    Gimme Lakers in round 2.

    The guards left on their roster don't have a chance in hell in stopping James and Russ.

    That sucks. Rondo is still more than serviceable, hurts the Lakers alot.

    Wonder if he'll stay in the bubble. I guess he could heal at home, if Lakers get another person.

    Once healed: physical therapy: playing 2K.

    Lebron/Caruso
    Green/Cook
    KCP
    AD/Kuzma/Morris/Dudley
    McGee/Howard

    The Rockets will run the Lakers into the ground if they are lucky enough to face them in the 2nd round.

    We all know how influential LeBron is. Anyone want to speculate what could happen if he decides the Lakers are too depleted to win? Will he do an about face and come out against continued play? Decide not to play himself? Veil his true reasons behind some story about needing to be with his family or needing to be more involved in activism?

    Nope. Rondo will be back for second round and beyond.

    Did he have to throw hands after spitting on someone?

    There's no such thing this year as being too depleted - especially when you have Lebron and Anthony Davis on your team. Even the 8 seeds have a chance to win because you never know when half your opponent's team will have to sit out with Covid. There will be a huge element of luck to this season, which is part of the incentive for everyone to keep playing.

    Oddly, Rockets are pretty lucky if Westbrook and Harden have already had it and come out of it OK. It likely confers at least several months of immunity, so the Rockets don't risk losing them in the playoffs.

    It may work out that way. I hope it works out that way. But there is just so much we dont know, especially the long term aftermath for those who have contracted it.

    A lot of the reporting on this is misleading. There's certainly no proof having it prevents you from having it again - it's not been long enough to have solid scientific studies on that. But with 13 million cases around the world, there are almost no examples of people having it twice. While the antibodies may not last, there does seem to be a ton of circumstantial data suggesting people don't keep repeatedly getting it in the near term.

    I wouldn't say misleading, but there might be different strains throughtout regions or countries.

    I am getting those mostly from Europe or some from Asia.
    They are working on a study right now where a percentage of those who got over Corona the first time, didn't develop enough or the right antibodies to stay immune for the length of period you mentioned. (Heard it over the radio so no written text on it yet.)

    My thinking was if the bubble was relatively safe, Harden and WB should not have to worry even if they didn't develop enough antibodies as the contraction rate should be low in the bubble anyway.

    We're all humans, but can't generalize on that, everyone's health condition is unique and the body reacts differently/virus attacks differently.

    Sorry - to clarify, the misleading part is that antibodies aren't necessarily needed to keep immunity. There are also t-cells, which produce antibodies. So with other diseases, your antibody counts go down, but the body remembers how to produce them. So if you get the virus again, the t-cells ramp up antibody production and kills the virus. The articles just tend to focus on half the equation. It's not intentionally misleading - its just that there are so many different crosscurrents here and writers aren't scientists, so a lot is getting lost in the shuffle.
