    Folks have been saying you can't max KCP because he averaged 14 ppg and that Bradley is a max player. What did Bradley average his 4th year in the L, 14 ppg.

    I guess that makes Bradley a non-max salary player 3 years ago. He must have known he wasn't back then because he signed the contract with Boston that he is on currently.
    Good thing we get to wait until next year to make a decision on Bradley. Pope was demanding a max deal right now. If Bradley had pulled that stunt 3 years ago do you think Danny would have kept him? How would they have gotten Horford, let alone Hayward?

    I understand how it works here folks. Family is family and you protect your own. Pope was my guy as much as anyone else, and I believed and still believe that he has the potential to be an all star in this league.
    That being said- Avery Bradley is our new kid brother and while he rolls with us I'm rolling with him.
    Sooner or later we'll have to move on from Pope and find the positives in this deal or next season with be painful 160 times give or take not including the playoffs.

    Yeah. Capp Spayce has peaked, game over, some agents still do not get it, a year later market has cooled down, already cooling, much better negotiation leverage from teams perspective.

    He's arguably one of two truly elite players in the L right now. Difference makers.

    Curry only has about 3 to 4 more ships in him.

    They lose one starter...we lose 2 starters (KCP) and gain a final year player.

    What's up with that.......................:bs:

    Family should be the Pistons not the player.... you get some cred for the long haul when you are a vital part to a championship team.... thus the only player I have followed after leaving the Pistons as much as it pained me to do was pull for the Worm lead Bulls... (I guess he had a couple of ok team mates)

    Same here. I watched him when he was with the Spurs as well. Most interesting story of note -

    The Spurs management brought Tony (Robbins) in to help get the team over a slump they’d never been able to overcome… making it past the first round of the playoffs.

    The head coach is supposed to give him a glowing introduction but after seeing and sensing his team would feel anger & resentment toward him for serving them up to this “Motivational Guy” on their only day off… he slinks out on Tony at the last second.

    None of the players are Tony’s champion but one of them agrees to introduce him and totally flubs the introduction by saying “Uh, the dude coming up is a real nice person, and he’s sincere. Here’s Tony Robbins.”

    The fuel that’s fanning this fire is a man by the name of Dennis Rodman, one of the toughest, roughest, bad boy forwards to have ever played the game. Even though he’s not the captain of the team, his energy is so potent that it affects everyone else’s perception of Tony.

    Dennis, in an act of defiance, walks into the room, picks up the workbook Tony laid out for him and rips it in half, plops his shades on, and sits with his arms crossed.

    More from that link...it's a good read.
    If Tony can’t win over Dennis, he’s gonna lose 85% of the players at the end of the hour.


    So, Tony just being Tony, after he’s set up his frame says, “I know about you Dennis. I watched you last night. You’re one of the only guys who took time to sign autographs for all the kids. I saw that”

    Tony had brought along a group of kids that are in his Champions program. Kids he sponsors a college education for, that he’d flown down the night before. It was the first time they’d been on an airplane.

    He brought the kids to a “Big Time” NBA game and after the last buzzer most of the team just blew by them but Dennis didn’t.

    “Everyone talks about Dennis is a problem. I know you want to be totally unique & separate, on your own and I know you’re as good as they get. And I’m not here to blow smoke up your ass. But what I saw out of you though, is I saw you take time for those kids. I know who you are inside. I’m really grateful that you did that.”

    After doing this, Tony says to the group he’s telling this story to, “You should’ve seen Dennis. It was like he was saying to himself ‘Somebody really knows I’m a good guy.’

    This was the same person who was crying on national T.V. talking about how nobody loves him. Everyone’s got the fear of not being loved, including Dennis Rodman.”

    After this, Dennis sat up, took his glasses off and started participating. And for the next hour he’d gotten the group up to about a 7 out of 10.

    Well, they won a title, and we didn't make the playoffs.

    I will never understand sentimental attachment to losers, except the Detroit Lions, which is more like a Stockholm Syndrome meets The Little Engine That Could scenario.

    Sure, Darko is literally a former Professional Carp Fisherman and Kickboxer farming a fruit orchard in Serbia now. LOL
