    If there are other creative ways to improve the team, Morey will assuredly do so should the opportunity present itself. After all, who would have expected him to unload Horford's contract so easily without long term repercussions. That was pure alchemy.

    I think Simmons is a fine player, just extremely limited in a 3p shooting game. To me if they are 100% sold on Maxey then Simmons is a piece you move. So either they're not sold yet or didn't get anything worth biting on. But if I were Philly I'd be surrounding Embiid with shooters.

    They never both got 10+ Assists before in the same game. Nurk got it going in the 4th. They needed all of it as SAC shot 60%+ from three for most of the game. Lillard loves playing against the Kings. He's never lost a season series to them. Of course, Dame's highest scoring averages are against LAL and GSW.

    Curry can give them 14/5 on 24 minutes a night with 44% from '3'. That's valuable as a 1B PG. Curry also plays good Defense. He's a perfect complement to Embiid.

And if one of their all stars takes the next step and goes nuclear (see Jamal Murray during last season's playoffs) and/or an additional Pacer who is knocking on the door of All Star level - In this case, LeVert or Warren - steps up to complement their two All Stars, Sabonis and Brogdan, they'll have a reasonably good chance against anyone in the East, especially with more performances from Turner that mirror his game against the Warriors.

    The hope is that LeVert - both as a facilitator or in usenin a pick-and-roll situation - will help to take the pressure off of Sabonis and Brogdan, who are currently playing an unsustainable amount of minutes, as well as placing the shooters (Brogdan, Turner, Justin Holiday, McBuckets et all) in a better position to knock down shots, thereby allowing more space for Sabonis to operate.

    Multiple 'ifs' for the Pacers moving forward? Yes. But every team in the East, including prohibitive favorites Milwaukee (IMHO, still the team to beat in the East) and Brooklyn, has them. And I truly believe that Boston, with all of their injuries, given god health, is also getting overlooked here.

    Sabonis definitely needs more space to operate.

    I've always wanted to see Pritchard given the time (five years for a G.M.) for his vision to show itself from beginning to success. Paul Allen cut him off at the knees and that lesson took years for him to adjust and get another chance. Always believed in his philosophy for winning (moreso than any other Blazer since Bucky Buckwalter, and even moreso than Bucky, I think. Like all plans, they get derailed (Oladipo's unexpected injury) for a little while, but as long as Ownership doesn't get in the way, any good G.M. should have a pattern of forward moves that keeps any major chink from derailing the end results. Pritchard is getting closer to being able to take a riskier move that pushes IND into elite status in the East. See how this year's development plays out, see how much experience they get in the playoffs this May/June and reevaluate after that.

    I'm with you till here. Curry is a solid player for sure, but he's not much more than that. Nothing about Seth Curry is ever gonna fit prefect.

    He has an extremely high basketball IQ. He spreads the floor for Embiid better than anyone on that team or in the league, for that matter, plus he can run the pick-and-roll or pick-and-pop with him as a 1B PG.

    C.J. and Dame combined for 68 points, 23 Assists and only 1 Turnover.

    Not to say he isn't very good because he is, but very good players get replaced all the time in this league.
    I don't know if basketball fans will ever really know how good he is. I remember a Rockets-Celtics game where for the first 2.5 quarters you would have barely known Kyrie was on the court. Suddenly, he flipped a switch, and for the next 8 minutes or so he was completely unstoppable. Then, just like that, he faded into background once again. It was so odd.

    Here's a funny item: In Basketball-Reference they have one of Kyrie's nicknames listed as "World B. Flat".

    Something funny on Harden going to BKN that I stole from twitter. The trio original OKC trio of Westbrook/Durant/Harden has now played via every permutation. Only Durant in GSW has titles to show for it.

    OKC - Westbrook/Durant/Harden

    OKC - Westbrook/Durant
    HOU - Westbrook/Harden
    BKN - Durant/Harden

    WAS - Westbrook
    GSW - Durant
    HOU - Harden

    Who is the the unequivocal #1 guy in the league right now? Is there one? I mean Jordan was in his prime, Lebron was in his prime, and although I thought Kobe was in his prime, I know it was never undisputed. I think we are back in a period of not having an undisputed #1 in the NBA....the guy you would just look silly arguing against. I assume Giannis would get a plurality of the votes, but there would be a few others that would likely get a material amount of support. It will probably be hard for Giannis to ever really hold that title until he wins a championship.

    Interesting....I think Westbrook and Harden would have a title if they got to play with Steph, Klay and Draymond at their peak also. Hell, I would even have a title if I got to play with those guys at their peak.

    Durant was, IMO, the driver of their second championship and even moreso their third. It's not like he just stood out there.

    Rando thought on Houston trying to move Dipo. Wouldn't a contending team just rather have DeRo?

    Depends on what you want, really.

    Both will be available, I'd guess.
