we got a Win!!!!! kids looked good last night. IF they work with that kid Zubac he can be a really good big man. That secondary unit for the spurs last night was horrible, without the claw and crew, they really suffer.

Still got Westbrook as my MVP choice with the Claw in 2nd.

What if LAL gets #1, do they bypass Fultz to draft Lonzo and Lamar Ball instead?

It was a bitch move, but also a smart move. Pop already had benched Leonard, and Warriors were beat up from the road trip. Imagine leaving the west coast saturday, fly to NY, check in to the hotel, practice, go to bed, wake up sunday morning and play NYK at 9:30am ET, immediately fly to ATL, go to bed, wake up Monday, play ATL 1:30pm ET, fly out to Boston after that game, sleep, wake up for practice, sleep, then play BOS Wednesday, fly out to Minnesota immediately after that game, practice, sleep, play MIN on Friday, immediately after that game, fly to San Antonio, wake up and play the Spurs on a national televised game that following day on Saturday. That Spurs game was poorly planned out by the NBA... end of a road trip that's equivalent to flying to china and back (reporters tallied up the miles and it really is equivalent). Even if everyone were suited up to play that day, the effort wouldn't be there. They were half asleep and one step slower than their opponents.

An insider told me that Coach Kerr invited Pop to the team dinner lol They both didn't really care about that game since Pop is the one who started the "resting" of his stars.

I would have benched some for Min and some for SAS. Either way, it ended up being a good game seeing the non-stars duke it out but not the best lineups for casual fans.

Can we really make the H-T brackets interesting this year? I know there were slight strides for it last year but we always end up with boring *** brackets due to nobody sticking their neck out for upsets.

What I'm proposing for each matchup:
- If the higher seeded team wins then 1 point is awarded as normal.
- If the lower seeded team wins then the points awarded will be the ((difference of their seeding) * .5) + 1...
---Example (based on current seeding): MEM (7) takes down SAS (2) then 3.5 points would be awarded for calling it (not a terrible call historically either). Obviously the reward is lower if a 5 seed takes out a 4 as it would only be 1.5 awarded instead of just 1 ((5-4) *.5) +1 = 1.5

Drew, I'll assist with the tallying if this is a pita for you.

Ugh, I just realized we're a month away from moccrxhf coming back.

I want to see that 1on1 game between him and Sircumference Barkley.

Lavar is annoying but man, he's winning the marketing game right now.

Good night for the Lopez boys. Brook gets a buzzer beater for Brooklyn's 3rd win of the year and Robin took a swing.

I'm worried about LAL catching up to Brooklyn in the race to tank now since Brooklyn has zero motivation to lose and LAL has a remaining schedule with a crapload of teams with playoff seeding concerns.

What's the latest on Lowry? Not that I want the C's to see them either way in the second round, but it'd be a shame if he's not back by then.

He should be back for the last game or two of regular season+playoffs.

Such bs though, guy hurts his wrist golfing before all star break, still plays + in the 3 point comp. now he's been out forever and we **** the bed..would have been nice to have him gel with tucker and ibaca before playoffs.

If that happens, I'm sure they'll give CLE some fits, the new additions are solid. I'm open for anybody that will give them trouble. God anybody but another GSW/CLE final, snore.
