And sadly the industry would contract. Many (most?) people who attend are interested in being part of some big crowd/spectacle. Not watching a game in a quiet, empty gym.

Just in time for a meaningless run that will result in the 15th pick...but still a nice win!

Ahh, just read Kerr is sitting their best players and Kawhi will be out with a concussion. So much for a great game. Spurs should only be a half game out, with the tiebreaker, after tmw's game tho. Didnt expect that when the season started. Cavs havent been great lately either.

He was spectacular. KAT, when he wasn't whining about no-calls, was pretty great, too.

LaVine is out for the year, as we know. Bjelica--playing really well lately--is on crutches after last night's loss. And Lance Stephenson, just back from his previous foot injury, is reinjured.

With about 15 games to go, I'm on the fence whether I'd prefer to see them keep charging ahead, knowing the playoffs are a tiny, tiny chance ahead, or just semi-mail it in, play the deep bench more, lose some games, and go from the 9th pick (where we are now) to the 6th or so. Let New Orleans and Sacramento and other trash teams fight for worse picks in a good draft. I don't know what's best.

But I know this: anyone who starts praising Rubio now can f*** off. He was always great!

Saw that. That team has quickly devolved from confusing and mediocre to a full-on train wreck. Guys start one night, are inactive the next. Everyone is bitching to the media. What a joke! But Wade ... can he get more than the $23m they owe him next year on the open market? Does he care?

Just now read that Bjelica is officially out for the year. I think if I were the Wolves, I'd limit KAT, Rubio, and Wig to about 30 mpg and just play Tyus, Baz, Gorgui, Rush, Aldrich, Dunn, etc., and let happen whatever happens. (Which would be losing.) Maybe sign a D-League wing and give him some run. Adrian Payne, hello!

Man, don't bring me down. Make America great again by cutting all domestic spending and doubling down on unnecessary foreign militarism. His budget won't pass either house of Congress because both parties already despise it. PLEASE JUST TALK ABOUT BASKETBALL!

Here's something: let's focus on Luka Doncic, the 18-year-old Slovenian wing who seems inevitably to be a high pick whenever he comes over! For Real Madrid last year--a great, great, Euroleague and ACB team--averaged 14.1 ppg, 4.3 rpg and 4.1 apg, shooting 52% on 2pt%, 43% on 3s, and 85% FTs. He's about 6-8. He. Will. Be. Great.

Sorry Cap!  LOL I am excited for the playoffs with both Golden State and the Cavs banged up. Time for a new team to rise?

You know, while all season I figured it was those two, Houston, San Antonio, Washington, Boston, even Toronto...could be fun.

Boston should have gone all out for Butler and the championship. Oh well, maybe Gordon Heyward in the offseason.

Totally agree. Chicago is a mess: strike when the opportunity presents itself. It still may be possible, but will the opportunity be as good next year as this (when KD is either out or not at full strength)?

btw, not NBA, but last weekend I went to a HS game and saw Jericho Sims, a really talented 6-9 kid headed to Texas next year. Wow... So talented. Really athletic, super-soft touch. I'd like to see him working harder on defense, rebounding, getting position, etc., but that's to be expected when you're in 1a (the smallest class) and just dominant. He had something like 36 and 14 and I felt he really, really underachieved.

Actually his dad was a Gopher back in the 70s. One of his older brothers played at U of Northern Iowa in the 90s (was a senior my freshman year there, before I transferred to U of MN), and another brother played football at U of MN. (Crazy time span of brothers.) So it's quite the athletic family.

By the way, by way of a disclaimer, I started drinking during the Gopher game today, which ended up a loss to Middle Tennessee State. So suffice to say, I am fucking hammered atm. Please forgive in advance whatever else I say.
