I guess they're thinking they can get a player better than MCW. The pick is only 1-5 protected for this draft and 1-3 protected for 2017 and 2018. Not too much of a stretch to think that they'll get a pick around 4-8 in 2017.

I find that they tend to look pretty average until the middle of the 2nd half where they make their runs.

yeah bosh is awesome. that was a good podcast.

btw this was an incredible listen. i don't know that much about nba history but i found most of it enthralling. bernard king was a revelation, the chief was great, and darryl dawkins (unsurprisingly) told some great stories. penny was boring and tiny archibald was kinda weird.

Bill wraps up interviews from the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend with basketball legends Penny Hardaway, Robert Parish, Bernard King, Darryl Dawkins, and Tiny Archibald.

hmmm ok i'll see. so far they're neck and neck w/ the clips but it's cuz of good defense and tim duncan nailing a million jumpers. kawhi is friggin 0/7 (guhhhh for fantasy) and there isn't much creativity.

Great win by the Clips, way to hold on.

Spurs lost their own momentum and rhythm in that hack-a-Jordan game they played.

seriously?

Goran has been amazing last 2 seasons, he should be a nice fit with slashers like wade and deng
can't wait to watch some heat games

This. And they couldn't make a big shot to save their lives. And Kawhi had a BAD night. 1/11 def not good fantasy numbers, Roman.

i don't think i've ever watched jamal crawford have a bad game live. every game i watch him in, he hits a ton of crazy jumpers. i think he banks in a 3 in 20% of those too

I can't find an updated 2015 draft order list - I wonder how much of the first round is Sixers and Celtics?
post #20622 of 27359

I'm officially hopping on that OKC bandwagon.  Barring serious injuries, they're taking down whoever they face in the 1st round of the playoffs unless they're matched up with Memphis. Too much firepower up and down the roster.  That bench is scary.

post #20623 of 27359

OKC looks pretty tough right now. I do feel like that Brooks has almost no (positive) impact on the team's success. It really just seems like the players' talents are carrying the team with minimal coaching.

I don't see OKC beating either Memphis or GSW in a 7 game series so they better have a 6th seed or better to move on to the next round.

Poor Chris Bosh. Also, I'm going to the Hawks game tonight.
