    Watching this implosion as a fan of a team that owns Brooklyn's draft for the next five years is just absolutely glorious. Normally I'd have a stronger opinion on this one way or the other or be...

    Yeah, I can understand why Boston would make the move, and I think there's a point where the risk is worth the potential reward and a point where the risk just becomes too high. If you're moving...

    He was. Statistically, I still think he gets overrated by most fans, as the average fan typically still puts him in the top 10 when he's probably more of a top 12-15 guy. His average scoring...

    Ahhh... OK. Yeah, that makes more sense. I'm just like... "Why would Sixers fans hate the 538 guy?" I was over here Googling "Nate Silver Sixers hate" and totally drawing a blank.

    I eventually came to appreciate Kobe, but not until after he retired. I just couldn't stand him when he was on the court. Honestly, PSD was such a huge part of that. Lakers fans were so rampant on...

    Ugh... Nate Silver? Care to explain that one? Why even include him here?

    I think it's got to be both. Curry is a great example. Seems like a good dude and a likeable guy. Next to Lebron, he's probably second in line for "face of the league." His game is fun to watch and...

    I'm probably leaving some guys/teams off, but from my own perspective, here are the historically most hated players and teams as well as currently most hated for Rocket fans:

    That's an absurd package. If Durant was 26-28, I could understand it. But he's not worth anything close to that anymore at 34 given his injury history. If Brooklyn is expecting that level of package,...

    If I'm the Celtics, I'm not sure I make this trade. You just made it to the Finals and got better in the offseason. There's a foundation there to be a perennial 55-60 win team moving forward....

    Jesus. This thread has become a train wreck. I can handle bad basketball takes, but I draw the line at some of the sexist **** from the last few pages. If you think all women "communicate" the same...

    ESPN said they had a .151 batting average in the series, which is the lowest season series average against a team in the franchise's history. They did pretty a big chunk of their damage in the ninth...

    Astros sweep the doubleheader and go 5-2 in the season series against the Yankees. Offensively, they really struggled against Astros pitching.

    I look forward to those two hopefully facing each...

    Yeah, you had the "everyone take a discount" take in another thread, and it's not a good take. Players should be paid their worth and what the market dictates and shouldn't have to take massive...

    Three things on this.

    1. $500K for a fine seems excessive. That I agree with OP.

    2. If Lacob had only built his teams around drafted stars, he'd have a leg to stand on. He doesn't. The...

    I just don't get it. Like, I've always said that I never fault anyone for moving jobs if they can make more money and it's the right move for them and their family. But moral questions with LIV...

    No, but I also think those guys were high draft picks for a reason; there's a solid chance that (aside from Wiggins) one of Kuminga or Wiseman could be All-Stars down the line. Also, the biggest loss...

    I'm confused what point you're trying to make here. How did Curry not earn this runing, and what does it have to do with Durant going to GS? And as far as rings go, I don't know where it lands on the...

    I did understand the argument. It's not a "me understanding" issue, it's a "you making assumptions based on supposed intel" issue—as you mention above.


    The facts never changed. Your "facts"...

    Until a couple of hours ago, they did have leverage in a trade—it's pretty simple. If they tell Indiana, "Go ahead and sign him, we're going to match," that's leverage. They can force Indiana or any...

    Yeah, per ESPN, he can't be dealt anywhere until Jan. 15, he can't be dealt to Indiana for a year and he can veto any trade for a year.

    The ESPN story is saying Phoenix is likely to match. Even...

    Based on the dollar figures I was looking at, I didn't think Indiana had the money for a max deal. Clearly I was wrong. But you're also wrong in suggesting that Phoenix has no leverage. They could...

    So hypothetically let's assume they make the deal and it involves Wiggins, Wiseman, Kuminga, Baldwin, etc. Pretty much all of their quality young assets, but we'll leave Pool alone. They get the next...

    In this case, though, they're not even getting Turner and the first back. Those are all going to other teams. If Phoenix gave up all those assets, but they got Turner back as Ayton's replacement, I'd...
