    Nobody is really standing out other than the Lakers.
    The group below fighting for 2nd seed are close together.

    So the prediction made by the media that 3 teams were pulling away, did not happen.

    Blazers were mostly just 4th or 5th with Nurkic, then got lucky with the 3rd seed after Nurkic went down last year.
    Good yet not impressive.

    We don't shoot midrange. Take your ass to the bench. You're cut.

    I don't think I ever clearly understood why things didn't work out between Melo and the Rockets.

    D'Antony said that he did all that was asked of him. Melo didn't say anything bad about the team, or other players. No players said anything bad about him. What was the problem?

    When he signed with us I was curious to see if he still had some game. Clearly, he does, though maybe not as much as he used to. So, what was the problem?

    The problem was he tried very hard on defense but just wasn't good at it, but more so, quite simply, we kept on losing. It was also a huge misfire to think he could somehow replace Ariza & a healthy Luc's impact on winning. Had we added Melo without losing wing defense and talent, things might have been different. But he still isn't that good. He's not impacting winning in a significant way.

    The Lakers are a weird #1 seed, they beat the tar, out of above average to lottery-ville teams, yet struggle against some contenders, like The Clippers, Celtics, and Bucs. But, they don't have trouble with us, Nuggets, Heat, and Trailblazers/Jazz.

    The Bucs kinda are too, but not as much.

    Lakers are pretty much playing their best. Clippers are operating at like 70%. And the rest of the teams in the NBA usually play in that 85% range in the regular season when they aren't tanking.
