    probably will only watch game 3 of this series because that will be Orlando’s 1st home playoff game since 2012...other than that, this series got me yawning

    Kemba needs to be one of the Lakers top targets. I think he would play extremely well next to Lebron. Kemba has that "very underrated" feel. Sure, people talk about his game and give him props, but I think he's a game changer

    Terrence Ross is way better than kemba walker. Terrence Ross was better than kemba even when Ross was with raptors and now Ross is still better than kemba walker when he with magics!


    I never thought dj Augustin would be making a playoff run ahead of kemba walker and hornets!

    Assuming Toronto sweeps Orlando, I think OG comes back by...game 2 or 3 of the semis. Maybe game 4, if they want to be extra cautious.

    Terrence Ross outplayed kemba walker last game of the season from jump start.

    Soon as Ross came back in off the bench, but hornets got eliminated from playoff contention when pistons did their thing and locked hornets into 9th place :/

    If Augustin plays smart, Ross does what he supposed to, Aaron gordan too. Would not be surprised for magic in 6?

    Orlando leading Toronto by 7 points with 3 minutes to play in the first half. Magic play tough.

    All these Eastern conference teams that spent most of the season coasting and load managing aren't ready for the playoffs

    Facts. All the lower seeds in the East were fighting and clawing to get into the Playoffs. Every game was a playoff style game.

    I hope this bodes well for the Rockets who were fighting to get into the 2 seed. Rockets weren't slacking after the ASB. Utah was pretty much coasting against trash comp.

    Watching teams take turn on offense and letting role players try to create or make plays is sooo cringe worthy.

    Bruh go stand in the corner wtf you doing dribbling awkwardly.

    Yikes.

    I'm so glad we play the wrong way.
