    All Star Saturday was crazy this year! Between KAT winning the Skills Challenge, another ridiculous 3pt Contest, and of course the Perfect Dunk Off!

    Shame they couldn't get 200 in Sunday.

    That under the legs dunk by Gordon is one of the best dunks I've ever seen

    Ugh, that botched Motiejunas trade with the Pistons was such a shitshow. I was wishing Houston hadn't traded him in the first place, now I'm still wishing that, and really worried about his back. If he does do fine the rest of the year, I doubt he'd want to resign after the trade attempt. Jeeeezus, that blew up in the Rockets' faces.

    Wow! Finally someone is posting here! It is so sad the season ended the way it was, and it is also sad to see thread becomes so dead... anyway, draft night was great, and there were a few interesting trades and rumors... hopefully more people would post here in the upcoming season.

    Finals were great, I thought. Good for Cleveland.

    I'll be watching a bunch of Knicks games this year to see Derrick Rose. I'll maybe buy a jersey, but I think I'll get the D Rose 7 in a more neutral colour than blue and orange.

    A lot of fun teams this year, with the Timberwolves hopeful ascension, and hopefully Milwaukee will get it together with Giannis, too.

    If healthy, D-Rose and the Knicks actually ain't that bad this coming season... with D-Rose, Melo, Porzingis as core... hey, disagree all you want, but I think D12 may be a good fit to the Knicks.

    With Jim Buss still in charge, the Lakers are like the Rodney Dangerfield in basketball... we don't get no respect, nobody wants to come, stars don't even want to meet with us... lol!

    Hey, at least the Lakers got Mozgov! Looks like Joakim Noah is heading to the Knicks as well. Melo didn't go to the Bulls, so the Bulls are going to Melo.

    Reports are saying KD is "blown away" by the Clippers after their 4-hour meeting... KD, please, anywhere but the Clippers!

    I have a confession... I'm a Clippers fan. Frankly, I just want KD to go somewhere other than OKC. Not because KD and Westbrook are a formidable combo, but just for a change. Though, preferably not Spurs or Warriors.

    Dude is going to get PAID after this contract is up. Can't wait to see how Golden state runs their offense now, but basically you will have a star on the floor at all times.

    Also if the 1 and 1 is true then Curry and Durant will have to figure out what to do next summer in order stay together. Both are going to want a max deal.

    It's apparently a $54.3M deal, with a player option for the second year.

    I can understand the hate for KD, yet I also think it is kind of unfair to him. He is a smart guy, and money ain't a factor in his decision. So my guess is, he either knows deep down RW won't extend or due to that and could be traded by the deadline. What if RW got traded and he is the only one left? Or, he finally realizes the way OKC handles player personnel, his team won't get much better than last year. IMO, so by signing with the Dubs, he gives himself a great chance to win and grow.
