Who could have predicted that this dumpster fire of a roster wouldn't work

Why do teams keep signing DeAndre Jordan? Guy's been toast for 4 years now

That feeling when you realize you traded one guy who doesn't want the smoke in a big game for another, only this one won't stop shooting even when he should

That was an ass whooping.
Philly as had a few of those recently against good opponents (BOS, MIA, BKN). Not a good sign for the playoffs.

I have no defense for what Simmons did, holding out and all. It sets a bad precedent and the league will absolutely address issues like Simmons, John Wall, Dragic, etc. going forward. Absurd.

That said - the idea that somehow Ben Simmons was the only issue. Let's again remember that despite his obvious issues - passing out of a layup, missing free throws, not shooting in general - there was only ONE 76er with a positive plus/minus in that final game, and that was Ben Simmons.

Embid and Harden have also historically come up soft as hell in big spots. They foul hunt, and that shit doesn't work in big games. The refs swallow the whistle. Good luck with that.

But the Nets... man. What top seed wants to play that damn team in the first round? Kyrie needs to get his shit figured out. There's only a month to go. If he's playing? I don't care what Ben Simmons does, the Nets are the best team in the NBA. But he has to play every night, home or away.

Man what a chaotic eastern conference playoffs this is going to be.

I think the Eastern Conference Playoffs in general is going to be a treat for the casual fans this year. I wouldn't be surprised if we see a lot of 7 game series.

I feel good about the Bucks if Lopez, Hill, and Connaughton all come back healthy and playing well. That would give them a 9 player rotation and really good size. Without that depth, I worry even though they seem to be hitting their stride.

i'll also say that i think the Heat have the kind of physical players that could give either the Nets or Bucks trouble - so i won't quite rule them out.

Philly? forget them. i can't put any stock in a team that is dominated by players who need to get to the foul line often to be successful. that just doesn't happen in the playoffs.

Yeah, I definitely fear Miami a bit too.

lakers' players are as delusional as their fans.

Another sterling defensive effort from our beloved Lakers.

They figured out what they need to do. Just need to execute.

Can they lose 2.5 more games in the standings to a team that's actively tanking in Portland?

Will people then finally start to talk Lakers?
