.

I would say he gets it retired only if he has a good tenure here (stays past his 4 year contract or retires here) .

If he packs his bags to go back to Cleveland or start another championship team somewhere else, he doesn't.

Now LeBron is going to wear 6 and AD will be back to 23.

Not to jinx things but I raise you, brother Beethoven. A three-peat isn’t out of the question. Not if we lock down AD.

I believe no doubt we can back to back. But we must LOAD MANAGE next season.

Load manage yes the right way.

Play in every game and methodically, strictly limit mins. This way we still develop play chemistry and learn knee jerk schemes to seamlessness and still give fairness to the fans who pay to watch.

Not the class-less kawhi method.


Agreed 100% with both of you.

In addition, load manage AD by playing him at the four through the regular season like we did this year. That’s what he wanted and got and it worked. Repeat. This is another reason for why we need to lock down a solid C; to keep AD from getting hammered over the shoulders by giants every night times 82. We’ve promised AD not to do that to him.

I say keep Howard and Kostas, add a FA C. Who’s attainable and available? McGee is okay but I’m curious to see whom Rob might find. Wonder if DMC is done.

These are all nice champion-‘problems’ to have.

Man, it feels good to have order in the world again.

2020-2021
PG: Caruso, Rondo, Bradley
SG: James, Green or KCP, THT
SF: Kuzma, FA, Caroline
PF: Davis, Morris, Cacok
C: Howard, Kostas, FA

Go huge: PG James | SG Kuz | SF Davis | PF Kostas | C Howard

I was so pissed yesterday. Thought the game was scheduled for a later time but when I checked in it was already halftime. No competition from that point forward.

Anyway, congrats fam! Got #17 finally!

Just wanted to drop in and say im extremely proud of Kuz and Caruso. I know Kuz as been the irritant for many people but i absolutely loved him on defense. He was bad on offense but his defense on Butler was stellar. Im extremely proud of him being able to reinvent himself on defense to such magnitudes.

Caruso man what can i say...My favorite **** player on this team i absolutely love this guy and i am definitely buying a Caruso jersey. Love this team love our guys.

Still miss BI though lol.

Love how Cook telling AD to run-it-back!

I can't believe the last time we did this, Adam Morrison was drinking champagne... And Luke Walton was a player...
Not to mention Dr Buss and Kobe were both still alive...

I just wanted to point out that AD has exceeded my expectations already. His uncanny shot making marksmanship when the game is on the line is unusual for a big man. It really reminds me of Dirk at times. AD is such a talented player overall, I'm so glad this guy is still improving and getting even better than before. It's exciting to think he's only entering his prime years. Without AD we probably would be playing Nuggets to Game 7. So huge thank you to the CHAMP Anthony Davis!

Any parade scheduled so far or will it be suspended due to Covid? If everyone is wearing a mask, I don't see any problem.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

As much as I would like to see some sort of socially distanced parade, I don't think the city will allow it.....

Team already announced no parade for now, they’ll wait until health guidelines recommend that it’s safe to do so.

^That's weird. It may be sometime next year. It can come right after we win our second banner.

What are they going to do then? Schedule the 2020 parade on the Monday and then schedule the 2021 parade on Tuesday ?? Or combine both?

Crazy.

Does Avery Bradley get the ring despite quitting on his team?
Arguably the greatest franchise ever
