He couldn't even beat a 45-year-old Dragic off the dribble last night. The only thing he can really do is settle for long contested jumpers.

After that year he had as a legitimate top 20 player, he hasn't been able to stay healthy and one of the injuries he suffered was major. People seem to be forgetting that.


He looks like that for year and half now. Last year he played 36 games and averaged 18 points on 42% FG (51% TS).
This year was even worst.

He won't get any younger and his health is declining. That's what happends when your game is based on being fastest, most athletic player in the room. It simply does not age well.


Hence, main reason i have zero desire to pay Gordon after his contract is up.

RIP, very sad.

I couldn't believe, he was so young. Just saw he played until his 41 and now dies at 53? That's awful.

Fun to see Tyler Herro looking like exactly what we need and picked 3 picks before Chuma. WeHam probably wouldn't have grabbed him, though, with his tiny wing span.

Chuma can shoot too, you know. He can also pass and post up. And that’s not counting his defense.
Remember when Kobe elbowed Jameer in the chin so hard Jameer was knocked down and sent skidding across the floor?

Miami has rebuilt how many times already while we are languishing in limbo.

I was glad to see the dueling flops by Paul and Harden ignored. I swear it's too bad they couldn't both lose that series

I love Steve Nash. My favorite non-Magic player in history. I hope it works out for him, it would be nice to see him working the sideline.

I'm not a fan of D'Antoni but as a Magic fan, I can't help but salivate at the thought of Howard, Rondo, LeBron and Vogel all underachieving in a Laker uniform.

Hope the Rockets boot them out the playoffs.

I gotta feel like, if Milwaukee get knocked out here, it might force Milwaukee to chase a big move to convince Giannis to stay. Finding him a closer and 1/b option.

Not sure how they do it with their motley crew of players. Not much trade value in there. Bledsoe + DiVincenzo/Lopez for something? Maybe strike gold with the MLE?

What a diastrous 4th quarter that was. 40-13 4th quarter, Giannis is leaving.

yeah, i'm almost ashamed to admit how emotionally invested i am in seeing bron, lamont howard and their hack-loser coach all fail miserably in these playoffs. i just don't see it happening against houston. westbrook and harden are just too unreliable.
