@  slick shoes : (23 May 2016 - 12:24 PM) The worst part about Green is that he tries to play that nice guy role à la Reggie Miller.
@  Mario Peña : (23 May 2016 - 02:00 AM) Im quite pleased the Thunder are decimating the Warriors.
@  Mario Peña : (23 May 2016 - 12:54 AM) I cannot stand Draymond Green. I don't like him in any way. That dude is cheap and he's one of the main reasons I really don't like the Warriors.
@  majik19 : (21 May 2016 - 05:28 PM) no need to rush it now - only one other opening to compete with, and no first round draft pick to get input on.
@  Mario Peña : (21 May 2016 - 02:19 PM) SteinyMo reporting James Borrego from Pop's bench is now getting a look. Wow just wow.
@  majik19 : (20 May 2016 - 09:32 PM) I saw that report. Silas seems like a swing for the fences move, but isn't he exactly like JBB? Harden didn't respond to JBB, why would he respond to another longtime coach's son?
@  Mario Peña : (20 May 2016 - 07:29 PM) So Watkins is reporting its between D'Antoni and Silas.
@  Mario Peña : (20 May 2016 - 06:30 PM) In retrospect some of what has happened over the last few years going back to Lin, McHale and maybe a few other things seem to have Alexander's fingerprints on them and even if true to an extant that's troubling to me. Just when I thought things couldn't be worse, oh well.
@  thejohnnygold : (20 May 2016 - 04:58 PM) If so, this site will become more of a support group than a fan board.
@  slick shoes : (20 May 2016 - 03:14 PM) Is Les becoming the next Jerry Jones? Yikes...
@  majik19 : (20 May 2016 - 02:59 PM) oh i was half-joking haha.
@  slick shoes : (20 May 2016 - 12:21 PM) @majik19 Why screw the team long term with a decision that only affects them THIS season? I don't get it. If I was Morey and my boss kept over ruling my decisions, I'd give some serious consideration to stepping down.
@  majik19 : (20 May 2016 - 05:12 AM) @slickshoes - maybe thats why theyre considering D'Antoni - just want to make sure Dwight opts out.
@  thejohnnygold : (19 May 2016 - 04:38 PM) I think I have a bias against Rambis from his playing days. The thought of him being our coach just feels wrong...
@  slick shoes : (19 May 2016 - 03:11 AM) Does this mean Rambis is available?!
@  Mario Peña : (19 May 2016 - 03:05 AM) Hornacek goes to the Knicks.
@  slick shoes : (18 May 2016 - 11:05 PM) Who was the coach of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2014 when Dwight left to come to Houston? None other than Mike D'Antoni.
@  Cooper : (18 May 2016 - 08:16 PM) very uninspiring if they do go with him.
@  thenit : (18 May 2016 - 07:13 PM) It will be so much fun having game totaling 250+ points. Oh and we won't win anything either
@  slick shoes : (18 May 2016 - 12:19 PM) @majik19: the story also said that if they hire D'Antoni there will be a defensive specialist as an associate head coach. does this send a message to the team? defense comes second?

This is why I have buyer's remorse just from considering a trade scenario. I was not happy with that trade...I get why management did it....but I think I would have preferred to keep them.

Hindsight is always 20/20. And had it not been a torn ACL by the starting PG it would have been the Rockets with Clyde Hakeem and Chuck vs. the Jordan Pippen Rodman Bulls. But Stockton tore up The backup

I always thought Cassel was the piece we missed most after the Barkley trade. You just brought back my old pain...

Yeah, hindsight is 20/20. I didn't like the trade the moment I heard it. I know others around here disagree--even Rahat referred to it today in his article. He may very well be right that Barry getting injured and the Rockets moving forward with Maloney was the reason that trade ultimately did not bear fruit. My point is we would have had Horry and Casell. That would have helped too....then, and into the future.

As a history major what one learns is not just facts and dates and names, etc. That is just for reference. History is the study of lessons. Recognizing patterns of mistakes helps future decisions. Emptying the cupboard for an aging star seldom bears fruit and almost always less than what you would have had.

KG, Allen, and Pierce pulled it off.

Miami with Shaq, Wade and the referees pulled it off (i still don't really count this one...imo, the refs gave wade ridiculous calls and lots of them.)

The Lakers with Wilt (that trade is mind blowing...lakers gave up next to nothing for a guy that averaged 24 points, 23 rebounds, and 8 assists. Huh?)

I don't count the Kareem trade...he was still in his prime.

Barkley to Phoenix worked pretty well....but Phoenix did not "clear the cupboard" in that trade...Philly made a bad trade.

It's just my perception of it all. Unless you are getting Lebron or KD it's not worth it....and even then, it usually leaves very little left to put around your new star....so, still not worth it.

Maybe I am missing all the examples of when it did work and the team clearly would not have been better off standing pat. Anyone got an example?
