HC NBA Ballers

I guess I'm a bandwagoner, but I've been rooting for GS for many years.  They play the unselfish small-ball that I love.  the Cavs, with Lebron and, especially, Irving, epitomize the kind of selfish ball that was so prevalent in the 90s, that I hate.

Much respect to the Cavs. LBJ and Kyrie are absolutely insane.

Agree, Cleveland did not embarrass themselves. They played hard and gave it their best shot.

I lost interest in basketball years ago when the Lakers were winning it every year. It got boring. Fortunately, I live in the bay area which is probably the only reason I'm into it now. So, band wagon here too.

The deck is stacked and looks like it will be for years to come which sucks for everybody else. That can't be bad for basketball in general can it?

Yeah, the Warriors dominance for the next 3-4 years most likely means the rest of the league is just going to wait it out and concentrate on building through the draft like the Warriors did, which means even less competition from the bottom 28 teams.

Any Kings fans in the Bay area? It's hard to be a Kings fan when the front office is one of the worst in the league, and that's saying something when compared to the Jim Buss ran Lakers and Knicks in general.

What in the fucking hell is Chicago doing?

Pax didn't just kill this team, he absolutely obliterated any semblance of cohesiveness, skill, or potential.

I was wondering the same thing.  Chicago probably needed to go into complete rebuild mode but this appears to be a terrible first step.  Certainly they could have gotten more/better for Butler.

It's disgusting how far they've fallen from the 2011-2012 roster on every possible front, including coaching.

Pre-injury Rose, Noah, Deng, Boozer, Hamilton, Gibson, Korver, and Butler. A couple more seasons with Thibs and that roster would have had a title.

Chicago needs a rebuild of its front office. What a robbery.

Levine and Dunn don't really project out to be starters, and for the two of them plus #7 they traded one of the best two-way wings in the game?

Jeez.

EDIT: Nice take on the trade (as usual) by Zach Lowe: http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/page/presents-19712292/zach-lowe-jimmy-butler-trade-future-minnesota-timberwolves-chicago-bulls-nba

I suspect what was behind the trade was a lot simpler:

I would assume their intention is to do a full rebuild and tank for draft picks the next few years. Can't tank properly if you have players that actually do well together.
