Jackie Moon picked up by the Warriors. Should guarantee a title.

Dinwiddie just hit a game winning shot against Brooklyn as time expired.

watched the Celtics lose in OT at the Raptors last night.  The Celtics were without Tatum, Brown, Horford, and Time Lord Williams.  Time Lord is out with a meniscus tear so he's likely to miss several weeks but the others were just minor ailments and personal reasons. They almost pulled it off even without those starters, but I think they slip back a bit to anywhere in the top 4 of the east.  Fun to watch a team that's unafraid to switch a point guard onto a big, which you can do with Smart.  They'll miss R. Williams, though.  He can cover for a lot of mistakes.

When you land at Logan Airport, there should be a poster of Smart and Marchand that says, "beware of your surroundings.  There are thieves and muggers willing to assault you when you aren't looking."

Lakers drop their sixth in a row. Two behind SA for the last spot in the west.  Two of their final four are against Phoenix and GS.

Bucks tanking to drop to 3rd  and get Chicago instead of the winner of ATL-Brooklyn?

Looks like the Celts get the winner of 7 v 8.

Watching Nets Celtics. Don't boo Kyrie. It only makes him want to show up

Simmons will return and he will make the difference in the series.  Playoff Ben.   :hysterical:

we can hope, but I will pass rather than take the easy shot

kind of a shocker, but Marcus Smart was named Defensive Player of the Year.  Bridges and Goebert finished 2d and 3d.

First guard to win since Payton.

TBH, I'm surprised.  On raw stats, a small cannot block shots and dominate like a big, which is why I never thought he had a chance.

Imagine the Wiz could have had Maxey instead of Deni.  And Jordan Poole instead of Rui.  Oh my.

I've heard some discussion that it should not be a big guy any more since so much of the game is played on the perimeter.

I've thought that there really should be a Selke Award for best perimeter defender.  Call it the Gary Payton Award.  Then have a "best interior defender" or just a DPOY.

Unreal win by the Mavs.   Kleber might be the moist underrated role player in the league.  Brunson got paid tonight

Kyrie is the man of a thousand shots.  He seems comfortable from any spot and any angle.

If Robert Williams is truly the "timelord" why does he not something about when these games are played so he can be back from injury?

Timelord is about his ability to master time in a different dimension. For normal players, there is a time practice or games start, but timelord has no watch and showed up when he envisioned it is time to arrive as rookie. Thus, the nickname from teammates. He's learned to operate in our reality, and may even be back early from his meniscus tear

Heck of a shot by Embiid to win the game.

Lots of injuries out there. Now Booker and Middleton out.  Throwing a monkey wrench into everyone’s brackets.

Timelord announces he will play game 3. He must have shifted time again and visited Saturday to know this.
