    Lebron carried that whole team last year. Without Lebron last year they wouldn't have gotten to the Finals last year. Wade barely played during the season and disappeared in the finals. Bosh isn't a low post presence. They will be decent and make the playoffs but won't make it far. They are a shell of their former selves. Granger, Wade, and Deng are injury prone

    So right now we have three deadly 3 point shooters on the bench plus Watson who isn't too shabby himself. Use them Frank!

    My hope is that Rudez is just a deadly shooter this year, gets bigger and stronger, and then can take over the back-up PF spot from Scola/Copeland the next year.
    I think no matter what, Rudez isn't a PF. The guy is a wing player flat out. I think he would be best fit as PG's backup or when Rudez is on the court move PG over to SG

    And now the Hornets have moved Scotty Hopson to NO. I wonder if NO wants him as a player or needs the unguaranteed contract to move in a deal.


    Unguaranteed Salary contracts seem to have a lot of value these days.

    I wouldn't mind a Watson/Miles/Rudez/Copeland/Mahinmi bench. We can at least shoot! Though that leaves Solo out, who may be the back-up 3 instead of Rudez. That should be an interesting training camp battle.

    Right now, I agree with you, he is definitely a wing player. But if he can add 20-30 pounds in the next year and get up to 6-10 225-235 then I think he can be a PF, and he could be a big match-up problem with his shooting and dribbling ability, but hey, I trust Larry on this.

    I will say, I have been researching a bit on Rudez, and I am really starting to like the addition.

    Dallas was Lance's chance it seemed to possibly get a 3/36 or something like that, but if they get Parsons, that isn't happening, unless they move salary back to Houston which I doubt.

    Almost if I'm Lance, I take a 3 or 4 year deal, with a player option after year 1 and/or 2 and see if he can try again in the next summers to really cash in. I think he's coming back to the Pacers in some way, shape or form for next season.

    These guys have professionals who can tell them what to eat and how use professional weight lifting programs? Yes, I think he easily can. Hell, a Colts player just added 20 pounds in 6 months.

    Hmmm, didn't everyone say this wasn't possible?


    If I were the Mavs, I wouldn't do a S&T unless the Mavs got a real asset back in return. Giving the Rockets a HUGE TPE is only going to get a quality Asset back in return to help them between now and the 2015-2016 offseason. IMHO...a S&T only helps the Rockets....I see no reason to give them any help especially if Cuban doesn't like that the Rockets contacted Dirk and reportedly offered him a MAX offer.

    I agree. I definitely see Lance trying to work in an option after a year or two to "sweeten" the deal.

    I still think probably Cope and possibly Ian will be traded in moves if Lance comes back. I see it being more like: Watson/Miles/Hill/Scola/LaVoy with Rudez probably being the Cope replacement.

    How is the East getting better? The best player went from a better team to a worse team. I have to see Derrick Rose play a full season before I believe in the Bulls, Pierce is a marginal upgrade from a motivated Ariza, the Raptors and Hawks and Nets didn't really do anything.

    Added Miles, Rudez, and re-signed Allen. While still possibly getting Stephenson back, what are you complaining about?

    I don't know what that means....even if **** "gets real" there was nothing the Pacers do besides trading guys that most the league didn't want in Hill or Hibbert, or trade a good guy that CHOSE Indiana as a free-agent in West.

    When keeping it real goes wrong...

    If he was he fooled me. I mean it isn't like they are going to be a 20 win team or something.
    I think people are under-rating the Heat and Pat Riley.

    LeBron is not replaceable, but look at the talent on that team...even without LeBron. Ignoring LeBron, a "big three" including Deng, Bosh and Wade would normally cement that team as a potential contender. Luol Deng is better than any Pacer except Paul George. Bosh is still very much playing like the all-star that he is. If Wade stays relatively healthy, they are going to be dangerous. If Granger rebounds from his injury, he may be really dangerous. He could bring toughness and great shooting. Haslem is a solid PF. Chalmers is a decent PG, assuming he returns. Norris Cole is a decent backup PG. No LeBron but that team is every bit as talented as any team in the east if things fall into place for them. Everything depends on Wade and Granger's health.
