    Pipe dream.

    It's okay to dream though.

    I really don’t give a shit what the Lakers do and don’t do. I’m just talking Basketball.

    It's so strange how the Wolves are suddenly a good team. They've won 9 of 12. They're currently the 10th seed (lol) but they now have a winning record and if they keep things going they'll be a force later on.

    Damian Lillard

    If you're the Lakers, NO DOUBT you want Lillard, but NO WAY the Trailblazers will give him up for the package L.A. will be offering.

    I'm sure we'd agree that Lillard + LeBron > Wall + LeBron

    Lillard is the perfect PG for LeBron.

    Something dastardly in Portland would have to happen. Lillard has 3 years left on his deal. It's just not possible right now.

    Cavs trade Hill and Dekker to the Bucks.

    Really looking forward to the East playoffs w/o Lebron.

    Cavs won that trade. Delly plays hard for Cleveland. Henson had upside potential

    Only cuz of the picks. Hill should be solid in the Bucks system this year and they cleared major cap space

    Things are already uncomfortable in Philly. I'm sorry Sixer fans. Chicago and Minnesota are here if you need to talk about it now or in the future.

    Things are fine in Philly. 2nd best record in the conference. The media is trying to make this a Butler thing and it's not.

    Embiid needs to grow up and stop worrying about his stats. They're winning. Bottom line.

    I dont think it'd be an issue if he wasn't being used as a stretch 5. That's not his game at all

    Perhaps. They'll figure it out. But this isn't the "Butler is a cancer" story that everyone wants to hear.

    Embiid is frustrated by his usage. He himself mentioned the change taking place as a result of bringing Butler on board. He said that to the media instead of the coach, owner, or Butler. Now some fans and media personnel are saying Embiid needs to grow up, while others are saying "here we go again."

    Can they still win? Sure. Jordan's Bulls and Kobe's Lakers still won despite a bit of turmoil. The Warriors will probably win this year despite the serious disfunction.

    But things are not fine.

    The Lakers should be on a 6 gm winning streak right now if not for the refs last night in TX.

    Huge W on the road tonight in the 2nd of a back to back. It's starting to come together consistently.

    That's on Embiid not Butler. Media is making a mountain out of a molehill. Butler is assimilating just fine.
