  1. FA starts today, the draft happened. I will try not be a downer, but my NBA fandom took a ginormous hit and I'm trying to recover because sports should be fun.

    Tough this KD stuff. Obviously chicago can't put together the best talent package for him, OKC could. So it would need KD to say I want chicago, and he hasn't said anything so etc etc. I still think Gobert is a good move. It doesn't solve vs. all teams but certainly helps vs a team like philly/bucks. Should also help vs. Miami.

    it is very risky but does seem like one of those things where a player like AD could be injury prone until he isn't (like embiid now being largely ok). But also he could be completely toast like Dwight Howard.

    Ah, sorry. Extra credit to Hahn for trying. The sox farm is very bad. It's bad because there is a complete dearth of pitching depth and depth in general. It is nice they have players you named, but other teams also have players. And you rank 30th by comparing the teams to other teams, not just being impressed that they have players. The sox eventually need to beat other top teams, not just previous versions of themselves.

    Worse from you since the games were actually being played before midnight for you. I had to look it up. I think I only remembered because of bill simmons tears on twitter.

    Zach giving a verbal here...is there any flexibility added by waiting to sign his deal?

    Even though I was 99% sure it was happening it was still nervewrecking.

    You don't get credit for winning the equivelant of 90 games in a sixty game season, especially when they were gassed at the end (fired their manager because of it!) and got bounced in the first round to a team they should have beat. It may be impressive to say the sox have made playoffs two years in a row, but 2 playoff years in a 9 year span isn't even impressive to Rockies fans. He has not had a restrictive payroll, the Guardians have a restrictive payroll. They have made the playoffs 5 times in that span and never finished lower than 3rd. The Twins have a restrictive payroll, they have also made the playoffs more than Hahn and look likely/possible to make playoffs this year (on pace for 88 wins). The white sox purposely traded away all assets, lost purposely for 3 years straight and were rewarded with two playoff births. They have a maxed out payroll now. They have the 30th ranked farm. Their core players are underperforming. Yeah I think Hahn is perfect for this, definitely showed to be shrewder than maybe 1 other GM in baseball.

    well the real shame is they should have been able to use their bi-annual exception on Tristan Thompson, when that could have easily been used here. TT was cool though because he added nothing and was garbage.

    yeah, I guess my thing is that sometimes bad seasons happen even to good teams. The problem is hahn doesn't get benefit of the doubt that he can right the ship.

    To me Drummond is a guy you get on vet min. As seen by: last 2 years. That doesn’t mean he’s unproductive, just that you don’t want him being immovable. Using MLE should get you a legit add to the team, not incentives to get vet min guys you couldn’t recruit. Did not expect this team to be maxed out after last year, but they really are tapped

    Shane Riordan's interview with Rick Hahn

    I would be surprised if he didn't, his doing interviews is news in general and it plays as a clip every time he does his media availability. This definitely more newsworthy in that it brought back older stories and the TLR thing i guess.

    Shane Riordan's interview with Rick Hahn

    Hahn didn't realize when he did an interview with a Score producer that the score would talk about it? Hahn is trying his hahnwashing tour, where he gets to try and separate himself and act like his hands were tied from doing what the fans want.

    If I'm the Nets I'd want Derozan but you are correct that with Vuc you have an expiring.

    The answer to this is if Kevin Durant wants to go to Chicago it will happen, because the brooklyn nets will want a super star in the future and they will not want to be the first team that prevents him. But yeah. Salary wise it works. The Bulls then are severely limited in draft picks, and essentially would be able to trade the portland pick (not very valuable) and then would need to send off picks in 2027, 2029, etc.

  23. logistically, these seems insane. I wonder if divisions grow so large and we just see every big market state school become Big 10 or SEC, but there are 3-4 divisions each, and those conference championships may as well be the playoffs.
