Denver will be lucky to win a game off the Suns. Denver is just not that good. Even with Murray I don’t think they beat Phoenix.

The West champ will provide a road block. The Clippers especially.

I thought Milwaukee was going to be real tough for them. And the Bucks still haven’t shot the ball well. But right now it is certainly looking like Brooklyn in 5 over both Milwaukee and the winner of Sixers/Hawks.

What the 76ers have not even played 1 game in the playoffs against the Nets yet. Brooklyn in 5...no I don't think so, especially if Harden does not play. When the 76ers find a way to lessen the impact of Trae then they will implement the same strategy with Irving. Then it's just Durant you have to worry about every single night (no slight to Joe Harris). IMHO.
Please allow me to introduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste.

You want it to be one way....but it's the other way.

Why do you think the Clippers will come out of the west and if they do, that they will pose a serious challenge to the Nets? They almost lost to Mavs, who were carried by Luka Doncic almost like no other team was carried by a single player in NBA history (he set an all-time record in one game in that series with the number of points contributed to by him vs. the rest of the team). So either he is currently the best player in the NBA or the Clips are going to have some trouble in the following games and further serious trouble in a potential matchup against the Nets.

I don’t know the Clips will win the West, I was just saying any West team will put up more of a fight than the apparently once again fraudulent Bucks or the winner of Sixers/Hawks. I singled out the Clippers because they are the one team that has the star power to match Brooklyn. Unfortunately for them and their fans, that talent just don’t give a **** 75% of the time.

Clippers have the talent to win it all that’s for sure.
They are just flakey at the top not keeping the ship steady.

Luka is the best young player since young Lebron. Dude is on top ten all time trajectory.

Make no mistake that kid with a great team around him would have gone a long long way as early as the bubble.

Yep. Griffin is playing like an all star again so 4 all stars.

They don't play great D but no one will shut them down.

So, without Harden you have Griffin as a third all-star.

1. Who's he replacing on this years All-Star team?
2. Who the 4th all star if you told they're winning it all without Harden?

Luka is immature and doesn’t improve his teammates

Name one Dallas player other than Brunson who has improved

Majority have tanked their value while playing LukaBall

DFS, Powell, Kleber, Hardaway all had career years with the so called “Luka Ball” that media and this forum and you try to believe is true which is downright false. Heck he even made Boban and Cauley- Stein out of everyone look great/playable.

I repeat DFS, Powell, Kleber and Hardaway. Well what do you know the whole starting unit. And Zingis when he wasn’t sooking. Dude has already propped up players for over a year now and he’s only 22.

Weak as piss Zingis when he wasn’t sooking they looked like a legit top 4 side. They shot 40% from three besides himself and Zingis and when Luka was on the bench the whole team shot sub 40% overall.

Stop this drivel he’s the best young player since young Lebron. Luka is a generational talent. He carries as well as anyone already since his second year.

You think the Mavs support cast is any good? It’s worst than ours and we struggle at times worse then the Mavs do.

Hardens best player he ever played with pre Nets was post prime ATG CP3. And ran the gauntlet to 7

Must be nice to have Klay, Draymond, Iggy, Durant

Media got people believing in Bulldust.

Luka with another All NBA player is a contender no if’s and buts about it.

If you even bothered to check the starters that he plays with their 3 ball % and basically their FG percentage (which goes up well good) it’ll end the Luka Ball discussion quick smart. Once again this Kid is a literal prodigy.

I can't believe there are narratives surrounding Luka Doncic being a bad teammate.

Oh wait, yes I can. This is the Internet.

this is what happens when a young star doesn't win...it is always his fault logic be damned.

HOWEVA

there is some slight merit to it. Its hard to get into a flow when one guy is in control of the ball at all times. It happens here with Embiid in which sometimes we just sit an watch him go to work with no movement and hope for the best. Its why he dropped 40 and 10 last night but it was Shake getting loose that won us the game. Basketball is a team sport.

howeva howeva

Dallas role players were dogwater outside of THJ occasionally so they can kick rocks in that regard lol

Dallas roster is terrible, bro.

Porzingis is one of the worst lockerroom guys in the league.

Come on. Guy is a very good defender, stop it.
His block on Kawhi was incredible.
