    Probably Ant. He hates Gobert too. Most overpaid, overrated big in the game. Teammates hate him and he hasn't earned a single accolade he has. That trade destroyed that team and will end up making the best player they've had since KG leave as soon as he can. You can't convince me that he is better than Kessler straight up, but they also gave up Vando, Beas, all the picks, and f***ed the trade market for half the season. One of the worst trades in NBA history.

    Anyway, regarding our matchup with them: we're not losing that.
    - they lost their version of Vando in McDaniels and without him Bron will feast.
    - this fight is awful for chemistry. You maybe expect this if they lost and they missed out on the post-season. But no, this was from a win.
    - KAT is a mental short person when the lights are bright
    - Gobert is a bum, if he plays and AD has taken him to task many a times. He shouldn't be allowed to play. The punch should be result in a team suspension.
    - DLO owes them his revenge game.
    - Bron found his 3 ball.

    He's right, BUT they have to kiss his a** and do whatever they can to make it work (spoiler: it's not going to). He's their $40m man AND they gave up the farm+ to get him.

    holy sh** that's real? what a mess. glad that gobert trade is already backfiring on them so badly considering it completely effed up the trade market

    as for the matchup with the wolves, edwards is the only one who worries me. well him, and whatever other scrub they have who could potentially play the game of his life. not worried about KAT or gobert at all

    Jaden McDaniels fracturing his hand when he punched the wall: dude will make one of the All-NBA Defensive teams. Now he's out. This could be a huge break. Gotta have a killer instinct, though. Just 'cuz Gobert has damaged them we can't take 'em lightly.

    Our D has kinda sucked that last few games, too. Let's face it. Utah had what? 76 paint points? And we weren't really getting many hands up on their 3s. I know, I know, it's a completely different season starting Tue, but worrying about the Lakers has been a lifetime job for me.

    for those with questions about the NBA Playin and how it works:

    How many teams are in the NBA Play-In Tournament?
    Eight teams compete in the NBA Play-In Tournament each year.

    These eight teams are seeded Nos. 7-10 based on the Eastern and Western Conference regular season standings. Each conference has four teams in the NBA Play-in Tournament.

    What is the NBA Play-In Tournament structure?
    The tournament is single-elimination for the No. 9 and No. 10 seeds in each conference and double-elimination for the No. 7 and No. 8 seeds in each conference.

    Within each conference, the No. 7 seed hosts the No. 8 seed and the No. 9 seed hosts the No. 10 seed to start things off.

    The winner of a 7-8 game becomes the conference’s No. 7 seed and advances to face the No. 2 seed in the first round. The loser of the 7-8 game gets another shot at the playoffs later in the play-in bracket.

    The loser of the 9-10 game is eliminated from playoff contention. The winner moves on to face the loser of the 7-8 game for the final playoff spot in their respective conference.

    For a clearer visual, here is what the NBA Play-In Tournament looks like for one conference:

    • No. 8 seed at No. 7 seed – winner becomes conference’s No. 7 seed
    • No. 10 seed at No. 9 seed – loser is eliminated
    • No. 9/10 winner at No. 7/8 loser – winner becomes conference’s No. 8 seed, loser is eliminated
    How many days between games are there in the NBA Play-In Tournament?
    Along with home court, the loser of the 7-8 game has another advantage over the winner of the 9-10 game in the Play-In Tournament finale.

    The 7-8 game for each conference is played on the Tuesday following the end of the regular season, while both 9-10 games are on the ensuing Wednesday. From there, the 7-8 loser hosts the 9-10 winner on Friday, giving the former an additional day of rest.

    While the playoffs begin that Saturday, the eventual No. 8 seed gets a day off before beginning the series against its conference’s No. 1 seed on Sunday.

    Do NBA Play-In Tournament stats count?
    The NBA still doesn’t have a formal method for logging stats from Play-In Tournament games.

    They aren’t regular season games, of course, so it wouldn’t make sense to count Play-In stats under that classification. By the league’s logic, it won’t count Play-In stats as playoff stats, either, since the Play-In is used for teams to reach the playoffs.

    Since the Play-In Tournament was introduced, the league has yet to create a definitive system for recording numbers from those games.

    What did you expect Gobert to do after Anderson told him to shut the f*** up and called him a b**** ?

    Both players think they're better than they are

    somebody losing their job over recording this, but maybe they got pizzaid enough to make it worth it. Last job at an NBA arena for sure though.

    I don't care about Gobert (who I think is a fine player), but SloMo is funny...

    Dude, you are a scrub. And not even a cool SA scrub as they didn't keep you...
