    No question NBA teams overpay for middle talent players, but you were talking about top players right?

    Are you implying that the NFL draft compensation DOES make up for losing star players in free...

    The problem, if you want to call it that, is in legacy. Are people going to continue to overrate Beal and use the lack of team around him as an excuse.

    That said I appreciate when a great player...

    Not at all. My point was that the NBA DOES have a mechanism for getting something in return for losing a top player with the sign and trade option. That doesn't really exist as a mechanism in the...

    Okay, they knew before the season started that they would have limited time from wiseman during the season. He had several setbacks that they didn't plan for.

    They actually started last year with the plan to have no player in the 15th spot and fully knowing Klay and Wiseman would miss the first half of the season. So they had planned to go through half...

    I've heard that for 3 years ... they won anyhow.

    It's not uncommon for teams to leave a roster spot open just in case, and it's uncommon for teams to have regular rotations even 12 players deep.

  15. To win the last game you have to have a star who can play up to the big game

    Who are those guys?

    We know these:
    LeBron (maybe/maybe not at 38)
    Curry
    Kawhi
    Giannis

    Who is next?
