    Its Giannis' fault they passed on Nick Nurse and hired Griffin.

    if were gonna play that game...

    they had a good record with dame and they fired a head coach (cause they were clearly unhappy with their play), so its not like dame made them the world beaters, did he

    I think they’re conveniently forgetting that the Heat knocked them out last year when Giannis went down. I can tell you that Dame at least gives you a punchers chance if that were to happen again. Jrue ain’t carrying a team on his back.

    If they do, it'll be in spite of Doc, but he'll get the credit anyway.

    So true. Miami doesn't win that 7 game series with a healthy Giannis and they probably don't win that series if Dame is there to hold it together.

    We don't want it to get messy yet. We want Lionel to show up in 2028.

    Denver manhandled everyone. They only lost 4 games total in the playoffs. Miami on the other hand played surprisingly well and also beat both the Knicks and Boston. I totally agree they should never have got through Milwaukie but they earned what they got.

    milwaukee team that lost to miami, if you put dame on that team instead of giannis, thats still not a better team than what dame had in portland (or if it is, its slightly better)

    they wouldnt win the chip, thats my point...

    And my point was that they’d still have a better shot at winning the series with Dame than they did with Jrue if Giannis is out.

    The only team Dame ever had here that was close to his supporting cast would be in Milwaukee right now without Giannis was the the team 9 fucking years ago and that's if Wes doesn't blow his Achilles and that team didn't have one super bench player like Portis who could have made up for one of our front court guys missing games.

    I'm surprised how little talk there was of how soft Milwaukee's schedule was the first half. Certain people would have harped on that aspect if it were any team not featuring Dame... The second half of the season will be an interesting test of whether the Bucks' players and coaches can gel.

    Oh shit PatBev backing up Dame. That's a little awkward but at least one of them is professional enough to make it work (Dame).

    Jesus, wtf are they doing? Best way to disengage Dame even further is by having this a-hole chirping at him in practice.

    I haven’t seen chemistry this potentially bad since Whitsett brought back Rod Strickland.

    Maybe teammates hating each other is the fire that team needs??? I'm really here for watching Dame and PatBev jawing at each other as one is subbed for the other in a game that isn't going well.
