Happy to see Portland beat Miami. I think it was a good call to send Dame to the line. CJ after the game spoke highly of his outgoing teammates, said Hood is a good guy and a funny dude. And he's excited for Norm coming.

I just wonder if Norm will start along with that dynamic backcourt.

Celtics fans seem to be divided on their TDL. I thought they got Fournier for a pretty nice price. I would’ve kept Theis though but I understand it was due to finances more than his play, but that’ll hurt them. Unless they end up signing Olynyk.

Sixers fans seem to be disappointed as well but most of them seem to understand why Morey didn’t pay up for Lowry, I think they’ll change that tune if they end up disappointing in the playoffs.

sixers will feel the 'missing out on lowry' more than heat. Lowry + Embiid could've spammed pick and rolls all day long. on the heat, he's just an upgrade over Dragic.

Obviously need to give teams with new players some time, but the Bulls are currently down big to the Spurs while allowing them to shoot 60% from the floor. Vucevic is a game-worst -29.

New York just lost their center to A broken foot. But they are about to beat Milwaukee.

I think Charlotte, New York, and Atlanta will all fall.

Then again, Boston and Miami have been pretty bad lately.

The season is just so weird. I still think With our easy schedule coming up, we can make some serious ground.

I agree and have been saying that since before the Utah game. Even though we're 1-4 with a few close losses since then, this team seems primed for a run with games against the Pistons/Thunder/Warriors/Wizards/Lakers without LeBron+AD/Bulls/Cavs/Knicks/Hawks/Spurs/Magic/Thunder coming up after tomorrow. Not sure if we can pull off a win tomorrow, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if we went something like 10-3 before the Nets game on April 21st.

On the other hand, I wouldn't be upset if we continued to lose close games and find ourselves more than 10 games under .500 when the schedule gets generally tough for the last for the last month. This team is just so unpredictable with the question marks at C and the bench scoring. I really don't want to see us go 7-6 or 8-5 in this next stretch because that would keep us in contention for a play-in game spot. If we're going to start winning more again, we better be reeling off wins and climbing towards a top 4/5 seed lol.

i still don't understand that trade. give up your future prospects and picks just to cement your status as a treadmiller at best.
with no defense with lavine/vucevic they're now the next t-wolves.

Zion is special.

Such a bad built team around him though.

Drummond to the Lakers, to the surprise of no one. It's a broken system when top teams with no assets can simply sign a starting center for 800k mid-season while giving up nothing.

Bulls vs GSW game is good. No way I'd trade Wiseman. He makes them fun to watch. They might not even be in a rush to trade Wiggins judging by that turn around fade away shot. I've always been a fan of that shot when it works.

Bulls are looking like a team. Low key the Eastern team I'll be rooting for. Non-Raps. Theis was a nice get.

Trading for Aaron Gordon was such a great move.

It moved Milsap to the bench and defenses have to think about a dynamic player who plays off-ball now.

The Raptors need to get more talent to put Siakam in a similar position.
"I definitely knew he traveled, but I didn't know they were going to call it. That was one of them situations in which a great player made a move...and they called the call. And I was like, 'Oh, man, there is a God.'

Len was 5/6 tonight, getting a 10 and 5 and a +4 in 21 minutes of a 10 point loss to Charlotte. Hard to get more rebounds with Westbrook there scooping them up.

Len's is now rocking a 17 PER (Baynes is 10.5). I think the Raps must have realized Len was too good and would disrupt the tank. j/k, but it's amazing how all so many incorrect player drafting/acquisition/re-signing decisions accumulated in a single year. I guess it all evens out in the long run - or as Daryl Morey would say, regresses to the mean. As in the stock market, the geniuses are right 55% of the time. And Masai's track record is way better than that, while Morey has never won a championship.
