    Pritchard wanted to keep PG13 out of the East at any cost.

    I don't think the Pacers were offered much by Ainge who seems more intent on hoarding picks at this point.

    If they signed Hayward, I'm sure you'd have got one of the firsts for next year and possibly Marcus Smart.

    Gordon Hayward going to the Celts.

    Edit: hold up not so quick. Agent denying decision is made.

    Anyways he's gone to the C's so finally an all star from the West moves East. As for the Celts they're probably going to have to move Crowder. Olynyk is now an UFA. So they have Thomas, Bradley, Hayward, Brown, and Horford as presumptive starters. Then they'll have Smart, Zizic, Rozier, Tatum as their main bench players. Also a rumor that the C's are trying to trade for Marc Gasol.

    Warriors signing Casspi and Swaggy P. I like both moves.

    I used to watch a bit of Basketball in the early '90's when Jordan and Magic were playing

    In people's opinion, who is on their Mount Rushmore, of the greatest players of all time?

    I usually do my starting 5.

    Payton, Jordan, James, Duncan, Olajuwon.

    I kinda go back and forth on Shaq Olajuwon, but Hakeem wins the day for me. I'll always have Payton as my top PG. His defense is other worldly.

    Interesting. Is Jordan still considered the goat?

    Yes, but the hottest take around is to throw LeBron into that convo. Gets the people all hot and bothered.

    Nick Wright thinks that Lebron is the GOAT.

    I was never the biggest basketball fan but got into it a bit when the Bulls were doing their thing

    Also remember players like Drexler, Thomas and Malone. Remember watching Magic's return in that all star game.

    Watched a documentary on YouTube earlier about the 1992 dream team. Very interesting to say the least, especially on how all those great ego's got on with one another.

    I actually remember watching the dream team and it was actually seen as a farce over here. Still facinating though.

    So watched the Lakers Summer League game to see Lonzo. It wasn't good. Defensively he struggled a lot. I thought Ingram looked good and Brice Johnson for the Clippers looked good.

    Per ESPN's Chris Haynes.

    For those interested, I'm told Kevin Durant was in on the Peyton Manning gymanistic team roast at #ESPYS2017. KD played his part well.

    It looked like it was kinda staged. At least that was my impression when I first saw it.

    Kyrie Irving asked the Cavs to trade him in a meeting last week, sources told ESPN. Story posting on http://ESPN.com shortly

    Kyrie Irving requests a trade from Cavs, sources told ESPN. LeBron James was blindsided and is disappointed
    You're slipping, Acumen.

    FWIW I don't think he'll be traded.

    On another note the NBA offseason continues to **** all over the Transfer window.

    If Neymar moves, it will be tougher to call.

    I think he goes. No one ****es off LeGM.

    I think Kyrie wants to go, not because he doesn't like Bron, but because he probably knows Lebron is moving out next season. He doesn't want to be stuck there.

    I actually think the Knicks should make a trade and build it around Kyrie and Melo. The Knicks get back a guard who they can pair with Zinger and the Cavs get Melo and some residual players.

    Here have fun on the trade machine

    I don't think the Knicks have the pieces, to be honest.

    I was trying a 3-teamer to get Westbrook on the Cavs, just because. It's hard.
