    Not sure. Losing Ben Simmons really obviously hurt our chances regardless of who was coaching. Maybe a change in coaching will help. A big thanks to Brett Brown for rebuilding this team.

He more than likely picks up his PO for next season (17 mil) so i'll have to suffer through another season of them trying to make him a focal point on offense again.
    oh, he is picking it up....I agree, they need to get past him as he is not part of the next contending Magic team. They may need to throw away part of their rebuild, and do another mini rebuild. A lot of better than average pieces that do not really elevate each other. If they are willing to take a step back for one year, this could be a good summer to off load some pieces and take back expirings and picks. Just have to decide which few pieces that they think may be foundational. I would start with Isaac, and I still like Fultz's future....probably be on the phone to see what I could get for Gordon, Vuc, Fournier, etc.

    They've got $122M on the books for next season. They're paying Vuce, Gordon and Fournier to be good now. They're paying Ross and Aminu to be quality bench/rotation players. Seems to me they've got two choices: either figure out how to be legit good next season (as in 50ish wins and advancing in the playoffs) or blow that thing up. Seeing that they were in the wilderness for so long before this, I figure they ought to try to make it work. Move a bigger guy - Gordon or Vuce - and add a full-service PG and a wing who can shoot.
    Gordon and Vucevic to OKC for Shroder and Steven Adams.

    Who says no?

    (The money works, fwiw.)

    How about Ricky Rubio for Gordon, straight up?

    I think OKC may say no....I assume they want a cleaner restart when those contract expire?

    I just noticed your post which is seemingly agreeing with M2....I assure you that I was not referring to you or anyone when I was joking with M2 about lightweights....had not even read all the posts. If I saw your post, I would not even have taken that route in kidding with him.

    Way to go Thunder buddies. Second game in a row where Houston had them on the ropes and couldn't finish them.

    OKC's plan is to go just as small (with the exception of Adams) as Houston. SGA is playing Harden straight up most of the game with no help. Harden puts up big numbers, but others are covered. What's interesting is how good Jeff Green's been. Gallinari has no hope, nor does Adams. (Or Noel, for that matter.)

    SGA hasn't been great shooting the ball, but his 18/12/6 (1 TO) night was huge. That corner three to go up late in the 4th quarter was monstrous.

    Nah, not quite.

    While it's a start, I can tell you with virtual certainty that the wish for Sixers fans involves totally cleaning house: Front office personnel and HC. And hiring a POBO, who can evaluate the entire operation and select his own HC, with very minimal ownership/ownership minion interference. But that doesn't appear to be happening.
    Whatever you do, do your best to not allow the struggles of life to interfere with the pleasures of living.

    Oh, for sure, they'll want more. Maximum carnage appeals to the Philadelphian sports fan mind. I think that's what they liked about the process - the more it hurt, the better the payoff would be, right? Yet I can't imagine too many Sixers fans thought Brown should ever coach another game for their team.

    Miami sweeps Indiana.

    Pacers are better than this showing. Bad luck with injuries played a big part.

    It'll be interesting to see what happens in Indiana's off-season.

    I am not a Rubio fan. So I'd pass on that.

    Schroder is an interesting target. He'd definitely pick up the pace. I'd kind of like to keep Gordon if he was coming in.

    Yes...if I'm Luka when that was said, I reply I'll see you in the 4th QTR...oh yeah...ON THE BENCH CHUMP!!!
