    I got Nance Jr, Klay and DMitchell in the 3 respective contests.

    I also agree, DMitchell should be in the dunk contest. Silly to put Oladipo there instead of Mitchell. If they wanted to put Oladipo in something then put him in skills while Mitchell in dunk contest.

    I'll take the replacement to Aaron Gordon.

    I still hate the Jazz btw guys... they just happened to get themselves a good one this year.

    He seems like he's having a lot of fun coaching this team. The chemistry is off the charts and the stars are starting to feel aligned.

    Man I could not agree more. I have the same feels.

    Side note: D’Antoni has far exceeded my expectations. I did not want the Rockets to hire him. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

    I doubt MDA himself would have imagined his system doing so well with Harden and that he could transform Harden into a fulltime PG.

    On such short notice.

    Same here. I was a big supporter of brining van gundy back, it seems asinine now but I just really love that dude. I'm blown away by how well it's worked out so far and really happy that Mike was able to recapture his status as an elite coach.

    Celebrity game is the best part. All other events usually underwhelm.

    Ha! This post could have been mine. Agreed again.

    Well, it worked out so far and I plan on riding this train all the way to a championship.
