I know I'm like a week late on this but it's pretty silly that Simmons labeled Giannis a unicorn when he basically is a poor mans lebron.

It's also silly to debate whether someone is a unicorn I guess.
Two days later I get a text back that says I'm a basketball player and a businessman, not a Thundercat.

Yeah it's almost like he just made up some arbitrary categories for the sake of an controversial, entertaining and highly clickable article

My guess is the team gets the points and not the players.

thread title sucks. what if the GM of another team is perusing this board to get some intel on the Okafor for a high first + superstar player trade he's about to pull the trigger on and he sees this?? you're lucky Bryan doesn't kick your ass.

Gokafor sounds like the fusion of Goku and Okafor, if only we were so lucky!
Quick Google shows that GoGo is wrong with regards to the Kiwi and the Banana.

I like the title but agree w Youseff. The glass is both half empty and half full.

i like to make fun of jah but i dont really care that he's still here, in fact, it brings me some comfort. This is a freebie tank kind of year that's all about Embiid and eventually Simmons and it'll yield yet another top pick. Sure the frontcourt could look tidier, but let's be real, given the scope, there's no urgency because they're living in a space of luxury. And by seasons end, there will be a semblance of structure in place after they've seen what where and how they can get stuff out of guys like Ersan and Dario, and adding Noel or Richaun into the fold. Nothing needs to happen now, we're way past that. Just do this damn thing that Bryan has committed to.
