Lakers will catch up but I expect Nick Nurse to be able to make another adjustment.

Raptors have trouble though against the top seeded teams in the East. I don't think they will make it to the NBA Finals and maybe not even the ECF.

I mean if he cannot solve his weight issues you would want to avoid him chasing the wings in the perimeter, which would mean having to make him your primary paint defender.

If his weight compromises his athleticism Zion doesn’t have the length to become a good rim protector. His wingspan is 6’10 at best versus the 7’3 of an average Center.

A couple weeks ago he was looking ripped. Now he looks fatter than ever. He might be a small ball 5 now but can’t protect the rim, so he’s kinda screwed


Wish we had a big as good as Embiid or Ayton.

Bucks, Celtics and Heat I think can take out the Raps in a 7 game series.

I think the Raptors can beat the Sixers though given that they are good in containing Embiid.

Root for the Raptors.

Not that it matters in the whole grand scheme of things but I just want to select before Masai.
