Portland media a bunch of entitled brats. First, they think Lillard was snubbed because Luka was named starter. Now, the think both McCollum and Melissa also deserved to make it. You can argue McCollum except he has been injured for half this season, but Melo is a stiff.

How do we have the worst schedule by a fair margin and our next 2 games are at PHI and at BRO? BS.

NBA Central: “I don’t think it’s any secret in the league Victor Oladipo has a desire to play in Miami. He’d like to go there in free agency. They’re going to have cap space, so that may happen.” – Brian Windhorst pic.twitter.com/QrATjw5hQl

More young talent being traded. Nice addition to Detroit.

Adrian Wojnarowski: Oklahoma City is trading guard Hamidou Diallo to Detroit for forward Svi Mykhailiuk and a 2027 second-round pick, sources tell ESPN.

Stephen deserves much better than this, he received a total mess, created by Fertitta and Harden, he had nothing to do with it.

I feel so bad for him. He’s a brilliant mind, but that GM put him in a no-win situation anytime soon

With a $103 million contract under his five-time All-Star belt — plus the looming prospect of his upcoming free agency — Kawhi Leonard can afford to live anywhere he pleases. But the Rolls Royce-driving Clippers baller has chosen to splash out $17.1 million in L.A.’s sunny Pacific Palisades neighborhood, on a luxe if somewhat conservatively styled mansion atop a promontory, where the panoramic ocean views are guaranteed to wow his guests.

LaMarcus Aldridge and the Spurs will work on a buyout, as expected. 

Just like Andre Drummond, the trade market for Aldridge was never there as teams simply wanted to wait for the buyout. Miami are said to be the favorites and could use some frontcourt depth after dumping Kelly Olynyk in the Victor Oladipo deal.

If Miami signs him they would've done the best in this trade deadline, Dipo and Aldrige for free basically.

Jamaal Murray out for the year. I hate to see any player injured, but it throws open the play off picture for the Mavs.

Mavs have very easy end of year schedule if they can just win the games they are favored in. Denver, LAL and Blazers all vulnerable now.

Ice Trae has the Hawks at the 4 seed. Luka and the Mavs are 7th. Its becoming clear Atlanta made the right decision on draft night...

Especially knowing that they apparently don't even need him.

Bogdanovic would have been perfect fit for Mavs, great scorer, solid defender and can do some play making too.

You forgot the green font?

The Hawks won their last two despite Trae and Collins not playing. Plus the Mavs would be 4th in the East with an even better record.

Difference being that Trae Young doesn’t have a do-nothing cheapskate GM and Luka does. Literally that entire Hawks team other than Huerter and Collins is different than when Trae got there... and McMillan is a good coach whereas Carlisle sucks

Would you change the entire Hawks roster, for ours ... ?I don't ... although I admit that I like how the Grizzlies work ... I would have a change of office

I was in Portland while McMillan was there. Great person, but "good coach" never crossed my mind when thinking of him.
