    Embiid is in the physical prime of his recuperative life. He's been missing games all season long. It seems like his body just can't cope with the NBA and he's not going to survive it. I really hate to picture this force of nature being marginalized in a couple of seasons because he can't finish a season, but I don't see another outcome.

    Simmons, I will hold my tongue, but I doubt this kid will pan out. Something remains disturbing about the way he handled himself in college. It's a sign of a weak person.

    Mailed it in. Likely to protect his NBA prospects. Whatever the reason, it was weak.

    That it's pretty easy to stay eligible at a school like LSU, especially when I'm sure the teachers 'work with' the athletes, and he still flunked.

    Yeah, Draymond. Guess that explains why he has his own version of physics where his leg swings into crotches.

    Bogut signed by the Cavs and all of a sudden, the Cavs is going to be the deepest team once the playoff comes around. Once JR Smith & Love returns, they'll have Bron, Kyrie, Deron, Derrick, Bogut, Thompson, Korver, Frye, Shumpert and even Liggins has become a good defender/hustle player.

    On one hand, I think Matt Barnes fits in well. On the other hand, he's a POS.

    Why KD???

    They'll just rest him for the playoffs. Might be a good idea, he'll be fresh. Warriors dont need him to make the playoffs anyway

    I hope Spurs takes the first place over them, it's the only way the Clips could avoid them as much as possible and maybe get to the western conf finals.

    Dubs will probably keep homecourt over the Cavs no matter what though, which is probably their biggest concern when it comes to standings.
