    How about some mouth wash... I hear Brandon Bass is doing well in the Chinese league.

    The difference being Conley has been a great a player in the past and Reggie Jackson has always been a scrub.

    But if the Jazz were really serious about going after somebody they could put in a waiver claim before he reaches the free agent market. So their claim of being active just seems disingenuous to me. I mean unless of course we’re still waiting for particular buyouts.

    I think in order for the jazz to sign some of these buy out candidates they have to pass through wavers because I think we are up against the cap. Once the player clears wavers they have to want to come here

    Clippers have a full cupboard, but they won't play that many deep in the playoffs.

    We really can't though... we'd need cap space or an exception... we'd also have to pay them the contract amount rather than the minimum.

    there is honestly like 2-3 buyout guys I'd even want so its no big deal imo. The trade deadline was our opportunity and it is gone.

    I suppose you are right that we couldn’t even afford the buyout price for most of these guys without going over the cap.

    I wouldn’t doubt that the only reason they signed him was to block the Lakers as I hear Collison is not coming out of retirement.

    Was a weird choice by him tbh. I think some of these guys might be able to boost FA value if they showed they were functional on a team like the Lakers. Jackson will get some run because Beverly has been nicked up and needs rest. Maybe Reggie just wants to take it easy or maybe they promised him a deal next year... strange choice on his part.

    Yes, you are right, and it needed to be pointed out.

    A scrub who average 13+4+3 in his career for which he spent near half of the time as a sub? Conley had a better career but he averaged 15+6+3 while being a starter for the majority of his career. The difference here isn't that great. Reggie Jackson at his prime was in the league’s top 10 PG category, where I'd also put Conley. Except Conley was able to outlast Jackson.

    Suns are officially the worst/craziest team in the NBA. They think they are going to grab the 8th seed. I mean all they got to do is climb up out of that 12th spot and pass up the Pelicans, Spurs, Blazers and Grizzlies. Ugh. Hopefully, the can figure out that they are not a playoff team yet before March 1st, and let Baynes go somewhere (Utah) and have a shot at something before his career is over.

    Any way of bringing Big Al out of retirement? I’ve heard that he can no longer break a bull’s neck with his bare arms, but chicken necks he can.

    I think if we make the WCF or make the second round and lose to the Lakers (but win a game or more) or lose to the Clips (and win two games or more), we’ve had a successful season.

    I mean, Lebron is gonna be 36 in December. How many more years can he play at such a high level?

    You don't want to play the wait it out game though... you wait out one awesome team or player and a new one forms. Warriors are dead... now you gets Lebron and the clips for a year or two... then the Mavs or Zion are ready to take over. Lakers and Clips are vulnerable/beatable... hell the stacked Warriors missed out on two championships they probably could have won.

    I think your assessment of the team was correct... we are a second round team hopefully. With some bracket/playoff luck we make a run like Portland... if Clips and Lakers are healthy I think both teams likely beat us. I think there are 3 real contenders... and like 5-6 Darkhorse teams... we'd be in the Darkhorse group.

    Yeah, I didn’t mean that way. Just saying like we’re really ****ing close to being elite. If we add a legit stretch 4 this off-season (and ****ing Udoh), I see no reason we can’t win it all over the next 3-4 seasons. Especially if Lebron is even older.
