the inevitable Mark Jackson rumors have begun and, welp, that would be a really bad idea.

Well, if he wanted to go back to college, the Indiana job and rumored 10Mil a year should have enticed him.
I think he knew this move to Prez was imminent back then and he didn't even consider IU or UNC.
Don't see why Duke would be any different...unless he fails miserably in his first year in the front office.

I don't actually think he's going to Duke... I just think people will say he is, because people.

The best (as in craziest and mind numbingly dumb) rumor I've seen is that Stevens moved up to president to get out of his long term coaching contract and will now hire Mike Woodson to coach the Celtics, and will then go and take over Indiana.

God bless the internet.

How does one tear their meniscus from falling on your butt?

Also - what in the hell is a small meniscus tear?

It's easy to miss, but if you watch the replay, his foot hits the ground for a split second before he falls on his butt. That must be when it happened.

Or more likely it happened at the Chick-Fil-A on 14th St pre-game.

Don't be ridiculous.

We have a Chick Fil'A right inside the arena.

I’ve actually got one of those, from playing a little touch football with nephews on Easter, was running and my left leg found a little divot on the field and locked my knee (while running). Hurt like fucking hell for two days, couldn’t bend it at all without shooting pain, then quickly got to the point where I could walk pretty normally, but it’s now two months later and it still hasn’t fully healed. Can still walk normally, but I haven’t been able to bend all the way into a squat without significant pain, still get mild pain going up or down stairs, it gets stiff and swollen at the end of almost every day, and I basically haven’t been able to do anything athletic since it happened. Doctor said pretty much the only thing you can do is rest it as much as possible, ice it when you can, take lots of Advil and do physical therapy and wait for it to heal.

Definitely can’t play basketball on a torn meniscus, that’s for sure.

If an opponent misses two free throws in the fourth quarter during all home games, everyone gets free chick fil a.

So if you ever wondered why Wizards fans suddenly get super loud during free throws when getting blown out at home in February, now you know.

Obviously I still expect Philly to win, but a come back is not insane if Embiid is out for the rest of the series (or playoffs).

And what's doubly insane is that whichever one of these mediocre teams (Philly without Embiid being decidedly mediocre) actually would have a decent chance of advancing to the ECF because the Bucks and Nets are on the other side of the bracket.

I think this Hawks team would be favored over an Embiid-less Philly.

It’s hard to really peg them because the Knicks played like shit the whole series, so I might be overrating their talent.

Ahhhh let's be real - the Knicks are a product of great coaching. Their roster isn't great.

I don’t think their roster is great, but they underperformed their regular season significantly in this series. Mostly starting with Randle, but not only that. Thibs was not great on offense this series, frankly. I am not sure I recall more than 2-3 times when the Knicks went after Trae in these 5 games.
