For the Heat it is really the culture and them taking the time to invest in the development of their players.

not sure they have enough to make a run all the way, especially missing Gordon. But some other teams are short handed too a bit.


He is a huge upgrade over Capela who was unplayable in playoffs


I agree with you mostly here but I do remember Capela dominating KAT for the important part of the Rockets-TWolves series.

We really need the pelicans to win to help out our 2nd first rounder but they don’t even look like they’re in the same class as the clippers

OKC should strongly consider using its boatload of first round picks to trade for a star.

Steven Adams and Dennis Schroeder are on expiring contracts next season of $27.5mil and $15.5 mil respectively which could help make the salary matching work.

Hopefully we can get Jeremiah Grant and FVV on fair deals.

Alternatively, Jason Isaac is who I’d throw the bag at. This years pick and more if Orlando would budge. He and Mitch would be quite the long term front court. Might even get us a title if we get the right guard play next to RJ.


I didn’t know Lucius Malfoy plays basketball LOL.

Zion looks out of breath and is barely moving on the court. It’s crazy how out of shape he is

Why is Randle playing as a Pelican player (number #1 shirt) against Clippers?

I dont think we will move up the draft. I feel I am rotting against Harlem Globetrotters.

That’s an honorary title that’s passed down from generation to generation. Barkley gave it to Shaq and shaq gave it to Curry. Now it’s Zion time to shine from being overweight.

Assuming everyone remains healthy that 4 vs 5 matchup in the East is going to be lit.

zion is going to end up being the most overhyped player in nba history if he doesn't lay off the hostess twinkies and little debbies
