    I really want Phoenix this year just for CP3, before it’s too late for him. Thought it already was so this is very pleasant as a surprise

    I thought Kawhi went to LAC to be "at home" or as close to as possible. Can't see that one in any shape or form. Could definitely see bad things happen re: Paul George though, or Ballmer just having enough and going over and above to redirect it all

    OFFICIAL GAME THREAD - Magic @ 76ers - Sunday, May 16, 2021

    Have to agree with letting RJ and Cole go sometimes if they have even a shot at becoming primary scoring options on any day. Fundamentals and team basketball are absolutely the most important thing but if we are going to have anyone lead the team in scoring on a given day it's not unimportant for them to see what they have in good competition. I think Cliff is at the very least consistent in how he asks his guys to try and play, and I think we have a bunch of guys like Kelle, JI and Gary Harris now that can help keep these two in the right perspective and reminding them to compete on both ends of the court. I don't know why but even if they are not our "superstar" players, JI and Fultz I feel are absolutely ready and capable to be the leaders on this roster and I think the franchise is in good hands. I really feel it's going to translate to success. We just need that big time scorer and some complimentary players.

    Not a bad little loss there at all, like Cole's scoring prowess, who gives if he has a couple of bad facilitator games. Did he show something? Damn right he did. I'm going to box score watch the OKC game instead of working lol.

    2021 NBA Draft Thread

    Arguments or no arguments, think this management will get the decisions right for the vast majority that come up and so far they have done what a FO should do in seeing what it has without making a rash decision and treating its best players well enough and when trading them getting reasonable enough value. The worst decision appears to have been picking Mo Bamba and given he has the tools to succeed at a very high level I don't think their entire tenure here needs to be pilloried for that. Mo has let Mo down. If we get a shot here after tonight to pick up an elite talent in this draft, all the other stuff will wash away as that will be the catalyst for change. It changes the mode. It elevates others even if it takes time. Provides foundation. We are where we are, lets just all keep our fingers crossed for some good luck for a change.

    I am not watching (am at work), but I do see her Cole has 6 assists to 1 turnover after a couple of bad distribution games. Which only goes to prove one thing - that all good point guards and facilitators take time to develop and if someone is completely 100% reliable as a rookie, they are probably generational talent and are the exception to the rule. The kid is good, his head and heart are both in the right place. I don't much care to take anything else away from what's going on out there right now. Except maybe that let's hope Hampton is on track to being something like a really good secondary scoring option.

    Yeah it is absolutely not insignificant that Marion's peak was 7 years of just about 19 and 10 with fantastic D. On a winning team. I think Aaron should be flattered that the comparison's were ever made at this point.

    Don't worry so much, laugh it up! Unfortunately I'm just a grumbler who is never particularly happy with anything. I don't expect to be taken seriously lol

    You can be facetious if you want to, I know I often can be! At least the rest of our games are against teams who are playoff bound, really shortening our chances.
