Guys, have you seen Crowder playing for Miami? Such a nice addition of the bench.
Imagine having him along with Favors and Kyle of the bench? Pipedream...

Memphis looked like they had taken control of the race for eighth at the All Star break, but much like the Jazz, they came out of the AS break and laid an egg --- losing five games in a row. Now the Pelicans are within two games of the Grizz and are favored to pass them up. I think it would be fun to watch a Laker - Pelican first round matchup. Zion is off to an incredible start.

The Blazers are expected to get Lillard back March 2, then get Collins and Nurkic back on March 15, so maybe they can stay in the race for eighth as well. Those latter two players are going to be really rusty though. Sacramento has gone on an impressive 7-3 run over the last ten and may be another challenger for eighth. And maybe the prideful Popovitch will keep the Spurs in the race for eighth. But assuming good health, I am favoring the Pelicans for eighth.

The Pelicans play the Jazz at Vivint on March 13. We haven't played against Zion yet. The Pelicans were already a challenging team for us without Zion, so I am expecting this home game to be a really tough challenge.

Rubio's already got a triple double going against the Bucks today at the end of just three quarters: 17 points on 12 attempts, 10 assists and 11 rebs. Congratulations Ricky!

Dont know why I feel this way, but it is nice seeing Westbrooks Rockets behind Pauls Thunder in the standings today. Even if it is by just a half game.

Wow, NBA meeting to consider playing without fans. Honestly, probably the responsible thing to do as much as it will definitely change the playoff atmosphere. I mean the NCAA just did it - NBA will look irresponsible if they don't.

NBA suspended the season. At least this way we won't get booted in the first round.

So, will the new draftees get to play in games in July and August this year as the NBA season winds up?

So, with pretty much a sports free world the next few weeks, what do people like to binge watch on Netflix?

I'd like to see us give Shane Larkin a contract next season, see if his Euroleague season was for real.

I'd much rather give that contract to Scottie Wilbekin.

Either one works for me. Wilbekin has better physical tools, obviously. Larkin looks a bit better than Trey Burke, to me, which seems like a solid backup.

And he even changed his profile picture to him wearing a Celtics uniform but with a face mask. Dude is just funny.

Curious to know what everyone thinks of the NBA season picking back up at the end of July and having the finals in October.

At this point, I would just rather them scrap this season and start as normal as possible next season.

Yeah, what happens to the subsequent seasons? Is this a permanent change to the season? If not, how's that going to work?

I think they are better off just scrubbing the whole thing.....
