    I don't think the Griz and Pels make the playoffs in the West.
    MacLean's Law: Everywhere you go there will be a jerk. Corrolary: If you go somewhere by yourself you become a jerk.

    I don't care where anyone chooses to go in free agency. I really don't. Yes, KD "broke" the NBA for a year or two, but I can't blame him for going to the team that fit what he wanted.

    The worst part about the Warriors winning is that now I can't have an opinion without being a "homer" or a "hater". It used to be that dialogue had merit independent of accusations.

    It's possible. Lillard will keep Portland relevant and Utah/Denver won't be terrible either. I do think Memphis will make it because Conley/Gasol are still quality players in the league and Dave Fizdale knows what he's doing.

    As for the Pelicans, I just think they have too much at stake not to make it. Everybody in that organization's job is on the line this season and Cousins is in the final year of his contract. With Rondo now there on a one year deal also, they have a lot of pressure to produce. I see them squeezing in.

    If the Sixers make the playoffs Sam Hinkie is your retroactive GM of the Year.
