    Lebron, as good as he is, is no killer like Kobe was. I don't see it in him. Age is catching up with him as well IMO. Time to look at the team and project in a long-term perspective and post-Lebron already. We really need at least 2 superstar signings this summer and to the keep the likes of Ingram at least. I was highly critical of Ingram earlier in the season but the past 2 months he has been a different beast altogether and it is hard to look past him. Kuzma on the other hand is disappointing and talent wise Ingram was always the bigger talent. Things might have returned to "normality" now.
    We were very good around November-December, up until that Christmas Day game against the Warriors. After the Lebron and Rondo injury the team went to complete shit. I also did not understand the Zubac trade at all. Why would you trade such a big prospect away??

    Yes, that was the key moment. Lebron's injury messed things up and the final blow was the whole AD situation that was handled wrongly by all parties and which contributed to the implosion within the squad. It has not been the same since.

    No, I already commented that Zubac trade a few posts back. Magic must have smoked some serious shit or had one bottle of wine too many. Anyway while I liked Zubac I doubt that he will be anything more than a decent center. So not the end of the world but obviously it does Magic and the organization no favors when looking at the overall picture which is not pretty considering what most of the fanbase rightly could have hoped for. Not even making the playoffs (most likely) is a huge blow.

    We need 1 or 2 superstar signings (preferably 2) this summer. That and trying to keep Ingram if he continues his rise. Rest, with the exception of Lebron are all surplus to requirements. Even Rondo given his age although I would try to keep him.

    Really not bothering to mess my sleep schedule completely to catch Lakers game (unless it is a weekend game or I can take a day off if I feel like it) at 04:35 in the morning or earlier depending on the kickoff time in Cali. Not worth it. If I was based in California I would obviously watch as many games as possible but this mess? No, thank you.

    @wisconsincule mate what is your take on Giannis OVER 24.5 points (1.83) tonight against the Pacers at home? Likely or not in your mind? Been a while since I threw money at Giannis (almost always a banker) or at anything for that matter.

    Never mind, looks like he won't be starting from the start. Too risky if he is coming off the bench and playing limited minutes. Alas. Will probably still watch the game and might do a live bet involving him or others or the game as a whole.

    EDIT: He ended up starting and it was a banker like usual.

    Ingram has DVT, out for season.
    This -in some cases- can be a serious condition, it was what ended Chris Bosh career. Hope a speedy recovery for him and hopefully it won't affect his career.
