    Lillard is such a boss, would love to have him on my team.

    A shame they have no ability to build around him

    Really felt before the season began they needed to go all in for Bradley Beal and leave no stone unturned to get it done

    Would he be a great fit? Two heavy shooting guards? I guess he'd be an upgrade on McCollum.

    Also don't think Wizards were allowed to trade Beal this season after signing him to a max last year - at least from what I've read on a Raptors forum I visit when they frequently bring him up.

    I'd say it's the Curry/Thompson scenario. No such thing as too much shooting

    Yeah but Klay is a top 5/10 guard defender in the league. Beal Dame are nowhere near that.

    I think part of the problem is Dame is a very hard player to build around himself. I personally think he'd be the absolutely perfect 2nd fiddle to LeBron or Ben Simmons type players but that's not happening.

    I mean the obvious comparison is Curry but the Warriors were absurdly special as a team.

    Thompson for mine is the best catch and shoot SG I've seen play the game.He's an elite level defender, he passes the ball at a high level and he's an absurd shooter. I can think of maybe a dozen guys with comparable pure catch and shoot skills in the 25 odd years I've been watching and none of them could do the other two things at close to that level and even the best of those would have had a hard time accepting being the 2nd and then 3rd fiddle.

    Green is also a truly unique talent. He's genuinely in the LeBron or Pippen level as a guy who can legitimately defend 4-5 positions at an elite level and be an elite playmaker on offense, with the added bonus of being a dangerous enough shooter to to keep defenses honest (especially from his spots). I can't think of many more guys who are close to that as a player and those that do come to mind such as Simmons or Garnett are also special players.

    That's not even mentioning the whole Durant factor that made that team win 3 titles rather than perhaps just the one.

    I think at the end of the day the problem is that Lillard is an ultra specific build as the best player that probably requires generational talent at other positions around him (not necessarily superstars but skillset wise) to achieve it, realistically the weaknesses that he does have in his game make him the perfect 2nd star and finding that star above him is pretty damn hard, especially for a non-FA option team like Portland.

    Thon Maker really going to work at the moment. Drummonds trade is huge for him. At the very least he is guaranteeing himself a future with this form.

    Jonah Bolden waived. In all honesty him skipping the World Cup has proven to be career suicide. A good World Cup could have got him noticed. Now you feel he will drift of into the G-League to never return

    You missed the funniest part. When he became a citizen they said he had to change his name to a more South Korean name. So Gunna Ra isnt his actual name. Thats his South Korean name

    His actual name is Ricardo Ratliffe

    We should ask Matisse Thybuille to change his name to something more Australian

    Was thinking Daryl Johnson myself

    Embiid chucking his toys out of the pram is interesting to watch play out. Check his Instagram

    I imagine he asks for a trade at years end
