They should just cancel the regular season when they reach march and half of the season is done. Then do the lottery soon after. 8-)

My question is why aren't the players getting the vaccines? I thought they would be high priority.

There would be an outrage. Millionaires skipping the line while everyone else is getting f*cked by Covid.

I'm shocked because it wouldn't be the first time.

James forcing Houston to trade him now and lowering their return, meanwhile Houston pretending they can keep him for the year. Both are trying to screw each others leverage. Its time for Masai to work his magic, Houston probably doesn’t want to send him to his preferred destinations.

He looks fat af(by NBA standards). The dude has basically given up on his team. John Wall seems super frustrated.

Man.. im too far invested in our team long term but I get Harden and his talent is hard to find. Fortunately the raps haven't helped themselves for trades but are def looking to tank this year.

ya thats why i'm saying you either get Harden and let Masai work his magic or you go full dump and trade Norm and Lowry before they get hurt. FVV and Siakam haven't shown enough by themselves to let this team be good by any means as much as people keep saying "this team won't suck enough even with FVV and Siakam" - bruh we're 2-8 with Lowry FVV and Siakam, and Lowry's been probably the most impactful player so far. i think the team will be bad with just FVV and Siakam.

Lost in the COVID/James Harden/ Capitol riots of the past few weeks is Kyrie Irving going AWOL. What the heck is up with him? He’s basically gone from championship winning superstar player to unreliable malcontent in only a few years. I don’t see him lasting in this league for too long, hope he gets the help he needs.

Masai too smart to get sucked into Harden trade... look for trade deadline deals for Lowry and norm... picks in return. Plus our high pick... build around pascal, Fred, boucher.... our picks, plus a free agent.... 2022 looks good. Lot better than BUCKS!

they still have Giannis. Raps only better than the bucks if we have Kawhi. we ain't better than the Celtics, 76ers, Bucks, Nets, Heat, Pacers. Raps probably going to lottery next year too if we don't find a player as impactful as Lowry + center.

"We wanna play the game ... but I don't understand some of the rules," Hill said. "We can sweat 48 minutes with a guy next to us for 48 minutes, but we can't talk to them afterwards. It makes no sense."


Interesting point.
