I still think Memphis would have taken this if not for Morant’s injury.

They played better without Ja, you simple can’t assume other players play the same with JA, and Steph has a much easier time when Ja is on the court.

Alright. One of my desired outcomes came to fruition! Ahhhh. Excellent.

Now I certainly hope Bud comes up with something better than "just pass it to Giannis" for game seven.

Usually want the underdog to win but I was rooting for warriors only because i thought they have better chance to beat the suns. Hopefully suns don't even make it to next round.

Bane has been a guy that was missed on his entire career. He played HS basketball at a small school in Indiana, but only had 1 D1 offer and took it at TCU. No instate schools offered him. Then has 4 very productive years at TCU but nobody thought he’d be much of a player at the NBA level.

The guy is one of the strongest players in the league and has a great 3 point shooting stroke. If I was Memphis and had to choose between Jackson/Bane as the 2nd max guy after Morant, I’d pay Bane and let Jackson go

Watching the west playoffs has been so annoying.

The East is stacked, but none of these west teams are out of this world good.

If our FO had their ish together we could’ve at least been in the conversation.

Why didn’t Boston keep Bane? Why didn’t the 29 teams in front of Boston draft him? Why didn’t we draft Tatum?

Tatum learned from the best. Kobe taught him well. Imagine if we had drafted Tatum and kept BI. If AD didn't want to come to LA, we wouldn't have traded for him and would still have Tatum, BI and Lebron in our starting lineup right now. David Stern would have to come back from the grave to disband the Lakers if that were to happen.

If we drafted Tatum, we’d likely have BI or Tatum along side lebron and AD because we couldn’t even trade for WB even if we wanted to. Just too many “what ifs”

Still dont trust Tatum. That guy of course shines in Game 6 when his back against the wall. Lets see how he does when the pressure is back on him. I will eat crow if Im wrong but Im willing to bet Tatum does not step up in Game 7. The big money guys Boston should count on is Jalen Brown and Al Horford. In other words.....Im calling Tatum mentally soft. I always suspected he was soft and nothing in this series has changed my mind of him other than he has gained some playoff experience so he handles the playoffs in general better but lets see how he does in a game 7 at home where the pressure is on him.

It was our own pick to keep but our genius GM decided to traded it away to OKC for a year of rental of Dennis. and BTW, Bane wanted to play for us.

I’ll never understand Magic falling in love with Lonzo. And Fultz was an extremely risky pick given his lack of experience (he only broke out his senior year of HS and was mediocre at Washington, didn’t even lead his team to winning anything).

Celtics got extremely lucky.

If we'd drafted Tatum, he and BI would have been shipped out to New Orleans for Anthony Davis.

Because Dr Strange wasn't on the scouting team to go into the future and see who will be good as you have the luxury of doing.

Tatum is sink or swim.

He will shoot you to the win
Or chuck you to a loss
Major ball hog seeking individual goals first
