If KD hadn't jumped ship, he still would've been stuck with Westbrick.

Suns got his Euroleague coach so the transition would be easy but personally, any team would be stupid to pass on Ayton. As far as Doncic, I kinda agree with you. I can see him very easily becoming a regular dude just like Dragic, just like Rubio and most other Euroleague phenoms they hype up. NBA is so different man you got tons more athleticism here than in Euroleague, *Censored*s will wear him out real quick.
Dragic never played in the Euroleague and Rubio was praised for his passing ability. He never was a scorer even in Euroleague. Doncic, while only averaging 16, is Euroleague's third highest scorer. While it is just the Euroleague, it is a higher brand of basketball than college or the developmental league.
With that said, Ayton has a huge ceiling offensively. He's not as polished as Cousins coming out of college, but has the same ability minus the attitude. I'd select him number one. I think this class has some pretty good big men. Ayton and Bagley are both good offensively and Bamba looks like a future dpoy.

wow, the refs hoe'd the Celtics with that tech call.

The Celtics stomped the Cavs, but I hear that LeBron is losing on purpose because he knows he'll lose to the Warriors in the finals.

Yeah it doesn't make sense to drop 40 and somehow you still losing on purpose. Cavs need Kevin Love to score at least 20 points to help out.

Probably for stats? I dunno, but it does kind of make sense. If not on purpose, then holy shit this has to be the worst Cavs team with LeBron, and Kyrie's not even playing.
Or maybe Celtics are doing better because Kyrie isn't playing. Lulz
Anyway, Rockets won again. Watch the Warriors win two in a row now, with some help from the refs.

The refs kinda did mess up at the end with that reverse call on Harden's travel.

It's funny that LeBron and the Cavs need Kyrie more than the Celtics do right now. As for the other series, the Warriors are suffering from having too many star guys and not having one clear cut closer when the game is on the line. Everyone seems to get into a frenzy and just whoever has the ball shoots it spontaneously instead of having a set play. Warriors don't seem to do as good in close games as other great teams have in the past.

Love how Steph just laughed.
If the Warriors lose this series, then jeez. Just shows being stacked isn't everything if you can't close, if they lose in a very close game.

It's that time of year for the mandatory Chris Paul playoff-time injury. He's been ruled out for game 6 and who knows after that. Some players are just cursed with bad luck. If it was Kobe he'd just rub his leg a little, grimace, and then just keep balling.
