WTF is going on with Markkanen...

Got to hand it to him, Love is playing well. Boosting his trade value, thumbs up for that.

But the D...gheesh. You give up over 30 points to the Raptors in the 1st? Despite inactive players...

Nets fan tuning in to see our boy Fro, but I guess he's out?

So, watching the game anyway, and I'm just laughing how terrible Austin Carr is. Sounds much like someone they pulled out of an alley, warming himself around a trashcan fire. Then I look at his pic, and he's a respectable looking gentleman. I just can't put the two together, lol.

Funny, but I think I remember him from the 90's Jazz finals teams. He used to wear a dark visor with some Darth Vader / insect vibes IIRC.

Austin Carr...? You sure you got the right guy?

Anyone for a sig bet?

We make it past the 2nd round.

Damn no, I had confused him with Antoine Carr about that last part.

Btw, I think people would be silly to take that sig bet. Outside of a kryptonite matchup, Cavs should easily make the second round.

I see them as arguably the 3rd-best team in the East, behind BRK and MIL. Very real possibility they spoil either of those two's postseason IMO.

Austin Carr is ear poison. I struggle to watch the games.
