Lowery's comment was he wants to go somewhere to win a ring. Don't think that's us.

On Monday, he told reporters that his main consideration in choosing where to sign will be his ability to win a championship.

"I want a ring," he said. "That's all that drives me. I want to just get better, I want to have fun, I want to win a ring. I want to make sure my family is happy. That's all I've thought about right now."

Asked if he believed he could get that ring with the Raptors, Lowry said, according to the Star: "I think I can do that anywhere I play. That's just how confident I am."

He'd have to downgrade what he wants money-wise, then
I confess that I have never seen Markelle Fultz play a basketball game and I was not at his 76ers workout Saturday in Camden

Why would we give 31 year old Lowry $152m over 4 years! That is the anti-Hinke contract. No thanks.

Ah, but he didn't say it had to be in 2018

In his "lottery karma" article Simmons asked if you could name 7 hornets. I named 7 but that included the wrong plumlee. Probably doesn't bode well for them.
Two days later I get a text back that says I'm a basketball player and a businessman, not a Thundercat.

I guess I appreciate the honesty but I'm not sure why Jalen is so open about intentionally injuring Kobe. Not saying he is proud of it and I like him but it almost seems like he is.

Okafor is probably the best 3rd string center in the league, right?

next year's first rounder for Russell straight-up makes some sense

This, yes. Top 3 protected though.

The problem with trading the Lakers their pick back for Russell is they are basically betting against themselves. You know the delusional Laker folks are having Showtime dreams with Lonzo at the helm thus they will think their pick won't be a high lottery pick again next year... even though it will
