Kemba Walker already stated he would take less than a max to build around in Charlotte.............surely he'd take less than a max to play with LeBron and AD?
Yep.

No interest in the draft, or the NBA. Maybe because I’m a Knicks fan.

No doubt. I didn't expect my boy PG to win either since he dropped toward the end of the season with his injuries, but he still put up great numbers.

I really like the young combo of Giannis and Spicy P.

But the, "Give the ball to Giannis and dunk, or kick out if they double team," offense really needs tweaked. They need more off-the-ball movement.

Or Giannis could just develop a jump shot outside of 8-10 feet

Even then, it would still just be drive to the paint and settle for short jumper instead of trying to get to the rim.

That was the thing that stood out most to me during the playoffs. Giannis drives and you literally have 4 guys just standing there waiting to see if they will get passed to.

They need run actual plays and set down screens, where maybe the still let Giannis drive, but the screen sets up their shooters for more open looks or more opportunities to move the ball to beat the defense.

Even so...for Ujiri to end up 4th in voting? Don't agree with that at all.

We've (Rockets) crashed and burned again this free agency period

Missed out on a lot of good people for various reasons. The league seems a lot more even now though, should make for a little more interesting season/playoffs.

Just like OKC. It's hard to do anything when you're loaded down with bad contracts.

A lot of the "speculation" around Houston going after Jimmy Butler and stuff like that was completely bogus from the beginning. Although I am surprised to see him go to Miami.

Depends on where kawhi ends up
Clippers or raptors yeah I'd agree that there's more parity
If he joins LeBron then it's pretty much over and there's a new superteam

Very true with the contracts. I was so mad when Paul signed his deal. He claimed he came here to win a ring and then signed a max contract that essentially priced us out of ever getting a third guy to help get that ring.

Agreed yeah. Jimmy is a Houston guy (went to high school 10 minutes from me and we have a lot of mutual friends) but I never expected him to actually come to the Rockets. He wants to be the go-to guy and he wouldn't be that here with Harden and Paul.

Miami was definitely a random choice because he won't win anything there. So I guess he went for a destination city?

True, if he ends up with the Lakers then yeah they'll be a big problem for everybody.

God I hope that doesn't happen
