Men's Basketball NBA 2019 - 2020

Recommended Posts

LA is bigger market than NO, and Pelicans never really became a popular franchise (there even was a talk of movng them to another city). Besides, it's not that easy to predict what will happen with the Lakers in the next few years, maybe the front office will be changed again.

In the day of social media & internet you don't have to play in a big market to be relevant anymore. Hell, Kawhi went up North even on a one-year rental. Toronto has had three meaningful players for 25 years and they drafted them all: V.Carter, McGrady & Bosh :p

 

Every team can issue 2 max free agents deals as well. The only thing that worked against Pelicans lately was the strenght of the Western Conference. Hell, even Clippers tried to swing for the fences, Dallas has had life around Nowitzki while back in the East even Nets did blow their chance but they actually had it few years back.

 

The only two doomed locations IMO are 1) Phoenix Suns because Arizona always struggles to attract big-time players & 2) Sacramento Kings because it's California taxes without the hot babes & beaches :lol:

Tell that to AD who obviously wants to go to the bigger market in LA, that's why he forced a trade. Kawhi won a title with Raptors and still isn't sure about staying. Big market still kills small market teams. That's why it's even bigger deal that the Knicks in the lackluster Eastern Conference can't do anything for a century it seems.

Yeah, but AD has been a massive disappointement as former #1 pick even with West being that much stronger in this decade. If an overrated guy like D.Lillard can lead Blazers to Conference finals then Davis' struggles in NOLA are even more disturbing. He might settle as #2 to LBJ and that would be a perfect role but as Lakers future leader I just don't see this happen tbh.

Labeling AD as a massive dissapointment is really really far fetched.

I look at team success too and NOLA has had none during his tenure there. If individual numbers were really that important, Russell Westbrook should have been labelled as the league MVP and nobody really thinks that way.

Kevin Durant is planning to sign with the Brooklyn Nets, league sources tell ESPN.
