Doc the first coach ever to blow three 3-1 series leads. He is also the only coach ever to blow two 3-1 series leads.

M.Porter Jr picked up #14 ... DDV #17 , should have tried to trade up there. M. Porter was projected a top 2 prospect until his back injury.
My draft picks: '15 Jerian Grant, '16 Thon Maker, '17 Isaiah Hartenstein/Semi Ojeleye/*John Collins, '18 Trade down Devonte Graham/Elie Okobo, Hamidou Diallo, buy a 2nd for Kostas

Franchise tag. But the horse is out of the barn now. The NBA runs on player movement rumors and trade talk versus actual games.

They need these guys on the move constantly.

Yup. League is absolutely bought in on being a sports soap opera.

Remember when the Kings, playing pretty solid with :lift:, decided to fire Mike Malone out of nowhere when they hit a skid because Boogie was out for a couple weeks. I do.

I only remember playing an injured Khris Middleton 43 minutes to get a meaningless April 10th win back in 2016, pushing the Bucks draft position out of the Jamal Murray slot and down to the “MVP” slot.

Does this Clips loss make us feel any better? Not sure. Probably not.

Those wins are valuable learning for our young guys and moving up a couple spots in the draft doesn't make up for it.

Or something else JimmyTheKid probably said.

You gotta be careful though, you can't just dismiss every basketball stereotype, sometimes they hide some truth.

Talk about hindsight. Denver could afford to pick him since they were stacked at that position. He had major injury concerns. It was a huge risk and high reward, so made sense for them. His injury risk and seemingly low iq (basketball and otherwise) have been noted as big red flags as well. He looks promising but let's slow our roll on this.

Also, porter was abused so bad on the defensive end in the utah series he became unplayable. Not sure how the clippers didn't take advantage of that. I'm think doc and bud should go to a seminar on exploiting defensively challenged players.

The Lakers losing to Denver would make me feel better.
