Didn’t hear that. Vuc I know has had a shoulder injury during the playoffs I know for certain. Was discussed in first game.

David and Jeff just said he was icing it before the game and that he's "banged up".

Best season we've had in the past 7 years. No regrets. The guys all played hard and earned this.
Exactly. Unexpected good year, I'll take it.

Welp, glad I got to finally enjoy some real basketball with everyone on these boards this season! I think we have a lot to build on (granted everyone gets healthy next year) but certainly, a lot to work on as well.

A lot of decisions to be made. It was definitely a long season and will certainly be a long offseason, so I think I will take a hiatus until draft time.

Cheers to a fun season. We deserved it.

I dont have a crystal ball. Seems like you have by suggesting earlier Vuc will take up a quarter of the cap.

That's what I believe the market value is for him but just like overvalued stocks, I can have the opinion that his market value is wrong and a poor investment. NBA owners have proven to be idiots with the contracts they hand out (cough... Biyombo... cough) and I don't want this team to fall victim for it again.

Possible someone offers him 25? Yes.

But I think we can bring him back lower than 25million.

Fun season, we went further than anybody expected. Some difficult decisions to make this summer but I’m glad we found a good coach in Clifford that the players play hard for.

I can appreciate that they just reminded us on TV that no matter what, we still have a better playoff percentage & history than Toronto.
I'm so proud of our guys for stepping it WAY up and overachieving just to get into the playoffs.
And then WINNING game #1.
Who saw that coming?!?

Two more years and our steady guys (Gordon & Isaac) will be much improved.
And we'll have the young'ins getting into their groove by then as well.

Totally agree. Almost had game 3 in this series as well but Toronto made more plays in the end than we did. Orlando made an amazing run to clinch a playoff berth and competed the best they could until Toronto flexed their muscles and their talent took over.

Now looking forward to Weltman and Hammond to make our success sustainable and ultimately get us to where Toronto is now.

Eh... I would rather have a shot at Morant or Williamson but it is what it is. That said, hopefully this showed AG and Isaac what it's going to take to win at the next level. That's the only silver-lining I take away from this all.


I just don't understand this mindset. It is just as likely to demoralize them as it is to make them step up. We got destroyed most of these games, as in it wasn't close. It could cause them to work harder and know where they want to go. It could also make them deflated and do nothing this offseason until they "get more help". Lets not pretend it is automatically just good news all around.

The second round of the east is when the playoffs really start. I think Boston, Philly, Tor have the better teams but Mil have the best player. It's going to be a great second round. But I am picking Philly.

Boston is the big question mark for me as they have all the talent in the world. I don't trust Embiid's health nor Philly's depth to make it to the finals.

Milwaukee's talent is always underestimated. Bledsoe had a great year, Middleton had a very solid year, and Brogdon should be back soon. They have plenty of talent besides Giannis.


I have been following the bucks for awhile when Giannis doesn't play or doesn't play well they are not good. Hell the magic beat them, lol. At least the other 3 teams can hold their own without their main guy.

I knew it was over for Vuc when I saw Marc Gasol move laterally better than him in Game 4. Just a horrible visual and the final straw

I feel you on that. It would definitely be nice to get one of those blue chip studs but this is a great teaching lesson for AG and Isaac along with Mo and Markelle who were watching from the sidelines. Fultz is that lottery ticket for better or worse, really hope his issues will be behind him and we will get the true version of Fultz.

Bamba should be much improved. At least from a mental standpoint. I'm sure he has learned a lot
