Valanciunas :(

It was a sad few hours. But similar to the Kawhi trade it quickly turned into excitement.

 

Gasol is just better than JV in so many ways. Threat from the 3, incredible passes, better defensively, spaces the floor. Also I think an underrated aspect of the trade is that the bench seems to play better with Ibaka and this will put him there most games.


Hopefully we get some good pickups on the buyout market...if we can get a PF and another shooter I like where we're at.

 

East will be a bloodbath regardless.

For sure. I love JV, but you couldn't even have him out there in a lot of situations because he would get abused on the PnR. Even if Gasol wasn't an upgrade anywhere else, having him able to be out on the floor against any given lineup is huge.

 

Not saying I'd prefer JV, it's just sad to see him go.

Here's to hoping the Pacers drop to fifth and we get a pair of ridiculous East semi matchups.

Hahaha, the selfish side of me would want Pacers to stay in 3rd. Then Raps would in theory play two of Indiana, Brooklyn, Charlotte, Miami and Detroit in the first two rounds. Meanwhile Philly and Boston beat up on each other in the first round and then again with Milwaukee in the second. 

 

Probably unlikely with Dipo out though.

LA floppy like they always been. Hope they keep the young squad. And Davis comes to them. 

The only floppy basketball team in LA is the clippers. :mj:

 

I hope beating the Celts on the road like helps them with this playoff push. They were playing good basketball when the team was at full strength. In fact, they’ve been playing some of their poorest basketball since Lonzo got hurt.

I think it was redic when people had them at 2 or 3 in the west. I imagined them exactly where they're at now. It's so weird that they have beaten GSW twice and the Celtics. Then they lose to the Grizzlies lol

Lin getting bought out and signing with the Raps.

 

Markham jersey sales will pay for whatever the contract is 10 times over.

Bucks are winning the east y'all. Hope they can win it all too. Giannis is one of the best players in the league and his story is amazing. hard not to root for him and that franchise.

Van Vleet out 3 weeks for thumb surgery. 

 

We can never be healthy.

 

At least we only play like 3 times in that period with all star break.

Only 20 something games left.  LeBron and the Lakers are on the outside looking in (9th or 10 seed) 

 

They have the hardest schedule left in the NBA and will have to win 16 more games to make the 7th seed. 

 

Meanwhile if they were in the east they would currently the 7th seed and only a 2 games from the 6th seed instead of 10th in the west

 

welcome to the west LeBron. :bisonben:
