Brooklyn closing with Mike James right now against Milwaukee in a close game.
Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

the more comments I see about the Play In, I think people hear one game knockout like March Madness and think it is like 7 vs 10 and 8 vs 9 to see who makes the Playoffs. The higher seed getting two chances to win 1 while the lower seeds have to win 2 straight, I just don't see what's unfair to anyone involved (if you lose the two straight you probably don't deserve to be in :? )

Yeah, I agree. If you're 7 or 8, you have to lose two games to get ousted from the playoffs. That's pretty unlikely to happen. Probably the play-ins will be dull and mostly the 7-8 will just end up staying as they are.

It’s not designed to knock out the 7-8 seeds, but to give more teams a reason to keep playing hard: Most likely #6 needs to keep running just to stay away from it, #7 to catch #6, avoid the play-in and get some rest, #8 and #9 always been there, but #10 and lower (likely all the way to #12) get a chance for a ticket out of non-playoffs failure. If records are close, you can even drag #5 to the fight or make it a run out of the play-in between 6-8.

That and some rest to the top seeds, makes it worthy to me.

I don't know much about this guy, but it's a savvy move by the Knicks. They locked him up but the contract is non-guaranteed. Maybe they won't be going all in for Lonzo Ball after all?
