Yes, Luka needs some more help if his team is to go any further consistently.

You guys know more than I do. I don't think this has ever happened before?

I think this makes a good looking Tweet more than anything else to be honest. Less madness, more logical. The Nets won ABA titles. I believe the Suns, Nuggets, Jazz and Clippers were all, for lack of a better way to describe them, expansion teams that came around in the late 60s/early 70s when the ABA was a great threat to their league. Add that to the dynasties of the Lakers, Celtics, Bulls, Lakers again, the Warriors, not to mention the titles that were won by the Pistons, Spurs, and Heat and there are going to be several teams that just don't have titles in the last 45 or so years, there's only so many titles to go around.

And some try to discount the ABA for some reason, but the NBA was threatened by them, they got some of the best talent during their time and today's NBA would be unrecognizable without the ABA and what they stole pulled in from that league after the merger.

Excellent point

One more slam like that from Blake and the Pistons have grounds for a lawsuit.

The Nets won over the Bucks 125-86 last night. The guys on TNT were low key raging. Barkley of course said the Bucks should be ashamed of themselves. At one point Brooklyn was up by 50.

Piston fans are livid. They got next to none of this out of Blake.
I would be... if I was watching anything this year. I'll let my fellow fans be mad for me :) Last year I think the only game I saw was in person on a pre-covid trip to Toronto. This year I might not see one game...just not enough time left to go around for me to watch these days.

Before seeing that bracket in the previous post if I had to guess who the final four teams left in West were...I might have gone 0/4.

Well okay then. Didn't look bad, but replay showed it was. Hard to think of a worse way for the MVP to potentially end their season, but here we are.

And we are tied. This was the Kawhi dunk you might hear referenced. And the actual faces of Jazz players as it was happening.

Gotta be kidding me. It's like it's April Fool's Day and Groundhog's Day wrapped into one. If he's vaccinated (no confirmation yet that he is), he will likely be able to miss less time than the standard protocols. Ideal situation is Clippers vs. Jazz going to Game 7 and that's obviously very much on the table right now.

Is NBA usually this injury affected in play offs?

Something that could be statistically analyzed, but my gut reaction would be no. Specially the number of big stars going down.
