It doesn’t matter. They’ll be the 2 seed.

Guards are too small to be effective vs Celtics. O, as for last nite, Dame shot 9 for 29 and All-Universe #34 found the bottom of the net on only 1 of 6 free throws. BTW, da Fawns lost by 3 in double OT to a LeBron less Laker teem, hey?

I’d have traded Giannis years ago.

And barely lost at the team you say they can't be effective against without Giannis a couple games ago.

It's the end of the regular season and they're more or less locked into the 2 seed.  Giannis's and Dame's talents are good enough to carry them.  If Khris is healthy, they'll have a chance.

Playoff picture in west is pretty intriguing.

Looking likely that Lakers/Warriors end up 9 and 10 which means one of them would be guaranteed to not make playoffs

Everyone is basically hoping to avoid whatever seed the Nuggets end up at.

Thunder/Wolves can’t like the idea of ending up the 3 seed and drawing Durant

But suns could also still end up in play in too. Lakers, warriors and suns all in play in would be nuts

Am I alone thinking this may be the end for LeBron? He has made comments lately about retirement and it sure appears like Bronny isn't going to be in the NBA next year or for maybe a few more years, if ever.  Plus, he has played a lot this year. Makes me wonder if this is the last great push to win his 5th ring then hang it up.

I don’t see that guy quietly retiring on impulse.

It’ll be drawn out.

LBJ talks about retirement anytime he realizes he has no shot at a title.  Anything to be the center of attention.

But, according to him, he's uncomfortable receiving praise.

 ;D Very true. Humility is not one of his strengths.

Maybe I'm reading to much into it, but it seems like the Bronny situation has taken the wind out of his sails.

I would not begrudge him if he does the retirement tour thing. I think his fans would like it.

Retiring while he is still one of the greatest players in the world would be a rare thing for an athlete to do.

I don't see it, but I guess it could happen.

We can await word on the 1-hour TV special he arranges with ESPN.

Maybe he will take a page from so many boomer bands and have more than one farewell tour.

I hope he plays as long as he can.  He makes a lot of the right people mad.

I'd agree that he is still a top 10 player and uncommon for player like that to retire. But there was Jordan, Megatron, Barry Sanders, Luck, Mayweather, Bobby Jones......

He has the records, he has the money, I don't see the Lakers getting better and the Bronny dream seems to have evaporated.

I'm just observing that, on top of the very obvious fact he is very close to the end, some of the other factors seem to be lining up for retirement.

Jordan wasn't a top-10 player when he retired for good, but your point is well-taken. And it doesn't change what I said: It's rare for a great athlete to retire when he is still among the best in his or her profession.

Agree with the rest of your points. I just don't see it happening, but I could be wrong.

Also this:

I hope he plays as long as he can.  He makes a lot of the right people mad.

ESPN Sources: Charlotte has been granted permission to interview Sacramento’s G League coach Lindsey Harding for head coaching opening. Harding - a former No. 1 overall WNBA draft pick — was G League’s coach of the year for Stockton and advanced to Western Conference Finals.

My prediction, which as always is worth absolutely nothing: Bronny follows Enfield, and a bag of NIL money to SMU/Dallas. LeBron makes a push to be traded to Dallas to join Kyrie and Doncic for another push at titles.

Dallas drafts (or signs) Bronny so they can play together.
