Nick Collison makes a good point about the Warriors record sale: “Warriors sold 4record 450 million after being bought for119.if nba is “broken” why are teams always sold 4profit … My point is these very smart businessmen would not continue to invest is a failing system paying record numbers team after team.”
Some thoughts from Oregon on Rich Cho: “Everyone knew this would happen, and I don’t mean to bash Cho, who I’ve heard good things about. But when the top GMs in the league saw what Allen and the Vulcans did to Pritchard, they all thought the same thing: why would I want to go work for that crew? So now we’re either going to get a retread, or an up-and-comer who will stay for a couple years, build his resume, and leave.”
More on Ryan Reid: “Florida State associate head coach Stan Jones, who worked with Mr. Reid through college, says the Thunder fell in love with Mr. Reid during a game last December against Georgia Tech. With scouts from several NBA teams in the stands to watch other stars, Mr. Reid played shutdown defense and notched his career high 17 in points. Reid picked a good time to play his best career game, didn’t he? I was in Atlanta last December for FSU’s overtime victory there. There weren’t all that many reporters on press row, but the NBA scouts numbered in the 20’s. Clearly, at least one team was impressed with what Reid did – and especially what he did defensively against Gani Lawal and Derrick Favors. And, as Reid’s case well shows, it only takes one team.”

Darnell Mayberry writes OKC is “better off” without Al Jefferson: “Maybe Jefferson will be a great addition for the Jazz. Maybe Utah should have simply plugged Paul Millsap into Boozer’s spot. But it’s no question Oklahoma City is better off without Jefferson. The Thunder has a squad that won 50 games last year. A group that has proven it fits together and won’t complain about roles or touches. Most importantly, the Thunder has a bunch that has done all those things without blowing the budget.”
