Playoff Harden has arrived early this year.
This needs to be talked about more. His stats might be fine, but if you actually watch Rockets games, Harden has not played well for the last month or so. It’s really been Westbrook that has been carrying the team. It almost looks like Harden is injured or something. Or at least that he doesn’t have his legs under him.

Makes me sick that warriors are going to have a top 5 pick this year, seems almost too convenient that all their stars get injured at the same time, they all get a years rest, add a top 5 pick + Wiggins. Going to dominate again next year for sure if they all stay

Last night was the night while Lebron was sitting on his couch watching the Clippers game he realized he could be in big, big trouble. Clippers are clicking on all cylinders now. Kawhi is entering assassin mode. Unless one of George/ Kawhi get hurt by the time the Lakers play them i dont see how the Lakers beat them. Lebron.will have to go in god mode like he did in game 6 vs the Warriors. Clippers with those moves they made are so deep. It will be very interesting to see.

They are so unbelievable defensively. Only the Bucks can match that I think.

The Clippers need to figure out how to not play Dallas in round 1. THat's just an upset waiting to happen scenario.

Bucks reminded me a lot of pre-2010 Cavs-Lebron era Tonight. I worry they do not have a consistent enough second weapon in big games to compliment Giannis. Their second best player tonight was Divincenzo - not going to cut it in pursuit of a long playoff run.

Hopefully is no injuries next year could be the greatest NBA season of all time
LeBron/AD Lakers most likely again together
Clippers
Luka going for an MVP
Zion and Ja now with experience
Denver now with Porter in the rotation
Portland with Nurkic
Houston still around
Phoenix and the Kings could take a leap as well

Giannis Bucks
Celtics ready to take the leap
Toronto ready to go
Indiana with a year to get Oladipo back
Philly gets it act togethe

Then you add in GS and Brooklyn and the talent level across the league is insane

Aron Baynes with 37 points, 9 threes. How the game has changed lol.

I want to see our guys with a legit 3 point shooting center.

Feel like I have been hearing that the Celtics will "make the leap" for 5 years yet they never do. I don't see it. Have the Bucks and Nets ahead of them for many years to come, not to mention 2-3 more years of LeShowtime, The Clippers, Nuggets, Mavs, GSW, etc. Celtics are a good but not great team.

Why are the Blazers still starting Melo? Are they actually trying to miss the playoffs for some reason?

Nets have parted ways with the Kenny Atkinson. Kyrie Irving is officially a big butt and a smile because that boy is (locker room) poison.
wow that’s shocking. I thought he was pretty good given his roster.
