Can't even remember the last time OKC faced a non trash team.

I'll do babyskyhook's dream scenario one better:

Scenario A - LeBron demands that Randle be re-signed if he is to come here. In order to make that happen, because the Cavs pick is suddenly a borderline lottery pick, its enough by itself to trade Deng to Atlanta, thereby freeing up the room to sign George, re-sign Randle AND sign Lebron.

Scenario B - We trade the 15th pick plus Denver's 2018 2nd round pick to Detroit for the 11th pick, thereby ending up with a pick more valuable than the one we gave up.

---------------------

In reality, my best prediction is that Cleveland will have the 10th/11th best record in the league, while we will have the 12th worst record in the league. Philly gets the 12th pick, while we receive the 19th/20th pick.

How is that supposed to work?

I thought that the Detroit first (protected 1 - 4) is going to the Clippers from the Blake trade.


Sorry, trade with the Clippers then. I forgot about the Griffin trade. The point is the same though... trading up, ironically, to a spot that is better than the pick we gave up. Put Charlotte's 10th pick on the table if you prefer.


If #10 or #11 becomes available for trade, the cost to move up 4 - 5 places in the draft order should be higher than a mid second round pick.

Minnesota goes on the road and beats the Wizards. And Indiana is up 5 late at Philly with about a minute left.

Oladipo just got murdered on a dunk attempt with Indy with the ball up 3. Didn't cost them, though, as Redick missed a tying 3 for the Sixers. Oladipo was pretty incensed. Rightfully so.

EDIT: Oladipo is shooting 4/21 tonight though lol.

They just called an offensive foul on Oladipo. This game is literally being fixed at the end to give Philly a chance. Absolutely unconscionable.

Indiana is going to hold on, despite the absolutely abominable officiating going against it late.

Jeebus, OKC are such frauds. Can't wait for them to play real teams and fall apart at the seams.

They’ve had a favorable schedule for the like, the last two months. It’s like the league forced by schedule to have them in the playoffs.

I'm just playing around. Sorry, didn't mean any offense. I was trying to have a pipe dream fan moment without my analytical hat on. Again, my apologies if I was abrasive to you in any way.

There's limping to the finish line, then there's the Knicks. They're being dragged through the mud by a mule with rope wrapped around their waists to the finish line. Having DS Jr. would've made it so much more tolerable, I feel bad for their fans.

Hornets & Pels too close, Charlotte has a legit chance to win 6 of their next 7 games after tonight.

Dwight vs Davis is actually an intriguing match-up right now. Got so caught up in the standings I forget to appreciate the actual game & players

Yeah seriously. It’s weird hearing his voice for another team.

Freaking Bill and Stu have been cringe to the ears.

I just can't get past the sound of his voice. There's a fine line between Harry Calas (former legendary Phillies baseball announcer) and Meyers.

I was about to say "Dwight's lowkey had a good year" and then he switched onto Holiday and let him take a wide-open 3 pointer, with minimal effort to get out on him. Swish, Pels up 5. Never change, D12
