    what does "bubble gangsters" even mean? how does a single, shared circumstance invalidate outcomes?

    because wins don't count without crowds? name the actual variables that weren't there that matter? because teams were healthy? god forbid competition among full rosters focused only on basketball. we need hotel food poisoning and people throwing beer on the floor for it to be basketball.

    Yep. What would Chuck know about championships anyway? And who cares what that ringless fool has to say about it?

    He's really enjoyed playing around with the cameras whenever he gets the chance





    Just like how he "talked" to CP3. I support this.

    His fists are real quick. I'm glad he did not go to talk to him.

    LOL. BI would have come flying in too dying to show off his straight right cross honed from a summer including boxing in his training.

    6 rebounds & 4 points in only 9 minutes.

    For context, AD had 7 rebounds in 35 minutes.

    Frank dusted Rondo off and he looked really good considering he hasn't played in 9 days and the 5 minutes he was given in the last one wasn't meaningful. Here he was tasked with keeping the pace and tempo up that Russ had us running with in the 3rd and not to give the game away with both Russ and AD sitting.

    He was superb in limited minutes. That should be his role exactly. 10 minutes or less of high energy Rondo is great.

    I agree. He's in such good shape that he's pretty much always ready to just come in and give maximum effort.

    Rajan is great for an occasional appearance from time to time, in the regular season. If you see him too frequently though it's a problem. Playoff Rondo is a lot better than regular season Rondo.

    Really don't want to lose playoff/coach Rondo.

    If it's just to keep Stan Jo, there's better ways of doing that. Like kicking Baze or DJ off the team. Or waiting till the 15th and including them in a THT deal. Need an actual asset involved for this not to piss me off.

    I really hope we are not making roster decisions to save money.
    If he's important, he must stay.
    If he's not, get Osman back

    But I believe that he probably wants to go. He will have a big role in a fun team who will get to the play-in. Much more interesting than playing in this unorthodox team
