Radford legend Carlik Jones earned G League Player of the Month honors for February. The Bulls just signed him to a two-way deal for the rest of the year. Unfortunately every time he's been promoted, he sits on the bench for all but a minute or two per game.

He needs to go to a team like Houston or San Antonio

They’re the regular season team. Fangraphs has them with the 7th best odds to come out of the west behind the lakers

All the experts thought Sacramento was dum trading Halliburton.  But it has worked out and now Sabonis is a star. Nice to see them make the playoffs after so many years.

Kidd admitted he was ordered to lose. Here’s hoping the NBA takes away their pick

LOL. The Heat rested three starters last night and hurt the Wizards chances. Teams do this all the time. They are going nowhere this year so a smart move.

Teams do it, but never say it. Kid said Cuban told him to lose. Given how important gambling is to the NBA, it’d expect them to come down hard on admissions that games are being thrown

it just seems crazy that the Mavericks don't even make the playoffs after going to the conference finals last year. They need to clean house.

yabut going into last night they were a half game out of 10th.  Tanking to avoid the playoffs is a bit different from tanking when you are well out of playoff position.

Watch the rest of the team while Luka is on offense and you’ll see levels of boredom unrivaled since Iverson was in Philly. Combine that with being a zero on defense, when he gets back instead of complaining about non-calls, and you really have the early 2000s Phillies. Unfortunately, the league is better. I think last year is going to be the outlier in Luka’s career.

No comparison. Iverson took a ragtag bunch to the finals in 2000.  That group was no very talented offensively.  But they played tenacious defense. Aaron McKie. Eric Snow. Tyrone Hill. George Lynch. Mavs problem is they let Brunson go and traded away role guys who played defense like Dorian Finnegan Smith. And Dinwiddie. You don’t expect 6 foot nothing to play defense and rebound. You kind of do for a 6’10” guy.

They were unwilling to do 4 for 50 for Brunson before last season. That’s Ernie level short sighted. I don’t see how the convince good players to come play with Luka. Brunson has come into his own now, Bridges is looking much better.

First two games were blowouts. But a Knicks and Cavs in a good one.

Knicks pull off the road win with a couple of offensive rebounds in the closing moments.

Westbrook without any scoring responsibility was absolutely amazing last night. That may be one of the best defensive games that I've ever seen

I'm starting to think that Beal may not be a superstar
