    Let’s win this fucking thing. Blazers need to blow out the Grizzlies. Total points matter.

    It'll be like the shortened 3 point line and the "Team Giannis vs Team LeBron" crap at the all star game. It will be something that is dumb when it was thought of, dumb when they announced it, dumb when they do it, and dumb once they waited too long to stop doing it.

    Nah. In 20 years, there will be grown men saying to you “What? There used to be no IST? The fuck? And people cared about games in November? That’s wild. You’re old.”

    I keep thinking.... if we win this thing, the trophy will go.... right next to our summer league trophy, wherever the hell that is. It won't matter at all.

    If you have paid any attention to all the media coverage over the last 6 months- you'd know this by now.

    Its loosely based on a soccer style tournament where the first round is group play

    No. We play Utah, LAL, and PHX one game each on Tournament days. Whoever has the best record out of the four designated games within their group will go onto the knockout games. Winner of the knockout games go the Semi finals and the winners of those games go to the final game for the tournament championship.
