Hard to believe that he’s still only 25 years old

Rockets won against the Wolves.

A rockets and Spurs win vs West teams will do Lakers a favor.

Utah has so many 1sts from the Cavs and Wolves.
It would be great if the Jazz and those 2 teams always played well enough that Danny boy didn't have any top 7 picks for the next 5 years.

Magic are the Celtics kryptonite for whatever reason. It's an unexplainable oddity. I'm also very excited for Jonathan Issac. You can see the potential. A 6'10 player with guard skills.

Brown credits Orlando’s length and ability to get deflections. I hope Rob is listening to that.

Bohan 7-8 from 3 tonight

Anthony Davis wingspan 7' 6"

Thomas Bryant wingspan 7' 6"

Rui Hachimura wingspan 7' 2"

Wenyen Gabriel wingspan 7' 1"

LeBron James wingspan 7' 0"

Paolo Banchero wingspan 7' 1"

Jonathan Isaac wingspan 7' 0"

Moritz Wagner wingspan 7' 0"

Franz Wagner wingspan 6' 11"

We don't have Bol Bol or Mo Bamba length but these are better players

We are finally reacquiring a significant amount of the length we gave away earlier.

Jaylen Brown on the Magic: β€œThey’re an unorthodox team to play against. They’ve got that Toronto kind of feel but longer. Kinda like how Cleveland was last year. A lot of bigs, a lot of length, guys who can cover ground and get a lot of deflections. Tough team to play against.”


Size still matters. Small ball works if you have splash brothers not Russ/Bev/Schroder

I know people are tired of hearing about Caruso, but his defensive stats are absurd this season. If he plays enough games, he'll definitely get a 1st team all defensive selection.

Quote:
Alex Caruso belongs in the DPOY conversation

β€”1st in D-Raptor
β€”2nd in D EPM
β€”7th in D-LeBron (only guard in top 15)
β€”94th percentile defensive on/off
β€”Only player in NBA with 3.3 stl% and 2.8 blk% (500 min)

Absolutely elite on and off ball defender

Ja must adopt an outside shot for the Grizzles to be effective. Crazy how much they rely on the shooting of the guys next to him.

Feels like Lillard will be gone sooner rather than later. Can't really see him co-existing with Simons and Grant.

Yep, right before the game.
No game planning I guess.

Mavs and Pels lose again. 6-8th spots in the West are very much wide open.

I will LMAO if the Celtics get tossed from the first round but it would make me wonder who they would hire as their coach after that.

If would be great if it was like the 1-8 matchup of Mavs vs warriors of the dirk MVP year. Back when warriors fans weren't aholes.

Orlando is to the Celtics what the Clippers are to the Lakers.

Ingram set to return tonight after a 2 month absence. The question mark will be if he can stay healthy enough to lead them to some wins. He's as cursed as AD when it comes to missing games.

he has missed way more games than AD at the same point of their careers. AD had minor injuries before joining the lakers, but he played in 75% of the games for NOP except for the last season which the relationship got ugly.
NOP has two great talents, but they are both injury risks.

I have always supported BI other than against the Lakers... but this is the only season I hope he doesn't do well.
