POR just beat up on Utah, earned the 3 seed (vs. Pels).  Utah got a tough draw at the 4 seed (vs. OKC).

It looks like Jazz will not have home-court advantage in round 1.

#1 Rockets hosting the #8 Wolves...#1 Rockets sweep.
#2 Warriors will give the #7 Spurs a rematch of the century...#2 Warriors sweep.
#3 Blazers will go head to head with #6 Pelicans...#6 Pelicans in 7.
#4 Thunder will duke it out with #5 Jazz...#5 Jazz in 6.

I wonder how many career highs are made by players on the last day of the season. My guess is a lot.

[dang], Warriors really lucked out avoiding OKC AND Jazz in either round (neither will make WCF).

Neither Rockets nor Warriors sweep, but probably win in 5-6.

I think Blazers and Thunder win their series', but more faith in Jazz to pull "upset" than Pelicans.



East looks like funner matchups.

Pretty much, lol. Just look at Avery Bradley.

Fultz got his first triple double last night.

Happy for the kid.

I can't believe that it's come down to the final game of the season for the Timberpups to actually have to win & make the playoffs.

I had made a $50 bet with a friend at the beginning of the season that MINN would make the playoffs.  Thought it was going to be easy money.  Now I get to sweat out tonight.  At least the game is in Minn.

Won my $50....barely.   :P

If you're Minny, you explore all options of trading Wiggins this offseason, right? KAT and Butler have to the be the core and you need to surround them with more shooting. Either that or Wiggins has to become the defense stopper he's physically capable of being. He's just too passive defensively and inefficient offensively to work there as is.

Yeah, that was a horrible contract. More to the point, who's going to want him?
Look what I got in our celticsblog mock deadline for him. I was able to get Kemba Walker AND a 1st rounder. I had to take back Batum, but I was also able to get rid of Teague and Muhhammad. It's not like his contract makes him untradable, he still has value.
Dude...what you can get for a player in a fantasy draft/basketball game against, who the heck knows.....possibly little kids or uninformed/inexperienced/unintelligent people and what you can trade Wiggins for when dealing with actual professional basketball executives and experts are two different things. If you really think Wiggins is the same value as what you got for him in a fantasy basketball game, I don't know what to tell you except to stop playing 2K18 so much.
Dude...Obviously I'm not saying he's worth that simply because I was able to trade him for that much. I just brought it up to respond to the notion that he is untradabale and isn't an asset. I thought it might be fun to discuss. No need to get your panties in a bunch lol.
CB Mock Deadline - Minnesota Timberwolves
Kemba Walker / Tyus Jones / Aaron Brooks
Jimmy Butler / Jamal Crawford / Treveon Graham
Rodney Hood / Nic Batum / Marcus Georges Hunt
Taj Gibson / Nemanja Bjelica / Jonas Jerebko
KAT / Derrick Favors / Cole Aldrich
Picks - 2018 CHA 1st (Lotto protected), none out

Sorry, but after rereading your post 3 more times, it still sure seems like you are saying Wiggins has value because of the return you got for him in a fantasy basketball game. If that's not what you were trying to convey, that's cool but reread your post. It sure does seem that's what you were trying to say.
