    Pretty much this. Miami is even smaller than we are. Their starting front court are 6'9" and 6'5" respectively.

    If he's such a Heat kind of player maybe they want to give up Oladipo and Dedmond for him. I'd be cool with that.

    Or maybe he's such a Heat kind of player that we send him and Nurk to the Heat for Bam.

    Oladipo and Dedmond better come with a 1st round pick. Otherwise, no thank you.

    Didn't they have the best record in the East last year? Who did they lose that made them so small?

    Only player Heat would consider trading Bam for is Dame and even then, probably not.

    This is how a grown adult takes accountability and apologizes. One of the best, sincere public apologies I’ve seen. Not a single excuse.

    Lakers down 23 at the half. Another comeback win?

    wizards won at the mavs

    our rivals losing is always a good thing, but can we start winning and put a good run of wins, like 5-0, 5-1, 7-2, 8-3, 9-4, 10-4, 10-5

    were gonna need to in order to move up in the standings

    Rumor on Raptor forum from "interesting source": OG wants out.

    Dallas just finished a 4-game homestand 1-3 with a bad looking loss to the Washington Wizards.
    Luka Dončić committed a stupid foul (which was unsuccessfully challenged), shoving Kyle Kuzma along the side line. Kuzma made one of two free throws, and Dallas had 5 seconds left to score after using their last timeout.

    They didn't even get a shot off. The first inbounds pass to Luka was slapped out of bounds by the wizards, and the next in bounds attempt was caught by Luka then stolen by the wizards on luka's pass attempt.

    the Mavs are 3-8 in their last 11 games following a 7-game win streak.

    I expect Dallas to be buyers at the deadline. Luka has made it pretty clear he wants more talent. I don't know what his contract is but giving him any reason to leave Dallas once he's a FA is a huge mistake.

    Pelicans are on an even bigger slide

    they fattened up their record with an extremely heavy stretch of home games (17 of 24 games at home). And they were 11 games over .500. Then their schedule evened out and they have gone 3-10 since then

    of course, Zion has missed 10 straight games, and 19 games this season, but that's his M.O.

    That mystery OG trade would already be done if it were true. That is what the Raptors want. Not what they’re gonna get.

    Injuries killing the Pels. I can't even remember the last time BI was on the floor. They are out essentially two all-star level players.

    Dallas, just like us, has a pretty weak roster overall. If the shooters aren’t hitting they’re in for trouble because they don’t play any defense.
