    2nd half meltdown. We saved our worst basketball of the season for the playoffs. What a shame.

    Knicks have 26 points in the second half... turned midnight and we became a pumpkin.

    Give them credit for shooting the 3 all
    Season, but we knew that was a miracle.... as it turned out, it couldn’t be sustained in the post season.

    But, remember, we achieved what we set out to do. Now the work to rebuild this roster begins.

    RB and AB aren’t necessary. Good bye...

    Rose, IQ, Obi, Noel and a rookie will
    Be the second unit.

    Let’s see who our starting 5 is come OcT

    We need one of these Trae Youngs to run the point and one of these Clint Capelas to dominate the paint and we’ll be in business. Not sure realistically what we can do this off-season though.

    Good news is we now have a handful of young guys who actually have played playoff basketball. Been a long time since we could last say that.

    Philly vs Hawks will be the same as Philly vs Wizards .. Thibs is not a postseason coach, it's been a decade since Thibs been in the 2nd round of the playoff

    Oh well. It’s been a fun season.

    We got a few months to talk off-season, fellas. As for now, I’m taking a little break. After this last season, I’m exhausted.

    Burks, Bullocks, Taj, and D.Rose are KEEPERS. !!!
    Noel got to go!
    Barrett must be traded on draft night.
    Randle could be traded in the offseason.

    We hope Mitchell is that presence, if not dealt for something. Noel injury really helped ATL. Clint was battling our third string C.

    Where was Clint for Harden and HOU? He’ll be a zero next round.

    ATL 31-12 under AI’s backcourt buddy’s guidance. N8 McMill!

    We finish 16-4 and secured 4 seed. We had a good year, they had a better one... but they were ahead of us, so it’s not a surprise.

    We got some work to do but we are on the right path....

    Hawks turned the tables on us, playing D on us, difference maker was Hunter who we did not see in regular season. Didn’t see Capela either in some of the games and we were outmatched at the 5 with MRob out. I feared a healthy Hawks team before the series began and I was right.

    I’m not shocked we got waxed in the playoffs. I said back in March…

    “We improved but weren’t really a good basketball team, above average but nothing special and when facing the better teams in the league we’re exposed”

    I also spoke to the league not being sound competitively speaking due to all the influx of player injuries, fatigue, and player disinterest to being their best every night. It became okay to throw away several gms because teams put less of a premium on the regular season, with a select few stocked for postseason play

    So what we witnessed this yr was in imbalance in competition and not being able to accurately gauge how good teams are. Which is why I’ve hated the Lebron Era so much, he cheapened the product

    As far as the team…The garbage getting Bulls gang back together again needs to be barred and banned. I will not watch them next yr if any ex Bulls from that Thibs era returns or is signed aside from trading for Jimmy Butler

    1) Get Derrick Rose off this team, Respectfully!!! Find a Real Point guard for crying out loud

    2) Pay Julius Randle

    3) Pick up RJ’s option(s) if available and not already done

    4) Do not re-up any expiring contract unless absolutely necessary

    5) We need to sign/trade for players who will speed up our pace offensively

    Rose is fine, if he’s the backup PG. Actually, he’s an asset in that role.

    Sign a real PG, get a real shooter. Let RB and AB walk...

    ATL brought in all these free agents bc this was their year to make a move.... We returned the same lineup that won 17 games... no shame and nothing shocking at this result.


    The tough decisions involve what to do with RJ and Mitch, as it plays out in your pursuit for a legit star.

    Sign 2 nice pieces and trade for a stud and we are golden.

    We also possess a bunch of picks.

    Remember, we wanted Gallinari and BB but were spurned. Fortunately, the oft injured GH signed in CHa...

    Must bring in the RIGHT guys...

    Strongly Disagree on Rose on both tour of duties, he simply isn’t needed if we actually address our PG issue

    If IQ isn’t the solution and he’s likely not, then IQ is the backup point guard…THE END!

    We need a Kyle Lowry or Kemba Walker without the $35mil price tag. A PG who truly can run a team, play a full season, doesn’t need to score but is capable, and can get us 8-10ast/night
