***2019-2020 NBA Season Thread***


Recommended Posts

I see articles on ESPN about the Spurs being in the hunt for Durant. Kawhi, KD, LMA, and Pop.

If that happens, Lebron opts out and signs with Golden state. No chance he just accepts never winning another title.

NBA seems to love firing playoff coaches  

 

Joeren made playoffs every time during his 3 years in Memphis. Vogel only missed the playoffs once and that was without George. And Monty Williams was fired from New Orleans after a sweep. 

 

In comparison the NHL only fires playoff coaches in dire circumstances. For instance Boudreau was sacked after 4 straight Game 7 losses, with his team up 3-2.

I could understand coaches being wary of Memphis until they change up their front office.  They've been at the bottom of the league in three point shots made the last four years (27th, 29th, 30th, and 30th).  They've had years with two bigs that can force the defense to double inside and pass well, but they've failed to sign player on the perimeter that can take advantage of that.  They didn't have a coaching problem, they have a front office seemingly trapped in the wrong era.

MIAMI -- Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas will miss the remainder of Toronto's second-round playoff series against the Heat with a sprained right ankle, the team announced Sunday.

MIAMI -- Heat center Hassan Whiteside has a sprained MCL in his right knee, the team announced Sunday following an MRI.

Whiteside injured his right knee early in the second quarter Saturday and was ruled out for the rest of Game 3 against the Toronto Raptors. He is day-to-day, according to the Heat, but the typical recovery time from such injuries is at least a couple of weeks.

 

The severity of the sprain was not announced.

So the Heat and the Raptors most likely each lost their centers for series.  Lots of key injuries this post season.

Al Horford looks like the biggest softest puss in the NBA.

Fairly overrated too IMO.

He gets on my nerves

Like you can just look at him and see he isn't about that life

Those are the Hawks in general. Their style of play doesn't translate to the playoffs. You need stars with killer instinct.
