    Nets and the Magic are in the playoffs. Clifford a great job down in Orlando and Atkinson and Marks a great job in Brooklyn. Really don't know how Kenny wins those games at the end without a big man in at the end but it's working.

    Brooklyn-Brooklyn Nets !!!
    No sports analyst or writer put the Nets in the post-season games this season !!!

    Tiger .... I put the Kings in the post season games this season, but when the Kings traded Shump (vet-DEFENSE) on the February trade dead-line it took the Kings out of the play-off race.

    This seemed inevitable with a pissed off Lebron James in town. Magic Johnson stepping down as President of the Lakers. He says he wants to go back to having fun. Not going to crap on Magic, despite the result, because he has always been one of the nicest guys in the game and I’m not sure anyone else is going to do any better with the job.

    Most of the work on an NBA team is done by the GM so what happens with Pelinka? My guess is Jeanne Buss fires him, it would be amazing if she calls PJ out of exile to replace Magic to hire the new GM. Luke would keep his job if PJ is there but he's probably out if another GM like David Griffin is hired. Lebron is going to have a say on Griffin if he becomes a candidate you would have to imagine.

    Weirdest thing is you tell ESPN you quit before you tell your boss who paid you several million dollars to come to work for her.

    Magic trades away Russell, R-Lopez, Zubec, Nance, and let Randle walk.

    Watches LeBron’s season go bust (mainly bc of these moves and the horrible free agents he signed)...

    Then he walks away, so he can have “fun”, and doesn’t even have the courage to tell his boss eye-2-eye?

    Either some shady stuff happened behind the scenes, between LAK management and LJ vs MJ (which ticked off Magic) or this cat is a tool.

    Three NBA head coach job openings today with the dismissals of Bickerstaff, Joerger and Drew by the Griz, Kings and Cavs respectively. Magic stepping down probably saved or delayed the firing of Luke but I don't see how you can avoid being fired after signing LeBron and then not making the playoffs.

    Kiya wishing Fizdale is next but he probably gets another year like our last 2 coaches.

    Here we go .. It's Post-Season time ....
    How many games will it take the Bucks to beat the Pistons in a series?
    Will the Toronto Raptors sweep the Orlando Magic in the first round of the playoffs?
    Does the Philly 76er's all-star starting lineup need Embiid in the series to beat the Brooklyn Nets?
    Would Boston win a series against the Indiana Pacers if Olidipo were healthy to play?

    The Clippers hard-working coach Doc Rivers won 48 games to become a 8th seeded team in the West Coast ..
    How many wins do you give the Clippers in this series vs the NBA Champions?
    The (54-28) Denver Nuggets team are new to the Post-season games, and Nuggets coach/players will have to learn the scheme of a winning series over-night in a 7-game series vs the mighty Spurs (HOF) 20 yr postseason head-coach Pop?
    Portland vs OKC .... The Battle of the best complimentary PG in the business .. Westbrook vs Lillard .. a dynamic full 7-game series ???
    The (53-29) Houston Rockets dynamic back-court of Harden & CP3 .. are gonna make the Utah Jazz a tougher opponent after the series.

    Lakers fired Luke today. I'd expect LeBrons old war horse Ty Lu to be their next coach.

    What part of the 17-65 record the Knicks front-office didn't understand bout FIRING their FAKE coach David Fizdale ???
    At the end of the 2018-19 regular season the Knicks front-office had 65 reasons to FIRE David Fizdale after the final game of the regular season .. Why are the Knicks going to wait till the 18th regular season game of the 2019-20 season to have a 4-12 record to decide to FIRE BUM coach David Fizdale like the Grizz did ???

    Brooklyn Nets are in the House by winning the first game of the post-season over the 76er's All-Star starting-5 lineup.
    Embiid shooting 5-15 fga, and the 76er's team shooting 3-25 from the 3-ball line .... D'Angelo Russel dynamic postseason game performance makes Magic Johnson decision to quit, and the firing of Luke Walton a good decision for the Lakers.
    Head coach Kenny Atkinson strategic-move and 10 Man rotation out-coached Philly coach Brett Brown throughout all 4 quarters of the game for a 111 - 102 Brooklyn Nets win.

    Hold-On .. we had more under-dog wins in the postseason games today by the Orlando Magic 104 -101 win over the Toronto Raptors .. than the experience Spurs grabbed a 101 - 96 win over the Denver Nuggets in their first game showdown.

    Bad couple of weeks for Luke, first the Lakers fire him and then this. What next his wife filing for divorce?

    Suns also fired their rookie coach Igor Kokoskov. This was a surprise to me since like Fizdale he wasn't hired to win but to develop the young players. Seems to have been caught in that front office shakeup in PHX like Hornacek was when they fired PJ.

    How do you know when your league is broken? When a team without 2 star players rolls its way to another championship.
