    The NBA is back.

    So what's going to happen with James Harden? I don't want the Celtics to deal Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart for him, nor do I think they will do that. Not sure where he'll land.

    I don't love the idea of acquiring Simmons, and I like him alright just not crazy about it.

    But he'd be icing on the cake to jettisoning Harden at this point.

    Doesn't seem like good teams want him. Houston did everything for him and this is the thanks they get? Plus he wants the ball the entire game but he is choke artist when it matters most.

    That Tatum shot last night was nuts. Kudos to the Celtics. Hell of a game.
    Giannis needs to work on his free throws.

    He called game.



    Even if the refs tried to send it to OT on a bullshit call.

    Awesome game winner there from Tatum, also the Celtics lowering their banners looked fucking DOPE. I hope they keep it like this until fans are back.

    The Rockets are pursuing a trade package from the 76ers that would be headlined by Ben Simmons and Tyrese Maxey, league sources say. Houston is increasingly determined to complete a James Harden trade as soon as today and has chased the promising Maxey in addition to Simmons. Philly is known to covet Houston's PJ Tucker in addition to Harden while the Nets have also remained in pursuit.

    Nets.

    Adrian Wojnarowski
    @wojespn

    reporting w/@RamonaShelburne: Brooklyn’s acquiring James Harden in a three-way deal with Cleveland. Caris LeVert, Dante Exum, Rodions Kurucs, four 1st round picks – including Cavs’ 2022 first via Bucks -- and 4 Nets pick swaps to Rockets. Jarrett Allen, Taurean Prince to Cavs.
    Eek.

    Oladipo and Wall seems like an interesting backcourt. I don't think it amounts to much but it's an interesting backcourt to see work together.

    People sleeping on the Cavs portion of this... Jarrett Allen locks down the paint for them, 22 years old, and adds to their young core of Garland, Okoro and Sexton. Not too mention they gave up the least, and have some nice role players (Drummond, Osman, Nance) around them! Cavs looking good.

    Alex Rodriguez and his business partner are in the process of purchasing the Timberwolves. Start with a minority share, and transition to full owners in two years. As a Minnesotan, it has been tough to get into basketball because this team has been so bad for so long. Glen Taylor is a big reason why this team has stunk for so long. The Lynx are also a part of the deal, and are far more exciting to watch.

    Let the rumors of them moving to Seattle begin.

    A Rod cares about money a lot. I would imagine this is a team that will either relocate and try to make a splash with a big marketing and merch strategy built around stars...

    Or more likely they stay where they are and operate cheaply.

    As the playoffs are underway, we're seeing a rash of fan behavior that is just plain horrible.

    A waterbottle being tossed at Kyrie, popcorn being dumped, spitting etc. needs to be more than just a slap on the wrist.

    55 in 2OT is nice but Iíll take 50 in regulation.

    Youngest ever with 50 in the playoffs:

    1. Rick Barry (23 years, 21 days)
    2. Michael Jordan (23 years, 62 days)
    3. Jayson Tatum (23 years, 86 days)

    Thatís good company.

    (Yes I know this is late and the Cís just got disposed of, but still)

    Lebron leaving his team on the bench with almost 6 minutes to go in the game (yes I’m aware that they were getting killed).

    Danny Ainge is gonna step down from the Celtics. Unexpected, but a lot of Celtics fans will enjoy that, right or wrong.


    I have to believe some of this is tied into his recent comments on race and Boston that did not go over well.

    And Brad Stevens is stepping out of the coaching role and into the GM role. I'm fine with this move but I'll miss Danny's drafting ability. His legacy post-2008-title will be that he traded Pierce/Garnett for a stockpile and turned it into Tatum and Brown, neither of which were easy picks. Trading down from 1 to 3 for Tatum is an especially incredible move which quite possibly yielded us a HOFer. But we likely won't be picking at the top of the draft for a while, and his recent trades/FA signings haven't worked out so well, so farewell to Ainge and I hope Stevens will succeed as GM and hire a good replacement coach.

    Ainge should be very in-demand by other teams, particularly ones trying to rebuild, IMO. I expect if he wants a new job right away he'll find one.

    embiid with a meniscus tear in his right knee, missing game five, considered day to day and is gonna be treated with physical therapy instead of surgery. does anybody else's mental health revolve around the physical health of a 7 foot cameroonian man or is that just me?

    FOR FUCKS SAKE.

    and finally he was healthy going into the playoffs. horrible. now it's a hope and see approach every single day for the next month, hopefully.

    he could look good in game 1 in the next round but then be out game 2 because of swelling. it sucks.

    just win tonight please.

    I do at least hope he takes a year or two away before taking anything. He has had some health issues, wanna say it was 2 years ago he had his second heart attack.

    Yea he mentioned his heart attack when discussing his choice to resign. I agree with you and expect him to take a year off. But even though I've seen the word "Retire" used in most of the headlines, at age 62 I'd be surprised if he's done for good.

    He might just end up taking a Jerry West type President of Basketball Operations where he hires a full-time GM. 'They' say he wants his kid to get a GM job.

    awesome game to wrap up the series tonight. it's always stressful losing embiid for any amount of time, cause ya never know what team youre gonna get without him in the line-up. tonight was very fun to see. everybody playing hard until it was put away. our defense is gonna be key, if embiid is missing a good stretch, to help alleviate any games with down shooting. in that respect, tonight was definitely encouraging.

    Feels like this Nets v Bucks series is gonna be a de facto NBA Finals with the Embiid injury and Anthony Davis injury with the Lakers looking finished. Clippers are one game away from elimination also.

    No disrespect to the Jazz or Suns, but I still feel like I'm not ready to accept them as true championship contenders yet.

    I was actually thinking I wouldn't be shocked to see Luka will an undermanned team to the Finals ala LeBron during that 07 Cavs run.

    They'd have to get extremely hot and fortunate for that. They are way, way too reliant on the 3-ball and can't consistently power through if that isn't dropping.

    It does feel like they are getting that luck a little bit.

    Murray hurt on Denver; Davis hurt on the Lakers; Paul hurt on the Suns.

    The Mavs are not any kind of favorites but I also would not be shocked if Luka won a series or two.

    They don't have the pieces to consistently ride through a storm. They're built inefficiently.

    Once Luka picked up a knock, they had no chance. They lost the momentum they had after Game 1 and 2.

    They've maybe got 1-2 players on their current roster that you'd see as viable contributors on a championship team. They've absolutely bungled their roster building process over the last two seasons.

    Even 1-2 is being generous probably

    Dorian Finney-Smith definitely fits as a 3-and-D guy. Tim Hardaway Jr. is extremely streaky but he can contribute. He's ideal as a 6th man but he essentially has to be the No. 2 on this roster...which further illustrates the problem.

    Luka is 22 but this is the end of year 3. The front office no longer gets the benefit of the doubt, and they've gotta push things to a higher level now.

    I was kinda joking. Every team has at least a handful of good players.

    Porziņģis is what is dooming the Mavs obviously. It was a decent enough risk to take when they made the trade but it is clear he is never going to be everyone thought he might be. 2 more years for 32m, then 34m and then a player option for another 36m.

    He is undoubtedly a rising star. A very talented guy. If he works just as hard, he will rise to the top. The main thing is not to get sick with star fever and not take training lightly.
