    It worked great for Barkley...he just knew how to use it.

    That's why I think it makes sense to try developing him. If he was just continuing to be a big soft stiff from age 9, I'd be less enthusiastic about the potential.

    I am not concerned with the guys you mentioned.......Kanter plus Williams/Theis/Poirier will be fine against the majority of the teams I mentioned......and a team like Philly I believe will not be able to switch fast enough to handle smaller teams.......more will be dependent on 3pt shooting by the C's

    Kahwi Leonard and Paul George are snakes. I hate the Clippers. Anyone who lives in LA knows how annoying they are. And their fans....are really annoying.

    Big win for Boston for Leonard screwing the Raptors. Also picking up Walker. Westbrook possibility getting trading to the East would be good for the NBA. Both conferences need more balance.

    And the media absolutely botched the Leonard sweepstakes. Lots of irresponsible reporting....as usual.

    I am always jealous of you Patsfans that run across Pats players in bars and other venues in Boston. Well, here is my one chance to name drop ;). I live in SouthEast Birmingham Alabama and after his NBA retirement Barkley has shown up in my part of town frequently, holding court at local bars (he is a real charmer, and the ladies are dazzled by him, as you might expect) and I saw him at my gym a couple of times maybe 10-15 years ago. He had been on TNT a number of years, but it was before he lost weight.

    Seeing him in person at the gym, he isn't that tall, but he was simply one big, super-strong dude. I was stunned by just how much weight he could lift. I thought: "this is what a former professional athlete who is "out of shape" (air quotes intended) is like??" He simply looked like the strongest person I had ever seen.

    So: Barkley might have had a big butt, but it was made of granite, he was really a very unusual, one of a kind NBA player.

    Barkley was a physical freak. Played at 280 and had a 38in vertical.

    Westbrook to Houston for Chris Paul and picks. Two bad contracts but I gotta say I like what OKC got in return picks wise by blowing up their current core.

    This is a terrible trade for the Thunder. Paul will be useless as he won't put any effort into a rebuilding team. The draft picks are worthless, will be in the 20's and the right to swap picks is laughable. The only hope for the Thunder is if they can flip Paul at the trade deadline.

    Edit - The draft picks are in 2024 and 2026. Totally worthless

    He also is known to hang out in my town outside of Philly as his wife is from here. He has a local restaurant that he frequents and people give him his space as he is a local.......

    And Paul can, at least theoretically, still be dealt for more assets.

    OKC is doing Russ a solid by sending him to a contender. Once George made his intentions known they needed to blow it up. Their only option of trading him was most likely moving him for another bad contract (CP3). And it’s way too early to tell if those picks turn into anything as we don’t know what Houston turns into 4 years from now.

    OKC has done pretty damn well for themselves here with their trades. 7 combined first rounders plus their own (which will be high because they should stink.)

    Agree that they did Russ a solid, but they screwed the team and the fans. With Russ they has a chance to compete every night. OKC fans like the grittiness of Russ. I doubt if Paul does nothing but collect a paycheck, can't see him wanting to play/put out any effort for a rebuilding team that will be years away.

    I read some rumors of the thunder buying out Paul. He will end up with the lakers. Rondo and Paul on the same team.

    Well, it ain't a winner for Houston. The ensuing trainwreck as Harden and Westbrook strangle each other on the court should be amusing though.

    R Williams is showing well tonight, Summer league and all, hoping for a 2nd year leap. Valuable piece IMO.

    Imagine being a Thunder fan. All of the sudden Westbrook and George are gone.

    I'm not thrilled with 7 first round picks all past pick20. Look at the Celtics. A bunch of non-top10 draft picks is hugely overrated in my opinion.
