Looks like JamesHarden is kind of positive about Carmelo going in to Houston.

A quote from Harden:

Quote
"Everybody in the world knows what Carmelo brings, how gifted and talented he is.

“He still has a lot more to go. If he comes to the Rockets, we'll get the best out of him."

But the stats doesnt tell it.
His worse career stat was recorded when he was at Oklahoma. (That could also be the reason they didnt offer him anyth8ing again)

He should prove himself now.
That is number 2 team of the Western Conference which he will be joining in. (Actually 1 if we will look at the season rankings.)

It is more about west vs east than lebron vs warriors. If lebron was on east with the same roster lakers has, he could easily achieve finals once again, it would be even easier than last year. Think about it, they had so many problems with the roster last year and was horrible. This year this lakers is better than last years cavs team if you ask me. However the difference is that lebron won't be playing toronto or boston, lebron will be playing against okc, spurs, rockets, pelicans, warriors and all of those great teams. Last year he had trouble single handedly beating pacers and celtics, he did it but it took a lot from him, this year he has no shot at going to finals because west is a lot more tough than east.

The main purpose of lakers getting lebron is to get a chance of being relevant once again but the reason why they are not giving away their young players is because they believe in couple years when lebron calls it a career (probably last contract he has) he will leave a great team behind him at lakers.

I understand that lebron is amazing but he is also getting older each year and can't really continue bringing this team into relevancy forever.

Nevertheless if you put ingram+lonzo+kuzma and whoever else they have into a lebron lead team with other veterans like rondo and beasley and lance helping them out a bit too, those kids will develop a lot faster, much faster and when all those veterans leave, these kids will be amazing and keep bringing lakers to playoffs at least, maybe even further depending on what happens with warriors in 4 years. The great thing about lakers is that they are seeing the potential of these young players even after the 4 year contract of lebron ends.

I have to disagree with you Lebron James didn't go to the Lakers to become a mentor for their young players, he is just there hoping that a big market team will be luring more Free Agents next off season. He wants this season to be a sacrifice for him because he knows there are a lot of superstar free agents coming next season. Trust me that all their young core will be touchable once the right player/s signs with the team. That is what happened to the Cavs when Lebron didn't want Wiggins on the team as he wants a big help with Kevin Love. Lebron is there because he know he has h8gher chances of winning more rings with this big market team.

I Include David "The Admiral" Robinson and Kawhi "The Claw" Leonard, when this players played together they shown how simple basketball can be, the minister Pop bring the best out of his team, the system really balance making the Spurs one of those favorite team who silently dominate Lebron, Manu "The Magician" Ginobili will be remembered  because of the way he dominate, a player who can go both inside and outside attack, farewell and thanks for the game where you inspired fans all over the world.

He is not getting any younger, he has a good record and we will always cherish that.
The big 3 of spurs before will complete their retirement because I believe after Manu, it's going to be Parker who will follow to retire.

Goodbye to the big three of San Antonio but they are now Legends. Hall of Famers which made a big impact on how a team play should be.
Defense then a higher percentage of a field goal after a good D.

This three made NBA look great. Of course it includes their roster. Horry, Bowen and so much more.

Yeah they are legends now. Duncan is the first one who retired and now Manu did retire now and after this season, I believe Parker will be retiring too.

The Spurs are reshuffling their roster now and they acquired new and young members in their team. I'm thinking how will DeRozan fit in their roster. Any ideas??

Oh, sad day for San Antonio fans, Robinson, Manu, Duncan and Parker was the core of the team during its run as champion in the early 2000's. That's why I think that getting Leonard was a start of a dynasty for them but it didn't turn out that way. We enjoy Manu throughout his NBA stint and we will not forgot those amazing defense and offence he has shown us, specially his EURO step. Pretty sure that he will be a HOF.

It is sad to see Manu go but people are reacting like spurs are gone as a franchise and will never be like the good old days. First of all they had a 40 year Manu last year, even tho he played well and provided with some bench and veteran presence he wasn't the person who change the course of the team or something. Secondly they had Kawhi but he played like 9 games and was gone, he didn't play at all so when they traded Kawhi and got Derozan back, that is a HUGE improvement for them, not because Derozan is such a great player (he is tho) but because they basically got Derozan in exchange of nothing (maybe green). So basically this year they will have a all-defense point guard at Dejounte, a Rudy gay that is healthier, a Derozan, lma and Pau at big. This team is once again a 50+ win team and can even content if they can improve from last year (hardly enough to beat warriors but who knows what happens). So even tho Manu going is end of one era, it also creates a whole new era for spurs.

This is rrally sad. I remember the time when the coach of Golden State Warriors is talking to Manu saying that he can still continue to play as long as he wants too, he even gave some example of players that did. I just feel so old remembering the great team of San Antonio Spurs when it is still one of the greatest team of NBA.

Oh well, San Antonio has given us good games specially during the prime days of their big 3 or 4. So there's nothing to be sad about Manu leaving the game. I do hope that we can see him in the background though, just like any players who have retired, who either became a assistant coach or head coach after some time. San Antonio should give me some potential position from behind because Manu has a lot of offer and teach young and upcoming NBA players.

San Antonio Spurs has agreed with Quincy Pondexter for next season. I can say that I'm not sure if I can make a very good contribution, but it will add something in the direction of the attack.

That's really sad. He's one of the best players that I loved watching.

I also seen a tribute video on how his move became popular and was imitated by many superstars. I'll try to look for that video. SAS has been one of the most loved teams of all when they were playing with Tim Duncan and their tandem has been liked as well.

The Spurs are reshuffling their roster now and they acquired new and young members in their team. I'm thinking how will DeRozan fit in their roster. Any ideas??

Well, DeRozan can create shot using the isolation type but it could not always go that way.

I do believe in Pops though. He could change the way that man play and maybe give him some courage when they reach the playoffs.
We know ehat happened with DeRozan at that time in Toronto where he was a little shaken.
Here he could take back what he had loss and maybe get to the Finals with his skills.

Goodbye to the big three of San Antonio but they are now Legends. Hall of Famers which made a big impact on how a team play should be.
Defense then a higher percentage of a field goal after a good D.

Experienced wise, coach Pop has all the tools under this belt to take DeRozan under his wing and blossomed him to be the next big player in San Antonio, he is young, very talented but lacks composure that separate him from being a elite player. Might take a couple of games for him to adjust, but I think he will do good under coach Pop and we don't know, maybe he can bring back the glory days of San Antonio again.

I do not think derozan will keep playing like what derozan used to play on toronto but you guys are forgetting one thing. Yes in 2014 when spurs won the title they played the best team basketball there is but two years ago spurs was heavily reliant on kawhi making plays for himself and scoring, last year it was mostly on lamarcus aldridge and his 1 on 1 with his defender on low block.

Mainly spurs is not playing the "beatiful game" we remember, they did turned to a more isolation related game, which derozan excells at. He might share the ball a lot more because its spurs, they pass more than others, however not like used to so derozan will be required to do ISO even if not as much. They do not have that many scorers on that team, this year they will only be derozan and lamarcus, anyone else scoring is just open shots, the ppg for all others will be low.

Actually I am kind of excited of their line up now.

New players and there might be new plays that we will see. But we can still see how Pops works on his plays. There might be some isolation for Aldridge but that is also the Duncan move which he already prepared a long time ago.
They are stretching all the plays they can get last year because of Kawhi's injury.
Let us face it too, Ginobili was not that fast anymore last year but he still did a great performance.

DeRozan
Aldridge
Mills
Gasol
Rudy Gay
and their #18 pick Walker
New acquired three pointer Belinelli.


Now they need a good 2nd team.

You need at least two or three superstars to win in todays NBA.   The days of a solid group of role players winning a title are long gone.  We won't see a nother team similar to the 2004 pistons for a long time.

To be honest, the NBA has gotten a lot less exciting because of the Golden State Warriors. There team is stacked to the max with all their star players and it's just causing other players to form their own superteams.  Everyone wants to team up in todays NBA instead of taking the difficult path.
