This Week's Poll
This week's show we talked NBA free agency. Well, as much of it as we could cram into an hour. You can keep appraised of where players are going to in the NBA here.
The Dallas Mavericks
Boxscore Geeks Grade: A-
Anytime you get an MVP caliber player like DeAndre Jordan; you're doing quite well.
Portland signed Al-Farouq Aminu to a pretty reasonable deal. Our only major dig on Dallas is letting him go.
Free agency is the "exciting" time of year we discuss the implications of state income tax on player contracts!
We didn't even mention the Mavericks signing Wesley Matthews on the show. Excellent work.
San Antonio Spurs
Boxscore Geeks Grade: B(incomplete)
The key moves the Spurs did were quite boring, they re-signed Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green to reasonable deals.
It does look like Aldridge took a pay cut signing with the Spurs. We weren't 100% sure on the show.
For the price tag, we were fine with the David West signing. Patrick questions where the hate for taking a pay cut to play for a contender is, though.
We have many questions about Aldridge. He's been good but not the star player many think he is his whole career.
Los Angeles Clippers
Boxscore Geeks Grade: F
They lost DeAndre Jordan for petty reasons. Nuff said.
Boxscore Geeks Grade: F
So much for the idea that Hinkie is losing his ability to make trades! This trade was so indefensible it makes the offseason a failure.
New York Knicks
Boxscore Geeks Grade: C
Patrick doesn't actually like "fair market" contracts for mediocre players like Afflalo. It hurts flexibility on players without upside.
Robin Lopez is a good player signed to a fair deal.
Boxscore Geeks Grade: A
Picking up three productive players (DeMarre Carroll, Bismack Biyombo, Cory Joseph) in free agency is what we've come to expect from Masai.
Boxscore Geeks Grade: B
Greg Monroe has been all over the place, but I've decided to be optimistic about him. Patrick remains trepidatious.
The Bucks should keep Dudley, no duh...dley. I'm not proud of that.
Contrary to Patrick's point, Michael Carter-Williams is a better shooter than Ricky Rubio...barely.
Dylan Matthews(@dylanmatt) gets a shout out for his post "Three Reasons the American Revolution was a Mistake."
