Bradley out for COVID protocols.

I have no idea why he didn't play in the bubble anymore.

I guess he must’ve thought it’d be over by now; probably decided he can’t hang them up for good because of Covid. The alternative means playing.

LOL at the hobo fans laughing at us for laughing at them for the luke kennard deal.

They'll find every reason under the sun to justify whatever garbage moves they do, but will sit back and criticize every move we make.

So much freakn drama around the NBA these days, and we are just sitting here in the eye of the storm cruisin along (for now).

Reminds me of the WWF (back in the late 80s) during the Royal Rumble , the Million Dollar Man would sit on the turnbuckle just watching everyone take each other out. ... We are the Million Dollar Man !! AHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

And then they get Harden. Life comes at you fast in the NBA.

Yet, from an LAL perspective, they do not worry me for a second. Our biggest opponent was and remains health, me thinks.

Can't believe they gave up jarrett Allen. Who's guarding AD?

That Brooklyn team is such an island of misfit toys. Durant is good, beyond that who else is a good two way player and who can play off the ball? Is DeAndre going to be your last line of defense in 2020? Where’s the bench depth with Levert now gone and Dinwiddie injured plus no picks to replenish?

Jordan
Durant
Harris
Harden
Irving

With shamet the only trustworthy option on the bench. That team could be scoring 150 a game and still barely eek out wins.

I'm not mistaken, BKN has no back up C anymore. I hope Cavs can waive McGee so we can pick him up.

I agree with your points. My first thoughts were, who's playing defense and what does their bench look like.

If marks can find a sucker for Kyrie, he’s likely gone. My guess would be Orlando.

How about giving up KCP, Shroder, Caruso, and THT for Kyrie?

This is the same Clippers scenario. The chemistry with the Nets is all over the place. With managers like Nash and Antoni, that doesn't make it any easier for them to rally around each other and win the chip. We still have the best chemistry in the league.
