    no way. They go into the playoffs as healthy as possible. They’ve basically got a four game warm up against Brooklyn in the first round.

    They'll play Orlando. Brooklyn made it to the 7th seed.

    either way, it’s basically pre-season until the second round. No reason to get Giannis hurt before the first round.

    One of the pleasant things about the Suns recent success is the (positive) attention they have been getting:


    A lot of us, myself included, questioned several moves by James Jones over the past couple years, even as recently as the Cam Payne 2 year deal, but hard to argue against the results right now.

    Nate McMillan confirms that his extension is 1-year. "I just felt that, that was appropriate for both sides. Normally I don't do any negotiations until after the end of the season. This has been an unusual season for all of us. Myself, the organization, the NBA," he said.

    #Rockets announced that Russell Westbrook underwent an MRI in Orlando for a quadriceps injury. The results revealed a strained quadriceps muscle in his right leg. Westbrook will be out Friday against PHI and his status will be re-evaluated before the playoffs start next week.

    This is why losing TJ isn't as much of an issue as some would like to think. Apparently he's picked up a "not that serious" foot injury against the Rockets in their last game. Lets see how much he'll miss. A "not that serious" foot injury cost him 39 games last season. Until he's no longer on the Pacers injury report, you can't rely on him very much.

    jesus... the argument made most here isn't about losing TJ as a valuable piece of the team. the conversation is that we shouldn't have had to PAY to get rid of him and we should have received something of value in return.
