    NBA considering regional bubbles to start 2020-21 regular season.

    https://bleacherreport.com/articles/...gas-considered

    The idea is one month in the bubble, two weeks off, on to the next bubble. The season would start Dec 1.

    We donít have a concrete plan for schools for right now but the NBA has a plan through the end of the year. Resources and leadership.

    Does anybody else have a huge delay during NBA games? Iíve noticed Iím getting end of regulation or end of game alerts well before I see the end on TV. I donít know if itís just my YTTV feed or TNT.

    My TV just showed Oladipo got fouled at the same time the NBA app says he hit both.
    No Sabonis or Jeremy Lamb either. Itís all Warren, Oladipo and Brogdon.

    Goga is a real steal for them at pick 18 last year. International guys come to league ready to play.

    Yet I couldn't actively root against the Spurs if they made the play-in. Weird.
    Keldon Johnson is good. Drew Eubanks really a surprise.

    I like Poeltl, but would like them to probably let Bellinelli go, use that money to sign Dario Saric and then talk LMA into playing stretch 5.

    The slowish LMA at the 4 and a banger at the 5 failed. Maybe flip that and put him at 5.

    Also, theyíve got to let Derrick White start at the 2, with Lonnie ready to spell at 2 or 3 and with Keldon really emerging.

    That means undersized defensively Forbes is also expendable.

    Bye: Bellinelli and Forbes and Metu and Tyler Zeller.

    Hello: Saric, re-sign Poeltl for depth and draft Isaac Ikoro for even more ridiculous wing athleticism. If Deni Avidja slips to you, you go get him.

    Win more.

    I agree.

    I could see keeping Poeltl and using him like Splitter back in the day. Start him and play him 20-24 minutes. For all the talk about small ball, the C position is pretty deep and some size down is helpful. If the Spurs don't have a reliable big man behind LMA, they'd have to get one and that's not easy either. Saric would be a good pick up though. I'd feel better with that as a 3-man rotation.

    Murray and White need to start together. Lonnie and Keldon are behind them as the future. Let DeRozen and Gay finish their contracts and let them go. Draft an athletic wing in the lottery. Hope Samanic develops into the PF of the future to replace LMA.

    I don't watch a ton of Spurs, but haven't been too impressed with Poeltl

    I also don't watch much college ball, but I saw Donovan Mitchell play a couple few times -- never thought he'd be this good

    it would not have been unreasonable to bet every loser today

    Poeltl is a quality backup big on a team that isn't good enough to only have to use him 10-12 minutes a game. If they let him go, they'd have to find someone better and that's a challenge. He's worth keeping if they don't overpay him as a RFA.

    Agreed on Mitchell. He seemed like stick around the NBA good for awhile, not potential 6x All-Star HOF great. Seems crazy but the Hornets and Pistons chose Malik Monk and Luke Kennard over Donovan Mitchell. Those seemed like reasonable picks at the time, but that's why they're the Hornets and Pistons.

    I wouldnít begrudge anyone skipping this one but the Sixers have tied it up without Simmons and Embiid. Josh finally having a game.

    The Spurs, Blazers, and Suns are the top contenders for the #9 spot. All play the Sixers. The Sixers beat the Spurs with a late three by Milton. Sixers are playing the Blazers now without Simmons and Embiid. They play the Suns on Tuesday with who knows who. The #9 seed could come down to which Sixers team they play.

    I know Vogel is trying to get the Lakers core ready for a playoff matchup and he won't know the opponent until Saturday at the earliest. I get it. But he may be doing more harm then good keeping Lebron, AD, and the end of game lineup out there losing to an energized Nuggets bench.

    Well I'll take that back. That Lebron inbound to AD to Kuzma likely gamewinner three over Bol Bol was a beautiful play that will give opposing coaches a lot to think about.

    Why waste such a great play in a meaningless regular season game? Or is it just you can call Kuz's number in a meaningless regular season game but you'd never have the balls to call it during a playoff game so might has well help create more space for Lebron now by making them think about guarding Kuz.

    Yes. That's exactly what it is. And Lebron and AD can score off that play if they just need 2 points.

  19. #2159
    also think they were riding the HOT HAND and building Kuzma's confidence

    dude is streaky, but he can hoop

    true or false: thunder and jazz are tanking for the 6th seed.
