  1. Was doing the same. Smart player.
  2. I'm mostly concerned with the lack of effort on defense from Trae. He did attempt a steal last night at least. I'd be in favor of Pierce sitting Young on occasion when his effort is poor.
  3. 61p, 13r, 16a from the Hawks' three draft picks...
  4. Love that he's contributing even when not shooting well.
  5. He's not eligible until next year. The Hawks should have a much better gauge on his talent by then.
  6. Normally, you don't worry about these kinds of things this early in the season, but we all know this year is about development and securing a high pick, so... I was thinking about a possible extension for Prince next offseason. There are several reasons why I think the Hawks might get good value from one: 1. Prince would be in his prime during the extended years. 2. He'll be coming off what is almost certainly going to a terrible year team-wise. 3. The Hawks have clearly committed to making him an real part of the offense, something most other teams wouldn't do. 4. If he chose to go the "wait a year and try RFA" route, he'd be hitting the market at the same time as the younger, more playoff-proven Jaylen Brown. 5. He comes from a desperately poor situation and probably would be a bit risk averse... Just thinking out loud. Feel free to mumble incoherently in response.
  7. I apologize. What I had in my mind didn't make it into my post. Based on what I actually typed, you're right. What I meant to type was CP3 is best playmaker among traditional PGs (thus, the comparison to Young). I have always held a separate category for the hybrid guys like Magic, LeBron, Simmons, and Penny. Magic and LeBron are both better playmakers than Paul. So is Harden, for that matter. That said, I sincerely believe CP3 is a better all-around playmaker than the traditional PGs on your list if you account for ability to make plays for oneself within the flow of the offense. Nash, I think, is right when he says he was too unselfish. He certainly had the ability. Kidd, if you'll recall, was an occasional liability earlier on in his career because of his poor perimeter shooting. Price, well, injuries. Small point about Stockton - compare his TO% to Paul's...that's a HUGE difference when talking "all-time great." That swings it in Paul's favor, IMHO. Paul, I believe, is the best combination of defensive playmaking, offensive distribution, intelligent decision-making, and versatile scoring ability. There's a reason his advanced numbers are "off the charts" good. Here's the B-R link in case anyone wants it: Best traditional PGs
  8. I personally think CP3 is the best playmaker in the history of the NBA. It might be a good idea to temper our expectations of Young just a bit.
  9. And should be officially over the cap now.
  10. Awww. You made this English teacher happy.
  11. I'm too tired to clean up the various off-topic posts here. So here's my compromise: I'm closing this thread because 90% of free agency is done.
  12. I guess I figured it was The German's job to do that.
  13. What a stupid play by Allen. Over/under on how many days until he's the most hated player in the NBA?
  14. It's probably the best reason to keep Schröder around longer - to push Trae in practice.
  15. Okay, I'll say it. I really don't like watching Trae play when he doesn't have the ball in his hands.
