    Porzingis rubber ankle comeback, never forget (although talks of a high ankle sprain seemingly don't sound promising).

    To think I was considering dropping JVal for Okafor when the latter was traded to BKN (even got a lot of comments favoring that move in AC). Killing it right now. Five DD's in past seven games, with around 17/12, 2 BLK, and even a few 3PT's here and there.

    Have a BYE and have him on INJ. Just might need all guns blazing, and dude was playing best ball of his career. Just an oddity looking at that contact. You'd think either Clarkson is Luke Cage or Tyreke Mr. Glass. The video was more of me tinfoil on thinking he's shutdown without any news.

    Of even a possible return date

    Still no news...

    You forgot Love. And without him they're now 7-6. But yeah, Cavs aren't really top heavy this year. If you also take out LBJ, not much left. But Pels are somewhat similar, although their 3rd best player (Holiday) is better than Cavs'. Houston is phenomenal in that they have 2 PG's who can both shoot and pass/create plays at an elite level. Compare that e.g. with OKC. Elite guys, but less so (compared with Houston) in terms of distributing/moving the ball.

    Impressive how Davis goes about his business... No overplaying. Tim Duncan'esque, fundamental basketball. Just that he has a truck load of top level fundamentals.

    Just saw this clip from Cavs' practice... Clarkson working on his on-ball defense:

    This is the problem with putting too much weight e.g. on the legendary 6-0 in the GOAT debate. Would be nice to have someone attempt to calculate team strenghts based on ELO and then measure who had tough/bad competition, who was on a good/bad team etc. There are some advanced individual metrics which try to estimate the impact that one player had on the team's achievements, but these are not enough. Anyways, what's certain is that it's tough to become an all-time-great in a team sport without a good team/system. Certainly the Boogie injury came at a particularly bad time, since the team was finally starting to look good, stringing together winning streaks here and there (they were 8-2 when the injury occurred).
