    I just posted how I recall people complaining about playoff results… but I don’t recall people saying

    “WHAT THE FUCK ONLY 50 WINS? Fire STOTTS!”

    Spurs have some ballers. I never doubted that they would win. Even without Wemby.

    Of the shitty teams in the top 5 (or bottom 5), Portland and Charlotte should be the #1 and #2 teams in the lotto.

    Detroit had the #1 a while ago, same with the Spurs (and they sure as fuck don't need *ANOTHER* #1 pick again)...and the Wizards tanked 10x worse than Portland did.

    Call me crazy but I feel that the Bucks moving down to the third seed might have been by design in the end.
    I don’t think Doc wanted anything to do with Philly or the Heat in the first round.

    Our playoff performances have been even MORE subpar lately huh?

    Even if we got the #1 pick, I just can't see myself getting all that excited

    Pretty much all the options showed jackshit this year

    I'd gladly sacrifice #1 this year to the basketball gods for #1 next year

    can't be subpar if you're not in the playoffs

    and, to be fair, we didn't pull a Milwaukee bucks and keep everything in place except for the coach.

    We deserve both after missing Wemby by one.

    That was some WWE type of commentating. Love it!

    Unless he's willing to do stuff like this, there's no way that Zach Edey is the next Boban. Boban is one of a kind.

    ^That’s pretty amazing to do all that as a rookie in under 30 minutes a game.

    Can’t believe how the injuries never slowed KD down….. heading straight to the HOF for sure. Wish we had drafted HIM instead of Scoot!

    Why didn't you tell KP to trust Aldridge on Durant instead of going with Oden?

    Our downward trajectory was all your fault!
