I just love the fact we are discussing which top seed would be best, along with home court for the first two rounds.
It is sooooooo much better than planning when we are going to start to tank and which possible lottery pick we can waste this year.
Man I have missed this!!!
Long may it continue.
Some of the NBA pundits were saying how the Horford rest scenario was unprecedented, and I was thinking, hello? Eric Bledsoe anyone?

From the HS three point line? I’m not impressed.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

Now that the buyout window has closed, I can’t help but feel like we missed an important opportunity to upgrade our big man depth.
You're probably right but I get the impression that Jones had no intention of doing so. I'm a little jealous of Denver and how well Gordon is fitting in there.
He was supposedly talking to Dieng.

We have a pretty critical weakness that will be exploitable in the playoffs.

If Ayton gets in foul trouble against a team like LA, we’re toast against a Davis-Drummond front line.
I think the real question is how those guys match up against M.V. Frank.

I can't even make that many FT's in a row so I'm kind of impressed. Mind you, his form is a little awkward and his release is rushed.
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

And for me this is the one thing that I am not happy with in regards to the front office. We and the whole league know it is our weakest area but we are happy to have 48 swing men on the bench. Paying for one other solid back up could push us through a second round etc.
We will just have to wait and see, and hope....

I am pretty sure SAS did this with Robinson. Part was injury, but also tanking for a high pick.

He is good, just didn't have a lot of help from his coach. I mean, Kliff needs to go.

I disagree. He can’t read defenses for shit, missed a lot of receivers.

He’s an extremely gifted athlete who still needs to learn to study the game the right way.

I don’t think he’s a bust yet, but I’m not convinced he’s our franchise QB. Kliff is also a terrible coach that I’m worried is holding his development back.

Dewayne Dedmon has looked good for the Heat.
