    Ugh, such high hopes after a blistering start, but the losing streak is 6 in a row now and AD is already on the shelf. Hate to say it, he's soft. Seems like he's just biding his time so he can pull a Chris Paul and leave.

    Man, gotta agree. I hope not though. I think if they get healthy, we’ll feel differently. Those first 4 games they looked unstoppable. Elbow injuries are a bitch, too, and ADs didn’t look himself shooting the other night. Didn’t see game since. When he gets healthy, and EP gets back, look out.

    Something doesn’t feel right with Pels. I think the trade talk with AD has the team not playing to expectation. They feel like a team in limbo just waiting for their best player to leave. Sucks.

    AD continues to dominate while Holliday and Randle are playing well. The rest of the supporting cast sucks. Mirotic can contribute if he gets healthy.

    It seems the culture in basketball is to join forces and get as many championships as easy as you can. Nobody wants to build with the team and grind through it and earn it the hard way. Small market teams have little chance.

    Unless they have a Tim Duncan.

    The only reason a small market team like S.A. was relevant for as long as they were. Sure Pop is the best in the bizz but if Duncan doesn't take less money they don't have the rings that they do.

    And the Admiral. Cleveland is a small market too. LeBron is really wanting Anthony Davis. Be cool if AD would tell him to come play with him in small market New Orleans.

    LBJ is desperate for another superstar to help him get another ring. But if you're Anthony Davis, Kawi Leonard or Kevin Durant why would you. Would you want to be Robin to Batman LeBron or would it be about your own legacy?

    LeBron is a whiny piece of shit who should be honored to shine MJ's Air Jordans. He just said that the NFL owners have a slave mentality. How many slaves got paid millions and millions of dollars to pick cotton?

    But, that’s the thing, AD is gonna leave for a lot less money. Now,160 mil (FA money, presumably from the Lakers) vs 230 mil (max option only the Pels can give him), or whatever the amounts are, is still a lot of money, but he’s considering it, and likely has already decided. So, he’d be leaving a small market for a larger one for less money. Crazy. Of course, we’ll end up trading him (most likely to the Celtics) before he just leaves, and from a trade he may get more. And, I’m assuming, his marketability is greater there and the money generated from that more than makes up the difference.
