Mike Conley is taking over! The Spurs had an early lead against the Grizzlies, which made Game 4 of this playoff series feel eerily similar. Memphis was in a rut, but they managed to go on a run and this Mike Conley was the exclamation mark.
Thanks to a nicely-timed screen, Conley created enough space to shoot a three but was snagged by the defender anyway. Still, that wasn’t going to stop Conley from draining that.
This is one of those shots you practice in the driveway as a kid, with the hopes that you get to show it off in an actual game. It’s better than that, actually. This is a cheat code shot.
That was a great shot and Mike Conley knows it.
But that leaves Brent Seabrook and Artem Anisimov as the guys Bowman could try to convince to waive their NMCs. Both players are expendable parts of the system relative to some other players, and their contracts aren’t so onerous that it’s impossible to see the other 30 teams being disinterested.
The circumstances make it difficult to see, though. Maybe some team views Seabrook as Authentic Cheap Jerseys being worth his nearly $7 million cap hit, but then you also need to (a) get both teams to agree to a fair trade, and (b) convince Seabrook to waive his NMC for that one team willing to take him.
Could that scenario come together? Sure. It would also be a lot more complicated than Bing Cheap Jerseys trading someone who couldn’t block any deal.
This isn’t going to happen for a lot of reasons, starting with the no-movement clauses. There’s also the matter of selling ownership on trading a big name like Toews or Kane when they’re regularly among the top-selling jerseys in the league. Trading popular players is hard — it’s even harder when they’re three-time Stanley Cup winners who helped transform the franchise.
