    They were discussing the future of Mike D’Antoni and that their GM Morey said they want him back but D’Antoni might not want to return and could wind up signing with another team.

    I wonder if that was the case with Donovan that he wanted to go back to college coaching or explore another NBA opportunity, he put together a nice season and exceeded expectations with most predicting they wouldn’t make the playoffs this season so his departure was a surprise. Wouldn’t be surprised if Bucks fire Bud tomorrow and hire Donovan to replace him.

    Hell of a game in the bubble between TOR BOS in a double OT win by TOR to force a game 7. I was thinking during the game that this was like a great MMA fight when two fighters trade blows with both teams trading made 3s or layups. Mark Jackson compared it to a Frazier/Ali fight to reinforce my comparison. Both teams left it all on the court playing tough defense and great offense, looking visibly gassed at the end. Lowry with 33pts on 12/20 with 6 3s but Norman Powell gets my game ball with his 23 pts on 6/11 including 3 3s, gritty D and clutch pts in the OT.

    Remember when Dolan squashed Lowry trade bc MU worked him over twice, on the Melo and Bargs trade...

    Remember the adage, third time is the charm.

    MU should thank Dolan, not knock him... MU the tool who almost dealt Lowry away. No Lowry and no title.

    You see, you need to get lucky some times and sometimes the trades you donít make...

    NP Raptor teammates thought like me about Powell with this ESPN headline.

    Kyle Lowry clutch, but Norman Powell 'saved our season,' Raptors' Fred VanVleet says

    Mike D'Antoni not returning as HC of the Rockets on expiration of his contract, probably a good move for him with the lack of cap flexibility and draft picks for the Rockets after the CP3 and Westbrook trades. They also have contract decisions on PJ Tucker and guys like Rivers, Mclemore, Green, Carroll on minimum contracts that will probably be playing elsewhere. Rox are a team in flux that have an uncertain future despite having 2 MVP stars On their roster.

    D'Antoni now becomes one of the top coaching talents available on the market along with Donovan.

    Clips now down 6 with 5 mins left in the 3rd. Clips paying for doubling the Joker in the post and Denver making them pay with his game high 9 dimes for both teams. No one told these Nuggets that the Clips have the deepest team in the NBA, they have no fear. Malone has these guys believing in themselves.

    Calling for an upset of the Clips by the Nugs with 9 mins left after Lou Williams misses a chippie layup and earlier Green winds up to dunk but sends his shot to mid court after he hits the rim on his miss. Kawhi 6/19, PG 4/12. Clips now down 15 with a little over 8 mins left and Jokic on the bench.

    The Clips have one FG in the 4th, they can't make a shot. PG on a wide open corner 3, hits the side of the backboard.

    Clippers about to get ousted. For a team that brought in Kawhi and PG13, gutting their future assets in the process, this must be pretty disappointing.

    Kawhi and PG13 both came up small in game 7. Clippers traded away 6 1st round picks in the last year to build this team.

    Maybe its time for the Clips to move on from Doc after this loss.

    Well, the last piece acquired in the Carmelo trade steps up carries his team to the CF, along with his second round All Star C Joker triple-DUB sidekick...

    Incredible.

Changes are coming in MIL with Bud looking like he'll be collecting unemployment soon.
    Giannis wins his 2nd straight MVP award but closes his press conference with this, I'm a proponent of including post season performance as a factor in deciding the MVP. Giannis was asked about his future in MIL and he said he could see playing 15 years there, so much for the Knicks signing him after MIL gives him that super max extension.

    ďDonít call me MVP. Donít call me two-time MVP until Iím a champion.

    Bulls hire Billy Donovan as head coach.

    Doc Rivers and the Clips part ways. Ty Lue my guess as the next Clips HC.
