The Lakers this summer will end up with a major signing indeed to pair up with Lebron.

The Knicks will get their Celtics PG in the end after all.

Happy to see Magic go and the team he put together that everyone said was garbage (besides the media) go down in flames.

Hope that shine wears off him and we don't see him again for a long time in a front office or tv role. Can't speak, can't manage. He had his run gifted to him over and over post basketball and he proved he doesn't have it... now it's time to retire in the sun.

Blatant push off by Harden which he does all the time.

Every Nuggets fan should be kissing the Paul George ring right now. If they lost that game the Rockets would be the 2 seed.

Doesn't tarnish him in the least.

Any of you care that Bob Cousy's NBA coaching record was dismal? Of course not. Because he did so many other things in other areas right.

Do you guys think that magic's decision will have an effect in possible LA/New Orleans talks at summer?
Is it possible that this move now has to do with the AD trade?

Incompetence & lack of ethics = abject failure.

Go back to “having fun”, you simpleton.

I feel badly for the Fakers. NOT!

For anyone interested (probably very few):

Based on the results of Game 82 tomorrow night:
EC
Celtics v Pacers is the ONLY confirmed match up in the NBA after 81 games.
Nets will finish 6 or 7.
Magic will finish 6 or 7 or 8.
Pistons will finish 7 or 8 or or miss POs.
Hornets will finish 8 or miss POs.
Therefore the match ups for the Bucks, Craps & Sixers remain TBD!
WC
Warriors locked at 1 & Jazz locked at 5.
Nuggets, Rockets & Blazers are in a mess for 2 - 3 - 4. One possibility is a 3 way tie & the tie breakers conflict with each other. LOL.
Spurs, Thunder & Clippers are in a mess for 6 - 7 - 8. One possibility is a 3 way tie.
Therefore, the match ups are completely TBD!

People forget he might retire too, he's getting to that age. 50+ points in a potential last game, jesus.


Kyrie wanted him on the Celtics. Maybe he will get him there next year lol.

Crawford's 51 is the most amazing part of the night - and he'd dropped 27 and 28 in the two games before that.

Dirk's 30 (on 33 shots) a nice send-off. Glad to see Okafor getting more recognition - he's not hugely different from the player Demarcus Cousins was at the same age.

See also Dragan Bender's April box lines, and the three most recent highlights here - http://www.espn.com/nba/player/_/id/4011991/dragan-bender -
