lakers lost to dallas, almost loses to lac and today they were trashed.

They look a lot like a super talented team that mostly doesn't appear to give a poo poo.

I think the playoffs will come at them fast but they're still really good so

The man was stunningly well dressed. He had a smart looking jacket, and a really neat looking cape, the lining of which was shimmering and sparkling in more than Oriental splendour, which is a great deal of splendour indeed, just ask Kipling.

Yeah that's clearly Bob Bird.

You can tell Simmons is the most involved with their NBA coverage because it's by far the worst thing they do and is constantly trying to shoehorn in all his stupid poo poo.

It's super clear that they didn't watch the team last year except for the playoffs because yeah, a fully healthy team is better than one where OG's appendix exploded, Kawhi had one leg, Kyle was wearing an oven mitt off the court because his hand was so busted, and Danny had the yips

Yeah the rushed schedule is really dumb. I think they believe that next year will somehow be completely normal so they need to rush through this one to not disrupt it too much or something? Which seems very naive.

I dunno I think playing high level basketball two days in a row is probably still pretty hard on your legs.

I dunno, still seems like its a lot of wear and tear without rest for no good reason, even if the travel component isn't there. Trying to do that when guys are still getting into game shape also seems risky. Seems like they could have just added a couple days to the schedule and eliminated them entirely, they were just making up the schedule length anyway.

That's probably it, working backwards from next season start date. No way we are getting a normal, 28 city season starting in October though.

Danny gets a lot of poo poo for becoming a void on offense (which is fair) but his defense in the Bucks series was really good.

I am really loving OG's game. He's looking really confident in his shot and is looking to actually take people off the dribble, which is insane considering where he was at the start of the year.
