    You are right. I am irrational with regard to just one player in the NBA and that is Wade. I would like to exchange jerseys with him and dip mine in poison oak and porcupine quills before handing it over.

    Brooklyn taking advantage of a great scheduling spot at home. Up 20 on Denver early 3rd.

    Milwaukee has a better record than Golden State.

    KD dominates an undermanned Spurs team on the floor (23 pts on 9-13 fg / 8 reb / 9 ast / 3 stl / 0 tov, +28 in 29 minutes), then — after a nine-day media blackout — proceeds to unload on Ethan Strauss and the media in the postgame presser.

    Probably not gonna help his cause, but I feel his frustration about the amount of time Ethan and co. spend gossiping like schoolkids about unknowable offseason plans as opposed to, you know, basketball.

    This was awesome too!! KD pretty much owned them and called out the local media for their childish games.

    LeBron picked all of the pending Star FA (Kyrie, Klay, KD, and Kahwi) plus AD on his team for the ASG. Can’t make it up.

    I was thinking he would pass on Kyrie, if only to keep him away from AD

    their starting 5 is a brutal matchup for the Celtics

    Philly starting 5 is beastly, but the bench is brutal. Evening shortening to an 8 man rotation, who off the bench do you actually want playing 18 minutes a night in the playoffs?

    Sixers played 10 guys in first quarter. Brett has got some stuff to figure out. The 10th guy, Korkmaz, looked great.

    I kind of like the Sixers’ bench upgrades. Guys like McConnell, Boban the Destroyer, Ennis, Scott, Simmons, Bolden, etc. can all play in this league. I think the harder part for them is figuring out who to go with.

    All of them have their uses, but at the same time, do you look at any of them and say “that’s a top 7 guy on a finals team”? I’d be happy to have any on my bench, but none as my first guy off the bench...

    I think that’s a fair question. And right now, they don’t have anyone to guard the smaller, quicker guards, which could be an issue with some combination of Kyrie, Lowry, and Bledsoe looming.

    Denver is a good team. They can give anyone, including the Warriors, a hard time.

    But here is where the Nuggets fall short - they really don't have a closer. Murray could be that guy but he isn't there yet.

    Doris Burke said Embiid was a doubtful participant tonight. Brett Brown did not say why. He looks gassed. Maybe a bug.

    I love me some IT more than just about anyone in this forum. But color me skeptical that he will have much for this team.

    Simmons is so confounding. If he could just shoot he would be a top 10 player or maybe more.

    The West is weak if Denver is a 2 seed. The Nurkic trade is going to haunt Denver for years. Can't believe they have to play Plumlee in crunch time.

    The 76ers defense is really damn good with all that length.

    Would normally be Millsap. He’s missed the past couple games with an ankle injury.

    And, wasn’t part of the reason they traded Nurkic because him and Jokic didn’t work on the court at the same time?

    If Redick gets a ring with the 76ers, is he going to the HOF?

    It’s been said a million times but this April/May is going to be so incredibly awesome with Milwaukee, Toronto, Philly, and Boston all having Finals caliber teams. And would have been 5 had Oladipo not gone down.

    Assuming IND drops out of the top 4, 4 of the 15 playoff series look potentially awesome to me, the final four in the East and the Finals. I guess that some of the other West series might be fun too, but the gap between GS and the rest of the West just continues to widen.

    The sixers can get so big, I think at one point the lineup had the smallest guy as Ennis at 6'7"

    Tobias really makes a difference with the spacing and his switchability was really on show in the clutch.

    The bench is still an issue, but there are NBA players at least

    Yeah Nurkic is playing great got Portland but he’s slow. Plumlee is a better passer & more agile. I think him & Jokic work great together. Denver is a lot of fun to watch. Jokic my fav non Celtic he’s a joy.

    Embiid is battling some illness; broadcasters mentioned he wasn't earing much/keeping food down.

    Yes was impressed with defense. There were communication issues which were to be expected but it also looked like they can lock teams down. Simmons is going to have run around with a lot of water bugs.

    fake edit: they should hire Boeheim and run his 2-3.

    I'd guess it's OKC and HOU at #2-3 in the WC when it's all said and done. Cream rises, etc. And I think either of those teams has potential to make the Ws sweat a little in the WCF. Also, if they face each other, it'd be a potentially amazing series.

    But yeah, on paper, the second and third rounds in the East have potential to be some of the best, most evenly-matched series in recent memory.
