Can't really blame anyone on the Raps for this win. I hope the Lakers slide into the play-in games and win them only to get knocked out of the 1st round for this embarrassing performance.

U mad bro???!? Cuz you seem mad bro. Lowry and siakam definitely on team compete. Lowry shoeing out for free agency...and for a shoe deal I guess? Nick Nurse appalled by the two and probably listens to roger lajoie during half time. Siakam showing he can carry an offensive load.

I miss baynes. We're competing.

We're probably making too big of a deal between the 7 slot and the 8 slot. We're talking about a difference of like 4% in the chance of getting a top 4 pick between those 2 positions.

I mean....you could very well see the 8th slot get the #2 pick and the 7 slot get the 8th pick.

I guess you just have to scout better and hope the other's don't.

You have to figure it's more likely to have 1 team reach for a player to drop a player out of the top 5 than having 2 teams go crazy. Like could Kuminga drop all the way to 7 or 8? Can't assume a Haliburton will drop all the way to #12.

I double-checked....the difference is actually 6%. It still probably doesnt justify my obsession with scoreboard watching. As long as we dont get 9 or higher I will be pleased.

Kaminga ain't dropping. Tbh....in watching hilites I find him to be better than Green. Green has alot of dunk hilites with noone near him which has never impressed me. Kaminga's the better defender and also creates from nothing more from what I can tell.

I guess his shooting is a question but his stroke doesnt look that bad. I guess his percentages havent been too good but he has much better form than siakam for example.


Og, siakam, fred and Kuminga might be one of the best defensive 4somes in the league. Might not be a popular move but I could see the raps taking Kuminga over suggs.

Brogdon and Lamb are questionable for tonight's Pacers-Wizards tilt. I think we should direct our psychic energy towards helping the Wizards win, and tying the Pacers' win total at 31. I want the play-in to be pretty much out of reach by the time we play the Wizards on Thursday. That will be a B2B for the Wizards. They play the Bucks the night before. If they somehow win, and Raps lose to the Clippers, then that puts Wizards at 32 wins and Raps at 27 wins, with five games to go. Raps have the tie breaker, but have a slightly harder schedule the rest of the way. Wizards get another game against the hapless Cavs.

I have no hope for the Bulls. Vuc is out, and Sixers are clobbering the Bulls 10 minutes in. What a mess.

Bulls really botched their future for Vucevic. That’s one of dumbest trades in recent years

Bulls board has embraced the tank for the small chance of retaining 2021 FRP.

7th pick looks very likely as well.


Pistons won't win the last game of the year and lose the #2 pick. bulls will win. We just have to lose every game out.

Pelicans playoff hopes may have been buried tonight with that loss to GS. I expect them to embrace the tank, and may not have a choice anyway with 5 road games in a row, all vs. good teams with varying levels of seeding incentive. I've been expecting 8-10th for a while, and now I wouldn't be surprised if the Raps finished tied with one or both of the Kings/Pels.

The Bulls were never a serious threat in the first place. The whole FO should be fired for poor management.
