Okay lol

There's no amount of cancerous impact pervading his body that can make him a net negative on a team that hardly needs him.

Dude is a bonafide 20+ and 10+ monster joining the likes of the leagues best.

Keep being the worst poster on the board though.

nerlens noel for okc

their lineup is looking rather juicy, i'm certain they'll be a top 5 defensive team next year

cousins very well could disrupt the team dynamic, as subtle as it may seem

pretty soon you'll have stories about dray and cousins not getting along, and eventually cousins sitting 4th quarters in the playoffs

people said the same thing about melo, cancers have a way of being cancerous no matter how needed they are

look at kobe in 2016, guy was a 10th option talent, but his mere presence prevented the lakers from winning any games

Dwight is underrated as a signing


He is obviously nowhere near the dominant player he was, but he is so much better on D than Gortat.

Also, the Wizards haven't had a scorer+ball-handler off the bench in YEARS. Austin Rivers fits that role. Our bench has been unable to score for years. Hopefully that will change with Oubre Improving and Rivers handling the ball. I know he isn't great, but we have been running with guys like Ramon Sessions, Alan Anderson, and Marcus Thornton off the bench as 6th man scorera (and all those dudes we're washed up). Austin Rivers is way better than Tim Fraiser.

He is a 280lb beast who just blew his achilles. He may never been the same. He may not be able to get up and down the court anymore.

He also could be a pissed off wrecking ball trying to earn a max contract.

I don't buy it lol

Y'all can bite on those wishful pretenses all you want but I ain't buying in.

Do I want to see them implode? Absolutely...

Don't see it happening though. He's too effn good and when surrounded by 4 top tier all stars coupled with the motivation to cash in next year on a max deal.... Would be nice but keep dreaming boys

Just rename this thread “what player did your favorite team sign?”

BroLo has to be one of the best signings out there, fits the Bucks perfectly. His range will spread the floor, and his uncanny ability to box out for his team mates to grab rebounds will pay major dividends.

Worst signing, to me, is Avery Bradley. Clippers front office/coaching staff still thinks he's a dominant on ball defender, which hasn't been the case for quite a while and it just lead to an overload of bodies at the guards. It'll cost some playing time for SEGA & Jerome, while also taking time away from Lou Gotti. As a result, the franchise had to get rid of CJ Williams and probably Jawun Evans as well. Both of whom grew on the fans last season. I'm just glad year two is a team option and not guaranteed.

Can we do a takeback on that trade?
