    ...Why in the world would the NBA fix it for the Pelicans? That makes no sense.

    It’s more that I am frustrated with zion going to pelicans instead of my knicks. There were some controversy draft lottieres this century so maybe that why I said rigged. Pelicans now have two 1 in 10 years players, AD was called that and compared to Duncan and now Zion the same. Lakers somehow even with worse odds picked number 4 pick. I hope for trade lakers pelicans AD for kuzma, ingram, ball and no 4 pick?

    The only thing that made the Lakers and Knicks jumping into the top 4 ok for me was watching them get 4th and 3rd respectively as their dream of Zion slipped away.

    Ja on the Grizzlies within Conley will be fun!

    Knicks had the worst record so they did not jump anything, lakers, grizzlies and pelicans did. They had 2%, 6% and 6% for number 1 pick. Grizzlies max 4 years and they will move to Seattle, then I can be their fan, so you want for small market teams to have big stars from draft - it's sound more that you hate knicks and lakers(you are boston fan so I understand that) than you like this small market teams, but it would be better for NBA if zion was in big market like Knicks - more money for the league = more money for the teams.

    The knicks and lakers will always have their fan bases, Zion (or other stars) going to a small market team is good thing for the league because it makes them and the league more competitive. Zion already has a giant following, and I kinda hope they keep market we can see Jrue AD Zion for a bit.

    Yes I don’t like the lakers or knicks lol, they’re horribly run franchises that I hope never recover (Kyrie don’t leave me <3 ). I do like the clippers and nets tho :)

    Dream scenario for this offseason for me is Boston trading Hayward and some picks to GS for Durant, resign Kyrie, bring back Al on a 3 year 60 mil deal, and watch as my favorite player (Jaylen Brown) continues to thrive.

    Ad1. Pelicans had AD for 7 years, they had CP3 for 6 years - they didn't help with fanbase in New Orleans, zion also won't in my opinion. They have saints and football in New Orleans and it's more popular nothing will make Basketball more popular than football not even Lebron James. AD already told that this doesn't change anything and he still wants to be traded.
    Ad2.
    Yes Knicks are run horribly and fans suffer because of it(we have james dolan), so with your argument knicks are run horribly so they don't deserve anything ever to maybe somehow make it around?
    Ad3.
    Sorry to break it to you nothing of this makes sense and won't happen (maybe J. Brown) especially the first one. Maybe you will get AD as there are rumours that Pelicans just hate Lakers so much they won't trade with them. If you do your favourite player could potentially be on Pelicans(at least not in Cobb county jail xD) next year with Zion so good for you :)

    Lol yea but I feel like Zion is way more charismatic than AD and will give NOLA a bigger following. They apparently got 3000 season tickets sold the day after the lotto.

    I feel bad for knicks fans, Dolan should sell. Still don’t want them to be good tho.

    Ugh I’m kinda not into AD anymore, even though he is a top 5 players and would be great on the Celtics. I’d rather be a worse team with the Jays than trade one or both of them for AD (not to mention the trade would probably require Smart or Horford to be involved :( )

    The Blazers were up 73-59 with 8 minutes left in the 3rd.

    They got outscored 51-26 over the final 20 minutes.

    Steph just shows that he was 2 time mvp and 2 times in final before KD. It shows fans of GSW that it will be okay even if KD leaves in free agency. I like this brother vs brother duels :) Apparently Lillard have been playing with separated ribs, so that could be answer for his poor performance. I am so hyped for Bucks in finals with GSW :) We will see raptors are not done yet for sure, blazers kinda are.
