What would be interesting now would be an injury to DAJ such that Davis and Horford both ended up playing center again--despite their switch in teams.

Horford plays for Philly now. You mean Embiid?

They will not.


Lebron and Davis are easily good enough to come out of the West.

Clippers role players are significantly better than the Lakers though. Lakers have no backup bigs when AD rests too (without Cousins).

Clippers, Nuggets, Blazers, Rockets, Jazz, and maybe even the Warriors if Klay comes back early enough, are all much more likely to make the Finals than the Lakers.

Looks like Prokorov is selling his share of the Nets and Barclays because he realizes that this is the highest return he can get for them. Gotta cash out now before the 2 betas ruin the team.

Yup, in 3 years when the nets are the 8th seed and no chance of getting better he'll look smart.

It will be hilarious if the new owner of the Nets falls in love with Kyrie and eventually names him Coach and Director of Basketball Operations.

It can happen! Look at Paul Gaston and ML Carr...

Hard to believe James Young just turned 24 yesterday. I see he has signed to play in Israel this year. He's only four months older than Yabs.

Booker is such a brat. Dude is complaining about getting double-teamed during pick-up. That's how much he hates passing I guess.

“I get that all season long.” Well then this would be a good opportunity to get better in that area of your game.

I laughed so hard at this. Who said the Lakers were still going to the Finals?

Noah is still a functional player, but yeah their options are pretty ugly at C.

He is the ultimate empty calories guy. It is a shame because there's nothing preventing him from being a plus-plus player. I hope eventually he gets into a good environment, learns to D up a bit more like he did at Kentucky, and share the ball better. His abilities off ball are rarer than his iso scoring and with the right coach and right PG he could be a guy who puts up big numbers AND wins games,
