I can’t pretend to know what every team in the NBA wants for Christmas, so it’s a good thing I GO HARD NOW was lucky enough to get the Christmas lists for every team in the NBA. Yesterday, Angelo shared the lists of six teams, and today I have another six. If you are any good at math and alphabetizing stuff, you should have a faint idea of what the rest of the week has in store here at IGHN.
Dallas Mavericks: An even newer CBA that allows Mark Cuban to simultaneously put himself in the starting lineup AND spend as much money as he wants on free agents without any kind of cap on player or team salaries. His end game is to put so much talent on his team that he can win a title as the starting point guard for the Mavs.
Denver Nuggets: The ability to play every game at home… and maybe a new arena at an even higher elevation.
Detroit Pistons: For Charlie Villanueva to decline his 2013-2014 player option. Then the Pistons can pretend their 2009 off-season signings never happened.
Golden State Warriors: For Bogut to ever play again. The Warriors have to choose between a few offensively inane centers… If Bogut can walk and block a few shots, he’ll be an upgrade.
Houston Rockets: To go back in time and sign Jeremy Lin to a minimum salary five year contract in the 2011 off-season before he went to New York and inflated his value.
Indiana Pacers: For their seven foot tall, athletic freak, all-star center to shoot above 40%. Because even that would be a terrible shooting percentage for Roy Hibbert.
