    I don't know about that security. Financial, sure... but if the Knicks have two bad seasons, he's out. Fizdale also was a long-term answer, and they almost asked him to compete for the playoffs in his second season. Unless Dolan sells the team, long-term and Knicks can't work together in a sentence.

    It’s been a long road, but it’s great to see Andre Roberson back on the court for the Zombie Sonics. He hasn’t played since January 2018 when he ruptured his patellar tendon and then a small fracture later on in the year during his rehab.

    He was a defensive stud. Couldn’t shoot the 3, but that’s been his main focus other than getting healthy. So that would be huge for them if he added a consistent 3 to his game.

    The first restart game is tomorrow at 3:30PM pacific. Pretty surreal to be saying that, but here we are. It’s quite the luxury to have that in the background while working.

    And... I couldn't be less excited about the NBA coming back.

    Part of it, sure, is the Dubs not being there. But still...

    No no, I think we can all agree that no matter who’s left, playoff basketball isn’t the same without Steph, Klay and Dray together.

    I am loving the NBA being back. First NBA game I have watched on our new 65" TV. Really makes a difference.

    It is extremely strange not having the Warriors in this tournament though I will admit.

    Clippers need Lou and Harrell. Their rotation just isn’t the same. They have the most talented squad to get past the Lakers. Paul George being 100% healthy is HUGE.

    Great to have the NBA back. Felt like a kid getting all excited to watch the first game and Zion.

    Clips almost beat the Lakers... Damn that balding Caruso

    Both games last night wee entertaining, and came down to the last shot.

    Shit man, you really have to suck at basketball to not have made this 22 team tournament!

    Watching the Magic right now and you know, I get the rumors with Aaron Gordon and the Warriors... but I’d much rather be rumored to pry Jonathan Issac away. He’s still very young, but he’s high energy and has a lot of skills defensively. Think he’d be great to help alleviate the defensive responsibilities off Dray.

    He would also be the most untouchable guy they have

    We could land the #1 pick , offer it , and they would (rightly) laugh at us. Defensive stud

    I know it’s waaay early but damn, those scrimmages and some PT today, all I can is when it comes to Bol Bol is... damn.

    I may need that old bang head against wall emoji that we used to have if he continues to develop and Smiley and Poole don’t last, which is very possible.

    Warriors are idiots for passing on Bol Bol. I knew it then, and now it seems very obvious.

    Houston showed out on Dallas. And then they just beat Milwaukee. These guys look sharp. I said before the season resumed that I believed this format favors their style. Heck, the current NBA rules favor their offensive style. As much as we all dislike em, a conference finals appearance wouldn’t be out of the ordinary. Especially if they seed against the Lakers in the semifinals.

    All idiots. Bol Bol has a big connection with the Warriors. Fans loved his Dad, and he would have been one of the most popular players day 1. Sure he had a terrible foot injury, that cost him a lot of time. But he was going to be a very high pick before that. He is 21 years old and will be a star in the next few seasons.

    I don't know about a star, but certainly a contributor.

    I still can't see Poole contributing to anything.

    Oh, well... As long as we keep Paschall long term, I'm not going to complain about last year's draft. We've got a huge steal with him. And teams passing on him several times til we got him was the biggest stupidity of the draft.

    What's gotten into TJ Warren? Dude is balling. Any chance the Warriors can get Kelly Oubre Jr. for next to nothing like Indy did with Warren?
