Bulls seem to have improved their C position by getting Vucevic + Theiss... maybe we'll play them in the playoffs too sigh.

Dame is phenomenal but so is Harden. Harden is winning more games too. Harden is definately the MVP as of today but I could see the Joker winning it since his stats are insane + they are also winning games now. Will be a close race.

I think bulls will get worse with this move. Vuc is empty stats, will take shots from lavine, and hurt their D. Theiss should play more, but he wont cause vuc is there.

it was an awful deal for them. Its a lock Lavine leaves at first opportunity.

Clips by 5 at the half. Philly may actually lose.

This stretch with embiid out just underscores what a bad fit they have. simmons/embiid your not gonna get the best of both. They should look to turn Simmons into Jaylen brown or someone like that who fits embiid better. or move embiid for a ransome, as he seems less healthy

Even with Biid back this 6's team don't scare me at all. We going to put up 120+ playing half court, 150+ running. They not build for that, they build shooting mid range jumpers.
I've been watching them play every game for the past few months, there's something off about them. I'm not sure exactly what it is but they won't have answer for us.
If we healthy, there is not one team that can stop us. We will be faves vs anyone for good reasons.

That Philly team will be stagnant for period of times on both ends. They just don't have fire power to allow that vs good teams.
I think Miami can will be very tough match up for them if they'll keep that first seed. That of course assuming they'll get that 4-5 seed, as they should.

Blazers is another team that I'm looking at. Very mediocre team, lots of issues. I don't see how Dame going to beat Harden in MVP race. He just not good enough. Great scorer for sure, meh at everything else.

Let's see after this trade deadline what Crapyors going to do. Do they have one more run in them to make it interesting? Not sure and very unlikely.

Dame is overrated by the national media because 1) he's a poster boy for team loyalty and 2) he's nice but no threat to the powers in charge

I'd take Kyrie over Lillard anyday especially on this team. Harden and Lillard on offense wouldn't really work and Ky is a better defender too.

Yup this is what I've noticed too. You can make all excuses in the world but he very lackadaisical on D, it reflects on team D over all. Just throwing few solid defenders not helping and won't. Bucks with all their limitations with Giannis still playing hard on D simply because he leads by example.

Teams like Utah, Denver and Portland just stupid. There are several players that can make them legit chip contender yet they sitting on their azz and picking up mediocre players that proved to be losers.
Siakam, SGH to name some. Siakam could've taken Denver over the hump, they banking on injury prone project who might not turn out to what they expect. After that they'll be crying why players like Joker leave their bum azz teams.

Portland traded for a wrong player. If they wanted Powell too just throw in more assets. They'll be second round exit at best. I think Clips will take care of business in 5-6 games.

Boston is a large market franchise that acts like they are in West Bumblef*ck, Indiana.
