Maybe Carmelo! Young....er than Paul Pierce. Ifs almost certain Melo is leaving. That is why Kerr dissed the job. Chris Paul JJ Reddick Carmelo Anthony Blake Griffin Deandre Jordan/maybe Tyson Chandler Darren Collison Crawford - maybe Barnes Odom Brand Whew! I'd love to see this haha ....

I wouldn't mind Josh McRoberts or Jordan Hill. McBob was actually solid in Charlotte, knows how to move without the basketball, a decent rebounder, and decent facilitator. Jordan Hill would be an energy guy who is a strong rebounder. ....

He had a hell of a year. I wouldn't put money on him repeating it. Pierce or Marion would be other similar options, but, you know, from from 10 years ago. One of those guys splitting minutes and mentoring a young guy with the same skillset seems to be the way to go. I'm not sure Reggie's up to the....

I have a really good feeling that the Clippers will sign Melo or Ariza. The Cap space was increased just a little bit. Didn't Barnes play for Phil? Maybe Phil wants Barnes is Melo is leaving. We'd have to get rid of a lot of salary , but from what I am hearing... Davis, Collison, and Granger may very well OPT IN instead of Out and becoming Free Agents. Do we trade Collison to Knicks? I mean I would have been....

Jordan Hill off the bench would be PERFECT. He's a energy guy who defends and grabs boards. That's what we need. I do NOT want Melo here. This team is close. Bringing him here means we are overhauling our roster. And we obviously need to upgrade the SF position. This league is filled with great wing players. We need someone who can defend them and provide some more scoring at this position. Ariza would be nice but he's not THAT much of....

How are the Thunder better without Westbrook when he was the MVP of the series and put up Oscar Robertson type numbers in a tougher era? Westbrook dominated us and his faults were far less than his gain. Paul said one game in a win why he didn't look for his as often because he was the PG. Well Westbrook....

With all the confidence talk its not hard to not see him as a consistent double-double guy going forward because he played 35mpg on average this season. I'm sure it helped having a coach not trying to trade you and believeing but at the end of the day confidence....

Yeah, but his value is almost all in the regular season where he can get free for dunks and not be a victim of Hack-A-DJ. We just need a defensive center with a serviceable postgame (DJ has no offensive game whatsoever). Heat get by with no center, Thunder get by with no....

We need length, length, length. Our problem with OKC is they play only three guys under 6'7, (one of them is Derek Fisher who barely plays) and they get every loose ball and contest so many shots. As much as I hate him, we need a seven footer like Adams who can protect the paint off the bench. ....

DJ & Ariza >>>>> Melo. We'd probably still be a really good team with just Melo, Blake and CP, but we would be by far the best defensive team in the league if we kept DJ and added Ariza. Defense wins Championships and maybe if we had a player that could've kept RW or KD in check we wouldn't have had to have a game....

Out of all the people you just mentioned I think I'd only take Marc Gasol and Cousins over DeAndre. DJ is the best defensive Center in the league, he just ran into a brick wall in Kendrick Perkins who throughout his whole career has been a Center neutralizer. The Thunder was just....

The free throw argument is weak because we won the first round with GSW hacking.
We beat GSW by the slimmest of margins, with home court, and no Andrew Bogut. DJ was playing against guys half his size... He doesn't play well against real centers. DJ was the 9th scoring big this post season with the lowest amount of touches. You feel comfortable giving him touches? Sounds like a disaster to me. He makes an awful lot of money....

For next year, we don't need more talent, we need more calls. On a level playing field, we can contend with OKC, San Antonio, and Miami. Are we favorites? Probably not, but we can contend with them. This league is about "respect" and "paying your dues". Every superstar is in the referees' ears all game long. Griffin has an awful relationship with the officials, they despise him. It's gotten better this year, but they still....
