This diversity is refreshing.

 

Elite teams:

Bucks

Clippers

Lakers

 

Good teams: 

Raptors

Celtics

Heat

Rockets

Nuggets

Jazz

Pacers

Thunder

Sixers

Mavericks

 

That clutter of good teams can beat one another any night. Plus with this neutral floor setting, it's a who's who in the playoffs. I'm liking this. Needed a break from the super team domination.

Imagine that Luka could've been in Kings uniform and they passed...

Well Luka was wearing ATL hat and they still passed...granted it was for Trae and 1st round pick. 
 

But just saying, Bagley 3 was beastly in college and got a lot of exposure and hype. He was headlining national games. While, I honestly think 99% of the people probably didn’t see Luka play a minute of basketball prior to his NBA stint. 

Of course if we are talking hindsight vision, Luka would be running up and down the court with Booker. Because there is no teams in the league that would passed up Luka at 1.

"Marvin is for us a better fit, a better player, and a great talent, so he's the choice for us." - Divac 

Also apparently Divac had bad blood with Luka's father which went into drafting Bagley over him. No matter how good Bagley was in college Divac messed up, he put ahead personal factors into making an organization's draft pick.

Kevin Harlan is the greatest announcer in the history of sports. I wish that was just a opinion / hyperbole.

looks like players that were injured earlier in the season (Isaac, Simmons) are very vulnerable.  Probably came back too early.

On the side note, watching OKC - LAL now and Green is terrible. In the last 3 games he  made 2 3PM on 17 attempts . 11% 3PM% for someone who is supposed to be `3 and D` player

Just out of curiosity why do u hate Danny Green so much lol? He was 2nd in 3 point% in the league last season for the Raptors and yeah he has always been a streaky shooter.

I wanted Raptors to win it all , so I started "hating"   Green last year in the playoffs  when he was  basically  unplayable in playoffs and VanVleet haven't had his child yet

I see that's been Green throughout his career though, clunkers mixed in with a little 4-5 threes made games. But it does look like he lost a step on the defensive end this season compared to last season, Lakers miss Bradley in that end. It's also gonna be interesting how the Raptors look next season, not sure if they can keep Ibaka, Gasol, and FVV unless they take a paycut.

Michael Porter Jr. has been injured his whole time playing ball. I get it. But everyone and their grandma saw his profile and begging not to pass on him.

 

 

You hate to see it.

Knicks picking Kevin Knox over him is looking more worse everyday.

Hot take: Jimmy Butler is better than TJ Warren.

 

Lmao at the Pacers yo. They actually think this is/was a rivalry or whatever. Arrivederci, trash.

Grizz secure a spot in the play-in game, Spurs miss the playoffs for the first time in 22 years, Suns finish the bubble going 8-0 and need the Blazers to lose against the Nets to get into the playoffs. Blazers v. Suns would've been the better play-in matchup :(

I have no idea why Nets defended Lillard the why they did.   I guess it worked,  only 42 tonight. Tonight Lillard proved his greatness.

It will be fun watching Lakers - Blazers

And LeVert thinks he is MJ ...
