Is NO really good, or POR really bad?

I am looking forward to a GSW and NO series.  Not sure NO has a shot, but it will be fun to see this.

And what does all this say about Demarcus Cousins?

I know it can't be as simple as addition by subtraction right?

Bummer Miami couldn't pull out the win today.

I've been rooting for Miami because it would have been nice to see them upset the media darling Sixers.  I just don't like that team, or their arrogant fans (especially all the closet Sixers fans on this site).  Also, I always have liked watching Wade, so seeing him make one last playoff run would have been cool

Oh well, looks like we'll have to listen to more pathetic Sixers hype for a while.

It could also be that Nikola Mirotic fits seamlessly on the team.

He does.  And more of the offense goes thru Rondo/Jrue with Cousins out.

And Davis is forced to play more center on defense.

It actually can be a mix of both things at the same time.

I think Davis has scored 14 points in the last 9 minutes of the game.

I guess the big man era ain't over yet.

The Sixers fans on this site aren't closet fans. They've come out of the closet and shown themselves to be full fledged Sixer fans, over and over again.

And it's over. 

I don't think anybody saw that coming.

Welp, as far-fetched as they already were, this series sweep should pretty much put the kibosh on any further AD to Boston posts. Fair or not, he’s going anywhere now, not that he ever really was.

There are a lot of people who went all-in arguing in favor of The Process when things were bad in Philly who are now very invested in their success.

The Process does seem to have worked out. They have two superstar players and several quality supporting pieces and they'll probably add a major free agent this summer (Paul George?).

Of course the Celts are in arguably just as good a position and only sucked for one season.
