About to read all my prognostications in 21/22 thread.

Are 76’ers going to waste another year of prime Embiid?

Will muh dubs repeat? Where will Durant go? Is Suns window rapidly closing?

Boston? Kyrie? NBA got dat drama

^^u rite

^i admittedly don’t know whats going on with that situation, I figured he didn’t want to play with Kyrie and when Kyrie I guess didn’t get his deal but accepted his one year deal(assuring he’d be back), Durant was like F that and requested out. Or maybe Durant just wanted to go to a stacked team idk

Brooklyn isn't going to trade him unless they get a great deal. And if Rudy Gobert is worth 4 1st round picks, nobody is gonna give the Nets what they probably want.

Gobert / Ainge screwed up the trade market this offseason. Wondering what the Knicks will end up giving up for Mitchell.

Yeah that trade was pretty ridiculous and I have no clue if it's going to work out, although I kinda doubt it.

As for the OP's questions:

1. Probably
2. Maybe
3. Nowhere
4. Probably
5. No
6. I take back all the mean things I said about Lebron

Aside from Stockton, has a highly drafted Gonzaga player ever really flourished in the NBA? I couldn't think of a single one, so I actually Googled and the only names that popped up were Domantas Sabonis and Kelly Olynyk- not exactly household names. How many one seeds have the Zags earned this century in the NCAA tourney again?

Fraudulent organization. Change my mind.

Gonzaga basketball’s NCAA seeding is fraudulent because they don’t produce a lot of top end nba talent? What a weird argument.

Yeah I think they probably were deserving. Idk I don’t remember every season.

I understand the argument but I also think it’s hard to keep them off the 1 line in recent years.

I mostly just disagree that their lack of elite NBA talent means that their college team was overrated or undeserving. I think those are separate things.

They made two finals what a weird take

In one they were maybe a terrible missed out of bounds call from winning (or a way better chance of winning anyway)

The “Gonzaga is overrated” takes had some validity earlier in the 2000s. In recent years, i think they’ve kinda put that to bed.

Oic. Makes sense. Stop caring/watching college hoops during COIVD except for this past year for a while since State has been so bad. But, apparently TGL is just being a gaping gatekeeping asshole about the NBA and NCAA basketball fandom, as always.

Glad I cleared everything up.

I had to figure out what you meant about Gonzaga never winning an NBA championship, but I eventually did. I'm sure you can figure out why I might not have understood if you think carefully, since you know, that's the words you wrote.

We can argue semantically about about my use of the term gatekeeping in this context if you'd like, but the fact that you're a pretty huge asshole to me in general isn't really up for debate.

is there any way that sixers could get KD without trading harden? i think harden and KD would actually play better with a serious 3rd wheel.

I never said that he sucked and that's why he got hurt; I just asked if Gonzaga had produced any NBA superstars aside from Stockton, and apparently the answer is either no, or not yet (unless you count Sabonis who has two all star selections).

A lot of us are guilty of being sarcastic and trollish from time to time, but some people take it a lot farther than necessary or make it personal when there really is no need to do so. I was asking a legitimate question and justin's response confused me, but dmspack cleared it up and I figured it out.

As as I've said before repeatedly, I don't have a personal problem with you. I don't have a problem with anyone who regularly posts in sports talk aside from the one person who clearly has a problem with me, which is why I try to avoid engaging with him in the first place.

Anyway, no KD isn't going to Philly to join up with Harden. He's stuck in Brooklyn for the rest of the year with Kyrie, and because he's obsessed with basketball I'm pretty sure he's going to play as hard as he can to try and have a competitive season.

Apparently, nothing. The Cavs already had a decent young roster, and while Cleveland wouldn't be my preference over NYC, Mitchell makes that team a heck of a lot better. It really just goes to show you how bad of an organization the Knicks are.

Cleveland clearly thinks Mitchell is THE piece that's missing for them. IDK if that's the case, but whatever. Utah traded away two all-stars and ended up with a shit ton of players and a shit ton of picks (7 1st rounders,6 of which are completely unprotected and 3 pick swaps)

I think in the long run they will win this trade.
