Lakers gonna win it due to that massive lead but I hate playing prevent offense.

It was a surprisingly competitive series even with the Heat injuries. They played really well. And are a much better team than I thought going into this thing.

What if I told you three years ago a team with Dwight Howard, JR Smith, Dion Waiters and Rondo won an NBA title?

Whole bubble experience turned out to be a lot better than I expected. No corona got spread around. The games were competitive and fun. No home court advantage. Nice social justice messages from a sports league. etc. Good experience.

just fyi, I'm taking a bit of a hiatus from the bore. I may be back around for the next season or so. If anyone wants to take over the thread and make silly thread titles just pm one of the mods. I'm sure they can rip the opening post from me and hand it to somebody else so you can change thread titles. See you gents next year some time.

The first part of the Bill Simmons podcast is really good where they interview Jared Dudley. Gives you real insight into what went on in the bubble while playing for the Lakers. Check it out.

The Van Gundy's are both back!

Stan Van Gundy met with New Orleans Pelicans officials on Tuesday, emerging as one of four expected finalists for the franchise's coaching job, sources told ESPN.
Quote
Clippers assistant coach Ty Lue's candidacy for the Rockets' head-coaching job has gathered significant momentum after a meeting with Houston's ownership and management Monday, sources told ESPN.

The Rockets are competing with the Clippers for Lue and could try to extend an offer before Los Angeles has completed its search process, but that wasn't expected to happen before Houston met with former coach Jeff Van Gundy this week, sources said.

Van Gundy met with Rockets ownership and management Wednesday about the job, and conversations with the team will continue Thursday, sources said.

Both Lue and Van Gundy are prominent parts of the Rockets' and Clippers' coaching searches -- and Lue has been the Clippers' front-runner since Doc Rivers was dismissed on Sept. 28, sources said.

The NBA is pursuing a pre-Christmas Day start and a reduced regular-season schedule for the 2020-2021 season, abandoning plans to delay the opening with hopes of incorporating fans back into arenas, sources told ESPN.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the NBA is proposing several changes to next season that include a 72-game regular season, a play-in tournament and the likelihood of no All-Star Game or All-Star Weekend in Indianapolis, sources said. The league is considering a two-week break at the midway point of the season, sources said.

The NBA shared these plans in a call with the league's board of governors on Friday afternoon, and the league plans to move quickly to complete negotiations with the National Basketball Players Association to implement the plan, sources said.

The reduction in regular-season games -- which would help accommodate a play-in tournament format for both conferences -- allows the NBA to finish the season before the Summer Olympics in Japan.

Lakers get: Dennis Schroder

Thunder get: Danny Green, 2020 first-round draft pick (No. 28)


Note: This expected trade can be formally agreed to in principle on Monday and finalized after the Lakers make their first-round pick (No. 28) on Wednesday.

The New York Knicks have declined the $15.75 million team option on forward Bobby Portis and the $1.7 million team option on guard Theo Pinson. New York also waived guards Elfrid Payton and Wayne Ellington and center Taj Gibson, all of whom had partially guaranteed contracts for 2020-21. The moves free up $40 million in cap space for the Knicks.
I like Bobby Portis and Elfrid Payton, they deserve to be backups on a good team instead of playing for the Knicks.

Quote
The Dallas Mavericks have dealt Seth Curry to the Philadelphia 76ers for Josh Richardson and the No. 36 pick in the 2020 NBA draft (Tyler Bey), a source told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
I like this trade too for both teams.

Steven Adams to Pelicans as part of that Jrue deal now.

Guard Elfrid Payton has agreed to one-year, $5 million deal with the New York Knicks, agents Aaron Mintz and Ty Sullivan of CAA Basketball tell ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Forward Bobby Portis has agreed to a two-year, $7.5 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, his agent, Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports, told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

What a strange trade. It's almost like they traded because nobody else would trade with them. Both teams might be worse off after the deal, Houston "wins" just because they managed to get a first rounder.
