I didn’t see one so I will start one. Who is this Kyle Guy fellow that Sacramento got??? He looks like a burgeoning good old fashion sniper like a JJ Redick or a Kyle Korver.

Andrew Wiggins is making $95M over the next 3 seasons. You better hope that 1st you got from Minny is really good for taking that contract and giving up DLO.

DLO ain't all that. Minne will most likely suck like usual.

Definitely most likely. Plus the west is tough. You never know though. The Memphis pick was suppose to be very valuable last season. Then they nearly made the playoffs.

Even if Minny is bad its still possible they keep their pick which is top 3 protected. Then maybe Minny is better next year when it's unprotected.

Just saying Wiggins costing you so much in the luxury tax for 3 years will be a tough pill to swallow if that pick doesn't become something good.

Curry looks very ordinary so far... Not like the guy who was once discussed as better than LeBron.

Well folks can stay on him because there’s no one else out there with him that you have to worry about. That was a game changer when Klay went down, literally.

Their payroll is terrible for the product they have on the floor which is most likely a lottery team again. GS dynasty is also over.

There's not been much mention of the Nets. They look like a contender. It's only game 1 and GS isn't showing much. Keep an eye on Brooklyn.

I’m confused about why they traded Russell.

Curry + Russell is an all star backcourt even without Klay. Then they could have dealt Wiseman for a third star.

Because neither guy plays a lick of defense. Russel was an alternate all star because of injury on the east in a contract year. I personally think he's pretty overrated.
