    Certainly not terrible figures, but those match the criticisms in Portland, particularly the pace.

    D'Antoni would certainly be in interesting hire.
    I can't argue with the criticism of Nate Mc. in Portland, but higher pace rankings weren't going to push the Pacers past the first round during that four season period. See my post #784 for the reasoning as for the ousters.

    Yeah, from what I've read, Rockets fans are concerned that their owner is another Robert Sarver. If that's the case and Morey is inclined to jump, the Philly brass should back up the brinks truck for Morey, and stay out of his way. Not that I expect for this to happen, mind you.

    A chance? Dame is out and Orlando is a joke. The only silver lining to the bubble playoffs for us is the Nets were worse. Things will wrap up in both series tonight.

    That'd unlock Myles Turner, Warren, Lamb, the Holidays, and especially Oladipo.

    Sabonis? Not sure there. He's pretty deliberate.

    McConnell might like it too.

    Westbrook may go off for 50 or shoot 1-20.

    He's a feast or famine guy even in the playoffs.

    I so hope he comes back, but I'm also happy I don't care who wins or loses this series.

    EXACTLY what I was thinking. Brand can keep the GM title and Morey can be team president of basketball affairs.

    I am here for this intrigue. And I have to believe the decision is yes.

    Milwaukee hasn’t taken the court yet for Game 5.

    If they boycott games 6 and 7, too, or game anything of a series they could possibly lose, I'll be impressed. This? Nah.

    Given what's going on in Wisconsin, the words of George Hill, Fred VanVleet and Jaylen Brown, I wouldn't be surprised to see some gates boycotted/forfeited/postponed.

    Not sure you're the audience they're trying to impress--nor whether they're trying to impress anyone--but I'll be sure to note that this hasn't changed your perspective.
