Surprised they didn't wait to see how Lauri Markkanen panned out first.

He's been without basically 2 or 3 starters all season with out Marks, Portis, and even Valentine. So, not sure what success any coach would've had.

Heck without 2 ALL-STARS, the Warriors are mediocre with "JUST" Durant and Klay around.

Spo is going through the same thing. Team is barely .500 but we've missed Waiters for a year and change, Dragic, and James Johnson.

MEMEMElo is a Bull. But, it'll be brief.

Bulls are full zero wins for Zion. But I can't blame them. Worst case you get RJ or one of the other studs if you don't win the lottery.

I want to believe there's hope with the Bulls in Zach, Dunn, Carter Jr., and Marks...but, something is just not right with them perpetually. Is it their bench? Like, there's talent in the 4 I named...but, yet...they can't win.

He recovers fully (& they convince him to stay long-term), will be an amazing player for us. Wasn't a high risk trade either. Best of luck to Knicks' plans. We've failed miserably banking on our cap space attracting free agents, but NY is a huge market. I would be surprised if they pulled off Kyrie & Durant like projected.

Damn finally some shifting. I hope Knicks get some players so I can go see them since I'm always up there lately. I like the move for Dallas too. KP is great and plays the style of the new NBA big man where he can shoot outside. Love Luka's game. Plus Tim Hardaway Jr is a nice player. The DeAndre story is very interesting between him almost going to Dallas the first time and then getting traded almost immediately.

Hearing the Knicks will likely cut Wes & DeAndre to make more room. Surprising there's a ton of rumors for where Wes ends up next from back to Portland, Toronto, Sixers, to the Warriors. Did none of these guys see how he played for us with $18 million/year?

Looks like Knicks are going all-in in trying to get Kraft Dinner. But, we'll see...all I know is no one is going to Chicago so, FML.

The Durant luring, I could see. Giant market, already has 2 (probably 3) championships by then, see if he's really ready to lead his own team. Kyrie flip-flops though with his emotions, hard guy to invest solely in. Kemba Walker may be a better guy to push for.

Well if the deal goes through you can pretty much call the Lakers the Los Angeles James Davis.

It is crazy how many people they’re willing to give up. Playoff Rondo, kuzma, Ingram, Beasley, Stephenson, 2 first round draft picks and Ball (let him go)

I don't think Ball helps Phoenix. They need Ayton to develop and add a dude to go with Booker and Jackson

6ers look good with their additions. But, Raptors get Marc Gasol. So, this should be an interesting remainder to the season to see who comes out on top...

No one is beating the Warriors though.

I haven't heard shit about the C's this year. Been all Raptors and 6ers making noise so second half should be interesting. I guess biggest trade was 6ers/Clips deal. Maybe 6ers break into top 3. Pacers gotta go down with Oladipo out.

Westbrook traded at the NBA allstar draft so he can be teamed up with Embid.

I thought they were cool now since the last allstar game. They played together there.

Those two do not like each other. It's like Isaiah Thomas and MJ if not worse...

Can you technical/flagrant foul your own teammate?

Like, if Embiid took out Westbrook for a flagrant, would their team...shoot free throws and have possession?

Fakers got cooked today in Philly.
​​​​​​

Considering they still don't have many set plays since they haven't had more than a couple formal practices as a team. Future looks very bright if this is what they do before they get acclimated with each other.

Harris seems to be a good fit for them. Makes things interesting in the east finally

I watched a quarter of Dallas/Houston last night. Jesus Christ Luka is special. I can't believe he's so young and so good. Dude reminds me of Magic.
