    Hate to say it as I have been one to say let's check the record after 25 games or so and see were where are Well L5, Wood out, Wall and Dipo in and out of the line up due to injury and load management. Can't seem to run out the same 5 guys night in night out.

    Maybe it is time to start thinking about that #4 pick. Move as many players as we can to free up cap space in the offseason to help shape the roster moving forward. No long term or major deals unless it is just something that makes sense which is not likely.

    Love KD but hopefully that injury will be nagging all season and him being on/off the court will lead to Kyrie and James hating each other and causing disfunction. Here's hoping the BKN pick goes from 21 to 14-15 or maybe even top 12! Again, here's hoping!

    It remains to be seen if the media favorites Lakers, Clippers, Nets will make an exception this season. I highly doubt that any of them will.

    Alright I was all aboard the winning train during 7 in a row, but I’ve seen the error of my ways:

    I repent and I’m full tank a thon now!

    We need to go full tank mode... It’s our only hope.

    The tankathon site is legit, we need a bottom 5-6 record for a good shot at the high picks, after that the percentage starts to drop off more! We are almost there, losing to the wiz would definitely help! Sit everyone! Extend nwaba and wood play the rookies!

    Give it a month, We will have the second worst record in the west for sure

    I’ve been watching a ton of videos on these prospects coming out.. I believe this is the deepest NBA draft class since 2003!

    Jalen Suggs- Jason Kidd Comparisons
    Cade Cunningham - Grant Hill Comparisons
    Jonathan Kuminga- Vince Carter/ Siakam
    Jalen Green - Freakathlete Eddie Jones
    Evan Mobley - Chris Bosh

    Greg Brown is a freak athlete
    Zhaire Smith Shoots lights out

    There’s another seven or eight guys- The more I watch these videos, the more excited I get

    Only 1.5 games out of a top-4 record. Getting closer.

    That's very true and Anthony Edwards and James Wiseman may be trash but it does give us EXCITEMENT AND HOPE.

    Can't say the same about suffering for Marcus Morris and then dealing him 2 years later for a 2nd round pick.

    i do enjoy it and of course you dont because you are a part of anti basketball crowd...ABC:D

    let me tell you a parable in order to illustrate why i dont like tanking even if it were to guarantees getting allstars...( and it doesnt)

    would you like lebron, durant, kawhi ,embiid and curry all of them together to be given/traded to your team tomorrow and you win the title 100%?

    well i wouldn't have liked it
    i really dont

    perhaps this is why i have never ever watched an allstar game

    i like the process (of) struggling, then wheeling and dealing, tinkering with the lineups, then finding the gems, developing them, picking the bits and pieces from here and there and solving the puzzle, i want to see coach coaching, players letting be coached, and the crowd cheering them up and lifting them of the ground into a championship...

    this is BASKETBALL

    then on the other hand you have playing bad on purpose and pathetic giving up the games in order that you may be given this player or that... well that is a complete opposite of the above heroic process...
