    Well, its a series of dominos. They trade Knight (who is a ball hog and has to shoot a lot) for MCW. Thank god MCW sucks and the Bucks fall into lottery and select Jabari Parker. Granted, Parker is still not a proven player, but if the Bucks had all three this season they are a top 4 team. MCW gets offloaded to the Bulls (Thank you!) for Snell who has been a much better team player and a huge improvement over MCW.

    Middleton is a huge piece of the team. Much better defense and a much more accurate shooter. Right now they are a tough scrappy team who no one wants to face in the first round.

    Also, Brogdon looks like he'll be Rookie of the Year.

    Eh, IMHO still lots of pointless crap while the pieces with an interesting point to make are about three times as long as they need to be and filled with flab and writerly showing-off.

    I tried reading the Mike Trout piece and it just went on and on and on with little anecdotal illustrations of the same general point.

    These refs in the Spurs-Thunder game just can't help blowing their whistles. It's literally every possession in these last few minutes of the game, and I can't see a single infraction at all.

    Jesus Dubs are on a roll. Imagine when KD comes back

    Cavs might not even make finals

    My prediction of KD hoisting up the Finals MVP gonna happen


    Iguodala and David West off the bench are playing solid. Hell, even Barnes and McGee are decent. I hope they sweep the Cavs

    More isn't always more, though.

    Derrick rose....


    Generally I would agree that more isn't better but KD is pretty much the perfect fit as a Dubs SF. I mean he'd be a good fit anywhere, but dubs especially. An elite spot up shooter who can abuse smaller guys in the post, eye for passing, killer midrange game, and insane length for defense. Everything Barnes was supposed to be but better

    Ball moved less when KD was on court but I feel like its because everybody was way more open and didn't need to pass as much for s great shot

    Not just a replacement for barnes but also david lee. A great great fit.
