Anybody not hopelessly clinging to the past would be. LeBron is the best player in the league at age 36 while literally shattering records and showing no signs of slowing.

If the Lakers gut the team and get Chris Paul, just give them another championship because they can just sign a lot of good vets for the min. They could also use their MLE on say Milsap?

Korver, Dwight Howard, Wesley Matthews, Jeff Green

PG Paul - Cook
SG Matthews - Caruso
SF Lebron - Korver
PF Milsap - Green
C AD - D12

When is the parade? Did I miss it? Laker fans should go get drunk together. All of them. Invite Trump.

Sure, there's a case for BIll and all his winning too. Way before my time. I would wager with Wilt's athleticism he could have been a star in any era. Wilt never won much and was a poor free throw shooter though.

MJ lead the league in 40point games at 40 and was in mvp discussion before he got injured

Man, the GB is unreadable at this point. I'm guessing the average age there is about 20.

Bill Simmons was on Zach Lowe's podcast and they were both saying they think if Giannis leaves the Bucks, he will go to Dallas, Miami or Toronto.

I think Dallas is unlikely. Giannis seems like he wants to be the primary ballhandler/franchise player of a team with good surrounding talent, not join a team with a featured superstar wing and end up being Luka's sidekick.

Celts Russell era had like 7 hof players... its like lebron playing against a team comprised of kawhi, ad, luca, giannis and butler.... that the Celtics dynasty when wilt played... wilt still dominated but could only go so far in the playoffs against such a stacked team..

Wilt by far is the goat.. and STILL OWNS 72 NBA RECORDS... MORE THAN LEBRON AND MJ COMBINED...

draft is nov 18th

FA will be after that(projected dec 1st), as long as they agree to a new CBA. but if reports of them wanting to start season dec 22, they will probably move the FA day up to closer to after draft day. Again if they agree to cba.

I think all discussion of starting the' season from Jan'21 to Aug'21 went up the air due to bad NBA Finals ratings.

What has worked for the NBA before like Oct-June timetable, they will continue with it; It wouldn’t surprise me if the all-star weekend is scrapped from the schedule to complete the season by mid-July maximum (but hopefully they will finish by normal June timetable)

There isn’t a hope for December. The most hopeful I can get is maybe the playoffs and Jurassic Park will be back to normal.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….
