    Watching Siakam and Hart out there tonight, its interesting to wonder if the Blazers had been able to acquire Siakam and still change Nurk for Ayton, then having a lineup of;

    Ayton
    Siakam
    Grant
    Hart
    Dame

    Would've been by far the best starting 5 as well as defense in Dame tenure.

    I still go back to the report that Dame didn’t want Ayton.

    This Knicks team is so interesting - so OG is injured and now they are starting the PG McBridge

    7'0 Hartenstein
    6'4 Hart
    6'4 DiVincenzo
    6'2 Brunson
    6'1 McBridge

    He also didn't want Shaedon Sharpe.

    He survived.

    someone said something about the Blazers tried to trade CJ for Gordon.

    ... have you folks ever watched the Blazers?? Aaron would have been stuck at Center, with a bunch of littles whirling around shooting jumpers. It never would have worked. Fans would jump on Gordon for not stopping every opponent bunny.

    Edwards is going to have to find a way to get it going.

    Joker stuck a triple

    trading 6 FRP's for Gobert is beginning to look iffy

    T-wolves got some work ahead. Force a game 7, or buy ice for the boat coolers.

    Got to wonder if the Twolves are feeling a bit broken right now?

    Jokic had 40, his game was top notch.

    The worst part for T-Wolves was seeing Butch McLovin' (aka Christian Braun) outplaying Anthony Edwards.

    MIN still the best remaining team in the way of Denver repeating.

    Holmgren, PJ Washington, Hartenstein, Myles Turner, Horford, Mobley. . . These are no better than Gobert, Anthony Davis, Bam Adebayo

    I quit watching bigs after Nic Richards dunked on the Blazers 12 times. Nobody even tried to get in his way. Powerful slams, rim benders. The Blazers got spanked at home by the worst team in the NBA. (Wizards) But, you know... Anfernee scored 30, and at least it wasn't a blowout. I think Blazer fans got free chicken nuggets for 2 dollars.

    the team "insiders" used Minnesota's rebuild as a possible route for the Blazers. "We can be the Timberwolves" got put on pause.

    As long as the start to rebuilding like Minnesota is focused on having a top 10 NBA player at the age of 22, I'm all for it!
