Soooo.... Jayson Tatum is still better than Ingram, Zo, Zu, Kuzma, and Josh Hart, right, Boston and NO?

The Nets probably snitched on him to lower his FA market.

The idea that anyone would attempt to smuggle dope on a plane is beyond me. There is no way around the stupidity. Can't claim ignorance.

It's incomprehensible that a team so reliant on one player at this stage of the playoffs.

What’s really crazy is that the Raptors went 17-5 in 22 games without Kawhi this season. They shouldn’t be THIS mediocre without him.

Credit to Philly though. They’ve built what is probably the second best starting lineup in the league. Might even be the best. When you get to the playoffs, the top heavy teams almost always overwhelm the teams that are less top heavy and built off good depth.

Neither team is getting much from the bench outside of may be James Ennnis with Philadelphia but the Raptors bench is being brutally exposed and their non-Kawhi starters cannot keep those line ups afloat either.

Its still a good indication of why its important to not fall in love with players plucked out of the g-league with obvious athletic limitations. Fred Van Vleet looked excellent value but right now he can barely get his shot off and looks every bit like a player that doesn't belong at NBA level.

Absolutely insane game between the Nugs and Blazers. Going in on the 4th overtime period.
It's **** 9 AM in my home country, can't remember the last time this has happened. :lol: :lol:

Jokic has already beat the single game minutes played in a playoff game. He's at 65 minutes.

****, he missed a FT that would have probably sent the game into the 5th overtime period. Damn shame.

I’m glad somebody else holds grudges like me! Lol! I can’t stand Murray’s ass! I love Jokic’s game and want to root for the Nuggets but can’t because of Murray.

I’m probably a bit over the top petty though. I still even hate Beverley over the way he made Lonzo’s debut so miserable and that’s why I don’t even want him in FA, lol.

Feel like the West is going to be open next year after Durant heads to NY. If we put a good team around LeBron we have a real chance at a championship.

Couldn’t have hoped for a better flame out than what the Celtics are experiencing right now. Kyrie probably better off leaving, Tatum losing his luster, looking like they’re headed nowhere.

Two top priority things I always look forward to at the beginning of every NBA season.
Lakers winning.
BOS losing.

One out of two isn't too bad.

I’m so glad we didn’t get Capela. I used to think he’d be a good fit with Lonzo, which could still be true. He’s looking like he just got paid and is taking it somewhat easy right now. Perhaps he plans to play harder some other time. Or maybe he’s just bored watching Harden.

Must suck to be a fan of a Harden team. The most boring offense ever; ‘give Harden the ball’. Watching him at the FT line is boring.
