    Recently was in LA to watch a couple games. Lakers are indeed trash, their effort is like a roller coaster ride with the highs and lows. They shouldn't of ever traded for Westbrook. That killed what depth they had for a player that will never work with how they play, regardless of Davis being hurt or not.

    Westbrook is getting so much hate and deservedly so. The worst player with good stats ever. Horrible attitude too and refuses to change his playing style (just stop shooting 3's). By all accounts he's had a horrendous year but if you look back he's on par with his career stats in terms of efficiency (FG%, 3PT%, TO's). Very surprised when they traded for him in how bad it looked on paper and its played out exactly like everyone thought it would. AD signing was slightly better but he doesn't seem to be a franchise guy either. His teams have always been awful before coming to LA. If I had to pick between AD and RW I'd still go with AD but neither are players to build a franchise around. At least LA won a ring with AD so you could call it a success.

    Melo and Westbrook are also both toxic prima donnas that never won anything.

    Westbrook to Knicks in the offseason or another team like that, that isn't going to compete for anything but a play-in type spot at best.

    If AD could stay healthy the Lakers would be much better, he's an elite type player but I agree he's not a franchise kind of guy. In all honesty, there are not many true franchise guys.

    I think the biggest mistake the Lakers made was letting Caillou walk, great for the Bulls though.

    They should have done whatever possible to resign Alex Caruso, he is only getting better!

    Makes you wonder if management is earning their pay when they sign dudes like this.

    Westbrook is a brutal fit on this team and just not to be showing any effort, making over 40m this year. Crazy.

    His market value is tanking this year.

    Playoffs basically locked in minus play-in stuff.

    I like the raps playing 76ers. Convincing win the other night without FVV & OG.

    Best option in for the Raps playing 76ers, they seem to have issues with the Celtics.

    Sixers are the best matchups out of all the potential. Like any team, they're terrified of what happens if Embiid and Harden get hot. Embiid is virtually guaranteed to go off, but Harden has struggled more than you'd since he joined the Sixers. Plus, the federal vaccine requirement is probably one of the more odd, but kinda funny, competitive edges a team could have.

    It's going to keep their best perimeter defender out of the games in Toronto. As long as Harden doesn't regain form, I really think the Raps can win the series and even if he does they have multiple guys to show different looks. Raps have no one to guard Embiid 1 on 1, see if the regular season success carries over. (3-1 in favor of Raps)

    Bucks sweep Bulls?

    Celtics should take Nets


    If Luka isn't 100%, Jazz should win.

    Grizz & Twolves will be fun - Grizz should win

    GS & Nuggets - Steph is apparently good to go, Joker will dominate.. picking GS to win

    I think Toronto takes out the sixers
    Nets in 7 games

    Raps got rolled last night.

    Jazz won, Mavs were close all game without Luka.

    Twolves looked like the better team, still will be a good series.

    GS wins, Joker has too much of a burden without the other top players (Murray / MPJ).

    Booker left in 3rd quarter and didn't come back, hamstring injury.

    dayum Nets got swept, Boston is a really good team this year. Raptors doing well. With Booker injured, Pelicans are hanging on.

    The Raptors are so funny to watch because there's so little emotion coming from it's core 7-8 players. Barnes is the only person showing any kind of hype and everyone else is just like "zero-fun, sir". Like you'd think Boucher would have some kind of energy after any one of his handful of dunks when Young finds him on the backdoor cut, but it doesn't even seem like Boucher's heart rate went up (I love Boucher by the way).

    All business to get back to Toronto!
    I hope they make history

    Boucher isn't my favorite, he generally does okay stuff but he bites too much on D with fakes going for blocks. He's definitely improved with that but still more to go. I don't think the raps resign him unless it's at a market discount.

    Boston sweep Nets, can't say I saw that coming before the games started. Tatum playing unreal.

    Luka was awesome last night. I think the Jazz blow it up after they lose the series.

    Every time Boucher shoots a 3 it looks like he's shooting for the first time in his life.
