    I would think so. His potential has barely been tapped.

    It'll be interesting to see which they choose between Butler and Harris. It's tough to justify paying the 3rd best player that much money, but they're going to end up paying Harris or Butler more than they want to

Harris will have all the leverage here, and while re-upping with Philly would give him a chance to be a part of a powerhouse team out East, another team could offer him a more pronounced role on offense.

    Just because they can offer him a max deal doesn't necessarily mean they will offer him a max deal, though it only takes one to go all-in for him.

    A lot of assets out there. Many will again be surprised what they don't get offered.

    I suspect that's correct. There's enough talent out there that teams are going to be able to push back on price.

    That will help teams like Houston and Portland to find fill rotation pieces.

    Both of them need to find a way to steal a forward who can score. I still think Portland has some flexibility with expiring contracts. Who's looking to move a forward on a longer contract, I don't know, but there's got to be someone out there. T.J. Warren might be a target. He added 3-point range this year. Yet he's got three years left on his deal at an average of $11.75M, but he misses time every season, and Phoenix might throw money at Kelly Oubre Jr. this summer. Yet I could see him thriving as a #3 option on a good team.

    Toronto has the Bucks on the brink. Did not see that coming. Turns out Kawhi Leonard is really good at basketball.

    FVF is 10-12 from "3" since FVF, JR was born.

    IMHO, it should be Butler -- this is under the premise that the 76ers aren't outbid for him -- as he can also initiate the offense. Either way, a prime Summer objective: Lock Ben Simmons in the gym until he develops an outside shot (not necessarily a three). If Simmons can keep defenses honest, the sky's the limit for not only Simmons, but this core itself.

    I realize that this was stated in jest, but Leonard's been considered the best two-way player in the game for how many seasons now? If it's possible for a player considered a Superstar (or should be considered as such), he's underrated/overlooked, at least in my eyes.

    As for the series itself, Milwaukee's vaunted bench has been thoroughly outplayed by a depleted (they're still missing Anunoby) Toronto bench the past two games. That may or may not continue, but who saw that coming?

    The playoff inexperience of the MIL players is revealing itself. Who has Conference Finals experience on MIL? Who on MIL even had 2nd Round experience before this year? The 2nd Round was new for most of them, while for Leonard and Gasol it was business-as-usual, while Lowry and Ibaka had tons of experience.

    We mentioned this at the beginning of the year when LeBron darted West. Boston was supposed to be able to take advantage of everyone's inexperience in the East. Nobody choked more in the playoffs than Boston. Everyone else had free rides in the East while Milwaukee showed up big-time against BOS. BOS should have won that series for the same reasons TOR is winning right now.

    Something is very wrong culturally with the Celtics. Ainge is going to have to figure it out. The chemistry is bad.
