    I believe we resign John Collins regardless. The kid is too valuable and can't be let go for nothing. Hopefully we will find a way to sign him without paying max money. If all else fails, we would be foolish to not give him the max. If things don't work put in a year or too I'm sure their would be other suitors who would love to trade for him. Trust In Travis Schlenk.

    Agreed. In my mind at least, it's a foregone conclusion that Collins re-signs with us - it's merely a matter of it will be for max money or not. I don't believe it will be for max, but it will likely be close. Max or not, I don't think for a second he won't be lacing up his sneakers for the "A" come the start of next season in our rightful quest for the title.

    I'm all for unique perspectives, and I'm not immune to the occasional one.

    But I just can't buy-in to any perspective/theory that doesn't embrace the idea that (a) having a healthy Trae would have been the difference for us, and (b) having a healthy Dre might have been the difference for us, and (c) having both would have made us impossible for MIL to stop.

    I think it's a combination of your take and Diesel's. We were constantly overmatched by Milwaukee's Giannis-less lineups. Even without Trae due to AnkleGate, OO's emergence defensively on him in Game 4, along with Cam's defensively play, gave me hope to pull it out in 7.

    There is no doubt in my mind, however, that had we had a fully healthy Trae and Hunter all series going against a fully healthy Bucks team, we would have gotten past the Bucks.

    Looks like Trae and especially Cam are probably glad he's gone,  lol.

     

    I guess Nate got his hands on that police report after all...

    *Ring ring*

    This is 911 - what is your emergency?

    ???: I'd like to report a crime - assault and battery.

    911: Can you describe what happened?

    ???: Yes, I was minding my own business watching the game when all of a sudden I heard loud yelling. Next thing I know, I'm getting wailed on and thrown halfway across the arena. I think one of my legs is broken.

    911: Can you describe who did this?

    ???: Yes, it was a tall black man on the Atlanta Hawks coaching staff. His name is Melvin Hunt.

    911: What is your location? 

    ???: State Farm Arena.

    911: We are contacting the arena's security now - the police are on their way. So they know who to look for, can you describe yourself?

    ???: I'm about a foot tall, black, and am apparently good for sitting on - although I'm not quite sure how that keeps happening...

    911: Excuse me, what? I don't think I heard you right. Can you repeat that?

    ???: I'm a chair, sir.

    That’s what I love about this team.

    We have a group that’s straight-up fearless. You might have more “stars” than us, or more hype than us, or more playoff experience than us, or whatever it may be. But you’re not going to scare us. You’re never going to scare us. And that’s because we just know, no matter what’s been happening in the game up to any point — at some point?? We’re giving you buckets.

    Buckets and buckets.

    It starts with Ice Trae, of course — you know the numbers. You know the résumé. But really it’s everyone, man. It’s myself, it’s K’Von, it’s CC, it’s Bogie, it’s Lou Will, it’s Gallo, it’s De’Andre when he’s back….. there’s just no one getting minutes for us who isn’t a weapon.

    It’s everyone.

    What's a Solo gotta do to get a shout out around here? Lol. 🤔

    Solo does nothing well on a basketball court.  

    This is patently and unequivocally false - he gives a mean shoulder bump with the best of 'em!

    So, 🤷🏾‍♂️

     

    In all seriousness, dude is what I leave on the curb every Wednesday and Sunday for the city to haul away...trash.
