No Isaac, no Fultz. Wow.

Anthony is going to have to show out now. We're also going to need our bench and role players to continue to play well, because these injuries really hurt.

All left knees.

Maybe just put braces on the rest of the guys left knee's to stop whoever is stabbing the Magic voodoo doll...

In a society full of professional victims, I really hate to whine.

But come on man, this isn't fair.
11/18/2017 - I have officially disowned Nikola Vucevic and branded him a loser.

- Skal Labissiere was my guy in 2016 pre-trade. Whoops, but I still believe.
- Malik Monk was my guy in 2017. Whoops(?)
- Mo Bamba was my guy in 2018. TBD.

Feel bad for him. He'll probably miss the beginning of '21-'22 too. I can't recall a team losing two of its young players with most promise to ACL tears at the same time.

I do.
That was when we got beat by the Hawks in 2011 and I knew our golden days were over.
I stayed depressed at home for about one week.
But I have grown up and feel less attached to those kind of things so I will be ok this time.

Now there is really no point to watch. Let’s get a top 3 pick.

No. Winning culture will miraculously grant us the next LeBron or Luka... it’s like arguing with people that don’t understand science.

To me this is worse than when we lost dwight

Isaac is out for the year and has shown hes extremely fragile\injury prone
Fultz now has his second major injury (TOS), and this one is the knees, which is especially bad for a player like fultz
Chuma is coming off a torn ACL and looking REAL unathletic so far
Bamba is a bust and likely wont finish the season on the team (bet he'll be traded for a 2nd round pick which we will trade away on draft day)

Thats suppose to be the future core of this team and at this point, who knows when we will see them all play together at full strength again

and with the way this team is built, and with a 6-2 start, this is likely a 30 win team. So not even a good pick to hope for next year

Future is looking VERY bleak right now

At what point do we sell high on vets knowing the upside players on the team are gone. Gordon, Vuc and Evan should be available. I would keep Ross his contract, skills and leadership work well with the young guys.
