems like an over-payment, but the fourth's only partially guaranteed. Shooters are a commodity in the league today- Clips just traded their best asset for Redick and Dudley.

I think Wall wanted Webster here and he may take a million less than max when it's time to ante up (so it may wash out with the slight discount).

Re: 2013 NBA Offseason/Draft

Martell Webster is kind of the Rex Grossman of the Wizards. Very few people outside the team facilities understand why he's there, but his teammates love him. That said...with Wall and Beal being so young, it's hard to believe Webster himself is only 26 himself

Re: 2013 NBA Offseason/Draft

I was on the fence with this move, but Id like to see us keep Webster. Think there is growth yet in his game. Seems like a little much, but im good with it.

Re: 2013 NBA Offseason/Draft

I don't watch much basketball (NBA that is) but I got the impression that Martell Webster was just a solid player who turned into one of the few bright spots on such a bad team, that the fans over hyped him and his value.
