    146 million and 4 years remaining for a guy who was afraid and took no 4th quarter shots in his last 4 playoff games.

    Maybe the Sixers could get Porzingas for him.

    Simmons didn't miss a shot in 4th quarter in any of the last four games. Everything is just a matter of perspective…

    It is not like he passed up any wide open dunks because he so scared to shoot or anything.

    How dare you disrespect the maxing rim protector presence that is Trae Young.

    I guess I’m going for Milwaukee now, would be neat to see Giannis win a ‘ship.

    Wisconsin sports fan is going to need something to celebrate before Rodgers kicks them in the balls by forcing his way out of Green Bay.

    Nothing has been certain in these playoffs except Ben Simmons being scared to take a shot.

    I would put the odds on "A current starter gets hurt within the next 3 games" at like -150 at this point

    I changed my vote: Giannis has time to win a ‘ship, Chris Paul does not. Go Suns.

    Giannis got good news in that there's no structural damage to the knee, but he still may not be able to play on it. Can't see the Bucks advancing if he doesn't get healthy.

    Chris Paul deserves to win a championship.

    Giannis isn't playing anymore this year. I'd be shocked if he plays. I could still see the Bucks winning tonight though. Not sure about the series. If the Suns don't win, it would be a massive disappointment. Imagine if the Hawks win it all.

    It's close. Magic and Steph are sure fire 1-2 in no order. I'd think Paul slides right in somewhere.

    Isiah, Stockton, and Big O, but I obviously didn't get to watch Oscar play live.

    Those are the only guys still ahead of him imo.

    Starting lines for an Eastern Conference Finals game:

    Lou Williams, Huerter, Bogdan, Collins, Capella
    vs
    Holiday, Middleton, Tucker, Portis, Lopez
    OK…

    I hope the Hawks win the series purely because Trae Young should be back while Giannis is likely done, and I'd rather not watch a team with their best player sidelined. Hopefully the Hawks can at least force game 7.

    i do feel comforted that no matter what happens, a beloved former sixer is gonna win a championship. pulling for the bucks, for obvious reasons, but also because holiday was a victim of the process, along with dario, so for one of those two getting a title would be pretty sweet.

    want the suns to take it, though.

    The Suns beat Lakers without a healthy AD, Nuggets without Murray, Clippers without Leonard and potentially Bucks without Giannis. If they win it, they still deserve but it was quite the path and some injury luck. That's why it's so important to keep advancing because you never know what will happen with the other team. Talking to you Sixers.

    it really is insane that we'd likely be the healthiest team next to the suns given embiid was playing through his injury and green probably would've been back by now.

    in other news, it was reported the sixers reportedly got an offer for simmons by the pacers for brogdon and a first, which morey didnt take. with simmons pulling out of the olympics to apparently focus on SKILL BUILDING, i wouldnt be surprised, barring a trade offer that couldbt be passed up, to see us start the season with him and see what improvement, if any, actually happened to his offensive game. from there we either keep him, cause he's finally meeting his potential, or he plays well enough during the first half of the regular season that we can ship him out before the deadline.

    I can't see a scenario where he stays going into the season. While he hasn't gone out and demanded a trade, it almost has to happen for his sake and the team's sake. Even if he performs well in the regular season, it has no indication on how he'll do in the playoffs. It's promising if the first offer turned down is Brogdan and a first. That probably won't win them a title but it makes them better. Hopefully there are better trade options to come.

    It speaks to how good KD really is, as even without Kyrie the Nets are still favorites

    I have a fun free NBA yahoo league going on tenth year. I feel like it could use some new blood.

    Anyone interested?

    Looking to draft on Sunday hopefully.

    Our old 2K league was trying to put one together, but it wasn’t gaining much traction.
