Absolutely **** embarrassing for us to get waxed like that in a playoff game. Listen I knew the Bucks would win this series but it’s obvious Jimmy Butler has quit on this team, 10 points my guy? Really? Man I hope the Clippers lose so that we can get Kawhi in the offseason.

If we're going to come back in this, its going to have to be on Spo.

He's going to have to look at game tape day and night to come up with some serious adjustments.

Adjustments that free Jimmy up.
Adjustments that open up the paint for Bam and our guards.
Adjustments on defense that actually keep the three point line guarded.
Adjustments that force them to not crash the boards (umm, pick up the pace please??)

Because right now we just look outmatched and unable to keep up on any level.

Crowder is tough as nails. He would have gotten physical with Giannis and the Bucks' players tonight. Who on our team got physical? Nobody.

People just look at the numbers and say we didn't miss out on much, but it's the intangibles that don't show up on the boxscore.


Ariza got bulldozed like 16 times tonight. When was Giannis ever able to do that to Jae?

If Kawhi was watching this game, he just crossed us off his potential maybe list. We look a shambles.

Honestly, the team has looked mentally and physically cooked for majority of this season.

Then why pay him max money? why not use his value to bring a start to play in Miami?

Bam is a Center. We need to find a 4 who can stretch and has size that can compliment him.


It's up to Bam if he can get the 3 point shoot and have a consistent midrange J. If he can, it gives more flexibility in terms of lineups. Ideally you'd want him at the 4 and have a real rim protector/rebounder at the 5. Then you can move him to the 5 when the match up dictates. Kinda like how Lakers play with AD.

I hope the Heat are not the worst team in the 2021 NBA Playoffs. Tonight they sure looked like the worst team.

Lauri Markkannen is someone i can see going after hard that fits with Bam.

Sadly we also don't have the personnel.
I'm sure Spo would continue to run our two grandpas to the ground.

Bam is an athletic Center. We need to find a 4 who can stretch and has size that can compliment him.


I disagree. He doesn't have the physical presence to compete against these 7 footers. He's not a max player. He's not a Center. Just my opinion.
I love the kid, but we might have to use his value to get another star.

The Bucks had more points in the 1st quarter than our starters had combined the entire game. I'm sooo disgusted right now just unacceptable.

But the only other place I can see him going to is the Warriors, not only are they still in California but they got Steph. But outside of Steph their roster is much worst than ours hands down & we don’t know if Klay Thompson will ever be good again. Even though we got waxed I trust Riles & Micky over Mr. “Light Years” with surrounding a star with talent at this point.

I agree this team has looked done since the beginning of the season to be honest, just too inconsistent for my liking.

We don't have the personnel. But we can do better than this. We can compete better than this.

Honestly, we didn't have the personnel last year either, even though we were better. But we competed better. Its on Spo to bring that out.

This is why we need to make a full court press on Markkannen who’s 24 and 7’0 who shoots 40 percent from 3.

Bam needs to be included in a trade offer for a disgruntled superstar.

With this energy? The Knicks would have eaten us alive. Id rather lose to the Bucks than have Knick fans gloating. Hard pass.

I know you're sad but no the Knicks wouldn't lol :lol:

Miami does not appeal Kawhi and uncle Dennis based on this series so far. They probably laughing of the idea of playing with this Bam :lol:

He would more likely to send Playoff P and Morris asses somewhere before he leaves LA.

Is he a free agent? I remember Wade speaking so highly of him when he went to the Bulls. But...we don't have Wade anymore to recruit for us :cry:

Also not sure what kind of relationship Jimmy has with him. I remember Jimmy having some issues with young players on the Bulls.

Clippers have never been to a Western Conference Finals, EVER. And look at all the teams on the come up in the West next year, you’ve got the Suns, Luka & the Mavs, Nuggets with a healthy Murray & Jokic, Lakers will get better, Warriors are a dark horse depending on Klay, I mean Clippers couldn’t even win 1st seed in the West this year. That franchise just ain’t it man, if he’s not gonna join Golden State then he might as well comeback East.

He’s restricted but Bulls might not look to overpay with Vucevic and they really like what Theis gave them. Could also possibly do a sign and trade.
