    Ben is better than OG when healthy and playing, but not $18M better than him. Btw, he's not "healthy," nor is he playing.

    Doesn't he make less than half the money while being younger? I'd take OG straight up (with Dragić filler obv.) for Simmons given the situation.

    If all it hurts is his pride and reputation, so be it. But he's got a job to do. I'm fine with him walking back the comments.

    Do you think the picks would not be in the 17-23 game?

    You can have your opinion. I know for sure there are plenty who disagree. Rodman and plenty of other players are in this "skill-less" group of goons you're talking about. Rodman had no passing...

    If you have Bosh or Paul George as your 3rd best player, you've stacked the deck and have a super team. The role players you have surrounding them or the depth becomes very inconsequential because...

    I think he's working with some assumption that Ben Simmons is all Indiana needs to become a top playoff team. Even with lottery protection, the Pacers are eventually giving up a 17-23 pick which has...

    I wonder if you've changed your mind about Philly needing a top 5 player alongside Embiid just to be able call themselves a true contender yet?

    They absolutely do with the right scouting and talent evaluation and rookie development program. Maybe I'm admittedly biased because Miami's is run so well you have Omer Yurtseven types breaking...

    You're looking at it only in the view of your team due to bias. A team like Indiana has zero margin for risk dealing with a nutcase like Simmons. They have to win these types of trades. If they lose...

    I also think it's close. Definitely closer than any top 20 player or even the Brodgdon, Levert, and 2 1st type rumors.

    C'mon, man. We both know based on nearly 100% of the media reports that isn't true.

    The trades that were reported as basically laughed away? The rumored counter offers? The list of just 25 players...

    Ben is not natural SF in today's league. He can't shoot. This isn't the 90s where Anthony Mason is a SF. He's a PF, or potentially a small ball 5.

    Harris plays better and fits better at PF the...

    They're all power forwards and none of them a natural fit at SF unless we rewound time to the 90s.

    People don't get why Ingram, Kuzma, Caruso, Lonzo, etc have had exponential growth elsewhere. LeBron relegated Bosh and Love to spot up shooters, what do you think will happen to a young player? I...

    I think that's a decent offer if true. Yes, Grant is still injured, and Olynk is kinda dead weight, he only has 1 year remaining. Bey is a solid young player.

    Yes there is redundancy in Harris and...

    Ummm... Guys Bosh didn't make the top75 list. This is why I've been saying this discussion seems to be off-base.

    Only the teams with nothing to lose (Kings, Pelicans) should be going after Simmons.

    Everything said about the question marks and risk is spot on. I can't fathom paying $40M for an elite role...

    I think Pau's peak was just slightly higher, and he was a natural fit for the triangle offense which made him look very efficient. NBA career comparison again appears to lean towards Bosh having the...

    I think he made 2 or 3 All-Stars. He always had Conley and Randolph and a decent cast. The years Conley was down the record was trash. Tells us his impact and ability to carry a team aren't very...

    I really don't get where we're reaching with all of this. Miami had 3 players unquestionably in the top 20 talents and 2 unquestionably top 5 at the time. Had better role players than several of the...

    From 2010 to 2014, Bosh was unquestionably better in my opinion. I don't think there's anyone who can reasonably state Marc had a better career than Bosh either.

    I don't think it's true that Marc was better. He just had better teammates. I know with certainty I would rather Bosh during the big 3 years than Marc. I don't think it's a relevant discussion here...

    He was a bonafide all-star and dominant top 20 talent, with solid defense but never had good teammates. Calderon, Bargnani, TJ Ford, Mike James, Charlie V... tell me which of these are a good 2nd...
