NBA Free Agency Recap Show – July 1 – The Starters


TREY: GOOD EVENING SWEET WORD WHETHER LISTENING TO THE PAD COST. HOPEFULLY CATCHING US ON NBA T.V. I’M J.E.: AND AS THE MULLIS AND TREY KIRBY AND FINALLY INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY. LEIGH. WHAT A DAY FOR THE DIEHARDS AND GEEKS OUT THERE. CHRISTMAS TODAY. WE’RE GOING TO DO OUR BEST TO TALK ABOUT AS MANY AS POSSIBLE. WE’RE GOING TO GRADE THEM AND GET THE REPORT CARDS OUT AND DROP THE LETTER GRADES AND ONE OF THE BIGGEST ONES WAS AS EXPECTED. KEVIN LOVE STAYING WITH THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS IS WHAT HE’S ANNOUNCING. HE’S GOING TO STAY WITH THEM REPORTEDLY FIVE YEAR CONTRACT. EXPECTED 110 MILLION AND TOLD US ALL THIS IN A FIRST PERSON ESSAY. LOVE SAID HAS UNFINISHED BUSINESS THAT NEEDS TO BE SOLVED THERE WITH A SULTRY BLACK AND WHITE GO TO. I DON’T KNOW IF HE WRITES THE WORDS BUT NICE STUFF THERE FROM LOVE. SO YEAH. LOVE STAYS WITH THE CAVS. TO TO THE GREATS. PLUS,S ON EVERYTHING. COUPLE OF A PLUSES FROM TAS AND LEIGH BUT YOU GUYS LIKE THIS ONE? LEIGH: HE MUST HAVE BROUGHT AN APPLE BECAUSE SIGNED NOT THREE OR FOUR BUT WE ALL EXPECTED ONE PLUS OPTION AND THAT’S WHY THIS IS A HUGE WIN. I THINK PEOPLE QUICKLY FORGET HOW GOOD HE IS BECAUSE THEY MADE THE RUN WITHOUT HIM AFTER HE GOT INJURED IN THE FIRST ROUND. WHEN THEY STARTING TO THEY’RE FANTASTIC. COMBINE THE FACT THAT THEY MADE ALL THE MOVES MID SEASON AND THAT’S HOW GOOD THEY LOOKED THEY WERE JUST KNOCKING ON THE DOOR. ALL THEY NEED TO DO IS GET HEALTHY AND GET SIGNED AND THIS IS THE FIRST STEP IN THAT. TREY: HAD FOUR DIFFERENT TEAMS AND SO TO HAVE CONTINUE NITTY I THINK WILL BE HUGE. ESPECIALLY KEVIN LOVE CAN SAY THEY WERE TWO WINS FROM THE FINALS. WHAT IF I WAS PLAYING AND THEN WE’RE PLAN PLAYING I THINK HE’LL MAKE THEM MORE VERSATILE. J.E.: I ONLY GIVE THIS IS A B FOR A COUPLE OF REASONS. I THINK HE WOULD DO THE TWO-YEAR DEAL ONLY IN CASE THIS DOESN’T GO AS PLANNED AND ALSO GET THE INFLUX OF MONEY BUT A GREAT MOVE FOR THEM TO LOCK HIM UP LONG-TERM. YOU WONDER WITH THE NEWS FROM TRIES ON THE THOMPSON AS WELL AND THAT’S A LOT OF MONEY. 200 MILLION DOLLARS? FOR TWO POWER FORWARDS I KNOW ONE OF THEM CAN PLAY THE FIVE AND I IMAGINE THAT’S WHAT THEY’RE THINKING. TAS: I THINK IT’S BEST CASE SCENARIO. THEY HAVE LOVE COMMITTED LONG-TERM AND RESIGNED THOMPSON WHO IS FANTASTIC AND THERE’S NO DOUBT WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT LEAST WITH THESE. LEBRON MY HAVE ANOTHER OPT OUT. HE MAY SIGN A ONE YEAR DEAL BUT IF YOU’RE DAN GILBERT YOU GO IN ALL IN AND HE HAS JUST IN THOSE GUYS AND HE’S COMMITTED THE TEAM AND IT IS A PERFECT SITUATION FOR THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS. LEIGH: I THINK WHEN HE GOT ON THE PLANE LAST YEAR IN MIAMI THE CONVERSATION WAS I’LL COME BACK BUT I HAVE THE OPT OUT TO SIT BY THE POOL AND WATCH YOU MAKE THE MOVES AND IF YOU DON’T I’M LEAVING AND GILBERT AND I THINK LOVE CAN PLAYING TOGETHER. YOU SAW DURING THE NBA FINALS THE WAY THOMPSON WAS OUT THERE PUSHING STEPH CURRY TO SEARCH SIDELINE AND KEVIN LOVE CAN HANG IN THE BACK. YOU DO THE DIRTY WORK. HE’S DONE IT AND EARNED HIS PAYCHECK AND DOESN’T CARE ABOUT THE OFFENSIVE END THAT’S THE FOR SAY. J.E.: HELPS HE SHARES AN GUILT WITH LEBRON. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT SHUMPERT AND SMITH COMING BACK? YOU THINK THAT HAPPENS? TAS: SHUMPERT HAS APPARENTLY NOT COME TO DEALS YET. LEIGH: WORKING OUT DOLLAR BILLS COMING AROUND. MORE LIKELY THAN J.R. SMITH. HE WASN’T GOOD IN THE FINALS. I THINK FOR HIS OFFENSIVE ABILITIES THOUGH THEY MAY BOTH RETURN.>>LET’S HEAR FROM YOU AND SEE THE LETTER THING. MAX THERE WITH THE CAVS STAYING WITH CLEVELAND. LOTS TO GET TO HERE. UP TWO TOGETHER WITH THE SPURS BUT REPORT CARD AND GRADE THE DATE. SORT OF IN AGAIN RAUM TO NOW FROM WHAT WE KNOW. STARTED THERE WITH THEM KEEPING SPURS FORWARD IN DEFENSE PLAYER OF YEAR AND AGREED TO A FIVE YEAR CONTRACT. THIS DAY IN SAN ANTONIO COULD BE WORTH ABOUT 90,000,000.>>JUST SIGNED THE BEST PLAYER TO A 90,000,000 DOLLARS. IN RELATED NEWS. GREEN AGREED TO A 45 MILLION. FOLLOWED THAT UP BY TRADING SPLITTER TO THE HAWKS TO STILL GO AFTER ALDRIDGE WHICH WE CAN GET TO IN IN A SECOND. NO LAMARCUS IN SAN ANTONIO. DO YOU HAVE YOUR PHONE OUT. KEEP CHECKING TWITTER BUT ALL OF US AGREE WHETHER OR NOT HE GETS OVER THERE THAT AS PRETTY GOOD DAY. EVERYONE DROPPING A PLUS ON THE FIRST DAY.>>SHUMPERT PROBABLY LOOKING FOR MORE. GREEN COULD HAVE EASILY DONE THAT. LOOK AT CARROLL FOR 15 PER YEAR AND GREEN COULD HAVE EXPECTED THAT. HE WOULD SUPPOSED TO MEET WITH THE KINGS AND HIS HOME TEAM REACHED OUT AND HE SAID I’M GOING TO PAY HOMAGE TO THE DRAB CHASE AND THE GUYS THAT TOOK LESS MONEY SO KUDOS FOR DOING THAT.>>HAVE TO LOVE THEY ARE ABLE TO BRING BACK STARTING WING GUYS BE MAYBE THE BEST DEFENSIVE DUO AND THE LEAGUE IS GETTING SMALLER AND EVERYONE NEEDS SHOOTING AND BOTH DANNY GREEN CAN GUARD MULTIPLE POSITIONS ON THE COURT AT THE SAME TIME.>>HEADING INTO THIS WE SAW THE SPURS WANT LEMARCUS AND THAT MIGHT MEAN THEY LOSE DANNY GREEN BECAUSE OF THE BOOKS AND THE CAVS THERE AND TO GET HIM AGAIN TO A CHEAP DEAL THAT’S GOING TO LOOK RIDICULOUS WHEN THE CAP EXPLODES FOUR FOR 45 AND KEEPING KAHWI. NO-BRAINER SO FAR.>>EARLY REASON. DIDN’T GET OVER IN LOVE WITH LEMARCUS AND MAYBE NEGLIGENT HIM AND MAKE HIM I’M GOING TO LOOK WHAT’S AROUND THERE BECAUSE THERE’S PROBABLY MORE MONEY. SPURS TAKING CARE OF THEIR FIRST. THEY’RE GOING TO HALF A GOOD TEAM THOUGH LOST SPLITTER. THEY’LL FIND A PLACE AND I DON’T THINK THEY’LL BE TOO DISAPPOINTED.>>COVETED AROUND THE LEAGUE AND 28 YEARS OF AGE HAVING TO SCRAP TO GET TO THIS POINT I THOUGHT MAYBE THIS COULD BE THE BIG PAYDAY. MAYBE SOUGHT ALL THE MORE MONEY FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE BUT AGAIN BEING A SPUR THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS.>>AND AGAIN THE SPURS MAY NOT BE OVER. THEY’RE WORKING ON NEW DEALS WITH DUNCAN AND GINOBILI’S BUT STILL MAKING PLAY FOR DEMARCUS ALDRIDGE. THEY HAVE MET WITH HIM AND NOW LAMARCUS MEETING WITH EVERYONE. WE’RE SCHEDULED FOR A MEETING AND STARTING THE SET LATER TONIGHT BUT WE RECENTLY LEARNED THAT IT DIDN’T GO SO WELL WITH THE L.A. VICE IT. LOTS OF TWEETS FROM MIKE TWEETING HERE. LAMARCUS WILL NOT JOIN THE LAKERS IS WHAT THE TIMES HAVE LEARNED. 50/50 CHANCE BUT HE AND KOBE, MIKE SAYS DIDN’T QUITE GEL BUT MAYBE HE DIDN’T GET THE ANSWERS FROM KOBE HE WAS SEEKING. I GUESS KOBE SPOKE FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES AND SAID ENVISIONED HIM WORKING THE WAY GASOL DID.>>LAST NIGHTETH WAS CHEERY. IT WAS GOOD. QUOTE UNQUOTE GOOD. WHAT HAPPENED.>>I DON’T BUY ANY OF THIS.>>THEY’RE ALREADY SHOOTING.>>MOST OF US. ALREADY. THOUGHT THAT ALDRIDGE WAS LEADING TOWARDS THE SPURS IF HE WANTED TO WIN RIGHT NOW.>>THAT’S THE THING. THE BASKETBALL PART OF IT. LAKERS WON’T BE SUCCESSFUL.>>YOU WANT L.A. YOU’RE NOT GOING THERE TO WIN RIGHT NOW.>>LOTS MORE STILL TO COME. QUICK BREAK AND WE’LL GRADE MORE OF THE SIGNINGS INCLUDING THE JUNK YARD DOG. CARROLL NORTH OF THE WALL. RIGHT BACK YOU’RE WATCHING “THE STARTERS”. J.E.: WELCOME BACK. FREE-AGENCY FEVER FREAK OUT. LEIGH CHECKING THE TWEETS AS WE SPEAK. ANYTHING NEW? BREAKING NEWS.>>SOURCES SAY 60 MILLION THE THIRD DEAL IS A PLAYER OPTION.>>OKAY. INTERESTING.>>GET TO THAT LATER.>>STAYING WITH THE FAMILY.>>REPORTEDLY OFFER FROM THE MAVERICKS. GOOD STUFF. KEEP CHECKING THE TWEETS. LET’S KEEP GRADING SOME OF THE OFFICIAL SIGNINGS FROM TODAY AND WE’LL LUMP THE SUNS MOVES TOGETHER FOR OUR REPORT CARD. BRENDON KNIGHT HAS RESIGNED WITH THE SUNS. FIVE YEARS AND 70 MILLION DOLLARS. AND THEY SAID RETAINING HIM WAS VERY IMPORTANT TO THEM. A TOP PRIORITY.>>THEY GAVE UP A BIG PICK FOR HIM.>>THE SUNS. BIT OF A SURPRISE HERE. SIGNING TYSON CHANDLER TO A FOUR YEAR 50 MILLION DOLLAR DEAL. TC AVERAGED TEN AND 11 WITH THE MAVS AFTER BEING FIRED FROM THE KNICKS. SO WHOA, WHOA. GIVE THE SUN AS REPORT CARD IN KNIGHT AND CHANDLER SIGNING WITH THEM. I GIVE IT A B AND EVERYONE ELSE AT THE TABLE. GIVING IT THE BARELY PASSABLE, C.>>I’LL START OFF. I LIKE THESE TWO PLAYERS INDIVIDUALLY BUT I’M CONFUSEED BY ROSTER STRUCTURE GOING ON IN PHOENIX. START WITH TYSON. HE’LL GET PAID 13 MILLION FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS AND HE’LL BE 37 BY THE TIME THAT’S DONE. THAT AS LONG TIME FOR AN OLDER 33 YEAR GUY. CAME IN THE LEAGUE AS A HIGH SCHOOLER AND I’M CONFUSED BY ALEX LYNN MINUTES. I THOUGHT HE WAS COMING ON AND WAS COMING ON AS A MENTOR. ARE THEY GOING TO HAVE THOSE GUYS EARN ABOUT 20 MILLION AT THE CENTER SPOT. YOU DO HAVE A GREAT TRAINING SPOT. AND I’M CONFUSED AND THE SAME TIME WITH BRENDON KNIGHT. ARE THEY SHOPPING. WILL THEY WORK TOGETHER? WHEN AND WHAT ARE THEY DOING?>>CHANDLER FIT IS FINE JUST KIND OF HARD TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THEY’RE DOING. YOUNG PLAYERS KEPT BRENDON KNIGHT WITH TYSON CHANDLER. THEY PLAYED 11 GAMES SO IT’S HARD TO TELL IF ANYTHING WILL HOLD UP BUT IT’S HARD TO FIGURE OUT THE STARTING SHOOTING GUARD. THEY SEEM TO HAVE GOTTEN TOO GOOD TOO FAST AND NOW THEY’RE TRYING STAY THERE. WHEN IN REALITY THE SONS ARE A FRINGE PLAYOFF.>>FOR ME IT WAS ABOUT TYSON CHANDLER. I KNOW HE PLAYED A LOT AND HE IS IN PHOENIX WHICH IS A GREAT HISTORY BUT I DON’T THINK, I THINK HE’S IN DECLINE AND WILL STRUGGLE ALL RIGHT BIT TO STAY ON THE FLOOR AND I THINK BRENDON KNIGHT IS A GOOD PLAYER AND NOT SURE HOW THAT PROJECTS HIM FURTHER. NOT A BAD DEAL BUT MAYBE HARSH. MAYBE C PLUS.>>SEVEN A TEACHER AND WE WANT TO HERE FROM YOU. JUMP ON TWITTER. GRADE THE SUNS AND MOVING ON TO THE NEXT ONE. CARROLL AGREED TO A DEAL WITH THE RAPTORS AND ANNOUNCED IT ON INSTA-GRAM. HE BEAT THEM AT HIS OWN GAME LETTING US KNOW HE IS PLAYING WITH THE RAPTORS AND BLESSED FOR THE OPPORTUNITY. FOUR YEAR 60 MILLION DOLLAR OPTION WITH NO OPTIONS WITH CARROLL THE HIGHEST PLAYER ON THE RAPTORS- WHICH IS A LITTLE WEIRD BUT OVERALL A’S AND B’S WHEN IT COMES TO THEM.>>I THINK THEY’RE GOING TO LOVE THE JUNK YARD DOG. HE IS A FAN FAVORITE RIGHT OFF THE BAT AND THIS TEAM WANTS A HARD-NOSED PLAYER AND THEY TRIED FOR MATT BARNES AND TRIED FOR TYSON CHANDLER AND HAD OAKLEY AND JEROME WILLIAMS THERE AND THEY’LL BE BARK FROM THE RAFTERS AND I’M OKAY WITH A 15 MILLION TAG FOR THIS GUY. THEY NEED A GUY LIKE THIS AND HANDLE THE WIZARDS A HECK OF A BO LOT BETTER. HE IS A GREAT PIECE AT THE WING INSTEAD OF TERRANCE ROSS.>>YOU WORRIED HE’S AN ASSISTANCE GUY. MOST WERE COMING OFF ASSISTANCE AND WASN’T MUCH OF A PLAYER BEFORE AND TAUGHT HIM HOW TO MOVE WITH THE BALL. THEY’RE PLAYING ISOLATION BASKETBALL AND I FEEL THAT AS PROBLEM FOR HIM.>>DEFINITELY AN ADJUSTMENT. THE RAPTORS NEED PERIMETER DEFENSE A THREE TO DO THAT. FINALLY GET THAT IN THIS GUY WHO IS ONLY GETTING BETTER IN THE LEAGUE. I ALSO THINK I’M WITH YOU WITH THE 15 MILLION. PEOPLE GO THAT’S WAY TOO MUCH. IS CARROLL WORTH TEN MILLION FOR YOU. IF HE IS IT’S THE SAME CONTRACT BECAUSE ONCE THAT NEW CAP KICKS IN IT’S GOING TO COMPARABLE SO IF YOU DON’T THINK HE IS A TEN MILLION PLAYER THAT’S THAT BUT IT’S NOT GOING TO SEEM LIKE MUCH WHEN THIS HAPPENS AND WE EXPLODE 30 MILLION.>>HE’LL BE PLAYING HIGH FIDDLE AND I WONDER IF THEY’RE THE SAME PLAYER AS WELL.>>I’M NOT SURE.>>BUT I WONDER IF HE’S GOING TO HAVE THE SAME SUCCESS AS IN ATLANTA LIKE KYLE KORVER WHO WE KNEW WAS DEADLY FROM THE OUTSIDE. MAY EXPOSE HIM A LITTLE BUT CREDIT TO IT HIM WHEN HE EARNED THAT CONTRACT FROM THE WAY HE PLAYED THIS SEASON. FINAL ONE. DRAGIC IS STAYING. FAIRLY POSITIVE MOOD. TAS TAS I WORRY ABOUT THE FIFTH YEAR. I LOVE DRAGIC. THIRD NBA TEAM. ULD GET HOME CO-COURT ADVANTAGE. IT COULD HAPPEN. COULD HAVE GOT THE MAX IF HE WANTED TO. I THINK IT’S ACTUALLY A GOOD DEAL.>>I THINK HE CAN USE THAT TO FURTHER THE ROSTER.>>TAKING A BREAK WE’LL GET SOME OF THE GUYS THAT DID STAY PUT. SO MUCH MORE. YOU’RE WATCHING “THE STARTERS”. J.E.: WELCOME BACK. FEW OTHER NOTABLE SIGNINGS. AVNT ANY DAVIS SIGNING THE MASSIVE 5 YEAR 400 MILLIONISH STAY WITH THE PELICANS.>>MY BUTLER WITH THE BULLS FOR A FIVE YEAR 95 MILLION DOLLAR MAXIMUM CONTRACT. CHRIS MIDDLETON IN THE BUCKS FOR A NICE 70 MILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT. GREAT FOR A YOUNG GUY LIKE HIM AND PAUL MILSAP IS REPORTEDLY WILL STAY WITH THE HAWKS. QUICKLY START WITH DAVIS. THIS NO SURPRISE AND HAPPENED EARLY. TO AS LONG AS MUCH MONEY AS POSSIBLE. HE’S ONE OF THE BEST ALREADY. TREY: SMALL MARKET SIZE LIKE NEW ORLEANS GETS ARGUABLY A GUY THAT’S GOING TOE TO BE THE BEST PLAYER IN THE GAME. THEY HAVE THE LOWEST EVALUATION THIS YEAR AND ARGUABLY THE BEST PLAYER IT ALL PANNED OUT. THAT’S WHY TEAMS WANT TO WIN THE LOTTERY. THAT’S WHY THE SICK I SIXER DOES WHAT THEY DO. THEY HOPE YOU CAN HAVE LOCKED UP FOR ABOUT EIGHT YEARS. YOU’RE IN THE LEAD THERE.>>THE FACT THAT HE’S GREAT NOW GIVES THE PELICAN AS FREE HIT IF THEY OWE IT TO HIM WITH GREAT QUALITY TALENT IT’S ON THEM NOW TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE COB TENDING WHILE IN THE PRIME OF HIS LIFE. J.E.: FIFTH YEAR IS AN OPTION SO THAT LAST ONE. IF HE DOESN’T LIKE WHAT’S HAPPENING HE CAN MOVE. TREY: ALSO HAVEN’T BEEN COACHED A GAME AND SAYING HEY, I AM A NEW ORLEANS PELICANS FOR SIX JEERS. J.E.: JIMMY BUTLER SAID HE’LL STAY WITH THE BULLS. UP IN THE AIR HOW LONG THIS CONTRACT WILL BE. THREW THE MAXIMIZING QUALIFYING OFFER ONLY A MINIMUM OF THREE YEAR DEAL SO SMART PLAY BY THE BULLS BUT IN THE END HE’S GOING FOR THE FULL FIVE YEARS. WE’RE SEEING THEM TAKE NOT THE SHORTER CONTRACT BUT THE LENGTH. LEIGH: HE’S 25 AND ONE OF THE BETTER TWO-WAY PLAYERS AND GOT HIM FOR EVENTUALLY A DISCOUNT. THE PROBLEM IS THEY HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO PLAY WITH HIM AND DEREK ROSE. A LOT OF TIME THIS TOOK TURNS RUNNING PICK-AND-ROLL AND THEY HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO MESH TOGETHER AND NOW THEY NEED TO FIGURE IT OUT AND WIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP. TAS: I DO THINK IT’S COOL TO SEE A GUY BET ON HIMSELF LIKE JIMMY BUTLER DID REJECTING THE BULLS AND HE SAID NO I THINK I’M BETTER THAN THAT AND I MEAN IT PAID OFF. HUGE FOR THIS GUY. ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. TAS: THAT WAS PART OF THE LAST SEASON PEOPLE FELT THEY OFFERED HIM A TOO LOW CONTRACT AND HE GREED AND NOW EARNED IT AND HAS A BIG DAY PAY OFF. TREY: HE SAID I WANT TO BE A DECENT ROLE PLAYER. I AM A KID FROM TOMORROW BOB TEXAS. J.E.: THEY LOSE CARROLL TO THE RAPTORS TODAY BUT IN THE END KEEP MILSAP. WAS THERE AND PLAYED IN TERMS OF KEEPING MILSAP? TREY: BUT MAGIC WERE OFFERING 4 AND 80 AND MILSAP TOOK A TWO-YEAR DEAL FOR THIS DAY TO GET PAID AS A 30-YEAR OLD AND CAME BACK TO ATLANTA OBVIOUSLY JUST FEELS A LITTLE BIT OF LOYALTY TO THEM SO IT’S GREAT FOR THE HAWKS. TINY SURPRISED. I WAS WORRIED THOUGH. TAS: THEY WANTED TO SEE WHAT WOULD HAPPEN WITH DEMARRE SO THEY WANTED TO KEEP MILSAP AND DID. FORTRESS ROCKS ON. J.E.: STAYS STRONG. ONE MORE BREAK ON THE STARTERS. FREE-AGENCY FEVER FREAK OUT SHOW. WE’LL COME BACK AND TRY TO WRAP OUR HEADS AROUND SOME OF THE SMALLER DEALS THAT HAPPENED THROUGHOUT THE DAY. YOU’RE WATCHING “THE STARTERS”. JI BACK WITH THE STARTER AS LOOK AT SOME OF THE SMALLER FREE AGENT SIGNERS LIKE THREE YEAR 60 MILLION. BROOKE LOPEZ WITH THE NETS AND PORTLAND. FOUR YEAR DEAL. 30 MILLION. CAUGHT SOME BY SURPRISE. MIKE DONE I WILL MISSING OUT ON THE CASH. 14 MILLION AND JOHNSON IS HEADED TO JOHNSON. BRENDON WRIGHT HEADED TOWARDS MEMPHIS. LOTS HAPPENING ON A FREE AGENT DAY. WE’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT ALL OF THESE SIGNINGS IN GREATER DETAIL ON TOMORROW’S PODCAST CALLED THE DROP UP ON I-TUNES AND CHECK THAT OUT. YOU’LL NOT SEE OUR UGLY FACES UB UNTIL WE’RE IN VEGAS FOR SUMMER LEAGUE JULY 10TH THROUGH 29TH AT THE SAMSUNG NBA SUMMER LEAGUE DOING LIVE SHOWS EVERY NIGHT FROM THE THOMPSON MACK CENTER AND CHECK US OUT. HAD A BLAST LAST YEAR. WE WASTED SO MUCH CAGE LAST YEAR IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE. TREY: REMEMBER. FREE-AGENCY IS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN EVER. J.E.: EMBRACE THE NIGHT PEOPLE.

  1. Come on Laker Nation…D.Russell gets the keys next summer unless we land KD

  2. Yeaaaaa! Bulls kept Jimmy and Mike so our starting 5 will remain. I read somewhere that we might try and go for Jeremy Lin, I mean he'd be alright off the bench.

  3. The fact that the lakers made no moves and that's all anyone is talking about is disgusting

  4. Don't know what my Suns are doing, and i see Caroll as a future Gerald Wallace, bench warmer and cap killer

  5. I wish Minnesota signed back k love they could been known as kkk kevin garnet Karl towns and Kevin love

  6. dellavedova is straight trash, the cavs need a better backup point guard

  7. Please check out and Subscribe to my channel MasonTalks, where i talk about Cleveland Sports!!

  8. Who is the biggest loser…the celtics. They stashed a million draft picks and all they got so far is no love and amir johnson. THE GREAT AND POWERFUL AMIR JOHNSON is coming to boston. Celtics sucks.

  9. Kobe going to be dropping 81 point quadruple double games this year making these fuck boys pay for not joining Laker Nation

  10. Lebron vs Kobe

    Rings: Kobe 5, Lebron 2

    Finals Mvps: Kobe 2, Lebron 2

    Rookie of the year: Lebron 1 Kobe 0

    2 pieced by Chris Childs: Kobe

    Rapist: Kobe

    No one wants to play with: Kobe

    Got carried for 3 rings: Kobe

    Makes teammates better: Lebron

    Passes: Lebron

    Torn Achilles(idiot): Kobe

    Mvps: Kobe 1, Lebron 4

    Most misses in NBA history: Kobe

    Better player Kobe or Lebron: Lebron

  11. Draymond acting a little shady. I mean, we will still sign him no matter what, but why he gotta go talk to other teams doe.

  12. Lol Cavs are paying 80 mill to one half of the Trash Brothers who only avg 5 pts LMAOO!

  13. Cavs are stacked to no end, oh well they won't win anyways because they have a shitty coach and a power forward that is complete shit on defense. Warriors, Spurs, or Thunder taking home the title next year. LeBron could potentially go for that illustrious 3 peat and lose in the finals 3 times in the row.
    #Facts
    #CandyBarsNigga
    #ShoutoutToMyNiggaJamesSmith

  14. K.J. McDaniels should sign with my Warriors on a minimum deal.

  15. My Opinion For The Suns is These Sign At FA is a A+. Why? Tyson Chandler can be The Bench Guy Who Just Gonna Bring Up The Team at 2nd Quarter and the 3rd Quarter. Knight? He Will Get Paired With Bledsoe and Get To The Starter

  16. I gave this show a try…
    It should be called 3rd Stringers cus this is unwatchable.

  17. If Draymond motherfucking Green deserves a max contract idk what to think of Max Contract players anymore lmao.

  18. Kobe telling me I gotta play a Pau Gasol type role (LOL). Coach Pop knows how to run a team. I'ma sign with the Spurs dawgggg
    #FuckKobeAndTheLakers

  19. Can't believe Damarre Carroll bitch ass left, but now we Tim Hardaway jr. And Tiago Splitter.

  20. Butler will tear his ACL/get hurt this upcoming season. Remember when Rose inked that five year deal after 2011-2012? He got injured multiple times (Like the BITCH he is)

    #ShitcagoCurse

  21. KLove's "Unfinished Business" is winning a championship with the Cavs .

  22. he Cavs are stacked for next season! Kevin agreeing to 5 year contract Lets Go!!! #CavsNation

  23. Lmao lakers fans I thought everyone was joining the team?😂

  24. I would really like too see the contract the bulls gave dunlevey go to Wes Matthews

  25. Uh oh. What happened laker fans ? Finally realizing no one cares about your team ? No one wants to play there.

  26. Glad Kings are only paying 62 mil for Demarcus Cousins.All these players are overpaid.Non of them are better than Cousins.lol.Steal!
    Knight=70 mil
    Thompson 80 mil
    Tyson= 50 mil
    Carroll= 60 mil
    Dragic= 85 mil 
    Middleton= 70 mil

  27. I swear yaw laker fans think yaw can get anyone cuz yaw from LA. LA MY ASS. Nobody want to play there

  28. God damm stop hating on the suns! They were aggressive today! And that suns team was good but they didnt resign guys like frye and other veterans and added a pg that wasnt needed! Yall need to become more educated on basketball! That suns team won 48 games and didnt have bledsoe for 40 games guys!

  29. Paul pierrrceeee joining the Clipperrrrrrrrsssssssssss. Yesssssssssssss!

  30. suns looking to get aldridge for sure, thats the reason for chandler

  31. WARRIORS WILL RAPE EVERY TEAM NEXT SEASON.FUCKBANDWAGONS FAN

  32. Yes!!! fuck you lakers!!! no love, no gasol, no jimmy butler and lamarcus is going spurs hahaha stay scrubs forever you fucking cunts!! ,,I,,

  33. I was stoked when I heard we re-signed Dragic at $85 million, thought he would demand more. Tas was bit concerned about his age later in the deal, but I think his below the rim game will keep him going for a while

  34. Sometimes as a cemltic I just shake my head , amir Johnson, why .he's so shit for 12 mil a year . danny since better do something .

  35. Loving these Starters videos so much more lately! So hot in my summer in the UK, and just chilling to these in the morning with some nice breakfast, so good 🙂 Can't wait for more guys! 😀

  36. I like how people are saying we aren't gonna get Aldridge. Kids, don't believe everything those "sources" told ESPN. I suggest you look at Kobe's tweet.

  37. Thank you for keeping at it this offseason.  Much appreciated.  Forreal

  38. I still have a feeling that Love and Irving well get injured again and again and will never live up to their true potentials.

  39. If aldridge goes to the spurs, Spurs vs Cavaliers 2 is almost guaranteed. I would love to see lebron lose again.

  40. never really understood talking about a player in the plural. "The Jimmy Butlers"

  41. The Suns got C grade for getting pieces to get LMA, but the Raptors got A for the biggest overpay in awhile. That 15 mil will look ridiculous even with the cap going up to 90 mil next year, the guy is a Tony Allen at SF spot.

  42. O yes Goran Dragić signed with the Heat,''let's get home court advantage''

  43. THE BEST english podcast about the nba is hands down!!! nate mc duncan's podcast.
    the language, the insights, the profoundness.etccc…….

  44. #CHECKTHISOUT THE BEST english podcast about the nba is hands down!!! nate mc duncan's podcast. the language, the insights, the profoundness.etccc……. http://basketball.realgm.com/news/wiretap/tags/104/Duncd-On

  45. Listen… I went to the heat vs Suns game and I can tell you 100% certainty that Alex Len is complete trash… He got dunked on all night… And got blocked four times… And got out rebounded all the damn time…. Yeah it was against Whiteside… But still. I saw enough to know he's garbage.

  46. do you really think green earns 11mil per year?? I'll say he earns five mil per year max

  47. If Spurs get Aldridge…. Rest in piss NBA 😂

    "It's oveeeerrrrrr" – Kenny Smith

  48. Aldrighe is nice Lakers dome trade d;angelo Russell for jahill okafor

  49. The Cavaliers sure are taking advantage of that salary cap increase.

  50. Watch, Lakers fans.

    When Kobe is gone concluding the 2015-16 NBA season, the Lakers will be back in the mix in free-agency.

    I'm calling it.

  51. So the Suns get mostly C's for picking up Tyson Chandler and possibly displacing Alex Len, but the Cavs get mostly A's for committing $190 million to 2 power forwards and displacing Mozgov? Yeah, makes sense.

  52. I don't know why everyone's complaining about being a Lakers fan! Try being a Kings fan!!

  53. HAHAHAHAHA FUCK THE LAKERS KARMA FOR DRAFTING RUSSELL WHEN PHILLY NEEDED HIM THE MOST NOW YALL ARE GONNA SUCK FOR 5 YEARS TOP KEK

  54. Denarcus VS Aldrige

    Lebron VS Leonard

    Randolph VS Tristan Thompson

    Curry VS Dellavedova

    Smith Vs Conely

    Duncan VS Mozgov

    Shumpert VS Draymond Green

    Tyler VS Cody VS Garret Vs Cory VS Coby (Dude Perfect)

  55. If I was in the nba I wouldn't care about the money I would just make sure I get on a team that will get a W

  56. Jr should leave because then love gets to take more shots along with kyrie and let dellavedova be the 6th man and put tristian at center since he will have a more higher chance of rebounding

  57. ℓαмαя¢υѕ αℓ∂яι∂gє ωαитѕ тσ ѕιgи ωιтн ѕρυяѕ тσ ρℓαу ιи нιѕ нσмєтσωи σf тєχαѕ αи∂ ѕρυяѕ αℓѕσ яєѕιgиє∂ тιм ∂υи¢αм

  59. could you guys at NBA post the full episodes of the starters at the summer league on youtube please

  60. a healthy OKC team will annihilate every team on the west including the first round chokers san antonio sperms

  61. Lol @ the Cavs overpaying for an overrated spot-up shooter

  62. Spurs 2015-16 Lineup –

    PG – Tony Parker
    SG – Danny Green
    SF – Kahwi (Ka-Why Not?) Leonard
    PF – Lamarcus Aldridge
    C – Timmy (Mr. Fundamentals) Duncan
    6th Man – Manu Ginobli

    Your 2015-16 NBA champs.

  63. I give these guys a F. For not knowing what they're talking about. Grades that they gave out was horrible. Learn your basketball guys!!!

  64. lol at lakers fans who thought aldridge was going to be a laker. ain't nobody that likes playing offense want to play with kobe
