    Yeah. They would be able to sign someone to the mid-level exception, which is how GS got Boogie, which allows them to go over the cap (it's like $5 millionish, which isn't a ton but enough to get a ring chasing star). They would also be able to sign people to minimum contracts to go over the cap.

    They are going to be competitive. LeBron + AD + Kemba (who is the rumored 3rd star) + Kuzma are going to hog most of the usage, and then they can find a handful of ring-chasing asshats to eat the rest of the minutes. I don't know how much LeBron has left at this point, though, and so I'm not willing to call them the favourites.

    I also have no idea what Milwuakee, Toronto and Philly are returning yet, either. People have already forgotten how stacked that Milwaukee team was, Toronto just won the championship, and Philly with an Injured Embiid was a cunthair away from beating Toronto. If those teams all manage to run back their rosters (which will be very hard to do for the Sixers and Bucks), I don't think I'd favour LA over any of them. LeBron is going to be 35 next year, and he stopped playing defence 3 years ago.

    Davis is going to be all of their defense unless they find some 3&D unicorns that will sign for less.

    I love how r/nba pretends that type of player just grows on trees and will come flocking to LA to fill out their roster.

    Yeah, if I were LA, I'd chase Malcolm Brogdon for like $18 million, then try to get another elite 3-and-D type like Danny Green or Patrick Beverly. Even Rudy Gay could be a good option. Kemba Walker is one of the worst defenders in the NBA. Do you really need a 3rd high-usage guy over someone that can play defence?

    If they got two of the aforementioned guys (they probably won't), then I'd call them favourites. A starting 5 of (for example) Brogdon - Danny Green - LeBron - Kuzma - AD would rape people. That team scores 200 points a game while actually being able to kind of guard people.

    That would work, except I want Dallas to get Brogdon. So LA should totally use all of their cap space on Kemba instead.

    Brogdon fits in everywhere. I imagine Milwaukee will just match any offer and re-sign him (unless they want to lose Giannis in two years). But if teams are willing to pay him like $18-$25 million, that's going to be hard for Milwaukee to match without paying a lot of luxury tax.

    There's not a lot of luck in basketball, so the best teams tend to win over and over again.

    If Tom Brady played in the NBA, he'd have 14 rings already. He won't get his 14th ring in the NFL until 2027.

    Toronto is such an awesome city. We look for any excuse to collectively get drunk with people from all over the world. After today it's on to PRIDE next weekend, then we can transition into Caribana and then TIFF.

    Toronto, Vancouver, California and New York need to get together and form a Super Nation with Bernie Sanders as our president. All the Rural Shitholes in between can have their own nation with illegal abortion and Donald Trump and Doug Ford. We'll even give you hockey, since we don't need that white trash sport.

    All of that shit is worthless in regulation play. What a sharp elbowed joke.

    I predict that this nation will eventually degenerate into the far left condescending to everyone else (formerly of the far left).

    "Have you been to that shithole Toronto? Talk about backwoods - they still allow banks and meat there. I hope we can just secede into our own nation someday and leave these northern bumpkins behind"

    I was drunk when I posted that.

    But a society in which "eating meat" is the conservativism we are mocking, rather than abortion bans and border walls, sounds awesome.

    Also, we will definitely have a border wall.
