I am really liking these quarterfinal match ups. I don't think its a coincidence that these 8 teams have been some of the most active this off season.

I am always up for a trade; but barring a blockbuster star type offer, its getting harder to make the simple one for one deal. I just can't afford to send a center for a point guard or a point guard for a center. My depth is that kind of tight.

IRL Cavs potentially starting Garland/Okoro/Markannen/Mobley/Allen

I hate that so much of my future is tied up in real life to one of the worst run organizations in the league.

Garland and Sexton starting. Mobley or Markannen coming off the bench. They have lost their mind if they think Okoro is a shooting guard :lol:
