2015-2016 NBA Season
« on: Jun 18, 2015 at 02:46 PM »
With the coronation of a new NBA Champion comes the end of the 2014-2015 season. Time to look forward to the upcoming 2015-2016 NBA season.

First up, the NBA Draft.

Karl Towns Jr., seems to be a lock for the 1st pick for the T-Wolves. On the other hand, the 2nd pick is still up in the air. Most pundits has Jahlil Okafor pegged as the Lakers' pick, however, D'angelo Russell is making it hard for the Lakers to decide which prospect to choose.

There are a couple of decent prospects in this year's draft. The following players have been pegged to go in the top 10:

Justise Winslow
Willy Trill Cauley-Stein
Porzingis (search his Las Vegas workout video. He looks impressive but...he is a European. Darko also excelled in his workouts.haha)
Stanley Johnson
Emanuel Mudiay
Mario Hezonja (another European)

Talent-wise, I think last year's draft had more talent than this year's.

Was watching Okafor's workout with the Lakers... can't hit his jumpshot. And looked very awkward.

He looks like a 2 to 3 year project.

Nakakatawa nga jumpshot nya. May hitch. Parang hop then tsaka shoot. Pero believe it or not, he made more 3s than Mudiay. There is no need to worry about his jumpshot though. He does most of his damage in the post with his footwork and hook shot. Trust me, he is very polished offensively for a big man.

Si Towns ang medjo "project" offensively. Kelangan pa mapolish sa post.

Hope he makes it to the NBA even if he has to go through d-league first. But I'd rather get Star Wars than Ray Parks. The name alone is so full of win.

marami nga nagsasabi na ala olajuwon si okafor because of his post moves and great footwork. yun lang he looks like a liability on defense.

as a lakers fan i prefer karl towns. or if d'angelo really is a good point guard then him, medyo di ako bilib kay clarkson para maging future pg ng lakers. masyadong streaky.

If you were the Knicks, would you rather take Mudiay or WCS?

Favorite ko si Alpha Kaba. But I think he withdrew from the draft.

Phil is actually a Russell fan. Remember, he got fined for tampering yata when he mentioned Russell in an interview while Russell was still undecided to enter the draft. I bet they take him in a heartbeat if he is still there when they pick.

If wala, mas pipiliin ko si WCS if between him and Mudiay ang choices. He is an excellent defender. Athletic and agile. Can guard multiple positions. Si Mudiay parang generic lang. Madami nagsasabi John Wall type daw pero I really dont see it. He can dunk, sure. Pero I'm always left unimpressed pag nakikita ko videos nya. Mas naimpress pa ako dun kay Porzingis.

May injury na agad.  :o :o :o

http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/sports/06/18/15/ray-parks-injured-workout-nets

Buti na lang elboy to the face/head lang. So it will heal agad. Hope he gets more workout invites before the draft. Lapit na din. Kahit maka-line up lang siya for Summer League, pwede na.

+1 on Russel, not that athletic but has great floor vision & composure. Plus, NBA has become a point guard's league. You can get away with non-traditional bigs, just look at the Warriors.

Yep. Plus there are rumors about Okafor's passion and drive for the game.

Now I’ve heard, if you were to ask the Duke people, and they were to be honest with you, there’s not a great love for the game. Not like you’d think. Not a great passion. He’ll be there, and do the right things. But it’s like Jared Sullinger: I want to play, but I don’t want to lose weight. I don’t want to really get in shape. I want to do enough, but I’m not going to do extra. And that is concerning.

Potentially huge tax bill for the Warriors
This graph assumes that - Lee doesn't get traded, Green gets max, W's keep 30th pick


I think the Warriors should target a Euro-stash player to soften the tax blow, kaso wala yatang magandang Euro-stash player at that range.

Ideally, I'd like someone like Rondae Hollis-Jefferson to drop at pick 30, kaso malaying mangyari.
I also like Robert Upshaw, pero masyadong maraming red flags.

Yeah, Lee is a safe bet to be a goner. Sa lagay na yan bargain pa yung contract ni Curry ha. Swerte.

As for RHJ being available at 30, tama, highly unlikely. Early 20s perhaps. Hoping that the Lakers get him at 27 but even that seems like a long shot. I loved his effort in high school and it is good that he stayed in college for 2 years. Akala ko sasabay kay Aaron Gordon umalis ng Arizona but I guess he wasnt utilized much as a freshman. Mukhang hardworker (1st impression during Nike Summit game sa batch nila Wiggins/Randle) Other decent players who might be available : Justin Anderson, Delon Wright, Chris McCullough, Upshaw (siguro if tumino na ugali), Rashad Vaughn.

As for Euro guys, Cedi Osman lang non-big man na pwede sa style of play ng Warriors. The rest like Hernangomez, Jaiteh and Milutinov mga Centers. Pero pwedeng pwede i-stash muna.

Rumor: If Dwyane Wade leaves Heat in free agency, Lakers are an option

Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat are reportedly at an impasse in terms of what he should be paid on a new contract for the next three seasons.

And for the first time ever, it has Wade considering playing somewhere else.

Wade has a player option for next season valued at $16.1 million, but with his history of injury, he’d prefer to opt out in order to sign a long-term deal that would guarantee him substantially more. The team, however — perhaps wary of the notion that Wade will still be capable of producing at an elite level in the final year of a new deal — prefers, at this point, to pay him much less than he is asking.

That opened the door for Wade to weigh his options, and anytime a star-level player is potentially going to become available, the Lakers are mentioned as a possible destination.

Dwyane Wade and Lakers Have Mutual Interest
Quote
Chris Mannix ‏@ChrisMannixSI 5m5 minutes ago

While many execs still see Wade/Heat as contract saber rattling, a Wade option will be the Lakers. Mutual interest, per league sources.

Kobe and Wade on the same team = LA Lakers retirement home. What happens when Wade and Kobe gets injured? Tank again?  :o

If Wade and the Lakers have mutual interest, that means Lakers management are keen on signing Wade to his asking price of $20M annually?  I thought Kobe's contract was a fluke...a brief moment of insanity.  But if it happens a second time (overpaying for often injured stars that play only half a season), what is that condition called then?   ;D

I think Wade's camp is just leveraging. It doesn't make sense for him to sign with the Lakers. It's tougher in the West. He'd have an easier time playing in the East...

Unless salitan sila ni Kobe. lol. 41 games each lang sila.
