    [–] Steven Adams cops fans' criticism after OKC Thunder dumped from playoffs. Fair or harsh? Vordeo 10 points ago in nba

    Eh, it's mostly been criticism in the sense that while he's a good player he is on a large contract. The three big contracts OKC has are him, Russ, & PG13.

    And OKC's problem at the moment is their salary cap, so people looking at his contract as the most logical to dump makes some sense.

    As a Filipino, I do not want Doug Ford being dumped in Manila. There are enough douchebags here as is.

    As a Filipino I'd be very surprised if Duterte actually did something he said he'd do.

    There are a shitload of Filipino domestic helpers in Canada, I assume. We've been brainwashing your kids.

    OTOH Tim Horton's has been expanding like nuts here in Manila recently. I assume each branch has maple syrup cannons hidden underneath or some shit.

    It won't be pretty.

    Eh, the trash thing is a one off which Duterte is pretty much exploiting to score political points. In general the healthcare workers sent abroad send money back to the country, and those remittances are a huge reason the economy has been growing.

    I work in the Philippine healthcare system. Getting enough good nurses (and doctors) to staff clinics & hospitals is huge pain, as while the system produces a lot of healthcare graduates many just want to get the required years of experience before heading abroad to find better paying jobs.

    It's probably a net benefit for the country overall, and to be fair healthcare reforms in the pipeline theoretically will help alleviate the brain drain, but it does also bring up problems for the domestic healthcare system.

    I mean if there's such a flood of nurses in the home country, and they can't get living salaries, then... I can't imagine the nursing service in the Philippines itself is all that good?

    The public hospitals aren't good, but private healthcare in general is decent. Not amazing, but the medical professionals produced generally know their stuff.

    [–] What’s Next for OKC? Vordeo 2 points ago in nba

    Option 1: Trade Steven Adams to get rid of his cap space and acquire picks and young players. This allows OKC to spend in Free Agency for shooters however leaves a huge question mark in the middle. I mean is Adams really worth 26 million when a play style that he possesses is essentially gone from the NBA?

    People keep saying this: I don't think it'll be easy to move Adam's contract. Dude's very good, but he is a limited player, whose style isn't really that suited to the modern game. He's arguably more effective in OKC's system than he would be in most others. And he's making $26m+ / season for two more years.

    Ideally they'd flip him for shooters, but I don't really see too many teams actually wanting the dude (given his contract) and willing to give up solid assets to get him.

    And as he's the main route they have to opening up significant cap space (WB and PG are pretty much untradeable) I really get the feeling they just change coaches and run things back next season. Add whatever shooters you can find off the bargain bin, hope Robes comes back strong, and if that doesn't work move Adams' deal next offseason when it's an expiring.

    Not great, but it is what it is.

    [–] Is Dame worthy to have his jersey retirement with the Portland Trail Blazers? Vordeo 1 points ago in nba

    Walton got you a chip. And won an MVP. Dude was arguably the best player in the league while healthy. Dame's got longevity, but you got to give that to Walton.

    Lol true. In that case, Walt Bellamy apparently played one game for the NO Jazz, and I'd say he was better than Starks.

    [–] Paul George should've taken that last shot. Is it wrong to love seeing Westbrook lose? Vordeo 2 points ago in nba

    I don't dislike OKC, but I'm not going to pull for them to win anything until the Sonics have a team again. Gotta stick to your principles.

    [–] So do you think OKC tries to go for it one more year before blowing everything up? Vordeo 1 points ago in nba

    Yeah, I get the feeling they bring in a new coach (IDK who though, Kokoskov?), try to get some cheap shooters in, and run it back. Their cap is fucked next season, might as well try to win something. Of their big 3 guys Adams is the most disposable, but tbh I don't think his deal will be easy to move at all. They've got a the talent to make a deep run, but they need a coaching change, badly.

    [–] [Serious] What changes do the Oklahoma City Thunder have to make to their roster/front office as they enter into next season? Vordeo 2 points ago in nba

    -Trade Adams for shooters

    He's the most logical guy to trade and clear up cap space, but I'm not convinced he actually has the trade value people think he does. Dude is good, but he isn't the most versatile player out there, and he's on a huge contract. Unless the Thunder are willing to package picks with him I'm not sure how many teams are interested in taking him and sending back good assets.

    Again, good player, but for $25m+ / year you want a bit more value.

    [–] [Serious] What changes do the Oklahoma City Thunder have to make to their roster/front office as they enter into next season? Vordeo 3 points ago in nba

    It has to start with a new coach, but your roster needs to then be built to suit the systems / strategies of that new coach. In general that'll probably mean signing more shooters, but I don't think standing pat with just these players will be enough.

    But yeah, new coach. I don't know why you guys have stuck so long with Donovan, tbh.

    [–] How can the OKC Thunder retool this offseason? Vordeo 10 points ago in nba

    OKC gets an even bigger return if they'd traded WB instead of Harden at that time.

    [–] After a lot of dying, im pretty happy with my collection. Vordeo 1 points ago in gaming

    I've platted the Dark Souls games, planning on doing Sekiro once I figure out why my laptop is having framerate issues running the thing.

    I haven't looked at the achievements, but I'd imagine Sekiro would be easier to plat, as no online play means no covenant item grinding?

    [–] Mitchell Robinson: The Next Great Big? Vordeo 1 points ago in nba

    Eh, that choice aside Maginka drafted pretty well. Kuz and Hart were steals. Lonzo wasn't the best pick in hindsight but at the time it made sense. Lots of teams missed out on him.
