Cavs just gave up 148 points in REGULATION to the Thunder. Their defense is laughably bad

I’m starting to actually believe there won’t be a Finals rematch this year

I always thought Kidd would make a better college coach than in the pros.

Fwiw, his was the 1st collegiate jersey I ever bought. Joey Brown of Georgetown was 2nd.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

Yeah there was something. He’s really good friends with one of their owners, Larsay or something like that and I think the story is he kinda got himself fired or quit from the Nets on purpose to go to the Bucks then when he got in that owner basically gave him autonomy for controlling everything behind whoever the GM at the time was back and he had those powers taken away in the past year.

Good. I hate Jason Kidd and think he's an idiot.

Bucks can do better, and need to do better before Giannis and Bledsoe decide to go elsewhere.

PS: I hope the Bulls target Giannis if he ever becomes disgruntled and pushes for a trade out of Milwaukee.

You and every team in the league but yeah agree on all that. iirc Giannis made some ominous quotes this summer about leaving in free agency when his contract is up in 3-4 years.

Is Lebron congratulating his younger self for making the 30K club?

What a mess that team is. If I'm Kevin Love I wouldn't suit up for them again. He gets blamed for everything. He's got a ring, I'd definitely be trying to force my way out of town.

Best guess at the draft picks for the starters:

Durant (LeBron)
Harden (Steph)
Davis (L)
Giannis (S)
Irving (L)
Embiid (S)
Boogie (L)
DeRozan (S)

Guaranteed Durant was first and DeRozan was last. Pretty sure Boogie was second to last. I could see the Giannis and Embiid picks being swapped though.

Kevin Love broke his hand tonight and is out 6-8 weeks. 8 weeks puts us about 10 days-2 weeks away from the start of the playoffs (so maybe 5 games at most before the playoffs he'd have to get back in the swing of things if it's closer to 8 than 6 weeks.). The Cavs essentially have no chance at a top 2 seed anymore and 3 losses separates them at the 3 seed and the 8 seed. It's crazy to think but if Lebron won't guarantee them he's re-signing with them next year (he won't) they really should do whatever they can to get him to waive his NTC and get some assets. I don't see a way that team wins the championship this year.

The Cavs just blew a 21 point lead to the Magic and lost by almost 20. I'm rather enjoying this Lebron/Cleveland collapse

Cavs should just trade LeBron.

Agree, like I said a few posts up... If he won't guarantee he's staying tell him to give you a list of 2-5 teams he'd waive his NTC to go to, there isn't a move out there to help them this year and it's not worth trading the Brooklyn pick for like Kemba Walker if he won't guarantee he's staying.

There's also this...





What a mess

In more positive news, Giannis literally jumped over a guy on an alley oop tonight.
