ahaha (sry heez)

The Heat won the 16 pick which slid the Bucks to 17 and therefore keeping their pick. The Bucks representative in attendance screamed "YEAH!" when the Heat won the 16th pick just now. https://t.co/Tx1Nff0jpz

lag∞n, Friday, 13 April 2018 21:45 (one year ago) link

well the hawks lost both coin flips and are now most likely to pick 5th. that plus budenholzer given permission to interview with the suns. offseason is sucking so far.

key word: try

otm. they're going to have to attach a pick or useful player to it or take back some bad contracts. or just dupe the kings.

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Wednesday, 25 April 2018 19:12 (one year ago) link

how about whiteside for tyson chandler and change? feel like that would be good for both teams. whiteside was born to be a sun

we cn only pray for a huge personality conflict between bron and ben

im really not enthused abt the carpet bagger lebron james interfering with the celtics rightful 2019 nba championship

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:23 (one year ago) link

sixers need to wait their turn

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:23 (one year ago) link

celtics prob in that second tier even if bron doesn't go to philly tbh

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:24 (one year ago) link

celtics won 55 and have significant improvements baked in already before making any moves

ciderpress, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:35 (one year ago) link

they'll be great in the regular season for sure

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:37 (one year ago) link

they will prob win next year

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:38 (one year ago) link

three allstars + two soon to be allstars + the best coach, the best defensive team, theyre on the verge of winning a playoff series right now without their best two players with a roster of majority under 25 y/o players and u know danny will do some good low key off season moves at the very least

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:45 (one year ago) link

i think this was supposed to be the year they go for brow but the pels didn't crash and burn again

yeah it will be interesting, I think they lack the star power to really be on the houston/GSW level when the playoffs come but they're just below

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:50 (one year ago) link

depends on the leaps the young guys make

808s & Deep States (voodoo chili), Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:53 (one year ago) link

generally the nba is about star power but thats not the only way to do it, these celtics are kinda like a detroit style ton of really good players who play well together a, except they have more star power, theyre like detroit with more stars, bout to stomp all over the flawed lakers (rockets, dubs)

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:54 (one year ago) link

brown and tatum are so far ahead of the curve and theyll be better next year, its kinda funny how everyone is just accepting that they shd beat the bucks even tho the celtics are missing their best two players and the bucks have an mvp candidate, what other team wld be in this series w/o their best two players

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:56 (one year ago) link

if bron leaves cleveland and doesn't go to the sixers i still think i'd have boston as the favorites

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:57 (one year ago) link

we also still take embiid's health for granted. if anything happens to him the sixers top out at a second round exit probably.

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:57 (one year ago) link

yeah bron to sixers cld blow up in any number of ways, but cld also be completely unstoppable, i hope it doesnt happen it sounds bad

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:58 (one year ago) link

if bron goes to the sixers they'd be the favorites to make the finals even w/o embiid i think

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:00 (one year ago) link

i still think Bron returns to Cleveland, though it depends on how they exit the playoffs or if they--hear me out--win it all.

in the east or overall? the latter seems premature

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:06 (one year ago) link

praying for the cavs to succeed now

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:07 (one year ago) link

yeah the east obviously xp

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:10 (one year ago) link

this is not directed at anyone here but one thing I think tends to be under appreciated is when teams like boston play well without a superstar player or players, there is only so much improvement possible from re-adding that superstar or superstars. the team dynamics change in ways that compensate for their absence, other players grow into roles, etc. adding these players back is not the same as just adding the value that was missing, it is a proportionately smaller improvement

that said the playoffs is where that will really matter so idk. celtics will def be east favorites next year (pending bron decision part 3) but healthy warriors and rockets teams still seem a cut above to me

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:11 (one year ago) link

we also still take embiid's health for granted. if anything happens to him the sixers top out at a second round exit probably.

― J0rdan S., Thursday, April 26, 2018 12:57 PM (thirteen minutes ago)

yeah for sure

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:11 (one year ago) link

hes good in a lazy midseason game, in the playoffs against a team prepared to exploit his weaknesses hes got a lot of weaknesses

― lag∞n, Saturday, October 13, 2018 12:37 PM (six hours ago)

yes he was also a rookie

k3vin k., Saturday, 13 October 2018 23:01 (one year ago) link

I was listening to the bill simmons over/unders podcast, he's really high on the lakers and thinks they're a lock to be over 47.5 or 48 wins or whatever it is and has them as the #3 seed and...I don't see it. I mean they could do it for sure but if there is anything we have learned about regular season lebron over the past 7 years, particularly in his first season with a team, it is that they do not exceed expectations in the regular season. no way lebron goes hard enough for 82 games for that team to win 50 in a stacked western conference imo

k3vin k., Saturday, 13 October 2018 23:03 (one year ago) link

it is actually gonna be hard for many teams in the west to break 50 kinda like last year, too many good teams that are gonna beat up on each other

k3vin k., Saturday, 13 October 2018 23:04 (one year ago) link

Yeah was listening to the same podcast and I was surprised. I mean they can't really break 48 wins with their current interior defence rotation. Are there any speculated trades to help in that area?

They also won't want LeBron defending the 5 and wearing himself down. Really I would have thought that they should be looking to preserve him for a real run next season (w/ a free agent star signing) and for now develop their younger assets, and if they make the playoffs this year it's a bonus.

Rough win calc:

Bucks: 1/2
Bulls: 2/2
Cavs: 1/2
Celtics: 0/2
Clippers: 3/4
Grizzlies: 2/3
Hawks: 2/2
Heat: 1/2
Hornets: 2/2
Jazz: 1/4
Kings: 3/4
Knicks: 2/2
Magic: 2/2
Mavericks: 2/3
Nets: 2/2
Nuggets: 1/3
Pacers: 1/2
Pelicans: 2/4
Pistons: 1/2
Raptors: 1/2
Rockets: 1/4
Sixers: 1/2
Spurs: 3/4
Suns: 3/4
Timberwolves: 1/4
Thunder: 2/3
Trailblazers: 2/4
Warriors: 1/4
Wizards: 1/2

So maybe they are kind of hovering around as a 47 win team but 3 seed? Nahhh

Not that I want it to happen but just wondering what trade would it take to get Mark Gasol on the Lakers? Esp since he can opt out next year. Grizz could tank pretty effectively without him and I would assume noone is interested in Conley really.

lakers would only trade grizzlies their expiring vets probably which memphis might do to get under the cap or something idk.

21st savagery fox (m bison), Sunday, 14 October 2018 00:44 (one year ago) link

Yeah I just looked on trade machine and Lakers just don't have the salary to do it.

You (bleeping) need me. You can't Finn without me (fionnland), Sunday, 14 October 2018 00:50 (one year ago) link

that would be fine for everyone i think. lakers really need an innings eater at the 5, if they leave the rotation as it is they're adding a ton of unnecessary wear and injury risk to lebron and kuzma and whoever else they use to fill up 26 minutes a nite.
