As we all emerge from a long holiday weekend, your trusty Tuesday Newsletter Extravaganza is determined to usher you back into NBA transactions mode
Hey Marc, hope you and your family had a fun and safe 4th of July!!
Have you heard anything that pertains to what Sexton might do next year? With the moves and the little money they have, it seems CLE may be ready to move on.
Any updates on the Mavs front, or are they still just planning to keep that last roster spot open in case they made a big deal happen? Thank you!
That brogdon signing really has me down on thinking the hated celtics will be dethroned next year
I’ve been creating outlandish trades for Durant on the Fanspo trade machine and even the most ridiculous ones seem possible right now. I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited about a trade. He goes to, let’s say, the Pelicans and I’ve got a team to feel warmth about. But if he goes to the Warriors then Darth Durant is reunited with Darth Draymond. And then I’ll feel warmth about vilifying a team. These are the kinds of mind games that us mournful Sonics fans are forced to play.
Mr. Stein, I’m probably in the minority but I much more prefer your written newsletter to the podcast. One reason I subscribe to a half dozen newsletters on Substack (and yours is the best value for the money btw) rather than listen to a podcast (I do listen to a half dozen podcasts each week) as I enjoy the written word and the elegance of words over talking. Also love your . . . . . . . .
Hope you had a happy 4th Marc!
I guess there are bunch of parties and teams that are hoping to get this KD/Kyrie saga over with—not just my Lakers, but everyday this drags on, the less certain I am that Kyrie plays for the Lakers next year.
But when I think about it, it makes sense: the Wednesday before free agency, the market for Russ was DEAD. And then, now a week later, we could somehow get Kyrie Irving?! Would seem unrealistic to even the most purple and gold colored glasses-wearing Lakers fans, that’s for sure… But, hey, you know…maybe something happens. 🤷🏽♂️
— As far as Lakers moves, have you heard about any interest in claiming Isaiah Roby off waivers from OKC???
— It’s not Kenrich Williams, but I’d be very happy if we picked him up for the Gasol TPE.
Hated I had to miss the SpotifyLive room with Pincus, but enjoyed the conversation upon playback. Hope this week goes well for you! 🏀
Got to catch a Live Session of urs after a long time 🙂 Had raised my hand multiple times to ask a question, maybe got missed in the crowd. Hopefully will get a chance to talk to u again soon...
Hi Marc!! One day closer to that draft lottery next year! Spurs and Womby a match made in heaven!!!
