    The korver trade is pretty insane (and he's going to sit on the bench too...)

    It's gonna work out great for the Cavs, can't believe the GM pulled it off.

    Yeah, Lue already said he's going to start Liggins over Korver.

    i know right?!

    though i think he'll do better on court imo!
    didnt Lue say he will come off the bench and Liggins will stay starter because he 'likes the way Liggins defends opposing point guards' ?

    Lue called Korver one of the three best shooters coming off screens which technically groups him with the Warriors’ tandem of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson? dont you think?


    isnt Smith leaving the Cavs because of a thumb fracture?

    Quite honestly, I agree with Lue's decision. Korver will definitely get an extended run with the starters tho. And he'll strengthen the bench team immensely.

    I agree with Lue's assessment of Korver, but he is regressing.

    Idk about Smith...

    I think he spent more time perfecting the craft of shooting rather than practicing defense.

    My friends only play with me because I play good defence... otherwise I would be the last one picked in all cases

    They always make me guard the most annoying guy with good handles...

    Yeah but I guess when you play to such a high level... focusing on one part of your craft to make yourself useful for the team and to survive is not such a bad thing

    ahh i see- you can see how my defence will be crappy haha

    i guess so! my handling is quite good, cross-overs are my fav, breaking ankles of the guys towering over you is quite fun ngl :rofl: but mainly that and shooting are my strong points- only reason i got on the teams.

    butttt yeah youre right! :yep:

    The NBA is such a competitive league that if you aren't a star player, you have to be extremely good at one or two areas such as rebounding and defence etc... for you to be able to survive as a role player... people like Jimmer Fredette died because he wasn't consistent enough in any field.

    So you are the annoying guy with good handles :rofl: I do not get a lot of steals and blocks but I foul and pester the guy so much that they don't score... but I do get ankle broken every once and a while

    Loool I call all people guys, even girls a lot of the time Cool you must be hella good then

    I can definitely not steal from you... my on ball defense is good when I do not try and reach for the steal. hahaha definitely, but the person who's ankles got broken can't be too upset because there is still a game to play (or channel your anger into defensive plays )

    That's great

    :rofl: I am sure I will be. I play high stamina defense so like Draymond Green except I don't have that much stamina. My defense loses effectiveness after a quarter of non stop play.
