I thought they'd win like 48 games this first year of the "new core" and that was with Hayward and Kyrie both healthy, I think euphronius might have been the only person to call them a "50 win team, easy" back during prediction time. I've got no real hopes for the postseason but at least they showed they can be very good when healthy, if Hayward recovers they have a decent shot at getting out of the East next year

That was a fun season of pretending Warriors and Cavs aren't just gonna cruise through the playoffs again.

This could be the year the Raptors finally reach the finals. It's by far their strongest team.

It will also be very entertaining if LBJ somehow gets to the finals again however. CLE vs. GSW IV would surely have to be the last sequel. I don't see a CLE vs. GSW V in the offering.

I think by 2014 the front office was probably in reality pretty high on Pau and that a lot of the discussion around him ended up being overblown media stuff. They could've saved a lot of money by dumping Gasol (and some of the proposed the deals have subsequently leaked and could've saved the Lakers a lot of money) and the talk radio media, the people who constantly Lakers concern troll or are the people legitimately worried on behalf of billionaire's finances were mad they didn't do it, and they still ended up offering him more money than anyone else did when he was a free agent. They did him dirty before that though so I don't blame him for moving on.

Horford confuses people because he gets max money and scores uh, 14 PPG. Which does feel a little weird. But he also might be the single best glue guy in basketball and that's not really quantifiable.
