Here's how MIami acquired their key players:

1) Butler - S&T for Josh Richardson (who was a 2nd round pick in 2015)
2) Herro - 2019 #13 overall
3) Adebayo - 2017 #14 overall
4) Robinson - UDFA
5) Nunn - UDFA
6) Dragic - Trade for 2 future 1sts
7) Olynyk - FA
8) Jones Jr. - Street FA
9) Iguodala - Trade
10) Crowder - Trade

They built a better team than ours with ZERO top 10 picks. Compare to the assets blown by our front office in the last 4 years.

First class organization from top to bottom.

At this point I want Butler to win Finals MVP. Show this trash organization how idiotic they are.

I'm rooting for Butler game winners every night. Jimmy's departure still needs to be a bigger story. Not enough heads have rolled.

The lakers (or clippers) will still win the nba title. Let’s not kid ourselves here. Plus it’s the bubble.

Miami Heat were not a good road team all season. I doubt they would have gotten out of the second round in traditional setting

They are playing well in neutral settings though.

But top end talent still prevails in nba year after year. Very few times in past 40 years has a team won a title with 2 sure fire top 1-15 talent. 2004 pistons and 2011 Mavericks and maybe 2014 spurs with aging Tim Duncan and rising k Leonard are the exemptions.

Talent may bail them out but I bet the clippers wished they had a real center right about now.

Pandemic P is, wow, not great.

Well I guess I'm now Nugs fan #1. This doesn't bode well for them just ask the Sixers and the Flyers and the Phillies and the Eagles...

remember when people wouldnt have traded simmons for murray?

what a joke

scoring > EVERYTHING else in the nba

just incredible how much we have screwed our future building around 2 centers, on of which plays pretend PG and wont shoot, in a league designed to phase out centers

insane

I'm trying so hard to make myself stay with this team despite never being to philly and following this team because of Iverson.. but every single day that goes by brings me closer. I am so disgusted in everything this **** ass org has done since hinkie.

I cant describe how stupid it is to be building around ben **** simmons. a player in 2020 that REFUSES and CANT shoot the basketball, and building around 4 pf's and centers in the starting 5.

ugh i hate this team so **** much

Unbelievable that Denver, of all teams, came back from 3-1 down to beat the Clippers after coming from 3-1 down to beat the Jazz.

I haven't lived in Philly in 20 years and just for one year, I wanna go full Yankees, Lakers, (never dallas), Alabama and just experience happiness. I never will but man, front running must be so freeing.

I'm picking the Lakers but who knows with this bubble nonsense. LA/Denver has 40% Laker fans at the Denver games now it's just weird.

Had not watched the games today do to time difference (stupid croatian philly supporter :D). I see Nuggets again using rare air in the mountains for their advantage :D. One thing I really like in today's NBA is tat skill beats athleticism (and I always liked skill more than raw physicality). I hope someone in our front office notice that and stop using ruler as the penultimate criterion for judging players.
