    If you read the article it says Orlando would be a possibility. Lets talk about this. I'm not a sports nut so i can think of a few venues, help me out. Obviously Amway and Amalie. All the big universities, i really only know UCF and USF. Wide world of sports? RDV? Obviously we are a large metro area who hasn't had a lot of positive tests yet.What do you think of our chances?

    I have a man crush on Matisse Thybulle. I think it was 4thewin who was all over him before the draft? Not only did he impress his first year on the defensive side of the ball, the guy just works hard.His off season videos are hilarious, the Sixers got a good one. Chuma better be good.

    After the New York shut down it's pretty hard to see any sports being held this summer. Just about every state is going to follow sooner or later. On a pure selfish level it's the worst kind of disaster, forced to stay home and slowly go broke and no sports to talk about. I miss basketball but i really miss baseball. It might make sense to have the NBA playoffs in late summer or even early fall but it's not gonna make sense to have baseball this year, i'm pretty sure it's gonna be cancelled.

    It's looking more and more like the season might be suspended. Two questions for all of you. If it takes a month or two to get back into action, would you want Isaac to come back this year? Question number two, would you feel terrible if they just had the playoffs whenever the crisis ends?

    I work at the airport, this **** is scary from so many different angles. Not only am i more exposed, but i actually expect to work more if my co-workers get sick. The only good thing for me is i'm part of a union and have good health care if I get sick.

    I have to admit i simply did not think the team had this level of offensive play in them. Even admitting the incredible poor shooting to start the season. Strictly from a fan standpoint, the team has been more entertaining to watch.

    Good win, i think the whole Evan thing is easy to figure out. Remember when we talked about how Evan is good but needs to have the ball less? Well right now all 3 of our point guards are healthy and balling out. It's that simple. I hope Coach can get this into his head. When he comes back he needs to play team ball, we've all been saying this for years.

    Evan is a good player who deserves to be on the clippers like every other NBA free agent! #free Fournier!

    3 of the 4 teams i thought we could trade with made big moves at the deadline. I have to agree with what you want but i don't see how it's done. of course anything is possible. Despite what some people said last year we did have options. If we had renounced Ross and Vucevic at the beginning of free agency we did have cap space. Yes it would have been a bad look, but the right thing to do. This year even if Evan opts out we have no room and only the small exception. As some else pointed out we have i think the 6th highest payroll in the league for this ****ty team.

    Magic Vs. Trailblazers - Monday, March 2 at 7:00 P.M.

    This is why i can't stand the defenders on this site. We really are light years away. So many mistakes. We are basically the Suns and Knicks right now. We need new ownership, i can't even get excited about the future, we have no future! Except for a few games a year. we are a very boring team to watch. There is no easy change for this either without some sacrifice. Those draft picks some of you swear are gold will have to be used to get rid of some of these players. The worst thing about our mediocre players is all the playing time they get. During this whole rebuild we hardly take any chances on undrafted or underused players. Sure, when we have injuries whatever poor stiffs our management have cobbled together get minutes.Mostly when everyone is healthy it's the same ****. Checking the Box score it's amazing everyone got on the floor last night. Thinking back it's been this way the whole 8 years. **** players getting 40 minutes a game because our latest coach wants to save his job. Clifford is not the best coach but please stop blaming him. Look how Vogel is doing in L.A. We need talent. The reason i'm so pissed off is i fooled myself thinking the Fultz trade was the beginning of something. Instead they just ran it back, happy they got a former number 1 pick for nothing.

    Wow look at the unrestricted list. A whole bunch of players are going to be out of jobs as teams start copying MLB. Veterans have always been coveted because the youngsters are so raw these days.However, in this analytical age i suspect many of the players will be unsigned while teams go small and use younger players.Cheaper players who have even a little upside will be signed while the lesser teams decide not to compete against the super teams. Watch it happen.This is the year teams show hesitation after the 2016 player salary spike. So many of those contracts were complete busts. I also believe Evan will opt in and the team will run it back next year.After that all bets are off because the year after that the magic will have a window to resign Isaac and Fultz. it won't be as bad as we think because both Gordon's and Vucevics contracts shrink.However, Ross,Aminu and Evan if he resigns will be involved in trade rumors all season, with Gordon right behind them.
