Lebron will have an offseason to master another swindle of a trade.

Denver will have one more season to build off this one.

OKC might just keep Paul and build with him.

Portland will do whatever it takes to destroy Clips.

AND DO NOT FORGET, LUKAAAAAA.

Man, the Clips Window just got a hell of a lot smaller. I don't even know who they can trade at this point to get good players.


Yeah but if Clips lose in the first round next year then Kawhi opts out and he goes to the Lakers. Don’t know if I could stomach an aging Lebron getting a stacked team again so he could ride Kawhi’s coattails to try and catch Jordan. That’s worse than what’s happened now.


A 31 year old Kawhi with a 37 year old Lebron doesn't scare me one bit.

And honestly, I truly believe that the book is closed on Lebron catching Jordan anyways. Lebrons deserves his own category, that's about it.



I’d be a bit scared if those 2 are paired up with AD or Giannis. Players love playing GM so they can stack teams. Lebron would easily take a pay cut to fit two max guys in there. His salary is tip money for him anyways

If the Raps can’t get one of them next year, I hope it happens. It’s about time LeBron benefited from the kind of stacked team MJ had. He’d have a half dozen championships already if Durant didn’t bizarrely join a 73 win team.

I can definitely see the Clippers nabbing Gasol or Ibaka, can we do a sign and trade for Zubac?

I think Gasol would sign for the mid-level exception so ya that's an easy decision. Ibaka I think is still looking for big money...probably 15-20 million a year.

On the Clippers...I want none of their role players...except maybe Landry Shamet...

Gasol is getting more than the MLE if he wants it. He remains a great defender.

unfortunately, I don't see it happening... I think this series will go 4-2 Lakers...it seems they want to award the Lakers another trophy...

As a neutral fan that game was probably one of the most fulfilling upsets since Giants over Patriots in 2007. Combination of the Clippers being full of loudmouth unlikable players, Kawhi losing, and the Nuggets and Jokic's passing making it seem like good over evil team effort

Dallas beating Miami in 2011 was also amazing.

refs will make it very difficult for the Nuggets, especially if they try to get Jokic in foul trouble early, but I think their passing and shooting will always give them a chance.

Kawhi went to the Clippers to spend time with his family. Now he has that opportunity. Enjoy Kawhi.

dont know what to say about Jamal going for 40 on a game 7 against elite defenders and a pest like Beverley.
He has to be in the TOP20 conversation now. damn I wanted LeBron vs Kawhi, but F U Balmer, Frank and overrated Rivers. LeBron does not get upset too many times. Lakers are headed to the NBA Finals.

Then you got Miami and the worst roster in 20+ years (No doubt about it) to make the Eastern Conf Finals..now 9-1 in the playoffs!!!!!!!

The bubble thing has been a total success nevertheless.

In the midst of all this hoopla, just dawned on me the Clippers WERE up 3-1. Blew it.
