    Long story short, I think you guys miss having a closer on the perimeter like Jimmy. In the playoffs when the game slows down, you need a guy that can create for himself and go get you that bucket when you really need it.

    Embiid is great but certain Cs can slow him down and thatís when he needs that 2nd go to guy on the perimeter and I dunno if Harris is that guy. I mean this year could be different and they can prove me wrong. Maybe the coaching change will be the difference this year.

    It feels like this point can't be understated. Between the two conferences, no teams will be more well-rested than the Lakers and Nets. The stars on those teams will be returning from injuries, but what will having them fresh after all that rest do for their legs in a long postseason stretch?

    What will be especially fascinating to watch will be the impact that resting those guys has on their seeds and whether the seeding has any impact at all on their postseason performances. If both Brooklyn and LA slip into that 3-5 spot in their respective conferences and still come out on top to make the Finals, will that forever kill any narrative or strategy that seeding should be prioritized over the rest of a team's stars? Or on the flip side, if they end up losing a close series on the road where seeding would have made a difference, does it further enforce the notion that seeding matters?

    Who tf is Derrick Fisher?


    Itís Derek Fisher


    And no, George Hill has never hit a big shot in the playoffs. Hell, heís the guy who missed the free throw in game 1 of the 2018 Finals that led to the JR infamous moment with LeBron yelling at him for not knowing the clock and score.

    George Hill is and will always be an underachieving bum who will fold under pressure.


    He ainít no D-Fish!!!!

    Seeding still matters but when you have legitimate injuries what can you really do. Even if they slide down we all know when healthy either team should be at the top of their respective conferences. But I def get what youíre saying. It seems to matter less and less compared to how seeding was viewed in the past.

    If Lakers do not make the finals, I say it will be Clippers/Nets or Clippers/76ers

    Uh...OK. Donít know what starters youíre talking about. Durant, Harden, Harris, Irving, and Jordan, not to mention Tyler, Blake, and Chiozza. Dinwiddie too, though yeah, heís been out all year.

    Not to mention that Harris was in the whole time. And not to mention that Joel and Ben were back in when the lead was 12, yet they closed to 3 and had a shot at getting it to 1 if Alize didnít take a poor shot.

    But whatever gets you through the night.
