Don't worry, everyone; Dwane Casey says all this team needs is to increase its "compete level". Forget about pick and roll defense or offensive sets; just compete harder, or something.

I actually agree that as constructed, DeMar DeRozan is the best player on this team at the moment. The problem is that this team is average at best, poorly constructed and plays like an NBA team from...

Wholly unsurprised.

When the jump shots and threes stop falling and the game gets close, we have no Plan B (or C, or D, or...). Bulls tightened it up, we couldn't defend and start desperately...

That's unbelievable.

That's not bad coaching, that is criminally bad coaching.

I can't watch this crap anymore, guys. I can't. Somebody needs to get fired when Lou Williams is launching 27 footers to decide games.

DeMar drove to the rim more which was good to see, but I can't tell you how tired of hearing Matt or Jack say "difficult look" or "forced into a tough shot" every time DeRozan takes a horrible...

I am tired of this town falling in love with mediocre players with "heart".

I'm all about Terrence Jones. I would be willing to overpay for him and do whatever it takes to pry him away from Houston.

GS will match any offer on Green. He's going to be the DPOY.

I'd like Masai to try to pry Thad Young away from the Wolves.

He's a free agent next year, so he could probably be had for not all that much.

Other than that, I'd target someone like Lavoy Allen...

Jonas and NYK's 2016 for DeMarcus Cousins, though Sacramento will likely hold him to the bitter end. I'd toss in our 2015 or 16 first, too.
