Soooooo..........as far as the top free agents, Raptors get nothing, Boston picks up both O.J Mayo and Hibbert and Nash re-signs in Phoenix.

I don't see Indiana allowing Hibbert to leave. It doesn't make any sense for Indiana.

Eric Gordon signing with Indiana also doesn't make any sense unless Granger is dealt.

Beasley to GS doesn't make any sense at all since the Warriors have Lee at PF and a host of 3-point shooting swingmen.

Andre Miller is a bad fit in Miami, who need a PG that can shoot the 3, facilitate, and defend. Miller isn't a good perimeter shooter.

I could definitely see Larry Legend trying to pawn Granger off to make room for Paul George at his natural position and to slot Eric Gordon in at the 2. Not too sure where they could send Granger, though. Clippers?

That was a poor article in my opinion. Offered very little analysis and barely backed up his thoughts.

Yeah. Bleacher Report is frequently pure shit. It's like user generated content. Pretty much anybody could write for them. I don't think they have any method of discriminating who they allow to write.

I mean, if you look carefully, you'll even find factual errors. For example, Barbosa is an expiring, so his contract should not factor into whether or not the Pacers re-sign Hibbert.

It's actually one of the few predictions about player movement that has some legitimacy, at least it did before the playoffs. A number of legit reporters wrote that Gordon and his agent were interested in him going to Indiana. This article is just piggybacking off those rumours, I suspect.

Yes, anyone can write for them. They only insist on a good photo and a headline that is straightforward like a newspaper rather than a blog, so everything looks professional. It's a bit of make-believe for adults.

Why is that funny?

If the series against the Lakers showed one thing it's that if McGee has his head on straight he can be a FORCE down low on both ends. If he can build on what he did in that series he could be one of the best C's in the league before long.

+1

McGee would be a center a lot of teams would love to have if he's mentally there. He's got the athleticism and talent. He would argueably be a top 5 one, top 10 no doubt.

Any top 10 C or PG will become very valuable because high level play at those positions is scarce. That's right, JV. Make us proud.

If there is one thing that Miami might be learning right now , it's that if they had Wade, Bron and a great centre instead of Bosh, they might be unstoppable for years.
