Thibodeau connection. Wolves fans are going to revolt when Thibs plays Rose over Tyus Jones.

Crowder and James were not enough to make up for IT's mistakes when the offensive initiator constantly blew by IT. Get the cancer out of there, and insert Hill's grittiness, it can change chemistry instantly. For the present, the Cavs are much improved, but can they get that chemistry by Boston in May. And with Love due back in of March, would it be enough time to roll all those guys together.......
That trade actually made me watch the game today. Cavs defense looks a lot better. Got rid of those old bodies that were embarrassing on the defensive side.

Was thinking the same thing about Love coming back. Any chemistry they get before then could require a re start.

It makes the East a little more interesting but the Warriors are hardly sweating.

Even the announcers got into a discussion on the air about how the Warriors are still going to win it. One of them just stated out loud that we all know GS will be the champs again. The other announcers said something like, "So we shouldn't bother watching?" He came back with, "It will still be fun to watch...and the Warriors will still win"

@TheSteinLine: With the All-Star break fast approaching, league sources say it’s increasingly possible Derrick Rose’s future won’t be resolved until after the break when teams resume practicing

@ShamsCharania: Sources: The Rockets plan to release guard Troy Williams to create roster space for Joe Johnson signing. Williams is expected to receive interest as free agent.

Jokic with a 30/15/17 triple double vs. the Bucks. Holy crap.

@mikecwright: Pop just said he'd be surprised if Kawhi returns this season.

More rumors of bad relationship between Kawahi and the Spurs. What the heck is going on? He's supposedly been cleared for a while now but hasn't wanted to come back.

The Spurs are on the brink of disaster. They basically lucked into Aldridge signing an extension as he wanted out this past summer. The problem with guys like Rick and Pop is that they alienate a lot of players. System coaches are basically a thing of the past, and it's tough to have to fit guys into it.

We're in the buddy-buddy team up stars age. Spurs don't have more than one superstar on their team, so I'm sure that plays a large part of it. Kawhi just can't do it himself with his injury issues.

Steph with 44 points on 19 shots vs. the Clips (only 8 free throws). Not many players can do that, and two of them are on the warriors.

If they truly are on bad terms (which I dont believe) there may be an opportunity to pull a Morey and get our Harden. Would require giving up DSJ though.

They would ship him east...and the Celtics could easily offer a better package around Brown, Lakers pick etc

Irving
Hayward
Leonard
Tatum
Horford

Classic Thibs team. How that guy still finds employment as an NBA head coach given his history of overexerting star players in beyond me. Butler was leading the league in MPG (while Shabazz, a capable backup, rotted on the bench).

Agreed. Not to mention he was running Butler into the ground in Chicago too. Thibs is a career killer. Last of the old school macho coaches. In basketball that is. A relic

@ShamsCharania: Jimmy Butler is expected to undergo surgery in coming days and could return within 4-to-6 weeks, league sources tell Yahoo. Final timetable will be set after procedure.

I'm too lazy to lookup the schedule, but does this potentially put him back in time for the playoffs?

Potentially, yes... Playoffs are about 6-7 weeks away.

Didn't think of it at the time, but Pachulia's "fall" on Russell Westbrook was super dirty because he's the guy that took out Kawhi in last year's playoffs.

Something should be done about that. This is the time & place where a guy like Jerry Stackhouse comes in & does what's needed. I actually hope someone sidelines Pachulia soon. No room in the game for that kinda b.s.

He should easily be suspended for a few games. It was incredibly blatant. He looked down before he "fell." The worst about the Warriors is scrubs like Nick Young, Zaza, and Javale sharing the success.

@ShamsCharania: Once Hawks buyout is complete, forward Ersan Ilyasova plans to work toward finalizing agreement with the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources tell Yahoo.

@ShamsCharania: Sources: Emeka Okafor is signing with New Orleans for the remainder of the season today. The former No. 2 pick has averaged 6.3 rebounds and two blocks in six games back in NBA since injuries sidelined him in 2013.

Possible summer FA signing?!

Good for him. Glad he's back and healthy(-ish).

‘Twas in jest, UD. I remember endless debates here about Okafor what seems like ages ago.

It's sad when you see a player drafted into the league, watch him play and then fade off into retirement. Makes you feel your age.

I remember really wanting us to go after Okafor about five years ago when he was set to be a free agent, but that was also right before he got the season-ending back injury. I think I was envisioning him as our long-term backup for Tyson.

@redrock_bball: Shabazz Muhammad agreed to a buyout with the Wolves and will try to sign with a playoff contender. He was on a playoff contender already, but Thibs, even with Butler out refused to play him. This is one of the issues I talk about when I talk about Thibs' bench use.

Dwight Howard is averaging 6 rebounds per game in his last 5. The guy is finished.
