Looks like they need Stacey Abrams to round them up some bodies (too soon?)

To be fair Doc invented some injuries to his starters as a precaution and to protest.

Tacko 50/20 game incoming


Yup. At least our team didn’t pull that cowardly move the Sixers did. Those chumps had Embiid and Simmons available but yet they still tried to fake injuries in an effort to get the game postponed. Losers. If we only had 8 guys left and it included Tatum and Brown, and Brad tried sitting them, I actually think our 2 guys would say “Nah, we are going to play, and we are going to win”. No cowards in our locker room. Embiid and Simmons went along with the ruse like little babies.


Not surprising from Simmons. A little surprised Joel went along.

Well, outside of Nesmith, we legit don't have a SF/big wing right now.

Right. I think that we have to go with Smart, as our PF.
Adn probably Pritchard covering, when Smart is out.

Proposed Rotation vs Heat:
Teague - Pritchard - Nesmith - Smart - Theis
Waters - Edwards - Fall

8 guys. So they have to play about 30 min each.

Pretty much just have to have fun with this. Get out of it injury free, let the young players experiment without fear of being pulled for every mistake. We can definitely still extract some entertainment out of this if we have the right mindset about it.

Yeah Sam Mitchell on NBATV generally annoys me but he made a good point about this. We don't think we have a bench, but now that Brad has to play these guys we might find out we actually do have a bench. And it's great experience for any of the guys who will be in the playoff rotation.

I'll go with 15 and 6-7 isolations.
Good assessment:

We'll be "flowing" on offense.

This is what they signed up for when they refused to do the bubbles. They were given the option of doing mini-bubbles. 2-3 weeks inside, and then return home for 1 week. So, no, not really. This is the risk that they took. Shoot, you think frontline medical workers enjoy going to work during a pandemic?

OK. I have no issue with players selectively taking games off when their entire team gets covid. We're not going to agree on much.

The interest in this random regular season game is very high judging by how long the game thread is pre-tip-off.
