Everyone is entitled to your opinion. There's a massive difference between:
"I like CDR." "I dont like CDR."

and

"I like CDR." "Why would anyone care about a scrub?"

Its a pretty plain difference. If you choose not see it that's your problem, not mine. Ive voiced my opinion and Ive tried to move on. If you'd like to continue this discussion feel free but Ive already communicated what I'd like to communicate.

I don't really want Rip, too old, too injury prone. I know we can't be picky, but I'd rather have Sasha.

I'm really not that into Hamilton... I'm pretty sure he's cooked.

That's why I said here is another guy over 6 foot we could have. Right now we are running the midget backcourt.

Nash / Farmar
Blake / Meeks

Can we at least get one person that has some Mike Brown length at those spots?

I dread the 2 PG lineups we're going to see this season if we don't add a bigger guard like Sasha (or Nick Young?). I've said this too much already, but I cannot stand seeing Blake at SG, struggling to guard the opposing SG, being put in that position to look bad and fail when he shouldn't be.

Completely agree. It's fine if you are running CP3/Billups 2 PG lineup, for example, because Billups can handle that role. Blake just isn't a two guard and it shows every time he gets matched up against a legit 2. Same with Meeks to a certain extent.

Andrew Bynum has decided to join the Cleveland Cavaliers.

His deal with the Cavs will include $6 million of $12 million guaranteed in the first year, then there will be a team option of $12.5 million for 2014-15. It's a decent reward-to-risk ratio for the Cavs with the deal, which is saying something since Bynum didn't work out for teams during this free agency period. He will be reunited with coach Mike Brown from their Laker days and the Cavs have a pretty impressive roster compared to last season with Bynum, Anthony Bennett, Jarrett Jack and Earl Clark. Of course, there will be tremendous concern about how their team needs to stay healthy. As for fantasy, if you're willing to gamble, Bynum could pay dividends in the late-middle rounds of drafts.

I think he likes money more than he hated playing for Brown. And yeah, Brown sure can talk, he can go over a stat sheet really well too.

Or maybe he didn't hate Mike Brown, despite one incident with the three point shot and other minor things that were overblown in the media.

Good for Drew.

If he lives up to what he can be and stay healthy, or relatively so, he can turn them into a solid playoff team.
