sixers. Simmons will lock Tatum up the way he's playing.
Embidd will feast on Theis and kanter.

Tobias, richardson, horford are a bit worse than rusty kemba, jaylen, and smart. But stars win games in the league and that currently favors sixers' dual.

Demar's definitely going to be on the trade block if he opts in for next year.

Spurs seem to have wayy too many good young guards.

And Purtle looks like he's gonna be a solid new age center. The only young guy out of the ones we dealt, that I miss.

I don't see a resolution.

Bucks remain pretty terrible without Giannis on court. They’re about to cost the Raps the 2nd seed.

How is Boston even getting these calls in a neutral environment?

Tatum’s soft finesse jumper game tends to fail against good defensive teams. I’m still taking Siakam over him.

Tatum went 2/18 from the field lol.

Man I tuned in for the last 4 minutes of this game. Two commercial breaks and two video reviews later....

The NBA really hasn't improved the pace of the final minutes at all

Miami is looking really really good man. I know Denver have lost a lot of guys, but still.

They got really good defense with guys like reignited Crowder, Igoudala, Butler.. then Nunn and Herro. Adebayo is a beast and perhaps their best player.

Wooo. Wana avoid these guys if possible.

Heat just took over the game.

But Denver is missing their starting backcourt
