In the east, none of the 1st round matchups seem interesting to me...

Probably going to see the top 4 get through pretty easy. Those 3/6 and 4/5 matchups could have been good, but injuries have kinda wiped out Philly and Indy a bit.

So is his wife.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

I still think the stars sit for Mavs tmr being locked into 7th so this time tomorrow we might very well be cursing Boban (well or DA) if he plays 24-28mins against us

Man, I just looked her up. Seems like he could accidentally break her.

Milwaukee only listed Matthews and Ilyasova on injury report. So not resting Middleton/Bledsoe/Brook. Very good news. Of course they could still limit minutes.

Which is why he was traded for cash considerations

Exactly, and why while the rest of nba nation makes fun of us for the trade, hardly any suns fans miss him at all.

You know that trade is laughable, and it has nothing to do with fans missing him.
