    First! Wow, I would like to thank Severo y Grupo Fuego.

    I don't share the optimism that Stone (via Tilman and Patrick) will nail this offseason, but man am I excited to know the potential this team showed with a non-playing $40M albatross taking up cap space, and this year's picks coming. This season will be a GM's dream in NBA 2K.

    Aside from the deadline, I think this season was an absolute success. Secured the worst seed while seeing some real growth over the course of the season from our main guys. Tanking hurts in the moment but now that it's all over and it's time to reap all the benefits it really doesn't feel like we gave up anything by losing all those games.

    damn straight. Nice to go from harden to this. Next year well have a lot to watch. I have been impressed with kpjs play lately. Looks like we got a steal for a second round pick. Not bad.

    i think a lot of players will want to play with green, hes not just an elite talent, but hes a team player, hes a guy that others will want to play with since can play on or off ball, he finds his shots in the flow of the offense, and isnt a me first kind of player. Good times are coming

    Then they may not even show up, or worse, may decide to sabotage the lottery.

    We need to tell them don’t bother coming back unless they get us the #1 draft pick. :)

    I am never going to get used to this mindset of getting rewarded instead of getting punished for losing.....

    But why not.

    Severo was the turning point of the season for me, since that historic half time performance J Green transformed into Kobe.... I'm hoping next year we get to play Denver on Latinx heritage night...

    Winners get rewarded with a championship, losers don't get rewarded.... Loser's merely get a chance to turn into winners with nothing promised. Without this system it would be impossible for any losing team to climb up the rankings and be good.

    So glad you said it. He is 6'4 on a good day. He and Jordan Clarkson are basically the same size. Maybe he grows an inch over the off-season since he is so young.
