Thats IT, but what about the other 5 or 6.I know they're clearing cap space but i reckon that someones on the way and they're not saying for now.Its all about LBJ,and keeping him happy.Hes probably doing the wheeling and dealing with the homies.

Well watching stuff last night about it , they moved Wade on because they had too many point guards & they were going younger & he would get less minutes .Rose was just too unstable & he had issues going awol & questioning if he was good enough to come back from injury .He nearly retired a few months ago. Shumpert surprised me but he was kind of a streaky player . Crowder was just plain poor & wasn't working out . It already explained .Channing Frye is 36 , they are trying to go younger .
LeBron I think now was definitely pulling strings in the background. They are claiming he knew about the trades before the Timberwolves game & there was a stark improvement in his game that night .
The owner is trying to make moves to keep LeBron because they are finished as a contender without him .

Cs poor run continues . They've really gone off the boil . Have been poor in the last 30 games , think they are just over 500 in them . And they've a bigger break between games now . Toronto finally leading by virtue of percentage . Not sure what Brad is gonna have to do to wake them up .

Well , we are in the home stretch now after the All Star break & C's thankfully are on a 4 game winning streak . They still trail the Raptors but only by 1 game , but are playing the Rockets tonight who have a thin lead with best record in the NBA . Harden looks nailed on for MVP . Remarkable considering that will be 3 players from the 2012 finalist OKC to win it . If only they could have all stuck together , OKC could have been lethal now .
Philly are a real joy to watch ATM , they could shock a few teams in the playoffs . Talk they are trying to get LeBron to go there . He would be a great fit next season . He'd be mad to go to the Lakers .

Rockets win in a great game apparently . Another closing stage collapse by Boston . Can't complain , they stole the first game off Houston . Rockets 15th straight win .

It was a poor performence from the Celtics down the stretch. A rebound made here and a few balls not turned over and it's a different game. Also Kyrie trying to miss a free throw and making it and then trying to miss again and missing the rim altogether. I mean another day they go your way.

Kyrie is good to go tonight or that's the way it sounded yesterday. The raptors are 1.5 games ahead so the Celtics need to keep winning as they play the raptors twice before the end of the season.
The west from 3rd to 10th is tighter than a duck arse. I think between no 3 and 10 the game behind difference from Houston is only 2 games. Also the lakers(who won last night after a strange call) if you swapped their loses and wins around they'd be no4 seed or there abouts.

I hadn't actually noticed that about the West ! .I think the boat has sailed for the Lakers making the playoffs . I hear Lonzo has been decent lately . I'm glad tbh . He got a lot of shit because of his dad's meddling . Now , he hasn't been great for periods of the league & was out with injury . But if he didn't have all that extra attention on him throughout the season he might have been better . I still think Lebron would be mad to go there next year . But if they can get Paul George then things might change . OKC seem to be imploding with that waste of space Anthony .
As for the Celtics , they had a great start but I think where they are now is probably what we expected of them without Hayward . Ive no idea how they'll do in the playoffs . But I fear they could get bounced by any one of the Bucks , Philly , Washington , Toronto & of course Cleveland in a 7 game series . They desperately need to secure home court advantage . Toronto just don't seem to be dropping games at all ATM .

Ah that Hayward injury!! No the raptors are winning games messy but still winning them. There's no pictures in the standings as the old saying goes.
