Surely Kawhi doesn't miss even more playoff games as a Clipper, right?

Who would have thought a team of Durant/Booker/Beal would end up as fodder?

Miami doesn't have much of a chance without Jimmy Butler. Apr 18: The Heat announced Thursday that Butler has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and will miss several weeks, Tim Reynolds of Associated Press reports.

Imagine if LeBron, Kobe, Jordan or any accomplished superstar instead had a career alongside Kawhi. You have these formidable rosters every season but end up racing to a red light because your co-star is never available in the post season.

Butler/Embiid/Giannis all hurt/playing hurt. Their potential 2nd round opponents CLE/ORL have no chance. They're heading to Finals no doubt..

I've been a diehard Lakers fan since 1960. Reality is sometimes a slap in the face to wake up. I don't think we'll beat the Nuggets. They may be our best chance to keep the Leprachans from getting to 18 before us.

I don't think Vogel is the best fit for that roster. They'd probably be better off with someone like Ty Lue.

Put Vogel on Minny though. That would be scary.

Ant-man is my favorite player in the series. But I still think that series could go either way. Wouldn't be surprised if Phoenix wins game 2.

You know, maybe we could give a chance to this Vogel guy

I have a theory that it was Chris Paul, not Booker, that was the most important player on the Suns team that made the finals and the 64 win team the next season. And that Mikal Bridges’ impact was underrated.

Better than Embiid. He had real skills, never relied on getting to the FT line.


What about Jokic?

Jokic is better than any center not named Kareem, Russell, Wilt, Shaq, Olajuwon. And may yet surpass some in that list.

Yeah, the Heat don't have much of a chance without Playoff Jimmy. However, they have Spole. He's very innovative. They may get 1.

If the Knicks had a healthy Julius Randle would they be the best team in the East? Their guys and coach strike me as much tougher than a soft Celtics team that coasts by on talent alone. Hart, OG, and Brunson are some absolute dogs

Randle is an empty stats player. They might be better without him.

Randle's playoff impact falls off harder than Harden's. He's the anti Murray.

By net rating this year's Celtics are one of the best regular season teams ever.
