I had one good year left, then Klay/Bledsoe would have fell off a cliff.Marcos_Beck wrote: ↑Wed Nov 13, 2019 3:39 amI'll put my teams in hot seat (agree with some mentioned in the podcast btw)
Jazz, like mentioned, should've been much better in a relatively easy West.
Magic, because of Willy's refusal to add shooting.
Thunder, you don't see quality playoff teams being destroyed in a glimpse like it happened in OKC.
Wizards, trading his pick was not Gary's best decision, specially since Milos proved he wasn't enough alone for multiple seasons :/
I would have added Denver but Myles made moves to improve his team, that means a lot IMO. Adding Guler was really nice even with Wall there. Also, he's currently positioned for a playoff spot.
As for the island, I would have brought a guy I'm a fan of, Julius Randle. Having Markkanen taught me not every big has to block shots, and he can do everything else.
How so?emplep7 wrote: ↑Thu Nov 14, 2019 6:01 pmInteresting conversation and another Tim relic now.
I'll keep my hot seat to myself for now since I do potentially want to write an article about this, but I can't argue with any of the GMs you mentioned.
The SJJ island is an interesting one because I wasn't on there before I started thinking about bringing him on board and started looking closer at his ratings and stats. I don't know how that is going to translate to the new engine, but I do think that he will still be highly effective.
I was worried about how efficient he would be on our team, but hes been having a career best year so far so we will see if he keeps that up, but if he does I'll be happy.
My island player would probably be Briante Weber. He could be a very solid player, but shoots very poorly. I would love to bring him on as a project player to try and get his shooting % up.
Well yeah technically(just fg% wise). But if you look deeper, there is a reason why he is shooting better.emplep7 wrote: ↑Thu Nov 14, 2019 8:12 pmIn 32 games so far, hes shooting 49% and rising bringing his yearly shooting % up to 46% (which is the second highest of his career). His previous career high was 6 seasons ago when he shot almost 48%. All of this leads to my statement that "hes been having a career best year so far so we will see if he keeps that up, but if he does I'll be happy."
