so basically wednesday's heat vs sixers game is going to be all the deep bench players

Good, the Nets made the playoffs. If they didn't, they would have potentially had to fork over a top-10 pick to the Hawks this summer. Brooklyn can get assblasted by ATL in the first round now for all I care.

At least I can get to a playoff game(s) at the Barclays...

Yeah. Who were all those clowns here supporting tanking? Both teams fielding an entire bench intending to lose the game. It's such a joke for those that care about honest competition.

League needs to round robin draft picks so, so badly. It should happen now, really shove it up the tanking team's asses.

ESPN Stats & Info: #Hawks are second-weakest 60-win team (out of 47) over last 30 seasons based on net efficiency (+5.6 points per 100 poss)

 

Thought that was an interesting stat...they do play in the East, though...

About damn time but it really wasn't his fault why they didn't make the playoff this year.

The Thunder were eliminated from playoff contention for the first time since its inaugural 2008-09 season, and now expected to spend some time this offseason to evaluate coach Scott Brooks before deciding to bring him back another season, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports Thursday.

I think ultimately Brooks stays.  KD has publicly defended him in the media and the fact that they won 45 games in the brutal West after dealing with all of those player injuries says something.  I have a feeling KD would consider the firing of Brooks a big factor when it comes time to decide what to do when he's a free agent...

 

And they're considering Billy Donovan as his replacement???  Yeah, I think Scott Brooks is definitely staying...

Yeah the team has had a string of bad luck when it comes to injuries like Westbrook going down the right before the playoffs the same year they dealt Harden then Durant but I do think they need a change.

And them winning 45 games this year is pretty much all on Wetsbrook, any coach can say give it to Russy and let him go nuts.




Cavs went crazy for Marions dunk. lol8[1].gif I guess it is his last dunk of his career (regular season-wise)?
