It's Glenn's speciality. It's going to happen at some point here.

We have 5 guys scoring in double digits while limiting the Bulls to less than 100ppg on 41FG%, we are on the right track.

Once we can confidently win games without relying too much on Ben and Tobi, it’s going to be beautiful

I believe we have solved our haunting bench issues somewhat, it’s deep so there’s a lot of guys to throw out there.

Not convinced on Doc, but that’s neither here nor there. Glad Curry found form lately adds another string, and hopefully Tobi gets back to being a 20ppg scorer for this duration.

This looks like an old fashioned Superstar surrounded by a support cast, just need to fully round it out. Definitely should experiment with different lineups now to get a look in.

I mean ECF I’m happy with then it’s up in the air from there. Probably have to shift the role players around and ride whoever is hot that night so weird statlines may occur, one night someone goes for 20, then a different person shoots 4+ threes kinda deal.
Our role players are kind of variance based anyway.

Pretty convinced Washington is going to be in the play-offs and probably our first competition?

Another team with a weak C depth. But Gafford is no slouch.

I hope we face hornets in the first round then either Knicks or Hawks in the second round.

Then I’d rather face the Nets than the Bucks.

Slow down Giannis and the Bucks are proven losers.

The nets... who knows what they can do.

Unfortunately, blown 3-1 leads are just the tip of the Glenn's chokeberg.

"For good measure, we should also note: Rivers also holds the record for most Game-7 losses with eight. No other coach has more than five such defeats. What’s more, he has now also lost an astonishing six playoff series after his teams have had a 3-2 lead, a feat that is almost hard to fathom."

Hopefully, he's learned something from all this.

I missed this game, but judging from the box score I have two observations:

- I love how very productive, but incredibly analytically inefficient Tobi's shots were. 1 FTA, 0 3FGA, 21 points 76% FG. 0 threes with Ben Simmons and Embiid playing 33 minutes each. It's like an exaggeration of his offensive game. Glad he bounced back.

- Back to back on the road and we're playing all our starters 30+ minutes? I guess our bench must have been tragic last night.

One of those game 7s was with a 4 seed that went to the NBA finals (beating a 61 win Lebron-led Cavs team in the process).

Another one was against that Magic team that made the finals and Garnett was injured for the whole playoffs

Another one was a 5 seed that took 3 games off the Lebron Heat.

Another one Blake got hurt 3 games into the series.

Im not gonna go through each one and the Nuggets and Rockets losses were each bad but if you’re getting to the point where you are losing a game 7 to a good team you are probably doing something right to get to that point.

He’s also won game 7s against teams that had Steph Curry and Lebron James on them as well as that Spurs team with Duncan and Kawhi the year after they won the title.

He also won a ring with a team that beat teams led by Lebron, Dwight and Kobe in the process.

Play enough big time series and you’re going to lose some of them.

He's an unpolished kid in year 2 that just turned 21. By the time he's Seth Curry's age, he's going to be a several time 20+ ppg scorer by then.

I also think Coby White is good so he probably isn't.

Can create, shoot and pass and doesn't have bad off the court stuff. Pretty safe bet to be a fantastic player by his mid-20s.

Naaah. I'd rather spend a top 8 pick on a 15ppg, player who has a worse TS%, worse 3pt%, worse FTr, worse PER, and is overall worse than Shake Milton, who is nothing but a 3rd guard who was picked in the 2nd round. Coby White also scores 2 ppg more than Shake Milton, while only playing 7 minutes more every game. So there's that...

Okay, let's wait until Coby White is 24 and then compare him to Shake Milton's current numbers.

I don't get what you want teams to spend top 10 picks on. PFs that can't create or defend? You draft in the lotto to find creators to carry your offense. Otherwise, you're just wasting picks.

We should target these combo guard scorers who can shoot in the draft, even if they’re seniors. You have a very high chance of getting the next CJ McCullom.

That said, sell high on Milton. We can get a better version in every draft.

Milton is a better shooter. But Milton has the ball handling skills of Mike Scott or Anthony Tolliver, and that makes the biggest difference. It also stunts any projections of Milton has over White.

Im not saying Milton is a bad player. He’s a good one and I’d like to get a better player in return if I have that chance.

I’d trade Milton and a pick (our first is more like a second rounder) for White or Garland.

I still don't know why the Bulls or the Cavs would do this. It's not like it's adding to a win now mentality nor is it a smart rebuild. The only value Milton would yield would be a disgruntled young player, a team that wants to give up on a headcase (a la Kevin Porter), or in a package for a bigger trade. Otherwise, it doesn't really make sense for the other team.
