    Yeah well, there's a 3 year deal being offered to him. It's on the table. It's all over sports talk down here. Do I think he'll play in China? No, but he's been offered a lot of $$$$$ to play there.

    I like Saric and Covington, but they're not going to put the team in a place to compete with Boston, Toronto and Milwaukee. This was a great deal for the Sixers.

    It was a good deal for the T-Wolves too, who were going to lose Butler after the season and get nothing in return.

    Well, just saying farewell to Mr. Wade. Had a great career. There's not a whole lotta sports history in South Florida compared to the north east, Midwest, etc. We've had championships in the Big 3 sports at least. Wishing all the best for Dwyane Wade. For a generation of Floridians, he was Dan Marino.

    Which team do you think will succeed with drafting the wonderkid Zion Williamson?
    I sure hope it will be Lakers.

    ^ The teams with the best chance (read: most ping-pong balls) are the Knicks, Cavaliers, and Suns.

    Hopefully, they figured it out.

    Hoping for literally anyone but the Lakers.

    They have. That Simmons kid is a hell of a player. Young kid too.

    In terms of match ups, as a Bucks fan I would rather play ANYONE else in the Eastern Conf. than the Sixers. The Dinosaurs or Shamrocks just don't match up with us like Phila..

    I'm rooting for Milwaukee. Last time they won a championship Lou Alcindor was their center.

    I'm watching Sixers/Nets. You know, gotta admit I miss the days when players would play in the paint and charge in and stuff the ball. I just saw one of the Brooklyn players steal a pass, run to the other end, stop at the 3 point line (and the lane was EMPTY. NO ONE GUARDING HIM). He shoots his 3, and misses. The game is almost unwatchable.

    Euro-ball has overtaken the NBA for sure

    Well, the very thing you stated that I responded to, everyone plays long ball. Very little low post play. 7ft-ers playing more like forwards. No enforcers, no intimidators. Flopping.

    But they don't do that in European leagues.

    I blame the Warriors. Steph, Klay.
