I agree with most of the coach selections. There will always be a couple of contentious ones, this year I agree Aldridge is touch and go. I would likely have put Ibaka in his place. The fans will always get a couple wrong every year but I still like the concept of being able to influence the team.
Can't argue with Chandler. He is a game changer on defense and puts up pretty reasonable points at a very high clip, especially given the ballstoppers he plays with.
Bulls with our now traditional let down game after a good win.
Rondo tore his ACL. Tough break for the already slumping celtics.
Fresh off his "JUICY AUSTRALIA TOUR"
Anyone who trades Rondo for Gortat is far from genius
Well that Rondo injury is the final blow to my fantasy chances. Unless that dipshit that I just offered him up for Wade to makes the trade before David Stern steps in and nixes it.
Without Rondo, they will no doubt be better defensively.
Rondo is a top 5 point guard in the league but he is no team leader.
I think the C's will rally without him. The leaders on the team will lead and the new guys like Terry and Lee and Barbosa will get a chance to help these guys win.
I hope Ainge gives these guys at least until the end of February to get their shit together.
the way the Wolves last year were a .500 team with Rubio, and totally went in the tank after he went out. Rondo, who is much better, I think the Celtics will unfortunately meet the same fate as the Wolves last year (and actually this year, because the Wolves suck lol)
Rudy Gay to Toronto in three team deal.
Not really sure how this helps Memphis but good for the Raptors. Finally a star
You must not know much about Rudy Gay then? I've been a huge fan of Rudy since McDonalds all-american game and I know he's and underachieving overpaid non-star. Griz get grit and championship experience in Prince who fits their culture much more along with front court depth in Davis and floor spacing in Daye, while getting rid of a ball stopping overpaid non-star, what's not to get?
Hmmmm... If he was their best player why has he never been an all star and ZBo is this year?
Grizz were paying max to a non-All Star, while going over the luxury tax, so they had to move him. They won without him too if you recall from last year.
Statistically Rudy Peak four years ago, he's been declining in every category and is NOT a franchise player
Trade should have been done in the offseason. Their positioning is too good to change their roster like that. Just watch they're gonna finish 5th or worst now
So they're going to go from 4th to 5th? Yikes... And I still have to disagree, if the NBA were a video game I'd agree with you but ego plays a roll among other factors and I think it was the right move.
I do think Prince is a better team player, but Rudy made some big shots down the stretch for that team, a lot of game winners. I don't know if they have a perimeter player that can create their own shot anymore.
And, if you remember, the Grizzlies made a nice end-of-season run last year without Rudy Gay. He was more expendable than people realized.
