    Tucker, Melton, and Thybulle for John Collins and Frank "The Tank" Kaminsky.

    It must be in the Lake Michigan water. I feel like that's the type of Chicago team we've seen since Jordan retired.

    There isn't a game I've seen the Pacers play where they look like they have any "quit" in them. And I love the fact that they're just a wonky team; from Haliburton's three-point shooting spasm-like motion, to Mathurin coming off the bench, to Andrew Nembhard's last name sounding, phonetically, like something that you might need to visit your doctor to treat, to Buddy Heild's complete lack of a conscience, all the way to the balance of a roster that causes opposing announcers to wonder...



    I just can't help but like 'em.

    The Sixers should say no to that. Melton, by himself, is likely more valuable than Collins given their respective performance and contracts. And I sure wouldn't want to see the Sixers deal away nearly every bit of perimeter defense they have.

    I think there's probably a solution without needing to deal off core players.

    I'm not sure Collins really fits. Tobias Harris is, IMO, more effective as a PF. Seems like more of a 3-and-D winger would be at the top of their list. Maybe a Gary Trent Jr. or Keldon Johnson. Bogo probably would be the optimal guy.

    Sitting here wondering how Jaden Hardy fell all the way out of the first round…kid is instant offense. Would love to see him get around 25 to 30 mins a game. Gives Dallas another option and one who can create on his own.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    He was ranked 17th in The Ringer's draft guide and #2 in the RSCI class rankings when he graduated HS in 2021. So it seems like he definitely dropped farther than he should have. My guess is teams wanted to see more of a shot from him rather than just iso scoring, but the thing about being an iso scorer is it means you can score.
