If Denver is actually willing to dump #14, I don't think they'll have too much trouble unloading Faried. It's not like he's in Noah or Mozgov territory here.

I agree with you, he will be 29 at the start of season.. still young.. high energy..rebounds well...strong... aaaaaaaaaaand I think that may be it as far as things he does "above average"..

Considering we traded Donovan Mitchell last year.. maybe we should just get rid of draft picks and try to acquire established talent

I mean, Faried as a player is worthless. But eating 1 year of bad contract for a lotto pick is great value for most crappy teams. And only like $12m worth of bad contract at that.

Remember when Mozgov was holding up the Carmelo trade?

Worthless is Mozgov & Noah

But yeah Faried is damn near close, I mean the things I listed as positives are like walk on traits soooo

He does have some worth on the court but it would only be in a 2nd unit role on a great team.. so there ya go

Who is the last player to change the game like Steph Curry has? There have been some all time skilled/dominant guys, but it seems like Steph altered the entire league.

Prime Shaq was the last person to change the game like Curry has.

Yup, zone rules and total destruction of the post game is purely because of Shaq being able to obliterate everyone in the post from 00-02 en route to three straight titles, leading to rules alterations to make it much harder to do that.

Shoutout however to Nash, who combined with D'Antoni really revolutionized offense after the Shaq-inspired rule changes leading to what almost every team is doing (or trying to do) today, and spearheading the change into it becoming a point guard/playmakers league.

LeBron, Harden, GSW in general all owe those mid 00s Suns teams and Nash most specifically for how their current games are inspired. 3 of the 4 best players in the league right now are basically evolved versions of 2005 Nash.

pfffft, Nash stole his ideas from the Nets potent fast-break alley oop offense in the early 00's

He is wasting space and $$$$ we have plenty of bigs that can rotate in and out.

Jokic, Plumlee, Millsap & Lyles are all better than him.

Also we have Wilson Chandler (ageless) and Darrell Arthur who both have PO
Wilson (12.8) Arthur (7.4)

I would assume they opt in, Arthur barely plays and Chandler won't be getting more than that..

Younger me was always so frustrated that Shaq was never called for traveling when he traveled on like 75% of possessions, but I came to realize traveling isn't called ever so it's at least consistent.

But yeah, definitely Shaq. Also not that it wasn't a thing before, but you also can attribute the "Hack-A-Shaq" strategy or at least popularity in media to him.

First notable hack strategy was against Rodman when he was a Bull, so only a year or two before it was popularized due to Shaq
