Giannis signs supermax, stays with Bucks for 5 years.
Back in my days, people with more posts had priority. Unfortunately I got this wrong, my post number is inflated a bit. At least %60 of my replies are non-sense, I had bad English + lack of comprehension back then. Colorful username is from my NBA modding days. Sorry everyone.

Shit, I totally forgot the Rockets have Boogie now... he should stick around. I like the new big 3.


Plus, to get Harden, it'll cost you a superstar player, some pieces and draft picks. Miami or Brooklyn would be insane to do that.

There goes everyone's speculation. Obviously he could still move on via a trade in the interim, but either the talk of him having one foot out the door was unfounded, or he likes the moves the Bucks have made. Either way, he's not going to test free agency anytime soon.

I was so relieved to hear this. Now it'll shut up all these 20 to 30 year old Knick fans(on social media) who kept fantasizing about him coming to NY.

Perhaps it's because I can never see big name free agents coming to the Bulls anyway, but I'm happy for the Bucks as well. It's also refreshing to see stars like Lillard and Giannis have an interest in sticking with one team, and in smaller markets at that. I hope that loyalty is repaid, and can someday pay off.

Report: Russell Westbrook 'appalled' by Rockets team culture, which revolves around James Harden

No way Pat Riley would tolerate this.

Chris Paul has expressed similar sentiments. Harden's definitely the problem.

Yep, the Rockets created that situation, and it got out of control.

Still, it almost worked if not for Paul's injury.

Talent can sometimes overcome some level of dysfunction, but it has to be the perfect storm where the talent and coaching is good enough. Harden's great, but he's not that great. D'Antoni is hardly a failure of a coach, but he's not one of the all-time chessmasters.

You've always felt that way Andrew, but as I've said many times, Bulls have some nice young talent....more than NY. It's just a matter of putting it together....they can be like Miami.

Oh I agree, I'm feeling quite positive about LaVine in particular. They have historically struck out in free agency though, or had to settle for the second tier names.
