    One could begin getting the sense that if everyone play stout defense and then on offense essentially run in circles around Jokic then he'll either find you or cash it in himself.
    Anyhow, it's to the point now where even deep role players going down is a huge punch to the gut. and as thin as the Nugs are getting now, and especially if they begin lacking a tenacious defense as was the case for stretches last night, then they'll never make it out of the first round.

    Prior to last night and more guys going down, and considering how great they were responding to adversity, it was looking as though they'd be a very tough out. I can't say that today.

    It really is going to come down to who matches up with whom in the first round. If the Nuggets draw Dallas or Portland, I think you have to like their chances. If they draw the Lakers, it depends on the health of Lebron and AD. The Lakers are almost definitely going to finish 5th, 6th or 7th. I'm sure the Lakers would prefer to get the Nuggets in the first round instead of the Clippers, especially with Murray out. If the Lakers fall to 7th (which is very possible), they are likely looking at a one game playoff with the Warriors, with the winner advancing to play either the Suns or the Jazz. The loser would play the winner of probably the Grizzlies and Spurs, with the winner advancing to play either the Suns or Jazz and the loser going home.

    Well, outside of a miracle Denver's not winning a title this year. They're not. I suppose getting more playoff experience for vets and any at all for the younglings is a plus, and then regroup next season and make the legitimate title run that was so abruptly taken away from them in recent weeks.

    Arrrrrrrgh. They're fucking close dude. Hopefully Murray will have an even better and more experienced team to come back to next season and the Nuggets can finally really go get this thing.

    It takes both skill and luck to win a title. The Lakers had basically everything go their way last season. This season has been a different story, with the major injuries to AD and Lebron.

    Yeah, doesn't look good hobbling into the post-season. Hope fades. Mine certainly has.

    Nuggets know they had no excuse losing that game a couple nights ago.

    Sorry, New York.

    This is related to the Shitty Progressive Ideas thread as much as the NBA thread.

    I was not aware that these girls were quite so delusional. This is incredible.

    The WNBA average salary has actually gone up a fair bit in recent years and it's a pretty good game. I think they just signed an 8 year CBA and i can see the league getting much bigger. Hoping Toronto gets a franchise as my it would be a whole more feasible than bringing the kids to Raptors games.

    Can the Lakers join the WNBA? Kidding. Sort of.
