The Luka hype annoys the **** out of me. Hope they choke.

Then hope the Clippers lose to the Jazz

He is a shell of himself. NYK won that trade. Hahaha.


The unicorn is a shell of himself but he’s also misused big time. With ball-dominant hog doncic he’s reduced to a mere role player living on the dishes out like pretty much the rest of the mavs.

It’s not simple to play good D with doncic.
He’s as good offensively as he’s bad defensively. Rarely I’ve seen a worse help defender than him.

I think Doncic will eventually ask out of Dallas in a few years.

They just don't have the right horses to put alongside him.

When your best players are Porzingis, Hardaway, Dorian whatever... you're toasted, baby.

Dallas will have to really make some great trades to fix this mess.

They went all-in on Porzingis, burned 2 picks, and now they essentially have nothing to show.

KD getting the superstar treatment early in game two. Bucks have an up hill battle ahead of them if this bs continues.

lol...well this is kind of the only reason I cheer to certain teams now. If Clippers lost....Kawhi....

But seriously, if Bucks get absolutely swept ...murdered....maybe Giannis wants out finally? If he knows he has to face that Nets team for the next three years....

The only chance he'd have of beating them would be
Curry, Klay, Draymond, Giannis (assuming Wiggins would have to be traded along with Wiseman and picks)
Looking forward to 2073....bye bye pouting moody Durant...hello again the 73 win style of hoops!

You have to be able to switch everything against the nets. They’re getting too many easy shots

Bucks big 3 make $106 million next year.

I don't know that Giannis would fit that well with the Warriors. They can ride him to big regular season but how effective would he be in the playoffs?

In any case, he cast his lot with Milwaukee. Bucks going to demand like 5 FRPs or something in addition to salary-matching players.

Giannis is more likely to ask to go to Dallas or Miami.

The remaining 8 teams all play 4-5 out basketball, minus Philly. We need shooters.

He's won three titles and been to the finals 5 times as a coach?

Not sure how I feel about Dwight Howard's Sanjaya fauxhawk.

He'd choke and underperform multiple times even if he was given the GOAT roster

Bogdan in his first playoffs is balling out. Kings just let him walk without compensation, though they were stuck with Hield's contract.

Clippers just don't seem head and shoulders better than the field. They may even go all the way but there may be a lot of 6 and 7 game series on the way.

All these **** teams have plenty of players who can shoot threes consistently. I am jealous.
