Sure, Lonzo's shooting was awful, but you could see his impact in many other areas of the game besides shooting. Can we say the same for Grayson Allen? Who is an "old" rookie, by the way.


Yeah, of course Zo is better than Grayson... but people were acting like it was inconceivable his game could translate to the pros... but he looked pretty comfortable out there, albeit inefficient.


He had a -7.5 BPM this season. Considering he was the 21st overall pick in a pretty loaded draft last season, I'd say the early returns have been pretty bad. Like, I think we reached for Wagner, but at least he was better than Allen, was picked later, and he's also younger.


Yeah, I saw his numbers... I just was watching for Zubac... and noticed he was on a career high.

We'll see if those two games were flukes or not.

Still sick about Zu...


You aren't the only one.

The Thunder swept the Blazers during the regular season. I think they'll win the series 4-1 now.

if that happens...they need to break up with either Lillard or CJ.

@DavidPurdum

Per @SOHistory, the Clippers (100/1) are the biggest underdog in an NBA playoff series in 30 years. Warriors are -50,000 to win the first-round series.

Honestly, to hell with the playoffs....it's the same story every season since 2014...no Lakers...so I couldn't care less.

Sorry, just being blunt and honest. I'm a fan of the game of basketball, just not the way the game is currently played or presented.

Rooting for the Nets.

Man, the Sixers are in long term trouble if Embiid is still unhealthy.

So weird to watch good basketball with Simmons and Embiid. Just wait until Lonzo Flourishes.

Won’t be surprised to see the Nets/Sixers series go 7 games, BK has a real chance to pull off an upset.

Philly should run the Triangle. Their offense bogs down and just looks out of control.

With 4 all stars and a sharp shooter scoring shouldn't be an issue.

Nice quarter for the Nets... Embiid looks labored out there.

This is why we should draft Bol... Embiid can barely jump and he's blocking and altering shots.

And Bol shoots better.

What's up with Philly coach? It's not rocket Science.

Brooklyn is packing the paint Embiid shooting 3's and and the guards trying to drive is not a good plan
