Not giving Brunson the extension when he wanted it was a massive mistake. No argument here.

Is solid really a compliment? I see it as a backhanded one at best.

"He is the definition of solid." Jalen Brunson is a piece of the puzzle the Knicks have long needed: a real point guard. #TheVoidNBA 📼: https://t.co/YOw3bbOt3H pic.twitter.com/t1Soo8uEpf

Its because they dont' know how to describe him. He's not overly fast, he's not overly athletic....I think solid is how you'd describe guys like him who play low to the ground like they do. Like Kyle Lowry and Chris Paul.

Cuban should sell the team. Perpetual joke franchise if not for being blessed with Dirk and then Luka. They both deserve better. When Luka leaves in 2-3 years I won?t watch another second of Mavs or NBA ball. And I won?t blame him one bit for leaving.

McGee is a quality signing. We had to maybe overpay slightly and the 3rd year is?not good. Dude will be 38 or something. But he fills a need. Better rim protection and rebounding than Powell with some of the same rim running pnr game with Luka.

The Kings are a perpetual joke franchise. The Mavs just made the Western Conference Finals.

Losing Brunson sucks, don't get me wrong, but this seems like an extreme overreaction.

Maybe I'm a fool but I think Luka is made of the same things Dirk is made of and doesn't want to join up with a super team. OTTH I also wouldn't blame him if he did leave this organization is a mess.

I had written a much lengthier, more heated post but pulled back. In it I referenced the various scandals and other f?ups along the way of Cuban?s tenure. Even this Donnie Nelson business with his nephew and hush money (after the sexual harassment scandal) could still rear its ugly head. Losing Brunson hurts especially because they actually drafted well, finally! And then botched it beginning to end.

Is this their MLE? Solid player. Should replace part of what GP2 brought to them with better shooting.

Mavs supposedly "aggressively pursuing" a trade for Collin Sexton, but I can't find a real source on this. And I'm quite skeptical seeing as how an earlier report from Stein said that the Mavs weren't "expected to immediately pursue guards."

Great! The inefficient, even worse defensively, worse spot up shooting and less durable version of Jalen Brunson.

Mine too. Would?ve preferred him to McGee because at least there is upside with Jalen Smith. The lack of a market for him says something though. These teams have way more info about them as people and work ethic etc.

I mean he shot 47/38/85 just two years ago as a 21 year old.

*shrug* I'd gladly take him as long as we're buying low.

If ANT can take the next step and be the teams best player which he's on his way to be......T-Wolves may shock people. They improved defensively for sure.
Nah, teams will run circles around that poorly constructed roster. KAT and Gobert will get roasted by smaller lineups and played off the court. That team will be terrible defensively.
