    2006 Miami Heat were a super team? Cause all I know is Wade carried them on his back. Only other star was Shaq and he didn't even play that well in the finals. 2011 Dallas Mavericks were a super team? Only star on that team was Dirk. U must not kno what super team is. 2010-2014 Miami Heat were a super team. 2008 Celtics were a super team
    I love people that speak twitter even when there's no character limit.

    Dallas had the deepest roster in the league in 2011. Miami in 2006 had 2 of the NBA's top 5 players plus hall of famers gary payton and alonzo mourning.

    But no, they're no kevin Love and Kyrie Irving. Those are "super-team" players...

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    So how does that work, if multiple teams attempt to claim him off waivers? Does he go to the first team to make the claim? highest bidder? does he get to choose?

    I don't recall the Pacers claiming anyone off waivers (at least not recently), so I'm not familiar with the procedure.
    I'm almost positive it goes by last season's record, worst to best. Which would hurt the Pacers.

    There is, but the pick counts as $0 for trade purposes if they're unsigned. Once Wiggins signs, he counts as full salary, but can't get traded for 30 days.

    just about every team that's ever won at title is a super team. get over that stupid narrative.
    This gets back to the whole "Built not Bought" theme that the Pacers were pushing last season. LeBron will be one of the greatest Basketball Players of all time and will likely win more Championships for the next 8+ seasons....but I will always look at his legacy differently than Bird's, Magic's or MJ's legacy.

    Minnesota is being Minnesota. You've got an offer you can't refuse. The longer you wait the more time the Cavs have to sober up and realize exactly how much they're giving up and pull some of it back off the table.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    There's just no point in Cleveland trading Wiggins for Love right now unless another team is on the verge of acquiring him. Start the season with Wiggins, see what you have in him, and then knock on the door for Love as Minny gets increasingly anxious about the prospect of losing him for nothing. Love is obviously a very good player, but that's just too high of a price to pay right now.

    I would include Wiggins, but if I did Minny would not get another pick from me. And I probably wouldn't punt on Bennett yet either.

    The dude always want Indiana teams to lose. Some fan he is.

    Warren Central seriously needs to disown him. He's becoming a stain on them.

    I don't know if that means there are still improvements in the works or if it means that they expect the Pacers to do well with the current roster.

    Even more hilarious to me is that I read somewhere that Minnesota values K Thompson over wiggins at this point. Say wha? You can't build your franchise around K Thompson and David Lee. Anybody think K Thompson's success if because he has one of the more dynamic scores as his backcourt partner....Steph Curry?

    Minnesota is scurred of success.

    Well if you look at all the bigs we have on the roster now. You can pretty much count on Scola's non guaranteed contract as sweetner in any deal. Larry is collecting bigs who can shoot.

    I love Curry, but you are seriously under-rating K Thompson.
