Parker finally showed up. Bucks should keep him regardless. Injury is a concern and his fit is questionable but simply put they can't replace him with a player as good in free agency. Similar to Tobias Harris in Orlando. Trade him down the line if an opportunity presents itself.

I’m not a big enough basketball fan to watch the playoffs unless the Lakers are playing


Bye for now

Ben Simmons has been a turnover machine and he's still an unstoppable force and about to crap out a triple double. Kid is so good I want to cry lol

If he ever figures out a reliable jumper or even a 3 ball it’s over. We should’ve fleeced Philly for him while he was out. He wanted to be here.

I simply do not enjoy Jimmy Butler's style of play.  Im so glad he's not a Laker.

Im glad LA didn't hire Thibs either.  That team is brutal to watch.  Almost no movement on offense.

Yea he doesn't know how to coach a game without grinding it out every possesion and Butler exemplifies that. If Jimmy wants to play into his mid 30s he's gotta bolt.

I don't know. They are on a nice momentum as a team. AD/Jrue is arguably best dominant big man/elite two-way wing combo since Shaq-Kobe.

 

Depends on how healthy Curry/Durant throughout the series I guess.

Negative.  They are playing at this pace b/c Boogie isn't there.  Mirotic is also a better fit with AD.  Boogie slows them down and makes them worse defensively.

If Boogie re-signs with New Orleans they need to adjust his role. Which may be possible seeing as how they'll likely be easing him back around January / February (I assume?). They are both great players in their own right but they don't play well together. Spot start them for appearances and so everyone's happy but primarily use Boogie as a floor spacing superior version of OKC Enes Kanter or Greg Monroe's last year in Milwaukee. Bulk of his minutes are spent feasting on opposing teams bench bigs. Both AD and Boogie eat and get their minutes and starting roles but play together the least possible amount of time allowable lol. DMC would have to play some PF to make it work.

I wished we tried to trade for Embiid

Bucks win again.

Should be up 3-1 but inexperience is a factor.

It's a factor for Boston too but I was just being nice.

Their coach stinks and Eric Bledsoe is garbo.

Yes. While he was at LSU he was literally walking around with Lakers gear on and said in a video he wanted the Lakers to draft him.
