Demarre is a net negative and practically useless these days. If you think he's going to improve your odds of making the playoffs, I'm warning you to temper your excitement. There's a reason Masai is giving up assets to have you take him off our hands.

I agree he's been brutally bad, both stat-wise and eye test-wise. But to be fair he has been hurt most of the last couple seasons, so maybe he can give us 20 solid mpg. He can be a valuable asset for a team if he get over his injury woes.

You're an idiot.

If you need 10-1 odds on a binary bet, then you don't think they will make the playoffs either dummy.

I like your level headedness as a poster. For your sake, I hope he can produce for you guys. He's been tough to watch at times but there has to be something left in his tank.

Haha, I try. It's been awhile since we've had anything to root for with our on-court product. We've put either terrible or unlikable teams on the court for each of the last 10 years. The Nets should be grateful some of us have stuck with them.

Every Raps game I've watched in the past two seasons, it seemed like Carroll was either making a dumb play or missing a wide open wing/corner 3. All totally uncharacteristic of what I'd seen from him in past years. It's like I was watching a totally different player. Hopefully things change, but if not he can ride the bench with Timofey, as far as I care.

Lin has turned trash players everywhere he has gone into studs who get massive contracts.

Any shooter who can stretch the floor who plays D is a perfect fit for Lin.

has Giannis Antetokounmpo changed team?

since the Nets most likely won't sign George Karl to run their front office

they get Frank Vogel, and maybe past this year they make the playoff


and where should Spoelstra coach after his Miami stint?

probably any team with 1-2 all star with less than 6 years of league experience would deem him as a great fit

He still has a point. You're out here calling people idiots but at the same time putting the odds at 10:1 or a 10% chance it actually happens.
