I guess I don’t mind Crawford chucking bailout 3s with a big lead, but hopefully he has better judgement in a tight game (cue NYK/GS/ATL/POR fans laughing out loud)
Vinny jokes aside, I doubt Hollins gets minutes over Odom like in this simulation, unless its a real blowout.
Not fun to see Willie Green out there in place of Billups. . .please get well soon Chauncey.
Pumped to see this team take the floor in real life.
Yeah, I still can’t figure out why Odom doesn’t come off the bench first in the sim (I’ve checked the minutes and secondary position stuff for 2K12 wonks).
Here’s a question: who gets put in first – Turiaf or Hollins?
Turiaf would go in before Hollins in most cases.
Ah, I just realized these lineups are messed up on both sides. Lopez and Anderson are playing PF while Davis is the C. Hope the secondary positions are corrected so this and Odom not getting any minutes because he’ll only play when Griffin goes don’t happen.
Why is Crawford forcing threes I hope this doesn’t go down for real
Haha. Somewhere in this question is an ironic observation that validates the concerns of our patron blogosaints.
I know this is not really new news, but it looks like Gary Sacks is the frontrunner for the GM position.
i hate the toying around we know its a 99% chance that he gets it, enough waiting and just sign him
I think they’ll hold off on that until training camp begins.
As fo this new rumor of Dwight Howard going to the Lakers in a four team trade . . .
I don’t buy it, mainly because I don’t think Bynum will re-sign with Philidelphia. Bynum is in a very strong postion and can pretty well keep any trade from happening simply by saying he’s going to refuse to re-sign with the team he’s traded to. I’m guessing Bynum would rather stay with the Lakers, and he seems to be in a postion that will let hm.
Back to the key point. If Orlando wants to trade Howard before the season starts, the Lakers are likely out of it, as are the Nets, as are the Knicks, as are the Mavericks.
There’s only one other team out there of the five that Howard previously has said he’d re-sign with, the Clippers.
The Clipper brain trust cannot blow this chance.
The main thing they have to do is take back the two bad contracts Orlando wants to get rid of and then give Orlando some youth and some draft picks.
The good things about Jordan are that he’s big, young, athletic, has “potential” in the eyes of some and is under contract for three more years so he can’t walk immediately, and he doesn’t get injured.
Some team that has no center at all and has no other way of getting a center will take him. Even if Orlando doesn’t want him, the Clippers can find a third team that does want him.
no player should agree to sign an extension period. Their agent would shoot them for leaving money on the table. Especially if that player is worth a max deal.
These simulations don’t help at all. The Clippers got a lot of players that may or may not pan out. CP3 got a lot of players that he thinks will fit in his system. All of their stats/abilities should improve if CP3 is right. Maybe even a full season/preseason/practices with CP3 will even help DeAndre (had to throw that in there).
Screw the Lakers. Not that much better than with Bynum. Sorry.
don’t worry, the lakers have dug so deep to get the best out of the kobe era that once kobe and nash are done, with the new CBA that will get tighter by that time, and the fact that they are so far over the cap limit that they have screwed their future. And no 1st round picks for 6 yrs don’t help either. They will be dominant for a good 3 yrs but after that they are in trouble. And howard may not even resign with them.
So can we put DeMote and his troll persona out to pasture !
Durant if healthy but it’s between griffin and Durant
