Oh I know, I'm an hour outside of Philly myself. Also talked to countless fans who are understandably pissed it took this long. I mean, they wasted two solid years and drafted Noel and Okafor so it didn't all go to plan. But, here we are.

As a Laker fan I don't love it but I get it. Idea is another pick to add to any offer for PG13 who is gonna go cheap due to the idea he's going to LA anyway next year. Plus you get a year to look at Brook. And finally you only need to open another 17 million now to have 2 max level contracts. Lots of reasons to do the deals none that involve any guarantees. But neither is Dlo who still hasn't show top end talent yet. Nets get him cheap though and I still think he turns out well.
But the biggest thing here is Magic fixing Mitch's mistake in signing Mozgov go that deal and his perceived idea that Russell was also a mistake.
Yeah, I'm not a big fan of D Russ after wanting the 6ers to get him in the draft. Grant it, I'd take him over that bum Jah, but still...think it's one of those win-win type deals for now. Nets have nothing to lose to see if they might have something with him as they continue to sit out of the NBA draft while tanking...that's not a process you trust.

I mean my biggest thing is, and yeah I know we have new management so its a different mindset, but we used a #2 on him just two years ago, and now we're basically using him as a piece to gain cap space for NEXT year, having to attach him to a player we signed last year to a huge deal. Just a waste of resources, even if I get why we do this year. All is fine if Ball turns out to be the superstar he is projected as and Ingram develops into a star, and we end up with Paul George as is expected, but thats a shit load of ifs. Just would rather load up on youth and hope we hit on a number of those guys, than hinge on signing guys that are still a year out. But again, I understand and don't mind the logic used here.
I would have liked to see Russell play off ball with Ball before we gave up on him, because I think he would have thrived there, but oh well.
Dash: I fell asleep in the 3rd quarter of both games. Bucks/Hawks was hype though.

Dash: Bucks are not a good team and are only in because Nets/Hawks got injured. They look several steps behind Phoenix.

sativa417: I'm not a Chris Paul fan, since I hate his flopping and Grizz played his Clipps in some good playoff series, so he's like the enemy to me, but still a great player, so down for him finally getting a ring. Crazy Suns are where they are now. When James Jones

sativa417: took over as GM, people were crapping on some of his moves, but he's put together a hell of a team

kfilament: its interesting how everyone wanted to put an asterisk next to last years champions, but honestly this year seems fluky as hell with injuries, etc., but yeah, hate CP3 as a grizz fan by not mad to see him win one.

Dash: Feel bad for Paul and Booker. Ayton was so ass.

kfilament: Draft night and for once I am not worried the Grizz are going to fuck themselves on national TV
