    Y'all crazy if you don't think ~6 week offseason + condensed schedule doesn't affect the quality of games. Lebron getting older but he's never been out as long as he has this past regular season. Luka, Mitchell, Morant, Murray, Jaylen Brown all young players with serious injuries at some points of the season.
    Told all you keyboard warriors that we're getting an inferior product this season. How do you not appreciate the strain of a normal season + playoffs and then compound that with 6 week offseason and condensed schedule? Now its Kawhi, Harden, Irving, Embiid, Conley and it keeps going. IF you're gonna say bubble season was a fluke then this season is even more so.

    Lebron just went on a twitter rant about the same topic. His message aside the people calling out his ability to construct a proper English sentence is Its funny cuz when you read it in James' voice it makes sense but if you read it in anyone else's voice its pure illiteracy. What the hell is RIM REST?

    Still really on the fence about this.

    Kyrie's injury is a freak accident. Shit like that happens all the time.

    Embiid, Davis and Paul (for his shoulder not the new COVID issue) have a history of injury problems. Paul, moreso during the playoffs.

    Lebron can be chalked up to mileage. Yeah, he spends $1M every year on maintenance but he's increasingly asked to do more for longer periods by his teams. That shit is bound to catch up regardless of how much money he spends. Harden is very much in the same boat, though there's no news on how much he spends on body maintenance. He's a very durable guy (and plays practically every game), but he also shouldered a very heavy load for the majority of his career in Houston.

    2 game 7's on the weekend were instant classics with the favorites in both series lost on their home floor. With how unpredictable this playoffs has been nothing is a lock. One of the few silver linings of so many injuries knocking out the favorites has been the unpredictability of the playoffs. My least favorite part of NBA is the predictability of the season. You typically know who's going to play in the finals at the start of the season and there's only a small handful of interesting/meaningful games in the playoffs. The last championship of the remaining 4 teams was 50 years ago.

    What a disaster Simmons has been but its been fascinating to watch arguably one of the best players in the league afraid to shoot or even dunk the ball. That guy needs a new city and some counselling.

    I don't like Trae Young very much but he's been playing very well throughout these playoffs, even though the Hawks almost gave game 1 away. That Trae / Luka draft trade doesn't look as terrible now considering how the Hawks have been built. They're a better team than the Mavs.
    Young gives me Reggie Miller vibes, which is odd because I like Young and I hated Miller.

    That makes sense. I just don't like him, he's talented though. Maybe I'll like him more when he can't hunt for fouls with "unnatural movements" anymore.

    Raps should sign and trade Lowry for Simmons since his value hasn't been this low ever haha.

    Draft lottery night, along with game 2 suns / clips

    I kinda want to see if Toronto can swing a trade with Detroit to try to get Cunningham or with Cleveland to get Mobley. But, admittedly, that is a pipe dream because it only benefits the Raptors.

    Drafts are notorious for being a crapshoot. You used to be guaranteed a franchise star with the 1st pick every other year or so but its been even more unpredictable lately. Last couple years you had #1 picks like Fultz and Ayton drafted over Tatum and Doncic. There's a star somewhere in the draft but nearly impossible to say where. Raps' thing is drafting and developing under the radar int'l prospects anyway.

    David Stern must be rolling in his grave with all these small market teams in the conf finals. Clips are a small market to me since very few ppl in LA follow them.

    That's basically sports in general though. There's a huge amount of luck in determining how a player's career plays out. Factor in that bad teams/organizations get the best prospect, it can be a stacked deck against a prospect to actually succeed. The best thing a top prospect can ask for is that a good team gets decimated by injury that forces them to tank for the year (like the Raptors, for example) and end up in the lottery.
