    The Bucks were pretty much in synch for the first half of the season. They were winning. It’s the whole reason they’re still second right now and not fighting for a play-in game spot under Doc. With Griffin, they would’ve been even better right now.

    The Lakers are the 9 seed and are treated like they are the 1st seed. Why does ESPN keep pandering the Lakers when they faced the Wizards and lost by 5 last game???
    The Suns are the 6 seed, they have 3 superstars, 3&D guys like Allen and O’Neale, THEY HAVE A BETTER DEFENSE than the Lakers, and they have more signature wins than the Lakers.
    The Suns beat a fully healthy Nuggets team in Denver without DBook, and recently beat them again in Denver…. they also beat Minnesota, Cleveland and other contenders.
    I’m disappointed in Austin Rivers selling out to ESPN

    It’s kinda crazy Allen and Holiday are both great roles players and leading the league in 3pt %
    Bucks could very well get bounced by the 76ers or the Heat and the Pacers have their number this season so idk

    Wht she talking about Giannis ain’t even 30 yet 😂

    As Griffin sits at home collecting the rest of his contract I wonder if he will consult with the bucks on how to improve

    I completely disagree, lakers definitely ran out of gas and THAT is why they got swept. The way the team was last year they had to use SOO much energy just getting into the playoffs and then slowly beating the teams to get into the western conference finals is why they ran out of gas, they were playing catchup or from behind and everyone knows, you spend far more energy doing that. On paper lakers should have at least won 2 games against the nuggies or beat them in 7. Instead they got swept which only happens when you run out of gas against a team playing good.

    April 5, 2024 at 1:29 pm

    Guaranteed 2nd round exit based on their head coach lol

    April 5, 2024 at 1:31 pm

    It’s very possible because dame is super inconsistent when playing alongside giannis and if that’s the case giannis is all they got and you can slow him down if you try hard enough they going out first or second round depending on who they play promise you that

    I would normally say this will be the biggest underachieving team in history, but then you look at the current suns squad which is not doing nothing either
