the original article is not in your quote, so I read it as a response to the trade whoever it was posted involving Demar and Amir for him.

My bad.

Misinterpretation or not, it was a stupid remark.

Yes, disregarding and disrespecting different opinions and viewpoints by pinning labels such as "Demar homer" on them is unnecessary and uncalled for. Glad to see you own up to it.

Why the hell would someone need you to ask for their opinion on a pubic messageboard? Man, you throw shit out there, and then sulk when people respond.

I didn't insult. And I am not sulking at all.

In fact I expect nothing less from the like of those two with whom I responded to.

Calling someone a homer, and calling someone stupid are two distinctly different things. And I corrected myself in response to LOG in regards to the original post to which I claimed him to be a demar homer, which in fact is a very honest narrative in response to what i had originally quoted. I did not attack him nor was there any negative intent towards him in the post meant.

Now the sort of comment from the other is nothing new for him, he has been that way for years.

We get offense & defense out of PP & Amir.

Love 26ppg 12rpg 5apg .5bpg .8spg

PP & Amir 19ppg 12rpg 2apg 1.7bpg 1spg

We are giving up way too much when we almost cover the distance with the two PF's we already have at less than half the price of Love.

Love has already stated he wants to play in NY or LA for that matter.


I say no thank you!!!

PP+Amir do that in a combined 52 minutes per game. Love does it in 36.

Less than half the price? Love costs 15M. Amir is 7M, PP will be about 5M, maybe as low as 4M if you are really lucky. Way above half the price.

Love doesn't want to play here. And plays 0 defense.

In my opinion, the core needs to be matured more, added to and improved. I suppose a leading core of Lowry, Demar and Love could be added to also, but we could be stuck with new deficiencies.

I'd love to see this team with a bit more seasoning and a stud 2-way player acquired at SF with the current wasted cap space.


Lowry/Vasquez
DD/Ross/vet
studly SF not named Rudy Gay/Ross/vet
Amir/PP
JV/vet big


There is only one more year for Hayes, Fields, TH, Camby to come off. $22 mil. And at that point, you have to feel more comfortable with JV and Ross going into year 4.

No offence but that's thinking way to optimistically. You will need to give up assets in order to acquire a big one regardless of cap pace. Not to mention a lot can happen from today till free agency to sway the team in a different direction be it for better or worse..

Btw what's the free agency crop like the year after. Durant is a long shot but what other study forwards are available that won't break the bank

Not really. Nice to have, but I'm not talking about a LeBron or KD. I'm thinking more of the level of what we thought Turk was i.e $10/12 mil level, but who gives a care. And yes, a lot can happen but one of the few tips from MU is that they are going hard after their own guys from the open of free agency.

love is just like bosh, a teriffic 3rd player on a good team, but if he's your best player, you're not going anywhere. I'd be ok with getting him if the plan is to use his star power to attract somebody like durant down the road.

but, as a trade, we'd have to give up a shitload of assets and almost certainly the team will regress in the short run and toronto is about as attractive as minesotta. I didn't see any stars lining up to join love there, so I really doubt things will change here. Assuming that love even wants to sign an extension here, we're basically just as good as the wolves.

Our biggest weakness is not front court - it's the wings, specifically defence, ball-handling and shot creation. Considering how the league's rules favor wing players, that's the area that must be addressed and trading for Love is doing the opposite, as some wing assets would likely need to be used to get him.

The first point may be true, in which case that would become apparent in negotiations for an extend and trade, so that's nothing we need to consider when suggesting trade options.

The second is untrue. He's a somewhat below average defender, certainly no worse than DD, and is elite offensively and rebounding wise to make up for it.
