Power rankings don't seem to be out yet, but I'll update the post when they come out.

Kings looking like they may be able to finally break into the playoffs this year.

Kings shot 49% from the arc ... Davis and Hueter were 12-17.

No wonder they blew up the Nets for 153 pts.

SGA looks like a top 10 player in the league at this point.
Crowder Trade Targets: Kuzma or Avdija, J. Isaac, J. Holiday + Jalen Johnson, Quickley + Reddish, Clarkson and/or Vanderbilt, Barnes + Lyles or Metu or T. Davis, E. Gordon + KJ Martin, Patrick Williams, Oubre, McConnell + Brissett

I hope it lasts past the All-Star break for him this season.

The Celtics synergy reminds me of last seasons Suns team. They look invincible right now, but we’re a long way from April.

The Thunder really collapsed against Boston. They just became a turnover factory in the 4th quarter.

But good bounce back win against Washington. I'm really impressed with how well the Thunder are playing. I hope Presti builds on it (or at least lets it ride) and doesn't make moves the roster to tank for Wembanyama.

Exactly. I think the Cavs are going to course-correct and get back to playing great basketball; they're dealing with injuries but unfortunately that is normal for them. Caris LeVert is going to go down with an injury eventually, unfortunately.

And don't forget about Milwaukee, who still doesn't have Khris Middleton. They're 11-3, beat the Cavs by 15 last night while starting Jevon Carter and MarJon Beauchamp.

I hope we see a fine for Giannis.

Apologies but I'm making another post about this



So no surprise, Harrell is doing "Trezz" things 🤦🏾‍♂️
My thing is the employees,
Are they actually just on their usual schedule taking down the equipment and have to take it down now
Or did they literally say leave the one up "for our guys" but take down the other one

Wondering what further reports come out or the league says something
I know players shooting after a L is very common, have me here wondering if it's always the home team 🤔🤔

Depends on if there's another event they need to breakdown and set up for. Sometimes there may be a concert or something loading in overnight, or there may be overtime pay or it's a Friday night and they want to go home.

If it's a Bucks home game, I could understand his irritation.
But it's in Philadelphia.
He was out of line...

Don't mistreat the staff just because you can't hit free throws. One of the very few times I've seen Giannis not being a nice guy.
