    I can't remember whether my prediction for this season was 40 or 42 wins, but either way we exceeded my expectations. I'm confident that management will take action this off-season and gets us the shooter(s) we need to take the next step.

    I’m not against adding a playmaker, but I think we’re missing two big things: 1. Two-way players who can shoot the lights out. That list of free agents is not that long. I personally believe we have enough playmaking between Paulo and Franz. 2. Winning pedigree. Who on our bench right now can confront Paulo and the others about what it will take to win? I don’t think we have that guy. Klay (or someone like KCP) brings that ability.

    Doc Rivers might not wanna win this one and rest his players.. no benefit in being 2nd and facing Miami or Philly.. For Orlando, we could really dodge a bullet. Being 5th ain’t too bad. This is actually what i wanted. I didn’t want 2nd place. It was unrealistic and bad for our mindset and mentality going into the offseason. I see Cavs, Pacers as a lock to win and i could see some sneak „tanking“ by the Knicks and Bucks

    Well, we haven’t been doing much living lately lol.. I’m really curious how Milwaukee decides to take tomorrow. There’s a world where they just let NY have the 2 seed and rest everybody. NY could throw their game too. Nobody wants Philly and the Joel Embiid free throw and flop fest in the first round. I think everybody would be happier to make them deal with the play-in on the off chance they’d lose or Embiid’s fragile self would get hurt again

    I really liked Klay a lot when he was in his prime. I wouldn’t be against adding him but orlandoholic does have a point. I do think we need another creator. We are so dependent and Paolo and to a lesser extent Franz. He makes the list of potential free agents though because of his historically great shooting.

    Klay needs plays to be drawn up for him. I don’t think we are that type of team right now.. Easiest way for this team is to get players that can playmake and create by themselves.

    “One of the worst-kept secrets in the league is that Orlando, loaded with young talent but not with shooters, might offer Klay a ton of money next summer. Meanwhile, Joe Lacob has said the Warriors want to get all the way out of the luxury tax next summer, which is possible, but only if they are very disciplined about how much they’re willing to pay to keep Klay (and/or CP3). Put bluntly, Klay is the only one of the big three who might end up more valuable to another team than what the Warriors want to pay him. The more durable he continues to be, the larger the contract he deserves. The Warriors should absolutely try to bring him back, and not just as a sentimental gesture.” https://theathletic.com/5398810/2024/04/08/warriors-klay-thompson-free-agency-kawakami/?source=user_shared_article Count me in on the Klay train. If we don’t trade for a younger star guard, this dude would help our young team learn how to grind, play team ball, and win. A 2-3 year big deal wouldn’t be a bad investment.

    Javonte Green might make a fun FA target. He's really played well since Chicago picked him up. Think he'd be a good bench wing, probably wouldn't cost too much either.

    https://x.com/fawzanamer_/status/1778968619549852022?s=46 we need a veteran, a serious veteran on this team! I actually don’t like Lebron at all, but he would do wonders for the mentality of this team.. Its no coincidence we’ve been bad recently. We have jokesters on the bench while loosing, players thinking we are in the playoffs guaranteed and players that find it cool to be in the situation we are in..

    https://x.com/thehoopcentral/status/1778936690452976061?s=46 What is this about? This is just a weird way to react. officiating was as expected very bad on us.. I skipped through some of the game. But i don’t know if we used our coaches challenge. Should have used it on the no foul on Lowry by Franz. They overturn it and we have the opportunity to make it a close game. Suggs also gets the tech (what a joke) and Philly has a nice cushion again..

    It’s getting old but i don’t matter to call out the same mistakes all over again.. Not the root cause of our lost, but still an important one. Mosley doesn’t know when to effectively call timeouts. It stands out and it hurts the game. Let Philly go to a 7 point lead before calling a timeout to start the game. And the problem is that it wasn’t a fluke 7 point lead, it was that Philly was playing good and we had no answers to stop them and had no clue on offense. What does that do? It makes the team play catchup against one of the best teams in the NBA. So entire first half we play catchup. We start the second half and coach let Philly go on another 7-10 point run before calling a timeout. Now we are playing catchup on a 14 point Philly lead. I don’t know. It’s just not for me. I watch a lot of Euroleague ball, a lot of legendary coaches. That’s a beginners mistake and usually just doesn’t happen. And i got news for the young team. They still don’t know what the playoffs feel like. And they only will know if Milwaukee wants them too. Disappointing ending to a mostly great season. Wake-up call and humbling as well. I hope management make the right conclusions and won’t be hesitant. If they had made the move at the deadline, we’d be a playoff team for sure. The move for Murray was right there. We could have at least added shooters to spread out the floor. Didn’t happen, so we struggle.. All the other teams had moves that helped them make a push for the playoffs. Indiana, Philly, Knicks made moves to make the playoffs and ultimately they did. Miami made a move and it got them a great push for the playoffs.

    The overreactions are mad hahaha we are winning Sunday... job done then we are winning first round series and the 2nd round round.... I predict we make the Eastern finals.

    And to add to your last point, if we wind up 8, we get the 63 win Boston team in the first round and might as well just count 4 losses and our season being over. Sunday is like our 4th straight “most important” game of the season.. at least this one is finally back at home

    That's a good point. The Bucks didn't play Dame tonight, in addition to Giannis. Wouldn't be surprised if Lillard sits out again on Sunday. I think the Bucks would prefer to play us. If I'm not mistaken the Pacers kind of owned the Bucks in the regular season series. The games that matter in the east all start at 1:00. There will probably be a lot of scoreboard watching and adjustments being made according to what's happening in the other games. Cavs will beat Charlotte. Pacers will beat the Hawks. The Heat will destroy the tanking Raptors again. The Knicks will knock off the Bulls. The Sixers will beat Brooklyn. Simply put, if we don't win then we drop to 8th and have to face the Heat in Miami in the first play in game. If that game is lost then we probably will be facing the Hawks in Orlando for the 8 spot.
