If we could land DWest, we'd go from a good team to a great team... Seriously, eastern conference contenders in one swoop. Easily in the top 3, and in the top tier of the league.

Moose rumors still floating around. Sounds like Pistons want a grip in trade though.

The Pistons Pacers rumor is so stupid. Why would SVG trade an improving young big like Monroe for a low value commodity like Hibbert? Especially when he has Drummond, and he's one of the coaches who really used the strategy of using an SF as a full time stretch 4 in his system? Whoever made that up is an idiot.

One more note on that racist e-mail from other day, had to laugh at: “Raptors fans are ban waggon jerks who do not represent “My Canada."

As Ric Bucher of Bleacher Report spells out in his latest offering, Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson has been a standout performer for the team with little to no fanfare league-wide. Thompson found himself in the midst of potential Kevin Love trade talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves this offseason and while the Warriors missed out on landing Love, the discussion hasn’t left Thompson in a good mood:

Ask any GM or scout and they’ll tell you Thompson is one of the best two-way players in the game, yet he hasn’t sniffed either All-Star or All-Defensive team recognition. To make matters worse, teammate Andre Iguodala did receive All-Defensive first-team honors last season, even though injuries left him a shell of himself and forced the Warriors to give Thompson the assignments Iguodala was expected to fill. “Klay is a much better defender,” said one former Warriors assistant coach. “It’s not even close. It’s all based on reputation and stats. The truth is, Dre is always gambling on the weak side.”

Thompson handled all of that without complaint. The reward? A summer wondering if he would be dealt to the league’s moribund Minnesota outpost.

The Warriors not only dangled both him and Lee in talks with the Timberwolves, league and team sources say, but they apparently initiated the conversation. Various reports on the deal’s likelihood of going down bubbled for several weeks, and while GM Bob Myers declined to address the subject directly, he certainly didn’t discourage the notion that Thompson and Lee were available for the right price.

“Right now, I think it’s unlikely,” Myers told the San Francisco Chronicle at the time. “Right now, today. … But I will say this: If you asked me last year at this time would we be in a situation to grab an [Andre] Iguodala, I would have said the same thing.”

League sources also say they could’ve dealt Harrison Barnes to Orlando for Arron Afflalo in conjunction with the Minnesota deal, which would’ve given them a reasonable substitute for Thompson.

Eventually, they passed on everything because there wasn’t a strong consensus in the organization that they’d definitively be better. And when it became clear that Love would be headed to Cleveland instead of a Western Conference rival, such as the Houston Rockets, it made the need to roll the dice even less enticing.

Myers’ attempt to be as honest as possible is appreciated, but it has come with a price. While attempts to reach Lee or his representatives were unsuccessful, a source close to Thompson said the shooting guard is “pissed” that the Warriors legitimately considered moving him.

^^^ That cover doesn't look to bad. The EA Sports symbol should be in the corner though.

Good for Dame. He's a good player and person. Game will be terrible though probably like usual. I commend EA for keep on trying, but there's no competition anymore obviously.
