Brad wouldn't take that Spurs team to a top 4 seed.

Two great players are all you need in the NBA, which is why the Pelicans were the #1 seed in the West until Boogie went down

it's so funny that casey is still the coach of the raptors

i cant think of a more maligned coach that's kept his job so long and now everyone is like he's ok

They have a pretty bad coach and are in a much harder conference!

Meanwhile Sad Brad has taken the Celtics from 324.8 & 49.3 down to 301 & 43.1!


Both of these could just as easily be explained with the respective roster changes.

I still think pop takes it over brad because of the change of course on aldridge after last year and dealing with the entire uncertainty of the kawhi situation on top of the roster they have.

I think if you stuck an average coach on the raptors they would still be top 3 in the east.

Have a bad feeling that Jennings (the newest Wisconsin Herd!) is gonna end up taking the Kilpatrick spot

I went to lunch, so sorry to backtrack, but I've always thought Horford is under appreciated and he's a large part of why that Hawks team went on such a huge run. I've never understood why people complain about him. He's not there to score 20 points. His passing ability is outstanding and he chips in a little bit of everything. Basically Jokic before Jokic but with more defensive stats.

horford has definitely been one of the most overlooked players over the length of his career

Can't wait to watch the Wolves' nonexistent perimeter defense get carpetbombed by the Rockets tonight. At this point I'll be impressed if they even manage to weakly contest a couple of them
