    I'm looking at ESPN's list of potential 7th seed machups for GS, and 4 teams (OKC,SAS,NOP,MIN) all have a 20% chance of being their opponent, with Denver having a 15% chance. That's ridiculous with 2 games to play.

    Denver's most likely single-spot scenario is the 9 seed, but they still have a >50% chance of making the playoffs. Hoping the Dubs get Denver.

    With two games left, it looks like that Brooklyn pick is most likely settling in at the 8 slot, which would be a huge blow. IMO there's a pretty big falloff after the top 6 picks. Brooklyn is in good position to win tonight (playing Chi), and in a twist of fate their final game is against the Celtics, who I'm fairly certain (with nothing to play for), will tank that game on purpose. So it could actually fall to the #9 projected pick if the Knicks lose their final two. Who do the Kicks play in their final two? The Cavs in both games

    Bummer ; )


    Of course, they could just luck-box their way into the top 5 depending on how the balls bounce, but it's harder now to do that than ever. I wonder who they would take in that 7-9 range. Trae Young? Sexton?

    I wonder if they miss and LeBron looks out the door if they would package one of the young role players and BRK pick to move up 2-4 spots.

    Nance is the only player a team would feasibly want, but he's a cheap expiring contract next season, so he's pretty useless as trade bait. No team would take 1 year of him for a potential team cornerstone. They're stuck with whatever pick they get I imagine.

    Pelicans and Gentry getting lucky playing Kerr and Doc, two of Gentry's last bosses. I think Doc does him a favor and tinkers the lineup or plays softer for his boy.

    Most biased broadcast team is by far the Blazers.

    Celtics can be, but I prefer the odd time that Tommy Heinsohn does a broadcast cause of how outrageous it gets. As for the Spurs, I've never heard their broadcast team.

    But the Blazers have a specific partisan hack on there in Lamar Hurd.

    I've found the Warriors broadcast to be the best.
    “It’s about winning,” Stoudemire said. “You win, you’re going to get on national TV. Simple. In Phoenix, we won — Western Conference finals three, four years, playoffs every year. We won. If you don’t win, nobody really wants to see you.”

    Elliott is much better than he was. Rockets (if it's still Clyde) are easily worse. Blazers were pretty biased too
